Just another Manic Monday....

It's Tuesday. Yay. That manic monday is over!! It was a wonderfully horrible day yesterday. I really wanted to hit someone. But you know, it's amazing what your friends will do for you! I had football practice last night after my loooooooong day at work. And it rained. And I got soaked! My dear friend, Kate, who often drives me crazy, was my hero. :) She stopped by, on her way home, REALLY having to go pee and she lent me her jacket so I wouldn't freeze for the rest of practice. Thank you so much, Kate! I totally owe you a very long evening of squid gutting! :) AND THEN, when I returned the jacket, she let me go pee at her house!

I have NOT been in my stamp room since I got my new stuff, so I haven't even tried out the new texture plates. But the new catalogue came out and Heart to Heart punch is on sale, so I'll be putting in an order this week. New Rubbah!!!! I haven't even ordered it yet and I'm excited. And the nice man is the brown shirt and shorts delivers right to my door. I don't even have to go down Cheryl's scary road to pick up my stuff! Yay.

I am hoping to make some cards for the people I work with as a goodbye to them, so stay tuned for some ink! :)

Musketeer Marriage

Some pictures from a really awesome wedding! We had a great time, dealt with a few mishaps, cried some tears, laughed some laughs and danced up a storm! Now, barely recovered, the Three Musketeers are back to their crazy busy lives, trying to find a moment to celebrate a bride's belated birthday and stamp some cards... Good luck with that, hey!
Enjoy the pics! Have a great weekend
Love Lea

PS I need a new camera!

Since when......

Since when was wishing your ex-boyfriend a happy birthday code for "let's get back together". I missed that memo. And apparently, that also means that we can pick up where we left off and being apart for the last 11 months didn't really matter.

*NEWS FLASH: There are some seriously screwed up people out there! *

And my friends were wondering why I was sooooooo stressed out this weekend. That might give you a bit of a clue!

On a happy note, Tanya got married! Congratulations Tanya and Kevin!!! I wish you ALL the BEST!!!

Rain Rain, Go away!

Its been raining a lot lately. Last night, it poured! They even cancelled live racing.

I actually love the rain. It's clean and refreshing. It gives me an excuse to not take Bailey for a walk and curl up and watch a movie and eat popcorn. I love the sound, I love the feel -- even when it's cold. It's kind of like my own personal hug from God to me.

I came home from racing, very wet and cold. I crawled into the tub, then put my sweats on and popped some popcorn! Mmm... We were going to watch Knowing, but 18 kids and counting was on and they were going to Pigeon's Forge. I went there with my sister and her family a few years ago, and it was my FAVORITE vacation spot! So, after the show, I went downstairs to do some laundry. I walked to the laundry room and did some swearing. :) The drain had backed up and there was water everywhere! The good news is that it was clean water. The bad news is that there was water everywhere! Mom was not helpful (she sat in a chair and just watched), dad didn't even come down, and bailey... well, he just kept dropping his ball in the water so I would throw it. The other good news is that I remembered that we paid for some sort of drain to avoid this. Apparently, it didn't work, but when I pulled on it, it was like pulling a plug from a tub and all the water went shooting down the drain.

The whole basement is still soggy, smells like wet carpet (you think wet dog is a bad smell) and my laundry didn't get done.

Hopefully, tonight, i'll get somewhere with the laundry after the Harry Potter movie. (yay:P)

Are you sure it's Friday

I just had the busiest Friday of the last year today. I've been working non-stop. But getting lots accomplished. Yay. I walked by my stamping room and stared wistfully at it last night. Unfortunately, stamping has been taking a back seat to everything else, like walking my dog, getting caught in the rain, doing laundry, working out (blah), cleaning my room, doing more laundry, putting that laundry away, making lunch, cleaning the kitchen, and then crashing into bed. This week has been crazy busy. I can't believe Tanya is getting married in a week! I can't believe all the stuff I have lined up to do that hasn't been done lately!!! Eeeek... Hi, I'd like to buy some daylight!!! Tomorrow, I'm off to help Laura sort out merchandise and finish stocking med kits for football. There's racing tonight and tomorrow night and i'm in the clinic on Sunday. Kate wants to go to a movie tonight..... Maybe sunday will see me in my stamping room.... Hopefully..... My sister wants me to make her a bunch of gift card holder cards. Project! :) Let's just find some time for them! Have a great weekend!

I'm thankful for...

  • the guys who are coming today to cut the grass BECAUSE it meant I was outside, scooping up the poop and happened to see out of the corner of my eye as my "cute little westie" starting to crawl his way under the fence. The good news is I was able to catch him before he got out of the yard and I escorted him to his kennel for the night.

You never thought I'd be thankful for scooping poop, did ya?! I then had to find a way to block that part of the fence! I need some dirt!!!!
