in whatever I could find to keep from falling apart
My husband who has worked for the same company (which will remain unmentioned)
has been laid off...effective March
Why am I telling you ??
So you can pray....and send good thoughts....and mail me any change and heck...even french fries you find under your seats (humor helps me)
This horrible...shocking news however...made for a very productive Me

Oh sure...she has been out of the crib for years...her crib converted into a tiny daybed
and well...now she is looking a little large in that.
So I went to my favorite antique shop...Mom's basement...yes literally my Mom's basement...she has over the years collected the yummiest stuff.
She has the perfect full-sized metal bed....its brown...I may leave it....may paint it...either way..I Love it and it will be perfect and best of all...its FREE.
However we do have to mattress shop....so that is on the to do list....and bedding...and pillows...and of course with any new bed and bedding...comes new decor...so lots of fun to be had in my house this weekend.
I hope you have a weekend with lots of fun stuff going on.....but if you don't...and you are just sitting around...while you're at it...check out these cakes at Larissa Meek .......all I can say is WOW !!!!!
Swing by JaneSays too while you are relaxing...you just might see something you like.
Have a happy day

Oh boy....last night as we ate dinner I peered out the little
Italian restaurant's window and thought now nice it would be if it would begin
right now.....how nice to sit here and eat my lasagna and garlic knots and
watch the snow land softly on the ground
but it was yet a few hours off.
We went to bed last night and as anyone living where we live knows....you can never really
be sure you will get the snow until you see it with your eyes.
Oh.....the letdown......Oh so sorry Chloe....my sweet little child who has
never played in more than 1 inch of snow....ever.
Oh brace yourself honey.....NO SNOW !!!!!! Here is our snow......Yep.....that's it.....all of it
As our luck would have....some force of nature came along and blew the storm a little south
and then a little east....leaving us with nothing more than a little dust
Instead of happily pulling on long johns....boots...and hats
Sweet Chloe plopped herself on the couch...bare feet and all and played a little Build-A-Bear
If you live in a land where you get a lot of snow...I know our depression seems crazy....but geeez...we never get snow...always left out....always skipped over....darn weather patterns.
If you have some right now....won't ya send us a little.....just enough for one snowball
Thanks...that would be GREAT !!
have a happy day

have you seen the personalized fruit roll-ups ?
Go here and check out all the things you can put on fruit roll-ups.
What a cute gift this would be for your kids class on valentine's day....or party favors...oh boy !!
If your team (If you have a team) is out of the running....sorry ....mine is not.
For the Super Bowl Party (yes I am predicting) I need these customized m&m candies...with MY team logo....how fun !!
OK...so two things are bugging me....now these are real serious....any help you have is appreciated.
First...what the heck good is this ion setting on your hair dryer....what is it "supposed" to be doing....and does it do it...mine just accidentally gets fiddled with off and on...high and low....can not ever really tell a difference in my hair....so if you can solve the mystery of this feature....please do.
Second...this one...the hubs and I kindly quarrel about in the car. OK...so I set my heat vents where I want them to blow on me in the car....well when the car makes a turn...the flow of air hits me in a different spot....like turning the car changes the direction of the air coming thru the vent...why do I notice this...well, I do not like the air blowing in my face...too hot...can't breathe...and sometimes when the car turns...its in my face...Ugh...takes my breath away....and I know it was not blowing in my face before...and sure enough as soon as the car straightens up....the air flow goes back where it was pre-turn....does anyone else know what I am talking about ??
now that you think I am a complete freak....
have a happy day
