Good morning Stamp Addicts. I had a busy night last night with getting blog post up for PSC, then I had to do the links to the websites that I submitted my Pins card to which I had forgotten to do earlier. There were a bunch of them. Went with another lady to visit a 3rd lady from church. It turned out to be longer than I had expected but that was my fault because I got there way earlier than I was supposed to. She didn't say anything because she loves to chat and was happy to have someone to talk to.

Paige, thanks so much for telling me what to check on the Comments deal on Blogger. I haven't had a single spam now!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!

Back to the DOTW!!! All the catalogs and magazines you're getting rid of - or have gotten rid of, where did you take them? I took mine to a local Thrift Store but felt bad about that since someone may have liked them. Some of the magazines I mailed to Laura (who used to be on SA long ago) as she was looking for something to read while going through chemo. Any suggestions on where to take them, etc....

Lynn
I don't really have a place to take magazines to that would be interested in them, so mostly if I do trash a magazine, I'll just put it in the recycle bin.

We have snow here finally! It is beautiful!

Charlynn and all- my real name is Michaella...... I had a nun in 1st grade that could not pronounce my name, and there was already a Michelle and a Mickey in the class, so she called my Shelly and that is my nick name ever since..... I only heard Michaella + middle name- when I was in trouble.....hehehe Nowadays when I hear it, it is usually a tele-marketer pronouncing it incorrectly I might add!

Working on a brick patio design today and working tomorrow- then my stretch off! Yeah. We have finally hear that my son has his passport, so have booked the airline flights to and through the cities we will go to in China. That is a relief. We still have to get a Visa and a place to stay on the first and last leg of the trip..... I cannot wait to finally see Katie!

Have a great day,
Shelly
Is this the first snow you've had this year?? Gosh, the winter is almost over now.

I love hearing everyone's name stories. I had a run-in with a first grade nun myself, but that's a whole different story.

What are you doing to the back patio? Yeah that son has a passport now. When are you leaving on your trip? Sounds fabulous!

We are going mid-April- Beijing, Yangshuo, Shenzhen and Hong kong. Katie lives in Shenzhen- she will meet us in Beijing : ) We are going to fly to San Francisco and meet our son, then fly to Beijing together. He will fly home from HK directly to Denver and we are going straight to Chicago......

Check out this picture of Yangshuo:
It is linked to Facebook, so if you are not on FB, you may not be able to see it....
SO PRETTY !

Shelly
Sounds like it's going to be a fabulous trip. That picture is just beautiful.

I know a couple from church that are in China in Mei Chi. Not sure where that is in conjunction with where you are going. They teach at a school there for Chinese children. Make sure to take lots and lots of pictures. I know you're so excited to see Katie again.

Some small town excitement here!!!!!

Don't know who out there saw it, but if you watched any of the commercials from the Super Bowl, they had one about being a farmer - with Paul Harvey speaking. It was a Dodge Ram commercial. Anyway, they showed photos of farms, farmers, etc.....and one of the first pictures in the commercial was a guy from Hondo - a CPA/farmer - here that I've known for years. The very last photo was of his son, Eric.......he was my daughters boyfriend in high school!!!!! No one (including Eric and his dad) knew they were going to be in that commercial - they just thought it was for some type of photo shoot. Pretty cool!! I was talking to my daughter afterward and she said - mom, how did Eric get so good looking......he was never that cute in high school!!! LOL!! I told her she should have hung on to him!!!!!!

Just thought y'all would like to hear the Hondo "buzz" for the week!

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!

Lynn, that is so interesting about the commercial! WOW! Your DD shoulda hung onto him! (I'm surprised they didn't know about the commercial - but guess those Super Bowl commercials are so big they have to keep everything a secret!)

Maxine, enjoy the hugs/snuggles!

Maggie, hope life slows down a bit! (I feel for you because my life has been exceptionally busy lately!)

Sweet P, I wish you well with the end of OR1 and going back to fulltime work. EEK! And the doctor appointment, too.

Hugs to all the Stamp Addicts!

What fun to see yourself on TV. I saw on the news that the man who was in the Clydesdale commercial is originally from Texas.

No problem Paola. I just thought it was funny since that was my name growing up. Actually my given name is Margaret which I always hated when I was younger.

Glad to hear that your done with the OR1 and back to work. I hope you're happy about that! Good luck with your dr. appt. Yes, there are some doctors that you have to make appointments for way in advance.

Good morning Stamp Addicts.

I went visiting again last night so that took a chunk of time out of my schedule. Didn't get a whole lot done.

Today is weigh in so I'll let you know how that goes.

Hello all!

Maggie- you have been busy! I love the name Margaret.....: ) and Maggie too- that was almost Stephanie's name.....

Lynn- how fun is that- I will have to google that commercial again.

Paola- are you a nurse? OR- Operating Room? Hope you transition back is a smooth one!

Jeanette and Maggie and all- You are all Super awesome stamping ladies to me!!!

Maxine- love the idea of playing and cuddling with babies : ) Lucky you- enjoy!

I got a crown this AM ....not shiney and no bling hehehe....and the temp came off, so had to go back tonight again and get it re-seated. I am hoping I make it through 2 weeks with no issues- meaning no need for a root canal!!!

We are having some a winter storm here- it was freezing rain this AM, then rain, now really heavy wet snow- perfect for snowmen : ) This area needs the moisture alot...so I am not too unhappy.

Tomorrow, will have some stamping time- yeah!

Shelly

nope...I don't think I am nurse material....I shudder at the sight of a needle...actually I have to turn away when they take blood...lol

I am not sure of the meaning of OR (it's a physiotherapy program)
the # 1 (OR1) means that a worker partecipates in the program 4 hrs a day and OR2 for 6 hrs a day...It is supported by WCB workers compensation board) and it can run from 2,4,or 6 weeks, depending on the type of injury...
In my case it involved 1 hr of stretching + 2hrs of cardio + 1hr acquagym every day until I started my GRTW (gradual return to work) In that case I did 3 hrs program in the am + 2.5 hrs at my reg job in the pm....
Gradually I was reinstated back full time...This last week I did M/T at work full time, W=4hrs OR1, Th/F at work full time.

I hope your tooth won't give you any more trouble S....yikes....xox

oh gosh! I ALMOST wrote the other name down again....so I kept only the initial M on my other post...ehhehe
My own Dr made the apptm for me...and still took so long!...
We shall see what the specialist has to say...

Yes I am quite happy to be back at work...I truly LOVE my job...but DISLIKE immensely all the burocracy involved and hypocrisy of the 'system', especially 'favoritism' in the working place!! I was put in a diff. position w/out my knowledge.....found out the first day of work, last Sept. that I wouldn;t be working w/ my sweet girl L. anymore....instead I was given 'my' twins...two gorgeous diamonds in the rough...♥♥
These girls should have NEVER ever been put in SAME classes together...
they feed off each other too much drama...and risk losing their own individuality....All through their elem. schooling were always separated and in diff classes...last year only ONE had full E/A coverage while the other was on her own....but now...because of the almighty dollar they are 'forced' in same classes and activities...NONE of their teachers are happy...none!
I had collegues coming to me,shaking their heads, seeing what I deal with day in and day out....yet these girls love me...and I do care a LOT for them...
they're 'my' girls now ♥ ....and yes, they can drive me batty....daily!...lol
I have to say that when I had to leave last Nov. their behaviour, although far from perfect, was NOT the same they display now *sigh*....so much has changed since ,also because the school decided to cave in to one of the twins request to forgo following the weekly behavioral chart I had put in place for each of them....which worked remarkably may I add....I was actually quite upset THAT happened and told the VP about it, well...what do you know?....The chart is now back...as of last Mon!....One of the girls is already showing good choices....(the chart is used to record their GOOD/BEST behaviour...we gladly reward that, if the effort shows consistency...always reinforcing the POSITIVE, always!)

oh my...I msut have wrote a whole chapter...lol...sooorrryyyyyyyyyyyyyy...
I tend to get very passionate talking about my job!

One last thing.....
(I posted the following on my Mo Manning swap thread
....and hopefully you won't mind it here....)

I would like to ask all of you gals for some prayes request pleaseeeee
at the moment there is a VERY tough situation w/my girls at work (14yo twins)
I really feel for their Mom too...as she's at the end of her rope...so to speak...especially with one of them whose beahviour is very questionable....
I can't say what's going on (and won't, as it wouldn't be professional on my part)
suffice to know I am so grateful that there could be extra prayers
out there for them and me...TXS!♥

Good morning Stamp Addicts! TGIF!

I'm happy for today - it's casual Friday at work and my boss will be out of town today. Yeah!

Paola, what is the grade that you teach? I think teaching is the greatest profession in the world! You have to have the patience of Job. I hope you can get your girls back on track again.

Morning Stamp Addicts!! Wow, what a crazy week, thanks for overlooking my absence! But, blizzard or not, I took today as a day off for some fun time and stamping.

Maggie: sorry that Thursday's weigh in was disappointing for you But you are right, just keep pressing on and taking it slowly. Years ago I took that approach and lost 20 pounds very slowly. It's now my new weight. You are smart to attack it slowly so that it will stay off.

I need to loose another 20 to be healthy and getting THAT off is another story. (however, I confess to not working at it very diligently)

As for being "super": Each and every one of you are SUPER in my book! And that's not a book that I would ever throw away, donate or recycle, haha!

As for magazines, catalogs, etc. I have donated some to others who are just starting out in card making. But have kept all of my SU catalogs, and several issues of Take Ten and Card Making. Plus DH has given me some hard bound books on card making that I love.

I like to look at them at night while watching TV or in the early morning with my coffee, or if sick in bed. It's restful and not straining on my brain or my eyes, LOL. My computer is not handy to my card making area so it's easier to use them there if CASEing a card or something.

Lynn & Jeanette, I'm a tad jealous of your warmer temps! We are battening down to ride out the blizzard. Not much activity right now, but give it a few hours, it should really pick up then. Not sure about getting online the rest of the weekend, that will depend on electricity and whether the internet service stays up. We have a generator to take care of the electricity issue

Hugs & smiles to each of my Super Addicts!! hehehehehe

Hi Ladies.

I'm at home. On my way to work this morning, I could feel my throat getting scratchy. No time to be sick. Decided that since my boss was out of town that I could get done the few things that needed to be done and then come on home.

I need to go look for my gargle recipe.

Good morning Stamp Addicts!

Scratchy throat turned into a full blown sore throat overnight. I had breakfast and then did my gargle. Too busy to be sick. I need to go to the grocery store, clean the house (kids are coming for dinner tomorrow), work on project and Pins card. I was able to do my card for PSC yesterday.

Morning Stamp Addicts!

Thank you all for the fun, cute and thoughtful birthday wishes!! Very sweet of you!

Maggie: I sure hope that your gargle recipe is magical and clears it up for you! You are right, you have a lot to do so no time (and it's no fun either) to be sick!

Well, since it's STILL blizzarding out, I'm off to play with ink and paper.

I've been thinking of another TAT challenge for us (Try A Technique)...have a few ideas brewing. If anyone has an idea, let me know!

Maxine: give both GK's an extra snuggle from me! Enjoy!

Everyone sure was quiet around here today!!!! It's almost midnight and guess I should have waited until after that to post something - that way I good have beat everyone to say good morning! LOL! Can't sleep it seems! I made FOUR cards today!!!!!! That's got to be a record for me. Two were for DT duties - but I've finished all of those now for the month and can just craft for FUN! Nice to get that off my mind. It's cold and misty/drizzle-y weather here - so what else could I do except craft! Yea!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend - will check in tomorrow.

Lynn
