OH--and I did win a state door prize--a $100 Visa gift card from the Missouri AD Association--there were maybe 40 drawings and over 1000 people at the meeting, so I felt pretty good winning, Three AD's from our state won.

WOW Congrats barb! that's cool, I never win those door prizes/

BTW it is 5 degrees here right now, not sure about WI you are a bit South but much closer to Lake MI than I am.

WOOO WHOO I get happy mail today???? That will be the best part for today! It is s'posed to start snowing around noon and they are talking about 10" of that CR**!


So sorry to hear Mom nature is there, I heard that when she is evil monthly, menopause is WORSE! I so hope that isn't true! My God she has me buckle in pain now, I can not (and do not want to) imagine worse.

Off to see that video, then update my challenge thread, then I am cleaning off my desk.

Great start already this morning, I can see the center, and I organized the right hand side. the left is a major catch all for mail when Clint brings it in here to me, and just things that do not belong in here but my lazy butt won't get up and put them away! LOL
The right is cards that are done with no home right now.
WOW! Taking that pic really shows how messy the desk is.. holy buckets!

Today or tomorrow Vikki, and since Clint has been SO naughty you don't have to share even though it's addressed to both of you.

Stopped by a client this morning. They have 5 dogs in their office. A labradoodle, 2 labs, a gorgeous German Shepherd and a little ankle biter. They are so fun, but I now have tons of dog hair all over me! Chey's gonna LOVE that!

Barb, CONGRATS on teh gift card.

Holly, do you have a new coffee maker yet???

Oh I can imagine Chey when you get home!
my moms cat about crawls up my pant leg to sniff every inch of my jeans!
I dress in all black for work so I make sure my jeans and top never touch anything here, or 'd be covered in cat hair. I take them off the hanger, and do not sit anywhere before I leve for work! LOL
Well desk is looking better, i have actually put things away!

4 hours later here's my desk!

I vacuumed in here too!
I have a bagless and it just amazes me how much of my hair fills that thing every time I use it! YUCK, and I should be bald!

I got happy mail too... Thank you so much Laurie!!

The candy things are so cool, Clint thinks so too! Neat idea he says!

The top notes are perfect!

You rock girl friend!!!
The peeler looks so complicated too! LOL
I will try to pick up a squash tomorrow.

I am at the Orlando airport--flight leaves in 1 1/2 hours-then another 1 1/2 hour lay-over in Baltimore-thanks goodness for free internet! I could have gotten on a flight to Atlanta as it gets into Milwaukee an hour earlier, but she said the flight from Atlanta to MKE was pretty full and there would be no guarantee I would be on it and might be stuck in Atlanta. So, I am staying on my original flights and get home a bit after 8--soooooooooo ready!

The weather is still to the west of Madison Barb. Safe travels!

Vikki, I'm glad you liked the box. The peeler is easy to use, but notice that little plastic part over the blades...keep that so you don't injure yourself when you grab it out of the drawer. It's VERY sharp. There are directions in with it...just read them. It's SUPER easy to use.

HI all,

WE have a fine sunny day here today, which is a nice change. Rain again tomorrow until goodness knows when. They are letting water out of al the dams an my home town is on flood alert. Drove home from Mum andDad's yesterday and there was the most amazing amount of water on the road. I was exhausted when I got home. I didn't check the time, but I think it took me about 3 hours to get home rather thean the normal 2.
Bug goes to Canberra today and it has been snowing down that way. Bizarre weather.
I am planning on getting the last of the cards out today and then packaging up the good that I have made. I still want to make some honeycomb to go with them. I did some sugar coated peanuts and some beetroot chutney with Mum over the weekend. The only present that I have left to make is my sisters, and she has the Big Shot and my Scor-pal and I need them.

It's Official.....

Bug is a man.

He is packing to go to his Dad's for Christmas. He can't find any of his clothes - you know, they "I have no socks". Then I asked him to move the stuff in the garage. OK, it was a cryptic question, but there is one car in there, a work bench that is neat and tidy and some rubbish where my car should be. His question - what do I need to move?? The rubbish. What rubbish? I have just been to the chemist to get some strong painkillers. Otherwise there is no way I will last to this afternoon. Just wish I had some valium.......

Oh Kerriann, I am sorry! Maybe you need a dumpster while Bug is gone. Great rubbish removal...

Vikki, really, it is easy! Honest! Tom loves ours, and so do I!

Good Morning girls!

I woke up with a sinus headache.. went in the kitchen to find a jar of salsa smashed on the floor! grrrr
My fault!
It was moldy so I just left it, I was gonna rinse it out today. Darn it anyhow!!
The cats must have been chasing mice.

Louie is a serious P'nut / P'nut Butter feen! I tell ya I am positive he waits for the mice to get caught on the trap then he takes them! LOL He chased me down for my Salted Nut Roll! LOL




All done cleaning my salsa mess looked out the window to see my horse looking in at me! I am so thrilled to be out tramping in the snow (still snowing too) trying to talk a very stubborn Shetland back to his pen! Clint wasn't very happy either, he had to fix it where Carmel broke one of the panels. He pushes against the cattle panel till he bends it, after a while (a month or so) it just breaks... jerk!

So, now I am very awake, without my Mountain Dew yet even! Sinus are cleared now after being outside! YAY! I am abit chilled, feet are wet, oh did I forget to mention I was still in my pj's when my dumb *** went outside! LOL I just grabbed my jacket jumped into my boots and ran out... duh!

I am going to go sit at the table and work on Christmas cards for january's challenge! Hey Rachel, I can chat on Face Book about VSN, my cell is still off till maybe next week

So does anyone know where the Image Swap is??????

Good Morning, Ladies and when I say that is comes from MinneSNOWta that is no lie!

The snow we are having now is like what I remember as a little girl growing up in the 1960's. It is so pretty how can one be a hater! Muahahahahaaaa

So, question... I see many siggies list what I think possibly are the swaps they have participated in? Is that what most do? Or, is that for one to remember what they have done or are presently involved in? Or, is it the one they currently are working on?

Just one day left of work for me today and then I am off and not returning until Tuesday, January 4. So many people think it is funny that I always take the Monday off, too. I think that comes from when my kids were younger and after their winter break they would go back on Monday. That Monday was always MY day... all alone...and quiet... a time to catch up on errands and laundry and whatever else I felt like doing.

This morning while driving to work traffic was moving soooooo slow here in Minneapolis I think I could have fallen asleep. ZZZzzzZZZzzzzzzz

Take care... safe travels...
Let it Snow!

Good Afternoon--first chance to write in the threads.......................................

I got home OK last night--there was snow, but not enough to delay things--my friend Deb was not so lucky as she left earlier than me and her flight to MN got canceled, she had to go through Detroit and finally got to Wausau 4 hours late.

When I got home, my roomie had a surprise for me and a partial Christmas present--a flat screen TV for the basement. We had been talking for awhile, but she kept saying no as the TV's we use are all OK--nothing new and fancy, but they work. We had been talking of painting the family room in the basement as it has been boring white the 9 years we have lived here-so we have been getting paint samples the past few weeks and doing test areas. While I was gone, she painted most of two walls in the corner where the new TV is--a burgundy on one wall and dark tan on the other. She also picked up the TV, had a friend help her mount it on the wall and when her nephew and his family were here over the weekend, they took home the very heavy TV that was there. So, a few things were planned while I was gone....................... She also got a new blu-ray player and receiver, so we are moving components to the TV area in the living room upstairs. I tried to hook things up today upstairs and they do not work. So, I called a neighbor who said her son-in-law is kind of techy, so he will come out to look at it. I do not understand why there are so many plugs and cords and cables and speaker wire. I hope when we get ready to hook up the new pieces in the basement, it will be much easier. The plan right now is for us to do the rest of the painting ourselves, and I might even do some myself tomorrow, by today is all about catching up—like 4th load of wash is in dryer and one more to go, all Christmas cards received are hung on the railing, a couple of thank you notes to be written, the walk was shoveled this morning, etc. Just a couple of things to do.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday!

merry christmas!
well, i've been busy in my own little drama. my son zak was in afghanistan on deployment. his new baby is sick and needing all kinds of tests and surgery. (looks like she'll be ok)
but anyway, b/c of that, the air force let him come home early, although another airman, who was scheduled to go home, volunteered to take my son's place...
but ANYWAY, all zak's son, jackson, wants for christmas is for his daddy to come home...which he has but they didn't tell him....instead, they surprised him at the mall's santa claus. local station picked it up...you can watch it live at 6:00 here:WVLT Home | Knoxville, Tennessee - Breaking News, Weather and Sports click on "live now" at 6pm. you MIGHT want to have a tissue handy...

Default save those wrapping paper tubes!

here are the napkin rings i made using the empty wrapping paper tubes, ribbon, poinsetta brads and candycanes!!

i cut the tube down the length, then cut it the width of the ribbon(wide stuff from dollar tree) glued the ribbon on, added the brad on front and then used glue dots to adhere the candycane on the back.

YUMM-O!!

Oh you girls will be so proud of me! The Hubs won't be home until tomorrow, late, and I have a stamping friend coming over for a play date tomorrow after work! Well, it snowed to beat the band last night and all day today, so there was about 5-6 inches in my driveway. I decided to "Man Up" and went and fired up the snowblower for the first time in my life!!! I even still have all my digits intact!! LOL

I called the hubs and told him, the next time we have a big snow we may have a fight on our hands! Fighting over who gets to do the drivway!

YEA Holly has a coffee pot!

Annie, now that i am in tears! Uff da!!

Barb...wishing you were still in Orlando?

Laurie Thanks for the gallery love! Oh and I mailed those images to you to cut for me. I so think i need that one.

Well Clint had his monthly appointment, he has a thyroid out of control and she called a RX change into the pharmacy.. 30 minutes alter we went to pick ip up
they said "Oh it will be about half hour"
okay so we walked around ran into some ppl we know, visited, went back up and she says "they are counting it right now"
okay so I went over to loiter in the magazines (cool stuff to drool over)
ran into his ex and their son, visited some (about 15 min or so) went back over to Pharmacy new girl at he counter, she goes to check computer and says "it's pending, I'll go see why"
she comes back "we are all out of that medication, it will be here tomorrow"
OMG Are you kidding me?!!?
I blew up! I want an explanation to why I was told it was being counted!!!!

I am steamed, with all the excuses.. then the first lady comes back and says, "it's just going to be a few more minutes"
I really blew now!
Then I get told it will be an hour, how the hell is it possible to go from None Here to wait another hour???

I asked what the change was.. which was like pulling teeth to get this info, I explained, we have enough at home right now, to just double up until Friday.. Oh no don't do that! Why hte hell not? It's the same pill same 20MG he takes 40mg now (2 pills) now she wants him to take 50mg, well gee dumb *** that means he now needs to take 3 pills!

Oh, he should wait for this RX.

OMG I am so steamed with these ppl

Then coming home they have not plowed yet out here and missed the driveway by about 1 foot... stuck! GREAT!!!

Okay now that I have vented!

How's everyone else doing today?

Rachel, I am super proud of you! You go girl! WHOO HOO!!!

Vikki...BREATHE! I hate the pharmacy (especially Walmart), and well, I like my mail order stuff.

Holly, glad to see you have a new pot! Dinner sounds delish. We are debating what to have.

No need to apologize... I want to know....
When we send stuff like that does Customs open it?
Do you have to pay a fee to receive it?

Do you remember the reveal DSS package, for me to send it through my work it was like $75 at the post office it was only $15

When customers want to send to Australia, I have to go through customs questions, 1 thing I remember for sure is we can not ship hair care products! LOL
But I always wonder about the 'card making stuff'
