Oh no! I am so sorry you are going through this. Sure hope you get the work done quickly and correctly so you can get those appliances back where they belong! Good luck!

Interesting night at the hospital! After getting 'wired up' with about 28 different electrodes, 2 belts, a finger oxygen meter and nasal meters, I looked like I belonged in horror movie - all the wired, hair sticking up, etc! I thought (all things considered) I slept pretty well. The tech said otherwise and said I think you will be back for another night of testing. GRRRR! He said that although I was asleep, I didn't get 'good' sleep until 4AM and it didn't last long enough (apparently you *should* get to the good sleep stage after 90-120 minutes) and I moved around a lot. Isn't life fun??? I was released at 5:30 (he woke me just after 5) and came home to sleep in my own bed without wires!

Default Sounds like some people are having a rough time?

Paula, how sad and upsetting. We talk about folks being out of work and looking for work and you get this kind of crap? So not right! What is going on with our workers in this country?
Jeaneen, sounds horrible. I just don't think I could stand it. I bet when you got home, you just wanted to sleep. Rough night.
Cindy, my prayers and thoughts are with you and your mom and grandmom and I hope it all works out.
Tough vote, when must we vote by??? I think I am with Cindy....put the names in a hat!

Paula, sorry to hear about the Kitchen nightmares!

Jeaneene, sounds like Mike's sleep study. He had it re-done at a private institution and still failed. He now wears a CPAP at night. (he looks so funny but don't tell him I said so) and wakes up with his face all mushed -- he would probally scare the neighborhood kids!

But CPAP therapy is a God send. I actually sleep, it isn't very loud and he doesn't snore,,,,,, ahhh rest!

Hugs to all!

HI Gang, quick post before getting back to my chores.

I just updated my blog with a couple of Christmas/winter cards if you're interested in taking a look!

Good Morning Everyone, unfortunately I have some sad news to share. It seems like that's all I've been doing lately. We lost our Yellow Lab Sadie last night, as most of you know she has not been doing well since we lost Rusty almost a month ago. She has not been eating well and the appetite stimulant they gave her really didn't do much and they couldn't give her anything stronger. She has been progressively getting weaker and by yesterday things took a turn for the worse. Her breathing became much more labored and she was losing her bodily functions. We took her in to the vet for a consultation and he said she was in a lot of distress and suffering greatly. He recommended that we let her go and we agreed. She passed away peacefully. My son Rob is taking it pretty hard, she was really his dog, he got her when she was a puppy. But she's now back with her buddy Rusty and I know they are happy to be together again. It's just hard to believe that exactly 4 weeks to the day that we've lost another beloved pet.

I truly hope this is the last unhappy news that I have to share with you for a long, long time.

Congratulations to Paula! Great fun.
Kathi, I am so sorry. I am glad to hear how you phrased it, about Rusty and Sadie being together. Very nice way to picture it in my mind. Let's hope it's smoother sailing for everyone for awhile!

Kathi:

I am so sorry for your loss. It is hard enough to loose an animal but to go through it twice in such a short period has to be heart wrenching. I'm sending you big puppy hugs. I am sure that Dusty is keeping you company now and that Sadie and Rusty are looking down on you all together.

Kathi - more tears as I type but you are right, they are together and that is important. I know Dusty will bring you much relief.

Paula! - congratulations! Loved your card.

Well I did it.....I finally broke down and ordered a watermark. Found some really cute ones @ http://kgiron.blogspot.com/2009/04/s...atermarks.html only $2 that's not bad.

Wanna know why I broke down? I was looking around on Ebay and found a lady selling handstamped cards some of the cards are going for $25 + so I started looking at her estore and what do you know I came accross one of my cards/my photo! I contacted her and ebay she deleted the listing but said that it wasn't my photo....Really it was my mess in the background! At least steal a good photo of a good card. Not my crap! LOL

I guess this is a big problem because after doing a search here on SCS I found several threads about this very problem who knew. At least CASE the card and take your own photo. So do they buy all the same supplies or what? Very weird.

Anyhooo wanted to share the link....I see Kathi already found them. I love the one Kathi has but ordered a different one. Didn't want to cramp Kathi's style.

Wow Amanda. I guess if she doesn't already have the supplies, if she has someone paying $25 for a card she could go out and buy what is needed. I have had a watermark for quite a while and before that I used a little piece of paper with my info on it in the scan of the card to show that it was mine. That was how we did things back then. In fact, I just looked at an old tutorial here a while back and that is how most people marked their cards. Seems silly now.

Good afternoon!

What a morning, first I over slept a bit, went to Bible study and ran out to Ft. Meade.

I had forgotten that part of post is "detour" city. I dropped my computer off for Amanda's hubby to (hopefully) fix and got to see the beautiful SBS cards. Beautiful work ladies!

I also got to see Stacy and pick up my scency order. Thank you! You look awesome by the way!

The co-missary wasn't bad. Today was little old person day. You know when the ladies can't even see over the top of the buggy any more. Any whoo, I'm glad to have it done with!

Now I just need to get some stuff vacuumed so I don't have guilt over stamp time later today.

Please pray for me, I'm startting to struggle with depression due mostly to the weather.

Kathi; I am so sorry to hear about Saddie. You will be in my prayers as will your family.

Amanda; Oh wow, the watermark thing I'll look into. I bought one a while back but haven't figured out how to get it to attach to the photo. Sounds like Ebay is on top of it though.

Congrats Paula! I really liked your card! Just beautiful.
Mary; sucks to have the computer get screwed up!

I'll catch up with you guys soon, back to work for me!

Wanna know why I broke down? I was looking around on Ebay and found a lady selling handstamped cards some of the cards are going for $25 + so I started looking at her estore and what do you know I came accross one of my cards/my photo! I contacted her and ebay she deleted the listing but said that it wasn't my photo....Really it was my mess in the background! At least steal a good photo of a good card. Not my crap! LOL

I guess this is a big problem because after doing a search here on SCS I found several threads about this very problem who knew. At least CASE the card and take your own photo. So do they buy all the same supplies or what? Very weird.

Anyhooo wanted to share the link....I see Kathi already found them. I love the one Kathi has but ordered a different one. Didn't want to cramp Kathi's style.
I bought one a while ago but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to get it on my card!!

Watermark tutorial...
Open the photo of your picture, do any resizing, cropping, photo editing, etc. you normally do.
Open the file of your watermark
Use your select tool and outline the whole watermark
Then go to "Edit" and select "COPY MERGED". It will copy all layers of your watermark
Click on your photo then "PASTE"
From there use your move tool to move the watermark wherever you would like it in the picture.

Hope that helps.

Thank you Tracy! I got a wonderful prize pack in the mail. Beautifully done. Where did the little felt deers come from?
