How True It Is !

I got these from a friend on facebook.Some of them are,well most of them,if not all are so true and kinda funny.

1. I think part of a best friend's job would be to immediately clear your computer history when you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?1.

6. Was a learning curve really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

21. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

22. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

24. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

25. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

29. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

30. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

31. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

33.Even when opportunity knocks, you still have to get off your ass and open the door.

Some Scrappy Goodness

Just wanted to share a couple recent layouts that I've done. I had the photo for the first one for eons.I scrapped it once,but didn't really feel that I did the photo justice,so I waited until I got some new scrap supplies and was inspired by them.The photo is of three of my on-line scrappy friends.I just wanted to showcase them in a pretty feminine way,and journal about how I've never met them in real life,but still they are very special people in my life! I got a sheet of burlap and it kinda scares me,but I decided that it looked great on this layout.Primas.........oh my,what I weakness I have for them.I love every color,shape and design!

The next layout is of my youngest Evan,actually working at school.The photo was taken by his teacher,it was hat day,so they could wear them in class.

I hope to be back with some more layouts shortly.Right now we are renovating our kitchen and most of my cupboard contents are right where I scrap! will be worth it in the end though.

Check It Out!!!!!!!!

I was fortunate enough to be able to submit a layout for Creative Scrappers Birthday Bash! I got to work with an awesome sketch by Zarah Peterson.Everyone did a wonderful job,and much to my surprise this morning,my friend Vanessa was playing along with the same sketch and I had no idea........LOL.Great job ladies! If you decide to do this layout,leave a comment and let me know.I'd love to see it.Thanks Kristine for the opportunity.

Here is my layout.I used a photo of my daughter,taken last year by her school teacher on a class trip.I think she's quite pretty,and photogenic,but I might be biased.

Stay tuned for some more scrappy goodness coming up soon:)

Something Near And Dear To My Heart

Quite some time ago I heard that there was going to be the very first Relay For Life, right here on my island.I was so excited,and wanted to find out all I could about it.I knew I had to be a part of it one way or another.I started asking some of my friends if they'd be interested in being on a team with me and everyone jumped at the chance.It wasn't long before I had a team and many others waiting to see if they could join my team.

Cancer was something that other people dealt with in their families,not me.Well in the fall of 2003 my dad started having some back problems which wasn't something new to him.He came in from fishing and decided he'd rest and maybe call a chiropractor later on.Not many days after,he couldn't walk.He was flown out to a larger hospital where we found out that he had a malignant tumor on his spine,which had originated in his kidney.My dad was given 18 mths roughly to live.He made it 15,but he never walked again.The Cancer Society was so good to my family during dad's illness.They were quick to set up an account for help with travel and medications that weren't covered by his insurance.I knew right then if I could help in any way to assist another family dealing with cancer, I would.

Now I am proud to be the captain of the White Head Walking Hotties...........I did not pick the name however......LOL.

We have already raised well over $2000 in on-line pledges alone.I am truly overwhelmed by the response.I could scarcely believe my eyes when the pledges kept pouring in.I have great family and friends.

If you would like to donate towards our team and such an awesome cause,please feel free to click on the link,that I will give at the bottom.You can also check and see if there may be a relay going on in your area to participate in.It will be great fun and for a worthy cause.

I'd like to wish all my blogging friends near and far a very Happy and Blessed Easter.I don't think that we celebrate Easter like we should.I am sad to say that I am so busy making sure the kids have enough candy and hiding they don't get enough treats on a normal day eh? I worry about getting a ham and who is going to be here to eat it,and about how much rushing around I'll be doing getting the kids ready for a Sunday Easter service and fighting with them to wear something special,that I totally think I forget what the real meaning of Easter is and why we celebrate it.I must try harder.

I managed to get the last Mission Create challenge completed using all 5 elements before the cut off time.Tomorrow is a new one..........make sure to check it out!

Here it is...........I decided to do a photo of Evan sleeping.Man, he's so innocent and precious when he's asleep.Some mornings he wakes up the same way,but others he's full of it! I will never wake him unless I have
