Bad Blogger! Bad, Bad Blogger!

I've been a very bad blogger! Life had been busy and exciting, I just haven't taken the time to blog about it! I'm going to try to creep back into it. I've sat down several times to compose an update. Even started one and saved in progress a few times. But ultimately here I sit, dusting the debris off of my blogger dashboard, eight weeks out, wondering what to write.

I realize that since I have posted, I have TEN new Project 365 layouts completed. That is 70 days of mundane and not-so mundane details of my life. Here are some:

There. Do you feel all caught up on me and mine?

No. Of course you don't!

So, here are some more!

Okay, so it really doesn't help you get much of a feel for what has been going on in my life. But it's the best I've got. I'm not really going to give you a play-by-play of the last two months. It would be quite boring for both you and me. At best this serves as proof that I've been alive and happy and just too darned distracted to meander on over here to my blog! It is my goal to not neglect ye olde bloggie anymore. I miss it when I do :)

So, enough about me. What's new with you?

The One With Karma

Do you believe in karma?

One of my favorite sayings is that you don't have to believe in karma for it to happen to you.

Last night, I James and I met at a halfway point between the college he teaches at on Tuesday afternoons and where I live. The town doesn't have a lot there but we enjoyed Cracker Barrel and afterward were sitting in his car for a few minutes chatting, about to part ways. When I saw this strange man hovering near my car.

I then watched him checking handles at various cars across the way from us. James and I sat there, stunned. Then he managed to get into a car and was rifling around. That's when we went back into the Cracker Barrel and got the manager. They called the police but they were unsuccessful in apprehending him. At least they were able to scare him off though.

I feel bad that they didn't catch him but I'm glad he at least was stopped for the time being. I really think that if it were my car he had been rifling through, and someone else was witnessing it, that they would have done the same thing as me. I hope so, at least. Maybe I stopped someone's things from getting stolen last night, and that's a good feeling--doing a good thing and hoping that karma noticed ;)

And...onwards and upwards...the winner of my random drawing yesterday...
So, SidebySide, you'll receive a $5 Gift Card to Shawna Clingerman's shoppe...congrats! (and congrats on all those photos too!)

I have my 5 week post op appointment this morning so I'm outta here...will chat you bloggers up tomorrow! :)

The One With 200 Posts!

So this is my 200th post, bloggers! I can't believe it has been a year! This blog has seen me through a lot of things. Here's my first post. It really wasn't all that interesting. This was was interesting though! Man, I was mad! Oh and then there was this one time that my blog was linked to this blog, which was funny and interesting. Do you remember that post? Ahhh, the fun.

I've also learned so much about myself through the old Sweet Shoppe FOBTY quizzes and other random stuff. The recap is:

* I am hip-hop music. (w.... t.....h.)
* My spelling is excellent
* I have a Midland American accent
* I could be a vampire if I had to
* I am 80% real (i beg to differ)
* I type 84 wpm
* I am terrible at naming crayola crayon colors

Now if that random mashup of crap isn't reason enough to blog daily, I don't know what is!

What is fun about blogging IS the longevity of it, the day after day stuff. It is a feeling of accomplishment knowing that I've stuck with it!

I'd like you to tell me about something you've accomplished, or stuck with for a while. Tomorrow, one lucky winner from my comments section will win a $5 gift card to
Shawna Clingerman's shoppe at Sweet Shoppe Designs!

So tell me about it and give yourself a pat on the back while you're at it! I'll be back tomorrow with our winner!

The One With The Big Question

tomorrow will be my 200th blog post, friends! What should I do? I was thinking maybe I could snag a gift card from Bella Gypsy's store...maybe even snag one from a friend, to give away here tomorrow? 200 posts seems like a lot of verbal runoff to not celebrate in some way, shape, or form.

While you're thinking, let me get caught up on my Project 365 photos! I was so busy from Wednesday on last week I didn't have time!


27/365. Dry bed. In the great indoor precipitation disaster, 50 sq. feet of carpet and 1/2 of my king-sized bed were soaked...during my nightly call from James, I explained the aquatic catastrophe. He offered refuge and a dry bed...which honestly could have been found a little closer than a 1-hour drive, but I couldn't pass up the chance for a little spontaneity and a late-night impromptu trip to the 1222 for a mid-week sleepover.


28/365. Pancakes. A not-ordinary Thursday, thanks to the midweek sleepover...was nice to start the day with my sweetie at IHOP.


29/365. Papa's House. Took the kids to David's for the weekend. Naomi was pretty excited and talked about it all morning!


30/365. No Tiramisu for you!We went for Tiramisu cupcakes yesterday but they had run out. We got a different kind and saved them to eat today. They were yummy but I still want the tiramisu kind!


31/365. Written in the snow. James & I went out to play in the snow...we played with nerf swords for an hour on the tennis court, and I left a little note before we went in for the day!


....and I got my week four layout done! :)

That's really all...but that's a LOT so I suppose I'll get to work...and I'll see you back here tomorrow with my 200th post! :)
