I just had to...

I really don't like forwarding things... unless I totally love what it says or I know the person who I'm forwarding it to will totally love what it says... that said, I got something from my sister and I wanted to share it with someone... so I thought of you all and said... ah ha! I don't have to forward it... I just have to post it! So here goes....



1. You accidentally enter your PIN on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't even have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.

Go on, forward this to your friends. You know you want to!

Pinata Time

LinkWell, I have been away from giving lately and thought I'd make up for it... sooooo, this is kinda like a pinata bursting open with goodies... somethings were in my harddrive and just needed a little tweaking, like that Christmas alpha I promised sometime back... sorry. What started me off though was the idea for the thermometer. Once I did that, I thought I'd just dust off a few more things and throw them out to you all and see how you like them. I made one with and one without the words since I thought you might want to put something else there. My thought is that you could have arrows pointing to the temperature markers (left off the numbers too for you Celcius people wink, wink) and instead of numbers, you could put fun things like "too warm but no sun" or "Frosty is melting" ... well, I'm sure some of you can come up with some better stuff than that, lol. So, here they are in no particular order. Just click on the image to go to the download. And please, leave me some loving not only because its the right thing to do but because it makes me feel good too! :D

PS The blue background on the snowman and the drop shadow / blue background on the thermometer is there only for viewing purposes. . :D

Well, I am terrible... I haven't gotten back to this sad, sad, saaaaad blog in quite some time. I appreciate all the wonderful emails and comments from all of you, my friends. There was a very dear person who wrote an email to me and I honestly "lost" it... I am soooo, soooo sorry! If you read this, please email me again. You were so sweet and understanding and wrote such a lovely long letter telling me to keep my chin up and giving me a wonderful (and much needed) pat on the back. I don't know what I did to lose it. I am a bit of a scatter brain most of the time and I must have opened another window then got distracted, then distracted again and so on and so forth... which isn't as hard to do as you think when you know that I have a two year old that's quite rambunctious. But, I ramble... I just wanted to tell whoever that was that I really meant to reply and thank you in depth but I can't seem to figure out where that email went to! Ughhhhh.

Now, to update those of you who wonder what is going on in my life. Well, hopefully something good! I haven't even told my family this or any of our friends, although my DH has told his (which I guess are mine too) friends but until it comes from my lips, I've not told anyone this yet! (Hmmm, technically then this is coming from my fingers not my lips so am I telling you?!?!? Lol.) OK, really this rambling is getting out of hand! Now onto my dish....

We might be moving! YEAH!!!! I have some mixed emotions about this but for the most part I am thrilled! I am trying to not get too excited because this is going to be very hard for my DH to do and he may back out at the last minute but given the circumstances, this would be the absolute best thing we could do. If anyone reading this is from Long Island, you will think yeah, so what but for the majority of the rest of the country, this will be shocking. Housing on Long Island is nuts... I mean really, really nuts! We have been thinking of downsizing our house and our lifestyle but when a normal little house on less than an eighth of an acre of land goes for half a million dollars (yup, $500,000) and up, what downsize are we talking about?!??! Seriously, we looked at a run down house on a postage stamped size of property in a nice neighborhood (the only reason we looked) and it was $469,000! The taxes were a little over nine thousand a year! Now our house is nice and it has appreciated some in the three years we've lived here but not enough to afford a house half the size on one eighth the property!

Soooo, moving would be swell! Awesome in fact! Where would we move to? North Carolina is where our mental compass is pointed and it seems to be the destination of most leaving Long Island. Keep us in your prayers that this is the move we need to make and that all goes smoothly.

Peace, Love and Hugs my friends!
