Surprise! I'm back - Added Bonus, a little BMW @ the bottom of the post!

Hi! I have finally gotten back to my computer for a bit. Whewwww. Things have been crazy! Work has been more hectic than ever, I've been working thru every lunch the past week and my boss's boss had been in for a trip too. It was nice. I have a friend back in the hospital, and that's so sad, but she's doing better.
Miss T has been on this "I'm so needy I can't function without you holding me no matter what, even if you have to pee I need to sit on your lap then too" phase, so by the time she's in bed I AM BEAT!. I was in bed by 8:30 the past two nights.
It's such a shame, my poor sewing room has taken such a hit. I've not gotten t anything, even my beautiful birds I got from my swap!! Tomorrow is going to be cold and nasty so daddy's making pasta and I am sewing and catching up on my stuff. Listing a few last stamps on the bay and figuring out the last of the things that I want to get rid of from my craft stuff.
I am going to try out #2 of the cupcake testers tomorrow. The neighbors are all out of town so I only got one box to test and I have no idea where they are going after I make them.
I've been working on Miss T's birthday party too. We are down to under a month before she is ONE!!! Can you believe it?? I can't that's for sure. I want this to be a good, memorable party FOR ME. She's not going to remember it, I am. I want to invite some friends, family and have a good time... More to come on that another time.

Ok Time for the BMW's again (Bitch, Moan, Whine!)
1. People that work in an office... Afternoon poop is made for single stall bathrooms, no one else needs that before they leave or after lunch. Please, take the time to go to the single bathroom downstairs!
2. We have a quiet room at work, and I am sure I've complained about it before, yes I know I have but there is a person that I know that is having an affair and if they use that room and phone again for their personal nasty calls I am going to holler from the rooftops.. PEOPLE USE THAT ROOM - Get the HELL OUT!!!
3. Ok, I can't think of anything else that can be in this post, the rest has to be in their own posts.. :)
have a great weekend!

Working to be a better human

There are so many little things that we can do to help in the world. The whole Handmade scare really has me thinking of where I want to go with my projects, work and things I learn to do. I am learning to Knit and can make a 4X4 square (ok close to Square) so I am going to help with this blanket to help employees in any and every country get a fair shake.

The I's have it....

She got a pair of monkey socks and a starbucks gift card... she loves those foofy drinks. Her sister also surprised her with a birthday party, that Miss T and I went to. Miss T was present enough.. and of couse we are going to lunch someday soon.

My BD on the other hand has been less than eventful.. one more day in the weekend.. lets see what happens next.

So, I am testing out some of those really cool rainbow cakes, you see them everywhere..
a few things.
they say to use gel food coloring.. do that, this stuff didn't work as well.. look at my poor purple.. it just looks like a gloomy day.

they were still good!!

new favorite thing in the tub.. ya, foam letter... gets her to stop standing up.. for a little bit.

So, a president, an actress, and I walk into a bar...

So, we didn't walk into a bar, but if we did we would all celebrate our birthdays this weekend...

Yeah, George, he and I have so much in common... I am lying.. we have 1 thing in common.

Drew on the other hand, has a lot in common with me. She's had her ups and downs and figured her life out in her youth. I have not had multple marriages, drug addictions, movies, tons of money, but I still feel that connection with her.

Better than either of these two I share a birthday with with a very dear friend, Melissa. Melissa had a rough year last year, rougher than anyone I know. I know some of you are shaking your heads saying 2008 was bad but did you go blind? No, well she did...
So, I need to find a great present for her this year... We are typically used to being super broke but had a deal when we were young to buy eachother a box of cereal and this tradition has gone on for YEARS.. I am not sure what to get her this year to go with her box of cereal.
any ideas?

It's over....

The E-bay weekend is over, the packages are ready and about to ship. I was off today, T went to the sitter, not sure what Bob did but it's ok becuase he helped me get everything packed up to ship off.
19 sets of stamps went for about $150. That is not bad at all! I threw in a few bonus stamps here and there, because it's always nice to get a little something extra.

I took my "Arm" in to get looked at over @ Jackman's and thank GOD for all he's done for me in my life and still continues to do more everyday, it was FIFTEEN Dollars to fix! I broke the plastic outside the arm and it should be fixed and back to me soon.. not soon enough but soon.

Miss T is officially singing her first song that I can recognize, it's "Row Row Row your boat" this makes my birthday decision a bit easier by making the party Backyardigans because they sing Row Row on their DVD too.

I have to take a friend to work tomorrow, it's going to suck, I have to backtrack a half hour to pick him up. I am a nice person.

I am going to bed, I just spent too much on ebay but am planning to replace my rubbermaid with tupperware and I have to get good deals. :)

What's your Damage Heather?

Yes, famous line.. worse, I have damage.. I am SO F-ING PISSED OFF!!! AT myself of course, I dropped my embroidery tray. Yup the Whole F-ing thing.. You guessed it. I dropped the bomb, Big Fat F bomb, over and over. Snaped a piece of plastic right off it and RIGHT when I was about to start using it again.. Oh, I am not dealing with this well.
Oh man oh man. My e-bay ends today, Sigh. I was going to start saving up for a WII for myself. I don't buy me big ticket items often but I did get myself a cricut with my sock sale money and now I was going to save up for a WII for myself but that's now on hold. Please Pray for my machine, poor baby(lock) thankfully they are fixed here and I am going to call the "dealership" tomorrow and I am hoping they can fix this and there is no real damage.
I didn't really drop the big bomb.. I said it very quietly after I did it. Miss T was sleeping and the MIL just got here..
oh sigh... **tear**

So I had this dream... It was Crazy!

Have you ever had one of those dreams that stick with you all day until you figure out something about it or forget it?
I had that this morning, not last night. Miss T woke up at 5 hungry, restless, and I got up with her and put her in bed with me and we both fell back asleep and that's when it happened.
So, here starts my dream, I am in a room that I do not recognize (normally my dreams happen where I have been, something about comfort for me I am sure) but the room was dark, with dark wallpaper, standing from the doorway the bed is to the right and windows straight ahead, there is a canopy over the bed with dark bedding and dark carpeting, that's almost red. There is a photo on the wall to the left but I cannot see the wall I am standing against but there is furniture on this wall, I can tell by my dream later.
The bed, inside the canopy starts Raining.. Pouring, and I jump out of bed and am looking at it, the bed is soaked with water. I don't know what to do but this Butler (kind of person?) comes in and takes the bed and brings me a new one after the rain ends. He seems shocked, but he and another fellow take the bed and leave, so I follow (this is a dream, if it were a movie the man with the axe would come soon) and take the bed outside. I follow, wondering what is going on, they set the mattress down and walk around it (like men do with cars) and so I ask, what happened? They both agree and the one man speaks and says "I'm surprised, these are normally blood but this one is water, we are going to get rid of it regardless". They pick the mattress back up and head into the woods, there are papers hanging from the trees and white paint (?) on the ground. I follow, watching them dump the mattress into the woods and turn and nail a sign into the tree with a date on it that I cannot read. (or don't' remember) The men turn and the one runs off, I am assuming to get another bed? The other walks with me, stops, scrapes the ground with his foot and it somehow turns white and he says a little prayer that I cannot hear.
Then Bob gets out of the shower and turns the hall light on and I wake up....

CRAZYY!! What does that mean???

I am NEVER ALLOWED TO E-BAY SELL AGAIN!!! I am a total OSD Freak! I can't handle it, I must be some crazy people pleaser, ADD, Need it now, Wanna know what's gonna happen, Ask people the end of the movie/book, insane, 2 piece of cake eating, CRAZY PERSON!!!
(Ask Z's mom!)
So, I got a bid, and a request for a buy it now.. OMG! That's insane!!! I am so happy!!!

So, the girls were making fun of me because I was reading all of these crazy e-bayers (no offense) but people write things that are just nutzo. so I thought, what the hell, lets go with the flow!! So I put on mine "Cut by a professional Stampin Up Representative" and cracked myself (and others) up. But now these people are like OH YA BABY! That's awesome!! Who's your stamper, Who's your stamper..

Dang it Karla! No more Cake for me!

Ok, back to my insane cleaning of ribbon, I swear my kid's gonna beat up boy scouts and tie them to trees. this kids amazing!! Oh Sigh... Look at this!!! It was a tornado! She had a great time, I just wish my camera had a charge then!
My addiction because who can pass this up!! The ten cents, YES for the WHOLE THING!
Oh ya! One Ninety for TEN Yards of grosgrain! Whoo hoo, ok but the bad news is, there is no more Walmart Fabric Department where I got this.
My fabu invention, it's a ribbon holder/ hider... This is 10 yards of each, in a toilet paper roll, with paint tape (because it won't hurt the ribbon) (Fine, yes and because it was there and I couldn't find anything else! Ok Smarty pants)
The unopened ribbon, sighing that it was saved.
The poor pittiful comforting because she was torn away from her master knot tying. Her pirate practice... her unbelievable way of making me laugh by cracking herself up during a conversation with Ribbon, It's the Italian in her, I swore I heard "Now, look here See... Your gonna listen to what I say, See.. I'm gonna need a sippy cup and a big wheel and a driver.. somone with long legs See..."

I think I may have ADD.. Can someone lend me the H so I have energy too?

Ok, so I am finally getting the nerve to put my things on e-bay... Why does this scare me?? I am afraid of mail. I know, some people are afraid of clowns, snakes whatever.. I am horrible at mailing things.. Jump in with both feet, right?

We are trying to catch up on laundry today - and sewing fleece.. because it's 65 out right now...

I'm going to the grocery store to get some brownschweiger... I've never figured out how to spell it, and think I may spell it different each time I try.

back with more once I catch my thoughts..

I got my sure cuts a lot.. I am so excited.. I can't wait to play with it!!!!!
