It is 5am on Saturday morning.

And I cant sleep. What am I doing you ask? I am playing with beads. I am working on some lanyards for my sister-in-laws site I am hoping she likes them. Maybe she won't cause they were made at 4 effing o'clock in the morning. I wouldn't blame her. Who crafts at this time of the day? Oh yeah....ME! I am not totally sure why I cant sleep. I have taken my meds. I should be tired but my mind is racing. I think it is time I put my project away, give my poor granny hip a rest for the night and go to sleep. Good lord. Lets go watch a movie or something. *sigh* Honest opinion though people...if this were longer could it be a nice looking lanyard or does it need something? More something, less something? Is it just plain ugly? I can take it. I need to hear it...this is going out to the public for sale.

Thanks for your is really appreciated. REAL honesty is appreciated. :-)

Another cutie to add to my list

This is our new friend Matt's son Nick. I just thought it was a funny, cute, silly picture. I love pictures of kids. They are so innocent and funny. Thanks for letting me show off your cute son Matt. He is a doll! By the way....what do you think he is thinking with that look on his face?

Do you do lent?

I know I am not the most religious person you know, but I like to participate in lent. Every year I try to figure out what it is I most enjoy and embark on giving it up for 40 days and 40 nights. This year it is my beloved white cholcolate that I just discovered this past christmas. In one week, I consumed 6 Lindor White Cholcolate bars in one week. This is how hooked I am. So goodbye white chocolate and along with you goes soda....again. Which I have been giving up off and on for a while now. Here's to day one.

Through the holes in the laundry basket......

My cat likes to sit in the laundry basket and so I took this random photo with my phone. When it is bigger you can see his blue eyes. Maybe I will get one of my photoshoppy friends to make his eyes bluer. :-) Anyway....odd photo of my cat Bill for the day.

Its D-E-D...dead.

The G1 is officially dead. We let it sit in warm places, all taken apart and even in a bag of rice hoping to soak up all that drippy wetness it was in. No dice my friends. It was sitting in that water for way too long. Chris was nice enough to call Saturday afternoon to see if we had to pay that $130...again. Unfortunately we do. They told us that the G1s wer out of stock and didn't know when they would be in. I would be officially phoneless. Man, the way I put that it sounds worse than homeless. Hubby being the super, awesome, studly hubby he is, got my phone from another carrier unlocked and working with our current carrier! Hurray. I have a phone. Not to mention the insurance people called and let us know on Sunday and said they had a phone for me....and...and...AND its bronze!!!! I guess I came out ok on this deal after all. Now we just wait for the new G1 to arrive.

Ca Ca Ca Ca....Poo Poo Poo Poo

I dont normally beleive in Friday the 13th and the hokey stuff that goes along with it, but today might be the exception. As you can see, by my last post it started out from the hubby always AWESOME! Then it just went down hill. At work we have to track every time we have a gap of 15 mins. What? 15 mins? Maybe I was pooping, or talking to a co-worker about a claim, or just talking to a co-worker. If I get my stuff done, why am I being babysat? Ok, fine. I will work on a way to get it fixed. I will get my hard working co-workers together and we will figure out a way to be trusted again!
Moving on. After work, I got tickets for Marcus for Sunday. That is the one thing we are leaving the house for this weekend. Got chinese food from the Smith's and went to get Chris from work. Smelled it all the way home. We got almost home and I noticed the flowers had tipped over and I asked hubby if there was water coming out of them. He said yes and proceeded to pick up my soaking wet, waterlogged G1. It was dripping. For some reason, my new car didn't matter at this point...just my stupid cell phone I have gotten annoyingly attached to. We get home and clean up the water and I take the chinese food out of the backseat and on the seat is BBQ sauce from the pork. Now I seem to care about the new car. I get the spot remover from upstairs and we clean it up best we can and finally make it in the house to dismantle the phone. Chris takes it apart. You know those dots that show when you have dropped it in water? Mine showed I dropped it in water. Immediately, I think of Mickel. He works at a major cell phone company and can tell me what to do. Chris also reminds me we have insured the phones. In talking to Mickel, he tells me usually there is a deductible involved when replacing a phone. Exsqueeze me? Baking powder? Deductible? What is the insurance for? I look it up and my deductible is just as much as I paid for my phone! $130! I let Chris know and right now we are just waiting until tomorrow to figure it all out.

I think my lesson for today is to find the beauty and pride in non-material things and to quit getting attached to them so danged easily. *sigh* But now that it is ok to have them it is so fun. Maybe I need to go spend some time in the jungle with Ben and Rach and learn my lesson about all this.

What? Again????

What the heck did I do to deserve this??? 2 weeks in a row??? Wow!

Right now I am feeling pretty special. They came in a UPS box and I opened it in front of all who wanted to see! I dont know what it is about getting flowers, in the office, in front of the ladies. It just makes you feel good about your hubby and how sweet he truly is...even though you know he is already. So, I know my hubby is sweet when he remembers my favorite flower is tulips....but then there is this note attatched to the flowers.....

And lemme 'splain the note by posting this video from The Mighty Boosh. His name is Old Gregg and he wants to play love games with you. Just search if you are curious for more of Old Gregg and his creepiness.

7 years....REALLY????

Well, me and hubby have been married 7 years as of today. Wow. I don't think I can even believe it. When he got out of the car today, he looked at his lunch box and pulled off the binder clip and gave it to me...I was a dork and put it on my shirt. Of course it is still there. :-) But then I was surprised with this....

What??? Shut up and get right out of town! Isn't that cute of him? It even has a 7 in it! On top of that, on the card, it had lyrics from our song. No, I am not telling you what that is. What a cute hubby.....Love you, butt!
