Hi Renee!
I did get a few things at Michael's LOL. I really went to just get adhesive and spent $60.00!!!
Which of course means I spent my cigarette money, yikes! Oh well, scrapping is healthier!
I got the adhesive, paper (I have very little paper) some ink and I bought a cuttlebug kids alpha die set for $7.50. It works with my Cuttlebug and it's so cute. The Olivia die set I had bought last summer for the Cuttlebug cost $90.00! I bought that with a 50% off coupon though LOL. Same with the Cuttlebug itself, 50% off coupon.
I used the cuttlekids die set last night. I altered a double sided frame that I had picked up in the Dollar Tree to give to Heather. I took pics of it, but my camera is dying and the photos are off-color and fuzzy. Blech. Time to save up for a new camera. The digi camera I have now is 8 years old and on it's last leg.




Wow Anne you deserve every penny you spent on yourself. I don't have a bug but I did see the die's on sale. And the Cuttlekids were on clearance. Sometimes you just can't pass up a sale.

Any type of challenge sounds cool!
I'm so bored at home with no one take care of, I'm considering getting a second job. Besides needing the extra money, it beats sitting home with nothing to do!

I did make another card for the challenge today. I'm sending this one to my Aunt Jen

Hi all!
I hope everyone had a great weekend

I'm really starting to like making cards a lot! I'm glad I joined the card challenge, seeing everyone's beautiful cards is really inspirational. I made another one. I found a website with instructions for criss-cross cards. I thought it would be hard to make but it wasn't at all and I really like that technique a lot. I have a hard time trying to use patterned paper so this gives me a chance to play with it and learn.

My friend Margie's birthday is at the end of this month so I made a birthday card for her.

Thank you Renee and Margaret for the sweet comments on my cards

Renee I PM'd you the website where I found the instructions for the criss-cross card. It was surprisingly easy to make

I hope everyone had a great weekend and great start to the week. Of course I fell asleep on one of my trolleys on the way to work LOL! Fortunately where I woke up was the end of the line in Center City and was able to get right on the next trolley I needed.

The challenge sounds like fun! Wow one word to describe me? I'll have to think about that one LOL!

Hi Milz! Please don't worry, we understand. It's rough at the end of your pregnancy. I know about the heartburn! I had to sleep sitting up during the end of my pregnancy with my dd. My Gram had told me it was a sign of a baby with lots of hair LOL! But, my dd was born with a full head of hair, go figure!

With my pregnancies I was so tired near the end and then all of sudden a few days before I delivered I got a HUGE burst of energy.

Just make sure you rest and take care of yourself. Soon enough you'll have a sweet little one to take care of!

Gentle Hugs,
Anne

Hi Renee!

Well, until Monday I'm only going to be able to access the Internet through work. I'm having "issues" with Comcast. When don't we have issues with cable companies!
They're overbilling me by $50.00 a month, no idea why and their computers are conveniently not working today. Anyway both the Internet and Cable TV are off because the bill is past due. No kidding, I've been asking for a bill since Feb! I have yet to receive anything, not even a shut off notice. I can only see the current month's bill online, that how I found out about the overcharge. Ugh.
I'm switching back over to RCN on Monday. There is no way on Earth I can pay Comcast $584.00 this week! Heck, that's more than my rent!!
I'll pay Comcast, but over a couple of months and well you know where they can put their cable I signed up for $100.00 a month so how they figure I how $584.00 is beyond me.

Oh Anne that stinks...our phone/internet service is really high too. then out internet is connected to our satalite and it keeps shutting off YUCK. The service is not worth all we pay.

Good luck on that bill dispute -

I just got done on the phone with Comcast. They're overcharging me over $50 a month for the service I signed up for. They're trying to tell me I asked for the whole complete package. Uhhh no and I have the receipt I signed. I just wanted basic digital cable, Internet and basic phone services for roughly $100.00 a month. I really don't watch a lot of TV and have the digital mostly for Anna. She likes the shows they have with On Demand channels. Sesame Street, Dora, etc. I generally just watch a few shows on the SCI-FI channel, sometimes the science of food network. The phone... LOL I hate talking on the phone, basic is all I need.
So I'll be back in business at home next Monday.
I'll pay Comcast what I owe but I'm switching back to RCN. Comcast can shove it.

WOW Anne I hate when stuff like that happens.....I do not blame you I would tell them where to put it to..

I am very lucky,we have bellsouth phone and internet and it is 70.00 a month plus unlimited long distance,but we have no satellite,they want a 200.00 dep and there is no way we can afford that right now. So we have just basic channels which is really boring sometimes but we rent movies....

Milz - No appologies needed!!! Being in the last few weeks of pregnancy is the worst feeling in the world. It's hard to do anything at all because you're so tired and uncomfortable. I hope that you can hold your sweet baby soon!!

Anne - OMG me and you could have sang the same song! But my issues were with a phone company. I switched from one company over to another, but the one that was supposed to be canceled kept on billing me. I called them and they said that they were going to remove the charges and I was told not to pay the balance until they sent me a new bill with the updated charges. I listened (STUPID ME!LOL) and then I get a phone call out of the blue saying that I had to pay 200$ in 7 days or I was getting sent to collections! Never listen to a company when they tell you NOT to pay! Anyway, I hope you get your stuff straightened out and they take a flying leap to "you know where!!"

Hi all!

Ahh I can't wait until Monday! I can live without a phone or TV but it's kind of boring without the Internet!
I don't really watch a lot of TV, but I am going to miss the 2 favorite shows I do like on the Sci-Fi channel. Tonight is Ghost Hunters and Friday is the season premier of Dr. Who. Oh well, they'll rerun them LOL.
I was going to just get basic but Anna likes some of the On Demand shows, like Sesame Street, etc. I'm not ordering movie channels. I rarely if ever watch them. I keep the TV off most of the time when I'm home unless there's something specific I want to see.
Ugh, it's so slow and boring at work right now!

That is sooo cool! I love when I go to the movies or see a commercial of a location I am familiar with. They are always filming things around here. I like trying to see if I see an actor/actress. DH always see's Actors when he is at work (Studio City/North Hollywood) or when he delivers to Universal Studios.

That is really cool. I think sometimes when they film movies - it takes a really long time to come out on the big screen.

So does that mean you would go on the road with him? That's cool to see a tour bus. I wonder sometimes I see those buses with blacked out window who is really inside there! That is so awesome.

Hi All!
Ugh, I wish Monday would hurry up and get here! At least I'm getting some scrapping done LOL!
Although a few films were made in Philly the closest I've come to a star encounter is years ago when I worked at Dunkin' Donuts. And I mean YEARS ago LOL!
I honestly don't remember the name of the movie being filmed or who the star was that was in it. But for some reason they came to the Dunkin' Donuts I worked at on 4th & Oregon for their morning coffess and a HUGE order of muffins, etc. Seems whoever was in the starring role took a liking to my bran muffins. I was stuck working a month straight (I worked the grave yard shift) so the muffins were done "properly" LOL. LOL the only reason my muffins came out nicer was because I didn't follow the instructions in that dumb book. There was way too much water added to it, you know to stretch the batter to make more. Well, during the hours I worked there was no boss around, so I made them "right" LOL LOL!
It got me a $50.00 tip at the end of the month, so it wasn't too bad. $50.00 in 1985 was a nice amount!

I've also met the band Mudvayne and Gob. Mudvayne I met while we were waiting outside of the building for concert tickets. Their bus pulls up, they get out and just walked over and started talking! I almost died! They were totally normal and great guys. (The singer was HOT!) Gob I met twice at a small venue in the next town over. OH! I also literally ran right into Colin James at a truck stop when I was a little kid. I had no idea who he was though. My mom almost yelled at me for running into him until she saw who it was and then she just froze! LOl

I got to say hi to ZZ Top last year We were at a concert sitting 3rd row from the stage watching Pattie Labelle and ZZ Top was standing on the side of the stage watching her also, I ran up said Hello and told them I love their music. They were very polite and spoke back !
Nice birthday!

Renee I hope you feel better

I am so happy my DH went back to work today (he has been off sick since Jan) I am happy for 3 reasons 1. We need the money 2. Because he's well enough to go back 3. Because I can scrap without being bothered
He works 2nd shift and I work 1st so my evenings are my own.


SO HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE?!!!!

Good for you Sheila! Now you can scrap in peace! And more money for scrapping Yippy!

WE started our weekend last night at B.J.'s we had pizza and drinks. I had Berry Burst Beer it was so cold and so Yummy! Tonight we go out to dinner with DH family. Then Sat. is my nephew's 4th birthday! That should be fun especially because my DB & SIL just split up and are getting divorced. It's for the better all she did was complain about him. So this should be interesting. Sunday hopefully I will be able to scrap DH lets me scrap he does not bother too much especially because I will be in the same room as he. But when I get up he asks "where are you going" I laugh and tell him. He's funny! They do require a lot of attention though!

Well I spent my Sat on the couch holding my 3 yr old,she cried since lunch complaining with everything from her ear to her toes hurting. I called the Dr to see if maybe she had developed strep even though they did a test on her friday and it was neg.but since her sister had it you never know,well he said he didn't think that was it that it was probably just a viral infection so ok......on with the screaming and cryin and Tylenol...well finally she says my ear hurts which was the only thing that she had not said earlier...so I call doc back well guess what he NEVER returned my call oh I was soooooo *&*&*&*%% so I wait just a bit longer bcuz now my only option is the ER and I wasn't sure if it was an emergency or not.....well fever shoots up she is sleeping then cryin sleeping then crying and nothing would comfort her,so at 5:30 I decide we were going,I get there and 6:30,it was 11:00 before we got home...she had an ear infection apparently a bad one she never acts like that....well we get there and they call her back to triage,her fever was 102.3 so they go ahead and give her some tylenol and within 45 min she perked up and as not crying...so not only did the doc not call me back but at an earlier date he told me the wrong dose of tylenol to give her,so I wsan't giving her enough which is why the fever was not changing...aarrghhhhhhhhhh...she slept good last night and is better this morning than she was....thank goodness.

So one with strep and one with an ear infection what a good weekend I have had,LOL bless them....It hurts when they hurt..I am praying for a better week! And dh will be off next weekend......yeeahhhhh he is suppose to work a dance Friday night, we have a pickle festival here every April and the Band of Oz will be here Friday night...so I get in free!! WOOHOO!! I can't wait!! If you have ever heard of Mt.Olive Pickles that is us : )!!!

Well now that I am off my soapbox I will go!!! LOL

Margaret - I hope your children get better soon! That is seems so hard when they are small and you are guessing what's wrong. Then not knowing the correct dosage of tylenol. Because of course you don't want to gine them too much. It sure seems so scary to be a parent!!!

My DH drove cross country for Werner for 4 months he did not like it. He is a people person and he was so lonely. So he came home It was soooo hard for me to be without him. I would go to work and come home eat cereal and go to bed. I was so depressed. But now he comes home every night! He now works for UPS Freight.

I finally have my Internet back! Talk about bored... ugh. No TV, phone or Internet for a week. Blech I've gotten spoiled with all the technology.
Margaret I hope your children are feeling better. Anna was supposed to stay all weekend but went home Saturday afternoon. I spent all night Friday and most of Saturday cleaning up... she had some kind of stomach virus.
Sheila I hope they can do something for your pain soon. It's definitely not fun needing pain meds all the time. I can barely function without my ******** and even with it still have pain.

Good Morning.
I'm staying home today. Whatever Anna had over the weekend, is now living in my stomach, yuck.
If I need to keep making a run for the bathroom I'd rather do it at home. I'm sure my co-workers would prefer that too LOL!

Hey Anne I'm home too with a stomach thing. I got so sick last night and decided to stay home I think it is the 1st time this year I called in sick but I made DH call because my Supervisor was not in a great mood yesterday so I was a little chicken to call her at 4:45 am ! She is much nicer to Men so she was sooo nice to him. He ended up coming home too because he said he was scared cause I never call in. I'm fine my tummy is just so sore from Vo**ting yuck!

I've uploaded a few things in my gallery if anyone is interested in looking! Cards & ATC's!

I know what you mean Renee. I see the wholesale prices as well and everday the price just keeps going higher and higher.
The smaller fuel companies like the one I work for hate when the price goes so high. People buy less and of course we make less money.

Gas prices keep going up here too,they are at 3.59 right now and that happened in a 3 week period. I don't know what we will do,as was said earlier pay is not going up, so for the ones that are on the bottom of the totem pole we are gonna be in trouble..we are trying to cut corners every way that we can but it is not that easy especially with 2 lil ones.

I know exactly what you mean Margaret. I had to give up my car. Between the cost of insurance and gas I just can't keep up with it. I'm helping my dd financially with Anna and just can't afford to help and keep the car. So I decided to sell the car. My dd's boyfriend is going to buy it. He can't pay the full amount at once so I'm going to let him make payments weekly.
It works out for both of us, he gets a car with decent mileage per gallon (it's a 1999 Saturn) and I'll have some extra money every week.

I just won $100 on the lottery!
I usually play about $3.00 worth of the 4-digit on payday. My dd's birthday came out boxed so for my 50 cent ticket I get $100 back!
Anna really needs some summer stuff so I'll be shopping tomorrow

Margaret
I hear you. Food prices are just as bad as the gas prices anymore. Now that my dd and granddaughter aren't living her I no longer qualify for food stamps. My dd has an appointment on Tuesday to go apply.
My dd didn't want to apply because the State makes you attend this program if you're not working. My dd went after Anna was born when she was getting cash assistance. It's supposed to help you get a job. Yeah right. My dd said all she did there was a few things on the computer and helped them file. When I saw the resume example they gave her I almost fell off my chair. A prospective employer would glance at that and toss it. It was 4 pages long and some of the worst fomatting I have ever seen!
She needs to apply for the food stamps though BUT she got good news today. She's been accepted at the CHI Institute to take classes to become a Vetinary Assistant! She's so excited. I'm hoping the financial aid works out for her. This would be an excellent opportunity (and she won't have to go the State's ridiculous EARN program!).

Food Prices -
They aren't so bad to me we buy our meats in bulk and freeze them in small portions. And it works out that we only buy it every 2-3 months. Same with the household items soap,t.p., toothpaste, laundry soap, dish soap, paper towels all that stuff we only buy every 3 months or so. It works for us but then it's just me and dh so things seem to last a lot longer.

Hi my good friends here
Just dropping by to say i miss you all. Im on my 38 weeks and Im getting scared and excited at the same time. I know the labour and delivery would be painful and im asking for all your prayers.. My tolerance to pain is low and i hope that I can make it..Im so inactive here lately and i hope you understand ..

Renee, its great to shop and stock supplies. I like that. I can imagine goin to your house and seeing lots of goodies. yumyumyum...

Anne, congratulations for winning the lottery. $100.00 is a big thing.

Hugs to all !

Hi Milz!
It's so good to hear from you. Don't worry it will all be over soon and you'll have a beautiful little boy to love.
As for the pain of labor and delivery I won't lie to you it is painful. BUT often it's more scary than anything. And don't worry too much it will all go fine With all three of my children I did not use pain medications. Believe it or not with my first the pain really wasn't that bad. Although in spite of having FMS I'm told I have a high tolerance for pain.
Are you going to use anything for pain? I didn't but my dd had an epidural. It really helped her. Oh yeah and she had nubain in the beginning. That must be some kind of pain medicine LOL she said she saw the stork and Elmo at one point LOL. But it made her delivery easier.
It's an exciting, scary and joyous time for you. I will keep you in my prayers and I'm sure everything will go great for you and your little one.
