Oh come on girls... Don't I deserve even a little sympathy for being tired? Hanging out on the beach is a lot harder than you'd think it would be. Lol

Looking forward to the new round. I can't wait to see who my new sister is

Mel, I'm so happy everything is going well for Rafe's surgery. I pray that the surgery works. That poor little baby should have to go through such traumatic seizures. I just want to cry every time I think of that poor baby having those.

I had the picnic with all the grands. It was Brooke's idea though. Even little baby Drake was there. He's sitting up now so it was fun for him.

Good for you Rachel! You girls are so organized!

Earlier this week I broke two of the fingers on my left hand and had to have stitches as well. I am just such a clutz sometimes! It is getting better but I'm still a terrible typer with it like this!




Wow Pink!!! How in the world did you do that? I'm so sorry!! How are you getting along?

I did it by lifting a very heavy candy jar and dropping it on my hand and the wire rack it was sitting on. I need to learn to stay away from sweets!





LMAO!!! Well at least you have a sense of humor about it. I'm so sorry for your hand though.

Megan - I went to Archivers today and they were having a sale 43% off all patterened paper, surely it wasn't just mine. I will say the store was packed.



I'm immediately thinking 'wish I was there'!! However, if it was between Delaina's store 'Sweet Memories' and Archivers, I think I'd have to opt for Delaina's - and of course, the bathroom was to die for - I will definitely be scrapping THAT in due course!

Mel Congrats on such great news. You done good

Megan those owls are really cute!

Hope everyone has a great start to their week...I have to go and decide my career path today with my boss through our re-org. Not really looking forward to it. They announced there will be a lot of layoffs last week so it's really hard to plan for a future position when you don't know if you'll even have a job in a few months. I've got my fingers crossed.

Rachel, I was loading the pics from your CD onto my computer so I could pick pictures for my GA mini album, so I took another look at the wedding photo card. Emily so looks like you! You can really see it in the pic of you 2 together.

Mel, that's great about finding a doctor who'll do the surgery pro bono, and the fundraiser.

Nancy, good luck at work. that must be so stressful!

I would also choose Sweet Memories over Archivers. I spent more money at Sweet Memories, though if we had gone to Archivers first, I could have picked up some of the same items.

So I guess my son is officially moving back in. He just brought his Pit Bull over last night. Sweet dog though. His name is Milton. He's already adopted me. Won't leave me alone. LOL. He's staying in the Florida room right now. My poor old dog is a B!+(# and she's growling at Milton through the French doors.

He got in the house last night and my old dog started really growling at him. Poor Milton was trying to get back outside. My dog is about 16 years old. She's very possessive. It takes her a long time to adopt another animal into her coven. She's bff's with the cat now. Or maybe Momma and son. Not sure but they love on each other all the time.


Nancy, I hope things work our for you on your job. That's really scary having to worry about that all the time.

thank you for the love girls!!!

Tina, I'm not sure about that one yet. He's been here the past 2 weeks and things are fine, but he's messy!!! Every time he gets a drink he gets a new glass. He comes with a DOG!!! He had clothes in the utility room constantly. I will cook more now. But, I'm hoping by the beginning of next year he'll be ready to get a place of his own again.

On the plus side he does everything I ask him to do. Mow the grass, take out the trash, pick his clothes up out of the bathroom floor. LOL!!!

OH, and btw girls, I have a coffee date this afternoon. It's a guy I've been talking to online for awhile. He's been in India. He works 5 weeks out of the country and 5 weeks off. My kind of guy. LOL!!! Plus he's a computer tech. (swoon) I'll let you know how it goes.

I was actually getting my little ones a lollipop each but I'm known for getting into the tiny Chiclett gum, cotton candy rock candy, and red swedish fish...I go through phases. Sometimes, I like Salt and vinegar chips, sometimes it's sweets, and sometimes, it's nothing! If I had more nothing times, maybe my scale wouldn't read such a high number, right???

My hand is feeling better though, thanks for asking! And Megan Ann~I'm with you on the pain medication! I don't like to just be in pain constantly if I can help it!

I went to Archiever's for the first time when I went to visit sweet Rebecca~and I was hooked. She had this other store that was her favorite and I remembered wondering how she could like it better than Archievers...but I like it better now too! If you've seen one Archievers, you've seen them all, I think. Not that they aren't amazing...or that I would ever pass one by either!

That is an amazing paper deal!

Oh, how sweet. When was she born? Capri was born on July 22 so she's about the same age as your kitty. I need to get a picture of her and post here. She just weighs 1 pound now and she is just the tiniest little pup, but she thinks she's big! I LOVE her so much...and she's been so easy to train...It's been perfect!

I haven't named her yet... she is only 9 weeks old


Oh, how sweet. When was she born? Capri was born on July 22 so she's about the same age as your kitty. I need to get a picture of her and post here. She just weighs 1 pound now and she is just the tiniest little pup, but she thinks she's big! I LOVE her so much...and she's been so easy to train...It's been perfect!




You are not gonna believe this... she was born on July 25th!!!

Y*E*S you do need to get a picture posted of Capri!!!!

Deb I'll be waiting to hear about your coffee date. I think I could get used to a guy being around 5 weeks, then gone 5 weeks.

Hoping my lil sister is having a terrific tuesday. I have a question for you, are you a Starbucks fan?



I LOVE coffee, but I've never been to Starbucks. I live in a small town with a local coffee shop and love their pumpkin spice lattes-yummmmmmm!

Go Nikilynn- what fantastic news! So - does this mean one mega trip to Archivers, or will you sit back and buy everything on your wish list - this is bonus time - right?

Nikilynn~if you do your whole wishlist, I want to know what it feels like!!! I will NEVER in a million years be able to do that. Unless I give up ebay, and that's not happening! I do buy a ton of goodies when I go shopping and get to remove several items off my wishlist. Scrapbook.com carries so much stuff though, it's impossible to find everything they offer!

Imelda~lots of sisters send packages directly from scrapbook.com and if you order and tell scrapbook.com to not show your identity, they are usually great about doing that. Also, Joann's Fabric is another one that will hide your identity. A lot of the sisters don't know where each other live too...so sending from your house isn't impossible.

Thank you SO much!!! I'm soo excited!!!

A great way to do it is order online and have it shipped to her (MAKE SURE.... that you tell them to leave off your personal information and that you placing the order for a secret sister swap, I know lots of girls that do that... then you can shop for her last one.. and send it from where you live.

Rachel, I was loading the pics from your CD onto my computer so I could pick pictures for my GA mini album, so I took another look at the wedding photo card. Emily so looks like you! You can really see it in the pic of you 2 together.

Mel, that's great about finding a doctor who'll do the surgery pro bono, and the fundraiser.

Nancy, good luck at work. that must be so stressful!

I would also choose Sweet Memories over Archivers. I spent more money at Sweet Memories, though if we had gone to Archivers first, I could have picked up some of the same items.




I never used to think we look alike, but maybe its as shes grown older? She has wonderful skin that tans in an instant, whereas I'm fair skinned like my boys; she is shortsighted like her dad; she has a strange very English sense of humour - also like her dad - its nice that maybe she and I are becoming a little more similar even though she has so many of his quirks (none of which are bad - just different from me)!

Oh yeah, and Rachel, you already sent me a photo card from the wedding. I just remembered to tell you that. I saw that you had one set aside to mail. I got it about a month or so ago. Not sure, but it's still on the window sill in my kitchen.




Hmmm - well you have another one on the way now! I'm getting absent minded in my old age, I think!

thank you for the love girls!!!

Tina, I'm not sure about that one yet. He's been here the past 2 weeks and things are fine, but he's messy!!! Every time he gets a drink he gets a new glass. He comes with a DOG!!! He had clothes in the utility room constantly. I will cook more now. But, I'm hoping by the beginning of next year he'll be ready to get a place of his own again.

On the plus side he does everything I ask him to do. Mow the grass, take out the trash, pick his clothes up out of the bathroom floor. LOL!!!

OH, and btw girls, I have a coffee date this afternoon. It's a guy I've been talking to online for awhile. He's been in India. He works 5 weeks out of the country and 5 weeks off. My kind of guy. LOL!!! Plus he's a computer tech. (swoon) I'll let you know how it goes.




You're swooning over a computer tech person? Is that just so you can get him to fix your computer when things go wrong? Sounds like a geek to me!!! You want someone who can do wining and dining and flowers and candlelight and romance - forget fixing your software (or maybe fixing your SOFTware is whats needed)!!

Wait, I have to ask: What is a photo card from the wedding? I got cake and a picture plus the disc of pictures from the retreat! Loved your wedding picture Rachel




The photocard was just that - a sort of elongated postcard with 6 small pics from the wedding on it. Was that what I sent you? I can't remember - but I know I thought I'd sent one to everyone I sent a cd to!

I'm trying to book the local podiatrist to see my mom on Saturday when we have her for the weekend. For any of you new gals who have missed out on the stories of my on-the-way-to-crazyoldlad y-land - then I'm sure this weekend will not disappoint!

I have to admit to half dreading it, whilst at the same time making myself feel that at least I'm not neglecting her. As long as there is no food being hurled on the floor this time, I'll be happy!

Hiya Big Sister!

My day is OK. Sweet girl is home from school with a bad cough and sore throat. Kitty is in for a surprise when I pop her in a box and take her to the vet later... grocery chopping is done. Kind of a boring day. It is fabulous after the super busy September!!

How are you? How is the weather today for you? Any special things happening in your neck of the woods? hmmmmmm?

If that's the case, the shipping is also cheaper if you ship directly from sb.com!

and Nikilynn and Kimberly are right, sb.com is pretty good about taking off the personal info if you ask.

Nikilynn - thank you for your response, you are such a sweetie. Congrats on the bid and you big bonus.

I do know my state flower is the Cherokee Rose, 8th grade "state" history! lol I thought dh's state would have been the Rhododendron since it is Smokies everywhere and we even have one here too. His the iris though.

Pink - I must have been meaning to send one to you when I sent the second one to Debs! Oh heavens - what a numbskull I am! I'll get one to you. I just had a few done - enough for all my retreat friends, cos you had all been so involved in making the invites, and then we sent one to each of the people who had sent a donation to the charity even though they a)couldnt come to the wedding or b)we werent able to invite them cos of our numbers! We also sent a few out to people who had given exceptionally generous donations, cos we were so grateful on behalf of the Thembalitsha family.

Imelda, dear, your wishlist is shamefully short! How on earth am I supposed to spoil you with that? Please add to it!

Also, a few questions:
What is your favorite color?
Fave tv show?
Fave food?
Top 3 paper manufacturers?
Top 3 types of embellishments?
