The Office....

is the funniest show on television.... I am telling you.. if you have not watched it regularly, you have to !!! It cracks me up... anyone who works can relate to the show... the office manager is just hilarious... he is so stupid and the co workers genuine and annoying faces just say it all...
Jon and I sit and laugh for hours at this...
I so hope to get the box set for Christmas... he he and be able to laugh all the time..
laughing is really making me happy right now...
this week:
no Scenic Route design team
no piggy tails design team
no scrappers bliss design team
still waiting on memory makers masters (not likely) with over 500 apps and such talent that applies...
and KI memories colorful contest (another not likely)..
anyways, lots of gals are pretty disappointed this week because of all of the rejection but i guess my skin is thicker because even though it was alot of work to apply and would be nice to win, its just not the end of the world for me...
and things like the office dundee awards show just makes me smile...
so if you are having an off week... go watch the office... even though it won't take away any pain... it really does turn your frown into a smile and that is about all I can ask for !!!
peace,
kimo

had these headaches....

that are migraine strength!!! Yikes, I"m in super pain but seem to go away by lunch time!! ?? need to get to a doctor...

Jon got activated and deployed to Atlanta with the HUGE team of disaster medical assistants from around the country and Red Cross where they WAIT for the hurricane Ernesto to make his mark and then they will move accordingly... if it is much weaker than expected, he may end up coming home but if it does move up the coast (not too far North I hope!!!) then he will be gone for two weeks....

The guys have worked on the house all day yesterday windows are in and I think sub floor is completely done... of course, they are not here today! UGH...drives me crazy..

anyhoo, Erin has her K orientation tomorrow ... she is so nervous (so scared) she keeps saying... poor little thing I keep trying to re-assure her how fun it will be but she is really terrified.. she will be fine once she gets there...
she keeps telling me she is never going to college!!! I keep telling her to wait till she is 18 and I'll ask her and see what she says then! lol

Ryan is okay, same ole funny little man... doing his thing... one more week of vacation (i just gotta survive another week with him at home!) and then he starts back on the 7th..
Erins official day is the 6th... so next week, Thursday around 1pm... I'm going into the bedroom, shutting the door(setting the alarm) and falling asleep... despite the noise, dishes, etc... just because I can...and wake up around 3:30 to get them both off the bus...
I CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Peace, everyone,
hope all is well.

whirlwind of a week....

Yesterday I was at Right at home scrapbooking taking a class from the very popular and talented Elsie Flanigan... I took NO pictures because It was too darn hot!!! I almost passed out between all the scrap celebrities and the new products and the heat... it was all too much for me! lol
I had her autograph my tag book though which I will post later...
Ryan had his last day of Summer school which means for the next 2 weeks or so I'm on red alert... he is a stinker and gets into everything.. so my scrapping/ computer time will be cut WAY back.... It's all good though and we have a few mini day trips planned to Mystic and the zoo, etc... we also will do the free video store known as the Barrington library... they have a better assortment than blockbuster!

Scrapbookers don't forget to load your layouts over at As the World scraps for the contest in the gallery... the prize will be amazing.. Karen is very generous...
can you say, chipboard, prima flowers, alphabet tiles, rub ons, etc etc... so ENTER people!!!!
I'm off to root for my friend Jen Smack, who has moved on to round 3 of Last Scrapper Standing..for the Effer Dares... !!!! This is so amazing!
and wish me luck as I enter round two of the Ms scraptastic beauty pageant.. (its just scrpping but we joke alot about high heels and fake nails and boob tape!)
Its really just for fun and I'm laughing so hard at the references the girls have...
Reality TV can be very entertaining in the scrapbook part of the world...hee hee..

sweaty work men or open house with pool.... hmmmmm.....???
so Sat we went to the zoo and today just got caught up, dishes, laundry, cleaning, baths, etc....
Tomorrow, more work on the house...

With a ton of ideas... thats right, the mojo is flowing and I gotta roll with it... I always feel a little guilty though, like I should be cleaning our bedroom or playing with the little nuggets... but then I get a great idea and bam.... create stuff...
