Is this the beginning of the ice age?
I was dead serious.
We have snow. Lots of it. We've shovelled once already and it will have to be done again.
Sadly, in the begining of this ice age, I already know how it's going to end. The intelligent people (us) won't make it. How do I know this? Because in near white out conditions, Kerry and I put our lives at risk and drove to Chapters to look for magazines. I did finally cave and bought the last Simple mag. Why is it snow always brings out the freaks? We saw a guy not just run the light but go through the intersection after the light had turned red, what makes it weird is that he was kind of haning out the driver's side door and we could see his foot on the ground. He wasn't in a hurry either.
Here's some stuff my clean and sparkly eyes have seen in the last 2 days. My Sally girl with her new look for the camera, for some reason she squints at the camera now.
Here is the plethora of ribbon from the above envelope, and a big ol'Linus nose checking it out. He says that's some pretty wide rickrack and he can't wait to see what I make with it.
I HAD to go to Costco today, being sick no one did any grocery shopping and we needed food. But after being out for 2 hours, I'm now totally bagged and need to have a rest. I really want to get back into my crafty routine! At least now I have some food to sustain life as the peeps know and like it.

Sally's mouth is huge in this picture, looks kind of like a Muppet mouth. I'm sure she's thinking "Look out Mom! I'm comin' to get you!"

My sob story, besides the fact someone wouldn't get me potato chips at 9:30 pm.....I can't use my camera. I can't put my eyes near it. I don't want to get it infected. I could use my baby camera because it has a screen, but really, once you've used the big one, you don't really want to go back.
I have no interest in reading, can't really see much anyways, I have to watch tv with my left eye closed, and then I usually fall asleep. I don't have any interest in scrapbooking even though I would like to. I'm sure not going out. So I lay on the couch, I watch the shows I like and then I watch the shows I don't like because everyone knows that there can't be good tv 24 hours a day. But no matter what time it is, Seinfeld is on, so that's always an option.
I can't taste anything either, but my good son did pick up some Old Dutch corn chips for me and they are so salty that I can taste them.
There's my 'woe is me' post for the day.

I've never had pink eye before, no one in my family has either. But then I'm running the gambit on new and never tried things that concern the walk-in clinic. Remember just before Christmas, I had sinusitis, never had that before and never had the allergic reaction to penicillin that followed shortly after that. I also had never had chicken pox and this clinic is the same one that diagnosed that fun that lasted more than 6 weeks. And now the pink eye! No wonder Dr. My-Name-Is-Roy laughed that crazy belly laugh when he looked over my file.
I just realized that the Dr.'s name might me Manamisroy. Oops.

My mom and dad went out and all they brought back for me was this prickly pinecone.

I have had the same old, cracked cell phone for almost 4 years. I only need a phone, not a camera, not internet connection, not a texter, that's what I had - the most basic phone. Who knew I could trade it in? We didn't until we went looking for a phone for Emily. So now I have this phone, mp3 player and camera. I've got my trusty ipod so the phone will only double as a camera in dire situations. Like last night, at Big White while tubing. My big camera is too big, my baby camera is too big and hates the cold. So I got crappy phone pics of us tubing. Not worth the money to upload them! And Shaun lost his very expensive phone while tubing, but his good ol' mom spotted it at the end of the run and saved the day, yet again.
I didn't love the tubing. It was scary, I got some air, my stomach was somewhere around my heart, it was cold, but the kids and Kerry LOVED it. Kerry said the best part was watching me. Most runs down the hill I had my eyes slammed shut, so hard that they actually hurt. I managed to open them towards the end for maybe 3 runs. And I probably did that many runs by myself, the rest of the time I had to have a seeing eye buddy.
I made these today for Emily and her friend, I used specialty paper for Copic markers for the inner pages.

Right now, this is the only picture in the 5 pages album.And there isn't any journaling.

I got my PotP kit and have used almost all of it making a bunch of cute things. Here's a sneak peak.
Sally typically stays away from Linus. He is so not her sweet baboo. But for some reason they both had to be on this dog bed. He was there first, she curled up between his legs. He's scared.
Linus likes to stand in the kitchen and watch me bake. He is always hopeful that I will drop something good to eat for him. He has no idea that I dropped pancake mix on him.

My Pick of the Patch https://www.pickofthepatch.com/ kit is coming in about 30 minutes.
Must get dishes done, scrapspace cleaned up, take dogs out, defrost dinner, and sweep floors.
I have a class tonight, so I don't have much time to drool/play with the kit. Pictures will follow. Boy, I wish I had a diet Pepsi or Coke to celebrate with. Must go put pants on.
Who knew? Me, with nothing to say, about anything...but really, I have things to say about not having anything to say.
-I could blog about the controversy of the FSA testing...my opinion is that it isn't helping the children's eductation, it isn't controlled in any way, ditch it, the kids get so little real 'education' time now, and this cuts into it.
-I could blog about my total stalling in my Design Your Life class. I can't even get started again, and yes, the class is 5 weeks past being finished. This also runs into the Project 365 I've been doing. I've run out of things to take pictures of. Kids aren't any fun, dogs are done, snow is still here.
-I could blog about what I've been doing...made cookies last night using Marg's secret recipe, had an awsome sushi dinner with Misty-Rae, lots of catching up, Terrell came over to learn the basic needs for scrapbooking, scared her away, watched new tv...Heroes(got messed up), Medium, Law and Order SVU, nothing super exciting, just everyday stuff.
-I could blog about how I'm not loving my Movers and Shapers die, I'm going to call SU and tell them instead of blogging about it.

GSP? That's what I would have said a few months, even weeks ago. But I knew that a big UFC fight was coming and after kind of enjoying the last one I went to, I made plans to attend this one.
I knew that my friend M-R loves GSP, George St. Pierre, but I didn't know what he even looked like. Well, I do know. He's Canadian! He's got blue blue eyes and a tight bum! And he can fight, he's quick. Who wouldn't want to see that?
He fought BJ Penn, who kind of resembled the Pillsbury dough boy, soft and doughy. GSP won! It was a good fight if you like GSP!
Fightnight always makes me aggressive afterwards.
And as much as I like hanging with 'famous' people, I much prefer the famous scrapbookers to the famous mountain bikers. 2 of the guys at Dad's fight night are/were pro riders. They talk more than girls. I so could have taken the little guy down and stuffed a sock in his mouth. Overall, I had a good time, M-R is hilarious, she gets quite worked up.
I plan on doing a few crafty things today. Must get back to my mild mannered self!
