So many things going on lately that it's a good thing I took a little break from the ole blog. WHEW!! Here is hoping that things get back on track ASAP! LOL
Okay, so tell me...what have you all been up to? I am dying to know! I have missed you oh so MUCH!
I better fill you in on what has been going on with me and then we will get onto happier things...I had a pretty rough week not this past week, but the week before. After 16 wonderful years together I had to say goodbye to my sweet biddy, Callie. She got very sick and my only choice was to put her down. It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. You see, I don't have any children so when these things happen to my pets, it COMPLETELY tears me up inside. And when you have a pet for 16 years...well, you know EXACTLY how hard I took it. Sigh...
To top it all off, my closest friend from work decided that leaving the company was the best thing for her. It wasn't the best thing for me, but I know why she decided to leave and I fully support her decision 100%. It still doesn't make it any easier to go into work knowing that she isn't there. This was the same week I lost my little Callie, do you see where this is going?
So by Thursday of that week I was pretty exhausted, mentally and emotionally. So tired... that as I was driving home in bumper to bumper traffic, I nodded off and rear ended the car in front of me. Shhhhh, everyone is okay. I am okay. My car is NOT okay but she is getting fixed, YEAH!
Then we get to this week, right? What is it about companies laying people off during the holidays? During the "happiest time of year?" I think it is crap. I don't care that you want to do it before it hits your books, I don't care that it is the end of the fiscal year, PEOPLE, get your heads out of your BUTT! My work decided that we needed a lay some people off, it happens EVERY year during this time. I was VERY fortunate that it wasn't me but my heart goes out to the people it DID happen to. I am at a loss of words for them...BIG sigh...
So what good things DID happen during my absence? Well, let's see...
I received word that my car was going to be able to be fixed rather than having to go buy a new car. YEAH!!! As much as I would LOVE a new car... I sooooooo DID NOT want a car payment. BOOOOOO to car payments, YEAH to sweet baby RAV who is getting a new front end! WOOHOO!!!
Ummm, let's see what else...well, for my Happy Birthday my husband hired the PERFECT CLOSET to remodel our office. Yep, gone are the mismatched pieces of furniture and instead I now have a built in wrap-a-round desk with cabinets on the wall and a new and improved closet. WOOT! WOOT! Hello organization! I will take pictures once I get everything put back in it's place.
I tried out for the OBP DT. Made it to Round 2. VERY excited about that! In fact, here is one of the cards I made for Round 2...
I used the new SU! colors to make this card. That Kiwi Kiss really gets me. As does the Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze...darm them! Darn them for coming up with such luscious colors! LOL
And how friggin' fun are those stamps? C'mon people, you know what I am talking about! LOL And did you see the sneak peek
of the new gnomes on Johanna's blog? Crikey. I have SUCKER written all over my forehead. YIKES!
Alrighty then, I guess I better go. I have a TON of stuff to get done. I will be thankful when this month is over. And to think I was so excited about Halloween this year. URGH!!! There is still time to get excited though, huh? :)
Okie dokie, see you later Peeps!
