My BIG order of all new CTMH stuff comes, hubby comes home, supper......no big deal. THEN, my daughter was outside and said that the neighbors dishwasher was ON FIRE. OMG>...Im running out of the house wondering what the heck shes talking about, my friend (the neighbor) is outside all upset, her hubby comes to the door and says "Its Out"! Its ok!! Oh my gosh!!!!!
SO, she was home, making dinner and running the dishwasher and he had just walked in with their son when sparks and fire were flying out of their dishwasher!!! She didnt know what to do, called 911, grabbed a cat and ran outside!! Thats when my dd had come to get me. WOW. SO, of course the WHOLE entire town was here then. The police car, the fire guy, then TWO fire trucks!! Must of been a boring night in Denver! lol Luckily we live real close by too. SO, everything and everyone is Ok. The dishwasher is OUT for the trash or Insurance people or whatever. When they brought it out and we looked inside the dishwasher to the start of the fire, it was SCARY!!! Just glad them and their house and their animals were all ok. Scary thing.
NOW, its bedtime!!!

The other part of our big day.....we went to Lowe's to look at new stoves and dish washers! lol Boy, some new stuff is built pretty crappy! We need to keep looking though!!! We are working on furniture and this stuff. Its time to spend some money we don't really have, but need to spend on this stuff. Ya Know?
Thursday, May 8, 2008
First, I have lots of art work and stuff to share. I need to take pictures and then you all will probably get tired of seeing it! Cards, cards and more cards. With my uplines meetings and a stamp of the month swap, I have LOTS to share!!!!
I have many events coming up to this month. Every Sat. in May I have something to do that is stamp/card/scrapbook related. I cant wait!!! With my last weekend being away for the whole weekend up in the mountains for a retreat!
We also just upgraded our Direct TV and I got that DVR thing too!!! Lol Yeah, I know, we are WAY behind....but that's ok. I, well none of us really wanted to spend the money. But, for a few dollars more a month and all new free equipment, why not. I was getting VERY VERY tired of watching Disney and Nick every night and having really nothing else to watch.
TESTS... Well, Kimberly has been complaining of a pain, not really in her stomach, but above, so I took her to the Dr. the other day and we had to take her for a few tests to see whats up. She is only 14, but the doc was thinking maybe gallbladder?!?! Not sure about that. There are no other signs, but there aren't for anything else there either. We shall see. SO, since SHE had to go for blood work early in the morning and NO eating or drinking for the ultrasound, I had been hoarding blood test orders for MONTHS too and decided to get them done. We just got this whole new awesome building built that you can get all your testing done in one place at one time. Then we all went out for breakfast! lol Food is always a good thing!
ALSO, for those that I actually speak or might know, that I have been having terrible headaches for like a month now. I went to the Dr. the other week and had HIGH bp!! ME, geez, go figure?!? lol SO, got some pills and today went back after almost 2 weeks and it has come down. Whew. SO, now I guess I get to take ANOTHER pill every dang day! BUT, I am MORE so hoping that MY headaches GO AWAY and STAY away. They have NOT yet GONE all together.
We also seem to be having some issues with Kimberly at school and her lying and different things. I hope this stops real soon!!!!
I'm gonna call it a day now, but wanted to update some here anyway.
Hopefully SOON I WILL put some pictures up.
Sunday, April 20, 2008
All in all, I think our first family Sunday went pretty well! We figured we have all week and every other night to do whatever and ignore each other! lol At least ONE day should be spent together. We used to do this all the time, I'm not sure how we let slip away.

First, his name is Judson Laipply. I visited his website and he of course has the dance evolution on it, but he also has parts from the speeches he gives. AWESOME!!! Im sure Jud will never come to my neck of the woods here in PA, but even IF he put a video out with his speech on it, it would be great!! SO many things rang true. WOW.
Here is just one of his sites. You can find the myspace one just by putting in his name.
Well, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I have a 55 gallon fish tank, stand and only 2 poor fishes left. A really BIG what I call chocolate pleco and a big silver dollar. Yup, thats it!! Two fish in a 55!!! lol Pretty lame. Well, anyway, I just can NOT and have not taken care of it. It (among other things) is very hard for me to do. So it has been neglected. I get upset, pissed off, angry and saddened once in a while and do something, but its not enough. The filters really need cleaned and the pads changed, but that is major cleaning work. I bought some new filter pads and that is as far as I got. Family to help? HA! They are busy, or NOT, but they don't want to mess with it either. I just don't want to watch the fish die. They still might with a move, but at least I wont know! Wont really be my fault for letting it get so bad either. The algae is terrible too. UGH! :( :( very sad.
The other part of it that is sad.....Greg bought me this tank & stand from a neighbor YEARS ago when we first got together! We lived in a SMALL 1 bedroom, efficiency apartment. I worked across the parking lot in a grocery store. Our neighbor was selling his tank and fish and all of it. I was drooling! He even had angel fish, wish I also loved at that time. We really shouldn't buy it....we really do NOT have any room for it, its HUGE!!!! Well, anyway, I came home from work and they had moved it and had it all set up by the time I got there!!! What a surprise. SO, that part is hard too. But, I know, we know it is for the best! PLUS, we will gain a WHOLE other wall!!!! lol I still have like a 20 gallon long or high or something weird like that downstairs. But, I think for a while now, NO more fish tanks!!!!! Sounds like the people taking are really excited! Oh, that's another thing....I'm giving it and fish away! We tried to sell it a while ago and it was either too big or too old. No one really wanted it I guess. SO, why not give to someone who needs it, wants it?!?!
Thursday, April 10, 2008
Since it DID get so warm and sunny/HOT today.....I cant wait to get my hair chopped OFF!! lol If anyone knew me before, I have had really short punky type hair for a long time. Well, now I have a daughter and she wanted to do girly things with hair so I started growing mine. She got hers CUT! lol Oh well!!! lol But, I have left mine grow and decided to get at least the 10 inches needed for Locks of Love. What a COOL idea!!!!! I should have about 11 now, so I am happy with that. I figured I would get it cut by summer time, because I will NOT be able to stand it so thick and long and HOT. I also cant take such good care of it anymore either. I hope to make someone happy with it.
I can NOT wait till Sat! I have an all day crop to go to and its NEW!!!!! I hope/think I will be the only CTMH person there. This is one my friend found in the paper (well actually her hubby!) and its for Tiny Miracles---premie babies and such. Raising money for that organizatioN!!!!! We like that too! :)

I also go up toward the State Collage area (mountains) a few times a year, and wouldnt it be great IF my phone actually WORKED?!? :)
SO, I finally decide Im gonna buy an AT&T phone. Our local Walmart does ATT, so I go there. The girl was great!!! She helped me out alot, told me what I needed to know and answered all my questions. SO, the other Wednesday I came home with a new phone. Sprint of course tried to talk me OUT of leaving them......If I had a newer phone, if this, if that...I Said NO WAY!!!!! YOu do NOT work and it didnt seem to matter about the phone.
SO, I go to the mountatins and the phone WORKS!!! All the way there, at the sb retreat and home again too! Plus, this thing doesnt need charged like FOREVER! Geeez. Its great. I swore I would never get a camera phone, but whats a girl to do when they ALL come with one?!?!? SO, I took a picture of my hubby and kid and can even do this caller picture id thing. Pretty coool!!!! Plus, I snapped a few of my kitties before I left for the weekend too! :)
Ok, gotta go watch Trace.
By the end of the night, I KNEW I was getting SICK! UGH. I have missed most of it for the longest time, but I guess it finally caught up to me. I felt absolutly terrible today. YUCK! I couldnt even really nap right because I felt so yuck! Then you KNOW its bad. lol
SO, Ive been popping cold meds and drinking oj and resting. See what tomorrow brings.
On another note. I MUST go watch the Celebrity Apprentice. TRACE Adkins made it to the end!!!! I have NEVER watched this show, and doubt that I will again, but Ive seen a few episodes and it was ok. I KNOW he will KICK the Brits Butt tonight!!! LOL Even if all else fails, its a big party and hes gonna perform at the end too. So, hopefully I can make it to stay AWAKE till 11PM!!! lol

I was talking about my scrap room that I some how needed more space on my table....my hubby promptly suggested that I get rid of some stuff to make room! lol That's NOT gonna happen. lol SO, he said we could get some brackets, we already had a big piece of wood, and make a shelf or two AND, this is the big thing, I will do it TODAY!!! WOW. That usually doesn't happen unless I beg, plead and yell! Lol So I cleaned most of the desk off and he put up two shelves and now I am slowly putting stuff back and trying to decide what really needs to be in reach, and what can go UP! I am also sorting and getting rid of a few things. I figure if I haven't used them at all or in a year or whatever, I probably will not use them. When I go to my weekend crop in March, there is a yard sale table. Someone else might love to have my stuff.
We went to Friendly's for ice cream sundaes last night. We hadn't done that in a long time and I was hungry for one. Man did that taste good. It took way over 1/2 hr to GET them, but they were yummy! Guess I should go finish putting my room back together and I think we need to eat supper yet to.

After school yesterday we needed a few things grocery wise, so we quick made a trip to Sharp Shopper. It is sort of a big 'left over' kind of place that also has lots of regular everyday stuff too. Like lots of NO name brands and that, and then some bent n dent I guess you call it. Most of there stuff if fine though. Some prices are NOT better then the regular grocery store and a bunch are. So I have started going there again like every couple of weeks. Lots of like cereals, pastas and snack stuff is great! Anyway, Im glad we did, because I would NOT have gone out today! lol We had milk and bread which seem to be the staple around here IF your gonna get snowed in!! lol Had lots of lunch and snacky type stuff too...which Im not sure is good or bad?!? hhhmm
I like to have some snack foods around, but then I EAT THEM!!! lol
I cleaned my scraproom up some yesterday and it and other things today. Trying to get stuff were it belongs and all together with its like stuff. Does that make sense? lol It seems I start to put like old school thing here, and then I forget or cant get there, so I start another pile....Im trying to get them into ONE pile now. I like to be organized!!! Doesnt always work, but I try!
I added some new people to my friends blog list. Some people I just found through others and some just started theirs. Check them out.

I didnt even take lots of pics. I usually do, even if I never use them, I like to see where Ive been! lol I left then on Sat. night to come home so me and my bunkmates could get some sleep. Apparently I snore VERY loudly!! It was sooo hot and dry there, I dont think that helped any, plus I was trying to get a cold.
Sundays Home Party Show went pretty good. All the planning and worrying and doing and all of a sudden it was here. There were LOTS of people!!! I couldnt beleive ALL the people! Lol
My friend Sandy helped me man the stand and we handed out lots of Free older catalogs, my business card with a little 1x1 stamp and another paper with my info and CTMH mission on it. SO, my name and CTMHs products are out there. People really loved the free IdeaBOoks!!! Everyone likes free stuff, especially something you can really use!
I have some people interested in doing some sort of workshop, so that will be next on my list. I have been sick most of this week. My ears and head hurt SO bad on Monday, I didnt do anything. Its getting better though every day.
This is just a small photo of my table at the Home Party show.

I actually picked up the van yesterday afternoon and took a few pics quick. Which is good, because it was raining/sleeting cold YUCK all day today! So, Im liking this pretty much.....new vehicle, looks nice, comfortable, a million buttons to play with! Lol My first big MiniVAN experience.....I went to the drive thru at the bank this morning and the lady asked IF I wanted any lollipops!!!!! UGH!!! lol What, have van must have kids??? lol NO way! lol But thats ok, I let it slide once. I really do like it, it is so much easier to get in and out of and is up a little bit higher. I cant wait to go on one of my scrapping weekend road trips!! Fill up the back with stuff, use the cruise control! Oh yeah, Im there!! lol

I have been busy lately doing some projects and swaps. When I have a reason to create I love it even more!! Its funny how I wasnt really a stamper before, but once I used the clear stamps...I feel in love! lol I also was one to say " I dont like to make cards, I just want to scrapbook"! Well, NOW I love making cards too!! lol Funny how fast things can change. Hope you enjoy.
Monday, January 21, 2008

|What Michon Means|
You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.
You are very open. You communicate well, and you connect with other people easily.You are a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from your mind.A true chameleon, you are many things at different points in your life. You are very adaptable.
You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.
You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.
You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

Well, this is what my husband is now working on. My daughter (14) wants to listening to the songs that her friends do and talk about. We are pretty strict (my hubby even more so then me) so, she isnt allowed to listen to a lot of the same things other kids her age are.
Anyway, so he would look up the song and THEN look up the lyrics. THAT was the scary part. One song was talking about his girl being superman or something, and that had to do with sex!! Who comes up with this stuff? And who would even THINK that it is NOT appropreaite?
SO, he started a blog here http://crapdefined.blogspot.com/ and will be looking into some of our top songs.
It is all pretty interesting! I hope that more parents and teachers start to pay attention to this stuff.
Wednesday, January 16, 2008
I am also going to be teaching a small class. I am still trying to decide...card or Easter basket type thing? I will have to take pictures and post and see what you think.

FINALLY got the christmas stuff OUT of my living room today too! WOW. Everything was basically packed up, but was waiting to go back to storage(instead of the basement). SO, we did that today. whew Hubby got a lot done yesterday and today too. He got his hard top on the Jeep so we can get that ready and get an ad in the paper to sell it.....so eventually I HOPEFULLY can buy that VAN!!! Lol Yes, that is STILL in the works. We put down a small deposit and luckily they are very nice people for letting it sit and wait for us to do our thing.
Well, thats all for now. I will take pics later of what I made yesterday and get them posted. I am very happy with how they turned out.
Friday, January 4, 2008
I have a crop to go to tomorrow. FINALLY A day out of the house and away from everyone! lol Dont get me wrong, I LOVE my family, but I need my Sat. scrap day away sometimes too!!! With the new CTMH catty and all kinds of awesome new papers and stamps and toys, I cant wait to play with them all tomorrow. Well, maybe not ALL of them, but some anyway! I have another crop on the 19th then too. Except I finally get to be a CTMH vendor for this one. How awesome is that? VERY!! lol I have been going to this crop for a while now. She has a few a year and its a crop for a cure to raise monies for the cancer relay team. Its great. Last summer, Lisa Bearnson from Creative Keepsakes even came to visit her!!!! She (Lisa B.) gave us all a magazine, autographed it and talked to each one of us and let us take pics too! It was really awesome!
Well, I think I hear my pillow calling my name. I have another headache and just cant stand it anymore. Hopefully with sleep I wont fell it anymore. HOPEFULLY.
