I'm thinking...

Holy Smokes two posts in one week!! I am on a roll

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately...I know SHOCKING!

Anyways I have realized that I am pretty self absorbed in my life right now. That may sound bad which in some ways it is but in other ways it could be a good thing.

I was thinking about the events taking place around the world and how I have taken so many things for granite. I complain about not having my own house but at least I have a home. I complain about not making as much money as I think my family needs at this point but at least I have a job and I am making money. I complain about people that are driving me crazy but at least I know that they are alive, where they are and that I still love them. I complain about not having worldly processions but at least I still have possessions. I complain about how much doctor bills are but at least I have my health and a doctor to see. I am not necessarily relating this to the situation in Haiti but just to the world in general. There are people who have less than I do at this point in time and yet I still complain.

I think once in a while it is a good thing to take a step back and count your blessings.

With that said I am still frustrated and stressed out about our current living situation and they way things are going. But I am still thankful for what I do have.

P.S. I have posted a tutorial on how to make a cute little post-it holder and pen on my other blog. It really is super easy but if you are confused let me know.

Nothing new

My poor little blog I feel like I have abandoned you :(

I really have no reason to have not updated except the fact that there is nothing new in life right now.

I really have a bad case of the Monday's today and I am not sure why. I am just really irritated with everything today, not to mention this 9:00 church thing is going to kill me. I am exhausted!

I am trying really hard to keep my other blog updated on a more regular basis but then this blog is being left in the dust. The sad thing is that I have not updated my new blog like I was hoping either. I just wanted to post a little something to let you know I am still alive. Hopefully there will be something more interesting to post soon.

New Blog

So the time has finally come.....
My new blog is up and running!! It is going to be slow starting at first and still needs a lot of work but it is up so that is a good start.

If you want to take a look it is
or you can click my button on the side. I am not really happy with the button but for now it works so it is good.
I hope you will look at my new blog and let me know where you think I can improve or what kind of stuff you would like to see. I am hoping to make this a daily posting blog, not always with craft or food but just what ever.

Well that is all for this post right now.

The Zombies are coming.....Are You Ready?

This was way too funny not to share. I was looking in the Granite Peaks Education Catalog that comes in the mail and I know you are all terrified about zombies and since the government doesn't have a plan in place we better take it upon our selves to be prepared for the attack. So I found it, the perfect class for such a situation........

Surviving a Zombie Invasion
Class Description
Zombies are invading neighborhoods all across the country but we can help you prepare for them. Our Zombie expert gives you the tools you need to protect yourself from these creeping disasters. Whether you're just starting to plan your defense or you already have some measures in place, you will not want to miss out on this opportunity. When the Zombies knock out your power or initiate devastating natural disasters, you'll be able to face them confidently and with the weapons you need to defeat them.
Wednesday, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM; 5 sessions starting January 13, 2010, ending February 10, 2010
Tuition: $39.00
Instructor: Instructor
Location: Skyline Campus Map

So if anyone would like to pay $39 bucks to make sure that you are prepared you can go to sign up.

I'm sorry I know there are people who take this seriously but I can't read this with out laughing. This is no joke you can totally take this class.

I hope this makes you smile on your Wednesday, because I think it just made my whole week. :)

Happy 2010!

Well it is a new year and that means a fresh start and new beginnings. I am looking forward to a new year and hopefully all of the new and good things it holds.

We had a great Christmas and New Year! Lots of family time and lots of visiting. ( pictures to hopefully come this week) I can't believe that the holiday season is already over but I am ready to start moving forward with a new year.

Since it is a new year I, like most of you, have made some resolutions and I think I will share some of them here so maybe I will remember what I have decided to accomplish this year.

* Get a house (hopefully this summer)
* Try to eat breakfast and lunch more regularly (sometimes I skip one of these meals not on purpose and yet I have gained weight???)
* Try to finish some of my many projects I have started
* Actually post something on my other blog, it has been ready for two months and yet no post
* Get my CNA so I can get into a nursing program, hopefully soon
* Help get Adam through school faster

I am sure this list will be ever growing but for now I think I will work on those because they will probably take all year!

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday and that you are as ready as I am to start this new year!
