Here I go...

I got my Warlock to lvl 80 before Hallows End got here! Gooooaaaaal! Man if the rest of my life was a game that dropped loots maybe I could actually get some shit done.

So yeah. I've lost 7 pounds so far. I'm looking forward to my Epic wardrobe when I complete this goal.

Now I've got to get this pig sty of a house cleaned up. It's almost noon and I haven't done anything yet. I should probably get going on that, eh? Oh hey, I cleaned out about 8 gigs of crap on my slave drive. That' counts, right?

FINE, I'm going. Kitchen first...

My skill in Getting Up Off Your Ass has increased by 1.

I'm such a slacker

I've been meaning to do this forever...

Seriously, I can't find anything in that jumbled mess. Also, I'm out of a ton of spices and I need to take some kind of inventory.

Well that's better. And now I know what I need to buy more of.

So Sweet

For the Frameworthy Challenge at Scrapbook Graphics

Kit used: For Mellisa by Flergs.
Man I freaking LOVE this kit. lol It's perfect!! It's bold without hurting my eyes, it's soft without being shabby and ... if she made add ons for it I would buy every stinking one! lol Totally my favorite kit so far (and I've got a lot of kits). I would scrap every single thing with this if I could.

Well this is pretty accurate considering my oldest daughter has a name that was popular in the early 1900's for French males - Jules

And my youngest daughter's name is Lydia. I also liked the name Olivia but that is gaining rapid popularity and I do NOT want my kids to be another Jennifer. It sucks having numbers tacked on to the end of your name.

I also didn't want to name my children by grabbing 5-7 scrabble tiles out of the Crown Royal bag. So yeah...

You Like Names that Are Retro and Fashionable

You like names that are from the past but becoming modern again.

Names with a strong history are very appealing to you.

You're a big believer in giving children very adult sounding names.

You're not a fan of nicknames or newfangled spellings.

Some female names you might like: Audrey, Emma, Fiona, Georgia, Isabelle, Naomi, Rosemary, and Veronica

Some male names you might like: Brendan, Colin, Ethan, Jared, Kenneth, Martin, and Nathaniel

Saturday 9

1. If you have been or are married, tell us about your wedding. If you are not, tell us how would you want it to be.
~ Kent and I got married in our living room wearing our PJ's because we stayed up too late drinking the night before.

2. What age would you encourage your children to get married?
~ Uh, when they are ready to? Hopefully after college.

3. Who got married at the last wedding that you attended?
~Um I think the last wedding I went to was Steve and Myra's.

4. Do you enjoy weddings and receptions?
~Sure, as long as I don't have to give any kind of speech.

5. Have you cried at a wedding?
~ Yes. Lisa and Christine's weddings were a snot fest for me.

6. Would you prefer a lavish event or a intimate ceremony?
~ Seeing as how I got married in a pair of Trix man-pants, I'm forced to pick "intimate"

7. Have you ever been in some one’s wedding party? If yes, do tell.
~ A bridesmaid twice (Halee and Lisa's), matron of honor once (Christine's). I've got enough ugly bridesmaid dresses to last a lifetime

8. Does a wedding make you happy and sentimental or grouchy and skeptical?
~ Aww, it's a happy time.

9. Why do you think our divorce rate is so high?
~ Oh I don't know. There's a fine line between love and hate. It's not exactly a black and white question. Many things factor into a relationship. But why do people have to stay with one partner their whole life anyway? If you're unhappy move on for pete's sake.

I love you this much

I was up late last night clicking refresh on the Sweet Shoppe new release page waiting to buy Libby's new stitches and Traci's new kit (which are both so freaking fabulous I could die). After I downloaded them of course I had to "play around". So I finally went to bed at 3am >< half way through this layout.

This morning I was supposed to be finishing up the menu/grocery list for the week but, uh, yeah. I had to finish this first, ya know. Who can think about food when there are ribbons to be shadowed?!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to more scrappin', tomorrow my plans include grocery shoppins and Sunday, I want to do the same thing I do everyday, Pinky!

This messy house

I realized today that messes really tick me off. And if you look over to the right where it says "About Me" I have that strange jumbled mess that describes me. Messy. That is certainly me. I'm a fantastical wreck. Clutter makes me anxious and crabby. It only took me 31 years to figure that out. Figured I'd share my discovery with the world.
