Well, it happened again

Someone spammed my blog. BLUCK!!! So, I'm gonna try that annoying letters thing. I don't want to moderate the comments since I don't get back here hourly, plus, no one but spammers have commented for days.

I did 2 great cards at the SU party yesterday. Plus 3 felted eggs. I'll post tomorrow along w/my Getting to Know you ARCs for Angie's swap.

Nothing done again today!!

Dh came home from Dallas today. He got into the van crabby & tells me he thinks he's getting the flu!! ACK -- Go back to Dallas then!

I left my house this morning at 7:20am. Drove ds to school, picked up dd's bf & drove them to school, drove to my work, worked until 1:15, drove to pick up my friend, drove 15 miles to take her to a Culver's for her B'day (she's never been, LOVED it!), picked girls up on the way home, dropped friend off, dropped dd's bf off, picked up ds (who took the bus home from school, thank goodness!) and took him to Tae Kwondo, drove thru to get food, took food home to eat, left 20 minutes later, took dvd's back to McD's (redbox, hope y'all have these, they are AWESOME! $1 rental!) drove to airport, waited for dh's "on-time" flight for 30 minutes, got gas ($3.09 a gal in MO) and got home at about 8:45. I'm beat. Dh has fallen asleep ACROSS the bed, I didn't get to work on my swap stuff, laundry is not done & the house is not clean.

Tomorrow's another day: work, p/u dd from school (bf is on vacation w/her family before dad is shipped to Kosovo for a year!), go to SU party (4th in 6 weeks!) and maybe then I'll get to work on my swap stuff.

Sorry, still no pics

I've been bogged down w/the non-stamping side of life this week. I have been TRYING to get my 10 C'mas cards done for March (wanted to be EARLY this month) and I've been working on a Shack swap but my printer is NOT COOPERATING!!! I hate when my printer is illogical. If it's gonna screw up, screw up the NORMAL way that I know how to fix! Don't tell me your printing and/or deleting and don't do it!!!

Twice now I've gotten icky "comments" on my blog. If I get one more, I'm going to have to either put those annoying letter/number things in for y'all to type or have to go to moderated comments. I don't like either option but I don't want you (or me for that matter) to get a virus by reading my comments. Why is there so much evil in the world?? Kinda makes you wonder what God thought was so bad during Noah & Lot's times.

I have no pictures from Saturday :(

Can you believe that I didn't accomplish one thing on Sat?? I really, really intended to but, I mounted my new stamps, ate, showed them the cuttlebug and then I worked on Marge's St. Pat's cards. I guess I should have taken pics of them to show. Some were really cute!!

Yesterday, in case you didn't know (and unless you have a pre-teen or a video game significant other, you wouldn't have known) was Brawl Day! The most anticipated day, even better than Christmas according to my 11yo. It was the day that Super Smash Brothers Brawl came out for the Wii. I had purposely NOT pre-ordered it because, being an old mom, I didn't realize the significance of the day. I woke up fairly early (even after setting the clocks UP) and read this cartoon: (click on it to make it big enough to see. LOL) (Ok, that doesn't seem to work. here's a link to see the actual cartoon.)

That's when I started to panic. We had promised Nick this game at Christmas. But, the release was delayed. Then, it was delayed again. Nick woke up before 7am yesterday ('cause he was so dang excited) so I asked him if he wanted to run to the 24 hour Walmart to see if they had it in. Of course he did. We got to Walmart about 7:15 and NO ONE was there except employees. Nick RAN to the electronics dept but didn't see the game. I told him he needed to ask the employee. She opened the case and had only 4 left!!! So, we got ours!!! She said they sold a TON at midnight & had lines a mile long. As we were leaving, another guy came in looking for one. I guess that meant there were only 2 left.

Needless to say, I didn't see Nick all day yesterday. He refused to go to the airport with us. He came out briefly to annoy the cat and again to eat dinner and take a shower. He's very bummed that he has to go to school today. He thinks that Brawl day should be Brawl week.

Now that I've written a novel on it, makes me think I should get some pics of him & the game 'cause if I have this much journalling, I should have a scrapbook page of it, don't you think??
