Vacation time!

We leave for our Alaskan cruise Thursday! I cannot wait. A lot has happened here & we are in need of some time away, so this came at a perfect time! We are going with Tim's dad & Maureena. I just checked out the weather and it's going to rain! :( So, gonna have to pack my umbrella. We plan on going whale watching & we are taking a train ride into the mountains.We will have about a day on our way to the ship to spend in Seattle & a day when we get back so we are taking full advantage of that too. I have heard Seattle is a great city. We have to be there anyway, so why not check out the sights. We must go to the fish market, so I am told! I hope we can catch a fish! Will post when we return! (unless we decide to stay!) ;)

I did it

Well, I finally took the plunge & tried out for 2 design teams. I am so excited, and really hope I make it. It would be a dream come true!! I was also offered to teach a card class at a scrap/stamp store about 50 miles from home. I talked to the store owner last week & am just waiting for the e-mail to finalize things. If she agrees to my prices, etc I will have my 1st class on May 2nd! I made 12 cards this weekend plus some little bunny baskets for the girls at work. I still managed to cook dinner, do dishes & laundry! And, yesterday my parents & sister came down. The guys went golfing while we shopped. Well, we really spent 3 hours looking for my keys because I lost them at the mall! :( I got a phone call at dinner from the mall security, and they found my keys! YEAH! I don't ever lose things, so this in unusual for me. We couldn't get in the house or anything so we went back to the mall & kept looking for them until the guys got home. We then went to dinner at The Yard - my mom & dad love that place! (so do we) We then went grocery shopping. I bought my very first ham! Yep, we are having Easter at our house. We might have around 15 people. I am a horrible cook so this should be fun!!!

WOW I am a slacker!

WOW, I can't believe I haven't posted since last Nov! I am a bad blogger! LOL This weekend I am working from home so I am on the computer a lot so thought I better update. We are going on an Alaskan cruise at the end of June with Tim & Maureena. I am so excited. I am really looking forward to seeing all the wildlife & the glaciers! I hear it is just beautiful. We just need to buy our airfare and we are ready.
We are doing fine, just busy. I spend a lot of time on the road for work - it makes me so tired! I hate driving anymore! Since Tim bought the Equinox my car sits in the garage the whole weekend! Tim is going back to Sandusky at the end of this month to work at Nasa again, he is not looking forward to it.
I have been making a lot of cards, and just last weekend I finally started to scrapbook our cruise - I have 7 pages done (took me 10 hours). I never finished Vegas but I got tired of looking at the same thing so switched it up. Thought I better start on our last cruise before we go on another. LOL I would still love to be on a stamp company's design team. I am into card making much more than scrapbooking now. It used to be the other way around. I do sell my cards but not very often, and mostly to the girls at work. I just made a cool thank you card for one of the girls to give her aunt. She loved it, and it turned out so cute.
I will try to do a better job at keeping this updated!!!

It's been a while!!

I haven't posted for a long time, I know! Can you believe it is almost December!!! And, Christmas is right around the corner then it will be 2009! Time flies! We are going to Tim & Maureena's for Thanksgiving and my parents are also going with us. It will be nice not to travel from morning til night like we usually do! That always makes me more tired and like I need another day off just to re-cooperate! I have to work 1/2 day on Friday so I chose to work the middle shift so I can SHOP! I am sure black Friday will be very hectic, they are predicting busier than normal due to the poor economy. Funny how poorly the economy is doing yet my company had a record sales year - and it's only the end of Nov. I guess I am lucky!
Are you ready for Christmas? I usually have all my shopping just about done by now but I still have a few people left to buy for. Some people are so hard, especially Tim's dad. I keep telling him I am buying him a tie for our Alaskan cruise. He doesn't think it's funny. The Sandy Valley craft show is this weekend so I am going to that on Saturday. I just talked to my friend & she wants Tim & I to go to a local place that is having a live band, that should be fun.
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Yep, he is 30 today....he thinks the world is ending! LOL He is telling everyone he is 29 and now goes backwards from there. I am having sloppy joes and a cornhole tournament for him today, just something small. It's not a surprise because I couldn't do that and still have it here at the house. Our friends and family are coming, and the weather is supposed to be decent so it should turnout well. He is getting a tattoo - those who know him know he is deathly afraid of needles, so this should be GOOD! HA I told him his life insurance is all paid up....LOL I know he will pass out, he passes out when they give him a shot of novacaine at the dentist. What is he thinking! Everyone please send him an e-mail about how over the hill he is! When I ordered the cake I told the lady something over the hill & she said you call 30 over the hill....I said he thinks it is....!!! She thought I was crazy. I have been teasing him all morning that I am going to trade him in for a younger husband! LOL This should be a fun day. My sister turned 30 in July so I know she is really going to give him a hard time as he did her.

motorcyle trip

Our trip through the mountains of WV & VA was this past weekend. There were 10 bikes total. It ended up raining pretty much the whole time. The sun finally came out yesterday for about 2 hours once we were almost to Ohio. (of course!) I wasn't really cold, I had on plenty of layers! We wore our rain suits almost the whole time so we didn't get wet either. The 1st day we rode to Covington, VA where we spent the night at the Holiday Inn Express. We walked down the hill to dinner at a little place called Belly Up. The food was pretty good, cheap too. After dinner Roger went and bought tons of beer, wine, & chips. He came to our door w/ the biggest box full of stuff, it was so funny. He even got plastic cups! For those who do not know Roger, he is a guy that we met on our cruise. He lives in Richmond, VA. He drove to OH to meet us to drive back to VA. He had to work Sunday so he drove straight home from the hotel. Mod went with us on this trip last year, so I really missed him this year! It just wasn't the same. I could have done without the rain too. Last year it was 85 & sunny and we went a week later even. You just never know about the weather. My whole body hurts right now, I think I am going to take some ibuprofin before bed.
