The day after

I don't know what it is but I sure could not sit still yesterday. At the rate I am going, hopefully my house will be the cleanest it has ever been. I guess since I was already in the mood to throw things out (8 years of work stuff) that it just carried over at home. Sleep did not come easy either. At least I was up bright and early this morning.

Right now I am sitting at my old cube copying the files off of my computer. I am very happy that they let me do that. It was not too bad coming in here this morning. That is until the 2 people that I dislike the most on the team came into work. One is the person that basically hand-picked who stayed (basically the ones that have never stood up to her) and the other is someone that a bunch of us thought of as a friend until we realized that she was actually playing everyone against each other. Right now they are both whispering away. I just walked in on them and they were surprised to see me here. It did not help that one of them came in already bragging loudly on her phone about the whole situation.

I feel for my other co-workers as their jobs have now all gone to India. As for me. I don't know why I was let go. My stuff is not anything that can be outsourced. In fact there are only 2 people that can do what I do and I am one of them. Sadly, both of us were let go yesterday. So poor customers will not get any of their issues taken care of since no one knows how to fix them. From what I can tell the majority of the people were those that have worked here 8 years or more. I guess we were just too expensive to keep.

So....now my goal is to get as many doctor's appointments made before my insurance runs out. Thing is.....I don't have a doctor.

Thanks to all of you that posted comments on my last post. I really do appreciate it.

Now for some crafty content.

Not much scrapping being done around here lately but I did make another card. This one was for my Mom’s birthday which was last Saturday.

Supplies used:

Bazzil - cardstock
Quickutz - "Vixen"
American Crafts- ribbon
Making Memories - rub-on letters, jewel brad
Prima - velvet flowers

My Mind's Eye - heart
Colorbox Chalk ink - "Burnt Sienna"

….and I don’t know if I ever shared this layout on the blog or not. I did this layout last year. I have not scrapped yet this year. In fact, I think this is the last layout I did. I made it for my first ever attempt at a DT position. It was a contest that each challenge had less and less people participating. Well I never even made it past the first round. I did not think it bothered me but I have not scrapped since. Well I have tried to scrap but I have yet to finish a page. Hopefully, once work settles down a bit (here’s hoping) I will get my scrapping grove back.

Supplies used:

Basic Grey – Patterned paper “Blitzen”
American Crafts – letter stickers, brads
Bazzill – cardstock
Heidi Swapp – snowflakes, white paint
Computer font - Juice ITC

Thanks for looking.

This week has gone pretty well.

Well from what I remember it went well.

I have been so busy with work that I cannot even remember what I did yesterday. The days are such a blur. I may have been tired every night after work and have not read any personal email in quite awhile but I got so much accomplished at work this past week. That is a good thing. YAY! However, I ate tons of junk. That is a bad thing.

Now that it is Friday, I am exhausted and it is really hard to concentrate. I think my body has crashed from all the sugar I ate this past week. I am so happy I got so much completed though. I think changing my WeeMee buddy helped to boost my mood and productivity.

Seriously. I really do.

The only thing is…..it is a drug taking WeeMee.

My WeeMee has more excitement in it’s life than I do.

All short girl wants to know is…..where the heck do I get that darn red pill?

I need a new WeeMee

Life is not fair.

I thought I had created a cute WeeMee Buddy. Sweet and an Angel (just like me)

That is until my friend made one.

Then while we watched hers got picked up by a limo and a helicopter.

All mine did was get pooped on by a bird. I think that is pretty much indicative of how last week went.

I think it is time to make some changes for this week (and not just for my WeeMee Buddy).

A "fairy" sweet package

I have always loved to send cards or letters to my friends. I have not done it as often as I used to and I miss it. One of my resolutions for this year is to cultivate the relationships I already have and I also hope to make new ones.

So, this past month I decided to join in on the SOSF (Valentine’s) parcel exchange. This event’s theme was “Handmade card & Chocolate.” (Isn’t that invitation gorgeous?) I love to pick out gifts for people although I do have a problem with worrying whether or not the recipient will like what I pick.

Well the fairy that sent me my package sure does not have to worry about whether or not I like MY package - 'cause I do! It was so exciting to open the box and look inside. (Sorry ~ due to my excitement of going thru the box, the lighting on these photos is not too great).

My new friend sent me some yummy chocolate in a cute red heart box (not even B got me one of those).

I also got some scrapbooking items that included some really cute iron-on bling. I have not seen this before and I just love it! I just need to pick out a shirt so I can brag about being the "Scrapbooking Queen!" :)

I also got a purr-fect (LOL!) kitty bowl and magnet. It really is a cute bowl.

And lastly….what I really loved was the handmade picture. How precious is that?

Thank you Amy for being such a great “fairy” friend. :)

Monday was…

…my birthday.

I took the day off from work and I can finally say that I was able to catch my breath. It was so nice.

I really didn’t do anything but I was finally able to catch up on my mail. I got my package from my secret fairy. I am so sorry secret fairy that I did not let you know when it arrived. In fact, I just opened the package tonight! Pictures coming soon! Just wait until you see what she sent me!

My mom cooked us a nice dinner. Very yummy. But all my mom’s food is yummy! We had steak, baked potato, calbasitas (squash) and my mom’s homemade tortillas. Then we had rice pudding for dessert. YUM!

I went back to work today. My cubicle was decorated and my co-workers got me a cake. Even though I played hooky on my birthday, they still got me a cake. Of course I don’t think they need an excuse to buy a cake. LOL! ;) The only bad thing about today was coming into work and having over 1,000 cases waiting for me!

Yep! I said 1,000+! I sure am going to be busy for a very very very long time.

Tonight is UGLY & GREY!

I must say that I was pretty happy with the way LOST turned out last night. Although a lot of what happened was kind of predictable. I am looking forward to seeing OTHER characters (NOT the OTHERS) next week though.

One thing that irks me about the show is that I just want to be able to watch the show and not have my mind guessing at things all the time. I get tired trying to figure out if everything little thing was a clue or not.

I guess that is why I like Thursday nights.

Tonight is THE night for Television.

'Cause it is the "no thinking so much my brain hurts" kind of TV.

Even though I love Ugly Betty and Grey’s Anatomy I always seem to be doing stuff while it is on. I never seem to be able to sit still. I think it is because B watches his Smallville downstairs and I am upstairs on the not so good TV and it is just not so comfortable up there. But since we only have cable downstairs he gets to watch his show on the main TV.

Although…..I think that if it were the other way around, he would still be watching his show on the main TV and I would be out of luck.

Why is it that Women are always the ones that sacrifice for the darn man? Not that missing a TV show or two is a sacrifice but darn it! All these things add up!

Is it just me?

Tonight I will be LOST

Tonight it is all about LOST.

I am looking forward to the show starting again but I don’t have that same excitement I used to have about it. I really do hope that these new episodes get me back to loving the show like I used to.

Am I the only one that feels this way?

Last week was not so good

I am so happy last week is over.

I lost my driver’s license and debit card on Tuesday. Talk about a mess. I have been without my debit card before but came to realize just how much a driver’s license is used now-a-days.

So without access to any money, I was not able to buy anything this weekend. I was not able to go to the post office to mail off these packages I have sitting here. I could not even use my credit cards as ID is required to use them (talk about embarrasing when I had nothing to show the gal this weekend). I was not even able to buy medicine as due to the law – a driver’s license is required to purchase.

On top of that I have been having sinus issues all week so I have not been a happy camper.

But you see….today is Monday and even though Monday’s are not supposed to be good – this one is.

I found my debit card and license today!

So even though I still have the sinus headache from this weekend, I can now go and purchase something to help. I can also get to the post office and buy bread. LOL!

This is a good day. :)

Well…. as long as I don’t think about how behind I am at work!
