Big Gripe!

Okay. My husband is driving me crazy. He has ticked me off all day today. It is just the little things but they are really getting to me. Like why does every other word have to be F***??? I am so tired of that! We went grocery shopping tonight and he is just griping about everything but then turns it around and makes it sound like I am doing the griping. For instance, I am checking out a label. He complains that I am taking too much time. So I put the item back and he complains that I did. I told him if I cannot check the label, I am not going to buy it. Then as I am walking down the aisle, I come across an empty cart. I go to move it out of the way as it is in front of what I want to look at. He then pulls our cart further down and comments that I don't have to have the cart next to me all the time. What the heck does that mean? I am the one pushing the darn thing. Does he expect me to just leave it there? And why is it he cannot just buy 'regular' food for 'regular' meals? Why does he have to make the gourmet crap all the time? I mean, I loaded our cart with tons of stuff that can be eaten for all meals but he only had his mind on making peach French toast and he put tons of stuff in the cart ONLY for that one meal. And get this.....he did not even find the bread he needs. I hope he realizes he will be the only one eating this meal. He gets mad that I don't cook but when I do cook, he complains that meals are not fancy. Ok. I take that back. It is not complaining about the food not being fancy. It is his comments on how I could have made it more 'his' way. Argh!!! He will not even let me plan a menu because that means he will not get to cook. Oh and planning a few days a week for him to cook never work either as he is never in the mood. He would not even let me put his frozen pizza in the oven tonight because he wanted to make all the pieces 'perfect'!

Okay. I am sure you are tired of reading this and I don't want to think of more things that upset me right now as I think I am making it worse. I think my gripe has gone on long enough. Thanks for reading. Now back to all the pretty stuff that belongs on my blog.

Blogger will not let me post

I am here. I have been trying to post but Blogger will not let me. All I get is a box that allows me to type plain text. All my HTML formatting options are gone so I am sorry to say that I cannot post my recent layouts as I planned to do today. So....that being said....I am off to scrap.

LO: My mom, my mentor

I always buy Chatterbox paper but I never can figure out how to use it on a page. I have attempted once before and it turned out okay but I also purchased the matching tags.

I was excited that I purchased this paper and actually used it in the same week. Know that I know the Secret of the Chatterbox. Each sheet has its own color code on the side. So I used those colors on this page (doh!).

These pictures are from 2003 and I have been trying to find the right colors in order to scrap them.

Thanks for looking.

Layout is 8.5 x 11

Supplies used:

Chatterbox patterned paper
Cardstock – Bazzill
Paper flowers – Making Memories
Buttons – SEI
Letter stickers
Rub-ons – Making Memories
Tag template from ScrapPagerz

Time passes so quickly

Beware of Evil Ducky! He will get you!

Don’t be fooled by his quiet and gentle sister either. She has a brain working behind that Anna-lisa smile and one of these day she will let loose! Being the only girl in a family of 4 boys means she has everyone twisted around her little finger. Boy she has it made. Well until she wants to date that is. My brother is just now sharing her with others. I tease him that he needs to put her down sometime!

What a difference one year makes. They sure do grow fast. Now if I can only get caught up and scrap some cute twin layouts. I have yet to scrap any pages with these two. I am such a bad Auntie.

a post...

Things have been pretty quiet around the ole blog lately. Sorry about that.

Last Friday, I met some friends to scrap. I again amazed myself with completing 2 whole pages! I think it has to do with the company I keep. A and R you are both a great inspiration to me. I really do need to scan them and share. Soon, very soon.

Work has been busy and I am in the mood not to be here. Maybe because today I feel a sore throat coming on. I don’t want to be sick and I don’t like that fact that I may be getting sick. I think I know who to blame that on. Thanks a lot Happay Mommay!! (although Crazy Mama may have had something to do with it too).

Now I need to go and take a yarn test so that the Happay Mommay won’t yell at me. LOL! Be back soon with the results.

I have decided it is about time to start using my Ipod shuffle. I still have not taken it out of the box as I don’t have Windows XP at home and will have to do it at work. I have come across a few songs lately that I think I will have to add. One is “Tired of Being Sorry” by Ringside. I love this song and can listen to it all day. I went to their website and was surprised to find this song started playing right away (the entire song too – not the chopped versions they seem to play on the local radio stations). I even downloaded the mp3. There is also another song that plays on their website “Strangerman” that it also good. I think I may be buying the entire album very soon. I wonder how much I can play the songs from their website before it drives my co-workers crazy.

Another song that I have heard recently that I like is “Dirty Little Secret” by All-American Rejects. Can someone say “gorgeous blue eyes”? I have rarely seen that shade of blue on a man before (and I go ga-ga every time I do). I came across the end of the video the other night and in front of DH said “he (the lead singer) sure does have the most gorgeous blue eyes” Oops. DH had no comment. LOL! It is good looking guys like this that make me feel old!

Go Me!

I am happy to say that I got some scrapping done this weekend!!!! Whoo hoo!!! For the first time ever I finished a layout COMPLETELY while at a crop. I usually will work on a page and then have to finish it up with something at home. I am such a slow scrapper. I sure wish I could scrap more than one page a night. I will post my recent layouts soon.

Well I need to leave for the in-laws in 15 minutes and I am NOT dressed. I guess I better get my butt in gear!
