Its all about albums this year...

I had a blast this weekend at the CK Bellevue scrapbook convention.
Im quite bummed I missed meeting Cathy Z. I was really hoping she was going to teach one of the classes I signed up for, but no... :-(
I did make some really cool little albums this year. It seems like almost every class I took this year was an album class of some sort - tag album, an all about me album, simple accordian album, matchbook album...now I just need to pop in the pictures and I made 4 albums last weekend. whoohooo. Of course picking out the pictures that fit in those tiny little albums will be the problem. I'll post them tonight when I get home (without the pics of course)
So Sunday I spent just catching up on sleep. Thankfully it was daylight savings time so I gained an hour...didn't feel like it to me though.
Today is halloween and Im hoping we get some trick or treaters tonight. I took some pics at work today of some of the goofballs I work with. The funniest one was a guy who dressed up as the Office Max guy and had a boom box playing the rubber band man song while he danced through all the departments passing out pencils...so funny!
Hope everyone has a spooky halloween!

Conor


On Saturday evening my nephew Conor came to hang out for the evening with Paul and I. His parents were going to some kind of dinner with Scotts new company.

I think its so cool that he thinks we're fun enough to spend the evening with. Usually 13 year olds would want to stay at home or go visit with friends. Hes such a great kid.
We watched the new Batman movie and ordered some Pizza. Paul bought some Mike & Ikes for them to share. Cant watch a movie with out them :-)
He and Paul have been buddies forever. They have a special relationship that has always been close. I think Conor would rather hang out with Paul than just about anyone.
I hope that never changes.

Auntie Reana

Another week has gone by and I haven't updated my blog...no special reason. I guess I just feel like I don't have any profound thoughts to throw out to the universe. Been busy, soooo sooo busy. At least Im getting some layouts done. Im loving the two I got done last week.

I went to visit my parents last weekend and my great aunt was visiting. What an absolute sweetheart she is. The woman is a jewel.
Shes just so happy she makes you happy to be around her.
You guessed that she's probably wearing a wig huh?
She always has. I have no idea why but Im thinking she needs to get one that has a little grey in it...:-)
It doesn't matter though, it makes her happy and I just love her.
She's loosing her short term memory, but she says she's happy anyway. She may not remember everything that happened the day before, but she knows she had a nice time and thats all that matters. So cool.
It was so sweet to see is how my Mom loved seeing her. They've been friends forever and I think my Mom sort of thinks of her as a Mother figure. They held hands and joked back and forth all afternoon. Aren't they the sweetest?
My Uncle Herb passed away last year. Reana moved to an assisted living place. She's got her bags packed though and anyone who wants to take her on a trip, she's ready to go. God love her!

fresh bread

I stayed home from work today to take the dog to get his teeth cleaned.
they had to pull one and the dr. wants to keep him overnight to keep an eye on the bleeding so Im gonna miss my little guy tonight :-( Mochi is missing him too.
While I was home today I was a little productive. Made some bread and a big pot of stew.... nothing makes a house smell better than baking bread. Too bad this isn't a scratch and sniff monitor...oh yeah!!!!

Not much going on recently.
Im working on a christmas project, but am not going to share it here just in case...don't want to risk ruining the surprise. Not that anyone from my family (or anywhere else for that matter) reads this blog. Just don't want to jinx it.
Came across this cool stuff at Bath and body works
Molton Brown Warming Eucalyptus Bath & Shower Therapy- the discription says its bursting with pure Australian eucalyptus, this uniquely protective steam tonic eases aches, fatigue, and dry and tired skin. Add this to your bath or shower and let the therapy begin. Warms muscles Lifts the spirits, revives the senses Eases cold and flu symptoms
Sounds refreshing but who is Molton Brown anyway? I get the worst dry skin during the winter months so this would probably be good for that, but what is tired skin? Im sure mine must be tired, the rest of my body is so it makes sense that my skin is too... Let the healing and lifting of spirits begin!!!
They have an offer running now that if you spend $10. you get their new lip gloss free. I read on another blog (was it Heathers?) that it was good stuff so Im going to have to try it out. Im such a sucker for lip gloss anyway.
Have to take the dog to the vet tomorrow to have his few remaining teeth pulled. He's been on antibiotics so I think he's starting to feel better. Now to get those dang rotten teeth out of his mouth. Its all because of that cute little tongue hanging out of his mouth. Makes for bad teeth :-( I swear I've spent a small fortune on that dog...ah well. what can I do...Notha I love that face :-)

I had to start using the word verification function because Im getting tired of the spam comments on my blog. I hate that I have to do that. It stinks, but so be it...

seems like I've been gone from my blog for weeks, but its just been since last thursday.
so much is going on, yet none of it is worth blogging about.
We'll except one, no two things.
I've always heard that when someone dies, the ugliness comes out in people who knew that person. Someone's always got to be ticked off about something that they feel they were horribly wronged over. I couldn't imagine that anyone would be ticked off when Justin passed away. Why would they? Oh contraire!!! Wouldn't you know it some one is pissed that they weren't named in the obituary. Seems they feel it was done on purpose to exclude them. Doesn't matter that only Justins wife, child Mom, Dad and siblings were named. This person feels that Uncles and grandparents should have been named and this was a direct slam on behalf of the family to exclude them personaly. What the heck is up with people anyway? BTW, this so called greiving relative couldn't be bothered to call Justin when he was so sick, attend the funeral, call to send condolences, or buy a freakin' hallmark card... It amazes me!
It amazes me so much that I've all but forgotten the second thing worth blogging about. Oh well
