No more ponytails....

I got my hair cut. :) I have a much shorter style now. The lady cut off 5 inches of hair. No more ponytails! :)

Saturday, my hubby and I went shopping. We went to Prince Frederick (small town only about 40 min away.) They have a great used bookstore there. I love the used bookstore. I never remember to get my books together to get a credit. I just keep buying more. We also went to Fashion Bug there. I was looking for a particular sweater. Instead of finding that sweater, I bought three new shirts that were on clearance. I just love clearance! :)

We also went to Lowe's this weekend. I have a shelf up in my utility room. I have been wanting one forever. Fred finally decided that he would put it up for me. I don't have to have all my laundry accoutrements on my dryer anymore. It makes it much easier to clean out the dryer filter!

The rest of the weekend was spent cleaning. The boys both got to leave the house to do fun things on Sunday. I was stuck home cleaning. :( I didn't even get any time for doing any crafts.

I bought some cool origami stuff on eBay today. I can't wait until it gets here! (Shhh... Don't tell the hubby!)

Not quite right...

Your Scholastic Strength Is Developing Ideas

You can take a spark of inspiration and turn it into a full fledged concept.

You are talented at brainstorming, visualizing, organizing, and independent thinking.

You should major in:

Natural sciences

Computer science

Creative writing




Wow! This is so far off from what I do, but I didn't see any questions that would have included busting your ass, breaking your back and receiving little to no recognition. I also didn't find the working on weekends and holidays... Oh well! :)

Computer science is the field most of my family is in. I know I'm good with computers, but I just had to be different. Maybe that's why I make so much less money than they do! :)

Mysterious but boring... LOL

What is your sexual appeal?
brought to you by Quizilla

This is interesting. I know I've been described as aloof. Maybe I was really mysterious and not aloof. :) Thanks cara-angelica for the really great quiz. So, my life has been pretty boring lately. No big new purchases like cara-angelica (too poor for that). No big new jobs like ppsassygrl. Not even the excitement of going back to school like sleepgrl25.

I've made quite a bit of progress on piecing together that crocheted afghan. Otherwise all I really do is go through Sudoku puzzles. I found a good book at BJ's this weekend and have been spending all my time doing those puzzles. They really really really are addicting!!!!!

I hope everyone's life is much more exciting than mine.

Trying to do better...

I'm trying to do better with posting. I still think my life is boring. :) I've been reading about dinner parties that cara_angelica and ppsassygrl throw. I had to go and ask exactly what a dinner party entails. I've never been to one. cara_angelica says that they are just having people come over and cooking dinner for them. In that case I have tons of dinner parties! :) Yay! I'm not missing anything! :) In fact, this weekend I had a breakfast party. I have those frequently as well. My family finds out that I'm cooking my husband's favorite breakfast on the weekend and they all descend upon my house. They are insistent that I make the best sausage gravy and biscuits ever. :) I needed some furniture moved this weekend, so I had a breakfast party so that my brother would be there to help move furniture and spare myself some heavy lifting. :) Slick, aren't I? My mom and my brother's gf, decided to clean my kitchen (spotless!) while they were there. :) Not too shabby, eh?

Fred's big dog made my brother's gf's daughter (wow! possessive hell!) fall down and knock out her tooth. (the tooth was already loose...) She was playing outside and he was chained out. He tripped her with his chain. Fred has a very sweet dog, he's just really big and not really smart. I'm sure he couldn't tell where his chain was. In my defense, I did tell her not to play in the yard when the dog is chained out. But, she's six and chose not to listen...

I'm off tomorrow. I plan on doing some relaxing... :) I finished watching Season 5 of Gilmore Girls. I'm looking forward to the new episode tonight (finally!!!) I have 4 squares left to do on the kaleidoscope afghan, then I just have to attach 48 squares together!

A really long time...

It's been a really long time since I updated... I know, I'm horrible. I love reading everyone's updates, but I'm not nice enough to update my own blog. I guess I just really feel that I have nothing to say. I feel like if I go on about my life, I'm going to bore you all...

Christmas was really nice. I got "Tru Calling." Fred got me season 1 and my mil got me season 2. I watched that over the break. It was a great show. Fred also got "South Park" seasons 2 and 3 for me. I also got the last season of "Friends" and season 5 of "Gilmore Girls." I also got some books on stained glass. I'm dying to learn how to do it and my only option around here is to learn from a book. :( Lastly, I got some clothes and some books and videos on working with polymer clay. I had a great Christmas.

Over the break, I got a quilt that I had been working on for several years done. I also finally started sewing Jesse's rag quilt. It's all made with flannels that he picked out. And I'm down to having 5 more squares to crochet for an afghan I've been working on for a really long time. I started it a tad bit after Fred and I were married. If work would give me more time at home, I could get more projects done. LOL I did manage to get 21 hours of comp time over the holiday. :)

I can't really think of much more news to share. I hope everyone had a great holiday. I hope everyone is in good health! :)
