Will post later with pictures and updates! Off to work the fluoride program at school and tell one of the teachers she has to pick out a new fabric for her tote. We ran out on her bag. opps...my first blunder with Elisalou. FIRST! in 5 1/2 months. Not bad!
Be back later!

We got ice then snow through the night last night at about 12:30am, Zander got sick all over the bathroom floor. UGH...He had been complaining that his stomach hurt all night. Made him take "the bucket" to bed. Well he said he thought he could make it to the bathroom. Indeed he did but not to the right spot.
Seems like every time we are going someplace, some on is sick or the weather is not what we need. This time we get both. Zander did say he feels great now?! So let's hope it was just nerves. Unfortunately, my son has my anxiety problem so he can easily work himself up to that point just like me. We are a sure to be a drug manufactures dream come true. One for anxiety, one for depression, one for thyroid, one for acid reflux, one for insomnia, and probably someday, cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. Gosh, what a Rosy picture! LOL We have all that in the family so it will have to come true at some point, right?
Off to walk! I will fight it as much as I can now. well, actually it's off to pack. We are leaving at noon. I will swim it all off today!

I just want Shell to know that as of this weekend, I promise to make an effort to MOVE more! Oh my goodness....We had to walk about 6 blocks to catch a bus then we walked the whole area at McCormick Place from one end to the other on several several occasions in one day. Plus we walked to every place we went for dinner in the evenings...again...UGH....and OOOOUUUUCCCCHHHHH. My whole body aches. UNFIT...Sad, but true.
Wendy, I move the slide.com thingie so you could tell when posted a new entry! LOL
Jan, Hope you are feeling better.
Debbie, didn't get your email until I was HOME from Chicago...sorry I never called.
And to my MM friends...I have to assume without having read any emails...that NO ONE has heard a thing? SAD....
To my shins, knees, hips, butt, back, and feet...I promise to take better care of you in the months ahead. I will not allow you the chance to feel such pain again. I will move more! I will not be UNFIT any more. I will make an effort to be FIT!
Off to pack for my next trip! Kalahari water park, here we come!!

Am I the only one who has this issue? I let my son eat in here and obviously it doesn't make it all in his mouth. I am sure I am guilty of some of the crumbs too. I have been known to eat a meal or two while working on the computer. I really need a new computer. Just waiting for the money to hit the account from Uncle Sam. I really think we are leaning towards a dell this time around. My mom has one and they really like it. But I have always had gateway and never had a problem really either...what to do, what to do.
Off to drop of the youngest so I can head out. Of course, my poor stomach is in knots. Not sure why? Guess I am a little nervous about leaving for some reason? I haven't had that problem in a long time. odd? Usually I can't wait to leave! LOL

So anywho...CHEERS to my 100 th post! How do I ever find enough to write about? And why do I bother?!
I had someone ask me the other day if it bothered me having others looking to my life. I got a chuckle out of it. If they want to take the time to read my boring life, then I can not be responsible for their death when they die of boredom. Nope it doesn't bother me at all. I have nothing to hide and nothing posted will ever come back to haunt me! I mean what I say and say what I mean.
That said..."The owners of Maddy Moo Creations are among the world's worst people at running a business." QUOTE/UNQUOTE
I can't believe the $$$ that they still owe consultants. I just sit back and shake my head and count my blessings for getting out when I did. For once, something worked in my favor. Sure I lost money, but nothing compared to some. One of my newest friends, is owed near $1K still. I can't even imagine...glad I don't have too.
So...how about those Elisa Lou bags! My dear friend Wendy got hers today in the mail! I wonder if she got the 'brown paper bag wrapping' I sent it in?! It was in reference to my latest eBay scandal. Someone had emailed me to ask if I would ship the porn in brown paper bag. So....I mailed Wendys bag out to her all wrapped up in a brown paper bag! I figured she would get it! I hope she did! I laughed the whole time I was wrapping it up! I hope I finally got that eBay mess figured out.
I leave tomorrow for Chicago. Not near ready. Nothing packed. No clue what I am wearing. Still not packed for Kalahari either. UGH...I hate to pack. Never sure if I am taking enough, too much, or what. I guess as long as I have clean undies and socks it all works out! LOL

I have always owned Gateways. BUT...I have heard many people say DELL is the way to go. "Dude, you're gettin' a Dell." I just love saying that...
So I want to take a poll.
Tell me which one and why.

Just a crowd shot. It was packed to the gills. We had to give up the "wenches" table so that guests could use it. We ran out of room. These are all the cast members. Plus we had 9 "wenches" to serve!
This is all I can upload tonight. It was so awesome! The Daily Telegram showed up and took pictures too! (a local newspaper) The actors got a standing ovation at the end too. It was such an incredible night! I can begin to tell you how neat it was and the decor was perfect. The fine details didn't go unnoticed. I would do it again in a heart beat!

I saw this really cute kid laying out in the snow! At least all the snow was WHITE in the area he was laying! The dogs hadn't been in that area yet!! Love his hat! GO LIONS! We really are over due for win you know. This next year has to prove to be "the" year for the Detroit Lions. RIGHT? Well, I need to get my things ready for the play! I am really excited about it! I can't wait to see how well the public enjoys the event.

We have a bag pipe player coming in for tomorow night. He was there tonight warming up the pipes. I just love listening to bag pipes. I can't wait for tomorrow night! It is going to be sooo fun! We have 106 people registered! At $30/head! YEAH! We are hoping to make this the most profitable fundraiser ever! It makes me proud to be apart of something so giving. My MIL & FIL have put a ton of time, energy, money into this event. And it is so awesome that we are all doing it together! We just added my oldest son as a cast member. He is going to play the black knight. He will introduce the Queen and dismiss the "killer" once we solve the crime! He is so excited to be apart of this event too. He has been asking for past week to please get a part in it. So we figured out something for him to do to make him happy. I am so proud of him for wanting to be a part of this too. I just hope he will follow thru with it once he sees ALL the guests! 212 eyes all on him?! And he will be the first person to speak!

I have the play this weekend which means I have to set up for it tomorrow and do the last minute running around. oh, just realised, I didn't make that post. Let me step backwards. Our Library Board is putting a murder mystery dinner event as a fundraiser for the Library. Josh has a part in it and I am a "bar wench" (insert, "server"). So we have been doing rehearsals for the past month on Sundays and now it is coming down to doing them nightly. Each night SOMEONE is missing so I have been a "under study" for those who are missing. I have NEVER done a play in my life and have no clue what I am doing. And believe it or not, I am actually very shy. At least when it comes to a situation like this! So it has been a trying few weeks. I just need to serve 100 people their food and drinks! I don't want to have lines to remember! I have this really low cut top I have to wear. And as many of you know, I am not lacking in the "girls" dept. So I can surely reveal a lot!! I will take pictures and post them later. We all have costumes that we are wearing and we have asked the guests to dress in period as well. All the food is done with the time period as well. We are having Germany Eggs, Turkey Legs served on a flat bread. No plates or utensils. The soup will be served in a bread bowl. Again, no spoons!! We are however, going to auction off a few spoons for those less adventurous soles. We have 100 people paid and most of the food was donated or sold at cost to us! So we will hopefully raise a good lump for the Library! I am really excited to see it happen! Again, I will take lots of pictures!
Wish me luck! Let's hope I don't spill anything on anyone or myself!

WOW...I love our rub-ons. They go on so smooth and easy. I could easily go over board with them. I just want to keep adding and adding just because I like how they go on. I tried to take a very flowery layout and use for my sons. I hope I pulled it off? Used a little of the sample on the idea sheet by cutting out the flower from the print paper. But the rest is just me whipping something together.

Anyways, it's all solved as far as we can tell. Man, what a nerve racking event. I swear it was so upsetting to know that happened to us. I am scared to death to go on to Ebay right now. I think I will just keep stalking ElisaLou and TwoPeas. wow.
Wednesday, February 7, 2007
This is MINE!!! I told her to surprise me. I have a few suggestions on what fabrics I liked and this is what she did for me! LOVE IT! My razr will look adorable in this!
This one is for my dear friend and ex secret sister, Wendy! I think she will love it! Now I have to help her pick out fabric for a messenger bag!
What are we going to do??? We have already contacted ebay directly thru the email system. I think I will have him call his CC Company tomorrow and report possible fraud, misuse. UGH...
I can't believe this. Why us? Grrr....

I have my little cousin today for awhile. I am working this afternoon for the other hygienist. So Josh is going to come home early and be with the kids while I go to work. My mom was going to watch them for me but Josh said he really needs to take some time off. So he's coming home. He is not going to happy with me, either. I let our outside cat in last night. It was just too cold. I didn't have the heart to leave him out. Josh built him a nice insulated house but still...-20 wind chill is too cold for anyone.

So for all you football fans out there, who's your pick?
I have family in Indy so you know who I am going with as my pick. I never ever thought I would say that for a superbowl game. Now...COME ON LIONS! Next year has to be the year. Colts were just as bad or worse than us...and look at them now. So I am still holding to hope. Yes, I am die hard fan. Even when we suck, I still have to go with Detroit. No fair weather fan here! You can thank my Grandpa Bill for that. When you believe in something or someone you have to believe with all of your heart or it's not worth believing. Hence my intense dislike of those buckeyes! LOL Sorry Uncle Bill! That is another thing my Grandpa taught me...Ohio stinks! LOL
Well, I need to run thru my check list one last time to make sure I have everything for this weekend. Then go to the bank to get change/cash. Plus cash my checks from last weekends crop! LOL Oh, and the ElisaLou show and my TLC commission check. That TLC check MIGHT fill my van for the trip...oh wait...maybe not. Gas is back up to $2.19 here. So I don't think it will, darn...Can't buy much with $30 dollars these days. Bummer. 5% of nothing is hard to take! LOL Maybe the new runway products will spark some interest for us?
Have a great weekend all. I don't think I will have internet at this place. I will post an update on Sunday.

I am supposed to be getting ready for my weekend retreat. I have most of my TLC Stuff packed up already. I just need to make some signs and sort my Scrapbook Girl stuff that came today. Plus get stuff ready for ElisaLou. I am going to take my bags and just have the fabrics there for those who might want to look! It's women and purses...how could they not want to LOOK?
