congratulatoins on your first year zach!

First off, just wanted to say thank you for all your kind words about my pages. It was fun making some like that again. You guys are awesome! Sorry I've been absent of late.So, it may be April 1st but there's no foolin', Zach has been on his mission for one whole year as of today. I can't believe just how fast time has gone!

i guess–as my daughter put it–hell froze over

Look what we have in our house right now.  Yep. A kitty. Yeah, not in the plan. When we went to the farm, my nieces had gone up a couple days before. They went to Sears and some lady was giving away kittens. They thought that the farm needed some mousers and brought home three cats--one for one niece to keep, one for the other niece to "raise" at her house until it could go up to the farm and one for us--so we were told. Well, Dan isn't too keen on being told what to do--especially when it comes [...]

what’s old is new again

I'm a jewelry junky.I admit it.I've had a "serious" problem with it in the past, however, in the essence of saving money--or rather--not having the excess to spend like usual (lol), I've stayed away from the shopping malls, the boutiques, and the QVCs of the world.As an alternative, I'm pulling out earrings that I've had for a long time--favorites that haven't been worn for a while. I'm polishing them up and wearing them again. It's been a lot of fun! Some jewelry has a story--got this from Mexico, got that from Ireland, made three other pair of earrings 'just like [...]

i must be weird

So we actually have today off from work for Good Friday. Our parent company is based in California and this is a holiday they chose to allow their workers to take time off for. Having been working like crazy lately (never seems to stop, does it), I can't tell you how excited I am to have this day off . . . and I'm not even going to work on it either! lol And next week is spring break, my girls are out of school all week, I've taken a little bit of time off during the week, and I [...]
