I've been reading a lot of pretty interesting blogs. Some are linked from a really good blog called Grumbleeze. You can find a link to that blog above under Friends. Don't forget to click go! I often forget to do that, and sit and wonder why my computer is taking so long! WOW! Then I realize it is the computer in my brain that has slowed down for some reason! Oh well.
Dave had today off from work because they did not have the necessary supplies on the job site. Hopefully this problem will be taken care of by tomorrow. So... today we bonded! HAHAHA! Actually we went and got some wood. It was a good day, because the physical excercise felt good and I really do enjoy spending time with my husband. I think with my help I may have cut his work time in about half. We cooked a chicken on the grill for dinner tonight. Delicious!!! I was hoping to have leftovers for tomorrow, but no such luck!
Well, that's the update from around here! I hoped to run into some family on line tonight, but it doesn't look like that will happen. Catch ya all later!

Well! What do you know? Here I am, blogging again, on the very next day of my last post! WOW!!!
I had planned on coming on line earlier tonight, but I ended up watching a goofy movie with my hubby. We watched "Groundhog Day". It's one of those almost slapstick funny types of shows. I had heard about it a long time ago, and really I thought the premise was pretty stupid. I'm probably the only one who hadn't ever seen the movie before, but if you fall in the same group, the movie is about this weather guy who goes to the town in PA where the official groundhog lives to cover the report. The get snowed in town so he thinks he is staying an extra night, but everytime he wakes up.....it's still Feb2! The movie ends when he finally gets the day right. Anyway I started watching and got hooked! We had a couple of good laughs together! I love that about my hubby! We can still laugh together, and talk too. It is good! The only problem with watching it on TBS is the commercials! That last commercial break was 7 minutes long! And that didn't count the Dinner and a Movie part of the break! They took a 2 hour movie and stretched it out an extra 1/2 hour! Anyway, some of the commercials were pretty good too, so all was not wasted, plus the good time we had watching the show together. That's it for now!

Well, it is the end of a busy weekend. However, I'd say we have a great note to end it on! Melissa had her baby this evening. She is a little girl named KaitLynn and her birth weight is 7lb.4 oz. Melissa and baby are doing fine, in fact I guess they'll be coming home tomorrow! We are looking forward to pics and a visit! Hopefully we'll be able to get there sometime soon!

Hi! Yesterday I was accepted onto the "Blogs for Women" web ring. I'm #910! You can check out the web by going to the link on the side of my blog. It is in the blue area under my license plate. There are some really interesting blogs that come up when you hit the random button, but I would not recommend all of them. Anyway, if you have some time to kill (HAHAHA), That could do it for you!
Well, I made a big decision last week about church. My niece asked me to sponsor her for confirmation and her church does a pretty good check of the sponsors to see that they would really be good role models. Since my school closed, I haven't been to church. In fact, I was a long time member of SJS, so of course with the closing of the school, I pretty much let my membership slide. Anyway, I decided that this is important enough to go back! I'm joining the local church up here, and I plan to be an active member. I already talked to the women in charge of getting letters, like the one I need, put together. She was very understanding and stated that after a month or so, she would take care of it for me. I mentioned that I felt like one of those Catholics that only go to the church when you need something, but she could understand my reasoning. Anyway, I'm signing up. Dave is ok with it too, even though he is not much of a church goer.
Well, that's it for now!

Ok, in case you're wondering, I took the music off my blog. The reason for this is, I'm going to try to get involved in the web-ring for women's blogs. My good friend (and mother) got me hooked on checking out this web ring, but they do not accept blogs with music. Mom was wondering why her "granni" blog didn't get accepted. I'm glad I was able to figure it out for her!
I'm a little bummed out that this is the second day the tag-board has been down. I hope it is up and running again soon!
Things are very quiet around here. It is sooooo cooooold out! Of course it is January, so that is to be expected in Michigan! Well, that's it for now!
O&O fellow bloggers!

What box do you get put in?
brought to you by Quizilla
I took the quiz mom recommended. It's funny! I ended up with the same result she did!
I can't believe how COLD it is here! Man! I froze just walking out to the garage! I guess next week is going to be the same. Bummer. Here's an update on that poor female cardinal who kept flying into our bathroom window. We haven't seen her for at least a week. Maybe longer. It's good! I hope she got herself figured out. She didn't die at our window either, because I checked it out. I wanted to make sure she didn't run hard into the window and kill herself. She really didn't have the room to do that though.
Well, that's it for now!
Catch you all later, blog buddies!

Well, I thought I'd better blog, as I just posted on 2 tag boards that I missed 2 of my friends blogging!
YIPEE!!!! My computer room is about as organized as it is gonna get! It looks pretty good, but I still want to get all my photo album stuff in order. I finished on Tuesday. As Martha Stuart would say, "It is a good thing!"
Tuesday evening Dave and I went to the Lion's meeting for the first time since June. I'm glad we went, but I wish the club was a bit more productive. We did talk about some upcoming projects, and I will post info on some of them as the come up. Last night one of Dave's buddies stopped over. We had a good visit in the kitchen. If they had visited in the pole barn I would have missed out, because I get antsy out there. We were in 'cause the garage was too cold! Oh well, Matt stayed longer than he planned and as a result, I didn't get on here much so I didn't get around to blogging yesterday.
Well, that's it from here!
O&O Blog Buddies!

I hope everyone had a good weekend! I almost got my computer room organized. It should be completed by tomorrow. I also organized all my coffee cups! For those of you who know me, you know that I have LOTS of cups!
I'm glad folks are tagging my board. I hope to see more messages, and I want to encourage folks who just stop by on a whim to sign in also. I think it will be neat to see where people are from, and if there are any visitors outside of family.
Well, that's it for now!

Ok, I got my tagboard set up in the colors I can live with! Don't forget to check it out when you visit my blog!
Hey, remember that delicious homemade pizza mom used to make when we were kids? You know, the kind with frozen bread dough and assorted toppings of our choice? Well, that's what I made for dinner tonight. DELICIOUS!!! I forgot to buy pepperoni and mushrooms, but there was enough other stuff on it that Dave didn't even notice what was missing. There's even enough for breakfast and/or lunch! Yum yum!
Well, that's it for now.
I added a tagboard to my blog! Feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for checking it out! I will try later tonight to add color to my tagboard!

Hi Friendly Blog Readers!
Once again, I did not realize that it had been so long since I last blogged! .... And I even told Natwi last night I was going to blog last night! To quote my sis... "I lied!" Sowwy!!! Anyway, I think about all this time I've had off work, and I wonder where it all goes! I seem busy every day, and that's good, but the task of running a home is, well, boring! I guess when you work full time things like dust don't really bother you as much, at least in my case it didn't. Now I see it, and it seems I just dusted a day ago, but really it was a week ago, and I have too many little things to pick up and dust under, it takes about 3 hours to get it all done. Oh well. I'm doing other things too. For instance, my computer room is finally taking shape. I'm finding places to put stuff so everything will eventually have a place of its own. Saturday we are going to move my BIG desk so we can clean the window and vacuum under it. It hasn't been done in well over a year or 2! OOPS!! See what I mean! It never bothered me before, but now I really feel a need to clean under the desk! I'm sure this feeling will pass, but hopefully not until after the job is done! HAHA! I'm also making real progress on my wall hanging for the new grandbaby. It won't be done by the time she is born, but it should be done shortly after. I find stitching to be very relaxing and I'm trying to get at least an hour a day doing it. It usually happens during the Letterman show. I'm also getting some done in the morning, because I decided if I'm watching tv, I may as well be stitching. Well, I hope you enjoyed my ramblings, and hopefully I'll blog again soon!

Well, well, well..... This is my first post of the new year! We have had a couple of busy days around here, and believe me, I was ready for the relaxing day I had today! It was good, VERY GOOD!! Nat, Mom, and I spent the day at Patti's. We were supposed to be cropping and working on scrapbooks, but I did not have any time this week to get stuff together so I brought my cross stitch! It was a good day of stitching for me and I enjoyed visiting with the family. Very enjoyable! I got some laundry done when I got home, so I was also a little productive!
THANKS, PATTI! FOR THE NICE TIME!
