Off to

The Windy City. We head out way before dawn to Chicago. I am going for a work conference and then some fun. I have barely packed and as always am taking more electronics and camera equipment then anyone else. I hope to blog my fun as we go so stay tuned .....

So much GLEE

That's what I feel after watching this show, GLEE. I love the music and the show. I am fully hooked. Just finished watching the Madonna episode.
Loved it. I have bought all the music off itunes and find myself driving down the road singing along with the lyrics without a care in the world. Not many things, or people for the matter can do that for me. So all I can see, if you have not been bitten by the bug, then power up Hulu TV or netflix and get to watching.

If only Henry the 8th really looked like

Johnathon Reece Meyers, than maybe he would not have had so many wives!!

I have to say I have been a huge Tudor fan since day one and have never read so many books on English History if it was not for the show!!! I have even gotten my twin sister hooked. Alas it is the last season. If you have never watched the show, its a must see. The scenery and production is out of this world. I really enjoy the show soooo much.

Richard got up early today to go coyote hunting and he got up at 4:30 am which in turn woke me up and once I am up I cant go back to sleep. So upsetting as Sunday is the only day I truly can sleep in. So unfair. So I was up cleaning up my mess from yesterday. Here are two projects I worked on. First a add some shabby chic to my chairs to help take away from the fact that they are beige and black and not black and white. The flowers are made of coffee filters as seen on Rhonna Farrer blog.
This is a rolled fabric flower, also seen on Rhonna Farrer blog that I made for my May Hybrid mothers day layout.

Hope everyone has a good Sunday, I am off to have breakfast with my son and get some plants for the front.

Oh glee!!!!

I cannot believe I am going to say this but I am OBSESSED with glee!!!!!! I guess the technical term is Gleek!!

By far Rachel is my favorite character, but love them all!!

I have long been a musical fan. Love Love Love them. Now that I have more time and money I have seen more musicals. Well after the golden globes, everywhere I turned I saw Glee this and glee that. Thanks to Hulu TV I was hooked. As I sit and type this, I am watching last nights episode and all I can say is it is the only thing that has made me smile with Glee this week!!!

Oh technology... be still my heart (forget the checkbook)

No one would be surprised that I love technology. I am a computer geeket and love getting new toys. This weekend I entered the world of video calling.

I skyped my daughter Rachel who lives in Long Beach and then got my sister The princess skyping. Its so much fun to see each other and now that I know my rachie will be living away from bako, it makes me feel that much better. I originally looked into it so that when i am in Europe in September for 16days I would have a way to see Richard as he will have a tough time with me gone for so long.

So I encourage everyone to start skyping!!!! Its so free and easy. I plan on getting my sissy Foo Foo and camera and installing it when I am there in may!!!!!

Well this will be for life, Oh Sigh

This is my new accessory!
I have been battling what I though was a form of carpal tunnel. However was involving my ulner nerve. I have had injections, bone scans, MRI. This past week I went to a hand specialist when my previous physicians follow up was seriously lacking and communication had broken down.

What I have learned is it in no carpal tunnel but what looks like chronic tendinitis. Thus prevention and modification is what the treatment is and worst off RESTING of my right hand when its hurting.

Everyone knows how much I work and how much I play, sooooooo this is a real bummer. Prophylactic motrin prior to weekend scrappin will be a must and I must always wear this "accessory" when using the mouse. So I guess its a small price to pay for having fun. Now if only I could cut my work hours (typing and writing) then I would not have to cut my Happy Place Hours!!!!!

Such Disappointment

I have been waiting for two months for my damask parsons chairs to get here. Yesterday they came and oh they were not the right color. What I thought I bought was this.What came was this.
Its black and cream not black and white. The picture of what I bought to me is black and white but lesson learned you have to read the description or get a swatch as the description says black and sand. Oh sigh! They were custom made and cannot be returned. I am super bummed. Do you think they look out of place or am I being too critical?

Is June 1st tomorrow???

I am a pretty tough cookie. Work Work Work without complaint most of the time. But I am not sure I can take much more ... Would patients please be patient, would people work and show up to work when they are suppose to. Would everyone help one another and not worry about how much more they are doing than their coworker, would patients realize we are human and that complaining loudly and often will not get you in to be seen any faster. Would the patient who is talking and talking and talking 30 minutes longer than they should, apologize to the next patient for their 45 minute wait. Would June 1st get here tomorrow so I can go back to doing just two jobs instead of 3! Okay off to bed as 4:30. am comes soon and I need all the rest I can get before I tackle another day.

Easter means...

Easter means so many things to so many people. It means "he lives", it means chocolate bunnies, colorful Easter eggs, and to me it means FAMILY.

I have been looking forward to this weekend and having a houseful. I was not disappointed. We have such laughs and of course I took Tons and Tons of pictures. I dyed Easter eggs and had such fun. Rachel was home and we took pictures for her grad announcements and I ate, boy did I eat! So I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter. I leave you with a couple of Pics

3 Alarm

Just catching up early this am before my nail appointment. I had been sick with the flu all weekend and into Monday and still have all that I was going to do over the weekend to get ready for Easter to do this week, on top of Happy Hour with a friend, dinner with the family, business dinner tonight and pictures to take tomorrow. Wow, no wonder I still feel a little puny LOL
Friday my buddy Candice and I put the finishing touches on her sons Firetruck cake for his 3rd birthday party at Fire Station No 1. We did a test cake two weeks ago and it sucked. Now neither one of us had ever made a cake, but we watched the YouTube Video and said we can do that! We learned from our first mistakes and tackled it for the big day. It turned out well for amateurs. The Birthday Boy Love It and that's all that matters. We now are moving on to princess's cake I think LOL

I think we did good, for the first time around ♥
