Man... how time flies!!

Can someone please explain to me where the time goes?!?!? I swear I got up at 7:30 AM this morning. I came in and checked my email, then I tried cutting a file with my KNK - that didn't go to well - so I fought with that for a little, post a question on the KNK group.......

Hmmm... check the message board at Paperthreads, talked to Michelle who walked me through my silly mistake on the KNK (and I am happy to report I am cutting now!! Whooo Hoooo!!!)

Answered more email. Tried to talk to hubby - but something weired is going on with his headphones. The repair people came out to finish the repairs on my house, they didn't finish. They left and then came back and still didn't finish.

Tried talking to hubby again - still didn't work. Answered more emails. Checked the message board again. Fought with the lady at the GA Department of Labor (grrrrr!!!). Talked to two of my friends on the phone. Bought some new dishes!! Talked to the repair people who now hope to finish up tomorrow...... Man - where did the time go?!?!?!

So here I am blogging - First I want to say thank you sooooo very much for all the people that went out and purchased my files yesterday at Paperthreads!!! Looks like it was a good day for the sale!! I can't thank you all enough for supporting me as a designer and buying my stuff!! So thank you!!!!

Second - did you notice up above when I said I bought new dishes!!! Yummy!!! I have been talking about buying a lowboy for my dinning room - and I thought that I had it narrowed down to the one I wanted. Well to get it in my dinning area space I was going to have to off center the table.... so I moved the table to where it was going to have to be moved too and kind of lived with it like that for a few days. Then it dawned on me.... one of the reasons we picked this house plan was because it was soooo open. My kitchen, living area, and dinning room is one big open space for the most part - and if I move everything to make the lowboy fit - it was going to look crowded..... so I bought new dishes instead!!!

My kitchen has a "bird house" theme to it.. and all the bird house stuff you see most of the time is very country. And while I AM A COUNTRY GIRL - I don't really decorate in the country style! And then I found these!!! I am sooo excited!! They are kind of hmmm, whimsical and girlie to boot!

Add to the fact that I got a 12 piece place setting - I am major excited and just in time for Mock Thanksgiving. We are having 8 people staying at our house for a week and we only had seven plates (as one has gotten broken along the way!!!).

And lastly - I got up yesterday morning to an email from my hubby - he actually sent PHOTOS!!!! Now you have to understand I have been begging for pictures forever and then low and behold I got 27 of them yesterday!!! Whooooo Hoooooo!!!!! So I thought I would share one of my favorites with you!!!!

Hope all is well with you - and that your time isn't flying as fast as mine!!!

Until Next Time!

He is adorable, thank you for sharing "him" with us.
Time flying????
Oh yes, A few weeks ago it seems we had our first grand daughter Meg, we celebrated her second birthday on the 29th of August, and we have a second one also, Emi that is four months old.
Time is wizzin' bye for sure.
Hey, maybe you should do a GSD of that very thing!!!!

I know how much those photos mean. Deep down inside when you look at the photos, it is a confirmation that you are sharing the planet with him.

Well when I read your post this evening, I couldn't help but think 'time flies when you're having fun'. My time seems to disappear on me also, so I choose to believe that we are all just having soooo much fun! Thanks for the post, I enjoying reading them and it always seems to make me think of things I probably wouldn't in just a normal day gone by.

I'm so happy you the photo's......maybe there is hope I may get some from my son yet then huh? I begged him for some again this morning....even set up for him to do some with his cell to my Winkflash account. I do believe in miracles. Check out the pictures I took at the Fight for Victory Tour in SF yesterday....lots of supporters for the troops showed up & no anti-war demos at all....!!
