My Faves & a Bloggy chuckle...

I got this idea from an awesome new kit site called The Girl's Loft...go check it out...if you don't know Margie you should...she is one hilarious hard-working girl that I had the pleasure of meeting at the 2007 Scrap convention. She has started this site (for her new kit club) with her teenage daughters...well all I can say is they are obviously over 16 as my daughter could never be entrusted to help me run a business at this stage of her life! See my HELP! request (post) for further details ...

(BTW on that score we have improved tenfold...despite a bit of complaining things have improved ALOT although there is still room for improvement...) I have become very strict "no-nonsense" with regard to chores & now DD can do the washing - hang it up - & bring it in...not exactly how I would do it, but DONE nonetheless! She helped me willingly (for the first hour) today & begrudgingly for the next...& we did a pretty flashy job cleaning as we had a day off yesterday visiting friends out of town.

So here is my idea from one of the DT members over at the Loft.

1) Fave day of the week: FRIDAY (TGoodnessIF) Psychological I 'spose...
2) Fave colour: PINK (good for clothes but don't do alot of it on my scrappy pages...)
3) Fave music: Taylor Swift right now...no particular type for me...just whatever grabs me at the time...
4) Fave animal: Kitty Cats for sure...
5) Fave food: Sushi - yup I love it - lots ginger & wasabi - that stuff cures my hayfever!
6) Fave hot drink: Skinny decaf cappucino.
7) Fave cold drink: Coke Zero at the moment.
8) Fave season: Definitely Autumn (Fall) here...it's the only tolerable tropical weather!
9) Fave scrappy thing: Bazzill...but let me tell you I am fast getting tired of the scourge here & looking more fondly upon AC cardstock...
10) Fave scrappy place: Definitely my glass desk in my bedroom - despite having to make occassional visits to my official scrappy storage room for supplies I have no space to house.

And yes, I tag YOU! Anyone reading this...consider yourself tagged! C'mon, play along will ya?

Next up is a little chuckle from a very funny site I discovered a while back & was reminded of when I was on Lynette's blog today. I remember seeing this poster below when I had first discovered blogging & not really understanding it...now I can enjoy a hearty good-natured chuckle...


...even though it is very insulting to all us bloggers "out there" (out here???) who make an effort to enhance Cyberspace... I can take a joke ;-D BTW - do yourself a favour & get those healing endorphins flowing by checking out more of the same here.

As for me...I am flailing a bit...I am losing the flu-fight, despite tons of medication...apparently I am supposed to stay in bed all day & all night...like really...some people can do that???!!!

Yes - you do have to stay in bed! Your family WILL cope, in fact you'll be surprised at how well. And you'll get better faster by staying in bed!

No ... I don't know of anyone with the luxury to stay in bed 24/7 ... I never do that ... I find ignoring illness works best for me!!LOL ... hell, don't go with that advice tho ... I take noooo responsibility!! Glad Chelsea is helping you out more ... note. both my kids would be a huge help in running a home business, it's me that can't be bothered!!heehee ...

Yes, some people do that and if thats whats going to make you feel better then it looks as if you have to as well.

Thanks for your concern - I haven't stayed in bed 24/7 but I have taken it easier & I'm hoping that will do the trick...I just wish there was a magic pill that would have me bouncing about again as I have so much I want to achieve ;-D
