Unspectacular Quirks...

Me&mom

Was rummaging through some old photos and thought I would share a couple.  This one is of me and my mom on my second birthday.  Cake in bottom left hand corner.  Glad I now wear my dresses over my undies!  :)!

Good Day!  I have been tagged by Denise to share with you some unspectacular quirks about myself. Here goes...

1. I must have clean feet!  I have been known to get out of bed just to wash them in the sink if they don't "feel" clean enough at bedtime!

2. I not only eat the exact same thing for breakfast every morning, but I must eat it the same way as well.  I eat oatmeal that I cook with a few added special ingredients.  I cook it until it is thick and then I put it in a bowl and spread it up around the rim.  I like it cooled off a bit and I eat from the outer edge of the bowl down to the bottom.  The upper rim cools off quicker and by the time I get to the bottom, the temperature is just right!  Weird, eh?

3. This is really no secret, but I must  have lip balm with me at all times.  It is really scary how many tubes of Burt's Bees Lip Balm I have all over the house, purse and car.  I keep one in each room and I sleep with one under my pillow for easy access in the night when my lips get dry.  Now that is weird!

4. I can't sleep without a fan. In fact, I sleep with three at home and I travel with a smaller one.

5. I don't like warm lettuce. 

6. I load the dishwasher in a specific way and prefer to do it myself so everything is loaded just right!

I will do my best to tag some other folks soon!

Back to School & Missing Pens...

Notesblog

I am so excited to be starting a new class today!  I've had Adobe Illustrator for a while now and have tried to get in and play with it, but it is a little complicated.  I'm looking forward to learning in a classroom situation so I can ask questions. 

Okay, what is is about ink pens?  Am I the only one who acquires pens from "I don't know where" and loses a pen all of a sudden after taking such good care of it after months and months?  I don't get it!

"d" is for dog and "p" is for pathetic...

Blogdog

No, dogs aren't pathetic!  I'm pathetic because I "need" a dog!  Simply put, I'm a sissy when it comes to sleeping in a house by myself.  That's right!  I'm a grown woman and I can't sleep when the house is empty and I even have a house alarm.  For the second night in a row, while hubby was working the  night shift, my mind wandered until the wee hours of the morning about what I would do if someone broke in.  I have a plan.  It involves running very fast!  I finally had to turn on the light and I don't sleep well with the lights on.  Oh, well!  I thought about the fact that if I eventually found  myself alone in this world, I would have to buy a dog to bring me peace of mind so I could get a good night's sleep.  Pretty pathetic, eh?

Whoop-si-daisies!

Dasiesblog

It was Hugh Grant who said, "Whoop-si-daisies!" in the movie Notting Hill.  You know, it means whoops or oops, but in a funny way!  I like it!

Well, with many things in life the oops will come eventually and it has come to me and my website.  I recently made a behind-the-scenes change with my website...the kind that involves DNS Records, Host Headers, Domain Forwarding and the like. Putting it in simple terms, my website is down right now.  I'm sorry to report that there are some links in my menu bar to the right that are not working.  I'm working to get this fixed, so just know that hopefully the links will be back up and running soon.  This has affected links such as the Life Notes Card Shoppe, tutorial videos and slide shows.

I'll post here when all is well!!  I'm off to smell the flowers!!!  :)

Have a  blessed day!

Words as a Whole...

I found this on the web the other day and it is pretty interesting.  Give it a try:

"Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by itslef but the wrod as a wlohe."
