It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Wow...less than two week from Christmas. Have I finished my shopping? The correct question should be have I started my shopping. I have a few things bought, but for some reason I just cannot get into the mood this year. I have my youngest Grand done and almost finished for my other one, but almost nothing for my husband, kids, or parents. I guess I will get out there tomorrow after making a list and get it done. Just so much to do around here since our second trip to Alabama earlier this month when we totally finished emptying the house. It still has not sold, but that is another depressing story for later. Our garage here is over flowing. You may have some walking room, but that is it. Most of the things we just brought home was attic stuff. Half ours, half our kids. Our girls both have said they don't want any of their things, but I am not giving it to them to throw out. I will continue holding it until they change their mind.
I have been making a few Christmas cards. Only a f…

My Poor Blog.....

My poor blog. I have severely neglected it these past few months. Facebook has taken over my life and I just love it!. It is so hard to remember to eat or feed the dog with my fanny stuck to the chair all day. If I didn't have to go to work in the evening, I guess I would stay in my PJ's all day with a Diet Coke in front of me and Frazier reruns playing on the TV.

Our house still has not sold. We have changed realtors also and that has not helped. The first realtor had our house for almost four months and only showed it one time. Everyone told me, even my sweet Momma said it was time to change. She is a very nice woman and sells a lot of houses, but just not ours. I hated to do it, but it was a business decision. The realtor we have now has shown it many times, but still nothing. We lowered the price and she said it's priced to sell. The house is 100% show ready, but not sold. Why..why..why? Grrrrrrr.

September is almost here and school started back in our area this week.…

I am now a Close To My Heart Consultant

I was talked into it....sort of. I think Close To My Hearts beautiful papers, inks, and stamps really sold me on signing up. I am totally in the dark with what is expected of me, but I am willing to learn. I will be focusing using CTMH products for my weekly card class. Up to this point I have used a variety of other companies products. Here is a video showing our current promition; Dotty If you are interested in placing on order, please let me know.

It's Offical

Well, after a long, drawn out process, I finally have our house on the market. It really could have, should have been listed back in December, but I have been dragging my feet on doing this. It's sad, but I just don't want to leave my home, friends, and life in Alabama. But lately, I have really been missing seeing my husband and know it's time to move on. Rick and I had talked of moving to Texas after we retired in five to seven years,  but our plans were changed after learning his boss/owner was terminally ill and sold the company. So, life goes on. But my heart and home will always be in Alabama.

Moving to Texas

Rick's company was suddenly bought out in August and they were told the company would change hands in October. Rick said if he has to start over with a company, he would rather start over in Texas close to our girls. He called a similiar type of business in Fort Worth, they flew him out there over Halloween weekend and offered him the job. Rick's first day on his new job was in mid December and my job here was to get the house on the market. Well.... a month later still no for sale sign. I have played around and enjoyed scrapping when I wanted to and make a daily trail of my clothes and dishes throughout the house! LOL Well, Rick has run out of patience and I have been warned ........ So I have cancelled any further card classes at Hobby Lobby after tomorrow until I have enlisted a realtor and have a sign in the yard. I thought I would post my sneak peaks for my class tomorrow on here today. I have totally loved doing my weekly classes and I am amazed by the time and effort it…

BCS Champions!

This post is not about scrapbooking, but something to scrapbook about! What an exciting game!!
