Random stuff (because I'm a random kind of gal...)

* I was THRILLED to discover that the show "Six Degrees" returned last night with a brand new episode. I got sucked into it months ago when it first started and then it just disappeared off the air for reasons still unbeknownst to me. But it's back baby, and I couldn't be more excited!

* I decided last night that I'm just going to ignore the world. The girls ignore me when I'm saying something they don't want to hear... Steve ignores me in that way that men do when you're trying to talk to them or remind them of something... Steve ignores the girls when they're swinging from the ceiling fans and out of control... I figure if I was put on this earth to be ignored, I may as well ignore everyone right back, no? LOL!

* We got a little fresh air this morning. Spring is finally starting to give us glimpses of herself and we couldn't be happier. We're all officially done with being stuck in the house all the time.

* Some friends of ours invited themselves are coming over to our house tonight. I'm still undecided if I'm going to keep the girls home to play with their boys that are almost the same ages, or if I'm going to send the girls to sleep over at my mom's like they've been planning to do all along (and not telling them that the boys might be coming). I'm leaning towards Grandma's house. Mama needs a break. LOL!

* I should be cleaning right now, but frankly, I don't feel like it.

* I adore my nephew and generally speaking, have NO problem with him spending almost every weekend with us so he and Steve can go walking around mountains or cutting down trees or whatever it is they do while they're gone. But I swear to god, he eats/drinks the very last bite/swallow of everything in the house. And it's usually the stuff I want. Last weekend, he ate my last big cinnamon muffin (I eat one every day for breakfast when they're here.) Last night, he almost ate the last of the girls Cheezits (they're favorite snack) before I saw him and threatened him with bodily harm if he even thought about it. Today, I went in the refrigerator to get out the last 2 pieces of leftover pizza for the girls and I for lunch, and guess what... it's not there. Gee, I wonder who took that. [sigh] He doesn't do it on purpose, but it's getting pretty damn aggrevating.

* Mary, I'll think up some interview questions for you and post 'em later.

* We're eating hot wings tonight! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!

* Another layout, just for shits and giggles:

Background Paper: Meredith Fenwick; Newsprint Paper: Amy Kropp; Cardboard Overlays: Linda GB; Frame: Holly McCaig; Dots Border Template: Seebee; Green Paper Used in Dots: Bren Boone; Glitter Swirls: Carrie Stephens (recolored)

I must start scrapbooking or I will shrivel up and blow away. That one is so cool!

Allison said...

LOL! Yes! You really MUST start. So... much... FUN!

September said...

You're a flippin' artist, Allison!! I heart that layout (and, after downloading freebies for months I really need to get my ass in gear and start scrapping).

Allison said...

LOL! Thanks September, but I wouldn't call me an artist. Digital scrapbooking is largely just a drag-and-drop process. Sure you can do some "fancy" things with blending and drop shadowing, but it really isn't a complicated process at all once you learn your photo editing software.

Truthfully, this layout took me HOURS. And it's a shame, because the actual technical part of it probably took me a total of about 15 minutes. Where I'm (severely) lacking, is the "artistic" part of it. I spend hours rotating things on the page a fraction of an inch until it looks "right". And I swap out elements over and over again until I find the ones that look right. If I could get a better grasp on that sort of thing, I could bang out 5 or 6 layouts a day. But I'm working on it... LOL!

The eating all the food thing-- it's aboy thing! Wyatt is only six and alreday eats CONSTANTLY. I can't even imagine how we are going to make a house payment, an dfeed this kid at the same time. lol

The scrapbooking is too cute!

My answers are up.

The problem with ignoring the worls is that it doesn't ignore you back.

I wish ignoring is that easy, huh? Great idea, though.

Love the scrapbooking page! I need to get caught up from Christmas. Can you print these papers, or order them as an album. This seems so much easier than cropping and taping them to my Creative Memories stuff. Besides, it's getting so expensive!
