Totally ME~

This is so totally me... a little bit country and a little bit city... I prefer the country and all that it has... the fresh air, the sound of animals, the open skies, fields and gardens and trees and grass... even hay. I just love it all. And then we have the city... I love the fashion, the shopping, the culture and arts.
Somedays I struggle though with both... the boredom of the country and the hustle-bustle of the city.
OMGOSH... does this make me a double personality??? ... ooo self-discovery time... haha Cristal from Crazy 8's sure did open a can of worms here with this challenge. hahaa
Nawww.. Im just me. A huge worrier, an emotional girl that takes literally everything to heart. Some say that is a sign of weakness.. I say whatever... because Im strong and know myself very well. I wont lie, its not in me to do it. Im an open book, a friendly sort. I believe a smile will get you most anything you want. I like being the speaker in a forum, and I guess I love attention. Im a friend who tries desperately to be there, Im a mother who feels guilty for not having my older boys with me.. and this my friends is something I struggle with on a daily basis. Im a wife who is absolutely in love with her husband... Ive been married 4 times.. and I have to say this is the one.. I knew from the moment I saw him.. and I think we were made for one another. Im a sister, yes the older one... and boy those brothers of mine are like my best friends. Im a daughter... my Mom was my best friend for so long. My Dad GOD rest his soul was my rebel partner. He would turn over in his grave if he knew the life I was given when he gave me up for a better one. Im all of these things, the days and nights of constant division and product of my surroundings. Im happy, Im sad, Im guilty, Im totally me....

Funky Town~

I was thinking the other day about what song Id chose for my MySpace layout.. I love to switch it up and usually do once a week or more... sometimes several times a day... LOL...
Anyway, I got to thinking about the one song that I have been hearing a bunch on 106.5 The Arch
FUNKY TOWN... It just makes me want to get up and dance.. it makes me want to sing.. it makes me happy!
So, I put it on my page and turned it up while Todd was in the shower.. he came out dancing... I was like see, this song just makes people happy.... I began to tell Todd what it did for me when I was a kid. It took me away.. I didnt have the most *wonderful* of childhoods.... and on the weekends when my Mom worked {she was my safe haven}Id be in charge of all the *womanly* duties.. Id spend all day in the laundry room and kitchen, cleaning with a toothbrush. I was OCD back then even...hahaa But then again I had all weekend right? So my parents bought this huge blackboard and put it in the laundry room which was right off the kitchen. While I was doing my chores Id listen to the American Top 40 Countdown via Kasey Kasem, Id write the songs on that blackboard as I sang and danced and cleaned...heh, kinda like Cinderella... I dont know, it just took me away... I was in my own little world. And I remember this song.. I remember the artist... Lipps, Inc. I thought wow, what a cool name for a band... What a groovy song!!!!.... It just made the weekends at home amidst the rotten stuff go by...and it was my escape. ;)

While the water line was broke...

yeah... can you believe it... on the one day I planned so much, this misfortunate mess happened upon us... I was so mad... I had to take the frustration on something... so my scrappin' supplies took heed and.....
I finished my coasters for the Coaster Swap over at
Crazy 8's Lounge
Hopefully Theresa likes them, she chose fall colors {deep greens, yellows, purples and burgundy}.
I got the kit from WalMart over in Highland, IL.. We rarely go over there, but boy when we do... I usually find something cool in the scrappin' section. Also, I have to add, I had a little helper named Hunter hehee.. He handed me the brads for the flowers and sat and chatted with me while I was decorating.. what a good lil dude! Im happy..
