Scrappin' Saturday

   I think I'll keep up with the posts better if I post these on Saturday. Saturday morning is kinda when my scrapping week starts over, so if I post the previous week's LOs Saturday morning, instead of waiting until "Make Something Monday" I don't think I'll forget to post as often. Because I have the posts finished, just forget to publish them. D'oh! Anyway, without further ado, here's my pages for this week.

Make Something Sometime

Here they be. This is what I did this week. Lots and lots of pages. I do so love this hobby. It makes me so happy. I can't wait to look at these pages when my daughter is grown. I hope they do their job and help us remember.

Whatever Wednesday

   I'm not even sure what Wednesday's supposed to be. What starts with W? Watch something? Whatcha readin'? I'm too lazy to actually go look and see what it's supposed to be. So, now that I've typed those two things, I'll just share what I watch and what I'm reading. Great idea, Kate!

   So, TV. I watch a lot less TV than I used to. Most of my evenings are taken up with digiscrapping after my little goes to sleep, but I tend to kind of "listen/watch." A lot of shows my husband really watches and I just kind of listen and glance up at them. And then I pepper him with annoying questions about what little detail I missed. And he always answers very patiently. Have I ever mentioned how much I love that guy? So these are the shows I watch. Some of these are on in the summer, some are in the regular TV season. I'm not going to organize them in any way. Just what I remember, really.
Parenthood
Downton Abbey
Grey's Anatomy
Big Bang Theory
The New Normal
Go On
Burn Notice
Royal Pains
Covert Affairs
Elementary
Persons of Interest
Sherlock Holmes

   I feel like I'm missing something. My hubby watches a ton more stuff that I don't pay one bit of attention to. Mostly stuff about guns and people punching people in the face. Good times. For him. Apparently.

  OK, on to what I'm reading. I'm actually excited, because I've been in such a reading funk for the last, like, 4 months. I haven't really been reading. Even at work, when I listen to books almost non-stop, I just haven't been into it. Well, this past week I picked up the book I had started reading ages ago and am really into it. It's the second book in the "The Discovery of Witches" series, Shadow of Night. I wasn't really liking it, but one of my friends said I should give it another try, and I've been loving it ever since. And at work, I finished the second book in the Beyonders series by Brandon Mull. It was good and had a good story line. I can't wait for the 3rd and final book that comes out in a couple months.

   So, that's what's up with me. Exciting, huh?

Later gators,

Kate

New Year and All

Yeah, I haven't been around. For all 3 of my followers. Those holidays sure do kick schedules in the butt, huh?!

Both our Thanksgiving and Christmas, and everything in between were wonderful. Lots of family, friends, and food, which is exactly what the holidays are about, right? They are for me!

I'm not going to try to catch up on all the digiscrap pages that I didn't get to post. Please, if you're at all interested, you can always go to my home gallery at TDC and check any and all of my stuff out. I'm just gonna start with my most recent stuff from this past week.

Random Saturday

   When I started blogging again, I really didn't want it to be always my digital scrapbooking stuff and that was all. I'm sorry that's what it's turning in to. It seems to be the one post that I have no problem getting together.  So, if you hate seeing my stuff, you might wanna move along 'cause this blog probably isn't for you.

   Anyway, just gonna share some random thoughts today. You know, Random Ruminations and all.

   We had an initiative on the ballot in November for a new library to be passed in an area in our county. We were really hopeful this year. This is the third time we've tried to get it passed in the last 12 years. We really thought this year was going to be our year. But it failed. And I was so mad. I mean, come on people! Who wouldn't want a library in their town? I'll tell you who. People who don't care what it's for...they just no way, no how, will pay for a tax increase in their area. I get it. The economy is bad. But a library isn't just books. It's help with a resume. It's computer training. It's children's programs. It's A PLACE TO LEARN. I couldn't do much more than just shake my head. I could get into politics and this side did this and this side did that, but this just sucks across the board.

   What else? Umm, we got iPhones. That's pretty cool. I love being able to Facebook my sister and nieces. And my mom and kiddo when I'm at work. It's fast and I've used the Internet while out and about. I was out with friends, and we were talking politics (but being very nice) and we were talking about that one couple where he's a democratic political pundit and she's a staunch republican. All I could remember was that he was bald. So what did I Google on my phone at dinner? "The bald democra" and Google actually filled the rest in for me. Apparently, a lot of people have had the same question I did and all they could remember was that James Carville (ding ding ding!!) was bald.

   My best friend is getting ready to visit us in a couple weeks, all the way from Ireland. To say that I'm excited it putting it ridiculously mildly. I am so excited and nervous at the same time. It's going to be so different to finally see her in person. What if she doesn't like me in person? I know that's not going to happen, but it's run across my mind.

   One more thing that is on my mind today, because it just happened. Kiddo and I were driving home from my Grandma's house and this really jacked-up truck was driving beside me and being kinda obnoxious. You know the type...speeding up and slowing down right beside you, like "Hey, I'm cool stuff." Whatever dude. You and your redneck truck are super cool. When he passed, I saw a little boy in his front seat, I'd guess about 6-7 years old. I thought to myself that he shouldn't be driving like such an idiot with a kid in the car. Well, he shouldn't be driving like an idiot any time, but you know what I mean. THEN, he got all the way past me, and I saw was was plastered across his back window. In big, white letters, professionally done, I might add, was the phrase, "Raise your toys boys, 'cause fat girls can't climb." And my stomach dropped to my feet and I felt sick. That is just sickening. To 1.Think that way. To 2. Advertise that you feel that way. And 3. To subject children to that way of thinking. Maybe I'm a fuddy duddy. So be it. That makes me absolutely sick.

   Ok, don't like to end on such a negative note, but that's that. I'll be back Monday with all my scrappin' goodies. Hope you enjoy.
