OH where oh where have I been??

OK, by the list on Karen's blog.. I haven't posted for a while.. YUP, that is right.. nothing too special going on.. I got a "flush" email from the U of M.. just so you are up to speed, I thought I had "nailed" the interview... and the best part??.. well.. they misspelled words too!! Made me feel really great. Now, they informed me that they were only interviewing 5 people for the job.. I guess maybe that is suppose to make me feel better! NOT!!

OK, so where have I been?? Nothing too special.. we went to the MN Zoo I think last weekend.. I really love the seahorses.. I can drive Hannah nuts by just watching them forever.. but you have to admit.. they are cute!!!
Hannah did inform me that they are putting in Sea Dragons soon too.. that will be fun to watch too...

Now some time ago... Jeannie from Dragonfly Journeys had a blog candy thing.. and it was basically for 5 people who post win a card set...

well... here is my winnings..!!! She is so talented!! OMG..
So to be fair...
The first five people to respond to this post will get a card set made by me!

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I hope you like and can use what I make, but no guarantees.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done within the next month.(more or less)
4. You have no clue what it's going to be. I have tons of ideas, but who knows what it will be?
5. The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same!

Basically, the first (or only) 5 people to leave a comment will win a card set by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it and my blog name!

Then there is my little munchie.. She decided she wanted to get her hair cut.. Sort of like Alice from Twilight.. And I am one of those Mom's who believes it's just hair...

Very cute.. I have to admit.. Kathy who cuts her hair just loves it when she will go wild.. She said that she added a couple years with the new hair cut!!

So anyway.. that is what I have been up to.. nothing special.. nothing too exciting.. just sort of blah!!

And nothing to note about this picture, but, Sasha was really being cute.. and I had to share!

One sign... Almost a teen

Well, as you know.. Hannah had her birthday at the end of February.. the big 12... well.. here is proof that she is "totally" turning into a teen...

Nothing like catching her off gaurd...

Little did she know..

It was just too funny....

And Pat had his birthday last Sunday.. YUP.. I know a whole week ago.. and I still hadn't posted this..
Pat likes apple pie.. so I usually make him a pie instead of cake for his birthday.. I had the perfect cake ready to make.. but nope.. he wanted pie..
As you can see.. he is not one to enjoy having his picture taken either...

OH.. that and Dirty Dancing..

The Messenger

OK, so I read this book.. I guess I should have read Gathering Blue after The Giver, but I didn't know that they were related..
So anyway.. I read this mainly because I did enjoy The Giver.. EVEN though it was slightly disturbing. I am still thinking of what the message was in the book.
So... anyway.. at the point where I am with out a book again.
I have pretty much made my mind up that I am going to quit SU.. or stop being a demo.. or what ever you do.. I tried, I guess I just never really got enough of a following to make it worth while. I will be using my friend Deb as my consulantant. I have until the end of the month.. OK, actually, I think I will have until the end of April.. I will be put in "pending"... so I will just make sure that I have my paper up to date, and enough of it.. and if there are any sets that I have to have.. I am trying to decide if I want the Big Shot or not. That is one I have to think about.
Tomorrow is my wonderful hubby Pat's birthday!! He will be 41!! I am sure that he will be happy that I told "the world" that he will be 41.. but well.. So I will make him his favorite dinner of country pie, and an apple pie.. since he likes that more than cake..
That is about all..
Leave me a message...

books I have been reading....

OK, so I have been reading some more of the Percy Jackson series that started with The Lightening Thief.. Which I liked... so this was number 2.... I didn't like it as much as The Lightening Thief.. but I liked it enough to go on to the next book...

...and #3.... Which I liked much better than #2... this one was more entertaining..
I haven't read #4 yet.. and #5 comes out this spring...

Then Hannah's reading teacher had asked her to read The Giver... and suggested that I might want to read that one first as well...
BOY... this one was a book that made me think. There are some really strange things that happen in this book. I wonder how someone comes up with this stuff.. It was a quick read.. and I liked it.. but when I got done with the book.. I just went..."hm"... and then "hm" again...

Where I have been

Well Saturday was Hannah's 12th birthday.. Hard to believe that my baby is 12! I mean really... I remember having her!! They say you forget... BUT you don't...
Anyway.. She had 2 of her friends spend the night on Friday.. They did a "spa" thing.. you know.. paint your nails.. run around and scream at the top of your lungs.. the normal.. Anyway.. I was emailing Michelle about cakes, because her daughter Taylor's b'day is March 1st.. and she sent me a link for a cake.. well.. I can't say that mine turned out as well.. but Hannah was happy with it.. And it tasted yummy.. and it's gone.. so that is a good sign...

And for some reason, no matter what.. when ever she has friends spend the night.. she wants pancakes for breakfast.. and since Saturday was her birthday.. I HAD to put a candle in hers!!

Tomorrow (Tuesday) I have an interview at the University of Minnesota. They are opening a BRAND SPANKING NEW clinic. Wish me all the luck.. because to tell you the truth, I am scared to death!!
My work situation isn't good. The dentist I work for is going broke! He is a terrible money manager.. and well.. he has champagne taste on a WATER budget! (not even beer budget..) So both the assistant and I are looking for new jobs.. because we really don't know how long we will have one where we are at. I guess we are just like millions of others out there.
So anyway... I didn't have any interview clothes.. I know hard to believe... I mean can't think why I would have ANY thing other than scrubs.. so we went to JCPenny's and Hannah found this wonderful Jones Wear Suit that was regularly $200 on sale for GET THIS... $29.97!!! AND it fit.. so I am hemming the pants tonight.. because as most of you know.. I am a bit on the petite side.. but with heals and 1 hem up.. I am set to go...

And the whole Stampin' Up thing?? well.. not sure.. but I am thinking of letting myself go into pending and just dropping.. I can order from my friends.. with the economy and all of that.. I just don't know if it is worth it any more...

Well leave me a message.. let me know you are out there!!

OH and just an FYI.. today is Jon Bon Jovi's b'day.... so a litte eye candy too!!
