a song for my soul

I love her music and songs and this one is a great one.

Martina Mcbride
Do It Anyway

You can spend your whole life buildin'
Something from nothin
One storm could come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You could chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great but sometimes life aint good
And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like i think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This worlds gone crazy
And it's hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all you heart
For all the right reasons
And in a moment they can choose to walk away
Love 'em anyway

God is great but sometimes life aint good
And when I pray
It doesn't always turn out like i think it should
But I do it anyway
Yeah I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singin'
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yeah sing it anyway

I sing
I dream
I love anyway

what flavor are you

What Flavour Are You? Buzz buzz, I am Coffee flavoured.Buzz buzz, I am Coffee flavoured.

I am popular in the workplace, even though I am often bitter. I am energetic to the point of being frenetic; buzz buzz, out of my way. I tend to overwork myself and need periods of recovery time. What Flavour Are You?

what is on your list?

What is on your wish list for a $250 or less combined total? this is from Kate at letKateDrive

I like her list

but I have been working on mine too, I would like a couple of new underpinnings mine are in sad shape LOL

I wanted a AMM-Tote-ally cool tote for scrapping, but one of the stores here had a great sale ( so I bought myself one already)
I like the crop-0-dial too, but I too am practical in my thinking that in my " scrapping things" I have duplicates of this too, maybe the next time I get a great coupon

I would like a blue tooth headset for my cell phone for hands free talking in the Mom van.

I would like the 2007 designing with calender.

that is it for the moment I will think on this a bit more still. I love retail therapy ...

a little blogger survey

says you could win an Ipod by doing the survey it didn't take long.

what these are made of

s are a set that comes all together in the same color family from making memories company. the side of the lunch box has rubons that are " glittery " too. HH says she will be using hers as her valentine mail box at school this year!!

I should really say how I do it!! they both have this really great paper the lunch box is decoupaged right to the surface , I cut each side and pasted it on with mod podge.

the little pail is more of a- around the pail cover- it was cut and stuck to itself and they are metal so magnets stick to them too!! the flowers are stuck on with glue dots , but are comprised of multiple layers of silk and paper flower parts. and a brad.
the " bling" is little pink sequins and silver sequins glued on with a dimensional adhesive called diamond glaze.

the paper was very cool too, it has some shine and glittery ink and a slightly embossed feel on some of the words.

each has a metal tag- with rub ons for the nick name - and other paper tags attached on the outsides. the ribbon

here are a couple more shots from different angles

altered pail and lunch box

Yeah - I' m Back, after suffering major computer withdrawls

I have to say that the not having the computer has had a few benefits and I have done alot of cards and other cute projects that I will be posting here soon, I have to download my photos from my camera.

I created quite a few valentines and they will soon be winging there way to my peeps- this is my absolutely favorite holiday I just love the notion of a celebration of love.

I created two altered little boxes and I will be sending one away too my special K - one is Hh's she LOVES it too, they are blinged out girly things.

I took on the " senior Warden Job" officially today after our annual meeting at church. I am looking forward to a productive year. we will have some movers and shakers serving on vestry with me and that makes me happy. I see good things in the coming year.

a long and rambling post

I haven’t blogged in a serious manner in quite a while, I have a lot on my mind and heart these days and Thought maybe I should put a little of it out there in the world.

I really took a blow with the loss of my job, even though my boss was a real a$$Hat you can ask anyone who worked for him or with him , he didn’t want to communicate with me, I would have straightened up an flown right had he just had a talk with me, instead I take a bit of the blame for my being let go, with behavior that was acting out to get attention, his business needed his serious attention and I don’t think he wanted to hear it from me or anyone else. He took advantage of the freedoms it offered and after awhile I did too…. Much to my demise!

Enough of that re-hashing.

J- is very much on my mind- he is so in need of boundaries and I am having a hard time making them and getting any of it to “ stick to him” , I fear that he is on the fringe of a bad crowd, even if I can keep him interested and going along in scouting, he doesn’t share this with too many of the other boys in his life. I hope he will strive to get to eagle, but the road gets harder everyday, he has calmed down on the wanting to drive just yet, seeing another kid down the street recklessly go about getting into multiple accidents has cooled his jets a bit. I am worried about drugs too, I am certain it has moved into pot at the very least. Though I am not sure how they manage to get it?? !!! I am very naive in that area, I drank a bit at the end of H.S. and into college and but never did any drugs , they just weren’t for me and did nothing for me either.

The work I am doing now, I apparently am doing it well enough that they let other phone customer service reps go and retained me and one other gal from my group for their current staffing needs at Boston Market ( through Kelly temps) still, it is not my desired field? But then what again has been in the 25 years I have worked as an adult? I did put in an application to get into a re-training program that is federally funded for “ displaced” workers, I will keep you posted on this avenue, as they will do some initial interest inventories and skill assessments and this could be a way to finally find out what I want to do when I grow up J . In the mean time I will keep plugging away at this spot for a while, I have met some very nice people and it is just a fine environment to work in- nothing to serious or strenuous_ and it is still win –win as long as I am working for the temp agency I can move on at anytime and do something else if this really isn’t for me. I guess that the thing I look at there is since it is a foot into the corporate office there are many different jobs in this business and I wouldn’t have to stay on the phones forever…..

One more little ( yeah right) thing now on my mind, is I have been asked to take on the job of senior warden at St. James Episcopal Church- my family Parrish, I was so surprised by this that I laughed out loud right after initially being asked! S and I have talked this over for a while, knowing our current senior warden was going to be stepping down. I just guess I thought it would be someone else- but I also can see that if not now then when? For me it is a big step and big responsibility, I would be the priest-in-charge’s boss and also responsible for lots of things in our church. These are big shoes to fill and I m praying for the best guidance I can get at the moment. S is confident with a little more “ time management” I can do this job along with my other hats I wear like, mom, scouter, worker bee and friend! I hope I will be up to the task, but others have confidence in me and see the good qualities in me that some times I find the most difficult to see, I also know I hide behind myself and don’t let my light shine cause I don’t want the spotlight to be on me. I hope that my shortcomings will not be a liability to this big job. I wasn’t going to post this whole thing up to the blog, but now I really think I should, I hope you all will not judge me too harshly.

I need your prayers and support too my friends in the www- I value the interesting ladies and guys I have been able to connect with online. and I hope you all will send up good thoughts for me in the coming few weeks. Thanks for reading if you have gotten this far!! QT

Denver Baby

Weather Bulletin - Denver

Up here, in the "Mile-Hi City", we just recovered from a Historic event--- may I even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" --- with a historic blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow and winds up to 90 MPH that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of communities and cut power to 10's of thousands.


George Bush did not come.

FEMA did nothing.

No one howled for the government.

No one blamed the government.

No one even uttered an expletive on TV.

Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit.

Our Mayor did not blame Bush or anyone else.

Our Governor did not blame Bush or anyone else, either.

CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC did not visit - or report on this category 5 snowstorm. Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards.

No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House.

No one looted.

Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the government do something.

Nobody expected the government to do anything, either.

No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No Oprah, No Chris Mathews and No Geraldo Rivera.

No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No Hollywood types to be found.

Nope, we just melted the snow for water.

Sent out caravans of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars.

The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks and didn't ask for a penny
Dropped Hay bales from helicopter to stranded and starving cattle.

Local restaurants made food and the police and fire departments delivered it to the snowbound families.

Families took in the stranded people - total strangers.

We fired up wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman lanterns.

We put on extra layers of clothes because up here it is "Work or Die".

We did not wait for some affirmative action government to get us out of a mess created by being immobilized by a welfare program that trades votes for 'sittin at home' checks.

Even though a Category "5" blizzard of this scale has never fallen this early, we know it can happen and how to deal with it ourselves.

"In my many travels, I have noticed that once one gets north of about 48 degrees North Latitude, 90% of the world 's social problems evaporate."

It does seem that way, at least to me.

I hope this gets passed on.

Maybe SOME people will get the message. The world does Not owe you a living

Its snowing again today !

Oh Yeah ! all this and Grieving over Our Lost Sports Icon "Darrent Williams" of the Denver Broncos

"Rest In Peace Homie"
