End Of Your Rope

Haven’t we all felt this way one time or another?

And, yes, all we can do is ‘hang on’…………………..

Life Is a Melody

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

I have lived my life thinking life should be a Bon Jovi song.  Very sweet, loving and happily ever after.

Imagine my surprise to find out it really is a Grand Slam Heavy Metal Jam! Hard, heavy and head banging.

Now, how did I make this monumental discovery, you may wonder? 

well…………………

I had a class reunion this summer.  (Yes, it was a very high number!!!) I was really looking forward to it, as I had not been to one in many, many years.  I had a great time, renewed some acquaintances and turned a few heads! Of course I had on a pair of my favorite drop dead stiletto’s and sexy top!  Life was good.  Very, very good that night.

As I arrived home, I was horrified to discover my house had been broken into and I had been robbed!  They took all my gold jewelry, cash, passport and driver license.  (I can only hope my name doesn’t become the next terrorist!)

Yep, Heavy Metal…………………..

I think Guns ‘n Roses are right…………”Welcome To The Jungle”.

Crafty Me

sewing

I know I have been so bad about posting.  Summer caught up with me, and I just found it too hot to sit in front of a computer….

Ok, so what about Fall?  Winter? I admit, I have been a real slug lately.  I have been doing alot of my crafy stuff, and listing on Etsy.  But even with that I have not been as persistant as I should be.  I had to go through the whole routine of changing my seller name, so I don’t have an ex-husband stalking me……………what a pain.

I have to admit, I love creating.  Fabric is my passion. My family is aware of this and they overlook the scraps of material piled up in  my workroom…………..NOTHING is thrown away.  My grandaughters love the “creative grandma” and usually have requests.

“Grandma, I want you to make me a doll,” Drama Queen announced.

Now, I have never even attempted a doll………….ever……………….

“Do you think grandma can sew anything?” I asked.

“Yes.” The smile was irresistable.

So…………The oddest little figure was created, and is now loved by Drama Queen, as if it were the only doll in the world.

How long do you think it will be before she realizes “Strange Little Looking Doll” needs clothes?????

Vegas

vegas

Every year my family gets together and we take my 85 year old mother to Las Vegas for a week.  I must admit my family is crazy, and we end up returning with sore cheeks from laughing so hard!  This year was no different.  We headed out the beginning of September knowing we would be spending a week of laughs (alcohol is added to the mix).

This is where my cousin comes in to play.  Since I usually have a drink or two……….I have told him his mission in Vegas is to make sure I don’t get married again!!! After the string of bad luck I have had lately (will go into it later), he said he thought I would need a GPS unit!

He did his job well.  I am back home safe, sound, and still single…………………

And very glad that what happens in Vegas………………………….
