Happy Birthday Bro!

Today my baby brother turned 30. I know he wasn't real enthused about turning 30, and I'm guessing that turning 30 in Iraq didn't help. *sigh* The good news? I received an email from him today saying he should be back in the states on the 25th. Woooooooohoooooooooo!!!!!

Super Star!!!!

*strikes super star pose*

With the help of some liquid courage, I did Karoake Friday night. *grin* I sang "All My Friends Say" by Luke Bryan. *big grin* I was shaking soooooo bad. But I did it. My BF was so happy and proud. He's been trying for months now to get me to get up and sing. He sings just about every weekend when we go out. But I've been chicken. *bawk bawk*

Then Saturday night? Without the help of any shots, I got up again and sang "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood. *snort* I didn't shake quite as bad that time.

Busy Randoms

1. Seems like I have something going on after work every single day for the past two weeks. I can't wait until I can sit on my couch and veg after work.

2. This weekend is my real last chance to do any heavy cleaning before Carey is here. Ack!

3. It's hard to clean when the house still isn't all put away, ya know? I want to move the computer into the extra bedroom... but it's been a dumping ground and needs to be cleaned out first. *sigh* I also want to get the futon set up in there. *sigh*

4. Washer still isn't hooked up. We blew out the water lines Saturday and a ton of crud came out, but I guess not it all. We still have very low cold line water pressure. *sigh* I hope he runs the new lines this weekend. But I'm not going to hold my breathe.

5. DD and I will be in Chicago next weekend celebrating her birthday (which is the 26th). (Hence why THIS weekend is my final chance to power clean.)

6. I think I may buy a new suitcase before next weekend. I need one.... I just might.

7. I also may go shopping at Penny's this weekend (if I finish my chores at home) and bring Pooh's list with me. *grin*

8. I have to pee.

9. I love the number 9, it's my favorite number.

T-shirt and Scratch-n-Sniff

I got my T-shirt!!!! Woooohoo, thanks Momma! I got an authentic Gilley's t-shirt. hmmmmmm wonder if John will give me some bullriding tips. *grin*

I went to my Stampin' Up dealer's house Friday night and we made 4 scratch-n-sniff items. *giggle* I have a wedding card with a cake on it that smells like vanilla, a pumpkin box that smells like pumpkin, a beautiful card with grapes on it that yep smells like grape and a happy sunshine card that smells like orange. *grin* They were lots of fun to make. I think my Dealer drank a little too much wine though, she kept smelling her grape card and licking the grape koolaid off her fingers. *snort*

I'm really not sure what to do with all my hobby stuff. This new house is so small. *pout*

Somber event

Yesterday during my lunch hour, I stood outside our building with all my coworkers and fellow American workers from businesses next door. We watched as a hero came home.

It was a very sad, very real thing. Our troops are still dying in Iraq. Please do what you can to let our government know... we've had enough loss. Start bringing our troops home.

If you want to read about the Sgt. Scheibner, then click on the above link. There's also more stories about his death, but I will warn you... if you cry easily don't read the article from yesterday where they interview his Mom and how she was marking off the days until he was safe.
