Blah Blah Blogging Along

Friday, April 27, 2007


I want to start off by saying I am no Christina Renee or Jessica Bolton but because of the wonderful kits these two and many other ladies put together for a little boy named Miles and his mom I had to do a PIF (play it forward). I wanted it to be big and so this is what I came up with. I'd love to see if anyone uses it so if you do please come back and link up here! I'm a bit nervous because I've never even thought I would make a kit, I just love to scrap but decided I would at least give it a whirl. Anyway here is the preview:

And here is the download link:

Enjoy my PIF and remember come link me up if you use it!

Happy Friday!

Tagged and a new Header

September tagged me! Here's how it works:
Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to blog about their seven things and post the rules as well. At the end of your post, choose 7 people to tag and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog! OK, here goes...
1) I am an only child. I wanted a sibling for most of my life except for a small time when my mom got married and talked about having another child. I freaked! It was more because I didn't think she was in the right health to have another baby but was being pushed by her much younger husband at the time. Everyone thought it was me being selfish.
2) I have lived in Massachusetts, Maryland, Alabama, Ohio Hawaii and my current home is in New Hampshire. I hope to move one more time in my life to somewhere warm year round!
3) I was in a beauty pagaent when I was 16 and came in the semi-finalists.
4) My husband was my high school sweetheart.
5) I am a neat freak and drive myself and everyone in my house crazy because of it.
6) I am very spoiled and high maintenance. I hate that fact about me but can't seem to change it.
7) I have had a migraine for a week now!
So there are my very boring facts! I'm tagging, Rachael, Shawna, Kristi, Mary, Dawne, Rach, and Jodene.
Happy Typing girls! And everyone have a great day!

What do I need

Got this from Kristi. Basically it's just entering your name and 'needs' in a google search. Pretty funny. Here is my list of needs:
1) Plastic Pam Needs Sperm Donor (well considering my DH is now snipped...)
2) Pam needs no net to net a man! (damn I'm good!)
3) Pam Needs a Bigger Bra! (This one had me rolf)
4) Pam Needs Our Help. (Finally someone to help me!)
5) Pam needs something in between (Guess that wouldn't have anything to do with needing a bigger bra?)
6) Pam needs some of these (yes, I do!)

Thanks for the laugh Kristi!

More Flooding for the Northeast

I heard on the news today 3 floods in 18 months. That's not something you want to hear. What is that telling us?
Yesterday I got to work at 7:30 only to be called back home at 9 to pick up Jake who wasn't feeling well. Now there were several reasons I didn't want to go home, one being that I was out sick most of last week myself, two, it was flipping windy and I didn't want to be home if a tree came down, and three I knew I'd find water in my basement when I got there!
Third one was not fun, I had to bail the water out by carrying 5 gallon buckets as full as I could handle (water is not light) up the basement stairs to the kitchen sink to dump it. So not fun! But I only had to do it for a little while as my DH came home with a new pump and took over! Now the basement is dry and I'm feeling bad for all those people who have been evacuated from their homes and have lost much more. I don't know why I complained! It's a mess out there!
I'm hoping I can get thru the whole day at work today! Fingers crossed! Have a great Tuesday!

Not Much To Say

I've been in bed sick for three days now. I went to the doc yesterday and I have a sinus infection and a bad cold. I'm hacking constantly, feverish and to top it all off I puked up my antibiotics right after I took them yesterday! I've got nothing interesting to say except I've used more tissues in three days than I have in a year! But hey I updated so at least you all know I'm not dead!
Have a great day!

I won a TV! On Friday afternoon at work! What a great way to end the week! We had a bunch of vendors in, Verizon Wireless, a gym, the Credit Union, Costco and Dell! Well there was a drawing for a 26" LCD flat screen TV and I won! I couldn't believe it! Here is a photo of my very cool prize!
We put it in our bedroom and it's awesome!
In other news we had a great day yesterday, with a hunt for very full Easter baskets and then 75 eggs. Then off to my Godmother's house where there were 13 of us for dinner and about 10 more came in for dessert. It was a great afternoon and we were all wiped when we got home. I got some great photos of the hunt and the basket opening but can you believe I didn't take a photo of my boys looking all neat and clean in their easter outfits! And Jake was even sporting a new "DO" too! What was I thinking? I also ate way too much and today is the beginning of a serious diet! I have got to lose about 15 pounds and start exercising no excuses! After a photo DH took of my with my cousins yesterday I realized how flipping much weight I have gained and I do not like it at all! So that was the only bad part of yesterday, that reality slap. I haven't decided if I'm going to do WW or South Beach yet but I am starting off today with a hard boiled egg and a cheese stick so it will work for either! ;)

And that's all my ramblings for today! Have a great Monday!

SNOW in April?!!

We got a nasty winter storm last night and woke up to about 5" today! It's April and Spring for crying out loud! Not a very nice belated April Fools Joke considering it's NO JOKE!
This is what it looks like on my deck right now:
So last night while it was snowing and the boys and I were home alone since Michael was plowing we colored eggs. I have to share the one I made is Pink with Brown flowers of course! I had to take a photo of it before I ate it for breakfast this morning! LOL!

So while it's not very Springy outside my house it sure is inside! ;) Have a great day!

DSS Blog Challenge

I need to blog about something has given you a feeling or experience of adventure lately for the Digi Scrap Shak April 1 Blog challenge! I have to say that I can't think of one thing! I'm not a very adventurist type. The closest thing I can say is that I used real cardboard on a paper page because I love using it on my digi pages so much I had to see if I liked it as much IRL! LOL!

I've got my first sketch challenge up over at DSS starting today! I hope enough people like the template to do my challenge! I'm no Rachael Giallongo or Jen Caputo! Love you girls! ;) I'm taking it over for another girl that's about to have a baby and has too much going on to keep it going so hopefully the members will be OK with the change! I'd be pretty sad if no one did it!

We went out to get Easter clothes and eggs today. Just boiled them and we'll color them later I think, depending on how the boys are getting along! Man all they do is bicker! I am so not used to it! Being an only child I had no one to bicker with! UGH! I also picked them up some rubber boots to play in the mud with! They are water and mud magnets so I figured the boots would be better than having to wash sneakers once a week!

OK, I'm off to do some digi stuff! Have a great Sunday!
