Well, I don't know what to write about today. I am really tired. I think I am getting sick, again. I just want to crawl into bed and take a nap, but Ella won't let me!!

Carleen--Digital Scrapbooking can be a little addictive. You need photo editing software, such as Photoshop elements, I got mine off of Here is the free trial through adobe The down side is that it is a chunk of money to start, $85-$100. I use sites like and and they have some freebie products and some tutorials on how to layer items. I need to start working on it again. Along with my paper scrapbooking, which I will be working on tonight at our monthly scrapbooking night at church. Although mostly we just talk =).

Mom, you are more then welcome to read without responding! Although, it is nice to know that people have seen my posts. Of course isn't the point of a blog supposed to be anonymous? How am I supposed to express my deep dark secrets with everyone reading and knowing them??!!

Jesi, have you started your blog yet??

Alright, I need to go put MORE laundry away. A game, she really did lose her mind with all us kids!

Where is a Mac Guy when you need him?

Well, my apple eMac is dead. Won't turn on. Yes it is plugged in! It is only 3 years old, it should be lasting alot longer then that right? It has been acting funny lately, so I guess I should have gotten it looked at. We (I) don't use it that often, since my desk it full of clutter and it is just easier to use the laptop, and I do my digi scraping on the hp. Yes, we have 3 computers. The HP had died, and so we got the apple. Then the HP got fixed, yeah for warrenties, and this summer James 'needed' a laptop, but I love it and use it alot more then he does.

So are there any Mac Smaties out there or do I need to make a trip into town next week. It was 'seizing' up on me whenever it was in screen saver mode. Maybe I burnt it out by leaving it on too long? I hope it doesn't cost too much to fix. The don't have too much on there, I think. I put my pics on both pc's so I don't have to worry about that, but the apple had some auto fills that I wanted to use today (can't remember the password for my student loan account!). Otherwise I has probably been 2 months since I last used the mac.

Okay, that's all for now. I have to put away the laundry that I washed yesterday. Love ya, bye!

The Laundry Files

I HATE laundry! I have washed 4 loads so far today and have 2 1/2 loads left. Plus I have 3 loads from last week left to fold and put away. Of course, if you know me, I don't do laundry like mainstream America...I do it the LoveToResellGymbo way!

That involves sorting into whites, towels, darks & lights. Darks and Lights get washed in cold, and then most of them get hung to dry. I have 2 wooden racks in my dining room and about 8 feet of closet shelving in the Laundry room to hang tops with hangers. On the drying racks I put the kids jeans and other pants, my pants, my tops, sweaters, tights and special socks.

I know people think I am crazy for putting so much effort into my laundry, but hey, when you can resell a used outfit for a few dollars less then you (or grandma in my case, love you mom!) paid for it, why not!

Then I can buy new stuff, and who doesn't like new stuff?! So, I guess I should like laundry then, huh?

My 3 Cuties

Alright! Here I am Missy!

I have 3 great kids. They are

James aka Bubba - Only boy, poor kid, and we make him be nice to his little sisters. He is currently in 1st Grade and doesn't love it as much as Kindergarten. But he is super smart! He is one of the highest readers in his class, loves spelling words and is good at math too! (So were me and Big James so that has to be expected, right) His favorite thing to do right now is playing Need for Speed on the Gamecube that he got for Christmas. He kicked Daddy's butt last night playing it. His favorite day is Saturday, because he can spend all his free time playing it.

Bailey Bug is in Kindergarten. She, in my opinion, is the cutest girl in the whole school. She had a little boy in her class who begged to be her 'boyfriend', but we had to crush him and say that she isn't allowed to have a boyfriend until she was 16. She drives me crazy, but James says that is because we are sooo much alike, WHATEVER. I am not stubborn or sarcastic or bossy or demanding! She is currently learning how to read. She love to say words that she recognizes. Her favorite word is love.

Ella. Well she is probably the one I will blog most
about. She is the kid we weren't supposed to have! I swear she is Carleen's kid! She is a monkey, a talker, a laugher, and a cutie pie munchkin! She gets into everything. We know have a pink spot in the basement carpet because of her. Ink bottle meet Ella. Carpet meet ink bottle. Good Times! She currently loves to watch TV and read books. Her favorite color yesterday was yellow, and then it was red and black. And her favorite Princess is the Little Mermaid, Ariel. But I am sure all will change shortly. Her birthday is coming up in April. She is very excited, and tells everyone that it is her birthday, and I then need to correct her and say not yet! She loves to drive everyone crazy, and is very good at it.
As for me, I like to ebay, buy gymboree clothes, digital scrapbook, regular scrapbook, and anything that keeps me from cleaning. I hate cleaning...always have, always will.
Okay, all for now. Need to go out and buy James a new, well, new to him, truck.

Hi CyberFriends!

I don't know why I didn't do this sooner! Probably because I will forget and only update this once a month. Oh well. See you all online!
