pop, pop, fizz, fizz...

oh what a relief it is. so glad that the holidays are over. gosh, i'm a grinch. totally didn't want them to come along and now they are gone i couldn't be happier. the tree is coming down today. nick is currently tangled in the lights. he couldn't find the end of the strand. it's a giant one. i think 5 lights all hooked together. kinda funny watching him be so flustered!

have had a little respite at work too. one of my docs is on vacation. makes for slower days. ahhh. all around slow down.

my big news.. we bought a lot. pretty hefty christmas gift to ourselves but it is ours! dont' have to have it paid off for three years. so we can hem and haw for a bit if we choose. have a crummy picture. will share when i finally get my lazy self to upload photos! might actually break ground before march. depends on a lot. so still have a lot to do but i feel better owning that chunk of land.. even if things don't work out.

so now that b word is back in my vocabulary. well, not really. i swear sometimes i think it's worse than the f bomb. but seriously. trying to behave. so far so good. even made so unnecessary cutbacks here and there. every little bit will help and i'm gonna try my darndest!

finally scrapping again. after a two month hiatus. nice to have a deadline looming over your head to get your bootay in gear. oh and in scrapping news. check out your local j's. they have the cutest rhonna farrar stamps by autumn leaves. clear, acrylic. one dollar. kid you not. totally made me want one of each. but alas, the budget. i only bought four sets and some herma tabs with my 40% off coupon. so less than $10 for the lot. ;o) dude, did i just sound like i was in harry potter. and did i just type dude? seirously.

Yay on the lot! Hopefully this has now settled your bubble gut :) Looks like Brandy and I are a lot alike, dude & the f-bomb are second nature to me. Like a sailor I tell you!

Fuckin' A! I already hate my budget.
