It's not a monday...

....but I have random thoughts in my head. So it's time for a miscellaneous list, mmmmkay?

-I just spent approximately 2 more hours of my life uploading pictures from my computer onto CDs. These are the pictures I need from the last 1.5 years of my life to complete our album. I could have sworn I didn't take too many pictures over the last year and a half. I thought I only planned a freaking wedding and moved, but I guess I still took pictures because I'm sufficiently overwhelmed right now. I have a funny feeling that this "catch up" for our scrapbook may eat me alive.

-If I survive, I think I might do something a little wild. I may offer my scrap-booking services to some of you girls for free. I'd only ask to be reimbursed for the supplies I buy, but other than that I may just do it for fun. And to see if I like making scrapbooks for other people. If so, I may just TRY and start a little side business. But that's only if I don't die making my own. Any takers out there?

-Speaking of being overwhelmed....I managed to get 87 blogs on my Google Reader. It was too much and I'd waste too much time reading them all after work. So I downsized to 64 and feel very proud about this. Someday maybe I'll update my blog list on the right column. We'll see.

-Does anyone else think that people falling down is the FUNNIEST thing ever? Some of you may know that it's my weakness. It will always make me laugh to see someone bite it [as long as they are okay, of course.] Well yesterday morning, I was getting ready for work and heard this piercing scream outside, followed by an, "Ouch, ouch, ouch." Then I heard sobbing and mumbling of words. I thought, "Did someone just bite it outside on the ice? And are they talking and crying to themselves right now?" Just as my husband emerged from his slumber, we both went to the window to see our upstairs neighbor pull herself from the ground. I thought, "Ooooh, maybe I should go check on her to see if she is alright." But all of a sudden she threw herself into her car and sped off. Okay? I guess she wasn't all that injured. And why was she talking to herself after the fall? Seriously, she bugs the hell out of me for some reason [oh wait, I remember why....because she is one of those overly nice, peppy, and annoying girls. I also have a sneaking suspicion that she flirts with Nate a little too much. I will kick her arse if I have to, but apparently she can do that on her own]. So it's really funny to me. Does that make me a bad person?

-Tomorrow is friday. Some Ecards has a few freaking hilarious 'weekend' cards on there, but most of them include the F-bomb. Although the F word makes every card a little bit funnier to me, I cannot in good morals post one of them. So here is a backup:

-Speaking of Some Ecards, remember how one of my big ideas was to write for them? Well I had some really great ideas the other night. And now my geriatric mind lost them all. So why don't you help me fill in the blanks. You guys have to have some good ideas, right?
1. My New Years resolutions include: ________________________
2. I'm sorry, you must think I'm a person who ____________________
3. I should be exercising right now, but instead __________________
4. You strike me as the type of person who ____________________
5. Sometimes you remind me of _________________

- Go Packers, go! They play their first playoff game this Saturday and I expect you all to cheer for Favre. You have to admit he's a freaking hottie for being 38 years old. Henry will certainly be donning his jersey, Nate will be screaming at the TV, and I'll be pretending to watch the game while I'm on my computer:)

-I have an illness. It's called "I can't resist posting every day." I don't know why because most of the time I don't plan on posting each night. It just kind of happens. Does that make me a loser?

-My mom emailed me some pictures of their "wedding tree." No, it's not a Christmas tree because it's too skinny to qualify. But she liked their Christmas tree so much she wanted to use the wedding flowers and ribbon all year. So she went out and bought this little guy to keep up all year. It doesn't resemble a Christmas tree at all, right?
She scanned each picture from her wedding album and put them in frames. She doesn't help my "moving on from the wedding" cause, either. Love ya, mom!
-A new pet peeve: Michelob Ultra commercials. Why does everyone have to be running and exercising? It's not like I want to go for a jog and then down a Mich Ultra [not usually, at least.] Just because it has a few less calories doesn't make it healthy. Or a sports drink. Pay attention to the next commercial you see and it will annoy you, too, I hope:)


  1. I have 4 years worth of pics on my computer that I need to do something with. I was considering making photobooks of them... like digital ones...
    I actually thought of asking you to make a scrapbook for me (and offering to pay you), but I didn't want to seem like a stalker... :)
    That's when I decided maybe I'll make them from a digital site... would you make those kind? You're all into layouts and everything..
    Bless you for introducing me to Google Reader! But I have 66 on there and I can't get rid of any of them! I didn't even know what a blog was 2 months ago!!

  2. Nikki~I'd consider doing a digital scrapbook for you. It would be easier and within my comfort zone to do a traditional scrapbook with prints, but I've been wanting to convert to digital, anyway. So the answer is or traditional. I will email you when I'm caught up on my own and we can talk!

  3. Julia - I completely relate... I'm 2 years behind on my scrapbooking!

  4. First, let me say that I would love for you to do a scrapbook for me if you need the practice:). Second, Yes people falling down is absolutely funny. Remember America's Funniest Home Videos...every video was of someone falling of getting racked. And last but not least the cards. I could only come up with something for 1 and 2. #1 eating more and neglecting my TV less. #2 cares what you think. The second one is probably pretty cliche but it was the first thing that popped into my head.

  5. Julia - I would totally pay you to make me a scrapbook! Please oh please let me know if you decide to do this!!!

    I just bought myself a digital scrapbooking program, but I haven't had time to play with it at all. Have you tried one out yet?

  6. Amanda~good job with the SomeEcards! I likey.

    Jenn~Yes, I'm serious. I will let you know when I am finished with my own. I haven't played with any digi scrapbooking sites just yet. I like playing around with papers in photoshop, though.

  7. First, I would love you to scrapbook for me. I have really good intentions to do it, and buy all the stuff, then never do it. Second, I LOOOOVE watching people fall, especially on roller blades, going downhill. Third, what do you mean that Favre looks hot, for being 38? Wha wha what? Is 38 that old? Be careful, it comes fast. I remember being 24 like it was last week. And when you're 38, you won't feel a day over 30. Oh, and yes, Favre is a hot biscuit.

  8. Love the wedding tree!

    And no, posting every night doesn't make you a loser - it makes you a good blogger! I wish I could post every night, I just can't bring myself to do it on some nights ...
