Knock on Wood

ok, the SSD Blog challenge is about being sick …. but I am knocking on wood because we have managed to avoid most bugs this year:

1. How often do you get sick with a cold? The flu? Something else? I rarely get sick. After working in child care so long my immunities all buffed up.

2. Are you the sort of person who goes to work or school no matter how sick you are or are you willing to stay at home when it gets bad? For the most part, yes. Unless it is something that is going to get others sick

3. How do you like to treat a cold? What remedies do you like and why? Do you go to the doctor willingly? I hate having a runny/stuff nose and I have found that Claritin D eliminates that symptom pretty well. I don’t go to the doctor unless I have a high temp and not getting better.

4. What do you do to keep from getting sick in the winter? Honestly … nothing. No flu shots, no bottle of hand sanitizer. Nothing.

5. What is your favorite thing to do when you stay home from work or school? Scrap!! Of Course!!

ok, only doing this for the SSD Blog challenge:

You Are a Moderate Mama

You’re not overly political, and your views fall more with the American mainstream.

In fact, it may be difficult for you to decide who to vote for at times!

Your approach to politics is reasoned and well though out.

V-Day Wrap Up

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I took a quiz from the SSD Blog and only got 2 out of 10 so I must not know a lot about Valetine’s Day LOL! This year was my first with Bill though, so that made it special. It wasn’t a perfect day – but in the end I have some very sweet memories. Here is my layout with the roses I got from him:

Movies! Movies! Movies!

I love movies, I must have over a hundred DVD’s and that is NOT counting the kids movies (which is probably another 50 at least) PLUS I have a Blockbuster account so I get movies from them in the mail AND I return them to my local Blockbuster to get another free rental. Right now I have been catching up on my favorite TV shows on DVD. (You know since the writer’s strike ruined this season)
Currently I have:
Friends Season 4
October Road Season 1
Desperate Housewives Season 2
The Office Season 1
The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 1

What do I do besides scrap?

Man there are some days when I feel like I do nothing but scrap (but I wouldn’t say that too loud around the office) LOL.

I am luck to have taken over as the office manager for our family business when my mom retired due to health problems.

It is a wonderful job and I love my boss (he is my dad after all). I am in the office alone most days. As long as I get my daily work done I am able to play around online and post my layouts and such.

Before I took over the position full time I worked half a day and stayed at home in the mornings with my kids. Now that my oldest is in Kindergarten (full day) it was easier to make the transition to full time.

I still miss my lazy mornings with the kids crawling into my bed, but we still get that on the weeknds they are home.
