Ok. I apologize for being M.I.A. for a little while; but it has been for 2 WAY good reasons. PROMISE!!! First off, all my shows have ended these past two weeks. To summarize: Andy chose Tessa and I am glad. Apollo won and I am glad. Blake lost and I am sad. Susan and Mike got married and I am glad. Will Jim and Pam get together? It's quite exciting... And lastly -- what is going to happen on Grey's ... I have no idea... and it makes me mad. Now that the shows are over I realize I need something else to fill my now EMPTY evenings soooo (reason #2) --- I have been self-teaching myself how to use Photoshop... to make fun little baby announcements. It has been fun. So much fun. And I have come up with (what I think is...) some really cute stuff. I have been toying with the idea of opening a little internet business making photo cards (baby announcements, christmas cards, etc.) called... wait for it...


what do you think?

now if I could only teach myself how to create a website from scratch... that'll be next month's project...

this caused giggles. REALLY.

do this... you won't regret it.

1. go to
2. click on "maps"
3. click on "get directions"
4. type "New York" in the first box (the "from" box)
5. type "London" in the second box (the "to" box)
6. click on "get directions"
6. scroll down to step #24

"It's all too much of a muchness for me" IS my favorite line from the Trashcan Sinatras song "Circuling the Circumference"... one of my all time FAVORITE songs. It is FANTASTIC. If I knew how include a preview on this blog, I would. Daisy, any hints? :)

Any guesses...

as to where the name of my blog came from? Just wondering if anyone actually knows!!! My says it makes him nauseated just thinking about it. So I guess don't think too hard about it. But it does have meaning. Tell me if you have any guesses. I will reveal the TRUTH in my next post.

Handprints in the carpet... cheerios in my bed.

Strange title, huh? Let me explain. There are some funny little things going on in this house; consistently funny stuff!!! Some of them are annoying, some not so much... more comical. For example... every morning before work, my cute hubby (Andy-roo) does a little workout routine in the basement. Every morning he must do his push-ups in the EXACT same spot because there are two definite Andy handprints in the carpet downstairs. For some reason, it is hilarious to me. I wish there were Amy handprints down there too. Someday maybe ... or maybe not. You see -- I avoid the basement at all cost. Oh and pushups too. Another funny (more on the annoying side of things) is the fact that EVERY night when Andy and I get into bed, there are a few cheerios scattered around in the sheets. Every morning our darling little girl insists on her juice sippy and dry cheerios in our bed while watching her little show. And even though every day she promises that she "won't spill AT ALL" in mommy's and daddy's bed, there are ALWAYS little cheerios tucked here and there. Even though it gets on my nerves a tiny bit I know there will be someday when I wish there were hidden cheerios in my bed. At least I try to convince myself that this will be the case. :)

True colors.

OK... just recently I realized I have some (ok A LOT) of really embarrasing habits. Things that I might turn a little red in the face if I knew others knew what I was up to. So... rather than wait for that day when somebody figures me out I am just going to lay it out on the line. Please feel free to fess up your embarrasing habits as well. It's kind of liberating.

1. I love Hostess snack cakes. Twinkies top the list.

2. I watch and love Desperate Housewives.

3. I have lost sleep over the fact that the nearest Target is 50 minutes away. Seriously, I actually have not been able to sleep because it stresses me out so much.

4. I jam out to these songs on a daily basis: "Back for Good" (Take That) ... "Head to Toe" (Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam) ... "I Want it that way" (Backstreet Boys). now maybe it wouldn't be SO humiliating if I didn't insist on singing/dancing along. (*Think American Idol reject style.)

5. I hate washing my face. It gets done in the shower and in the shower only. (YES... I wear makeup to bed. GASP.)

6. When putting ANYTHING away in my house, I don't simply put it where it goes. I survey the whole area (closet, drawer) and try to come up with a "better" organizing system for that area. Quite often I end up tearing the whole thing apart and starting over. It's a sickness, really, and big fat waste of time!

There are plenty more and I will add as I see fit... but I need to start making beds and cleaning up (in other words, ripping closets apart... haha)

Broken BlogSpot!

not really... turns out I couldn't do any editing to the good old blog while on the MAC (why -- no clue!!!) BUT trying out the old, reliable p.c. proved to be a good choice... ta-da! A new look and some links to my blog friends :) Thanks Dais FOR YOUR HELP!!!! Now just gotta fix the old Mac. ????

Can anyone HELP ME?

OK. You all know by now that "I have no idea what I'm doing." But here's the thing; I want to figure out this blogging stuff. Seriouly. I didn't think I did, but I am shocked to realize that I do. Here is the deal. I can't figure out how to make my blog page all cool like the rest of you dang bloggers (for example -- listing other cool blogs, listing your favorite stuff, etc.) I thought I got it figured out BUT nope, I didn't. Any help would be GREATLY and seriously appreciated.
