I made a scrapbook of the kids for David to keep with him while he is in Afghanistan. I had it laminated and spiral bound. Here are the pages......I really like the way it turned out.

A girl and her power tools.....'s a beautiful thing.

So yesterday, I decided that I would trim my hedges. Usually, I just hire someone to do it. But I'm especially poor right now, so I decided to give it a hand myself. I think I did pretty well....but the proof's in the pudding, so to speak.

In case....

Just in case anyone actually reads this - I have another date with Jon on Saturday (, technically....) at 6pm. I can't wait!

Thursday, June 24, 2010


Ok so this is what happened:

On Tuesday, I was in the break room and Jon came down from the other building (it's quite a trek for a 15 min break - they don't usually do that) to get something to eat from Atlanta Bread (they cater in on Tuesdays and Saturdays) so I said hi. So he stopped and talked to me for quite a while -- big deal, because it could make him late for his break. So I decided to be "brave" and emailed him - "Listen....would you like to go out for coffee or something sometime". Long story short - he changed the coffee into "proper vittles" and asked if I wanted to go to Ruby Tuesday. OF COURSE I did!!!

So I met him at RT yesterday at 6pm for supper. We were there until about 8ish, and the waitress was creeping on us so I said "Hey....wanna go downtown or something" and he said sure. so we did. So we went downtown and we talked and talked and talked (yes, we. I tried not to dominate the conversation). So in part of it, he was talking about how it makes him feel sad that all of his friends are getting married and having kids. So I agreed, and said something about how God's timing is right - or that's what my mother always says. Then I said something about how at least he's a guy and he can do the asking. So he said "Yeah...not all guys feel that way". So I said "I guess far it's worked out for me!!" LOL -- ROFL!!!

What did we talk about, you ask? Oh....books, movies, books that were made in to movies, we dabbled in philosophy (well...he dabbled....I listened), college, work, pretty much a lot of different stuff. Finally, I realized that it was 11:30, and as I had to work today I said that as much as I didn't want to, I needed to head home.

So on the way home, I noticed that Mom had called me. So I said "Oh...I wonder what my mother will say when she finds out how late I was coming home. Oh - what will YOUR mother say?" SO he goes "She'll probably say 'good for you'". LOL!!! So I was like " you keep all the girls out this late?" And he said no and laughed. So anyways we were talking on the way home and stuff. Then when we got home, before we got out of the car, he said that he wanted to let me know he had a really great time and he was really glad we went out. So, of course, I told him the same thing. Because I did -- I had an AMAZING time!! And I was like "OH....I have a present for you!" He said, "Really?!" Yes. I had taken cupcakes to work on Wednesday, so I saved him a couple. I was going to bring it to him at work today, but he was off today so I gave them to him last night. I think he was pleasantly surprised. And so I gave him them. So then, he said "I'm glad you emailed me. Because I wouldn't have said anything otherwise". Because he is SUPER SHY!! And he said that we needed to do something like that again really soon. So I told him that sounded good, and not to be one of those guys who waits for like two days to call or something, because I don't like that.

So seriously....a 6 hour date with a really shy guy? That is pretty impressive!! And it wasn't like it was a long, drawn out date. It went by SOOOOO fast!!! And I really like this guy - a lot!! He is super, SUPER nice!!! So I am trying not to get too excited about it - but I have a really good feelin. And I'm praying about it.

So that's it....the end. Or the beginning.....

Some news

I have some news. I got cats. I have two cats.

Mocha is a Sealpoint Ragdoll, who is a little over a year old. When you pick a Ragdoll up, they go limp like a ragdoll...hence the name. Another breed trait is that they like their bellies to be rubbed, just like a dog. It's so funny....Mocha will come and lay by me and roll over on her belly so I can pet it. LOL

Chai is a Chocolate point Siamese, who is about 14 weeks right now. I really love Siamese kittens....they always just look like they've been playing in the soot!! Mom always had a Siamese cat when I was growing up, so I have decided to continue the tradition.
