My pug in action!

Created with Gifboom

My niece is always showing new apps I would have never searched for. She introduced me to this app and I made a gif of Phoebe.

Looking for a REAL man!

In the last month, I have been stopped by three different men to tell me I am beautiful. One was at Wal-mart, the second was downtown (the rose panhandler), and the third was while walking down the street today.

I went to the C-street loft walk which I try to go to every year.  I just love seeing the different lofts and how people decorate their lofts.  I have a few ideas of stuff I would like to do.  One loft I went to I recognized a guy in the pictures and it was his girlfriend!  I like their loft the best with all the decor.

I was walking back to my car and this guy driving down the street was staring at me.  He parks his car down the street, not far from my car and approaches me.  He introduced his self to me and then preceded to tell me that I caught his eye while walking down the street.  He was wondering if we could go out and have a drink to see if there was a spark between us.  Very flattering but he just didn't seem like my type.  I was curious his age because he seemed younger than me by quite a few years.  He asked for my number but I asked if I could have his number instead.  I could tell he was a smoker which is a turn off to me.  I could just smell it!

The guy I meet at Wal-mart seemed like a decent guy but he didn't ask for my phone number.  He just told me that my husband was very lucky to have such a beautiful wife.  I was shocked and didn't say I was single.  He might have been a real man but I was to shy to say anything.

I am hanging out at the Mudhouse and looking forward to go home and see Dexter!  I am interested on how this season will go!

Summer is winding down

I can't believe that summer is technically over!!  School is back in season and the weather is cooling off a little.  This summer was too HOT!!  We had about 2 months of 100+ weather.  I like summer but this was a bit too much.

In June, I had a 3 week vacation that was great!  I went to St. Louis for CKC and also got my first out-of-state geocache.  I also had a goal to get at least 30 geocaches in June and I got 35!  My nieces and I went geocaching for a day and we found lots of ticks!!  We decided to wait on crawling in the woods till tick season is over.

July brought lots of sadness for me.  I lost my cat Chloe.  I came home from work on morning and she was dead in the hallway.  She was just fine before I left for work that night.  She had been fighting hyperthyroidism but her levels were finally in optimal range and she seemed to be doing better.  It was quite the shock for me.  I have been wanting to make a blog post in regards to this.

Navy Pier
Then in the middle of July, I traveled to Elburn, IL to see my Scrap Jammie friends!  One was traveling all the way from Australia!  We even took a day trip to Chicago which was a blast!!!  I need to order pictures and get to scrapbooking them!

I got back from my trip and my A/C wasn't able to keep up with the 100+ weather.  It is leaking freon and I need a new system.  They at least got it working for me but I need to start saving $$$$ for a new unit.  Ugh!!  At least the weather has cooled off to the 80's to 90's which is nice.

August I have been working on getting my house better organized, especially my extra bedroom!  I made good progress but still have lots to do.  I have lots of stuff I just need to get rid of.

I am hanging out at the Mudhouse trying to stay caffeinated!!

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Getting used to blogger changes

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App

I noticed about a month ago that blogger has changed how you post a blog.  My dashboard is all different and a little confusing.  I am trying to get used to it.

I would like to give my blog a lift but unsure what to do.  If things look funny, that is why.  I might try out a few looks and see what happens.


Zombie apocalypse here?

I walked into my favorite coffee shop downtown and the barista was talking about this in the news:

How the Zombie Apocalypse starts!

You can find several other articles along with youtube videos of this incident.

Then doing more searches on zombies online I found this.  Hmmmm . . . . .

I did watch a special once about zombies I believe from the History channel.  They say that the zombie virus was a mutation of the rabies virus and they are trying to do this.  Why?  I am not sure.  I believe I need to get prepared and read my Zombie Survival Guide!!

I took this photo when in 2010 when zombies came to my town to dance to Michael Jacksons Thriller!

New Years Day!

The new year has started out with family and friends!  I was happy this year that I didn't have to work New Year Eve or New Years day.  One of the cons of being a nurse is having to worry about being off the holidays.


Last night I went to my sisters and we hung out together.  Our plan was to dance to Just Dance, Michael Jackson Experience and do some Zumba.  My niece and cousin was chatting online with people from other countries.  Then my sister ended up falling asleep on the couch!  I have picked up learning how to knit again and brought a project I had recently started.  It was 1am before I knew it!  I was ready to leave about 0130 and my niece told me I couldn't leave!  They did get Just Dance Summer Party out and they did some dancing.  Then I decided to leave after 0200 as I wanted to have some sleep!  I didn't last long when I got home.


I slept today until 1430!  I woke up to 4 texts on my phone which the last one getting me up.  My sister texted me asking if I wanted to come to dinner.  I went to dinner at my sisters.  She had also invited our parents.  It was a fun family evening!  I also made plans with my nieces later in the week for some afternoon vintage fun!

I am bummed that I have to work tomorrow but then I get a couple of days off.  I do enjoy working 12 hours shifts and having more days off in the week.  It helps keep me sane!

Till next time . . . .
