I must say that I had a wonderful time last night at my class, I found out that people read my blog regularly but don't post at all on it, post every now and then let me know you're out there.
I'm trying to think of what all came into the store lately, I know it's been boxes and boxes, sometimes the Fedx guy sees us twice a day. I know Bazzill is in the new dotted cardstock and it's on sale 35% off. Lots of new Halloween, the new Kimberly Poloson is just beautiful. There is just so much new you just need to come in a see it all.
Have fun. I have to go make something pretty.

As some of you already know I lost my husband, Larry, to prostate cancer 11 years ago this month. Larry was 52 when he was diagnosed and it had only been a little over a year since his last physical. Since our medical coverage did not include coverage for a PSA (a $40 blood test) his physician did not think it critical to order this test since there was no family history of cancer. Not a good idea. I knew almost nothing about prostate cancer at the time. One of my grandfather's friends had died of it, but I had no idea that in younger men (under 65) this is an incredibly fast moving, deadly disease. During Larry's battle we met men in their 30's with prostate cancer, some who also lost their lives. As women we know that breast cancer kills, but prostate cancer does too, and sometimes, like breast cancer, without any outward signs that something is wrong until it's too late.
As a way to inform and raise awareness Kate has found an organization called US Too International that is raising funds for research and support. They have designated September 19th as the second annual Sneakers @ Work Day. For a $10 donation you will receive a pair of Blue Shoelaces to wear in your shoes or around your neck or???
I know this is close to our Scrap Pink Weekend, but I'd like to take the first steps here to educate and inform about this disease. Our Friday Night Crop on the 19th is our 1st Blue Shoelaces Crop and the price is $15. $10 will go to US Too International.
Make your donation and pick up your Shoelaces by Thursday September 18th and you will receive a Blue Shoelaces Early Bird Coupon Book. 8 coupons good from September 19-21, 2008.
Wear your shoelace in the store on Friday the 19th and get a coupon good for $5 off a $20 purchase.
Wear them during the crop and we'll have something extra special for you:)
This is straight from her blog, please help, some may not know that my Grandfather right now is battling this, and I will be wearing my blue laces for him and everyone else who has lost the battle.

Ok back to this weekend. Well I think I spent all day Friday buying food for the kids to go back to school and get the last of the supplies we hope that are needed. I'm sure that there are a few things Tim will need but we'll get those lists from the teachers. His history paper is finally done that he has had all summer to do, yes he had AP History homework over the summer. Tim got a job Friday, he wanted one all summer and now that he has to go back to school he has a job.
Jon and I spent Sunday buying a new TV and entertainment system, let's just say I'm still looking for that winning lotto ticket Jon has somewhere. All I have to say it thank goodness for warrenties, we bought the warrenty and needed it already, well actually don't know if we needed it or not. The first TV we got had a gas leak so once we got it up on the wall, mind you this is a 58 inch plasma so it was NOT easy to get up on the wall then we had to box it up bring it back to the store get another one and yet hang it up on the wall. We got it up on the wall and watching it. Then I started cleaning my fish tank, ok it's Jon's fish tank but I seem to be the one taking care of it, so let's just say the fish may like swimming in the water but I'm sure they don't want me sitting in it anymore, and as far as that goes I don't want to sit in it either, it really wasn't planned the first time.
I was suppose to get my Christmas cards done for class this weekend, but not one got done, I know it's still early sorta so maybe I could get a couple done before bed, but dinner also needs to be cooked and rinsing my undies out in the fish tank, from the above accident doesn't count as cleaning the clothes, so that too needs to be done. So I guess I have miles to go before I sleep.
