I joined the Rec Center. NEVER in my life did I expect to be putting all of those words, in that order, in the same sentence. I'm doing something called "The Lunch Crunch". It's a series of 45 second workouts with a jog (HA!) around the gym in between. Sometimes it's killer. Sometimes it's not so bad. The only bad thing is the time of day. I sweat and my hair goes flat. Ugh. The good part? It's a small group, so sometimes it's like having a personal trainer. Love that. Right now I suck. I'm so disappointed that I've lost everything I had when I was kickboxing. But like I told the instructor - I want to get that back. I want to be that strong again. I can do this.

My Two Favorite Garfield (Jim Davis cartoon) the Cat Posters

"I'm not overweight, I'm undertall."

(Yep, that'd be me!)

"Failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part."

(Oh, so true!)

Christmas 2011 - Celebrating In Black & White (and a splash of RED)

I bought a tree on Craigslist this summer. Sight unseen. I'd say I got pretty dang lucky. It's HUGE and I love it! Not the frasier fir I had picked out (and couldn't afford), but very happy with it, just the same.
Here are a few decorative highlights.

Things I Like To Say

> Just because you can get it on, doesn't mean you should wear it.

> Some of my best sarcasm is wasted on people too stupid to understand it.

> Please don't feel the need to say everything that pops into your head.

> You can't fix stupid.

Things I'm Just Not Into

I've been going through a bunch of saved emails, mostly blogs, over the past week. I've found that people take a lot of pictures of flowers. I feel like a traitor to my gender for admitting this, but I'm not into flowers. At all. I don't own any floral print clothing. There is nothing floral or plant-like in my home. THere are no flowers in my yard. The last time my husband bought me flowers, I got mad at him.

I'm not into angels or butterflies either.

Well, there you have it. One of the random posts I promised in the previous post.

New Year - New Plan

When I started this blog, I wanted it to be a place for me to show what I'd made. I thought it should have "quality" posts. Posts with "substance". But that quickly became a chore. I thougnt I always needed a photo to coordinatewith me content.

But now it's a new year and I have a new plan. If you haven't given up on following me, thanks. I've decided that my random thoughts want a place to be heard. So, sometimes there will be crafty posts and someday there will be posts like the one I'm about to post with a different heading.

Whatever the case, stay with me, and leave comments. I love comments. Even the negative ones.

As for the current background, I'll try to get that changed. Soon. I also have Christmas pictures I want to post.

Thanks for your support. - Susan
