Well it's

still the same around here damage wise, the tree is still laying across the yard and the town is still recovering, there are Disaster Service vehicles at homes all over, lots of people lost their basements. I am so thankful that the tree was our biggest loss and that it missed the house when it fell!

On a happy note, I went for a girls weekend away with Patti and Elia last weekend to Ohio. I got al little scrappin stuff that I hadn't seen anywhere around me and a lot of Christmas gifts for the kids. It's hard to believe it's just 8 weeks away!!! We went to the Cracker Barrel for breakfast out last day there and WOW!!! if you've never been to a Cracker Barrel you really should go what a totally neat place!!! We had a million laughs and a Forest Gump waiter at dinner one night, I got a Starbucks Chai latte which is a big deal cause the closest one to me is a 30 min drive, alittle to far to go for coffee :)

I'm still deciding whether or not i want to enter HOF for Creating Keepsakes magazine, just not confident enough yet, but i do have some ideas floating around in my head!! We'll see what happens!!!

84 hours without power!!! and snow in October!

My poor tree

Friday morning

Well after 84 hours without power, things are getting back to normal, I got up at 5 when the power came on this morning to tackle the mountain of laundry that built up over the past 4 days. The kids and I spent 2 nights at my mom's staying warm and entertained while Dan held down the house and his parents house 5 min away, They picked the perfect time to go on vacation!!!
We had to go to Burlington to get a generator as there wasn't one anywhere to be found in this area!
I am tired and do not know how people lived without power so many years ago, it is something we sure take for granted! and this morning I couldn't love anyone more than the hydro guys who have been working round the clock to restore power to our home and city!!!

How can it

already be October? This year has truly flown by. I started my Christmas shopping yesterday, Walmart has some gret deals on stuff for their anniversary sale!!! I'm trying to get my neice a TMX Elmo for Xmas, good luck with that Auntie Kim, LOL. I can't believe the price of them on EBAY, WOW it's crazy what people will pay for one toy and in a year or 2 they will be all over Value Villiage and garage sales just like the ones ten years ago.

I'm very excited about the scrapbooking forum that my dear friend Patti set up it has a great forum and a storefront, which i had the pleasure of choosing some merchandise for if your a scrapbooker be sure to check it out here!!!
