Thank You’s

Thank you to all the ladies who stopped by yesterday from SITS for “Open Letter” day.  I’ll be coming back to visit your blogs later.  Was a bad night at work last night and I’m going to bed.  I’ll “see” you all later.



Friday’s Blessings 11/21/08

  • Gas is down below $2.00 a gallon here.  Thank God for that, for a while there it was pretty hairy and not fun at all.  I just wonder how long it will last?  I can remember when I thought $1.47 a gallon was SUPER expensive to be paying for gas.
  • Went to the dentist on Wednesday….a much more “enjoyable” experience than the last dentist I was at.  I have to get my wisdom teeth pulled but I guess that’s a “small” price to pay.
  • I haven’t heard from a single soul all week and it feels GREAT.  Some times my brother calls me just to annoy me and he’s really great at it to say the least.
  • I’m just about done with all of my Christmas shopping!
  • I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but Hugh Jackman was named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”  He’s defiantely not bad to look at that’s for sure.
  • The weather has been really not the greatest around here…cold has heck with occasional snow showers thrown in to shake things up a bit…..the upside is that there are only a little over 3 months or so until it starts getting nice again!

An Open Letter to “Mother Nature”

Today is open letter day on SITS, here is mine.  Short and sweet.  I actually wrote this awhile ago but never actually posted it.

Dear “Mother Nature,”

Why must you do this to me?  I really don’t enjoy being “tortured” for several days once a month – I really hate the “Beached Whale” feeling too.  I’m sure that the people around me don’t enjoy me becoming a borderline homicidal manic either.   I Though they all seem to have a death wish at the time.  So please explain to me why we women have to suffer like this?  It’s totally uncool and quite frankly it’s borderline cruel.  So I’m going to hold a long-time grudge and leave you with this……To quote Happy Bunny…..You Suck and THAT’s Sad.

An unhappy “customer”

Just a quick note and then on to “Wordless Thursday”

I have moved my cooking blog from here on wordpress to blogger.  The new address is I hope you’ll drop by and visit me.  Have a great Thursday everybody!

P.S. I will be keeping the wordpress address just in case I have problems again.

Wordless Thursday

The Queen and The Princess


I found this over at Razor Family Farms and I thought I’d do it here on my blog too…It’s kinda cute! 🙂

1.)  What breed are you?

Laci – I’m a blonde Cocker Spaniel and a darn cute one to boot!

Shawna – I’m a Black Lab/Cocker Spaniel mix….I’m the dark haired beauty of the family.


2.)  How old are you?

Laci – I just had my 6th birthday in October.  Don’t I look FABULOUS for being “middle aged?”

Shawna – Apparently, I came over on the Ark with Noah and his family….The Vet says I’m 19 but the Humane Society paperwork says I’m 20…Either way I’m “older than dirt.”

3.)  What is your full name?

Laci – My name is Laci but I have a ton of nicknames too.

Shawna – Shawna is my name.


4.)  Do you have any nicknames?

Laci – The Blonde Bomber, Racy Laci, “mean dog” (daddy calls me that one but I think he’s just messing with me), The Princess

Shawna – THE QUEEN!

5.)  Where do you usually sleep?

Laci – On the bed with MY human and when she’s not home I sleep on the bed with the other humans in the house….But I prefer to sleep with MY human.

Shawna – Mostly downstairs in the basement….The bomber doesn’t “do” stairs so that gets her out of my hair.


6.)  What is your favorite thing to do?

Laci – Sleep, eat, go for walkies, eat people food, spend time with MY human…they tell me I’m not spoiled but I think they’re lying to me.

Shawna – Due to being an old lady my new favorite thing to do is SLEEP!  Alot….that and go outside, cause I’m an old lady.

7.)  What is something unusual/intersting about you?

Laci – I like to sleep on my back with my feet straight up in the air.

Shawna – I have ticklish paws.

8.)  Who is your best friend?

Laci – MY human

Shawna – My grandpa…he rescued me from “doggie jail” so I could have a forever home.

9.) Did you go to obedience school? If so were you “TOP DOG” or did you flunk out?

Laci – What’s Obedience School?

Shawna – Ditto?


10.)  Can you do any tricks?

Laci – Does gracing you with my presence and beauty count?

Shawna – Ditto?

Weigh In Wednesday…

Today is Wednesday so it’s weigh in day on my weight loss progress page.  There was no change from last week which I guess is a good thing.  I think the holidays are going to be rough on me trying to lose this weight….my mom has started baking our holiday favorites already and they keep “calling me” and over course I’ve got to try a couple.  I guess it’s going to be a mind over matter thing to win the battle over this holiday season.
