It's not easy being me sometimes

I'm trying I really am. I have good intentions but it's just not easy. Eating right and giving up things like diet coke may make me feel better in the end but it's tough when you have a craving.

I was in the store and seriously thought about buying a candy bar. Yes, I want it. No, you don't need it. But it's just a little candy bar. That's just a little more cushion to add to your butt.


So what's a girl to do when she wants a candy bar and she knows she shouldn't have it?
She takes the whole darn rack home with her, that's what she does.
Since they would have frowned upon me taking the actual rack home, I took a picture of it. It's almost like taking candy home with me and as long as I take my phone wherever I go I'll always have a stash of candy bars in my purse. It's not quite as satisfying but it will have to do

Another reason to hate winter

As if I really needed another reason but I do have one more.

I dislike driving in winter conditions and even more so at night. Well throw in a snow plow that you get stuck behind and I'm ready to pack my bags and move south. Sandra, do you have a room I could rent?

Any way, I was behind a snow plow the other morning and they now have these horrible flashing lights on the back of them that just about blind you. I realize they want to be seen but this is overkill. Most of the time I can't pass them because with that darn light flashing I can't see around them.

I snapped this while I was sitting at the stop light.

Now, imagine driving down the road with that light flashing on and off the whole time in front of you.

What I did on my day off

I think it's starting to become a theme where I do quite a bit but some people would call it being lazy. I obviously don't care what some people say because I'm enjoying my Mondays off.

I started mine off by sitting on the couch with a cup of coffee and paper, pencils and markers.

I was working on this weeks journal page. I finished the page but I'll save that for later in the week.

Of course I spent time on the computer reading all of your blogs, catching up on emails, getting pictures ready for posts and then scheduling several for the week.

I took pictures, lots and lots of pictures. Some are really stupid but I now have lots of future blog material.

I didn't finish this on my day off but I did finish one of the projects I was working on with those cardboard hearts I cut out and had in my project 365 collage.

The base of this is a piece of a corrugated cardboard box. The sheet music was something I printed out. The heart was made from a cereal box. I painted it, added some crackle medium and painted it again. The red around the edge is some very small Christmas garland that I had left over and then I glued on some fake flowers. Behind it I added some fake greens that I curled. A bit of cheesecloth was stuck in and then I added a bit of glitter here and there. And wallah I was done

What I won

Remember on this post when I told you about a giveaway I won on Connie's blog ? My prize came in the mail on Saturday. The funny thing is for some reason I never gave a thought to checking the mail that day. Then when I got home from work on Sunday my daughter was here. She handed me a package that she said was in my mailbox.

Not the best picture of the whole banner in this collage but you get the idea. I absolutely love it. There was also a little burlap bag with the rustic necklace inside. I love the tag she has hanging from the bag too. It says "If it were perfect it would not be made by me".  Thank you again Connie, I really do love it all.
