Well, I knew it was going to happen one day. But I didn't know it would happen so soon. Our washing machine died. It was old and lived a good life, but it just couldn't take all the spinning all the time anymore! So, we'll be on a search for a new washing machine. Poor poor washing machine. It was a Maytag too!!
I so had to share this blog with y'all! I LOVE The Greeting Farm stamps!!!
Splendid Stamping with The Greeting Farm: A Sweet little Stopping By...and a giveaway!: "Hey everyone! Jess here and I just HAD to stop by the TGF Blog today to show you something SO sweet, you won't believe your EYES! Before..."
I can't believe it's already Wednesday! This week is flying by so fast!! I've been doing a little cleaning today - ran down to the Dollar General to get some Drano because my washing machine is not draining. Jason and his daddy are going to work on that this afternoon - It's such a pain to take our laundry to his sisters house - but at least I have somewhere close by to take it! The house is almost ready for our big cookout Saturday. I sent out a message last night about what I needed everyone to bring. I'm so excited!!! It's been too long since our last cookout! And since Jason got his new HUGE smoker, we'll be having cookouts ALL summer long!! I'm getting ready to go craft a little bit - I need a break from cleaning!

Yesterday went amazingly well! I was tired when I got up, but what's new. Jason and I got ready and went to check Elizabeth out of school - then we headed to UAB to see the specialist who did my surgery two weeks ago - He took the catheter out - and Phew! I'm so glad!! I wouldn't wish that on anyone!!! 6 more weeks and I'll be back to totally normal! Gotta have time for the bladder to finish healing he said...
Anyway, we're gearing up now for the 1st Annual Little Piggy BBQ Memorial Day cookout! We went to Sam's yesterday afternoon to get a few supplies. Thursday, we're going to Sunday Dinner to pick up the meat - Boston Butts, brisket, sausage, Hamburger meat - I sent a list out of the things we need everyone else to bring. I'm so excited! We invited well over 100 - so far about half have confirmed. We're going to do a few fun things with the kids too - a wheelbarrow race, three legged race, softball - and Jill and I made 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons this past weekend! They are too cute! I'll post pictures tomorrow!
I could not get up this morning - I was in and out of the bed all day long - I finally woke up and stayed up around 5 this afternoon - I got a few things done around the house - but nothing that counts really! LOL
I'm planning on crating for a little while tomorrow -
Guess I better get in the bed, or I'll be sleeping all day tomorrow too!

Glad today is Sunday! My best friend Jill came over with her 2 girls on Friday afternoon. Jill and I stayed up ALL night long Friday night crafting. We really didn't make much of anything - Mainly just a mess - Here are a few things that I made - We ended up going to bed at a little after 10 Saturday morning! Elizabeth got to babysit for a little while. We made some awesome ribbons for our BBQ this coming weekend!
On a awesome note - I go to the doctor tomorrow afternoon to get my cath out!! This two weeks have been horrible! If it wasn't for www.swap-bot.com, Jill, and a few other friends, I would have lost my mind!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! If you're on my facebook and didn't get an invite and want to come to our Memorial Day cookout, please email me.

I woke up this morning feeling really good - I guess pain management really does work! I've been crafting away in my craft room - Getting ready to mail some swaps for my Swap-Bot account! I'm really looking forward to seeing what all kinds of goodies I get from my swap partners!!!
Hope everyone has a great day!

My new awesome pin cushion I got from ebay - I was so surprised when I opened the box! I guess I didn't read the description when I bought it - I thought it was going to be tiny - and to my surprise, it was huge!!! The top comes off and it came with thread, bobbins, and straight pins. I've replaced all that with glue runners, and acrylic stamp blocks. It's so cute and I love it!!!

Hiya!!! Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!! We had a lazy one! Jason got a ton of yard work done - and this afternoon he killed a snake - eww! I'll see if I can upload a picture tomorrow -
So much is going on in the next month!!
This coming Saturday, Jason and his dad are going to Georgia to pick up Jason's brand spanking new Bubba smoker! His webiste for Little Piggy BBQ (named after our beautiful daughter Elizabeth) is www.littlepiggybbq.wordpress.com.
A week from tomorrow I get to go back to my doctor to find out if my surgery was a success - we're all hoping it was!! After that we're going to pick my parents up and taking them to dinner for their anniversary - which is actually June 8th, but we'll be in Disney, so Jason and I are surprising them with a night out! After dinner, we're going to Sams to get supplies for our huge cookout on Memorial Day weekend - That's going to be one busy Saturday!!
June 4th we leave for Orlando - 7 wonderful glorious days at Walt Disney World!!
I totally forgot where all I was going with this post, so I'll just continue tomorrow!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!!!
I just realized that I have been on swap bot every day since I signed up. I also just realized that I misspelled my user name. It's supposed to be TeresaMarie. hahahahah Then, I realized that we're leaving for Disney World on June the 4th and not coming home until the 12th. That's 9 whole days of not being able to get online - or on swap bot. OMG! Now, I know most people have lots more to worry about - and I know this stuff isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but I was just thinking. Maybe I shouldn't do that anymore. Think that is....LOL
I have also just realized that it's after 5 in the morning and Jason and I are still up. And I was crafting tonight from 7 until midnight.
I think I might have a problem. LOL

I suppose alot has gone on in the last month since I've posted!
I've just recently had to have reconstructive surgery on my bladder from a mishap with my hysterectomy in November. I'm recovering very well from the surgery, thank goodness!
I'm still enjoying my Yahoo group - ATCs_r-Us and patiently waiting on my ATCs to be delivered!
I just found Swap-Bot this past week and have been having a absolute ball on there looking up swaps and getting stuff together to swap!
Horray for crafting!!!
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!
