I'm Doing the Happy Dance!

post # 164
I'm doing the happy dance because:
 1)  Michael's is developing a digital scrapbook program!  Really, I am majorly excited about this! I have been making a digital scrapbook for my granddaughter with photos from birth and will end with her first birthday party in November using and I absolutely love it!  SOOOO much fun! I can hardly wait to see what Michael's has to offer.  Evidently they will have a free subscription and then you can also choose to pay for more options.  I am anxious to see how their photo book prices compare with Shutterfly, Snapfish, Winkflash, Kodak, Walmart, Target etc since they do not charge you for a subscription to use their tools.  With so much competition Michael's will probably have good sales just like the others.   If you want to check it out then go to then check out midesign ... yes, that is midesign with an i
2) Because these slow cooker liners are worth every penny!  I forgot how much they were but not much and you get 4 in a box.  I will never have to scrub off cooked on, dried up food again!  I love my crock pot but hate to clean it.  Even if food isn't dried on it the crock is heavy and cumbersome to hand wash in a shallow trailer house kitchen sink.
3) the weather is beautiful, cool, not windy at all and  at 6 p.m. I am sitting on my front steps singing.  Yeah, singing.  I am not musical in any way, shape or form. I can not carry a tune in a bucket, the only thing I can play is a CD and I don't sing around anyone but very young children while rocking.   Today it dawned on me that no one was here but me and the dogs.  Casey and Becky no longer live here so i can sing all i want, no one will be walking in --- the dogs might mind but they don't complain.  I put my ipod in my ears and sang along to my heart's content.
and of course i am not really doing a happy dance......physically........because not only can i not sing i do not have anything remotely like rhythm either!  Even if i did i couldn't dance right now because my feet hurt soooo bad.  That reminds me.....i have always wished i could dance.  One year my daughter and I took a line dancing class at the local community college.  When the class started i discovered the woman directly behind me was my boss's boss....the library director.  After the first class she said to me "Carol, it is a good thing your dancing ability doesn't come up in your evaluation at the library."  LOL!!!!

You are so funny! I have been reading your blog and just know we would be friends if we lived in the same town! I, too, love to read..everyone knows when we walk in a bookstore I always have to say "I don't know if I ever told you but books are my friends" and then we laugh. I, too, cannot sing or dance well but do when no one is my IPOD! Anyway, I'm Linda from SC who met your sister, Linda, at the museum in Tucumcari. Thanks so much for your comments on our blog! I also clicked on your link to the Brave Girls Club blog and had to call my sister to tell her to go to it! God really does work in mysterious ways! It's so nice to meet you, even if it's via internet! Look me up if you ever get to South Carolina and I will look you up if we get back to Amarillo and Tucumcari! Take care and God Bless!

Well, honey, you just made my day! it is so nice to hear from someone who reads my blog....remember when Sally Field won an Oscar and she gushed "they like me, they really like me!", well when I get a comment I gush "someone read me!" Really, my dogs will testify! I get very few comments, ok, 5 maybe, so it is nice to know someone is out there! :) My sister said you were the most fun people she had talked to in a long time. We wish we could be your friend! Re: the article on Brave Girls Club...i sent an emailman to my friends and told them that i promise they know someone that they will want to share that story with. I enjoyed your photos today. Yes, the wind can be terrible here, semi's get blown over, really, at least a couple a year! I love your dogs! I have 3 as well except mine are schnauzers (actually my Zoe's daddy was a beagle but we don't talk about it in front of her...i just tell her she is a plus size girl). Thank you for 'talking' to me and I am going to live vicariously through you. I can hardly wait to see what "we" do in OKC!
