Just in case you weren't paranoid enough...

This is the text of a forward that I received from my aunt today. I get ALOT of forwards from my family and I don't usually read them, but I had seen this one before and remembered that I thought it was funny. After reading it again, I am now full of all kinds of images of things that I really don't need to think about.. eeek - very small killers are everywhere!!!

I just want to thank all of you for your educational e-mails over the past year. I am totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I no longer open a public bathroom door without using a paper towel or have them put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel.

I can't use the remote in a hotel room because I don't know what the last person was doing while flipping through the adult movie channels.

I can't sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what h…

Puzzles, Puzzles, everywhere..

I have discovered a new obsession.. honestly, I've been spending way too much time on these goofy puzzles... but they are so much fun!

Here is the link... you can chooose from all kinds of different National Geographic Images.


Clearing the clutter and then some...

I am determined this is the year that I will finally clear all the clutter from my boxes that hide out in the garage where I can't see them. It is amazing how much stuff can collect especially when it is "out of sight, out of mind" so to speak. Granted, some of the stuff lurking in the garage is just waiting for when I move and can be released back into use, but there is ALOT that can be done away with, once and for all.

I have found a couple of great websites that I am hoping will help me in this endeavor. I am totally addicted to Real Simple magazine. I think it's the title that makes it so appealing, but it is also full of all kinds of wonderful ideas. And, naturally they have a website as well.. check er out here...

I also apologize in advance for all the updates that may be appearing. I am going to be streamlining my labels again to make it a little easier to create a cloud or something fancy later on..

The other great site, though it seems a little intimida…

Welcome to 2009!

Like many people, I make resolutions. Actually, I usually make a little list to remind myself of things I'd like to accomplish each year.

Here are a couple from this year:

- Read a minimum of 60 books (I was a bit of a slacker last year and it's good for the brain)
- Be kinder (I add this to the list every year. No matter how good you were, you can always be kinder and it's a nice reminder to self not to be so cynical all the time.)
- Take more pictures of the family. In looking back through all the pictures of last year, I noticed a distinct lack of people in them. Doh!

I have a few more, but I'll keep them on my list to be checked off throughout the year.

So, what are your resolutions???
