All the presents are bought and FINALLY wrapped with just a few hours to spare!! A few last minute gifts for the co-workers still need to be finished tonight before I can rest - candy bar snowmen (compliments of Toni) still need noses! Once that is done, I think I'm as done as they will come!
Just wanted to wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

We left Breckenridge at 2 p.m. on Sunday afternoon headed for home after a good weekend of skiing. It had been snowing most of the 4 day weekend and was very windy as well on Sunday. We headed into Frisco to get on I-70 to head "down the mountain", hopefully before the Sunday afternoon crowds! No such luck! As we got about 1-1.5 miles from the highway, the traffic stopped. We could see up ahead it was gridlock on the highway. We tried to get around on the surface roads, but the Damn Road was closed (yes, that's the real name)! There isn't much to do in Frisco, so we waited our turn and got on the highway, headed for Dillon a few miles up the road. We figured we could hang out there until the traffic broke later in the evening. Well, 1.5 hours later we finally got off the highway and went shopping and to dinner in Dillon. While we were eating we realized that the highway was now closed. After a few phone calls to friends back home, it was confirmed. We were stuck! Thankfully we were warm and safe for the time being.
Not knowing how long the highway was to be closed, we came up with plan B - spend the night in Dillon. We called the condo owner and got permission to get back in - but we had to pick up the extra keys at the clubhouse since we had left our set on the counter as requested. When we went there to pick them up - the condo key was missing - there was only the front door key! A few phone calls later and we were calling a locksmith to rescue us with the owners permission! He charged us $90 for less than 5 minutes worth of work! What a racket!!! But at least we had a warm, dry place to stay!
The highway did eventually open back up around 9 p.m. and we heard that if you got on there right away, it was fine, but as soon as everyone heard the news, I'm sure it was packed. We eventually got up on Monday morning and drove back home - it still took us 2.5 hours. Ugh... one of our worst but best trips up skiing!!!
I think we made the right decision to play it safe! And I was very thankful for Rex and his condo!!!
Saturday, November 29, 2008
So what am I thankful for today... having time finally to type them out! It's kind of ironic though. I didn't go skiing with the family today so that I could stay back, rest the knee and work. I've been sitting here at the clubhouse for 4 hours now and most of it has been waiting for things to upload. It's taking forever. So I'm taking that time to multi-task and catch up on my blog! I'd rather be eating lunch right now... I'm starving!! But with any luck, I'[ll be done soon!!!
Once again, I skied sensibly taking only 6 runs, but with less rest in between. I did quit early but that was in part due to the long lines of people. I just didn't feel like standing in line for 45 minutes for a run! My knee did really well - I'm very happy for that! And I do have to brag that I didn't fall on Thursday or Friday!
And the best part after skiing is a warm, hot meal of chili! That was waiting for us at the condo and I was very happy for that!!!
As for the snow totals - 4 inches yesterday in Breckenridge! And can you believe, Loveland Ski Area at the Eisenhower Tunnel got 14"? That's amazing!
I'm sure everyone is waiting to hear if I actually skied... well DAH!!! Despite the horrible conditions, we headed over to Keystone and went to the top on the new gondola! I exited at the top, strapped on the ski's and pushed off - yeah I was skiing!!! I took a green, then a blue and then I was EXHAUSTED! (The Therapist was right, I need to work on that endurance!!) I then took a 2 hour rest! Well, it wasn't intentional... I was resting while Dan and Melanie went back to the car to get lunch. Then we got stuck talking to this couple and we were way too nice to break the conversation. Finally we got back out there - I took 2 more blues and was exhausted again! Geez... another break! This one lasted an hour... Dan was suppose to take 1 run, he ended up taking 2 and picking up a Texan who wasn't ready for the conditions. FINALLY I took my 5th run and ended it at the bottom - better safe than sorry, right??
So on Thursday I was thankful for...
- My husband and daughter
- Getting back on the ski slopes
- Good health
- My family
- All of my dear friends
- Having a job
- A great Turkey dinner I didn't have to cook or clean up!
RTD helped me get to Lakewood so that we could meet Dan. It cut out 1+ hours of our commute!
Clear skies abound so that the drive up to the mountains was a breeze.
4 days off... can you believe it? Me neither! That is why on Saturday I've been sitting in the clubhouse at the condo for the past 3 hours working! If the Internet and this computer weren't so darn slow, I'd be done already! Drats!
On Monday, despite my overwhelming workload, I felt it was necessary to be thankful that I had a job. The unemployment rate is so high right now that even I can appreciate the work and income that I receive. The hours right now aren't so great, but this too shall pass! Dan and I have been laid off before, so we'll keep praying for now that our jobs are still safe!

On Friday afternoon I got on a "jet plane" and headed to my old haunts... Chi--town! Marles and her hubby picked me up at the airport and took me back to their house! Along the way we picked up gyros from Wally's (pre-ordered of course - there's no waiting for anything in Chicago)!!!! It was absolutely YUMMY!!! I couldn't even come close to finishing all that food! Then we stayed up until 2 a.m. talking! Girls!!! What a great start to the weekend!!!

Today I am very thankful for the Big Blue Bus and it's driver - my dear husband Dan! Without him, my commute to work gets even uglier! My normal commute to work (about 25 miles away) starts at 6:25 a.m. when we pull out of the garage in the Big Blue Bus! He drops me at the Outlet Mall (about 2.5 miles from home) at 6:35 a.m. where I catch the FREX (Front Range Express) bus to Denver. About 7:00 a.m. I get off the FREX and wait another 7-8 minutes for the Denver RTD bus that takes me the remaining 1.75 miles to my office. I get there about 7:25 a.m. Then I do the reverse on the way back home, but that takes me even longer, leaving at 4:30 p.m. and arriving home at about 6 p.m.! When Dan is away and I don't have a Big Blue Bus to rely on, I have to wait for the little Castle Rock shuttle... unfortunately that doesn't pick up at my house until 7:25 a.m. and I don't get to work until almost 9 a.m.! Oh the joys of not having a license! Please don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining... I'm thankful I have him to assist me!!! Just consider yourself lucky if you can drive!Here are another 10 items from my 101 list...

Today I am thankful for all the cards that I received this week from my friends! I don't collect the mail often (usually 1 or 2 times per week) and when I did finally today, I opened 4 very special cards! The first was a great Hi/Get Well card from Debbie! That was so sweet of you to think of me! I love the little chick! Then I opened a thank you card from Nattie (Toni's daughter)! At first I had no clue who Natalie was... couldn't read the rest of the post mark! I think she's growing up fast Toni when she uses her full name!!! The next card was a great Halloween card from Patti! What a great Spooky Greeting! Then lastly I opened my "November" friends card from Marles (aka Snot)! She tried another Zindorf technique and I think it's fantastic!
Tonight I am working on my London book. I need to finish it by Christmas as I'm giving one copy as a gift to Dad. Yes, Patti I know I have a lot of other trips lined up to do as well! And yes, they are on my 101 list! How long is yours??!! Here are my first 10...

I still struggle on the balance balls, but I am getting better! I know that Mike will be testing me on these, so I have to keep trying them! So between balance and jumping, I will be ready for that sports test!
My weekend plans include a day of scrapbooking with a friend from work. That should be fun. She is brand new to this hobby and I hope I don't overwhelm her on the first day! In addition, we have to pick up the ski boots we picked out for Melanie. They have been holding them for us so that we could use our coupon and save almost $50! Beyond that, not sure what else the weekend holds! What are your plans?

And thanks Toni for all the great stamps you shared with us! That was such a wonderful gesture! Now I definitely have to make some cards this weekend to share with you!!!
Wednesday, October 22, 2008
If you read Toni's blog you'll find that she got 4" of snow last night up in the foothills!!! We weren't quite that lucky - just a light dusting! But looking West from the office window we could see the white mountains! I'm getting excited to finally have cooler days and ski season!

We've been home for a few days and this is the first chance I've had to actually sit down and reflect on our fun and fast adventure to Cancun!
We arrived in Mexico a week ago this past Friday. The first thing we noticed when we got off the plane was the HUMIDITY! Not something we experience much in Colorado! The trip through customs was a piece of cake and before we knew it we were in the van and on our way to the hotel! Our accommodations were nothing to brag about but we did have a room looking out into the ocean! Too bad the cabanas were in the view! We took a nice stroll down the main street of town and had dinner on the lagoon at Senor Frogs! After dinner we had our first trip into the "Flea Market"! It was more like a comical video game! We had never experienced the adventure of these vendors trying to lure us into their shops! Each one invited us in claiming they had what we wanted, or their stuff was better than the last! We felt triumphant when we got all the way through without buying a thing!!
Our Monday schedule was all about relaxing! We started at the pool and eventually moved down to the beach where we had a blast swimming in the gentle waves! After a few hours at the water, we set out to see what else there was in the area. It was extremely hot and humid as we strolled around looking at the shops and hunting down some lunch. Later in the afternoon was more pool time, but this time the kids played water volleyball! We had dinner at Carlos and Charlies where we were serenaded by the staff! After the mean, there was another opportunity to go through the "flea market". Did I mention it was quite fun entertainment as long as you had a slight buzz! We spent more relaxing time just people watching at a close by mall! What a great day!
We woke up on Sunday with excitement - it was dolphin day!!! After a nice (sweaty) stroll up the hotel zone to the pier we boarded a boat to Isle Mujeres. We were treated to a wonderful buffet breakfast before we set sail to the island! Te trip across the water was beautiful and we were thrilled to finally land on the island! Instantly we were whisked away to meet our new friends the dolphins! After a training video, it was down into the natural tank to meet Shelly and Marina! We each got an opportunity to kiss a dolphin, shake their fins, hug them and be pulled through the water with them on each side! The best part was when we each got to fly through the water as they pushed us by our feet! It was so absolutely awesome! When our time was up, I wanted to change careers and be a dolphin trainer!!! It was an experience of a lifetime! To end this experience we purchased a copy of the video and pictures that were taken during our time in the pool!
Much of the time for the rest of the day on the island was spent snorkeling in a tank with sting rays, close by sharks and in the ocean near the coral reef. There were storms coming in, so the water was rough, but it was great to see the fishes! The last highlight was riding the zip line (3 times) across the ocean! That was a LOT of fun! Just as we set sail back to Cancun the rain began and didn't let up for the rest of the night! At least we got a full day of fun in and it was the highlight of the trip!
On Monday we set out for a day of snorkeling south of Cancun. It was recommended to us by a travel agent as being the best place close by to snorkel. Six of us loaded onto a very small boat and cruised just a few minutes away from the shore before jumping into the water! The other group that came with was scared and didn't spend much time in the water, but for us, it was like our second home! We cruised around spotting many kinds of fish and coral, including a lobster, sting ray, sea cucumber and yes, even barracuda! We had 2 dives and almost 2 hours in the water! It wasn't as great as Australia, but it was definitely a lot of fun!!! We are all hooked and can't wait for our next snorkel experience! The evening was spent at the Hard Rock and once again people watching at the mall! Oh and who could forget another trip through the "Flea Market"!
Tuesday was our final day in Cancun and we wanted to spend it once again at the water! We started in the pool, but quickly moved to the rolling waves on the beach! It was SOOOOOO much fun that I didn't want to leave! But we had to leave the beach behind and check out by lunchtime and head back to the airport. The flight home was very uneventful and before we knew it we were back in Colorado enjoying the cool temperatures and dry air!!
It was a great trip - a little too short, but I don't think I would have wanted to spend too much more time there. Maybe if we had been at a nicer resort, I would have stayed much longer! All in all, we had a great weekend!

On Saturday, Melanie and I took the bus into town and did a little bit of shopping. My first stop was at Michael's, where I used my 50% off coupon this week to FINALLY buy my Prismacolor markers! (Thankfully I stopped at the mailbox first, where I found the coupon!!!) The 48 count markers retail for $189, but I got them for half ($95)! And then I used 2 gift cards I had for $75, so in the end it only cost me $20 plus tax! You can't beat that! And now I can color my images or at least attempt to anyway! I am so excited!
And now that I have these wonderful markers, I can finally color my Riley stamps!!! I used this cute little one with the tent as a birthday card for my nephew Phil who likes to camp with his family. I hope he likes it as much as I do! I can't wait to do more!
And with that, it's 19 days and counting to Cancun! I'm making my reservations to swim with the dolphins tonight! How much fun that wll be!

I went to the therapist last week for my knee and he told me that I could more than likely ski by November, but I will need to strengthen my knee more and that includes weights! Ugh! The doctor confirmed this on Monday! That means I have to join a gym because the machine in the basement can do some of the exercises but not all. (At least I can do some I suppose!) I'm going to try to go to 24 Hour Fitness at lunch by my office. I printed a free pass for a week. Maybe if I'm lucky, I'll love it!!! Wish me luck!!
I haven't had much creative energy lately. I'm hoping with the arrival of some Hanna Stamps maybe my juices will flow again?! One can only hope!!! My brain has lots of plans, but it doesn't seem to connect to the parts of my body that do the work!!!

Ah yes, I remember now... last weekend we went camping up by Buffalo Creek! We had never stayed at that campground before (Buffalo) but Dan assured me we had been there before. It was about 15 years ago and the slope surrounding the campground was in "rebirth" after a fire. If that is true, then in 15 years, trees do grow fast!! It was very quiet there and a perfect place to retreat and relax. Yes, I said relax! We actually took a nap in the afternoon while a t-storm dumped rain on us! We talked by the campfire and ate s'mores (or the fixings separately)! It was rather enjoyable. We took a new route home that went along the South Platte River and it was beautiful! I think Dan will go back there and fish one of these days!
I have been busy this week at work with my assistant gone. I'm not getting much of my own stuff accomplished, but rather cleaning up some of hers. At least I only have 2 days left and Friday is bound to be easy before the holiday!
I haven't felt much like blogging or crafting in the evening this week. I think I'm in a little "funk" because yesterday was the anniversary of my mother's death. It's been 17 years and it almost seems like yesterday. Especially because 1 co-worker lost her mother yesterday and another's is very ill with cancer. All that brings back the memories of that dreaded weekend when we lost Mom. I was going to blog about it yesterday, but couldn't bring myself to it. Maybe later I will...
Wednesday, August 20, 2008
I used pattern paper scraps from Scenic Route I believe... Sprinkle of course, some dotted ribbon, flowers and of course some rhinestones for her collar! The sketch for this card was lifted from Frances. She does some amazing work! I'm always in awe of her stuff!!! Maybe because she's from "down under"?
Have a great day!

I didn't sleep well and definitely didn't feel well when I went to work. Finally around 9 a.m., Ed called to let me know they took him into surgery. About 2 hours later he was out. They placed a stint in an artery that was 99% blocked, but chose not to repair any of the others at this time. Instead they decided to close him up and schedule open heart surgery in a few weeks. I never got to talk to Dad that day but I did get the full report from my brother. In addition to the bypass surgery, he will also have his valve repaired or possibly replaced depending on the damage. This will be a very major surgery.
When I called Dad on Tuesday morning I learned he still had the tube in his groin and he was till flat on his back 22 hours after surgery. That poor man. He sounded really good though and was very positive. I wasn't sure if he really understood what lay ahead of him, but I knew he would eventually. I called him again that evening and he was in an even better mood! He had had the tube removed, had many visitors and was finally moved to a regular room! Now it was just a matter of time before he was released.
Tonight he was still in the hospital and chomping at the bit to get out of there. He told me he has walked up and down the halls many times to get exercise and see something other than the TV! The doctor will release him tomorrow after they have made sure he is strong enough to go home. He is more than ready!
As for the upcoming surgery, well he had lots of questions. He needs to see the cardiologist first and schedule the procedure. Not sure when that will be, but I've told him I will be there. I can't let something major go by with me 1000 miles away. I'm to anxious to get answers and don't want to wait for someone to call. Now, Ed, I know you have done a great job, but put yourself in my shoes!!! Besides, a few days off of work sounds great right now!!!
So, for now my roller coaster has stopped and I'm feeling much better knowing he is doing OK and ready to go home!
Wednesday, July 23, 2008
Summer is just busy... it seems like if I'm not up to something with the family, I'm recovering! I've been really tired lately - I think it's just the heat. Not sure how many days in the 90's we've had, but I can tell you I wouldn't want to live someplace like AZ! Me and heat don't get along!
This past weekend I finally finished Patty's CJ book. Her journal was a clear album about color! I ended up using GREEN and decided on nature and "GO GREEN" as my inspiration. I took lots of outdoor pictures and when I finally uploaded them last week to Snapfish, my problems started. Snapfish never sent them to Walgreen's and after 2 tries, 2 trips to the stores and many phone calls, I finally through in the towel and went to Walmart. Unfortunately this delayed me by 4 more days. Finally over the weekend I pumped out the book and as a bonus, finished Kristi's Quote book as well! That makes me finished with this round! Yeah!!! In addition, I finally finished Toni's CJ from the other group and mailed that back yesterday! Hopefully it was waiting for her when she arrived home today!!!
My niece Betsy came on Sunday and left today! Her and Melanie had a lot of fun playing together! They went to the movies and the pool! Probably their last hurrah together before school starts. They will see each other over the next 2 weekends for family functions, but probably no more sleepovers! I'm glad they had fun!
Work is work... It is boring and exhausting because it's boring. That's about all anyone needs to hear!!!
I think I'll try to do some stamping tonight! Have a great one everyone!
