When I was a kid, we used punch cards in computer class... today they write programs right on the PC without those silly cards!
When I was a kid, we used an electric fan inside our car window to cool us down as we drove across Kansas... today we just blast the AC!
When I was a kid, we rode in the back of the station wagon with no seat belts on... today that would be a ticket waiting to happen!
When I was a kid, we walked a mile to school in the rain or snow... today the kids all get rides from Mommy or Daddy!
When I was a kid, I rode a bicycle with no speeds and granny handlebars... today the kids have 10-18-??? speeds on their bikes and the coolest handle bars!
When I was a kid, the only cartoons were on Saturday morning until noon... today you can find them on MULTIPLE channels, ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT long!
When I was a kid, couples on TV shows slept in twin beds... today, they have sex right in my living room!
When I was a kid, you boiled hot dogs in a pot on the stove... today we just nuke them for 45 seconds!
When I was a kid, if you wanted to dry your hair, you hooked up the big portable dryer and sat underneath it for an hour... today you just use the blow dryer and are set in less than 5!
And when I was a kid, you ALWAYS played outside... today they never go out unless they're forced to.
Do I miss those days, you betcha! Nothing better than growing up in the 70's! But then again, I'm sure kids today will be saying the same thing when they have kids of their own!!!
I've been having a little fun with this flower punch I bought a few weeks ago. I have used it on several cards already, but this is one of my favorites. I punched right through the card in the bottom corner and adhered the patter flower on the inside of the card! That is working outside "the box" for me!!! I love the look! I sent this one to my great friend Toni for her wonderful birthday gift!
I took my birthday money today and went shopping at Kohl's! I bought a few skirts, a jacket and a few tops! Oh and a comfy pair of summer sandals! It was fun to go and try things on although most of the styles look awful on me! But I tried them to make sure, instead of just shrugging them off at the rack! It's always nice to have a few new things in the closet!
I have 2 ATC swaps that I need to finish by the end of this week and mail. They are both due around the first of the month. I'm having a HUGE problem with the "Where are you at?" one. I can't decide between Colorado and London (it does not have to be where you live) because I can't find the right embellishments for either place. It would be fine if I only needed a couple, but I have to make a minimum of 9. Ugh! I'm sure it will come together in the end. I'll post pictures when I finally figure it out!!
Hope everyone else is enjoying their weekend!!!

We had yet another snow storem this week! Thankfully once again I lucked out and worked from home on those days! How I have lucked out this year with easy commutes!! We got about 6 inches on the grass, and just wet on the pavement. By Thursday afternoon almost everything was gone and today, you'd never know it even snowed!! On Saturday it's suppose to be 78! Yahoo!!! Love Colorado weather!

I guess I've been kind of down these past few days, so I haven't written anything. Turning 42 for some reason has made me sad. I started to write an entry on my birthday, but couldn't find any happy words, so I erased it. It was snowing and I was working from home, so I guess I was kind of lonely. The combination of that really got me down. The ice cream from Cold Stone perked me up a little bit though!
On Friday I went and had the MRI on my knee. No results yet, it will take a few more days. They think it might be a torn meniscus. It doesn't hurt too much but I would like it healed so I can move on with my activities and not be in pain. I mean c'mon I have mountains to climb this summer! I told the doctor that and he laughed!
I did get to spend my Saturday shopping with a long stop at Archiver's - thanks to 2 very good friends who gave me gift cards!! Thanks Marlene and Moira! I didn't even spend it all, so I have a chance to go back!! (No, that doesn't make Dan happy!) I bought some basic supplies, including another scalloped oval punch to add to my collection! (I blame Toni for that collection!)
On Sunday I got a great gift from Toni - a 3 month subscription to Self Addressed, a Kit of the Month club! I can't wait to get the first one - it looks so cool!!! You rock Toni! Speaking of Ms. Toni, you should check out her blog today... she's got blog candy to give away!!! Maybe someone I know will get luckier than I do! And that leads me back to Monday where I got to spend lunch with Toni (and her wonderful kids)!!

Blue paper is Basic Gray... Grid is screen held on my wire... measuring tape is ribbon... one big silver washer... and a MFT stamp says it all! It is very industrial I think!
