Happy Inauguration Day!!!!

Seriously, it really is a shame that I don't get this thrilled and excited (as a Canadian) about getting a new Prime Minister!!! But today is a day that we will probably all remember and think back....what was I doing when Obama, the new President of The United States, takes office today? I follow very little when it comes to politics, only because I have seen nothing but the same unispiring people get up infront of us and make promises that they never intend to keep! It becomes a part of life, being let down by our government time after time. Don't get me wrong, I am happy to be a Canadian and have the rights that we have every day we wake up. It would just be something else to have someone as inspiring and compassionate about change and the people, as the people of United States will have in power as the sun is setting today.

To see the tears of joy roll down the faces of millions and millions is something else to watch. He has promised change and for once, as a bystander, I truely believe he will bring it! This is breathtaking to watch, the hope that he instills in his people and the courage he brings to all!

I think this is the most brilliant man I have seen speak in my lifetime...but then again, what do I know about politics?! MWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

Some SU Housekeeping....

I just wanted to do a quick post of some of the greatest and latest from SU.....

Well, it is official! As of yesterday, we can now order from the fabulous new SU Catty!!! I am super thrilled about this as I think this catty is one of the best ones they have printed in a long long time!!! My wish list is I just need to find the patience (and courage) to NOT ORDER IT ALL ON MY FIRST ORDER!!!!!!

Starting February 1st, running until March 31st, is SU's SALE-A-BRATION!!! For every $60 you spend in merchandise in the catty, you will recieve one free stamp set (these are new stamp sets and accessories that will be released in the Sale-A-Bration Mini Catty on Feb 1st and you can only EARN these adorable sets - yes, I have seen a sneek peak! and they are superb!!!). There are 6 choices in total and you will luv em!! Trust me!!!! Not only are there stamp sets but also ribbon and DSP to choose from!!! Get out your credit cards ladies!!!!!!

A Warmer Holiday Season

Well, thought I should post a photo of where we spent our holiday season!! We left on the 19th of December for 10 glorious days in the south to Phoenix, Arizona.  The weather was not ideal but blew the -40 degree weather we were having in Alberta out of the water!! 
We did a day trip to Mexico to scout for good tequilla and knockoff handbags ( which I found lots of but really don't remember thanks to the tequilla! LOL!!!) We spent a day in Tuscon, checking out the beautiful scenery, and returned to Mesa for some rest and relaxation.  That didn't last too long, as I needed to invest some of my hard earned cash into the department stores and outlet centers! Believe it or not, but I somehow managed to come home both under the luggage weight AND my return allowed quota!! What the......!!!! Oh well!
We had a fabulous Christmas with my family, and I feel so lucky to have such an entertaining group in my life!!!

A New Year...A New Start to Old Habits!!!!

For some, New Years offers us a sort of “get out of jail” card, and allows us to make some promises to change our lives from here on in!!! What a fantastic ploy we play with ourselves to make a deal with the devil for mainly, what I have found as, dissapointment. So a few years ago, I forbade the practice of making new years resolutions, rationing…if I don’t make them, I can’t break them!!!!
So in welcoming in 2009, I will post some “REALISTIC” statements that I have stumbled on over the years. These may (or may not…) let you start your new year with a chuckle or two!!!
* I will no longer waste my time relieving the past, instead I will spend it worrying about the future.
* I will not bore my boss by with the same excuse for taking leaves. I will think of some more excuses.
* I will do less laundry and use more deodorant.
* I will avoid taking a bath whenever possible and conserve more water.
* I will give up chocolates totally. 100%. Completely. Honestly....
* I will try to figure out why I *really* need nine e-mail addresses.
* I will stop sending e-mail, ICQ, Instant Messages and be on the phone at the same time with the same person.
* I will spend less than one hour a day on the Internet. This, of course, will be hard to estimate since I'm not a clock watcher.
* I will read the manual... just as soon as I can find it.
* I will not tell the same story at every get together.
* I will stop considering other people's feelings when they so obviously don't consider mine - if that unwashed fellow sits next to me again, I'll tell him he stinks!
*Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day in my pj’s. Instead, I will take my laptop into the bedroom with me.
* I will eat ice-cream at midnight - every midnight of the year!
* I will not let the dog hog the pillow, growl at me from the sofa, and snatch the bun from my plate - this year he's going to learn that I'm the Alpha of the house and only I get to do certain things!
* If I see a UFO I won’t tell anyone about it.
* I'm going to learn cusswords in different languages. Broaden my vocabulary.
* I will not tell lies – ok, that might be a lie…..
* I will balance my checkbook….on my nose!
* I resolve to be nice to people without bringing Jesus into the equation.
* With that cloned cow having given birth and everything, I resolve to pay more attention to where my food comes from this next year.
* I hope to be able to make people think happy thoughts when they think of me.
* I will go on long ego trips.
* I will prognosticate that I will probably procrastinate engaging in all the objectives I have premeditated for this approaching twelvemonth.
* Chat more over phone.
* Read less.
* Stop exercising. I will only run at high speeds if a wild animal is chasing me.
* Procrastinate more.
* Drink. Drink some more.
* Start being superstitious.
* Spend less time at work.
* Stop bringing lunch from home: I should eat out more.
* Take up a new habit: Maybe smoking!
* I will not shout at the top of my lungs in the dark, as I am hiding behind the door to scare my husband as he is trying to find his way in the dark to the bedroom!! I thought it was funny but appartently not!
* I will remember that life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.
* I will remember it isn't worthwhile wrestling with pigs - you get all muddy and don't the pigs just love it!
* I will take neither myself nor any of the above seriously.

Happy New Years' 2009 to all the sistah's!!!! MWAH!!!!!
