Monday, March 3

I went to Mississippi and all I got was this lousy Strep!

Yep, we came back and got sick.
I kinda expected it, with all those germ infested planes we rode.
And when I came back to work last week, my computer was sick too.
He greeted me with tons of porn popups.
A girl can only find her horny match so many times before getting bored.
And very angry.
So after countless hours with tech support.
I am virus free again.

And totally behind on my work.
And about 1000 posts behind on my bloglines.
And I leave for Jamaica in 10 days!
So much to do, so very little time.

And yes, I still scrap!

I've run outta new pictures to scrap that inspire me, so I started sifting through old photos that I never scrapped and it was like a trip down memory lane.
So, if you are in a scrappin' rut, I highly recommend digging through your old photos.
I think I actually forgot how little the kid was once.

Letters in this page are the negatives from my American Craft letters, this is one of my favorite cheapo tips and I use it all the time.
The paper is from KI memories, I bought it while in MS.
And if my friends ever questioned just how cheap I am, they witnessed it firsthand at the LSS when I only spent $20.

I hope you feel better soon. I read about your adventures over the weekend and believe me, I was laughing with you, not atcha!

I'm so jealous you're going to Jamaica--I went to Hedonism II the summer of 2002 and miss Jamaica. I need a warm and sunny vacation!
