I Don't Like to Toot my Own Horn Buuuuut......

...I'm pretty amazing!! :O) Yep!! Yesterday......I cleaned the shower.....harvested the mushrooms......and made homemade soup with them!! I know.......aaaaaawesome!! My hubby is one lucky man!! :O)

Don't be a hater!! You can be awesome too.....grow mushrooms on your shower doors too!! It's a gift worth giving to your family!! They will thank you....they'll be afraid not to!! :O)

Toodles friends!! My coffee break is over......and I must get back to harvesting!! I think there's penicillin growing behind the toilet!! SCORE!!!!!!

Say What?????

Guess what I got for Christmas......poison ivy!! I know!! How in the world did I get it in the winter???? I swear Rick must have rubbed it all over me 'cause of the whole "getting revenge on him 'cause he made me cut firewood" thing!! I'm considering rubbing my oozi-ness all over him while he sleeps!!! :O)

Hope all had a wonderful holiday.....so.....was Santa watching closely......or did ya get away with it all????? :O)

Nighty night friends!! And now.....I must go overdose on Benadryl and ivy-dry!! :O)

Al......riiiiiight.....

....I know I posted yesterday about choosing joy......however....I just got groceries.....and I really just wanna rip some one's face off!! Here's the compromise......I'll be really happy when I do it okay!!!!! I'm choosing joy....joyfully ripping one's face off for being complete morons!! I think the whole world'll be a lil' more joy-filled with a few less stupid people around don't you!!! Uuuuummmm...... unless I'm the stupid person.....then......yea.....I'm not good with that!! :O)

Anyhoo......have a great one fellow joy givers!!

Wow!!

Sometimes during the hectic Christmas season.....it's easy to get overwhelmed with the process.....and lose site of the real reason for the season. Family time is replaced with trying to think of the perfect gifts....duh...we miss spending time with them....to buy them sumthin'.....yea!!!

Anyhoo......when the Christmas blues kick in........check out this blog I have stumbled upon......



Read this gal's journey and her example of choosing joy!! It is a great testimony to living life to its' fullest!!

Today.....I choose joy.....how 'bout you? (yea.....tomorrow I may be a witchy-poo again....but right now I'll be joyful!!!) :O)

Enjoy!!
Stacey

Remember When......

My brother and I

I'm working on a project......and spent yesterday going through family pix!! Oh my gosh.....what a funny funny life I've had!!! I am a blessed lady!!

I hope you take a moment today and remember when too!!
Be a blessing!!

I'm a Helper!!

We heat with a wood stove.....and that means we must cut firewood. I LOVE the warmth of the fire.....however.....collecting the fuel......well.....it ain't the funnest job eveh!!! :O)

Normally.....the job falls on Rick and Brady's shoulders....and happens much earlier in the year......however since this year has been on permanent fast forward.....that didn't happen!! Soooooo......guess who gets to be Rick's lil' helper this year......yep!!!......ME!!!

After about an hour's worth of complaining each night.....Rick would drag me to the woods. He chopped......and I loaded......and by "loaded" I mean........I wander around finding all kinds of gorgeous God's creations that we could turn into prim treasures!! Rick gets a lil' peeved when after 472 times I scream, "OH MY GOODNESS!!" and when he comes running thinking I have chopped off my arm.....he finds something he doesn't really see as beautiful!! Oh well.......I was being helpful.....and he was NOT BEING THANKFUL!!!

......It was cold!!! ........I was frozen!!! I think my face fell off on Saturday 'cause of frostbite!!....... AND.....he wouldn't collect a fallen tree I found that would be perfect by the barn....you know....standing upright!!! Geesh!!! How unreasonable is he!!!!! Something about it being too heavy.....whatever.....I just saw cranes up righting a tree on the White House lawn.....can't be that hard right!!!!......well anyway......I've devised all kinds of revenge plots....sooooo.....it's alright....you know.....all except the face falling off part....yea......that's gonna take a lil' getting used to!! :O)

Anyhoooooo......we'll be warm....blah....blah....blah......and Rick is insisting we eat out a lot this week for fear of poisoning......so all in all......I guess it wasn't all that bad!!! Hope you are all warm and toasty too!! Enjoy your new week!!

There Is......

There is a lil' pudge....
that doesn't wanna budge....
right in the middle of me!!

I sit up and down....
and crunch and hold....
a thousand times a day!!

But it remains...
right where it hangs....
I just don't see another way!!

Then to my horror....
in the mirror I did twirl....
You'll never guess what I find!!

On my other side.....
big as it could be....
a huge pudge right there on my behind!!

I guess the lil' pudge.....
will just have to wait...
while I focus on the fanny!!

Unless of course....
the man'll help out...
"Oh please Mr. Santy!!"

Can't you please....
oh pretty pretty please
make all my pudges vanish!!

And then oh please....
oh pretty pretty please....
don't make me give up my danish!!

Have a grand day....
all my blogger friends.....
and give a lil' cheer!!

And then don't forget....
never, never forget....
to also work out your rear!!

Stacey


BTW....I broke the mirror into 10,000 pieces.....may be bad luck....but at least I won't be finding any more pudges!!! :O)

I Paid Sale Price......$149.99 (right now it is on sale for $169.99)

I also purchased 1 pkg of Hot Chocolate K-cups on sale for $14.99 (then and now)

Fwhew!!

During our time of "panicly preparing for the next show".....my exercise program slipped!! I'm still holding at a total weight loss of 62# and I feel great.....but I want to continue to lose a little....and stay in shape too....so Monday I restarted my 90 day system.....(insert screams of pain here!!!)

I can't move!!

Even the hair on my arms.....and my newly crochet leg hairs.....HURT!!!

I've sweat so much.....that there is now a clean spot on the family room floor!!

But.......I look goooooooood!!
Enjoy your Thursday!!! Sweat a lil' on yourself today too......as opposed to sweating all over someone else.....cause that's gross!!

Toodles!!
Stacey


BTW.....tune in tomorrow when I describe how wonderfully terrific my hunka hunka burnin' love is!!! :O)
