Baaaaad, bad Blogger (and yardsale)

I kind of unplugged a bit from the internet there for a while and it was really good for me. I got a lot of work done, finished a few novels and enjoyed the 'primitive' life. My son was home for his spring break which was oddly almost a month before official spring arrived, but it was great to have someone who was so thankful for a home cooked meal that he actually sprinted to the table when he was called and didn't even complain when it wasn't his favorite because even that was better than college food.

The 'Crud' took a great deal of recovery time for all of us effected too. Even now, there is the off deep chest cough rumbling through the house. No one more fervently hopes than me that next year the flu shot will be more on target.

The camera has been acting up, so while it's being examined by an expert, I'm all out of fun visuals.

But....

today one of my favorite movies from last year was released on video! Dan In Real Life even scored the hubby approval rating which is practically like an Oscar for the layman. Steve Carrell makes me laugh and in this movie, he made me cry~in a good way. I rarely purchase dvds because Netflix really makes it almost silly to, but I actually planned to purchase this movie today. I wonder what they're teaching my son up at college because he sends me loads and loads of Youtube videos. He shouldn't have time; nose to the grindstone and all that! This morning he sent me a link to a really cute website called Improv Everywhere. I wasted a good 30 minutes laughing and wishing I could be in on some of these stunts. Check it out if you need an infusion of fun in your day.

With the camera being on the fuzzy fritz, I haven't been able to upload my more recent Deck of Me cards to the Flickr group. We do finally have a group symbol we can paste into our blogs courtesy of Dianna, the wonder hostess and Rhonna Farrer who graciously lent her talents to it!


Last, but not least an announcement on behalf of a friend, Michelle! She has superb taste in scrapbook & stamping supplies and her pricing for this sale is insane. She seriously is parting with amazing stuff for super cheap. If you're in the area, get there any way you can!

THE FINAL SCRAPBOOK YARD SALE
As some of you may have heard (or not), I will be moving within the next month or so. Do not cry, as I will only be moving to Frederick. However, a small place does not warrant such an extensive scrapbook supply collection. So, this will be the FINAL scrapbook yard sale I have. All items will be priced at $1, $5 or $10. I really need to get rid of so much stuff (as well as make some cash to live off of). So please spread the word:
Date: Saturday, March 15th
Time: 8am-12noon
Place: 6939 Fox Chase Road
The Meadows (Lake Linganore)
New Market, MD
Items will at least include—embellishments, scrapbooks, paper (by the sheet and pack), ribbon, books, magazines, tools, stamps, inks, alterables…and the list goes on for miles.
Brand names include—Basic Grey, Making Memories, Artic Frog, 7 Gypsies, Bazzill, Autumn Leaves, Stampin Up, Prima, KI Memories, Angel Company, Close To My Heart, Chatterbox, Cosmo Cricket, Foofla, SEI, My Minds Eye…
Thanks for your support--

Glad you are starting to feel better! We all got the flu shot, and the flu, and still have coughs, runny noses and sore throats (I'm more than a little apprehensive about singing at the funeral tomorrow with this crud). Glad you got a lot done while you unplugged, and glad you are back!

Just wrap it up and send it on over to me, save yourself some trouble. {I'm nice that way :}
