Bear was laid to rest in the back yard. She was wrapped in her favorite blanket which was a baby blue fleece. I have planted Tulips around her and will be putting a bird bath over her grave so that she can chase the birds. Losing Bear really hurts. I miss her sleeping on top of me at night. I miss her growling at the little box every time it runs. And I miss having her come in here and being a pest when she don't feel good. I guess now her allergies won't bother her any more. I just thank God she did not suffer. That she only had one quick cry and it was over. But you know I wonder if maybe her collar did not get caught on something and maybe that is what caused it. She did not even fall 3 feet and I feel like some how I am to blame for it. Maybe if I had of turned around a few seconds earlier to see what she was up to.

I'm getting a new baby and I'm calling her midnight. I know these are not the best photos but they was taken with a camera phone so I could be sent the photos quickly. You will see that she does have eye balls but she has not found her little legs yet. You can tell how tiny she still is by the way my daughter is holding her. From the little video that was sent you can tell she has a mouth on her too.



3 good ideas

Zero Gravity
When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that
ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity.  To combat this problem,
NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes
in zero gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass and at
temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.  The Russians used a
pencil.  Your taxes are due again--enjoy paying them.

Our Constitution
"They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just
give them ours?   It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked
for over 200 years and hell, we're not using it anymore."

Ten Commandments
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a Courthouse!
You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" and
"Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians!
It creates a hostile work environment.

Rest in Peace Bear

Today Bear fell and broke her neck. she is no longer with us. My heart s really broken and tomorrow is the day that I had my Boppy put to sleep. Bear will be bared in the back yard with my daughters cat. I am so heart broken right now.

Rest in Peace my sweet one.

20% off on selected items


Here it is Sunday and what have I gotten done this weekend. I have put some products in the stores. I even managed to do a load of wash. But my dishes are not done, my floors are not done and my bathroom is not done. Would anyone like to come over and clean my house for me? I sure would be grateful. I have a kitty that don't feel good today. Bears allergies are acting up so that mean she wants to sit in mommies lap. Which makes it a lot harder for mommy to work. 

I do have my grandsons Christmas stocking finished and on his little sisters I have separated the threads (not an easy tasks) made 2 tiny candy canes and was working on 2 other pieces of candy only to find out one piece of each was misprinted.  So I had to take the sequins off of the misprinted ones and flip them over. So now I have to redo the tops on those. This one is going to take me forever.

Here is a photo of my grandson's finished stocking. I really think his turned out nice. Well back to the grind stone for me. Have a very Happy Sunday.


On sale until March 12,2008 are the following products:

I am really pissed off right now. I was over at a site where I had a $5.00 coupon on my order. I bought 2 items a kit and a QP. When I went to check out one second the cart would tell me my total was 33 cents, the next second it would tell me that the total was $2.50. Now mind you if the total was $2.50 I was going to dump the QP and just pay the extra 50 cents for the kit. I really think the Beyond Mystery kit is pretty and really wanted it. I manage to get threw the check out and then on to Paypal. I pay the 33 cents for the order and then I'm directed back to the site. Only now the site has no record of the order. I know one thing if they don't give me my things soon I'm going to post the name of the site that don't know how to do a check out in great big letters here with proof that I paid for the order. Mind you this is one of the BIG sites that this has happened on not one of the little sites.


UPDATE: The site has taken care of the problem. They had no record of the purchase but was able to confirm my Paypal and issued a prompt refund and offered a new coupon if it was needed.
