Another reason I took the Handmade Pledge

Yesterday morning, long before I was sitting and suffering in the denstist's chair, a man lost his life in a Black Friday stampede.

Please, read that again, I'll wait while you do......yes, you read that right. A Wal*Mart worker was TRAMPLED TO DEATH by rowdy shoppers. As he layed on the floor dying, more and more people continued to step on him, crushing him to death.

Oh wait, it gets even more messed up. People continued to shop and were even angry when told they had to leave because a man had been killed. It makes me feel ill, also makes me feel good about the fact that I have taken the Handmade Pledge

I have been working since early September on family members Christmas presents, it's taken a lot of time but I have thoroughly enjoyed it, almost therapeutic and with each gift I've worked on, I've prayed over it, including my hopes for the recipients wonderful 2009.

So if you're reading this, and I'm on your Christmas gift list this year, please take what I've said to heart and know how much I'd love something made with your hands and from your heart.

The Y is open, the pools are filled, I got my swimsuit and my goggles!



Going and getting my new suit and goggles made me realize just how much I missed swimming. The stress relief, the freedom, the exercise, the grace I feel in water. I am so excited to start again!!!!

So Pretty!

I hadn't taken any pictures in almost 2 weeks, save a few of the kids. No time, peeps, no time!

After finally forcing myself out the other day and taking some shots around the house, I was pretty happy, and now am jonesin' to get back out and shoot some more!

Anyway, for your fall viewing pleasure...

The Y has its grand opening on Saturday and I went down today to get my card! we signed up practically the first day you could.



It took way to long to get the Y built here in our tiny town, no-thanks to our fool city council, but major thanks to the Y for not giving up, the Horseshoe Foundation for the grant and all the concerned, SMART citizens who came out to the council meetings to voice our support.

This picture was taken last year at Conner's school's Veteran's Day Program. I couldn't grab one this year since Adam is on orders in Oklahoma.



To all who have served, along with your families, I say thank you and Happy Veteran's Day.

Wow, was last week gorgeous. The weather was warm and the leaves were the perfect color. Of course I had to put my awesome garage to some good use. So far that garage wall has been my favorite photo background yet. I only wish I had one that was portable so I could take it on shoots!



Happy Fall!

Now This is My Man

With Rahm Emanuel accepting the position as Barack Obama's Chief of Staff, I was intrigued to hear on NPR this morning, that Mr. Emanuel and I share something in common. Our potty mouth. It's no secret that I use cuss words more than I should or even like, but like anything else it's become a bad habit.

This, made my (beep)ing day.

Also, hello AMERICA! Way to stand up on Tuesday and kick some major ass. I'll be blogging more about this when I've got some more free-time.
