State of the Union...

Loved the presidents speech! That's the Obama I know and love! I'm glad he put the Republican's in their place. They need to get on it and start working to pass necessary legislation to get things done. Their filibustering on everything is getting old! And I am about fed up with John Boehner. Everytime I see him and his fake tan I just want to smack him up side his head. And every time he says that none of his constituents want the public option on healthcare, I want to jump up and say "You Lie!!!" I don't know anyone who doesn't want the public option, and I have sent him many emails telling him so! I definitely am NOT voting for him when he runs for election again! And I will be doing the happy dance if he doesn't get re-elected!!!

Ok, I got that out of my system! Now I can go to bed and not be running it around in my head all night. Love ya all.... Patti

New Year for Everyone!

Thankfully 2009 is finally over. 2010 is a new year and I have plans to make some changes. Life moves fast, you either have to roll with it or jump out of the way! I also hope all of you are making changes this year in your lives for the better. Please Recycle, Reduce, Reuse Whenever You Can!

Last week I went over to Miami-Jacobs and checked into their Vet Tech degree program. It sounded cool and I was all set to go in that direction until I realized I was going to have to learn how to put an IV into some poor little animal, or give them a shot, or anethesia. I just can't do it, I would love to be able to, but I just can't. Soooo... now I am either going to take the Health Information Technology or Medical Office Management. I am more of a paperwork girl, billing people, organizing offices, transcribing notes, not having to look at the bloody stuff in life! I have an appointment tomorrow to fill out financial aid papers. If I can't get financial aid I will have to come up with another plan that doesn't involve going back to school.

I also plan to get organized in the new year. I need to get some more scrapping stuff put up on ebay. I really need to get about half of the stuff cleared out of my scraproom and sold. It is just crazy to have so much stuff and not use it, or need it. I'm sure I needed it at the time I bought it though! LOL I just want to be able to feel creative when I am in my scraproom and right now it just fries my brain to even have to sit at my scrapping table. All creative ideas are immediately blocked, and that's no good!

I have dozens of baby afghans to make this month. Lots of preemie babies are depending on me. Well, not just me, but our AC4C group. What a great group of ladies!

I will be writing more about the other things I am planning to do in 2010. I have lots of ideas that I need to carry out. Gotta go for now. I have a few things to get done yet before I can go to bed. Later all....
