Sweet Sorrow

How was your President's day yesterday? Did you do something fun? Did you get the day off work? We spent the morning at home. Captain America took the truck in to get it's brakes looked at, and they needed fixed/replaced. Something like that. I didn't even ask how much that set us back - sigh. But, he was gone for like 4 hours doing that. Slow car place - geesh! The kids and I did a little bit of cleaning (I FINALLY found my silverware drawer in the boxes in the garage!!!) and organizing, then played for a while.

When he finally got back, we headed out on our canyon hike. It was GORGEOUS. And guess what? I FORGOT my camera. Can you believe it! I almost started crying - hehehe. But , I pulled myself together, and we still had a TON of fun. It was about a 2 mile walk (I think), and was good for the kids. They're getting a bit soft, and need more exercise. It was pretty steep on the way up, but a piece of cake on the way down - hehehe.

The BESTEST part was signing Army Cadences all the way down the mountain. Who knew my boys could sing so loud? ha! Our favorite one was "Got Me Lookin' Like Gomer Pile". It's SO catchy. Even Jimmy (3) was singing along - hehehe.

As we were headed back home (it was already dark), we noticed that the on-ramp from the highway was blocked, and there were police everywhere. As we drove past our exit, and headed towards the next, we saw a car down below that was totaled, and flipped on it's top. I don't know what happened, but it didn't look good. Dang! I hate car wrecks.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog on Friday!! You really made my day :) What nice comments, even if they were solicited - LMBO! I'm shameless, aren't I :) I know I can always count on you all for a pick-me-up! hehehe.

So, I said that I'd post the winners on Valentines day, but clearly, today is not Valentine's Day. But we did buy some clearance Valentine's stuff last night, if that counts. No? OK, sorry. I was a bit of a slacker. But, I've picked the winners, and here they are. Did you notice I said winners??? You know me, I can't do anything small. I decided to give away 1 $10.00 coupon, 2 $5.00 coupons, and 4 $2.50 coupons. There were 51 comments, so your odd of winning were 13%. Not too bad, eh? Much better than the lottery, and this one was free. Sure, it's not a million bucks, but it IS my WordArt pack. Comparable, right? ROFLMBO!!!

So, the winners are:

$2.50 coupons:
Bobbi-Lyn (email me, girl!)
Prinzess (I left you a comment on your blog)
SAHM (email me, k?)
Amy Lightfoot (I left you a comment on your blog, too)

$5.00 coupons:
Simply Sarah (it's in your inbox!)
Ginnieg (email me so I can get you your coupon)

$10.00 coupon:
breeoxd (I left you a comment on your blog :)

Congrats to everyone who won :) Hopefully you'll go get your prize, and make some FABULOUS layouts with them, then upload them to the Scraporchard gallery, so we ALL can see your works of art! Woohoo!

So, because my hubby is leaving today on his final (it had BETTER be the final one - hehehe) trip to Ohio to get the remaining crap...er...stuff from our storage shed (friends' garage - LOL!), this quote came to mind. Captain America and I both thought, hmmmm, "sweet" sorrow? What's that about. But, it's by Shakespeare, and Juliet says it to Romeo as they bid goonight to each other. It's sorrow because they are not going see each other that night, but sweet, because they are both excited for the next time they will see each other.

So, see, it's fitting! Captain America is leaving today, and I won't see him till next Tuesday-ish. But I'll be SO glad to see him when he gets back home. Part is such sweet sorry. Exactly - hehehe. I'm good, eh? LOL! Click on the image below to go to my box.net account to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like my work. Thanks!

Unfortunately I can't find your comment on my blog or where to find the coupon :( My mental status isn't the greatest at the moment...or should I say my concentration. Hope you can help me out :)
