Ha! It was fun seeing all of your comments roll in yesterday :) I'm glad to see that many of you are JUST like me - LOL! Lets go through the list, and see just how crazy I am.
First, #1. A few days ago, I accidently knocked a roll of toilet paper into the toilet after cleaning it. I saved it pretty quickly, and only about 2/3 of it was wet. Being that I live in the desert, and things dry SO quickly, I set out the roll for a day and a half, and it was completely dry. I know, if I didn't live here myself, I would have never believed it. Not possible in Florence, Oregon. Heck, my towel didn't even dry there. Anyway, the TP dried. And it comes off the roll. Who would have thought. Sure, it's a bit hard, but not any worse than cheap toilet paper - hehehe. Anyway, yes, I dried out a roll of toilet paper. But I don't usually do that :)
#2 - Growing up, I can remember my dad empting out the vacuum cleaner bag, and thinking he was SO cheap. Just buy a new bag. Then, I grew up, and bought the EXACT same vacuum, and realized just how expensive the bags were. SO, I've been known, in a pinch, to empty out the vacuum bag into the trash. Just make sure you do it outside. It makes a HUGE mess :)
#3 - Coming back home from Captain America's graduation at Basic Training in October, 08, my glasses broke. My dad and I glued it back together. Twice. Hehehe. The first time, it was nice and inconspicuious. And it broke a week later. The second time, we put a TON of it on there, and it hasn't been a problem since - LOL! Luckily, the glue is brownish, and so are the glasses :)
#4 - Yep, cut the feet out of the jammies. Jim is our last kid, so I don't need to be saving smaller sizes anymore :) I was sure I had some cute pictures of the boys, but I can't seem to find them. I wonder where they are??
#5 - Yep, same with the onesies. When we were living in Florence with my parent, I finally threw them all away. They were falling asleep. Those things aren't designed to be worn HARD by 5 different children - LOL!
#6 - Soda to the restauraunt. OK, this one was kinda misleading. I do it, but not because I'm cheap. I do it because they don't offere what I drink. I'd be THRILLED to but soda from the place, but no one carried caffine free, diet soda. What's up with that? Every once in a while I find somewhere, but not too often. I just order water cup, get ice, and pour in my soda. Sigh
#7 - Plastic silverware. Nope, not me - Here's the fake one. I hate doing dishes, so if I'm gonna wash something, it's gonna be a real silverware - hehehe. The point of the plastic ones are that they're disposable.
#8 - Jewelry Holder. Yep, this one is me too. My friend Maren had an AWESOME jewelry holder, and I did my best to duplicate it with my limited resources. Hehehe. This is what I came up with. My hubby said that he'd make me a better one. Until then, I'm happy with my cutting board and finishing nails :)
#9 - Yep, cinderblocks. They work :) I do like my new bedframe that came with the mattress, though. It doesn't leave cinderblock marks on your carpet, either :)
#10 - Couch from the trash. Sadly, yes. It was a good couch :) Nasty and green, but a good couch. We got it from our friends' neighbors trash in Chicago, moved it to Ohio, used it there, it sat in storage for 6 months, and it came to Texas. We sold it to our neighbors for $5.00. Ha! I made money on that couch. Now THAT'S a good couch :)
So, now you know a little bit more about me, and what makes me tick - LOL!
While I was cleaning out the garage on Monday, I found a bunch of old pictures (well, out dated, we'll say) and frames. I decided that I wanted to put up a scripture on the wall, and WordArt it. I took 4 phrases, and put them in 4 - 4x6 frames, and made the larger passage into an 8x10. I thought it looked pretty good :) And I used my favorite font, too :)
We finally divided out chores yesterday. Hopefully it'll help keep the house a bit cleaner. Hopefully. hehehe. Or at least I know who to yell at when it's messy - ROFL!!!
I figured that since Mothers Day is on Sunday, I'd make this weeks WordArt Wednesday Mother themed :) AND, I found some amazing fonts, one of which is the font used for Mother. Kevin and Amanda fonts. WOW! They have some great ones there. And there CU TOU is wonderful. All you need to do is give them a copy of what you are making. Too bad they don't have their email listed on their site. Sigh. I'd gladly send them the WordArt Packs that I'm gonna be designing/have designed with their fonts. Anyone know their email address???
