Just stuff

Let's see.... what's been going on the last couple of weeks.....

Had a meeting last week for a volunteer program I'm involved in.
I serve as a mentor for local high school seniors, helping them through the college application/enrollment & financial aid processes. These students are eligible for up to $6000 for four semesters at one of the three local community colleges. It's a wonderful program, and one part I really like about it, is that they have to complete community service projects during these semesters.

Am continuing to make weekly cards as part of Send Love Today, which I learned about from Jen Waters. Have made several cards this week. Haven't scrapped in a while, but am looking forward to a crop on Saturday w/Steph, Ashley, and Courtney.

Took Alison for her first dentist appointment. She did great!!

Went to a baby shower last weekend and made a MONDO trip to the grocery store. At least Alison was with Jonathan, so it was only 1.5 hours instead of 2.5 hours in the store. ;)

Finished another book, and have started another that I'm enjoying so far - The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder. It's somewhat of an easy read, but touches on some serious subjects.

Ran into an old friend, whom I haven't seen in 5 years!! It was so wonderful to see her! We have lunch/shopping plans in March.

Spent a few hours, Friday before last, with my cousin. It's the second time I've seen her since the beginning of the year, but the big thing: prior to January, I hadn't seen her in around 25 years! She found me on Facebook last fall. How cool is that?!

Am continuing to work out 3-5 days a week. Loving that.

Am going to place an order for SRM Stickers today. My friend Deana turned me on to them - they're really cute!

What's going on with everyone else?

Today is

the 6th aniversary of my dad's passing. Funny thing, I was up at 4:30, which is about the time we got the phone call 6 years ago.

I miss him more than words can say.

Not on Facebook much anymore

I got an email from a friend yesterday, checking on me b/c I haven't been on Facebook in days.
Reason being - our management at work has strongly encouraged us not to use FB during work hours. Apparently, large companies and major corporations are taking a hard look at FB usage during the workday, and are seeing employees posting during those hours. Our management offered to designate a computer for us to use FB on, but until then.... (And, I rarely even turn on the computer at home, due to being in front of one all day long...)

I'll try to be a bit better about updating my blog, as a means of communication.
Feel free to email me at, and fwd my email to anyone who's a friend, but not a blog follower.
