Back again...

Well, I finally broke down and created yet another blog. This is becoming a habit - not sure if that's good or bad. This would be Blog #3 - well, they do say "third time's a charm" - I guess we'll see about that. And this is a private blog - so I'm sorry that you'll have to sign in everytime you visit, but I got tired of the nasty commenters of the world stopping by.

I had been trying to come up with a name for this new blog. While I'd like to take credit for a little creativity - I cannot - I choose the web address for this blog based on the following SATC quote (you know how much I love that show).

"How do you bounce back when reality batters your belief system... and love does not, as promised, conquer all...? Is Hope a drug we need to go off of... or is it keeping us alive? What's the harm in believing?"

Can't you just hear Carrie Bradshaw saying that??

As for an update - there's really not much to update you on, which is another reason it took me a while to set up a new blog...we'll see how often I post. I just feel like I have nothing too exciting to report. I work, sleep and eat - that's about it these days....really! In fact, I just finished job #1 about twenty minutes ago and I have to be at job #2 in 1 hr, 40 minutes. Is that an exciting life or what?

I am off tomorrow night and very excited to report that mom and I will be going to see Harry Potter. I haven't seen a movie in quite a while and I always enjoy hanging out with my mom.
I had some blood work done yesterday and the lady left me with a heck of a bruise. My arm could be a movie stand-in for that of a heroin addicts. Ick! Very ugly.

OK - so here's a little excitement for you -but remember if I tell you everything now - there'll be nothing to post down the road...

On 8/10, two of my SB friends and I are driving to Atlanta for the day. We are planning to have lunch @ Fogo de Chao and then over to IKEA for a potential spending spree (actually I have to return a desklamp). It should be a lot of fun - they are my 2 favorite SB people.

On 8/24, I'm off to Raleigh to visit Mary and we are going to crop on Friday and Saturday night. That should be tons of fun too. I'm just getting back into scrapping and while I still don't think I have much "mojo" - I scraped up a few layouts from a couple months ago and actually submitted them for Scrapbooker of the Year - silly, I know...but it didn't really cost me anything - except a lot of color toner on my printer making copies of my layouts. LOL! I'm setting a (huge) goal for myself -I want to enter the Hall of Fame contest next year.

My favorite scrapbooker right now is Kristina Contes. Her work has such a cool, edgy look - I love it. I want to take one of her classes someday - if she's ever close by.

I guess that's all for now...happy Tuesday everyone!

Don't you know everybody's boring? Ha! That probably sounded meaner than I intended, since I didn't intend it to sound mean at all. After a while you just start to wonder what the person is up to. Even if it's just "work, gym, work, strange conversation with hubby about peaches, watched tv."

YAY!!! I'm the first poster on the new blog! :-) I'm glad you're back.

I hear you about scrapbooking mojo and NO time for creativity. Glad you have a chance to get back into it!

I knew you'd come back to us! Yay! lol

Is there a password we have to enter later to see your blog or is this it? I may switch mine over to private. I blocked anonymous comments, but that jerk only went out and got himself a profile.

Glad to be back!

Nora-Yep, just your email and pw to get in. It's basically an "invite-only" blog. My nasty commenter did the same thing after I blocked anonymous comments.
