Facebook & friends

Facebook is a great thing for the most part. Keeps you in touch with friends near and far. Its great for following my scrapbooking, couponing & crafting sites/groups. So here is a question for you all....are you a facebook friend junky? Got to have as many friends as you can? Not me...I regularly clean out my list and am completely snobbish in who I have as friends now. I have many reasons for it. #1 I have kids. #2 I don't need everyone and their dogs knowing my life. I may have known you 100 yrs ago but there was a reason we aren't friends anymore!

I have made some great friends living in my little city. I have also made some friends who I thought would be great friends till they have turned on me. This has really bothered me for a while now. It is basically one person that was in my life (and many of my friends lives) that used us up for all we had and all our friends then snubbing, ignoring and pretending they are bigger and better than everyone else! Why are people like this? Why would you treat people like this? We all have feelings....don't become a friend very close and use me for I have to offer than snub me like I have the plague. You are no better or worse than me I feel we are all the same. I may not believe in what you believe and you may not believe in what I believe but can't we just all get along. We are not 13 and high school anymore are we? I thought we were all grown adults? No we aren't? Really? Wow!

Oh well I guess it takes all kinds to make the work go around and I am at peace with the person I am and I will accept everyone for all their flaws and misgivings cause we are not all perfect but we all need our friends in our lives!

To my friends near, far and online.....Thank you for all coming into my life and helping me be who I am today. I hope I have helped you all in some way little or big! I love and appreciate you all!!!

Now back to our regularly scheduled life.....Thank you!


Yes I am still alive

We have had a super busy yet laid back summer. The kids have been back to school and I have been getting back into a routine and worked up for all the after school activities starting soon!

But yesterday we had so me friends over to watch the Labor Day Classic (Canadian Football for my not so Canadian friends) and eat and hang out! We watched, drank and laughed....So much fun. So happy to say our team won (finally!!!) and we were all happy after the game!

We also discovered a wonderful drink thanks to a friend. Called a Porn Star....yes a Porn Star. It tasted like a popsicle. Yummy!

Here is the recipe for you to try.

Porn Star Cocktail
1/2 oz Blue Curacao
1/2 oz Red Sour Puss
4oz - 6 oz 7up


Combine the two alcohols in a shooter glass. Fill a cocktail glass with 7 Up. Drop Shot in glass... Enjoy~!

I lost count at how many I that bad? I do know I had 2 right after our friends left. I can see getting into trouble drinking these. Some recipes add pineapple juice too....yep that would be yummy too.

So now back to the real world....yep I am tired not hung over but getting up at stupid o'clock on a holiday is not my favorite thing to do....but the kids crawled into bed with me this am and snuggled so it did make it quite a bit better! So here I sit wondering if I should finally move everything from my laptop to my fancy new desktop or clean or maybe even nap? Hmmmmm napping sounds so good but I know it wouldn't last long enough! LOL!

I am still doing the Project 52 Weeks. I think I have only missed 2 weeks so far not to bad right??? I think so. i did even win one week and make LOTD too. It was a nice surprise!

This is the LOTD one.....
Here are the last couple of weeks.

SO what  do you think....I think I am getting much better but its not great....some of those ladies are amazing!!!
