Setting up a postal scale, shipping from home and holy Cow Batman!!

    Hi There all you Sweet Chickens!!
               *blows through lips * Geesh! Am I worn out!A huge thanks to all  for sticking around my blog and being patient while I am trying to iron out all the kinks and get this baby off  training wheels and flying free!!
               So you might be wondering what keeps detouring me away from getting my blog rocking & rolling ...well, here it is: I got my computer back from the geek squad on Tuesday (after being hacked and scaring the beejeevies out of me) and I got right to work setting up my -ship from home-system. I got the scale last week, along with the printer.I had the first round of pkgspacked and ready to be shipped. I got the shipping labels at Staples, had my stash of recycled mailers with the new mailers  and boxes already to go along with my  gift wrapping paraphenalia. It was all system go!! FINALLY!! I had been waiting for  this moment forever!!...And then it happened...I went on line to to start things off... but they  were stopped before they began...the system would not allow me to send first class, only Priority shipping. I was on the phone to the 800 # 3 separate times and was given the 3 differnt answers. I did finally get ahold of my local postmaster who is setting me up with someone from the regional office to figure things out. If I knew I was going to be forced to send my pkgs priority mail I would not have ordered the scale. First class and Priority ship within the same delivery time but the difference in price comes in @ almost a 50% savings!!  I welcome any and all advice from seasoned shippers, so please do tell all!
                        Good news came through this weekend,  Lori Anderson's bead soup party kicked off and i am particpating for the first time!! I have wanted to do this since I saw the last party and this time I was in time for all the festivities!! I have a really awesome partner,and i can't wait to tell you all about her, but i just want tocheck in with her first. Hopefully tomorrow's post will be all about thesoup ingredients I want to send her and all about her.
                      Another reason I have been SO SCARCE lately is that i have been researching all about the layout of a blog, posting badges, and photos.So we will see in the A.M. Right now Mr. Sandman is tugging on my eyelids, so I will wish you the sweetest of dreams...
Until tomoroooooo...

Mindless TV. at the cost of a poor guy wearing his heart on his sleeve... and getting the ol' heave ho

I really felt like I needed to about this...
   Last night I  had a reality check into what the studios feed to the American public on a daily basis.In yesterday's blog I talked about having to go, to watch the season finale of a show my daughter and I have been following, called "The Bachelorette" I referred to the show as mindless TV. I would now like to add a few more adjectives  now to describe this show: Heartless, cruel, immature,unrealistic and a waste of money that our nation as a whole is so desperately in need of to reduce the nation's debt. This show and the countless others like it that are clogging up our airways and eating up our brains are so much more than a disapointment. I can honestly say that as I  sat watching this ridiculousness it hit me as to how messed up we really are as a nation with our, "The bachelorette" is history  in my house, as is every other show with any resemblance to it...I am just wondering, If we were all to 86 these shows out of our homes nationwide, what kind or an impact would we wind up having??...Hmmm...Food For Thought...ANYONE GAME?

Getting All my Chickens in a Row....

                   So here we are, it's Monday... and what a great response COPS  is getting!! I could not be happier for our re-intro into the great wide world  of BLOGGING!! The FIRSTgreat suprise I got was all my new buds following my blog!!-SO COOLIO!! THANK YOU- I will work very hard not to disappoint! Everyone can be sure that I will be following your blog in return- promise!! Welcome- I am so excited about all the fun and funky I have planned and  hope that you all enjoy all the content I am planning on splashing these pages with... The SECOND big suprise?? B'Sue, of gave ME a wonderful, little write up on her blog,! I was not only truly ,totally suprised( I WAS NOT BROWN NOSING- SWEAR!!(for those of you who do not get that comment, you need to go read Saturday's blog! ;-p! he he)- just being honest...)...but anyhoo B'sue very nicely wrote a couple of great, sweet pieces about COPS on her blog and even managed to fit in my group on Facebook, Crafter's Creating with Pain!! I was beyond thankful and happy with that one!!-Thank -You Miss B'Sue :)!!
                          We just came out  of a very loud and crazy thunder and lightening storm...I think the poochies are even happier than I am that it is over. I love summer storms, and I love the way everything smells after a summer storm but when they get violent and you start to hear the fire engines... those we can do without...
                          Ok, alittle something I forgot to mention the other day:
                           I will not be blogging on Saturday and Sundays-we will be blogging on Monday-thru     Friday.... (but I do reserve the right to throw one in on weekends when needed!! ;-D)

                          Gotta Go Get Dinner Going... Oh and get ready to see who is going to get the Bachelorette!!(Yup...have subjected myself to that mindless TV and have to say I am hooked... :o) )
                                                       Peace Out!!
