Express what???

Awe...Tuesday. A much better day on the bus....I took the express in the am and also on the way home. There was a traffic incident on the way home and the bus was running 15 mins late...but I still got home and was upstairs by 6:15 mo better.

I got my phone hooked up at work today...found the post office inside the building...and went to the bank inside the handy.

Wednesday will be a busy day. My office mate will be in and I will be learning all the stuff that I can help her with....and hopefully my new computer will be here by the end of the week. I know that my boss is waiting for me to start taking over his reports....and well so am I.

Anyways....gotta get stuff ready for tomorrow....hopefully more entries and maybe a few pictures as well....

OMG...i almost forgot my huge TAC order will be here on Friday yeah!!! I'm heading to Heather's on Saturday and will bring the new stuff to show and tell....and I've got to get ready for my stamp workshop on Sunday...and party a week from Saturday....eeeeks!

Which bus do I take where???

WOWZA....Monday morning...up and at em. Time to take the bus. What the??? I managed to get onto the correct bus number but I took the local when I should have taken the express....lesson learned...ugh it was so crowded and hot really in January...I thought I was gonna melt.

I got off at the correct stop downtown, make it to the building, changed and made it to my office in one piece. Seriously. My first day was good sort of uneventful work wise...I don't have all my stuff yet, computer, phone, email, but I do have a key and an office that locks with a window. SWEET!

Had lunch at my desk, and did a few personal things, I will be bringing a book and my ipod for sure.

Bus ride home was tragic. A stalled car on the ballard bridge made it painful - left at 7am this morning and got home upstairs at 7pm...12 freakin hours - really??? I know it will get much better I just need to have faith and remember to breath!

SO I'm only gonna bring my wallet, my lunch bag and my big bag...with my change of cloths...we will see if it is much more "lighter" in the am....and my orca card should be I called and got it "fixed" so hopefully the bus driver won't give me the evil eye like he did this am when I paid with cash.

Night all....gotta get a good nights sleep!

peace out....and pray for a quick ride to work!

Who knew...

So today I made a decision to open up another bank account. Here's a little history, back in August I was doing a bit of shopping for my outfit to wear to my sweet grandma's funeral. I was at store purchasing a pair of shoes when my visa debit card was denied. Really? SO I wrote a check and headed to the car to call the bank.

When I got in the car, the bank was actually calling me....telling me that there had been a suspicious charge attempted on my card so they shut it down so I won't get jacked. I was happy that they caught it, but grumpy that I would be without my faithful trusty visa debit card for up to 10 days...what the??? Anyways, I went to the bank grabbed a bunch of cash and they headed to Spokane. After coming home a couple days later new card showed up. I had decided on the trip to Spokane, that I would open up a separate bank account at another bank in case that happened again, and use if for all my purchases to the Angel Company with my customer orders. Well you know how it busy forgot about it.....

Until....last Thursday. It happened I have been operating on cash and checks the last week and after doing a bit of research, I opened another account at a different bank for all my Angel Company customer purchases...and of course, when I got home, my new replacement visa debit card was in the mail. BUT now it's no worries about being "cardless" again.

I also went to the new QFC across the street to pick up a few groceries and bought a kitty toy for the princess....its a purple fish, with long pink feather tails and a bell on it....i gave it to Tanzy when I got home, and she has been playing with it ever since...and that was 30 minutes ago...well with the $2.99. to do something....

Cards, Cards and more cards

This last Sunday, I had my customer workshop at the infamous Roundtable. Here are the cards that we made. All stamps, paper and ink are from The Angel Company. On the tree, I used a product called flower soft, I need to put more on, as the gals kept looking and feeling the texture and most of it fell off...oh well.

Now that it's 2010

Hello out there! I know it's been about 6 months since I last blogged. Lots has happened.
My sweet grandma passed away this summer, and then I was laid off from work. After the shock and awe wore off...well....I made some changes to my life.
I started to re-do, de-clutter and re-organize my life and apartment. I had my apartment repainted, and got rid of lots of stuff...and my apartment is almost put back together the way I want it.

I still have a few things left to do and I really need to get them done by I start my new job on MONDAY...Finally!!!

I also got a kitty. She is 8 months old and soooo sooo cute. Anyways, I have got my desk/computer set up just the way I want it and it seems that I should be able to post more here now. Or that is my goal.'s the kitty....isn't she cute?
