Sanely Insane SNAGS

Photobucket

Actually, for once I didn't have one of those days but most times I feel like my head is stuck somewhere it shouldn't be.

On to my title today, I know everybody has "that" house in the neighborhood that goes so far with decorating that it's downright tacky. LOL..well, just when you thought I was bordering tacky with this "house" of mine here at Blogger, I had to go and add more toys. Oy, lol. I think that after a day or two, I will go back to my plain old white (in fact I'm sure I will) unless I make my own background. Thanks, Indigo! Obviously, I found the web site. I'm going to mess around with making my own when I get some time. Anyway, indulge this old crow for a day or two.

My BF and I went out last night to watch the football games at the Days Inn lounge. He was my DD. It was a very good night. He did super well because the crowd was small. I actually got to spend the night.

I called the dealership about my service engine light today. It's a second generation thingie and has to do with emissions. They said to just let it go. It may go off by itself in a week or so. It probably is a sensor. I'm not sure if it's covered by my warranty or not. I may have my son take it to the place he used to work and put it on the computer to make sure it's nothing essential. I really don't think it is but Megan is going to DC with it on Halloween weekend.

Becky continues to feel somewhat better each day. Megan is having a heck of a time with her job applications. She graduates in two months and has been getting flat out turn downs. She is having a heck of a time finding a part time job in the meantime. Betty, I told her about your prayer list and to be positive. She just laughed and asked that you pray extra hard for her because she doesn't feel lucky.

Whoo hoo, I gave my BF his scale back after he got home from the hospital because he needed to make sure he wasn't retaining water. I was shocked when I stepped on it last night and lost 5 more lbs. Probably about 12 since July. I guess the walking and tweaking the diet a bit is helping. Since I'm tall, my clothes are only starting to get loose.

I still didn't get my outside decorations up yet. Dang, I'm lazy. I did buy a scarecrow but refuse to pay $6 for a bale of hay so back to Walmart for cornstalks and pumpkins. I was supposed to do that today but did nothing except grill a pork roast and potatoes. And back to work again tomorrow. Where does time go when you aren't at work??????

Happy fall, ya'll....it's still warm but air has that fall scent to it. HUGS n LOVE CHRIS

Great tags, Chris. Thanks for sharing. Way to go on the weight loss - it's raining over here right now, so walking is out of the question (I prefer sun), lol. Tell your daughter to not be discouraged. I'm sure a job offer will come along, soon. ((HUGS))

It's Just Me ~ Katie! said...

This has to be one of my Favorite tags! I find myself there often - sometimes in other peoples as well. I love your site and think it's fun for the holiday. Take care and enjoy the rest of your day off.

Love that bat and the ghosts flying around your journal. Very cute! Congrats to you for the weight loss! I'm proud of you! I didn't realize you are tall? How tall are you? I'm 5ft 10 inches.

Nice to have gone out with BF and have fun. Good luck with the car. As long as it's running right and won't leave you stranded I won't worry.

Tell your daughter to keep on trying. Something will come up. Meantime, you can bet she's in my prayers.
Love you, Pam xoxox

Indigo said...

I love the top tag on this entry, I snagged it. Sounds like you had a great night out with the BF. Whoo hoo, on losing that extra 5 lbs. I think at our age days literally fly by. I remember wishing I could get through a day faster, when did that happen? (Hugs)Indigo

Our engine light came on recently in our car and then our car started acting so silly. We took it in and they said the computer was shot? On a 3 year old car. What? Luckily, the warranty was good. We had to pay 300 bucks for 2 new sensors though. Ugh. Hope its nothing serious.

D said...

good luck with the car. Oh I love the smell of fall air.. makes me happy :) Have a great day
hugs

lisa jo said...

i like how your blog looks. SO glad you and BF got to go out again. So glad to hear Becky had a good day....it is worrisome that Meg is having issues finding a job....SIGH.
Love your tags. The emission light cost me $275 each time it came on..i let it stay on once for a year...believe me, this is common on newer cars.
Much love my friend

Janie said...

Chris your journal looks great! I think it looks great and not tacky. So glad that Becky is feeling better. Will keep all of you in my prayers. Hugs, Janie

Emmi said...

Jan said...

I have to admit to snaging your graphic ,Pleaesed you enjoyed the match with your boyfriend ,good luck to your daughter job seeking and well done on your weight loss see you round at the quiz ,well done winning last week ..love Jan xx

Brittany said...

Yes i used to make Tags. I had been doing that for quite some time, was a pretty Advanced Creator. and then MySpace took over that world for me. I got into making MySpace Layouts...which eventually led to a career in Website Design.

Over time i learned how to read HTML as if it was English. So i took my Graphic Art and made it into MySpace Layouts and such.

I guess i just don't have the time to make Graphic Tags and Animations any longer. I think that's why i never got back into it. Most of the time...I get home from work and after working with computers all day, getting on one at home doesn't appeal to me LOL.

I still dabble though...most of the graphics in my journal i created...with the exception of ones ordered from friends such as you guys.

ELLIE said...

so glad you all enjoyed the game out on the town - how very cool!!!
CONGRATS on the weight loss - every lil bit counts all the time - that is wonderful!!!
Have a beautiful tuesday!!!
hugs--Ellie

I pray every day for the people on my list. I take the list with me Chris to make sure I don't forget anyone, LOL. Megan's the first name of the list I made, but I pray for everyone by name and specifically what their request is and then I pray over the whole list. I know God hears every single prayer and I know he will answer them in his perfect timing and we will give him the honor and praise! I know what she means though because I get to feeling down a bit at times waiting for son to get a job, but then I remember it is good to wait for the Lord because his timing is always right, so we'll keep waiting and praying.

glad you had a nice evening with your BF!!

glad Becky's doing a bit better!!

betty

Joan said...

Hi, Great tags you do such a great job. We do not decorate for fall or Halloween the way you do in the US there will be a few pumpkins out in a week or so but that will be all wish we did though it looks great. Love Joan.

Joyce said...

I love how you fixed up your new blog...and the tags always are awesome. Wow, what a good idea to go and watch the football games elsewhere...what a great date night. So happy to here BF feels better, Becky too...and Megan will get some good news I bet on her resumes soon. I decided what is in my yard is it this year...no spooky stuff for Halloween...just a nice Fall look! Hope you have a beautiful Wednesday...many hugs and love you!!!

Joyce

Jeannette said...

I'm glad you had a good night out with your BF. I hope Megan will find a job soon, it must be disheartening for her to get turned down. Well done for losing those pounds, I'm sure I've lost somne on holiday trekking through rainforests and deserts! Jeannette xx

Sharon said...

Glad Becky is getting better....I love your new "home". Thanks for the layout info..I'm hating the regular stuff blogger has. My day off flew by too - don't they always?

Chrissie said...

Congrats on the weight loss you're doing something right. I like the deco it's cute, but it's your page. Tell your daughter she is very lucky that she has a wonderful family that cares about her. She's luckier than she even knows. We all have bumps in life.
Hugs, Chrissie
