Office Live Workspace

For those of you who work at work and work at home...oh wait isn't that everyone? Well anyway. I want you to check out Office Live from Microsoft. It's a free download and set-up. If you have ever hurridly put files on a flash or e-mailed them to yourself -just in case - you need this! Here is a link to the page to download it and a nice little video telling you just a bit more.
I think this will come in very handy!

Playing around...

Can you tell I've been playing again? I changed my blog background again. I have been trying my hand at designing my own. It's pretty easy and kinda cool to pick out things that I like for all of the elements. Good thing I have been learning more and more html code isn't it? It sure comes in handy sometimes.

So this one is kind of bright, but I love paisley. What do you think? Better look quickly, I may change it again soon. Since I'm playing...

Sweet sentiments...

How's this for a Valentine's cake? "Huge Me?" Found this when I was browsing one of my favorite blogs to read - Cake Wrecks. Now don't click on this link unless you have a little bit time to peruse all of the hilarious cake wrecks you will find on this site. Just what is a cake wreck? Here is the definition from her blog: Cake Wrecks is about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places. Once you get started you won't want to quit.

When I first found this site, I think I spent about an hour (maybe longer - you know how computer time goes) reading old posts and looking at the crazy photos. So when you get a chance, or maybe you should just MAKE a chance - go to Cake Wrecks and check it out.

You will be laughing for hours... Happy Valentine's Day!

18,000 Days...

18,000 Days. Today, February 3, 2009, I have been alive for 18,000 days. 25,920,000 minutes. 1,555,200,000 seconds. Wow, that seems like a really long time doesn't it? In case you don't know that makes me a little past the youthful age of 49.

Some days it feels like I am about 25. Other days I feel like I am closer to 90! But I do my best to make the most of each and every day I am blessed with.

Oh, I have my moments. (Don't we all?) Moments when I stray from this Bible verse from my youth. "Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." That's from Phillipians and I memorized it when I was about 8 or 9. It's one of those things that I have managed to retain in my brain (aka "the jeanne files"). And yes, I have those days where I am not thinking about the good, the lovely, etc. You know, somehow it all gets lost and I feel like I am not living-doing-being the best I can.

But I keep on trying! I mess up. Then get up the next day hoping and praying that I will speak kinder, act with grace, be more patient with others, and think the best of people not the worst.
Thank you Lord for another day.

Total Weirdness...

Well, it happened again. Total weirdness in my little life. Sometimes I wonder if it is just me or do others seem to have just totally goofy stuff happen to them also.

Long story - short - or at least as short as I can get it without being too cryptic. Less than two weeks ago I had to go running into the dentist because I had a problem with a tooth. I wasn't sure what was going on. But after much poking. prodding, wiggling of my teeth, and not coming up with any reason for the strange things going on in my mouth, my wonderful dentist decided (thank goodness) to use floss on the teeth in the area of my mouth that I was having difficulty with. The floss caught on a corner of a crown and when he pulled it - I said "Hey that's it!" He said, Why that crown is loose! and then just "popped" it off with no effort. (Freaked me out just a little...) Seems when I had eaten some caramel candy over Christmas it kinda got sucked loose, but didn't come off, and when I ate it just felt really strange. So he cleaned it up and glued it back on. And WOW! It was even better than it had been in the two years I had had this crown. It seemed to fit better and was not nearly as cold sensitive as it was - so it had probably not been seated quite right for all that time! So weird right? I mean first the chewy candy making it loose, then the dentist and me having difficulty figuring out exactly what was going on, then it finally ending up being even better than before!

Now for the rest of the stupid goofy story. Last night during the Super Bowl, I decided to break my diet and eat two little pieces of this delicious sour gummy candy that was in the pantry. The first piece - the first bite - I felt this whoosshhy feeling and YIKES opened my mouth and found a lovely little crown stuck in the midst of the candy. I was just sick...I thought NOT AGAIN! My dear hubby said, What it came off again? And I had to say, No, it is a different crown!

I made a rather embarrasing call to the dental office saying "well...seems like I have another crown that needs to be glued back on." They were very sweet and I made a promise to not eat any more gooey ooey chewy sticky candy and that I would be back when it was my previously scheduled regular appointment time.

So how weird - two (2) loose crowns in less than two (2) weeks! I've have enough of that to last me a while. But now I have all of my teeth back in good order. And the rest of that delicious candy is in the trash right where it belongs.
