Just another Saturday...

Well, I didn't feel much like scrapping last night. I downloaded, unzipped, and combined some of my digi files instead. I need to get my two LOs uploaded today...

I did get my car back yesterday morning. It's running great although it is shifting a little harder than it used to, but then - this is a different trannie so... It ended up costing $798 - so literally just under $800 - still not a bad price. I was figuring $700-$1200 total for a replacement, labor, and smaller parts. I'm definitely glad it ended up being closer to the lower end than the higher end.

Ok, I am (finally) going to forward the “You Make My Day” award that BOTH Heather Manning and Carjazi Scraps - Diane sent to me last week. Sorry it took so long... I'd hit "publish post" and THEN remember I hadn't done it as I'm trying to run out the door to work! LOL Of course, at this point, I do believe everyone and their aunt has been hit who is in my circle so some of you are getting it again! :P

First of all, corny but true, it is going back to both of those sweet women. Diane was one of my first loyal readers, and made me realize that even if no one else read my blog she enjoyed it. She's become a great friend, and I am truly glad to be able to say that! Heather rewarded me time and again with RAKs (sometimes via Diane!), has become a good friend, and has welcomed me into her CT fold. As far as I am concerned CTing for friends is one of the best ways to do it!

Second, to Andrea who was another of my early "regulars" and also RAK'd me a few times. We seem to trade off issues at home like bad customer service, cars, etc. She's always willing to listen, and has a great sense of kindness. I'm truly greatful to have her as a friend! (PS - I'm also willing to do temp work for you any time you need/want it!)

Third, to the original DSG Gals; Dawne, Traci, and Nita. Also early regulars, these ladies invited me to be part of their growing Garden, which has now exploded into full bloom! We're up to 10 designers in the shop! (And, only 3 little CT members! LOL) Thanks ladies for making me a part of your world!

Fourth, to Kristine for honoring me by asking me to become her newest Wench. It's great to be part of the inner circle of Dork Dancing nuts! Her sense of humor is awesome... I think I've finally found some people that "get" my humor in this Dorkdom!

Fifth, to Kristin, my newest regular, and a virtual neighbor. (She's only about 20 minutes from me while I'm at work!!) It's great to have a local online friend as well... Maybe we'll even get together when the weather gets nicer as I am soooo not a winter person! LOL Thompson Park in the spring??

That's my list for now, but I do reserve the right to pop this award out later if I think of someone else who needs it! :D

I leave you with a blogthing...

It is nice to have met someone that is so close! I'm glad you found me. :D Thompson park in the spring sounds awesome!! :)

Car repairs are so expensive ugh! But I'm so glad that it ended up on the lower end of things. Glad you have your car back to. I hope u are having a great weekend. It will probably be Monday sometime before I am back here. I'll be gone all day to that race tomorrow. It is at long lake and I believe that it is almost a 2 hour drive. Please keep your fingers crossed that the weather isn't too bad. You'll have to let me know how much snow you end up with. It sounds like we could be getting quite a bit by Monday morning, so be safe. :)
