BRAK for Cam and RAK for me!

My son Cameron is turning 8 on Friday!! I can't believe how fast time flies!! We set his party for Sunday because most of my family doesn't work then, but he just keeps insisting that we are going to have it on Saturday. We'll probably have a small cake or cupckes on Friday and give him a present to tide him over!! Yes Terri (Brat Cards), I do remember how exciting it was to have birthdays, but that ended, well let's just say a while ago!! In April, I will be 40 and I just can't believe it!! I know I feel old, but I was hoping to stay around the 30's a bit longer and maybe let Cameron catch up with me. I'm glad I didn't have him when I was young and wild, but now I just can't keep up, especially with the Fibro and I feel like he is being cheated, it makes me sad because we used to do soooo much together and it's sooo hard for a young boy to understand. Although when he doesn't want to do something he tells me about his aches and pains now, not good. I really need to find a miracle and get back on track!!
BRAK for my son Cameron from Chris son of coffeestamper on SCS!! Isn't this just adorable!! I love the colors and the layout!! Cameron said wouldn't it have been funny if he used Pixie Pink!! LOL! Even funnier that he knows the names of the colors!! Thanks so much Chris and Sue, you made his day. He can't wait for his birthday, so this was good to hold him for a while!!
This gorgeous creation came to me from my wonderful friend Shirley AKA wannabcre8tive on SCS! I love the colors, papers, flowers, glitter and shine, but most of all the love!! Thanks so much Shirt!! I looove it! You're so thoughtful and I'm sorry it took m sooo long to post it!! It has been sitting on my desk being enjoyed though!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

What it means to be me! So true, it's scary!

What Deb Means
You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.
You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.
People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are full of energy. You are spirited and boisterous.
You are bold and daring. You are willing to do some pretty outrageous things.
Your high energy sometimes gets you in trouble. You can have a pretty bad temper at times.

OK, So I was tagged a few days ago by Sherri and Dawn...

So I guess it's about time I get on with it! Thanks a lot Dawn and Sherri, no seriously Thanks for thinking of me!

Here are the rules:1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I can't think of seven people I know well enough to tag that haven't already been tagged! So if you're reading this, leave me a comment so I can check out your blog and make some more blogging friends. Otherwise, I'll remain pitiful!! Hahaha!

2.Since my income has been cut nearly in half due to my being on disability and my bills have not, I'm supposed to be behaving myself. However, I bought several things this week which I just couldn't resist any longer and when my hubby finds out I'm bound to be hanged. I have a serious condition with purchasing things and not even using them, so I vow to use my new stealthily obtained stamps this week and create something. So you can keep me honest, I got Hey Chica, The Witches from Starving Artists (thanks to my enabling blogging friend Donna), a couple of Riley's, and just a few Bella's which I haven't received yet!

3. I recently went from a size 16T to a size 9T pants and from a XXL shirt to a medium or large, so I have lots of baggy clothes in my closet. I bought some new ones, but as I continue to disintegrate they are baggy as well. So most days I lounge around the house looking like a hobo. I have no ambition, everything hurts, and from the time I get up in the morning, I look forward to going to bed and when I get there I can't sleep. Pathetic eh!

4. Ohh man, This is bad! I'm sitting here trying to think of something cheerful to say!! My friend Pat Smethers (there's a link to her SCS gallery on the side car) totally cracks me up! No matter what kind of mood I'm in, she gives me the belly laughs. So I just want to say thanks to her and let her know how much her friendship means to me. Thanks Buddy, love ya!! I have met so many wonderful, fun, and inspiring people through this blog and SCS and I'm so grateful to God for each one of them!

5. I miss the sun and the snow hasn't even started yet!! It's been pretty nippy here and I'm fading. I spent most of the summer lounging in the sun because it just felt sooooooo goooooood!!

6. I looooove to go Garage Saleing!! Most of the time I buy nothing, but I just have a thing for other people's junk I guess. This summer I had a Garage sale from before school ended until after it started. Most days I didn't get one customer because we live in the boonies, but it got me out of bed and into the much beloved SUN! I'm hoping there will be some sales this weekend and that I can talk myself into going! I recently discovered consignment shops and I looove them too!

7. I dream of winning the lotto, not so I can get out of debt, but so I can get together with my Twisted Sistahs from SCS and hug them and laugh until someone pees their pants!! LOL!!!

Sorry this was so dreary, but I've been home alone all day for a long time!! You'd be surprised to know that both my husband and my son are very funny, but not me!

So I'm going to tag:
Donna from Sernity in Stamping because she enables me!
Deb Neerman at Paper, Ink, Scissors and Stamps because I'm jealous that she posts so much!
Lim at The Voices in my Head because I hear them too!
Lee at My Reality.........It's All Good! because she's sweet and I think she'll do this!
Judy at Design's by Nanny because I wish we were related, so she'd make me some shirts! LOL!
Paula from Paper Possibilities because I don't know her, but recently fell in love w/ her blog!
and Jean at It's in the Cards because well she's just too cute!

Whew, I did it!! Hope you all have time to play!!

Hee Haw Blog Candy at Donkey Smiles!!!

Please help Michelle at donkeysmiles celebrate three things - her almost 25,000 Blog Hits, Her Dad's Birthday and those fabulous new Donkey stamps from Alota Rubber Stamps! They are too cute as is her blog, just wait until you see that Donkey Smilin'!!! Don't forget to check out her other amazing creations while you are there!!

Thanks and Good luck!
