New Stuff....

I have a new article at Associated Content- "How to be an Organized Girl Scout Leader". check it out. I'm also working on another one "Rick Vs Bruce- how to tell the difference". If it doesn't get accepted at AC, then it will just be posted here as a blog entry, I think. I'm not sure if I'll submitted it to Helium or one of those other writing websites. I will for sure let you know when/where you can read it.

I'm looking forward to the weekend. It's been a long week. Finally got rid of the week long headache (thank goodness) but now I have a weird shoulder thing going on. I think I pulled a muscle or 5, and it's making it pretty difficult to move in the middle of the night. I'm taking Advil and using heat pads, so hopefully everything will loosen up and go back into place.

I'm going to Granite City with the girls from work tonight. None of us have ever been there, so it will be a fun experience!

Dis'd on the radio...

(Do people still say dis'd??)

Okay, so it wasn't me that was dis'd, but the one and only---Rick Springfield. This morning, hubby had on the radio while in the shower, I went in to help the youngest finish getting ready (does nobody understand the concept of punching a time clock except me???) and Man Cow was on the radio. He was playing a snippet of "people are people" (I can't remember who it's by, but you know the song- "people are people so why it should it be that you and I can't get along- or something like that)....anyway, then Man Cow says "Worst lyrics ever written, except for the Rick Springfield" and then they play a snippet of "Jessie's Girl". Hubby and I both laugh but for different reasons. Hubby enjoys any cut downs of the Rickster...I enjoyed the fact that he was mentioned on the radio AT ALL, and if you know anything about me, you know that Jessie's Girl is my LEAST FAVORITE SONG of all time. (Sorry, Rick) It's not a bad song, it's just not his best song. Unfortunately, Jessie's Girl and Rick Springfield go hand in hand, unless you have followed his career at all. Then, into the car, on the way to the babysitter's. "mom, play Jessie's Girl," say the youngest daughter. "I'm not even sure I have Jessie's Girl on my ipod," I say. I hear the collective gasp of my fellow Rick fans right now, but it's true, I wasn't sure. I checked, and yes I do, Both versions (Ricks and Frickin' A's) So I let the little one listen to JG for the 2 minutes it takes to get to the sitter's house. Am I a super cool mom or what?!?!?!?

Then I get to work and one of my co workers says, "Amy. Rick Springfield. November 17. St Charles. I've been meaning to tell you. Are you going?" (See some people are looking out for me! ) But I am not going. Too much other stuff going on right now. Can't do it.

But I am anxiously awaiting the new Christmas CD- "Christmas with you". I preordered from CD Universe.( CD and Shipping for under $11. I know that if you order it from Rick's Merchandise ( you can get it right away, as they started shipping on Oct 15. I was willing to wait and pay a little less. It's mostly covers, with one "remix" and one new song "Christmas with you" which can be heard (a part of it anyway) at Check it out!

Enchanted and more

Who's ready for Christmas?? You do know that it is less than 3 months away, right?? I recent signed up as an affiliate with Enchanted Potions. I've been watching their website for years, and I was previously signed up as an affiliate, but I didn't have a good website to go with it. Well, anywhere, here's the deal. I can get 30% off anything I order (They have some great products over there that I'm sure I won't want to share), I can do parties, or if somebody else is interested, I can make a team. There's really no pressure. Well, there's one thing. You have to place an order (any size) once every quarter. Nice, huh?!? The friendly people who starte this company, are awesome! I'm looking forward to making "body baskets" for my girls and maybe buying some extras to have on hand for those last minute birthday gifts.

Don't You Hate It....

when you come in on the end of a joke? Or when you know the answer to the question, but didn't hear the question in the first place?? Today, I was listening to the radio. What I hear is "Amy, what's the answer?" and then AMY says "Love Somebody by Rick Springfield". Now, had I been paying attention 5 minutes earlier, that Amy could have been me. How do I miss these things??? I don't even know what the prize was, but I don't think AMY deserved it because when the DJ's asked if she had seen Rick's Coronado concert video she said "No." Not only had she not seen it, she didn't even know about it. Hello, woman, are you not calling from ROCKFORD?? Oh, the little things that make me crazy!
