Good Monday morning everyone..

Yep, Sis, I’m Blogging…but you gave me your bug I think, went to bed feeling Yucky and woke up feeling Yuckier…

Folks, let me tell you about my sis..she is a very kind and thoughtful person..Friday was my birthday, but I had Kaylen from Wed. till Friday and when she left I was so worn out I went to bed and slept off and on for the rest of the day and night..she’s getting close to 2 and you know what that means..yep…she’s not content to just stay and play in the room with Nana, she has to check out kitchen cabinets and things like SOS pads (She brought them to me) and the bookcase with all the pictures and whatnots, she thought she had to pick each one up and carry it around with her…thank goodness she hasn’t learned to open doors yet, so at least I can still confine her to the LR and kitchen which is one big room..She LOVES the computer room…so much for her to get into, she thinks she is in a toy store…needless to say, I don’t get much work done while she is here….so back to my sister, she cooked me the most delicious birthday supper on Sat night.

I had been telling her about cooking Swiss steak one time and how much I loved it but had never cooked it she finds a recipe in one of her many cookbooks and makes it for me, with mashed potatoes, lima beans and red Lobster biscuits. Oh it was soooo good..and I ate so much…but we still had leftovers…you see my sister can NEVER make just enough mashed potatoes for 3 people, she makes enough for 10 or more..EVERYTIME…and when she pounded the steak it grew…so we have enough left over for another 2 meals or more..LOL..thank you sis, you’re the best!

I guess you are wondering about my title today…well I’ve decided that everyone needs to get to know (if you don’t already) my fellow designers at DSO..they are all great ladies and so talented..I am going to feature one of them on a blog until you have met them all..I ‘m going to start with Jodiann..this lady is a HOOT, as she says all the time, she makes me laugh and makes me feel good inside just reading her emails.. she lives in Texas, and besides designing, she Home Schools her sons. This lady can tell a story..believe me.. just visit her Blog and check out her Dec. 9th post…and get ready to laugh and laugh…lol  While you are there just read the rest of her’s funny, informative and a mixture of just about everything..She is known to leave a few freebies here and there(wink)
