It finally happened.....

You know it had to happen one day....everyone is doing it...I am probably the last one on the planet to not have done it....they say it's addictive and they are right....I just finished and I am already to start another one! I have to be strong, I have to study for my Mid-term but hey, I got my fix today and by this time tomorrow, I will have gotten another fix......

What the @@@@ am I talking about??? Well, I'll tell you, I finally, after much trepidation and sole searching, I finally finished my first pair of hand knitted socks!!!!! Whooooo Hoooooo!!!

I really like them...they are so comfortable!! I knit them on two circulars and it was easy as pie!!! I am really hooked and totally addicted. I am going to be starting another pair tomorrow!! I had to share with you all, as you are all my most important confidants!!

Have a great day tomorrow and not to worry, the De-Tox will be going fine, because I am going to be starting another pair tomorrow!!!

And the winner is.........

Well, last week was the uber fabulous Ultimate Blog Party and it was alot of fun!! I met alot of great people and am definitely looking forward to next year...Thanks again to 5 Minutes for Mom for hosting this fabulous party!

I would like to announce the winner of the $15 Jo-Ann Gift card that I was giving away last week. The winner is: PHYLLIS W!!!!!!! Whooo hoooooo, she is very excited!!

I do believe the Phyllis fainted when she found out she had won!!!! :O)

I found the information below on another web site that I visit and I thought I would pass it on to all of you...


Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your Dr Office, the check out Girl at the market, everyone you run across.

Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this:

It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar rapist won't stick around... after a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there.....
This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

Hope you all have a great week and I will be back later...
