Sad, sad after the craziness at Sandy Hook. I even had a hard time praying. Usually my prayers are "Thank you, God, for...." I had to change that and say that I couldn't even come up with anything to thank God for in that situation. I only was able to pray for peace and healing for those involved and for all those who have mental conditions-which would likely be all of us.

Anyway, a white remembrance mani-

Obviously, I am a newby, since my attempts below are not working. Well, I don't think they are, so I am leaving them, just in case.

Wish list!

Mrsrexy, over at Canadian Nail Fanatic is having a lovely giveaway sponsored by herself AND Cheeky! Those Cheeky plates are so much fun!

So, one of the gifts she has is three polishes, your choice (within reason.) Leave a wishlist.

Great! Lovely idea! Except I was dorky enough to post my entry without the list! Derp!

Since I really should have a list anyway, here it is-normal type polishes, not indies.

In no particular ranking, but by brand:
   Go On Green
   Ski Teal We Drop  Purchased at salon where we got our hair"did" for daughter's wedding
   Pepe's Purple Passion
   Merry Midnight

China Glaze-
   Cling-On (Magnetix line)
   Lush and Luxe Purchased on my first Ulta haul-4-26-2012
   Midtown Magic
   Fairy Dust Purchase for myself

   No More Film
   Starry Starry Night (sing along with me!)

   Fowl Play

Barry M- (I don't know if this brand belongs on this list, I've never seen it IRL)

So, there! A wish list! Now go to and enter for yourself, entries open until April 16th.

Thanks, Mrsrexy!

See how well this blogging thing goes with me? Same thing happened with LiveJournal. I would get on a kick and journal a few times and then nothing.

I was getting a little crazy with polish accumulation, so I gave up buying for Lent. So far, so good. Hasn't been overly hard because my $$ have been lower and my bills have been higher-but I have my dress and shoes and clutch for my daughter's wedding! And I have been getting ideas for the polish I want to go with the outfit. Just have to lose a few lbs for the dress to fit perfectly. So of course, the weight goes down a half a pound one day, up a few ounces the next. Today is a down day, so that is good. What was the difference? I worked yesterday and was up and down all day.

Hopefully my politics addiction can be ratcheted down a little now that the legislature has shut down. Jerks. At least now the balance of power has changed, and the recalls are moving FORWARD!

This Monday I will be doing the leading at my Bible study-first time. Better pray on that! I told pastor that I would lead if I weren't on call, and look at that! Not on call. So it is time to be more active and not just sitting there praying for the group.

How do you nourish your soul?

Day two-1/28/2012

Was asked to take call for four hours this morning. $12 is $12. And it might end up being more. It could happen.

Went to Amy & Tony's last night-received our Christmas gift from Mare & Jim-a Shutterfly book of our Florida vacation last year! What a great gift! We had fun looking through it together.
We also were planning this year's family camping trip. I really don't know when we will get it done. We ended up with 5 dates that worked between Amy & I, then Mare requested later in the year, but now the last two dates have been crossed off because of Amy's co-workers. At least we have an idea of where we want to go. We found a campground just south of Oshkosh on-ON!- Lake Winnebago. Tony wants to be able to go fishing, so he loves it. I think we might want to switch to High Cliff State Park, but we have a history of problems with noise at state parks. Ahem.

Finally got the extra polish off from around my nails. Currently "Stroke of Midnight" by L'oreal. Like it. Not quite black. Not glittery-except that one piece that got on because of the topcoat.

About to ruin the manicure by making marmalade. It will be worth it!

What do you call "worth" ruining manicures?

Day One

Brand spanking new!
Mostly, this is intended to be a placeholder for following other blogs, although it might end up having other element too!
