New meaning for "couch potato"

Hello to all.

Today I am obsessing about our couch...or lack of a stable one that is. The couch we have was rescued from Mom & Dad's basement 11 years ago. They had probably rescued it from someone else's. It has SEEN BETTER DAYS!

As you know, soon Gregg will be resting upon the couch for days on end, and for some reason, I am finding this idea to be unacceptable. SO, I have been frantically selling the Mary Kay to pay for a couch....all good enough, but we want a GOOD one, seeing as we would never actually PAY money for junk. THe dump just isn't providing a nice black leather sofa. Hummm. ANyone need some Mary Kay? Hee hee.

Have a great day relaxing on your couches!

Lara Croft...

My living room makes me feel like Lara Croft...Tomb Raider extraordinare.

I always liked the scene where she rides this giant wooden beam pendulum back and forth until it crashes through whatever it was she wanted to crash through.

I now have one of those great beams hanging over my living room couch (maybe it will fall on it and we can get a new couch!), aiming for the wall.

My ever resourceful husband has built a "projector" for our "viewing pleasure". The screen will be huge, and we will be in our media glory once it is "tweeked out".

Keep looking at the fotopage for updates of it hanging up! It will be a conversation starter that's for sure.

Living life and loving it...married to my Thiessen "cheapo" man... just kidding, I love him and all the goodies he on occassion brings to me after he has saved them from their demise.

Good friends, good times

Isn't it great to have good friends that can make you go AHHHHH....

To actually relax and enjoy one another's company without feeling the need to "entertain" or "go out" or anything.

This weekend we had some good friends over, see the fotopage if you wish, and had fun just "hanging out". I think the girls dominated a little of the time, but it was fun to play memory, twister, etc, and watch old movie "the ugly daschound".

And again, we are feeling blessed, even though it is looking like our lives will be on extreme-busy mode for the next 2.5 weeks until after Gregg's knee surgery...I'm actually looking forward to that because life will HAVE to slow down! Ha ha.

I am getting back into my Mary Kay more, and have 2 parties this week and 1 next week. I want to get it being more productive again. The possibilities are endless with it, and it kills me to see that with "just a little more" I could be "making a whole lot more". Making more of my time I guess.
Well, Gregg's off for a night shift, and I need to get some sleep.
Good nite all.
