In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly.Fill a favorite antique container—such as a wooden bowl, old spice tin or old canning jar—with the mix. Set the container out. Be sure to make plenty—it could disappear quickly!

Thursday, March 22, 2007
I couldnt resist any longer I had to go check out my Visual DNA!! I saw it on the Buzz Queen's post a while ago and finally decided today to go check it out!! It was a lot fo fun!!
Check out your VISUAL DNA ....See how yours looks!!
So from my Wordless Wednesday post last week you learned that my little princess LOVES to play with make-up well the other day she managed to talk her brother into giving her a little make-up Tattoo on her back guess she decided she needed a butterfly!!
The eye shadow they used was this creamy stuff instead of powder, anyways HUGE MESS!!!
Ended up all over my nice white door and her bedroom wall! Thank god for a big strong dad and some good dish soap, scrubbed it right off!! Her on the other hand HOLY SMOKES was it hard to get off her! We have decided from now on if the princess wants a tattoo she needs to ASK and we will ponder a nice rub on one instead!! And as for her brother he is going to stick to art work on paper instead of bodies!!
When she first came out into the living room it took every ounce of self control I have not to die on the floor laughing!! Just the way she came out was way TOO FUNNY!!!
Aren't kids FANTASTIC!!

Its FINALLY here!! I've been patiently waiting all week for FRIDAY and now its here!! HURRAY!! Tonight the Family will be going to cheer on our local hockey team the KOOTENAY ICE!! GO ICE GO!! A very good friend of ours daughter got free tickets from school for being a good girl on the playground!!(way to go H-P)They are all ready going to the game so they didn't need the free ones so she was kind enough to share with us!!! WE are all very excited!! My hubby mostly! Hes a HUGE hockey fan and loves every chance he gets to go support his local boys!!
The hockey game will be followed with the best part of the evening! GIRLZ NIGHT OUT!! with my Woodland LOVELY"S!! The kiddies will go home to bed with the hubby and I will continue the evening with some tasty cocktails followed by some much loved DANCING!! I Cant wait!!
In honor of ST.PATRICKS day tomorrow I decided to kick our evening out off with some pretty green JELLO SHOOTERS!!! This is my favorite way to kick off an evening out!!
I've decided to be kind to my dear friends this time and only made a half batch!
The recipe is quite simply! Just the way I like recipes to be!!
Choose your favorite flavour of JELLO! (For St. Patti's I picked up some FRUIT FIESTA Jello it's delicious and green! PERFECT!)
Boil your 1 cup of WATER, Pour into bowl with Jello powder, Stir til Dissolved
Add 1/2 COLD WATER
& 1/2 Vodka (rum could work as well I prefer vodka)
Pour into Shooter cups (I get mine from the dollar store, they are plastic and work GREAT!)
Refrigerate until PARTY TIME!!
Allow at least 2 hours to set!
My husband being the very intelligent man that he is has informed this morning that the farther in advance you make the jello shooters the more lethal they become! I received a brief science lesson from my beloved explaining that when the sugar is mixed with the hot water and alcohol it begins to ferment making more alcohol! Its not recommended that you make them to far in advance as you may harm your consumers accidentally! Alcohol poisoning is not fun from what I hear!!
Well this should be a GREAT NIGHT!! I''ll let you know how the Jello was! I'll try and get some pic's!!=) they are always fun to share the next day!!

They are running the AD again on Friday, interviewing next week and then they will make their decision and inform candidates accordingly! Now I am forced to sit and wait for the next week and a half or so, replaying the interview over and over in my head, questioning "if I had answered this question differently or at all!!!" I hate waiting for things, even more than that I hate waiting for things that I want really badly!!
Guess all I can do is hope that they saw me for the great person that I am and feel I will be the best fit for the position!! (BECAUSE I SOOO WOULD BE!!)
Here's my next dilemma do I wait to hear back from them before I go search for plan B? or do I just go out and find plan B while I wait??
For now I'll wait I'm exhausted after all that stressing, in the end I spent about 5 hours on my cover letter and resume 12 hours stressing & all for a 10 minute interview!! NICE!!
Monday, March 12, 2007
I have concluded I have terrible nerves and should probably seek professional help about this condition.
I think I'll go Google Interview preparation and go do some reading! Its been a couple years since my last interview so I want to be fresh!
My foots already through the door now I just need the rest of my body to get in!!
I'll just be my charming self and they'll be sure to love me!! =)
I'll keep you posted!
I worked @ H&R Block (u know the income tax guys!) It did that for 7 years, I enjoyed it but mostly because of the people I got to work with and the fact that it was seasonal! By the time I hated working, tax season was over! I have taken their income tax courses and I prepared taxes for 4years. It was the kind of job you loved to hate!! I loved all the different people I got to meet at work, but who likes TAXES!! Most people hated you as soon as they sat down at your desk just because you where going to be the person that got to inform them they now had to pay CANADA REVENUE AGENCY thousands of dollars after already paying taxes each week all year long. Who would want that job.
It did have its flip side however you would get the people who LOVED you because you where the one who informed them CRA was going to be sending them a cheque for thousands of dollars!! Last tax season was my last and I gracefully ended my career as an assistant office manager! Good place to leave off I think!
That leads me to now! I need a job! We have been trying to get by on hubby's income alone and while it is a good income its self employed income so sometimes its inconsistent! Our line of work is very dependent on good weather as well so sometimes winter can be a little rough!
Ive been procrastinating because I hadn't really seen any jobs I really excited me! Until Friday when the paper came! I've had my eye on this add in there for a hotel in town that's hiring I figured if I had to do anything like that a hotel would be FUN!! To my dismay turns out I waited too long because the job is no longer in the paper! However in its place was a job I a have fallen absolutely in love with and I haven't even been hired or interviewed yet! Its all I can think about since I read it!! I read over the ad and it just SCREAMED... HIRE ME!!
Its office work but I like office work! I just don't like doing taxes!! lol I'm far to opinionated to be in that line of work it was going to get me into trouble eventually! DAM thieving Government!!
Coincidentally enough my husband did the stone work on the man's house who is doing the hiring so that may just give me the extra advantage I need to score this absolutely dreamy job!
I worked on my cover letter to attach to my resume for HOURS tonight trying to make it just right! I have always said that your cover letter is your marketing tool the product being yourself!
You need to sell yourself in that cover letter so the potential employer so the employer realizes you are the perfect eprson for the job! MY problem is Im terrible @ selling myself!!
Which leads me to the next reason for my procrastination. I am absolutely DREADing having to be interviewed for a job! I shutter just at the thought!
I'm a great person and a super employee but interviews make soo incredibly nervous it's sickening! My vision goes all blurry and my whole body shakes & I normally end up laughing uncontrollably! Not normally a good first impression!
I want this job so badly though I will make sure I do NOTHING to mess up my chances!
If I didn't care I would not have edited my cover letter a million times! I'm still not sure its good maybe I can get some of your friendly advise
Here's the one I wanted to send!!
Dear Potential Employer;
I saw your job posting in the paper and its all I've been able to think about since!
I think I would be absolutly perfect for this position!! Please just hire me and you wont be sorry! I promise!!
Despretly wants job!
ok ok I know that 's not going to get me hired so I continued to work on it and this is what I came up with!
Let me know ...Would you hire me???
Dear Potential Employer
I would like to apply for the position you have available for a Financial Centre Administrator.
My 7 years of office experience has left me with a multitude of skills and I feel that such skills along with my eagerness and ambition to learn and grow within an organization would make me a positive addition to your company.
I am a productive independent worker and an enthusiastic team player.
My upbeat and energetic personality make me easy to get along with and pleasant to be around.
Previous work experience has taught me how to be quick and effective at
multi-tasking in an organized and efficient manner.
I have also gained leadership qualities, computer proficiency, and great communication and problem solving skills.
I am dedicated, dependable and strive for excellence in all that I do.
I look forward to the opportunity to discuss my qualifications for this position in more depth and thank you in advance for your consideration for employment.
I go tomorrow morning to drop of my resume and interviews are being held Tuesday and Wednesday, The ad says only candidates selected for interview will be contacted so I figure I should know by Wed at the latest!!
Wish me LUCK!! I need all the help I can get!!

Instead of tanning, the kids and I will be CRAFTING, CRAFTING did I mention that we will be CRAFTING?? I have been promising my son (who loves to do crafts) for weeks now that over the break we will do TONS of CRAFTS!! Of course I'll share each and everyone with you here!=) So keep visiting for tons of fun crafts you 2 can do with your kiddies!
I thought I'd kick it off with a real FUN one my son did at school this year. He's in grade 2 and has done some pretty neat stuff this year! The teacher was kind enough to send home step by step instructions on how to do this one @ home. HAVE FUN!!
Things you need:
1/8 or 1/4 cup of GLUE (sparkly GLUE works GREAT!)
1 Teaspoon of BORAX SOAP
1/4 cup of WATER
How to make it:
1.) Pour GLUE onto a plate
2.) Add SPARKLES if your using white glue
3.) Mix BORAX & WATER
4.) Slowly add small amount of BORAX/WATER solution to the GLUE while stirring (Popsicles are good fingers work too.)
5.) Once GLUE is FIR, pick it up ad begin rolling it between your hands to form a BALL!
6.) Spend ENDLESS hours ENJOYING your new BOUNCY BALL!!
1. I will tell you what song makes me think of you.
2. I will tell you what tattoo I think would suit you.
3. I will tell you my first opinion of you.
4. I will tell you the color or flavor of jello that I'd wrestle you in.
5. I will give you a nickname.
I have no one to blame but myself its not like anyone ties me to the computer til all hours of the night or should I say early morning! I've always been a night person being a kid sucked having to go to bed when normal people did!! I swear I was a Vampire in another life or maybe an Owl I was definitely nocturnal! All this would be well and good if I did not have children that required me to get out of bed in a few short hours!! I'm still fairly young so I can normally go on long bouts of insomnia without to many side effects! I'm sure my lack of ZZZ's is a direct link to my rapid mood swings and just general crankiness lately!
I don't mean to be a B****! I just AM!! I've been tormenting myself with sleeplessness since I got pregnant with my son 8 years ago its just become routine. Night time is MY time!! All day I am a MOM, I am a very strong willed 3 year old's mom (the 7 yr old is at school all day! I love school!!) and this 3 year old is a great one but lately she sure is testing the water! That too could be a direct link to my general crankiness or a direct result of my crankiness either way at some point in the day shes becomes not very fun!! She may look cute but she's a devil in disguise!
My favorite time of day is when I tuck both my babies into their beds, kiss them good night and tell them I love them!
My second favorite part of the night is when they are fast asleep in their beds and quiet as church mice!! Now I can sit and be ME!! I don't have to fetch anything for anyone or clean up anything! I can sit on the computer and actually pay attention to what I'm doing! Most nights I spend editing post I tried to start earlier in the day that I don't dare publish until I've had a chance to sit and reread them coherently!
My only problem is that I enjoy this time so much I don't want it to end which leads to me staying up until early morning playing online POKER & BLOGGING!!
What time do you go to bed?? What time to you wake up?? Do you feel the sleep you get is enough to function & contribute to society effectively??

Today my hubby had asked me to play in this tourney hosted by a Poker Forum he belongs to called Railbirds. Members of railbirds are everyday people who all share a love for the game of Poker! 98% of them are excellent poker players who take the game quite seriously! At http://www.railbirds.com/ you can chat with other players, Blog poker tips or just plain rant about the donkey who called your Ace Ace with 3,4 off suit and won! Its all poker all the time! They also host private daily freerolls for members only! That's what I played in today!
I did surprisingly well, I even shocked myself! I really surprised my hubby when he came home from work to find me still playing with a nice sized stack! After 2.5 hours of playing only the PREMO hands, I went ALL IN with pocket Queens. I gracefully placed 20th (out of 600) and won $1.20, not a bad return for a free game! If I had to get beat out holding anything I was glad it was with my ladies:)
Everything I've learnt about online poker I've learned from my hubby! However our style of playing couldn't be more different! Everyone has their own style and that couldn't be more true for the 2 of us! Poker for him is all about Math and Strategy, very heady! If you ask me Poker is 30% brains, 20% FUN & 50% bullshit LUCK! If luck wasn't involved it wouldn't be gambling! And if it wasn't FUN no one would want to play, You don't need much brains to play the game,
You do however require some brains in order to successful and win big money!
I don't think about the cards other people are holding, I simply wait for my premo hands (AA, AK, QQ ) BET them accordingly & hope for the BEST! (Brains,Fun, Luck)
This is probably why I'm not sporting a beautiful W.S.O.P bracelet but my game will only improve the more I play so I'm not giving up on that dream just yet instead I'll take my free $1.20 and see how much $$ I can turn it into!
One of the sites we play on is offering series freeroll events eventually leading to Paid Seats into the World Series of Pokers Main Event which has INCREDIBLY prize payouts!
Any one can buy a seat into the W.S.O.P but it'll cost ya!! $10,ooo.oo to be exact!!
I think I'll keep trying @ the freerolls or see how much my $1.20 turns into.
The freerolls go off every 5 mins so you have lots of opportunity!
Ill get lucky one of these days and actually win one! Im gonna go try Round 1 right now!
Wish me luck!
I'll keep you posted on my progress to becoming the next Worlds Greatest FEMALE Poker Player! & my Quest for my very own W.S.O.P bracelet.
THE FINAL WORD ON NUTRITION After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health:
1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
"Gold Wrapping Paper" I received this from a friend who had a choice to make. It said that I had a choice to make too. I've chosen. Now it's your turn to choose. The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her five year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and then said, "This is for you, Momma." The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner. "Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?" She had tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Momma, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until it was full." The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger. An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life. Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there. In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given a Golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, friends and GOD. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold. You now have two choices: 1. Pass this on to your friends and family on your mailing list. 2. Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart. As you can see, I took choice No. 1.

I have 2 younger kids at home so I haven't wanted to make the time a real pet requires! Maybe in a few years when the kids are a bit older! Until then I am quite happy to take care of my newly adopted blog pets! Spunky the monkey likes it when you feed him bananas...( you can do this by clicking on the more tab inside his box!) Don't make it easy for him though he likes a challenge! Place them around the tree!
Freddie the puppy has a bag of doggy treats in his box he likes when you feed him those! He also likes when you throw the bones that are hiding inside the more tab in his box!
These are definitely my kind of pets!NO MESS to clean up and they are they dont make a sound!!:)
Our family has not had the greatest start to 2007, who needs cable when you live reality t.v!
I received a call from my hubby at around 10:30am, Normally I enjoy calls from him but not of this nature! Turns out our son did not return to class after recess and they could not find him!
Now I'm sure if the school had not been fully aware of our series of unfortunate events this temporary misplacement of my child would have gone a lot smoother! Q~ball is not the type of kid to to just disappear without a logical explanation!
My hubby immediately upon receiving the phone call from the school left work and went to the school where there still was no sign of Q! His stuff was all there boots, coat, backpack! Where the hell is he? Everyone is frantic (teachers, friends,parents!!) The R.C.M.P where called and put on alert & my hubby and our employee began the search driving around the school area & home! I felt devastated and completely helpless while my child was out there somewhere missing! I'm not one to sit around in situations like this so me and Taylor decided to head to the school! I ran as far as I could pushing Taylor in the buggy! (against her will she wanted to walk but that would take WAY to long!!) I'm not in very good shape so running wasn't the best idea! !
I only had one thing on my mind at this time MUST FIND MY BABY, my deepest fear was that a certain person responsible for our families prior series of unfortunate events was also responsible for this!
Half way to the school my hubby called me on the cell, the search party had been called off & he had been found safe and sound in the reading room @ school READING!!! THANK GOD!!
My heart finally slowed down and I began to catch my breath!
Q is part of a one to one reading program at school, as it turns out the grown ups in charge of the reading had picked him up after recess to go read...neglecting to inform his poor teacher! I can only imagine how she must have felt as she placed that phone call to Qs dad! "Hi Q's Dad,this is Q's teacher, turns out we have accidentally misplaced your child, he did not return to class after recess and we are not entirely sure where he may have gone!" I certainly would not want to make that call! She really is a great teacher and I am so thankful Q has had her! We owe her some serious morning coffees to make up for all the DRAMA we have caused! She was extremely relieved to know he was in fact safe @ reading and Q has promised never
Well the saying goes...When it rains it pours and WE have been flooding around here lately but
THE SUN WILL COME OUT TOMORROW!! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!
Its early in the year, guess we may as well get all the crap out of the way right off the start so we can relax and enjoy the rest of the year! I think we have definitely gone through a years worth of crap so the rest of the year should be packed full of happiness! That something to be optimistic about! Tomorrows only a day away!

The snow in the front yard is rapidly vanishing and that leaves me feeling super optimistic about the beautiful weather that is finally here!! Winter is WAY too long if you ask me! It could snow Dec 1 and all melt January 2 and that would be a perfect winter!
The cold months always leave me feeling low! I think its the lack of sunshine!
I have walked more this past week then I did in the last 5 months combined and I feel awesome! I'm sure my car being on his death bed has a lot to do with my increased exercise its been a good thing as the exercise is long over due!
Here's to Sun Shinning & SNOW MELTING!! Bring on the Flip Flops!!

Gwen has sang lead vocals for the group NO DOUBT since the late 80's, In 2003 she branched outside of music and introduced her own clothing label called L.A.M.B, In 2004 she spread her wings even more and soared off as a Solo Artist! Her first album was titled Love.Angel.Music.Baby. = L.A.M.B
My friend had been talking about the upcoming tour for months! (Since they posted the tour date, but long before tickets went on sale!) Her excitement made me wish I could find a way to go with them! Ive never really had any girlfriends that I can go do stuff with never, mind road tripping and concerts! I settled down into family mode @ 17 so concerts and road trips weren't at the top of my to do list. At first I didn't think there was any way I could go, the show is in the middle of the week and its during our busiest time of year for work SUMMER, Who will watch the kids?? Well has luck would have it my in laws are moving to town the end of MARCH! Perfect! They will watch the kids! Now I just have to convince my Hubby to let me go 4 hours away for 3 days without the kids and HIM! I'm cute & often irresistible so I figured if worse came to worse Id just pull out my charm!
Sometimes if you wish for something hard enough it can come true!! =) HE said YES!
WE have our tickets!(really great seats from what I understand!!) Our hotel reservations have been made, Now we just have to PATIENTLY wait for it to be June!!
Wish me luck I'm not always the most patient person!! Just ask my hubby! I am already torturing him with GWEN, GWEN, & more GWEN, He may bury me in the back yard with my Gwen Cd before June even gets here!!=)

A Poem That Gives You Goosebumps(they weren't lying!)...
A drunk man in an Oldsmobile They said had run the light That caused the six-car pileup On 109 that night. When broken bodies lay about "And blood was everywhere," "The sirens screamed out eulogies," For death was in the air. "A mother, trapped inside her car," Was heard above the noise; Her plaintive plea near split the air: "Oh, God, please spare my boys!" She fought to loose her pinned hands; "She struggled to get free," But mangled metal held her fast In grim captivity. Her frightened eyes then focused "On where the back seat once had been," But all she saw was broken glass and Two children's seats crushed in. Her twins were nowhere to be seen; "She did not hear them cry, " "And then she prayed they'd been thrown free, " "Oh, God, don't let them die! " Then firemen came and cut her loose, " "But when they searched the back, " "They found therein no little boys, " But the seat belts were intact. They thought the woman had gone mad "And was traveling alone, " "But when they turned to question her, " They discovered she was gone. Policemen saw her running wild And screaming above the noise "In beseeching supplication, " Please help me find my boys! They're four years old and wear blue shirts; "Their jeans are blue to match."" "One cop spoke up, ""They're in my car, " And they don't have a scratch. They said their daddy put them there "And gave them each a cone, " Then told them both to wait for Mom To come and take them home. "I've searched the area high and low, " But I can't find their dad. "He must have fled the scene, " "I guess, and that is very bad." "The mother hugged the twins and said, " "While wiping at a tear, " "He could not flee the scene, you see, " "For he's been dead a year." "The cop just looked confused and asked, " "Now, how can that be true? " "The boys said, ""Mommy, Daddy came " "And left a kiss for you."" " He told us not to worry "And that you would be all right, " And then he put us in this car with "The pretty, flashing light. " "We wanted him to stay with us, " "Because we miss him so, " "But Mommy, he just hugged us tight " And said he had to go. He said someday we'd understand "And told us not to fuss, " "And he said to tell you, Mommy, " "He's watching over us." The mother knew without a doubt "That what they spoke was true, " "For she recalled their dad's last words, " " I will watch over you." The fire men's notes could not explain "The twisted, mangled car, " And how the three of them escaped Without a single scar. "But on the cop's report was scribed, " "In print so very fine, " An angel walked the beat tonight on Highway 109."
