What is RSVP?

"RSVP may refer to:
"Répondez s'il vous plaît", a
French phrase that translates to "please respond" and word for word means "respond if you please"[1]. It is with this meaning that invitation cards and similar documents are often marked with "R.S.V.P." It is standard practice to reply to an RSVP request whether confirming attendance or declining." I need to send this to MANY people, some of whom claim to be "very good friends of mine". Why do so many people fail to RSVP?

These things are evil:
Facebook (or computer in general)
Guitar Hero

They all keep me from having quality stitching time. I'm not going to add scrapbooking to that list....I just can't call that evil. If i spent half the time stitching that I spend on this computer, I'd have so many finished projects. I spend a lot of time thinking about stitching or staring at my stitching bag. Maybe I am bored with my projects. I was on a nice roll with Scarlet until I got nauseous in the "sea of green". Maybe I need a new project to motivate me. Hmmmm, I'll have to take that under serious consideration.

If I have never mentioned it before, I am a HUGE U2 fan. I purchased their new CD No Line on the Horizon on March 3rd, the day it was released. I love it!!! Every song is good but my favorites so far are: Moment of Surrender, No Line on the Horizon, I'll Go Crazy..., and Get on Your Boots. I've never seen U2 live. The closest I have come is seeing them on the Imax screen in the movie U2-3D. Absolutely Awesome! I knew a new CD meant a tour and I am so excited that U2 will be in the states beginning in September. They are supposed to perform in Charlottesville VA this fall and I am SO going to be matter what it takes!! All of their performances are going to be in stadiums so I am praying that means plenty of tickets. They have always sold out here in the arenas and I've never been fortunate enough to get tickets. But I am VERY psyched that I may actually have the opportunity for a dream come true!!! See ya soon Bono!

My work environment has become so juvenile. You would not believe the dynamics of the building I work in. I had a very rough week last week worrying about it all and letting it get to me. Thanks to good advice from my hubby and an article I read in the newspaper the other day, I have developed a new "me" for the workplace. #1 - If it can't be fixed in 5 minutes and with the materials you have readily available to you....don't go there. #2 - If you are not part of the problem or part of the solution....walk away! To help me improve my thought process/mental state, I am creating a "happy" book. It's just a blank journal and I am filling the pages with articles, clippings, quotations, all kinds of things that remind me to be the kind of person I am meant to be and not the kind of person others want me to be.

Melissa at Musingsfroma3bedroomranch has created a new blog for creating a family history sampler. My first thought was......more power to you. But I was thinking about her plans as I was falling asleep last night then it hit me today.....I want to design one too. What am I thinking? Clearly I do not have time for anything else. I am a scrapbooker (after a stitcher). I am preserving my family history through scrapbooking. BUT, this sampler idea is intriguing.
I will be pursuing this idea.

Happy 8 month b-day to my beautiful, darling, sweet, lovable, adorable grand daughter Abby!

Alrightie, time to get off of this computer and try that thing called stitching....but first I have a couple of blogs to catch up on. ;-) P/S: I love my hubby. He's a great guy!

Hey! I'm responding to your comment. I didn't see the fireball in the sky, but we heard the big BOOM. It shook the house. WAVY is saying it was a piece of the russian soyez rocket that was sent to the space station over the weekend.

Pretty dang scary sounding though, huh??!!
