Here are some pictures of my kitchen, finally!  LOL!  I kept forgetting to post them!

Here's what you see on the right hand side as you walk in.  It's pretty boring.

And the left side... I HAD to have Hello Kitty in my kitchen somewhere!  LOL!

I'm a little bit country Smiley  But only when it comes to the main rooms of the house!

I got this guy so I'd be able to ring my family to breakfast...  That hasn't happened yet.

Cookie cutters and Army men.  Because I'm a weirdo like that.

Here are some more I received!

This one has the softest yarn attached.  I keep rubbing it on my cheeks!  LOL!

"When both of my dogs died (two weeks apart) I didn't know what to do, I didn't have anyone to tell my secrets to.  Now that the dog I have no is old and going to die soon I feel even more horrible because I don't trust any of my pets enough to tell them any of my secrets."  And on the back it says, "But I still love them all"
I felt the same way when my dogs died.  Now I have a toddler to tell my secrets to, but she's starting to tell them to Daddy, so I need to find a pet rock or something to talk to!

Amen Sister!

And I got one of those beautiful fabric postcards- I feel so lucky!!  The picture doesn't do it any justice....


Sender, at least you sell it!  I buy stuff, and then plan on selling it, but never do.  And I wonder why I can't buy more stuff!  LOL!

These are my two most favorite items I have decorating my kitchen- will post a pic showing the whole kitchen once I get the place cleaned!  LOL!

Oh, how true it is... 

I love roosters for my kitchen!  Smiley

I received 5 today!  YAY!

"I don't want you to be in my wedding"

I had a courthouse wedding because there were so many people that did the whole "Am I going to be a bridesmaid?" thing, and quite frankly, they just weren't good enough friends and/or relatives.  I wasn't about to have people make me feel guilty just because they wanted to feel important.  Getting married at the court house was quick, cheap, and didn't make me any less married. 

"I love to cook...But I'm terrible at it"

Me too!  Well, I can make a mean lasagna, but that's as far as my skills go!  LOL!

"N applied for the assistant manager position but was never going to get it even though J and R told her she would.  L had sex with F but he never called her again because she was so bad.  D has been accused of rape!  M steals big items but the managers haven't realised yet.  B is pregnant!     I spread gossip at work purely for my personal entertainment when it starts causing arguments."

This one made me giggle so bad!  When my sister was having all sorts of drama at her job, I told her to start spreading the office gossip because it would make her feel better when things got tough!  And it helped!

"There's something so romantic and sexy about a glass of red wine.  Too bad I can't stand the taste!"

Agreed.  My husband and I have this beautiful set of wine glasses, but I think wine, especially red wine, is horrible!  I pour 7-Up and grenadine in a glass and pretend to be fancy!  LOL!

"All of my friends are pregnant.  Even the ones who never wanted any.  I hate it every time someone tells me the big news.  And I cry.  I'll never be a mom.  And it kills me."

Oh gosh, I am so sorry Sad  It used to kill me when my ex-husband would be paying out all this child support money to these women he just had one night stands with, and he NEVER wanted kids.  When I was pregnant, he wanted me to have an abortion because he didn't want any kids, and especially didn't want to have to pay for another one.  Thankfully, I didn't have the abortion, and I have my little one standing next to me now.  But it's difficult for me to have future pregnancies because of some reproductive problems, so when I hear about people being preggers, it kind of hurts me a little.  My current husband and I have been trying for 8 months, and nothing.  It's incredibly sad.  You know, you can still be a mother.  Many hugs to you!

Tattoos- I'm the complete opposite.

Phone- Me too.  The only person I don't get phone anxiety with is my mom, but I talk to her everyday.

Valentine's flowers- Hey, better that they were given to someone you love than just thrown in the trash.

Sewing- Amen.  Patterns are a foreign language to me.  I used my last pattern to clean up spilled juice.

Person I Am- I feel the same way.  I want to be different, but I just am never truly happy with who I am anymore.

Kidnapped Cat- Hah!  That one made me giggle!

Puzzle- I wonder the same thing.  I think that one day all the pieces will just fall into place.

And now for the secrets I got today!!!!!!!!!! 

I'm sorry Sad  Too  bad there's really no such thing as "all men are created equal" huh?  People are so stuck on what's right and what's wrong according to their own beliefs, that we lose focus on what's really important- EQUALITY.  I'm probably not making much sense, but I hope you understand what I'm saying...

A-freakin'-men!!!  All the more reason why I have banished cake from my house!  LOL!

The front:

"I'm terrified of childbirth"

The back:

I think it's normal to be scared.  Hell, I've had a kid, and I'm scared to have the next.  But all of that goes away once you're actually doing it, and when you see your baby, all the pain, fear, and any other negative feelings you may have go away.  Smiley

Yay!  I received 2 more secrets today, and both of them made my day!

The first one (front)

I Don't understand why anyone would want this

Diamonds are SO overvalued!

I AGREE!  My engagement/wedding ring is a $30 Claddaugh, and it's all I need and want.  Diamonds are NOT this girls best friend

The second one:

Then, now, forever.  Best Friends.

I just reconnected with my 2 best friends from high school, and even though we hadn't talked in about 4 years, they were ALWAYS my best friends, and I can't imagine my life without them!  Here's a couple of really bad pics:

Thanks for sharing your secrets with me!  I'm off to email my besties right now!

I received another one today:

Here's the front:

And the back:

I know it's not the same thing, but 5 years ago today, I lost my first baby.  I was only 4 months pregnant, but it was the most horrible feeling to know that my sweet little one was never going to be in my arms.  It's such a weird feeling to have not known my little one, but miss him. 

I'm so sorry about your Dad.  I wish I could say more, but I'm sure you've heard it all before.

I received another one today:

The card reads:  We Love You [daughter".  Please come and see us.  We need to talk.  Mom and Dad.

Dear Mom and Dad,
I still hate you for this.

To the sender- I'm sorry.  I can think of several situations that could have happened, and I'm sure that whatever it was, it was incredibly hurtful.  Thank you for sharing your secret with me.

The insomnia card could have been my secret.  To the sender of that one, I know how you feel.  I feel like I'm burning the candle on both ends most days, and my doctor can't seem to find a medication that really works for me.  The only thing that seemed to work was Ambien, but I had to stop taking that after waking up in the car.  I don't know if I drove anywhere, or if I just slept in the garage, but it scared me.  I hope that you can find something that works for you.   If you ever want to talk to someone who fully understands, PM me.  Smiley

The suicide one...  Please don't do it.  Life is full of up's and down's, but there is always someone who loves you with all their heart, and more people yet to be met that will love you the same.  You are more than welcome to PM me if you ever need a friend to talk to, or if you just need to vent. 

And now for the secret I received today:

I was married to someone like that.  We're divorced now.

50  Simple quilled hearts card in Valentine's Day by bigfatroses on: February 10, 2008 10:07:48 AM
I made this card for my neighbor, and she knows that I am a beginner at quilling, so hopefully she'll look past it's imperfections!  LOL!

Sorry for the bad picture, and for not showing the inside of it.  I wrote a personal message on the inside before I remembered to take a pic!   Roll Eyes
