A few years ago when I was living in Florida--I worked as a waitress at a Friendly's Restaurant on the beach---for the first 3 months I worked there the head waitress on my shift, could not get my name correct--she insisted on calling me "Debbie"--I finally gave up on trying to correct her-- and then it got to be fun to be 'somebody" else for 5 hours each day--I really was Debbie!!!! But then one day I went in and she all of sudden started calling me "Diane" which is my real name (Unless I have gotten into trouble again and then you spell my name Trouble with a big "T" in front of it!!!!!)--well--I was sooo sad to have to say good-bye to Debbie--it was almost like losing a part of me that was "special"!!!!
SOOO what does that have to do with today's post??????
Well--you are going to help me rename "ME" for the next year????? Yep---for some reason at the first of this year I told my family and friends to call me "Di" this year and that is how and why I sign my posts--Di!!!!! But I have discovered there are several "Di's" out there in blogland--in fact one just won a magazine on a post--one that I do read and comment on--but I do not know if I am the "Di" that won or not as that is all she said in the post was "Di" won?????
And it's been a year now--2010 needs it's own "new" name--right??????
So give me some ideas for a new name to go on my post signings--we can keep the "Di" part or change it ---what is your thoughts?????????? (Please be kind--I already know that I am Crazy---but only a little right????)
I did get a finish done yesterday---
got the two little newborn baby hats done--
One is for the first "Christmas boy baby" born at Christmas--
And the pink one is for the first "Christmas girl baby" born!!!!
Hope the Hospital likes them!!!!
Yesterday I said I was going shopping and I did go with a girl-friend -- we went to Micheal's big Sunday evening sale--you got an extra 15% off your total sale between the hours of 4pm and 10pm--Plus all there Christmas was on sale--NOW I thought it said at 70% off--well--I can't read!!!! It said UP TO 70% OFF--Plus they had one coupon for 50% off any one item and I needed rotary blades--soooo off we went!!!
They had a big crowd--but I managed to get around--the first thing I really want is a new tree for next year--they did not have but two trees and neither one was any thing I wanted!!! Looked at the blades--they wanted $9.00 for just one blade???? So I did spend some time wandering around the store and looking--my big purchase in the Christmas dept was 3 spools of 3 colors of narrow ribbon (3 colors on each spool for $1.50 a spool--and I found them in other colors to use during the year on my crafts--and a pretty gold glitter bird for 60% off!!! I did find 2 new calendars for $1 each for next year and a package of very tiny star and circle buttons and a package of bead trim for purses or whatever. Then I went back to the Quilting section and looked at the rotary blades again--I happened to find a package down at the bottom of the shelf of 2 blades for $5.99--yes and at 50% off not bad and then the 15%off--YES--JACKPOT!!!! WAS time to check out--I laid the package of blades on the counter and told the clerk I wanted to use the 50% off coupon on that and the then the 15 %off one--She informed me--nicely--that I could only use ONE of the coupons--company policy--( you know what I wanted to say about that??????)-- but I am always "nice"--so I said that is ok-- I will just keep the blades and coupon and get back in line after I pay for the rest of this and use it then---So to make a long story short--I got the rest of my stuff at the 15% off--got in another line and got my blades at 50% off and came home a HAPPY CAMPER!!!!
OK now have some fun coming up with my "new" name--and have some fun getting all the last minute things done for Christmas--
