Taking the plunge & Happy Birthday Skippy!

It did not take too much convincing from my friend, Stayce, for me to finally take the plunge and get a digital diecut machine. I have been tossing the idea around for many months, and she highly recommended a Silhouette by Quickutz. I have not received it yet, but I am already getting so excited. The thought of being able to add "handcut" words for my pages without a exacto knife and lots of time is so exciting! It is scheduled to arrive this Wednesday! I'll be sure to post a review as soon as I get rolling with it. Now, just to find a place for it in my scrap room!

Today has been a pretty mellow day...working on a research paper for class, ironing clothes, and celebrating my kitty, Skippy's birthday!

He is 14 years old this month. I am embarrassed to say that I do not know his exact birthday. I got him right out of college at a time when details like that were not so important. I've celebrated his birthday in April every year since. I guess you can say it is a month long celebration! He has been with me through so many things: boyfriends, interstate moves, break-ups, losing jobs, getting jobs, my pregnancy, Ryan's birth, the adoption of my other kitty (Miss Kitty), the passing away of Miss Kitty (very hard for him) just to name a few. Losing his buddy, Miss Kitty, was very hard on him. He was so lost after she was gone. I've often tossed around the idea of getting another cat, but I never followed through. No one could take Miss Kitty's place. So, Skippy is my one and only. He has such a personality on him. Crabby, yet lovable! They say pets take after their what does that say about me??? So, Happy Birthday, Skippy! Here's hoping for many more years!
