Hoppy Easter and Other Miscellaneous Ramblings

"cough cough" AHEM! Yes, it's me! And only a week & three days after the previous post. Not bad, for me anyway.  So, on with the show!
First & foremost, before I do anything, I must thank Chrissy at "I Shoulda Been A Stripper".  A few weeks ago, she gave me this wonderful award.   
It's the "Feels Like Home" Award.
There is only one requirement to this award & that is simply to pass it on.
Pick five people who make you feel welcome; who make this strange virtual world of ours feel more comfortable, habitable - and then pass them this award as a token of your gratitude, a thank-you gift.  So, I shall pass it along to:
It was very difficult to choose out of so many great blogs, but those are my five that are comfy spots to me.
What next?  Shall I dazzle you with my brilliance?  (cough cuckoo cough)  No, I know.  I'll ask a question.  Guess what I got?  I bet you'll never guess.  C'mon, what do ya think?  Any ideas?  Ok, I'll give you a hint.  You may get to see me live.  (& maybe hear me sing) LOL.  Ok, no singing, I promise.  Is that a good enough clue?  Did someone say webcam?  YUP! That's it.  I got a webcam.  And I am thrilled!  Now I can do vlogs & you can see my loveley face & hear me sing (NOT!).  No, I will not sing online.  I wouldn't torture you like that.  I have to figure how to set it up.  I have this week off for Easter break so I should have time to figure it out.  I am looking forward to doing video blogs, but kind of nervous, too.  We also got the webcam to talk to my family out of state on Skype.  We did that at my sister's house on New Year's eve.  We got to talk to my uncle in Minnesota face to face.  It was pretty awesome.  I've been playing around with it a little bit so we'll see how it goes.
Yes, I am on Easter break, thank goodness!  I have off all next week.  It's getting really bad at the school with all the fights.  There have been fights all year, but it seems when it gets warmer, the kids get out of control.  These kids were actually getting in fights on purpose so they could post them to "youtube".  Is that ridiculous or what ?  I wish I could get out of there, but my daughter has one more year left of school, so I am pretty much stuck.  I certainly won't leave with her in that school.  She is doing awesome academically & it really pisses me off that certain groups of kids ruin the school for those that care.  The principal said he is tired of it & just doesn't do anything anymore.  We have to call the police in most of the time.  I just pray that no one gets killed one day. Sorry to bring down the mood. 
Anyway, I want to wish all of you a very Happy Easter!  Don't eat too much candy!  Hopefully, you'll be seeing my smiling face soon!
Donning my Easter Babushka,
Collette   (((HUGS)))

Oh, thank you, Sweet Collette! I lUV prezzies.

I also love that cartoon!

I don't think I'm brave enough to use a webcam.

Have fun and have a great Easter!

Hi Collette!

Ok, first of all I want to say a big CONGRATULATIONS on your award!

You so deserve it, dear lady because you ALWAYS make me feel at home here and you also ALWAYS share a homey feel whenever you stop by and share a comment on my own blog. So, thank you!

And second, OMG, OMG, OMG...you're gonna LOVE your webcam. As you know, I just got a computer with one on it and I'm having the time of life. I can't wait to see your videos!

Wishing you a HAPPY, HAPPY Easter, my friend!

And enjoy your school break!

Wow, thank you SO much for my award and your kind words. It means a lot.

I have an awful webcam because when I try and speak with my parents (who just got one) either I can't hear them or they can't hear me. I need to invest in either a better one or get a computer savvy helper to see where I am going wrong

MomZombie said...

Thank you so much for thinking my blog is like a home. This is especially touching since I spent a fortune redecorating. BTW -- and I've said it before so please forgive -- we ARE planning a meet-up sometime soon. I hope you can make this one. Details forthcoming. Hoppy Easter!

Me-Me King said...

Congratulations on your award!

I see great minds think alike, Happy Easter!

Chrissy said...

Happy Easter, Collette! Enjoy your week off. Looking forward to "seeing" you.

Aunt Becky said...

Hey Sweetie!
Congrats on the award! And congrats to the recipients as well...

It'll be GREAT to see a face/hear a voice to go with your lovely posts here!

Can't wait to see!

Collette said...

@Margaret(NGIP)-Thank you & yes, I had a very nice Easter with too much food as usual...lol!
@Kathryn-Thank you. You will be wishing I never got a webcam. I can be what nightmares are made of...lol!(especially 1st thing in the morning before my coffee!)

Rising Rainbow said...

I'm sure glad that schools weren't that out of control when my kids were still in. Sad to see what things are coming to, that's for sure. Where will it end?

Collette said...

@RisingRainbow-It really is pretty scary nowadays. Just glad my daughter only has one moer year!

Jennifer Juniper said...

Congrats on your award :) My kids are still young...cringe!

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

And another thing I forgot to tell you last time. That chocolate easter bunny cartoon is my all-time favorite!

Jientje said...

Congratulations on the award, Colette! Can't wait to see you and hear your voice. I hope your Easter vacation was wonderful!

VE said...

I can relate to the bunnies...

Ivy said...

Hi Collette. First - LOVE THE NAME! That just may be the name for any future daughter I may have.

I'm stopping over from Reforming Geek. I'm so glad she posted your link!

Kids today seriously scare the hell out of me. I have a three year old son, and I am terrified to send him to school. What is wrong with today's children? They are all bonkers! I want to go back to when I was in school. The worst thing we did was color our hair with cool aid (I just upgraded to real pink hair color) and wear stupid clothes. That was rebelling. I'm only 27. How did it change so fast?

congrats on your award and i look forward to seeing you live and in living color!
