I Am a Tea Party Rally Sparkie Today

Thursday, April 15, 2010

On Thursday, April 15, FourC is hosting a Tax Day Rally - rain or shine……

We would like it to be a positive and energetic event for all so request that signage be appropriate and without derogatory or inflammatory messages. We have a list of signage suggestions below the flyer. We may be visited by “party crashers” and ask that if you see anyone who is suspect, has a sign that is inappropriate or is attempting to make a disturbance that you find one of us with a FourC T-Shirt. We will graciously ask them to leave.

FourC T-Shirts will be for sale and we will be taking orders. T-Shirts are $15 for all sizes. Look for Shelle at the sign in table.

We look forward to having you join the festivities.

Yep! I did it!!!

I actually made a quilt AND finished it, knowing it was just for ME! I am not sending it out and I am not gifting it away. What's more, I am making a table topper to go with it, and I am going to keep THAT one, too!!!

WOO HOO!

They are my birthday prezzies to myself.

I love sunflowers. I mean, who doesn't??

Remember when I mentioned I was taking a Two for One class? Well, this is the first one to get finished. All I have left to do on the second one is the borders, sandwiching it, quilting it, and then taking photos so I can show off!

WAIT till you see it!

I am scuttling back to the quilt room so I can get it ready for showing.

Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Birthday TO me!!

A Must Read and Watch!!

Friday, April 09, 2010

This is a tough pill to swallow. The fella asking the question is right. Most of us don’t know the Articles expressed within the Constitution. I am as guilty as the next guy. This fella put a Republican Congressman to the test with a question that I couldn’t answer and neither could he! I’m personally humiliated. If I had known the answer I would have been enraged. I believe we had better get our act together if we’re gonna take back this country and make it great again. Freedom is too precious a gift for us to squander. I will now divert my attention from all the normal reading subjects and commit myself to memorize the Constitution of the United States in the next 6 months! I swear to God!

    I think all officials should know the constitution frontwards and backwards plus have read and understand completely all these bills they are passing. They are suppose to be smart and very intelligent people yet don't know more than most of us "commoners."

    Thank you for sharing that! I'm sending the link out to all my friends. You are so right! No matter what your political affiliation, we need to be vigilant that we elect people who understand what we are electing for!

HA! I May Have Gotten Even With Darcey!

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

Hey Sportsfans,

My "home" team is Port Angeles and Surrounding Areas. Darcey is one of our leaders. You may have heard me speak of her before.

There I was, all fat, lazy and happy (well, okay, not so happy) when SHE got into my world. It is all HER fault that I became a walker.

I believe she is psychic, and that she looked into my brain and saw that I was totally content with being a couch potato. She also saw that I am a highly competitive person.

So what does she do?? She comes up with these CHALLENGES.

First, it was a walking one mile each day of September, 2009. AND I had to track my distance and time.

Not to be undone, Darcey, Shirley and I were silently competing with one another, and at the end of the month I did well over 30 miles. THAT turned me into a walker.

Second, she comes up with this Strength Training Thing. OMG. I was in absolute agony!! We did the Strength Training Thing for ten days. I was one huge aching mess by the sixth day. But I did complete the ten days, and now I do strength training.

Third: She decides we have to account for our Sodium intake. I mean.............NOW I have to decide what food to eat that won't clog up my arteries OR harden them! No room for Oreos. I haven't had an Oreo since that challenge, and the withdrawals have not been fun.

Mind you, in between all these challenges, she has had others, too. None of them jumped out at me as being life changing as much as these three.

So now she and Karen (our other Fearless Leader) have asked for Challenge ideas.

I sent an idea off today.

It is for us to do one 5K marathon this Spring or Summer.

See what I mean about life changing challenges?? It's all HER fault, I tell you!

So I get this reply from Karen, saying she thinks that would be fun, and she will get a list of 5K marathons from the Y. She even suggested I become the Organizer of this, which, once I learn what that means, I will probably do it.

Then I get Darcey's response!

HA! I GOT HER RIGHT WHERE SHE LIVES!!!!

She came up with all these excuses as to why she can't do it. Her excuses sound as pathetic as mine were with HER challenges.

She "stops and takes photos, has lunch", etc. etc. etc. All reasons to duck out of this one.

Shall I give in to her whining?? Shall I give in to her excuse makings?? Shall I give in to her on ANY challenge??

You all know the answer to those questions!

It is with true GLEE that I will push her right into this one!

Get ready for a Life Style Change, Dear Darcey! You forced me into change, and now I throw down the gauntlet.

We WILL do a 5K marathon, no matter HOW many excuses or how much time it takes us. And we WILL get our T Shirts that prove we participated! I WILL post our photos on my page for everyone to see!!

WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS!! and that includes YOU, Darcey!!!

    Geesh, Maybe we should have a casual walk and see who can take the best pictures challenge. Hmmm That sounds fun. I just had to LMAO when I read this....Karen

DARCEYOH 4/7/2010 11:49AM

    Ok Miss Thing! I see the gauntlet layin' there! And... I've picked it up.

I had/have some ideas on how to organize a 5k. I'll talk to a few people and get back to you with the answers.

AND as a heads up, if we don't come up with one to organize Olympic Medical center w/ the help of the North Olympic Discovery Marathon group has a 5k/10k each year. Go to: http://www.nodm.com/omc-5k-10k.php<
BR>
And usually every year there is a 1 mile/5k walk for the cure held in August.

EITHER WAY, I've got some ideas I just need to bounce it off some others.

uggg... look what you started! emoticon

    Watch out. I got challenged to walk a 5K. I did one last April and another one last week. Now I'm thinking about waling a 10K. emoticon

    Sandy, you're funny. I doubt I'll be doing a 5k either, although I commend your idea. I really don't enjoy competitiveness unless I'm working with a team to compete against other teams. And like Darcey, I prefer to walk at my own pace, which is almost never brisk, take pictures, look for wild mushrooms, stop and stair and a tree or the water.

Love the blog though.
