My Crazy Weekend

What happens at Crops Plus stays at Crops Plus.

The best scrap booking weekend I have ever had.  I scrapped, laughed, blew diet coke out of my nose, met new friends, criticized (yes me) and had a freaking time of my life. 

If you scrapbook I highly recommend this group for your scrapbooking get away. 
The size of the tables were HUGE
Lots of electrical outlets, and if you brought what they told you to bring, you were set for life. 
The music was the perfect level, not to interfer if you were talking or listening to your own music with headphones of course. 
The giveaways were great! HUGE!  Astronomical!!! Well worth the effort.
They had games, and stuff, but did not interfer on your scrapbooking. 
They had the best classes with great instructors.  Stamp classes, photography classes, and album classes. The classes were worth the amount spent.

The food provided by the hotel was good.  I am usually a complainer when it comes to food.  I WASN"T even hungry and I would go eat, just to see how it tasted.  POTATO SALAD and that awesome beef for the taco's was great.  Everyone had stuff to share too.  Chocolate and diet dr pepper, coffee drinks etc.

The hotel location was kind of out of the way, but it was worth it. 

This crop I have talked about for with bad review because of the problems I had when I had my surgery, and could not attend. 

I am so glad that I went back and tried out the new owners.

May the force be wtih me!

Washing Machine Blues

So, I am sitting here...
Waiting.

I have a 2 hour window where the repair man will show up, sprinkle fairy dust on my washer and the it will no longer sound like the space shuttle taking off. 

1 hour has already passed.

We went out and bought the washer a few days ago after going to several different stores shopping for the best deal.  Five stores later we scored.   The washing machine did not have all of those fancy whistles.  We just want to have the option to throw clothes in, pick the temp of the water, load size, and length of wash.  I do not want to be able to adjust the half way cycle of the spins temperature in accentuate the flow of the water leaving the bin. 

Not my cup of tea.

The deal also included free delivery and pick up of old machine. 
We scored.

3 days later I am sitting waiting for the repair people to show up and fix the machine. 

They came
They saw
and
They kicked ass

Wanna know what the problem was???

The shipping rod was never removed from the previous installers.  The machine was also not leveled to perfection.
