Crazy Week!

This past week has been extremely busy at Casa Gibson so I am very behind on blogging about this week's General Hospital.  This week on GH the story has been leading up to Sonny's trial and we will soon find out if Dante will testify against his father.  Dante is torn between doing the job he was sent there to do and protecting Sonny.  He has had numerous visitors in the hospital and they all have come with an agenda.  Carly, Morgan, Jason and Robin all want Dante to lie to save Sonny.  Jax, Agent Raynor and Mac want Dante to tell the truth and provide the court with all the information he has to put Sonny away for good. 

Don't forget Michael is feeling very guilty that Sonny is about to go down for killing Claudia.  Is Michael going to keep quiet or attempt to confess again to killing his step mother?  This story line isn't just taking its toll on Sonny's family but also Robin and Patricks relationship!  I hope they can work it out because I love them together and do not want to see Lisa getting her claws into Patrick.

What is your opinion on Dante testifying against Sonny?  Should Michael tell the court that he killed Claudia in self defense to keep Sonny out of jail?  I would love to hear what you have to say about this!

So Excited!

I was recently invited to join the General Hospital Moms group on the Mom Central website.  Since I have always been a GH fan I was excited to be able to chat with other moms who enjoy the show as well.  I am so excited to be chosen as an official General Hospital Ambassador for the next 4 weeks.  There is so much going on in Port Charles right now that this is a great time to be involved in this program.  Will Dante and Sonny form the bond that Sonny desperately wants?  Will Dante forgive Olivia for not telling him who his father is?  Who is going to be the father of Elizabeth's baby?  I can't wait to see how these stories will play out in the next several weeks!

If you are a GH fan you should check out the exciting GH sweepstakes that is currently being run on the Mom Central website.  One lucky person will be selected to receive a trip to Los Angeles to visit the set of GH and have a walk-on role!  How sweet is that?  You have until February 28th to enter here.

I hope you will check back every week for updates and leave me a comment if you want to join in on the conversation!

Quick Banner

Valentines Day is fast approaching and as I pulled out the few decorations I had I realized that I wanted more but haven't seen any that I just had to have in the stores (I can't just run to Target or Wal-Mart these days).  So I pulled out some heart shaped doilies I purchased last year, my Slice, red ink pad, white cardstock and a sheet of old paper from a paper stack I bought many years ago and got to work.  In less than 30 minutes I had a cute, simple banner to hang in the window.

At first I wasn't going to add white cardstock behind the doilies but it needed some stability and I like the finished look better with it on there.  So I carefully applied adhesive to the doilie (I managed to rip it in a couple places) and then added it to the paper.  If I had some spray adhesive I probably would have use that instead of adhesive.  Then I trimed away the excess cardstock and inked up the edges.   L-O-V-E was cut using the Wedding Design Card and the circles came from the Basic Shapes and Alpha card.   

I don't have alot of holiday decorations so I am glad I have the supplies to make simple things like this.

Almost There!

James has been gone for over 6 months now and we are finally on the homestretch.  I am so excited that I am not sure how I am going to get through the next week.  There is plenty of things to be taken care of and I could start packing for the little weekend getaway we have planned but those are just little things and I certainly welcome the distraction but I find the most difficult time of day to be at night when I climb into bed.  I lay awake for a very long time because I have a million thoughts running through my brain and it is only going to get worse every night until JG is finally home. 

This deployment has been the hardest one yet for many reasons.  First, I have two adorable but crazy toddlers to contend with on my own.  Second, we live in Germany now and while I can get around I sometimes feel limited in things I do or places to go.  I am certainly not as comfortable traveling around Germany as I was Seattle.  Finally, since I am now a stay at home mommy I find my interaction with other adults to be limited and sometimes I want to talk about something besides potty training, crayons and reasons why one shouldn't hit their sister. 

I am thankful that this separation is just about over and our little family will be reunited once again.  I am looking forward to the transition period and getting my girls reacquainted with their daddy.
