So last night I had an very weird thing happen. I was at the gym running on the treadmill and when I went to put in my ear buds they gave me a not so subtle electric shock. I was very surprised and thought it may have to do with the volume. Silly me put them back in and continued to get shocked....GO FIGURE. Well I stopped using them promptly and continued my run. However, every time I would touch the metal on the treadmill I would shock myself. The hair on my arms and neck was standing on end. Finally a little freaked out I got off the treadmill to touch the rubber mats thinking that would help. It did so I finished my work out and went home. I felt fine, showered, but then when I went to dry my hair and plug in my dryer electricity jumped out of the outlet and zapped my fingers making them completely numb. I was slightly (I mean very) scared and called my mom who very coolly told me I was probably going to be one of those people who spontaneously combust. THANKS MOM.
Anyway, I finally dried my hair but wearing rubber souled shoes... I figured that would ground me right? But for the rest of the night I felt the effects of my electric events. My skin periodically felt like a current was running across it making me feel itchy and I continued to shock people/my poor dog that I encountered. Thankfully it wasn't a rainy night and I didn't get struck by lightning... cause I am guessing that was the next step on my path last night. I was also thankful for my very funny friend Jacky who immediately took the situation seriously (After reading my facebook status) and did some research on "Minor electric shocks" Thanks friend! =)
Here is a link to spontaneous combustion just for you to read up on

How things work in our house

This one's for you Laci-
So I just wanted a glass of wine for dinner. A cork screw down for the count my ever inventive hubby and his hammer finally made it happen. =)

Love this man!

So its been awhile

I kinda failed in the blogging world for the last few weeks of 2009. But here we are in 2010!!! I have begun a new hobby. I have started making baby quilts- or stroller/car seat blankets and bibs. I am also getting ready to open an etsy site and a blog. and Now- to answer the obvious question I am not pregnant! Just needed a new hobby and choose this. Mainly because so many people around me are having babies and this makes good presents and hopefully a little moolah on the side. SaSaBlue is a play on my name. My little pal Fletcher calls me SaSa for Laurisa and Blue cause it is way easier than Ballew. So please check out my sites in the upcomming months for info and baby shower gifts!
Nothing else too exciting is going on....oh yeah, my gma did wreck my car (and hers) in a little driveway miscommunication which involved a firm discussion on her desire for me to pull into the garage and me refusing. And her trying to straighten up her car, forgetting it was in reverse while talking to me, it rolling towards my car and then her hitting the gas instead of the break sealing the deal and creating two wounded vehicles! Fun times. Anyhow...HAPPY NEW YEAR. More to come soon!
