What is this thread about?

Well, things get quiet here on the weekends, so a thread was started to just hang out and do a virtual crop. Since then it's grown into more. Several people are now "regular" including myself. We chat about anything and everything. (Warning: Sometimes we stray into areas that may be considered "adult," although we always try to be tasteful about it.) We share our latest layouts, pictures, whatever interests us. We have fun and encourage each other.

It's now all week long, too. Since it is a new thread each week, it's easier for anyone to join. Even though we start over each week, it's STILL pages and pages long. Don't be intimidated, we are happy to have anyone drop by and say hello. Some of us read all the replies and keep up, but it is not required. Warning: It can get addictive!

Circle Journal Information:
I suggest 8x8 format because it's easy to do and will fit into a standard mailer.

It's everyone's choice to do either a single or a two page spread and to add whatever you want. Vivian, personally, would like to see a current photo, likes and dislikes on whatever, and something unusual about each person. Like for Liz/Moxie to show her extensive Stickles collection.

To keep things simple, do the same layout for everyone. You could change papers and such depending on your stash but keeping to the same design will make things much easier/faster and no one gets a better page from you than the next person. If someone is short on funds/time to make copies, digitals are acceptable. Even digital copies can be doctored up (read that as blinged) to make a hybrid layout.

PM those you want page(s) from and you'll be getting PMs from others in the Circle. Just let it be known you're interesting in doing this in the thread. This isn't just for VCWer, so if you want to add other people, go ahead. It's your album.


Please leave updates about yourself HERE . This is for those who can't be online as much as they would like to be.

Most of us also really love bling and encourage bling usage!


Come visit OUR GALLERY to meet some of the irregular regulars!

There are several of us who are dealing with weight/health issues, too, so we've started a HEALTHY CHALLENGE as a way to have support and accountability for whatever your goals may be.

So come on! Don't be bashful! And don't be afraid of the fact that this thread MOVES. Just jump in wherever we are, and we'll be glad to get you caught up on what's happening. We never know what we're going to talk about or how silly we will get.

well, here's to today being a better day than the last two...although it is rainy and icky today, and our cable internet appears to be down for the second time this week, but since this is the first time in over a year I can remember, I guess I can't complain too much.

so I am on my work computer, cause it has a dial up card

Both. I get to run around like a chicken while she's in school, go pick her up from school and either wait until my mother drives to pick her up or meet halfway or bring Abby to Mom's office. Dropping Abby off at my mother's house at 3 when her husband is home is too inconvenient for John.

Boo hoo...let him go then and be out of your hair. You know if you ask him to change his plans to help you, it will end up messing up your day.
And if he hangs around the house, then put him to work...bet he leaves then!

Works on my boys.

was looking forward to a weekend with nothing to do, but hubby was on the phone last night with our friends. They are coming down to stay at their camper and get it opened up and ready to go. And he told them we would stop down and he would bring his chain saw and start cutting up some of the wood he drove down a couple months ago.
THAT will turn into 3/4 of a day, I'm sure. Probably the whole weekend, because once he's down there, he'll get the fever to work on the pontoon boat.

I was talking to Mom before the crop last night, and she asked if 3 was ok. I asked John and he said no, so I went back in my room, finished talking to mom and then did the rest of my usual pre-crop last minute stuff. In the middle of the crop he texted my phone to ask what the plan was. What do you mean, what the plan was? You said that 3 was inconvenient for you, I told my mother that, you're now well out of doing anything.

He does have a valid excuse for not being at work this morning (beyond the one I'll post the story of later). His dad's estate is finally done with probate, so he's going to the lawyer's this morning to finish up some paperwork and arrangements. Then he'll come back and be in my way while he packs his gear (which he didn't do last night) for the game, reducing any amount of cleaning time for the rest of the house than I may need.

In an attempt to redeem himself, he has volunteered to drop Abby at school...

Can you clean the area where he will be while he's gone this morning, and then work in your room or the kitchen while he is packing?

I plan on getting as much of the rest of the house finished while he's out. While he's home I will work on my room or finish putting page kits together. I'll run my errands when I pick Abby up from school and then figure out what to do about getting her to my mother later.

I really want to try to clean this weekend, and then scrap. I wanted to finish cleaning the carpet in the living room. Of coarse I now need to reclean the hallway. Dog was home for 3 1/2 hours with 3 kids yesterday. He pulled stuff out of the kitchen trash and tore it up all over the living room, WHILE my daughter was cooking dinner! He got into a trash bag up in my bedroom and tore it up allll over the bedroom. And apparently he peed in the hall, not once, but twice. Although the kids say they had him outside 3 times. Yeah, right.

Or at least there were two big wetspots in the hallway that no one can attribute to anything else!

One thing about chatting on my work computer is that I can easily switch back and forth and I have already checked my emails and answered them and done some paperwork.

I have things I need to do today and a couple of patients I need to see. I hate to leave Chief locked up all day, but it doesnt happen often.

I also need to go get dog food today, but luckily Petsmart is right next door to my office.

okay, I need tea, lots of tea...and I need a shower and break into my kids face washes I guess. Either the stress of this week or something else is wreaking havoc with my face! All broken out.

Hopefully all of my equipment orders came in and I can get everything done I need to. Hopefully.
