The brother had a red hat on with an N... Does that mean they're Husker fans? I don't know why they would be, unless the brother went to school there. They grew up down the road from me and Becky went to school in Raleigh/Durham...
Why are the weekends so short??? I think we need to start a petition....3 day weekends, 4 day work weeks!
Did the Race for the cure in 28 degree weather! Brrr! But, once we got walking it wasn't bad. It took us a pathetic 1 hour to get through 5K. There was soooo many people. Came home to get ready for the Grandparents to be here to celebrate T's bday. I had forgotten why I plan my meals around wine...my MIL drove me CRAZY!!! She spilled coffee on the stove, counter and on some woodwork. And, didn't clean it up! Guess I need to buy her a sippy cup for my house!!! And, then some crumbs that were in front of her....wiped them off onto the floor!!!
Then I learned the "no" word....The room mom wanted me to make the one game that I had showed her for the Halloween party. Now here's the deal...every game I sent her they are using. And, she assigns me the hardest one. LOL I told her if someone would make it...I would run it!!!! So, they tabled that one and gave me my other idea for a game. LOL
Then, XC parent wanted me to make 18 sets of Good Luck at State in Green and Black letters. And, do the names of each kid. Another parent also stepped forward so I am now just back to doing the scrapbook. Thank goodness!!! I had said I was feeling the XC crunch.
Oh, and I am doing preschool conferences next week! LOL I am NUTS!!!!
Hope all is well here. Did you win big $$ at the casino Jann? Wouldn't that be fun!!!
Happy Belated Birthday on here, Joy. Sorry I didn't make it here to chat yesterday. Sorry about your brothers counts being high.
Travel safe Gigi!
Hi Suzy! Hi Megan!!
Sorry that you couldn't sleep, Verna.
Glad you had a good trip surprising your Aunt, Val. And, how fun for the girls on the horse riding. I will keep your community in my prayers. We had something similiar in a town 30 minutes from me last weekend. He never made it to school either. I've never heard anything more on that. He was a teenager.
Good Afternoon Girlies!! I just got done eating some lunch and sat down to watch my soap and check in here and my electricity went off. No internet, no tv, no nothing. I had this screen up so I figured I would go ahead and write my post and just not send it until I have electric again. As long as I don't forget...lol. All the neighbors are outside and nobody has electric. I had to get out my portable oxygen. That machine doesn't run without electricity.
Boy do I have myself in a mess here. I don't know what got into me this morning but I started sorting through all this craft cr@p I have bought. All I can say is OMG!!! All I am trying to do is get like stuff with like. All the punches together, the stamps, etc... I'm not even putting the stuff away, just trying to sort it into boxes so I can see what I have, and I am soooo overwhelmed. Between the stuff all over my tables in the craproom, the stuff I bought earlier this year and along the way until now, and the stuff I just bought, I could honestly stock a good sized craft room. That isn't even including all that I already have.
The only thing I am waiting on now is the mats and blades I ordered for my Cameo, and the I-Rock is with that stuff, and then I am done. Well, except I am going to order more Copics. I just haven't sat down and figured out what colors I want yet. I have got to stop though, until I use some of this stuff up. I have a garage full that I haven't unpacked yet too. This is crazy because I can't even sit down out there and make anything (yet).
I am trying to tell myself that this is maybe a good thing. It needed done otherwise I would have just been adding to the chaos out there with this new stuff. I just don't think it needed done TODAY!!...lol. Plus I am pulling a lot off my tables so that will help too when I go to clean out there. It's just a pain because I have a little bit here and a little bit there and I find more every time I walk out there...lol. I am just going to keep working on it and get it in boxes. I am writing on each box what is in it so I can find stuff too. Plus that will make it easier for me to put stuff away eventually I think. I was trying to write down what I have as I was going but that is taking too long. I am always trying to figure out what CTMH stamps I already have when I go to order and things like that. Sad thing is I have 25 sets of CTMH stamps and have never used on of them...lol. I will, I will. Someday...lol. I just hope I live long enough to enjoy all this once I get it organized...lol.
I do need to put a couple of projects together to take to the Scrapbook Expo. I think I am going to do some Halloween cuts that I can put together there, and probably T's hamster pages. I have the hamster cuts done, just need to put them together and put the 2 pages together. There are going to be lots of make & takes at the crop Friday and we each get 2 free $20 kits each day so I think we will be busy. I also need to figure out what I am going to take to an all day crop at Manila's Nov 3rd. I bought the Reflections power pages pack thingy from her and I am thinking about starting an album about my Mom with it. I really like the colors and think it will be perfect.
Electricity just came back on. Yayyyyyy!!!
I am really hoping that once I get this girl in here working on the rest of my house I will be able to get more done out there. I really am hoping she works out. My big goal is to have the bedrooms all set up and DONE by Thanksgiving. That will involve me getting a new bed, getting rid of the futon, setting up the daybed and a lot of furniture moving. Not to mention sorting through all the junk and cleaning everything.
Speak of the devil, she just called me. She is going to come over tomorrow at 2 and stay until whenever we are done. I told her if she stayed until we are done she would be here for days not hours...lol. Hopefully I will have this stuff all sorted and she can help me put it back out in the craft room and clean off those shelves. Then I am going to put her to work dusting and vacuuming the living room and hall and cleaning the bathroom. That will give me a pretty good idea how detail oriented she is. If she does a good job I will have her start dusting and vacuuming my bedroom too. She is still coming on Thursday so I will have her do the kitchen floor then and vacuum the Girls' room..lol. And then we can start on the spare bedroom just sorting and cleaning it out. Sounds like a plan to me. I am so excited to finally have some help!!
OK, I need to get my franny back at this if I am going to get it done. Plus I need to clean before the cleaner...lol. Not really. I just need to do a pick up clean up so she can actually do the cleaning. I probably won't be around much tonight so I can get this all done. You all have a great MONDAY!!
Hey BTW they had an article in the Omaha World Herald that was pretty interesting about Coach Bo. I have a digital subscription to the paper and actually enjoy reading it more than the AZ paper daily! My daughter is still in Omaha so I can keep up with things going on too. I just really hope they get it figured out here in the next two weeks! BTW did you like the alternate jerseys last week? I liked ours but I didnt like WI.
