I think I finally have everything off DaVinci that I can get and that I absolutly need. Sure I'll think of something else as soon as I stick him in the mail (FedEx). He's flying out tomorrow and hopefully will be back a week later.
Good Morning girls!
We traveled easily...the roads were really dry. It was when we hit the towns in Kansas that it was a mess. My mom got probably close to 6 inches of blizzard snow, so crusty on top and drifted. Someone tried to scoop her, but really just made a mess, so Todd and I spent an hour scooping her out, and trying to get the ice off the walks. It was good to see her. She is getting old, and that is always scary (especially when I'm moving 14 hours away)
Went to Todd's mom's yesterday. We had braced ourselves for a "storm" with his family, and it actually went very ok. Everyone was pretty nice and his sister only tried to start a couple of fights, and the rest of us, just let it go. The ride home was just as easy as the ride out. Braeden slept a lot in the car.
I'm now in my panic mode. We counted..with today (Friday) we only have 4 days to get ready for movers...and still no place to move into. I did get confirmation that WM will store our things for 30 days and then move from the storage unit into our house without any more cost to us, but if it goes over 30 days, we have to pay for that....so I feel a touch better, but not really. Very worried about Taylor's dog (doberman puppy of 6 months old) that we have to take...he is just a "bull in a china hutch" and it means I probably have to drive my car, instead of ship it. I really hate to drive long distances....14 hours will be rough.
I probably won't be on much, as I'm really busy. We are hoping to get a much lower payment, and have decided if we can do that we will keep the internet. Still get rid of phones and tv.
Merry Christmas late and Happy New Year early! I love you all! TTYL!
Sounds like everyone had a wonderful Christmas We were quiet, but had a nice time. As far as a favorite, since I only got one gift..that would be it Melia got me a couple of tiny candles and a necklace. Braeden loves his Captain America Sheild and Melia loves her boots. Todd got socks
Well I'm off have a great day!

Good Friday morning, ladies! Cannot believe how fast the week went!
Mandy, 4 days, that is crazy!! Good luck! Hope you can keep your internet!
Gonna make homemade pizza tonight. Have our big family Christmas tomorrow. randy is getting a tough time from his coach because he will miss practice tomorrow, but practice starts at noon, it would be 3 before he got to grandma's, and "Christmas" starts at 9am. He would miss the whole thing but dinner. I mean, the coach could move practice to 8 if he's so worried about it. It makes me crazy that they have practice right in the middle of the day anyways. dumb.
Mandy - would love to try to get together quickly before you leave - when I get back.
love catching up with y'all and so gladd y'all got some scrapping in. Went shopping yesterday - don't think bought anything for myself - go figure....did find a pair of jeans for Georgie that I think will work - Mom is going to hem them - elastic waist - from the misses petit section...fingers crossed, this kiddo really wants to wear jeans....
dinner last night with good friends
coming down with a cold - took nyquil last night and am still in a fog - no fever, but I feel a bit chillish....head congested...mom is picking up some meds while she is out
need to finish the DS newsletter and get that to the printer - going to be a couch potato today and hopefully kick this cold.
oh - went to Trader Joes yesterday and they no longer carry my fiberful bar - 1 pt, loaded with fiber - my go to snack - I am soooo sad
but I did get the salted caramel chai latte mix - WW = "I don't want to know"
I hope those jeans will work for her.
Sorry you aren't feeling well, I'm afraid something is going to go through here soon, my MIL is sick and so is one of my BIL's, we were just with them on Christmas day and will be again tomorrow. Not looking forward to that.
Pam...would love to get together...maybe just for coffee or something. I'm working hard to get as much done today, before we head south for 4 days, so when I get back it's just surface cleaning and spending time with friends. Not sure I'll get it all accomplished, but as much as I can. We have to move somethings with us, so we are taking those this weekend. Our guns, all liquids that are open, living house plants, propane tank, fire extinguishers etc.
