Hi ladies

The organizing bug did hit me. I tackled the closet, I feel good about it. Got rid of 2 tall boxes, thanks to dd for helping. Now I can access my scrapbook tote easily There is one box that I cant do much about it, it belongs to dh.

Going thru papers, got some to file and tons to shred. Do kinkos or a place like that have a shreding machine? I know I should buy one, but I dont purge and shred all the time and the daily stuff I shred in the office. But this is like a box of paper, too much to do at the office. Any ideas?

Hi Shatema, Hi Clara.


Clara - are there any schools for the developmentally challenged adults (sorry - I may be using the wrong term for it these days). There is a school near my old place. They do "trades". For a while they were recycling paper and making their own paper pads for sale. Now I see that the money maker is shredding - by the pound. I am sure that they would be very efficient at it and ensure that every last scrap is gone. Of course even if there is such a school, you'd want to talk to the adult in charge. I am sure that they would be bonded and supervise the process. No worse than some guy at Kinkos or places like that. Just an option. Maybe not this time but could be a possibility.

My niece chose to get a car, so we won't be seeing them for Thanksgiving.





Dawn, do you think it's adolescent selfishness, or is it a more mature "one day vs. several years" kind of thinking?


I know that my niece is now trying to talk my sister into letting her come anyways. So right now I think she is playing both sides.
What do you mean by one day vs several years?



I was thinking of "one day (or a few days) of family" could be sacrificed if it meant you were going to get a car, which could be worth several years of being able to get places without having to rely on others (including getting around to go see the family that you didn't spend the holiday with in the first place).


Knowing my sister, she won't be allowed to leave the state with the car. That was the rule when my nephew was there.

So I was watching checking out some of my favorite blogs yesterday and I saw this video on a really neat ribbon technique and thought you all would like to see it as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgT94EbGQtc&a mp;feature=...

I made one last night and it was so easy, though I didn't use enough ribbon and it was really small. I'm going to use them for Christmas cards.

Good Morning!!
I woke up this morning witha headache and kind of a bad mood. Not sure why. I even went to bed early. I just took some tylenol hoping that will help. Right now it is super quiet in my building but I hear that the movers will be here at 9, I can only imagine my quiet time will be over then.

Desi-I am so glad you like your new job!! I too can't wait to hear about it!!

Hello to everyone else!!

Liz-Thanks for the link. I will check it out tonight. I can't go to youtube here.

Clara-Happy purging and organizing!!

Now I just need to figure out the actual card that the design goes on, figure out the message, throw them together, address them and send them. And if I can figure out what color cardstock I want and print out the message I'm using, I can throw them all together at the various shows I'm at this month if my sales suck.

We usually do those for lunch because they take NO time to cook. Sometimes we do it for dinner, too. Usually it's part of a huge Mexican feast on Cinco de Mayo. We did have them Halloween night so the kids could eat and get to trick-or-treating quicker...Lizzie and Jory LOVE them. Lizzie will announce, "I hafta eat my Mexican food 'cuz I'm Mexican, right Momma?"

Heeeeellllllloooooo ladies!!!!

I know I have been MIA but WOW has life been kicking me in the tail lately....and there is no end in sight. I am looking for a minute to breathe.

Why is it that when you are gone the biggest projects show up at work, all at once? I have been so swamped by catching up at work and go-go-go at home that I havven't had time to jump in here. Things are still really busy at home with all things scouts and school and getting ready for the holiday but work is calming down a bit. Mom is doing better and continues her physical therapy. She has gone into her office for a few hours this week and dad bought her a laptop so she can try to work from home some.

Sorry this is so long. I have missed you all!!!

Well we were suppose to go do our second walk through today for the house. But our new Realtor called and her daughter has a temp of 102 and she doesn't want to get anyone sick in case it's contagious. So re rescheduled for tomorrow morning.

Had a class last night to go to for being home buyers (Brian and I decided to do them since we have never bought a house before), we've learned a lot and only 2 more classes to go.

We found a really nice house it's 4 beds, 1.5 baths, and it's almost 2,000 square feet (way more than I really need) and a lot of yard for the kids to run around in (Way more than we need), it's a foreclosure so it's a really good price and we really like it.

I made a HUGE life decision this morning....I have decided to go back to school! I finished my LPN last December and I have decided to go back for my RN. I am scared to death but know this is something I need and want to do. I will start back in January. I will either have 2 or 3 semesters to do.

Well it's Wednesday, are half way there. Last night I made dinner late so dh and I could eat together at 8:45. It was fun. He was really happy because on the nights he works he just eats whatever. I also worked on my 2 page lo that I was working on this weekend. I stickled it and now it's drying. It is still really quiet in my building. I really like it.

My house is clean at the moment. Doing laundry as well.

Got a knock on my door today and it was the gift we ordered for Brian's grandma from Disney. Long story short, we were suppose to buy it, person forgot to ring it up, we found out when we got home, called and they shipped us 2 (I decided I wanted one), they charged us the "special" price, no sales tax, and no shipping fees. Go Disney.

I use recipes as jumping off points and kind of just use what I have around or take out stuff I know my family doesn't like.


Here's one I want to add, even though you said you were looking for something different but just in case.

just ran upstairs and threw the pork chops in the crock pot. Instead of BBQ sauce, i threw some maui sweet and sour sauce on them. We use this a lot when we grill pork chops so going to try it this way tonight!

Will make some homemade scalloped potatoes, a green veggie and some biscuits and dinner will be served.

Heather I have never made pork chops in the crock pot...I usually rub EVOO and poultry seasonings in to them and throw them on the George Foreman Skillet Grill. I serve with Lizzie's "mashin' tatoes" and Jory's green beans.

Tomorrow night we're having baked cod with rice pilaf, green beans, and asparagus. I went to the store today so I could play all day tomorrow and Friday. Friday's pizza night is going to be different. I got a couple of loaves of French bread and we're going to try making French bread pizza. We'll see how it turns out!

I am home - 33 mins ago. I like taking training - change of scenery and usually a shorter day. But it is difficult to just sit there for 3 days.

I finally pulled out the instructions and programmed my thermostat. It was set a little cooler and at the wrong times for me. I leave by 7:15 in the morning so I will have the temperature go down until about 30 mins before I get home.

Also worked on my scrap room - making a little progress. Holy c**p I have a lot of stuff. Just getting to all of it now. I have a full room for it and no where to put it. YIKES.

I haven't done any volunteering this week - I still have a cold. My shift was supposed to be last night but since I blew my nose non stop yesterday, I thought it best to not show up in a crowd where folks are waiting for a flu vaccine.

I thought you'd like that.

I still have to buy some more storage furniture.

Ooo, furnace kicked in - it comes on early to be at the correct temp. at 4:30 since I arrive at about a quarter to five.

Tonight I am going to an open house for a cute boutique that sells pastries, chutneys, bread, coffee, kitchen serving items (napkins, cheese slicers, etc) and jewelry. Apparently they paint the place and deck the halls for the season. They'll have nibbles and wine so why not.

Afternoon ladies. Sorry I haven't been around much. My back has been hurting for 3 weeks...it's a little better than it was. I can sit without being in severe pain now. Went to the doctor, again, today because now I have a sinus infection.

Ohhh...there's a bunny on our patio!!! It's cute.

Ouch, hope it heals fast. My brother has back pain often, and it can get ugly, sometimes he cant even drive.

Glad to "see" you around. Awwww bunny
