Good afternoon,

Sun is out!

Things are quiet around which is good - need to go out and cut the front yard, maybe...(lol).

Michelle glad you scrapped! Once again, have ideas in my head, but haven't applied them on paper yet - I am hopeless.

Will not watch the debates since it is my opinion that anything Romney says will be twisted by the media who we all know who they want in. Sorry and that is all I will say.

Kim I will vote again today - can't wait to read your whole manuscript.....

Tante your food choices for today don't sound that good - clear liquid had to do that before my endoscopy, I think I ate some jello though as I didn't have to have clear.

Don't worry, Holly by the time it's all said and done on the 11th you will be begging me to stop reminding you! LOL

Not watching the debates, just can't bring myself to do it.

Michelle, I'm sure it felt good to get there and scrap!!! Glad you got to spend some time in your room.

Michelle glad your day is freed up and you got to scrap YAY.

Kim you are kicking butt on the writing way to go

Jane get those thoughts down on paper so we can see!!

Holly yes I am glad she is gone. the first 2 days was fine with her then after that was awful. I wanted to kick her out of my house.

sooooooooo

I tried to buy a new yoga ball the other day at WM,,,,,,none in my size (5 foot 3 - 5 foot 11)

Jaime goes to WM last night and finds one,,,,,

a Gold's Gym ball,,,same EXACT ball I bought a year and a half ago,,,,,,,,,their balls are color coded, and my size ball color is red.

bear with me, there's a reason I'm giving you this info LOL

soooooooo, I blow the ball up last night,,,,,,I swear it's HALF the size,,,,,,and I know this because my knees are too high and the ball easily fits through door ways without a gentle shove (plenty of room),,,,,,,,my larger ball got stuck and you had to give it a tiny shove,,,,

like what the heck???

double check,,,,,same ball,,,SAYS the same CM circumference,,,,,,like what the heck???

thinking I am losing my mind, I blow up the OLD ball,,,,,,,,(turns out the ball wasn't broken, it was the pump that was broken),,,,,,,the ball comes with a pump, and a new pump alone was the same price as a pump and ball,,,,,,,so I figured I'd buy another ball too,,,,,,,,might as well have the ball,,,,,,

EXCEPT IT'S NOT THE SAME SIZE! the old ball is TWICE the size,,,,,,sitting next to eachother, there's A HUGE DIFFERENCE!



shaking head. go figure.

I am now using the old ball with the new pump.

WOW Holly that crazy about the ball size being different.

I LOVED my yoga ball when i was preggo with the girls eased so much pressure i had with both. Now i dont use it.

Holly you've been on a cruise before right (anyone else as well)? I need to cut some images from lifes a beach cart for a friend. secret santa swap i;m in . anyway I;ve never been on a cruise and i cant go out and ask her since its a secret so any ideas on what to cut? I have laid out so far is sand dollars, a few leaves, anchor, coral, seahorse, and shells. I;m gonna do the cruise ship but what else??

Dinner sounds good Michelle! I had Bob Evans Mac and Cheese along with applesauce.

Did manage to go ahead and mow the yard. Wasn't bad as it was cool with a breeze so didn't have to take a break.

Need to finish putting out some fall/Halloween items - gosh this year is just flying by.

Mandi, if she's a gambler, maybe something about that, too.

I didn't watch the debate. I think we'll hear more than I ever wanted to hear about it in the next few days.

This diet, plus the laxatives, is less than pleasant.

Good afternoon,

Sunny after a heavy fog this morning.

Have a boy scout volunteer meeting committee meeting, hope it doesn't drag along too much. If a certain person attends we will never get out as they question every single statement someone makes.

Holly did you get your cards finished yet?

Michelle is it next week that Adam comes home for a few days?

Bob will be home sometime this afternoon for a long weekend - Monday is a holiday so no work. I better get the honey do list updated, seems like it is added to, but nothing crossed out

Hi Kim, Mandi, Mini, Tante, Cris.

Kim, I voted!

My tummy is still upst with all the laxatives I had to take. It doesn't help that I was so hungry after the test that I had a waffle, eggs, bacon, and toast at Huddle House. Tomorrow will be a better day!

Good morning! All these fall things sound so nice. We have them but it's just not the same when it's 89/90 degrees.

Thanks for voting, Tante! When do you get the results of your testing?

Morning, Michelle! Glad you have gotten into scrapping again. Doesn't it feel good? I know you're looking forward to having Adam home. Pumpkin picking sounds fun. We'll do that in a week or two, I hope.

Jane, I've heard that Pigeon Ford displays are always pretty, that would be a fun outing.

Mandi, how is Brooke's rash?

Hi, Holly! Hi, Mini!

Hi, Cris! Thank you so much for all the promotion you've done for my chapter! Makes me smile every time!

Off for a workout, load laundry (non of it is getting fold! ) but it's getting washed. My new goal is to get to the 3/4 mark on my MS, only about 6,000 words away!

Talk to you later!

Thanks for voting!!!

Michelle I know you are excited to have Adam home and pumpkin picking sounds awesome. Glad you are back into scrapping again!!

Brookes rash is 100% gone and she is done with her meds. she just has a diaper rash now. nothing major though. have her diaper rash meds dr perscribed the last time she had a rash so it should be healed within a day or 2.

wow, sounds like everyone is going to have a fantastic day!

we're grocery shopping here,,,,,then I have to start on another DT project (anything but a card--joy.) I have no paper from the people I'm supposed to have it from, but I'm not waiting another day to make my project,,,,,,,they'll either take it as it is, or not use it,,,,,,whatever. That DT is a PITA, and I'm leaving at the end of the contracted period.

I also want to go to HL today,,,,,,never got there yesterday,,,,,,,and the post office, same thing LOL. Hopefully my back will cooperate.

I just went out to check the mail,,,,,,,someone painted the post RED.

I asked Jaime why he painted it red,,,,,,,,

Hi girls,

Another lovely day!

Holly that is odd painting all mailbox posts red. Do you have to have a certain mailbox also to put on the post? I have seen black ones, green, some are metal, some plastic....

Our HOA is the same way, some things are o.k., others are not, depends on who knows who....

Tante hope your feeling better today!

Mandi glad Brooke is now feeling good and bet you will be glad when she is potty trained and won't have to go through the diaper rash.

Michelle glad Adam will be home soon and you get to have family time eating at the diner and go see a movie!

They are having a Parade of Homes in our area today, so Bob and I went to look at two homes, one was on the water, beautiful, only $1 million it is fun to look though!

Kim, I voted!

I gave my niece most of a china set I had collected. I grew up eating off of those plates. In turn, she's going to clean my house for free twice. I still have some left and she's happy, too.

Now that I have extra room in my glass cabinet that was in my mom's store, I'm going to put some scrap supplies in there. I gave away some books and will give some more away soon, so there'll be some rearranging because of that. Maybe guests will actually be able to use my guest room. Or maybe I'll just buy more scrappy stuff!

I feel better today. I'm not sure when I'll get the results.

Tomorrow I have my last Stampin' Up party for the year. It's at my sis-in-law's house. I'm looking forward to it. She always has great munchies!

Hi,

What a difference a day makes - today, gloomy, no sun, drizzle and only 55, will get down to the low 40's overnight! What happened all of a sudden? Wonder if we will go from a/c to heat without any time for open windows....

Hi Cris, like the new avi!!!!!

Michelle sorry you have a heavy heart today.

Tante how nice of you to give some dishes to your niece. I had a bunch of dish sets from my Mom and gave some sets to younger son when he was in the process of getting his divorce and starting over since his x took all the kitchen things.

Bob is over at ds#1 place helping with a bathroom remodel, wonder if any sparks are flying, they both blame each other for being so stubborn in doing things, actually they both are stubborn

Mandi sorry you had a creepy person for a customer. Good thing your next one was wonderful! How is Brianna doing in school?

Hi, y'all! I had a good day, because I had a good night.

I went to my SU party. I bought a punch and some stuff for my score board.

We pulled topics for Christmas. I pulled seasons. I just have to pick one and do a double layout kit for each of the 8 ladies attending. When we leave at the end of the party we'll have 8 double page layouts made. We'll also eat well and leave with 7 new recipes!

My sis-in-law made shrimp fettucine, garlic bread, cake with custard sauce, and two kinds of cookies. So good!

Good morning. Crazy Saturday. DS's soccer games started back up. DS scored a goal!!!! A thought out-take-control-of-the-b all goal! He looked good.

Thank you voting Tante!!! It's killing me not to know what votes everyone has! But it's been fun and I am almost done with the first draft. Should be done this week. Then polish it up.

MIchelle, glad you liked the card! I enjoyed making it. Yeah and movies, dinner and families!

Tante, that SU party sounds fun and the food founds delish!!!

Holly that is crazy about the mailbox post! Red? And they painted it for you. Wow.

Cris can't wait to see your mini. What kind are you making? Love your hair cut and your new Avi.

Today is grocery shopping and writing. Kids are off tomorrow and I've already told them all day is writing.

Mandi, did you get snow flurries last night?

Good afternoon,

Brrr, feels like winter to me - 47. May have to turn the heat on as tomorrow is still suppose to be cold.

Michelle glad you had a good day yesterday.

Tomorrow being a holiday for some, Bob will be home. Schools are open though.

Just noticed that our Costco opens Nov. 9th. They are starting to offer memberships now - $55 a year but I noticed they don't take credit cards like Visa and Master. They do American Express and their own - that stinks as I will not open another account for a credit card, guess it will be check or cash, hmmmmm...I would image they will have some sort of free guest pass to see what they have and if it will be worth it to pay the membership fee based on our buying habits.

That sounds so much easier. We do the boiling of the cabbage head, taking it apart, putting the rice, ground beef, etc., and then wrapping them all up.....

Enjoy your meal!

Hi, y'all!

Happy Thanksgiving, Mini! I may have to try those lazy cabbage rolls. Tell me more about it. Do you cook the rice and bacon before adding them to the cabbage?

Happy Thanksgiving, Mini! Your dinner sounds delish! OMGoodness, I can't believe we are talking about Thanksgiving already!

Kids are home today, parent teacher conferences. I have DS's at 10:30. Hopefully it will be a positive one. He has been bringing home some really good grades so far and his progress report was all As and 1 B. I don't think his teacher last year was very...how do I say this, she was nice but maybe she wasn't that engaged...she is not teaching this year...I don't know...we'll see how this goes today.

Michelle, it's wonderful you have Adam home! Fixing something fun for dinner?

I really wanted to go to the Pumpkin Patch this weekend but it's suppose to be 89 degrees Saturday and Sunday!!! Hard to find that fun fall spirit when it's that bloomin' hot.

Thanks for continuing to vote, everyone, I know it's kinda dragging out but Thursday is the last day. I'm almost to 400 likes, I don't know if the equates to votes or not but I like seeing that...it's actually 367 so sorta close to 400.

More writing today. Not very productive yesterday so I need to make up for it today.

Jane, what is your weather like today? We are cool right now and high of 74 and then the rest of the week it just gets hotter and hotter. DH is left for NYC this morning. They are having a Leadership Conference. It' nice today but I think it gets pretty cold the rest of the time he is there.

Yipeeeee!!! The conference was the best we've ever had!! Both teachers were VERY complimentary on his manners, his participation in class. His grades are awesome, his reading is right where it needs to be. Math, SS and Sci are excellent, A+ for both SS and SCI and A for Math, reading, language arts. Minor behavior issues but nothing to signal more than 8 year old boy behavior. (Mostly annoying one little girl in particular, mmmmm) I need to celebrate!!!!!

Glad everyone had a good day and thanks. DS is pretty happy with his performance at school.

I have been writing, rewriting and polishing all day. My head is killing me and my neck hurts. I may try going to bed when DD goes tonight. Doggie will just have to cross his legs until morning. LOL

Not sure where Holly went. She was here the other day.

I've been holding at 368 likes most of the day. I don't know if that translates into votes or not. It would be nice if it did. Thank you for all your kind words and your encouragement, Cris. I'm afraid everyone will get busy and forget, but then again, I've said it was in God's hand His will be done. I've searched trying to see where others stand, I'm sure I haven't seen all 700 entries but I would say pretty close. I found one with 5,400 likes! I didn't enjoy the story, but that's just me it's a Historical and I'm not a big fan of those. She has been a twitter user for some time I guess and has over 700 followers so I'm sure that helps.

Then I found one with a little over 1,000 likes. The rest are much lower than mine. There has to be some between my 368 and the one with a 1.000 but I haven't found them yet.

I'm off to bed. I'll talk to you all in the morning.

Good morning! Yes a good nights sleep and I feel right as rain.

Thank you for voting, Michelle!! I've made my peace with what ever the out come is. If I don't actually win the contest but still have high votes that can attract the editors attention. They said last year they picked up 6 new authors who didn't final in the contest but caught their eye. I will be thrilled with that as well. So thank you for voting and supporting me.

I think I'm the ONLY Texan who didn't watch the football game last night! My goodness that's all anyone is talking about!! I was protesting as they took off my one night of TV that enjoy to show the game...

Hope you get some scrap time today. I'm going to fold clothes and get that done. It's a bit overwhelming! I have 3 baskets to fold.

Hi,

Still waiting for the sun to come out! It is 50 at the moment.

It is hard when the weather changes like this and you have to start wearing warmer clothes, can't decide what to wear with what (lol). Did go to JCP's today and bought a pair of shoes (Clarks) black with a heel, looks good with slacks and they feel comfy.

Kim I vote for you every day and hope you win! I can't wait to read more........

Michelle sorry it is time for Adam to head back, but with the holidays coming up no doubt he will be home more....

Bob went back on site today and will be gone until Thursday afternoon. He did get a few things accomplished for me, not as much as I would have liked, but will take what he did without complaints (lol).

I need to wash all the sheets, etc., on the bed today, another one of those necessary jobs, plus need to finish dusting (ugh).

Off to take Benji out and find something to eat for lunch.

Hi Cris, Mandi, Mini, Tante and Holly.

Howdy. Jane, thanks for all the voting! I appreciate the support and I'm now at 420!!!

For the record I do know the difference between piece and peace, you just wouldn't know it from my post this morning.

Michelle, sounds like you were busy this today. Hope you're having a good night.

Our weather is a roller coaster right now. We are on the up swing into the high 80s. I hate it.

One day of karate down, one soccer practice and one more karate to go.

Hope everyone has a wonderful night and sleeps good.

I'm so happy for your great parent-teacher conference, Kim!

Well, my test the other day showed "irregularities" and narrowing in the tube connecting one of my kidneys to the bladder. It may be the cause or the effect of my frequent bladder infections. When he does the cystoscope on Nov. 5 he'll do another picture and will have more info for me.
