Good afternoon,

Cloudy and gloomy today!

Tante glad you got a good report from your test!!!

Michelle glad your headache is gone! Next Monday is a holiday so Bob will be home Friday thru then!
He has a headcold at the moment so hoping I don't get it, he didn't feel that great all last weekend.

Hi Mandi, when at M's yesterday noticed they had all their rubber and clear stamps on sale - buy one, get one free plus they had a whole bunch of brand new Christmas stamps.

Hi Kim, glad you got a new cord for your computer. They are expensive and so are battery replacements for laptops, ugh!!!!!!

Glad I did early voting, and as far as who will win will keep my comments to myself in order not to offend anyone who thinks differently on which direction are Country is going.

It is dark already!
Do.not.like.this.time.changing, makes you feel like you have no evening anymore.

Slow day, did a load of wash, put some stuff away, bought a few more Christmas gifts. This being gone for one week next month makes you have to manage time better. Went to Kohls as had $30 worth of Kohls bucks, $10 gift card along with 15% off card...

Michelle your dinner sounds good. I am having the boys over Friday night for dinner and have no idea what to make, the older one is so picky...

Still bright here, but then our time is 4:40. Meat loaf and french fries and green beans here. Of course that is rushed before Karate. I'll be sitting in the Dojo when the speculations and exit polls start...I feel like I'm running! LOL

I've been working on the Dec Daily but not sure I like it very much. Too many small cuts and making things work. Very cute but file folders are not universal in size so it makes it hard.

I'll write tonight at the Dojo if I can keep my mind focused.

Glad your headache went away, Michelle. Did you and Bob enjoy another day off?

DH is planning on taking some days off the middle of the month and going to NYC/NJ with our church for disaster relief. I guess I can't get upset at that, but it sure is hard. I'm feeling a bit selfish. Just don't see much of him since he took this new job. It's as I expected and 8:00 or after most nights. Haven't sat down to family dinner during the week in at least a month. Very frustrating. Sorry, I don't mean to whine. I am very grateful for the blessings God has given us/me...just miss spending time together.

Mandi, check out your school district's web site to see the policy on excused absences. Some districts only excuse for illness when there's a dr.'s excuse. Of course, you don't bring your child to the dr. every time she's ill, but if your child has been ill for several days in a row or on many days here and there, they expect you to bring the child to the dr. at some point. There are often exemptions to the policy. If a chid is successful academically and the parent says the child was ill, but they gave them otc medicine, that child will probably still be promoted. There is sometimes a limit of days for a death in the family, but if it means a trip across the country and the parents decide to stay for a few extra days, that can probably be appealed. I hope this helps.

Interesting info on the Ebosser, looks like it's back in stock on HSN, 3.6 stars out of 5. A lot of people like it but...the issue I had is a typical problem...everyone of the bad reviews was for the exact same thing I had a problem with, backing out the dies, getting jammed, not embossing the entire page.

Early release at school, not sure why but the kids are happy.

Hello,

Cold this morning, 35, may make it up to 50 today. By Sunday, 70 - unreal with this up and down trend.

Michelle this has not been a good week for you as headaches go...enjoy your baby sitting job. How is mil doing since her sister left?

Mandi, oh I remember the school conferences in the lower grades, but it is great your going. So many parents don't bother to go.

Stopped at Target today after getting hair done, it was a zoo, people seem to be getting an early start to the holidays I guess.

Tante enjoy your scrapping.

Hi Kim, Cris, Mini.

Good morning! Beautiful, sunny but warm day here.

I've been busy stirring up trouble over on facebook. Just felt the need, not sure if I will have many friends after this.

Michelle, I hope you feel better. Do you think all the headaches are due to stress? Are you babysitting MIL? How are her treatments going?

Mini, how much snow did you get?

Hi, Cris! How ya doing?

Holly, are you back yet?

Hi, Jane, hi mandi!

Not much going on here. Same old stuff, LOL.

Hope everyone is having a good day!

Thank you, Michelle! That means so much to me. I tossed and turned all night about it and prayed over the words. I felt the need to post that after several things were said to me yesterday publicly and in a private message. And just things that have been posted all long that let go. I feel better after saying it.

That's good the new meds are helping your mil and great that you got her to eat!! That is probably a big hurdle. I wish there was something I could to help. Still in my prayers.

the conference went REALLY WELL. i was so relieved and being the emotional person I am I cried a bit too. just a HUGE breath of fresh air sorta speak then from last yr. Her reading level is soaring teacher thinks she will exceed the reading level number they are looking for at the end of the yr her math skills arent too great but not a huge concern. the teacher had a system of 20 points she was looking for for this far and she got an 18 she needs more pratice on writing and the teacher is willing to help her and me figure it out.

I;m very proud of her!!!

We visited Bennett today. He's got an upper respiratory infection, but it seems his ear tubes are doing well. The gunk at his eyes is disgusting, though. My poor baby.

Good morning! Thank you for all the good wishes! I'm still floating in the clouds. But I need to get writing again, so here I sit at my desk ready to go. Just wanted to say good morning.

Mandi, I'm so glad Brianna is doing better this year! I think as it gets harder she will be even more engaged! I think some children thrive when it gets harder. I know DS has done that, although he has slipped the last couple of weeks. I hope he can get back on track.

Michelle, good luck to Mel at the doctor's today. Hope it's some good updates and have fun shopping.

Tante, I hope Bennett feels better. Poor baby. It's so hard when they don't feel well and they don't understand.

Yes, Jane, Mini, that was my shout you heard. I've been holding that puppy in for many, many years just waiting for that moment. And if you think that one was loud just wait until I get the email with the contract offer!

Hope you all have a good day!

Hi,

Just running around the house like crazy this morning, cleaning, putting stuff away, etc., with younger son and dil coming over for dinner tonight. Not sure why I feel the need to clean, after all this is his family home so I don't need to impress him (lol).

Cold start this morning, 35, but almost 50 now and plenty of sun.

Michelle so sorry your having so many headaches. Enjoy your lunch and shopping with Mel. Hope the dr.'s visit is a good one!

Tante sorry Bennett has an infection. When having my hair done yesterday they were all talking about how there is a nasty stomach bug going around, great it is already bad with everyone having colds right now.

Mandi forgot to say how wonderful that Brianna is doing good at school!!!! Way to go Brianna.....

Kim get busy now finishing your novel and remember we all want to read it.......

Well, back to finishing the cleaning......

Did you see the other videos, Cris? I think there was 7 total (with the supply list one)

Mine is on hold. I got 15 Christmas cards made and the file folder part way done. Don't think I'll get much more. I can't wait to see how it turns out! What paper are you using.

Got some writing done. Sat at the computer from 8:55 until 2:00. Then from 3:30 until it was time to make dinner at 6:00. The rewrites are so hard because now I have to figure out ways to ditch the cliches, find creative ways to say the same things over and over...pounding heart, thunder of her heartbeat...you get it. My head is pounding right now but it's a good pounding and I'm still in disbelief.

Busy day here. Writing, soccer pictures, soccer game, more writing, church and the dinner with some friends we haven't seen awhile.

I;m not sure if they knew we were home or not but when they realized someone was here they starting swearing and ran off. i dont think the police found them cause about 30 minutes later i heard them outside walking around again screaming and yelling. I;m guessing one if not all lives here cause our place is key access.

Good evening,

Not sure what I did today (lol), it was one of those laid back Saturdays. Bob has a horrible sinus infection so he is snorting and sneezing all over, ugh!!!

Michelle sorry your sick. Get lots of rest. Like I said, around here there is a nasty stomach bug making the rounds making people super sick and it is highly contagious!!!

Mandi that is scary with some kids trying to break in - hope the police can catch them, no doubt they will mess up and be caught before too long.

Cris, have fun working on the album. How is Bill feeling these days?

Michelle, sorry you're feeling bad. You have to rest; you've been doing so much.

Kim. nose to the grindstone, lady.

Yesterday was a lucky day for us. John and his friend did very well hunting. I went to play video poker and won $100. While I was there, they had a drawing and I won $25. That covered my fee for the scrappy class last night. In the mail we got a check for $200 for John's small part of a family land lease. The check engine light on the car went off by itself. Wow, not too many days like that.

We made 2 double page layouts at the class. She gave us a paper pack, embellishments, and 4 extra die cut pages. We used some of the paper, but still had lots of extras. My friend had lots of extras she was selling, too. I got a punch for $5, 10 sheets of pp for $1, and a set of mirrored embellishments for $1. (Still less than my $25 winnings from the drawing.)

Hi,

Windy, rain expected anytime now with dropping temps. through out afternoon (63 at moment).

Michelle that bug must have really gotten hold of you. Glad your up and feeling a little better...continue taking it easy.

Mandi how nice that some of the eateries give free meals to veterans, you all certainly deserve it and much more too!

So far today haven't gone anywhere, just not in the mood to get out among everyone shopping, etc. Goodness knows there is plenty of things to do around the house.

the only thing that caught my eye that i;m gonna go to M;s for is the cuttlebug. Brianna would get my old one and i would get the new one. on sale for 40% off and theres an additional 30% off so would be a killer deal. I was a bit dissapointed too cause last yr was some awesome deals BUT at the same time i;m glad too cause my checkbook is happier HAHA


Cris hope you have a great day off work tomorrow!!

Black Friday - I'm staying home!

We may be going to Natchez, Mississippi, the Monday after Thanksgiving. An old elegant hotel has winter rates of $69 a night. There are 2 casinos, lots of good food, beautiful plantation homes, and the hotel has a courtyard, two nice restaurants and a bar with an oldies but goodies jukebox. I hope our friends can make up their minds soon!

Good morning!! I've come out of my office for a tiny bit. LOL I've had some really good writing days.

Michelle, I'm so glad you are feeling better. I agree, take it easy, you are doing way too much. I don't do Black Friday either. I know it's a tradition in a lot of families, but when I see the crowds fighting and mobbing each other I'm just glad to be home.

Tante, how did you sleep last night? Your after Thanksgiving trip sounds like fun! It's nice to have something to look forward to after a big event or holiday.

Jane, did it cool off after the rain? We got the rain Sunday night and it was only in the 60s yesterday and last night was downright cold, 39.

Mandi, anymore trouble with the teens?

Mini, yeah on more card making. So cool you can make cards and sell them.

DH is in NYC, arrived yesterday. They didn't see a whole lot but what they did he said was just awful. They will be helping to clean up one street, I forget where he said it was.

Hope you guys all have a great day! Talk to you later.

morning ladies.
we dont really do black friday either just a crazy mad dash of cranky people I;d much rather avoid.

Tante sounds like a wonderful trip after thanksgiving.

Michelle glad you are still gonna rest up

Kim hows the writing going? glad your dh made it safely in nyc

no more trouble with teens I havent seen them actually since that night. we will see how the weekend goes.

Cold start this morning, 30, brrr - it is nice and sunny now and 43.

Mandi that deal on the cuttlebug sounds great, hope you can get one for that price.

Kim glad you have had some good writing days and also that dh made it safely to NY.

Michelle glad your feeling much better today, don't overdo. I don't do Black Friday either, think I did one time and that was enough for me - people yanking things right out of others hands...some Christmas spirit, right? More stores this year seem like they are opening earlier on Thanksgiving evening. Walmart specials seem to start at 8pm for some stuff, 10 pm for other stuff and they claim if you are in line you will get the product that is advertised at that time. Now, what do they consider how many in line to be (lol).

Cris enjoy your day off.

Tante hope your friends decide to go to Mississippi, sounds so neat.

hi girls!

bill and i hung out today and watched a couple of episodes of a series that we are watching. then we went to a nearby town (its about 25 miles away..lol nothing in between here and there) we drove around for a bit and then went to eat at chilis. i had chicken fajitas which were ok.. ive had much better. and i also had 2 loaded tater skins. they were just ok. overall it was a mediocre dinner but it was great to spend some time with bill!

i never go out shopping on black friday.. but i will get up early if there is something special that i want and try to buy it online. lol thats about as crazy as it gets around here. hehehe

I slept well last night, about 8 hours. It's 1:37 AM now, though, so I don't know about tonight.

Kim, I think it's wonderful of your husband to help out in the Hurricane Sandy aftermath.

We scrapped at the library today. With the 10 pages of pp I bought Saturday, I made 7 layouts. I used some sketches to give me the ideas.

Good afternoon,

Beautiful sunny day and warmer, 50 right now! Just got back from getting hair done and a little more shopping.

Michelle that is a wonderful attitude on the anniversary of the death of your friend. No doubt she is smiling down at you today

Better take Benji out and see what needs to be done before Bob gets home.

Michelle, Ann is certainly with you today.

I finally broke down and bought some clothes. I bought two pairs of jeans that were the same size as the last two pairs I bought. They must have been made differently or maybe just because they were a different brand, they fit so much better. I also bought two blouses. The jeans and one of the blouses were on sale.

good morning .....bob is home again today .....in MI it is the "hunters holiday" .....deer season opened yesterday so MANY companies including GM give their employees the day off for a long weekend of hunting .....of course bob doesnt hunt so he just gets another day off


mel has her doc appt this morning .....Im sure that will be fine .....right now we're just trying to get her off the steroids so we can see what happens and decide whats next

so twice lately they have had free shipping here (once daily deal and yesterday fb & twitter) and I am happy to report I showed great restraint and didnt order .......of course both times I filled my cart ready to buy but I never hit the button


kim hows the writing coming?

Good morning! Sorry, I've been MIA lately. I read every morning but just get busy and don't get to post. I've been a tad stressed this week with Martin gone, it was his b-day yesterday, DS's is Sunday. My folks can't afford to go out for his b-day but he want's to go out for his dinner. Karate, soccer, small group, laundry... And I'm sooooo in the writing mode.

Writing is going really good. I was excited to see the editor started following my twitter feed, hope that is a good sign she is interested enough to follow my career... I am missing scrapping, once again I have a started project and can't finish it. My Dec. Daily probably won't happen this year. Cris, did you find out if Kathy has a tutorial for this?

Deer hunting is popular in a lot of states. I know one of the couples from our small group is moving to PA and they were saying that lots of business closed up there for this weekend of deer season.

You would think it would be a big thing here in gun country, and hunters and bow hunters... but nothing closes for hunting. Of course in my opinion, we have challenged deer here... they are nothing like their big, brawny cousins up north and east... our deer are more like slightly overgrown dogs with small mitten racks for antlers.

Good for retrain, Michelle! I too showed restraint, was very proud of myself and then I realized it was payday yesterday and I order over 60.00 worth of Stampin Up stuff. They are the best card stock ever. No question, nice thick, great quality for making cards and so many pretty colors.

Hope all goes well with Mel's appt today and you can all enjoy Bob being home.

Everyone, hope all is well, have a good day. Anyone heard from Holly? Isn't she home yet or is she still up north?

Hi,

Sunny again, 55!

Bob is home today, he had a dr's appointment at 11 for routine, blood work, etc., then he was to go back at 1:15 for a bone xray on his shoulder followed by a heart sonogram thing, dr. didn't like his last ekg so wanted another test, apparently there was a spike that showed up so we shall see what he thinks of this test.

Michelle hope all goes well with Mel's appointment.

Kim glad you have been writing and hope you have a nice b-day dinner out.

I didn't sleep last night again. I slept from about 7:30 to noon, though. Then I had my nails done, went to the bank, and went grocery shopping. I ate a frozen dinner and now have to do the packing of my page kits for tomorrow. I hope I can sleep tonight. It's party time tomorrow!
