My goal today is to try and get the one lo on my desk done that I started the other day. Schlepping laundry to my neighbors AGAIN!

I am acu on love...

Amy..I definitely see your point in hunting and gathering...my problem is I never know what I am going to feel like working on. At my last crop i made up page kits because I was only able to stay a few hours...and then I didnt feel like working on anything I brought LOL...so i socialized and shopped hahaah! cuz thats what i need...more stuff LOL

I am hosting a fundraising crop on saturday so I think it would be in my best interest to try and prepare some kits..if i have time Its alot of work!!

Eileen -that SUCKS about Best Buy (or maybe they should change their name to NOT SO Best Buy). We ordered on-line through them, but since they are based out of MN and I live right here, I am guessing that is why we got ours right away. But you are right, they are in big financial trouble and having horrible customer service is in no way helping them.

Hi ladies jci,

Eileen, that sucks about Best Buy, haven't bought anything from them since DH's last laptop. We got our new appliances from a local appliance store when we re-did our kitchen last year, it worked out great and they were a better deal than HD/Lowes & Sears, didn't even bother with BB for them. Hope you find something soon.

I'm tired from all the cleaning yesterday but have to go grocery shopping today and maybe some scrapping...see ya later

We went to our local appliance store -- we've always tried to support them. Family business. But the economy in eastern NC is abysmal. So they have very little to choose from. OY.
It's all so frustrating.

Sorry about the whining = you'll hear nothing else until they are installed.

What sort of poltergeist have you got? I've had alot of trouble in my house with them as our house was built on a crossroads... lots of activity. Even had a little boy at one point who used to call out "mummy" in the middle of the night when Bailey wasn't here and run through the house. We ended up getting the house cleansed by someone who knew what they were doing from our church cause I didn't want to risk doing anything to upset them and make them cranky. Spirit free at the moment but they seem to come and go and the light bulbs in my house blow on a regular bases. Good luck!!

Good morning,

Today is cooking (making pumpkin turkey chili, roasted pepper hummus, chicken enchiladas, and whatever else is on my list...) and organizing my scrap room day. If you see me here, kick me OUT!

Eileen-I was going to say "DON'T ORDER FROM BEST BUY!!" but I figured I was bossy enough about the front loading washers, lol. I guess you found out the hard way. We order from this place: www.abt.com. It's local but it's HUGE!! We love just to go there on a Sunday -- it's where all the Chicago news people and athletes outfit their bazillion dollar homes, but their prices are very competitive. They have fun interactive exhibits for kids. I love to play in the display kitchens.

DOO. I'm about 5 or 6 behind on the sketchathon.

Good Morning, getting CU AGAIN!!!

Volunteering at DS's school today in the library......if anyone knows me, it's not a big shock that I picked THE LIBRARY!!! And it also helps that I really like the gal who is the librarian there. She is super cool and really nice. I need to get out of the house more or I may start going crazy. But now I'll have less time for scrapping. Booo, but the plus side is more contact with people which I've been craving lately. A lot of my friends live about 1/2 hr away and I can't always go and see them regularly. So, I am really looking forward to volunteering. I'm going to try to go there a few times a week.

I loved volunteering at the library. The little ones are so sweet there. I also worked the lunch room for years.

Now I'm barely allowed to show my face.

Supposedly my W-D will be here in one week (NOT FROM BestBuy). I'll believe it when I see it -- hopefully when I get home from New Mexico it will be ready to rock & roll.

Hi ladies,

Had a blast today at DS's school. Just organized and helped label some books, no biggie, just tedious stuff that no one has a lot of extra time for. Going back tomorrow afternoon as well. Feels great getting out of the house.

Hope everyone is having a great day!!!

ACU! Great work ladies.

Jersey is fine. NOthing at all happening with her. But I couldn't pick her up so she had to spend the night at the vet.

Murphy has a nasty gastroenteritis. She'll be staying there -- I think it's safer for her since I'll be out of town. No sign of a UTI so I'm going to attempt to get a sample from Casey tomorrow. So if you want a giggle picture me chasing her in the am with a mason jar in my hand!

Eileen, that cracks me up. We used to use a disposable pie tin to catch Lexie's -- wider, flatter, and, with a little spout pinched into the edge, easy to pour into a jar to take to the vet.

So Lisa -- wish I had read your post before this morning. Brendan was rolling on the lawn laughing at me. But I got the specimen and of course it's perfect.

Murphy is still at vet. Still having problems -- geesh I hate that I'm leaving with her feeling ill.

Now Kevin tells me that he's been doing lab work on himself and he's seeing a nephrologist next week. His kidneys aren't functioning properly. He is so not overreactive so it's really tearing up my nerves. He even went and had a u/s today.

Good morning!

Last "free" Friday before heading off to the office on Monday! I'm so excited, I can barely stand it. Very behind on gallery love here (which means like two days, lol!).

Eileen-Thinking of Kevin -- yikes, hopefully it's just a simple kidney infection!

Renae-Yay for scrappy time! My DD (almost 5) actually loves to scrap with me. She has done a couple of pages that I should post. The people at Archivers (a chain of scrapbook stores here -- you'd love it) actually know her name. I let her pick out a couple of pieces of paper whenever I take her there, and she always gives the ladies a very detailed description of what she's going to do with them. It's such a positive thing to get our kids involved in.

LisaIrish-See you tonight! I'm actually planning to get there around 4.

At the *PATCH* By Sasload4

Challenges:

Ugly Paper Challenge. The papers I received were the background paper, and the center flower paper. The flowers I fussy cut from the remainder of the paper, misted them with various Glimmer Mists, and used Pearl Ex on some of them, various glitters were also used. I was sent FOUR embellies and used them all, the GREEN LEAF, an APPLE, a HEART and the BUTTERFLY.

Round Robin - Group 3, Week 3.

Hi ladies,

JCI---Eileen, hope dh is okay....Dr.'s are usually the worst patients. Glad he's getting himself checked out. Hopefully is something minor. The Dr. I used to work for was the WORST patient. He had an ear infection that lasted weeks and refused to get it checked, which of course made it worse. By the time he got a chance to get it check out we were literally yelling at him just so he could hear what we were saying. I don't know if it's a man thing or a Dr thing but it was really frustrating.

Well, off to leave some luvin' and then hopefully scrap a little. I have a small headache so we'll see how long I last. BBL.

Eileen, have a great trip and be safe, hope DH will be okay.

Off to just relax for awhile, will work on getting ACU on the chatter & pages later tonight & tomorrow.

Catching up on love through page 18.

My screenname is from high school. It started as my aol screenname and is also my email. The first part "godschild" is because I am His child and the "94" is from a guy I liked at the time. His hockey number was 94. Now its just mine.

Another crazy week for me...wishing it would slow down. Still super busy with work and planning 2 baby showers for my sister who is due in December. Also planned a trip to Disney World with a very good friend of mine to go see another one of our friends in early December....so super excited about this! It is truly my fave place on Earth and I can't wait to go back...and also to scrap it! LOL

Finishing catching up on layouts today...once I leave love on all the tabs I have open I will be caught up! For the first time this month.

Then spending the rest of the day scrapping. My parents are out of town and it is cold and rainy today so I am staying inside in my sweatshirt and slippers and letting the paper fly. First up...baby shower invites then who knows?

Sara - Have fun with that salt dough project. At least its something crafty right?

Eileen - Have fun in NM. I can't wait to see your pictures/pages from your trip.

Lisa was my muse last night. We had an awesome crop! The store is just fantastic, and it's very laid back there.

Anyway, there are all for the sketch challenge. I'm now two behind:

Sketch 15: Just Be Exactly Who You Are By LesleyC
Sketch 18: Lights By LesleyC
Sketch 19: She Is Clothed With Strength & Dignity By LesleyC
Sketch 20: Little Surfer Girl By LesleyC

I will be back later to leave love. DH is coming home from gymnastics with Nina, who is very out of sorts, and is suddenly afraid of the older kids at the gym. I don’t know where this is coming from, but now I’m really scared for kindergarten! The kids at the gym do nothing but practice their gymnastics. I’m trying to determine if she just wants attention, or if there’s really something going on.

Tena - Did Anitra have her wisdom teeth out? I need to have mine done, but all I ever hear are horror stories. It's getting to the point though where they are bothering me enough that I may be able to brave the procedure. When they weren't bothering me, it was too hard to get motivated to go through that.

D2O:

This one has metal brads for the challenge - thanks to Lesley

Okay, the salt-dough map looks...good. I am a little shocked. But he actually took his time and got it... darn near perfect for a 6th grader. And I love that my scrapbooking supplies come to save the day! Used a bunch of brads to mark cities, and a special star brad for the capital!

Hi ladies,

Thanks Tena, today is a better day because I get to spend it with my gf's tonight. We are celebrating my bff's 40th birthday. She is just 11 days older than I am, but I love reminding her that she is still "older." Hahaha!!! Leaving here in about 1/2 hr to head up there. I need some girl time BAD!!! DS will be with us, but there will be many kids there and they are all old enough now to go play on their own. Can I just say I LOVE age 6. They are independent enough to do stuff on their own, but they still love their parents and we are still needed.

Sara-That sounds like an awesome project! We've made ooblek before. I have to say, was not impressed. :/

Karen-Have a great time with your friends! We are just about the same age -- I turned 40 last November.

Lisa-I say you technically got 3 pages done. A 2-pager counts as 2.

I am sooo tired today. Friday morning, I woke up at 3:30am, and never got back to sleep. Cropped until midnight last night, got home at 12:30, and woke up at 6:30 when I heard Nina playing "tea party" with her dolls. We putzed around after gymnastics, and then at the last minute, revisited the idea of going apple picking because the horrible weather that was predicted for today ended up being gorgeous weather. So I'm hoping for some good sleep tonight. Tomorrow, meeting my dad for breakfast, and don't really have anything else planned. I might see if my massage place has a special tomorrow -- sometimes they do 50 minute massage, facial and a mani. That would be a nice indulgence before heading back to work on Monday.

Lisa yes, these were the last two of the 4, she had one removed in HS, one in college and now the last ones were both in-bedded so that's why the surgery, one was coming in twisted and there was no room in her mouth for any of them, she's doing much better though and glad it's over.

BBL to post and get ACU

Shew, lots of great layout ladies! You ladies doing that 30 day challenge are really doing some great work! No way I would ever undertake that kind of challenge. I'm way too slow!

Lesley - It was kind of a spur of the moment thing. One of my best friends just moved down there to live and so another friend and I decided we needed to go see him so we just booked our trip. And since he works at Disney, we got a killer deal! $38 a night for a value resort! And free park tickets...I am in heaven!

Lisa - I haven't had my wisdom teeth out yet either. They twinge every once in a while but I hate the dentist so I am putting it off as long as I can.

Crossing my fingers for you Karen.

A busy day for me as well. Slept in because I had a headache but then had to work this afternoon and then my sis and bil came over to hang out and play games. It was fun to just hang out with them which almost never happens. It was great! But since I slept in I am so not tired so I am puttering in the scraproom hoping to get tired soon!

Catching up on love again..you ladies have been busy!

Wow, finally ACU again.

Melissa, WTG on getting caught up on the sketch challenges...I so agree with Anna, I couldn't begin to keep up with a challenge like this.

Bev, you were so right about the perfect timing for the fall photos, I have traveled that route 100's of times and for that trip the weather was absolutely perfect and the trees were gorgeous.

Janeen, that's a deal not to pass up, hope you all have fun and can't wait to see all your wonderful pages...I haven't been to WDW in years, kinda got burned out of going every year when Anitra was doing competitive cheeleading. If I live to be 100 I'll never scrap all the Disney or cheer pics I have LOL.

Goodnight!

With school and the excess amount of papers my teachers like to assign this semester, I don't even know how I'm finding time to scrapbook. Of course, I'm also wanting to get through 2011, so I'm just plugging away and trying to keep it as simple as possible. Also, by the time I got to the last few pages, I got sick of trying to figure out what to do so just slapped something together.

I'm hoping that things slow down, paper-writing wise, or I at least figure out how to do it in less time. LOL

Morning. It is not a good Monday morning over here. I backed my SUV into the side of the garage door. I'm really not that much of an idiot, but with the weather turning colder we started parking both vehicles in the garage, and my Sub was not in it's normal position...obviously too close to the side. I scratched the side of the vehicle, and ripped off part of the side paneling on the garage. Russ is going to be so thrilled. NOT. I am so pissed at myself right now.

And Addy is home sick today. Took her in for a strep test already, which was negative, but she is pretty miserable. I had planned on going shopping today to return all the jeans I bought her in August for the next size, because nothing fits her! She has had such a huge growth spurt. Guess I can clean or something. I am just so mad at myself!!! Guess it's better me that wrecked it then someone else, but geesh. Ggggrrrrr! I need a glass, or bottle, of wine already.

Oh, Sara - that's sux. I did that once when my car was on the side of the garage I wasn't used to. Scratched the side and ripped the side mirror off. Nice. My mom did it once too, many years ago - and my dad still asks her how fast she was going - she actually pulled a gap in the cinderblock wall of the garage. LOL They had to rebuild the wall. Hope poor Addy feels better soon!

I haven't been to Disney World since 2005 We went 5 times to FL and once to CA between 1999 and 2005, but then it got harder to take Cassie out of school, and I won't go during the crowded and/or hot times - no summer or school breaks. Yuk.
