Rebecca- great los - I left you lots of love!

Sandra - pm me your email address and I will send you the instructions for the trifold. They are not totally clear but good enough I think!

Here is my swing-fold card - copied from a sweet card Rosita sent me!

Linz, that is so funny!!! I've done that on a small basis. Like they're on my head or something, but never on such a grand scale. LOL!!! Didn't you find it curious that you could actually 'see' to call your hubby? That cracked me up!!!!

Great pages Rebecca.

Delaina's been asking me about a retreat too. Only she wants to go to that place we went to last time. I really liked it there too. But I'll go anywhere. If I can spend time with my favorite ladies I don't care where it is.

Hello to my little sister - I am so glad you enjoyed your goodies and hope they can be of good use to you.

I love the stories and am glad to hear that your family spoils you as you deserve. I am sure you do the same back.

Big Hugs to you my dear.

I'll take some of the quiche and the pudding - the rest of it you can keep



I made chocolate brownies - my first time ever -- and they turned out pretty good. A little too squidgy possibly, but it seemed like an ok-fault with brownies!



Yum Yum Yum - brownies are my total weakness.

Pink when one of my boys does something super sweet, I tell him he is my favorite...at the moment. Cuz a mama can't really have a favorite right?
Rachel insurance...maybe I will check into that. I am still waiting for the repair man to come and check it out.
As for your awesome cards, when I tried them a year or so ago, I watched utube videos. They were very helpful.
Trisha please let us know how you and your mom are doing.

Hi ladies. I just wanted to let you know that Delaina is hosting a negative space challenge. I love the look of her pages but can't seem to achieve that look so I'm going to give it a whirl. Here's the link to the challenge.

checking in from Houston. We will be closing soon... getting ready for the walk through now.

My Mom is doing better today. They gave her a blood transfusion last night and are checking for internal bleeding today. If all goes well she can go home this evening or tomorrow. I was up at 4 this morning heading to H. I am catching a flight right back to Dallas after closing so i can be with her.

Pink is it your birthday today? Seems like you are Queen Pink tonight. Lucky lady and I know you deserve to be spoiled. So do I, but nobody's here doing it. LOL!!! Which of the darling girls bought you cookies. How sweet. That's truly adorable. I deserve cookies too, but nobody here to do that either. Maybe living alone isn't as much fun as I thought it was!!

Rachel, thank you so much for the instructions. Ihaven't looked at the email yet but I will soon.

Sandra, I hope the best for your daughter and grand daughter. If she did go back I know you'll be disappointed but you just have to let them make their own way.

I just finished hours of paperwork so I'm ready to hit the hay and relax for awhile. Maybe watch some Walking Dead in my cozy bed. Hey, that rhymes. LOL! Good night ladies. Tomorrow isn't the 13 anymore so I hope you have a better day.


No, it is not my birthday...I think I'm in such an awful mood, the kids are being nice to me out of self preservation more than anything else. And Dan knows the drill...

Pink, I say, 'If you can train them, they're keepers.' I'll be in a bad mood for cookies!!! Now maybe is the time to spring on Dan that you need a Florida vacation.....

My suspicions were correct, my daughter went back to her ex. I'm so worried about the girls, very worried. As for my daughter, I just want to shake her, and shake her hard. I'm going to do tough love with her AGAIN. Will it ever sink in?

LINZ - I make an non-alki Trifle at Christmas. When I lived at home I'd make one to take to my auntie's house on Boxing Day, now that was one huge Trifle, and back then it had sherry in it.
When making the Beef Stew do you Oxo cubes or Bisto gravy granules?
Congratulations on the money win!!! I would be an excellent bowler if points were scored for gutter bowls.
JUST INCASE YOU CAN'T READ THIS. WHERE ARE YOUR GLASSES AT THE MOMENT? Sorry, I had to tease you.

NIKILYNN - For all this year has thrown at you, I'm proud of you, you're a strong, strong lady, bravo!!!

TRISHA - How is your Mum feeling?
Did the closing go as planned?

TINADN - Mince Pie (hamburger pie), I've not had it in years. Now I need to make one for dinner, well not tonight, tonight it's toasties and soup, maybe tomorrow night, yup dinner tomorrow night is solved!!

KIMBERLY - Regarding the blood tests, I hope the results are good news for you

I may need to do that Florida vacation thing though...you know you are one of my very favorite vacation locations!

My new iphone came today and I've spent all day trying to get it back like my old one with all the stuff saved on it. That's the only part I hate about a new phone!

Have a great day all of you!

I forgot to mention my bad day...
I thought I could smell something hot, went to my clothes dryer and smoke was pouring out of it and the behind it.Took clothes out. They stink and are probably ruined. I load of jeans too, so expensive. We unplugged the dryer and waiting for the repairman. Debating on hitting the laundry mat tomorrow:(
Nothing compared to car repairs or hospital visits, but thought I'd share.




My dryer died too, new one is being delivered tomorrow. What a week for us all!

Kimberly it's true and I love hearing all of your stories actually made me think about having another one if i find a man worth having a baby by. It might do keke well to have a sister or brother but I have a long time before that will ever happen



Awwww, Shatema! I think you will find a great guy and Keke will LOVE being a big sister when the time comes! And never say "it will be a long time before that will ever happen"...every single time I've said that, I had a baby in 6-9 months (had three preemies...so I never even got the whole 9 months to get ready!)



That is very true. I just meant I am not looking for anyone. I need time to heal.

Hi Nikilynn, By Nikilynn. LOL!!! You were here and gone while I was still reading posts.

Pink you are a fantastic Mom!!! Not one of us can keep our eyes on our kids 24/7 much less 7 of them. And I'll tell you, I don't think a lease idea is a bad thing. My parents had one for my sister when she was little and people used to look at them like they were aliens, but in reality they are a huge safely precaution!!!They only used it in huge crowded places like theme parks and zoos but I for one think they are a good idea.


I laughed out loud reading this because you said your parents had a LEASE for your sister...I'm thinking that might be the way to go...lease these kids out to other people! I think leasing them out might just be a better idea than putting them on a leash!



I will take one please lol

Shatema, I hope your uncle feels better.

Pink, I hope you get a vehicle soon. Are you getting yours fixed or getting something else? A new engine's not cheap, but if it's payed off that might be the best way to go. If the rest of it is in good shape.

I'm waiting for my Durango to go. Poor girl has almost 240,000 miles on her. But she's still beautiful and still runs like a charm. (Knock wood) I'm really good about keeping her service up though. And goodness know's I can't afford a new one right now.

I got my directions at Split Coast Stampers

Basically you need a 12 inch by 5 1/2 inch piece of cards stock. Place in horizontally on a score pal (or other) and score at 2, 4, 8 and 10 inches.
Flip to vertical and cut 1 1/2 inches from each long side between the 2 and 10 inch score. Those are the cuts.

Good morning!

My Mom is doing good. Turns out she has a couple of bleeding ulcers. The transfusion helped bring her iron and cell count back up. They are sending her home sometime today!

Closing went well and I have a home I need to pick paint colors so our GC can paint and get started on my to do list. I thought I was going to miss my flight last night but I ended up making it.

Hola muchachas!!
Just wanted to quickly check in and let you know I'm still here! Alive (barely) and kicking. I've been so sick the past week! It started off as a cough and now it's a cold. The cough is the worst at night. I wake up in a coughing got and almost throw up! It was so bad last night that dh slept on the couch!!!

Anyway in doing better than I was a couple of days ago. Hopefully I'll be back later (if I don't end up taking more NyQuil) to comment in all your happenings.

Hope everyone is having a better Thursday than you did Tuesday.

Hugs!!!

Good morning ladies. I'm off to work here shortly. I've got to show this new girl how to do windows again. LOL!!! I'll work with her all day to make sure she's got it down.

Nikilynn, you were on for awhile last night. I went to bed early. sorry I missed you. Don't you love the picnic basket idea. I forgot about that until recently. I struggle everytime someone gets married on what to get them. I'm just not sure you can get those nice baskets anymore. I think I got that one at Belks, Dillards, Penney's, one of those big department stores.



i love that idea. I will have to remember it

I got a laugh out of imagining someone giving me cleaning supplies. It would have to be someone who is either delusional, or has wishful thinking, to imagine that I'd actually use them! lmao



I think that cleaning supplies would be great for you...along with some baby bottles, baby blankets, you know....all the stuff you LOVE!!! I adore you Tina!

P.S. I know where you could get a big weiner!



Oh she is going to get you.

Yep, that psych ward vacation might just be what she needs. Personally I think screaming can be a good thing.
I have a post-it for my door that says "Dr. Crabby". When I have had enough, I put it up and people know to steer clear with the questions until a different time. We all reach our limit sometime.




Love the post it note.

It must be the day for the poop to hit the fan.
My daughter left the house with my DGD this morning with her shocking pink suitcase, and I've no idea where they are. Called everyone I know and no luck locating them. I'm not so worried about my daughter, but my DGD is sick.

TRISHA - What a [email protected] about your day. I hope your Mum gets good news, and that the closing goes well and you'll be back at your Mum's bedside soon.

SHATEMA - Go ahead, SCREAM, HOLLAR, YELL, GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT, look I'm even cheering you on Hope you feel better now?

I'm dropping off a mini bomb of cards I made. I'm in a card swap and I'm did adult male Birthday cards.

Trisha...oh I'm so sorry your day is so awful! I am thinking about you and your mom and saying a prayer for her too!

I agree that today is awful though too! Our van's motor blew up today and we had to have it towed and now I don't have a car. It is going to be a big expense to fix and to top it off, it broke down 45 minutes from our home and we had all the little kids with us who had a WONDERFUL time waiting on a tow truck. It was a fun-filled day here too! WEEEEEEE WEEEEEEE WEEEEEEEEEEEEE



It really was one of those days. I hope you can get the van fixed.

If you pm me your email address, I am happy to send you the sheet of directions for the trifold. I already sent them to Debs and Sandra - so we will see their creations any day now!

I have also had fun doing the swing-fold, and today, the triangle fold cards. I will post that latter one tomorrow when its light enough to take a photo!

I have just come back from sorting out my mum's house for the last time. It is now all empty (apart from some folding chairs that my sister wanted) and all the cleaning stuff which we suddenly discovered under the sink! She is going to pick it up tomorrow.

I stayed with my sister last night. Her son was in the room next to me, and had his tv on until 02.50. In the end I looked at my phone, saw I had his number, and sent him a text saying 'please could you turn it down?'! He did, immediately, and said 'So sorry'!

This morning I went to see my mum. I called in at a LSS first (we dont have one anywhere near home, so this was a real treat). I can tell you that the treat of going there was my reward for my mum being...a bit of a nightmare.

The staff greeted me with the fact that she was refusing to have a shower. Her room was so staggeringly hot I could barely breathe, and it was absolutely STINKY! She has a bladder infection, but refused to let the nurse take her bloods this morning. She refused to get dressd and had a nightie on with a skirt underneath. She had been throwing food on the floor and I had taken her a couple of the brownies I had made - she started to spit the nuts on the floor till I yelled at her.

If ever I needed a reminder that I would be unable to deal with her if she was living with me, then that was it. I was so grateful to the staff!

So Trisha, everything is coming up roses now. That's good!!

Imelda, I hope you're feeling better soon. It's great to see you back!!!

Rachel,yeah, I don't think you could cope with your mom at your house. Don't ever feel guilty about it!!!

I'm home from work finally and exhausted. Just scarfed down a bowl of soup. I wish I had some bread for a sandwich to go with it, but oh well. I'm off to make my nephew a birthday card.

Deb I could make you a chicken sandwhich. I made the chicken in the crockpot earlier. Do you want lettuce, tomato and mayo on it?

Trisha glad things are looking up!

Oh Rachel, do hang in there! Sounds like you should have been entitled to buy out the LSS to make up for putting up with your mum.


I have been very emotional and vulnerable today. Seems like Murphy (you know the, if it can go wrong it will, Murphy's law guy) has moved into my spare bedroom!! My new dryer was delivered this morning, turns out new dryers require a different electrical hookup than we have which means buying another part, hiring an electrician to put it in and rescheduling the dryer delivery and more trips to the Laundromat! Oh joy! I know that this is just a small annoyance but it's been that kind of week and I am warn down.

I am off to bed now. I trust that things will look better in the morning.

Happy Friday everyone! I have just come back from a nice slow coffee and cake with my ex-secretary, who is recovering from surgery to her thumb. We had a nice catch-up!

Here is my triangle fold card - anyone can try this with a bit of 4" x 12" card!

OMG It was the best one...ever!!! I bawled like a baby at the end.....I'm going to go see it again tonight....I think it is just as good as the book and dare I say, maybe a little better. They definitely did a wonderful job visually with translation of certain aspect of the story.

You will love it!!!

Little Sister Sandra!! I hope you are doing well and getting some scrapping time in....

I have just ordered your goodies, while drinking my morning tea. It's cold here where I am at.....too cold....

I hope it arrives before Thanksgiving, but it might not. But then again, you are closer to scrapbook.com than I am here in the heart of the country...

Enjoy your goodies!!

Rebecca, A chicken sandwich with all the yummy toppings would have been perfect!!! After my soup I ended up having some Supremely Spicy hummus and whole grain pita chips. So at least it was something healthy.

That's weird about your dryer. Seems like all those plug ins should be universal.

Good morning ladies. I'm going to be watching the grands tomorrow. I haven't seen them in awhile so I'm super excited. I know little Drake's got to be growing like a weed!! And he's so darn cute!! Back when Brooke and Shane were his age I had them every single weekend. It's hard not seeing them but everything has changed since then.

So.....

Hope everyone has a good day!!!!

I forgot to mention my bad day...
I thought I could smell something hot, went to my clothes dryer and smoke was pouring out of it and the behind it.Took clothes out. They stink and are probably ruined. I load of jeans too, so expensive. We unplugged the dryer and waiting for the repairman. Debating on hitting the laundry mat tomorrow:(
Nothing compared to car repairs or hospital visits, but thought I'd share.




My dryer died too, new one is being delivered tomorrow. What a week for us all!

note to self page 100



I got my new one yesterday. The man said the previous one was hooked up wrong (wrong vent system) Probably 5 years worth of lint backed up in the tube. He said we were very lucky I was home and noticed the fire.
*lesson learned, get your dryer and venting cleaned yearly ladies*

Morning!

Linz: Ooo..I can not wait to see it!

Andy called me this morning to tease me. He said "Trish, We have owned the house in Houston less than 48 hours and you have all ready torn it up"! Lol
The contactors showed up at 6:30 this morning to demo the master bath room I am a quick worker!
I should be headed to Houston either tomorrow or Sunday morning. My Mom is doing well.

Does anyone know how to get rid of that musty old people smell in a house? The carpet is coming out, I repainting, and having the ducts cleaned.
I am worried it isn't going to be enough to take care of the problem.

Tinadn - Sounds like a fun weekend - we rarely have craft shows around here anymore, I do miss them.

Trisha - I hope you will have before and after pictures to share. So glad your mother is better.

Rebecca - Hope things have improved for you and your dryer is up and running.

Imelda - Glad you are feeling better.

Sandra - so sorry you daughter is not heading in a good direction. It is so hard to sit and worry about that which you can't change.

Kimberly - Any decisions on a vehicle yet? What do you think of the new Iphone - I have been thinking about one but I do like my HTC.

Shatema - how is your uncle - better I hope.
