anna that sounds just miserable. I would crry benadryl too.

Danielle i am sorry. I can understand the stress. I hope your fil pays soon. Its going to take awhile to adjust to all these changes and having him there.
Have you looked for any jobs not in daycare? Maybe a garden center or something. I know a lot of places hire seasonal workers for the holidays as well.

DD is home today. I took her to the eye dr. and to get a sports physical. We are going to have lunch and go for a walk.

Afternoon.

Its so cool, not even 60 today! yay It feels so nice not to be sweltering and melting and sticky.

Danielle, I get the stress about your money and CC bills. It does take time to get everything all worked out and a house sold. Hang in there. Surely he has some SS he could help make payments on the bills until the house sells?

I've been scrapping again, finally. Will get photos and post them when its bright enough because its been raining off and on since Sunday evening.

DH and Son went to the Astros play off game today, the whole family got our son tickets for his birthday next month. They are NOT cheap.

Well I fell going down a ramp at work this morning. I have bruised ribs and knee on my left side. I am really sore and will probably be worse tomorrow. I hope to take pictures of some of the layouts I made at the crop and post later.

We are HOME!!!! There's no place like home!!
It was a wonderful trip.

Cheryl- Oh NO!!!! I'm so sorry you fell. I hope you aren't worse tomorrow. (gently)

Anna- I'm in love with West Virginia!
I think we came close to you.Are you close to Interstate 77??? If I had known the route we'd be taking to Ohio, I would have arranged to meet you!

Andrea- How nice to get lunch and a walk with your daughter.

Danielle- Is the town in which you are living small?

Denise- your son received a really nice gift from the family. Did he go alone to the game?

Ashley- Are you still at Disney?

Terry- Hope you are having a good time.

Katy- I loved the colors in my nephew's home (where we stayed for 5 days) I thought of you as I looked at them. LOL
Now I want to paint a room.

Rose (sil) and I went to Open Houses one day. All were new, big two stories. They were around $400,000. I can't imagine how young people could afford one. Plus they are sandwiched so close together. The area where Rose's son lives is hilly and the driveways either slope down or up. Rose said kids don't play outside very much. Her son takes Sawyer, the 4 year old to the park to ride her bike. It's a different way of living.

Have a nice evening everyone.

Good morning!

Cheryl, so sorry about your fall. I hope the soreness isn't too bad today. It will probably take a while for a broken rib to heal.

Danielle, like Denise said, selling a home and settling up everything will take time. It will all take place in GOD's timing.

Cathe! Yes I am close to I77! I wish you would have sent me a message and I would have met you somewhere!!!! It would have been so awesome to have met you. I live in Virginia but I am right on the border of West Virginia and can be there in about 25 minutes. Did you travel thru Wytheville, Bluefield, Beckley? Where were you at on I77?

Terry, hope you are having a great week!

We are expecting snow showers this weekend. Our temps have dropped so much and we are now below average with some light wind.

Have a great day ladies!

good morning! Back to routine.
But it feels good.

Anna- yes, we were so close!! Yes those were the towns we zipped bye. You live in a gorgeous area. I could move there.
I sure wish I had looked at a map and discovered how we'd travel to Canton, Ohio from Atlanta Ga. If I had had your phone number in my contacts I would have called you as we were approaching Bluefield and I saw Tazewell on the map. Of course you know men, I don't know if he would have stopped. Yet, he often said this was my trip and was really good at doing what I wanted.

My scraproom is such a mess. I left it messy and now I have dumped all the things I took to the crop.
All I want to do is print some photos and scrap, and make cards.

Cheryl- sure hope you're not as sore as anticipated--or you have a good pain medication.

Have a nice day everyone.

Hello y'all. Its another cool overcast day. I do like the cool temps, its such a huge relief from the brutal summer temps.

Danielle, your nephew is a cute baby. He looked good in the outfit you got him.

Welcome back, Cathe. No place like home for sure! Too bad you didnt get to meet Anna. I was hoping wed get close enough to Danielle to say hi when we went to Yellowstone but we were a ways off.

Cheryl, how ya feeling? Better, I hope!

Yeh Cheryl, third day should be the worst but hope it stops for you soon. Using oils on your bruise? There is one called Cool Azul from Young Living, its a cream, I like it for hurting muscles and the like. It really does help my sore spots.

OH Disney, right, thanks Anna.

Andrea, good suggestions for Danielle. Working in a garden area or holiday area would be a fun thing for a job.

Good morning!!

Anna- I'm kicking myself. If only we could go back in time.

Hope Ashley is having a good time at Disney.

Danielle- Can you be hired as a dog walker? You like dogs.
Perhaps you wouldn't have to work a register at Walmart.
Is there a fast food restaurant that you'd be willing to man the grill?
Your nephew is a cutie.

Denise- we are cool here...............too cool..........cold really. It is 27 this morning. Guess it is time to switch the summer clothes to the dresser downstairs and bring up the fall/winter clothing.

Hello Andrea, Terry and Katy!

I have a hair cut/color this afternoon. YHEA!!

Have a good one.

Cheryl- You sure got a lot more done at the crop than I did.
Maybe today I'll get what little I got done posted.
Hope you are better today.
Did you get an EA? or are you calling today?

Danielle- the scrapping retreat sounds like fun.
It will be nice to have your own room at the crop.
I bet your pumpkin bread will go fast.

I'm home from grocery shopping.
I also had to drop off the CD's I borrowed at the library. As we traveled they were at my feet in a bag. It was a nuisance. We tried the Tina Fey CD, but it wasn't funny. I think you have to be able to see her to appreciate the humor.

I'm going to scrap. see ya later

Good morning!!! I plan on continuing to clean and organize my scrap room today. My reward is going to be ordering myself the hot pink Silhouette Cameo 3. I wonder if I will be able to sell my original Cameo. It would have to be someone local as it would cost too much to ship it.

Sorry Danielle. It is so hard. Money troubles are terrible for sure.

Went to Mario's for supper last night. Love me some cheese enchiladas! Then we had a treat of DQ ice cream. Kids had never been. Sadie thought it was too cold to eat but Cooper loved it.

Hi all!
Hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday.. Michael is coming tomorrow to go with me to pick up my new TV.. (a 50"), and to install it and hook it up... and he's planning on changing the filter for the furnace...(he's an angel) so I'm making him Eggs Benedict for brunch.. it's the least I could do...

Anna, sounds like you are going into winter... I think we're still in late summer.... it's supposed to be in the 80's this weekend... with a cool down next week but only in to the 70's... So sorry to hear about the food reaction you had... at least it didn't keep you from being able to create all those gorgeous cards!

Cathe, I thought we had fall weather for about 5 minutes... this week it is supposed to be around 80 degrees and cool down into the 70's next week... I love all your layouts! You and Cheryl sure did whip them out at the crop!

Cathe and Anna... what? Was Thursday National cut and color day? I also had my hair cut and colored! LOL

Cheryl, Good luck with the cleaning and organizing your scrap room... I should be doing that, but I'll just wait until I'm FINALLY ready to paint it... I have been purging some of the stuff in the drawers and cabinets, but not even making a dent! I love all of your layouts too...and all your cards! You sure did get a lot done at your crop!

Danielle, I'm sorry to hear about the stress you are going through with you FIL's finances... Is your husband going to say anything to his Dad? When my sis and I used to go to retreats we always got to share a room together... which was good sister fun!

Denise, so how was Yellowstone? That place is simply amazing! We were there in 2007... I think its about time I go back. I wish..

Hi Kimberly! You're so right! Time does fly!.... too fast!

Terry, Hope your having fun in Roseburg.... or having busy fun!

I had a blast at my sister's. We only scrapped for about an hour or two one night... There was an airshow at the local airport and we all sat on Jeannie's patio and watched. There were about 10 or 12 of us out there.. My brother took a video of the Blue Angels as they flew (low) over Jeannie's house and you can hear my sister in law and I screaming on the video... with the noise of the jets roaring over and our screaming, it sounded like a ride on a roller coaster... Jeannie's husband cooked a brisket... THE best I've ever had... come to think of it... that's the first time I've ever had it!

Hope ya all have a wonderful weekend....

Hi ladies! I’m taking a few hours off from hubbies, dogs, and those store since I only had 3 hours sleep last night. That snoring thing again and the elephant bugling sound was loud enough to wake the whole hotel! Anyway we are having a great time, perfect weather, and BFF and I can relax some since the total sales for day 1 was ....drumroll....$40,041.60......!!!!!!! We made expenses plus over ten grand profit so far. What a relief.... Pam and I were shocked when we were called onstage at the big dinner and we were given a distinguished service award. Almost cried since I’ve never gotten an award let alone recognition. And I never expect it either

I’ll catch up with all the chatter in a few days. Hope everyone is doing well....

Good morning!!

Guess I need to do laundry today.
Also need to work on cleaning up the scrap room.

I can't find the end pluggy thing to the phone cord. I took it off when traveling so I could plug it into the car outlet (or whatever it is called). I can't find it. I remember thinking when I took it off that where I was putting it wasn't a good idea. We have another one, but really need that plug.

I'm picking up Kian and Oakley today. They start school at 7:30 so therefore they are out early---2:00. That doesn't leave me much time to get anything done. So I best get going!

Have a great day.

Good morning!! Babysitting during the day. They will leave around 5:30 so I will have time to work more on my scrap room. I am not letting myself order the new machine until I have my scrap room organized and cleaned. I have moved the hutch to a different location in there. I like it much better.

Terry, a little recognition goes a long way in volunteerism. I know it feels great that all the long hours and expense of your efforts are noticed. Someone nominated me a long time ago for all the hours I put in volunteering and the city selected me for the award. So I know this from experience. Congratulations, You deserve this !!

Danielle, it really stinks he owes on the house. Good luck. Hang in there.

Cheryl, how ya feeling today?

Yesterday was a relaxing day for me. I sat on my bed, drew in my doodle book and watched TV, I cooked dinner and that is it! AHHHHH feels good to sometimes have nothing pressing to do and just relax! Its been a long time since I did that last.

I've a boat load of layouts to add here, I hope not to overlaod ya. They are simple, quick easy to do LOs cause I just don't have much spare time.

Good morning! I'm up before the sun.

Congratulations Cheryl!!! They won't be sorry they hired you!!!
You'll have weekends free and get to sleep at normal hours.
I'm very happy for you.

Denise- It's nice to see new LOs from you.
Your grandkids are adorable. It's hard to believe how much they have grown in such a short time!!!!
Your photos of the scenery are wonderful.

I have a load of wash going. They are the summer clothes we took to Florida. Guess they will go in the dresser down the basement and won't see daylight til April.

Danielle- I guess next time you take FIL shopping make sure he has his wallet. Did you find out how old he is? I feel for ya.

Ashley- back from Disney?
Did you see Disney night on Dancing with the Stars?
It was fantastic.

Hello to all, I'll try to bbl .

Good morning!! Karyol has a doctor’s appointment at 11:15 today with the kidney doctor. Kidney function is worse and not sure what he will suggest at this point. Starting tonight I work 3 in a row so I will be scarce.

Ashley - Looks like you had lots of fun at Disney. I love all your pictures on Facebook.

Cathe - I am doing laundry today too.

Anna - I will be a nurse instructor in the Education department. I will be teaching patient care orientation classes, doing in-services on the floors of new equipment, attending meetings regarding patient care. It is Monday through Friday 7:30-4:00 no holidays and no weekends.

Karyol is going to have to have a fistula placed to prepare him for dialysis. It takes 6 weeks for the fistula to mature and be able to use. The doctor will put dialysis off as long as he can.

Hi all,

Cathe, did you ever find your phone plug thingy for your phone cord? I’m doing laundry also... I’m washing some tops that I no longer wear. They’re tops I wore to the office and are still in great condition so I’m going to take them to a local consignment shop.

Cheryl, wow! That’s so awesome you got the job! Congratulations!
And M-F... and days! Are you excited?

Danielle, that’s a good idea to start making a list of items to bring to your retreat. Is your FIL making a list of everything you’ve brought for him?

Denise, I love all your layouts! You’ve been busy! That’s so nice you were able to have a “me” day. Sounds like you enjoyed it.

Terry, congrats on the award..you so deserve it for all you do. I hope you’re having fun..

Hi Anna! Hi Ashley!..... is Ashley back from Disneyworld? I haven’t seen her her here for awhile.

Michael helped me get my new TV in and running...yeayyy... actually he put in and got it running... I helped him as much as I could, lol. he even replaced the furnace filter.. it’s up on the ceiling and I don’t do ladders... lol

Well I broke down and bought tickets for the mega lottery.... and if I only get one number right again... I give up...

Back to say hello.

I thought Ashley might be in.

Cheryl- Hoping Karyol can hold off on the dialysis. I don't know what a fistula is. Is it like a port?

Kim- nice "seeing" you. I've been crazy busy too. I need to stay home.

Better go dinner is ready.

Is it you who has the IKEA shelves for your scrapbooks?
I'm thinking about getting them, but not sure where I can put them.

Terry- I think I congratulated you on you award, but wanted to tell you again, just in case you missed it. (or I thought I told you and didn't).

Anna- How is your mother doing?

Ashley--I'm waiting to hear about Disney!!

Denise- you newest LOs are cute.

Cheryl- I sure missed you on IM last night.

Andrea- How are the kids? Has it snowed in the mts. yet?

Danielle- I loved those Christmas trees that liked on FB.

Kimberly- hope you got the rest you needed.

Have a nice day everyone.

When is the retreat Danielle?

Cathe, the score card was the shower invitations my daughter in law's friend made, the score board and the Game day embellishments were both on the cake. I cleaned them up and kept them for Emmett's scrapbook.


What am I doing? First I peeled and cored apples (I have a manual apple peeler, corer slicer) for the dehydrator, got them going then made breakfast for the kids and I, cleaned that up and then did school with Emmett and Cooper. Messed with a very fussy baby, teeth must be the culprit. After school, made lunch for the kids and I, cleaned up, watched a scrapbook video on YouTube as I ate lunch. Then I uploaded some photos to Snapfish for my daughter in law of Christopher, Next it was time for Sadie to go down for a nap, then I got on here. Whew! Thinking about supper as I type. What is for supper?

Glad you got to watch a scrapbook video. What did you watch?

I got my bathrooms cleaned and ironing done so I feel better about things. I've had something every day to make me leave the house. Then I get nothing done when I return.

I'm getting black streaks on my photos from my printer.
I've cleaned the heads twice.
I don't think I'll be buying another Epson printer. I love how the photos turn out thought---when it works correctly.

Good morning!

Katy- Thanks for showing me. I really like that color instead of white. I really don't have anywhere to put the thing. I'm still thinking it out. I really need it thought. If I end up putting it in the scrap room I should get a white finish, as Rum made me a white shelf years ago. Plus the inside of the closet has white drawers and shelves.

Sure wish Ashley would report in!!!!

I did get my printer back in working order. I cleaned the heads about 3 times.

Rum and I are going to the NCR retiree breakfast this morning. I don't really want to go, but told Mary (age 84) I'd go.

Have a nice day everyone.

Good morning! I’m still in bed with my kitties and a cup of tea thinking of what all I have to do today.. it’s still dark outside so I’m staying put for now...

Anna, thank you... but that isn’t half of my albums... in the blue box on the bottom cube is several little 8x8 and 4x4 albums.. next to the shelving unit is a basket full of mini albums,.. and up in the closet are 30 (thin) 12x12 albums...

Ashley..... where are youuuuu???? I miss your posts!

Cathe, glad you were able to get your printer up and running... I have to get more ink for mine. $$$$

Cheryl, I love that altered tin you made! Beautiful!

Danielle, good idea to keep a folder of all your FIL’s expenses... I’ll keep my fingers crossed that his house sells quickly for you! And I hope you have lots of fun at your retreat... you deserve it after all the stress you’ve been going through.

Denise, wow! You sure had a very busy day... I think you need another “me” day after all that!

Kimberly, I hope you had a great relaxing “me” day,

Well, the sun is slowly coming up.... guess I’ll get my rear in gear..
Hope you all have a nice day!

Cheryl, I am sure you will be so missed by your team. Still so happy you are doing this change. I think it will be good for you.


I've got 3 LOs to photograph and share. I am excited about them. They turned out so cute. Happy dance!!!

I'm thinking Saturday I may get to scrap.
I think I spied Jeannie's Vicki in that photo.
Is she on the far right?
It's fun seeing Michael.

Denise- yes sometimes I scream NOT ENOUGH time in the day, and I'm retired. LOL

Danielle- it will be fun for you to get away and be with other crafters. One more week to wait.

I ordered a very inexpensive Chaps brand dress from Kohl's. I love it, but it's so short for a 70 year old. I'll see what my sister says. I have two that I ordered from Talbott's. I liked the Kohl's dress because it is navy blue. The two from Talbott's are black.

I was out running around all day with my Sister in law Rose. We had a good time and I bought 4 Christmas gifts for kids.

Have a nice evening.

Hi all!

Andrea, how was you "Thanksaween" dinner? That is so nice of you to do that for your friend and her kids.

Cathe, My sis went and saw "A Star is Born"... she liked it, but warned me to bring a tissue... so, I hope you had one or two!... Did you like it? and Yep, that was Vicki, Jeannie's DD, on the right.

Danielle, yummm, pumpkin bread! That is so cool you all are having a Thanksgiving feast at your retreat!

Denise, I LOVE all of your Halloween layouts! Especially little Emmett "Doc" Brown! That is sooo cute!

Kimberly, what Cathe said... just jump right in! That's what I did after being gone for awhile.

Oh Ashley.... where are youuuu??? I hope everything is OK!

I think I might go do something different.... like, maybe scrap!

have a good afternoon all!
