All right. . .less than a week 'til back to school, so I've got to get back in the list habit. I found out Tuesday that my co-worker (we are the only 2 counselors) has breast cancer. I'm so worried for her, and also gearing up to start school--so stress is on my mind!! One step at a time, though. And for the next 4 days, that's to enjoy DS!!!

Here's my list:

1. Caffeinate
2. Try to get up early to do some P365 journaling--didn't happen. . .DS had a rough teething night3. DS up
4. DS breakfast
5. Walk--need to walk extra. . .trying to lose 5 lbs before DS's party6. DS lunch
7. DS nap
8. Fold laundry
9. Project 365 pic
10. DH late--meeting at work
11. Pack DS's bag for him to go to Mom's on Thursday (DH & I are going to see Harry Potter. . .first time we've been out alone since DS was born)
12. Watch "So You Think You Can Dance"
13. Make list for work
14. Clean one room of the house

Everyone have a safe and happy Wednesday! Remember to find joy in your day!!

My list today is short. Lifes too complicated to fly today!

1. Feild trip
2. Figure out life
Im in a pickle cause my family wants me to move home (two hours away). I dont have a job there. I have a job here but it wont be enough hours to pay all my bills. I have 3 freinds here, one that I am VERY close to (and close to her kids). Shes been having anxiety problems lately and ended up in the er for chest pain today. By my family I only have one freind. I have a guy friend up there too that im dating but its not serious. I have two little sisters and a eldery grandmother up home. Up home I would have a room and only pay around 200 for all my bills. Up here I pay $600 a month. What would you do?

11. Pack DS's bag for him to go to Mom's on Thursday (DH & I are going to see Harry Potter. . .first time we've been out alone since DS was born)


Have fun! DH and I got to see an advanced screening of it on Monday night and we both loved it! There were a few things that I wished they would have done differently but it was a great movie.

So, a little update on me. We have found a house and are moving in on August 2nd (or around there). Happy birthday to me, get to move on my birthday. Actually it will be fun- we have much more room in this house. I will actually have a scrap room. Sure, it'll share some room with the kids toys, but the scrap stuff will be out of the bedroom! I am going back to work (not really my first choice, but a necessary choice). So I'm in the process of applying for jobs. :scared: This is all a little stressful, but I know once we get over these next few hurdles we'll be fine.

Y'all all have a great day!

Good Morning!

Good Luck on the job front aroyer!
Flying Babyb- I can't tell you what to do- I would suggest seeing if you have a way to get more hours where you are or can reduce your bills in some way- maybe see about getting a 2nd job for your off hours if you want to stay there- if you would rather go home see about finding a job there before you commit to moving. If you are torn between staying and going apply in both places and see what comes through. As a pastor's wife prayer factors a lot into my decisions but that is up to you.

SIOH- Sorry to here about your co-worker- enjoy this last week at home with your little bit.

joyah- sorry FIL is being a pain

Nancy- you are tiny from what I have seen but good luck with everything- I know your sister is not your favorite person in the world

Today:
Clean up snack trays
Clean computer desk (I am trying to make the family room more little puppy proof)
work on swaps
upload and order pictures
dinner- ????
clean up scrap stuff and get it out away
fold and put away laundry
empty dishwasher

I'm not sure from where...but I hit triple digits for the first time in my life when I was not pregnant! I only hit those digits when I was pregnant...
I told my mom, DH and my DD that I need to lose 5 lbs and they said the same as you.. .I'm going over to a friends house and try the scale w/o my shoes and see if the #s look better.... LOL

Thanks Rebecca... It will all work out.. I just worry about small things that are meaningless...

Ok, got up w/ a storm that fizzled out when I came upstairs to check on the kids..but it had woke the kids w/ a thunder roll that rattled the whole house for alike a minute (I know it wasn't that long).... so I really need to get ready and get my bottom in gear and attack my list..

My scrapbook room is crying to be cleaned and used again!!!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Oh sweetie, good luck.. Sorry to hear he isn't playing nice...
If you need to vent send me a PM or email.. I'm here to listen...
Maybe offer a few suggestions on what we could do... (only to make you laugh hysterically, I have a wicked sense of humor at times when I'm in a situation that needs resolved and I can't get it resolved peacefully.... the if only I could do this.... or this.... or better yet..... ) Another reason I started the "Frequent Flyer Program to the Moon" for my DH and others at times! LOL

Hey all - checking in - Is it really the 15th already!!??

Not sure what day it is...checking #1 post - Wednesday!! It's Wednesday!:rotfl:

DH is done with chemo shots - now we wait to see what blood counts will do and pray the new cells return healthy and bald!:)

Joyah so sorry FIL is being a pain. We live on a ranch here so kinda understand in a not really, 3000 mile away, kind of way. Sorry you have to deal with this.

Ashley!! A new house!!:banana:With a scrapping room!:banana::banana: I will keep my fingers crossed for your job search.

Today -

Car to the shop - some part DH ordered has been in for like 2 months - guess its not intergal to the car actually going....:confused3:rotfl:

PU Brown sugar - secret pig food recipe - 4H pig still not eating much but is at least putting on weight now.

DDs 2nd birthday is tomorrow!! Time flies.

DH birthday is Saturday. Family dinner is Friday night - MIL and nephew also celebrate birthdays this month. DH cannot go though - with his WBC count at .8 :scared1:his immune system is slightly impaired. We will bring him a "daddy bag" from PF Changs. YUM.

Hugs to all.

Seriously?

OMG, M woke up with a swollen eye. She's always been hyper-sensitive to bug bites. She got one on her eyelid and could barely open it. I gave her some Benadryl and called the doctor...They aren't too concerned about that one, but she has another on the back of her right arm that is looking a little "bullseyeish." Doc traced an outline around it, and said f it's bigger this evening, we need to call for a prescription for an antibiotic. You can actually feel the heat coming off of it. She didn't have a fever, but was a bit "warm." I ended up bringing her to camp (it's TWIN DAY!), could their directions be any more confusing? OMG, I got lost 4 times.

So, I'm at work, but the boss is leaving soon, so I'll take a quick run over to Mike's once he's gone ;)

I read everything...Ash, good luck with your move! Christy, sorry FIL is being a PITA. I can't remember much else...sorry.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Oh, Harry Potter, DH surprised me with tix for the 1:50 show tomorrow! I'm excited, but I really wanted to see Holly...Hopefully, I can get over there in the am.

trying to find a way to say how much you all mean to me, but right now I'm hurting and really can't find any of the right words to use.
thank you for taking the time to say your sorry. I'm trying very hard not to stick my head in the sand and still go on with my routines. At least Dh and the boys are out right now so I can rant and rave like a lunitic. It's pretty sad when you have to tell an adult they are and idiot and no longer allowed on your property.

Thanks for listening.

It pi$$es me off when the people who say they love us treat us like crap...it seems like they feel like they can say or do anything they want to and we still have to love them, no matter what.

I'm sorry things are icky now, Christy. :hug:

I would love to see what your room looks like when its done. Mine needs help (BIG HELP) and I love seeing other "real" rooms. Mines so bad I cant walk through it since theres a over abundance of excess stuff.

I'd show you but you'd laugh your butt off.. I have a 5" table up against one of the walls in my laundry room... I literally can turn around walk 2 steps and be at my washer and dryer.. I use the top of them for work space too. DH laughs because he is forever moving paper or the trimmer off the top of my washer so he can pull loads out or put loads in! LOL

ETA: I'm just waiting patiently as my oldest stepson will be off to college Aug 2010..and than that room is MINE! MINE! MINE! I plan on getting a photo of the seagulls at Nemo's ride and the recording that screams MINE! MINE! MINE!...

mines a mini pool table ( with a chunk of plywood on top for a desk)in a room with a washer, a tiny closet, lots of leftover funiture, a gazelle and tons of toys (and I dont have kids). Of course with all the crap in there im not sure where my scrap goodies are.

What would you do?

Only you can decide what is best for you, but ask yourself honestly what that would be. Sit down and write the pros and cons about living at each place.

So, a little update on me. We have found a house and are moving in on August 2nd (or around there). Happy birthday to me, get to move on my birthday. Actually it will be fun- we have much more room in this house. I will actually have a scrap room. Sure, it'll share some room with the kids toys, but the scrap stuff will be out of the bedroom!

Y'all all have a great day!

Ashley, congrats on the house. Do you have pictures? Is it near your parents? Yeah for getting a scrapbook room :woohoo: or a girl cave as I call mine.

Oh Christy, I am sorry to hear that. I, too, have family stories that would make ones hair curl. OMG :scared1: That is why my hair is curlier than a spiral.

Here's to DH's blood count to be where it should be.

I love PF Changs after recently discovering it in DC in April. Happy Birthday for DH. I bet I know what his birthday wish will be.:wizard:

Jennifer, how is Morgan feeling tonight? Has the swelling gone down? I am super allergic to spider bites. Turns all hard and red. DH has a similiar reaction to a horsefly one year.

Nanc, hang in there on the wedding. I know you won't let your knickers get in a knot over meaningless things. There are so many important issues in life.:hug:

Our van had an unexpected trip to the garage today. Needless to say it was a big bill. At least it didn't act up when we were traveling a distance from home. It decided to break down a quarter mile from the mechanics. There is a guardian angel looking over us. :angel:
