No work for me today. M has crazy hair day at camp, so I have to go and make 6 braids in her hair and spray it blue, oh fun...

I'm working on swaps today. Have to figure out something to grill for dinner, or something cold. Supposed to be stupid hot here again today. Blah.

Hope everyone has a good day. Holl, I'm here if you want to "talk."

Epcot sounds really good right now. Wish I was Rebecca.
Going to CKC sounds like fun. Have a great time Deb.
Enjoy your Friday Brooke!
Pixie Dust to get through the day Holly.
Sending thoughts of ice cubes and snow cones your way Jennifer.
Sending you a box of tissues Buffy. Those books must have collected a lot of dust from way back then.

The dogs have decided that they are now inside dogs. :rotfl2: So if you have white hairs stuck to your swap pieces, it is totally my fault. Huskies blow their undercoats every year. Sometimes twice. They are just trailing their hair everywhere, but the really really want to be inside. And I promised I would do what they wanted [as long as they didn't keep messing up the carpets with -well- you know]

Vacuum.
Vacuum.
Dust.
Then vacuum.

It will take that many times to get up the hair.:rotfl2:

Grill chicken and corn for dinner tonight. :thumbsup2

Brooke, good luck with the parents today.
Buffy, I hope you feel better.
Holly, :hug:
Jennifer, I bet your DD looked cute with blue hair and braids!!
Ann, all my swaps have speciality fibers included!! My cats are always shedding. There's no way to keep it out of my stuff so everyone gets a little added as an extra bonus!:rotfl:

My day:
Get DH up at 4:45 a.m. so he could travel to Orlando.
Hope that DH doesn't wake up cats or else they'll get me up -- didn't work, DH woke them up when he asked me for $$ so both cats pestered me to get up and feed them.:mad:
Finish gorilla group for AK swap
Laundry
Clean up kitchen

Put chicken in crockpot
Call and make Disney resort reservations for DS's birthday weekend in November. I finally got DH and DS to agree to it!!!!!!

It's raining! Maybe that will break the heat wave. Or, maybe it'll just be wet AND hot. Ah well, I'm inside with my kitties in the air.

Tell me to go get working on swaps...:upsidedow

I'm happy dancing!!!!!!!:banana::yay::cool1: I just got off the phone with Disney with reservations for a long weekend trip for DS's 17th birthday in November!!!!!! DH said no more trips this year, but I whined about it being DS's birthday and that since his birthday actually fell on a weekend it was the perfect time to go. So, he finally gave in!!!!!! yay!!!! DS will probably bring a friend along so since we need 2 rooms we'll stay at Pop Century with the passholder rate. I don't care where we stay, I just want to be at WDW!!!!!!

AlexWyattMommy
07-30-2009, 01:00 PM
Tell you DS to pick me!! :rotfl2:

Congrats on the reservations!:dance3:

Heck w/ you AWM. Her DS already called me! :) LOL

07-30-2009, 01:50 PM
AWM and PN96, I just told DS that you wanted to be his friend so you can come on the Disney trip with us and he :rotfl2:. He said sorry, but no way since you both are a little out of his age range!!!!! Now, Nancy, if he saw your DD, he might change his mind and agree if you'd bring her along!!:rotfl:

The hard part will be finding a friend whose Mom won't mind them missing a day of school.

PrincessNancy96
07-30-2009, 02:04 PM
Yup, PJ is up to going! :) I can have her bags packed... and I'll just chaperone!!

I'm jealous! Have a great trip. We went in November twice and just loved it (it's nice and cool for those of us with super thick blood!).

Wow, DIT's DS is getting a 15 year old for his birthday! Now that's a gift :lmao:

Just wanted to say thanks for the well wishes, I feel a little better today but my back is still sore (probably from moving boxes), but at least I don't feel like someone beat me with a stick.
Getting a headache from the heat though, so I'm chilling out right now eating a Frosty.

Hey everyone- MK and Epcot were nice today- not very crowded- or at least it seemed. I looked at the wait times on the way out though and they seemed outrageous- TT was 100 min and MS was 70.

Which weekend in November are you going for your son's birthday DIT- we are going in Nov for my birthday and staying at BLT.

We're going the weekend of the 13th. That would be cool if we were there at the same time. I'd love to meet you!

What's BLT? I'm sure I know what it is but my mind has gone blank!

rlovew
07-30-2009, 05:02 PM
We will be there for sure on Sunday the 22nd (my birthday) and the Monday and Tuesday afterwards but I might be able to meet you on Friday or Saturday the weekend of the 13th- it just depends on what else is happening. BLT= Bay Lake Towers- we had our guide reserve the room for us when we signed our paperwork for DVC.

Old Lady! Old Lady! Who is this child calling an old lady! Boy, you better run when I get there!!!!

OMG! Having all the kids together would be a hoot.. There would not be a dull moment!!! They'd have to have matching shirts so we can count them and find them easily!

PrincessNancy96
07-30-2009, 05:09 PM
PJ finally sit down to chat today (she's been cleaning her room)... she laughed and said a trip to Disney.. I'm there!!! :)

We won't get there until the evening of the 13th since we aren't leaving until school gets out. We'll then come home on Monday afternoon. One of these times we'll be there at the same time and meet if you can't get there while we're there.

Okay, that makes sense for BLT. All I could think of when I saw BLT was a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich!:rotfl:

PrincessNancy96
07-30-2009, 05:15 PM
LOL!!!

And we must snap photos every few steps.... and grab every photographer we can find... and of course since we'll go to Epcot.. we have to drink around the world to get through!

PrincessNancy96
07-30-2009, 05:17 PM
OOHH! BLT (that is what I first thought of too)...but I need a quick dinner tonight since both boys have practice til 7:45pm.. so we'll grab some microwave bacon for sandwiches tonight... they can't eat before this work outs due to the heat... DH gets mad...but he doesn't stay up with them... (where is that shaking head smilie?)

DS said he'd be there, but he'll stay apart from us and hang out with the older kids and they'll tell everyone that they don't know any of us!:rotfl2:

PN96, drinking around the world would be quite an experience and hilarious after awhile!

PrincessNancy96
07-30-2009, 05:20 PM
Hey, with all us old ladies drinking.... who do you think is watching the younger kids.. it's your DS and PJ!


yup, drinking around the world would be a hoot..cause if we start at Mexico w/ a margarita.. I'll be sauced before we hit our next stop!

PrincessNancy96
07-30-2009, 05:26 PM
Ok, sorry to cut out on the fun but I have to get my kids to their practices... grocery run, sit @ practices.... home for dinner, sort laundry and than I'll check back in.. everyone behave but have fun!!!

morgansmom2000
07-30-2009, 06:29 PM
I'll meet you there to drink around the world! I'm sure we could pay the older kids to watch the littler ones. I'm a cheap date though, I wouldn't get too far around the world with drinks...

AlexWyattMommy
07-30-2009, 06:45 PM
I kinda did that once when I just 21 and living in FL.
There is no way I could possibly do it now. I would be tipsy and listing to one side after the second country. :lmao:

07-30-2009, 07:18 PM
I am sure I wouldn't be able to drink very far either- plus if I am going to bother with alcohol it has to be something I really like and I don't like much ( just Strawberry Dacquiris and sparkling wine.

I'm up to drinking around the world, How many countries? I'll have to get back in practice but I used to be able to get 1/2-3/4 of the way around. After that DH had to help me out!!! Nan I'm the same hieght but weigh a heck of a lot more.

AlexWyattMommy
07-30-2009, 07:41 PM

07-31-2009, 10:25 AM
LOL Ash!!!

I'll give anyone several of mine just to know what it is like to have 1 again... :) I love mine dearly but 3 in high school; 1 in middle school (to be in HS next year) and a 3rd grader.. OH MY!!!
Good thing now is... oldest is a senior can drive himself. unfortunate part, he thinks he is in charge @ both houses... newsflash hit him this year that NOT at my house.. he abides by our rules or no college education... :)
PJ will be driving come December.. that will save some headaches..but give me a bunch too...
DsS15 (just turned 15 yesterday) is an attitude... erk.. no more discussions there because I foresee ..... hitting the fan next week w/ our visitation week and 2 a day football practices. I foresee big issues.. good thing DH is home all week..
DS13 is good... he is getting better about being responsible for being ready for his events on time...
DS8...well, there is my problem.. he is like DsS15... gosh help me!!!

joyah
07-31-2009, 11:19 AM
2 isn't bad it's when they out number you. We'd always said 3 was the magic number but DS 8 didn't sleep till he was 3 so I threw in the towel. Now that they are both older and with basketball and baseball going to 3-5 days a week and swim team at 5-6 days I'm glad we never had the 3rd. I'd never be able to keep up. Although there are still days I'd like to have a baby around, then I get a reality check thinking about diapers.

Just think Jennifer Morgan won't be that far away and we have a wonderful dance studio for her to teach or just dance at if she decides to stay with it. They have lots of adult classes.

morgansmom2000

She wants to be a dance teacher and she's not allowed to live too far away from me! It sounds like a good plan in the works!
