Nan- As usual, your list blows me away!!

Yeah, we got a party boat... Someone at the beach was selling, and DH got a good deal. It happened really fast the last time we were at the beach, and we kind of were in the right place at the right time :teeth: But in his mind it's not a "Real Boat"...ya know? That's why he is telling everyone it's a gift for me.... But they are so much fun, and I'm sooo excited!! So, I told him to get over it...he now owns a "PopPop Boat" :banana:

OH, and get this...the boys gift was a hot pink fishing rod. And when you turn the reel, it has LED lights in pink and green :rotfl2: How funny is that? I was :rotfl: playing with it...

Par-tay boat! I wanna come on the party boat!

Morgan and I are hanging out today. I've got to go to the grocery store (and she has to come with me, like it or not). Other than that, I've got swap stuff to do and a book to read. No big plans for the day. It's supposed to be hot!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hey All! I have decided to change my screen name to MIAMOM.:lmao:

Stoopid Facebook - gotta get off there and back over here! I think of you all everyday and do come and read up late at night!

Deb!! I wanna see pics of pretty flashing fishing rod!!!

Ashley hope your move is going well.

Christy - glad dad is home - how is he doing??

DH is done with chemo - blood counts are rising SLOWLY - no where near normal levels but no longer critically low so this is good. The moved him from a biweekly count to 2 weeks - so Dr pretty much is on wait and see mode. They will watch his counts and some secret "ratio" but for now he are praying this means remission. Average remission time for hairy cell leukemia is 10 years. We also pray the little hairballs do not come back at all.

Took my 4H new leader orientation last night!! Consisted of a boring power point presentation. I am now the Spring Valley 4H Scrapbooking leader. Lord help us all.:worship:Another leader was talking about writing letters to the major product companies for donations...HUH - never thought of that.:headache: I really need to work that out before I have my first meeting!!

I, like Deb, am heading to the beach today. Going to spend 2 days visiting a friend. Little one is eating a pop tart, bigger little one is eating cereal. Laundry is drying. 1/2 packed. Finish the dishes. Gotta run the garbage up to the dumpster. See if we can hit The Little Gym on the way outta town for a make up class. Drop of the drycleaning. And on way - spy scrapbook stores and Barnes and Noble for some oceanside reading.:cool2:

Will be back Thursday! Gotta hit the ground running - DD has a horse show in Sunday but before that BEEG 4H fundraiser dinner on Saturday - gotta set up tables and silent auction items. Throw in a surprise 40th birthday party Sunday evening for dear friends wife. Whew. Its gonna be a busy weekend.

So trying to be less MIA,
Johnna

TRM
He's doing much better thanks for asking. He's going upstairs to his beloved library and office. Still sleeping downstairs in the hospital bed since it's easier getting in and out. but he went out to the grocery store and walmart, although he's found out that was a little much for him. He has his college roommate coming the end of this week and then friends coming from florida on the 17th so he has plenty of ambition to get better. He's got lists a mile long for my boys to do for him.

Hope all stays well with DH's blood counts and prayers for continued health.

Our plumbing has just totaly backed up- there are good asnd bad points about living in a parsonage-
the good- it will be fixed and we don't have to pay- t

he bad- we have to get ahold of a member of the trustees before calling a plumber- there are 9 of them and not one was home. We called someone else in the church to get the name of a plumber that is used by the church. About 10 minutes after we called the plumber we got a call back from the head of trustees who suggested it might be the spetic tank but I know that was pumped out last August when the plumbing backed up then and we had to get a whole new bathroom.

We have a plumber coming between 4-5 and until then we have to drive to the church to use the bathroom or any plumbing- I think we will be going out to dinner tonight and the thawing chicken will be cooked on Thursday night.

OH good gravy Rebecca... I remember that being done last year.... :) I sure hope that it is an easy fix so you all don't have to drive back and forth too many days...
Yup, we'd be out to dinner for sure....
I just paid book rental/class dues/bought athletic passes for my family (could not add my stepsons because they don't live w/ us and we don't get their mailing info... she tried...)... I'm just awaiting DS13's schedule to know how much I'm going to owe on him.. my guess is $120.

Oh Rebecca what a pain. Hopefully it will be a fairly quick and painless fix. I hate issues like that.

Give me the plumbing problems Rebecca, You can have my issues.

My car bit the dust today. DH and I went to look at a new car but the one we went after was not there, the General manager had it for the weekend.
So we go back tomorrow.
I really really don't want another car payment! We were just getting ahead of the game.

I am so sorry to hear about your car Buffy!

Thanks, I guess I shouldn't complain to much. The Montero lasted me 7 years and is 500 miles shy of 200,000. I just didn't want a car payment for a few more years.

PrincessNancy96
08-04-2009, 04:14 PM
He had it for the weekend? Uh, the last time I looked at my calendar the weekend was OVER!!!!

Someone needs to send that GM a memo!!! Sorry that it wasn't there...

:hug: I know what you mean.. I pay mine off in January...and we are buying a newer used one in December....ugh!

Debbie, congrats on the party boat and pink fishing rod. Sounds really cool. Have an awesome time at the beach!!!

Rebecca, sorry about the plumbing problems. I hope it gets fixed quickly.

Buffy, sorry about your car. We need to get a new one, but I sure don't want a car payment.

DS and I have been touring Chicago and that boy is walking me off my feet. I'm so tired and sore!!!! But, it's an awesome city and we've had so much fun. Today we went to the Museum of Science and Industry and they had a special Harry Potter exhibit going on. Oh, that was fantastic!!!! It was props and costumes and things from the movies and it was so interesting and fun. The bad thing was that they wouldn't let you take any photos in there. I was NOT happy about that! But, I got a picture of DS outside of the exhibit against the sign and with the flying car from the Chamber of Secrets which was sitting in the lobby of the museum.

We're getting used to the busses and haven't got on the wrong one yet. Luckily the hotel has an awesome concierge who is helping keep us straight. It also helps that we don't have to ride too many busses because so much is within walking distance.

I'm waiting for DH to get out of his meetings to figure out what we'll be doing tonight.

Glad you are having fun.. hopefully you missed all the nasty storms...they came thru here something fierce today... damage everywhere.... ours was just limbs... we've already ckd the roof line for safety measures...

08-04-2009, 04:24 PM
I guess the GM is off on Mondays. But the salesman was all over the mini and offered to come in tomorrow (his day off) to show us the car. He was a really nice guy.

Stephanie, they did that to us at the Narnia exhibit in Kansas City, there were so many photo ops but no one could take pics!

Glad you guys are having a blast! I have heard the Chicago is a wonderful city. It's on our list as the starting place for our Route 66 trip.

Buffy sorry to hear about the car. Mine just had a boat load of work done and I'm sure will need more. I hate vehicle repairs and hate the process of buying one more, although the toyota dearer knows I'm going to beat him up since I've asked him how many more I have to buy before I get a free one. Between DH and I we've bought 5+ my dads. I think I'm intitled to a new one.
Good luck tomorrow

Buffy--I'm sorry about the car!!

Rebecca--I'm sorry about the plumbing problems!!

DIT--congrats on 3000!!

My lists have just been going in the junker the past 2 days. I have SO much to do for work, and school starts Friday. Therefore, nothing's getting folded, cleaned, etc. It's always busy this time of year--and then I feel like I'm accomplishing nothing! Ok, sorry to whine! Just gotta get my butt in gear! It'll be better after this week & next!!

I remember you having potty problems this time last year. Is this going to be an annual August angst?

I certainly hope not- the pipe from the house to the septic system was clogged. The plumber said we needed to use cheaper, thinner toilet paper :sad2:so it doesn't happen again.

No photos whatsoever. It was so hard to keep my camera put away as there were so many great photo ops (like DS sitting in Hagrid's chair). I was soooooo NOT happy. I saw a guy take a photo and they made him delete it off his camera so they are watching. But even without the photos it's so worth it. DS and I absolutely loved it. The attention to detail in all the props is amazing.

Same way with the Pirate exhibit at our museum. No photos inside at all.
The Body exhibit, same thing.

The Dinosaur one though, they encouraged photos. So go figure. Must have something to do with copyright laws.
