Would you feel obligated to come to something like this if the invitation came from the pastor's wife?

SIOH, I hope DS gets to feeling better. Poor little guy.
Rebecca, I agree with the others. I'd be honored and would not feel obligated to go to your tea. I think it sounds like a wonderful idea. I'm not part of your church, but I want to come too!!!!

Are you kidding me? We are under a boil water order. Son of a monkey butt, they had questionable test results last WEDNESDAY and they are just talking about it now? And, I didn't get a call on the reverse 911 until 4:30 yesterday afternoon? Oy!

So, top of my list is get paper plates and cups and utensils, I'm not washing my dishes in that.

I'll have M shower at my mom's today. I may just go to work in jeans and a t-shirt, since I'm unsure of how much my boss will be in this week.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Oh, peeps in town are NOT happy! There are loads of comments on the newspaper article about people who still haven't gotten the reverse 911 call. I happen to have a school aged child, so they have all my numbers (they called both my cell and my home phone), but seriously, if the first test came back on Thursday, why weren't we told that day? They are putting up "signs". Um, hello, where? I haven't seen one, I heard about it from the waiter at TGIFridays when we went for lunch yesterday. The WAITER TOLD ME! I'm peeved and now Morgan has a rash and her eye was all puffy again yesterday. I don't see a bug bite there, so who knows what it could be?

I know how that goes. I go away for the weekend and then pay ALL NIGHT LONG. I think I got a hours sleep if that since the cat was in full "love me, hug me, hear me meow" form. Next time I go for waterfront festivle hes comming with, other cats be darned.

AlexWyattMommy
08-10-2009, 08:37 AM
Dang MM2000 - I would be fuming too. That is the only positive about having the washing water hauled in. We only cook with and drink bottled water. Not knowing when the cistern is going to be empty stinks, but knowing it is coming fresh from being treated or it's not coming is a good thing. The plant is not allowed to dispense untreated or iffy water.

Hmm, guess I'm the only dissenter Rebecca. I would feel obligated to attend. But not in a put upon way. Just a "I need to clear my schedule and go because the Pastor's Wife does a lot and the least I can do is go." I would enjoy the tea though more so than say a pot-luck dinner. There is just something about having "a tea" that is appealing.

SIOH - hope little guy is feeling better. Is it illness or are his molars coming in? Not pleasant for youngest, but didn't even notice with eldest.

DIT - ignore the kitties again. The more you fuss, the more they feel they are right. Kinda like kids that way. :rotfl2: Good thing is they do forget why they are being snotty and stop - eventually. :cat:

FB - the doll house sounds like more fun than swish and swipe. :rotfl:

Holly - How many motorcycles? Which cart are you using?

Tinker and Nan - ENJOY YOUR DAY!!!

Rebecca

I wouldn't feel obligated just because it was the pastor's wife. I would treat it the same as any other invite. ETA: I think it sounds wonderful, but I wouldn't feel that I had to clear my calendar. Hope that makes sense!

This is my first time posting, but here's my list for today:

Laundry
Clean up the kitchen (DH worked on tomatoes over the weekend)
Run the sweeper in all of the downstairs
General pick up around the house
Clean the downstairs bathroom
Take the boys swimming if the weather cooperates
Fix a decent dinner and take some to DH (works 24-hour shift)

We only drink bottled water, but we bathe, do our laundry, brush our teeth, cook, and wash dishes with town water. I'm not happy, but there's very little (to nothing) I can do about it. Morgan is going to the lake with my mom today (she lives in a different town), and will shower after that. I have NO idea how I'll wash my dishes tonight. I don't think I can deal with the boiling and waiting for it to cool. All the Dunkin Donuts in town are closed (6 or 7? Some ridiculous number of stores), I doubt the other restaurants will close, they can sell bottled water and drinks, and they would boil any water they were cooking with anyhow. It's just not right. They should have told us last week!

PrincessNancy96
08-10-2009, 09:52 AM
Wow! That is awful... I can't believe they don't have everyone in town notified.. Whatever happened to utilizing the local media, news? I know you may not have a newstation in town..but I'm sure most people watch the news on some channel... We've seen boil orders for places 5 counties away on our local news. As for a reverse 911.. I don't even know if we have it.. guess I should look into that..

Rebecca ~ I would not feel obligated to attend the tea. I think this is something very nice and respectful for you to do. Good luck with what you decide.

Everyone fell back asleep this am so we are just now up and movin'...so it's time to really get movin'...

My desired list for the day is to work on the Resort swap.

I think my actual list for the day is probably going to be

Panic
Putz over swap stuff
Panic
Sign some papers
Hopefully go bouncing off the walls!
Calm down enough to work on swap stuff

So why will I be an emotional basket case? We might have a house! We don't have an officially signed contract yet, we are waiting for their official counter though. It got too late to finalize on paper last night, and we have a few questions for our mortgage broker about making sure we have the proper language in the contract. But we have a verbal agreement, and it was never a problem with money, just details about the closing.

They only put the house on the market on Saturday, we were probably the first people to look at it on Sat morning. They are planning on moving into a new home but haven't found one yet, so I think they are a little startled they will sell so fast. But it works better for them, and for us, honestly, to not have closing until mid-Oct. But that complicates the contract since it's so far out and everybody wants to make sure it doesn't fall apart Oct 1st.

It's a 1872 sq ft/1685 sq ft finished, ranch style house which sits on .4 acres in a Denver suburb we love. 4/2 with a finished basement family room and office. I will have TWO craft spaces! One to store all the crap, and one to work on stuff where DH and I can be together with the big screen. And it really needs no immediate work, except paint, just because I can. I took some pictures, if people would like to see http://s177.photobucket.com/albums/w234/hopemax/Kendall%20House/

House hunting has been an adventure. DH and I made our list of wants and don't wants in a new house. DH's "don't want" was a big yard, my "want" was a larger kitchen, with good cabinet and counter space. This house has a tiny postage stamp of a kitchen and the previously mentioned .4 acres! So DH and I are laughing at each other, but when we walk outside, we knew that is what we wanted. DH is already planning on getting 3 disc golf baskets and setting up a mini course. And I have a plan on how we can add onto this house, long term. This is actually the 3rd house we attempted to purchase. The first, due to poor communication, we didn't get our offer in before it went under contract. The second, was rejected. The house actually had a potentially MAJOR foundation issue, they had 2 offers. Ours was lower, but only about 5% off the list price + closing costs. They rejected us flat out, tried to negotiate with the "better" offer, and never reached an agreement. Called our realtor back, and said if we wanted it we would have to seriously up our offer. So now that house has no offers and still a potentially major foundation issue. And then this one.

And to answer Rebecca's question, if the group of ladies is as involved in the church as it sounds, I think they would be honored to attend, and grateful for the recognition.

that's wonderful news Hope! Congrats to you and your dh! it's a very exciting time. best wishes for both of you!!

AWM- 30 motorcycles. and it's on the going places cart. i'm just cutting them out all in one color. silver. she's (my niece) is going to write the info on the back. i'm thinkin' i might go find some fabric and cut one out to put on a shirt for him to wear that day??
has anyone done that yet? and if so does it cut out nice?what kind of settings should i use?? i know fairie made me one in the first secret sister swap. i often wonder what happened to her. :confused3

I had to google it. Breezy Acres is in Douglas, not too far from me. Morgan has been there with my sister, and I think I went there once with an ex-BF. She went to Lake Winthrop with my mom and nephew. I'm kind of shocked, my mom doesn't do heat. I'm sure she'll be pissy this afternoon (my mom, Morgan will be fine).

Hope, love the looks of the house! I'll keep my fingers crossed for a smooth closing!

Yes, definitely in panic mode.

We had done some haggling last night about the appliances. We thought we had an agreement. Now, I guess another offer came in, and now they are haggling about keeping the appliances again. So we said, fine, they can keep them...but I'm really worried that it is all going to fall apart. :sad2: :headache:

08-10-2009, 01:23 PM
Aw Hope, I hope it all works out for you! How nerve wracking.

Can I whine here? (If not, someone tell me, and I'll take it down).

DH called, he stopped to pay the boys tuition for school and found out it's $100 a month/$1000 per year more than we had thought. Great. We could send them to public school, but I really don't want to. The schools here are some of the lowest rated in the state (that's from a few years ago, doubt it's gotten much better), and they have so many kids in the classes. I'm afraid my youngest is going to have a harder time, and I want him where he can get the extra help if he needs it.

It will work out, but it was news we didn't really need. The last three years, we've paid DS8's tuition in full at the beginning of the year and gotten a slight discount; the big thing was, it was taken care of for the year. This year, we knew it hadn't worked out that way for various reasons, but we thought we had almost enough to pay one in full and get that discount, then we were going to make the monthly payment on DS2 (his is cheaper). Guess not!

And, it's getting ready to storm, so I guess we aren't going to the pool.

Whine away. That is what we are here for.

Sorry about the extra $100 a month. That totally stinks. But if your public schools are not good, that extra money will be worth so much more than just the $$ out of your account.

Definitely being jerked around now. We just agreed to go to our highest and best offer, and if it doesn't happen, we were never in the game. If we do get the house, then in the long run it will be just a bump in the road. But so much for this being a buyer's market.

Inspection, we have through the end of next week. And yeah, now I'm worried about that. Yesterday, I felt like they were being reasonable in protecting their interests, now I feel like we're the small animal being poked to see if we'll dance. Are we going to have to go through this again, during the inspection resolution?

I'm in Massachusetts. It's absolutely shameful the way this has been handled. They are handing out bottled water today at the high school (it started at 2:00). Um, I work all day, how am I going to get to the high school to pick up bottled water at 2:00? Will there be any when I get out of work? Apparently, the water company will reimburse me if I buy my own, but for how much? There is NO INFORMATION on any of the town/water company websites. Why haven't they posted a FAQ? Seriously, it's a big cluster *&^#. The water company is actually on my street, getting home tonight should be a complete nightmare (as it is, the traffic on my street is a mess anyhow, this'll just make it worse!).

I need to stop and buy paper plates and cups (we have utensils), I'm NOT washing my dishes in that water, boiled or not. Who knows how long this will take to get clean?

I stopped by the HS on my way home, DH thought I would be there for hours, but within 5 minutes I had 2 24-packs of Poland Spring water. I was only supposed to get 1, but I talked them into a second. (One gallon per person in the house). I could drink one a day myself. DH is doing the dishes! :scared1: He's boiled some water and is washing and rinsing them, I did pick up paper plates and hot/cold cups to use. It's supposedly safe to shower and do laundry, but we'll see. I don't work tomorrow, so I can go a day without one, if I have to ;)

Morgan's got a strange rash on her face. I need to call the doctor tomorrow and see about getting her to an allergist. Not sure when they'll be able to see her, but she can't live all summer strung out on benadryl. I'm 99% sure it's from sunscreen, but who knows?

I am so excited now! I have my scrap room all planned out. I am going to do an Alice in Wonderland themed room, because I collect Alice Disney stuff. I'm going to paint the walls yellow with white trim. White shelving and white desk, and purple and teal for accents. I found a great shelving system in Crate & Barrel's kid stuff. http://www.landofnod.com/family.aspx?c=74&f=4259&pc=16 It has adjustable shelves and is 15" deep so it should be able to hold 12x12 paper holders just fine. So I am going to have 2 rows of scrap stuff, and one row of collectible stuff, and in the bottom I will put my Cheshire Cat plushes.

Question: I would really like to have a ladies Christmas tea for the ladies from the church- I have 24 place settings so I should have enough china (Amy said I could borrow hers if I needed another 12)- I don't want people to feel like they have to come because I am the pastor's wife- I more want to say thank you for everything they are doing. Would you feel obligated to come to something like this if the invitation came from the pastor's wife?

Mom and I love doing tea, in fact we are going to the GF when we are down there for SDV for tea. We would love to be invited to your tea. Wanna try out some tea sandwich recipes on us in two weeks? :goodvibes

and TB i was up you could have called me!

I was up too. We should have done a DIS chat.

Vacuum Car - got grass in it! :scared1: :scared1::scared1::scared1::scared1:

Who is mucking stalls?! :lmao:

Hope, how exciting about the house. Congratulations!

Late to the party but here is my list:

Get DD up and ready for camp.
Drive DD the hour down to camp
Grab breakfast at Dunkin Donuts and throw it at DD (lovingly of course :hug: )
Work
Not stress out over the new budget procedures being implemented with only six weeks of the fiscal left.:eek:
Stop at store for shampoo, contact stuff, etc
Cook dinner
Play lifeguard to DN and her cousin in the pool.

Congrats Hope! How exciting...

A Dis Chat would have been nice, I didn't get to sleep until about 3 am. I am a tad on the grumpy side - but my sister and neices should be here in about a half hour so that keeps me smiling! Yippee...

Jennifer - what a royal pain in the a$$ having to deal with the whole water issue. Oh - and I secound what Holly said about the sunscreen, my ds can't use certain brands - water babies was one of them - totally broke out in a rash...
