Can I join? :)

I'm not as interesting as some of you.... but I'll try! :p

To do:
-Wake up at reasonable time (trying to get in the habit of getting up at 7 am... good luck to me)I ended up getting up at 8.... not too bad.
- Daily ritual of checking playing Mafia Wars on Facebook (my guilty pleasure) while waiting for the Dis to take forever to load.
-Alternate between swap stuff and working on my room - I want to try out an svg file that MM2000 sent me for Toppers n' Tags.It's in toppers and tags now, MM!
- Eat dinner at 3:30... ugh, so early.No fridge, so I had easy mac for late lunch and will eat late dinner when I get home from work.
-Go to work at 5. Hopefully will not have a mouse problem tonight like we did last night. Or a guy who tries to seduce his way out of paying a 10$ fine.... yeesh. Didn't work, I might add.

Not to mention: Freak out all day because there are only 2 weeks left until Disney. :woohoo:


See? The life of a teenager is a boring thing...

It's Tuesday! Yay for "not-Monday"!! I start schedule changes today--we are on a WAY different schedule at school this year, so my day will mostly be spent explaining why I CAN'T change someone's schedule.

Y'all, please send prayers & pixie dust to my co-worker today. She is the one who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and she's having surgery today.

Deb--wow! Glad it's not me on that trip! :rotfl2:
Nan--Is "Oh Happy Day" playing in your mind today?? ;) Tell the kiddos to have a WONDERFUL first day of school!
ZTH--not at all boring. . .and the story about the guy and the $10 is priceless! Can I just mention that every time I see your posts, I get that song in my head?? Love it!! I love that movie and everything about it!

All righty. . .here we go:

1. Up--got back into the walking last night, and I'm feeling it today!
2. Caffeinate
3. Write a couple of thank-you notes
4. Get stuff together for work
5. DS up
6. Drop DS off at mom's
7. Take different food
8. Work--yesterday was a good day! Trying to make today that, too!
9. Pick up DS
10. Renew medicine at Walmart
11. Start other cards
12. Finish thank you cards
13. FOLD LAUNDRY!!!
14. Wash laundry--2 loads
15. Walk with DS while DH mows
16. Frozen meal for dinner
17. Watch "Cake Boss" from last night!
18. Make packing list for cabin this weekend

Everyone have an awesome Tuesday!!

Hi Holly!! We posted at the same time! DS is feeling better--thanks for asking! He still is eating a little less than normal, and his rash flares if he gets hot, but he's MUCH better! The dr said it would take 7-10 days for the rash to completely go away. It really makes you count your blessings when they're feeling well!!!

What days will you all be at Disney- will you be overlaping with SDV and be able to stop by and see us? August 27/28 is when we all get there for the weekend.

It's Tuesday! Yay, no work for me today! Morgan just got up, her rash looks a bit better, but the eye is making me nervous. I've got to call the doctor and see if I can get her into an allergist. I'm pretty sure it was sunscreen, but who knows?

Today:
Morgan for a hair cut, she's donating to Locks of Love again.
Morgan and I for a mani/pedi she deserves it for her selfless donation of her hair, I just deserve it.
I have to renew my license. Bah, my hair is soooooo gray and my glasses are broken, should be a GREAT picture for five years! I did order glasses yesterday, but they won't be in until Thursday, and I won't pick them up until Friday and my license expires on Monday, so it's either today or Thursday to renew. I hate doing it!
Work on swaps so I can get some stuff mailed! Oh, I need to check on my order from Scrap Your Trip.
Still on a boil order for the water...Not a happy camper!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Not boring at all!!! If you want, I'll trade you days... you just have to come on a hectic day to realize the life of a teenager is to be enjoyed because adulthood/having a family sometimes isn't all the fun it looks like, especially in the movies!! LOL

The kids are all off to school; the quiet has begun and it's nice so far.. talk to me again in an hour! I'm going to start working on my 365 project and get it caught up before noon today... I'll only be behind the month of August... the first week of August we just hung around town...so I need to do a week about town...
today's photo is the kids are ready for school!
My bigger kids got the cool bus driver ~ she's a peach! My little one got the jerk... but he tends to do better w/ the younger kids than the older ones...so here is hoping it will go okay.. if not, he knows I'll be on the bus making my concerns known if for even a minute my son tells me something that does seem right... I've gotten on this driver before w/ my others... (although DsS15got in so much trouble last year that he had to sit in the front of the bus & his mom had to sign a note stating she understand the reason for punishment and such!)

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome... it's nice to be here. :)

Rebecca - Yes, I will be there during SDV! I would love to stop by, and I'm going to tryyyyy to convince my boyfriend to let me go for a bit, but we'll see if that works out. I might literally just have to stop by, run around the table(s) saying hi to everyone while he glowers at me.... although when I took him to a scrapbooking yard sale at our LSS, he said it wasn't as bad as he thought. If I do get to go, it would be on Friday around 6ish, while we go from the Animal Kingdom to Epcot for dinner. Would you guys be around then, do you know the schedule?

SIOH - Pixie dust to your coworker... I hope she has a speedy recovery.
MM2000- I saw the news last night on TV, that's awful about the water.


So a slight switch to my schedule... when I got up, I had to help move my mini-fridge (which I had actually just unplugged and defrosted to save energy while I'm gone) downstairs because our fridge died last night... so now we're going shopping for a new one. My mom (PBF) is happy about that, I guess, because she's wanted a new one.

You'll probably see me a lot more in these threads since I foresee having a list of things to do from now until who knows when...Yay! for house projects. I'm sure I'll be tired of dealing with house issues at some point.

Work on swaps, for real today.
Print house contract documents
Write dates on calendar
Verify with DH that he has talked with mortgage broker, and everything is :thumbsup2
Take care of DH, he is home sick. Besides the house stuff, he just completed a MAJOR project at work last Thursday. I think it has all caught up with him.

See if DH wants to deal with Bank of America today or not.

This is annoying, we have had a BoA account for forever. But it is a Washington based account. When we moved to CO, we had to open a Wells Fargo account because BoA doesn't have branches in CO, only ATMs. Our savings is mostly in the BoA account, but now we want to transfer the down payment to our Wells Fargo account since it should be easier to get too, when we need to do the closing. We expected it would be just a simple wire transfer, but every time DH calls, they tell him something different. The first thing they say is "go to a branch location." Last, they told him to sign up for some program, but then when he went online to check it out, it said not available for accounts based in WA or ID. The first thing he tells them is that he lives in CO where there are no branches, the second thing is the account is a WA based account. Come on people, do your job!

Hey ASH!!! You have got to get that house done... you are falling way behind here girlfriend!!!

So far the house is nice!! Chores are done.. I had to make a run to town for ink as 3 teachers have sent their papers via email to be printed and filled out @ home thus saving school printing $$.. LOL No big deal, I just hadn't bought ink yet, too lazy.. so now I have fresh ink so I'll do some journalling on the printer today too!

Hope you headache goes away shortly too.... when does baby girl start school? Is she ready? Still nervous? How are the kids settling into the new house?

I know, the motivation is to get these boxes out of my house so I can spend time with friends! :rolleyes1 DD starts on the 24th. She's been so busy with horse camp last week (1st place in jumping!!) and a water camp this week that I don't think she's had time to process anything. I say little (ok, big) prayers everyday for her teacher and friends! Next week she'll be home resting and getting ready, so I'll let you know then how she's feeling. Little man has settled in nicely- I got his room completely put together yesterday (the first one that is complete) and he was a happy camper. The rest of the house is 85% done.... who knew we had so much stuff??!!!

Thanks, Nan! She makes friends really easily and gets along with just about anyone, so that is a huge comfort to me. Still can't help but worry... it's my job.

Yay for DS8! It's always nice when the kids really love their teacher. It just makes the whole school year easier.

It's 11:45am here...where the hell has this day gone? It's flying..this was supposed to be a slow day so I could enjoy... I'm sure the kids are in a whirlwind as it is... info here, info there, expectations for this/that the other... locker combos...
Our kids' cell phones were ringing at 11pm last night... kids panicking about buses, lockers... my kids are the cool cucumbers I guess... I could hear them reassuring others.. I couldn't help but laugh.. my is a basket case and you all are just goin' w/ the flow!

Morgan and I are back. We went to the registry to get my license renewed, you should have seen the line at 8:45! Holy moly! Thankfully we were out of there around 9:20. Then we went off to Starbucks for iced tea and juice (out of town, we can drink their water ;) ), and made an appt at the nail salon for 11:00. Off to the hair dresser, where she had 10-11 inches cut off. She looks so much older now! I'm so sad, my little baby bunny is a big girl :(

Then we went and had our toes done. She got her nails done too, I don't bother to pay for manicures anymore, they don't last anywhere near long enough to justify the cost (only for special occasions). Got lunch, again, see different town reference), and we are home! She called DH, he's not going to be happy when he sees how short her hair is, but it's hers and her decision. It will make getting ready sooooooooooooooooo much easier!

Nan, it's nearly 1:00, have you gotten any scrapping done?

Z2H, new fridge! Yay, new fridge! I need a new fridge. Actually, I need a new kitchen, but I'd start with a new fridge.

Rhonda, so glad your family made it safely, have a great great visit!

OK kinda jealous - usually our kids would start this week - and we are usually cursing the district saying its too early - VIOLA! District takes 2 vacations off the schedule and our kids don't start until after Labor Day - :scared1:
Kinda wishing they were starting this week!:rotfl:

ZTH - Welcome - I am the late posting West Coast Member of the group - who also spends time playing mafia wars on FB-;)

Ashley - Yay! Keep unpacking!

Tinkerbean - enjoy those cuties and your sister too!;)

Today -

Coffee!!
Laundry
Keep DD focused on pig chores
DD to unload dishwasher
vacuum
Finish donation itemization (that word doesn't look right) for taxes
Need to get ink to print 4H forms....maybe a run to target/Office depot
Girls to The Little Gym at 5 pm
Girls to Kids Park - drop off babysitting franchise - I have no babysitters here!
Rodney Atkins concert tonight - should be fun - if DD2 stays at Kids Park.:cutie:

I have some phone calls to make also - better get cracking around here!

Everyone have a great Tuesday!!

This is the second time she's done it. She had it cut (over a foot) last June after her dance recital and it was still to her shoulders. This time it's about chin length and she really looks adorable (if I do say so myself :) ).

I think I'm going to work on swaps, she's watching Ella Enchanted upstairs. It looks like it may rain here (just a passing shower), so I have an excuse to stay indoors (I hate the heat!).

DD to ortho

DH is doing this for me so I can continue to work uninterrupted! :cool1: He is going to take her to get lunch too, which I am glad she will have some Daddy time.

Morgansmom- sounds like y'all had a great time!:thumbsup2 I think our girls are the same age, so I know how you feel about them getting older! My DD is going to be taller than me in no time and I'm 5'6". I'm not ready for her to start 4th grade.

Wow!!! I finished 10 pages in my 365 book and am caught up to this week.. those photos are currently on my camera but the pages are ready to go!!! Got the journalling typed up for yesterday too!!!
I have my list of elements to cut to finish off the completed pages but I'm counting them as complete now!!! (but I did NOT count this weeks as they are on the camera!).

I have 15 kitted pages I hope to work on tomorrow.. I want to upload and order photos from winkflash on Friday.

I have 4-H photos and mini-4H photos for PJ that I need to do this week/next week too!

They have started the jack hammer going again down the road.. haven't figured out what they are working on either... I think it's the gas lines..but we don't have gas at our home.. we are all electric.... (which is much, much cheaper around here!!)

Morgan turned 9 in July, she's also going into 4th grade. She's 9 going on 20 though. The attitude... ;)

I'm 5'6" too, I hope she's taller than me, I always thought another two inches and I'd be able to carry my "weight" better ;)

DD turned 9 in March, so they are pretty close. I hear ya on the attitude... geez, so moody! I always thought I was closer to 5'6 1/2"... ;) DD is already to my chin- she grew at least an inch if not more this summer. This child has be growing like crazy since she was 2. Now poor DS is a little guy. He's 4 and just now grew out of his 2T clothes.

Your DS reminds me so much of my DS13... My DS13 is a little guy...but the kids never give him grief...his good friends rib him about it...but no others... and he never gives up even when others doubt his ability.. Just ask the dumb B**** that sit him out his 6th grade travel season (saw very little time)... his teammates never let him down...they went to state and instead of taking the win for themselves...they told my DS it was more for him.... last year my DS played both A&B basketball... in one game w/ dumb B..there... he scored 18 points in a game.. of which 15 points were from 3 point shots! She has been eating crow for a year...and to this day she asks my DH if I'll ever talk to her again..and DH said if you see pigs flying than maybe ya got a chance.... (I do hold a grudge when it's warranted!)

Awww, Nan! That breaks my heart! Good for your DS though- way to perservere! I hope that DS is like that. My brother was short until after high school and he couldn't stand that his little sister (me) was normal in height. I'm wondering when DD will stop- I thought she had slowed down until she grew so much this summer. And could someone stop her feet???

See, apart from my dad, I'm the tallest in my family at 5'5. But my little sister (11, 12 next week) is going to be taller than me probably next year.... and then keep going. We're guessing 5'10 at least when she's done. I'm considering forcing her to drink coffee to stop her.... :lmao:

DD turned 9 in March, so they are pretty close. I hear ya on the attitude... geez, so moody! I always thought I was closer to 5'6 1/2"... ;) DD is already to my chin- she grew at least an inch if not more this summer. This child has be growing like crazy since she was 2. Now poor DS is a little guy. He's 4 and just now grew out of his 2T clothes.

If we make it through the "tween" years alive, I'll be shocked, forget about the teens...Moody doesn't begin to describe it! I swear she's grown a couple inches this summer!

As long as her feet keep growing; so will she... my DD wears a size 7... she is 5'3" now... she has me... my 2 little boys are shorter than me... DS13... will grow.. I foresee him being like my brother.. he grew finally in high school and is over 6'2" now.... I think some of it is because he is such a picky eater, or at least that is the excuse I give him.. you eat = you grow! He put 2 ears of corn on the cob away Sunday... he never ate corn til a year ago and I paid him 10.00 to eat a spoonful and he loved it.. He no longer gets paid..but it was money well spent! LOL

Ok, first kid is home..love the day.. he has lots of friends in his class...
my DsS18 called already, he got out of school early b/c his college prep classes don't start til next week. He asked to come over and discuss things w/ us tonight... and he had to leave for a college prep mtg. during first period so he needs to get the homework assignment from his sister! LOL Yes, my Senior and my Sophomore are taking theater arts together! This should be fun... DsS was trying to check our schedules due to practices and such.. He said he also need us to review a college ap to send out...
I'm anxious of my DD to get home and my DS13... to see how their days were.. I'm sure neither myself or my DH will hear from DsS15, aka Mr. Tude!
Anyway, I just about fell over when DsS18 called as he talked to me for 30 minutes! He never calls to chat... He evidently wants to make sure we know what is going on since we told him that we either stay informed or the financial assistance for college goes "bye, bye, bye"...

DD's wearing a size 4 in kids shoes, which is a size 6 womens...pretty soon she'll be stealing my shoes- I'm a 7.5.

That's too funny that you paid him $10 to try the corn, Nan! My mom did that to me once. Except it was $5 to eat a cherry tomato and it didn't work because I still don't like tomatoes. Lol. I'm glad the kiddos (so far) have had a good day!

DH emailed and said the orthodontist went well. They are just tracking her mouth and have been for several years now. She still has to lose 11 teeth, so we've got some time.

DS13 is home.. over 20 minutes late..said 1/2 of the bus didn't report to school at the end of the day for the older kids...they were 15 minutes late... than had to transition to the HS and get those kids that were eager to get out... He said lunch was a fiasco b/c they have changed things up but weren't paying attention and at 20 minutes into the 30 minute lunch 1/2 of the students had not eaten yet.. WHAT? ARE YOU SERIOUS.. If that continues tomorrow, I will have to go to school and show them how to do it correctly! It's not that hard! Otherwise, he had a good day..was constantly asked which sibling he was most like... his brother last year was always in trouble.. his two older siblings (PJ and DsS18) were the good, shy, quiet ones like DS13.. They were all relieved that he is more like the older two! Yeah, me too!
Well, now it's thundering... my HS athletes are at practices... LOL they'll all be practicing inside shortly... boy I sure hope that DS8's football practice gets canceled! LOL

OH, meant to say.. I hear ya about the orthodontia.. DS13 has 4 more teeth to lose..and I can only imagine what his costs are going to be...he has a teeny tiny mouth like me.. however, I have my wisdom teeth in and they don't bother me.. I didn't even feel them come in..so I didn't think they ever did... I was shocked to find out I had them!

Man, sounds like chaos at DS13's school Nan! Good grief! Can you imagine not getting more than 10 minutes to scarf down your food?

I am hoping that DS won't have to have braces. DH's sister didn't - she's got perfectly straight teeth. The dentist said that DS might not have to have them. His teeth are perfectly spaced with equal amounts of space between each tooth. Here's hopin'! Because DD's will cost a pretty penny, she has no room at all.
