:hug: Holly. You can do it. Keep calling that doc and make him give you something.:hug: And, :rotfl2: on the question as to whether I've scrapped any Chicago pictures yet.:rotfl2: No way!!! All I seem to work on are swaps. One of these days I'll get to the Chicago pictures and all the other pictures waiting in the wings! DS went to his leadership conference at the beginning of the week and had a blast. Their hotel was right on the beach so he was happy!

Okay, my day:
Take DH to work so that I can have his truck this weekend while DS uses my car. DH has a conference to attend today and tomorrow.
Laundry
Vacuum
Make sure DS has summer homework finished since school starts back in 10 days
Grocery store

Have DS clean all his junk out of my car. It's so easy for him to take stuff out to the car, but so hard to take it out of the car and bring it back in!:confused3
Work on swaps

Have a great day everyone!

Working today. Probably going to leave a little early because my glasses are in! Yay! I can throw the broken ones away! There is a Ben & Jerry's over near there, and I have a coupon for a free cone, so I'll have a nice afternoon snack too :banana:

Going to meet Dan and Morgan for dinner at Papa Gino's, I think. I'm going to a crop at the hotel near my house from 6-midnight (I'll never make it until midnight!), and then from whenever I get there tomorrow morning to 9 pm. I'm finishing up some swaps and hoping to make a Disney calendar for Dan for his office. I got 5x7s printed of our 2007 trip last year and never got to it...So, that's my plan.

Morgan's eye is fine, Holly, thanks for asking. It appears to have been an allergic reaction to sunscreen. She has gone off to Narragansett Beach today with a friend, I told her to KEEP HER HAT ON, because I don't want to put sunscreen directly on her face, if I can avoid it. I am planning on having her tested though, I worry about the future, she'll need to wear sunscreen!

I'm sorry you're not feeling well, I hope you can get through the half day and have some good rest time later this afternoon!

We rented "I Love You, Man" last night. It was silly. I love Paul Rudd :)

Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!

Nan, if you get a chance, please PM me your mailing addy, I have your envelope ready to mail!

Jennifer, a friend of mine has a DS who is very sensitive to sunscreen, but they are always at the beach so he must wear some. The one they've found which doesn't cause him any problems is Water Babies. It's in a pink bottle and I think it's made by Coppertone. Maybe that will work on Morgan?

I'll have to check it out. She's never had this issue before. She's always been very sensitive to bug bites, and it seems to have worsened, instead of getting better. I have a feeling she's developed some allergies! She is fine with sunscreen on her body, just not on her face...

Ash ~ the garage is NOT your issue... that is DH's.. that's the man cave if ever there was one.. so while it continues to explode just laugh hysterically b/c he needs to take care of it.. (even if you made the mess!).....

Jennifer ~ did you get the email? I sent it this morning!

08-14-2009, 10:07 AM
I did! It's addressed and on the table ready to go out when the mail person comes to work today ;)

08-14-2009, 10:13 AM
Cool!!! Just wanted to make sure the email didn't get eaten in cyber space!!!
I'll let you know when they arrive!!!
I've got my van gassed up for the weekend...for my mission trip to find cardinal...while of course it will be interrupted for stops for my kids' sporting events.... (instead of potty breaks, I have game breaks! LOL)

Mornin'!!!

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Checking email
Coffee in cup!!
Checking in here!!

Nan - that list - keeps me moving!
Ashley - I agree - garage=man's job
MorgansMom - my DD2 seems to have the same sunscreen problem - we have been trying neutrogena - and she hates wearing hats!!
PO3 - I hope your 1/2 day is over by now and the Dr was able to help you out!

Also on the list today:

Pay bills
DD to horse barn - she is going to try riding english for the first time! She wants to show english at our upcoming county fair.
Make a run to goodwill
Pick up moisturizer
Make DLR ressies!:banana:
Reboot laundry
Fold yesterdays load and put it away
DD9 to put her clothes away also

Dinner??? hmmmmm
Write THs

Anybody read the Sookie Stackhouse books?? Dead until Dark is the first one - HBO series "True Blood" is kind of a take off?? Currently running through those books - easy reading. More adult than Twilight - Vamps, Werewolves, ShapeShifters and the heroine is a telepath. Good times. Does not, however, make we want to visit Louisiana which is where the stories are set. :thumbsup2

I know, I know... the garage is the man cave... but what if he doesn't do it right? :rotfl:Or fast enough? I'm ready to park my car in the garage!

PrincessNancy96
08-14-2009, 11:04 AM
Good luck TRM!! :)

Ash~ well, ok, you have a point there.. this weekend, grab a drink, sit out in front of the door facing the garage and tell him how it needs to be done..but don't get up off the chair to help because (even though I know he has help w/ unpacking the house) he has been at work not helping! LOL
I tell my DH his job is lush compared to mine! LOL *he sits in a/c and works on a computer..what so hard about that?* LOL

morgansmom2000
08-14-2009, 11:26 AM
I have an appointment for her on August 25th. They want me to bring the sunscreen and we'll talk about the bug bites. I don't know what, if anything, they can do for those, but I want to know my options. She's pretty good about hats, but she'll probably be in the water a lot today and I'm sure her face will get a little color. It'll be okay...

Jennifer- I hope Morgan is good for the day- even outside. Allergies are no fun but better to find out as they start then having a full medical emrgency if you never find out.

Holly- Hope your day is going well and the doctor finally gives you something.

Nancy- good luck with your search

Lisa- You can make it through another week and a half- Disney is on the horizon.

Today:
children's service- done
stuff to Wee Care for tonight- done
stop by commodities and see if everything is going well- done
3 gallons of tea for tonight- done (DH did this)
3 fliers made, printed, and delivered to give out with commodities- done
tables and chairs back to church
work on swaps
package up more kits for SDV
work on collecting supplies for make and takes for SDV
print pictures for Flower and Garden festival pages

Wee Care open house 6-8pm

Jennifer, we only use water babies too. DS8 broke out in a terrible rash at WDW last trip when we used coppertone or something like that. He is allergic to lots of things, especially synthetic fabrics, temporary tattoos, and face paint.

Holly, I hope you feel better today. Try to rest when you can so you don't get even more sick! And yes I'm getting excited but frustrated with making sure I have everything done, getting the house clean, potty training (guess who decided to wear panties today?!), etc etc etc....

Deb, come balance my checkbook!! I haven't done it in about 3 months. For shame, I know! And work out for me too, I have zero motivation!!! Although there is a girl on 2peas who did that medifast meal plan, dropped 100 pounds since January! I'd love to do that, I don't need to lose 100 but wow, the quickness is more my speed.

Brooke, enjoy the cabin!

Christy, hope dad has fun with his friend.

Nan, :faint: nuf said!

Steph, I have 6 loads of laundry waiting for you! :rotfl2:

YAY Z2H!!!! I saw 8 am but chose to ignore it, I got up at 11, but I have a good excuse. A migraine took me out at 11pm last night and at 7,8, 9, and 10am it was still lingering. However it is starting to come back. ERGH!

Lisa, :hug: I'm home most of today and all of tomorrow if you need a break.

HEY TB!!! Long time no see! How are you feeling?

Hi ASH!!!!!! Ignore the Garage, that's DH's job!

Hey Rebecca, we are almost to single digits!!! I'm soooo excited! When are you coming in?

OK, I think that's everyone. New post for my list! LOL

I am coming in on Friday- we didn't get the hotel until then. I suspect I will be there and checked in by 9am when I can get into the crop room. I just have to get up by 6 to do that and I do almost daily. When do you start cropping?

What color did you want the baby words in?

Ack, completely forgot about the baby words! LOL ETA: I think I'm going to do 8x8.

Any shade of pinks and white would be fine, let me know how much I owe you. Or if there is something at SDV you want, let me know.

We start scrapping Friday morning too. Lisa gets to FL on Tues but is staying overnight off site, then I arrive on Wed and we are staying at the Poly one night. Then switching over to CR on Thursday.

We should be in the crop room by the time you get there.

I used a basic pink for the words and a pink with various shades of pink and purple dots for the backgrounds. Both were in value packs that I got from Big Lots at different times. I think it might be 10-15 cents in paper. I will happily give it to you.
