9. Cards to work
10. Work--gotta get lots done today!!
11. Pick up DS
12. Play with DS when we get home!! Best part of the day!
13. Walk with DS while DH mows
14. Write last 5 thank you notes
15. Fold laundry
16. Run other 3 loads of laundry--load #3 going now!
17. Lean Cuisine meal for dinner--nope, was bad. . .ordered pizza, but only ate 2 slices!

morning!

well i still have my pain. and it's not getting better. the dr said that if it was shingles the rash would have appeared by now. :confused3 so he does not think it's that?? ok. so what is it??

dh is on vacation because bubba is done with camp and there is still 2 more weeks until school starts. so he's off this week and i'm off next week. and that stinks that we are on separate vacations....but what else can i do??
i did take today off. and hoping to take wed and fri too?? maybe;)

we (or dh) did a clean sweep of ds bedroom yesterday. :scared1:what a task that was. i supervised!:goodvibes i did however do his clothes. holy cow did he have a ton that did not fit in those drawers. and shoes. wowzer. tons that he had outgrown. very little pants fit. the waist is good, but the length is way too short! my bubba is getting so big. i have got to get him new school clothes this week. my mother would be telling me off right now, that i have not done it yet. sorry mom!:angel:

so my list for today is to enjoy my boys.
maybe go out for breakfast?
get bubba some pants for school
post office. mail and pick up. -this is getting old! i want my mail delivery back!
laundry

ok that's about it for me.
have a great day everyone!

I have to work today...Hope that I can leave a little early. I would have taken today off, but my boss has a big meeting this afternoon and he was out all last week.

We'll probably go out for dinner. Boil water order is still in effect and it's my birthday, so I don't want to deal with dishes!

Went to Mike's last night and bought myself some fun fun stuff, hey, I had a 25% off everything coupon, how could I not?!

Morgan starts school in 2 weeks too. She has no supplies, no new clothes, nothing...I'm a slacker mom! We'll get some shopping done this week.

Hope everyone has a good day. Holly, I hope they figure out what's up with you, have a great day with your boys!

where do you think you will do dinner?

I got it by email. If you sign up for "The Knack" on their webpage, they send you all kinds of fun coupons! I didn't get anything too great, some clearance stuff, oh, the MM Tag Curler doo-hickey, it was $7.50 after the coupon, and all the tags were about $2.25. I thought that was a good deal...

I'm leaning toward either seafood or Bugaboo Creek. Not sure what I'll be in the mood for by then. Either way, I'm not washing dishes!

House inspection was this morning. According to the inspector, "We have a gem of a house." :banana: There are a few minor things he pointed out to us, but confirmed what we had suspected that the current owners did a really nice job on maintenance. This afternoon, we sign our rate lock for the mortgage, and then basically it's just hurry up and wait.

The good news and the bad news...now, I have to pack!

Well my day didn't go as planned- I forgot we had a meeting with a financial planner- we are trying to decide what to do with our retirment accounts. We got to that on time and then ended up going out for lunch and stopped by a local store and found out they were having a going out of business sale. That took longer than expected.

Then i arrived home and had to call about our missing rent check as well as finding out about the hold on my brother's college registration- got those cleared up and mom called about a book proposal we are working on so nothing got done today.

ooooh we love breakfast for dinner! that's a staple around here!

and i have no clue what it is!??? & neither does anyone else!

i'm waiting for the rash to appear. the chiro said today that it could take up to a month for the rash to appear. so what? i have this pain for a month, then the rash? oh good gravy! i'll never make it!

joyah
08-17-2009, 06:56 PM
Holly
Stress wrecked my body. And the rash that I got from it is just unheard of. I also get a rash from the hay and lucky me it's coming back. The stress of looking for a job......,my kids totally not listening to me (i've turned into a screamin meme)
It's time for the dr's to look elsewhere. Have them run blood work for chrones thyroid iron and anything else they can think of. Unfortunately you have to be VERY pushy when it comes to the healthcare system. Dads knee surgeon just told him he was 1" from meeting his maker with all that we could feesibly have a really big lawsuit in the making.
Anyway back to you. PLEASE tell them that you can NOT take this anymore and they have to find you some answers NOW. I'll see what I can find with some of my medical friends.
