Good Morning!!!!

My list for today:

Take DH to work
Laundry
Sort some more of the color swap (sorting this is taking awhile!)
Do more car research
Go to a couple of dealerships to look at more cars. We test drove a Dodge Charger yesterday. Oooooh, that was a nice car! DS really wants me to get that one, but I'm still looking. And, DH is out of town starting today so he'll go back with me on Saturday to see my favorites. It's hard to go outside the Ford box, though. Every car DH and I have had has been a Ford.
Clean something
Buy birthday present for stepfather
Work on swaps

Have a great day!

I'm up! Not feeling so great. Had a headache last night and woke up with it this morning and now I'm feeling a bit icky. I've taken some Advil and I'm caffeinating, so hopefully, that will help. M has an early eye doctor's appt, if I'm not feeling well after that, I may have to cancel my trip to see Buffy :(

Really my lists look worse than they are...
I pretty much rattle my kids and they take care of the rest... I love it when they are older and can take care of most of their needs... :)

I ordered 500 photos this week... I need to sort and than finish ordering w/ my freebie sets next month... and kit what I can when the 500 come in the mail next week.. I'll start collage making next week for next months order!!! I just ordered another 50 photos today for 365, first day of school, first sports events to scrap by month's end... however, 1 hour says it's going to take 34 hours to print... I guess I'll see if I get an email and send DH to pick them up on the way home; if not I'll pick them up tomorrow evening.. not like I don't have stacks here already! LOL

Ok, off to tackle a few more things and take a nap! Love having the mornings off... I won't be able to nap tomorrow. I have a friend coming over @ 9AM to scrapbook tomorrow morning...

Ash~ We initiated the "meet the teacher" nights here about 4 years ago... the schools have said anxiety levels were dramatically down for the kids when they returned to school. We still have a few w/ meltdowns but it isnt' as bad as it had been when my older ones were little. Hope DD enjoys the new school and likes her teacher.

Had a little sickness bout this morning and felt much much better afterward. I'm 99% sure it's 100% hormonal, but it still sucks.

Morgan and I went to the eye doc, she is nearsighted. Picked out her first pair of glasses! Between the glasses and the foot of hair she's cut off, no one will recognize her! Nah, she's pretty unforgettable. They'll be ready in a couple days. I'm assuming early- to mid-next week. She doesn't start school until the following Tues, so that should give her some time to get used to them.

So, assuming Buffy is still up to it, I'm going to leave right after lunch to meet her at a scrap store about halfway between us. Yay!

PrincessNancy96
08-20-2009, 09:05 AM
Tell her I said "HEY!"... Hope you all have a nice meeting...
Yup, we are all near sighted here too.. Eye Dr. said the little boys have about another year or two and they'll be getting glasses...

morgansmom2000
08-20-2009, 09:10 AM
Nearly my entire family is nearsighted. I'm not surprised, but I was hoping it would be a couple more years. She looks sooooo cute in the glasses! She's got a nice round face, so everything looks pretty cute on her.

I'll say hey to Buffy for you!

joyah
08-20-2009, 09:40 AM
Jennifer glad your feeling better. Morgan would look cute in a sack she's beautiful. I'm hoping the boys escape my crummy eyesite. for me it was 7th grade so Levi has one more year.
Have fun with Buffy say hi for me.

She had it at her old school too. I agree, it's so good for the kids to meet the teacher and see their rooms before the first day. Makes it so much easier, I hope it helps her this year. I'm sure it will. Y'all will definitely hear how it goes!

They were having meet the teacher nights all over town yesterday. I think it's a great idea...sure wish they did it when mine were smaller!

OK, went to the gym after all...not on the list, but I was good http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e147/ddavis860/smiley/Treadmill.gif

Lasagna for dinner...DS21's way too cute DGF is going to do my hair later :teeth:

OMG, I love that treadmill smiley!

I got to meet most of Buffy's cute family! Morgan and Princess Blink were joined at the hip from the moment they met. It was very cute to see (Morgan doesn't get a lot of little girl time, so she loved it). Traffic was horrid on the Pike, but we made it there and back, with a side trip for ice cream and fun goodies at the store. All in all a very successful trip.

BernardandMissBianca
08-20-2009, 05:27 PM
Was the ice cream good? Tell Morgan I said thanks for being PB's buddy. She had a blast. The boys behaved most of the way home.
Had to stop at Lisa's to drop off shirts and then hit the grocery for dinner.

I had fun Jennifer, next time I will not bring the kids though so we can concentrate on shopping!

morgansmom2000
08-20-2009, 05:28 PM
The ice cream was great! Morgan didn't mind at all, she's good with kids (she told me that PB's hand was about the size of her palm, I got all mushy when she said that).

We should see about planning a crop there. It's not far for us Beantown folk, and a really nice store ;)

BernardandMissBianca
08-20-2009, 05:37 PM
Crops on Friday are tough though so I might ask if we could do a small special night or something.

They grow up so fast huh? Tell Morgan she can hang with us any time!

morgansmom2000
08-20-2009, 05:40 PM
Is that the only night? Maybe we could do a Saturday even. (I'm unsure of the store hours).

I'll drop her off sometime and she can hang with you...she'd get a kick out of that ;)

Dinner was good, whole belly clams sitting on the deck by the lake.

Mom loved her goodies, we get to help her with it next week.:lmao: I put her shirts in her gift bag. She thought they looked awesome too. I really do like how the blue one turned out. I was concerned about the blue palette on the blue fabric but there is enough contrast to still make it pop. Nice job, bufferoo.

Will gladly give up stacking wood. :lmao:

BernardandMissBianca
08-20-2009, 09:20 PM
I wasn't sure if I would like the blue either but they turned out super nice.

I think I will tweak the design a bit next year though. DH has given me some good ideas.

Tell DH pellets are the way to go!! We have a pellet store right down the road, Denny goes there to get her pellets.
