Holly keep after them if they continue to be jerks report them to the BBB and housing athorouties (sometimes the state level is helpful and sometimes not)
Keep after the DR to they HAVE to help you can also tell them you want the names of their uppers cause they can't seem to figure out the problem so it's time for you to move on that usually scares them into action.

Nancy nice short list scared me your's usually reminds me of something I have to get done I've forgotten about.

It's open house day at the school. We're going to go over and get Morgan's glasses before that. I called Tuesday and they had come in on Saturday, but with the wrong lenses? Uh, hello? Anyhow, I want her to have them as soon as possible, she needs to start getting used to them.

We were going to have a friend over, but her dad has today off and they have something planned for the end of summer. I may try to take M to a movie...Unless PO3 is available for lunch and gabbing. M has a (hopefully quick) follow-up with the allergist. If there aren't any reactions, I'm going to cancel her follow-up for Friday. Really no need to go if she's not reacting to anything (and pay yet another co-pay).

They are also having an ice cream social tonight, so we'll go back to the school after that.

Hope everyone has a good day!

i wish we lived closer too! but this is rare for me to be able to do this, because i work full time. it's only 'cause i'm on vacation that i can do lunch in the middle of the week. once school starts i have to go back to my normal routine! and that stinks.

we will have to plan a trip up there to hang with you. :goodvibes

I'm sure bubba would love the farm. and sugaring season with knee deep mud is a wonderful time for boys, Morgan will have to come cause if she's going to live here she'll have to get used to all that. Normally it doesn't bother me but I think cause I'm home staring at it is whay it's driving me bonkers.

I love working and being with people, I guess I want the best of both worlds.

I would love to meet up with you both.

Morning Everyone!!

I got to sleep in today and took more of an advantage of it than I thought... I went to bed so early last night, and I think I slept 12hrs! Yesterday I was feeling like I was getting a cold, today I feel better, so maybe that was it... But now I feel like I've lost 3hrs of my day too...sigh...

Anyway, I'm off today :teeth:

Today I have to:

Hem DH's uniform pants...

Repair a blanket (this requires my sewing machine)

Clean off sewing cabinet to get to said machine...

Clean off both desks...

Bills and the dreaded financial talk with my DH :eek:

Take both dogs to the doggie wash

Farmer's Market

Dinner...not sure yet :confused3

today:
clean out car
pack car for SDV
finish figuring out exactly what I need
kit pages for the pictures that just came in while we were gone
dinner- ribs, potatoes, and vegies
I am sure there is more but I can't remember right now

Holly, good luck getting in to see the doc. And, I sure hope and Jennifer can meet up for lunch. I wish I lived close enough to join ya!

We've got a rainy day today. But, it does keep the temps down so the a/c won't run as much!!!

My day:
DS up and to school
Clean up kitchen and run dishwasher
Do scout paperwork
Go pick up DH and take him to lunch!!!!
Since I'll be near there when I go to DH's office, I might as well stop by Michaels and see if there's anything I need!:rotfl:
Work on swaps

Have a great day everyone!

I work part time and I really feel like I have the best of both worlds. I get to go out and have interaction with adults, but I also get to spend a lot of time with my M and our girl scout troop and it allows her to do more stuff than I was ever able to as a kid.

I will be working 3 days this fall (until DH gets back to 40 hours a week), and that will be really nice...Of course, it would be even nicer if it were TWT instead of MWF, but I still get 2 full days to myself ;)

I went to get M's glasses and they're not there and won't be until after 1:00. I'm not happy...they told me "a couple days" and she's starting school on Tuesday. I neeeeed them today! Rezzum frezzum.

We're waiting for DH now. He wants to go to the open house with us? :confused3 It's great, just different for him. He went to work at 6:00 and he'll go back after the open house, but it's surprising that he'd want to go...

Anyhow, I hope we get to go to Panera for lunch!

Morgan dresses like a girl, but she plays like a boy! In Kindergarten they asked her how many brothers she had. She looked at them like they had 3 heads and said, I don't have any brothers or sisters. Technically, but DH is like having a 10-year old boy, so that's where she gets it.

She should see the farm though, to know where her dad and I will be spending our golden years ;)

Jennifer it's a wonderful "golden years" spot. My parents are on the back side of the farm for their years. they have 36 acres in 3 lots only one of which is built on.
She'll need that type of upbringing to be here, when all else fails I'm on the tractor or up to my knees in mud mixed with well it's a farm. :) I also have to help feed the house for the winter so canning and freezing is important.

I'm thinking about home health, I know a few people who have businesses and that seems to be a job that is expanding. I love working with the older population and I was backup respite care for my nana while she lived with mom after her stroke. She is now at Pope nursing home in weymouth ma.

You definately have the best of both worlds that's what I want. :guilty:

morgansmom2000
08-27-2009, 08:50 AM
M's not sure she wants to live on a farm, I'll turn her around though. :)

We went to the open house and her teacher was there! Yay, we got to meet her! She's young and enthusiastic and she seems really nice! I'm relieved, I was worried she'd end up with another old battle ax. Yay! It's going to be a great year, I can tell!

joyah
08-27-2009, 08:56 AM
did you tell her that there is a wonderful dance studio right down the road (about 6 miles). then men do 75% of the the outside work and soon the boys will have each other to help out so hopefully I'll get the seat jobs (tractors). Once you realize the peacefullness it's amazing all the kids want to be at our house on any given weekend it's not unusual for me to have 2-3 extras.

Ok, try again! I went to post, was typing out a long list and then closed the browser. **, it's going to be a long day. DH worked from home for a bit so that has really put me behind anyway.

Jennifer and Holly, have fun today if y'all meet up!
Jennifer, that is great news about M's teacher. We have a super young teacher this year too. My M loves her- they get to take their shoes off in the classroom, which is soooo cool (according to M).

He is reprinting all my photos and gave me a credit to my account!!! I'm so excited that i will be getting my photos... I also told him I shipped the other items back and would like to make sure they get delivered to the rightful owner.. He said he would follow up on the mail and see that they are forwarded to her..

Hopefully he does follow through.

I just won round 1 with the Spec ed dept at the middle school. i swear all the work I did to get him the IEP got me no where. I will fight at least 3 more battles before the end of sept. His re eval is scheduled for april but she wants to start it now well if it took me 2 1/2 months to get the right copy of the 6th grade IEP it's probably a good thing we start now.

OH goodness..the phones are ringing off the hook...
The schools are testing out our new phone system they can make automated calls.... so you'll get a call for delays, early dismissals, etc.. Rumor @ HS is they'll call you every time your kid is tardy for class... that could be 5 calls a day if your child is having a bad day, which will result in even a worse evening for the child when they get home...but anyway, at one point my cell was ringing, my house phone was ringing and it was the same school...guess they didn't want me to miss that test phone call...
I have one more school to get a test from... so if there is a delay, I could get 3 of the 4 schools calling me! LOL I guess we definitely won't be late to school that day!

joyah
08-27-2009, 01:45 PM
thank god I only got 2! what interesting is the middle school which starts earlier says they'll call later:confused3 I'm not even going to try to understand. As it is with cancellations they are the same district so that is only 1 call at 5:50 normally after I'm up dressed and headed downstairs to wake the boys as if the phone ringing already didn't wake them.
Our system never calls cell which bugs me cause DH is often out in the am's plowing and then he'd know not to hurry home for bus duty for a delay (course with me not working............) I'm going to look into that issue.

But I want something a little darker for fall now, ya know? And I do like the blue flowers one... Still thinking about it...

Well that's exactly what it has been- the kids have played non-stop in there. Little man's Thomas pop-up tent and his firetruck pop-up tent were set up for a few days. Legos, batman, you name it. We have a 'play' room- aka my scrap room and the toy room. But the room of the cavern is so much more inviting. The problem is that this room is the first one you see when you walk in the front door- so I've started coming in the garage door. :lmao:

My stamps have out grown the one they were in. that meant I need to admit mom and I bought more. On to the living room tomorrow and I'll regret it cause I have at least 1 extra tomorrow night. Need to figure out dinner this kid is my size and eats 3 times as much as me and he'll be coming from football practice.:scared1:
