I'll get this started this morning since Debbie isn't up yet! What's on your list for today?

My day:
DS up and off to school
Laundry
Put yesterday's shopping away
Find storage spot for extra scout t-shirts
Work on cj's
Clean and vacuum
Doctor's appt (just a 3 month checkup after new prescription)
Wait very impatiently for DS to let me know if he gets a callback from yesterday's auditions.
Work on swaps
Try to stay awake to go pick DH up at the airport at midnight!!!!:scared1: I'm so not a night person. He's coming home from Texas and I can't believe he's getting a flight that late and needs me to come get him. I've warned him to call me before his flight leaves Atlanta to make sure I'm awake!:rotfl:

Have a great day everyone!

I'm working today. DH will be home to get PrincessM off the bus and started on her homework (if she has any). The teacher has started a website and I was on it last night, she said something about 50 minutes of written homework and 20 minutes of reading a night...Oy, DH will have a cow, if he's in charge of homework 2 days a week. :faint:

So, my day so far has been:

Up
Kid up
Kid fed
Kid dressed
Me dressed
Kid on the bus
DIS/Email
Starbucks for a treat (a dear dear friend gave me a GC :) )
Work (DIS/Email all day)
Drive home
Dinner - Risotto (num yummy!)
Dishes
Check over homework
DIS/Email
Think about ideas for baby girl first's album
TV or read
Top Chef? I probably won't be able to stay up for it.

Everyone have a great day!

Rebecca take care of that foot!

I'm hoping that after the weekend relaxing (haha chief food prep and bottle washer) camping and sitting on the beach and 1 day with a lobster cruise I'll be rested. Back to school, off week for meds and high golden rod count is just doing me in. Ocean air should help.

Jennifer that seems like a lot of homework, our town rule is 10 mins for every grade so Eric gets 30 mins levi could have and hour but hopefully between the IEP and homework club he gets the bulk of it done, with him everything is a battle cause he likes to play on my emotions.

When I get home:

Dust and Vacuum LR
Dust and Vacuum Kitchen
Mop Kitchen Floor
Dust and Vacuum Hall, up the steps, upstairs hall

Holly have him meet me in portland I've got room for only 1 more on the boat. (honestly) We've got 19 of the 20 the boat can take. My cousin and her group along with my scrappin buddys family are all going. Boys are VERY excited not only for the lobster part but hopefully since we are going by seal rock we'll see some harbor seals. I'm nervous as all get out hoping this will be a great boat cause I know nothing about them. if you do a search for lucky catch cruises it should come up.
Hang in there with the thoughts of your mom, i'm here if you need me.

Deb have a great day off.
Ashley trust me I'm glad it's a slower day I need to relax and wrap my brain around this weekend. I'm already thinking I'm forgetting stuff and I haven't started packing:scared1:

09-02-2009, 10:49 AM
EveryDay Paper Dolls!! I have a raincheck to ACM, and I've called on the days the trucks come in, but it's always "we don't have them". Not their fault, and I completely understand that! However, I called yesterday, and she said, "We didn't get them. You can call back next week, but I don't even know if we'll get them then."

So, I looked at JK Crafts, and they are listing them as in stock there for just a little more than the ACM price!

aroyer
09-02-2009, 10:58 AM
Woohoo! :cool1: I want that one too... and a whole bunch more. I was doing so well earlier this year and the end of last year, there really wasn't a cartridge I wanted. And then they came out with Hannah Montana and now Batman and then all of those other cute ones like Everyday Paper Dolls. Luckily I've been too busy moving and getting DD back in school to shop for them... but now that that's all done...:rolleyes1

Well, DH took DsS15 for his brace today (covered by insurance, thank you very much! Jerks!)...anyway, now DsS is $%%^% b/c the brace is tight.. Well, hello, little one, how do you think it's supposed to fix the fxs if it doesn't hold your body in place... and he can only have it off 1 hour a day.. I sure hope his mom sticks to the plan.. I know we will when he is with us..but we can't drive over every hour for verification... kwim?

joyah
09-02-2009, 02:53 PM
Nancy did the dr give him the bad if he doesn't wear it? usually they will force the issue home about not following the directions. Good luck with that one.
Lobstah is being served in maine i have to wait til sat night WAAAA nothing better than outdoors drippin in butter!!!YUUUUUUMMMMMMYYYYY

Deb glad you had a good time.
Jennifer of course you can go home I said so.

I'm playing with my new Stamps so up my kiddos alley, 4 wheeler snowmobile camper and then a farm set. Forget cleaning I'm going to go play.

09-02-2009, 03:11 PM
The Dr. gave him the info 2 weeks ago...23 hours on.. no ifs/ands/butts.... brace specialist today re-confirmed the 23 hours on/ 1 hour off for showers only... DsS complained and specialist pretty much told him.. you don't do it, kiss your sports good bye!

He'll be wearing it here 23 hours or else.

That is terrific. What is the play?

Holly, what an awesome cake. :thumbsup2 I bet you and Bubba had a wonderful time making the cake. Any leftovers, I am coming for a piece.

MomE has a lung infection which doesn't surprise me. With her asthma and COPD she is suspectable. the moldy moist air in that first room of the Contemporary certainly set her up for it. The dr put her on antibiotics. Hopefully it will clear up soon. Poor Mom, what was supposed to be a break from everything turned into her getting sick.

Thanks everyone for the cheers for DS. I think he's awesome!!! The two plays they are doing auditions for are Noises Off and The Shakespeare Company. There's a lot of actors in Noises Off, but only 3 guys in Shakespear Company but it's looking good that he'll get in both.

thanks guys! it was so super easy.
it's 2 pound cakes. one full one on the bottom and 1/2 of the other on top. frost it yellow and white. put some black licorice on the top to separate the windows and the people are vanilla wafers! we used m&m's for headlights and tail lights and we cut up swedish fish for the mouths and the license plates.
honestly it took no time at all!


brooke- i wish it could fit in the box for you!

I'm always on the lookout for new things to fix for dinner. I picked this recipe up at the grocery store the other day. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems to be pretty simple and it looks really yummy in the picture.

Chicken Fried Rice

1 lb (about 1/2 inch thick) slice of Boar's Head EverRoast Chicken Breast (I'm sure you can use any cooked chicken)
4 tbs Olive Oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbs. chopped fresh ginger
2 Cups frozen (thawed) Asian or American package vegetables
1 C cooked jasmine rice
1/4 Cup soy sauce

Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces, set aside.

In a large saute pan or wok, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium-high heat. pour in the egg and quickly swirl around the pan so it forms a thin layer. Cook until just firm and a thin coating of cooked egg is formed; cut into 1/4-inch strips.

Wipe out the pan and add a tablespoon of the oil. Increase the heat and saute the ginger, about 2 minutes or until golden. Add the remaining oil and the vegetables and cook about 5 minutes. Stir the chicken into the pan. Add the rice and soy sauce and continue cooking just to warm through. Remove from the heat, toss in the egg, and serve.
