~The Daily Grind~ 9/22/09

It's Tuesday!

DS17 was already at the place and waiting for an interview when I left work. He was waiting with a group to be interviewed, so I didn't go. He said he was one of just a few that had his app finished. It was a group interview, so he doesn't know anything of how they felt about him. They will call in the next month or so if he has a job. Not sure when the store is opening, but it would be so great for him to get in and help set up...

My List for Today:

Caffeinate http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e147/ddavis860/smiley/smiley_drinkcoffee.gif This repeats every day!!

Stay on points!

Have no idea what the morning holds after the morning routine other than... I'm volunteering in DS8's classroom...

I guess I'll come home after that and fight with the TSM topper because it did NOT play nicely tonight and I didn't like the way it turned out... :(

Good morning, everyone!!! DS & I were both feeling sicky yesterday and last night. I'm feeling some better this morning--he's not up yet, so fingers crossed that he is, too!!!

Holly--I hope the day gets better. Find something to take to give you some relief!!
Deb--I hope DS gets the job!!
AR--I'm with Holly! 160 craft bags! Wowzers!!
Nan--good luck with the topper, I'm sure you will be victorious!!
Christy--Wow! Your lists are like Nan's. They make me tired! Way to go, woman!!!
AWM--If you ignore the laundry, will it get mad and go away? And if that works, will you let me know??

Ok, here's my list for today:

1. Up
2. Caffeinate
3. Clean kitchen
4. DS up (and hope he feels better)
5. DS to mom's

Rebecca, we must have posted at the same time! Good luck with your laundry! What is it with laundry?? It must have the best "take over the world" battle plan EVER!!

Ok, give me an opinion here, my lovely Disney friends!! You know we are going next week--WOOHOO!!! DS is 13 months old (will be 14 months next Thurs) and rides pretty well in the car. The original plan was to leave at 2 a.m. on Friday morning and drive, letting him sleep until about 7 or 8, stopping for breakfast and keep going--stopping to let DS play here or there and just get out of the car.

Now, I'm wondering if it would be better to drive Thursday afternoon from about 4 'til about 9:30 (again, stopping as needed), stop somewhere and spend the night, and then get up Friday morning about 7 or so and drive the rest of the way.

What do y'all think??

My parents always left in the middle of the night with the 4 of us- I honestly can't remember long car trips before there were at least 3 of us (I was 4 when my 2nd baby brother was born and we had lived in Hawaii for a year and a half so no long car trips). I would say you should judge it on how tired you think the drivers will be and what they need- if your DS is good in the car.

We left about 4:30-5am because that is when my dad would wake up and the rest of us would just fall into the car in our jammies and change into clothes later at a rest area. We would normally go until about 5pm with just stopping for lunch and bathroom breaks occasionally.

Debbie, good luck to your DS. I hope he gets the job!!!
Rita, good luck on getting all your encampment stuff done and together.
SIOH, I hope you guys feel better. You cannot get sick this close to your Disney trip!!!
Holly, I sure hope you feel better soon.:hug:

SIOH, I would break the driving up and leave in the afternoon and then spend the night. That way you aren't so tired when you get to WDW.

My day:
Make DH's lunch
DS up and off to school
Catch up on Dis and e-mails
Clean, tidy, laundry
Work
Fix dinner
Swap out Everyday and AK Pages swap
Watch night 2 of DWTS!

Have an awesome day everyone!

Brooke, leave in the middle of the night!!!! My parents always left in the middle of the night and we drove from Indiana.. My dad said if he had to do it over again today, he'd do it the same way..

We left one year after school.. it was awful.. we spent more time fighting w/ the kids in the car than anything else.. no one could be satisfied.. You have only one..but by the time I hit TN, I was ready to drop off 3 of the 5.. DS8 was a baby, so he wasn't the problem..
Last year we drove down and we left after school..and took our time...but DH said we should have left in the wee hours.. although big storms came through that night, so we may not have gotten out of our state w/o numerous detours.

If we drive again, we are leaving in the wee hours..

PrincessM is better. She's off to school.

I'm home, DH took my car to the mechanic, so I have his today. No plans to leave the house, I've *got* to do laundry and vac, so there's no need to go anywhere until 7:00 for my girl scout nut fundraiser meeting.

So, my list is:
More coffee
Vac
Start laundry
Crafting? Need to start sewing and I'd LOVE to get my DN's scrapbook started.
Laundry, laundry, laundry
Homework
Dinner
Dishes
Nut meeting
Bed

Rita- Have fun at encampment? Will you? Either way, you'll have fun at CKC after that!
Holly - I hope you can go to the store earlier to get something - you don't want to be coughing all day!
SIOH- I understand the "Halo" thing. After Xmas (when DBF gets all his videogames, pretty much) Lou is unreachable for the next few days, as he sits in his room, playing through all the games.
DIT - Where is "Swap out AK stuff" in there?!?! ;)



Today-

Are you anxious to get these back??:rotfl: I didn't think about swapping out when I made my list since the actual due date for all 3 of those swaps is tomorrow and was surprised this morning when I looked at what came yesterday and realized that 2 of these swaps were complete 2 days early!!! I'll go add it to my list now, but it might be tomorrow before I get to it. Having a job is really messing with my routines!:rotfl: But, I'm off tomorrow.

Morning all! I should reallly DIS before I FB - I could be here earlier!!

DD9 is home from school again today but I am prepared for it - so will be more organized today.:lmao:I crack myself up!

*Breakfast for everyone
*Dressed? Who cares - nobody here but the cows
*Dishes
*Laundry
*Write letter to Country Club we belong to - in our old city - make them an offer to buy out of membership. REALLY sick of paying them since we are 3 hours away!!
*Write offer letter to lab for $1300 biopsy bill - doubt they are going to offer us
a discount but doesn't hurt to try right?
*Sign DD2 up for The Little Gym - she really misses it
*Call friend and reschedule trip to interactive Bob The Builder exhibit at museum - our DDs9 are both home sick.
*Attempt to scrap - with girls :rotfl2: or when DD2 takes a nap - I am soooo far behind. Like 8 years now I think. Decided to play with DIS siggie line instead. And copy financial info for Farm Credit -

NO girls.. it's DIS than FB... but than again, I only check FB to see what my kids have been up to... so sometimes I go a week w/o being on there! LOL
I do have a friend who is my kids' friends and she rats them or calls them out (privately) if the need arises! (The friend is the mom to the kids I babysit!)

PN~ I have a friend who checks on my DS too on FB. She's closer to his age and when we were going thru a rough patch in the family she told me that if I neede to know something she would let me know. My kids want me to get a FB but Im on sure.

Aroyer~ For 7 of the 8 years Ive been a leader its been very well worth it.
Two things, make sure its something you want to do and if it is try to get a good asst leader, someone who understands you is sometimes better than understanding the girls. My asst and I didnt even know each other and now I wouldnt do it without her!

ZTH~ Ive been told by others to make sure I take at least 5 minutes for myself and zone up because the camp we are going to is beautiful and the place to do that. I enjoy encampment but this year its just been one thing after another! Not sure if we will be in charge again next year!

Thanks for the advice! I think it would be fun to do with DD. We need something that the two of us can do together. I'm trying to make sure that I make the best decision possible for DD, our family and the troop.

09-22-2009, 01:41 PM
I love being a GS leader. I got into it because there wasn't anyone to lead the Daisy troop. I'm glad I've done it, but it is a lot of work. There are three of us leading, and we all work well together. Girl Scouts tends to make things difficult, so be prepared to do a lot of trainings which seem unnecessary.

aroyer
09-22-2009, 02:19 PM
I am a little nervous because as of right now, it would be just me. I was approached to be leader of this new troop because no one else has stepped forward. DD really wants to be in Girl Scouts again and this may be the only way. I would only have 4-6 girls for now.

PrincessNancy96
09-22-2009, 02:50 PM
Ok, my plans changed yet again.. DD's friend who thought she had a tie dye shirt for DD to borrow.. did not.. so I had to run out and get supplies and a shirt to tie dye.. It's currently on the soaking for 6 hours... do the wash and dry and it'll be good to go for tomorrow!

morgansmom2000
09-22-2009, 02:51 PM
4-6 is doable. As soon as you have some knowledge of the other moms, you could approach one of them as a co-leader. It helps just to have someone to bounce ideas off of ;)

Laundry's almost done. I got 9 stamp sets mounted. Oy, I'm a complete slacker and since I have to order again this month, I realllly need to get caught up and start using what I've got!

Dunno what we're having for dinner. Subway is sounding like a good idea though.

I wondered if yours came in yet - I thought of you today when I tossed one of the terry covers for mine into the washer - grungy again!

Hope you like it (ooohhhh...the pressure!) as much as we like ours.

It's sad - my "first HSN purchase" coupon code got used...not for jewelry or some other lovely extravagance...but for a mop. I *must* get a life! :sad2:

09-22-2009, 07:17 PM
Yes, I really like it. I read reviews at Walmart, and HSN, and some people were having streaks and puddles, but mine is working great. It was ready to go in less than 30sec. DS17 said the floors feel really nice on his feet, so it's not leaving anything sticky. So far I've done the vinyl flooring in the mudroom, and the kitchen tile. Tomorrow I'm doing the bathrooms...

Lisa
09-22-2009, 08:18 PM
Lisa--where is this coffee coming from?? Starbucks?? Dunkin?? I think I'm going to go find it!!

It is being sold at the cafe in our office building. Talk about convenient. I believe the manufacturer is Baronet. I tried buying some last year, but the manager wasn't going for that. I will have to see if Baronet has a wholesale/retail store around. I just may have to stock up after the pumpkin season.

Ok, give me an opinion here, my lovely Disney friends!! You know we are going next week--WOOHOO!!! DS is 13 months old (will be 14 months next Thurs) and rides pretty well in the car. The original plan was to leave at 2 a.m. on Friday morning and drive, letting him sleep until about 7 or 8, stopping for breakfast and keep going--stopping to let DS play here or there and just get out of the car.

Now, I'm wondering if it would be better to drive Thursday afternoon from about 4 'til about 9:30 (again, stopping as needed), stop somewhere and spend the night, and then get up Friday morning about 7 or so and drive the rest of the way.

What do y'all think??

Normally I would ask are you morning people or night people? but knowing you are going to Disney the next day, I doubt you are going to get much sleep the night before (too excited to sleep) so based on that I would recommend driving some then spending the night somewhere, HOWEVER, if you get up early in the day, have a full day, then drive for a bit, should SIOB sleep while you are driving, will he be bright eyed and bushy tailed when you stop for the night.

Jeez, you guys go on there more than I do!!!!


Are you saying you have a Facebook account but haven't asked me to be your friend? :scared1::snooty: stomp, stomp, stomp

I must have the same sad life because I was thinking how awesome that mop sounded. :rotfl2:

We did not go horseback riding. Got a call from DD's school, there is a stomach bug going around, DD seems a bit off and she has a 99.3 temp. 99.3 is a temp?:confused3 I decided to be a horribly mother and give up my mother of the year nomination and leave her at school, though I did opt out of riding tonight. She is going away this weekend and I really don't want her to be sick, or worse, miss going away.
