Have to work today. My sister is supposed to come over tonight to start on the baby shower invites. Yeah, we'll see if she shows up.

It's cold here and I want to go back to bed (or head to Disney - if I had my way, we'd be on a plane headed south right this minute - I had booked a 10/2-10/9 trip!) :(

10-02-2009, 06:49 AM
One of my kitties is so in the "dog house"!!!! I was in the kitchen last night when one of my cats came flying out of the garage (through the cat door). As I walked back towards the living room, I saw him playing with something and then it started slithering towards me!!!!!!! It was a small snake!!!:scared1: Poor DH and DS. I think I scared 10 years off of both of them with my scream!:rotfl: DH got the snake and the cat spent the next 20 minutes searching the kitchen for it.:lmao: We think the snake probably got into the garage on Wednesday evening when DH had the door open while he was doing some work outside. I so do NOT like snakes!:scared1: Rotten cat!!

10-02-2009, 07:15 AM

10-02-2009, 08:01 AM
My cats are indoor cats, but once in a while (especially around season change), they'll get a mouse. But, they want to play with it! They don't want to kill it and eat it, they play! Meezer has caught mice before and I'll hear a squeak squeak and go looking for him...he's tossing it up in the air and batting at it with his front paws. I've screamed plenty of times...

I'm not a snake fan, but mice freak me out more!

10-02-2009, 08:37 AM
My cats are indoor cats too. The only critters I've had to deal with before are lizards and the ocassional frog that they bring in off the back porch. They don't catch them to eat them either. They are fun toys, but they play rough. We try to save the lizards and frogs when we can and set them free outside. I don't think I could handle seeing a mouse. That would totally freak me out!!!!!:rotfl:

10-02-2009, 09:06 AM
ZTH~ do your homework! Someday I may just need a good lawyer!:goodvibes

Ha! Someday (soon!) *I* may need a good lawyer!

Z2H and I are on the mend. I was finally was able to take off the neck brace last night to sleep without feeling like I was going to scream. Still on meds for the neck and head pain, but so far today feels like the first *better* day than the past few. She just has pain when she turns her head, but hopefully, that is subsiding, too. We had a scare two days ago when we both were grasping for words we knew we knew but couldn't seem to "get there." (I kept asking DS about his box of "coupons" rather than "crayons" - eek!) That seems to be minimizing now, but still worrysome. No word yet on our poor little squashed car and if it is totaled or repairable (hard to believe, but we hold out hope...).

We've rescheduled the ill-fated scrappy shopping trip with TinkerBean and friend for later today - fingers crossed everybody, it goes better than our last try! I'm sure not driving today - but will have to get back behind the wheel soon, because of DHs Monday surgery - I'll cross that bridge (literally!) when I have to. Many friends have been wonderful helping out getting all of us get where we've needed to go since Tuesday - a magnificent gift of time and kindness for which we're truly grateful!

Good Morning everyone:

AR- Have a great time- hit the booth with the Bazzill early- my understanding is they always have a good sale in Arizona (they never came to the CKc's I went to), eyelet outlet is another to hit early, along with dollar scrapbooking if you plan on going there.
Morgan'smom and DIT- we always had outdoor cats- ours left his items in the jacuzzi in the backyard for us

work on lyric swap
play at VDBC- it is their 1 year anniversary and they are giving away lots of free files (for all typoes of cutters)
take duchess to prek for a visit
unpack and laundry


10-02-2009, 09:18 AM
Arizona Rita- For CKC - check out the Boxer booth, if they're there. They have really cool (& disney) stuff! And if you take one of their classes, they give you coupons. And there are coupons in the stuff you get in your packets. And if you get there early, you get coupons. AND there are sales on the last day. You really can make a killing! And they have cute make&takes too... :)
Always enter the raffles - you could win something. And don't rip your ticket in half when you put it in for the big show raffle - you're not supposed to.

Uhm... I think that's it? Who are you taking classes with?

StitchIsOurHero- Have an awesome trip!

morgansmom2000- :hug: I wish we were both headed to Disney with SIOH! I'm wrapped in a robe and am contemplating getting out the heated blanket.

PrincessNancy96 - Tell him Happy Birthday!

DisneyIsTerrific- Eep! I've never had problems with snakes when I see them, but that's probably because they've been outside. I too have a problem with mice.. but they're not as bad as bugs for me.

10-02-2009, 09:27 AM
Oo, I forgot about the dollar scrapping booths! There are two of them, they're great!

At the DollarScrapbooking.net booth (not the one with everything in baskets, the one with things hanging off wire frame walls), if there's a tallish woman there, running the booth or checking people out, ask her if she remembers the girl who looks like Ellen Page from Juno, from the Manchester convention.

If so, tell her I say hi. :)

SIOH~ Hope you have a Great trip!
PBF~ Glad to hear you couls sleep without the brace. When I made the remark about lawyers I had forgotten about the accident! I hope you dont need one and that everything works out. I was just playing the "Mom" card!:goodvibes
And do you notice she completely skipped right over that?

You would think that with Bazzill being in AZ that I would have been there, but never have!
No one to take classes with, going solo! No one else I know scraps like I do so believe me when I say I am thankful for my DisFamily!!:grouphug:

I forgot who saidit, but I hope the horse is ok!

There are resons Im not a cat person!:scared1:
But we live in the desert so in addition to mice, frogs and lizards we have spiders and scorpions and since AZ is a valley we also can have "livestock" such as raccoons, javelinas and the fave, cayotes!! They come down from the mnts!

Thanks for the advice!
Have a great weekend! In 2 hours I'll be shopping!:yay:

10-02-2009, 10:16 AM
Thank you ZTH, I will! :)
He has been doing his countdown calendar all week!

10-02-2009, 10:23 AM
Happy birthday to your DS Nan!

Sometimes the cats get moles too. They won't eat them when they die, they'll just leave them...*That's* disgusting! DH is in charge of the dead rodents. Except for that one time Meezo was trying to get the already dead mouse to play. I had to put it outside, shudder.

10-02-2009, 11:55 AM
Happy Birthday to DS of Nan!!

Thanks for the well wishes for the horse. I will be sure to pass them along.;) Daughter is upset - her last show is tomorrow. We shall see. Horsey aspirin works wonders sometimes.

EEEK - a SNAKE!!?:scared1: My cats know better. I hope:lmao: We have abundant critters here - BLECK. A snake in the house though would equal inside cats becoming outside cats.:rotfl:

10-02-2009, 02:32 PM
PBF~ Glad to hear you couls sleep without the brace. When I made the remark about lawyers I had forgotten about the accident! I hope you dont need one and that everything works out. I was just playing the "Mom" card!:goodvibes
And do you notice she completely skipped right over that?

:rolleyes1 I was hoping to change the subject. I will do homework!!!

Rita, I tried to PM you with this info earlier, but your box was full and then I forgot. In conjunction with CKC, Bazzill sopen up their warehouse for a huge sale. Here are the details:

The Bazzill Warehouse sale is Friday, October 2nd and Saturday, October 3rd from 7am-3pm.
Bazzill is located at:
7001 West Erie St.
Chandler, AZ 85226

They give you pizza boxes which you can stuff with about ~120 sheets of paper. The first year the boxes were $15 for 12x12, the second year $20. They probably have gone up since I left. But still, if they were $30 it works out to be $.25 a sheet. They also sell other stuff at huge discounts.

10-02-2009, 02:42 PM
....Rita, you want to ship us paper? ;)

10-02-2009, 03:09 PM
Bazzzzzzzzill! I heart Bazzzzzzzzillllllll!

10-02-2009, 06:37 PM
(can't say I slept much, but I'M TOO EXCITED!!)

I knew you would be! :goodvibes

Stop at horse barn and check on horse - she hurt herself yesterday

equine pd coming your way.


:scared1: :scared1: :scared1: :scared1: :scared1: :scared1:

remember CAKE & Ice Cream

Yum!!!! Happy Birthday to the little guy!!!! :woohoo:

It's Friday :cheer2::cheer2: My to do list:

Get DD up and ready for school
put wood in the woodstove. It was 39 degrees out this morning, brrrr. That will wake you up pretty quickly when you go outside.
Morning business meeting in the big city.
Back to the office only to be jumped the second I got in with a major catasrophy with the new copier. Apparently I am the only one who can read the operating manual.
Home to relax before a busy weekend.

10-02-2009, 06:51 PM

Happy Birthday PNs DS!!:cool1:

Tinkryansmom, you live in Cali so you know all about AZ critters!

So this was my day:
Van started a bit sluggish
took kids to school
shopped and did a couple of make and takes altho thee didnt seem to be that many and I would have thought that Cricut would be pushing the Gypsy but not really
At 220 realized I was late to take DD to ortho and had 20 minutes to pick her up and get to ortho, called school only to find out that entire school was in gym for a pep rally! Good luck finding her!:scared1:
Van started but not really well, kept it running while I ran to the gym and was willing to yell for her but kids go to a christian school and as soon as I walked in they started closing prayer! Think God wanted me to breathe for a moment?!
Believe it or not we actually made it, while Im parking the van I had DD jump out and run to the elevator and get to the ortho. By the time I got upstairs DD was already in the "chair" and receptionist was telling me too breathe and laughing at/with me (4 yrs w/DS! she can laugh!)
That was done, dropped her back off for VB practice, picked up DS took him home AND made it back in time for 430 class!! Without a speeding tkt!:rotfl2:

Bazzille~ Thanks Hope! This explains why their showing is so poor at CKC!
Their sale sounds great BUT I am not driving that far on short notice especially after Im all registered for classes.
Now, do they have this sale more than once a year? If i know about it I would be more than happy to go shopping for anyone!
I can see us all texting now "No No, the other yellow!"
Rumor has it that the conference will be in Mesa next year and Chandler/Mesa are next door to each other so that will be easy.
Thanks for listening about my frantic day! Afterdinner DH and I will be working on the battery!

10-04-2009, 01:09 PM
Thanks for the horsey wishes - horse was fine - DD rode her in a local show yesterday and did really well.

Rita - I do so know the critters. Especially coyotes - we have a ton of those here. Do so hate the snakes though glad it is time for them to go to sleep until next year!!
