~The Daily Grind~ 10/14/09

It's Hump Day!! Happy Wednesday everyone!!

So, I got some stuff done on my list yesterday... still have to bless the house, so that is a carryover... Got a cool costume lined up for Halloween, so I got something done on my day off...

Brooke- I so know what you mean about the after vaca stuff... DH always laughs at me because I cry when I get to Disney, and I cry when I leave... and then getting back in the swing of everyday life is always so hard! Hang in there!

PN96- Good luck without the fast food! I'm doing the same thing here too!! And no lattes either...

My List for Today:

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

Work till 3p

Stay on points! Doing so-so with this...not gaining but not losing either... must be doing something wrong... at least not goinging though...

365 pic...

Take a walk...DS21 was bugging me to take one...telling me how great I will feel...my cheerleader...

Work more on Paper Mountain

Dinner.... Fish I guess...

Have a Great Wednesday Everyone!! :teeth:

Happy Birthday to my DD...

Zero to Hero!!!!!

I do remember that weather, PBF. DH and I were building our house, our lot was complete muck and mud was getting tracked into my bootiful new home.

Happy Birthday, ZtH!!!!! Enjoy your special day. What time is cake being served? Chocolate or white cake? Po3 and I have a difference of opinion on what birthday cake should be.

I was so excited about ZtH's birthday, I forgot about my to do list. Here it goes:

Wood in the woodstove
a load of laundry in the wash
Write in DD's communication book
Get DD up and ready for school. (let's hope the morning 'tude is better than Tuesday evening's 'tude was. OY
Make sure DD looks all spiffy for school. School pictures being taken.
Caffeinate, oh I almost forgot, get some apple walnut pancakes from the cafeteria at work. We were talking about these at Saturday's crop, and today I found out the cafe is serving them Wednesday morning. :D
Home for dinner
Go to DD's school for open house.

Thanks for all of the support yesterday, everyone, over my post-Disney stress!! I'm getting back into the swing slowly--it would probably help if I could manage to get up on time. . .I hate starting the day feeling the "I'm running late" stress!!

5. DS up
6. DS to mom's
7. Stuff for DS & computer stuff to mom's
8. Work
9. Make weekend "wish list" for stuff to do
10. P365 pic
11. Wash 2 loads of laundry
12. Order pics from PhotoPass CD--it arrives today!!
13. Clean DH's bathroom
14. Make grocery list
15. Watch another DVR'd show before my DVR dies of overwork/fatigue!!
16. Dinner--pork chops & mac & cheese--nope, Mom sent hash brown casserole!!
17. Go to sleep sort of early!!

Everyone have a wonderful Wednesday!!

Happy Birthday, Z2H! Wow, 19, that was almost 20 years ago for me! Holy crap, I'm old enough to be your mother! Anyhow, have a great great day! Hope it's filled with fun stuff from CVS :)

Princess M and I have dental appts this afternoon. Made them before my hours switched and changing would mean waiting several months, so we keep them.

I had a rough day yesterday, got nothing done and had a MAJOR headache, which seems to be lingering. PIMA.

Hope everyone has a great day!

10-14-2009, 08:45 AM

We didn't see any of the white stuff mentioned yesterday, but I swear, it feels cold enough....high of 48 with rain today. Yippee.

Today's list:
Boys to school
Find all of the soccer stuff from last night's games
Laundry - in process!
Clean downstairs bathroom (leftover from Monday)
Clean off scrap table
Lunch with my office at Pizza Hut (boss' treat)
Call insurance about DS' accident at camp

I think that's enough for today. I'm hoping to get a nap in too, we'll see.

Thank you everyone!

So.. funny story - I was wondering why I was getting all these birthday wishes here, and not on Facebook from school friends.. and I was getting kind of worried. "Does everyone really just not care?" Then I realized - I don't have my birthday showing on my profile....... oops! :faint:

So that was silly of me.

In other news - I got Chalk Inks (colors I don't have!) from my siblings, pins that spell out my name from my mom (I was expecting these, since I have the latest birthday in the year.. and everyone else got them). And then I got a "coupon" for Lunch with an Imagineer for next year. :)

Nancy - It's one of the prettiest months of the year! I love this time of year, so I'm glad that I can celebrate my birthday now.

Deb - With all this talk of cake, that little cake is looking really good right now...
But maybe it's because I haven't had breakfast yet. ;)
