Good luck, Stephanie!

I haven't been to the mansions in ages. We had a dance at one when I was a senior in college. Ah, good times, good times! Have fun, Cassey.

Enjoy the zoo, Nan.

I'm at work. Tired tired tired. Morgan is coughing up a storm at night. The Zyrtec hasn't kicked in yet, hoping it does today (but she's sleeping at my sister's so at least I'll have a good night's sleep) and she's feeling better.

DH and I are going out to dinner and to get some new fans. Ours are getting old and it's time to replace them.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Cassey, have fun at the mansions. No matter how many times I've gone there, I just can't envision the lifestyle once led in those "summer homes".
Stephanie, good luck!!
Nancy, keeping my fingers crossed.:thumbsup2
Cheryl, can't wait to see prom pictures
Lisa, I am green with envy that you are that up-to-date on your scrapping.
Jennifer, I hope Morgan feels better soon.
Reddy, do you get the summer off, or just a break then resume for the summer?

Last day at the Cape. So besides packing and cleaning up, my only thing to do today is place my CM order. Love the new tool kit. DD is sleeping despite much noise. Guess yesterday caught up with her.

JohnsonsLoveDisney 04-20-2012 11:30 AM

Ya for Friday!
Working on getting the girls out the door.
Ds and DD#3 are still sleeping!
Hopefully head downstairs and get started working. Apparently im crazy and there's nothing lirking in my scrap space.
Use my new binding thingy, i went with a big one from staples. Bia was too small for my needs.:)
Check with dbf if we accepted the offer on the "country home" if all goes well we should be in by end of june. But we'll see......
Pick up DD#2 from school
Lunch
More working

Take DD#2 to dance
Eyebrow appt.
Home
DD's to dads tonight. Switched for a bday party on sunday.
Dinner- not sure. Kitchen was finally finished last night! All i wanted was all the dishes washed and counters wiped down.
Probably work some more, or maybe scrap my own. Depends on how much i get done during the day. Ds not only can stand he can climb too. And has figured out how to move stuff in order to do it!

summer off they don't pay enough to pay a babysitter for my boys & not enough hours during the summer for everyone who wants to work - I'm a part-time cashier (with a college degree) with the dining services at the local college - which works out to enough pay for budget Disney trips & craft money, not much else

The zoo was fabulous.. DH snuck out and had lunch w/ us... the animals were active because it was cool... We have some awesome photos of our little grizzly bear playing w/ his ball that is tied on a tree limb.... he was adorable!!! Then our bengal tiger was drinking from the "pool" and walking up close to the glass...as we were starting to move he decided to take a swim... I got great photos of that too...

Got PJ's prom shoes, got her jewelry..... although I did offer to pop her in the mouth for sassing out me when I was pointing out that the heels were TOO high for walking to receive her diploma (she was trying to get 2 good wears out of the shoes).... needless to say, when the boys pointed out to her that she looked like she was the leaning tower of pisa she got a little more understanding of my point...

It started to rain when we were about 3 miles from home!!! :woohoo:
PJ is going out w/ one of her girl friends tonight for dinner and some more shopping... and I need to figure out dinner as it was supposed to be leftovers but we have been eating them for lunch this week..(any other time we don't! LOL)

I plan on scrapping tomorrow after the soccer games from 4-10!!!

it rained here too - lucky we were at work or school

JJ&JHsmom 04-20-2012 08:18 PM

Nan, sounds like the zoo was fun!

Stephanie, I hope you get the job!

Cheryl, can't wait to see pics of prom!

The mansions were amazing! We has such a great day, the weather was perfect! No photography allowed inside the mansions but got some really cute shots of the kids outside. It is truly amazing to see the summer homes of these families and to hear what it cost to maintain these homes and the parties they threw. The museum stores had postcards for sale so I purchased some of those to put in the srapbooks as well as the exterior shots. We managed to tour four of the homes today. We are definately going back to see the rest and to walk the cliff walk. My legs are jelly from all the walking and stairs!

Here are a few pics.

This is outside the Marble House

I really want to go back when the gardens are in bloom. There is also a topiary garden that we need to visit.

Since I have Mondays and Fridays off for the summer, I am hoping to take a few day trips to area places of interest.

Nan, it sounds like the zoo was fun. I love the zoo!!!

Cassey, what pretty pictures. Sounds like you had a good day too!

Well, my day was awesome! I got the position I wanted!!!!!!:cool1: In 1 week, I will become the Customer Experience Manager at my Michaels. I wasn't sure I'd get the position since our 2 current department managers also applied and there weren't any other manager positions for them, but my store manager and the district manager want me in the job. I'll be over all the classes, events, the cashiers, and customer service. I'm scared as it's going to be a huge challenge, but also oh, so excited!!!!!!!! I can't wait to get started!
