The Daily Grind ~ 7/20/12

Morning...

Woke up to crazy news on the TV.... then to find out it's the hometown of one of our scrappers/swappers is even more shocking...

So, first try to reach hopemax via PM...then will try to reach her by other means at a more decent hour.... thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the mass shooting..

Today:
DH up and out the door
DS and DD up and off to work

DS11 up and ready to go
out to check on Thumper
errands
lunch

DD home from work/verify plans for roommate meet up in a week or so
back to check on Thumper
home to work on 2 scrapbook pages
DS16 home from work
back to check on Thumper

once over house
sort for tomorrow
make list of things to be done at pick up tomorrow for the end of fair week
balance ckbk
watch weather and do a rain dance...


Well, we saw about 1 min of sprinkles yesterday... that was it... my DS16 was at a controlled scrimmage and they got nailed with a bad storm.... he said it was nice to see rain but it came on so quick it was a little unsettling.

Ok, better get today started.. lots to do over the next few days...

Hope everyone has a great day! Enjoy!!

Good Morning!

Prayers for all affected by the sad news.

Hope everyone is doing well!

Woke up to thunderstorms early and it is still drizzly out so I think today is a shopping day. Hopefully it will clear up later, but I can't complain about the rain as the area is in desperate need of it!

Everyone is still sleeping here so I am enjoying the peace and quiet for now!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

It is sad to think that there are people out there who have such sick minds to kill and injure so many!!!
Let's say a little drizzle here - but no big rain today. Overcast and in the mid 70's.

Taking a class tomorrow at my LSS- Life's Memories and More -

Beach/Summer Themed Configurations Box

Create a Tim Holtz, Graphic 45 inspired, beach-themed shadowbox. Class includes all the components seen to make this completed home decor piece. Make it just the way you see it or add your own personal flair to it. Have a piece of summer & the beach with you all year round!

Looking forward to it.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Good Morning!

Prayers for all those involved and knowing anyone in the tragedy this morning/last night.

Nancy- please let us know when you reach Hope- I think having one person on point will be easier.

I have had a crazy week in Orlando at my convention but had lots of fun.

Today:
finish laundry
get things ready for parents arrival
work on menu for next week
make shopping list for tomorrow
pork roast for dinner
work on paperwork for next week

Happy Friday

Nan--unless Hope has moved, she lives in Arvada (which is NW of Denver) not in Aurora (which is E of Denver). Hope is about 30 minutes N of me and I'm 45 mins W of the theater where the shooting occured. Very sad news to wake up to

P & PD for all in need

My list:

Take Rachel to the eye doctor
Finish lyric swap
Lunch with DH???
Work on Sarah's lyric book
Clean upstairs
Dinner???

Have a great day all

Dinner in crockpot

Call adt to schedule install
Call trash to switch over
Call electric
Put in mail forward
Load car, with stuff and kids-will repeat this several times today I am sure
Work on packing up kitchen
Dinner here
More moving stuff after dinner? Maybe just rest up for tomorrow.

So sad about the news from CO. Prayers for those in need of them- awful! Hopefully Hope is fine!

Good luck to everyone with their chore lists and fun activities they have planned.

I need to finish up cleaning and lunch (we are having family over for lunch that are driving through our area and stopping by for a quick visit).

I am a golf and soccer widow this weekend (as is my neighbor), so we both hope to get some scrapping done. I also have DD2's softball tournament though. Two games on Saturday, then we play til we lose on Sunday.

Yep, I am here and safe. We've actually never even been to Aurora, although we've been to just about all the rest of the Denver suburbs. Can't believe that Denver has to deal with another mass shooting.
