Well, she played 2nd base during one of the innings and she was making lots of stops and getting the ball to 1st base. Then when she played 3rd base she was making sure she ran to the base and was ready to make a play if the ball came to her.

So, they gave her the game ball.

DD and DS are off with their father today so I have the rest of the day and tomorrow morning to myself. With the rainy weather I hope to get some things done inside. With all the kids activities I am not able to keep up with any housework, laundry, etc.

I am feeling a little under the weather at the moment but not enough to keep me from doing some cleaning. At least not yet.

DD has a birthday tea party tomorrow afternoon so that should be fun for her.

Have a great weekend!
Congrats to your DD for a job well done.

Hope you fell better.

take care
flo

Strange situation today

Hi everyone! I had a strange situation today. I was out running errands and stopped at Home Goods to buy some new towels. Well when I went to pay, I swiped one of my credit cards and it wouldn't go through. I tried again and it still wouldn't go through. So I quickly switched to another credit card which worked fine. At my next stop, I tried the credit card again and it didn't work again! By this time I was very confused. I couldn't figure out what was going on. I knew that my balance was 0 on the card so why would it be rejected? How embarrassing at the stores!

Well after I finish my errands, I came home and called the credit card company after I put the groceries away. So, first you have to get through the menu and finally get to a person. Well, he couldn't tell anything except that it had been rejected and sent off to the fraud people. Well, it ends up that someone tried to use my credit card number but had the wrong expiration. So the credit card company had shut down the card. They are now sending me a new one. I'm glad that they monitor for these occurences so that I don't have someone using my card, but it's a good thing that I carry a couple of credit cards. Otherwise, it would have been very embarassing and annoying.

Wow, about the same thing happened to my wife a few weeks back with her debit card.
That night we got a phone call from the credit card company asking if we were in New York. (we're in California).
A Subway restuarant in New York accepted the card in the morning, and by night, they had tried 4 different retail stores but were refused at all 4.
Luckily for us, we were not responsible for any charges but we did have to get a new card.

Hey Flo - just got back from the Grand March and what fun! I love to see all the kids in their formals. At our school the kids drive up in all kinds of fancy cars and the dad's of the junior class valet park them! My nephew came in a big Dodge pickup truck and my niece came in a limo with about 5 other couples! I did however miss my nephew and his date at the grand march because my niece, which happens to be his twin sister, needed help in the little girls room and I told my sister I would help her so she wouldn't miss her son. The kids just look so grown up. Hopefully next year my daughter will be able to go!

And yes, we have about a month to go!!!!!! Believe me when I say that our suitcases are already out and DH and DD2 have started packing! We just can't wait to get there. We are getting so excited!

Congrats to your daughter on getting the game ball!!!! Yeah for her. Hope you are feeling better soon. I know the house cleaning gets behind with all the kids' activities, but hey, they are only young once and the house will be clean when they are gone. . .Maybe!

I understand I work at a CU and I sometimes have tgo call the member to see if they had done the transaction...If I can not confirm, I have to shut the card down.

Thank-you for the birthday wishes. My sister and I celebrated the day at Disneyland. The day turn into a great day with the weather not being too hot and the food and wine festival going on. We went to a cooking demonstration by Cat Cora. She was really nice. I can't wait to try her restaurant that she is opening on the boardwalk in September.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Wendy

Good morning everyone - happy Sunday!

Well I didn't get quite as much done yesterday as I had hoped but did get some things done including helping Mark for a short time outside. So I'm going to head over to my girlfriends house later to scrapbook. I'll send her a text message when I get back from church just to confirm we're still on. I haven't talked to her since Wednesday since she was in MN all week for training.

Hopefully I'll finish up SSMC07 today!
