Thank you!

I just got off the phone with my co-chair, and she's MUCH better - but now her older DD is running a fever. I have to laugh, because the other option is crying...

She may still be able to help me in that late afternoon time, though, depending on if the daughter just has the fever but feels fine (as Woody and her DS did) or if her daughter is miserable. If she feels OK, she might be able to arrange some care for her, isolated, but OK, where if she's miserable, she'd feel bad making her leave home. I told her that was fine if she wanted, but not to make her kid feel bad on my account.

REALLY??? I can't wait to see the new line-up. I'm wondering why they did part-time and full-time stints, though?

That's a good idea, but technically I can't "kick" anyone out, KWIM?

Iíd just let the girls and the parents know that if they disrupt the meetings, they will be dismissed for the evening and the parents will be called to pick them up. Either they want to be a part of it or they donít. Itís their choice.
That's a fantastic idea! Thanks!

Iím going to Ohio this weekend to visit Rockie and family. Just an over-nighter. Doug is making lasagna for us to take and share with them. I always try to make it easy on her while we visit. Itís expensive to feed 5 and I want to visit not watch her cook. Iíve decided that I will get her a Disney card with some money on it for Christmas shopping while we are at WDW. I usually send her a check. This way I can help her pick out some things for the girls. Plus since we missed her birthday she doesnít get the $75 card now.

I work the next 3 nights.

Have a good Veterans Day!
Love it all!

Mitch is still in pain but didn't want to take any meds because he's filling prescriptions this morning. I certainly understand, but I hate that he doesn't feel well.
I spotted as well with Evan. So much so that I figured the pregnancy wouldn't "stick" and told Andy not to get to attached to the idea, KWIM? It's hard not to worry, but remember it's not uncommon.

Sorry about Mitch. I hope he gets some relief soon!

As of last night, I'd done cash and check deposits only of about $2200. With only two more days to go, I can't see getting $6-7000 more. We do have 9 classes coming through tomorrow (all 4 kindergarten classes, plus two 4th grades are sharing a slot) so that's good, and then being open through the evening should help, where Monday was so not busy, comparatively, and Friday has at least 4 classes... So maybe we'll do better than half with half the days to go, if YKWIM, but still...
Wow, CE. That's ALOT to deal with! WHew!

I have to admit, I didn't buy anything from the book fair this year and Maddie's school. I felt bad, but I wasn't willing to spend this year.

Our school isn't smart about fundraisers. Alot of the people in our community have lost jobs, homes, etc. and they aren't willing to spend on non-essentials.

************************************************** *******

Not much going on here. Maddie's got a funky wet cough going on, no fever or anything, so I'm not sure what's going on with her. But we're home bound, just in case.

I've got some to do today and that's about it.

Check back later!

I think it's similar all over. I really don't think I could have done any more to get more sales, so...

Well he wanted it because it's new but it's also a lot faster than XP and (to me anyway) prettier. I am getting used to it myself still.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well today has been less than productive. While I was in bed around 1:30, KC was up till after 3am and slept till 2pm. I was up this morning, cleaning up, having breakfast and coffee and trying to set myself up on Windows 7. Yeesh. I don't mind relaxing after a long week in WDW but this is killing me, I'm so bored. I am making him at least take a walk or something today. We never did get to the laundry, so there's that too.

So I don't think I explained to you that KC & I found out (during the WDW trip actually) that we have a niece...who's 7. Apparently a girl whom his brother "dated" 8 years ago came fwd with a paternity test for him to take and it turns out he is the Dad! Her name is Chaianne (weird spelling) and she has lived 2 BLOCKS from KC & I her whole life!!!! She goes to school a block away from us. It's really insane! We met her, very briefly, Saturday. She was very nervous. it was the first visit she had with her Dad and meeting us too scared her, she hid behind her mom. Her birthday is Sun (she turns 7) and they are trying to work something out for her to meet the rest of the family Saturday. Needless to say this is whacking out the whole family. I think KC & I are the only ones who are thinking of this poor little girl who's world changed completely last week. everyone else is concerned with who's saying what and who's going to go where. KC's mom even said it was an "inconvenience" to find a birthday cake for her in their neighborhood. If the visit works out we are going to KC's mom's the night before and I am baking her a cake. She is adorable tho, and looks just like KC's brother.

Anyways, I need to give K a kick in the pants to do something today. Have a happy hump day lol.

hey guys! sorry ive been MIA. I've gotten all caught up on the last few days, but theres just to much to quote on.

If you guys have seen on FB I've been doing pretty well in my classes this quarter. Now I just have 2 papers to write, but it should be simple. Theyre less than 1000 words. One is on a recovery plan of manatees, and the other is similar but about a wetland. We have no school/work today so im planning on getting a start on those today.

Have a great wednesday!

Whew, thatís good. But 100 Darvocet? Geeze, you can go into business.

The pig is often in the road and you have to swerve so I had cautioned Ab to be careful.....the other day she is coming home from school....pig in road....she stops....and begins talking to the pig! "Hey piggie"....come here little piggie" (the thing is 1/3 the size of her van)..........then the man comes out.....(and no, he didn't have his shotgun)....I asked.....Ab said she waved and said "I'm just talkin' to your pig".......he asked if the pig had said anything back!......She said "no....but I like your pig!".........He said thanks he liked the pig too.......

Gotta love life in the hollers.....
Thanks, I laughed out loud at that story

That's so strange! But, we had a similar situation a few years ago, though it's a little more distant. D's stepsister's DH had a child he had no idea about. But being on the "in-law" side, I've not met him at all. He lives with the father's parents now, (weird, weird family) but he was a teen when he found out. And he wanted to not live with his mom anymore. I'm glad you guys are thinking of the kid's feelings.

Thanks! It does help...

************************************************** *****
So, I sent a rather desperate message to my board and "core group" of volunteers, and I am covered for tomorrow evening now, which is great. I just hate having to count on the same 5 or so people all the time, but it is what it is, I guess.

I have done nearly nothing all day - I did change the laundry that D started earlier - except, I guess, do a ton of messaging to get my volunteers done. That counts as something, surely.

I need to do some change counting, too - we did a loose change fundraiser that actually is really good. Scholastic lets us keep the money, they give us "Scholastic dollars" as if that money were sales, and then they also donate one book for every dollar we raise to kids in need. We got a TON of change, even if it's all pennies. The kids were supposed to count it and stick it in a baggie before sending it in, but I need to total it at least.

And I'm helping Buzz with some extra handwriting practice. The kid had his conference last night and is doing super, super well with everything, but tends to, um, rush and his handwriting is sucky. Maybe he'll be a doctor.

Hey all! LONG day for us. We left the house at 7:30 for Jimmy's OT appointment. We were there until about 10:30, then we went to the diner for breakfast (for the boys) and lunch (for me). From there we hit 5 Below looking for some things for Cub SCout activities we had coming up. After that we went to Jimmy's peditrician appointsment (followup to the OT appointment). AFter that we hit Michaels, becasue 5 below didn't have what we were looking for. THEN...we had his med check appointment with the psychiatrist. Needless to say we are all exhausted

Thank goodness this week is almost over!

Sounds like a ridiculously busy day off. I didn't leave the house except to walk the dog.

She can't get him in the tub, has to change him on the floor and I'm not sure how she gets him up to the table. All these things you do without thinking. Not that I mind going over there.

Mitch is still in pain but didn't want to take any meds because he's filling prescriptions this morning. I certainly understand, but I hate that he doesn't feel well.
Your sis is lucky to have you close by to help. Poor Mitch

Loooong day yesterday. I got to school at 8:00 to start setting up. The problem is that I am in the all-purpose room, which is also used for lunch and by the after-school program, so when there are people in the building when I'm not, I have to put things away. The fair came with 10 "cases" that close up and latch, fully loaded, and I just have to put those against the wall, but around half the books have to be placed on display tables, on top of the cases, etc., and those get boxed up every evening, only to be pulled out in the morning.

So, I was trying to get all set for the first class to roll through at 9:30, but I did know they were doing a Veteran's Day assembly at 9:00. With the whole school attending (432 students) I assumed they'd be in the gym. But, they needed the projection screen for the Powerpoint presentation of family member vets (which is totally nice and awesome) but that meant it was in the APR. So I couldn't set up the display tables.

We rolled most of the cases into the hallway, put the books on top of them, then SUPER quickly piled books on the tables after the assembly (which they said would be 20 minutes and instead was 40) for the first class. I was supposed to have 2 more people helping me than showed up, all because of flu, so what can you do? I don't blame them, but it was harder.

We were able to move the cases back in the break between classes.

We had only the 3 classes in on Monday, but we had 6 yesterday. I had to leave at 11:30 for the tennis match. Last year's chair came and took over for me, thank goodness, and I did manage to cobble together enough people that she always had two more helpers (4 people are ideal, but...)

We had fun with the tennis, though we lost. The first set was very close, the second, we got blown out (oh well) but then I had to book it back to school.

One of my evening helpers was out due to sick kids, so we were kind of swamped for a bit during the p-t conferences, but it worked out. D & the boys stayed to help us break down. Normally, on the "late" nights where it's open for the conferences, you can even leave the tables up, as you're going to be the first people back in the school the next day, but with no school today, well... I should be able to leave it up tomorrow night.

I've not talked to my co-chair since Monday evening. She definitely has the flu - her DH is an internist, and he got her Tamiflu, so I don't know if she'll be good tomorrow or not. I have plenty of daytime coverage tomorrow, but without her, I think I'm alone from 3:00-6:00, which is not good. You really need someone on the cash box and someone to help find books and so forth in the APR (where the cash box isn't...) So, I probably need to try to scare someone else up for that. Sigh.

Plus, as I mentioned in the last post to someone, I think our sales are tanking. Having not done it before, I can't compare in my head, but last fall's sale did $9500 total (we don't keep that all, but still, that's the number I have...) and last spring's went down to $8800. As of last night, I'd done cash and check deposits only of about $2200. With only two more days to go, I can't see getting $6-7000 more. We do have 9 classes coming through tomorrow (all 4 kindergarten classes, plus two 4th grades are sharing a slot) so that's good, and then being open through the evening should help, where Monday was so not busy, comparatively, and Friday has at least 4 classes... So maybe we'll do better than half with half the days to go, if YKWIM, but still...

So now I'm beating myself up to think of what we could have done differently, but I think the answer is truly "nothing." We promoted as much or more than they did last year, the kids are excited about it, it's just that people aren't spending. Which I understand, but I feel bad, you know? I hate to be in charge of something that's not doing so well, even if it's not my fault.

D has to fly this afternoon into late tonight, and he took off for the gym, first, so he's gone. We're going out with friends on Saturday to celebrate our anniversary, which is today. I think I'll be celebrating the end of this week, too!

I'll be around - we have no plans today, and I'm just feeling still a bit crazed. I thought I'd feel better and less stressed after yesterday, but different things are popping up, like the sales, to stress me out now. Sigh. I want an easy day, but I'm afraid my kids will be bored and sad if we don't do stuff, and I get that, too.

Anyway, I'll be back! Thanks for letting me vent!
Have you ever interviewed to replace the Eveready bunny? Happy Anniversary!

I am making him at least take a walk or something today. We never did get to the laundry, so there's that too.

So I don't think I explained to you that KC & I found out (during the WDW trip actually) that we have a niece...who's 7. Apparently a girl whom his brother "dated" 8 years ago came fwd with a paternity test for him to take and it turns out he is the Dad! Her name is Chaianne (weird spelling) and she has lived 2 BLOCKS from KC & I her whole life!!!! She goes to school a block away from us. It's really insane! We met her, very briefly, Saturday. She was very nervous. it was the first visit she had with her Dad and meeting us too scared her, she hid behind her mom. Her birthday is Sun (she turns 7) and they are trying to work something out for her to meet the rest of the family Saturday. Needless to say this is whacking out the whole family. I think KC & I are the only ones who are thinking of this poor little girl who's world changed completely last week. everyone else is concerned with who's saying what and who's going to go where. KC's mom even said it was an "inconvenience" to find a birthday cake for her in their neighborhood. If the visit works out we are going to KC's mom's the night before and I am baking her a cake. She is adorable tho, and looks just like KC's brother.

Anyways, I need to give K a kick in the pants to do something today. Have a happy hump day lol.

Wow, that's a shocker for the whole family. The DH of one of Doug's neices just had this happen. Only the boy is 20 years old. I do feel sorry for the kids.

If you guys have seen on FB I've been doing pretty well in my classes this quarter. Now I just have 2 papers to write, but it should be simple. Theyre less than 1000 words. One is on a recovery plan of manatees, and the other is similar but about a wetland. We have no school/work today so im planning on getting a start on those today.

Have a great wednesday!
I don't do FB. I'm glad to know you are doing well.

Hi Fockers! I can't remember if I quoted today or not...I think I started but never finished.

Angela - to your sister

T - I agree with everyone who said don't single out the girls but at least remind the parents that you are not there to babysit. I like Janet's idea of the time out if the misbehaving continues!

Kat - That had to have been really weird to find out something like that but at least you guys are keeping the little girl's feelings in the picture

CE - Glad you were able to find the volunteers you needed for tomorrow. Happy Anniversary!

Janet - Wow...that was a busy day!

Hi to everyone else I missed. That's all that I can think off the top of my head right now.

******************************************

I didn't do much on my day off. Woke up with a headache but was able to go back to bed once I dropped Lindsey off at school. DR and I then slept until 10. After that we switched bedrooms around and I cleaned up my old room and took the kids' bunk bed apart to make 2 twin beds. Now the trick it getting DR to sleep in his own bed...any tips? Other than that I did a bunch of laundry.

Back to school and daycare for us all tomorrow. We start presentations in my Medical Assisting class on Friday and I'm not looking foward to it. I hope our group can at least wait until next Thursday to do ours.

That's about it for me. I'm off to watch some DVR'd shows and then hit the hay.

Night everyone!
