Yah - Tangled is my favorite too... I just loved everything about it.

I am not sure if Gus has seen Planes? I will ask him, but we don't own that one, so if he wants to see it...

I did not have an auction, but I opened up to take custom orders for next year.

This is seriously my dream trip... I really want to do this some day - it would be a BLAST! Just think - if I started here in MN, drove down through WI and picked up Tasha, then into Chicago to grab Mo... Then pick up anyone else we can on the way to TN to grab Oopsi... Then down through Atlanta to get Ariana and Nini. I would map my route, and anyone who wanted to meet up with us and join in at any point could - then we would arrive for a week in WDW. WOuldn't that be EPIC???? The only question is, how would we get home? LOL Not sure I would want to drive all the way back here after being in WDW.

I will take it in when I get home, but meanwhile I can't use it while I'm here. Not that I have that much time to do anything, but I wanted to get something to your Dad. I will finish it when I can and just randomly send it. At least I got his card out.
Bummer about your brand new embroidery machine, I hope they are able to fix it in a timely manner. Did you fly with it? If so, how did that work? Thank you though for thinking of my Dad, and sending him a card, today is his birthday.

Oooh - Red countertops!!! HOw exciting! I hope you'll post pictures when you get home.

I hope Jennifer is doing OK - I haven't had a chance to get over to your TR to check up on her. It's been crazy here the last few days.

Thanks Abby! LOL at my ankles... I had to go back and look at them, because I've never noticed. Now, if my behind would just follow suit.

I wish I could help you with that. I think you can buy it at the grocery store? It might just be available seasonally (in the summer)... It grows wild here, we have a few plants in our garden, it's specifically V's job all summer long to cut it - since she is in charge of rhubarb cake making. I wish I could send you some, but I am not sure it would make it there.

Yes, it is better than nothing - don't get down on yourself. I've learned a lot in the last several months, and the most important thing to remember is that your body is more about what/how much you eat, than it is about working out. Don't get me wrong - working out is an important piece, but over doing it is harmful too. Which is why I lift 2x a week and I do light aerobics 2x a week - that is all I do. Consistancy is the key - it may take longer, but the over all affect is more lasting. I think that's why I've been able to stay with it for so long... It's not difficult to fit it into my schedule 4x per week. So, just keep on, keepin' on - that's the important part.

Thanks! I've only seen the movie a few times, and we own it... I need to make a point to watch it again soon.

Yes, I am sure you can find it on Itunes.

THanks Lillian.

Yes, it is nice that Gus comes for dinner so often. He is a good kid, and fun to have around.

LOL - We are just fininshing up the first season... I love it. I also love that the seasons are so long - unlike Downton Abby where it's only 5 or 6 episodes, then you have to wait another year for 5 or 6 more. That annoys me.

Another fly by....Whoooshshsh

Although I'm not a great Fox & Hound Fan, as always the bag is great. I actually like the simplicity of it - the green and brown earthiness.
Thanks Ruth!

Have fun on the great epic get together. even if it is a while.
We will - now that we all have our airfare purchased (we all land with in 5 minutes of eachother... so that was executed perfectly) we are all in full planning mode.

I'll check in again tomorrow after the maddening crowds lessen and I can breath - or more rightly speak: I lost my voice today & fully expect to every day, at least for a little while. Allergies and Asthma + loudness = lost voice.
I hope you survived with your voice intact.

I have really been struggling with this for fall, to me changing the date is not an option and I will not push it another year. After running numbers even at a value, it is beyond stretching it for us. If V does come, I really think we need more room. I think having V or V and I in a separate bedroom than my parents is better and more comfortable for everyone. 2 rooms at a value blows us up budget wise and that's cheaper than the suites, so it means that we are staying off site. It is killing me to not stay onsite, but in order to go on a trip at all, it is just what has to happen. We are looking at Whyndam Bonnet Creek. It is located right beside Carribean Beach. Closest to property I think you can get. Through a time share rental company, we'll pay $100 for a 2 bedroom Condo, or $120 a night for a 3 bedroom. Not sure if that would be an option to consider. you would have your own rooms, I believe it is 3 bedrooms and a pull out sofa so you'd all have your own room. If you will consider off site it is a good place to look at it seems. (Trust me, it is killing me! but when I think that we will be able to do so much more with the savings...) we're looking at $2600 for a room & 8 days of Tix at WBC vs. $3,640 at POR or $2770 at POP. We will rent a car due to my mom's scooter I think, but you can use their buses. It seems like they come at scheduled times every 30 min. I think for us having that extra space is needed.
but it means going to Disney.
Honestely - I have not looked into any off site options. I stayed off site once, and I vowed never to do it again. Many people love it, but it just didn't work for us. However, I agree - any trip to Disney is better than nothing, so if going off site will work for you, then I would jump at it. Granted, we did not stay at WBC - and I have heard FANTASTIC things about it... So, if we were ever to stay off site - it would be there for sure.

I am glad to hear that you still love your bag!

I'm glad ( but not surprised) it filled so quickly. You never have to worry about job security, my friend!
WOW - I cannot believe how long it took... I bet you were tired! Sounds like it went well though?

Yah - I always worry that my spots won't fill... That will be the day I close my shop.

Yah - true - she was a winner, wasn't she? LOL I did get a talking to yesterday though - but not about what I thought it would be...

I'm glad V got her glasses. As someone who's worn glasses for years, I know how great it is to get new ones.
I hope the talking to wasn't too bad. Our store manager always talks to us using her mother voice when any of us get called to the office.
I can't remember who asked but I live about 30 miles Northeast of Cleveland in a small town right on the shores of Lake Erie. I have friends in the Akron area and go down to the National park in the summer.

Thanks! I love how it turned out too...

Yah - they do look so cute on her, I am glad she likes them. By default, she will get new ones next year too - since she will be on our vision insurance.

I did get a talking to yesterday, but not about what I thought...

Target was good, but I did get a talking to.

I am glad to see you here more - I've missed you!

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

First off... Target... Yah - so I get there yesterday morning, I had to ring the buzzer to get into the store, since we weren't open yet. So, the LOD comes to let me in, and she asked if I am even on the schedule today... Rut-roh... (not again...). I told her I thought I was, and she told me to double check, because I was supposed to be there on Tuesday. WHAT??? I have NOT been scheduled on a Tuesday in well over 3 years! So, I got a "talking to" about "no call, no show"... My first ever in the 8 years I have been there. However, my talking to wasn't really a "talking to" - since it was an honest mistake and one that's never happened to me before... Also, we just started a new scheduling system - so now we can view our schedules online... It just rolled out with this current schedule. Now I have to figure out how to do it. I work on Monday next week (I haven't been scheduled a Monday in over 2 years...) - so I think this new scheduling is going to throw my entire world into a spin. Anyways... I did stay and work yesterday, even though I wasn't on the schedule - as an effort to make up for the day before. Sigh.

Nothing else exciting happened yesterday.

Today, I have to get started on this week's bag order. I am still running 2 days behind - which bothers me a lot. I hope to make up for some of it today. I am planning to work late today and tomorrow and hopefully catch up.

I also have to start sifting through all of my PMs from taking orders the other night. Believe it or not, this takes a LOT of time... It's not easy sorting through everyone's dates and trying to accomodate everyone, but I do my very best. I may start it this morning, if I have time... I'd like to be completely finished by tomorrow (or even better, tonight), so I can get my deposit invoices sent.

I am lifting this morning too... I was still a little sore yesterday, but no soreness at all today. I am thinking I may back down my heavy weights for the next few weeks, at least for my squats... I really want to try and get my form better - well my form is good - but my range of motion - I'd really like to be able to go all the way to the ground with my squats. I definately go past parallel now, so I'd really like to be able to do the full ROM.

Otherwise... that's about all for today. I hope you all have a wonderful one... Sending prayers and good Spring thoughts to everyone!

D~

I'm crazy but sorting out the schedule for your bag orders sounds fun to me - like a puzzle! Kind of like trying to figure out which park to visit on each day at Disney while avoiding crowds

Glad the talking to wasn't that bad - and about something you didn't even realize you were in trouble about

You will be caught up in no time, just keep plugging along. I am also so far behind from our little Spring Break trip - I may be working this weekend which will be a first at this job. That's what I get for having too much fun!

Hope you have a great day! I am going to try and have a super productive day here!

Hello there D!!! I woke up this morning thinking today is a more wonderfuler day than usual - its your Dad's birthday!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. JONES!!! Hope he got my card and little something else. I would love to see more pics of your Dad; he has such a wonderful smile (just like you).

One of these days I am going to own an original D bag; one of these days. Maybe when I have kids out of college I love the inside of the Fox & Hound bag, too too perfect.

Shane has worn glasses since 6th grade, and Tyler just started. I guess they got their Dad's bad eyesight. I am glad V can finally see! I loved the pics of her and her new glasses.

I am excited for your news about your epic DISMEET!!! AWESOME!!

Well, I guess I had better get back to work; I wanted to pop in for a minute. Wishing you a beautiful day; prayers to you, your family, and the Birthday Dad.

It sounds weird that you didn't get the information about the schedule at Target beforehand and about finding it on the internet. It's good that the talk wasn't that bad.

I can imagine that going through all the PM's about the bags you are going to make is a lot of work. But I'm sure you will manage in the end

So it sounds like Target forgot all about your call in last week in lieu of your mistake yesterday....sounds like it worked it just fine to me!

Watching those bag orders come in was SO EXCITING Tuesday night! Like watching a race. I am thinking we need to take wagers next time on how fast your calendar is filled. Wait...do I need to get a life?

Another Fly By: less crazy today (the rain got moved to Friday/Saturday) But still exciting!

Happy Birthday To Your Dad (I feel bad, I completely forgot with all the Sb insanity. I'll send him a little something when I remember where I've left my head. )

Off I go again to work: happy thoughts to everyone!

Hahaha... Well, normally, it would be fun - but the problem I have is nearly everyone needed a spot before December... and I only had a few spots, because I take a holiday break over Thansgiving and also 3 weeks at Christmas time... I feel horribly because my list is so long, yet I just cannot accomodate everyone - so there will be quite a few disappointed people who won't get a bag in time for their trip.

No kidding - that is the exact reason I am behind too... Sigh.

Hahaha... Thank you! I did talk to him twice yesterday - and I did pass along your birthday wishes... He told me he received quite a few cards, and of course your package (which he won't tell me anything about. ) I can't wait to get up there to see it. I think we are going next weekend?

I will try to take more pictures for you Carol.

I would love it if you did... I love sewing for my good friends.

Yah - it is weird, but since it's a brand new system - I think there is a little bit of leeway there?

It is... And sometimes, explaining that there are things that I just cannot do is a bit difficult.

Yup - it worked out just fine for me.

Hahaha... Yah it is fun. Well, the last three ordering periods filled in under a minute... It's pretty crazy - but it's nice to know I have a job.

So happy you had a great trip! I cannot wait to hear all about it! I hope you had a good trip home!

Another Fly By: less crazy today (the rain got moved to Friday/Saturday) But still exciting!

Happy Birthday To Your Dad (I feel bad, I completely forgot with all the Sb insanity. I'll send him a little something when I remember where I've left my head.)

Off I go again to work: happy thoughts to everyone!
Hahaha... Chicago won't know what hit it!

Glad to hear that yesterday was less crazy for you...

No worries about my dad, I appreciate the thought.

Have a great day at work!

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

Must be super fast today... I have to catch up in my sewing room today/this weekend. I have to run to get a few groceries with BFF this morning, test drive a car or two with her (she is in the market for a new car... and I've been eyeballing them, as well...) - then there's something else I have to do, but I can't remember what?

Oh - yah - I have to work out.

OK - gotta run all, running late.

Have a great weekend! Sending out prayers to all who need them!

Aren't they adorable? This is one of her pairs... She hasn't even worn the others yet...

Love the new glasses...and her hair!

I totally dropped the ball on your dad's birthday card. Maybe I'll get a belated one in the mail, or just send one soonish for no occassion at all. Sorry.

If you need to switch my slot to get someone else in before their trip, feel free. Now that I know I'm getting a bag, I can wait a little longer for it if it will give someone else some pixie dust for their trip.

Hope you have a great day. I needed to be super productive yesterday and I was doing pretty good until I got a call from the school saying that Peyton was sick. I had to go and get her around lunchtime and once I got her home I had zero motivation to work from home yesterday afternoon. I am going to be paying for it this weekend - I can't see how I'll get everything done I need to without working over the weekend. And Peyton has strep throat. Luckily my parents were able to help out and they are watching both girls today so I am back at the office - although my co-workers want me to go home - they are afraid I have strep throat germs. Off to be super productive!

Love V's glasses and HER HAIR!!!!!

I missed sending a card for Dad's birthday, but I will get one in the mail tomorrow, and just so you understand how bad I am about sending cards, my sister's bd was Wednesday, and I haven't even bought her card yet.. Her gift is finished though! We are supposed to get together tomorrow night, so all is not lost. Last year, I don't think I gave her gift to her until May. The worst part is that she lives about 4 miles from me.

Have a great day! C and I are looking at newer cars too....
