    Happy weekend all.

    I have regular weekend chores to do.

    boys laundry (last load in the dryer)DONE folded and ready for them to put away
    my laundry (started 1 more load maybe 2)Last cloths load in the washer 1 load of fall fleece coats left to do
    find the kitchen table my end has been lost for weeks :rolleyes1found it and the mud room too!
    clean up couple of piles in my bedroom
    think about christmas decorating........UGH l love Christmas but the thought of pulling it all out is kind of scaring me! 1 20'tree and 2 6' ones, the village, manger and all the rest....... going to stop thinking about it for a bit.
    should clean off stairs and landing (i've slacked on this as the dogs are no longer going upstairs in the house)
    dinner?? leftovers and something

    Sky is looking like snow................ guess I'd better get the boys to fill the wood box.

    Have a great day all

    Snow??it is too early for snow - that doesn't happen until Jan or late Dec
    I hope your wood box gets really full - a fire would be great
    (I'm thinking of cleaning the oven to warm up the house now:flower3:)
    it is 32 here now - suppose to get to the 60s

    I need to work on cleaning out my closet & sewing area but I'm thinking I'll inkscape instead - wanting snow stuff now:confused3

    Reddy I love snow. :-)lmao: waiting on Nan to send me to the naughty mat for saying the word and loving it) We heat with wood so the boys have to keep it full if they want gas in their wheelers and snowmachines. Levi is making me kindling now. And we've already had snow it just didn't stick. It was 24 out when I got up it's up to 37 according to my desktop weather.

    I'm reorganizing all the papers and embellies today. Its my reward for finishing laundry and finding the table which i need to get back to.

    It's only 41 here now. Not sure what it was overnight. Supposed to snow on Tuesday I think. Morgan will be in Connecticut for the week at Nature's Classroom...I just hope she's warm enough.

    Today...
    DH needs to go back to Target, he had a bad shopping trip - got the wrong game and the wrong tablet, I knew I should have just gone. YAY! They had both in stock! She's going to be so surprised :)
    PO to drop off card to NC
    Walgreens to pick up Christmas card pictures
    M wants to go to Walmart
    Old Navy for jingle jammies and t's (new Christmas Eve jammies!)
    M needs to vac (I'll have to push her into doing it).
    Lunch - Panera freebie. They messed up our take out order last week and I called to complain when I got home and saw that it was wrong, they said that our next meal was on them ;)
    Read? Scrap? Nap? Finished my book.
    We have tickets for the Nutcracker in Worcester tonight. This is our first time in this theater, so I hope we like it (and the performance!). Leftovers for dinner, we can leave around 5:30. It was a nice show. Pretty theater, not too far away, relatively easy to get to. We were in the nosebleed seats, but moved at intermission because the little boys behind us would not stop kicking the seats!! Arrrrrrrrrgh!


    Tomorrow...
    Laundry
    Pack for Nature's Classroom
    Target, etc. for last minute stuff, why does this always happen?
    Christmas cards are addressed, just need to pick up stamps and mail them.

    Cry a little :sad1: I'm going to miss her so much.

    She's all packed, we just need to put her pillow in her laundry bag tomorrow morning. I've got to drop her off at 6:15 tomorrow morning.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Packing up to go home in a little bit. Hoping to make a run to Michael's at 7 for the 70% off 3 ring albums. Otherwise, I will be packing, unpacking, and doing laundry today. I will probably have to run to the grocery store as well! Have a great day!

    Michelle i so wish we had a micheals I love deals like that. Course until I fill these albums I'm not allowed to by more!

    Rachel good luck with the wedding!

    Nan you must have been sleeping I didn't even get scolded!

    All the stickers/rubons and large packs of brads have been sorted and separated into catagories and are out now so hopefully I use them.

    Just a few more spots to clean in the office and then I can actually maybe scrap. I've still got to do a better job on the pictures. I hate to buy anymore storage things for them since I just need to power scrap my way through a few years. I've got like 4 years of film pics if I could just be left alone for a few days and be in a groove I could get it done...... wishfull thinking Hey a girl can hope right.

    This year is so different for me !
    We spent 10 days in CA in Oct/Nov DH Grandmother was in hospice, we came home for two weeks and she passed away on Nov 14 went back to CA for the funeral than to MI for the burial. Got home on Tue night and started cooking for Thanksgiving the next morning, because we host. Guess what ! We have no heat, thankfully my sister agreed to host and we had a wonderful day with family.
    I've done most of my shopping on Amazon because we go to WDW on Dec 7for my 50th Birthday trip! I've been planning this trip in my head for 5 years and now I'm SO not ready! I'm a planner, and packer, this one is going to be fly by the seat of your pants !

    Castmemberb4- Stressful!! Sorry to hear all of that :hug:

    Home Sweet Home!!! Did make it home, too tired to start laundry-which I will regret tomorrow. Made it to Michaels- $6 for 3 ring binder scrapbooks- that is sick (as my kids would say). Made myself stop at only 3, then bought a few other goodies of course. Total bill was $30, which was awesome considering how much I got including 3 scrapbooks.

    Trip officially booked for the summer. Flight leaves the June 1st, June 2-6 Cruise, June 6-10 parks, flight home on June 11th. Super excited, but hoping DD2 doesn't miss too much softball. A little worried about that, but oh well. She will only be 11 and still a kid in my eyes. Plus it is a gift for Christmas :)

    DH shattered his cell phone as we were leaving to go out of town for Thanksgiving on Wednesday. He is eligible for an upgrade on Nov. 29th and they won't do it early?? Grrr!!!! They said he could pay his deductible for his insurance which is $100, but he is eligible for a free phone in 5 days. So frustrating.

    We leave for New York for our little Christmas Vacation in two weeks. Excited :cool1:

    Sunday is a lazy, catch up day. Would love to scrap if there is time?

    Good night ladies!!!

    Spent the day at the ER. DH decided to "help" his mom and managed to fall off the roof and shatter his elbow; there are at least 10 bone fragments :scared1: He will stay at the hospital until they get his pain under control, then surgery on Wednesday or Thursday. Yikes, my poor honey and yet I'm mad at him for climbing on the roof :confused3

    Ouch!!! Sorry to hear that Cheryl. Glad he is ok overall though. A few years ago, a man in our subdivision didn't make it after a fall off his roof (one story ranch). On the way home today I saw a bunch of middle school boys on a roof hanging Christmas lights and I wanted to pull over and yell, but decided it wasn't my business and resisted :rotfl:

    Hope his recovery is fast and the pain passes soon :tinker: Pixie Dust for you!!
