    Welcome back SIOH!!! I'm so glad you had such a great trip. And, that's so awesome that you got to meet 2 Dis pals!!!!!!

    I did a Gypsy and Cricut demonstration at Michaels yesterday and had such a fun time. Based on where I was located, I ended up being the information desk for everyone coming into the store, but I also got quite a few men and women interested in the Cricut. There were only a couple interested in the Gypsy. It was a fun day and I loved spending all that time on the Gypsy. It's so easy to use and I so :love: it!!! It's high on my list of wants and I think DH is getting really tired of me going on and on and on about it!!:rotfl: Maybe he'll get so tired of it that he'll buy me one!!!!

    My day:
    Make DH's lunch
    DS up and off to school
    Clean bedroom
    Vacuum
    Wait for exterminator for quarterly spray

    Make list of things I still need to do before trip next week
    Work on something from that list
    Work
    Dinner - ??
    Watch DWTS

    Have a great day everyone!

    SIOH- glad your trip went so well
    DIT- good luck getting the gypsy

    Today-
    exercise
    salad for lunch
    fold and put away laundry
    finish lyric swap
    bag and tag lyric swap
    Celebratuon meeting
    pull things to begin working on next couple of swaps
    remburables for Sept
    put away scrap stuff bought in last week
    dinner????- something with beef

    Workin' today. DH and PrincessM have the day off. My boss's wife is having hip surgery on Wednesday, and I don't work on Tuesday, so I really have to go in today. He expects he'll be out for at least a week...

    SIOH, so glad to hear you had a great time! How fun to meet DIS friends!

    Stephanie, is it fun? I'm waiting, not so patiently, for my pre-order to come in...Should be before Christmas.

    Rebecca, steak or ground beef?

    Deb, is that scrap paper mountain or icky bills and stuff? I swear they multiply when you leave them alone.

    PrincessM bet DH that she watch no TV all day yesterday and she did it. He now owes her a board game. She had a rough couple of hours yesterday, but managed to keep herself busy and away from the TV. I'm proud of her ;)

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    I haven't decided yet- I have ground beef that I could Morracan pockets (adapted from a Disney recipe, tacos, or a London Broil, or steaks- I just need some iron so it will be something with beef.

    Tossed i guess- I don't do mayo or dressings so it is really cut vegies over spinich and today I have shrimp to top it off.

    I am working on getting back into my losing weight stuff- salads for lunch, 15 minutes of the bike, walking a few times a week- that kind of stuff- need to check and see if DH wants to walk with me this morning.

    Oh yes, it is soooo much fun!!!! I'm hoping I get one for Christmas (or maybe early if I'm good!:goodvibes

    Princess M, way to go!!!! That's great that she could go all day without the tv. I don't think my DS could do it.

    Holly, have a fun time shopping for Legos with Bubba and spending the day with him. Is he still enjoying scouts?

    She was so funny. I heard her say a couple times "tomorrow I'll have TV AND a board game." She wouldn't even watch football while DH was watching during dinner. She sat with her back to the TV.

    Can I just tell you how much I don't want to be at work? It's a quiet day, but I'm soooooo booooooooooooooooooored!

    Good Afternoon!

    WE were busy, busy, busy this AM... kids off to school, DH had his neuro appointment and we spoke w/ the neurologist in depth about his diagnosis and that the meds are so doing their job!!! :) Thank you God! We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful neurologist!!

    Today we also put our new vehicle on our insurance policy!!! Next week we are plating/registering it to us! Spending DH and I's Christmas money early to do this..but we knew this was our Christmas present this year anyway.. it just came in early!

    DH and I also will be further researching the 4 colleges DsS18 was accepted too... He, DsS, is also following up on one of the colleges because I don't think it's really going to give him the educational background that 2 of the others will definitely. I'm actually pushing for the out of state college for him to attend due to who it is associated with in the real world!!!! This school would give him a better chance for a job in the industry he wants in...

    Today has flown by so what was on the agenda is not getting done... but I'll get done what I can get done!

    Hope everyone is doing well...
    Glad to have yo home safe and sound Brooke! Can't wait to see how my nephew did on his first vacation!!!

    Ok, off to check on some things and tie down some lose ends here.. I have a big XC meet to attend tomorrow for DD so I'm going to be on the road right after school tomorrow for her big meet... this is the make it or break it meet to state regionals!!!!

    So, cooking penne, sauce, meatballs, salad for dinner tonight...

    yes he is! thanks for asking! my mil sewed his patches on his shirt and just dropped it off. she said she sewed them on using thread my mom had given her, so she told bubba to think of both his grandmothers when wearing that shirt! :) my mother would have loved to see him in that shirt.

    christy- you WILL find a job. i just know it!

    TRM- i pm'd Ashley and she's ok. her dh is working a lot of hours and her sil is visiting. so just busy. but she is ok. i was so glad to get her pm back.

    Yup, we have school.... never fails...
    however, I'll send them today to have 3 days off next week.. 1 day off is a full day parent/teacher conferences... than Thurs/Friday are fall break! So we have a 5 day weekend!!!! :)

    I only have one conference this year.. for DS9... I opted out of my middle schooler and 3 high schoolers.. 3 high schoolers because I check their grades daily and jump them when needed...same for my middle schooler besides the fact that his home room/algebra teacher is a waste of space!!! I'm on top of my kids daily about their grades... so I know how they did before they do since the teacher's post grades before returning them! :) My Middle Schooler is quite shocked when I can tell him what he got on his last algebra test before he knows!
