    I'm getting ready:teacher: Tried to tire the dog out with a walk this morning, here's hoping he sleeps after he finishes the treats in his toy. He must be growing, he wants to eat 24 hours a day! :lmao:

    Please send pixie dust my way, my BIL is having his shoulder replaced this morning. Only about an hour and a half surgery, but recovery is going to be lengthy, and he will be out of work for nearly 6 months.

    So...Getting the thread ready. Got my second cup of coffee cooling down on my desk.

    Later I may do :laundy: but there's always Thursday, since my meet up has to be rescheduled.

    Hope everyone has a good day!

    I been enjoying the MK swap - ya'll have done alot of great work on it so I can't wait to see what ya'll do on the AK thread

    I had a request for Marie files so I"m working on her instead of beast:confused3 - think I needed a break from Beauty & Beast
    I was thinking there was a clip art or something where she is standing up but I didn't have it in my idea folder

    boys are on school bus, the temp thing on my computer says 36 right now - I think the high is suppose to be in the high 40s or low 50s so too cold for me but not going to complain since ya'll are talking about over a foot of snow, so I"m counting my blessing on not having that

    Good morning, ladies! It's a very happy Tuesday in our house. Last night we got the financial aid award letter for Tyler and the #1 choice school is giving him $13,000 in merit scholarships and another $12,000 in hardship assistance which comes to a total of $25,000! With the State financial aid of $5,000, the federal of $2,000, work study of $2,000 and his other federal/state grants and loans...we only need to come up with $3,700 per year. Let me tell ya we were doing the happy dance last night! :dance3::dance3::dance3: We were really worrying that it just wasn't going to be possible. He is one happy boy today!!!!

    Jen - Prayers and pixie dust that the surgery goes well today.
    Cassey - the DMV :scared: - Hope the lines are short
    Nan - Hopefully your money is here soon! :headache: The federal government works in mysterious ways!

    Today:
    boys to school
    me to work
    stalk the sign-up thread
    keep an eye on the weather - supposed to get icy after lunch
    take the box to PO
    pick up DS physical form from Dr office
    pack up bag for youngest DS to stay weekend with my sister
    check on website for local scholarship info
    bus & homework check
    dinner? soup & toasted cheese
    NCIS while folding laundry
    bed

    Have a great day everyone!

    Thanks! I'm sitting here all teary-eyed just thinking about it! Maybe this will help calm some of the stress and relieve some of the migraines (wishful thinking)

    Congrats Danielle! What wonderful news :cool1:

    P & PD for those in need, especially Jen's BIL pixiedust:

    I'm feeling better this morning, my intestines are still a little "crampy" but, better. Poor Rachel, she wakes up exhausted (that is the Epstein - Barr), she's a trooper though. She "just keeps swimming" ;)

    It is sn**ing here again today. I plan on staying inside and finishing up the MK sketch swap.

    Have a great day all :flower3:

    BIL made it through surgery well, he's got to stay until Thursday, so we'll get Poochy McScout again tomorrow night. I'll be bringing him to his home on the way to work tomorrow morning, DSis will work from home for the day and then go to the hospital when DNephew comes home from school. DH will pick up the dog and he'll spend Wednesday night and Thursday day with us. I'll either bring him home on Thursday or Friday morning. It's an adventure having a puppy here with my two very fussy cats. They are less than pleased.

    I'm very thrilled to say that I'm considered "a finalist" for the job I applied for. :thumbsup2 I got a call from HR looking to clarify my past experience, as far as full-time versus part-time, so they can calculate my worth based on my experience and see if it fits the department's budget. I'm really really thrilled! I hope they'll be making an offer this week. :banana::banana:

    I hope everyone had a great day! Rebecca, I hope you get some sleep tonight!
