    Morning...

    Woke up to crazy news on the TV.... then to find out it's the hometown of one of our scrappers/swappers is even more shocking...

    So, first try to reach hopemax via PM...then will try to reach her by other means at a more decent hour.... thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the mass shooting.. :(

    Today:
    DH up and out the door
    DS and DD up and off to work

    DS11 up and ready to go
    out to check on Thumper
    errands
    lunch

    DD home from work/verify plans for roommate meet up in a week or so
    back to check on Thumper
    home to work on 2 scrapbook pages
    DS16 home from work
    back to check on Thumper

    once over house
    sort :laundy: for tomorrow
    make list of things to be done at pick up tomorrow for the end of fair week :woohoo:
    balance ckbk
    watch weather and do a rain dance...


    Well, we saw about 1 min of sprinkles yesterday... that was it... my DS16 was at a controlled scrimmage and they got nailed with a bad storm.... he said it was nice to see rain but it came on so quick it was a little unsettling.

    Ok, better get today started.. lots to do over the next few days...

    Hope everyone has a great day! Enjoy!!

    Good Morning!

    Prayers for all affected by the sad news.:(

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    Woke up to thunderstorms early and it is still drizzly out so I think today is a shopping day. Hopefully it will clear up later, but I can't complain about the rain as the area is in desperate need of it!

    Everyone is still sleeping here so I am enjoying the peace and quiet for now!

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    It is sad to think that there are people out there who have such sick minds to kill and injure so many!!!
    Let's say a little drizzle here - but no big rain today. Overcast and in the mid 70's.

    Taking a class tomorrow at my LSS- Life's Memories and More -

    Beach/Summer Themed Configurations Box

    Create a Tim Holtz, Graphic 45 inspired, beach-themed shadowbox. Class includes all the components seen to make this completed home decor piece. Make it just the way you see it or add your own personal flair to it. Have a piece of summer & the beach with you all year round!

    Looking forward to it.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    Good Morning!

    Prayers for all those involved and knowing anyone in the tragedy this morning/last night.

    Nancy- please let us know when you reach Hope- I think having one person on point will be easier.

    Today:
    finish laundry
    get things ready for parents arrival
    work on menu for next week
    make shopping list for tomorrow

    work on paperwork for next week

    Happy Friday :)

    Nan--unless Hope has moved, she lives in Arvada (which is NW of Denver) not in Aurora (which is E of Denver). Hope is about 30 minutes N of me and I'm 45 mins W of the theater where the shooting occured. Very sad news to wake up to :(

    P & PD for all in need :wizard:

    My list:

    Take Rachel to the eye doctor
    Finish lyric swap
    Lunch with DH???
    Work on Sarah's lyric book
    Clean upstairs
    Dinner???

    Have a great day all :flower3:

    So sad about the news from CO. Prayers for those in need of them- awful! Hopefully Hope is fine!

    Good luck to everyone with their chore lists and fun activities they have planned.

    I need to finish up cleaning and lunch (we are having family over for lunch that are driving through our area and stopping by for a quick visit).

    I am a golf and soccer widow this weekend (as is my neighbor), so we both hope to get some scrapping done. I also have DD2's softball tournament though. Two games on Saturday, then we play til we lose on Sunday.

    Yep, I am here and safe. We've actually never even been to Aurora, although we've been to just about all the rest of the Denver suburbs. Can't believe that Denver has to deal with another mass shooting. :(

    also, how deep are the drawer units on either size of the lazy susan in the bottom corner??? I need drawers!!!! I do have pull out shelves in my bottom cabinets and I dearly love them...

    Nan, Yup. That stuff is awesome. Messy but awesome. We have decorative chips every where. It's driving me nuts! We are going to sand and seal it tonight. Then it should be ready to go Sun/mon. I did the downstairs bathrooms today with the left over but the humidty isn't making it easy. It's way cheaper than new ones and looks just as good.

    I am going to paint the cabinets too. Just not this weekend. :)

    Thanks Rachal... I'm going to put this higher on the list just to give it a up-do for a temporary fix because it will be a while!!

    We hit 75 today... it is so nice... we haven't seen temps like this in over 30+ days.... overcast which makes you sleepy but so nice compared to what we have had!
