    Can I join? :)

    I'm not as interesting as some of you.... but I'll try! :p

    To do:
    -Wake up at reasonable time (trying to get in the habit of getting up at 7 am... good luck to me)I ended up getting up at 8.... not too bad.
    - Daily ritual of checking playing Mafia Wars on Facebook (my guilty pleasure) while waiting for the Dis to take forever to load.
    -Alternate between swap stuff and working on my room - I want to try out an svg file that MM2000 sent me for Toppers n' Tags.It's in toppers and tags now, MM!
    - Eat dinner at 3:30... ugh, so early.No fridge, so I had easy mac for late lunch and will eat late dinner when I get home from work.
    -Go to work at 5. Hopefully will not have a mouse problem tonight like we did last night. Or a guy who tries to seduce his way out of paying a 10$ fine.... yeesh. Didn't work, I might add.

    Not to mention: Freak out all day because there are only 2 weeks left until Disney. :woohoo:


    See? The life of a teenager is a boring thing...

    It's Tuesday! Yay for "not-Monday"!! I start schedule changes today--we are on a WAY different schedule at school this year, so my day will mostly be spent explaining why I CAN'T change someone's schedule.

    Y'all, please send prayers & pixie dust to my co-worker today. She is the one who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and she's having surgery today.

    Deb--wow! Glad it's not me on that trip! :rotfl2:
    Nan--Is "Oh Happy Day" playing in your mind today?? ;) Tell the kiddos to have a WONDERFUL first day of school!
    ZTH--not at all boring. . .and the story about the guy and the $10 is priceless! Can I just mention that every time I see your posts, I get that song in my head?? Love it!! I love that movie and everything about it!

    All righty. . .here we go:

    1. Up--got back into the walking last night, and I'm feeling it today!
    2. Caffeinate

    3. Write a couple of thank-you notes
    4. Get stuff together for work
    5. DS up
    6. Drop DS off at mom's
    7. Take different food

    8. Work--yesterday was a good day! Trying to make today that, too!
    9. Pick up DS
    10. Renew medicine at Walmart
    11. Start other cards
    12. Finish thank you cards
    13. FOLD LAUNDRY!!!
    14. Wash laundry--2 loads
    15. Walk with DS while DH mows
    16. Frozen meal for dinner
    17. Watch "Cake Boss" from last night!
    18. Make packing list for cabin this weekend
    19. Clean DH's bathroom, if time

    Hi Holly!! We posted at the same time! DS is feeling better--thanks for asking! He still is eating a little less than normal, and his rash flares if he gets hot, but he's MUCH better! The dr said it would take 7-10 days for the rash to completely go away. It really makes you count your blessings when they're feeling well!!!

    What days will you all be at Disney- will you be overlaping with SDV and be able to stop by and see us? August 27/28 is when we all get there for the weekend.

    It's Tuesday! Yay, no work for me today! Morgan just got up, her rash looks a bit better, but the eye is making me nervous. I've got to call the doctor and see if I can get her into an allergist. I'm pretty sure it was sunscreen, but who knows?

    Today:
    Morgan for a hair cut, she's donating to Locks of Love again.
    Morgan and I for a mani/pedi she deserves it for her selfless donation of her hair, I just deserve it.
    I have to renew my license. Bah, my hair is soooooo gray and my glasses are broken, should be a GREAT picture for five years! I did order glasses yesterday, but they won't be in until Thursday, and I won't pick them up until Friday and my license expires on Monday, so it's either today or Thursday to renew. I hate doing it!
    Work on swaps so I can get some stuff mailed! Oh, I need to check on my order from Scrap Your Trip.
    Still on a boil order for the water...Not a happy camper!

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Not boring at all!!! If you want, I'll trade you days... you just have to come on a hectic day to realize the life of a teenager is to be enjoyed because adulthood/having a family sometimes isn't all the fun it looks like, especially in the movies!! LOL

    The kids are all off to school; the quiet has begun and it's nice so far.. talk to me again in an hour! I'm going to start working on my 365 project and get it caught up before noon today... I'll only be behind the month of August... the first week of August we just hung around town...so I need to do a week about town...
    today's photo is the kids are ready for school!
    My bigger kids got the cool bus driver ~ she's a peach! My little one got the jerk... but he tends to do better w/ the younger kids than the older ones...so here is hoping it will go okay.. if not, he knows I'll be on the bus making my concerns known if for even a minute my son tells me something that does seem right... I've gotten on this driver before w/ my others... (although DsS15got in so much trouble last year that he had to sit in the front of the bus & his mom had to sign a note stating she understand the reason for punishment and such!)

    Thank you everyone for the warm welcome... it's nice to be here. :)

    Rebecca - Yes, I will be there during SDV! I would love to stop by, and I'm going to tryyyyy to convince my boyfriend to let me go for a bit, but we'll see if that works out. I might literally just have to stop by, run around the table(s) saying hi to everyone while he glowers at me.... although when I took him to a scrapbooking yard sale at our LSS, he said it wasn't as bad as he thought. If I do get to go, it would be on Friday around 6ish, while we go from the Animal Kingdom to Epcot for dinner. Would you guys be around then, do you know the schedule?

    SIOH - Pixie dust to your coworker... I hope she has a speedy recovery.
    MM2000- I saw the news last night on TV, that's awful about the water.


    So a slight switch to my schedule... when I got up, I had to help move my mini-fridge (which I had actually just unplugged and defrosted to save energy while I'm gone) downstairs because our fridge died last night... so now we're going shopping for a new one. My mom (PBF) is happy about that, I guess, because she's wanted a new one.

    You'll probably see me a lot more in these threads since I foresee having a list of things to do from now until who knows when...Yay! for house projects. I'm sure I'll be tired of dealing with house issues at some point.

    Work on swaps, for real today.
    Print house contract documents
    Write dates on calendar
    Verify with DH that he has talked with mortgage broker, and everything is :thumbsup2
    Take care of DH, he is home sick. Besides the house stuff, he just completed a MAJOR project at work last Thursday. I think it has all caught up with him.

    See if DH wants to deal with Bank of America today or not.

    This is annoying, we have had a BoA account for forever. But it is a Washington based account. When we moved to CO, we had to open a Wells Fargo account because BoA doesn't have branches in CO, only ATMs. Our savings is mostly in the BoA account, but now we want to transfer the down payment to our Wells Fargo account since it should be easier to get too, when we need to do the closing. We expected it would be just a simple wire transfer, but every time DH calls, they tell him something different. The first thing they say is "go to a branch location." Last, they told him to sign up for some program, but then when he went online to check it out, it said not available for accounts based in WA or ID. The first thing he tells them is that he lives in CO where there are no branches, the second thing is the account is a WA based account. Come on people, do your job!

    Hey ASH!!! You have got to get that house done... you are falling way behind here girlfriend!!!

    So far the house is nice!! Chores are done.. I had to make a run to town for ink as 3 teachers have sent their papers via email to be printed and filled out @ home thus saving school printing $$.. LOL No big deal, I just hadn't bought ink yet, too lazy.. so now I have fresh ink so I'll do some journalling on the printer today too!

    Hope you headache goes away shortly too.... when does baby girl start school? Is she ready? Still nervous? How are the kids settling into the new house?

    I know, the motivation is to get these boxes out of my house so I can spend time with friends! :rolleyes1 DD starts on the 24th. She's been so busy with horse camp last week (1st place in jumping!!) and a water camp this week that I don't think she's had time to process anything. I say little (ok, big) prayers everyday for her teacher and friends! Next week she'll be home resting and getting ready, so I'll let you know then how she's feeling. Little man has settled in nicely- I got his room completely put together yesterday (the first one that is complete) and he was a happy camper. The rest of the house is 85% done.... who knew we had so much stuff??!!!
