    ~The Daily Grind~ 8/3/09

    It's Monday...Everyone Caffeinate!!!!

    I had a great time at CKC Valley Forge! My poor wallet was squealing at the end of the show. I got a bunch of kits in classes, but didn't make many. I didn't like the photo cuts that they wanted me to make...so I'll do my own thing... Saw several DISers at the lunch, crops, and around the show... It was a BLAST!!!

    My List for Today:

    Caffeinate [​IMG] This repeats every day!!

    Work till 3p

    Come home and finish putting away the cool CKC stuff I got...

    Work on scrappy stuff...got things to mail out this week!

    Dinner...

    Have a Great Day everyone!! :teeth:

    Good morning! How did Monday get here so fast?? I think I need just one more day to the weekend!

    The party went well this past weekend! DS enjoyed it, and we all had fun!! I have to say that after he got over his initial excitement with cake icing, he was just as taken (if not more so) with his veggies and fruit than with the cake? Is this my child?? :rotfl2:

    Here's my list for today:

    1. Up
    2. Caffeinate
    3. Clean DH's bathroom--forgot I cleaned it right before we left, so it doesn't need it!! WOOHOO!
    4. DS up
    5. Drop DS off
    6. Take stuff to Mom's
    7. Work--BUSY, BUSY day!!
    8. Pick DS up
    9. Tan
    10. Maybe stop at Hobby Lobby
    11. DH--mow
    12. Walk with DS
    13. Move pics over to computer to decide what I want (we took 400 over the weekend!! :scared1:)
    14. Order pics
    15. Call & cancel appointment on Saturday
    16. Call about football pics
    17. Write thank yous
    18. Proj 365 pic
    19. Go to sleep sort of early!!

    Everyone have a wonderful Monday! Thanks to all of you for your great friendship & support! We are so blessed with our little family here!!

    Well, we are here in Chicago and I'm still getting used to this HUGE place. I am so not a big city gal and it's quite overwhelming. Flying in yesterday was an adventure since both flights took off 30-40 minutes late and we were worried about the connecting flight in Atlanta, but what is wierd is that even though the plane took off 30 minutes late, we arrived only 5 minutes late!:confused3

    DS's flip flop broke in the Atlanta airport so he flopped and didn't flip around until we got here and found a pair of shoes he will wear (of course he didn't pack any others). He wouldn't let me buy him a pair at the airport because they weren't "him" so he just flopped around!

    We did a good bit of exploring close to the hotel yesterday and ate the best pizza we've ever had for dinner. DS and I went to Navy Pier last night while DH was in meetings and that was pretty neat. Today DS and I are going to attempt catching the right bus to take us to the aquarium and then we'll go to Millenium park as well as go check out the theatre district. Other than that, we'll just see.

    I'm down in the lobby while DS is still sleeping to use the hotels free internet access. I don't want to pay for it up in the room. I'm not sure how often I'll get to check in here as I know DS will have me hopping from place to place! He loves this big city!

    Wish us luck on getting on the right bus!!!!!!

    Have a great day everyone!

    Bah, it's Monday again!

    DIT, have a great time!

    Holl, I'm stuck here at work all day too :(

    Rebecca, I love love love asparagus! We're having leftovers for dinner.

    Brooke, glad to hear the boy had a great B-day!

    flying_babyb, Oooh, law school! Good luck!

    Lisa, I hope you find the album! Have you got some new goodies to show us from your weekend?

    Nancy, I can't believe you are starting school already! Morgan doesn't start until 9/1 and then has that Friday and Labor Day off. What a PITA. Just go to school year round!

    My hands are stained from tie dying yesterday. It was fun, but boy was it messy!

    Just signed on to pay a credit card and found a charge that we didn't make. Son of a Monkey Butt! I've filed a dispute and they have changed the number on the account, but I'm peeved. This is the *second* time this card has been hacked. I didn't buy anything from Walmart.com! :scared1:

    Hope everyone has a good day!

    they get out in early May though so it all works out to be about the same. Although I would prefer to not go while it's still hot out.

    Yeah, I know. It all works out, but I'm a big proponent of year round schooling!

    OMFG, I called Walmart.com and they found the order, but can't tell me to who or where it was shipped. Are you freakin' kidding me? Someone used MY card with my billing address and you can't tell me who? If I approached this person and "something" happened, Walmart would be liable. I can file a police report and they can subpoena the records. I'm almost pi$$ed off enough to do it and have someone arrested for an $89.70 charge!

    Unfortunately, I already have plans to be out of the house the following Saturday. My hubby loves me, but that's too much. I'll put it on the calendar for September though!

    the same thing happened to me, except it was QVC! and they charged a flippin' boat load of stuff. so i never again bought from QVC.

    maybe i'll feel like going in September. depends on what's going on here.
