    I'm workin' today. M starts school tomorrow, so I've got some planning stuff to get ready tonight. I want to stop at Panera and get her a bagel for lunch tomorrow.

    PrincessM went shopping with my sister yesterday. :scared1: I saw the receipts, OMG, I can't believe how much money she spent (it's good for us, because we don't have to buy her much for the fall/winter, but wow, I can't imagine dropping that much $ in two stores!).

    Hoping this headache goes away soon.

    Everyone have a great day!

    Deb hope he has a great year
    Brooke have a great monday!
    Jennifer Mom takes the boys shopping thank god she's hoping to do it labor day weekend at the outlets. Great thing about my boys name brands mean NOTHING. but there is old navy and gap as well as oshkosh. Su I'm hoping since Eric's out grown just about everything he owns she finds some great deals.

    I'm very lucky. As the youngest of 7 (4 sisters), I am still spoiled rotten by proxy! She got some really cute stuff. Her tastes are very different than what I thought (and buy her ;) ).

    Headache seems to have abated a bit (I got a FV iced coffee, that may have helped). I'm going to leave around 3:00 and do a couple errands before going home. I'm looking forward to tomorrow off ;)

    Well- I am sitting with my foot up after some frozen ribs dropped onto my foot and at least is causing bruising- I have it elevated and on ice. I can't wait for my foot to stop huring. I am guessing that the PO is out of the question for today.

    Congrats to DD!!! And thanks! Phone interviews don't sound as scary as in person interviews, but I know I will be a ball of nerves anyway.

    okay so the day took a wonky turn and I've postponed the camper till tomorrow. It's gotta get done we leave friday at 2:30. I ended up at the grain store for 300# of cow grain, 100# of chicken grain, 400# of pig grain and 2 HUGE trace blacks (those suckers are heavy) husband showed up 5 minutes after I unloaded. Think i found a few muscles in the tummy I didn't know I had, usually I don't feel it moving grain 800# must have been a bit much.

    Holly when I have that much to get done I need a written list somewhere the scary part is I print it afterwards so I can check it off.
    rebecca sorry I've done that more than I'd care to admit! You'd think I learn to use a bag to carry it all upstairs.
    TRM congrats to DD Horses were my passion when I was young, now that I'm old it hurts to much to fall off (I always rode the unridables) I still have three but they are pasture pets. DH would love to get rid of them.
    Ashley good luck with the interview.

    DS17 had a not so good start to his day...car died right in front of the house of his friend when he was picking her for carpool. So, she had to drive in, her first time. DS said she did great, but I felt bad that it wasn't so great for a first day. Her father got him back on the road after school. Something with the battery terminals :confused3

    He has some classes that I think he is going to love. Crossing my fingers that this will be a good year!

    AND the weather last night and today is so lovely and cool! :yay: I've really been suffering this year with the heat, so this is soooo nice :teeth:

    Debbie so sorry to hear about the day not a helpful thing on a stressful day.
    That's cool that he has some great classes.
    Fall has hit here in VT as well. it didn't hit 70 and there was a nice breeze all day. I enjoyed it.

    ACK!!!! Y'all already have FALL?????!!!!!!! We were excited today because we are only going to hit 96 today instead of 102. We feel like we've had a cool front. Especially because we've had 65+ days of 100+ temps.

    Debbie, sorry DS's day started out crummy!! Car troubles are NO fun.
