    Debbie is off having fun the beach for the weekend so I'll get this started for today.

    My list is very similar to yesterday since I didn't get much done yesterday.

    To do:
    Make DH's lunch
    DS up and off to schoo
    l
    Clean living room, dining room, bathrooms, and kitchen
    Go pickup cj & Chicago photos from Walgreens
    Go to library
    Go grocery shopping
    Work on cj's and swaps
    Still waiting impatiently for what part DS will be doing in the plays. They are finishing the callback auditions today (I hope!).

    Have a great day everyone!

    Second call they were up and movin'.. actually, DS13 (who I believe is hitting a growth spurt) was already on the couch! I think some of it now is the cooler weather and the warm blankets!

    Nope, I won't be on tv..but our cheerblock will be... they are deciding today @ noon the theme and than it's a free for all w/ everyone trying to get the appropriate clothes to wear.. many a days we have made urgent runs to good will to get "themed" clothing! LOL

    *Sigh*

    DD no longer wants us to walk her to her classroom. She wants us to drop her off in front of the school. Granted, its much easier on Mom and Dad, but so sad! :sad2:

    Have a great weekend everyone. I'm planning on having a great weekend with TONS of pictures of the beach and boys, I hate the travel part I always panic over the drive (no matter whos driving) so I'll be in a better frame of mind come 5pm when we should be pulling in.

    Nancy glad they're at second call mine flew out of bed cause they knew if they didn't!!! Levi then decided to drag his behind I've told him he misses the bus he's riding his bike (he'd make it there about 3rd period cause it's 7 miles)
    Jennifer I'm sure they will have a great day and leave you a mess.

    Packing up the laptop now will try to check in later tonight

    Holly still thinking of you, glad Bubba had a great day and sent you a PM.

    Go to cookout
    Volunteer to go home with DD when her party meter runs out. I am so darn tired. I stayed up way too late watching Project Runway then Runway models. Like I care who is fighting in the Runway model house. :confused3

    I'm really starting to agree with you Lisa! I'm going to need a boost soon. Maybe that's why I've been so crabby in the afternoon.

    Ash~ that's a good thing..that she feels comfortable to walk to her class by herself.. I know it's hard...but it lets you know that she is maturing and is comfortable enough to tell you!!! I do so remember those days...I miss them..but I know my girl has a good head on her shoulders...and I know yours does too...

    Holly, 20 minutes early.. uh, NOPE! That would result in a call to the transporation department and a meeting w/ everyone... If ours gets here 5 minutes early, she will blow the horn.. if the kids give her a wave; she knows I've got them.. if they open the door and asked her to hold on one minute as they grab bags she waits.. now that is the big kid route.. the morning route w/ the little ones.. He just blows right past if the kids aren't out.. We have a mtg. w/ him set up in a few weeks because come winter they will be inside, I will be on the front porch and he will stop or there WILL BE problems, big problems!! *of course he tried this last year w/ the big kids and I knocked him down a peg.. if we are waiting inside the door, peeking out, the least you can do is stop because you see the door open... *

    Danica, you must have a picture or two to share?! How was the rest of the trip? Was it reallllllly hot there? We went in late-August/early-September in 2007, I felt like I was walking in pea soup the whole time!

    Well, since you asked, sure! Here's us pre and post Kali River Rapids, and here's a few of Lou at American Idol (since that was the big thing of the trip). I don't have any of him actually performing yet, but when some Dis people who were there upload photos for me, I'll share those too.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And it was reallyyyyy hot at the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom - the days we went to Hollywood Studios and Epcot weren't as bad.

    It was humid though - those shorts you see in Kali River? Took two days to dry. I had to buy new shorts about 10 minutes after we got off the ride, that's how bad it was.

    In other news, my ABC swap came today!!!!
