    Holly thanks for asking!

    It was fanominal, amazing and just plain great. I'm exhusted and want to go back to bed instead I'm forcing myself to start on the huge list of unpacking.

    If anyone is ever in Portland Maine you need to do that lobster cruise. Captian Tom and his staff were just the best. I'd go again tomorrow if I could.
    I have over 700 pictures of the weekend to look at organize and wait for a code from walgreens. I need to get them ready to go so I can let a few family members into the walgreens act to get their copies and I forgot to even put that on the list.

    I stayed up so late each night hanging out at the fire and then tried sat and sun am to get up for sunrise on the beach but never made it out of the camper till 6:30 put me abt 1/2 hour behind sunrise. One of these years I'll actually make it.
    okay off to start on laundry 4 days looks like a weeks worth when the kids change in and out of cloths on a whim.

    Debbie, what a great surprise for your DS's to join you at the beach!
    Christy, sounds like you had a great weekend in Maine. That's one of the places we want to go someday.
    Holly, have a good day.
    Kim, good luck on going back to school.
    Rebecca, what are you making for the bridal shower?
    Nancy, congratulations to PJ!!!
    Jennifer, :hug: and I hope you feel better.

    DS got a really good part in the fall play!!!!!!! :banana: He's going to be playing a 70 year old man who is a recovering alcoholic and also very absent-minded. It sounds like a really fun part and he'll enjoy it.

    Auditions for the second play for this semester are finishing up today. There are 3 guy part and she has it narrowed down to 4 boys, one of which is DS. Please keep your fingers crossed that DS gets one of them.

    Today:
    DS up and off to school
    Clean up kitchen

    Laundry
    Package up inchie swap and cj's
    Go to po to mail above packages
    Go to metal shop and give them design DH created for the set for the play at the school and see if the shop can make it
    Go grocery shopping
    Go to Michaels
    Take DH out to lunch

    Scrap
    Once again I'm waiting impatiently to find out if DS got a part. This auditioning stuff is way too stressful for me!!!:lmao:

    Have a wonderful day everyone!

    Jennifer so sorry you're sick, Toms gram and aunt were down all weekend with who knows what.

    Nancy I thought my list was bad I know I won't get 1/2 of it done but I'm trudge through it. Maybe I'll hide under the clean laundry for a nap. It's going to be a LOOOOOOOONG day.

    Rebecca I'll need all the luck I can get I'm thinking it's going to be abt 8-10 loads.

    Congrats to PJ on her new record- did she make the mark she was trying for?

    Good luck to DIT's DS on getting a part- at least he has a good chance.

    I am making little boxes with a heart closure (cut out on my carftrobo) and then I am spraying them with a silver glimmer spray(color for the shower stuff) and then embossing with birds and swirls folder- inside I am putting a few candies (probably kisses). I am cutting them from basic white cardstock.

    Morning all!

    Jennifer - I hope you get lots of sleep and feel better soon!

    DIT - Congratulations on your son's part! And I hope there's a second one following soon!

    My To-Do's:

    -Up
    -Send strongly worded email to Mock Trial Team, demanding explanation for why they went back on everything they said, giving me parts they promised they wouldn't, giving away my promised parts, and making me work with someone when neither of us can stand the other. :headache:
    - Breakfast
    - Get ready
    - Visit work, and remind the boss that I will be coming in at 6 instead of 5 from now on, because of my classes
    - Go to school, and meet all the new Honors Program students. Probably give a speech, because I'm the Treasurer. :faint:
    - Go to work
    - Go home to make sure boyfriend hasn't destroyed the house while he is babysitting my brother and sister.
    - Get ready for the first day of my sophomore year of college tomorrow! :woohoo: (Is it over yet?)

    No, PJ missed her goal by 13 seconds...for this weekend..but we gave her some slack considering it had misted about 15 minutes prior to the race so the footing was a little off for a while... but she can make her goal next weekend.... I need to get on the ball and make the kids' locker posters this week for next week..and than get a jump start on the posters for County, Conference and Sectionals (all in October)... My little create is going to get a work out! (our team is small so it won't be that bad)

    ZTH~ sorry to hear that your fellow team members are not playing nice.. :( Hope you can get some of it straightened out...

    Thanks Nancy!

    I wrote a very formal, curt letter, telling them that I would wait for their explanations beore I decided what to do (and I'm pretty sure they got the hint). I really would be fine if they only fixed one of the two problems - preferably not make me work with that guy. But I do this for fun, and with things as they are now, it's not going to be fun.

    Considering I have so many other things on my plate, if they didn't change anything, and I dropped it, it wouldn't be any big loss to me.

    You are really doing the right thing... especially if you have made it clear previously (and it sounds as if you definitely have) that you did not want to work w/ the specific individual! I hope that they change it for you, but you sound so much like my own daughter, having more than enough to fill her plate..but loves to add just a little more to her days!

    Keep me posted, I'm curious as to how they will handle this situation!

    Just woke up a little while ago, I'm taking a chance at drinking some coffee, but I know if I don't I'll end up with a big headache. Either way, it could get messy.

    I'm definitely feeling better, the nap helped. My list is completely ruined today, but I do have Thursday off too, so I'll have to work extra hard then to get it all done.

    Christy, glad to hear you had a good time. Good luck with the laundry.
    Rebecca, those favors sound great, I'd love to see one done.
    WTG PJ and Andrewno!
    Nan, was working at the school fun? I miss doing that.
    Oh no! Z2H, working with someone you strongly dislike sucks!
    Ash, is DD hanging in? PrincessM was so cute this morning, I was practically dead and she tried to do her hair herself, so cute, but her part was waaaaaaay off.
    Holl, did you make the bus?

    I know there are more I missed, I apologize for that...
