    :hug: Holly. You can do it. Keep calling that doc and make him give you something.:hug: And, :rotfl2: on the question as to whether I've scrapped any Chicago pictures yet.:rotfl2: No way!!! All I seem to work on are swaps. One of these days I'll get to the Chicago pictures and all the other pictures waiting in the wings! DS went to his leadership conference at the beginning of the week and had a blast. Their hotel was right on the beach so he was happy!

    Okay, my day:
    Take DH to work so that I can have his truck this weekend while DS uses my car. DH has a conference to attend today and tomorrow.
    Make sure DS has summer homework finished since school starts back in 10 days
    Grocery store
    Have DS clean all his junk out of my car. It's so easy for him to take stuff out to the car, but so hard to take it out of the car and bring it back in!:confused3
    Work on swaps

    Have a great day everyone!

    Working today. Probably going to leave a little early because my glasses are in! Yay! I can throw the broken ones away! There is a Ben & Jerry's over near there, and I have a coupon for a free cone, so I'll have a nice afternoon snack too :banana:

    Going to meet Dan and Morgan for dinner at Papa Gino's, I think. I'm going to a crop at the hotel near my house from 6-midnight (I'll never make it until midnight!), and then from whenever I get there tomorrow morning to 9 pm. I'm finishing up some swaps and hoping to make a Disney calendar for Dan for his office. I got 5x7s printed of our 2007 trip last year and never got to it...So, that's my plan.

    Morgan's eye is fine, Holly, thanks for asking. It appears to have been an allergic reaction to sunscreen. She has gone off to Narragansett Beach today with a friend, I told her to KEEP HER HAT ON, because I don't want to put sunscreen directly on her face, if I can avoid it. I am planning on having her tested though, I worry about the future, she'll need to wear sunscreen!

    I'm sorry you're not feeling well, I hope you can get through the half day and have some good rest time later this afternoon!

    We rented "I Love You, Man" last night. It was silly. I love Paul Rudd :)

    Hope everyone has a GREAT weekend!

    Nan, if you get a chance, please PM me your mailing addy, I have your envelope ready to mail!

    Jennifer, a friend of mine has a DS who is very sensitive to sunscreen, but they are always at the beach so he must wear some. The one they've found which doesn't cause him any problems is Water Babies. It's in a pink bottle and I think it's made by Coppertone. Maybe that will work on Morgan?

    I'll have to check it out. She's never had this issue before. She's always been very sensitive to bug bites, and it seems to have worsened, instead of getting better. I have a feeling she's developed some allergies! She is fine with sunscreen on her body, just not on her face...

    Anybody read the Sookie Stackhouse books?? Dead until Dark is the first one - HBO series "True Blood" is kind of a take off?? Currently running through those books - easy reading. More adult than Twilight - Vamps, Werewolves, ShapeShifters and the heroine is a telepath. Good times. Does not, however, make we want to visit Louisiana which is where the stories are set. :thumbsup2

    Good luck TRM!! :)

    Ash~ well, ok, you have a point there.. this weekend, grab a drink, sit out in front of the door facing the garage and tell him how it needs to be done..but don't get up off the chair to help because (even though I know he has help w/ unpacking the house) he has been at work not helping! LOL
    I tell my DH his job is lush compared to mine! LOL *he sits in a/c and works on a computer..what so hard about that?* LOL
