    Ay yi yi--how did Monday get back so quickly??? Oh well, I guess it's here, so make it a good one, right??

    Deb--I hear you about the exercise thing! I was in a good routine this summer, but I've been so mentally exhausted these first 2 weeks back at work that I haven't been able to get back to it. I can tell I need to, I just can't seem to get it done!

    Here's my list for today:

    1. Up
    2. Caffeinate
    3. Empty dishwasher

    4. Clean DH's bathroom
    5. DS up
    6. All of DS's week stuff to Mom
    7. Other stuff to mom's

    8. CD's to work for computer
    9. Cards to work
    10. Work--gotta get lots done today!!
    11. Pick up DS

    12. Play with DS when we get home!! Best part of the day!
    13. Walk with DS while DH mows
    14. Write last 5 thank you notes

    15. Fold laundry
    16. Run other 3 loads of laundry--load #3 going now!
    17. Lean Cuisine meal for dinner--nope, was bad. . .ordered pizza, but only ate 2 slices!

    well i still have my pain. and it's not getting better. the dr said that if it was shingles the rash would have appeared by now. :confused3 so he does not think it's that?? ok. so what is it??

    dh is on vacation because bubba is done with camp and there is still 2 more weeks until school starts. so he's off this week and i'm off next week. and that stinks that we are on separate vacations....but what else can i do??
    i did take today off. and hoping to take wed and fri too?? maybe;)

    we (or dh) did a clean sweep of ds bedroom yesterday. :scared1:what a task that was. i supervised!:goodvibes i did however do his clothes. holy cow did he have a ton that did not fit in those drawers. and shoes. wowzer. tons that he had outgrown. very little pants fit. the waist is good, but the length is way too short! my bubba is getting so big. i have got to get him new school clothes this week. my mother would be telling me off right now, that i have not done it yet. sorry mom!:angel:

    so my list for today is to enjoy my boys.
    maybe go out for breakfast?
    get bubba some pants for school
    post office. mail and pick up. -this is getting old! i want my mail delivery back!

    ok that's about it for me.
    have a great day everyone!

    I have to work today...Hope that I can leave a little early. I would have taken today off, but my boss has a big meeting this afternoon and he was out all last week.

    We'll probably go out for dinner. Boil water order is still in effect and it's my birthday, so I don't want to deal with dishes!

    Went to Mike's last night and bought myself some fun fun stuff, hey, I had a 25% off everything coupon, how could I not?!

    Morgan starts school in 2 weeks too. She has no supplies, no new clothes, nothing...I'm a slacker mom! We'll get some shopping done this week.

    Hope everyone has a good day. Holly, I hope they figure out what's up with you, have a great day with your boys!

    i just noticed my text Jennifer! sorry i missed it!
    so you did my Mike's?? i did not have the coupon. the lady in mom's building used to save the coupons for M's, J's and ACM. shucks i'll miss that. did you think i can call her and ask her to still save them for me?? but then i'd have to go to mom's house every week and i just can't bring myself to do that. i guess i will have to break down and buy the Sunday paper now!

    what did ya get? share with me!

    where do you think you will do dinner?

    No work outs for me today, we are in for the second day of a 4 day heat wave so we are camping out inside.

    Must do:
    Finish all scrapbook pages for SDV
    Finish t-shirts
    clean my half of the bedroom, DH can deal with his!
    kit all remaining pages and finish packing tools

    rinse, repeat. This will be my daily list for the next 9 days.

    I got it by email. If you sign up for "The Knack" on their webpage, they send you all kinds of fun coupons! I didn't get anything too great, some clearance stuff, oh, the MM Tag Curler doo-hickey, it was $7.50 after the coupon, and all the tags were about $2.25. I thought that was a good deal...

    I'm leaning toward either seafood or Bugaboo Creek. Not sure what I'll be in the mood for by then. Either way, I'm not washing dishes!
