    ~The Daily Grind~ 9/22/09

    It's Tuesday!

    DS17 was already at the place and waiting for an interview when I left work. He was waiting with a group to be interviewed, so I didn't go. He said he was one of just a few that had his app finished. It was a group interview, so he doesn't know anything of how they felt about him. They will call in the next month or so if he has a job. Not sure when the store is opening, but it would be so great for him to get in and help set up...

    My List for Today:

    Caffeinate [​IMG] This repeats every day!!

    Stay on points!

    Have no idea what the morning holds after the morning routine other than... I'm volunteering in DS8's classroom...

    I guess I'll come home after that and fight with the TSM topper because it did NOT play nicely tonight and I didn't like the way it turned out... :(

    Good morning, everyone!!! DS & I were both feeling sicky yesterday and last night. I'm feeling some better this morning--he's not up yet, so fingers crossed that he is, too!!!

    Lisa--where is this coffee coming from?? Starbucks?? Dunkin?? I think I'm going to go find it!!
    Holly--I hope the day gets better. Find something to take to give you some relief!!
    Deb--I hope DS gets the job!!
    AR--I'm with Holly! 160 craft bags! Wowzers!!
    Nan--good luck with the topper, I'm sure you will be victorious!!
    Christy--Wow! Your lists are like Nan's. They make me tired! Way to go, woman!!!
    AWM--If you ignore the laundry, will it get mad and go away? And if that works, will you let me know??

    Ok, here's my list for today:

    1. Up
    2. Caffeinate
    3. Clean kitchen
    4. DS up (and hope he feels better)
    5. DS to mom's

    6. Work
    7. Send Target list to DH
    8. Pick up DS
    9. Try to figure out trip plan for next week
    10. Gather all "non-iron" clothes for trip
    11. Gather all clothes that need to be ironed so DH can iron tomorrow ("Halo" comes out today. . .he can't iron today!! ;))
    12. Watch "The Big Bang Theory" from last night
    13. Watch "NCIS" if I can stay awake

    Rebecca, we must have posted at the same time! Good luck with your laundry! What is it with laundry?? It must have the best "take over the world" battle plan EVER!!

    Ok, give me an opinion here, my lovely Disney friends!! You know we are going next week--WOOHOO!!! DS is 13 months old (will be 14 months next Thurs) and rides pretty well in the car. The original plan was to leave at 2 a.m. on Friday morning and drive, letting him sleep until about 7 or 8, stopping for breakfast and keep going--stopping to let DS play here or there and just get out of the car.

    Now, I'm wondering if it would be better to drive Thursday afternoon from about 4 'til about 9:30 (again, stopping as needed), stop somewhere and spend the night, and then get up Friday morning about 7 or so and drive the rest of the way.

    What do y'all think??

    My parents always left in the middle of the night with the 4 of us- I honestly can't remember long car trips before there were at least 3 of us (I was 4 when my 2nd baby brother was born and we had lived in Hawaii for a year and a half so no long car trips). I would say you should judge it on how tired you think the drivers will be and what they need- if your DS is good in the car.

    We left about 4:30-5am because that is when my dad would wake up and the rest of us would just fall into the car in our jammies and change into clothes later at a rest area. We would normally go until about 5pm with just stopping for lunch and bathroom breaks occasionally.

    Debbie, good luck to your DS. I hope he gets the job!!!
    Rita, good luck on getting all your encampment stuff done and together.
    SIOH, I hope you guys feel better. You cannot get sick this close to your Disney trip!!!
    Holly, I sure hope you feel better soon.:hug:

    SIOH, I would break the driving up and leave in the afternoon and then spend the night. That way you aren't so tired when you get to WDW.

    My day:
    Make DH's lunch
    DS up and off to school

    Catch up on Dis and e-mails
    Clean, tidy, laundry

    Fix dinner
    Swap out Everyday and AK Pages swap
    Watch night 2 of DWTS!

    Have an awesome day everyone!

    Brooke, leave in the middle of the night!!!! My parents always left in the middle of the night and we drove from Indiana.. My dad said if he had to do it over again today, he'd do it the same way..

    We left one year after school.. it was awful.. we spent more time fighting w/ the kids in the car than anything else.. no one could be satisfied.. You have only one..but by the time I hit TN, I was ready to drop off 3 of the 5.. DS8 was a baby, so he wasn't the problem..
    Last year we drove down and we left after school..and took our time...but DH said we should have left in the wee hours.. although big storms came through that night, so we may not have gotten out of our state w/o numerous detours.

    If we drive again, we are leaving in the wee hours..

    PrincessM is better. She's off to school.

    I'm home, DH took my car to the mechanic, so I have his today. No plans to leave the house, I've *got* to do laundry and vac, so there's no need to go anywhere until 7:00 for my girl scout nut fundraiser meeting.

    So, my list is:
    More coffee
    Start laundry
    Crafting? Need to start sewing and I'd LOVE to get my DN's scrapbook started.
    Laundry, laundry, laundry
    Nut meeting

    Rita- Have fun at encampment? Will you? Either way, you'll have fun at CKC after that!
    Holly - I hope you can go to the store earlier to get something - you don't want to be coughing all day!
    SIOH- I understand the "Halo" thing. After Xmas (when DBF gets all his videogames, pretty much) Lou is unreachable for the next few days, as he sits in his room, playing through all the games.
    DIT - Where is "Swap out AK stuff" in there?!?! ;)


    Read Government Chapter

    Are you anxious to get these back??:rotfl: I didn't think about swapping out when I made my list since the actual due date for all 3 of those swaps is tomorrow and was surprised this morning when I looked at what came yesterday and realized that 2 of these swaps were complete 2 days early!!! I'll go add it to my list now, but it might be tomorrow before I get to it. Having a job is really messing with my routines!:rotfl: But, I'm off tomorrow.

    I haven't printed photos yet, so it's not like I'm waiting on pages.

    Speaking of printing photos.... I should do that soon....

    Morning all! I should reallly DIS before I FB - I could be here earlier!!

    DD9 is home from school again today but I am prepared for it - so will be more organized today.:lmao:I crack myself up!

    *Breakfast for everyone
    *Dressed? Who cares - nobody here but the cows

    *Write letter to Country Club we belong to - in our old city - make them an offer to buy out of membership. REALLY sick of paying them since we are 3 hours away!!
    *Write offer letter to lab for $1300 biopsy bill - doubt they are going to offer us
    a discount but doesn't hurt to try right?

    *Sign DD2 up for The Little Gym - she really misses it
    *Call friend and reschedule trip to interactive Bob The Builder exhibit at museum - our DDs9 are both home sick.
    *Attempt to scrap - with girls :rotfl2: or when DD2 takes a nap - I am soooo far behind. Like 8 years now I think. Decided to play with DIS siggie line instead. And copy financial info for Farm Credit -
