Yes, I do take medicine(over the counter) for it and should be fine. I think it is the lack of sleep that concerns me the most. LOL We shall see. I have already scoped out a "napping" bench at Disneyland while the kids ride. LOL Supposedly on the last day they are aloud to split off for a bit and then check back in with the adults. That will be nap time for me. My DH will be flying in to hang with us a few days of the trip and see DD perform. My MIL and her friend, SIL and Uncle are all coming to see her perform. Unfortunately we won't be able to spend much time with them as we will be with the band. All family understands and are just excited to be there to see DD. Wish me luck. LOL
I hope you do well on the bus ride with the OTC meds. Our kids are also going by bus, but I think it's one of those really nice ones, so should be comfortable on the trip. I get car sick also, but not so serious as you probably do. I can ride, but can't read or try to look out the window at scenery along the way where I can see motion.

Sounds like a nice time and so sweet of the family to come see DD perform.

That is a good idea, and I don't have that either. Oh, what a job that will be.

I glued a sample of the impression to the front of each folder. They are also color coded/ filed by theme.


I'll have pics on my blog this afternoon with my various marker storage ideas. Right now I'm snuggled on the couch under the afghan enjoying a cup of fluffy and watching the sun come up.
You are soooooo organized Kelly.

I didn't see pics on your blog about the marker storage idea.

Now I have a color theory binder. So all my red inks have samples on one page, along with copics watched that coordinate. So far its much more useful.
I have a couple different binders - one that has sketches in it from various websites and one that has colors, one for my Copic's information and tutorials from Marianne Walker's blog, and a few others for different techniques. The one I use the most though is my Sketch binder. I go there almost every time that I make a card.

I'll have to take a picture. There is sooooooo much snow in my backyard it is crazy! It is at least 2-3 feet deep.

I hope it melts sloooooowly!
That is a very lot of snow! Yes, it would be good for it to melt slowly otherwise you'll have a flood.

My DGD and SIL left today on the bus for DisneyWorld over in Florida. She had a low grade in her Music Theory class, but I guess she brought it up or she wouldn't be going.

Sorry you are not feeling well. I keep forgetting to thank you for the wonderful card you sent Mom. So perfect for academy wards season with all the tickets.
She watched the Oscars, maybe slept, but she is always an Oscar fan.
Great card and the girl colored so well. We appreciate it.

Hugs and hope you start feeling better.

So it is official! DD received the details for the band trip. She will play on the Big Thunder Ranch stage in Disneyland and the band will record over in CA Adventure the next day. I am now SUPER excited! For this Disney Girl this is like a dream come true. Lol! Still concerned about car sickness and getting enough sleep...but the excitement is taking over the worries.

Brandy you and I can whimper together. I was in agony most of the night and it feels like I'm in labor in my lower back. The doctor said yesterday she doesn't think the stone will pass because its 1.5 cm so I'll need to have surgery once the infection is under control and my blood counts are up. Ugh!

hey ladies
No time to chat this morning. Getting ready for a weekend road trip. Sorry I did not get my marker storage posted on the blog yesterday. Was too busy trying to second guess what I'd need for VSN besides what was on the shopping list. Hopefully whatever I didn't pack my SIL has.

It was a long week and a long day yesterday and I worked out more on the Wii last night just pushing myself a little more. But I burned and crashed. Headed to bed at 8:45 and had the lights out by 9. I did wake up a few times during the night was finally got myself out of bed at 6:45. Took the day off from work and I've got a full plate going into the weekend.

So sorry about the kidney pain Joyce and that you'll have to have surgery. I hope that comes sooner than later so you can get rid of that stone and get back to pain free living.

Good morning!

Joyce, that sucks about the surgery. I hope they can schedule soon. I cannot imagine the pain you're in.

Brandy, hope your feeling better.

Brenda, I am so excited for you and especially for your DD's upcoming trip. I hope the bus trip goes smoothly for you. I want to go to DL this summer.

Kelly, safe travels!

Maggie, you're not helping me, LOL. I am still not feeling motivated to do anything much less exercise. I'm glad one of us is feeling motivated! You go girl!

3 days of antibiotics is never enough. They usually give you at least 7 days worth.

not sure why they did. they were giving me 1500 mg a day( 6x250mg daily).but only prescribed qty 21 tabs total. thought it was strange. would've rather had an iv drip. usually means less suffering for me

Sounds like surgery will be the quickest way to relief, Joyce. Keep us posted and we'll be thinking of you!

Feel better, Brandy!
Tomorrow is full of family and Sunday we head back home. Unless I have a few moments during VSN tomorrow night I probably won't get to check in until Tue or so next week.

Good morning Paper Bloggers!

What a busy day it was yesterday. I spent the morning working on my lesson for Sunday School on Sunday. I don't normally teach it, but the lady who has been just moved and the other lady who subbed for her last week is out of town this week so she asked me if I would do it. I taught SS years ago, so it's not something new, just that I haven't done it in a really long time.

I took some time to go to the vet to get the special cat food my kitties have to eat - well, Casper has to eat it, so that means everyone does! Before I went there I stopped over at my sis's house to drop off a critter trap that they had leant me way back at Christmas when I was out of town. My nephew in law was trying to trap a possum. He didn't get it, but I did after I got home.

Then I spent the whole rest of the day in my food storage room cleaning up, cleaning out, and organizing it. It's also my scrapbooking room so there is a lot of stuff in there. I cleaned out a lot of old expired food items that I won't use. Not that I don't use some expired food items, but some where too old and I know that since I'm doing NutriSystem I won't use it anytime soon. I have a lady at church that I give it too and if she doesn't want to use it, then she feeds it to her chickens. It's all good.

This morning I go for my hair appointment - body wave and color and then I'll stop at the grocery store to pick up the few things that I need. I got my new NS order yesterday that has some frozen things in it. I can't wait to give them a try.

I've had a terrible, rotten, miserable, awful, afternoon!!!!!! Started out well with my trip to the hairdresser. She did my body wave and it turned out fabulous! I really like it - not curly,just wavy. We'll do color next Saturday. She said best not to do them both in the same day.

After I left there I went to the grocery store - the one I don't like which should have been a clue. Anyway, got all my shopping done and was checking out when I realized that my wallet was missing from my purse!!!!!! I was just dumbfounded because I knew it had been in there at the hairdresser since I had used my card, so I called her to see if I had left it there and it wasn't there. I went out and looked in my car to see if it had fallen out of my purse - nope, not there either. Back into the store to talk to the manager who called the HPD. It took that guy about 45 minutes to get there, but he finally showed up and I gave him all the information I had. I didn't see anyone or notice anyone near my cart as I was shopping so it was just a snatch and grab. He did say that they have security cameras around and that the HPD would probably look at those to see if they can see me and anyone near me at any time. They didn't stay at that store long because within 2 hours they had gone to IKEA and spent $973, some other food store, CVS, Home Depot, and I don't know where else.

When I got home I called the number to report the card as stolen and they put a block on it, then I called the main bank number which is in Lubbock and reported the card as stolen, so she went over the latest charges that were on the account and I told her which ones were legit and which were not mine. So Monday I need to call back and they will report the other ones as fraud. They have to wait until they actually post to the account before they can do that. The good thing is that I had another debit card that I had never activated. They had sent it to me awhile back when I thought that I had lost mine or something and so they just sent it to me just in case, but I guess I found it and never used this one, so the girl at the bank was able to activate it for me so now I have another debit card and didn't have to wait for a week to get it! Yeah!

While I was on the phone with my bank, my other bank called where I have my credit card to report what looked like fraudulent charges, so I called them back to find out that they had used that card too. I seldom use that card, so any purchases that were made were not made by me. It sounded like there were a lot of them. I'll have to see if they are on the statement. So I got that taken care of and closed and they will send me another card.

I still needed groceries, so I went off to the store and made a stop at Penney's on the way. It's close by the HEB where I usually shop, so I went and got a new wallet - nothing in it except my debit card. and then went to the grocery store. While I was at JCP though I realized that I had my JCP card and one from Eddie Bauer in the wallet also, so when I got home again, I had to call them and cancel both of those cards. Ugh!

Now, it's 6:30 and I've gotten nothing done today that I needed to get done. I still need to get a new driver's license, new Health insurance and dental cards, new medicare card, and a new license to carry card. I think that's all that's important. I had a library card, so I guess I can get a new one of those. I also called my boss to let him know that I'd be either very late coming to work on Monday or not at all. I still have to deal with some online accounts that need to have the number changed and a couple other local accounts that I'll have to call on Monday to change the number there also. Such a big hassle.

So, off to get some dinner and then I need to figure out what I need to get done tonight.

What a bummer, Maggie. I do know what you're going through and feel for you. I've gotten in the habit - at least in winter of wearing my winter coat that has inside pockets. I put my check book in one and my wallet in the other. I never take my coat off so don't have to worry about turning my back on my cart while I'm looking for something.

Summer gets a little trickier and I have to be more diligent

Hang in there. That you caught everything right away is great.

Maggie, so sorry to hear your news! Just terrible!! So much work and time involved to cancel and get new cards.

Brandy...strange antibiotic prescription that you got. Are you any better?

Kelly, glad you are having fun!

Soni, good to hear from you. I will make blog rounds tomorrow and see what you have been up to.

Joyce, how was puppy kindergarten?

Brandy, hope your feeling better.

Brenda, I am so excited for you and especially for your DD's upcoming trip. I hope the bus trip goes smoothly for you. I want to go to DL this summer.

Kelly, safe travels!

Maggie, you're not helping me, LOL. I am still not feeling motivated to do anything much less exercise. I'm glad one of us is feeling motivated! You go girl!
I can't remember....have you been to DL before or just. WDW? You did the cruise right? If you go to DL you will have to see Cars Land in CA Adventure

Maggie, how terrible! What a hassle it is for you! It is so maddening that criminals do this to us. I am so glad you caught it right away. But it isn't going to be fun having to get your dr. Lic, and health cards again. Did someone tell you to put fraud alerts on all the credit bureaus? I may not have told you, but my Mom was a victim of identity theft since we moved her. It was a mess! Anyway, report it to CB if your SSN was in there. Sending hugs.

Kelly, thank you. Can't wait to see your cards in the gallery. If anyone else wants to participate in VSN, you have until the 15th, I think.
Joyce, I hope you don't have to have surgery.
Brandy, are you better?
Well, it is almost 2 am. Think, I should go to bed?
