Kelly, glad y'all are back and had a great time.......now it's back to the grindstone! Busy, busy, busy!
Congrats on your daughter getting the job! Fantastic news and know she'll be able to handle that and college - sometimes it just makes them work harder for those grades

Just checking in here before I get the kitchen cleaned up and head off to bed in a bit. I did get a card made today!!!!!!!! Whopee!!!! Pretty proud of myself. It's not the best in the west......but hey, don't guess I can get everything I want!

Shelly, be sure and let us know what your costume is on Saturday - or better yet, post a picture! How fun!

Sounds like fun Shelly - definitely we need photos! ..

Great to see you back Kelly - you be kind to yourself now and give yourself time to craft, y'hear!

Found the source of all the advertising/search thingy's on my computer - must have accidentally downloaded something whilst hunting for sports online for DH - have uninstalled it now and am much happier!! Phew, t'was driving me silly.

Little man had a wonderful time!! He was well enough to handle the trip - thankful for nebulizer txs and steroids! We all had fun but you know how it is, you need a vacation from your vacation

Sadly, this week is CAH-RAZY!!!!!!! Being sick and behind and missing school, then a 'play day' for vacation, ds has so much school work to catch up on!! DD16 has Opera this week, including today and tomorrow in which she is the lead and I won't be there to see it Little man also has Spelling Bee regionals as he was the last one standing to represent 3rd grade! So proud of him! AND, his black belt mid term testing is this Saturday and it includes weapons this round (apparently, they have to complete a cycle of 6 ... so it's never ending, it seems!)

I missed a birthday! Miss Margaret!!!!!! Happy blessed Birthday Maggie I hope your day was as splendid as you are to all of us, my friend. Muah!

Shel, what a positively gorgeous win!! What a treasure! And to have been there and win with your mom - what a joy My mom collected Hummels from our years in Germany and Wedgewood from her life/our living in England ... and she gifted me a few of her blue Wedgewood plates a few years ago. They are my pride and joy in my china cabinet

Maxine, how are you love? All healed up? You are in my prayers, as is your dh!

Crafting?! What's that!!!!!!! LOL! I'm starting to think I need to just start all over in the new year and forget it for the rest of this one! I volunteer x2 days a week at my son's school so that takes away from my morning craft time, too, plus the regular room mom events and classroom things ...

OH!!! Some good news! Thank you for your kind words and good thoughts for dd18 - while on vacation, she got a call from the director of operations from her interview withing 24 hrs and said the job was hers! She said she felt good about it and was so happy. We laid down the law and told her that college comes first, no exceptions. She has to keep up with her classes/grades ... we don't even really want her to work but I think she feels she needs to to start making her own way in the world, so we are willing to do a trial basis. She's so happy
Welcome home Kelly! Glad that you guys and DS especially had a great time! Good luck to DS in the Spelling Bee and his Black Belt test. Hope he gets a win and does his martial arts test well.

Thank you for the birthday wishes! It was a lovely day with lunch with a GF. Had to go to a church meeting in the evening, but they did sing Happy Birthday to me.

Congrats to DD18 on the new job. What will she be doing? That's great that she's wanting to start having a good work ethic. Most kids these days would like to just stay home and let mom and dad do all the work. It's good to see one who wants to get out there and do something!

You have to be really careful sometimes even with legitimate downloads. The other day I got a notice that I needed to upgrade Flash Plus, so I did it and Norton told me it was okay, but as I was installing it, I got 2 notices from my Anti Spyware - StopZilla that they quarantined two virus things and I got another notice about something else today. So even if it looks okay, it can still carry something not so good. Glad you were able to find it and get it off of your computer.

I worked on 2 cards over the weekend and finished one last night. I need to get it up on my blog for the Simply Betty Fan Page Challenge for October. The other one is from my Monthly Challenge Swap.

Morning Fellow Addicts!

Shelly: Oh. My. Heavens!!! What an incredible platter you won!! It is simply gorgeous, and I bet it's even more amazing IRL. I just LOVE traveling on those busses. Aren't they wonderful?

Kelly: Hooray about the great trip you all had and DD's new job is the icing on the cake for all of you! When is your other daughter's first performance in the opera? I love opera, but haven't been to one in years

Lynn: How are the blog issues? Any success? I've been reading about so many other people having problems with their blogs. I was considering trying to change my template, but chickened out. It ain't really broke, why fix it? if you know what I mean

Maxine: Ditto what Lynn said, take it easy and give yourself enough time to fully regain your strength and stamina. We want you back to your full steam in a healthy way! {{Hugs}}

Maggie: I have a good lawyer. Feeling much better about things after meeting with him yesterday. How are all of your fur babies? Healthy & happy I hope.

Friends: I haven't had the time to visit your blogs lately. I'm sorry for neglecting you! I'll get back to normal soon, promise! Thanks for the support and understanding.

Off and running now for the office. Wishing all of you a good day - almost the weekend too. Yay for that!

Hi all!

A quick update on being MIA so much.

My DD went back to school, online classes, but still working full time and she is also studying to take a certification test for her work, so I've been doing some daycare of DGD while she studies. Sometimes at my house, but most often at hers. Needless to say I don't get much/any computer time. I'm so behind in crafting/visiting blogs and barely keeping up with my DT assignments. (I'm seriously thinking of resigning) I do miss my stamps and all of you at SA, but am having so much fun with the grandbaby, who will be a year old next month!

I hope to find a better balance, but in the meantime I'm in snuggle heaven!

Glad to hear that Darlene. It will make all the difference. Fur babies are doing okay although I think Casper may also have some ear mites, but I think I'm going to get some OTC drops and see if I can do him myself without a vet visit. That is just so stressful for him (and me)!

Speaking of buses, my DGD is going by bus to Disneyworld in the Spring I believe for her Choir trip. Her dad is going too. They will be using those nice Coach buses, but she has motion sickness, so not happy about being on the bus for that long. I think they only make one stop between here and there. I have motion sickness too and can't read on a bus or in a car. It would be a very boring trip for me.

Hi Paige! Miss you here, but I know that family does come first. That's great that you DD is going back to school. What kind of job is it that requires certification? Enjoy the time you have with them. It goes by so quickly. Hope you can find that balance and keep up with your crafting.

Darlene, good to see you pop in and sounds like everything is on the right track! I'm not sure about the blogging deal. The last two cards I posted did just fine????? I think it's probably just a day to day type deal with all this technical stuff!

Paige, glad to hear you're doing good too! AND getting plenty of snuggles! Hard to believe she's already almost a year old! Time flies!!!

I had a doc appointment in the city this morning - early! Hate those kind of appointments. Plus, it was with an eye specialist and they ran every test they could on me it seems -and dilated them! I went by myself so it was a while before I was able to drive home and all. It appears I have some pretty dry eye issues so am on prescription drops now - two a day and two of the over the counter ones a day. Not fun!! Gotta keep the eyes working as long as possible though.

I've got three Christmas cards and one autumn card ready to be posted!!!! YEA me! I just hate to put up a bunch of Christmas cards this early but may do it anyway.

Hope everyone else is doing good!

I was crafting yesterday as it rained, but cannot blog one of them as it is a GDT card....

I have been getting outside into the garden and have some vegetables under way, finally!!

Darlene it's good to hear that you have a lawyer you are confident in, and ae feeling somewhat happier about the process.

Missing you Paige, but family most certainly comes first!! - especially when there are baby snuggles involved

Maggie those ear mites sound horrible for the cats - so glad we don't have them here

Happy working Shelly - the darned work really does get in the way of crafting - hope your halloween is fun, and you have safe travel.

Those eye appointments are hard when they dilate your eyes - DH has that on every clinic appointment now...

Kelly I saw the photos of the opera on facebook - looks as though you all had a great time!

Keep crafting girls - and chatting

I hate when they dilate your eyes. First of all I hate anything near my eyes, but I've been learning to put drops in them. My eyes are also very dry, but he didn't give me the prescription drops, just told me the kind to buy OTC. Glad I don't have to have scrips for them.

I need to get some cards on my blog also and get around to visiting. This has really been a busy week, but for sure will get around to visit this weekend. It should be pretty quiet for the most part. I have some friends coming over for dinner on Sunday, but that will be low key.

I even called Customer Support and all they could tell me was they were having technical difficulties! That much I already knew! It took most of the day to get it back up and running. I get all my SCS notifications through my e-mail and I'm just lost without it. I know I can go on SCS and go to my subscriptions but that takes too long.

Busy at work and then I went and walked at lunchtime today. So that makes 3 times this week. That's pretty good for me. Hopefully soon, I'll be doing every day unless it's too cold or raining.

Glad you were able to get some crafting done. I hope to do some this weekend. I'm waiting for the digital images for my next DT cards to do.

The ear mites are a pain, but not serious. Lots of outside kitties get them and they can pass them to each other. I need to remember to get some meds for Casper tomorrow.

Hope everyone is having a good Saturday night!

I got one card made this afternoon - it started out as one thing and ended up as something else though. Still think it's cute. I'm on some kind of a Christmas card roll around here it seems. I think in the last week I've made 6 Christmas cards! I hate posting them this early though........maybe in November. I really need to make a couple of birthday cards though and just haven't done it.

Jeanette, I'm sorry, but I'm still not able to post a comment on your blog. Have you talked to the lady that set it up for you. I think I read on another thread that other people had some problems with blog templates that she set up. I hope you can get it worked out.

Happy SONday! Blessings, all!

Thank you for the comments on Facebook! Dd had such a good time - she just loves to sing and perform on stage, it transports her to a whole new world I really am proud of her and how far she has come (she used to have terrible stage fright!) My son did his best in the Spelling Bee but tripped up on one of the easiest words - he will never, ever forget how to spell canal the rest of his life, LOL!!

Happy birthday to Jeanette!!! I know your day was as special as you are!

I'm a SO JEALOUS of you girls getting cards done, LOL!! I haven't had a seconds free time to craft or blog - I so miss it it! We are just on the go-go-go and I need to dedicate some free time for ME, and getting cards done. I have 3 to make by Tuesday! Yikes! Dh is taking little man out today for some 'manly time' - hee hee! And I'm heading to the Cabana before anyone else needs me for anything!

I know I'm missing a ton so I'll read back up and {{{{{ send hugs }}}}}

Good morning Stamp Addicts!

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.

Kelly, that's too bad about DS missing the word "canal." I'm sure the pressure is great and he was probably nervous. How'd he do with his black belt?

LOL! Lynn that happens to me too. Start with one thing and then it seems it gets a life of it's own and changes up to be something else. I have a bunch of images colored to make Christmas cards, but I haven't gotten to them yet. Hopefully this week. I did get a card up on my blog last night and need to do another blog post today because it has to be linked up by tomorrow.

Is this the challenge that you're on the DT for? Didn't you tell us ages ago that you would have news, but I've never heard it.

Thanks, Maggie! He said he felt confident (another one of his words, spelled correctly!) Go figure! It's always the easy, unexpected ones that get them out, lol. Last year, my friend's 3rd grader had penicillin - what?!! He got out on ........... flies. ROFL! He spelled it flys! Go figure! They had over 60 participants, and went to 48 rounds so I'm super proud of him! Black belt midterms went well, he knew the entire form - I don't get it - I'd be lost on the 3rd move! How these kids can remember all that. ....

That's great about your gds going to Disney World - they have so may performance opportunities there! Then the next day, let the kids run around the park Our chorus goes every year and we have to get a private coach - no way on the planet would the schools allow for a county bus to take them nor would we ride on them with the directors, etc. It's easier to book a private coach and each child pays the split cost.

I'm so glad I went to services last night, I'm EXHAUSTED today!! The puppies keep looking at me like ... uh ... we're ready to go on our walkie! Ay yi yi!

Been watching Dallas get beat in football! It's always a treat to watch Jim while he's watching the game..........He talks to them continually!!! LOL!!

Jeanette, I saw your post while ago - but yep, no place to comment! Glad y'all had a good time and the food looked yummy!

Darlene - Maggie is right..........your blog has gone poof!!!

Kelly - that's really neat about your son! You should be very proud of him. And your daughter too!! Sounds like you have some pretty fantastic kiddos!!!

Maggie - yes, the All Dressed Up DT is the one I'm on. Y'all try to check it out this week because not hardly anyone has entered this challenge - think there are only like 4 or 5 entries. AND they have freebies you can use!

Hope everyone else is having a great Sunday!

Funny - I have just been to Jeanette's blog and commented no problem ...

Lynn it sounds like Kelson watching rugby here - I keep telling him they can't hear him. but he still tells them what they should and shouldn't do - even yelling at times!!

I have just tried your blog Darlene, and even when I goggle you, then go via a link on Wordp[ress I get the wrong site

Great spelling from your son Kelly - spelling was always a weak point of mine... so glad for spell-checker online or you would get some pretty weird words.

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts

I'm back from my AMAZING trip and after two days of being unable to log on to SCS, it looks like things are now in working order again. YAY! I missed all of you so much!

I'm so far behind and have much too much to do this week, so I don't have time to read and catch up. I'm sorry! Have I missed anything important.

I DID SEE SOME FUN BIRTHDAY GREETINGS AS I SCROLLED THROUGH... THANK YOU!

Can someone tell me - is my blog fixed now? Are you able to leave a comment. No, I'm not recruiting comments, but since I could do so all along, I can't tell if leelou has fixed it yet or not. I do know that I've emailed and emailed and emailed her (I want my signature to be tweaked a bit) and am getting absolutely NO response from her. UGH! That's been going on for well over a week now.

Go to Edit Signature and then you just add it like you did your link to your blog.

Jeanette, when I go to your blog, at the bottom of your post where it has "Labels" at the end the labels overlap the comment button, so it negates the comment button and it just takes you back to your blog when I click on that to leave a comment. Sorry. I did hear some negative things about LeeLou recently so I hope she comes back to help you with this.

Thank you, Maggie! I was afraid that was the case, since she didn't change the signature line yet. UGH! I'm really wishing she'd get this taken care of! I'm not too happy with leelou right now.

Morning, girls! Same for me - can't find Darlene's blog - it takes me to a web page. ANd Jeanette's is still stuck in the label so I'm unable to comment there I guess I'm techno challenged! (well, I am ... but .... LOL!!)

Thanks for the words on my son! He's a-okay with it We went into it with a "we are not here to win, but to see what this is all about" approach. I felt SO BAD for some of those kids - they were hysterical!! Like sobbing. Came out crying, parents all teary - seriously, I don't get it. It's too much stress for a child to put that much pressure on them at ........ 8! My son just turned 9 but 3rd grade is usually 8/9!

Visited the blogs and ya'll are just too creative!! And fast! I made 3 cards yesterday while dd18 is away - she's at Disney World with her best friend (and mom & dad!) and hubby took the other 3 out for golfing and dinner

Maxine, I think you're the only one that can leave I comment there! I still can't comment Jeanette - but did love your cards and the bags today!

Thanks Maggie...........I'll go see what I can do. LOVE all the technical stuff! HA!!!!

Still can't find Darlene's blog either - will PM her!

Jeanette, glad you're back and had a great time.

Kelly, I bet it was nice to get some time in the craft room! Know you had fun.

We had to take Jim back to the doc this morning to have the nose checked. All's ok for now but has to go back in 3 weeks. I did manage to run into Michael's for a minute but didn't buy much.

Just a note to let y'all know Darlene PM'd me back while ago and she's fine. She said that it seems her blog was hijacked by another site. She's got a post in to Blogger Help but is having trouble figuring out what to do to correct the situation and may just have to start a whole new blog. Just passing on the word. Think she could use a whole bunch of hugs right now so we'll be thinking positive thoughts for her and hope it's all better soon.


Also, I have a Discussion of the Week! It's late as I'm just now getting back over here.......... But..........We've probably all been making a few Christmas cards throughout the year but when do you get serious and start making these cards - or do you send out Christmas cards? And if so, how many? I saw my first commercial on TV yesterday - for stuff for Christmas! Is this just a little too early for you or not. It's all in the stores already I know. So, let's talk Christmas cards!
