Congratulations on getting the move mostly over with, Jacq! Now you can get settled in your temporary digs.

Yes, Valentina is a very pretty name, D. Are you planning to go to Stampfest this coming Saturday (June 29)? Jean is coming over to go. Let us know if we should look for you.

I know you're having a good time with your Mom and sister, Michelle.

Never been to Honeymoon Island, Denise, but it is a cool place as is Caladesi. Wait a minute is Honeymoon is your neck of the woods or on the gulf. I've been to Hontoon Island near blue springs, I guess. Easy to see how they are confused. Honeymoon is the Dunedin one. Go up to Manatee Springs and Dudley Historic Farm State Park. Very nice. Anna Maria Island is a good overnight place. Stay in Anna Maria in one of the island hotels. You can walk to the piers, fish, swim, snorkel. Water is warm and beautiful. Drive down to Sarasota and check out Trader Joe's, Ringling Museum, Ringling House and Circus Museum, Cars of Yesterday. Fun place and great places to eat.

Hi Jacq. Glad the move is almost over. Woohooo

Congratulations on new niece, Dee.

Pat, you are one of the nicest people I know. '

Michelle, hope you enjoyed your family's visit and your turkey leftovers. Keep us updated.

We'll be eating turkey for days! Trying to clean out the fridge and freezer. Other than that, have done nothing to prep for the move so far! Sunny goes home tomorrow and then my mom and I will get busy packing.
Today we're going to take a picnic to the beach. It's only supposed to be 68, so not terribly warm, but better than what they are used to in Oregon!

Are you moving to an apt, Mish, or are you staying with someone? It's nice that you have help to clean out your fridge. Brr, 68 sounds quite chilly to me, but a picnic on the beach is always fun.

Thank you, BF.

Pat, the answer is I'm not sure yet. I have a few options, including renting a new place, but don't want to be locked in to a lease when I'm not sure where the next job will take me. So I am packing stuff knowing that some of it might be in storage for awhile.

My dental office has never given me pie. They haven't ever sung to me either.

Happy birthday, Jean! Hope you've had a fabulous day. Though I have to ask, what are you planning to do with your Beats headphones?

Oh, I don't know, Michelle, I thought I might put them on and spin a few disks at the local. They look really nice in their clamshell, maybe I'll hook them to my belt and just let them dangle, sorta like a chain.

They will allow me to listen to MY music without any rolling of the eyes or leaving the room. Somebody here doesn't care for opera or rock.

Combine the two for rock opera...Queen perhaps? Seems fitting, doesn't it?

What happened to my Texas Grammy post? I know it was up here. Did I upset the masses? It's not here anymore. Anyway, Texas Grammy is a love. So glad to get to meet her. If I said something offensive here, I am truly sorry. (But I don't think I did.)

You definitely didn't say a thing to offend me, Jean! Not at all. I was tickled to meet you!
Now just sitting at the Orlando airport waiting about 3 more hours to fly back to DFW. Glad it's so pretty in here.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! I have safely arrived at mom's house in Keizer. Tomorrow is truck unloading day. Looks like I'll be putting most of my stuff in storage, at least for the short-term. Hoping to head to the beach next week to stay for a bit. I need a little breather after the flurry of packing and moving. Everything has gone smoothly, but for the massive heat wave during our packing and driving. Thankfully, it is much more pleasant here - about 75 with a nice breeze!

Hope you're all having a great day.

Well, I lost my notifications AGAIN!!! Had a great weekend with Jean and her DH, June 28,29,30. Jean and I also got together with some ladies we had taught with a long time ago and it was so good to see them. Then on Sat the 29 we went to Stampfest here. It was fun, but it was a crush and I can only take so much of that kind of intimate contact with strangers, so then we went to lunch. We bought some fun stuff -- I bought stamps mostly and a few embellishments. The best deal we got was on that ribbon system where you roll the ribbon up and put it in little plastic cases. They were 1/2 price. We have both been busy rolling ribbon. Jean's DH did some handyman things around the house -- so helpful. It's always so fun to have them visit.

Since them I have been taxi-ing my mom and brother to doctor's appointments, running errands, and going to school on Thursdays to help in the library. We had our family 4th of July celebration here. I'm really enjoying my badminton game. My sister and niece came over to play tonight.

So glad you are getting a little time to rest and relax, Michelle, after your move.

Hello everyone else!!

Shout out to my peeps. How's everyone's summer so far? 3 more days til the kids go back to mommie dearest's. We've settled in to our temporary abode and developed a routine. I'm tired after work because we have to get up so early and be out of the house by 6a.m. I hear ya Denise, The boys are in camp this week so it wears them out and they go to bed early...Christopher is already sleeping!!

Glad to hear Michelle made it safely to Oregon. Hope you're getting settled. I've gotten a little stamping in here and there. After the boys go home I'll have a little more free (quiet) time.

Well, off to take Piper for a walk. Toodles noodles.

Hi girls. I'm mostly settled in here at mom's beach place and will be staying here most of the time for the next few weeks, at least. I am heading to her regular house this weekend because my sis and I are getting ready for our annual Relay for Life weekend, which is next weekend. Job hunting is going S...L...O...W.... Between all the different places to search and the lengthy applications, it feels like each one is taking forever!
I was going to take a break and do some stamping tonight - I made a point of packing a kit of my tools, some inks, and some other "essentials" including some favorite patterned papers and embellies. So I got everything out and set up tonight and realized that the one thing I don't have is any stamps!!! Will have to find those in storage this weekend. I'm pretty sure I put some favorites in a box to keep with me, but who knows why I didn't actually get them with my other stuff.

Hope you are all well. I'll check in again soon!

Hey Jacqueline,
I'm following in your lead! My sister convinced me to enter some of my cards at the fair. I kind of cheated, though, I just went through my card stash and pulled out a few. I think I had seven that would work for the categories. Wish me luck! The fair is at the end of August.

Well, good for you Michelle! My fingers are crossed...your cards are great so you definitely have a great chance of placing. It's exciting. I didn't enter last year because we had a bunch of stuff going on but I hope to enter again this year. Our state fair isn't until October so I still have time to whip something up. Can't wait to hear how you do.

Some of you saw the news on Facebook, but in case you haven't already, I lost Eliot yesterday. She apparently had a massive blood clot in her spine that blocked blood flow to the lower half of her body. As soon as it happened, I knew something was wrong so I rushed her to the vet, but there wasn't anything they could do. Even though she was an old kitty - 16! - and she was really starting to show her age, it was a very hard day. I am okay today, but it is funny how often I'll go to talk to her or look for. I suspect I will be doing that for awhile.

Oh, Michelle, I told you how sad this news is on Facebook. I know you miss her. Sixteen years is a good long life. Hugs. Big hugs.

Oh, Michelle...I am so sorry and sad for your loss. You know I know exactly how you feel having lost both my kitties suddenly. It did take a long time but I promise it does get better. I don't use facebook so this came as a shock when I popped on here. Sending a great big hug to you!!!

I have no idea why I don't get any notifications anymore, but I'll suddenly realize I haven't heard anything and will check the thread.

So happy you're getting settled, Michelle. Good luck on the job hunt and the fair.. But so sorry to hear about Eliot. Hugs to you.

Glad you're also settled in Jacqueline. How is the progress on the house?

Two weeks left of summer break. My niece Emily just got her first teaching job. So exciting for us all. This week I'm going over to spend some time with my BF because next week I might be helping Emily get her classroom ready, or helping my sister with her classroom because she has a stress fracture in her foot and is supposed to stay off it. I've already put up 2 1/2 bulletin boards (out of 3) so I'm almost ready. Of course I have to put all my furniture back in place. (They move it when they clean the carpet.) But basically I'm almost ready. I'm doing a pirate theme this year. Arrrr!

hi guys!

So sorry again about Eliot Mish...I know how hard that is....

SO glad you are settling in Jacq! Enjoy!

Jean, hope you are feeling better....

Enjoy your last weeks Pat! My kids are!

PS i know i have been MIA a lot here but my disability insurance has been stalking me trying to drop me. They are claiming I shouldnt be disabled because he sees how active I am here on SCS. Active? Really?? One card a week I post these days and chat here when I can. It really sucks, I feel like I'm going through that crap again with the workers comp and disability. Very stressful to say the least. Makes me feel like crap. If they could only be here on days when I lay in bed and count the number of pills I have taken...
{sigh} but anyway.....
We are going to Indian Rocks beach next week....gonna try to lay in the sun and get some stress relief....hope it works!

XOXO

I think it went OK. I thought of about half a dozen things I wish I had said after it was all over. It was pretty quick, about 40 minutes. Apparently these were first interviews and they'll invite a few people back for second interviews next week. So I don't know if I made the cut yet or not. I think it would be a good job, not perfect, but it would give me a lot of chance to learn about stuff besides reporting, and it's a good location (about 40 minutes from my family). I could probably afford to buy a condo or townhouse, but not a single family home, based on the posted salary range. I just want an extra bedroom so I can have a stamp room again.
I stole some of my sister's supplies last night and made a few quick cards for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges. Not my best work, by far, but I can only spend so much time on the computer and I needed a creative break. At least I shook the rust off!

Right now I am hanging out at Starbucks; I should be working on job stuff, but mostly I needed a break from my mom's house. I have been staying at the beach during the week but didn't go this week because of yesterday's interview. Tomorrow I'm heading to a friend's house for the weekend, and then, unless something changes my plan, I'll be heading to the beach on Sunday. I am much more relaxed there and seem to get more done.

Still no word on a second interview. But I did make it to the next step in another job; the next step is an editing test, so I have that scheduled next week. Fun times.
I am headed out this afternoon to spend the weekend with some friends and then hope to head back to the beach to start cranking on more job apps Sunday or Monday.
I'm excited that I am seeing some progress already, but don't want to let up until I have something for sure.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Great progress, Michelle. Good for you! Hi Everybody. Pat left this afternoon. I always feel a little empty when she goes home. We had a lot of fun, though. I'm working on DTGD challenges. We'll see if I have anything left for VSN Mini. D, I wouldn't blame SCS as much as I'd blame FB. Stop telling us you're camping at Disney, riding the rides, etc. Big Brother has big eyes and big ears.
