JoJo, I'm assuming your and Bill's cell phone numbers are the same? Mine is.

Sometime after I get there, I'll call and let you know what my room number is. It may not be until Saturday. I'll leave a message if I don't catch you.

Hopefully, the weather forecast will change again to better weather!

Marie ended up not grooming those dogs today. The lady called to tell us they are being treated for fleas - and recently. Better not to deal with THAT in our house with all these animals. I remember the last time we had fleas - it was with our first two dogs. And it was just before Marie's Christening so we were having people here. UGH.

Julie has spent the day creating goodies to send to her friend who is at college in ID. She makes something new and creative every month. Julie is a good friend!
Sounds like she's already found out.

FLEAS!?! No way!

Hurray for Julie!

Busy day here, too. One of our neighbors stopped by to ask if Marie could groom her dog. She just adopted a Grand Pyrenees She just got her from a rescue today. Marie said that is the dog that takes the longest time to dry. It is also the most expensive dog to groom! She's going to attempt it tomorrow.

Aloha from Reno!

We're supposed to be here celebrating our "dateiversary" but I'm having a horrible time. Will explain later. I just can't wait to go home

I survived our little weekend trip. Nothing horrible happened; it was simply a case of having Becky with us when she was in one of her "I need to be the center of the universe" moods and I was sick and tired of being shoved (sometimes literally) to the background. Dinner Saturday night just about tipped me over. I'll spare you the whiny details, but my presence was apparently unnecessary, and the two times I left the table briefly, they polished off all of the shared food, and seemed genuinely surprised that it bothered me.

So happy to be home.

We had Ben's girlfriend over for dinner last night. I had met her a couple of weeks ago, before they were "official" (or at least before he admitted it). She's a very sweet nice girl, and she played well with our crazy little family. My mom joined in the dinner as well. Hopefully the girlfriend sticks around for awhile!

Kristi - so sorry about your weekend trip. Marie can do that to me if she is in a mood. We literally try to avoid certain times of the month - if you know what I mean.

Bill and I are home. We had a lovely visit. I hope Miss I thinks so, too. She is much better at describing things - so I'll let her share what we did.

I have not slept well (like in many hours . . . ) the last two nights. I am going to head to bed shortly.

Praying for all those affected by the storms. I didn't find out about them until midnight when I was up because I couldn't sleep.

Howdy duty! Wifi is acting a bit better today so thought I'd try to come on here. I do FB from my phone sometimes, but I like to really catch up with y'all. Though I don't know that I remember all I read!

Did I miss the big weekend with Miss I & Jo Jo? Pictures please!


Granny, I'm sure whatever you were doing it was busy & hard work!


Kristi, that stinks about Becky. So glad you are home and that Ben's girlfriend is sweet. I didn't date a lot, but I still remember the weird feeling of being at the boyfriend's house with all the family. Since Phil's an only child, it wasn't nearly as intimidating meeting his folks. Besides, MIL was so thrilled that Phil had a potential wife, finally, that she was super friendly. If only we'd known....LOL!


Jo Jo, you know your twin here doesn't sleep well ever, either. No fun!


Miss I, how is your weather? Are you safe?


Caro, happy belated birthday on here!


Hugs all around! Phil is home for lunch. He works 1 minute from here. Well, more like 5 when he has to pull out in the morning & there is lots of traffic.

Afternoon. I got a fairly good night's sleep last night, but took a nap today. Slept for two hours! I was shocked and didn't believe the clock was right!

Lori - I forgot my camera. It was sitting right next to my phone and of course I didn't grab it - Dork moment?

Miss I - did you sleep well? I hope so. It was nice seeing you!!!! Today is much cooler and chillier. I'm glad we had the nice weather yesterday.

I'm texting with a friend. She was worried about her 11 year old son. She called the doctor, had him see a psychiatrist and they want him to go to an hospital facility. She is so upset. And her husband didn't go with them Please send prayers and good thoughts for them. They are a great family.

Morning (five more minutes).

I told myself I wouldn't get on the computer until I finished two things. Yeah, right. Now I'm chatting with my cousin, confirming our Thanksgiving plans. Well, I needed to do that, too. AND I had to email some stuff for church. So, I guess I am doing something.

Hope you are all having a good Wednesday!

Hola!

Cold and rainy day here. I slept hard last night and have kind of a headache. But at least two beds in this house beat what they had in the hotel by a mile. (The hotel bed felt like sleeping on lumpy mashed potatoes. )

JoJo!

Look what the office found out today:

GMU will close the Mason Inn Conference Center and Hotel and convert the space, President Angel Cabrera said Monday.

In a message to the George Mason University community Monday, President Angel Cabrera said the college will likely be closing the Mason Inn Conference Center and Hotel on its Fairfax campus, little more than three years after its much-lauded opening, the Washington Business Journal said Tuesday.

However, the announcement could be good news for students and would-be students.

Cabrera said the Inn, with 148 hotel rooms, a spa, a full restaurant, and meeting spaces, has been losing around $2 million per year since it opened in 2010, after the university invested $50 million to build and open it.

However, over the past 12 years, student demand for on-campus living space such as dormitories has roughly doubled, Cabrera said—from about 3,000 students wanting to live on campus to about 6,000.

Therefore, Cabrera said the school will convert the hotel and meeting space into a combined residential, dining and instructional space.

The conversion is expected to be complete by the end of the next school year.

Oh my! May explain some of the things you were talking about (with the food and such). And if they may more space for students, that is the way to go.

I actually didn't have a problem sleeping in the bed there. Some of the beds at hotels are way too firm for me. My mom would like those. I think she would sleep on concrete if it wasn't cold. LOL

And on the news today: The Obamas and the Clintons laid a wreath at JFK's grave today! I'm glad they didn't have that scheduled for Monday.

Even that's too firm for me.

It's not that the Mason Inn bed was too soft, but something about it didn't feel right to me. Like I said, it felt lumpy. I wonder if it was a pillow top? I couldn't tell and didn't investigate. lol

Tiffany (marketing gal at work who negotiated the contract for our meetings), said they gave us a really good deal. And the space was perfect for our needs. So I'm sure they would have considered using it again but now it looks like that won't be possible. The place was pretty busy last weekend with that other conference (which was bigger than our group), a wedding reception Saturday night, and at least a couple of birthday parties on Sunday. Based on that you got the impression that it was a busy place.

P.S. They did get the billing snafu straightened out--on the 2nd attempt.

And then, since I had to give them my email so they could send me a copy of my paid bill, I received an auto-generated survey. I filled it out and dinged them on my cold dinner Friday night, and the one salad/one dressing.

BIG NEWS in our paper today: We're getting a Hobby Lobby!

And a Home Goods Store. And a Shoe Carnival.

They're going into the shopping center that currently houses a Kmart (which is in the process of closing right now), our drivers license office, a Chuck E Cheese, and some other smaller businesses.

They will have to do a lot of remodeling so none of the new stores will be open until 2015 it sounds like.

This new Hobby Lobby will be super close to our Michaels--just several hundred yards away.

P.S. And guess where all of these are? That's right--all the way on the other side of town, where I complain about having to go for everything. LOL

I was on the website when we got home Monday night. I saw that they were going to have that area closed. I, too, am glad we weren't there that day! Although they didn't give the reason - just an 'event'.

Now you have will have a store I haven't heard of - Shoe Carnival. But YAY on the others. I wish we had a Hobby Lobby near by. Our closest is about an hour away - but it IS on the way to the campground in the Poconos where we meet my cousin!

A while ago we started getting ads for Shoe Carnival in our Sunday paper, even though the closest one is about 30 miles away. Before that, I had never heard of them either. I've never been to their store so I don't know what they're like or what brands they carry.

Speaking of shoes, here's a link to the black ones I was wearing last weekend. Heel height is 1 and a quarter inches. And now they're on sale!!

They're going into the shopping center that currently houses a Kmart (which is in the process of closing right now), our drivers license office, a Chuck E Cheese, and some other smaller businesses.

They will have to do a lot of remodeling so none of the new stores will be open until 2015 it sounds like.

This new Hobby Lobby will be super close to our Michaels--just several hundred yards away.

P.S. And guess where all of these are? That's right--all the way on the other side of town, where I complain about having to go for everything. LOL
I feel like all I've done is driven back & forth across town for the past 2 weeks. Oh, wait, that IS all I've done! LOL! That's cool about HObby Lobby! I love ours. We have several in SA. They had never been near Michaels until last year when they put a Michaels in a center with HL. NICE!!!

Our K-Mart is closing an a Hobby Lobby is going in. It is about 5 miles down the road. The closest one now is maybe 15. It will be with a mile of Michael's.

K-Marts here are obsolete here, where I live. I loved K-Mart.

Jo Ann Fabric is struggling, not doing all they seem to advertise they do??
JMO.. Ours is not up to the level of other stores.

We have smallish artsy craftsy stores.. with super instruction.. in art.. But--
above my head.
I plan to take the classes but will get my gear from the internet...

If/when this Hobby Lobby goes in, we'll have a JoAnn's, a Michaels, and a HL within a mile (or less) of each other. The competition will be good.

They also announced on the news tonight that plans to demolish/renovate the mall on our side of town can now go forward. JCPenney was delaying it because their contract with mall owners stipulated that they had to approve of any changes. Apparently now they have, so after Christmas the work will begin.
