But your post made me giggle thinking about it.

FINALLY!!!

I've had a hair on my chin that I could feel but could not get a hold of to pull out (with tweezers). I *finally* got it tonight.

Don't feel sorry for it. It will be back in another week or so.

I couldn't see the darn thing because it's blonde, I guess. But it's a stiff one (BCBW--lol) so you'd think it would be easier to grab hold of. I've probably pulled that hair out a hundred times already and it just keeps coming back.

Did I tell y'all that I'm definitely going to Kansas City next weekend? I'm leaving on Thursday and will visit my friend Sandy. I can't get there too early, because she is working on Thursday. So I'm trying to decide how and where I want to kill time once I'm on the road.

Option #1: Tanger Outlet--less than an hour from me --OR--

Option #2: Archiver's store and/or big mall in West Des Moines (2 hours from me), followed by lunch at some place like P.F. Changs.

I may even have time to do both. If I leave on time, I could have as much as 3 hours to kill.

I'd do both of those things, Miss I! Sounds like fun!!!!

I have a bunch of those hairs. I really have a lot and it is starting to bother me big time. I feel like a man. Lots of hair - some of it blonde, but still stiff and nasty. I honestly don't know how to get rid of them. I've tried wax, Nair and tweezing. I hate it.

I think I now tweeze more hairs BELOW my nose (i.e., mustache and chin), than above my eyes. It's just a part of getting older. My mom has them, and I remember Grandma had them. One time when she was in the hospital, she asked if I had a pair of tweezers on me because she had a hair that was bothering her. (Unfortunately I didn't.) Now I know how she was feeling.

I just keep after them--every day practically.

Caro - MEN!

Morning! I woke up a few times during the night because I heard something unusual- rain! Actually the unusual part was the window it was hitting. Usually it hits the back of the house, but it was hitting the window next to my head. I'm glad it rained!

Julie's off to her first class in a few minutes.

You mean now that he no longer thinks we're axe murderers...

Not that we're NOT axe murderers. We've just CONVINCED him that we're not.

Hola! I need to go back a page & read about the meeting with Granny & Caro. I bet it was so much fun!

Miss I, Kristi & I are confirmed axe murderers. SEveral years ago someone posted a riddle & you had to figure out who the murderer was .She & I got it really fast, plus we'd talked about our Pampered Chef knives so much that we were outed! LOL!

Hedgie, read your post the other day but didn't have time to reply. I'm so glad you get to see your dd soon! That will be such a wonderful treat for you both.

Hairs: yes, I am a nanny goat, too. Those little hairs drive me crazy! tweeze, tweeze, tweeze!

How is everyone feeling today? I think ragweed is starting here. I need to look at the allergen charts & see. I know it's one of my worst allergies. That and our "mountain cedar" which is really juniper. Making sure I take zyrtec.

Have a great day ladies!

I was thinking the same thing about Granny. I'll stand next to you. I'm about 5'7.5". Then you won't feel AS tall!

I think when you are 5' tall you have to have SOMETHING long about you, even if it's just a LONG shot!

I tease my friend who's about 4'11" that she's freakishly short & she says I am freakishly tall. We can do that with each other & still be friends.

My girls are now 5' 3.5" & 5' 5.5" tall! Bethany, who wasn't even ON the growth chart for height for several years, is now as tall as my mom! CRAZY! And she's still got some growing years, based on what I've heard about when you keep growing. Natalie WANTS to be taller & still is growing, so she might be. She was so much bigger than Bethany was at each stage that we were sure she'd eventually tower over B. Nope.

I better scoot for real. TTYL!

RE: 2013 BCBW Red Panties Road Trip

For your consideration: If people are serious about meeting at Joanne's next summer, the dates would be around/about July 29-31. That's just a guess, based on when my work meetings in DC are normally held. Unfortunately, my meetings are always over the weekend, meaning anything I want to tack on afterward (or before, but I know I would prefer after), is going to be on a week day.

Nothing is set in stone of course, but just in case you want to mark your calendars...

Kaiti is 5' 3.5" also. At 17, I think she's pretty much done growing, much to her dismay. For awhile there, she was always one of the tall girls, but now she's on the shorter end. Ben is 5' 6.5", which makes him officially taller than me. And, at 15 1/2, he's got some growing to do still. He's the opposite of Kaiti - he was always on the smaller end of the spectrum. It'll be interesting to see how tall he winds up being. The shortest male on my side of the family is 6' 1"; the tallest male on his dad's side is 5' 9". I'm rooting for my genes to dominate

I am planning on coming. I was going to check on flights so I could see how much $$ I needed to "put back" every month. Poppa will need my car to "haul" kids so I really need to fly in. That will probably be the first week of school if they stay on the same schedule as this year.

My oldest brother is at least 6'5". He takes after my mom's dad. My grandpa was about 6'5" and all of his siblings were tall and lanky, too. My mom has a cousin who was exempted from military service (during the draft!) because he was TOO tall. He's 6'9" or something like that. The army probably didn't have any pants with long enough legs.

My other brother is "only" about 6'1", on a good day. He takes after Mr. Wig.

You gotta be at least 6'3" to be considered tall in my book. LOL

That's kind of why I threw it out there.

I also assume some/all of us will need to stay in a hotel, so as not to overburden Joanne and her family. I know they have a nice guestroom, but there's just the one.

ARGH!! My main work program won't print anything! I can see the documents on screen but when I try to print them, all I get are blank pages.

Mondays suck.

Afternoon.

Julie's first day went well. It is tomorrow she is more worried about. New campus, a little larger (we think), but I'm sure she will be okay. She obviously has anxiety issues, too, but she handles them better than Marie does. And in a more quite, refined way.

Ran some errands which included getting gas. It was $3.79 for regular. The station where I got gas is usually one of the less expensive. Their high test (can't think of the correct term now) is $4.09. This is ridiculous!

I do have only one guest room and remember I have three dogs and at least one annoying daughter!

I filled up my tank when I got back from D.C. and it was $3.59 then. It was cheaper before I left but I still had 1/4 of a tank and didn't have time for any extra errands before I left.

I suppose this hurricane is going to cause the price to jump up again. Over the weekend it was still around $3.55-3.59 here (for ethanol blend; higher for premium). Today may be a different story.

Did Julie transfer schools or is she just going to a different campus of the same college?

Tell her "Miss Iowa says you'll do fine." Because she will.

"Premium" - that is the word I was looking for!

Julie is going to two campuses - the same as last year and then this one. What is annoying to me is that she attends Delaware County Community College. Chester Co., where we live, does not have a community college. There are more campuses in Chester than in DE. Yet, we have to pay the "premium fee" because we aren't Delco residents. Granted, it is still cheaper than almost any college, but still!!!

I am exhausted. I cannot keep my eyes open. It is 6 p.m. Probably not a good idea to go lay down, but I cannot stay awake. I have made meatloaf for the girls for dinner (Bill is out of town) and they will make the veggies and mac-n-cheese they want with it. I told them they are responsible for cleaning up, too. I ate very poorly today and am mad at myself. I am still up two pounds from vacation and that was after hitting a plateau BEFORE vacation. I know I need to up the physical activity.
