I know Granny & Caro saw this, but whenever we see "Breaking Dawn' on an ad, we always think of Breaking Wind. When I friend posted, "Breaking Dawn is da bomb," I immediately thought, "Breaking Wind is da bomb." That's for sure! LOL!

Need to skeedaddle to bed.

Hugs!

AFTERNOON.

Miss I....Glad you enjoyed your night out.

Ryder....I know,I should have thought to check. After all I sit around here all day doing nothing. You would think I could get off my backside and check the mail....LOL

The movie was AWESOME! It was a bit mixed up. We thought we would see Part I at 10:00 then Part II at midnight. It was Part II at 10:00,so we were heading home about the time we would have just started watching.

DOWNSIDE is I had a sweet tea AND a COKE thinking I would be up until 2:30AM. Took a bit to wind down when we got home.

Need to go change clothes and put on my face. Cathi and I are going to give blood.

I am cracking up!

I have on NPR (National Public Radio), half-listening to Science Friday while I work. They're talking to some scientist about double helix/genetic stuff (like I said, I'm only half listening). You can tell the scientist is elderly, and apparently years ago there was some conflict between him and a female scientist about the work they were doing.

Anyway, some woman called into the show and plain as day said that this man was a "chauvinist pig," she was mad about the way he treated this other female scientist 50 years ago, it still makes her mad today, and she ended "And you are a doddering old coot."

Honest, I laughed out loud. She sure told him!! And on national radio.

Have fun giving blood! Hope they give you a yummy cookie.

Afternoon! Today was a day of errands and trying to fit everything else in along the way! Bill and I finally went and had our pictures taken for our driver's licenses. Mine had expired in April (but I had renewed it and had the paperwork I needed), Bill's in September. So we got that taken care of. Then headed to the bank to deposit a check, then paid Andy for the work done on our van. Home, laundry, lunch. Julie's friend was here so we decided we'd go to the Mary Kay open house tomorrow. Well, friend developed a migraine so went home to get meds and take a nap. So, off we went to the Open House! Now I'm home again and plan to stay put! Working on more laundry. I hope to get the flannel sheets on the bed tonight. I hope, I hope.

NO more Nutter Butters. Keebler stepped in and told them if they would not use any other brand they would donate all treats.

NICE way to BRIBE a BIG tax write off.

Hey Jo Jo!

I had to go to the bank to deposit a check today, too. Remember my watercolor class that was cancelled? I *finally* got my refund--over 2 months later.

I've been keeping a headache at bay all day today and still managed to work, but I think I'm going to call it a day and get off this computer and away from this fluorescent light. CYL

Refunds NEVER come quickly. We just got a "gift" for adding something to our cable/phone/internet thing. We made these changes in August/September.

Hope your headache goes away, Miss I. I have had less since I've been on the bp meds. I still think it is strange since my bp wasn't that high and that didn't happen until recently. I've had these headaches for years and my bp was on the low end then. I don't know. Maybe my body is cycling through something! One can only hope!

Afternoon! Another beautiful fall day here. I was up early, as in before 7:30! Something must be wrong with me. LOL

I went to a couple of craft shows this morning in a small town west of here. I didn't buy anything but I saw my cousin (the one who made the pumpkin I bought earlier this fall) and one of her granddaughters who was "helping" her (the granddaughter is 7 I think). Stopped at the grocery store on the way back into town and ran into my brother's stepson, wife and kids.

Went to Menards (home improvement store) and bought myself a Christmas tree! It's a 7' "skinny" tree, pre-lit. I may get it set up this weekend yet.

Talked to a friend and my mom on the phone when I got home. Now I don't know what I'm going to do. I should probably do some law files.

My new Christmas tree is assembled! I still need to "fluff it up" some.

It's a pre-lit tree. Naturally, one section of it wasn't lighting up. And naturally, the bulb that was the culprit was one of the last ones I checked, at the very BACK of the tree. (I swear the Chinese who make these things do this on purpose.) The bulb was broken but the tree comes with several replacements so it was an easy fix once I found it.

I don't know if I'll get it decorated tonight, because that involves digging storage containers out of the basement. I don't want to start that process now. But maybe tomorrow.

Went out tonight to Cheeseburger and Paradise with one of my friends from work. Yesterday while we were at work, she got a call from her DD's hubby. To let her know that her first grandbaby girl had been born a few minutes before.
So we went out to celebrate the arrival of the baby. I saw a pic this morning and the baby is CUTEEEEE!!

I like sweet taters, too. But if I can only vote for one, I'd go for old-fashioned mashed.

I haven't put up a Christmas tree since I lived in Milwaukee, which was 10 years ago. Well, I guess last year I set a small tabletop tree in the front window. It already had lights on it from a previous year, but I didn't put any ornaments on it. It looked kinda pathetic.

Picture of new tree, not decorated yet. I still have a couple of sections that I need to "fluff up" a little and it looks like I need to rearrange some of the lights near the top so they're more evenly distributed. The tree is 7 feet tall.

For your sake, I hope you're having "fun" getting all of your chores done today. When do you leave?

Is Cheeseburger and Paradise one of Jimmy Buffet restaurants?

Afternoon! Had another great morning at church. A friend insisted on teaching for me so I could go into church. What a blessing!

Now I'm working on laundry, finished ironing and (hopefully) spend some time working in the kitchen. I have little things that need to be taken care of and want to clean the lower cabinets. Don't know that it will all happen, though! Bill is vacuuming for me because if I vacuum and iron, my back will not be happy. He said he'd wash the kitchen floor too! Woo hoo!!!

It is just the four of us for Thanksgiving so the house doesn't have to be perfect - not that it is anyway. But my parents are coming the Monday after so I'll make sure the bathrooms are clean by then. The guest room is basically done, but I have some blankets that were in a cedar chest and have a really odd smell. I usually love the smell of the cedar, but this doesn't smell good. I'll wash all that, open a window, use febreeze or light a candle and all will be good.

I'm thinking we aren't going to see Granny here today. And if we do, we'd better make sure she did all she needed/wanted to do!

Miss I - the tree looks lovely. I think trees with just lights are pretty as well. I'm very glad you are doing a tree this year. You made me happy. Isn't that all that is important?

So we went out to celebrate the arrival of the baby. I saw a pic this morning and the baby is CUTEEEEE!!

I haven't put up a Christmas tree since I lived in Milwaukee, which was 10 years ago. Well, I guess last year I set a small tabletop tree in the front window. It already had lights on it from a previous year, but I didn't put any ornaments on it. It looked kinda pathetic.

Picture of new tree, not decorated yet. I still have a couple of sections that I need to "fluff up" a little and it looks like I need to rearrange some of the lights near the top so they're more evenly distributed. The tree is 7 feet tall.

Going to look GREAT! Glad you put it up.

Nails done. Had to let them cut my fingernails back a good bit because I have been rough on them lately.

Dishes done.

Most clothes washed,dried and put away.

Maybe 3/4 finished packing.

Poppa is set on groceries.

House is as clean as it is going to get but you all know it really did not need cleaning to anyone but me....LOL

Flight does not leave until 11:30AM but with it being the Monday before Thanksgiving I am going to get there fairly early.

I am doing Park and Fly. More $$ than airport parking but way less hassle.

Karlie is spending the night with Kamryn so they have 2 bathrooms to get ready in,instead of ALL 3 of us TRYING to get ready in one.

That way I can get ready and then pick them up on the way to the airport. Only a few minutes out of the way.

Don't know that it will all happen, though! Bill is vacuuming for me because if I vacuum and iron, my back will not be happy. He said he'd wash the kitchen floor too! Woo hoo!!!
