Trying to convince my lazy butt to get up and moving. Not overly successful so far

Kensley and I slept until 9:20. THAT is really late for her.

Picked up Lisa and the kids around 12:00 and went to the Tree Farm.


Took us about an hour to pick out a tree then spent the rest of the afternoon trimming it.


I bought a small table top tree. Will need to find a small stand tomorrow. The one we have is way too big.

Hi. Checking in from my phone.

Granny, let me know how you and the grands like the movie today.

Miss I, how many licks to get to the middle of the tootsie pop?

Kristi how was Thanksgiving?

Granny, I'm wishing you lived near me to organize my nrw home.

Got to see the great nieces. Such fun!

Have to move out of first storage unit today to second one. Going to measure some things at the house, too.

Love y'all!

I spent last night cleaning and decluttering. Well, mostly decluttering and just putting stuff back where it belongs. And I had to clean off my craft table so I could set up my new Ott light. I LOVE IT! It's a higher wattage and has a bigger shade than my old one, and I definitely need that.

I'm going to continue with the craft clean up tonight, and then do Christmas decorations tomorrow. My Xmas stuff is well organized and easy to get to, since we installed the new shelving units in the basement after the flood in March.

Hello friends! Had a GREAT visit with my cousin. My family said it was one of the best Thanksgivings. Marie was really excited they were coming and Brenda was doing so much cooking. Today I overheard her say that it was a great definition of a Thanksgiving meal as we had recipes from Brenda and some of ours. And we tried something new. (We had turnips AND rutabagas - I usually buy rutabagas but Bill picked up turnips. We loved both). We made turkey soup that turned out perfect! And Brenda made dumplings for the soup last night.

She had told me she wanted to do some stamping. I was excited, but her idea is very different from mine. She does really basic stuff. That was fine. I did a few things for the college kids. My craft room is still clean so I can have fun later this week.

Gobble gobble. Hope everyone is fat from all the turkey. We spent our turkey day at the beach house. Beautiful weather - it was perfect.

That is all.

Wait - no it's not. I really wish my Granny was here right now. Like in a bad way - you have no idea how much I miss her.

Please set up a fund and send her my way, K?

Love to all......gonna go read a book now.

I might have to move into the new house alone. My family has irritated me to the nth degree. Hoping tomorrow is better. I finally have a house and Phil wants to keep the ugly dirty curtains, doesn't want us to paint walls, and wants me to put either fabric from his college or solid maroon. Oh, i can add gold since my college colors were maroon and gold. COLLEGE COLORS? It's not a big deal in the long run, but it's the idea that he isn't considering how i feel or what i want at all. I hate that he's a spoiled only child sometimes.

Vent over.

Lori - I'm sorry Phil is being so difficult. I can't believe he doesn't want to paint before you move in. I wonder why? Just too much work? HUGS. You can vent anytime.

Just wait until Phil goes to work, then do whatever you want. It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

I'll either donate to your Britney Spears fund or Granny's Travel Fund. But not both.

Scratch that. I will not donate to your Britney Spears fund. lol

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is having a good day. I've been lazy and enjoying the quietude.

Dad just called to say that he heard from my brother and they've been sick with really bad stomach/intestinal stuff all weekend! Dad called to see if I had the same thing (in case it was something we ate on Thanksgiving). Thank goodness I haven't had anything like that. Sounds to me like maybe it originated with the oldest grandson (probably picked up something at school), and since the kids stayed overnight there was plenty of time for the bug to get spread around. I'm thankful I didn't catch it!

Today was a good one! A great group of kids for Sunday School and we had a dinner at church tonight. Sang carols afterwards. It was nice. A small group because it was only decided to do this a few weeks ago.

When we moved into this house, we didn't paint before we moved in because we didn't have time. But we did start painting pretty quickly afterward.

Agreed--start with a clean slate. Even if you like the color, you probably have no idea how long it's been since the walls were painted, carpets were cleaned, etc. And it's much easier to paint when the house is empty.

If (or should I say when) you do this, are you going to have them professionally done?

I got some laundry going and am in the process of dusting and vacuuming the living room before I start putting out Christmas decorations.

I finished my Thanksgiving leftovers yesterday, so tonight it was tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich for supper.

I wish I had looked more closely at the ads this morning. Target has a "Mad Men" Christmas CD! It includes the good old tunes like White Christmas and The Christmas Song (but alas, not my favorite ), sung by the likes of Mel Torme, Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Mathis, etc. Plus the Mad Men theme song (which isn't Christmasy at all) and a song from one of the episodes which was also a 60s song originally.

I will definitely be buying it.

I couldn't wait. Target was open until 10:00, Kohl's until midnight. We have a new Kohl's on our side of town just a couple of blocks from Target. So I went and did a little "Christmas shopping." I got a Shark hand-held vacuum (Dust Buster type) for mom and me, new bathroom rugs for the house, and a "Malt Shop Christmas" CD for Mom. It has fun Christmas songs by Brenda Lee, Chuck Berry, and other 50s-60s stars.

And I got a new pillow and the Mad Men CD for myself. And some Ritter Sport bars (German brand of candy bar).

The garbage can is going to be full tomorrow because I am throwing out one of my pillows and the old bathroom rugs.
