Pia I'm so excited to see her card she made! Make sure you tell her I said thank you! I'm sure I will love it! I have to have some new artwork for the fridge since my little Fairground friends haven't stoped lately to change their pics on the fridge!
Just had a major blow up at dh and the kids. I have had it with them. He took them to Scouts and they hadn't done their homework. It is after 9 and I have a first grader doing his homework. I am pi$$ed off to say the least! My 7th grader is still doing his hw, his bus comes at 6:35am.
At least you are home Nancy! DH brought flowers today, 2 of the boys told him he was late! The boys did the dishes and laundry without me asking. Oldest wrote me a very nice note, it is going in my smash book!
Hi Pia how are you, yes talking to myself again. How is everyone. I had a long day, I am just getting in. I went to work early to help with a group that didn't actually need help. Left work late, grabbed an egg sandwich at dunkin donuts for dinner and then to Boy Scouts.

Sorry to make you talk to yourself Pia! I've just not been up to par myself lately, and have too many things to get done. I used to thrive on chaos but I'm starting to dislike it very much! Charli has started using SCAL too and we have done some online challenges for the chance to win free cut files from different companies. It's been nice to sit and scrap with her. I also ordered a shelf jigger from JoAnn fabrics that holds 6 removeable plastic totes for 12x12 paper. Hopefully, this will help me get the scrap room a little more organized so I have a hideaway spot! Charli worked her room over the last couple days and has a nice scrap area now in her room. I thought she'd quit scrappin with me, but she wants me to go scrap with her in there. Since my scrap corner is in the room beside her it's convenient to grab stuff I want to work on too. I had to go get a new spring for the garage door yesterday, and was able to meet Brandi and CJ for a late breakfast since I had to go through the town she lives in to get to the overhead door company. Little CJ was all smiles and giggles! Well, back to my hectic disaster...I'll try to check in sooner next time!
DH never listens to his vm's on his cell. There was a MSG from 2/9 that we never picked up a high school registration pkt for dd2 so is she coming or not! Eeeerrrrrrr. If I hadn't picked up his phone to listen to a diff MSG that he didn't listen to I never would have heard this one.
Now I have one more thing on plate to deal with. I'm not happy.
Don't you just love it Nancy?! Tomorrow is the blue and gold banquet for Cub Scouts. We are supposed to bring food. DH hasn't told me what yet and he is going out tonight. I am not baking, cooking or anything. I can't wait til tomorrow when he is running around like an idiot with nothing to bring.
Good morning friends. I am still on strike, I still don't think they have noticed. The house is very quiet with out me reminding everyone to clean their messes. I just keep making faces at them, sometimes they actually do the job. I just gently remind them to clean their plate, etc. I am pretty sure no laundry has been put away. Still not sure what we are supposed to bring to the banquet. I do not want to walk in empty handed but I am standing my ground! I still have to cook, I wish I didn't. I just keep cooking weight watcher recipes, they can eat it or not.
I worked on cards last night and hope to continue today. I am only working on Tuesday so I need to figure out what we are doing the other days. I need to buy a new outfit for a fancy dinner we are going to in a few weeks. Here is the menu, it is pricey but his work is paying Dinner :: Grill 23 & Bar :: 617.542.2255 :: Celebrating Over 25 Years as Boston's Premier Steakhouse . We are spending the night in Boston too. I have one dress that is big but I could get away with it in a pinch. I don't wear dressy clothes to work so now is a good time to get something.
I hope everyone has a great day, I will keep you posted.
Just remember that whatever dress you buy can also be used for "formal" night whenever you go on your cruise... A little black dress would be perfect... Bet that would get hubby's attention...
And good for you for sticking to your guns... And as for food tonight, does your local grocery store have a deli??? That's how my sister cooks when she has to bring a dish to a family function... She just takes it out of the to-go container and puts it in Tupperware...
~ Attending DS's basketball games... Season is about over... YEAH!!!
~ We took Mom out for Valentine's because Dad was out of town working...
~ Got DS's haircut (That was a major ordeal )
~ Start the process to refinance our house... We're going from a 30 year at 5.5% to a 15 year at 3%... Our payment will go up about $85 but we'll be saving over $90,000+ in interest and it'll be paid off sooner... YEAH!!!
~ Bought DS a new bedroom set so we had to clean out his room (OMG the kid is a pack-rat, an organized and clean pack-rat, but still a pack-rat)...
~ Went to a dinner/playhouse to see Grease... Excellent show...
~ Stamping 30+ invitations for my parents 50th Anniversary party
And to top it all off, tomorrow isn't a holiday for me...
Hope everyone had a quieter week than I did... I don't like busy weeks... Makes me cranky...
Oh Nancy, I am on strike so if he wants to bring something he needs to do it! If he is too busy for me then I am too busy to take care of him. I take care of everyone in this house without recognition or thanks. I am done. I have been on antibiotics all week do you think one of them asked how I was feeling?!
SUPER Busy week for you! I have tomorrow off and am only working on Tuesday. The boys have no school. I just need to figure out what we are doing all week.
Stick to your guns about food for tonight. Even if he has to run into the grocery or something and grab pre-made food.
I didn't get much sleep last night. DS threw up. Of course it was all over every blanket and comforter and the carpet. Then he threw up again and got his pillow. I am still doing laundry. Then he woke up because he fell out bed and then later he woke because he had to go to the bathroom. He doesn't usually wake me up if he has to go to the bathroom. I guess he was out of sorts from all the other events of the night.
He wants to bring chicken nuggets. We had some in the freezer and I would not let him take them. I know I am being a _itch but he deserves it. He put them back in the freezer. I need to bring something for Lucas so I will bring them but dh doesn't know it. They are already there. It is a pot luck and I just can't show up empty handed. He can sweat it out a little
I am working on income taxes. DH's work made me mad. The entire W-2 is wrong. Last paystub doesn't match W-2. They went to a new payroll system in Sept and I swear they didn't do any parallel testing or anything. I knew when the first new stub came that there was going to be problems. I spent an hour yesterday entering every check on a spreadsheet and the numbers do not add up to either the w-2 or the last paystub. The **** accountant in me. LOL
