I really truly adore you all. Even Amber.
Thank you for everything. Sharing, lessons, laughs, recipes, books, grammar, motivation, support, donations...the list goes on and on. Kinda like Jane.

Love you guys!
Aren't you a little comedian!

O.M.G.

Just remember, the game means very little. The cheerleaders are what people really come to see.

DH and I were both raised in homes where only the living room/dining room/kitchen area were heated, and both of our fathers were quite adamant about the thermostat settings. DH's family still don't have the heat on until evening; my dad "let" my mom have the furnace on during the day, but it was never very warm. Sometimes after school you'd find my brother and I at opposite ends of the furnace with our feet up to the only two heat grates in the house.


The kids have just gotten used to what we're used to, I guess.
I grew up in a house with only heat in the main living area. A glass of water would turn to ice in my bedroom overnight.

I keep the house on 66 and that's a struggle for me. I get cold. I open all the shades and let the sunlight in during the day and that usually warms the house to about seventy and keeps it there all day without the aide of the furnace. We have a separate heat in the addition because our furance and AC weren't big enough to support another 500 sq ft. Its set at 68.

Caught up! You guys were pathetically quiet.

I ran the 5k Thursday morning, went to dad's for lunch and then made sweet love to my Black Friday ads until about midnight. Left home about 245am and shopped all night and day. I picked up quite a few good deals and was pretty pleased with myself. I still have a lot to get, but my budget for friday was pretty small. I knew I'd have to go back out again later.

We had Thanksgiving with DH's family on Sunday. Kill me now.

Back to school for the kids yesterday. Long frustrating day. So glad today is better.

DD and I have a meeting tonight with the high school cheer coaches about requirements for next year for girls in order to try out for hs. Currently a competition ready standing back handspring is the requirement. Word is they want to up it to a double back handspring and possibly a standing tuck. Ouch. DD does not have her standing tuck and I'm not sure she can have it by April tryouts. The good news is that NO ONE has a solid standing tuck, so she has just as much chance as getting it as some and way more chance of getting it than those who are behind her in tumbling. She can do a running round off triple back handspring, standing doubles and anything below that. She can't do any tucks yet. Her focus has been on running tumbling and these coaches apparently want standing tumbling. Super. Could have been working on standing tumbling had we known. *sigh*

Either way, I think DD can make it. I know she is going to be crushed if she can't. I'm gonna bring some popcorn and sit back and watch the action tonight while all the other parents come unglued. LOL

I used to tell people that if I ever got bad insomnia, I'd find golf on TV, and read computer manuals.

I have no desire to do the things around the house that need doing.
I did however just post one of the fundraising donations to my site. $35 from my PC rep which was a match to the $35 PC corp donated. That check is in the mail to AWBC already.

DH's grandmother died on Thanksgiving. We, of course, cannot afford to go to Belgium for services. I find it odd that a couple of family members are going to services. I mean, really...you didn't go see her when you knew how ill she was, but you'll go now?? I don't get it. Hopefully, a service will be held in the states and we can swing it, financially, to go. It will likely be in Peoria in January, Marge. Maybe we could do lunch or something. Its likely that just DH and I will go and make it a super duper quick trip up, overnight and then straight back home.

Amber, I'm sorry about DH's grandmother.

When my dad died, my mom actually thought I wouldn't come for the funeral because it was okay with her if I didn't. It meant more to her that I visited him twice the summer before he died, and her attitude always was, that's the time to see them. So I'm with you on that....

Amber, my sincere condolences to your family.

Funny what you said about visiting when someone's alive--my sister always says we should give people flowers when they're alive to enjoy them rather than waiting until they're dead.

When I am old and presumed to be dying soon, I would much rather see the people who love me than that they spend $$$ to come spend time with the rest of the family without me...

We've lived many years separated from family on both sides and I'm so glad we made our last move to live near my parents so that my kids could get to know my dad more before he died. I would have hated to bring them to a funeral without feeling that they got to know him other than two 2-3 week visits per year...

That said, I will not feel sad if DH's parents die before my children can see them again. It is horribly expensive to travel to Europe from the US (we're seeing ~$4K just for flights for next fall...) and as much as we would have liked to visit more, well, it's just not possible.

And it wasn't possible for you guys to visit Belgium, Amber, and I think going to the memorial in IL (?) is a lovely way to show support for the family without destroying your family budget. No elder person I know would want you to damage your family's budget by spending on a funeral...

I need to catch up on NCIS before I watch current series... I watched it via Netflix two summers ago (?) in SD (we don't have any other TV in SD - just online) and I, for some reason, thought that it ended then...

So I have to catch up from where I was before I watch anything else. But I can't remember where I was. So I have to spend time watching shows in order to remember where I was.


LOL.


I still like NCIS. I still want to watch NCIS. But I haven't spent time figuring out where I am in NCIS watching !!!

Thanks for the condolences. I will keep my mouth shut about the family members going to Belgium for services, but I do find it so stupid. The poor woman has been failing for nearly a year. We went four days without hear from anyone about her because she had had a stroke in her flat and laid there. No one jumped on a plane to go see her then.

I'm not a fan of funerals or lay outs at all. I don't really *get* them, but that's on me. I still go when I feel its necessary to respect the family of the deceased, but pretty much have zero desire to have one myself. I don't have religious tradition when it comes to death, so I don't really feel like there is anything I need to do to save my soul or whatever.

DH, the kids and I will all be donating our bodies to scientific research after any viable organs are harvested. I have no issues with this, though it is not well received by my family. They know I feel this way and deal with it, but they think its weird.

There are exceptions...if I die and the children prefer to bury me, then they may. If DH dies and the children prefer to bury him, then they may. If the children express a desire to have something else done with their bodies, we will honor that. Basically, the children have veto power over our decisions regarding death rituals. Organ donation, however, is non negotiable. At this point, DD being the only one old enough to understand, agrees with us.

I just think that the funeral and services and rituals regarding the body are things we do for the living and not the dead. So, to me, I find little reason for them. They're expensive and in the end, it didn't make the fact that we lost a loved one one damn bit easier. If my mother knew her remains were sitting in a $5000 casket buried underground, she would kill my father. If she had any clue what kind of stone he purchased for their burial site, she would absolutely have his hide. She didn't like to spend money without a purpose. She and I are a lot alike in that regard.

Dad bought several plots beside each other when Mom died. When I told him I wouldn't be buried there, he was not happy. I told him not to waste his money buying land that might never be used, but he did it anyway insisting that I would change my mind if the time ever came. Whatev.

I wonder how other people feel on this subject. I've heard several people mention eternal damnation if the body wasn't properly cared for after death. I figure I've sealed the deal on that anyway, might as well go ahead and do what I want with my body.

Morning
Kids off to school and I'm going to enjoy a clean livingroom, Christmas music, present wrapping and some reading. Then, later when the kids are home and the house is noisy and hectic I'll bother cleaning the kitchen and doing laundry

When dh was diagnosed, we had our wills drawn up and specified we wanted cremated.

I've always hated what my m-i-l did after f-i-l died. He had put in his will that he wanted his body to go to science, but she buried him instead. To me, that was a huge sign of disrespect.

I won the Powerball!

I never buy lottery tickets, but decided to today.

Yep. I won.

Matched one number. I won $4.

You guys are always listing what you do during the day, so I think I'll post my "today."

Showered then left for the grocery store.

Came home, put stuff away then started dinner in the crockpot--beef for French dip sandwiches, a request from hubby.

Took dh for neurologist appt. Spent over an hour waiting for appointment and fifteen minutes with the doctor. All told, round trip, waiting and actual appointment, 2 hours.

Came home, fed the cats, washed the dishes and started the BBQ sauce for tomorrow's visit with dh's sister.

While BBQ sauce was simmering, I grated cabbage for slaw.

Played with new Acrylic Silks I got in the mail. (They're GOR-JUS!)

Had dinner.

Cleaned up and did dishes again.

Watched NCIS and Survivor.

Put BBQ on to get it started for tomorrow.

Baked cake.

And now I'm off to do the dishes--again.

Tomorrow I'll dust and whip up the dressing for the slaw and ice the cake. Dh gets to vacuum since he likes it so much.

OMG, RS - some days I'm happy if I manage the #1 on your list (take a shower)... You make me tired, woman.

Hey, would you share your French dip recipe? My kids like it and I'd love a crockpot version.
