Wrose! Thank you for my gorgeous card! Is that DSP in the background or did you stamp it?

Did you get the Aviary card? You made me buy that set, you know. Well your blog did.

That is a Technique Junkies technique called Bands of Color and you lay down strips of torn paper (post its for me), and sponge the in between areas. Then you can stamp over it or layer over it, whatever.

And wow the magic portal worked. Wasn't sure you'd get that in time!

Yep that's the one! I did wonder if you'd done it like that but the colour looked so uniform and perfect. Great job!

This episode is the first one where I notice NCIS's formula. It's an old Kate one, and McGee falls in love with another MIT grad and she gets killed, anyway, the manager of the apt. building has a speaking part, so I knew he had to have something to do with it. I remember thinking, if not, they would have had some old guy shuffle up and unlock the door and leave.

lol

Are you looking forward to the change of scene, Marge, or is it more of a chore?

It's definitely a chore. Have to get up earlier to catch the train, worry about parking near the station, schedules, commute time increases 5 or 6 fold, etc. Only good thing (aside from the vendor learning stuff) is that it is being held on the 45th floor of the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) --> so beautiful views if I get bored.

After our three days of real heat last week, it's been very nice, around 70, and breezy.

We've had nearly 3.5 inches of rain since early Monday morning. School was delayed 2 hours this morning because of flooded roads. High temps have been in the upper 50s/low 60s. Ick.

I just checked VDOT's road conditions web page. They have 30 listings of road closures in our county. However, several of them are separate listings for northbound/southbound or westbound/eastbound of the same route number.

You know the AT&T commercial where the little girl is talking about werewolves?

Apparently, "ah rr rr rr rr rr rr rr" does translate to "I wish I were back to a human."

I was saying that Tuesday night, because I was tired of feeling so bleah because of that nasty cold... and then when I got up yesterday morning I really did feel human again.

No school delays today. I had to go in for one of the preschool teachers again, just for the afternoon. She actually didn't leave, she was just trying to get paperwork done.

I was expecting the kids to be all bouncing off the walls because they haven't had recess outside all week. But they weren't quite as bad as I expected. Even though the sun was out a lot today, the preschool playground was still too wet to play there, so they had recess in the gym.

The high today was flirting with 80° so when I got home from school I opened up the windows and let some fresh air in. It felt good.

Do you know what my still-sweet-despite-the-frequent-teenage-attitudes DS offered to do for me for Mother's Day?

He said, "Mom, for Mother's Day I want you to pick wherever we go out to eat and I'll pay for my own meal out of my allowance so the bill isn't too high." Isn't that cute? I was very touched since he knows money is tight and, as he said, he eats the most, LOL, plus he is saving for a game system and has not very far to go.

Also, the kids' band teacher has a friend who offered to sell his drum set to a beginning percussionist for $150 and DD was given the first refusal (band teacher recognizes her as a serious student). Teacher evaluated the set first and told us it was an amazing deal so we accepted.

Bass drum and 3 pedals, two toms to mount on the bass, a high hat cymbal and another cymbal, two bigger floor toms, two snares and a stool! Absolutely *not* a beginner set - this will last her through high school.


Now all she wants is a standard bell set (another $150)...

Ooh, thanks!

Marge! Thanks SO much for the gorgeous card! That's the nicest card I've ever seen made with that set. Might even have to CASE it, as I have my friend's set at the moment.

Alyson, I'm inclined to believe with the music teacher that you scored an amazing deal on the drum set! I can tell you we paid quite a bit more for YDS's and he has less pieces to his.

Let us know if you want us to send you earplugs. LOL.

There's a slim chance we might get rain tonight. Fingers crossed that PH doesn't get it and we do.
