It is official, we need a dryer. I went to a friend's house for lunch and was gone over 2 hours. I came backa nd realized that the dryer was still on. And, there were only 3 towels and a scarf and a stray sock in there...completely WET. So, I unplugged it..and told Ken...it was dead. If it doesn't click off..that is a fire hazard. I'm tired of having to wait 2 cycles for things to dry.

No...it is/was a small roundish (not sure what the official shape is called). And I'm not kidding when I say it was small. The setting it was in made the center stone look bigger, but it wasn't.

I had always wanted a marquise, but when we were talking about rings, DH said he was worried I'd lose that for sure as it didn't have as many points to hold it in the setting. Or that I'd cut myself on the points if I crashed.

I'm one of those that wears her rings during everything. I'm just too lazy to take them off! LOL! I was always more afraid of taking it off and leaving it somewhere and losing it that way, than losing it while wearing it.

I actually went and dug out another small "Valentine" ring that DH had given me when we were dating. My finger just felt funny without something on it. My band is a very thin band. The actual setting was thicker. And the band has a funny little curve in it to fit around the setting, so it looks kind of funny by itself.

Bummer, Starla. Sounds like a solitaire - that is round. Also has more sparkle than any other shape.

I wear mine all the time. Of course, now that I'm heavier, I can't get it off anyway. I'm sure it's probably got nicks in it, but can't tell without a magnifying glass anyway.

HAHHAA....Dh got home and thought I had lost the diamond in a little ring he gave me for my birthday one year (which, is even smaller than my wedding ring diamond, but I love the unusal shape to the setting). As he was walking out the door for his game, he said that he couldn't remember what my wedding diamond looked like.

Guess I can just pick out something and tell him that is what my diamond looked like! BHWHAHAAA (of course, if he just replaces the stone that won't work....unless they stretch out the setting...)

I know that my ring was beat up. And all things considered, it is amazing that it has taken this long to lose the diamond

Welllll.....kind of like crying over spilled milk. It's done. Nothing I can do about it. And the odds of me finding it are pretty slim!

I just got home from being at the school all day. Youngest had an "in class" field trip where they "Walk Through California". Very good and interactive presentation.

Of course the office called and wants me to make a b-day card for our office manager by tomorrow. No problem! Except, I'm really tired and mojo seems to be sleeping! AAAACCCKKKK!!

Have I ever mentioned how much I HATE computers? My stupid computer won't read my camera cards....yes, I've tried two different camers/cards. The stupid thing "updated" yesterday, and now....it won't download my cameras. I am going to have DH download a new virus program this afternoon. Hopefully that will take care of the problem.

grrrrrr

You might have to reinstall the camera software.

I had DD reinstall my old software and so now at least I can do what I did before my computer crashed.

Yeah. I figure I'll let DH mess with it. That way he can't say it was my fault when everything gets messed up

Of course, I'll hear about the fact that I haven't backed up anything in awhile. Insert HUGE sigh here...................

Guess I'll go try to find my kitchen counters!

giggle....yeah, I keep meaning too, but then it seems I'm always in the middle of something when my "reminder" comes up.

Guess I need to get better at it, as it seems this computer is going to give me fits again

Last night oldest fell over backwards on a fallen player while playing b-ball, hurting his wrist. Not swollen per say. Did a taping technique for swelling and having him ice. But I think after team pics I need to take him to urgent care just to be on the safe side.

So much for my "free" day

Hope he is OK. He's not going to want to miss any games.

Took kid to urgent care and left. The wait was over 2 hours (not sure if that was to see a doc or just to get triaged by the nurse!) and the room was PACKED with kids with fevers, everyone coughing, sneezing. My own kiddo wasn't feeling the best and I knew we were both going to leave there with some new cooties that we didn't want (and dh was already home in bed with relapse of what ever he has been fighting for the past week)
Brought him home, took his temp as he was saying he was just "really tired" (100.7) gave him some children's motrin, got him comfy on the couch and his brother set up in my office on my computer.
He just woke up and is able to move his wrist better, tho it is still painful. Leads me to believe that it is just sprained/strained. I'll keep an eye on it tomorrow and call his MD if need be and get an appt to see him if I still think it might need xrays.

Bad thing is.....I have to work all day tomorrow. If kiddo has to stay home, I'm not going to be able to be here. DH just might have to come home early!

Well, oldest is feeling a lot better and is able to move his wrist pretty good. Still tender to hold weight, but I don't think it is broken.

NOW he informs me that tomorrow he is to dress as a Disney character. It is 7pm....and I have to figure out how to kinda make a cheesy Pluto costume.
Thinking, yellow t-shirt....green paper collar, floppy ears on a headband....

Do the teachers not send notes home regarding such things?

It's jr high. I think there was mention of it, as in, " we'll be having Disney day some time soon. Stay tuned for more details". Ds tried to tell me, "I told you about it". I informed him that it is his job to follow up on stuff and not assume I remember everything for all members of this family. Especially when it is mentioned, in passing, while driving!

Sounds like you need a special calendar that any family member can fill in important things coming up. Like one of those white boards that magnets to the fridge.

yeah. But one of the problems is....TOO MANY calendars. DH and I tried imputing onto a google calendar so that way we'd both have access to each other's schedule, but I still use my Palm, as it can color coordinate, so I can see at a glance "who/what" is going on. The google calendar just shows up that something is on that day....I have to click on each day to see what is going on....drives me nuts!

and then I was trying to transfer EVERYTHING to the house calendar....which, was just one more thing to copy...got to figure something out tho!

Sooooo, how were the pancakes, Starla. Pancakes are so easy to make, that almost sounds like more work.

I watched a ustream last night with Donna Salazar and won a new set of spellbinders dies - creative book pages ($50 item) woot! I would have preferred her new butterfly set, but didn't know she was giving that one away, so I jumped in on the other. You had to be the first one in with the right answer. And then I couldn't get a 2nd. oh well, all but the 2 largest dies will fit in my cuttlebug or big shot. Maybe someday I'll break down and buy the big shot pro (or whatever is comparable on the market at the time).

The pancakes were EASY! Melt some butter in a pie pan/oven proof skillet. Mix eggs, flour, milk, a little sugar and pinch of salt. I also added some vanilla. Pour ove the melted butter and bake.

The pancake is more like a crepe. The one I made in the pie pan (which looked like the picture) is flat on the bottom and the sides build up, like a bowl. Very thin. The one I made in the skillet kind of puffed up in the center versus making a bowl shape. I'm thinking it is because I guessed on the amount of batter in the skillet (made a double batch and just poured in the pans). Served with fresh strawberries and bananas with some powdered sugar. It was sooo easy and yummy! The kids are already asking when I'll make it again. I actually liked it better than pancakes. Just a different variation on the usual.

Giant Oven Baked Pancake

3 tbsp. butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. sugar
A pinch of salt
Fresh Lemon juice (I omitted as I didn't have lemons or juice!)
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Use a 9-inch pie plate or similar-sized oven proof skillet. Place butter in the pie plate and melt in the oven. Check to make sure it melts without burning! In a bowl, beat the eggs and add the milk, flour, sugar and salt (vanilla if using). Mix well. Take the hot plate/pan out of the oven as soon as the butter is melted and pour in the batter. Return to oven and bake 18-20 min. Take it out and let it cool for 5 min, then sprinkle with lemon juice and powdered sugar (or fruit!) and serve.

We also put maple syrup on it....yum!

I watched a ustream last night with Donna Salazar and won a new set of spellbinders dies - creative book pages ($50 item) woot! I would have preferred her new butterfly set, but didn't know she was giving that one away, so I jumped in on the other. You had to be the first one in with the right answer. And then I couldn't get a 2nd. oh well, all but the 2 largest dies will fit in my cuttlebug or big shot. Maybe someday I'll break down and buy the big shot pro (or whatever is comparable on the market at the time).

so...long story short...Last night, ken and I carried our new washer and dryer down the stairs and out the front door and into the van...which had to have all its seats moved, obviously. Today, we carried that same washer and dryer back into the house and back up to the upstairs laundry closet. B/c Ken thought up a solution to make it fit. I"m still not convinced 100% that this is going to work. But I am doing my first batch of laundry in the new high effiency washer! It's still a top loader...without the aggitator. So scary to move up on technology. I think I mentioned that the dryer broke last week...Ken was accepting the idea to buy an entire new set. I guess I was being frivolous. Live and learn...and now I have to buy new HE (high efficiency) detergent!

Last one we replace was the dryer. I hate having to replace those things.

I also make my own laundry detergent. Got the recipe from raisingolives.com. Seems to work pretty well. My mom used to make soap (bars) and I brought most of it home when she went into the nursing home. I just use that, so all it costs me is the baking soda and a little electricity.

but I think the announcements for her ustream shows are made on twitter and facebook.

I think it's always on Tuesdays and I don't think every week. Last night started at 7:30 pacific time. I'm not sure if that is always the time or not. but I think she's having another one next week, because she missed last week maybe? or something.

I have her blog in my favs...but I don't do twitter or FB so that would be why I missed the show announcement.
