Hey, Dawn. I haven't done much stamping this week either. Although I did get two cards done today for the Gina K release challenges. I did do another card earlier in the week for my DT to publish on Monday.

Today I spent some time outside planting a few tomatoes, cilantro and marigolds. All in pots. I want to plant some zucchini and yellow squash, but need to do some more digging for that. I also bought some lavender to replace my poppies, which just don't last long enough for front yard viewing. They get too ugly when they're done blooming. I'm not looking forward to pulling them out and putting in the lavender, but... I might transplant a few of the poppies to just beyond our property line in back, but I know any digging out there will be hard. It's county property and I don't see how they'd care if some poppies started growing back there.

I'm also cat sitting for DD this week - not sure for how long. She's been sleeping over, and that seems to be working out ok. I've never had a pet, so I wouldn't really know what to do with it. I think he's afraid of me. He pretty much hides all day.

DD got a kitten awhile ago, even though her apt. doesn't allow pets, so now she was told she had to get rid of it immediately. She's tried to find someone to take it and I think she has someone that will, but they're on vacation. Gotta learn the hard way.

Hey Ladies! It would appear that my computer is once again going to give me false hope in working for a bit!! Does one dare hope (or pray?!) that it will last!

I just spent the last 30 minutes emptying all the e-mails from my in box!! I REALLY need to get busy and make DS a b-day card and get graduation cards rolling too!!
Next week is the last week of school for us!! YIKES!

Oh, it's definitely temporary! I will NOT let it stay here long. I'll just threaten that I'm going to open the door and let it out.

No way. I have never cared for cats. And I'm also a bit allergic.

No cats here either. Dh is very allergic and considers the only useful thing for a cat is to feed the coyotes ( which, where we live, that is pretty much what happens to the majority of them!)

I did more digging yesterday & then made DH mow through the weeds that he could without mowing down my peonies & rhubarb. Because our mower had been in the repair shop, the grass was pretty long, so then I was raking grass, too. Today I was going to dig some more - went out for a little while, but, then it started raining, so that shot any more time outdoors.

Happy Memorial Day ladies!!

Did you see that neat TLC card? I really wanted to make one for my mom b/c I know she'd love it! haha. Only there is no way that a holiday is going to give me time away form the family to make it today!

We actually have sun! I shouldn't even say anything for fear of jinxing it!

Happy day to you, too. There are too many surfaces in that card for me. Too complicated for a busy day. haha

We have mostly blue sky with puffy little clouds. Not sure what the forecast is. We have a family get together this afternoon. Hopefully, I can get a little more yardwork done this a.m.

hi!!

I never made that card. I should do that tomorrow. Thanks for the reminder.

Nothing new around here. My mouth is still really pained. Did I mention that? wah, wah...

I have gone to the dentist about 5 times in a week...and they "can't find anything." Ugh.

Today my first born baby graduates from 8th grade! Actually, that would be this evening. CRAZY!
Reception area is decorated, just need to make a few balloon bouquets this am....then tackle the mounds of laundry so everyone has clean socks! haha

I actually ended up making cards for all the 8th graders so I need to get those in envies. (one of these days I might have time to post them....maybe....snort). Then I only have the "special" grad cards to make before Sat/Sun. Oh yeah. I have the principal's b-day card to make from home and school too....

Working full time next week might seem like a vacation after this week! haha

I really think that next year you should give someone else the 'privilege' (said with tongue in cheek) of being responsible for b-day and whatever else cards. So what if they aren't handmade! Take some stress off.

Oh yeah!! I'm thinking that I'm going to cut waaaay back on the hours volunteering.........with me working more hours, I just can't do it anymore! This is the first year that Home and School gave the teachers/staff b-day cards....personally, I'm fine with it being the last! haha

Plus....the one of the other gals on home and school makes cards too....(she is into die cuts vs. stamping). I would hate to deny her the privilege! BHWHAAAAa

While 6th grade is technically middle school at kiddo's school too, their classroom is still in the elementary area, so it is hard to think of them as being in middle school. 7th and 8th grade are between the elementary and high school, so it seems truely like they are in middle school.

youngest will be in 5th next year....two more years before the "move to the other side of campus"

I think I actually survived graduation weekend!! Today DH has a party to go to, but since it is the boys he coached, I'll skip that one. I just need to find my kitchen and the laundry room!!

You girls must be busy! It's very quiet here.

I have the daunting task of trying to find an outfit today that I can wear to my cousin's wedding next weekend.

What are the odds that I will find something that makes me look 15 lbs lighter?

well, right now, I'm trying to dye the greys out of my hair super fast...and then do my exercising. My body is having a terrible time getting to sleep at night. I hate when that happens. Oh, staying up late isn't bad...it's the waking up early! haha.

Firday is our last day of school...half day too. Can not wait. Although, this means I have a really busy week ahead of me. I think I'm going to be at school every day except today!

You are brave!! I pay waaaay too much to get my hair done, but since I do get the occasional compliment (and request for the name of my hairdresser) I guess I'll just keep paying too much! haha

Can I just say that packing a carryon for traveling these days is the absolute PITS?!!
A quart size bag for "liquids, not more than 3 oz. Seriously? By the time you put in some lotions, shampoo, conditioner, hair product, there is no room for deodorant or toothpaste. Or my liquid makeup foundation. Crossing my fingers that the foundation and deodorant don't explode in my make up bag. Actually, I'm just going to put them in another quart bag. Worse case scenerio, they make me throw something out and I have to go buy them...(luckily, they are almost all empty anyways!! )

And another thing....one place says disposable razor and sealed blades for such razors are allowed....next line over it says "NO" for carry on.

No wonder people get cranky when they travel!!

spent two hours shopping at hobby lobby today. DD had to take cat to Kenosha for a little surgery at 8 in the morning. Which meant we had to leave the house around 6:30 a.m. *yawn* Then she had to pick the cat up around 4:30 or so, so we spent the day in Kenosha. We don't have hobby lobby by us, so I printed out a couple of coupons and got Tim's tiny attacher and a corner chomper for 40% off. We walked the entire store - they have some fun stuff.

We spent several hours shopping - or I should say she shopped and I read a book.

I just had one of those DUH moments...starla is a physical therapist!!

Hey, I sprained my ankle last monday...10 days ago. It's a bit sore. I want to exercise. But I'm afraid of reinjuring it...that it's not strong enough yet. Do you have any tricks up your sleeve??

I'd say ice, ice, ice, first of all to help with the localized inflammation. On for 10-15 min, off an hour, and repeat as needed.

As far as exercise, start out easy. Walking on level ground, maybe bicycling ( non weight bearing, but if it is the foot you put down when stopped, I might hold off!). Basically, start easy and progress as tolerated.

Pretty vague, but hard to recommend without more details and evaluation!
