Oh, boy do I hear you. I can spend 3 hours designing a card that in class takes 30 minutes.

last night, dh decided the carpeting in my craft room was dingy...as it was...so he cleaned it. A bit yesterday, we both did more today. He did the most part. And by does it look great! Now, I'm just waiting for the carpeting to dry so I can "move back in!"

Hey Girls!! Well, it's official. The hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season is upon me. This week the kiddos have their thanksgiving feasts. Youngest has his on Thurs and I have to make something from Denmark (4-6 grade has an ethnic feast. Each child is assigned a country and has to do a report (how in depth depends on the grade) and make a dish from that country). We found a recipe for Danish Peppernut cookies. We'll see!!
Oldest has his feast on Friday. He is requesting that I make my orange/pineapple/cranberry jelled salad. Luckily, that is pretty easy!!

Then YIKES!! We are at Thanksgiving!! I need to find my floors so that I can get them cleaned (since Dawn and her husband have not come to visit me to do it, hehe!) and start decorating for the holidays....

Oh, he will help me!! He carefully looked at the recipes I pulled ('cause, when it comes down to it, I have to have to ability to make it!! Plus, I don't want to waste $ on something that no one will even consider eating!!) and chose what he thought sounded good to make.

Will have to stop at the store tomorrow after work and get what I don't have for the ingredients.

Oldest....yep...I'll have him help too. But "his" recipe is really easy. Actually, if he doesn't have much homework, he can do most of it

I"m making a smiliar salad when I go to my brother's for the holiday...

DS #3...had a baby root canal on his baby tooth today...emergency...this is the 5th time I have taken him to the dentist this month!

So...we are praying that one it takes and isn't infected...and two, that it lasts at least 18 months until his adult tooth is ready to break through!

Knock on wood.....I've been very lucky with my kids and their teeth. No cavities and the only "emergency" was because oldest wouldn't wiggle his baby teeth to get them out and had a couple that just "shattered" because they were totally dead since the adult tooth had come in.

Tis the season to be crazy! Fa la la la laaa

Running around like a mad woman!! Youngest kiddo had his Ethnic feast yesterday (and yes, Melody, he helped bake the cookies). Oldest has his feast today (no....I made the dish as he wasn't home from a game and I was not going to stay up all night)

Today is work all day and then it is vacation for the boys. Maybe I'll get started on my own projects that are being negelected!! (after I find the laundry room, the kitchen table....yaddayaddayadda)

Oooo, not getting my emails from anything on here.

I got an email coupon for $10 off $30 at Creative Pals, so I went & bought 5 copic sketch markers today. Good deal. I was going to get on the freeway to come home, but I could see it was at a standstill & there was even some idiot backing up on the ramp. So I went up a couple of exits and got on.

I LOVE my copic ciaos!! I probably should have gotten sketch ones...but started with the ciaos and stuck with them. Acutally ended up buying a couple of sets from Kittie747. Have some doubles, but that doesn't bother me.

The only problem with the ciaos is I don't think they work in the air brush system. Not that I have one...but you know, I MIGHT get one someday!!

Down to two extra boys at my house today. At one point yesterday, there were 8 boys between the ages of 10-14!! Fed 6 supper last night. DH is now at the grocery store getting more eggs to feed these 4....

It is rainy, cold, foggy here today. That means that the boys and dog will be housebound. Can I just say that I'm very glad we have that stupid game system now?!! hehe

this not getting emails is getting annoying.

I bought some more sketch copics at scrapbooking alley this weekend. Had a coupon code for an additional 10% off. Now I have to impatiently wait to get them.

I was wondering if they were still having problems as I was chatting with my self!!
Ventured into the boys play room yesterday. Have a truck load to give to the local thrift store, a garbage can full, a recycle can full and a pile to give to the school. One more corner to cover and the room will FINALLY be done!! My kiddos have reached the age where they aren't into toys that much (youngest one still has some that he plays with....when his older brother is "ignoring" him). It was a job long over due!!

Ah, yes, it is definitely hard to carry on a conversation here. Still not getting emails. They are aware of the problem, but I don't think it's universal, so that makes it really tricky to figure out. Glad that's not my job.

I just had to share this -- found on Linda Elbourne's blog from a few weeks ago (I'm rather behind in my reading)...

Quote:
On top of that we have a viewing later today ... Oh yes ... the house is on the market and hopefully a lovely couple will turn up at precisely 1pm this afternoon and offer us full asking price :0) We are on the move ... to a new craft studio ... I say that knowing that you will take into consideration I have n't actually found aforementioned studio yet ... and of course ... John is digging his heals in ... as per usual ... and insisting that we get a kitchen too ... and a bathroom ... and at least 3 bedrooms ... and a garage ... his list just goes on and on and on!
I think she's got the right idea...

bwhahaaa!!
The "office" (what used to be the 4th bedroom) was suppose to be DH's man space. Which he bemoans every time he comes in here while I'm crafting!! HAHAHAA
There is NO space for his stuff. Though, I have offered to put in a table for him. He says that I would just take over that too!! hehe....poor man! I did buy him a space heater for his garage tho!

Well, it's raining now. The flakey stuff only lasted about 10 minutes.

No, TG, my sister (Bobbiesgirl) does most of the work. Everyone brings something, so she doesn't have to do all the cooking, but she does the meat, and plenty of other things, as well as cleaning, etc. I'm taking a variation of scalloped green beans (was supposed to be green bean casserole) and sopapilla cheesecake.

It is nice when someone else takes the brunt of the preparation!!
I guess I should go make that cranberry salad now. Or start supper. Both still need to be done but I just got the kitchen clean (and floors mopped) and I HATE the fact that it will be messed up again (that's why I hate housecleaning so much.....very short satisfaction time!!)

cleaning & dishes both. I swear I will just drain the water from the sink and someone will set a glass or something on the counter next to me.

I'm waiting until morning to prepare food. I fried the bacon today for the bean dish, but both things only have to bake about a half hour and I'd like them to be as hot as possible when I get to my sister's (30 min. drive).

prepping the cranberry salad now. We are eating early (noon) tomorrow so that DH's grandfather won't have to drive in the dark. Usually, we prefer to eat an early dinner....that way we don't over stuff ourselves twice in one day!! (that comes on Friday with all the leftovers)

Ok....so after making dinner, I started to clean up and the rest of the family are just sitting around getting ready to play a stupid video game. I made them come clean up the dishes.
Soooo, by the end, there was water all over my clean floor and over spray all over the sink/counter. Not sure if it was worth having them help or not!!

Hope you both enjoy your family time today!

Everyone survive the gorging on yummy food? I need to start decorating. Which requires some cleaning. Which does not sound like fun!! I also need to figure out a mass production card or holiday cards will not get sent AGAIN. Guess I should start somewhere on this list!!

Howdy stranger!!
No decorations here. Spent most of my weekend working on projects that are due this week. Not sure if I'll get any up before the weekend. Have work/MD appt tomorrow. All day fied trip to San Juan Capistrano (to the mission....CA history)....Wed, going into LA with the family/basketball team. The boys JV/Varsity team get to play a game on the Staples game floor before the Clipper game. Maybe Thurs. Friday~~work all day.

Hmmmm. Wonder when I will get my Christmas cards done?

Mark decided that next weekend is a good time to put up the tree. So no decorations are up here yet. I started my C cards a few weeks ago, but then they got set aside. I really should get them done. Guess I need to pull them out - make them visual.

Oh...you're making all the same cards? I lucked out now that I"m on a few teams where I don't have to send in my samples...so I have a variety of cards!

I send out over 70+ cards....NO WAY I am coming up with that many different designs!! The cards that I make that I don't send in will be for the "hand delivery" ones.....for the neighbors and some of the teachers.

I try to make a "photo" card each year with the boys' picture as the focus...don't think that will happen this year...but I'll still put in the pic on the inside...just can't get a layout with the photo that I was going to use to work.....

I actually prefer to make them all the same. I do simple, easy, quick -- ah, you get the picture. I also send out a lot, but I've cut back from what I used to. There have been years when it was around 150. Of course, there have been years when it was zero - 'cause I just didn't get them done.

We are peas from the same pod!! I've cut down my list TO around 70 (it could probably be trimmed a little more) from over 100 too. And like you, there are years (like last year!!) that they never got sent out. Got to the point I considered BUYING cards....but just couldn't make myself do it!! hehe

Realized this morning that my LSS is CLOSED on Mondays!! Grrrrrr.....today was the only day that I was going to be able to get there. I think I need embossing paste for my cards. Now when am I going to get it?!!!
