***Misfit Monday (10-1-13)***
 
Happy October!!!!!!!!!!!

It's that time of year to start thinking about Christmas - anyone interested in doing the Secret Santa?

Since I've become addicted to Pinterest, I have so many ideas floating around in my head and need to put them to good use :D

caterinafmig 10-01-2013 07:25 AM

Wow, October 1st already!

Here is the link to the Patch interview that was done for Coles Foundation. The reporter wanted a short video to go with it... kind of scary.

Thanks sweetie, it was one take so I was nervous.

jkincolorado 10-01-2013 11:39 AM

Went to the park for a play date - found out my friend who was going to be stationed in Maine, isn't moving now. SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!

Need to go water my garden, wash windows, do laundry, clean house, make a card blah, blah, blah.

jenguin 10-01-2013 12:43 PM

Just put in a batch of apple pumpkin muffins. Book club and my boys will be happy!

I am in for Secret Santa. I so enjoyed it last year!

hedgiemama 10-01-2013 01:24 PM

What is your book this time Jen? I wonder how you get a book read every month with how busy you are!

I so enjoyed the Secret Santa also, would love to take part!

Worked a full 10 hour day yesterday, I posted in previous thread. Much swelling and pain last night and this am. I ended up staying home bacause it was throbbing and I had to take a pain pill. I should have arranged for half days at first. That was dumb on my part. I feel like a ninny. I don't know why this is so hard for me.

jenguin 10-01-2013 01:27 PM

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Hated it! I don't always go to book club/have time for reading. I do over the summer and if I'm not taking a course.

smileyj 10-01-2013 02:09 PM

Hi everyone! I am tired of coughing. My co-workers and the kids have had this for weeks. On a positive note! It is beautiful outside. I am enjoying the changing colors and warm weather. Not hot!

jenguin 10-01-2013 02:11 PM

It is going to be 83 tomorrow out here! Crazy! I am liking the nice weather though I am hating getting up in the dark!

smileyj 10-01-2013 02:16 PM

when I leave for work at 6AM, it is really dark. I don't mind!

jor 10-01-2013 02:35 PM

Afternoon - I have to watch Cat's interview!

It is going to be very warm here the next few days as well. I predict my husband will want the AC on! I don't think so. We need the financial break! I love it when I can have windows open.

I am in for Secret Santa, too.

Hedgie - can you still arrange to work part time for a week or so?'

hedgiemama 10-01-2013 02:38 PM

I leave at 7:15, still light here, but not for long.

Joan, sorry about the cough. Hope it clears soon for you.

It was warmish here too...

Tomorrow I have to package up some things I ordered on line that I need to return. You know how it is when you are home, laid up. You get an e-mail about a sale.....lol!

Jen, I am having trouble finding a good book right now. I think it is because I don't feel that great. IDK. I just can't concentrate.

nikki1578 10-01-2013 05:10 PM

hello :)
hope you all had a good day today, mine was pretty good.

I will do Secret Santa :)

hope you all have a great Wednesday :)

lindalaskowski 10-02-2013 06:16 AM

I guess I have come "down" from my vacation! I put the sacks in my craft room, and haven't even looked at them, let alone put them away. I canceled Hostess Club for Monday evening, and haven't touched the house. I think I will look for a counselor today. I can't go on like this!!! I have talked to my sister a couple of times. She likes the chicken I sent her.
Her daughter has really got her and her 2 kids in a real mess now!!! She married the abusive boyfriend in Missouri. There is a court meeting today to decide whether the children's father gets full custody, or the mother, or if the children go into a foster home. IF they go with their mother, the stepfather that she just married can NOT be present! If they go into Foster Care, my sister and her husband will get an apartment in Missouri, and apply to be foster parents. Those poor kids! When their father brought them to the court Monday after having them for almost 2 weeks. They were to go with their Mother (my niece) They had to peel them off of their daddy's legs, crying. The authorities were all taking pictures. Makes me so sad!!!

scrappincanyon 10-02-2013 07:00 AM

I'm in on Secret Santa!

Hedgie please be careful!

Cat - great interview, you look great!

This is my Friday. I'm taking the rest of the week to finish up everything for the party Friday night! My DH is taking pictures for us, I hope to upload a few to show off my family!

I hope everyone has a great Hump Day!

Sherry

hedgiemama 10-02-2013 09:20 AM

Hi Guys!

Beautiful day, housebound as they are paving the streets in the complex, no one is allowed to drive on it until tomorrow.

That is ok, I had returns to pack up and a performance review to do.

Kohl's is having a great sale on the Kitchenaid, Clasic Mixer. You get 15% off the sale price by putting in a code, then you get a $40.00 give card. Plus there is a rebate for $20 back in the mail. I am getting each of my girls one for Christmas. I WANT one too, but how much do I bake, they have a lifetime ahead of them

jkincolorado 10-02-2013 11:09 AM

Wow Hedgie - that does sound like a great sale on a KA mixer. I have one and LOVE it.

Cleaning and cleaning some more. I'm hosting a party on Monday and I have several people coming that have never been to our house before so I want it to be extra clean. It's amazing how dirty the little things get like patio door tracks and light fixtures.

caterinafmig 10-02-2013 12:12 PM

Spent time with my kiddos at the hospital, sadly too many of them have been there for way too long. Had a little excitement when the emergency alarm (very noisy) went off and everyone was scurrying about, closing doors, clearing hallways, etc. Was not sure what to do until someone said it is just a fire drill.

Thanks for the nice comments on the interview. Aaron has hired a media person to get some coverage for the foundation as well as childhood cancer. The Baltimore Times piece just came out and gave us a full page! We picked up a couple of copies to mail out. The woman who did this one, did an outstanding job and said she will send me a link.

Oh Linda, what a very sad situation.

smileyj 10-02-2013 12:19 PM

caterina- you are such a blessing to the kiddos and families. The interview is great. I am happy they are getting some publicity.

Sherry- have fun during the party...visit with everyone and just relax. You have worked hard.

Jennifer- It seems as soon as I get things cleaned up they are dirty again. Dh hates company. So we never have visitors.

Hedgie- How are you feeling?

Linda- I am so sorry. Please take care of yourself.

I just bought my first Pumpkin Spice coffee from Brueggers Bagels. It sure tastes good. Jennifer came to mind.

I am unsure of Secret Santa for this year. I had fun last year! Finances are a tighter now!

nikki1578 10-02-2013 03:39 PM

Saw it on the news, looked devastating.

jenguin 10-03-2013 02:23 AM

Good morning from the East Coast!

Yesterday was another one of those days! I have determined that everyone else at work is just as stressed out and the kids are that disrespectful so I am not alone. Somehow it does make it a little bit better!

Went out to dinner with my crazy teacher friend from work. She had a groupon for a brick oven pizza place so we had some wine, salad and fancy pizza. It was yummy and she insisted on treating with the groupon so dinner ended up being only $8 - I paid the tip. The salad was on the house since we had to complain - our waitress was that bad! It was nice to do dinner with a girlfriend. All my local friends are married and don't have time to go out. This friend is divorced and she is 6th grade special ed so she had all my special friends last year.

It feels like it should be Friday. Today is a long day. It is back to school night at work. I don't technically have to go as a para but since I want/need a recommendation/job I am going. Just what I feel like doing on a Thursday night!

Make it a great day!

hedgiemama 10-03-2013 03:11 AM

Good Morning Friends!

I am going to give work another try today, this is a tough week but it does feel good to get back into a schedule again.

Sounds like a very nice dinner last evening Jen, glad you got a chance to decompress with someone who knew exactly what you were feeling. I love those brick oven pizza's! Yum...

Have a good day everyone!

Hedgie, please take it easy and if you start feeling that you have done enough, get yourself home for some rest.

jkincolorado 10-03-2013 06:11 AM

We're supposed to get a hard freeze tomorrow night - need to cover up my plants and garden. It's going to be back in the 70's next week so I want to save all I can for now. I'm going to the Farmer's Market this morning. This might be the last one if the weather kills their crops. I have so enjoyed getting a big bag of fresh veggies every week. I'm going to miss it!

My neighbor and I are going to a ballet tone class today. There's only one gym that offers it and it's 20 miles away. We're going to carpool and make a day of it. It sounds interesting!

jor 10-03-2013 02:15 PM

Hi all - allergies are wreaking havoc the last two days. I've tried a new over-the-counter med which helped for awhile, but not now. I also am using saline nasal spray every few hours and tried taking some Benedryl to 'double dose'. Nothing. Guess I'll be contacting the doctor.

I had to lay down for a while today. I lost full steam at 4pm but had to stay til 5:30. Tomorrow I am the only one there. Yikes

jenguin 10-03-2013 04:36 PM

Back to school night is done. I don't have to go but it is in my best interest for recommendations/possible job. I was one of TWO paras out of 25 paras there. All the important people saw me so that is good. I'm now wired of course.

jor 10-04-2013 07:37 AM

Morning.

Thinking of you, Hedgie. Hope the day isn't too bad for you.

It is going to be HOT here the next few days. Mid to high 80s. This is August weather NOT October!

Joanne, am enjoying the warm weather along with my figs. Reynold and i picked quite a few today. Ya know I am a summer baby. ;-)

jor 10-04-2013 11:42 AM

I'm not complaining too much. But my family decided the a/c needed to go on. It was 80 in the house. I'll shut it off later - that's for sure!

jenguin 10-04-2013 12:16 PM

The weather has changed here. It is cool and rainy. Fall is back! Soccer is going to be muddy tomorrow!

smileyj 10-04-2013 01:23 PM

Another rainy day here. We need rain this time of year. It is cool! My kind of weather.

Caterina- I have never eaten a fig.

Jen- I am happy that you went to the back to school event. You never know when being seen might help. Sure can't hurt. How are the boys?

Joanne- I would be turning on the A/C if it were 80 in the house.

Hedgie- Take care of yourself. Over doing it will not help the healing process.

I worked today. The chef, the boss and I were the only ones. It was a teacher's meeting day. So we fed them a continental breakfast. Lunch was wonderful! The chef made beef broccoli served over rice, a great noodle salad, add orange slices. I decorated the serving area for Halloween. The ledges, cupboard doors and coolers have pumpkins, spider webs, leaves and scary creatures. Climbing up and down the ladder to hang 52 leaves and pumpkins from the ceiling was hard on the heel. However, the area does look nice. I took Advil and it is just achy now!

Wow, Joan, you sure did work today! Make sure you pamper yourself this evening.

Figs are delicious, however, the ones in the grocery stores are not good, in fact, they are tasteless. My Sicilian parents had lots of fig trees in our yard along with all kinds of fruit trees and my dad took very good care of them.

smileyj 10-04-2013 01:33 PM

Caterina- it was an easy day compared to the usual.

jenguin 10-04-2013 01:40 PM

Joan - sounds awesome! I hope your boss is behaving!
