***Misfit Monday (9-24-12)***
 
Happy Monday!

We had a great weekend. We drove up to the mountains to see the changing aspen trees. We go every year, but it never gets old seeing them. We took a picnic lunch and ate at a park and took a train ride to a mining town - Preston is obsessed with Choo-Choo's right now. We also drove to the top of the mining pit and watched all the BIG trucks - many of them honked as they drove past us, he loved it. It was a gorgeous fall day and we all had so much fun.

I'm going to the zoo again tomorrow with another friend and her kids. Looking forward to going back.

Good morning, Jennifer, happy Monday!

jor 09-24-2012 08:03 AM

Happy Monday. It is beautiful here. Some of our leaves are beginning to change, but not much as yet. Jennifer - I saw the pics you posted on facebook - they are gorgeous. I love all the changing seasons!

I do not understand why I have been sooooo tired the last couple of days. Like I seriously cannot keep my eyes open.

good morning!

LAST CALL FOR SECRET SANTA! If you would like to play along, please let me know.

Today is my 18th anniversary. We leave for St Louis tomorrow morning, so neither of us wanted to go out today. I DID get my wheel chair yesterday. Bob can be such an *****!!! I think he thought he was going to be pushing me ALL the time! I explained that he wouldn't be, that I would be walking as much as possible! I also told him if he was going to be a big grouch, I wasn't going. In a way, I really don't care if I go or not!

I'm planning on stopping at an ARCHIVER'S and another stamping store, while down there. I guess I better get their address!

smileyj 09-24-2012 01:34 PM

Linda- Happy Anniversary! I hope your dh will be in a better mood. Sometimes they just need to hear that we are doing the best we can!

Jennifer- I love fall. I am so happy for you to be able to go out and enjoy it.

Caterina- I have been thinking about you today! I wore my bright gold work shirt today!

Sherry- I think I signed up for the SS. Please give me some ideas.

hedgiemama 09-24-2012 02:15 PM

Sherry do you have me down? Are we going to do wish lists?

Please for wish lists. Makes it so much easier! I want to give people something they want/will use! :) Especially if I get Hedgie! LOL I have a great idea for you!

Busy day here. Worked, trying to clean a bit. Very tired. I don't sleep well on Sundays! A lot on my mind.

Surf n turf for dinner, sort of. I'm having garlic seared cod, kids are having steak and I am also making baked potato (1 which we'll share - they don't really care for it - I'm trying to broaden their horizons) and garlic spinach for me, chopped raw peppers for them. Simple and healthy. Sort of. LOL

Reynold and I just got back from taking Camron & Conrad to Chili's which they enjoy. Today ALL proceeds go to St. Jude's for childhood cancer research. We make sure both boys get to color a chili and make a donation. :D

Am so very grateful that Chili's does this every year!

nikki1578 09-24-2012 05:24 PM

I would love to do the SS swap :) but would like to do wish lists too though.

happy anniversary Linda

the weather is so nice here :) it was little chilly this morning but it so good.

Joanne I am glad I got to see my friend too. She goes in on Friday for more surgery will be there for several days this time. He said depends on how she does she may get to go home next Friday. So will go visit her one day next week. Just keep praying for her. I talked to her today for a long time, she is just so scared.

jor 09-24-2012 09:56 PM

Nikki - I will certainly keep her in my prayers. I'm sure she is scared, but I am also glad you are there for her. I have my annual mammogram on Thursday and I'm getting more nervous as it gets closer. I do every year, but since this is 15 years since the first time, I'm a little more anxious. I'm also getting an ultrasound (did I tell you all this already?) for the low back pain to rule out fibroid tumors. I don't think they will find anything there - I think I'm just going to have to live with this issue. Maybe she will have a better pain killer for me though. I think I live on Advil sometimes.

My heart goes out to your friend and truly pray that God will keep here calm before, during and after surgery and remove all fear. Sending much love, hugs and prayers.

Have no clue how they do those kinds of things. Camron & Conrad loved it and of course wanted to see it over and over again.

jor 09-26-2012 07:46 AM

Morning. Another bad allergy day. And I ran out of tissues! I'm using napkins, which are not as soft! LOL

Did you all hear that Andy Williams passed away? He was a favorite of mine - great childhood memories of watching his shows, especially the Christmas specials. I bought a DVD a few years ago of highlights from his Christmas shows. I will watch them to bring back the wonderful feelings/memories of my childhood. It wasn't Christmas without an Andy Williams special. He seemed so nice.

nikki1578 09-26-2012 08:09 AM

Joanne sorry your not feeling well and to run out of TISSUES OH NO not good ;( I did hear that Andy Williams Passed away so sad. :(

came home on my break not getting read to head back to work :) love living so close i can just come home in 4 mins :)

scrappincanyon 09-26-2012 08:15 AM

Good Morning!

I hope everyone has a great day!

Joann - I hate allergies! Hang in there and get some really soft kleenex!

Nikki - I'm sorry!


Sherry

Good morning ladies! It's been quite a while since I've dropped in so I thought I'd say hi. Secret Santa time? Oh what fun that was! For those of you on the fence join in - it's SO MUCH fun!

I'm not working and haven't for almost a year (by choice). Next year I'll be able to retire "officially" and am looking to going back to 2 incomes instead of 1. Lately I've been busy with yard work since my husband had his second knee replacement in July and hasn't been able to do much around the house/yard. Hopefully he heels before the snows come!

jenguin 09-26-2012 08:29 AM

Home today working on schoolwork. My old school called this am begging me to sub today! LOL I was good and said no. Think positive thoughts for my meeting with my professor today! It's at 4!

Joanne, Reynold and I did get the opportunity to see Andy Williams along with his guest, Ann Margaret in Branson a few years ago. He truly was a very nice man and he will be missed.

jor 09-26-2012 10:36 AM

I always wanted to see him. I'm sorry I didn't have the chance. :(

smileyj 09-26-2012 12:39 PM

Lynn- I am happy to see you popped in on us.

Caterina- I wish I could have seen Andy Williams as well. I did watch many a shows. I particularly remember the Osmond Brothers. I did see them as a teenager before Donny joined his brothers.

Joanne- Allergies are the pits. I am hoping for cold weather to kill all the allergens.

Sherry- I saw the survey.. I really don't know what I want.

Jen- thinking of you right now!

Nichole- I work about 7 minutes from work. it is 2.24 miles. I have walked it many times. However, I have way too much pain in my heel to attempt that now!

have a great evening!

jenguin 09-26-2012 12:52 PM

The professor never showed up! No email or voice message. She said she sent a text message.....to my landline. Wouldn't it bounce back as undeliverable? I am annoyed. Really annoyed. I think she forgot. If I missed an assignment and didn't contact her I'm pretty sure I'd get an F.

nikki1578 09-26-2012 04:22 PM

Jen thats crazy.

Joanne I love living so close and even with Publix its only 13 mins from the house so that is good too. I want to walk i need to do it one day and see how long it takes. I may have to do it in the winter because i wish you could see this road i live off.

hello Lynn

hope you all had a great day today. :) HUGS TO ALL.
