morning ladies.
I tried to stamp last night - but its no fun when the kids drive me up the wall. Madelyn wants to do the exact same thing I do so she is litterally under my feet. The twins think the stairs are the new game and Grace - well she is just not happy if it is not her way. The Matt just sits there and then gets mad when one of the babies goes down stairs - excuse me you are sitting on you rear in front of the tv. I think I am going to tell him if he gets 2-3 hours a wk of uninteruppeted time at the FD then I get the same....I got so frustrated yesterday that I just made everyone get out of the room and I shut the lights off and said I wasnt doing this. It is no fun for anyone if all they are going to do is whine.

I may have asked this before - but how do you guys organize your scraps...what is the smallest size you keep etc.

Traci, you didn't write a book! LOL! Myposts are way longer. I'm glad you got your vaca in before Erin starts school too.

Leona, Ugh...hate times like that when you feellike the house is falling in around you...kids and all. It gets so busy and unmanagable at times, too. My dh will sometimes say "what's that spot on the carpet??" then go sit down in front of the tv like WHO is going to clean up that spot? I usually do because I feel likehe is telling me in a round about way that the house is not clean enough.....but sometimes I feel I should just go sit in front of the tv too...yeah, there is a spot on the carpet...get of your arse and clean it up. LOL! He's so good in so many ways but sometimes, as Jackie Gleason would say on the Honeymooners "POW, right in the kisser!!"

Well, our AC is broken and it's hotter than hot in here. We left the windows open with the air on during the night hopeing for a miracle but neither one of us slept very well. WE kept the windows shut because it was raining...but I got up at 7 when he did and opened up all the windows and got some fans going. It's NASTY!!! The AC guy is coming around 4. I hope we can make it. I remember summers as a kid not having AC just because mom and dad couldnt' get it fixed...too much $, so we all slept downstairs in the family room...us kids on the floor, mom and dad on the pullout sofa and all of us listening to Kenny Rogers and Charlie Pride albums all night. Somehow made it feel cooler! Those were some of the best memories as a kid, really! The summer w/ no AC and another summer w/ no TV. Best memories and here we 'think' we have to have it all. Huh.....

My friend from NH is coming over in 30 min with her 3, then my niece and nephew will be ehre mid morning too for a sleep over. I'm stinky already so am going to jump in the shower. We may hit the pool if it gets too hot aroundhere.

I have some errands to run today...my little house is vacant now...have to go and see what condition it is in and get it ready for a new tenant..please pray for one soon...I need the income from it...

Have to go and get some new bras at Kohl's too...looked at some online and have an idea on which ones to try on...that is one thing that I do not enjoy shopping for though.

And to Sprouts for some veggies...Wednesday's they overlap each week's ads and everyone shops there on Wed...more fruit and veggies!!!

Going to make some squid in tomatoe sauce tonight and I will have 1/2 spaghetti squash instead of pasta...

OH well...got to go...

Love and Hugs to you all...Linda R
Saying prayers and crossing fingers that you get a new wonderful tenant!

I survived the MRI and that is all I'm going to say about that.
Well good they can be scary if you don't like confined spaces. ((hugs)) hope you have good results! Thinking of you.

Hi Tracey!!

Good morning girls!
Just trying to get a few things done here before heading out...so won't be in today.
Holly, thanks for letting us know about your surgery...will be praying for it today and tomorrow.
Beth, sure hope the AC gets fixed today. Ours was replaced awhile back, no fun to be without it in the summer.
Leona, sorry about your woes...sometimes those things just have to wait...or maybe you can arrange a stamping/scrapping retreat somewhere alone so you don't have the interruptions. A friend of mine does that, she has 3 kids, and she just goes away for 2 days. I think you could use that break.
later gators!!

Afternoon!

Will be praying about things tomorrow, Holly! I got the blog hop prize today..that came fast. THANKS! It's so adorable!

AC guy should be here soon. We just got back from 1 1/2 hours at the pool with BIL and his 3 kids, my friend-Judy, and her kids...there were 8 kids and 3 adults. Sort of fun. Now 4 are here. Bil left with my younger nephew..he's 3 and not staying overnight. They are playing quiet for a bit. Hope that AC guy comes QUICKLY! It's 83 in here. Ugh.

I need a nap!!! LOL!

Oh, we have 3 trees in our yard that are dying. So, this arborist came out today to give an estimate. The 3 trees are basically dead. 7 years old and have done fine, now dead. 2 had bores in them and one she said looked like frost/thaw damage?? I have no idea about anything but there goes $1200 probably down the drain. Trees are not cheap and we got larger ones so they would grow better and now 3 are dead. Basically the 3 on one side of our yard. Grrrrrrrr....dh is NOT happy!

Did ya miss me???

Have been a bit busy the past few days.

Grace- I'm glad you like your new house.

Joyce- How is your dad's back? And CONGRATS on the DT!! You'll be fabulous!

Beth- Those pencil boxes are super cute. Congrats on winning Holly's blog candy. Hope the AC gets fixed soon. It's super humid/muggy/oppresive here today too!

PS- How's the painting? Any news with your showing or your mom's showing? And glad to hear DD found a lovely fairy tale dress!

Traci- That was a great idea on sharing books with your DD. ANd sounds like your cabin will be even more relaxing with your new finds for decorating and stuff.

Karen- How's Pokeman today?

LindaB- Glad you had a great weekend. Isn't local produce the best?

Leona- sorry about the work junk and family junk too! But glad your art room is coming along.

Laurie- glad you had a fab weekend, but girl, 91 viruses!!! Ouchy!!

LindaR- that would be really cool if you could meet up with Traci.

Lori- Hi! Funny about your nephew's webinar faux paus.

Holly- You are one busy girl. That's great your friend could help with the wood. Is the surgery for DH's knee??


We have green kitchen cabinets- kinda mossy green.

We went to the Boston Public Garden and Boston Common yesterday. We rode on the swan boats, the carosel, played in the play ground, walked, ran, and had a super fun day. And we even got on street parking for only $2!!!!!

DH & DS left today to go camping with my SIL and her family. They are only about 1.5 hrs away, so we might go visit them tomorrow.

Made $19 on the consignment shop today which paid for some art/school supplies I bought today.

Gonna work in my craft room tonight and hopefully get some scrapping done. PM me if anyone wants to Skype.

First nap for DD with a bottle or any sort of liquied today. Gonna go cold turkey with her.

Switched dentists for DS today since I was not happy with the previous' dentist handling of DS' cavity earlier in the year.

MIL sent us an email this morning. "It was about a guy wanting a divorce from his wife she said wait 30 days because there kid was doing finals told him that he had to carry her in and out of the house at the end of 30 days the guy decided he loved his wife and wanted to stay together. So he brought home flowers and wine and found her dead. He was to wrapped up in himself to notice that she was sick and died from cancer." Yep that is the email we get the day before my surgery to remove a lump that has the chance of being cancer. That is how wrapped up in herself she is. I was pretty upset and dh is now really worried about me. I blew a gasket and sent an email back at her that wasn't too nice.

Holly, I don't even get that email...what point, if any, is she trying to make? I know I can be slow, but it makes no sense. Well, try not to let family get to you right before you go in. And you know moms and dads have to worry, that is our job. I was really nervous with DD's surgery, but mostly just wanted to be there in case the dr. needed information and of course, had to drive her afterwards. I have a good feeling that you will be fine and the outcome will be good...but still who wants to ever have surgery??

Wendy, why yes, I have been missing you. Figured you went away on one of your little trips and I somehow missed it!!

Taking a little break, went to gym and walked 2 miles, yesterday it was longer. Feeling like I have to because of the outdoor heat. But thank goodness we do have air right now.

Beth, go take a nap. Put the oldest in charge!! Oh, it is so sad about the trees, I know in our first house here they all kept dying...especially if the winter was hard. Tree removal is expensive...so sorry about that!

Thanks ladies - I am not really mad; moreso frustrated. DH gets it some days - and others he is like 'what'? what you are doing is not important, but him sitting on his duff is?? UGGG

We have our friends annual pig roast on Sat so that will be fun. The girls want to go to the local outlet mall for school shopping...I am trying to figure out when we can get there. School starts for them on the 25th.

I dont think she want making a point - probably in her own little way she was trying to show what she thinks should be done for her son - not that Holly's husband is leaving her (or vica vesa). To be honest she probably thought it would be appropriate to send even though we don't see it. I think it was sent in poor taste and if her MIL is anything like I have experienced at times...its just a way to make her feel bad if she could get sick...its very WRONG!!! I am glad MIL is not like that with me. I think we have hashed out our differences.

Well, if that was the point, trying to undermine Holly's security or cast doubt in her direction that is very wrong!!
Leona, you and your MIL have come a long way, I am so glad to hear that!!
Pig roast sounds fun, back to school shopping was always fun for me, too!

Hi Tracy!

I think Holly's MIL needs a time out to refocus her life. Sorry.

Wow! So much happening today!

Holly, I am praying for your surgery tomorrow. Try to watch a funny movie tonight maybe? Take your mind off of things? I know that laughing is usually good medicine.

And the expense, yowch, wish I could say I'm not familiar with that, but the two 'female' procedures i've had to have the past few years came with expenses not covered by insurance, as did DHs knee operation. All you can do it knock it off a little at a time.

Wendy, street parking for $2? You made out! And sounds like you had a fun day too.

I was painting today . . . finishing the trim in DSs room. I am all done painting. I don't care if a wall falls down in my house, I am DONE painting! I want to take littlest DD out to do something fun this summer too instead of constantly working on the house.

Beth, whew! Not fun weather to be without AC!!! Hope it gets fixed soon! And bummer about the trees, I'd be disappointed too trees are expensive.

Traci, good for you for getting in a walk at the gym!

Ahhhh, what else was there . . . Laurie is free from viruses now?

Karen is enjoying waukesha.

Now that I'm done painting need to clear off the brushes and figure out dinner. Think I might take littlest to the library too.

Forgot to say Holly that I believe your MIL needs a course in sensitivity training!!!!!

I don't know where the dork cast iron fry pan is, but I've got two nice heavy ones in my cupboard downstairs in the kitchen and I'd be happy to push one through the computer screen for your use!!!!!

I think I missed the MIL coversation, but hope it works out for all of you. You shouldn't have to worry about family stuff before surgery.

PS, you are a painting maniac! Your arms must be sore, or very much in shape

We had the baby again today and went back to school shopping at Target. We got a flat tire. Good thing we were at Target. Picked up a can of fix a flat then the guys at Sam's pur air in it for us. We made it home, but I was worried. An hour drive on a leaky tire was not fun. It seems to be holding but will take it to get it fixed tomorrow. I'm exhausted.

Beth, yeah for fixed AC. It is so humid today I couldn't stand it outside.

PS, yes, put down that paint brush and slowly walk away...well after you clean all the gunk off first.

OK need to pack and go...DH may be renting a trailer for the dining room tables and chairs, which would be good because then I wouldn't have to drive. I am so sleepy this afternoon!!

Wendy, I missed your post, the rest of it, that sounds like so much fun with the kiddos and good for you for the consignment shop. We are taking the old table to one in Steamboat, so hoping they take it just so we don't have to haul it home. Oh, and finding a new dentist is a good idea too...so glad you're able to scrap tonight!!

Joyce, you are so with it, never even heard of that. That is a long way on a low tire...well, rest up in the cool AC. And why are you still having babies...aren't you done with that yet?

Oh, Holly, that is insane about your MIL's e-mail. Where is cousin Vinnie when you need him...he needs to go bop her one...or two!!! Not nice!

You girls are too sweet about the new pic. It's just silly old dorky me again! LOL!

Painting, PS...I bet you are DONE w/ it...such a lot of work.

Wendy, yes we did miss you!!! How fun about dh and ds camping. That's fun but hope it's not as hot where you are...it's hot here....ugh...heat index yesterday was 103. Now, out west...that's hot, but in the midwest...it's gross, muggy, sticky, thick and nasty outside.

I think our boys are at an age where they might enjoy Back to The Future too. We might have to try it. I think dh has them saved on the computer or something.

BIL and I got the fooseball table down from the loft so I have a little more room. HIs parents bought them that and us an air hockey table a long time back and BIL never had room for it for their fooseball table. So, now he took it and is going to try to sell it. But, I'm glad it's out of the loft...gives me a little more space for my tables and club meeting. I need to move some things around and maximize the space..but we'll see....

Pig roast sounds yummers...I'm starting to get hungry!

That's funny, I just told DH the other night I'd like to see Back to the Future again, its been a while.

Foosball is fun too, I haven't played that in years! And air hockey, I loved air hockey.

Yeppers, forgot to say, cute pic Beth!

I am home and I am tired.

The kids and I went to my parents' house yesterday and slept over. I left at 6:15 this AM and drove to Waukesha. The conference was long, the room was cold and the chairs very uncomfortable. The conference ran until 4:30 PM. That's late. I waved to Laurie on my way home (I really did wave) and arrived back to my parent's house at 5:30. Rounded up the kids and got home about 6:45. I wanted to go for a walk but DH isn't home so I can't leave. I have done nothing but sit and eat today. Guess I will be working my butt off (literally) tomorrow.
Sorry that I am not up with all that is going on right now. I need to get up and unpack and get morelaundry going.

Foosball!! That is so much fun. I stink at it, but have fun playing it anyway.

Listening to DD cry it on her first night with her "baba" which is code word for bottle/milk.

Hi girls,

Holly, missed the e-mail about the surgery but will be praying for you tomorrow. Sorry your mil was so insensitive with her e-mail. Certainly not what you needed to see.

TTYL!
