I don't know what PFChang is, pretty sure we don't have them on the east coast.

Beth, sorry you are feeling down. Sounds like you had a nice visit with your friend, that is always nice.

I colored a 12x12 sheet of acetate today, and that is pretty much all I've done today. DH is exhausted after playing golf in the 100 degree temp and awful humidity so we have been chillin'.

Hope everyone is doing well.

PS, how did the showing go?

Poppin' in late, I know...but it's been a busy weekend. We went to church this a.m. then an hour drive to a WONDERFUL orchard for their big, juicy peaches and I bought some big red tomatoes, too. Tom's garden tomatoes just aren't doing much this year...I think it's because of the extreme heat that the Mid-Atlantic has had...we've had 37 days of temps over 90 already and we've got August to go, yet!!

I probably will be scarce this week...VBS is going to sap my energy, I'm sure. But I wanted to help...

Good to see ya back here, Beffers! I'm sure you're just suffering from post-vacation blues. I get them, too and it lasts about 2 weeks on average. Hugs!

Joyce, I believe there is a PFChangs in Baltimore, although, I've yet to go there.

Hope everyone has a great week and prayer for extra stamina for VBS would be appreciated! I'll visit when I can...

Linda those peaches sound yummy! We have had some good luck with tomatoes and cucumbers but the pumpkins are doing nothing but producing vines and blossoms.

Beffers, good luck on that second class. I always get a bit of post vacation let down. Leaves the summer with little to look forward to.

Never been to a PF Changs although I know we have them here.

No feedback at all on our showings. I am guessing we would hear something if someone were jumping up and down demanding to buy our house. With the summer winding down already and school set to begin in a month I wonder if we are in for the long haul. Average days on market for our area is above 23o, so we could sit here for a long time!

We had another showing today, had to scramble out of the house, so I haven't been near a computer until now.

I did see that dam break in Iowa, we've been to the park near Maquoketa, I feel so bad for all the destruction, people who lost their homes. Ugh.

Hi girls!
Made it to Portland and brought the heat with us!!
Having a nice time in downtown area today and walked my little bootie off...
Not sure what the plan is for tomorrow.
We ate in a dive in Chinatown, but it was really good!!
I love PF Changs, there lettuce wraps are really good, and they have a great dessert with bananas too!!

Happy Anniversary Beth!! I have the same thing with vacations and being close to family. Hugs!!
Linda, of course I'll pray for you doing VBS!

I serve a Risen Ravior
He's in the World today.

That has gone through my mind since Beth posted that!

Family party---done! Or I should say Parties. Emery, Bethany, shower for Karis. Next year it will be Emery, Bethany, Karis b-days.

Tired & HOT. a/c on the blink. Guy is coming tomorrow. My dad tried to tell us how to fix it. He also tried to tell Phil how to park the van straight. Always fun! ha, ha!

Made a very yummy gf cake from a $6 mix. It's one layer. Yep. Really. No, I don't eat cake much for obvious reasons! Made Bethany's cake for $2 including filling & icing, I'm sure! She decorated. Have to transfer pics from my camera to computer.

Got some things selling on ebay. Sold 2, have 3 with bids. Hoping the other 3 will get sold.

Maybe I can catch up tomorrow.

Hugs!

Had spaghetti for dinner...Sam ate at aneighbors then came home and ate again. We have been zapped of energy..dh too. I know he's just reeling off of that Italy trip and then vacation pretty much back to back. We have felt like doing nothing all day. Did get my extra cards made up from club. I always cut 4-6 extra so I can make them up for my baskets to sell at the bazaars this fall.

Yes, Linda...will be praying for VBS. Always a fun, but tiring week.

Have a customer who ordered 30 Thanksgiving cards to use as invitations to their big thanksgiving shin-dig. So, been working up samples for her. I have 3 done but wanted to make a few more. My paper supply is short with all this retiring paper and new paper...wish I had a couple hundred bucks to get it all NOW!!! LOL!

Lori, that is funny about that song with the blip on the risen avior. Too funny. Glad all the parties are over and you all had fun. Now you can r and r...right???? Hope so and hope those items sell on e-bay. I should list sets for sale too here or there but my ladies seem to like picking over my stuff which is fine with me. I give them old sets if they place big orders! LOL!

PS, hope you get a nibble and a nibble soon....not no 280 days out..how's that for proper grammar? Heheheh!

Traci, glad you made it to the coast. Dh's sis lives just over the river from Portland in Battle Ground. Shout out a hoot and holler to her for us, will ya? It's such a pretty area, that's for sure!

Wendy, it seems like we've seen that movie too but I can't remember.

Well, I have to get to bed......I should have gone to bed a few hours ago but at least I can sleep in. Back in the books tomorrow!

Its three in the morning. I just want to go on the record saying I love insomnia. Raise your hand if you think I'll be pretty much useless tomorrow.

Had a migraine late in the day. Caffeine and excedrin took it away thankfully but with all that caffeine pumping through my system, who is tired? Not me, not now. I will be tomorrow!!! Or later today rather . . .

Good Morning! I'm off in a few minutes to start our first day of VBS registration...they have 360 kids pre-registered! YIKES! Then I move over to the kitchen to help my friend Kim with snacks at 9:30....pray that our A/C holds up or I will be no good in the kitchen whatsoever!

Traci, glad that you made it to Portland safely.

Laurie, glad that you have a new firewall!

Hi to everyone else and have a great Monday! I'll pop in when I can this week...

PS, I hate nights like that. I hope you are still snoozing away this a.m.

Linda, hope vbs goes off without a hitch. 360....dats a lot of cookies and juice! LOL!

Hi Grace, hope you h ave a good day too. Lots to do, I'm sure!

Karen, have a good day at work too. How was the weekend? What did you guys do?

Well, I guess I better get breakfast going....Sam is asking for food. Strange kid! LOL!

Linda good luck at VBS! Yikes, that's a lot of kids!

I am awake, I am awake. Starting to function better now that I've had my tea and breakfast.

I was able to sign up littlest DD for camp this week, this is the last week of camp in our park district, they end early. So at least she'll have a little variety this week.

Take all the separate pieces of your layout, toss them up in the air, yell 'whoopie!' and see where they fall, then glue them down really quick.

Sorry, I honestly don't know . . . I'm trying to think of a card also and have no ideas.

I am free from any card making or scrapbooking layout ideas!! Erin did buy a skirt yesterday at Nordstrom's though that made me want to stamp...all kinds of pretty colors!! I think I have forgotten how to just stamp with floral solids, overlay them, and mix colors. It is such a pretty effect, and I never do it. Too much coloring now.

The flight was absolutely fine, Karen. Not too long, and we got a book at the airport, because I couldn't find the one I thought I'd put in my purse.

Today is less walking I hope, and more driving and sight seeing. I think we are taking Erin to the Ikea here in Portland...love that store but that will be a lot of walking!!

PS, that'll be great for littlest dd to go to camp, a nice breather for you also!!

Linda, prayers for VBS and air conditioning!!

Holly, glad you had fun, that is more imporatant thatn the pictures!!

Karen, Lori, Laurie, Joyce, Grace, and Beffers and anyone else I missed, have a great day!!

Joyce, I kinda like PS's idea for the page, otherwise, maybe pick things you love to do and set them on a page to see what inspiration strikes.

Off work today, running a bit of a temp so trying to nip it in the bud.

New kitty is getting along great with our two. Mostly just growling and hissing at each other. Smokey is a lovey lap kitty and a good addition to our furball family. Just wish whomever had not had the front feet declawed. We teach our kitties where it is ok to use claws and where not. Declawed cats bite more because of that. My calico was done as an older kitty and she ended up biting because she no longer had hers. LOL, I am sure you all just couldn't wait to read that, huh? TMI??

Ok, gotta quit as it is telling on the arm.

Hope to have some pics of the house, critters, shower etc to share with all of you in the next couple of weeks.

Hugs!

I am sorry Wendy, hope you get things figured out soon! Although you sound like you are enjoying your time as a stay at home mom.

Did you get that lego thing figured out yet?

Oh, the reunion and the festival sounds so good! Yummers!!!

That is so cute..the pencils. Adorable! I saw on someones blog or somewhere...maybe it was on here...that they made a little slide box with pencils tucked inside. Was totally cute and was similarly decorated like your wrapper. Cute ideas, for sure!!!

Joyce, when you typed that you were working on a lo for yourself I didn't read it as 'layout'...just lo and I could not figure out what in the world a lo for yourself was...opposite of a hi I guess! LOL! What a dork!! I'm sure it came together beautifully.

karen, yippy for days off and sleep ins.....

Traci, been to that Ikea! Love eating breakfast there and their choc bars are yummers!!! Enjoy!

Got 1/2 of lesson 1 done for my 2nd class....it's a start...

Hi gals. I was so sure I'd been here today, but I guess not. Hope you are all having a good start to the week. Hugs!

`Good morning! Grace, have you got some stuff moved in yet, or do you have to wait until the weekend? I'm happy or you, that's so exciting!

Traci, how is the west coast? How are the six dogs? Now that's a true stamper who gets inspiration from a shipping trip to Nordstroms!

Beth, did you make it to the pool yesterday?

Laurie is the computer virus cured?

Linda, how is it going at VBS? This is day two! Three more to go!

Lori, cute pics on your blog.

Karen, are you still sleeping?

Good Morning! I have a day off from VBS! They had plenty of help for registration and the kitchen today so they gave me the day off! But I've got a finger that I did something to in my sleep a week or so ago, that I can't bend all the way to make a fist and it feels inflammed...so I've got to go to the doctor about that! I tell ya...it's ALWAYS something new with me! I think I just sprained it by leaning on it funny or something (while sleeping...I think I contort my body while sleeping) but since it's not getting any better, I'm gonna get it looked at and hopefully, Xrayed. My appt. is Thursday at 8:30 then hair color and trim at 10:00 whew! (No VBS Thurs. & Fri. for me...but they do need me Wed. all morning).

Typing is a little painful so I'm going to get off here...just know that I'm lurking! LOL

Goodmorning dorks!

Linda, feel better. Glad you have the day off if your not feeling well.

Beth, you are so funny. And no it's still just a blue piece of paper awaiting some inspiration.

I have a toot, but can't share until Aug. 1st. Jeesh, it's killing me!

Linda, ouchie on the finger but glad VBS went well and you have a little bit of time off this week.

Joyce, well, sweetie, let me tell you from experience. If you have a TOOT, just let it out...I promise you will feel much better...hehehehehe!

Peggysue, I missed your call yesterday. Yup, we made it to the pool and I think when you called I was helping Sam w/ some reading and couldn't get to the phone. I'll try to call you this afternoon.

Grace, thanks for the anniversary wishes. Dh's b-day is Aug 16 so we may just go out 1x for both events. DH is so funny....he got home for once in time to go w/ us to small group and so I hugged him and told him THANKS and Happy Anniversary...he got this little sheepish grin and said "Oh, shoot, is it today??" LOL! Poor guy. I think most years I would have been pretty miffed, but this year....whatever....just too tired and unmotivated to really care. My anniversary present was having him at small group which hasn't happened only but about 6 times this past year. So, that was good for me!!!!

No rain here...just sunny skies....well, maybe a little cloudy.

Okay so how did the dog get a little pot for plants out in the middle of theyard? She's crazy!!! I event hink we put it up on the table and she just drags it around the yard. Goofball!

Still feeling tired and lazy and unmotivated. I think pushing it to get that 1st class finished has zapped my brain for the 2nd class. Ha!

Still in my jammies.....love lazy days!

Off to check Lori's blog......tata till later, girls!

Whew! I feel so much better today! This month was a bad one for PMS, I am positive it must come across in my posts. I'm cranky and whiney and just not a fun person to be around . . . completely irrational too.

Anyway, we have a showing today. We dropped the price again on the house. Don't know what will happen but I have no control over it other than cleaning before a showing. Hoping to get in some stamping time today, but we'll be busy getting the house ready so that might not happen til later.

Good morning girls!!
PS, the only way I can tell you are pms'ing is you stay away, and unless you are traveling, you are checking in regularly. So no, you aren't cranky on here or irrational. I'm just glad when you come back!

My family thinks I am way too sensitive, so I am working on that this trip. It is hard when you have (I was going to say an insensitive husband, but that sounds mean)...because he is sincere and he does things for us, and never insists on things his way...he just interrupts me when I am starting to say something. So then I get irritated, or I'll remember something, and he'll say, no, you're thinking of this...and of course, he is right because my long term memory is not great. But it gets on my nerves...and lately Erin does it too...so I just stopped talking. Because not only am I senile but I just might start saying something that isn't so sensitive and sweet. Anyway, I decided I am not going to dwell on it, and I am
so so so enjoying seeing my daughter and husband together and seeing how mature our daughter is getting and seeing my husband relax and not have his head glued to a cell phone.

Today we are going to the beach, it is Cannon Beach, Oregon (about an 1 1/2 hour drive from here ). It will be beautiful...it's a place where a lot of artists go to paint seascapes, very picturesque!!

And we won't have the dogs until we get to my brother's house which will be just for one day, when my sil's is having a barbeque for all the family so we can see all of them without having to drive all over the country. So that will be really fun!!

We picked out a couple of wooden toy sets at Ikea...a large train set with the wooden tracks you put together (perfect for his age)...and another one for right now. I think they are good choices, and his mom can decided if she wants him to have both now or what.

So, having a very good bonding time...yesterday went to The Grotto, to the mouth of the Columbia River Gorge and got pictures, to Lake Oswego and went to my fave kitchen store, Sur la Table...(ooh la la) and then home to rest for an hour and then out to dinner to Ruth Chris Steak House. So a busy day...but fun!

Beth, how fun that you've been here!! We are staying at The Embassy Suites in the heart of downtown Portland, it makes it easier to see the things DD wanted to see. I prefer being out of downtown, but it is very convenient, the beds are wonderful, and they have a full cook to order breakfast buffet every morning so it cuts down on costs also!!
Wish I'd known about the Ikea candy bars yesterday, makes sense they'd be so yummy!!

Wishing everyone else a good day, need to scoot.

Check in tomorrow.
