If Bob is calling tonight, it will be within the next 1/2 hour so I'm going to start shutting stuff down for the night. I'll check in tomorrow.
Sweet Dreams.

I get my "right size" envelopes at Staples. I hate that they have started making them the 4 x 6 size. I also go to Staples to get my padded square envelopes for my embellished cards.
I have noticed than a lot of the store brands are 4 in now, we may need to adjust our cards
I really prefer SU... today I got 50 for $5.00 so I will use them,
I have about 100 of some ivory ones with a gold line on them, but they are 4 x 5 1/4 I think...I am planning on cutting my Christmas cards to fit them I do not want to waste that many
I checked on some at Office Depot, but for 100 they were $14.99 and so flimsy, I just did not like them... The 4 x6 are nice if I want to include a picture... but still do not want to cut card stock to fit that, unless it is the 12 x 12

Oh, I stick around for lunch since it's only an hour, but we have a dinner break from 4 - 6 so not sure what the plan will be for that.

Not sure what our day will be besides going over to the other house to check things out and do the yard if it's needed.

Addison, Ashley and I went for pizza last night and then stopped to pickup my groceries. Ashley helped carry in and then we all went over to there house. Addison wanted me to watch her take a bubble bath. Davina and Chad got home about 8:45 and I guess it was really hard to drive away and leave Cody there. Must have been hard to him too because by 9:00pm he was texting his Dad. This is going to be such a hard adjustment for all to make. I thought maybe it was because he's the first to "leave the nest" but Davina says it will probably get harder with each one. She's going to get a web-camera this week. Chad kind of teased her about it, but Davina says she will buy it with her photography earnings and he has nothing to say about it.

Feeling a little down today - don't really have any significance to the date, but it was a year ago that I lost my job. Feeling lonely - I think. Went to church this morning and then went up to the little cafe for breakfast. First time I've eaten there under the new ownership. It was really good and the price was more than reasonable. Had a 3 egg omelet of bacon, cheddar cheese and onions, toast and coffee for less than $8. Food was served hot and it was good. Hope Shawn is able to keep it going over the winter months. I'm certainly going to eat there whenever I can afford to - he does have limited hours, so it will probably only be on the Sundays that I'm off.

Last owner served horrible food and the prices were "big-city". I ate there one time and never went back. I had ordered a bacon-cheese omelet and instead of bacon they had made it with "bacon bits" - the kind you put on salads. OMGosh it was absolutely horrible tasting and they charged $8.00 just for the omelet. Needless to say they weren't in business very long.

off to check out the gallery - not that I'm anywhere near having a space to create, but it doesn't hurt to look and comment.

Glad that you and the girls had a girls' sleepover. Hope you have a fun day without any rain to spoil it. We've got a small chance of showers, but not much. So far sunny, hot and humid.

I hope it doesn't take too much more time for you to have to do that and that they will eventually get that estate all sorted out.

That is a really hard time, and I can understand it gets harder with each one because then you're left with no one there. At least now, there are a couple more still at home. I've talked to my DD in CA about what she is going to do in 2 more years when her youngest is off to school. She needs to find her own pathway in life.

That's great that the new place has much better food and at a reasonable amount. Ewwwww. . . I can't tolerate bacon bits even on my salad. If I'm going to have bacon, I want the real thing even if it's turkey bacon, at least it's not fabricated from something else.

I think I was feeling 'put upon' when we didn't hear what/when/etc of this visit because after Matt's visit I felt I was used like the hired help. I spendt way too much time "making it nice' and cleaning up the kitchen afterward. Somehow Bud thought I enjoyed doing it all (men!) I hate that! Anyhow I stocked up the kitchen &.....sat-on-my-butt the night they got in! LOL!!! Bud & I ate dinner early & I had it all cleaned up before anyone got here. Since no one got here until after 7 I didn't feel a sit down dinner was needed. Liz made herself a sandwich @ 9 & Sam helped himself to one too. I forced myself to sit and visit and let everyone know that they were welcome to whatever they could find. Breakfast was bagal, muffins & fruit both days...again help yourself. Sam then went golfing by himself, Bud & Justin watched the Ohio State football game & Liz, Marda & I hung out in the pool. Everyone helped themselves to sandwiches when they wanted it (even Bud who made a PB&J because it was the easiest) again I made myself sit back & let them! Not easy but I need to do this. They are perfectly happy to help themselves, Marda NEVER cooks or 'fixes' for Sam. By now I am relaxed & enjoing myself (who knew!!) In the afternoon we drove up to Mt Dora, showed off the house & the model, went to Bob Evans for dinner (Sam paid ) then walked around Downtown Mt Dora, had frozen custard & watched fireworks shot off over Lake Dora. aToday they all went to Disney Animal Kingdom but we chose to stay home. I was able to get 5 loads of laundry done and bathe the dogs. I will make a quick dinner for all tonight. I really need to adopt this new attitude cause I don't think anyone appreciates me killing myself to the point of getting crabby. And I have found the more I do, the more Bud expects...it's not 'special' anymore but expected.


okay that was way long, feel free to skip reading it!!! LOL!

Yea for you Dody. Sounds like everyone is enjoying themselves as well as you. I don't really see any reason for a person to wait upon others especially when the others essentially invited themselves to your house. That is an extra special thing that you will make dinner for them tonight. I'm sure that will be appreciated. So glad that you got to enjoy the visit as well.

I don't think I told you guys that the little black kitty came back. I think it was Thursday night when I got home and she was out on the front porch just crying and crying for something to eat so I put some food out there. After she ate what she wanted, I went and picked it up. I had to put it down the disposal because there were ants crawling all over it. I guess I left it out there too long. Next time I just pick it up when she's done.

Well, she's back out today sitting on the sidewalk, not crying or anything. I tapped on the window so she'd know I was here. She just turned around and looked and then turned back around. So I guess she's not hungry right now. I don't really like feeding them in the front yard because I don't want to attract other animals to my house, but as long as she eats and I can pick it up, it'll be okay.

Dody....good for you!!! It sounds like you have enjoyed the visit...and have relaxed at the same time! That is the way that we are use to things when we visit people. We do let them know when we are arriving!! But, otherwise, we are on our own for breakfast and lunch. Then MIL will "think" about dinner. Her schedule is so weird...sometimes she was home for dinner and other times it was closer to 8:30pm (after her class left the gym). We sort of do it like that at Deb's....except we usually have breakfast and lunch together.....she and work together to get that going. Then dinner the same way....both of us working in the kitchen....or her hubby doing all the cooking one night!

We were talking about that at lunch today.....it was a late lunch. We just got home! We figure if the families have been sent a letter and they are waiting for replies...okay...at least the lawyer has done SOMETHING! But, if the cousin says that the lawyer still hasn't done anything...and it's been a month since "we" supplied the names of the "missing" family. Then Jack and I both agreed...it's time for a new lawyer. One that will work! Jack says he gets rather depressed after we have been over at the other house. Since nothing has been done to get this moving!

Yes, and there you two are over there doing all the cleaning up work that the family should be doing. I know you guys were friends of the man who passed away, but still the family should be the ones that are taking care of all of the personal/house stuff. I remember so well when my girls' dad passed away 2 years ago and how much work they had to do to clean it up so they could put it on the market to sell. They were over there all day every day and then Debbie had to do a lot on her own after Lisa had to go back to CA. It was not an easy task for either one of them.

I just heard from Colleen over on The Outlawz site. I never did get my goodie bag prize that I won back in July. Don't know what happened to the girl that was supposed to send it, but Colleen e-mailed her twice and I e-mailed her once, and neither of us has heard from her. I looked at her blog and it doesn't seem that she's posted anything on there since early August. Anyway, Colleen sent me a $10 GC to Oozak. com. That's pretty cool. I love Oozak and can spent $10 there in no time at all.

Life happens unfortunately. That was sweet of Colleen to step in and take care of it. Congrats

Must have been hard to him too because by 9:00pm he was texting his Dad. This is going to be such a hard adjustment for all to make. I thought maybe it was because he's the first to "leave the nest" but Davina says it will probably get harder with each one. She's going to get a web-camera this week. Chad kind of teased her about it, but Davina says she will buy it with her photography earnings and he has nothing to say about it.
Awww. Poor Davina. Yes, it is tough. It's a whole new world for Cody, too. And I'm sure it's bothering Chad more than he's letting on.

I ditto this! Go Dody!

We are cooking brats, italian sausage and hot dogs, there will be cottage cheese, deviled eggs and either chips or french fries , that depends on my mood lol ...

I noticed today when we saw Tammy she was frazzled, between grandpa calling and wanting her to do things and Faith not napping well or adjusting to being on the go as needed...
I hope tomorrow she can just rest

My morning started out rough, but the rest of the day has been pretty productive.

Bear would not stop barking last night. I know the deer are moving and I figured that's what had him all worked up. Well, apparently it wasn't the whole problem because he was still barking when I got up after 10 a.m. (don't ask hehe) trying to tell me something.

The poor thing... whatever got him riled last night caused a major problem for him.
Apparently, in barking at whatever was in the yard, he got his lead cable all twisted up in knots, into his shedding cotton fur and it was twisted so tight up behind his front right leg it was pulling the hair out. I know it had to hurt. The cable was twisted so tight that either the wires inside had broken, or he'd chewed them trying to get it off himself.
He stood patiently and let me cut it away with a box cutter which took me over 1/2 an hour. He's now happily running loose, which will NOT make my neighbor happy. Can you guess what my neighbor can do if wants to say something LOL

Sounds like a good menu. I'm doing zip tomorrow. More of whatever's left over in the fridge. taco's I believe.


Poor Tam. And if Faith is doing any of the teething Abby is, I really feel for the girl.

Since I missed breakfast this morning, I went into Cindy's for her pre-labor day dinner. There are no choices. YOu get what she's cooking for the day. Today the dinner special was:
Oven roasted leg quarter, 1/2 c. mashed potatoes, serving spoon of sweet potatoes, 1/2 c each of corn and seasoned french-style green beans, 1/2 c. dressing and a homemade dinner roll - (still hot from the oven!) and a bowl of chicken and dumplings for $8.50

I brought the chicken and dumplings home and just ate them a bit ago.

It was very sweet of her. Funny thing is I just got an e-mail from anaRY who is the girl that was supposed to send me the prize. Seems that she had some family matters come up and her adoptive mom was very ill and passed away a couple weeks ago. You would think she would have let someone know that she was going to be gone for an extended period of time. She's on the DT for The Outlawz and Through The Craftroom Door and some other ones also. I went to her blog tonight and saw that she hadn't posted anything since early August. I e-mailed Colleen and told her that I heard from the girl and that I was giving her back her GC to Oozak because I really wanted to get the goodie bag. Not sure how they take it back since it was already sent, but there must be some way to cancel the code number for the gift.

I've completed my first mixed media project and it's posted on my blog. It's my entry for the Sweethaven books give away.

I did, and yes, they all fit. I've got most of them ready to go to the cleaners. I always like to have things cleaned or washed before I wear them. A couple things can't be washed. Two things I really like a lot. One is a black pullover and it has leather across the top - like a yoke but also on the sleeves. The other is another black jersey pullover and has a really pretty black sequin collar. Both can be dressed up or down. Got a gray pullover also with gray sequins on the front, a couple long sleeve shirts for the cooler weather, 2 pairs of slacks, and a couple more tops. I think I'm set for awhile.
