that would be a good thing because your girls would not take kindly to that kind of visitor in their yard - terriers are very territorial.... ask me how I know

She's a really sweet girl. The movie was a different experience. It was at a Studio Movie Grill. We didn't eat dinner there. Went to Panera Bread instead before the movie. She had said that it was too much for what they served - burgers and chicken fingers - that kind of stuff. The movie itself was just okay. Not something that I would have chosen to see if I had known more about it. It's really a teen type movie - Young kids in college and parts of it were a little much. The good part was that it was all about Acapella choirs. So the music part was pretty good.

My dinner at Panera though did not really agree with me. I had chicken noodle soup and 1/2 sandwich of turkey and cranberry panini. By the time I got home, my tummy was really upset. I went right to bed and tossed and dozed until about 2 when I ended up in the bathroom. I did feel better after that. Not having that at Panera again.
I don't think I've eaten a sandwich at Panera - I always order the broccoli cheddar soup. Now I see they have a chicken soup too - can't remember exactly what tho - maybe chicken and dumpling - anyway, the picture is enough to make my mouth water.

made another pot of chili today - Jason and I had it for lunch. He's gone uptown now because he has to help tend bar and I'm home alone. It's sooo quiet here. Very peaceful. Laundry is done, do need to wash a few dishes, but that may only take about 15min.

Davina and family are at Chad's sister's wedding. Beautiful day for a wedding, kind of chilly, but at least it's not raining like it has been for the past 3 days. Unfortunately it's not a truly happy occasion for Chad's family. Chad's grandpa died on the 11th and then Chad's step-father passed away on the 18th. Not really a step-father, but the man and Chad's mother have been together for about 16yrs so might as well be. Also Davina lost her uncle on the 12th (my ex's BIL). This has not been a good 4 months for our family - hoping to make it through the end of the year without losing any more family. 2013 will be better!!!

Another funny is most of the frig stuff is getting used up except beer Bud had bought a case of beer for his bird count but then got sick. He went to bed and no one else drank his beer....so I have a lot of beer.

you could always find recipes to cook with it, how about beer bread to go with the potato soup. I have a really good recipe to use beer to make porkchops with brown sugar and ketchup.

Do you remember when we used to use beer to rinse our hair when we shampooed?

My older brother did something like that to my sister when she went to visit him a number of years ago. I don't know if he actually figured it up, but told them they needed to pay him so much for electric, water, and whatever else utilities for while they were there. I think they stayed at his house for a week. We couldn't believe it. But all the times that they came down here and stayed with my sister over Thanksgiving and they never charged him anything! This is the brother that I don't really get along with.

They had chicken noodle at this one. Was very good.

I"m so sorry about all the losses in your families here lately. Yes, I hope you can get through the rest of the year without any more.

I went by mom's gravesite this afternoon to put some new flowers on it. Glad I did cause the ones on there were not in such good condition and not the ones I put on there the last time. I think one of my nieces and grand nieces went a month or so ago. It's going to be 15 years since she passed on November 2. And she would have been 97 in February next year.

I'm with you there. I only do about 2 loads per week. One week it's light colors and undies/towels and then the next week it's dark colors and bedding.

Oh my, my fire whistle is going off here in town - that means there's not enough fire people responding to their pagers. So when the whistle goes off, even people who aren't on the department start responding too. Yikes!!! Just heard the neighbor two house over go screaming out of his driveway. Chad, Davina and Cody are at the wedding so that's 2 firemen that won't be there and the EMTs always have to respond too in case of injuries.

Good evening Quackers.

I had a good day today. We have a really good turnout for our women's Simple Saturday event at church this morning. Only 2 that said they would be there didn't show up. I didn't get a chance to do my 2 crafts, but I brought the stuff home. The girl only brought black paint to paint the candlesticks and I decided I would like mine to be stained, so I didn't do those. After being stained and sealed, you glue a mason jar on the stop and fill it full of candy or whatever you want. Put a ribbon around the lid and decorate if you want to. They are really cute. I got 3 so I'm thinking that I'll make one for each of the girls for Christmas. Then they made those tile coasters. I got the coasters, but didn't have time to do those either so I brought those home to finish. I spent my time working on the Halloween cards that we are giving to a children's hospital. I had 2 ladies helping me and the 2 daughters of one of the ladies. I did most of the stamping and they did the gluing. I did take a bunch of pictures on my cell phone, so I need to get them off of there.

I just drowned a huge spider in my bathtub. It was easy 2" from tip of leg to tip of leg. Yikes!! I've never seen one that big in my house, outside yes, but not in the house.

I'm super excited about getting out again and meeting up with people that I chat with.

I saw it! Ali really is so pretty. Yes, I know how proud Wally is & will always be of his baby girl.

Dody so how does it feel to really be in your new home ?? like a dream come true??Tammy was here today to see Faith and she got to see Ali get ready... but then she got a call, and Mike needed help, his dad wanted to get up, or needed to I should say

Faith was so happy to see her... and cried after she left... breaks my heart...I think Tammy had planned to stay here overnight with Faith...I am sad she did not get to...
It does, thank you! It really feels like home already. I put a few personal pictures up & that felt wonderful. Remember I have had no personal photos out for over 2 years...just not me at all!!! The girls are living in the Play Yard until I feel they know where they can & can not go. They feel secure in there so it works out well. I take them outside for a little walk about 4xdaily. Bud packed the cord to my camera so I can't upload any pictures yet. It's in his office...which has not been touched yet. He is working on the garage now. He got his car in there today but still has to work to get my car in. I carried in 24 Sterlite boxes full of decorations up to my craft room closet today. Sure wish I would have purged better!

That sounds like a very sobering experience for Mike. I hope it helps him understand. I'm really glad the girls have gotten a bit of a break.

He gets a video of a bear walking around the neighborhood, and my only question is ... why was he outside at 1 AM?!

We spent the day shopping and gathering for our trip. We got a lot done. We met one of my best friends for lunch. She made Jaydin a pirate outfit for the cruise, and it is adorable!!! She also made a pair of pjs for Jaydin on pirate night. Jaydin loved the shirt so much that she wore it all day while we were shopping. LOL! It looks like a little dress honestly.

I ordered my dress for formal night tonight .... wanna see??

Venus Diamond Neck Satin & Lace Full A-Line Skirt Sun Dress Medium - Medium - Shop by Size - Dresses


I got the burgundy wine color. I'm hoping it fits and looks good.


I also finished all the plans I needed for my church kids through November. That takes a big load off. I might actually get to enjoy this trip after all.

Oh, I found the lace that Jaydin wanted on the bottom of her dress. I didn't have enough to go around, but got more tonight. So ... I'll actually, really finish that tomorrow.

I think I'm going to call it a night. Got a few necessary chores done today. Got the window fixed for the front porch storm door and the weather stripping put up around the wooden front door - those should help with the heat loss. Have some items that were bought and not needed so will return those to the store and get refund. No boxes were sorted through, but I'm off on Tuesday and I can do it then. But first thing Tuesday morning is an appointment with Larry's attorney. It's a sit down in the attorney's office to go over the division of joint marital property. Be kind of curious to see what he shows as being in his possession and the value he places on those items.

Bud packed the cord to my camera so I can't upload any pictures yet. It's in his office...which has not been touched yet. He is working on the garage now. He got his car in there today but still has to work to get my car in. I carried in 24 Sterlite boxes full of decorations up to my craft room closet today. Sure wish I would have purged better!
Oh but I bet it will all look so nice in your new home

After Tammy left and drove all the way there...she found out grandpa did not really need her there... but she sat with Mike and went through some pictures... She was sad that she left Faith when shr really did not need to ...

yes I imagine this is all very different for Mike... I can only hope it all goes well... I do feel for him, loosing both parents is not easy... but not having a full life with them must be harder

ok Krista picked up her laundry...Keiths dad and Vickie took them out to dinner and to the grocery store too... after Ali left...

Krista is a bit nervous...this is Ali's first time going any where outside of town with Donovan driving... they went into Galesburg to supper before the dance and lock in... another girls mom is bringing her home in the morning...

Faith was so tired tonight, she did not take an after noon nap... but mommy and Ali were here : ) so she has been asleep since 8:00 so I guess I should go to bed in case she wakes up ...

Good morning Quackers.

Worked last night on my new bulletin board for R.S. I need to put up this morning. I made a bookworm. We have a new book called Daughters in my Kingdom published by the church for all the women in the church which is all about the women and Relief Society. We have a challenge to read a chapter a week, so we are using the bookworm to remind the sisters to be reading and I'm putting the chapter headings on it week by week so they'll know where they should be in their reading. At the end, we're going to have a get together and discuss it.


I've got to work on my {Pin}spirational card later when I get home and then after I get home from DD's having dinner there later.

Good morning, Soni. I haven't even raised the shade on the hotel room window yet to know what it's like. We have about an hour and a half before we pack up and head to Sue's for breakfast. We should be on the road home by 1 or so.

he is being considerate of the girls, and helping as long as he is good with the girls I am fine
but I think this is a very hard thing for him... Tammy says he seems lost at times... he did not have a wonderful relationship with either parent...for that I am sorry...

but more importantly, Don is much more at Peace... and once again is alert and knows everyone and responding well So I think this was a very needed visit for both of them...I am sorry Mike had to see his dad so bad the first day...but I believe he needed to ...
I want to say I'm sorry for Mike, and you know that is hard for me. I love Grandpa Don. Sadly, I also know this isn't really a wake-up call for Mike - not like it should be... and should have been a long time ago. My heart and blessings go to you and your girls.

LOL Abby wants no part of standing/ walking holding hands. She'll pull herself up and move around things a bit, but I think she's going to have a lazy streak. We'll see.


she is really smart like Adrian, though. she only has to see you do something a couple of times then she copies it.
