After these items are taken care of I will then start pulling out and making a list of items for Ebay ... Wish me luck ladies,I really want to de clutter, simplify, and be rid of some of this ...
I am so grateful for the nice man in Washburn that offers to list things for me and take care of all of that ...
I tried talking Randy into doing it for me, thought it might give him some thing to do ...

BTW he did get some good news, gained a few pounds, and numbers are better...but he got some not good news about his daughter...Please keep them in your prayers ...
Glad to hear the good news; not so much about the DD. Will send up prayers for them.

Can't wait to see what that looks like. What color green is he using - something pale? I hope he was able to rest some. Is he still sore from the surgery?

We got to the bowling alley last night at our normal time. I did the paperwork for Jack and I. The other couple on our team hadn't gotten there yet. Well, they call us to practice/warm up for 10 min. I told Jack that I was going to check my phone to see if they had called to say they were running late. Nothing. Went back to practicing. Then I mentioned for Jack to check his phone. He ended up calling them...good thing. They forgot about bowling!!! Not sure how you do that...except being busy with something else. Anyway...he said to start without them...they would be there as soon as they could. I have a feeling that if I had called her....she would have said that they weren't coming...period. So, the other team was missing one of their team mates. He arrived and got his stuff out...changed shoes. Jack told me that when this guy got up to bowl first to go ahead and start. Just happened that when he did....I got up...and made a strike!! Just in time...the rest of our team showed up. It rushed her a bit to get her shoes changed and her ball our of her bag...but, oh well!! When we left....they said that if they are late like that again...we should call. Oh wow....are we expecting to do this again? Hmmmm.....
What's up with them?????? I can't believe they would expect you to call them every week to remind them they're supposed to be bowling!!!!!! That's nuts. WTG on your strike! That's great. How'd the team do?

My hips have been bothering me big time lately. I'm thinking that it might actually be from my Skechers. I've been wearing them for at least 2 years now and I can't figure out any other reason that my hips would be hurting. There is a class action lawsuit against them for their advertising, but some people have really had problems with wearing them. This makes me sad because they are so comfortable to wear. Today I took my New Balance shoes to work and wore them when I walked. I sure could tell the difference.

So, I guess they forgot it was Wednesday...oh knows! I have a feeling we'll be looking for new partners for next year. It as because of them that we didn't bowl this past summer on Wed nights. They didn't want to....because they were playing golf on Wed afternoons. It was too hard for them to get to town to bowl. Plus, I don't think she enjoys it much anymore....she just doesn't bother!
Well, sounds like it is about time for them to go. Are you allowed to search for a new couple for this season? Do you know some people who would be interested?

We got our cabinets from Home Depot... Thomasville cabinets... a local contractor is doing all the work... new appliances are two 4-burner cooktops, two wall ovens and above the free standing range a microwave oven, all from Sears.

I can't wait to take pictures to show everyone.
Sounds fabulous Debbie. Can't wait to see it all finished.

WTG! That's great that you got so many done. I don't usually do Thanksgiving cards, but I have a couple that I've had to do for DT. Eventually they'll go in my Etsy shop.

Had a crazy day at the office today. Pretty busy all morning and then my DD stopped by to bring me a Girl Scout order of nuts that people from the office had ordered. The $$ is due on Tuesday so she needed to get it up there. It was great because I was able to collect all the money and she'll be back on Monday to pick it up and bring me some gift cards that I ordered.

Then we had a staff meeting. We are starting using Timeclock on our computers on Monday which will keep track of our comings and goings instead of paper. It's a pretty cool system. I've been saying up there for 25 years that we needed a timeclock.

After getting back from my walk, had lunch and had to finish up some things. Then my computer went out. Found out that "someone" put something on my computer for "remote access." I have no idea who could or would have done that. It's not anything that I know anything about so I know I didn't do it. Took the IT guys about 1 1/2 hours to get that uninstalled and then do a couple scans on my computer to make sure there weren't any viruses. By that time it was almost time to come home, so I finally left about 4:45.

I want to go in and get some more work done on my PSC card.

Good morning Quackers.

Safe journey Debbie!

Soni, that is pretty funny that both you and Krista sold to the same person.

I've got an emergency preparedness activity this morning to learn how to build a Rocket Stove. They are pretty cool and you can cook using just twigs. Here's a link to see one. rocketstoves.org :: stick power *

After that, I'm going to meet my friend Cathyi for lunch. We haven't gotten together for a while, so it'll be nice to see her. She wanted IHOP, so that's where we're going to meet.

I have a few errands to run after and then I'm home to do householdy chores and get some stamping done.

Wow what a pretty day...and I woke up to a phone call with good news for a change : )

Do you all remember my extra grand daughter Kayle...she is the one I was doing an album for when I started Quacking... I worked with her mom, and they are just part of us ... Well I guess I am going to be a "great grandma"

Wow...she is 25, but had not really been in any relationships til the last year... Their life is not perfect but I wish them happiness and God's touch...

Your class project looks interesting. I can imagine those big cans from the canary would work well for this project. Do you have a local canary to you? I know that Deb use to go with a friend to the one near them in Utah.

It was very interesting and luckily the lady's DH worked on getting mine all done for me. It is really hard to cut out circles on those tin cans. We do have a cannery close to us. We call it the Bishop's Storehouse and also the Peanut Butter Factory. It's one of several PBF's around the country that make and distribute peanut butter throughout the world. I didn't have to take a #10 can. She had a bunch donated to her for this project. I could have. I usually get my storage through Emergency Essentials.

Sorry about the rain. I wouldn't mind having some here. It's been dry for awhile now.

I came home and changed clothes. It sure has warmed up outside and I don't want to go back out in heavy jeans. Off now to meet my GF for lunch. Not sure how I'm going to eat. We had bean soup, veggie soup, peach cobbler, artisan bread, cinnamon rolls, and cornbread to try out. They were all delish and all but the artisan bread cooked outside.

Well, I had quite an afternoon. Went and met Cathyi for lunch and had a nice visit with her. Yummy omelette for lunch. I left IHOP to go to HEB to get groceries, and I noticed that my A/C didn't feel like it was cooling. As I glanced up I saw that my temperature gauge needle was moving up toward the HOT spot. I quickly turned around and went back the way I had com to my car dealership. I was lucky because the needle went down as I was driving faster. Luckily the dealership was not that far away from where I had been so it didn't take long to get there. But by the time I got there the Service Dept. was closed. I got out of my car and walked up toward the Quick Lube place to see if anyone was there and luckily they were still open. One of the servicemen came out and I told him what happened so we went to look at it. Turned out that there was a hole in the hose coming from where the coolant goes into the engine. He drove it down to the Quick Lube and made a call to see if they even had the hose and some coolant. This is not generally something that they would handle. God was with me though because they did have the hose and the coolant and were able to fix it up. Lucky that I noticed that because if I had kept driving it the way it was, it could have fried the engine. I am so grateful for His watching over me and that everything worked out so that my car could get fixed without too much hassle. And the Enterprise car loan place is also closed on Saturday so I would have had to find a place to get a rental car. So glad I didn't have to go through all that.

Now, off to take a shower and get things ready for church tomorrow. Then I want to update my blog and get some stamping done.

I did get Brooke home Tammy tried to make me a couple of CD's off of my camera card, one worked not sure what happened with the second one oh well

I got extra snuggle time in with Faith She seemed warm to me , I wish I had brought them both home Tammy goes to gpa's tonite

Randy came up, brought pizza for supper, I missed that... but he left a dozen Krisry Kreme's here so I got an angel filled with chocolate icing to go with my tea... I heated up some pizza first

He went up to Meet The Bomber night , I stayed home, I was hungry and tense, it was dark before I got home, so I was needing to just settle in...

Maggie, HE was with me too, as I do not like to drive after dark, especially near deer season

Yes, I did, but I only bought a few things that I knew that I really needed like fruit, banana, and sliced turkey, and they were out of the cat food that I buy for the outside kitties. Luckily, I still have 1 bad in the garage, so they'll be fine. I'll just stop in one night after work and pick up some more. By then maybe I'll have a list of other things I might need that I didn't get.

Williamsfield school sports "name " is Bombers So this years players and cheerleaders all go , they play a short period of each type of game. basketball, volley ball etc and the cheerleaders are introduced too

I usually go, but Randy did not think he would stay long and I was not sure K & K had room in the van ~ they normally do, but some times they give another kid a ride or I just did not want Randy to feel obligated to staying , he was super tired after his drive home from Indy today...I hear he took a nap here
...and I was tense like I said from the drive in the dark and needed to eat so I stayed home

Maggie, glad you were okay. That happened to me years ago but I wasn't watching & the car just stopped running...in the middle of no where. I was taking Jen to church camp, way before cell phones. I had to roll to a church parking lot & asked at a nearby house to use their phone. Since it was long distance I left her a five. It was a mess getting Bud to help me, while having 3 kids in the back seat worring. But God was with me too & all was well that ended well. I give you big credit for noticing!

Soni, I agree with you; I hate driving after dark. My vision is just terrible at night. Now that the days are so short is really makes getting things done early important.

Going to be a slow day around here today. Things are looking pretty good...always more to do but nothing that has to be done. I put some Christmas on this morning but had to change it...it's just too early. I wonder how Christmasy it will feel down here? Might take a bit to get used to a warm weather Christmas.

Went to Madison yesterday, met another SCSer for lunch at Olive Garden. We were there almost 3hrs. Food was delicious, but the conversation was better. Left there, then ran to get oil changed and groceries. Home and just threw groceries into fridge and cupboards - too tired to worry about locations. But managed to put everything away in the proper place, no fridge foods in the cupboard.

Actually sat and watched TV for awhile last night. Went to bed at usual time, but managed to sleep an extra hour this morning - thank you to my little gals for letting me. But, now I've run out of energy already. Still have dishes to do and want to get the remaining boxes in out of the garage, hoping to get the furniture into the house too, but don't see that happening today. Looks like rain has started.

Was going to make a ham and cheesy potatoes for supper tonight but just doesn't sound good right now. Think I'll make some Hamburger Chow Mein with rice instead - hungry for that.

My son put up his Christmas tree last Tuesday. It's upstairs in his bedroom in front of the big window toward the street. He's been turning it on when he's up there. Of course, with him working at Wal-Mart, he's been seeing & hearing Christmas for over a month now. But still ...

I agree Dody, Christmas is different in Florida, as well as other Southern states ...tho I complain about the cold, I am not sure how much I would enjoy Christmas in those warmer temperatures and sunshine... Of course I still live in the " Christmas is for kids " mode, so SNOW is important lol

I am wondering if Donnie and Sue do come if we will put my tree up right after Thanksgiving ~ I would love for them to see my tree up even if I do not get it all out....The last Christmas we celebrated together was actually in late January many years ago, he came home when one of his sons got married and him and Sue re did their vows ~maybe 16 years ago ...

Somehow it didn't seem wrong going from Ohio (snow!) to Ga (played tennis Xmas day) but maybe it was because we still had kids at home. I felt all the holiday spirt while shopping at Kolh's yesterday but lost it as soon as I went into the 80* sunshine. So I can see why Sue's son feels it's time

Last week we went to a play at Justin & Liz's school. The kids wrote about "What no one can see when they look at me" and Liz turned it into an one act play. One of the essay's a kid wrote about snow...about how no one knew her brown eyes have ever seen snow & how how much she longed to see it in person. I found that so interesting. Back when Justin was dating Marnisha she had never seen the ocean until we took her. We are so blessed! oh...but I have never seen African animals outside of a zoo....hmmmm...
