Maggie, I think I'd be totally exhausted after all you did. I hope you rested well last night!

Maxine... sending lots of extra hugs to you!
Didn't get to bed until about 11 and of course I woke up about 3 but was able to get back to sleep. I was just telling the receptionist, I don't know why I can sleep through the night on the weekends but then have to wake up once during the night during the week.

Maggie, I'm sorry you have trouble sleeping. That's not good.

It's a gorgeous morning here - birds chirping, gentle breeze. I love it! Of course, soon I'll have the washing machine chugging away so it will make it kind of difficult to hear the birds. It's my day to climb Mt. Laundry.

I hope you all have a GREAT day!

The weather has been nice here, not too hot and not too cool, but that's about to change, We've got rain on the way and the weekend is supposed to be WET! Not happy about that. I wanted to get out in my yard and get some more weeds pulled in the front so maybe I'd finally get to plant something. I think this has been the problem all through the Spring - rainy weekends. We'll see how it goes.

Yesterday was the start of my 15 week course on getting certified as a Genealogist and it's going to be grueling! A lot of reading and writing (which I hate doing). I know a lot, but there is a ton more that I don't know. I still have one swap card to do and 1 DT card to do before the end of the month.

hi friends! Yes, it is a 5 cup kind of morning! It's early dismissal at the kids' schools and I just got home!! Still have to walk the dogs, go to the bank, pay bills, go to the farm to get food for the macaw, pick them up (in 2 hours from now), get dd to the FDL to get her permit (she can finally drive herself - mama aint' taking her to college!!) and then it's Scout night for little man. Whew!

Maggie - I wish I could help you! I Love reading! And writing!!! I wish you luck, my friend. Sounds like you are going to enjoy it (once the exam is over)

Waving to everyone since my time is brief today!

I have faced two giants today and 'won' - the solicitor, and there is not much that he needs to do, and the bank, again painless.... Tuesday is the next giant - Work and Income - the Government welfare agency that handles my superannuation.

i am about to go out the the studio and regain some order out there - I really ought to sort all the flowers that were sent and take out the dead heads etc, but that can be tomorrows job!!


Great to keep up on the thread - Kelly I hope you survive the day and everybody gets to the right places at the right times


Hugs to Maggie, Barb, Jeanette , Kel, Kristie and Darlene from a chilly Down Under.

Make a Happy Face! It's Friday!!!

Of course, I get to "enjoy" more hours of this Friday than some of you.
I've been up since 4:00. Sheesh!




Maxine, you're jumping hurdles and doing it so gracefully... you are an amazing woman. I continue to prayer you... and send lots of hugs to my Down Under friend.

Kelly, what's this? You don't want to be DD's lifetime chauffeur?

Barb, I did have a good day yesterday; how about you?

YAY--the weekend is just around the corner! I few errands today, including an open house for the new SU catty at Sarah's! Tomorrow is a 5k fundraiser for the Humane Society and it is supposed to rain--Boo. I am volunteering at the finish line to record the walkers/runners and I hope there is a canopy set up! Sunday, I will plant the pots and baskets for the deck as the plants in the greenhouse are getting very big and need to be moved. There are a couple of petunias even blooming!

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Yes, it's PROM! Been up since 5:20 ~ So much playing through my mind! Dropped kids off at school, went through Bux, turned back to dd's school as it's early release for PROM - hilarious. They give them an hour at school and they go home and get ready for .... 7 hours? LOL! Off to an appt with dd20 - specialist #2 and LAST appointment - then back to get dd from his school then off to take dd to her friends house for the whole picture taking, yadda yadda. It's a really special night for all of them - as with her sisters, we do let them go for the entire weekend and they get a place on/near the beach and enjoy the weekend.

All I'm saying is after this month - and today - I want a room at the beach for the weekend!

I will do my best in all of this madness to get a few pictures of my princess!

Big hugs to all as I dash back out ......... poor dogs are going to have to wait for their "let's make mommy run' walk!

Default Hello

TGIF!!! Hi ladies. It has been a whirlwind week here.

My Mom's youngest brother died last Saturday. We decided not to tell mom right away. We had a brunch here for family on Sunday, and my sister stayed a bit after everyone left, then we told mom. She was hysterical at first, then calmed down, but still quite upset.


We traveled on Tuesday for the wake and mass then a dinner, funeral on Wednesday. We had a luncheon at the church after the burial. It was sad, to see everyone again, as we had gathered just a month ago for my cousins funeral.


All went well, we arrived home at 5Pm ish, mom and I both fell asleep on the couch..lol Mom was ready and in bed by 8:30, but read until 10:00 ish. She slept until 11:30 yesterday! Then she had Physical Therapy, etc....


I am going to try to get to my craft room this afternoon! With that said- I will catch up on the thread later so I can create!


Kelly- I will be watching FB for prom pics!

Shelly

Shelly, I'm sorry your family suffered another loss... seems you've been hit hard lately. I know this has to be hard on all of you, but especially your mom. (((HUGS)))

Well, today is the day - Brock's birthday! He's super excited! He gets presents... and he has a softball game (unless they get rained out this morning)... and Saturday is always his day for cheeseburgers for lunch (either DQ or McD, his choice) and tonight is his annual birthday dinner at a restaurant of his choice. WOW! That's a lot of good times for our guy.

I worked literally ALL DAY yesterday at my computer - first with some State Council minutes and then continuing to create our Association's website. I intend to do nothing but celebrate my guy's birthday today and play with paper/ink. I hope all of you will have as much fun today as I plan to have!

Maxine, still keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I forgot that it's getting chilly there as it gets hotter here, stay warm.

Shelly, so sorry to hear your family has lost another member. Big hugs and prayers to you as well.

Waving hi to everyone else! I have to get my day started - allergy shots, oil change and shopping with Mom. We have 30% off coupons for Kohl's and I have a coupon to use at the LSS that expires next week.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Good Afternoon! It is raining now and it started right at the end of the run. We were done at the finish line and I was helping at the recovery tent--and so glad it was a tent. We were packing up in the rain so I did get a little wet. Temps are only in the high 40's, so it is a bit cool too. Tomorrow it is to be warmer and Monday we are to have 70's and sun, so that might be the day to plant the pots and baskets! I hope you are having a good weekend!

Good Morning SCS Friends! We accomplished quite a bit yesterday. We went for a three mile hike in the morning at the state park. In the afternoon, roomie planted vegetable and flower plants in gardens outside. I planted out pots for the deck--I think there are 18. I ran out of potting soil and there are still some petunia, gazania and coleus plants left, so I need to make a trip to get another bag to plant a couple more pots. I forgot to plant the pots that I sit on top of three crocks that I set out by our garage door, so that needs to get done this afternoon. I am leaving all of the pots in the greenhouse until this weekend so they get a bit more growing time in the warm temps, especially with repotting all of them. I also need to cut the grass today.

I hope you have a great day, a Marvelous Monday!

Good morning, dear friends! Or afternoon!?!!

Got up - battled traffic - to get ds to his well appt at 8:30 and dd20's appt at 8:45. They called them both and put them in two different rooms, opposite ends! There I was, running from room to room. Ds had a well check up, plus school forms for 7th grade to be signed/filled out/shots, PLUS sleepaway camp Boy Scout forms that needed to be signed/filled out, and the nurses were juggling those. DD forgot all her paperwork at home, though I reminded her to bring it, had to scramble to get blood redrawn in office, so while she did that, and middle school isn't that far, I thought let me take him so he's not even later.

Except, it wouldn't be THAT simple!! LOL

I get him to school and hear "Uh Oh, I forgot my lunch at home!"
Me: "I reminded you - twice! Here's $5 - stand in line and buy it."
Him: "But I don't know how - I've never bought lunch at middle school!"
Me: "You're a Boy Scout - figure it out! Enjoy! Get out! Kisses! Byyyyyye!"

LOL! Drive back to the dr where dd still wasn't ready but go. By the time I got off the elevator, the receptionist was like "oh dear me, mom, you look like you need a drink!" It's 9 am. Who says that!!! LOL!!! I smiled and said yes. I do. A triple shot of expresso would help! Found dd, got her labs, headed to Bux and then home to walk the pups who were literally looking at me like "Do you HAVE any idea what time it is?" *waving my white flag of surrender!*

Then I realized the dr's office never gave me the referral to the specialist .......
so I get to go allllllllllll the way back over there again after pick ups! LOL!!!

And how was YOUR morning, girls?!!! hee hee!

Naturally Im' far behind in the threads so I'll wave and sharing sunshine with all of you! ♥

It is totally kicking my butt! It's taking a lot more than 15-20 hours a week. First there are the lessons that I need to read over which have any number of links to other webpages to look at and then of course we have the chapters in the Textbooks to read and take notes on or highlight so I can get back to them easier. The assignments take a lot of research also. I don't get much computer time or stamp time right now. I do have 2 cards that I need to get done this week, so I've got to squeeze them in there somewhere. I do know it will be worth all the effort though.

Glad to see everyone checking in. My weekend was good. I was supposed to have dd and her family over for dinner on Sunday, but my DGD texted me on Friday to say that her GF's birthday was on Sunday and she wanted to spend some time with her and could I go there for dinner instead. YES! They couldn't come here because GF is allergic to cats. I did offer to make the cake and they took me up on that. Much rather do that then have to get the house all cleaned up and figure out what to make for dinner, etc. Worked out just fine.

I did call my yard man on Saturday and left him a very lengthy voice mail which he probably didn't understand. I haven't heard back from him, but since I said that I was going to deduct $30 from his last invoice because he's not cleaning the flower beds as we agreed, I really thought he might get back to me. So I'll write him a note and send it off with my check. I did get out for a little while Saturday morning to pull the weeds from the flower bed around my tree. He also made that much harder because he mows the weeds, so they are hard to pull out. Mostly I had to dig out the nutgrass. I also noticed that there is a big fungus looking thing growing on one of the stones around the bed and I couldn't pry it off. I'm sure he's been letting that grow there for some time now since it's so big! So disappointed in how he is turning out.

Kelly, you sound exhausted and Maggie, you sound frustrated. Might I suggest we all head over to Barb's house and lounge around all her gorgeous potted plants?

Good Morning! Wishing everyone a wonderful day!

Maggie - yikes! Wishing you luck with the lawn guy - not sure what you have growing in the garden, but hopefully it won't bother any of your kitties ♥

Soooooo... how's everybody doing?

I'm a bit worried. I'm not sure what I'll do with all of my spare time today??? Let's see.... I have a meeting this morning, errands and grocery shopping to do, a house to clean, and then another meeting tonight.
