Thank you all for the birthday wishes. You guys always find the most wonderful blinkies!

Going out to lunch today with one of my GF's here at work. Boss has mediations scheduled for the next 3 days and then out of town on Friday. That's gift enough.

Tomorrow I have lunch plans with 2 other girls here at the office, one is the paralegal I work with and the other is our receptionist that I'm good friends with. Thursday night is our Single Chicks dinner, so I'll spend some time with my Single GF's and then Friday, I have lunch plans with a bunch of my family - my DD, my SIS, and a bunch of my nieces. We're going to the Cheesecake Factory. My sis has never been there! <horrors> It's also her birthday celebration since she just had hers on the 12th of this month.

YAY!!! We're all going to be together! Truthfully, I'd love that, no matter where we were - well, except maybe prison.

Good morning! I was so tired last night so went to bed early. I had been up quite late the night before for no good reason.

LOL! Jeanette, hopefully prison is one place that we won't meet up with each other. Gotta find a way to get Maxine to the states!

Good Morning Fellow Carriers of Faith!



Maxine, that's very strange about the computer issue - glad it's disappeared now.

Shelly, I'm glad you checked in last night - and hopefully you slept well for that earlier-than-usual lesson today.

Maggie, hmmmmmmmmmmm... I'm pretty sure the best way to get Maxine to the US is NOT to call 911. No matter what story we concocted, it wouldn't be a good idea. We might ALL end up in prison for doing so.

What's this? I'm gone all morning and I read Jeanette is going to PRISON! That is a shame! At least we'll be able to send cards - fret not!!!!!!!

I love Cheesecake Factory - I'm happy to be invited to your bday party, Maggie! Wouldn't that be swell! Maybe if the summer plans work out, I'll get that wish ♥

Rushing through, dd19 is home sick and didn't make it to classes. I checked her last night and she was burning up. She's home sick with that bug going around the school with her students and now she wants mama. And my homemade chicken soup! so that's on the stove and bread is going in the oven next - yum ♥

Hmmm. . . looks like you may have posted in the wrong thread, or the right thread with the wrong title on it. But then again, I am a Carrier of Faith!

LOL! No, I don't think I would want to call 911. But I remember the day when my wallet was stolen and I called 911 because I didn't have any other number for the police to call. Then I had to call back, so I just called the 911 number again. I said, I don't want to be calling you guys, but I don't have another number for the police! They didn't get mad at me or anything Were very nice.

I so do hope it works out. You need to let us know when you're going to be travelling. I'll be travelling to CA on November 12 through the 16th.

Sorry that DD17 is under the weather, but sounds like you have just the thing to help make her feel better.

Good afternoon : )

I made it through the early AM piano lesson- I did not do so well- I usually get warmed up before I go...I feel bad- she always has me doing so much, we go 45-60 minutes each session instead of 30....... Next week, she is going to start me on Christmas music..... !

Ok-well, who gets to judge who is an idiot? Cause, I think almost everyone could end up in Jail in that case- just by looking at someone the wrong way or whatever...... Hehehehe Well, is their stamping in jail?

Kelly- so sorry your daughter is sick- I hear there is a flu going around now.... we are so behind at work, hope I do not get it!

MMmmmm I love the salad wraps at the cheesecake factory. Hope you had a good Birthday meal Maggie- glad you did not cook on your B-day too.

Ok- off to finish picking up- cleaning ladies are coming shortly. I have a roast in the crock pot- the aroma of garlic is in the air- mmmm making me hungry.

Waving hello to all
Shelly

Kelly, I've already been to prison, remember? LOL! Oh... and IF you send cards, they'll have to be one layer - no glue allowed! EEK! I'm sorry your DD is sick... but yum!

Shelly, so glad you survived.

Maggie, you make me smile!

Wish I had only to pick up before the cleaning lady arrived - trouble is, I am the cleaning lady - at lest I have finished work for the day on that score, and it's a cold meat meal coming up - then it's on to continuing to clear space for DD and family to move in..... Amazing what is going OUT!!

I hear ya Maxine. I keep trying to get a cleaning lady, but it's not working out.

I don't know where I'd start if I had to start getting rid of stuff. My GF that I was out to lunch with yesterday said that I'm the only single lady she knows that has a 3 bedroom house and still wants/needs another room!

I didn't tell you guys about what happened yesterday after being out to lunch. We went to Luby's (cafeteria place). I love going there because their food is really good and they have such a variety. Anyway, my GF always likes to get a container of sweet tea to go from there. So guess what happened! Yep, she spilled it. All over the passenger seat and herself! I had a box of tissues in the car so we used those to try to blot it and clean it up, but it was still all wet. The tissues were the kind that had lotion in them and this morning I noticed that the seat had a big kind of white spot in the middle.

I decided today that I needed to take it somewhere and get it cleaned up. I asked my boss this afternoon. He's lived in the area forever and knows everywhere to go. He told me about a car wash place right across the street in the Galleria. I called and then took it over to them. They did a great job. The spots are all gone and it smells like new again! Be sure though that no one gets in my car again with food or drink except water! Speaking of water, I had a bottle of water in my car when I took it over there, but it wasn't there when I picked it up. I think that they just took everything out of the car to clean it and then forgot to put it back in.

Maxine, I am "her" at my house, too.......... but sure wish I weren't.

Maggie, I'd be crying if a mess like that happened in my car. (((HUGS)))

I have a great excuse- when the dust hits the air, makes me have trouble breathing- as in asthma......so I have a cleaning lady come- just once a month though..... Dang allergies

Maggie- so glad they got that spot out of your brand new car - Yikes!

Class 5 down and one more to go- it is pretty boring- but we do hear good tips about tutoring in general......

My twins turn 26 tomorrow- no longer on insurance, so had to run get a prescription straightened out and picked up while Kt is 25 and 364 days...... and will get a box out to China tomorrow..... Can someone tell me where the years have gone- just flew by so fast!

Jeanette- you have been in jail? What was it like??? hehehehe We tried to start watching Orange is the new black- a bit trashy, so just stopped.....

Hugs
Shelly

Jeanette - you in jail?? What did you do???

I get asthma too, but not so bad I can get a cleaner - thankfully. Shelly my two are now in their late 30's - dunno how that happened either.

Maggie I flinched when I heard about your car - so glad it was 'cleanable'.

Here in N.Z we must carry our licence the whole time we are driving - the other day I went to an appointment and on arriving discovered I did not have my wallet in my handbag, which meant no licence - I was not far from home (5 minutes) and had never seen a police check between where I was and home. 3/4 hour later I was en-route home and what ho - there's a police check ahead that I cannot avoid......ARGHhhhhhhhhh. I think my angels worked overtime, as the driver ahead of me got stopped, then pulled to the side and I got waved through - what a relief!!!

The house is clean, the washing and ironing up to date (for a few minutes) and tea will be bread and point, having had our main meal at mid-day, so the evening is mine Bliss

Good Morning Friends!






Whew! So glad you got waved through, Maxine. I was sooooooo nervous, just reading your tale!

Shelly, I have allergies... I think I need a cleaning lady, too.

Have I not told you ladies about my prison experience? Oh my! Surely I have. I was soooooooooooo excited to go to prison! Our state exec took the missions group three Vice Presidents to prison - in Arkansas. Hmmmmmmmm... now I think of it........ we were "vice" and went to "prison". I wonder if she was trying to tell us something??? LOL!

Anyway, we spent several hours in a women's prison - in a barracks that was quite unique, I'm sure. We were there to learn about the program - it is a Christian focused program and inmates have to apply to be in that barracks. Oh my goodness! I've never experienced worship like I experienced it with them that day. They have worship and Bible study EVERY day. And then to meet with their core group of leaders - all inmates. WOW! Their stories and the women they've become since finding the Lord while incarcerated. It gives me chills even now to think of it. One gorgeous young woman perched on the edge of her seat and looked each of us in the eye and said, "You need to tell my story - out there. Because that's something I'll never be able to do. And I want people to know my Jesus." (She has a life sentence with no chance for parole.)

Yep, I've been to prison........ and it's definitely changed me!

FYI - I am leaving early tomorrow for a 2-day out-of-town workshop and some meetings. I'm really looking forward to what I'll be learning! That being said, I won't be on SCS again - after today - until Monday. I hope your weekend will be FANTASTIC!

For me "iron" is a 4-letter word and I don't do any of it. I guess it's okay since it's just me in the family. If I can't wash & dry it, then I take it to the cleaner. Some things I wash and then take them for "press only." My ironing board is set up out in the computer room, but it's a catch all for stuff. I never use it to iron.

Sorry about all the allergies out that that prevent you guys from cleaning your house. I have allergies too, but they don't flare up when I clean - darn it!

Jeanette! What a powerful story. I'm sure you heard some good ones while you were there in the prison. Can't imagine being incarcerated and knowing that you will never get out of there.

Hope you enjoy your weekend away!

Maxine, we are supposed to have our license with us at all times too when we are driving, but we don't have police checks where they stop people to check for them. Sometimes I wish they did because the immigrants into our country cannot get a license and they still drive and cause accidents and if they have no license, then they have no insurance either.

Shelly, glad that you're almost done with your classes! Do you have a test at the end that you have to pass?

Both my girls are in their 40's! Talk about a shocker whenever I think about that. They both still look about late 20's early 30's to me.

Oh Maggie, I totally agree! Iron is a 4-letter word!

And yes, the stories from those ladies were so very touching!

What in the world is going on over here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jeanette is going to prison (again) but this time will be on the other side of the bars, Maggie's car was almost ruined and now I don't know where I'll eat my cheesecake once I get there, Shelly doesn't know how she got older......um....do we try to explain?, Kelly is making chicken soup for everyone - so after cheesecake we all head to her house, Barb LOVES camels, and poor Maxine and I are just reduced to cleaning ladies now! WHAT A DEAL! LOL!!!

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Hi Ladies--late check in for me today. I went for breakfast and coffee with the "boys" in the town where I used to teach and then had a haircut there at 8:00. I then went to church to fold, label, stuff and stamp letters for mailing for our Pay It Forward dinner in November. Came home and cut the grass--it is in the mid 50's today and the lawn was really long as it has been too cold to cut the last week or so. I am hoping this might be the last cut of the season. Off to work on a swap--I need to inky fix!

I also want you to welcome Kel--KAcopan--to this blog group. I, along with Maggie, Jeanette and Kelly are in another blog group with Kel. That group has become very inactive and I asked Shelly if she minded if Kel joined us here as a Stamp Addict! I am sure Kel will stop in and tell everyone more about herself as soon as she can--she is a new mama with a baby boy less than a month old! Thanks in advance for welcoming her. Maybe she can even join us at the Cheesecake Factory!
