Default All Hail Our Alma Mater . . . VSN Hostess Alum Thread One!

Hey gals! Close bonds and friendships are formed while hostessing VSN and peeps like to stay close when the festivities are finished. There are several mini groups that have formed once a particular VSN is over, I belong to one myself! However this is going to be a general VSN former hostess or hostess/coordinator alumni thread.

Anyone who has ever been a VSN hostess or coordinator is welcome to come and chat and stay in touch with old and new friends.

Let the chatting commence!

Thanks for doing this PS! It feels good, I like what you've done with the drapes and carpet. I'm claiming that comfy chair over there. Now point me to the bar!

Hey, that's my comfy chair, keep your paws off! I had my book open (cracking the spine, I know, shame, shame!) But DD helps me with all my decorating, I'm hopeless at it.

Sounds like a blast and a fun bonding night. Also a much needed relaxing evening.

OMG You call it puppy chow, too. I used to make it in my classroom with my fifth graders. They loved it! MY DH loves it, too. I had forgotten about it. Great activity for you and your DD.

Oh yes, how sad am I? I check the Book Club Overflow thread a couple times a day to see if any of my old friends are chatting. LOL I like our new place. Pass me a martini.

You're the one who sent her the martini cards....thought that might qualify.

Anyone reading a new book this week? I'm reading Grisham's Playing for Pizza(in my purse wherever I go book...it's small) and Sandra Brown's Ricochet(sitting on the deck in the sun book). The one by my bed is a Nora Roberts. The second in the Key trilogy.

I make excellent margaritas but I hate alcohol so I make a pretty good bartender/designated driver.

JoAnn ~ I haven't started it yet, but I have The Thirteenth Tale to read. I think it's a grown up fairy tale, of sorts. My mom recommended it.

I'm trying very hard to keep busy this holiday week-end. Stamping, reading, sunning, partying.... Wednesday will be the very first time I will not be going to the first day of school since I started kindergarten in 1956 and though I think I was ready to retire, it still is kind of sad. I am however; subbing on the second and third days so I'm looking forward to that.

HAVE A FUN AND ENJOYABLE HOLIDAY WEEK-END!!!!!

OMG, Jo, we've done it again. I just put that book in my GO bag. When DH and I travel he loves to be read to. He says I do great voices and intonation. So I picked that for the read aloud. I did, however, also download Treasure Island audio book from Itunes with Alfred Molina doing the voice. Boy, we are on the same wave length for sure.

Easy, partner, easy. It took me a year and a half to get it out of my system. Now, your body is telling you to rest so just listen to your body, okay, Jo? Do what you can but then rest. I know, I'm scheduled to volunteer again this year, I'm supervising senior interns, and I'm still working with principals. It's something you don't easily shed.

Hi Girlies! I've missed my pals!! How are you all? JoAnn, I'm so impressed with how you can read so many different books at once. Amazing! I'm still reading the first Janet Evanovich - One For the Money, I think. I'm a ridiculous drunk, so I'll have a Vente Passion Iced Tea, Shaken and Sweetened, please!! Yummmm-O! JoAnn, I'm sorry that you're sad about not starting school on Tuesday. Honestly, I remember when I first retired from my job, I thought I was going to go crazy with boredom. Then, about six months later, I couldn't remember what it was like before I retired. I love my life, and you will, too!!! I hope the rest of you girlies are enjoying your holiday weekend. Youngest DD is home for the weekend, and brought two weeks worth of laundry. Oh joy! LOL

Good evening ladies. Just home from a nice dinner out with my sister and her husband, my oldest nephew and mom - and of course my dh. Lovely dinner, great conversation -
Glad I found this thread - thanks for the link PS.
Oh, and Joann - yes - I JUST started another book by Fern Michaels tonight - heading up stairs to read. Good night all.

Good (Holiday week-end) morning to everyone who has found their way to the lounge. Off to grocery shop (ick), maybe do the IC and then kayaking for the afternoon. We are supposed to have our hottest week of the summer starting today.

Hey girls! Just sitting around pretending I don't have to clean house. My FIL and my mom are both coming today. The hurricane is supposed to get to the Gulf tomorrow so maybe we'll have a better idea what's going on then. I'd love to stamp, but I don't think that's going to happen! I haven't made a card since last weekend.

Hope y'all are having a nice Saturday!

What a great idea. Once place to chat with all the friends made over time with VSN. Things are starting to settle down so I can have some time for stamping and chatting. Catching up on reading - had 10 Guideposts series books and down to the last 2.

I'll take a cup of relaxing tea with a muffin and some of my mother's home made raspberry jam on it please. Anyone else?

Karolyn, my daughter made it a point of pride that she took enough socks and underwear to school to be able to bring home her laundry instead of doing it at school. Guess who winds up doing it most of the time? However she is a champion at cleaning house and if I tap into her for help I get it. When she's around. This summer she worked two jobs.

I like some of the book recommendations, I'm going to have to look into them. I'm desperate for a good read. Last book I read was a Margaret Maron mystery. Nice, but very light.

This weekend . . .DH needs to find something to do. Its a holiday weekend and he's bored and JoAnn I bet he wishes he lived where you do so he could go kayaking. Have fun with that!

I am content to spend the weekend catching up on laundry and putzing around the house. We traveled enough this summer for me to fill my travel tank and I don't wish to go wandering about.

I hope the hurricane blows itself out and doesn't affect too many of our friends!

We're plotting and planning for the storm. I have Lee's cell number if we can't get online for some reason and will let her know what we're doing. My mom and, I hope, my brothers are coming here tonight. We might stay here depending on the projected path, plus what the weather guys are saying off the air, or we might hit the road ourselves. The name of the game is beating the mandatory evacuations. You're just in gridlock if you try to leave with everyone else.

Good luck to you and yours, Paula. We've had enough destruction lately and enough worries about our girls here. Who else is possible in harms way? Be safe.

The wind kicked up so no kayaking until evening, Karolyn...at least hopefully we'll get out for awhile.

It looks like there is a lot of rain hitting Florida right now. The storm track shows Gustav going to the west side of Louisiana, which is why they are evacuating New Orleans because the east side of the storm is always the strongest, so if it follows that track, things will be bad in that city. Alabama might get some bad weather too depending on just where it hits landfall, otherwise it will be Texas.

Watching it carefully. So many of our gals and their families are from those states.

We had bad thunder storms here in Orlando all day. Jean is on her way to Tennessee, so she should have avoided it all. Gustav is a category 4, close to 5 hurricane right now. That's not good. Nobody seems to know what Hanna is going to do, so for now we're just watching her.

For everybody in Gustav's path, stay safe. If you're not evacuating, be sure your hurricane box is stocked and ready.

Thanks for the update Pat. I haven't checked in awhile...didn't realize it was so close to a 5.

I think it is a 5 now. Hoping we know by tonight what we're doing. My mom, a cat, and one of my brothers are definitely coming here tonight. My middle brother, his fiance, and a hamster might be coming tonight, but I don't know yet. Jeff has to stay at the tv station for the storm. Not overly excited about that, but he should be safe. Heck, he might get more sleep there than he has been here at home.
I cannot wait for December 1!!!! Stay safe everyone!
