Ugh you too huh? The only good thing about today was that SHE was not there today.

Iced coffee sounds great! I think I may go to SBUX in the morning for some Hot Chocolate

I am hoping to be there for some of the time. I likely won't stay at a hotel, but should be able to drive up for Sat. or Sun., whichever works out best for whatever activities we will be doing. Thanks!!

So ~~ shall we change my Ho name to Klutzy? I do like bucky better, but feel like a klutz today, got my new microwave (yay) and well, *tried* to get it in the apartment had it on dad's cart, and dropped the stinker (I have more vulgar words for it I can't say) right over my left foot. It's KILLING me. Took Ibuprofen right away, and there's a bag of tater-tots sitting on it (best I could do and it was the cheapest thing in the freezer) SIGH!

I can't keep up with this thread but I just wanted to let the hos know I'm thinking about you! It is looking less and less likely that I will be able to make it to HPC. We haven't sold our house yet and $$ may be tight...

Hope everyone is having a great spring.

LJ, I came up with a card, but I hated it, so I tossed it, I can only think of one color combo to use, and I suck with that color combo, so I'm trying to come up with something else............

I'm in a major funk right now with my mojo.....this dang headache doesn't help, and WORK SUCKS. I am seriously over being a therapist right now.......

That color combo wouldn't have bold bright colors in it would it? I've colored it 3-4 times already.

WHat's the copyright requirement? Do I just need to give credit to them in my narrative with a link or do I need to do watermark or something?

I think you're good to go if you state that it's an ISS image, not everyone has a watermark

I found DP, and I have a sketch to use, so I'll see what I come up with!

ok, just need to vent, we all know that I just *adore* my MIL, UUUUGHHHH

she drives me bonkers, when we call her and leave a message, she 1. never calls us back or 2. calls 1-2 weeks later and she NEVER calls us unless she needs something

she called the other day, left 2 messages, first message was inviting us out to eat- STRANGE, she never does that, well what do you know, 5 minutes later, leaves another message asking my DH to come fix her computer

she has called EVERY day since, leaving messages on the machine asking why he hasn't called her back......

oh, and when my DH had car problems, she couldn't help him out, but a couple of weeks ago, his brother has car problems, she GIVES him her car- not to borrow- TO KEEP.

I'm too nice to say anything, but I seriously want to pick up the phone and scream at her- I actually yell at the answering machine when I listen to her messages......and my DH is too passive to say anything, but that's his mom, he can't help it if she's looney.

ok vent done.

MOrning ladies, I'm off to UCare to get my foot checked out - probably x-rays. It's TOTALLY out of my way, and the ER is much more closer, but SIGH - that's $60 more I could spend on stamps. Will post update later, planning on going to work afterwards.

REALLY big *hug*
Wouldn't it be great if we all had a combination of Carol Brady and Mrs. Ewing for a mother in law?

Maybe she'll be nicer when you guys have kids. Or maybe you'll just have a really, really good excuse to make absolutely no time for her!

It took being married for a few years us having two out of three of our children for Chris to even attempt to half way stand up to his parents.

After his mom said "well, look on the bright side... it'll be a great tax write off!" when we told her that we were expecting Bubba (and she knew that we'd been trying and had started fertility sessions), he finally grew a pair and stopped letteing her be such a ******.
Now she's daffy and more than a bit senile, and still not a ball of sunshine, but he'll ignore the phone and conveniently have other plans when she calls and he doesn't feel like running to their aid.

There's light at the end of the tunnel for you guys, even if it's still a ways off.
..and who knows, maybe actually telling her off in a nice, calm voice, using simple words, might get you some leverage! LOL
That one I haven't done, only because Ward clamped his hand over my mouth and drug me out of the house...

I missed something... I hope you're okay, Laura Jean! *hug*

Thanks Roberta, at least I know I'm not the only one whose MIL drives them bonkers. It just sets the example of how I DON'T want to be with my kids. Maybe some people are happy that their in-laws aren't really a part of their lives. At least she's not butting into everything I guess. I had surgery last June, she called in October to see how I was doing....oi!

LJ, hope everything goes ok today! Wowzers, I can't imagine that pain! Take it easy!

Hi girls, I'm at work. Xray showed hairline fracture. Wrapped good & they will call me after the radiologist looks at the film to see if I need to get it casted or not.

Roberta ~ dropped new microwave on my foot last night

It's KILLING me. Took Ibuprofen right away, and there's a bag of tater-tots sitting on it (best I could do and it was the cheapest thing in the freezer) SIGH!
