Well hey looks like all is good!!
Jackie -- September seems like a good month for me...what are we planning?
Anything I can do to help out let me know.
Nothing major going on around here except Labor Day time frame.
Otherwise free for the month that i know of so far.

Joy - what's up girl...I've pm'd you a couple times and no response.
Maybe you didn't get them? I dunno.
Just asked how you were and such. Man you should be getting lots of stamping done at home! Take it easy girlfriend.

HELLO TO EVERYONE ELSE

tracy, hmmmm, I've replied to each one I've gotten. I'm not ignoring you, I like you too much Actually, I didn't stamp for 2 weeks, I just couldn't sit up for that long. I"m still in pain, the pain meds don't even help, it just takes the edge off.

All my tests have come back fine. My dr. is sending me to a general surgeon next week to have him look me over and see what the heck is goin on with me. Ugh, all this money for testing, so frustrating.

I'm still truckin though.

yay, September!

Hello Everyone! I'm home. We had a terrible travelling day yesterday. We got up in Rome at 6 a.m. (that would have been midnight here) and finally arrived home safe and sound in Kentucky at 3 a.m. It is now 5 a.m. I slept for one hour--and am now wide awake. Thought I might as well check in. The cruise was wonderful!!!!! Saw the pyramids (Liz did get to ride a camel ), went to the Isle of Capri (beautiful!!!), wandered around three greek islands, saw the Colesseum and other sights in Rome, bought a leather jacket for Liz in Turkey (the men are born salesmen--and could sell anything )), and spent a day of over 100 degree weather in a water park in Cyprus. For those of you who have not cruised--try it! What a wonderful way to travel and be pampered. Hope all is well with everyone, and I will check in later! Joy, I am so glad that your news was good, but so sorry that you are still in pain . Hope someone figures this out for you soon.

Lovely I'm a LIL BOOGER NOW, lol. I have been absent everywhere on this forum trying to resolve some things. Life is starting to settle down finally. So now I am trying to get caught up on the swaps I can get caught up on.

I'm still stamping when I have time. My boss I "loved" so much got transfered and our asst. manager got promoted. Hours have been better but I still don't like the job lol. So I've been just trying to spend time with the family and Michael and just keep my mind off of work.

Michael told me not to long ago that he has hated his job for a year now. So sad because when we first met he really liked his job. So we are doing what we can to just try and get me out of my job and what we can to make his job not as bad.

My brother (I don't really know what I told you about his situation), well he is doing really good now. Not to long ago he just really wanted to end things because his job had closed with no notice. He had to go back to working with his old boss which is a horrible situation. Meanwhile he was applying everwhere that he could but with a DUI on his record and I'm not even sure what else it wasn't easy. SO he has just been really depressed and making me really stressed out because we are really really close. But he has a girlfriend who is awesome and my parents are having him move back in with them. Which is a really really good thing because I don't trust or like his current roomate. I talked to my dad today and my brother got an awesome job with Dave and Buster's. They have even mentioned all the different promotions he could take with the company down the road and he is even considering it. Which is HUGE because my brother has never ever wanted to do anything management wise before. So things with him are finally good and I don't have to stress out as much as I was.

My sister...well I think things are good...I know that she just applied for a loan to get a car. Which is actually a big deal because her and my brother just normally drive one of my parents cars and have never really attempted to buy a car on their own.

Well I think that covers some or most of what has been going on here. I'm sure I'm missing some stuff but I'm sure you don't feel like reading a novel right now lol.

I miss you gals and I promise to be around more as soon as I get my swaps caught up. I do have some other news to share but I need to work out some kinks first.

JOY I cleaned out my pm's so you can pm me whenever. I know I missed a e-mail somewhere I'll have to go look for it.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!

Julia - Your back. Congrats. But I have to say something.
Forgive me but I must. I wrote, PM'd you several times and NOT A SINGLE WORD FROM YOU. That's friendship?? Not in my eyes. Sorry.

Sandye,

Glad you had a great cruise. Now back to watching your weight. LOL. I know about how much people including myself eat on those cruises.


Joy,
I am praying for your recovery. You have to be better by the 19th. Can't wait to see you too.


I will be on vacation thru July 13th. I will try to check in. I know I have not been on much. Still trying to figure out life.

Bonnie

Hey Joy I envy you going on that cruise...Sounds like so much fun.

Jackie - I am waiting to hear from Sam about the shoebox swap but will surely keep you posted.

Sandye - sounds like an amazing adventure. Can't believe Liz rode on a camel!! How neat!

Bonnie - Been thinking about you alot lately and saying prayers for you and Joy that you guys get back into the swing of life.
Take Care ALL and Enjoy the 4th.

I have been on SCS lately, but I have not been checking this site. Got on just now--and found lots of entries! Welcome back, everyone. Liz is gone this weekend--she and a friend's family went to the Olympic swimming trials in Omaha, Nebraska. A boy from Northern Kentucky just made finals and Liz's swimming coach swam earlier today (she did not make finals--and was not expected to), but how exciting to get to watch people you know! I'm very anxious for the start of the Olympics. I love them, plus I love the fact that they are in Beijing (we visited there in 2005, and saw the countdown for this olympics). When we were there, they got under the 1000 days until the beginning. As crowded as that city is, I cannot imagine all of those extra people there. Certainly hope that all will get to attend the September shoebox swap--thanks so much Tammy and Jackie for organizing it! I will love to get to see everyone again.

Hi Girls,

I am back from Florida. I had a great time. We are going again for Christmas. My parents are buying us all plane tickets. YEAH! I hope all of you are having a great summer. I am busy today with just getting back to work. I unpacked last night and repacked for this upcoming HO convention in New Jersey. I have two swaps to do this week for the convention so I will be busy. Has life got back to normal for Julia and Jackie? I am just letting life play itself out and see what God brings me to. I haven't talked to any of you in a long time. Wish I could make the September thingy you are all planning but I still have one mini-vacation, one more vacation and 7 fall weekends of camping. Better enjoy all this since Cindy is planning her college now to be a doctor so I think I will be broke forever starting now. This is when mother's go to work full-time or get a second job. I don't want to do that. We will see what happens? Maybe if I lose some more weight I could sell my body?? ha, ha. Talk with you all soon.

Bonnie

Hey Joy, Glad to see your surgery went well. Have a great trip up to the north. I wish I could go. I would love to see Bonnie.
Sandye how exciting about Liz. I love the olympics too. This year is the first year for BMX. Its fun because I know the whole USA team & now the Latvia team. Hopefully alot of the olympic riders will be intown for the Grands.

Hello everyone! Life is hectic here with Liz's work schedule, swim practices, cross country practice starting, and now "boyfriend!" I'm in the process of moving my stamping room upstairs so we have some place to go when they are here. Life changes as these kids get older! Welcome home Bonnie. Karen, how exciting your summer sounds (busy, hectic, but still exciting!) I hate to say it, but I think I will be happy when school starts. I like getting back into a routine. We certainly do not have one now Anyone ordering from Papertrey? I love the brown cardstock and ribbon, so I guess I will place an order.

Hi! I haven't checked in for awhile.
Joy, I'm glad you are getting about more and can plan a trip somewhere. I hope to see you again sometime.

Bonnie and Sandye, sounds like you both had great vacations.

Hi to everyone else, I haven't read everything to catch up and I don't think I can get completely caught up.

Liam had to go to Riley Children's Hospital to see a specialist and get some tests done. The reg. doctor was convinced something had to be wrong w/ him, since he is so small. He has to eat melted butter, sour cream or yogurt in his food now. He had so many tests run and it was horrible that they had to stick him 3 times and twice just a month earlier.
His liver shows a little high, but not bad. He is low on iron and zinc and has to take a vitamin. He has started to gain more weight since we add those things to his baby food.
When and where is the gathering in Sept.? Has it been decided yet?

Hi Girls,

Joy and I went to the HPC in New Jersey this past weekend and had a blast. We even roomed together with 2 other women. We had the time of our lives. We missed our family back home BUT it was SO much fun hanging out with women 24/7 and not having to worry about kids/dogs/husbands. Hope some of you will come next year. Not sure of the place it will be but probably Texas? It will be held around the same time next year. You don't want to miss it.

Bonnie

P.S. Go on Joy's blog to see just some of the many pictures. http://daiseyfreak.blogspot.com/

Hi Karen,

I didn't think anyone was keeping up on this thread so I wasn't posting. What have you been up to? Me, just a little midlife crisis.

Bonnie

Shay,

That is a great picture of you and your son. How is everything with your son? Last I knew you were having test done on him to see if he was growing o.k.

Hey Bonnie & Shay. How are you guys? Seems like forever. Well, BMX Grands weekend is over.Talk about exhausting But exciting week. Now I can get back to scrapping. I havent scrapped in months. What kinda mid life crisis did you have Bonnie? My husband had one too. He went out & bought a 2 door solara with body kit. Its cute. But I like my mommy SUV. Not much else going on School is in full swing. Homework homework. Take care all!

Hi Karen! Saw your post here, and thought I too would jump in and talk. I've moved my stamping room upstairs where I have a laptop computer. I hate it! Because of that, I'm not on much (I'm downstairs now ). I read, but don't respond. We too are in the midst of homework, homework, homework. Liz is overly involved, but don't try and convince her otherwise. She has too much homework for the amount of time she has to do it, and she starts a two-hour swimming practice (4 times a week) on Sept. 15. Don't know how this is going to work! Looking forward to seeing you on Sept. 13.

Hi Shay and Bonnie!

Sandye

The homework is killing me. My oldest son's teacher sent home an assigment tuesday. Where he has to create an ancient civilization (BC time), discribe it, define it, draw art work, alot of work for just 2 nights to work on it. The project has to be 6 pages long. Then he has vocabulary, math, biology work sheet. I feel like I am back in high school. Liz sounds like she has alot of homework too. Wow and swimming will be taking alot of time away from her studies. Honestly, I wish the kids didnt have so much. MY youngest, 8th grade, luckly is more of an independent student. I cant wait to see everyone too. I am only staying the day. But I thought after we finished that I would hang around for a while, before driving back to louisville.

Then he has vocabulary, math, biology work sheet. I feel like I am back in high school. Liz sounds like she has alot of homework too. Wow and swimming will be taking alot of time away from her studies. Honestly, I wish the kids didnt have so much. MY youngest, 8th grade, luckly is more of an independent student. I cant wait to see everyone too. I am only staying the day. But I thought after we finished that I would hang around for a while, before driving back to louisville.
Karen--luckily for me, Liz does work independently, but her homework and activities are just so time consuming! Unfortunately, her only speed is slow! I feel that I have to nag, nag, nag to be sure that she does get a reasonable amount of sleep. She thinks she can get by on about 6 hours a night, but I push for 8! She is having problems with her knee, so she did have to give up cross county --not enough time for those practices! She should however do about 45 minutes of therapy a day, practice flute for 30 minutes, do about 3 hours of homework each night, practice swimming for 2 hours four times a week (plus 15 minute drive each way), eat dinner, take a shower--see what I mean! She also volunteers two hours a week in a therapeutic horse riding program (30 minute drive each way), has a three-hour band practice every Tuesday, belongs to several clubs and organizations at school, takes a weekly flute lesson, is active in church youth group, and now has a boyfriend. This Saturday is the end of her working as a lifeguard. One thing off of the list! Do the math--it's not possible. I think that's why I enjoy something like the shoebox swap so much--I can go and forget about time. It will be all about me I'm sure with BMX and two children (don't know how you do it!) and working, you are just as busy. Did our parents do all of this? Your son's assignment is ridiculous (that's a retired teacher saying that!). I think that kids should have no more than 1 hour of homework a night--total! Liz also had tons of summer school work. Oh well, enough complaining. I'm going to get back to card making!

Thanks! We have a family portrait in my profile, too. He had tests done and just needs a vitamin and more fat in his diet. He has gained 3 lbs. in 6 weeks. He is doing well.

Hey Sandye, Wow, I think you are so right on the amount of homework these kids get. My oldest last night didnt get to sleep till after midnight. Working on his project. When does Liz sleep. She is swampped too. Then he said he was hungry. So we had a mid night snak. Sometimes I wonder how I do it too. I was working 2 jobs. But the second one didnt pay me enough and was boring. So I left. I like going to the shoe box swaps too. BUT with BMX this summer. Ive had very little time to scrap or stamp. Thats y I cant wait to see everyone. Mommy time. I was off work this week, recop from Grands week. I hate that the week is coming to an end. I want to play more. What are you making for your 3-D swap? I have my card started. Halloween. But I am stuck on what to make. Any suggestions?

Shayk, So glad you son is gaining weight and is o.k.

Sandye, wish I was coming to the shoebox swap but you know all the trips I have taken this summer I could not afford one more. I am going to NJ next weekend to hang out with urscrappymama (Yvonne) and babitoons (Jackie). Michele (deliphas ?) and I think Jessica (sweetpea?) so that should be fun.

Karen, I am glad that the part of my life where I have to spend every minute thinking about kid stuff is coming to a slow halt. My daughter is a senior this year so she is really busy looking at colleges. We will start applying right after the first semester. She is very **** about school work and there is nothing I can say or do to change it so I have to let her do it herself. She is very independent. My son is my hard one and still is.

Bonnie

Hey Bonnie, I am sorry I didnt get back to you sooner. With the crazy wind storm we had here on Sunday. My house has been nuts. I have had my mother in law living with me for 3 days. some of the kids friends have been staying here. Today I had 5 coming and going. BMX is coming to a close for the season next month. Then I will have 2 months off. Yeah scrapping maybe...And then we start all over again.
