Janet, I bet the chicken was delish!

I got a lot done at school today - tomorrow will be a busy day, so won't get much of my own things related to class done - so I tried to do as much as possible today.

After I got home, Gary and I went to the new house to look at a couple of things. It is really cool here this evening, and cloudy. It's only about 55 with a VERY brisk wind, so it feels really cold to us thin-blooded Texans! LOL!

Then we went to Home Depot to look at tile. I'm still deliberating about the color of tile to put in the new house.

After that, we met the kids at a Mexican restaurant for dinner. My enchalidas were just so so - but Emma's french fries were really good!

Now, I'm too tired to do much of anything, so I'm veging out in front of the computer.

I went to Dae Lynn's this afternoon to try and finish our painting. Ha ha!!! It seemed like something came up every little bit to interfere so we didn't get as far as we would have liked. I'll have to go back next week and get it finished.

One of the things I had to do was go to town and pick up Feyn's kids, Karley, Kiley, and Elijah. When they got to Dae Lynn's Dean was so glad to see them that he gave them lots of slobbery kisses!! Elijah got more than his share......I guess Dean was happy to see another boy!!!

After that I came home and got ready and went in to church. I'm in the nursery on Wed. nights. Tonight I had Maddy, a two year old little girl that's always saying "I sorry!!" She's so cute!! And I also had a 1 year old little boy named Hunter. He got tired so I gave him a bottle and he fell asleep. I guess that he'd been out with his Papa on the combine and had a big day. After church we ran to the grocery store and then took little Karlie home!!

And now......here I am......up too late on the computer...................AGAIN!!!!!

That's what I'd like to know...I need some of that energy. I didn't get the casserole made last night because I looked at the motorhome, so I'm fixing it today for Ricky and I for lunch.

Don't really have anything that absolutely needs done today.... so I may not do anything at all. I don't know.

I think that I've been sleeping better and therefore I feel better. I have some sleep apnea but if I sleep on my stomach then I don't have much trouble. I've been doing that since last spring and it really has made a difference in how I feel. I also think that it's helping me lose a little weight because I do feel like doing things.

I love doing things with Dae Lynn and the kids......she's like a best friend right now and willing to go and do things with me. I enjoy that. I also enjoy helping my kids out with whatever they're doing!!

I was also thrilled to pick up Feyn's kids after school. They are sooo much fun to be around but are so busy with other things that I don't see them as much as I should even though they just live down the road from me.

Today I have Dean while Dae Lynn cleans at the church. Just him and me!! I'm finding out that my house isn't very baby-proof!!! I really need to be cleaning because I have care group on Sunday evening and I think that we have another hay ride on Friday evening.....plus we have harvest going on so I'm on call to help do shuffling and other things!!

I'm also trying to get some things priced to take to my flea market booths......and it's going very slowly. I'll probably be going to Joplin next week sometime........Boy....I AM busy!!!!!

Looks like we've all been keeping busy!

I took yesterday off work because work has slowed down so much. My dad came into town Monday night and had a doctor's appointment here Tuesday. So after work we met at my grandma's house, with my brother, his girlfriend, and the little girls, and my aunt and uncle, and we ordered some pizza Then 8 of us went to a hockey game. The 6 year old brought in a little notepad and pen, and she was just drawing away, and then she put it up in the air with a huge smile on her face... she had written "GO CANADA GO" hahahahaha! It wasn't exactly "Canada" playing, but we were playing an American team (Spokane) so I guess it worked!

Scott and I went back to my grandma's house to play cards with my dad, uncle, and grandma for a few hours, and we spent the night there. Scott got up early to go to work, and I slept in until 8:30 and then went for breakfast with my dad and grandma. Then we went shopping. I found some great deals on last year's model of snowboards and bindings, so I think I will buy one this weekend! We also went to find a new dining room table for my grandma, and did lots of other random shopping with my dad. We went out to eat after everyone else was off work and then my dad was going to head home and we also headed home.

It was probably 8:30 or so when we got home, and I still had dishes to do (we had a boil water advisory for the past week, so there's a counter full of dishes to wash!) but I just loaded up the dishwasher a little more and ran that... I'll hand wash the big stuff tonight.

This morning felt like Monday lol! The 4-hour webcast meeting didn't help first thing when I got to work, but I can just think there's only one more day and then the weekend! I should really take every Wednesday off lol... it breaks up the week nicely!

I have to confess that I after I came home from the bus route (and getting my flu shot) that I came home and slept most of the time. I woke up at 1:00, ate some lunch and then went to pick up the kids.

I slept in this morning Oops. Somehow my alarm was shut off. Scott's went off once but neither of us remember hearing it. We use our cell phones for alarms because the power goes out so often. Somebody called (wrong number) and we both wondered who would be calling so early. Then he said "Look at the time on your phone!" I looked... 7:59 Work starts at 8! I got ready as fast as possible, drove into town, and we were both an hour late But we're both well rested!

Sounds like the crazy work hours you were having have gone away Linds! Great! Relaxing is so important.

Isn't if fun to have the kids over Diana? I would just love to get a wet Dean kiss! How cute he sounds!

I had mine on the weekend, and they are just so much fun! I am beginning to teach them to get their own drinks, snacks, etc. The two little ones seem to ask for something every other minute, and my legs hurt! Mackenzie can do it for them, but I like to give her a break when she comes here. So much falls on her at home. I bought an air mattress, and Brandon and Kassidy sleep on that on the living room floor, while I sleep on the couch. They are afraid to sleep without me, and my bed is too small for all 3 of us. This works out great, and Mackenzie has her room upstairs and feels so grown up! Jess and Steve have not been getting along, so they needed a couple of days to talk. They made up, so it was a good weekend for all.

Yesterday, I put thermal curtains up on all my downstairs windows. I had to shorten the kitchen drapes, but I used velcro to hem them. I hate sewing! I used those spring rods for the windows, so there was no hanging of rods. I did put a rod up over the patio doors, which 1) stayed up and 2) came out even! It seems that wall is not easy to screw things in, but I figured it out. I will glue the screws in if I have to! I can do these things, but this is the first curtain rod job I did. Anyway, I think it is much warmer already. I hope they help because I am really cheap about spending money on fuel! It is very dark in here now, but it is so cozy too. I can open the patio drapes anyway if I want. The drapes are from Family Dollar. They go behind my real curtains, so why spend money on them? The patio drapes were on sale in jcpenney.

Today, I am going to hang a mirror on my bathroom door. Wish the door luck!
Then, I may hang a big picture I found at a flea market and framed.

Either the walls will collapse or it will all work!

It sounds like you had a good time with the kids, Judy!! I keep kids glasses at a lower level so that even the little kids can get their own drink. It works out great and I don't have to get up and down.

It sounds like you're still decorating!! Wish I was there to help you put up the curtains and the pictures. I love doing that stuff!!

I use a lot of tension rods too. I don't like having the marks on the walls and they work great!!!

You know......I haven't forgotten about your little tin box. I got to a place where I didn't know what to do but I will get it finished after Christmas. What I have done is so cute and I know that you'll love it.....it's just figuring out the last little bit!!!


Lindsey....I'm sure that after all of your long hours that there's very little that could be said about you coming in an hour late!!!


I woke up with a headache this morning. We've got a flu that's going around our family and I hope that's not what I have. I wish that it would either get better or worse because I have to clean for care group on Sunday evening. If I get worse then they'll have to find another place to have it....or....if it gets better than I'll feel like cleaning. Bummer!!!!

Let's see...what did I do today...oh...laundry as usual, put dishes away, paid bills, read the first 6 chapters of Matthew, played on computer some and then took a nice long hot bath. Now I'm back on the computer. The boys are with the Scout troop but I don't think they are spending the night.....bummer.

I ran around looking at some more tile today. I think I have found what I want, but now am trying to find it at a cheaper price. Here is a link to a site where there are some good pictures of the tile. We like the darker color, Desierto the best, but if we go with this tile, we will put down a few of the lighter Saguro tiles, just scattered in ramdomly. http://www.marazzitile.com/series/su...ltillo/docFile

After running around, it was time for Emma's birthday party at Arrowhead Ranch. Oh My! 10 four year olds. It was a lot of fun. There were pony rides and stage coach rides. Here is the link http://www.arrowheadranchonline.com/index.html. You can see the little red stage coach. Believe it or not, that was the kids' favorite. I think they were a little afraid of the horses, although there was a little shetland pony. Of course, Emma rode the horses a dozen times! There were also goats, chickens, and rabbits to pet and feed. Then they went into the "barn" for cake and presents. It was a very easy party and the kids had lots of fun!

After the party, Gary and I went to the new house. They inspected the septic system on Thursday and it had some problems that were fixed on Friday, so we went by today to look things over. The inspector still has to come back on Monday to sign off on the inspection, so it hasn't been covered yet. They didn't make as big a mess of the yard over it as I thought they would. I know we are going to have to do some work on the septic in the future, but I think it will be OK for 4-5 more years.

Finally, we came home and are watching TV. Kansas State is beating up on my football team. . My other team is getting beat too, so it's not a very good football day. I need to go to the grocery store, we don't have any milk or bread!

Today I spoke with Lynne for a bit and then went to Lafayette. Bought one of those utility tubs to give the dogs a bath in. I was giving them one in the bathtub, but it's getting harder on my knees and back. This should make it much easier. Bought a couple light bulbs...lol..how exciting.....right? LOL. Felt good to get out. Hadn't really been out by myself since I went to Diana's. Now I'm watching the Colts game.

Well yesterday I went and met my son who had my Mom with him. Now she is here with me!!! Tomorrow we are leaving for Tennessee. She wants to go see the Christmas lights! We will be camping there until Friday. We're gonna have fun. She deserves a little getaway time after the past several months. I know it's only been 3 weeks since Dad passed away but she really needs to get a way for a few days and she absolutely loves Christmas lights.....and there are over 5 MILLION lights there from Nov thru Jan.
I will post pics
Today we packed the camper after I took her to church. It has been a good day

Gayle, the tiles look great!! Can't wait to see them in your home!!!..........What a great place for a birthday party!! I bet the kids all loved it!!!........I have one other thing to say...........GO, K-State!!!!! LOL

Janet, I'm sure that you enjoyed getting out for awhile....even if it wasn't to get very much!! Who knows....you may learn to venture out more in your own area because if you can drive ALL the way here you can get around more there!!!! Have fun!!!

Paula, I'm sure that a few days away is just what your Mom needs. She's been through so much that a change of scenery will be nice not only for her but for you as well!!! The first year is always the hardest after losing a loved one. One of these days check on the internet about grieving.....it's a process and we go through many different emotions in dealing with our loss. Don't think that you're going crazy or should "just get over it" because that's not the way we deal with death. I learned so much about grieving when I had a miscarriage 20 years ago. Check it out when you're having a really tough day. Hugs!!

We went to church this morning and after church drove to Independence to eat Mexican food with Dae Lynn, Damon, and the kids. My granddaughter, Daya, came along as well. Then we went and bought dog food for Jazzi and Reuger then Dae and I went to Walmart. I picked up some food for our care group this evening. We just grilled hamburgers since we didn't have a very big group. It ended up we also had my son's church youth group at the same time for a hay ride and hot dog roast. It was pretty hectic for awhile!!! We had a good time but it was a small group.....so many were busy with other things......I'm so glad that I didn't kill myself trying to get everything perfectly clean!!
