I did get to eat with Pam. I stopped by Dollar Tree and picked up a few things. I needed a couple of Christmas gift bags to put the things I had gotten for the two folks I had gotten off the senior Christmas tree. I want to get them filled and dropped off at the Senior Center. I came home and got to open my windows and it is so nice.

Peggy Adrian and Heather are 16 but Adrian turns 17 on 12-13.;Josh is 20 and Mia is 8. It does not seem possible but it is.

Blondie what are you up to tomorrow?

Susi, how did the game turn out?

Jenn did you have a good day?

Adin went and got his permit on his birthday.

He gets to drive home from school some days but it's only 5 miles.

How old are your grandchildren Jan? I remember Mia being born.

Jan anything you should do can wait for another day. I hope you and Pam were able to go to your favorite place for lunch. I'm jealous of your 70's we only got up to 42 today.

Peggy I can't believe Adin is 16 already. Does he get a driving permit at that age or a junior license?

Susi I don't much care for shopping either. I try to buy on line, anything that can be delivered. :-)
Yes, I got my decorations up and boxes put away. The place is neat, but with me in it, I don't know how long it will stay neat. LOL

Blondie, I guess that's why the food at the movies is so expensive, they have to pay for all that luxury. :) Our paper said that stores weren't as crowded as usual because of online deals. Nope I still don't want to go. I don't like to go shopping like that normally either. LOL! I think most men would love that in a woman. :) Did you get your decorations up?

Jan, how are you feeling? I hope you got to go out to lunch with Pam. It's good you don't do much sometimes or a lot of times! You keep on the go too much as it is. You would tell me to take it easy. :) Greg is watching the Ohio state game. We are playing our big rivals Michigan. My cousin in law is from there and I had to stop posting our memes about Michigan, she would get irritated. LOL! I think they are funny but I don't want to upset her over a football game. :)

Peggy, Adin is one fine young man! :) Not many 16 year olds want to hang with kids, they want to be with their friends. He will make a fine hubby someday to a wonderful woman. :) I know you are very proud of him! :)

Jenn, what did you get into today? You usually have something fun planned for the weekends. :)

HUGS!

Blondie, Adin turned 16 in October and the little boys just love him. He's nice to them plus I think it's because he's so tall too. He picks them up and puts them on his shoulders.

He also takes them for rides on the quads.

Jan it's very rare that Mr. Sunshine is right about what the weather will do. The movie theaters that I go to with the kids have big chairs with cup holders and a long table in front of the seats. You can order a whole quick meal if you want. The movie theaters aren't like they used to be at all.

Jenn you certainly could use the extra sleep with all that you do. How did you like the Frozen 2 movie?

Susi I read that the stores didn't get the foot traffic they usually do because so many people are ordering on line. I still wouldn't go shopping on Black Friday. LOL

I started digging decorations out this morning and now have another mess to straighten. :-)

Peggy, it's more fun to be the adored big cousin than the baby of the family. :)

Gosh Blondie, I sure didn't realize Cole was that big. I was thinking of him as a little boy. LOL! I'm glad you're feeling better and don't have a lot of cleaning to do. :) Have fun decorating. I'm not sure when I will start digging things out for the trees. Maybe next week sometime. We had left overs last night too and enough for today then that's it. :) It's nice not to have to really cook after a holiday, just heat things up, and that's not cooking. :)

Jan, I think we all know by now that Mr. Sunshine lies too much. LOL! I hope you didn't get too wet coming out of the store. That must be some fancy movie theater! I've never heard of one with trays let alone reclining seats! I would probably fall asleep. LOL! You're right, it doesn't seem fair we end up with everyone else's leaves. Here it is going into December and he's still cleaning them up. We'll probably still have some in the Spring too. :( I think it's starting to wear him down now. :(

Jenn, I'm glad you didn't have to work yesterday. :) It sounds like you and Mini had a nice and fun day together. :) I love those kinds of days. I bet it was nice going to Target and not having to deal with crowds. I don't venture out on Black Friday for any reason. :) I'm a big chicken. LOL!

No work today. :)

I slept in until almost noon. Kiddo and i watched the first Frozen movie at home, then went to lunch, saw Frozen 2 at the theater, and then did a quick Target run. By the time we got to that, the crowds had all disappeared.

I ended up getting out and it was not bad except for the on and off rain. The weatherman said it was not supposed to start till 3 but nope it seemed to come when I was heading to the car with purchases. I finished all my shopping except for 2 movie gift cards for Josh and Adrian. Out theater had been bought out and closed and remodeled. It now has reclining seats with trays that can pulled over your lap. It is very nice now but they are still waiting on the gift cards to come in. This will give the boys a date night out at the movies.

Blondie I am glad you had a nice easy day.

Susi bless Greg heart I hate all the leaves blow into your yard. It just does not seem fair. Oh the dressing was so good today. I have more for tomorrow.

Peggy I bet Adin likes being the big cousin. He has such a kind heart.

Peggy Cole is 12 and Riley will be 9 in a couple of months. Cole is almost as tall as I am and I'm 5'7". How old is Adin now. It seems just a short while ago, he was a baby. After seeing his pictures, Adin's not a baby any more. LOL

Susi I'm happy to be home and feeling better. I had some leftovers for dinner and froze some for another day. I'm pretty much unpacked and almost have everything put away. Tomorrow I'll do some decorating and laundry. I cleaned before I left so I don't really have to clean anything this weekend.

No it doesn't bother Adin at all. His sister's girlfriend has two sons 4 and 8 plus his cousin is 4.

He's used to being the adored big cousin.

They are always around him at all of the functions at his house.

Jan, I do hope you were able to stay in today. Wow on them working so early. No one here will start before 7. Even after the good nights sleep I had I still napped for almost 2 hours. It was great! :) Oh yes, lots of left overs! I get 2 packs of the turkey and cook both of them so we will have some. :) Enough for today and tomorrow too. Hehe! With your statement, I have decided on a big NO on the tofu. LOL! I was on the fence about it but not now. :) Greg worked outside, the wind has brought a lot of leaves to rest here from down the street. It's so annoying. He was out there the whole time I was napping.

Blondie, I'm glad you'll be okay till Tuesday. You know to just take it a little easy till then. :) I remember how my legs hurt so bad when I worked at Anchor, concrete floor or wooden stand to stand on. We did finally get them to get us some rubber mats and that helped some. Maybe a good Christmas gift for both of them would be mats for in front of their sink and stove.:) Sunday night is when our wintry mix is supposed to come in. :(

Peggy, does it seem strange to Adin that he isn't the "baby" of the family anymore. :) I don't do any shopping on Black Friday either, I value my life too much.

Jenn, did they give you all the day off today too or did you have to go back into work? It sure would be nice if they would give you the day after so you can rest up. :)

HUGS!

Good morning it's 31 and this is the day of rest from our walk but I will ride the bike after breakfast since we skipped it yesterday.

Blondie I bet it was great to see the boys again. They must be getting big. How old are they now.

It was great holding a baby again. Adin was the baby of the group before Jack arrived.

Nothing on the agenda so far but I'm not going near any stores.

Have a great ay

Peggy bless Jack's parents for taking him on the subway and train for his first big trip. I can't imagine carrying all a baby needs on the train. It must have been great to hold a new baby. :-)

Jenn I'm glad your sister didn't try to convert everyone to be a vegan. I understand folks sometimes have no choice, but I don't want their restrictions placed on me. It was nice that she had a full bird for those who wanted it.

Susi I have an appointment with the chiropractor on Tuesday. I'm okay until then. I'm not hurting as bad today. Diane has ceramic tiles in her kitchen. So does Will. Standing on the ceramic tiles really makes my back ache.

Jan I hope you're able to have a relaxing day. With the parking issues you're having I hope you decide not to go out. We're expecting rain, sleet and snow tomorrow. Not weather I enjoy.

Morning ladies. I certainly didn't sleep as long as I would have liked to and see a nap ahead. LOL I may not get out as rain is moving in. It can wait until tomorrow. Not even 6:30 and they are out there working already.

Susi hope you get a nap today. Did you have left overs for today? I brought some home and the girls had plenty too.

Blondie I bet your back was hurting after all the cooking you did. We're you able to get in today to the chiropractor?

Peggy how wonderful to see little Jack. I know he was loved on by everyone.

Jenn so glad the food situation wasn't bad. I don't do tofu anything, I have tried and just can't. What are you up to today?

Blondie, I can understand you not wanting to put too much stuff up, but yes, everyone needs something. :) Can you get into the chiropractor soon? I think like last year we will only put up our 2 trees and the window wreaths. I'm just not up anymore for the decorating I use to do. :(

Peggy it sounds like a wonderful day! :) I bet it was really sweet meeting baby Jack. I bet he's a real cutie. :) I'm sure they were worn out taking the subway and train, I would be, especially with a baby.

Jan, I knew you would have a wonderful day with everyone. :) Boo on the drizzle though. I'm glad you and the boys could relax last night. :) We had our pie about 6 last night, then about 8 I fell asleep in the chair again. I woke about 10 and went to bed and didn't wake up all night till about 3. :) I'm still tired. LOL! I must have been quiet cause Greg was still in there. :) I hope it's not raining when you have to go out today. Be careful out there with all the nuts on black Friday.

Jenn, it was really nice of your vegan sister to make a real turkey too. :) Did you try any of the tofu one at all? I can't make up my mind if I'm interested in trying any tofu stuff or not. Till then..not. LOL! I'm glad things went well. :) Bummer your hubby had to work but I guess someone has to do it.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Dinner turned out better than I had expected under the circumstances. With sister's allergies and decision to go full vegan, I had fears of tofurkey and silken tofu "potatoes". There was tofurkey, but there was also a full bird. And all of the sides she made were free of animal product without being obvious.

Hubby just left for work (grocery store stock clerk) and I'm about to go lay down for the night.

Sounds like everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving lunch. I know I sure did and enjoyed the visit. I came home about 4 as it was drizzling and it gets dark so early now. The boys and I have been enjoying sitting in the chair and watching movies. I need to get out tomorrow and pick up a necklace and 2 Lowe gift cards. Then the boys and I have the day to ourselves for chilling.

Everything was done at the same time and we sat down to eat at about 2:00. We planned on leftovers and everyone took what they wanted, packaged it and relaxed a while. We've already had dessert and the kids are all playing a card game. I came into the living room to relax. I'm tired and my back is hurting but I'm done for the day. So far, the plan is that I go home tomorrow, I want to do some decorating because I have a pretty busy week next week.
I hope everyone had a great day!

Blondie, everything came out just right on time. :) No, the kids were going to Megan's folks and their family Thanksgiving. I think Courtney went to her dad's. Dawn is out of state, but she texted me. :) We ate at 1 right on the button. :) Everything was yummy. We didn't eat any pie yet, we'll have that this evening.

Jan, I hate you have to walk so far to the car. :( Yep, those workers would be getting a piece of my mind in my mind too. :( I know you had a really fun day today with the kids. :) I was a good girl today and didn't go back for seconds. I was full but not miserable like I usually am. I did however have a good nap after we ate, and just woke up at 4. :) It was nice. Not much to watch on tv today so we have Denise the Menace marathon on. I like that show. :)

Peggy, I know you had a wonderful time with the family today. :) What time did you all eat? Did you sneak in a walk afterwards?

Jenn, I do hope you had a wonderful day today. :) Did you get some rest in at some point?

Happy Thanksgiving! Time to get the cat off my lap and do the crackers. I’ll get my shower then the rolls will be ready to go in then the dressing. I did find another place to park but it is a block down. I may have to make a couple of trips. I certainly was not think nice thinks about them yesterday their mom and dad may not have been married as I had to cross a bundle of rebar to get to the other side to the Jeep. I made it but was not happy at all. Today will be fun and like I did last night there is a good chance I will be falling asleep in my chair again lol

Susi I have the same worry of having things done at the same time. Are the kids coming to visit today?

The turkey breasts are on the bbq and one is in the smoker. The sweet potatoes will go in the oven in a little while because I roast them a very long time. They seem to sweeten the longer they're in the oven. The ham doesn't have to go in until a bit later. We're hoping to eat around 2:00 but a little later won't bother anyone.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! Have a Blessed one! I thought I would say that today in case some of you didn't stop in tomorrow. :)

Peggy, I'm glad it was warmer for your walk today! :) 10 lbs. of smashed taters is a lot. :) I love them for left overs and to make tater cakes with. :)

Jan, I'm sure the neighbor's won't mind you walking through their yards. :) They certainly understand. :) I hope he was right about the water being off of only 10 minutes. At least they told you.:) It sounds like it's all coming together for you. :) I baked Greg's pumpkin pie this morning. :) I was feeling good enough to go through the post office and get the paper. It sure felt good to get out by myself and drive. :) Our wind is really blowing and so is Greg. LOL!

Blondie, I think I need a good bomp on the head. LOL! I wasn't even thinking of after it's cooked. ROFL! Sometimes I worry myself. :( I knew the boys would be in early this morning. :) They love you so much! You sure had a very busy prep day. :) It's all worth it though when it's on the table. :)

Jenn, do you have access to a thin piece of wood? Maybe you could staple one end of the material on that, wrap it around the arm then staple the other end to it? Just a thought. :) We have that wind too, and it is getting colder out. Bummer on your daughter getting the really bad stuff. This will be the first time in YEARS that we don't have to go anywhere at all or deal with any drama at all. It's going to be so GREAT! :)

We're all in a "no work" mindset today. Manager and I are brainstorming how to cover the foam arm pads that have been gouged and covered with black duct tape. I have enough vinyl left from the seat pads, but because they're foam, I can't staple the vinyl directly into them. I'm almost thinking something like a doctor's shoe covers that they wear for surgery, but in a heavier fabric, and maybe with drawstrings instead of elastic. That's definitely not something I could do from here, though, unless I drag my sewing machine in to work.

It's super windy here and temps are falling. Meanwhile, my elder daughter out in Utah is getting socked in with a winter storm that's making travel difficult if not impossible. We're joking about how that's a perfect excuse for skipping family drama, even as the drama from her husband's family is practically non-existent compared to mine.

Peggy the scallion pancakes sound yummy. Don't worry about the weight, you'll have that off in no time. :-)

Susi I freeze the stuffing after it's been cooked. We all like some after Thanksgiving and I only make it once a year.
Yes, I was tired yesterday and yes, the boys were in to see me early this morning. :-)

Jan I agree with Susi that the workers should put some sort of boards or paths for you all to walk on. The way they're leaving things is not only inconvenient, but dangerous too.

The turkeys are basting, the stuffing is put together for tomorrow, the sweet potatoes are washed, buttered and wrapped, ready to go into the oven, the ambrosia is made and now I have to put the green bean bake together and make the tiramisu.

Morning all! They are out there being noisy. Glenda next door thinks she has found us a safer place to park but we will have to walk through our neighbors yard. It is a bit father of a walk but safer for us. They have already come and said that they were turning the water off but only for 10 minutes. I joked with the young man as it isn't his fault he is just a worker. I'm about to get up and make the cornbread. I didn't chop last night I just vegged out with the boys. I need to get the crackers done and the chicken cooked for the dressing. Tomorrow I'll bake the dressing and do the Mac and cheese, lunch is at noon so I will need to leave here at 11:15.

Good morning we're just back from our walk 39 and much warmer than yesterday.

I think I'm stopping down to visit my friend Beverly this morning for coffee.

I'm going to make the turnips today and then just heat them up for tomorrow. Jared makes 10 pounds of mashed potatoes so there will be enough pots boiling away.

Have a great day.

Blondie, I bet you'll be in for it today with the boys. Hehe! They have time with you to make up. :) I've never tried to freeze stuffing. I didn't really think you could since there is egg in it. When I use to cook big I would stuff the turkey and make an extra pan of stuffing too. I could live on that and gravy. LOL! Since you cook all the big meals I'm glad Diane does the supper. :) I bet you were tired last night after all the places you went.

Oh Jan, I was hoping they wouldn't do that till after Thanksgiving at least. They should have put a board across the rebar for people to walk on so they didn't get hurt. Maybe if you see them you could tell them that? I would yell it at them. That's just dangerous for anyone! :( I'm glad the kids will get your groceries. :) They are so good to you! :) When I'm mad I can clean up a storm too. :) You could get some small sweet taters for just you.:) Or even a small can of them to make it easier. :) I only do them for holidays cause I use Karo and brown sugar to make them sweet, but I do skip the marshmallows. I do them in a skillet.

Jenn, I knew you would be able to cover that chair. :) You could have snarked back and said if someone knew how to buy them I wouldn't have to do this. LOL! Sounds funny anyway. :) It sure sounds like I need to try Chipolte's soon. :) Thank you! I love that they make the food there!

Peggy, you'll get that back off in no time. :) That was a lot of weight for Patty to lose in one week. I've never heard of those kind of pancakes.

HUGS!

Well, at WW today I gained .8. My sister Patty lost 7.8 in one week.

We had a great lunch at her house. Soup, salad and Trader Joe's scallion pancakes which I could have really done without but they were good and different.

Jan even though my family likes sweet potatoes, every once in a while I like to have one for dinner. I buy 1 or 2 of them and either put them in the microwave or toaster oven to bake them.
I'm glad Erin will make sure you have groceries, but I wouldn't be happy walking through a maze of a mess for the next 3 weeks.

Jenn I would worry the owner will want you to reupholster all the chairs. I'm sure you chair looks great now that it's got a fresh, new cover.

No rest for the wicked >:-)

I reupholstered my office chair today. Well, most of it. I still need to figure out something for the arm rests. I even found vinyl just a touch darker than the original, so if it wasn't for the larger pleats where the fabric bends around the forms, you almost can't tell anything was done. Owner happened to walk back into our space with a client while I was working on it, and he made a vaguely snarky comment, but I could hear the humor in his voice as he said it so I know he wasn't actually getting on my case.

I need to get the oil change done tonight since there's no Scouts.

Chipotle is generally decent. Not really Mexican, but definitely a step or three above places like Taco Bell. I always get the same thing - bowl with brown rice, steak, pico, cheese and sour cream, which is 700 calories. They make their chips with a dusting of salt and a squeeze of lime, so good, but so many calories. The guacamole is the least consistent in terms of taste and texture - a lot depends on how well they mash the avocados. And yes, they really do make everything in house, unlike a lot of companies that ship pre-seasoned and frozen food to the local restaurants to be finished off.

Jan, I would be livid. You're supposed to park in a field for three weeks? And how do you get in and out of your building with wet cement??

I no sooner posted then a man rang my doorbell and said they are doing away with my so call driveway and we would need to move our cars but we could park in the field across the street. I knocked on the door and told Glenda next door and we are not happy campers. I moved my car and struggled to step down from the poured side through the rebar. There is no way I can do that carrying groceries and I’m not sure I can step up on poured side. I had to sit and cry awhile I was so frustrated. I messaged the girls. Erin was ticked but said don’t worry they would see that I got the groceries in the house. This will be like this for at least 3 weeks. I just put on some good old rock and roll and started cleaning and decorating. Bedroom done and little tree up and decorated. Bathroom cleaned put up snowman shower curtain. Up went the little tree and decorated, clean and purged and now taking a break having a diet soda then onto the kitchen.

Susi you are cooking and I do not call anything you are doing cheating. I sure wish my kids like sweet potatoes but they do not so I have to wait until someone brings them to church lunches.

Blondie you were a busy lady. I may or may not get my stuff chopped. I want to get the crackers done tonight at least. Love the windows open but 73 tomorrow and that oven will be baking it’ heart out.

Jenn I'm glad you had an easy day for a change. You're always so busy getting into all sorts of things.

Susi I was up before the boys since they had school today. Tomorrow will probably be another story since they don't have school. :-)

Peggy how was lunch with Patty? I hope it was a good one. :-)

Jan I already cut up the celery and onions for the stuffing I'll start putting together tomorrow.

Because we all want leftover stuffing, I made a batch to divide and freeze. After I finished with the stuffing we went to the science fair at Riley's school, the Skyline Drive, Aldi, Walmart, the Dollar Tree, picked Cole up from school and I cut up the onions and celery for tomorrow when I make another batch of stuffing. Martin wants lentils and ham so with the leftover ham that we'll freeze, I'll make a batch for him when I come back for Christmas. Now I'm finished for the day and Diane is making dinner.

Wow Peggy! Walking when it's 32 out?? Yikes! Okay I guess you have to get use to it sooner or later. :) How was WW?

Jan I'm envious of your windows being open. :) We did finally make it to 57 today and of course Greg was out blowing when he wasn't working on his Taxi. :) One of these days I'm going to have to make cornbread stuffing! It does sound so good! Everything I'm making, like last year, I'm cheating since it's just Greg and I, but we like the cheat things so that works. It's Walmart brand of Jenn0 white turkey breast and gravy, instant taters, canned yams sweetened up, frozen veggies, rolls, frozen choc silk pie. Of course pumpkin pie for Greg, canned *add only condensed milk* pumpkin mix and frozen pie crust. Hehe! I'm lazy. LOL!
I did call Dr. Bruce this morning and explained things and he sent me in a script for Prednisone to help me till I get the new oxygenator. It's not due according to email till the 3rd. :(

I think Greg thinks that too Jan, about going to the other bed, cause he doesn't seem to mind. It kind of bothers me though, I'm use to it, he isn't. He could wake me but he won't so it is his own fault. :)

Blondie, what all did you do today? I can't imagine you going there and not doing much of anything they always have something to get into. :) My prep work, as little as it is, will start tomorrow.

Hi Jenn! If you don't come back the next few days I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies, it is a wonderful 70 and those Windows are open. Giving the kitchen a good cleaning as I don't cook in a dirty kitchen. I may go ahead and chop my celery and onions to have ready. I will bake my cornbread tomorrow and assembly the dressing. I am going to get a rotisserie chicken to go in the dressing. I like the flavor better than plain cooked chicken.

Peggy where did you go for lunch? How did W W go?

Jenn glad it was finally an easy night for you.

Blondie what all are you up to today?

Susi I think it is fair play if you woke Greg and he went to the other bed. That has happened to you more times than you running him out of the bed lol. What is on your agenda for today?

Peggy, it will be a nice surprise for you then for Thanksgiving dinner. :) You got the easy dishes to take. :)

Jan, I'm glad they didn't start your side of the street. Maybe they will hold off now at least till after Thanksgiving. :) I will pray this appointment helps you a lot. You've been having problems way too long now. My back bothered me for a few days after I pulled that stuff out of the closet, but it's much better now. I must have been noisy in my sleep last night, when I woke up Greg was sleeping in his room. :(

Blondie, I can't remember you mentioning what your menu will be, or did I forget? I do that a lot anymore. LOL! Did the boys come in and wake you up this morning? Shopping or some early prep work for you today?

Jenn, I'm glad you had a quiet day yesterday and got to relax in the evening. I've never eaten from Chipolte but we do have 2 of them here. Is the food pretty good?

HUGS!

They did not start on my side of the street and for their safety it is a good thing. LOL The lunch and learn was wonderful, good food and good information. I now have an assessment appointment for 12-3. My back is giving me fits and of course those knees. I am going to have to be like Blondie and have them put me back together with rubber bands and WD40. They have the whole range of services from therapy to chiropractic service.

Hehe!

Jan, I'm sorry you're having trouble sleeping again. :( I've never stopped :( You had a busy day planned today. I sure hope they didn't start the street so you could get out. They must be really bad at letting the people know when they will be closing things off. :( I hope you didn't have to crown one of them, cause that's what I would do and he/she wouldn't like the fit.Hehe!

Peggy, find anything new today. What is your Thanksgiving menu?

Hi Jenn! I hope things are okay,

Blondie passed up yarn emoticon will wonder never cease LOL. I am glad that Maria is using the carts or a wheelchair. I can't help wonder what your neighbors think when you take cooking utensils out then bring them back again. It must make them scratch their heads. LOL

Susi no it was 1 before I got to bed. I am having trouble sleeping again. That happens from time to time. I forgot I have a lunch and learn today and need to pick up a friend on the way. I won't clean today but after the I drop my friend at home I am off to do some of my Thanksgiving shopping as I have rain for the next 3 days. I may have to throw a guest fit as I see and hear concrete trucks out there and if the have begun pouring concrete on my side without the courtesy of letting me know so I could move my car it may get ugly.

Peggy how was the archives? What else did do?

Jenn how did your Monday go?

Susi in the stores either Maria gets one of those motorized carts or Will pushes her around in a wheel chair so at least she's sitting in the stores.

I'll do some odds and ends before the crochet group this morning. I'll finish my chores and pack when I get back. Martin isn't picking me up until about 4:30 so I have time to get things done.

Jan, I'm glad you don't put up with the kids acting that way. Makes you wonder how the parents would react to that. I would tell them too I think. I could be because of the holidays but with Christmas you would think they would behave better. I hope you could get to bed early last night. I know how those cleaning days work on us. :( I have mine to do today too plus going to the grocery. We need to get stuff for Thanksgiving. Last night my oxygenator gave up on me. I'm not sure if it can be serviced or if I'll have to get another one. :( I had to use the Inogen for bed time. :( I'm glad I at least have that to fall back on.

Blondie, I guess Maria isn't going to stay off her feet a lot. I'm still praying all goes well. It does sound like you had a good day though. I don't like the micro cloths for dishes either, just doesn't seem to do good enough for me. Like Jan, though, they are great for dusting. :) I suppose I wouldn't want Greg telling me how to do my crafts either so I understand him wanting it his way. :) I'm sure you'll get the vacuuming and laundry done this morning. :) Wow! Congratulations on passing up the yarn! I don't even think I could have walked by that! LOL!

Peggy I'm glad you got there safe and sound. Boo on the rain though. :( It's nice you had the extra help to unpack the car. :) I'm sorry to hear another passed away. I will pray for the family. Thank you for the missions.

Jenn, how did the rest of your weekend go? I hope more progress at work today. :)

Jan I don't mind the microfiber for dusting but they don't seem to do too well for drying my hands or the dishes.

You would all be proud of me. The store where I bought the towels had Red Heart Jumbo Super Saver yarn for $2.99 and I didn't buy any. :-)

Zone 5: Mission #2 Tuesday

Dear Friends,Today I want you to spend 15 minutes getting rid of anything that does not belong in your living room. Things that have gotten thrown in a corner, on a chair, or even the floor. The things that you almost don't even see because they have just become part of the room, get it out! If it does not belong there then out it goes!This does not mean that you have to spend three hours in your living room, do what you can do for 15 minutes.

Zone 5: Mission #3 Wednesday

Dear Friends,For today you are to take 5 minutes and dust the decorative items in your living room. The picture frames, lamps and knick knacks, this is a detailed dusting. Turn on the music and move quickly, you will be amazed at how fast you can to this!

Zone 5: Mission #4 Thursday

Dear Friends:If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, you are excused from the mission. For the rest of you here it is!It is time for a 27 Fling!! Take 5 minutes to fling your way through the Living Room! Nothing too hard here folks, just that old 27 Fling Boogie! Grab that trash bag and release yourself from things that are causing clutter! Toss those magazines and newspapers! Toss that Junk Mail! Have fun and remember that we are FLYing!

Zone 5: Mission #5 Friday

Dear Friends:Today is our last day in the Living Room! Let's have a detailed vacuuming session. This means to vacuum the room, making sure to get up against the baseboards and to get under the furniture. Please be careful that you don't hurt yourself trying to move furniture. If it is too difficult to get under the couch or chairs then just try to get as close to the base of the furniture as you can.Have fun and don't get sidetracked!

Peggy I am so glad you are there safe and sound. It seems we are losing so many folks here lately.

Blondie, I like the microfiber towels for dusting but not forever day use. What a lovely visit from the kids. Housework can wait it will get done eventually. I stopped in at our Dollar Tree and the Christmas section looked like the day after Christmas. It had been stripped and boxes of freight were every where. It was a disaster zone and it isn't even Thanksgiving yet.

We got here at about 2:45. Jodi, Dave and Adin were already here so we had lots of people unloading the car.

It was fine driving until we got to New Jersey and then it rained all the way to Garnerville.

I'm off to the Archives tomorrow. One of the guys who always came died last week. He is the second one this year.

Susi the hearse came out really nice but, as you said, it's Greg's toy and he wants it his way. I think the whole thing came out great even with the curtains the way Greg wanted them.
I don't think there are mice, I think there are gremlins in the closet. I don't think mice can reproduce the way the things do in my closed. LOL

Jan I don't know about there, but here, the stores are decorated and they're playing Christmas music. That might be winding the kids up. I don't know why, but they seem to get worse behaved as we get closer to Christmas.

I didn't get to vacuum or fold laundry because Will and Maria come over and we spent a nice day together. We did some shopping and I got new towels for the kitchen. The ones I have are so old they're falling apart. I don't care for the micro clothes so I found nice terry ones that I prefer. Now, I tuckered out and plan on relaxing for the rest of the night. :-)

Susi tell Greg I think his creation is simply wonderful! I like the curtains they work wonderful. It was church, count the offering and out to eat. The kids were horrible in Sunday School this morning, I was very ashamed of them. They were disrespectful and I called them on it. I don't put up with it. I am not sure what is up with them maybe the change with the holidays. I thought about getting a nap but didn't do maybe I won't be up late. I have a lot to do tomorrow with putting up and some cleaning.

Blondie what is the menu this year? How were your beets! I don't care for beets unless they are roasted. I have to tackle the craft room some as I am putting stuff up. I may just close the door and not look at it. LOL

Peggy how was the last leg of the trip? I know you were glad to be out of the car.

Greg teases me a lot cause I have probably 3 1/2 sets of cookware but I only use certain ones. Hehe! I guess a person can expect a guy to understand that. :) I know you're looking forward to seeing the boys, but I think when it's all over you'll be looking forward to getting back home. :) I know I would. :)

Greg really enjoyed making the hearse. :) I thought it came out really nice, but I wish he would have let me mess with the curtains longer and make them fancy. He's starting on a taxi now. :)

Jan, I hope you had a good day today. Church, out to eat? :) What else did you get into today? When are they going to start the other side of the street? I tried making a 3D snowman with the toy but it didn't come out very good. Maybe I'll try a flat one and make an ornament out of it. :)

Peggy I hope you had a good trip today.

Hi Jenn! How did your day go?

HUGS!

Jan they were some great prizes that were given away. I'm glad you had fun while making some extra money.

Susi I thought you were nice even without the pills but sometimes I hate to hear the truth about cleaning that closet. LOL I don't know what happens in there. I think everything gets up and dances around while I'm out or asleep. :-)

I started to get some things together that I'll need when I go to Diane's tomorrow. I bring my big pot and some utensils I prefer to use. Later I'll put the laundry in, clean and get my suitcase down.

Jan, I took my nice pills last night but didn't rest well. Greg was sawing logs in my ears. :( So I've been up a while and I'll go back in shortly. :) He woke a little while ago and is watching a little tv till he gets tired again. The hearse is finished. He decided to have me just cut out scalloped curtains and be done with it, it's his project, so I didn't get to do it fancy. :( I always liked watching plinko on the game show. :) That would be fun. Wow on the prizes too! :)

Peggy have a safe drive today. I'm amazed that a child Liam's age know all the words to that song. :) I'm very impressed! :)

Jenn, that had to be so frustrating! Ours has one of those take a ticket machines and it doesn't matter who or how old you are, you get called in order. That's probably why ours goes so fast. You had quite the day yesterday, I hope you can get some rest in this weekend.

Blondie, okay I will give up. :) I did take my nice pill last night like Jan told me to. :) I can sure understand you though, I know I will be traumatized too when I do mine. That is a very pretty name. :) I've always liked the name Elizabeth. Greg and I do have some fun working together. :) You're liable to have that afghan finished before you go to Martin and Diane's. :)

HUGS!

I am home and tired but I had such a good time. I did the Plinko game. They were playing for tickets the silent auction. They certainly had some great prized. Huge flat screen TV, google echo, mini fridge and on and on. My poor Amanda did not win but sure had fun. OK off to bed, hugs all.

Peggy Liam must be getting so big and generous. Did you bring his car with you? :-) I hope the rest of your trip is travelling with good weather.

Susi you can forget about me cleaning out your closet. I'm traumatized after doing mine. LOL I probably won't be able to find anything now that things are straightened. :-)
They haven't decided completely, but they're thinking of calling the baby Michaela.
It sounds like you and Greg are having a good time working together on his projects.

Jan what game were you working on and did you learn the rules you needed to know?

Jenn I don't think there is any rhyme or reason at the DMV. What's worse is that I think most of them, in every state, are the same. They were awful in NY and not any better in Virginia.
I hope you'll have an easy day tomorrow to make up for the aggravation you had today.

I finally finished the closet and worked on my afghan for a while. In a little bit, I'll work on the afghan some more and then read for a while.
