Hello.

Well, bummer.  I woke up at 2:30 last night and couldn't get back to sleep.  Of all the days, with a 5 hour shopping/card class looming ahead of me.  I've already paid for it, and of course part of me wants to go, but the other part is fearful of crashing like I did after Dena's party.  Mike said he would come and get me if I felt bad, but it's a half hour drive after I would call him, and an hour round trip for him.  I don't know that I could do that to him, and I know I couldn't ask the three women I'm going with to leave to take me home.  I'm going to have to think about what to do.

Later.

Hello.

It's all Mike's fault.  He was worried about me yesterday and asked me not to go to the Card Class.  I have to admit, he didn't twist my arm too hard.  ;-)

Good Morning. 

Am I ever glad I didn't go to the Card Class in Louisville on Saturday!   Sue came over yesterday afternoon to show me the cards they had made ~~ cute, but nothing I would have wanted to leave home for ~ and tell me about the class.   The more I heard, the happier I was that Mike had asked me not to go, and I "gave in" to him.   She said it was different than other classes she had gone to, but there was a lot of jumping up and standing in line waiting for a die and a change to use one of their Big Shots, then back down to stamp or glue something, then back up to wait your turn for the next die.  OMG, that would have done me in on Saturday!  

I had paid for the class ($25), but if I bought something i would have gotten $10 back.  She offered to buy something for me to get my discount but I couldn't think of anything without actually seeing things.  I asked if they had packets like Kathy makes with various cut outs and papers for us to use, if she would see if she could get them for me, but the instructor said it wouldn't be of any value without the dies and things they were sharing there.   Made sense ~ BUT, the instructor (owner) gave her a $25 gift card for me, so I basically got my whole deposit back, if & when I get back there to buy something!   Much, much better than I had hoped.

Sue brought back some of the dies and stamps I had loaned her, and borrowed my Santa die and we had a nice long visit.

I basically didn't accomplish anything else.   I had actually slept until 7:30 in the morning, then got up and had breakfast and watched TV with Mike until just before Sue came.  Rather pleasant, but I hope I can motivate myself to work on my cards today.   Tick Tock!

I did not hear from Kermit again and I forgot to call him. He has had my computer 4 days now. I have to
remember to call him tomorrow. At first I thought no news is good news, but now I am getting worried.
I had written last night that I was glad you decided not to go to the class, it would have been impossible to deal with all the waiting and standing and up and down and to me confusion. How do you get anything done when you have to do all that?  She should have had all the die cuts done is advance and just shown how to do it once for all to see.  If you are the last in line all the time everyone else is way ahead of you and probably starting the next card. So I really am quite happy you did not go and that you got a gift card in leu of your deposit.
I got the most beautiful card in the mail today and you will never guess what it was...the gorgeous card that you made for Thanksgiving.  I love it more than I can say and have been showing it to everyone and they allo love it too!  Absolutely stunning.  The leaves with the sequin windows are so awesome.  I chuckled because I just knew you had used that bible verse too!  And your gift of tags that I can color in, I love them and have never seen anything like them.  Too cook and I thank you so much for the card and the gift tags.  Love them both so much.

Tonight was the was the final competition for DWTS.
They are all so good, but I am hoping that Laurie and Val, she is one of the Olympic Gymnasts that took gold or silver, I cannot recall. She is just adorable and her enthusiasm is inspiring and her smile is contagious.  I really hope they win and if not them then the race car drive. But the 3 finalist are terrific and they will announce the winner tomorrow night.

Lily is cuteness personified and her smile just makes you smile back at her.  She is super adorable with her bald little head and how cute is Vince!  Together they tip over the cuteness scale, lol. He looks pleased to be a big brother.

Chris is finally going to clean tomorrow.  I made a bet with my mom last night that it would not happen today...I should have made it for money. So today I made the monthly tag for Nove for CDO and I cleaned my space up and paid some bills. Tomorrow will be a do nothing while Chris is here other than play on my Ipad or read.  Probably read.  I forgot I had Connie Shelton's new Samantha Sweet book which had a Halloween theme, so I am late reading it. I like this series better than the Charlie Parker ones, but I still like them too.
 
We are going to Joanne's for Thanksgiving. Suz family will not be there as they are going to Jerry's side. They have not all been together since his mom passed.  Josh with Cayla and the girls will not be there either as her family is reuiting for the first time since her grandma died.  Of course my brother Leigh and family will not be here from Arkansas. But the rest of us will be there.

I miss the boys being young and we girls coordinating the black Friday gift buying. I made a list of everyone in google documents 2 weeks ago and no one but me has filled in my wish list. I give up. Really. I have to order gifts on line and I will run out of time. How long does it take?  Just a few min for a wish list. I am going to kick them all in the ass one more time and then the heck with them. 
TTFN my friend.
Hugs,

Yesterday (Monday) became "one of those days".  Card making didn't go well, and several other things were "off".  I had tried to make my dental appointment and couldn't get in until the middle of January!   Then I got a call from them saying they'd had a cancellation, and could I come in this morning (Tues).  I said yes ~~ and then I realized that it is supposed to SNOW!  I almost called back and cancelled, but it well might snow in January, so I might as well go.  Currently the forecast is just for rain, but who knows.  The bad thing is that the car is still clean and shining, and it won't be after we take that little junket.

Then, because it really was "one of those days", we got a message from the Christmas lighting people saying that they would be out to install the lights this morning, too.  On the one hand, that's great, but on the other . . . . we sent a note saying we would be gone until 10 or so, and they said that was ok.   I hope it is and nothing gets delayed.    

It really will be nice to have these two things done ~~ if we can get them done without incident.

I'm so glad your little Thanksgiving gift got there, and that you liked it. I thought it might not get there until today.   I saw the little gift tags and of course thought of you right away.   I just hope they aren't so small that they are hard for you to color.   

I'm always critical of the cards I make and I know you not only have been a card maker, but you have an artists eye.  On the one hand, that's good ~ on the other, how glaring will any flaws be?  lol   You know me ~ I can't help worrying.  Ha.   I'm really so pleased that you like it.

It was supposed to be a shaker card, but when I made some similar ones for birthdays last month, the sequins all "shook" to the bottom and you couldn't see them unless you were actually shaking them ~~~ soooo, I put a little glue down and shook them over that.  LOL  Hafta say, I like it better.

I'm so sorry Kermit hasn't gotten back to you.  Do call him today, so you can have your laptop back before Thanksgiving . . . maybe.  I really hope he can fix it and fix it well!  

Your Thanksgiving sounds nice even if the whole family won't be together.  

Thank you ~ I admit I think Vince and Lily are adorable ~ and Jack and Lucy are too.  At least in pictures.  Ha.  

Thank you for my beautiful tag!   I love it.  

I'm posting tonight since I have to get up and get going early tomorrow.  I think this is all the news that is fit to print now anyway.

Have a happy day!

Not going to do the border thing tonight.  I really do not 

have all that much to say.  I am all for getting both those 

things out of the way. Especially the dentist.  It will be 

great to have the decorating done too and you will not 

have to wonder when that will get done. I had never 

realized that you did not own the decorations on your 

house and outdoor tree. You could have let that neighbor 

who wanted to decorate the tree a couple of years ago do it. 

It would have saved you money.

Well. Chris did get the cleaning done today, but it took 

her all day. She started in the morning and never finished 

till suppertime. She left with her sister around 11 am and 

we never heard from her again until 3 but then she 

finished. She put everything away too. But she did not dust. 

Mom did not ask her too. I will get it done. Some how, lol.

Just remember, little flaws in a card show you that it is

homemade. Not one of the machine made cards that are

all exactly the same. I got a card that at first glance looked

like a homemade one, then you see that is is all one 

surface made to look like several and had some 

embossing.  2nd look made me think it was crappy 

because the effects were not real.  So some part of yours

being imperfect tells the receiver that it was made with

love.

It's Thanksgiving Eve Day!   You know "Those People" who put their Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving?   We are Them!  Or is it They?  Whatever ~ I blush with shame.   Our outside decorations are up (Yay!) but the timer isn't reachable for us, so we had our lights on last night, and will again tonight instead of waiting for tomorrow night like we always do.  Blush! smiley77

It's Thanksgiving type weather (currently 26, heading for the low 50s), but no snow predicted.  We have everything ready to make our Left Over meal on Friday.

Tomorrow is Trash day, but we won't have a pick up until Friday. 


I'm still pharting around with the cards ~~ what was I THINKING?!   Oh, yeah.  I thought I picked an easy design ~ yeah, right.  What was i THINKING?!   Because of the cards, I'm not even thinking about putting up the tree or some inside decorations, though of course we will.  I would love to get everything done before Shauna's next visit on Friday the 2nd so she could clean my Portable Craft Room and we'd be ready to put the tree up in there maybe over the weekend.    

I also scheduled a pick up from the Veterans for that Thursday, thinking I would get rid of the old lighted Christmas tree.  We've been holding on to it "just in case", but we can use the space  in the garage, and I thought someone else could enjoy the tree.  Then when I talked to Sue the other day, she said she wasn't feeling up to putting her old Big tree up and wished she had a 4 foot tree ~~~ Well, Hello.   She and John will pick it up after Thanksgiving, but now I have to scramble to get other things ready to give the Vets.  We have lots of "stuff" of course, but it isn't ready ~~ and I'm still playing with cards.  Aarrgghh.  (LOL)

Good point about the cards, but of course I want mine to look like Hallmark made them.  So why am I not just picking up a box of Hallmark cards??  LOL    Mike keeps telling me I can just make 4 or 5 and buy the rest, and that idea does allow me to breathe.  Ha.  I truly am my own worst enemy.  

I'm glad Chris did get your house cleaned, but having it take all day would have driven me over the bend.  Have you guessed?  Patience is not one of my virtues ~ if indeed I have any.  lol

Your mom really should have her dust and do all the things that make up cleaning.   She is too kind, and Chris is taking advantage but I guess I can't blame her if she thinks that's what you want.  

Anyway, you are all clean for Thanksgiving and that's a good feeling!   Better feeling is that you and your mom don't have to host the event.   There was a time when I enjoyed that, but it really is a lot of work even with your guests bringing things.   Better to go to Joanne's and enjoy yourself.  ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving, dear friend.
I'm thankful for You!

So much to be thankful for today, and at the top of my list are Mike and you my dear sister.  I whine and complain, but I really do know how very blessed I am, and I am grateful.

I made real headway on the cards yesterday, and I'm thankful for that, too.  LOL

We are having a nice, leisurely Thanksgiving Day, going for dinner at 2:30, and planning a pretty leisurely Left Over making day tomorrow as well.   Life is good.

Now you will have to laugh ~~~ but at Mike, not me!   He ordered a "young turkey breast" for our left over dinner, and when he showed it to me, I asked if it wasn't a whole turkey.  It is definitely not what I thought of as a turkey breast.   I't's 12 lbs!  I really have got to stop letting Mike have free reign with ordering food!  LOL.  He's in charge of the bird.  He has some dry brine that he will cover it with along with oil and leave it for 24 hours before we wash the brine off and cook it.  I'm in charge of the dressing and we'll make whipped potatoes, and creamed peas and onions and have cranberry sauce and of course, Pumpkin Pie.  Not everything you usually have for a Thanksgiving Dinner, but it is just our Leftover meal after all. 

Have a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Morning

We had a very nice Thanksgiving Day, kicking it off with a traditional watching of the original "Miracle on 34th Street" (colorized version).  Natalie Wood was exactly one day younger than me, so I would have been the same as young Susan ~ though not quite as cute.  

Dinner was lovely and we brought home leftovers ~ or rather I did ~ but we are still going to make our "leftover meal" today.   I suspect we will be Turkey'd out soon.  

When we returned home, we watched a couple of the little Hallmark Christmas movies and at bedtime, Mike couldn't wait any longer and broke out a copy of "A Christmas Carol".   Christmas Season has begun!

While yesterday was a really nice day, last night was not.  I woke around 2 or 2:30 and didn't get back to sleep until 6, and then woke when Mike got up at 6:30!  Rotten night!   He took the trash to the curb this morning, and said he barely made it in time.

OMG, I had no idea I was away so long.
There is not possible excuse for not being here for you other than I am mentally ill. I have been in a fog trying to check out everyones Black Friday online sales, which start before Friday. Mom gets it into her head to finish her Christmas shopping and I have to hunt down the best buys for her. We actually found great ones for some of the items. The dishes my sist Jo wanted on sale from $59 a place setting to $19 a place setting. But they could not decide the pattern and color they wanted. Bak and forth for days...brown or blue? I went to be going on 4am and get a text from her at 7am. Brown, then 45 min later...noooooo the Crimson. I had to laugh as that was my 1st choice. 4 sets of them. They would only have gotten 2 at regular price. Free shipping too, what a deal. Also found pots and pans for my sister Diane for 60% off.  The only ones we are waiting on for ideas is Suz and Jerry and I have Suz in the name draw. So I have to put the pressure on. Found an online special from Woman Within for spren $100 get $50 off For my gifts. Able to get a cardigan and 3 shirts I can wear under it. Whoopee! So have put a lot of hours in but got great deals, but I have been blurry eyed and tried for days now. The most trouble I am having is with Josh's girls. I waited for a special for the game Pie Face on Amazon at 2 in the morning and got it in my cart, but I did not know you had to check out within 15 min and did not so lost the sale price, so I deleted it. Made me so mad. I came here instead of searching today. I have pajama's in my cart at 2 stores but neither of them is what i really want. I cannot believe how much they want if you want actual flannel pajamas for kids. Most stuff is polyester, fleece- the thin kind or cottom. Not warm flannel which costs like $35 a pair. Not paying that got little girls pj's. I have sale ones that are like $15 and not even flannel. Hoping for a better deal...I still have time to look. I wanted Disney Princesses but Disney cost more. Maxie is a size 6-6x and Morgan is a size 7-8. I got them each a Disney doll and did not realize I got the new Hasbro ones and not Mattel. They look more like the cartoon characters but therefore look like they are for younger girls. And the clothes come off but there are no clothes made to fit these dolls, so what fun is that. I bought them on a quick sale on Amazon for only $5 so am glad as they may be going to Toys for Tots of Salvation Army. We will see.

Sounds as if you had an ideal Thanksgiving. Ours was good. Food was great! Sadly after dinner I was stuck with the men in the livingroom watching The Lions beat the Vikings. I was with BIL Dave and nephews Brent and Jason. Dumb sports nuts that all voted wrong. Well, Jason is too young to vote. Really missed Josh being there, He is always so much fun. Jas fell asleep on the floor. But other than football, it was great.

I love that your outdoor decorations are on a solar timer and you do not have to think about turning them on and off. Ours are on a remote, once we get them up, lol. But mom is always reminding me to turn them on and off. I will always turn then off as I can see they are on, lol.

Oh my, a 12lb turkey breast..Mike is the MAN! I wondered weather turkeys came small but they all told me that 10-12 lbs is the smallest we would find. I miss my moms dressing and getting some of the crispy skin...that is part of the joy of turkey. We were given left overs, though they threw the mashed potatoes and gravy, dressing and turkey all into the container so it will be hard to heat the potatoes with gravy on them. But it will be good, we are having them tonight. Though there is enough for more meals.

I am sorry you are not sleeping again. I hope that once you get your cards done, you will sleep. I know what a worry wart you are. The lights are up outside so that is one worry off the list. So you need to check off the cards and decorating the tree and then you will sleep.

I got the wig for mom being a little girl. OMG, what a wig. It will be quite funny. Now I need to relocatte the Santa hat it my room and the beard and all is in moms room. We will have to get Suzy to come and take the picture. But I would like the tree up for background. So it will be a bit yet.

Jordan heard he had a warrant out for his arrest for not paying one of his fines. So of course Suz calls and asks mom to lend his $800 dollars and he will pay her back $100 a week till it is paid off. I said he should have asked her. Also he is a temp and his job ends the first of the year. Then what. Mom is stupid. But then Suz had borrowed $300. Diane borrowed $2000 and I had to borrow $200. I am so angry as the hospital sent one of my bills to a collection agency. It is partly my fault as I get estatements. I just open them, make a payment and that is it. But they have a new billing system that is a lot different than it used to be and I did not realize that. You have to make payments on each of the bills in the cart. I always just payed $50 a month on the bill, but that did not indicate where it went and I was doing it on the most recent post to the account and all the payments were going to the newest bill and the oldest one went several months with not payment. Though my Oct payment went on it, it was sent the very next day to collection agency. When I got the bill from them, I went on line and opened that statement and read it in full and 3/4 of the way down it said if the bill was not paid in full in 10 days it would go to collection. There goes my credit score. I was right on the verge of getting it from fair to good. I was so angry at first and then I realized it was my own fault. I had the money in my checking, but that was for the rest of my Christmas shopping. So mom is replacing it and I will pay her back after Christmas. She knows I am good for it. Diane will be paying hers back this week. Hers was because there was a mess up in her sick pay from work and she had to fill out another form and get another authorization before they could send her the money. That just shows us that we all are only a paycheck or 10 from homelessness. Good thing my mom has some to spare. Though that could all be gone in a catastrophy too.

Ok, think I have talked your ear off...probably both ears. So I will end and see if I can find a tag to match. I do not have that many on this computer. (I did call Kermit and am waiting for him to call me back. My guess is that he has not evern worked on it and he is scrambling to see what can be done) Chat with you tomorrow.

Love you to my friend and I am more than Thankful for having you in my life.

Hugs,

Good Morning 

The gals in the other group are ready to move on to Christmas, so I joined them.   Today we should see 60 degrees, but then it will drop into the 30s and 40s, so I guess it's time.

  There is a feeling of Hope in the air, to me anyway.  Castro is dead, and they are dancing in the streets in Little Havana.  I am excited about many of Trump's Cabinet picks.  I've been seeing KT McFarland for years and think she's awesome, and those I don't know anything about sound like they will be good and bring the kind of "hope and change" those of us on 'my side of the aisle' feel we need.   We'll see.   How I would love it if you and others could feel good about things too.  Our country has been so hideously divided.

Ok, profound thoughts over. ;-)  Our Thanksgiving dinner yesterday was very good.  The bird was only 10 lbs, not 12 and it was tender, juicy and delicious.  I had trouble making stuffing, of all things(!) because the back pain monster chose that time to attack.  It's so beyond annoying to have trouble doing the simplest things because of the dumb back pain!   Even so it, and everything else turned out good, and we watched the delightful Albert Finney Musical "Scrooge" in the evening.  That always just flat out makes you feel good, and the Christmas Season has begun.

Yeah, it was getting kind of lonely in here, talking to myself.  lol

I really do understand that fog you talk about.    I'm sure I rewrite the same information often because I don't remember who I have said what to.  I probably never say it at all to one person, and repeat it six times to another.  (laugh)

Your bargains sound Wonderful!  Way to go!!  That's important work, so you are forgiven for devoting yourself to it.       You know so much about the kids games and favorite characters, and I know nothing at all anymore.  I couldn't even recognize Captain America, for Pete's sake!  Ha.  I fear I don't do nearly as well for my current kids as I used to for their parents ~ (gulp) or grandparents!   I'm beginning to feel like a one woman Generation Gap.  

I don't envy you being stuck in the living room with the men-folk and the football game.   Mike enjoys it but he isn't passionate about watching football (thank goodness), but yesterday was the game between Iowa and Nebraska.   When we lived in Omaha, he used to have a tee shirt that said "My favorite team is Iowa, or any team that beats Nebraska".   It's a wonder he lived long enough to move on from Omaha.  LOL   That was in the days when Nebraska won, and won big almost every time, and the people were positively rabid about the Huskers.  Flags fly at half staff all over the state when Nebraska lost, and when you went out anywhere on Game Day, all you saw was a sea of red.  Those of us who knew there actually were other teams found it "resistible".  LOL    Anyway, I really was going somewhere with that before I got side tracked. (snort)   Mike did watch the game yesterday.  Since I am usually on my Laptop, I can enjoy it in the background.  When I used to have to get stuck actually watching and pretending to care with other folks, I didn't love it.  It was probably rude, but I have been known to bring a book to a New Year's Day party.   

I did talk via text to everyone in the family for Thanksgiving.  They all voted wrong, btw, and have the audacity to think that WE were the ones who voted wrong!     We basically don't talk about it, and that's sad to me.  I don't want to fight, but I hate that I have to avoid certain subjects with people I love, and who I think (maybe) love me.   To me, it's such a sad thing that people can't express a differing opinion and maybe even (gasp) learn from each other.  I know you and I see the world differently, but we can still respect each other knowing we don't see things the same way.   That's the way it always used to be, in my long lost youth, and no one needed to retreat to a Safe Room if they were forced to hear an opinion that wasn't theirs.  What the heck happened?  

I can't wait to see your Christmas cards!  You are so clever!!

OhMyGosh, has Jordan learned Nothing?    Thank goodness your mom can be The Bank, but what a dummy.  I'd like to give him a swat in the seat of the pants.    You make me aware of how lucky I am that my Dr bills are pretty easy to understand.  A new company took over a year ago, and at first I didn't like them.  Talk about being over zealous ~~ I would go in for an appointment at my Dr's office, and the gal at the desk would say that I had a $9 bill and I could pay it then and there if I'd like.   I hadn't even received a bill yet, but it was apparently on line and they were asked to "remind" their customers.   I would say "No Thank You.   I haven't even seen the bill yet!"   Really annoying.  Made me feel as if I were late, when I hadn't even received the bill yet!   Pul-eeze.  I will examine the bill and check it against what the insurance has paid and THEN I will pay it, thank you very much.   I am guessing I'm not the only one who felt that way, because they never mention any money owed anymore.   Now I rather like the company, and their online reminder system for appointments and results and such.   

I think having Medical bills turned over to a collection agency is more frequent than not, and while I guess it could effect your credit rating ~ though I'm not sure ~ no one really looking at your credit would get too concerned with a small bill turned over, or even a large one as long as you were working to pay it off.   I had that happen when I had the cardiac arrest and was in the hospital for 18 days.  There was one bill I didn't receive, and so they turned it over.  I hit the ceiling and then the floor and then the ceiling again, but actually as soon as I talked to them and paid it, everything was fine and no damage done..... except to my blood pressure.

Have a happy day!

Good Morning! 
I had another 2 hour night's sleep last night.  Aarrgghh. Yesterday was mostly a nice, somewhat productive day until I made a big mistake and undid about half of the work I had done with my cards.   I have an idea to salvage at least part of them ~ maybe ~ but it will still be a lot more work, and I really thought I would report that I was finished today.   
Next year, when I tell you about a really cute or beautiful new Christmas stamp or die, would you please remind me of how much fun I had THIS year!   Like a dog with a bone, I can't let go of anything I have started and committed myself to, but if I never START . . . 

Yesterday was still pretty nice weather-wise, but temps are getting colder.  It's currently barely above freezing, heading for a "high" in the low 50s.  I think Winter is on the way.

Our mail is often delivered after dark these days thanks to the Daylight Saving Time change.  I went out to get the mail last night and Sue drove up to return some dies she had borrowed and let us know she and John would pick up the Christmas tree next week.   She was sitting in her nice warm car and I was standing beside it, without a jacket, and was getting pretty cold.  lol    She complimented our Christmas lights, and from the mailbox I looked at them and decided that I quite like them.  Less IS more!  I think the new company also used more or brighter lights or something.  I was quite pleased.

Hooray ~ you got your computer back finally ~~ and hooray times two that he only charged $60.   I hope he did a really good job and you didn't lose anything.   Did he say what was wrong, besides the missing keys?

Have a happy day,and Stay Warm!
