oh and vera, i'm so looking for that book.........thank you!!!!!!!

So I was looking into this whole "scholastic book" thing from the school.. you buy books on a discount and the class gets points and books as well..
The Kissing Hand is on there Smile

and WOW the prices are DIRT CHEAP for books in this club... I checked a few on amazon to see if it really was a deal .. and I was shocked!
Hello Christmas shopping .. Owen will be getting a whole box of books!

I love the scholastic books at school...I remember being little and getting the booklets and just staring at them...occasionally I was able to buy one.....now the kids get the booklets almost once a week...i now know why my mom only bought them for me once in a while...it adds up....I feel like i need to get them a book from there everytime they send it home....all that begins next week for us Smile

colll...i missed all about you call from sarah about jacks poop... ROFL they are funny.....glad you told them like it is ROFL

I went shopping a couple of years ago with my niece and she got a call from her husband to come home and change their son :rolleyes: he's such a jacka$$ to begin with....my nephew who was 17 at the time was at the house with him and said "P..you're such a jacka$$ I'll change the kid' and he did....

Ruth, I wonder about how things are now compared to then too. My brother and I used to ride our bikes to our grandparent's house 5 miles away! When we were probably around 10-12. :eek: I can't imagine. Oh, and hilarious about the baby races!!! ROFL I hope this trip turns out better than expected on all fronts.

Kelly, I love scholastic books! That's where almost all our books come from. Can't beat the price!

Peggy, wow, next week already!?! I think I need to look at the calendar and get planning too!

I love Scholastic, when I worked in the daycare I'd get an order every week, needless to say the boys have enough books, yet I buy more at the bookstore all the time lol.

I can't believe Everly will be a year old tomorrow, ugh, I wish the time would slow down a bit

Didn't multi-quote. :rolleyes: Never thought there would 40 posts to try and remember.

Colleen, cracking up about Sarah calling you for the poop. ROFL You are simply the best.

Colleen, Karrie, and Kristi. If we lived where you guys did, (and didn't have a pool) Jax would be outside by himself all the time. Although we do live in the country (10 miles outside of the city limits) we are in a developement on 1 acre lots, so not much different to me than a city neighborhood. KWIM?

Hmmmm, see I've already forgotten everything else. dang it.

Peg, I think those girls are the perfect age to invite over FREQUENTLY to occupy Lyssa and Ty.

Ruth, :bighug: for packing and traveling and nursing. ROFL about the races.

Tracy, ditto to your childhood neiborhood roaming. Summertime, we left the house after breakfast, didn't return until lunch and then came home for dinner. We had to tell my mom where we were going and who we were going to be with. A park was one block away, but we were only allowed to go there if the rest of the neighborhood was going to. We pretty much played as a neighborhood about 10 of us. We'd all get together and come up with a plan, go home to our mothers and tell them what we were doing and then meet up again and take off. Or we would collectively stop at each house and to announce our plans. We did this especially if someone thought their mom wasn't going to let them go that day. We always got better results in numbers. LOL

Kat we have a wood playset with a platform clubhouse, swings, slide and monkey bars and rock wall, then we have a small Step2 climber with a slide. Various ride on toys and a wading pool that they like to have filled with bubble bath. LOL

Kelly, :bighug: Wow that year went really fast. Sounds like you have everything under control. I didn't expect anything different from you. Wink Have fun tomorrow and try and enjoy it.

Candace, I know you aren't going to see this, and if you do, you won't remember it, but know that I'm praying for you.

okay, so I get to use the bosses 450 until DH gets home.....but he called this morning and said it could be one week before he gets home. It seats five people.....We live three miles on dirt road and I have been bringing the three neighbors boys home from school. My truck seats six and so that is seven people which isnt so bad....how am I going to fit seven in a place for five with two car seats?

I feel bad for the boys....their parents are going thru a divorce and the mom took one son with special needs with her and three stayed here with the dad. The dad drives up to Santa Fe every day of school after he drops them off and gets back at 10-11 pm. The boys dont have a ride home from the bus stop, they would have to walk the three miles.

So I guess we will just pile in and go slow.

FB is being stupid though...half the time I'll have a message and the message thing won't come on...now all day today every time I go on there, it says I have a new message...nope, no new messages, but the message indicator thingy is on every time! So maybe it's a fluke, that's a little dumb it expired so quick!

Same issues here with GOT, I've added the same 3 neighbours 4 times today. Julie, I added your Mom, lol.

We're in for a long weekend too here in Canada! Yay for Labour Day. I'll let you know whether the camping makes for a good weekend or a bad one Wink

I just wanna skip out of here, but my assistant won't leave (she was off 10 minutes ago) and my ride doesn't come for an hour. So, I'm playing games and generally @#@#ing off until I can go home.

Oh, did I tell you about my dog? She is a very old chocolate lab. She's recently become incontinent. Last night she had diarhhea all over the hall upstairs at 3 am. DH got up and cleaned the wood, forgot the carpet :vomit:. DJ crawled through it going down the stairs this morning. I think its time to put her down, DH is reluctant. She was his since his first marriage and he's very very attached to her. Sigh. She's having trouble with stairs, falling and is generally just very very old. Poor dear.

Have a good nap Vera!

Nicole sorry you are stuck at work, that super sucks! Aw, that's sad about your dog. Sad I used to have a chocolate lab named Hershey...real original lol!!!

Colleen those shirts are so cute!!!!!!!!!!

Something's definitely up with Daphne...sleeping super late this morning, almost 13 hours. I asked Dh to not go on his errands and stay home with her so I could take Colby to school without her. She napped for 2 HOURS while we were gone. Her head is burning up, but the rest of her body feels okay, never took her temp. Now she's been sleeping again for close to 2 hours!!!!!!

Chaty cathys.

And of course I forgot to multi-quote.

First - there's a Naartje outlet at my outlet mall!!! I thought of you ladies!!

Ruth - too funny about the baby races, lol.

Everybody should read Free Range Kids - the blog is okay, but the book is great. It's about how crime is down since we were kids, yet the media makes us think there's kidnappers and killers in every other house!

I let Miles play out front without me. Usually only when I'm busy doing something - like unloading/putting away groceries. I keep the door to the garage open and yell for him every so often. The back yard is fenced, yet he rarely has any interest in playing back there alone.

Hope Daphne is just fighting something off!

Whole foods conversation at the meat counter

Super hot meat guy named Christopher asks me what I want. Eyes down cause I had a smile on my face I asked for 6 pounds of grass fed beef in 1 pound packages
(#1 my foodsaver busted, #2 I felt super lame asking for it in so many packages)
FYI today only grass fed organic ground beef 4.99/lb

anyways Everly proceeds to bat her eyes and laugh and all out FLIRT with Mr. Hottie!

Hottie to E " so do you always flirt with the guys?"

Me in a moment of greatness " yes she does we are a team she reels them in for me"
and she gets her skills from me" ROFL
Hottie- "Well her gets her looks from you too"
Me- " oh yeah you think so?"
Hottie to another coworker who walks up.. " hey ___ I was just telling this lady how cute her baby was... "
he proceeds to wink at me
like a total dumbass I flash a HUGE smile
Hottie- " So pretty ladies what else"
Me- "hmmm hmmmm yeah ok I will take some Bacon!"
****** I do not need bacon .. already a pound at home****
Hottie to me as I am walking away " if you happen to need more beef I am here till 7pm so just ask for me and I will get it for you"
Me- " well I just bought 6 pounds of meat and pound of bacon I didn't need soo I think I'm good"
as I am walking away my face is thirty kinds of red :eek:

Yeah.. feeling good ladies feel-n good!
