I woke up this morning at 3:30 am with what I thought was a sinus headache. I called the Dr at 9 and went on in for a sinus headache and the infected swollen big toe!!! Anywho, I had another migraine! This is just befuddling to me. Is that a word? I am not sure, but it works. Anyway- I took some medicine and they turned out the lights in the room. I waited 10 minutes and most of it was gone. I also got a shot in the hiney and some antibiotics for the sinus / toe infection. I have to chart/ keep track of the migraine. Too many in 6 mos and I need a CT scan of the brain. SCARY to me! If you know me I will have a panic attack just thinkin about it. I generally get on the computer and come up with a diagnosis. But this one I will leave to the DR. I have some new migraine meds that I take at the first onset of a headache.
I dont think they run in the fam., hmmmm do they mom?
The big toe was a result of my home pedicure. Seems I cut the big toe too much! Great, I was just trying to save some dollars.
I am wondering if we will go to school tomorrow. If not I wan tot run to Tulsa and go to a store Tatermash. They have oilcloth and I really want some for my craft table. Also for Moeys dog dish area.
Thursday is Dry Gulch. It may rain, but I will grab umbrellas. We will go anyway.
After I slept for an hour or so, I made some cranberry/orange bread for gifts and I need to get a special thingy made for my BFF's front window at the kitchen. I know she will read this, so she will just hav e to wonder what is????
She made me the most yummmmmmy cheesecake last week with bananas foster sauce and would not let me pay her. Will I will pay her one way or another. This will be soooooooo cuuuuute!
Better go warm up a chicken casserole from last night. Its a little dry so I think I will add a bit of milk to it.
Oh, I almost forgot. This is post number 303! OH my gosh, thats a lot of yakin on my part. So I will give away the blue turquoise and red necklace on the flikr next to the post.

The streets have a sheet of snow/ice and its so cold for the kids to wait for the busses. We have another snow day tomorrow.
I ran my errands this morning. Put the Jeep in 4 WHD and get going. So tomorrow I can stay at home and hibernate. Except something is wrong with my big toe. Its red, swollen and hurts! I dont know what I have done. Guess I better get into the Dr tomorrow since Im home.
Not much news around here. I have all my Christmas here and wrapped. I am ready to go.
Oh, my necklace was featured on www.heatherannmelzer.typepad yesterday! I was so excited.
off to put some wood on the fire.

I hope your turkey is in the oven and your pies are baked. My tiny turkey- white meat only is baking, the red velvet cheesecake is made, the sweet potatoes are cooked- not doctored up yet and I am on a roll this morning.
I have talked to son #1 this morning and he is decorating his house in Frisco, phase one of the 3 phase program. Ahhh, I do remember those days he would decorate here. Many trips to get "just a few more light, Mom"! I have called the fam in Ponca, but NO ONE IS ANSWERING!!!!. sigh, sigh, sigh.
Christmas stuff is coming out of the attic today. I just cant put it up before Thanksgiving, I dont know why, just tradition I guess. Hubs is out putting up the fence, son #2 is on his way and I am so thankful for my family, at least the ones that answer the phone, life is great. What are you thankful for?
Oh, did you all see Oprah yesterday. It was the big give away. Well, I bet those people were perplexed. Oprah had a lot of things that dont cost a lot. Wow, I got some great ideas. Now, my fam is all meeting in OKC for Christmas. We will do something that wont cost them a thing, I will make small boxes for everyone. They will also get some cards with: I love you because... or I am thankful for you because... etc. They have to fill one out for each person and put it in their box. I wanted to do a "take away " gift exchange. Whats that called? anyway we are spicing up Christmas. Lets have a bit more meaning.
I better get to the kitchen and done my apron! The boys will be hungry in a bit. Then a few power naps and off to Utica Square Lights On! That is our family tradition. We have even gone in the snow and sleet!
Have a great holiday and get up early and shop till you drop! I am finished! I got most everything online and its so fun to get those boxes at my door! Except for the stocking stuffers. Ahhh Target, I love that store for stockings.
Tootle loo, gobble gobble.

Then I need for hubs and son to get down the tree, and "stuff". We are having Christmas in OKC with the whole fam damily, but I am having some functions here and need to do some decorating. hmmmmmm., I would love to do everything in silver and red this year. Maybe the dollar store has some cheap stuff!!!!
My mom is not one to always put up the tree, I know exactly what you are thinking, NO TREE. Well I am coming so it better be up... MOM! What would Christmas be without the decorations up MOM! We wont have any little ones around except for my cousins little boys. I miss those sleepy little eyes getting up at Christmas and running to the tree to see what Santa brought. I dont think my boys 24 and 26 yrs and my niece and nephew, 24 and 28yrs will be running in to find what Santa brought. WE NEED SOME BABIES. But only 1 is married and I would just rather that we all go the route of marriage before children. That seems to be a though of the past, you know the marriage before children thingy. Guess I am just old fashion, I like that scenario best.
I need to go to some laundry, tidy up the house, run to Hamlet, Target and maybe the $ store.
Have a good day. Stay warm and cook away. I just heard that the avg American will need to RUN 20 miles to burn off the calories we ingest on Thanksgiving alone. Well that wont happen here, I have issues with running and my bladder. oh, my how ever will I get this all done.
Go pokes, beat those sooners........ I dreamin or a white Christmas too!

Whew, the weather has gotten so cold. I am not sure whether to keep Moey in or out. I don't want her to get cold. We don't have a dog house on the patio. She does have a snuggle blanket. Hmmm, whats the weather when you keep your doggy in the house??
Sat is our last TU football game. Its an afternoon game, so it wont be too cold.
Then 2 days at school, I AM SO READY! The kiddos are WILD !!!!! I mean really WILD. Its all I can to to teach and referee. They are wearing me "plum out"! I hope to make pumpkin pie in a cup tomorrow for our Fri cooking activity, if they can behave in the morning. hmmmm, we will see.
Not much other news. We will put up Christmas stuff next week. I have a couple of parties at the house, do I need to fru fru up a bit. Christmas will be in OKC at Mommas house. All the fam will be there.
Off to bed... I am gettin a head cold or sinus crap.
Friday, November 14, 2008
Tomorrow is SATURDAY... yippee. It was a long week. We are off to a TU BB game. Yep, its that season again. I think we will overlap with football a few weeks. But, there is also a 'free trade' craft show in Tulsa tomorrow that I want to go to before the BB game. We are also going to Atwoods to buy a generator... just in case we are without electricity for 11 days again this winter. NOT AGAIN IN THIS HOUSE. The generator may be my Christmas gift. hahahah
have a blessed weekend

But... what do you think about the new look??? Oh, dont look really close at the header until I figure out how to center the words and picture. I am sure its simple, but I dont know how yet.
Today was a beautiful day her in Cville. I had a funeral this morning. A dear friend of the family was 81 and lived a wonderful life. I will miss Doris very much. She ws very helpful to me when I first married and moved to Cville 29 yrs ago, She kept me sane in the this small town. She guided me through some obstacles! I will miss you Doris Schultheiss! I will see you soon in heaven.
Tomorrow is my appt with the surgeon at TLC. I am so iffy on the whole enhancement thing. It wont cost anything, but you only get one pair of eyes. More about that tomorrow.
I have a couple of orders to get out as soon as my finger gets better. Cuts and flux don't mix.
Have a great day
Tuesday, November 11, 2008
Business is great. I have had 3 orders form the show in OKC and a few more from other areas. I am staying as busy as I want to be right now. Especially with a cut finger. Cuts and flux dont work well together. ouch!!!
Better go, I need a big fat bath and I went to Bath and Body this afternoon. Hmmmmm.

I am off again this weekend to OKC to do a craft show at mom's church...Church of the Servant- OKC. Come on out if you live in the area. Mention my blog and I will give you 15% off.
The weather has finally turned cool. I love the chilly nights and the cuddle weather in my flannel jammies and chenille bathrobe. hmmmm so cozy.
I got my Smart Board installed at school today. It is way cool ! I am going to have fun with it tomorrow morning. I have spentabout 30 minutes with it today.
Moey the grand dog went to the vet on Wednesday. This trip was a mere $ 192.00!! Yes, that's right $192! holy crap, where is the copay? i about crapped out. She has a staff infection. The vet said she was pale. how can a black and white dog be pale?????? I think her gums were not a rosy pink and her nose was warm. So after 1 shot for the infection, 10 days of antibiotic, 6 mos of flea/heart worm pills and another 2 times per week for 4 week pills, 1 blood test, we got to come home. I can think of a lot of stuff to purchase for $192.00. Good gosh. She had to have a "nerve pill" last night during the storm. I held her for 2 hours and then I was so sleepy. She wouldn't calm down,so I gave her knock out pill and put her in her bed. Geeezzzzeee the life of that pooch!
Guess that's about all the update. Oh yea, the tickets are on sale for the annual Oprah type give away at Battle Creek Church in Broken Arrow, I went last year and we had so much fun and go some wonderful give aways. If you are in the area look it up on the web. Its a good girls night out,
Better get to bed, tomorrow is work at school. massage at 4, pack and go to OKC, Craft show on Sat, come home and Church on Sunday.... back to the same cycle.......

I got to Norman with my friend Sheila and we found the Fairgrounds. We unloaded and walked into the consignment sale. NO HIGH END HERE! This was maybe a high end garage sale. I guess I was expecting it to be like the one at the Tulsa Just Between Friends . Nope. So, I get my booth ready and looking cute, see how cute it looks:
So, anyway, its 10:00 and a few ladies are coming in after they drop off their kids. A few more come, probably about 20 all day, maybe 30. They are looking for bargains and so not looking for my kind of jewelry. So, I sold 2 and though maybe this will pick up after lunch. NOPE I cold a few more to the Mary Kay ladies and the girls next to me , www.mellyroo.com. Then, that was it for the day. My cousin, who I never see came by and thats the only reason we stayed until 6pm. The event was over at 8 pm each night. So we went back to Moms, and drinks some yummo wine and enjoyed our little selves!
Fast forward to day 2. We stopped at Target and got a few new items: and cuuuute black dress for me to wear to a TU dinner for donors on Thursday for $19.00 ! Go fig. We then went back to the event and stayed until noon. During this time the Mary Kay lady gave me a facial and we laughed and joked for a while. We loaded up an d went to the OKC Affair of the Heart. GOOD GOSH, that is sooooo huge. It makes Tulsa's look pitiful. Its in 7, yes 7 buildings!!!! WE made every building and had a ball! We ate a yummy strawberry crepe, shopped bought some stuff and had so much fun. I met a lady from Wichita that makes the same jewelry. Hers is PERFECT! She gave me some pointers and her email. If I run up to Wichita she will teach me so interesting shortcuts. So, anyway we had fun and I made enough to pay for the booth rental. Whatever. So I will take the things I on hand and go to my moms church in OKC for their big show and that will be the end of shows.
I have always said I wouldnt do craft shows. They are so iffffffy. I love to make thing and want to keep it a hobby and do it when I want to. I dont like the people looking and being judgmental. Its just hurts my little feelings! Yes, it sure does. I think too, I dont rely on this for income money. SO I dont want it enough to spend as much time and energy to make tons of product....
Have a great weekend

I just love to wake up leisurely and drink my coffee on the back porch and wear my jammies until 10:00 or longer and watch HGTV.
Yesterday was an errand day and boy did I get a lot finished.
Dentist- the TMJ one
Gap- a good sale on pants and t-shirts-- long sleeve ones, soooo soft!
I went to the cuuuutest little Teacher Store in Owasso, I got a few books and a cute key chain. I wanted a bag with my initial on it, so cute, but I just decided I have 2000000 bags, no more for a while.
Bunco... I was a sub for a friend. you pay $10. and the winner gets $$$, guess who was the winner, moi! yep I had 3 bunco's.
decorate a bit with the pumpkins. I bought a corn stalk thingy at Reasors and crammed it in the Jeep. I had to sweep that poor thing out.
I got out all the fall/winter clothes a washed them and put them in the nice clean closet! I washed the down comforter too. I washed it in the Tyler Candle clothes wash stuff, heavenly!!!!
I finished 100 pieces of jewelry to take to Norman. I took pictures of them but the batteries are dead and I can't find new ones in this house. I even tried to rob them from another battery powered item. I am not sure about this venture. Its a consignment sale at Norman. There are only about 7 vendors and so I cant really call it a craft show. hmmmm, I may be hawkin my "stuff" on my blog! I really had fun making things and have lots of ideas for new stuff too. A teacher friend is going with me, we will have fun no matter what I sell. If you are in the Norman/ OKC area come see me Thur-Sat at the Norman Fairgrounds.
The Affair of the Heart is in OKC this weekend. I could just selll my stuff out of the back of the Jeep.... hahahaha
I made chili tonight and Lance and Laura came for chili, Frito's and pumpkin pie. yummo.
What else, Oh my computer has the big hugggge font. I cant get rid of it. I hate when it does that. Oh yea I got some really cute shoes this afternoon. They are sketchers, that crisscross. I was going to show you a pic, but I am too tired to look online for one, maybe tomorrow
I better get to bed and snuggle in my clean sheets and new pillows and clean down comforter,

Last week hubs decided we would go to the SMU/TU football game in Dallas. So , he said lets ride the "Golden Hurricane" bus. It will be great. No driving, no packing and unpacking.... so OK we did. The way down was a piece of cake. I snoozed and woke up to the midway between Tulsa and OKC. What the heck, seems they needed to changed drivers in Norman. Ok, grab the book and have another snooze. We arrived at SMU and had a great dinner at the tent and went to the game. Good game too!!!!!!!!! Anyway, I am rambling... We got on the bus to come home at 10:30 pm. A wreck on 75 N. so we got moving north toward Tulsa around 11:15. We tossed and rolled on each other trying to get comfortable. Not happening! Hubs could nto sleep because I was all over him. I couldnt not sleep either. We got home at 4:00 am. Both of us slept until 11ish. Got up, ate breakfast and fell asleep on the couch until 4:00 pm. Off to Red Robin and back home to bed. I am still tired.
Fall break is here.
We has parent/teacher conference last night and tonight, arggggghhhh I am glad its over.
TMJ dentist, nails, laundry, Sephora, and some general errands and finishh jewelry. What a great 5 day I will have.
