I would really like to have this rug. Its so cute and would look darling in my entry hall for dirty boots and wet shoes this fall. I think it would be delightful, Only problem its $650. plus shipping for the UK. Holy Moly! Guess I can keep wishin, isn't that what dreams are for??
Yesterday was crazy. I am generally scheduled to be at CASA court on Thursday. Nope it was yesterday. The docket started at 9:30. my CASA case was no.2 . To make a long story short, the first witness was called at 1:30. HELLO, can they not tell time??? Anywho its being continues to 11/23. I will forget stuff by then. Thanks goodness I dont have to make any decisions.
Its been a rainy day here in Cville. I made a cute dress for a friends daughter. Pics later. A dog bed for Moey and did laundry. Hubs has a meeting tonight so I am gettin ready to throw something in the oven with my acorn squash. It sound healthy, but by the time I slap all that butter and brown sugar on it, wow we are talking calories! uh huh hmmmmm.
Last night I took Moey out to potty in the backyard, she found a frog, she was as scared as the frog. Speaking of animals and critters. We have had a mouse explosion in this house. I caught 5, yes 5 of them today. My bait of choice is bread. Smush it all up in the holder part of the trap thingy and set it under the sink. bam, bam, bam, bam there it goes!
I was invited to a "slumber party" tonight. I though ...on a weeknight. Well. darlin you are not sleeping at this one. Its "thingy's" for the boudoir. Just let you imagination go way down in the gutter and roll around for a while. I saw pictures of things in a catalog I didnt know what they were or what you do with them. I AM NOT going tonight, I have something else I have to do, but I don't think I want those visual images in my head. It might cause a thunderstorm.
Cant tell you what I doin tonight , hehehe-- momma, you want to know, cant tell you its a Christmas surprise, but one hint... 1. BFF Pam is going with me. thats it 1 hint.
Better go get my nutritious meal in the oven and co another mouse check under the sink.
I found this picture on KappaPrep blog, anyway I love the picture on the fireplace mantel! Do you?? I am thinking maybe I might just make me a smaller one.
We had a great weekend. Ryan moved to Tulsa and the house is quiet again. Well not really, Moey is here. My dining room is now a storage room and will be for another year... We didnt use the room except for holidays.
I am looking at places to go for a quick Anniversary trip. I could wait and go to Ireland next spring or Im thinking Savannah after Christmas. Our anniv is Dec 29. Hmmmmmm whats a girl to do.
I have a ton of things to do this week, PEO, CE Class, Court /CASA case, ??? I cant say because my mom would know what she is getting for Christmas, clean the garage to get the cars in, tidy the house and vac, finish some crafting stuff and finish some things I started a few months ago. I need to go to OKC but the weekend is full of stuff too! Maybe next Mon-Tues?? Are you home Mom?
Have a great day, enjoy some cider and pumpkin bread with me in a few minutes.
I was scanning blogs this morning instead of doing the house chores and a blogger had Bubba's the other night. Oh my! This is the all time best chicken in the south! Its down by SMU in Dallas. In the summer its hotter than H*ll! But the chicken melts in your mouth. I wonder if they would FedX and overnight shipment of chicken, rolls, mashed potatoes and gravy.
I made some yummy pumpkin/chocolate chip muffin/cupcakes for tomorrow nights tail gate at TU. I am going to teach at New Haven tomorrow and the game is after work. So I am making some chili tonight and letting it simmer on low all day in hubs office. SO we will have chili, Frito's, cupcakes/muffins, tea, sweet tea! I hope the rain stops. I don't like watching anything in the rain.
Better get going this morning. I am helping Pam with a catering job, then going to see my little CASA girl at her daycare, then to staff meeting at New Haven and finally to my CASA girls foster home!. Oh yea and I need to go to Reasors to grab some chili fixins. Then home!
Yep, those Cowboys won a football game! Go Pokes!! You really really have to be a true Cowboy to follow OSU football, you never know if we are going to win or not. Yippee for this week
TU plays on Wednesday.... ESPN be sure to look for me! I will be wearing blue. hehehe!
Busy weekend- Ryan is much better. The Swine flu was derailed with Tamiflu and he will be back at work tomorrow. I didn't accomplish much this weekend. I was so cozy in the house, so I read a good book and drank hot cocoa.
Speaking of hot cocoa... I have gained 6 lbs since Aug. I will not be making any more bread, cookies, cupcakes, pumpkin/chocolate chip muffins! No more Starbucks Pumpkin Spice for me. Just straight coffee and toast for breakfast, 1/2 sandwich for lunch and a little supper. I fixed beef tips and noodles with a gigantic salad for lunch. No supper for me!
I cant trust people anymore! Wednesday I was hit by a guy in Tulsa. He backed up and smashed the Jeep. He was to call me yesterday with his ins. info. No call! I called him this am and he pretended to be someone else with that new phone number- I am not stupid. I let him know that I filed a police report & he is in violation because he is refusing to give me his insurance and there are video cameras at the scene of the crash- by a BOK. I called his school- (an internationally know aeronautics school )and spoke with the VP of Students. Hmmmm the boy called back and said he was sorry and would pay out of pocket. Then his mother called and told me not to call his school again. As long as he pays for damages... I won't call. Lie to me again and I will come to the school.Moral to the story: Always call the police no matter whether they look nice or not, no matter if its a little fender bender or not. ALWAYS CALL THE POLICE. I did all of this without hubs. mmmmm proud of myself.
Its really a Fall day here in Cville. The rain is a beautiful little Fall rain. No thunder,which keeps Moey from barking like a psycho dog. But, it does make me want some hot cocoa and whipped cream. I am having some eating issues. Since I had my parasite experience on the Ukraine Mission trip, my tummy has been weird. I can't always digest the simplest things, anyway lately I have been ravenous! I want to eat everything! I mean everything. My belly looks a bit pudgy! So, I am staying away from making banana bread with those old bananas, hot cocoa with whipped cream, cookies, cakes, pies, you know those pesky carbs. Well, today I am craving me some cards.
Son 1 is sick- yukko. He came home from work yesterday and has a temp of 101.7 this am.. We are off to the Dr. at 1:00. even though he 27, he's still my little boy- yes I am a helicopter mom! He is moving out of our house in a week or two. He's been here since Feb. and I am going to really miss having him here. But he will be in Tulsa, not Frisco. He will be much closer to his job and his friends.
We took down the pool and gave it away. I didn't use it much this summer. So we might join the YMCA in Owasso. Oh, wait a minute... we have a treadmill, elliptical, weights etc right here at home. hmmmm I can think of another way to spend $700. per yr.
Time to go disinfect the kitchen. bathroom, son 1 's room etc.
Have a happy day and by all means Keep Strong and Carry On!
I got up this morning to my coffee in bed, since it was a pre-school working day. I rode in to Tulsa with hubs, had a great day with the 2 yr. old. Ryan is sick and I went by Akins to get him some medicine/soup makings. A car in front of me began to turn, then decided he couldnt make it and began to back up. RIGHT SMACK INTO MY! Yep, I saw it coming, honked my horn, and bam he hit me. Poor New Jeep. Yep, ots only 5 months old and bam.
The girl in the other car thought everything looked good on the Jeep, not so much darlin, there is a scratch, dent and little holes in the bumper. It will be fixed!
Happy Monday- The weather is cool, and so peaceful on the backporch with my coffee. Today I have a list of things to do: oil change- my Jeep finish taking down the pool get out the warmer clothes, laundry and put away the summer ones. get some groceries finish my list for CEU at BAUMC- a class I am teaching at Boston Avenue make chili nails done I think thats it for today.
My background was looking Summery, so now I look Fall.
What a busy day. I started with a massage, then Walgreen, 2 different Banks, Hobby Lobby-stuff to teach my class at BAUMC, Wal-Mart, Freckles Frozen Custard, furminator and bathe the dog, -also picked off a tick :( bath me, tiny power nap, fixed dinner, laundry, and my main goal today was to get out all the winter clothes and put away summer, and decorate the house for fall. hmmmmm maybe this weekend.
