I am making some progress getting caught up after my bout with tiredness. I will continue tomorrow. It will soon be time to get started on dinner, so I am going to watch some TV with Hubby until then. TTYT

I'm president of my DD's school's band boosters. We are trying to come up with some fundraiser ideas for the school year. Plus I need to make up a flyer for the school's open house so all the 6th grade band parents know when and where our meetings are.
I'm also DD's soccer club team rep, so I have to attend the monthly board meeting so that is Monday night so I need to be ready for it too.

And to top everything off I got an email from oldest DS's high school asking me to join the athletic boosters this year. Anybody know how to clone yourself

Well I hope everyone has had a grand day. Enjoy your evening!!!
You sure are busy! How old are your kids mommyby3?

Our church has always had an Irish priest, so the Irish members thought they were the "in group," I guess. The new priest was from Spain and the group did not like the changes he made. Yes, this was the priest that I posted the pictures of. Such a nice guy, and he tried so hard. I was going to be helping him on pronunciation, even though there were only minor areas he needed help in. The thing is that there are no Irish priests, but you cannot tell that group anything. I don't know what they will do if they get another priest that is not a fluent English speaker. Who are they going to blame then? I don't think they thought through all the repercussions at all. I heard that the meeting got really nasty, so I wonder how they will face the rest of us, especially if we cannot get a priest at all!!! Only the ones who wanted him gone were at the meeting. The rest of us went to the church and prayed while the meeting was going on in another building. Sad, sad, sad.

The dentist appointment went well, thank goodness. I go for a cleaning next week, and then I can get started on the Zometa with my oncologist.

I meant to ask, what will your working hours be? Who will babysit Harlowe?

I think I am going to take a short nap and be back later.
C'mon over!! The more, the merrier!! And thank you.

It's so sad what is going on in your parish. I will keep all of you in my prayers.I know how much you liked him.
((Hugs))

I'm glad that your appointment went well!! Extra prayers for you once you start Zometa, as well.

Since I am an independent contractor, it's whenever I want. That being said, I don't make any money until I have a closing. I will be going into the office every day, soaking up as much information as I can. I will get to know the other agents, and shadow them as much they are willing!! It will be a bit chaotic in the beginning, getting set up, computer wise, transferring my license over go the brokerage, taking more classes, getting professional photos taken, business cards, ads, etc. Nights, weekends, whatever is needed. However, that will be more when I'm active. I have the keys to the office, but it is only open M-F. Agents can come & go as needed with their clients.

Harlowe will be at home with Adrian, and we will miss each other dearly.

I'm just grateful that he works from home right now.

xx

I was just thinking of you, Santas, Smurfs, Nutcrackers, and Shiny Brites!!

Have you ever bought anything from the Christmas Loft?

I love their stuff, and they have Possible Dreams.

She notorized it, stating that she was the one who made the original copy. The girl at the driver's license office agreed to take that as proof, then I had to give her my birth certificate, a recent power bill, and my conceal/carry gun permit...just to prove that I am who I said I was. LOL

Anyway, it finally worked and I can legally drive again. My next mission, should I choose to accept it, is to get a replacement SS card. Stand by for more intrigue.

I hope y'all have a great day!
what , no request for your first born? LOL
