DYK  I got to hang out with both my Grandsons today!

DYK   Chase is pulling himself up to things and standing alone!

DYK   Amyah and Kynsie are learning to read and write =)..

DYK  I made a bunch of food today and pigged out...

DYK  John went to the meat market with me and we got lots!

DYK   He was pretty impressed with the little store in the middle of nowhere on a dirt road..

DYK  We sold his car on EBAY - and they paid...

DYK  We were waiting on an International wire transfer and I was nervous...

DYK  The car will be going to the new owner in SWEDEN at the end of the month!

DYK  I got sent back to the shipping dept at work..

DYK  I have to decide if I want to stay back there and I don't know what to do..

DYK  I went to another factory for an interview a month ago..

DYK I want to work there but worry about Maggie..

DYK  I will always worry about my kids =)..

DYK I am going to reapply at that other factory first of the year..

DYK  I am pumped for Thanksgiving !

DYK  I will not go shopping on Black Friday..

DYK  I am glad our board is kinda back..

DYK  I hope everyone had a good week-end !

DYK that when Sandy said "DYK I really like having the extra 5 days between Thanksgiving and Christmas" I totally agreed with her!!! 

DYK I think the time leading up to Christmas Day is very exciting!?

DYK that my houseguests and their dogs left yesterday morning?

DYK that I will probably still be vacuuming up dog hair until Christmas?

DYK I am back to work now and I have a lot to do?

DYK we STILL haven't moved to our new (to us) offices?

DYK we were told the end of August officially and back in May (unofficially) that we would be moving?

DYK I think that is crazy!?

DYK I am sick of working out of boxes and quit packing?

DYK I finally got some winter shoes?

DYK Amber got them for me at K-mart Black Friday?

DYK they are Jacklyn Smith and very cute?

DYK I love that girl?  Amber, not Jacklyn Smith lol

DYK I better get back to catching up on the board and then back to work?

DYK if saying no to cookies for breakfast makes you a bad mom, then I am terrible too?

DYK I ran 3 miles this morning?

DYK Jeff then came over and I made us breakfast?

DYK now all my cooking is done, the kitchen is clean, and I am getting ready to go get cleaned up and dressed?

DYK I love the Wii Lego games?

DYK that I am off to play some Batman 2 before I go to my parent's house?

DYK its Thankgiving?

DYK I hope everybody has a good day?

DYK if my husband ever did one of those surprise homecoming things I would punch him in the face?

DYK it would REALLY piss me off?

DYK I told him this?

DYK he laughed at me?

DYK I wonder where Shelly is...

DYK Baby B is still asleep, he has an ingrown toenail and I think thats why he hasn't been sleeping well, his toe hurt..

DYK I gave him tylenol and he passed out???(not literally LOL he just fell asleep not like passed out in a bad way)

DYK I am going to have to watch Sofia the first more times than I care to think about today?

DYK that does NOT make me happy?

DYK I am rambling?

DYK my two year old is acting like a brat because I told her she couldn't have cookies for breakfast???

DYK I laughed at her?

DYK I am sure it wasn't nice but seriously...she is being ridiculous

DYK that I had to work today, too?

DYK that we had a two-hour early release, so we got out at 1, but the kids were so wound up it felt like the day would never end?

DYK when I got home my folks had just parked the 5th wheel and were getting all hooked up?

DYK we got take-and-bake pizza so we wouldn't have to cook/do dishes tonight?

DYK Erick's back has been hurting him a lot, although he doesn't really know why?

DYK that makes him really grouchy!

DYK I don't love that?

DYK he got a massage this afternoon, and it seems to be better, but he needs to be better about doing his PT exercises.

DYK that we booked a cottage at Alderbrook, our favorite get-away, for Dec. 29-31st?

DYK that we are really looking forward to it - it is the reward for surviving the horrendously busy month of December?

DYK that while we are hosting, I am NOT cooking dinner? That is all on Erick. I make a fruit salad and a veggie tray and dip, and that is pretty much my entire contribution. Well, that and opening wine and pouring drinks and doing dishes!

DYK that brother-in-law and wife are at the inlaws this year, so it will just be 8 of us - the four of us, my mom and dad and Erick's mom and sister?

DYK that is just fine with me!

DYK I love these posts?

DYK I am happily having a drink or two, celebrating being done with my cooking?

DYK I also made homemade beer cheese?

DYK that is a t-total PITA to make?

DYK my whole family devours it and loves when I make it?

DYK we'll eat that with crackers and veggies waiting for turkey time tomorrow?

DYK Jeff should be here soon?

DYK time for another beer?

DYK that I miss our nightly MSN chats with Chrissy, Dani, and Renee?   The four of us shared many, many cyber beers.

DYK that Amber dropped her phone and the screen shattered too?

DYK that she used Scotch tape to keep it together and it still works? 

DYK She does not have any insurance on her phone?

DYK it looks pretty ghetto but she is making do until she can afford to replace it?

DYK that phone was a replacement of one she dropped in the toilet about 3 months ago?

DYK I told her she needs to get insurance and then this stuff will stop happening to her?

DYK that is the way it works.... you don't have insurance, stuff happens, you DO have insurance, nothing happens? LOL

DYK I think I am the only one from the board working today?

DYK I have TONS to do tonight and tomorrow?

DYK I am also cooking for everyone?

DYK that on my menu is turkey, cornbread stuffing, broccoli casserole, mashed potatoes & turkey gravy, corn casserole, green beans w/bacon grease & potatoes, macaroni & cheese, sweet potatoes and of course, rolls?

DYK dessert will be pumpkin pie, apple pecan pie and cherry cheese pie?

DYK that Ashleigh is making my mom's pumpkin pie for the 2nd year now?

DYK that my mom's pumpkin pie is about the only pumpkin pie that I like?

DYK that I am glad she is excited about making the pies?

DYK that Amber is going to make the broccoli casserole, macaroni & cheese and cherry cheese pies?

DYK that I will have 3 extra guests (well, 5 if you count the dogs) for Thanksgiving this year?

DYK that the total is 10 adults (me, hubby, Ash, Amber, Nick, Dad, Mom, Hubby's sister Glenda, my aunt from Cali - Caren & her friend Donna) Luke, Presley, 1 yellow lab (Haley) 1 shorty jack russell (Jeremy or "Germy" according to Luke) and last but not least, 1 West Highland White Terrier - Brady!?

DYK my aunt and her friend have cleaned up several areas of my house, including getting down spider webs, changing bathroom trash cans and cleaning out the microwave and this is on top of them keeping the dishes done and the counters cleaned off in the kitchen?

DYK yesterday they vacuumed the living room and all the furniture... Ashleigh had just done it Saturday but that both Haley and Jeremy shed like crazy!?

DYK I thought that was very considerate of them?

DYK I think I do not mind her being here so much... even WITH her dogs... LOL?

DYK that I think my other aunt who was in touch with my aunt from Cali the most knew about the dogs but kept it to herself until it was too late?

DYK I think that is really rotten?

DYK I am sorry to say that Sandy enjoys the DYK thread way more than I do?

DYK I am not real fond of it but I do like reading about everyone's stuff?

DYK I always get started and don't know when to stop when I post on these threads?

DYK I better get back to work.... ???
