Weekend Plans?
Fri, 12-07-2012 - 6:45am

I only had to log in twice this morning. I got a new message this morning. This told me I was an "anonymous user" and had no rights to post comments. I'll be shocked if anyone responds to this thread because I understand the tech issues are as bad as they ever were with this latest software change. My patience is waning too.

That said, we made it to Friday. What's going on this weekend?

I have DS’s basketball game this evening.   I have veggie soup in the Crock Pot so we can eat beforehand.

After that DS is going with his dad so they can deer hunt in the morning.  

My plan for Saturday is to get up early, go run (if it’s not raining), and then take DD to softball.   I’ll then have 2 hours on my own.   Traffic will be nuts, but I am making a final run at getting all the Christmas shopping done.

DD wants to bake Christmas cookies at some point this weekend.   That’ll probably be Saturday afternoon.   Provided I get the grocery run done too while out.

Saturday night the kids and I will just stay home.   Sounds great.

Sunday will be church and cleaning.

Tonight we were supposed to bake because we had a "cookie exchange" tomorrow night on my hubby's side of the family but she cancelled it.  I was all psyched up to bake tonight but that kind of took the wind out of my sails.  But... I just might bake anyway!  We will see...

Tomorrow morning I need to get some laundry done... I'm down to my emergency underwear and emergency socks (I wore Halloween socks yesterday... lol... thank goodness you can't see them because my shoes are kind of high top).  I also need to make a menu and grocery shop.

Tomorrow night, the cookie exchange is cancelled so I will probably watch the grandkids so Amber & Nick can go do their Blue Ray thing at his sisters house. 

Sunday is church and then football at my house again... Mary's dad had a surgery last week and had another one yesterday so she didn't want the hassle of having it at her house in case her dad needed her.  He lives alone.  I have another broken necklace to fix for one of my co-workers.  I fixed one last week for her and also made her a pair of earrings with the extra beads (she wanted the broken necklace shortened).  This necklace is VERY long and she wants me to make 2 necklaces, 2 different lengths for her out of it.  No problem... I can do that!  This huge long necklace is very heavy too... all the beads are glass... it apparently belonged to her step-mother and has some sentimental value to her so I hope I don't screw it up!

CanCan you believe we STILL have not moved offices???  But... I do see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I was there 2 weeks ago and
they were painting.  We got an e-mail yesterday with a tentative schedule for everyone who is moving... (IT people are movng in this
office since the rest of the floor is IT too).  This is the "tentative" schedule:·       

·        Painting - Complete on/before 12/8/2012

·        Electrical – no work required

·        HVAC - cleaning/filters and fan coil units; complete on/before 12/8/2012

·        Maintenance – light bulb replacement, minor repairs; complete on/before 12/8/2012. 
         NOTE: No wall mounted items prior to move

·        Plumbing – check kitchen sinks; complete on/before 12/8/2012

·        Lock shop – complete rekeying on/before 12/21/2012

·        Internal signage (temporary) – complete prior to 12/23/2012

·        Canopy signage – complete as vendor schedule allows

·        EVS – cleaning 12/17 through 12/20/12

·        Tentative move date 12/21 through 12/23/2012

·        IT – relocate telephones/computers as needed after 12/23/2012

       I HATE that they are going to move us right before our Christmas break.... I plan on taking the whole week between the holidays off work
so that means I will only have 1 day with the movers (Friday, 12-21) and they are going to complete it on Saturday the 22nd.... I think that
is just ludicrius!  Not sure if ludicrius is spelled correctly but you know what i mean! 

      I really don't get why it takes so dang long.... I am SO tired of living out of and around all these boxes!!  Oh well, what I think or
feel doesn't really matter now anyway, does it?  Nope.... lol

Well I got here.  Took a while and three log-ins.  Told me I was not authorized to post then the screen went blank came back and here I am.

Hmmmm - I wonder if Tracy's Guest that was messing with her furnace has moved on over here to mess with our board????

Any way tonight right after work we are going to the hospital to check in on my FIL.  He went to the doctor yesterday to have his foot looked at and the doctor sent him to the emergency room because he didn't like the way he looked.  When they took his blood pressure it was 254 over something.  They got it down but kept him last night for observation.  The doctor said he thought his blood pressure meds needed to be adjusted.  He was doing pretty good but I guess his blood pressure has gone back up and they are keeping for a while.  Hopefully we will get to go out to dinner after we visit and check-in on him.

Saturday I have a baby shower to go to in the afternoon and a semi-formal holiday thingy at night.  It is one of John's client's party.  As long as FIL is doing ok we will go.

Sunday I will hit the "Y" then I have to do a grocery run, laundry etc.  Depending on what is going on with my FIL will depend what else gets done or not.  I need to get some more Christmas shopping done.

Going to the shelter at 8:30 tomorrow to ready the dogs going to the PetSmart offsite adoption event and load them in the trailer.  Then I'll follow the truck and help until about noon or so.  Both of my "project dogs" from Tuesday's grooming attempt have been adopted, but there is another scruffy little terrier going, and I am going to concentrate on getting her into a home.

Then I need to finish wrapping presents and decide on a menu for our family Christmas, which looks like it will be on the 16th.  Christine does not have her girls for Christmas this year, and Amy's boys are going on a cruise with their father's family on 12/27, so were are exchanging our gifts and doing our roast beef dinner early so we can all be together.

Yes, the ex who left Amy with a year's salary worth of debt and had his house foreclosed is taking his kids on a CRUISE!!!!! His grandma died, and everyone has been drooling for 20 years over their anticipated inheritance, but I don't think the will has been probated yet.  Just where is he getting the money, I ask?  Crooked attorney, working for cash under the table?  Has he been hiding money in an offshore bank account for years?  Are his parents paying for it?  Excuse me while I go vomit.

And Amy gets $230 a month child support -- always late, and sometimes not in full.

Well, I have logged in 3 times now... hope this post goes through!

Weekend plans?

After school yesterday a couple of girlfriends took me out for a birthday drink, but I had to cut it short because I had to return my rental car and get my van back.  I was a little ticked about the timing of that. I didn't hear a thing from the collision center until 3:00, and had to go pick it up by 6. It is about 45 minutes away at that time of day. Traffic is terrible. Not a word from them all week, then they screwed up my happy hour time. I had made special arrangements to get Riley home instead of going to the Y and everything. It was still nice, but I was looking forward to a little more time with the girls. Frown  I got home in time to have pizza with the boys, and I got to open my birthday presents (a Keurig coffee machine and accessories -woo-hoo!) a day early  since Erick is working all day and late tonight. It is the university president's high-donor Christmas dinner out at the president's house. 

I think I will probably bake some cookies today, if I ever get out of my jammies!

Tomorrow Erick is making my favorite eggs Benedict for breakfast, and then we will go out for late lunch/happy hour at our favorite, but expensive place. They have a rewards program, and I we have been collecting points for several years now, so I have a $100 dining credit. I love that place. Can't wait for their macadamia-crusted deep-fried Brie....

At some point I need to go grocery shopping. And we are doing lots of laundry, as usual.
