Good morning ladies.  I have a bit of stuff to do today.  We have a report we are working to get out the door including a meeting to review it this afternoon.  I have a few errands I will probably run at lunch.  DH hadn't made it back home yet this morning, he should make it into town mid-morning.  I have a chiropractor appt. after work, I am not 100% positive I'm make it, we'll see.  Emma had a bad week at school last week, I worked with her this weekend quite a bit on some tools and strategies, so we'll see how today goes.  Crossing my fingers... 

I am not 100% sure what we are having for dinner yet, either chicken pockets or chicken quesadillos most likely.

Have a great day!

My weekend was relaxing.  I only did about half of what I had planned, but that is okay.   I made a large dent in the garage of weirdly packed boxes and laundry and ironing.   DH and DS had an okay time in AZ.  I wish the ILs would make the effort.  MIL was happy that Zeph was visiting, but then expected him to do boring stuff (which he did with a good attitude) but then she and FIL don't participate in the stuff Zeph is interested in.  While they could not have climbed the mountain, they could have joined DH and Z at the museum.  I don't know how to fix it.  He had a great time on their mountain hike and I am eager to see pictures.

This morning I am taking Buffy to the dog sitters for the day.  I'm going to the mall and then our downtown area for some more shopping.  Then meeting DH and DS at the library for Zeph's literature group.  They are coming straight from the airport.  Tonight is volleyball.  One of us is taking to volleyball while the other picks up the dog.  Dinner will be out and on the go.

I hear you with the IL thing. 

We spent 5 days with the IL in August.  Most of the time we just sat around the IL's house.  Dh played with his computer.  The kids played with their iPods and phones.  Yipee.  The same stuff they do around here. 

Il's don't want to do anything.  Mil tries.

Then they complain they never see us. 

I understand they're older.  I understand it's hard for FIL to get around.  But when we do try to do something that they might participate in- all FIL does is complain.  Then he leaves and goes home.  SIGH.

I keep telling them the kids are older.  There's going to come a point where the girls aren't going to be able to go b/c they have jobs and such. 

Sorry- I'll get off my soapbox.  It's kind of a pet peeve of mine..........

Yes that's exactly it. MIL suggested a walking path to DH for them to hike on after the museum that she walks during the week. She didn't go with becasue it wasn't a walking day- URGH! It was a place to stroll not to hike but it was in an et anture area and she could have gone with. I know they've been to the plane museum before but couldn't they have gone again and shared it with him? It's doubly hard because my parents are so active and interested in his life and when they're not, they fake it really well. They're happy he wants to spend time with them.

Hi everyone, hope your week has gotten off to a god start.  The kids and I are off today for Veterans Day. Kayleigh is mostly doing homework/studying.  I took Ian to the orthodontist, to Kohls and out for gelato.  Soon I'm heading out to get my car serviced.  I'll wait there, it'll be good reading time. WHen I get home, I have a few chores to do, and hope to exercise and make a couple of phone calls and pay some bills.

Looking forward to DWTS later.

                                                     Mindy

I am behind again.  I still can't use my ipad.  It takes me to a weird page when I try posting.  Oh well.  Never really liked using it for iVillage anyway.  Today the kids were off school for Veterens Day.  We just had a lazy day, did a little bit of cleaning.  Tim and I dropped my car off at the mechanic and they never called to let us know what needs to be done.  They know we'd like to drive it to Cincinnati for Thanksgiving.  Hopefully we will hear something tomorrow morning.  I have a rental car reserved for us but I'd like to cancel it.  It's either pay for a rental and fix my car or fix my car so we can drive it to Ohio and drop the rental.  No matter what, my car needs repairs. It was making an awful squalling noise.  So we stayed home all day.  Kids did laundry too today.  Natalie and I made Matthew's birthday cake.  I plan to freeze it until Friday evening when I put it together.  It's so good.  Had extra batter so I made some cupcakes for desert tonight and they were awesome.  Dinner was leftovers and they were pretty good.  Normally they aren't that great.  LOL  Normal day tomorrow.

If you need help with your ipad Chelle, let me know. I am using mine just fine again to access the boards. It took a bit of fiddling with at first, but once I got it all set, I was good to go.

Thanks Tracy. No big deal. I was never able to use it easily so I am just going to let it be.
