Good morning ladies!  Its Election day, if you haven't voted yet, no matter who you're voting for or what you stand for, make sure to get out there and vote.  the system doesn't work if people don't use it!  What else is on your agenda for today?

Good morning ladies!  I gave Jordyn a coupon and told her to go pick out coffee this weekend, she picked out Tiramisu, and I really don't care for it...  I'll leave it for her and go back to making my pot of french vanilla or hazelnut in the mornings.  I got up at a decent time this morning and made the girls and I omelettes for breakfast.  Packed up my lunch and snacks, so hopefully it'll be a good day.  I have a few small projects to work on at work, and an few errands to run at lunch time.  Tonight, I need to vote on the way home, luckily its right near Emma's school, so hopefully I can get in and out relatively smoothly.  Dinner is cashew chicken and chicken fried rice.

Have a great day!

I am in angry with DH.  I don't have the words to express how angry or why I'm angry, but I'm working on it.  He gets home late afternoon todY from a trip and then he and Zeph are off to a 3D lecture on the Mars rovers- can you get more nredy than the combo of those 2 things? He and I wont have time to argue until tomorrow which is pretty busy for both of us.  Maybe we can resolve this on Thursday.

I've been working on housework and grading some math and geography papers.  Zeph has been busy with schoolwork.  He's taking a break right now.  I'm hoping to register him for the national history bee and the geogrpahy bee this afternoon.  I finally found bedding for his room and ordered that.

I'm glad I voted early.   A local email list has people checking in and saying the waits at polling places have been awful.  Glad people are voting, just hope its for the right cantidate:)

I'm off to make beef with broccoli and brown rice for lunch.

So jealous of everyone that was able to vote early. 

It took dh an hour this morning- and there was drama in the line.  Something about people cutting in/out and it happened right in front of my neighbors and dh.  I went 2 hours later and it took me an hour and a half to get done.  At least it was fun- the people waiting were really nice.  And I saw a whole bunch of people from the neighborhood/church. 

The house appraiser has come and gone.  Hopefully things go well and we can get the house refinanced. 

Going to do a few errands with Becca.  Baking a chicken for dinner. 

Wanted to post a snarky reply to my BIL.  He didn't like the way Kristen voted and there was a heated argument going on Kristen's facebook wall.  I've glanced at it some.  At the moment Becca told the guy who's posted the most (some Freshman that is in the Anime club with Kristen- she swears she doesn't like him but he posts all over her wall) that he's a guy version of her.  I think I need to stop looking at facebook.

LOL! It amazes me how people get about elections. DH has asked me several times over the last 2 weeks who I am voting for, apparently he doesn't believe me when I tell him. he's just weird sometimes... Cheryl, what minimum GPA does Kristen have to keep to keep her scholarship each year? Jordyn got her letter yesterday with the academic scholarship, it'll definitely go a ways to help, but we still need to see the entire package before we can make any decisions. And she still needs to apply to the other schools she wants to apply to. I know she's set on her top school, but I'd really like to get the other apps in soon also...

The 2 academic scholarships she has to keep a 2.7.  I can't remember if there's a GPA requirement for the music one- or if she just has to play in orchestra to keep that one.

Hi everyone, happy Tuesday. It has felt like a long day.  I had to drop my car off this morning, it ended up needing an accelerator and tire repair. Work was very draining today.  After work, a friend took me to pick up my car and then I voted.

Kayleigh had a regular school day and then submitted her college applications. The waiting game begins. Ian had a regular school day and then Dh took him for a haircut, school picture retakes are tomorrow.

Tonight, I'm having kashe and acorn squash, the rest of the fam is having pot pies. Then I'll watch some tv, check in on the election returns, do a little of this and that. I'm craving a glass of wine but i do not have any.
