Morning. Happy MLK day.
Hilarie-Why don't the girls have school today? I'm sure you told us before-but I don't remember. Glad the microwave is in-they are always harder than they should be!
Lori-I forgot to comment on DB moving. :( Sorry. But-like you said at least you'll have an excuse to go visit. I've always wanted to go back to that part of the country-the history of the area is just amazing. Someday...
Laura, I'm the same as you - I didn't start flossing regularly until they came out with glide - I have a quite a few teeth I can't get the other stuff between without it shredding. I agree I can't believe our kids are turning 8!!!
Today is a teacher "planning" day or something like that. The older schools have report cards tomorrow, but the elementary sent them home last week. DH had today and tomorrow off, but they changed his schedule on Friday (did I mention that?). He officially now has Sundays and Mondays off every week (yay!), but they started it with two days' notice, so we ended up with no child care today. D'oh!
I'm the same with the tight teeth - and I use Glide, too! How funny!
Megan is going to a local art museum. I've never been, but I don't think it's huge. Jacksonville isn't known for "the arts", I don't think. :)
Laura, "yay" for being sore! Must have been a good workout! Hopefully you won't be too sore for too long!
Well, one call down. And I got a big "you need to get this done today" project. And another call at noon. Hopefully I can pull this all off...
Andrea, yay for a nice weekend! Seriously, Lori is colder than you?
Hilarie, are your girls still off school? I think taxes are high in our zip code, but part of the problem is there are so many subdivisions in the whole area (nine counties), you can buy a new construction house for the same price. That just doesn't help at all. Oh, yeah, aren't blue appliance lights weird?!
This is about as far as I've gotten. So much going on! Hope to catch up tomorrow!
Wendi, the part about new houses being about as much as the existing ones makes sense. It's actually part of why we didn't buy in the "new" neighborhood here (even though the houses were oh-so-pretty!). We figured if we had to sell in a couple of years, we wanted it to be easier to sell. Where we bought, the homes are older (late 90s - mid 2000's), so our home should sell just fine - whenever we're ready. Fingers crossed anyway... :)
Well, we all survived yesterday, with me working and the kids home. Whew. And now they're finally back at school!
Lori, you asked how cold it was here when I said the heat was on again. It's still low 60s during the day, but it was freezing overnight. So it's okay to have the heat on. :)
Work work work today. And a 6-mile run, if I can manage. I had to wait for it to warm up. 30s are just a little too chilly for me (although it would probably feel really good, once I got going). So maybe I'll go run on an early "lunch" break or something.
Hilarie-Hope you get lots of work done today & that the 6 mile run is good. I'm pretty sure that would kill me. :)
Lori-Is it warmer there today? Hope so.
We had a PTA meeting last night for the Sock Hop. The chairman asked everyone to call 3 companies to ask for donations for the auction. That will help me a ton. So about 15 places will get called by someone other than me! :) So-things are chugging along. Just a work day today & I have to bake the cupcakes for school tomorrow. Calla wants to help frost them tonight-so I'll try to do them at noon or something like that. My exercise this morning was pretty brutal & I'm just tired right now-hope my burst of energy comes back soon!
Hilarie, Good luck on the run today - will this be your first big run recently? At least it's not hot like last week.
