Morning. Back to school, back to starting the thread. ;)
Laura that picture is pretty cool - it must have been nice fresh snow to make such a clear imprint!!
Lori, the bald eagle was pretty impressive - they nest along the Hudson and I've seen them at a distance before but never quite that close - he circled for quite a while.
Good morning! I got busy yesterday and only found time to read here but not reply.
Lori, hooray for the Kindle - and for it arriving so quickly!!! Glad it seems to have worked out with your debit card, too! I can't believe Alexis is turning 16! (That sounds random, but I didn't reply to your post on Sunday.)
Laura, LOL to not wanting to organize the family bowling league. Sounds like fun! My kids have still never been bowling. Someday we need to go! And that bird print in the snow was really cool, too!
Andrea, love the bald eagle pictures. What fun to see that on your daily walk! (Looks like beautiful weather, too!) I saw one a few weeks ago, but I was driving so I couldn't get a picture or even stop to get a better look.
Work got crazy yesterday. Plus, then kids got home, we had dance and cheer (and then I had to work more later). Whew! I hope today is more peaceful at work, although I do have a big enough to-do list!
Glad you survived your hectic Monday - is the rest of the week easier?
Lori, will they leave it even if you're not home?
I *think* things will be calmer today. Depends on if someone has some deadline I don't know about yet that requires me to program something for them. :)
Thanks for the GS link. Although, there's only room for a few badges. (Journey awards go above those. How do I know how much room to leave???) Do badges just spill onto the back then? I should have looked at someone else's sash last meeting - someone probably put the new badges on in a more timely manner.
Just went to the DMV and to ask about the property tax issue. Turns out the mortgage company forgot to add in our CDD fees and garbage, etc. - to the tune of $900-ish. So now I have to make up TWO years of that (last year was short, plus I have to pay it for this year). Which means my monthly mortgage bill is now $150 higher. UGH. I'm trying so hard to get our finances under control and this happens??? :(
In better news, I drove there, went to DMV and appraisals and was home in 45 minutes. I LOVE our government offices here - they're so lovely compared to other places I've been to!
Phoebe has a vest so she has quite a bit of space - do your girls have sashes instead?
