Morning. Back to school, back to starting the thread. ;)
Hilarie, Yay to the new ipad. My parents and I chipped in together and got one for my brother for Christmas. Of course two days before Christmas he went out and got one for his wife!!!! So now they have two!!! Wow to selling so many cookies. I'm not sure when they sell cookies around here - Phoebe has her first meeting since before Christmas this afternoon so maybe we'll find out something?
Lori, I never seem to stay logged in either, and it doesn't bring me to the last post. I haven't tried IE though. I saw Les Mis years ago on Broadway and loved it - I'd like to get the chance to see it at the movies, I'll probably wait until video though!!
Laura, Poor Lacey thinking she was lost - do you think part of it was because she was tired after a day of skiing?
Wendi, Good luck going back to school/work!!
Lori, are you sure you have to have a credit card for Amazon Prime? I have Amazon linked to my debit card (always have) and I had the 30-day trial for Prime. I know you can also put gift cards on there, instead of having it linked to a credit card - just link to that.
Andrea, nice work on getting stuff put away and organized this weekend! We didn't deal with any indoor decorations and I just unplugged the lights outside. Our Christmas tree is making me sad now.
Andrea, we only have like one bag of chips (max) at a time, so we don't really organize. We do put it on the top shelf of our pantry, though, to keep it less accessible!
Plenty to do today - running this morning (as soon as I can get myself moving), finish that work project (I told them "by noon"), start more work projects. Plus dance and cheer tonight after school. Oh - and DH is finally bringing home our new dishwasher and microwave after work today. He decided to check if they were in yet last week, and they had just been sitting there and no one had even called! Weird. Too bad he didn't bring them home before his 4-day weekend! Because now he works 7 days straight!
Yay to the new appliances!! Hopefully they won't sit in the garage too long!
Andrea-Glad you got some alone time this weekend & got everything done. Sounds like a great weekend. As for bags of chips & such I usually put them in my "bread basket" that sits on the counter. It has always been just a little square basket-but I got a new little bag for it when I went to that bag party a few weeks ago. I LOVE my new bag. You should check out http://www.thirtyonegifts.com/ and if you don't know anyone who sells it I can talk to my friend who does & see if you can order from her if you find anything you love. Mine is called a utility bin-I think it was the medium sized one. But there are tons of things there that might work.
Lori-Hope you get your new toy soon! :)
Hilarie-Ugh to no one calling you-they probably thought that since DH worked there that he'd see them. Hope it doesn't take too long to get them in. I can't imagine working 7 days straight either-poor guy.
All is going well here this morning. We had a blast bowling with the neighbors last night. It really was so much fun. I wish we had more friends to do things like that with. These guys are great-but they have so much family around that they are busy all the time with family things it seems. I said it would be fun to set up a school family bowling league. I would suggest it-but then I'd have to organize it. So I'll just keep that to myself. :)
Just got back from my walk - and here's a picture of what I saw - unfortunately I only had my phone so they aren't the greatest quality!!
Lori-Yeah for the new toy! :) I'm sure you'll love it.
Andrea-That's very cool! We see them occasionally around here too-but I rarely have a camera with me then either. (And my phone is so old & miserable I can't get photos off it...)
Here's cool bird picture from skiing on New Year's Day. Not sure what bird made them-but we passed over the print as we were on the chair lift. I thought it was terribly cool. I kind of wonder if it could be from 2 birds either fighting or mating...
I think it's attached-this new method of doing things is not my favorite!!!
