Happy Birthday Susan!!
Hope the day is everything you want it to be!

Marti - hope you had fun last night .... uh.... you know, scrapbooking!

Cristi - they were going to name the baby Steven after the grandfather who has passed away, but didn't like the female version Stephanie. So I suggested Stevie, like Stevie Nicks. The mom really likes that, but I'm not sure about the dad...

Angie - yes, you better get a ring before you go any further with the dentist young lady! LOL!! Poor Brandon! Just reading about it made me curl my toes under.

Zane's mom and her boyfriend and his 2 kids came for him and visited for awhile last night. Today I am attacking Mount Washmore and that's it. I am still worn out from yesterday, and don't care if I even get off the couch today.

Have a good one, ladies!
Jana

Talking

Wow, I am surprised to see that no one has posted today except Jana. Well, I know Susan is out enjoying her special day. And Marti is out scrapbooking

Jana~I love the name Steven and Stephanie, of course I am biased as I have a nephew Steven and niece Stefani. Her mother thought she would be unique with the spelling. I think Stevie is cute for a girl. Hope you are relaxing today. Sometimes I think we all need to have a lazy day-I know I do!!

Susan~a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to YOU today!!! Hope you are having a great celebration! And that Alex came through.

Angie~SAMS is like Costco, not sure if you guys have them in Canada. A big wherehouse type store where you can buy in bulk. They sell everything, groceries, jewelry, flowers, furniture... Sorry to hear about Brandon's toe, OUCH! It must be a very bad one if he has to go back to finish it. Poor guy, I hope this visit at least made it better.

I was supposed to be home doing laundry and cleaning but instead decided to go shopping this A.M. I was on a mission looking for this rubbermaid type shelf that fits beside the toilet to put extra paper, etc. in. I can't find one anywhere. I went to Target, looked in Wal-Mart while there yesterday. Went to Lines and Things, Bed, Bath and Beyond and gave up. I know they have them but where?? Anyway, ended up getting some small plants, and two rugs for the kitchen at Target. While at Linens and Things I thought since Hallmark is just across the way I may as well stock up on votive candles. That Hallmark is the only one I can find the votive candles in the Wedding scent. I bought some for our wedding almost five years ago and fell in love with the scent. Won't buy anything else now. But you can't always find them and when I do I stock up on the votives and the tea lights. Didn't need any tea lights though. Good thing I ran out of checks coz I was on a roll.

Now I have to get to work. I need to clean and finish laundry. I had a surprise (a surprise in that she will be dropping by, not that I received an email from her) email from my cousin a couple of nights ago and she is headed to Dallas this weekend. She will be coming through KS so is going to stop and spend the night tomorrow. We grew up together and spent A LOT of time together till we were teenagers when my Aunt transferred to New Mexico after a horrible divorce. While we have kept in touch over the years with letters, cards, emails I haven't seen her since I moved to KS which has been five years. I did make a visit to Houston 2 1/2 years ago while living in OK, and spent some time with her sister and mom, my cousin and Aunt. Had planned on visiting them in CO but now she is headed back to Dallas to find a job. Anyway, I need to get the house cleaned, want it to look decent for company ya know.

Well, ladies hope ALL is having a fantastic Thursday. See ya later

Went to the floral shop and the lady went into the glass refrigerator and picked up this HUGE bundle of flowers. I thought "oh, please........not them...waaaaay too much".
She brought them out though.

Good evening~

Pretty quiet around here today.

Susan~I am sooooo glad Alex came through-I KNEW he would! He sounded like a man of his word and he definitely sounds like a keeper. Hey, when do you guys meet in person?? Can't remember?? I am glad you are having a wonderful day also, but sorry about the pms. That cake on the card did look good didn't it?

Well, got most of my cleaning done-just need to vacuum tomorrow morning. Guess where I found a sailboat today? I forgot to mention it earlier. I found some nautical stuff at Hallmark. Never thought about them having anything like that. It was between the seagulls, which were quite big and the sailboat-just thought the sailboat would look better on the top of that shelf. And the best part-it was only $9. I am still looking for some nautical stuff. I did find some online but thought I would look in the stores first. Found a kleenex holder, a rug, and a swag that I plan on getting online. JC Penneys has some pictures I think I am going to get. I was undecided when I saw them. Just hope they are still there. Anyway, I am babbling. Take care ladies and see ya tomorrow.

cheques? what you need is a debit card...lol that way you never have to worry about running out of cheques...only money.

I am so glad Alex came throu for you Susan..you deserve flowers on your birthday...well any day of the year. But you should get some on your birthday.


The opening night of Odd Couple (female version) went well. I am heading for bed now,,,I wiped out!...lol
night all

Default Hiya ladies!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful evening...


HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSAN!!! You know we are all with you in spirit -- hope you had a wonderful day. Getting flowers is absolutely fantastic -- from your girls AND your sweetie! How nice

Angie -- ow ow ow on Brandon's toe! I cringed reading that. Hope he's feeling better soon. How long was it bothering him before he finally told you? When my middle son was about 5 he picked up a washer in the church parking lot and put it on his finger (don't ask me why). He didn't tell us until a few hours after church, and by then his finger was swollen and kind of purple. We tried stopping by the fire station because someone told us they have a ring cutter, but they couldn't get it under the washer to cut it. We ended up at the emergency room, and they were talking about knocking him out and dislocating his finger to get it off!!! Fortunately, a smart nurse thought to wrap his finger very tightly in string to counteract the swelling, dumped about a quart of mineral oil on his hand, and managed to work it off his finger. Yay for smart nurses!

Marti, hoping you and James are having a lovely honeymoon

Cristi -- stop, you are making me want to shop! I already spent a bit today...books and went to Hard Rock Cafe for dinner. I had a big salad for dinner, but drank a Hurricane, so I don't feel too virtuous. Ah well, tomorrow is another day...at least we didn't order dessert.

OK, gotta get a shower and off to bed. See y'all soon...

Katie

Good morning Ladies! TGIF!!

Cristi - well, they named the baby Kacey. (Didya hear that, Kayecee?) She sure is pretty. There is a huge Sam's in Evansville, so be sure and bring your card in August. I don't belong, but I go with my sister once in awhile who does belong. I buy Yankee candles at Hallmark, but haven't smelled the Wedding scent. Now I will.... One of my faves is Home Sweet Home scent. Yay for finding the sailboat.

Susan - bet your birthday was lots of fun. I was hoping Alex would come through for you! Hope your celebration was great. I can't believe I forgot to send you a snail mail card!!!!! My bad!!!!! I was concentrating so hard to get Marti's wedding card sent, I guess I spaced it. I'll send you two next year, ok?

Angie - wish I coulda been there for the opening of your play. I bet it's a hoot. Katie is stage manager for at least one play they are doing at school. She asked for that position although she has no clue what to do. But the drama teacher is supposed to teach her... that's what it's all about in high school, I guess. I have a debit card but forget to use it! Monday when I was shopping in Evansville w/dsil, the guy at Journeys said they don't take checks. So I was real glad I had the card.

Remember my friend who had a hysterectomy last week? She is doing fine and we are going out to lunch today. It is supposed to be in the 70's again and I'm loving that! Mary is going to clean the house tomorrow for $$ so I don't have to worry about cleaning. Like I was worried about that, lol.

Better run,
Jana

Talking Morning Y'all!

Gee! I think I missed posting yesterday even though I quickly scanned through yesterday morning. I decided to ride with Tim to take the kids to school so I didn't have time to do much more than that. Hmmmm.... wonder where Marti is? It's not like her to stay away. She must be very busy. K- Shanna- get your butt over here and report- have they taken down the Do Not Disturb sign yet? LOL

I can't remember what was on #38 so I'll just start from here.

Jana- Ooooooweeeee..... you had a house full didn't you? Is Mount Washmore dead yet? Mine is getting to where it rivals Mount Everest this week. I'm so drained once I get in from jury duty. Hopefully, today is the last day. Dang, I don't get to flirt with the judge again.

Cristi- Sounds like you had a great time shopping. I love redecorating and buying new stuff. It's so much fun to do. I found a bunch of nautical stuff at TJ Maxx and Cato's within the last few weeks. You might try there if you have any of those close. There is also a website www.abcdistributing.com that I use to order some stuff and I have seen a lot of nautical things. You sign up online (you have to own a business but I don't think they really check it cuz I know a couple of people who just made up names ) and then they send you a catalog but you can order online. My puter is so slow that I just usually look through their catalogs. They give you a credit limit of like $100 or so to start out. You do have to pay shipping though and I haunt Dollar General and Fred's- sometimes you can find their products there. But they have a lot of stuff that I haven't seen either.

Susan- Well, young lady. How does 40 feel? I'm gonna be there in a little over 3 years so give me a heads up. I think I'm gonna miss being in my flirties.... ooops..... meant thirties! I'm glad Alex sent you such a beautiful bunch of flowers. Question: All of our florists around here deliver. Do they not do that everywhere? Or is it just because our communities are so small that they have an easy time finding anyone that they deliver to? Just curious. That just kinda hit me cuz around here when you call to order something they automatically ask "Where do you want that delivered to?"

Angie- You French type people- us Americans spell it checks and I notice y'all are cheques. Love it. We're debating about whether to visit Louisiana or Florida this year. (I know the kids will vote for Florida..... duh... Disney!) I would love to go to Louisiana though. A few years ago, I had a student who lived over in the field behind us. He is cajun and I loved to hear their Frenchy accent! Anyway, one day he comes in and says "Miss Mary..... my momma wanna know if you bring yo family fo dinner. We got dem crawfish to cook and dey good." I was floored. I had been teaching about 10 years and had never been invited to a student's house before. (Don't really know of any other teachers who have either unless they were friends with the family previously.) Anyway, we all became friends and they moved back to Louisiana about 2 years ago. Rod (the dad) keeps telling us to come down and he'll take us on an airboat and tour the swamps. Mom loves to visit graveyards so I know she would be fascinated by the ones in New Orleans and I am craving Chicory coffee, but I can't find it anywhere around here. Tim and I have talked and if his work goes well for the next few months, we may go to both places. I'm glad opening night went so well. I would love to see the female version. Hope Brandon's toe is better- poor baby. Typical male for you though- don't wanna see the doctor until something is about to fall off!

Katie- OMG I'm so glad you had that nurse there. Kids can do the strangest things sometimes. Sometimes I feel like I need to give mine a head to toe check every 5 minutes to make sure they haven't stuck a cheerio up their nose or something.

Hey to everyone else who hasn't posted on this thread!

I think I have sufficiently made up for not posting yesterday. Gotta go flirt with the judge and bailiff one more time. Have a good day!

Jana- Awwwwww..... I'm so flattered they named the baby after me! Hear that girls? Anyone around here gets preggers with a girl, I expect to be honored in a similar fashion! Seriously, how did they come up with that name?

ya sure Kaycee, Im gonna go get preggers so I can name the baby after you...hubby's family don't make girls...so that means we will have to keep trying till a girl comes along,,,in that time I can get my own hockey and baseball team going. But for you anything.... My vocal coach has a dog named KC shes real cute....
Monte and I are talking about taking the boys to DisneyWorld this year...Im cool with that...lol
His toe looks so gross....hes gonna be a very unhappy boy in a couple of weeks when he has to wear the inserts plus getting the ingrown out...ewwwwwwwww
well off to work I go
lator gator
Angie

Jana, tell Katie that SM is not hard,,,you sit and take notes of where the actors are on the stage. You make sure everyone is there and accountable, ,,, wait actually SM is hard...lol The Director directs,,,and the SM does everything else...geesh no wonder Im so tired! When the play is on stage you are the one in charge,,,calling the Qs...eg: lights and sound and actors going on.

Good Morning,

You don't need to send me 2 birthday cards next year, Jana!!!! LOL.....You all have been very sweet here at JL's.

VERY happy that your friend is well, how about your SIL???

I will give you a heads up on how 40 feels, Kayecee if you tell me what 37 is like........I am too old to remember....lol.
You just feel old and that you are headed down hill.....no need to fight gravity anymore....lol
Kidding.......

40 is a wonderful age when you ((or I , at least)) feel comfortable in who you are to pursue your dreams instead of looking for others approval. It has taken me this long to feel that..........

Also, Alex and I have only *talked* for a month now.I gave him 3 floral shops in my area and he picked one.He never asked for my address , I think mainly because he wants me to feel comfortable. I appreciate that,also........I head out early in the AM, and am rarely home for a flower delivery........lol.
So, he is a sweet man. He is headed 170 miles southwest to see his children this weekend, staying over at his brothers.
Umm,thinking we are meeting after he gets back from California on the 10th....so the following weekend from that time.

Cristi- you are buying things for your bathroom?? I know.........I am slow...lol

I was reading Dr Phil last night and got up to turn the floral bouquet around and noticed another SUNFLOWER!!!!! Yahooooo, thrilled my heart.Just my fave flower, think they are kindof cool.......

Hey, Angie What are you doing in The Odd Couple?? Hope you and Monte have a good weekend.

Best get- kiddies want me..........

Good "pre" afternoon ladies--

Yesterday James and I went to the coast. First we headed down to where the company he works for is at and picked up his paycheck. I had no idea how far it was!! (an hour 1/2 drive!)

We didn't go to the beach because it was windy and raining, so we went to a casino instead.....should have gone to the beach!! We spent way too much and left without anything!!! But we had fun.

Today we are tinkering around home. Have to go and get an oil change in our truck.....may roam the mall.

Tomorrow we are heading up to Portland. Yep, Susan, we'll be up there. I will yell "hello" to you while we're there!! Shanna and I have talked about how we need to go up together and give you a heads up and we could all meet. We'll do that this summer!

Just wanted to pop in before my day gets started. (yeah....I slept in today!)

You all take care and if I get a chance I will pop in again tonight.

Marti

Morning Marti,

Just tell me where you are in Portland and I will be there.........promise not to take up too much of your time....lol. Sure in the sumertime when it is nicer out.

Teasing, sure you and James have more important things to do. I think it will be nice, I know Sunday will be for sure.

I am tired today, need to take a nap before I go for my walk.

Another thing about 40...... Kayecee.......you are allowed naps without feeling too guilty...lol...also, my back is killing me with this darn pms....

Ok- going to lay down and get some zzzzzzzzz's

Hi ladies,

Kayecee - are they just about finishing picking the jury? Are you on it?

Angie - Katie's play is Amy Goes Army. Sounds sorta like Private Benjamin to me.

Susan - our town delivers flowers, but not out here in the boonies. Also no pizza delivery.

Marti - hey, girl! So you're taking a break from scrapbooking, huh? Wow, the coast, a casino and the mall. Sounds like a lot of fun! When Neal and I went to San Diego I got to wade around in the Pacific and loved it! It was too cold to swim but the view is fantastic. Glad you two are relaxing and having fun.

Cristi - where are you, woman?? Out buying boats and other nautical stuff?

Oh you guys will be so proud of me! I went for lunch with my friend and we went to this little tea room downtown. Guess what? They actually had a WW Winning Points section on the menu! I've been to this place before, but this is new. So I had 1/2 of a warm pita, w/turkey and lettuce with an array of fruit. Yum! The atmosphere in there is so feminine and nice. Anyway, I had a great time with my friend and stayed OP, too.

Better go,
Jana
