  1. My dd moved to her new place in NC with our outdoor cat. DD and cat are happy. The cat has transitioned to being indoors with not problems. :)

      that's great! so glad it's working out & she's got her buddy from home with her :)


  2. Christmas Eve, you know what that means! A new Doctor Who tomorrow. :D

  3. In the mood to purge stuff. I may have emptied another bookshelf.Filled up 3 cloth bags so far.

  4. I've been brushing up on accounting and finance all day.The more I read the less I feel I know.

  5. I HATE CARPET.Spent the last 2 days ripping up the carpet in my entrance area.What a mess.

  6. Long and bad day. I backed out of a driveway into a parked car.

    1. PollyOR


      Blech! What a sick feeling.

      Oh man! Sometimes our neighbor parks right across from our driveway, and I worry so much about doing that!

      Yeah, it's not a good place to park. And the police officer said the insurance may but some of the responsibility on her, since it's illegal to park across from a driveway. While I think it was bad to do that, it was my fault for hitting her parked car.

  7. PSA:if you buy green cury paste from an Asian food market, it will be MUCH spicer than the stuff sold at the grocery store or TJ's

      My sympathies! :)

      Use a lot of coconut milk in the curry to bring down the spiciness.

    4. Arcadia


      Add lots of coconut milk. If not soy milk works too.

  8. make that a double. Yes, it's been that kind of day.....

      Amen. A funeral this morning & a visitation tonight. I feel like a wrung out dishrag. Cheers.

  9. Spent the afternoon worried about my college dd. She spent the afternoon at the ER, making sure she didn't have appendicitis. She did not.

  10. floor guy called and cancelled, again. I beginning to think my bedroom floor will never be done. I'm tired of my stuff all over the house.

    1. Critterfixer


      I know how frustrating that is!

  11. A wreck shutting down the highway making my dd's 1 hr commute a 2 hr one. I hate rural living.

    1. TammyinTN


      Sounds like most days in NoVA.


    2. gingersmom


      Sounds like a normal day in New Jersy

  12. It is time for a glass of wine and chocolate. What a day, and week.

      Now I ordered one on Amazon. We put down a bunch of traps and bait, but I'm thinking with rats, it's going to be a long battle.

  14. My room is all painted! It cost $700 to have the room mudded, but it looks amazing. I'll post pictures after the floor is done!

  15. The wallpaper is all off! It took apx 18 hrs. I will clean the walls tomorrow, then someone is coming to plaster and spackle before I paint.

  16. Just spent the last hour changing numerous passwords. It's times like this I want to go off the grid.

    1. Just Another Jen

      Just Another Jen

      That is on my list of things to do this afternoon. Grrr

      I hear ya.

  17. My poor dd. We are working through Jane Eyre, which is my favorite novel ever (but not hers!). I'm even blasting the music from the broadway musical. :)

      I liked the last movie version, with Mia Wasikowska. It did a decent job of capturing the feeling of the novel.

      Hey Kim,

      Are you using any resources for your discussion? We're doing this book next. This is my all-time favorite book, too, and I don't want to ruin it for dd. SWB has suggested not making kids dissect their favorite books and I feel this way about Jane Eyre for me. I don't want to analyze it...I just want to savor it's loveliness again (sigh).

  18. I just let ds11 put Nutella in his oatmeal. What have I done??! I've never be able to keep Nutella in stock.

  19. Just got all of my Christmas cards mailed!

  20. My ds14 and I just had a major communication fail. I know it won't be the last, but right now I want to scream and give him a "Gibb's" head smack.

  21. Taking my dd to the ACT.

      Good luck to her!

      Yay DD. Rock it!

  22. It's one of those mornings where I feel like the camel whose back is going to break. Some days......

  23. I hate wall to wall carpet. I think it should be banned. Only hardwood, tile, or laminate should be allowed. That is all.

    1. quark


      Nodding head vigorously. We are hoping to switch to laminate soon.

    2. houseofkids&pets


      We want to switch to all hardwoods due to pets, not allergies. Carpets absorb too many odors and are harder to keep clean.

      Don't miss carpets AT ALL!

  24. Cr*p! the boys have lice.

    1. Quill


      Oh, no!!! That is not any fun at all.
