Whew! Bif day off-island! But we got lots done... grocery shopping, other errands and fabric for my office/craft room curtains and table skirt! So cute and I'm excited about getting it all made up.

Dh is soooo funny! Here we are, trying not to buy "stuff" that we don't need. He's walking through JoAnns, showing me all the great deals and "wouldn't that make it easier for you to.....?" I could have walked out of there with a $40 package of threads, but I didn't take him up on it. I did let him buy me two cute little "totes" that are actually sets of three little clear boxes that stack on each other, so I can organize crafts to take along when going to craft days, etc.

He also kept showing me scrapbooking materials and paper organizers, paper, etc. while we were at Tuesday Morning. I could have had an extra $100 worth of stuff, but I honestly don't need any more. I am NOT used to this! I'm used to showing him something and explaining to him why I need it. Maybe half the time he says "go ahead and buy it" and maybe the other half of the time he'll ask if I really need it. Sometimes I do... sometimes I think about it and realize I don't need it. But I'm not used to him offering to get me all this stuff. Kinda sweet!

We've got the furnace people coming to clean vents and ducts out tomorrow, so I need to be up, dressed and "scarce" early in the morning. Ugh! Just when I thought we were done with having men all over the house... But maybe this will help us not have so much dust in the house.

Tomorrow will be more cleaning and organizing in the office.

Heading to bed...

The way you've described having men crawling all over the house it reminded me of cockroaches, for some reason. Not a pretty sight, let me tell you!

Cockroaches with pants riding too low on their bums... Just kidding... just a lack of privacy and a disruption of our schedules.

Yeah, Tuesday Mornings are notorious for setting up in out-of-the-way places. The first one I found was in the basement of an old Fred Meyer shopping center in Portland that was nowhere near our house. Then, after getting all excited about making the trip down there, I'd arrive and find out they weren't even open!

Yup... I woke up too early, planned to go back to bed but got on the 'puter and... well, you know! So now I'm thinking I'll get back up to my office and get to work on the chaos that is still up there.

And YOU just take it easy today! You can always work on my office.... er.... your stuff.... after you've recuperated from your big day yesterday.

Thank you for the lovely photo. One of the last things his wife told him was to "go find the fastest horse you can find and go for a ride. Then run and run and run until you can't run anymore." He's been in a wheelchair for at least 20 years, I think. He had M.S. No wheelchairs in heaven!

I am SO tired! I haven't had more than 5 hours of sleep a night for the last 4 or 5 days. I go to bed at a fairly decent time (for me, anyway) but wake up too early and can't get back to sleep. Last night, er... this morning... I didn't get to bed until 3:30 because I was trying to finish making 50 Valentines for our soldiers. I didn't want to wake up today and still have some left to do.

So I planned to sleep in, and dh would have let me. But early this morning, when he was outside, the phone rang and woke me up. It was American Express telling us our card had been used fraudulently. I wasn't even sure it was a legitimate call, so I had to call them back before I gave them any information. Turns out, it was for real and someone in England had tried to use our card on the internet.

Then more phone calls and I am still trying to get back to bed. I don't care if I end up sleeping until late afternoon... I NEED my sleep and have gone without it for too long. If I don't sleep now, I'll be getting sick. So G'night.... or G' Day! zzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZ

One of the times that our DS#3 was in Thailand, someone managed to get his debit card number. They took over $2000 from his account, including a large charitable donation to some organization. The bank backed him up, and eventually he got his money back; but what a pain! It really ticks me off that some people are too lazy to work honestly for their money and think they need to steal money from someone who HAS worked for it.

So... we're happy w/ AmEx-- they called our home #, cell # AND sent us an e-mail!

Okay, so I'm back up to work in my office... ttyl

Here I is...

A big day... took off with a friend this morning looking for a quilter's group that was staying in a cabin on the island (they saw us at the restaurant last night, recognized my friend as a fellow Quilter's Guild member and invited us over for today) but we couldn't find the place. Then spent a good part of the day at a volatile meeting for our country club/home owner's association, came home and made envelopes for all those valentine's for the soldiers. (I have 7 left to make.) I have a low carb pizza, just out of the oven and waiting for toppings, so I'm gonna run. Maybe BBL...

Tuesday Morning is a discount place... they get a lot of high end stuff from the nicer department stores and clear out the stuff at nice prices. Kinda like Ross, maybe like Marshall's (although I've never been there) but higher end stuff usually. Like, instead of going to Ross and paying $19 for a $69 set of sheets, you can go to Tuesday Morning and pay $69- $100 or more for a $400 sheet set. They have dishes, cookware, bedding and linens, furniture, yard decor, Christmas stuff, small appliances, collectibles, etc. I once bought a Thomas Kincade painting for $199 that had been marked $999 before.

On this trip, we bought a $39 shower curtain for $5. The package had been torn and the curtain had some price tag sticky residue on it. It had been marked $10 but the manager knocked it down to $5 when she saw the sticky stuff. It came right out in the wash, and looks lovely in our master bathroom!

We also bought those 12" x 12" scrapbooking page storage things, but I don't remember what we paid. Oops... the pizza still needs my attention!
