Saturday November 22

Good Morning. The sun is shining and the wind isn't blowing. It's still chilly, but looks like a beautiful day.
My daughter and her boyfriend just surprised me by showing up to take the kids downtown to the Christmas parade. That will be nice for them (and a break from kids for us he he)
I plan on trying to take the van to the grocery store today, it's only 4 blocks away. I'm getting out the recipes that I've printed that I want to try and making my grocery list.

I spent yesterday dreaming of what a day would be like if I'm not working anymore at all. I spent a lot of time upstairs instead of down here on the computer. I vacuumed the living room, swept the kitchen. I washed some dishes (I've not washed dishes at all since moving in with my mom, so about time I start doing my fair share there). I spent a few hours putting supper together. I will share the recipe for the meatballs I made as I posted it to gather.

I got my camera back from my son...batteries are about gone, but I got the good pic of the hair scrunchies and got a pair up on blujay. I also worked on putting some things together for others for the Christmas Wishlist group on gather.

And speaking of gather, here is the recipe I made yesterday and shared on gather last night. Crispy German Meatballs Recipe

I guess that is all for today. Have a great Saturday!

Friday November 21

Thank God It's Friday!
I'm supposed to be at work right now for the all staff meeting...would rather be here, so here I am. What will they do? Fire Me?
My daughter didn't show up to take Allen to school. I was going to try to take the van but my mom said no way with it being only 15ยบ outside and only water in the radiator. The van being down wouldn't bother me so much if it didn't happen right with cold weather setting in. He went late, getting a ride with one of my mom's friends. Something sure has to change in that area!

It ended up that the dentist was sick yesterday so they had to reschedule Jasmine's appt. Took care of the no ride problem there for awhile longer.

I worked on a few things here and there yesterday. I did complete 2 washcloths while Heather was in her math tutoring and got those listed on blujay. I'm working on making some bookmarks and little things to go out to some in the Christmas wishlist group on gather.
I need for my son to get my camera back to me so I can get some other things done with it.
I hope today to really catch up on my gmail. I will also reach $50 cashout with gather today.

Everything is on my vision board and I need to keep my visions straight and move forward with them!

Until tomorrow, have a blessed Friday,

Thursday November 20

Good Morning. bbrrrrr after a few days ofa high of around 70, today it's only going to be a high of 40 and it's windy outside which makes it much worse.

I am happy to announce that the owner of homeschoolbuy did indeed get the glitch figured out. Now, if I can just keep getting bids, I will be a very happy camper! If you would like you can check out the squidoo lens that I made on the site. HomeSchoolBuy

Jasmine has a dentist appt this afternoon. I hope we can find a ride. I maybe should have cancelled it when they called to verify, not knowing about a ride, but she needs those fillings put in.

Today is the Great American Smoke out....I was really going to do it. I got out my package of Commit gum I had gotten free online....but then I couldn't do it, just had to go out in the cold and have a real cigarette. I will be taking the package to work with me though. With feeding 24 extra people today at work I won't have time to take a little break.

No other real news for today :) Have a nice day and stay warm!

Wednesday November 19

Good Morning.
My daughter didn't show up to take Allen to school. I took the van, which was not smart. I put water in it before leaving, which all of it was out by the time I got back home....or well, the rest of it spewed out in to the driveway. The whole motor is covered with anti-freeze.
No one picked me up from work yesterday so I ended up walking home. I don't have a ride to work tomorrow so I do plan on taking the van as the high is only 40! Just say a prayer that I make it there and back.
Regardless of the money, I think it's time for me to put in my 2 week notice to quit. I'm not going to make enough to get another vehicle anyway and I can't expect someone to take me and pick me up each day....and they aren't reliable to do so anyway. I will not walk to work in winter! That measly $8.56 an hour I get is just not worth it and I only work 3 hours a day, 4 days a week on a full Headstart week.

I've been working daily on crafts and trying to list something each day that I can. I have enough supplies on hand right now to do several crafts too.
I am waiting on a reply back from the owner of homeschoolbuy to see if he is going to truly fix the glitch in the auctions. If he doesn't soon then I am moving all those books over to blujay as well.

I'm paying attention and doing more of the survey sites. And, I did get in on the Ghiradelli chocolate with shespeaks!!

I did decide for sure to cancel my paid membership with winster. Since I can't earn enough points in a month to cover the $5 then I just can't do it. It will take some pressure off anyway and free up time. I can play as a free player when I have the extra time in the day and still eventually earn enough points.

I've been pretty much keeping up with cutting and sorting my coupons. This will help a lot on saving money.

I guess I will quit going on for today, only an hour left now before I have to get off to work. I will be safe today and walk since the weather is decent.

Have the best day that you can!

Tuesday November 18

Good Morning.
Listening to the radio it says today high is 56. Yesterday was about the same, and it wasn't bad outside because there was little wind.
Allen has a dentist appt. this morning, and just in time that my daughter can drop me off at work on the way to take him. After I get off Heather has an appt at the Health Dept. I'm sure hoping my daughter will take her there too. I'm not sure what we are doing about my mom's dr. appt this afternoon. Bowling isn't a problem as Steve picks me up for that each week.

I scanned 2 of the hair scrunchies that I have made and posted to gather. The problem is that for some reason my scanner shows them some ugly brown color over the pretty red that they are. I got a lot of nice comments on them. Hair Scrunchies That I Made

Homeschoolbuy still has the glitch of closing auctions with bids before they actually end. It's making it hard for me to actually get the sales from the bids. I have put in a contact to the owner one last time asking him to please figure out what is going on. If he can't figure it out I really should just put all my 90 books over to blujay. If I end up doing that, it will be a Thanksgiving weekend project.

Have a glorious day!

Monday November 17

Good Morning.
The bad news is that my son did come and get the hood open. He fixed the latch on that, but found the radiator to be dry. When refilling it he discovered the water pump is leaking. So it's not the thermostat as I suspected as he said it was going whacko since it was reading air with an empty radiator.
Let's see.....I would rather spend that $100+ towards buying something else (if I even had it). The van has so many other problems, like the exhaust system being held up with hangers, neither door opening from the outside, the rack and pinion being held together with a dog chain and bolt, whatever he found wrong with the chassee and more.

On a craft note, I started crocheting the hair scrunchies yesterday, they seem tobe coming out cute. I will make what I need for Christmas presents, then list the rest of blujay.

I don't have a gather post to share today. I tried again to post a video there with no luck. It went through and processed but when I hit submit it didn't go through.

I'm going to get started on what I can on here before work...which looks like I have to walk, so please say a prayer for me that I do ok there.

Have a good day,

Sunday November 16

Good Morning.
My son couldn't get the hood open on my van yesterday to see what the problem is. We have rides coming to get the 8 of us to church this morning. It's Allen's first communion today and pastor wanted to make sure none of us missed it.

I finished up the order of dish scrubbies yesterday. Today I am going to mess around and see if I can make some crocheted hair scrunchies. These will make nice gifts for the girls on my Christmas list and if they turn out nice will be a new addition to the crafts that I sell.

I cashed out at spotwinner yesterday for $10 amazon. It's a fun site and I look forward to starting over again on points to cash out again. All amazon I earn is going to save to buy a laptop.

I have my weekly mail call post on gather to share with you all today. Mail Call! Week of November 9

I also did build another squidoo lens. This one is on Cello In the Box. It's a business that I sell for. Cello In a Box

Time to get kids up and ready for church, so until tomorrow, I will you the most blessed day.
