    :laughing: You're right!! I did have my cut & color before but couldn't get the appointment for my keratin treatment until after. So now, I have straight hair again!:thumbsup2

    Love Ikea and their prices!

    Ordered the new wood floors for the boys bedrooms! Hope to get installation soon! That and a fresh coat of paint in each and some new window treatments and we're all set! Then we can put the bedroom set we hauled from Orlando in place before Kyle & Erin come home after Christmas! :cheer2:

    Well, hello all homies! For some reason, cannot get a song out of my head, and just want to dance, dance, dance, with sunshine in my pocket. Not really a fan of most of Timberlake's songs, but that one, I just enjoy the beat of, for some reason.

    Ah, the low Fall temps are coming. 55 today, lower 50's with rain tomorrow, and now saying the high on Saturday will be 44, and blustery. Hey, it's least it's not a rainy weekend like the last one.

    And, a big wahooooooo, for those traveling at end of this month and into December. So enjoy the holiday fare in Orlando parks. Not this year though. Kids are not happy, but hey, not every year, and next year, with 2 in college, we can probably travel in early January, or leave a little earlier before Christmas. That's my plan, anyway. Will most likely be Orlando, or on a ship. Kids are lobbying to sail again. Part of me enjoys the plotting and scheming, not always the price tags.

    Oh, and it's Thursday. [​IMG], yep, upload_2018-11-8_6-39-41.jpeg . So, [​IMG]throw back a drink, and enjoy your Thursday.

    Last, but not least, it's National Cappuccino Day.

    [​IMG] Time for coffee, all! Totally great, thirsty Thursday to you all.

    :laughing: I don't even recognize myself for a few days!! I had it done in June and it lasted 3 months as my hairdresser said.

    Yum! Sounds like a Starbucks stop is in order!! Love the new holiday lattes!! Had a chestnut latte the other day:thumbsup2

    Happy Thursday all!!

    This one reminded me of the Scary Tales haunted house!

    Good morning. I can’t believe I’m ready for work early 2 days in a row. I actually have a few minutes to do a morning post.

    This afternoon I will take B over to the university where she will spend the weekend. I will be popping in and out to be going to parent sessions. I had a bit of a panic yesterday when I couldn’t find B’s social security card. I couldn’t find mine either. I finally remembered that we had put all 3 of our cards someplace safe. Maybe a little too safe.

    That’s a great idea. I need to do something like that. The bottom of my closet is a mess right now.

    What a great gift. Have a wonderful trip.

    I guess furniture is the new thing. B really does need a new bookcase. SHe has this one (only with her name on it)
    [​IMG]
    And it is way too small now. I was working for a company called Levenger when she was born. This bookcase is what the owners gave to employees who had (or adopted) a baby or child.

    Yikes! Time is up and I need to run. See y’all later.

    Morning Sans family :wave2:

    Jack is beautiful Tink congratulations on your new puppy.


    Monyk congratulations to your daughter on her license and her position as Chief Mentor.


    Thank you for your kind words on the decorations. Christmas is such a fun and cheerful time.


    Yeah!!!!! Tink on your upcoming trip. I bet the decorations will be beautiful.


    I found one of those big two sided rolls of wrapping paper at Sam’s on Tuesday. They had a nice selection of paper and ribbon.


    Starbucks always comes up with enticing yummy holiday options. I do enjoy a Starbucks for sure. They sent out an email about the new Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. Don’t usually veer from my normal coffee order there, but may have to try this one.

    Hope B has a great weekend!!:)


    I've always wanted to do a second themed Christmas tree. My living room tree is filled with sentimental ornaments. Some from when the boys were young, some the kids made, lots of vacation place ornaments, etc. But, it would be great to add a small themed tree in my family room! Yours are spectacular!!:thumbsup2

    So much to catch up on lol!
    Chance of snow lessened for tonight but cold, drizzly/rainy. Off work early, ran to local "crunchy" store to get our milk (I only get milk from a certain local dairy) and order our turkey-almost forgot to order it! Comes from local farm and they gobble until weekend before pickup-like that they were treated well and once processed not frozen. Limited supply and I was 5 from bottom of sign up sheet (meaning almost full and they just started the ordering 6 days ago). Home and dashed between rain drops to harvest herbs before freeze-handfuls of parsley, sage and rosemary. At least the sage and rosemary will keep til Tday.

    I was #886 voter at our small poll at 3:30 in afternoon. Not sure it has ever hit that high of a number, let alone for a midterm.

    Gorgeous!!! Both Halloween and Christmas trees are great! Do you put the trees away fully decorated?? It takes me full days to get ours up-I do 2 or 3 depending on mood: small one for our bedroom, more "formal" tree for living room and the "sentimental" tree for family room downstairs-although I can no longer put all the ornaments on it-way too many now.

    We still have gobs left. In a small reusable grocery bag. Slowly getting picked over. Smarties are looooong gone though:D

    :dancer:happy dance! Always nice to get trip paid down!

    :jumping1: another happy dance! Christmas season at Disney last year was so much fun!!!

    Right?? Still trying to scheme to get us to Florida this winter break...Although with Las Vegas in January I just don't know. Oh-and DH when he paid state taxes last month thinks he hit 2018 instead of 2017; he's on phone right now to see if they can switch payment to 2017 taxes. If not-well we prepaid estimated taxes and will have to take hit and pay 2017 too...ugh.

    gotta love the earworms

    OMG :rotfl2:This is ME all. the. time.

    Love the doggy Tink. Have a feeling if we do end up at home over Christmas break we will end up adopting our own fur baby.

    Ooh-and someone brought a baby kangaroo to the Nursing home yesterday!!! He was sooooo cute and soft and cuddly. Clearly loved being loved on.

    Chicken coop all winterized, plastic up. And the hens are huddled under the stairs currently:confused:

    Thinking greek chicken for dinner tonight, orzo, spanakopita. Then son and i will be left on our own for weekend as middle and DH go freeze toes off hunting. Thinking maybe new Grinch movie saturday...

    hot apple cider sounding good. maybe with splash of salted caramel vodka?

    Tgrgrl, glad to hear sick bay at your house is now closed. Love to be having 89 degrees. 44 on Saturday, with a wind chill temp of 32. So not ready for cold. Though it is November.

    No travel for us for Thanksgiving. Hope you have fun at the Dark Side. Would be nice to meet up with ya one of these days.

    Just relaxing. Poor little one seems to be sick again. Nose running. Drugs and rest for her. Too bad she does not get any days off.

    Hi all!

    Am I interpreting this thread correctly that one can post about random things here? If I'm wrong, I apologise. But I wanted to post somewhere that yesterday morning I realized the travel day for our upcoming trip is on the 10 day forecast now. Yay. And it looks good. Yay!

    This morning I woke up with the first two days of our trip in the 10 day forecast. Yay! Wait! Nooooooo!!!!! It suddenly said rain both days. But I know it's accurate this far out. It's not even accurate day of! But I can't help checking. I just checked now. Back to looking good. Yay!!!!

    Why do I do this to myself?

    Tell me you all have crazy trip countdown behavior too. I know some of you pack way before it's time to leave. Right?

    Right??

    The princess has arrived!

    Once you post in the SAN, you are family

    Yea I always check weather predictions before my Orlando trips

    If your first two days list rain, take ponchos and extra shoes

    Hopefully the rest of your stay will be rainfree

    I’m in Georgia and we are getting rain this weekend
    Maybe this new rain coming in will stop at the Georgia Florida border and Orlando will be dry and warm for your trip

    I’m a last minute packer for vacations
    I usually start 4 hours before I leave

    Figure if I fail to pack something for the trip, I can buy what I need once in Orlando

    Hi Family! :wave: Thanks for having me.

    I doubt we will get rain free. My family is well known for bringing rain with us on most/all vacations. But as long as it's not all rain or mostly rain, we'll enjoy ourselves.
    I'm hoping the sky will rain itself out and then not have any left for next weekend. Although here's hoping it doesn't rain too much on you.

    I pack the night before and tend to stress about it. My old roommate liked to tell me, "They have stores in <<insert place I was going>>, you know." I'm guessing Orlando falls into that category. :rotfl2:

    Last minute packer here.......usually the morning we leave for our overnight at the airport........sometimes the night before........

    Couldn’t be one to pack weeks before.......I’d need to bring it all back out and rewash it all!! Sitting in a suitcase for weeks or months in some cases.........I’d forget what was in there!

    Nice to see you here Princess........:)

    Yep, last minute packer here too.

    Woot, for the countdown Princess. Rain or not, vacation is always better.

    Some rain for us today. Got little one coffee to take to school. She just left a few minutes ago.

    Will go get gas for the car, then breakfast out with older one. So nice, and he wants to do the errands with me too. Great to have an extra day to relax and get things done.

    Later homies, time for some tea and quiet before I wake older one around 9.
