4/24/10 Don't Have Any Wild Parties...

...while I'm gone (I've got the police circling in case you all get out of line and invite the boys over for a kegger). And no planning any more get togethers until I'm here to vote on the dates/boo-hoo (and more importantly, do the spreadsheets tee-hee)!

A small wrench in my plans this week...Today's our 28th Anniversary and we had plans for a nice dinner out (don't tell my folks please). Instead I'm doing laundry and packing my bags tonight.

More family drama and I'm back to my parent's home in Ohio for the third time for the week (don't remind DH, but I'll be missing my birthday and his this week...can't be helped). They're panicking about getting done for the garage sale next Friday (no progress with that at all since I left and there's lots more to come out of the house...not that we won't give everything left to charity, but there's seriously a truckload now and we need to get rid of as much as possible) and the house goes on the market the following Friday. I've reviewed what's left to be done and it ain't going to happen without a lot of help, which they don't have lined up. I've got my tarps and canopy in the car for the garage sale and DH's out picking up colored dots I can tag everything with for the sale. I'm just hoping I can wrestle up some of the local kids to help move all the stuff out of the basement and move the furniture back in place as the three of us can't lift much (I inherited my bad back from Mom). Oh, and I found out that Mom fell in the yard and broke her tailbone (apparently she's sitting on a phone book...the woman is a nurse, and she read the phonebook remedy online LOL)!

I'll try to check in this week...I'm taking the laptop and I'm hoping I can find some wireless to tap into (not that I don't trust you children or anything LOL!). Happy weekend all! If you're in Columbus, stop by the garage sale next weekend and I'll load your car up with goodies!

You are amazing! I can't believe you just had gallbladder surgery and can still make all this heavy physical & mental stuff happen----you are a stronger woman than I and a good daughter

Take good care of yourself-

I didn't realize your birthday was so close to mine! (Mine is in 9 days!) HAPPY HAPPY Birthday! I'd sing it to you but I'm saving my voice for competition this weekend. And sorry that you had to miss your special celebration! I'm praying you have wonderful travels, good weather for the sale, and a quick return so you can get back to writing!

Happy Birthday. Sorry your anniversary and b-day plans are messed up. I have a birthday joke for you. Hopefully you are not offended by blonde jokes. If you are, I apologize in advance. You know it's only because I'm jealous.

During a recent password audit, it was found that a blonde was using the following password:


When asked why she had such a long password, she said she was told that it had to be at least 8 characters long and include at least one capital.

You can celebrate your anniversary when you get home and feel more relaxed!
