A Great Weekend

I have a group of internet (I call them my imaginary) friends. I love these ladies and I truly wish we didn't live all over the world. Anyway, those of us who are in the US (and one Canadian) get together once a year. This year it was this past weekend in Atlanta so it was driving distance for me Yea! I have missed the past two years because of distance. I have to say that I had the best time. We missed those that weren't there and I enjoyed meeting those ladies who I hadn't met yet. It made me realize how much this group means to me. We scrapbooked, shopped, ate, talked about our families, our friends and most importantly our Lord. It was awesome!!

I live within 4 hours of several of the ladies and I think we don't meet up enough.

On anther not I killed the microwave... It was ready to go I think because it didn't put up much of a fight. I was not looking forward to buy a new one. We only use it for 3 things, water, popcorn, and mac and cheese..... It is an over the range model so it isn't like I could just fork out 50 bucks and get a new one. And since J had to replace the alternator in my car while I was gone, the money trees are bare. So we went shopping and Voila' found one on clearance for $111 and it was the last one so we got it for $70!!! Whoo Hoo.. Thank you Jesus!!!

Now it needs to climb up on the stove and get in place and do it's job!!

Well, I need to get off and get the kids educated..A is unloading the dishwasher, Z is feeding the cat and cleaning her "bathroom" and L is bringing the dirty clothes down..So I guess I should be productive too.

Have a great day!!

I love fall. I love the open windows, the cooler temps, the falling leaves and the coffee. J is off for fall break and we are getting some cleaning done. We took a one day trip to Gatlinburg Saturday. Rested from that trip on Sunday and then today is a cleaning day. Tomorrow is up in the air, but hopefully it will be something fun. The kids and I are off all week. I leave on Thursday for a yearly trip with some dear make believe (Internet) friends of mine. We meet yearly for a little get together and I have missed the past 2. This one is in Atlanta so it is driving distance away. So we just took the whole week off. Ok.. I need to get up and get moving!
