  1. Happy Birthday Gregswife!

  2. Good morning Mary Lou. You have already been a busy lady this morning. I haven't done anything all night long except sit on my butt and watch tv I did look out a couple of hrs. ago and saw that the ground was white and it was still snowing....took me by surprise as the meterologists here didn't mention anything about that. I think I will take your advice and go to bed soon...
  3. Hi Shari....looks like it is just you and me here. We really do need to get our internal clocks on track, girl!!!
  4. Hello Crazies. Took Gregory and Scotty to Al's Formal Wear for tux measuring today, then we went to lunch, then to Borders so Noni could buy the munchkin a new book - the kid loves to read and he made sure to let me know that he only has 4 pages left in the one he is reading. Jackie, I am doing my patio decor in black, gray, white and red, to match our house which is gray, with red brick, white trim, black shutters and a red front door. Next week, I will have contractors out to give me a quote on building a pergola over the patio area, which would be painted white. Rose, I have no idea on what color I will wear for the wedding. Probably a beige or taupe. The bridesmaids gowns are purple, as are the guys ties and pocket handerchiefs. They are not wearing cumberbunds as Chris doesn't like the bow ties so they are wearing long ties. Chris will have a purple vest and purple cufflinks with his. Almost every dress I have found that I like is black and I don't know how Jessica would feel about that. I did find 2 I liked that were different shades of purple - one was eggplant and one was lavender but she doesn't want the mothers in the wedding colors. I think I will sit down and talk to her this weekend while we are in Kansas City, and see just exactly what she wants. Ray, I used to love "While You Were Out". I watch a lot of shows on HGTV and DIY....Greg wishes i wouldn't as I am always getting new ideas, which means work for him!!! Can't remember if I posted it or not, but we bought a tree on Saturday and planted it where the pond used to be....a peach tree. Wonder how many years it takes before it bears fruit? I built a retaining wall yesterday from the landscaping stones that were all around the pond. My arms and back are letting me know about it today. I have been in touch with Ed, he and Roe are fine...just very busy.
  5. Hey Crazies. Greg and I are just watching a movie and he paused it to tend to the hounds so thought I would check in. Mary Lou, how wonderful that you did not have to make a trip to Deb's during the night. I had to laugh - I too, have offered Scotty money for a few minutes peace and quiet....he loves money so much that he takes it seriously and always gets the pay out - in my opinion, he and I are both winners. Worked on the back yard today. Last week, Greg had dug up and pulled out the fish pond - had become more trouble than it was worth. Today we went and bought a peach tree and planted it in the hole. Also found an outdoor area rug and bought it, and painted some planters to go with my new "outdoors decor". I told him a few days ago that I wanted to get rid of the arbor back there, it was 10 years old and really showing signs of wear. When I got up at 8:30 this morning and went outside to see what he was doing, I saw a big pile of firewood - used to be the arbor...that made me happy. I decided today that I want a fire pit, so looking for one I like. Martha, yes the fact that we are 6 weeks away from the big day could be keeping me up at night. When I do lay down, I go thru lists in my mind. I still have not found a dress for the wedding, not for lack of trying. I did buy a new dress for the rehearsal dinner, but need a floor length gown for the wedding and I have been everywhere I can think of to no avail. Penney's said that with prom season coming, they should be getting some in soon but I can't wait too long. We are going to Kansas CIty next week, so thought I might look there. Well, Greg is back, so time for the movie again....
  6. Rose, Chris's wedding is May 7th - 6 weeks from tomorrow. Gregory's is 11-11-11 so we have about 6 months from the time Chris's is over to the next one.
  7. Hello Crazies...late check in. I was home all day but very busy. It is still a little over 10 months until we fly to Florida for our next cruise, but we booked a private beach cabana on Half Moon Cay for the trip this evening. We had to pay for it in advance, but we wanted to get our reservation in as soon as they opened up and not take a chance on not getting one as there are only about 8-10 of them on the island, according to Carnival's map. You pay when you make the reservation and then you go to the desk when you board the ship, and you pick which cabana you want and since sodas, water, snacks, fruit, etc. are included in the price, you put in your preferences then. I think I will be able to get the very one I want as one of the Troublemaker couples are renewing their vows onboard the ship and since the ceremony is scheduled to occur before we sail, the "wedding party" and guests get to board before everyone else. We have to be at the pier by 10:00. a.m. so it is my plan to go pick my cabana as soon as we board. I have errands to run tomorrow - my mother-in-law is going to run me ragged. She keeps sending me for things for the wedding...mainly gifts from her relatives in Missouri who won't be able to attend but they keep sending her money to do the shopping for their gifts for Chris and Jessica's wedding and since they are flying, she tells me what to go get. She called me today and said she had put something on hold at Bed Bath and Beyond today and told them I would be there tomorrow - so guess I will be!!! Then she told me to go buy Greg's birthday present since it falls when they are here for the wedding. I better get paid back for all this shopping. A "would you please" would be nice, but I don't see that happening. Falina, hope you are feeling better quickly. CONGRATS MARTHA!!! That is awesome.
  8. Hello Crazies. I stayed home all day and got things done around here...finished sewing basket liners for the laundry room (to match the curtains I made in there), did all the laundry, booked a cleaning service to come in the day before the houseguests start arriving for the wedding - well worth the $307 they quoted me, to have someone else scrub all the tubs, showers, toilets, baseboards, change the sheets on all the beds, etc. They will even remove and clean out all the light fixtures. With 12 houseguests - 4 of whom are ages 1,2,3 & 4, I may need them to come back once everyone leaves!!! We ordered a new sectional L-shaped seating arrangement for the patio and I have been looking for an 8 x 10 outdoor area rug to go with it but haven't found anything that I really care for yet, so I guess my search for that will contine - just tired of looking at rugs online so am taking a break and thought I would check in...
  9. Shaunna, so good to hear from you. I hope you are 100% quickly and that Steph gets well soon too.
  10. Debbie, thanks for the laughs....Sadie will turn 5 on April 4th - wanna' come cook for her??? If not, she will probably have dog food.
  11. Good morning Crazies....going to bed at 4:00 and getting up at 7:00 is for the birds - wish I would stop doing it!!! Going shopping today - we are going to Kansas City next week and I want to take Chris and Jessica's wedding presents with us so they don't have to haul them back after the wedding. Off to buy a Keurig coffeemaker, coffee pods and the pod holder today. Then will pop over to Macy's and pick up a few things off her registry there. I am supposed to have my motorcycle rider safety course this weekend, but am waiting for them to open in about 9 mins. so I can call and reschedule for a later date. They are calling for snow on Saturday and I don't want to have to ride up there and then take the class in the snow, so will move it to June, when the chance of the white stuff has passed. Hope you all have a good day....
  12. Hello Crazies. Greg and I did a charity ride in the form of a poker run with our HOG group today. I rode farther than I ever have on my trike. We rode for 7 hours, stopping at 5 different Irish pubs. My body is really feeling it now. Tomorrow is supposed to be another gorgeous day, but I dpn't foresee myself getting back on that thing anytime soon. We got to go to dinner last night with Chris - Jessica ended up going out with her bridesmaids. The plan was for them to leave this morning to head back to Kansas City....I am thinking they left VERY EARLY this morning as I got a text from him at 11:20 a.m. that they were home and it is a little over 600 miles. Next weekend, I have a 2 day, all day rider safety course. I am not looking forward to it, but it will give me my motorcycle endorsement on my license. Steve, I know that saying goodbye to our loved ones is never easy, but just remember all the joy that Gramps brought into your life. He certainly brought a smile to our faces, with his shennanigans and we didn't even know him...
  13. Another one of those crappy sleep nights....or should I say "no sleep" nights. It has been very warm here the past 2 days...Wed. it got up to 75 degrees and yesterday it was in the 60's but it is snowing now. Not expected to be much of a big deal - they said a few inches on the grass that would be gone by afternoon. Tomorrow is our HOG group's St. Patrick's Poker Run and Ride - it will be a cold ride in the morning but it supposed to warm up to 60, so should be fun and we hope to raise lots of money for charity. I think there will have to be some napping going on today as we are having dinner with Chris tonight before he heads back to KC in the morning. I am still doing some heavy duty "spring cleaning" - I have another big box of stuff to go to charity and I'm not stopping there. Greg brought up some furniture from the basement the other day and we took it and there is more to follow. We can't give our old stuff to the kids because they have better stuff than us. Last month, we bought a new 55" LCD/LED HD 3D flat panel tv with wireless internet. We had a 57" inch tv that we bought about 4 years ago and it had a huge oak entertainment center that took up the whole wall - the kids laughed when we asked them if they wanted it...they said NO ONE would want it. We did end up giving it to a ranch for disabled children, and even though both were in excellent condition, I called a lot of charities before I found one that would take it. Our HOA sponsors a community garage sale every spring...we never participate but I do haul stuff out to the end of the driveway and put a free sign on it. There are so many people driving all thru the neighborhood that day as they advertise it very well, and you wouldn't believe the junk that people will take if it is free. I don't think anything lasts more than 30 minutes or so. I will have to check and see when they are having that so I get rid of more stuff. Well, if I am not going to sleep, I may as well get some housework done - doesn't everyone do laundry at 2:30 in the morning???
  14. Good morning Crazies. Happy St. Patricks Day to you all. We are having cabbage tonight, but since we don't like corned beef, I am making baby back ribs. Well, Kevin certainly has a gorgeous day for travelling - it is sunny and heading to the 70's. Looks like a good day to get out and enjoy it but I am going to stay home and get some things done around here.
