Bummer, but only a small one

Friday, May 08, 2009

My library doesn't have JM's Shred DVD so I asked them to borrow it from another library for me. Turns out that it is still too new to be eligible for ILL (Inter Library Loan). So, I will ask again in a couple months. I will also ask if they would consider ordering it for our library. I haven't seen other workout DVD's, so they might have decided not to carry those. I'll ask. The worst that can happen is that they'll tell me NO!! and laugh me out of the library. I've been laughed at before (today even...I said excuse me to the door when I ran into it! LOL!) and can handle it!

Those that can laugh at themselves always have something to laugh about! emoticon

  Oh, the more I know of & about Jillian the more I love her. She hasn't always been buff, she knows how much work this is! I love that you apologized to the door, rofl! Hey, do you have Comcast or another cable or dish service? I take advantage of the JM, BL and other workouts on my mum's cable - fortunately, I don't live too far away!

    Hi Cartoon,
Boring experience, try looking in the newspaper for people wanting to unload it cheap.. I also scan garage sales for stuff I can use at home too.. Sometimes I fall over stuff I have wished for, for next to no money...

Another rainy day...

Thursday, May 07, 2009

Should be the last one this week, though. Because my daughter doesn't have any more games this week!! LOL! At least it was warmer today.

The girls played pretty well tonight. They were hustling, but just not quite making the plays. Oh well. The coaches yelled at them after the game so I didn't do my own yelling. emoticon

Time to start planning the birthday party. What am I going to do with a bunch of 12 and 13-year old girls for two hours? Sounds like Truth or Dare will be played, cake will be eaten and presents will be opened. How do I fill the other 90 minutes? LOL! I'll be searching for some games and if anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them! The weather is supposed to be sunny and close to 70, so I should be able to send them outside for at least part of it. Fingers crossed!


Is it Friday yet?

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

I swear that I thought it was Friday all day today. I would remember that it's Tuesday and be disappointed and go right back to thinking "Friday"! emoticon

Tell you what, that makes for a loooooong week. Oh well, I will survive.

My daughter has another game tomorrow, and yes, it's supposed to rain. Yay! NOT!! emoticon We have snacks (why do 13 and 14 year old girls still need snacks after a sporting event?) and we are taking fruit roll ups and capri sun. I was going to do something extra for her birthday, but didn't. Didn't want to take cupcakes or candy and don't have time to think of something cooler/neater/more better!

    I feel your pain. I wish it were Friday too! And it's been raining here for days- urgh. My youngest son had a tee ball game last night that they scheduled at 7. I'm not sure who plans games for 5 year olds but next time they do that I'm going to have them come and wake him up the next morning. We also had to bring a snack- but when you think about you really want your kid to eat a snack at 9 pm on top of being tired?
Anyways...with all this rain I'm going to have to meet up with Jillian later and workout my rain aggressions, lol. I want to try to get through her videos like the other girls that smile behind her. I don't finish the workout looking pretty, I look pretty messy.

Tough or Idiots?

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

My daughter's team had a game scheduled in a town about 30 minutes away tonight. Forecast was for rain. Of course, this time they got it right. It started raining about the same time the game started. We played for about 30 minutes and then noticed that all of the other teams were gone (huge complex, six or so other games going). Did we stop? NO! WE kept playing. And kept playing and kept playing.

We finished the game (and, yes, it's a we because the parents suffered too!). It was a loss, but at least they finished the game playing instead of just quitting. By the time we were done, I was soaked (even with an umbrella) and I could not feel two of the fingers on my right hand.

So, to answer the question, tough or idiots? I'd like to think tough, but I'm not so sure!

My vote is for:

i guess rain is ok, just not if there was any lightening, but all you need is one bolt of lightening for the story to go south

I feel for you,
especially those fingers, numb from holding a wet umbrella

sorry for laughing my stupid head off,
I guess I get the vote on ME being stupid, LOL

have a great day,
because it is one!

One down, one to go

Saturday, May 02, 2009

Got my daughter's clothes all out of her room and sorted. Since her birthday is tomorrow, she didn't want to spend the day working on her room. Imagine that! LOL!

My son and I will get his done tomorrow. He prefers to do chores on Sundays since none of his friends can play on Sunday. Works for long as he actually works tomorrow!

Time to go try on some of my daughter's old clothes. There are some she doesn't like, some that don't fit her. I'll try them on and if they fit (and look good!) I'll have new clothes! Bonus!
