UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

This promises to be a spirited swap! Old ghoulfriends and new ghoulfriends are welcome to sign up. I promise to include lot's of corny Halloween jokes and bad puns, and the group will supply the camaraderie.
Don't be afraid to don your best pointy hat and join in, even if you have never participated in a plant swap before.
I would love to get this one back to basics with plants and a Halloween theme as the centerpiece. Many of us suffered losses due to weather issues this year, so let's scale back from 5 plants to 4 plants required to participate. Remember that in this group sending plants is supposed to be fun! Send what you like and what you would be happy to receive and don't stress about having the newest and greatest. This is still a good time of year for most of us to plant daylilies and German iris and many perennials, and fall bulbs would be absolutely wonderful to send! If your zone limits the fall bulbs that can be grown in your area, please let me know-I will try to match you with someone who can accommodate you.
The rules:
1. You must be at least 18 to join this swap.
2. You must send at least 4 plants. With bulbs, each variety will be considered 1 plant. For example, if you send 8 tulip bulbs and 5 are Orange Emperor tulips and 3 are Queen of Night tulips, each different variety will counts as 1 plant, so that would be a total of 2 plants for purposes of the swap. Please try to send plants that relate to Halloween in some way. It could be that the name includes a Halloweeny word like witch or moon or magic or midnight; or ones that are a Halloweeny color like orange, black or purple.

3. In addition to the plants, include something scary! That could be a scary Halloween decoration, the horror paperback you just finished reading, a picture of my third grade teacher (she terrified me, and still does decades later) or anything else that conveys the spirit of the season. The trick is not to spend a lot of money on your treat, but express what you love about the season!

4. All boxes should be sent priority with delivery confirmation unless it is all fall bulbs, which will probably be fine going parcel post with delivery confirmation, which adds just 18 cents to parcel post rate.

5. Once you receive your box, please share the contents with the group. We want to share each others fun!

6. Sign ups start now and will close on Friday, September 28. I will assign partners on the 29th and we will make October 15 the absolutely last day to send your partner's box. We want to be sure that everyone has time to enjoy their scary Halloween surprise.

Sign up here and email me at poisondartfrog@myway.com. If you are new to the group, share with us a little about yourself. What do you like? What kind of plants do you grow? Do you have a family, pets, hobbies? Pictures are welcome.

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Just popping in to say HI to everyone.
I tried to catch up on all the posts but no way! This is too talkie a bunch. I hope I can jump back on the swap-wagon in a month or so, but right now just too much going on. A lot of mental stuff. My daughter and her jerk of a hubby and the expected twins. He went to school for a month for heating and a/c and then got a job. He worked 7 days and they let him go. No explanation, or at least not one that he gave my daughter.
Then my mom fell and was hospitalized and I had to make a trip to Michigan. She's ok, didn't break anything, but they put her in a nursing home for rehab for who knows how long. They have their first treatment team meeting on Tuesday. She's been there 3 week tomorrow. I have 3 siblings up there with her, but I just had to go check things out myself.
On the up-side....things have finally cooled down here. Finally. But I guess it has for most everyone. It rained one day! woohoo!
Anyway, just wanted to say hello. Miss you all.
Have a great day all.

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes! I had a great birthday, beautiful blue skies, temps have cooled down into the 80's, but still no rain. One glass of sherry, that's all. Everyone else took this birthday a lot harder than I did.

Pixie, I don't think I have your address-send it to me please. I expect to mail yours and Sandy's boxes out next Monday. I am hoping to get something I ordered this week.

Have a good Monday folks. I will be back with your dose of Halloween later today.

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Good morning everyone! I love the logos! Very cute! Diene - that is so funny! I emailed you twice as well! I received one of your emails, but I guess not the other. I hope you got my addy from Trina, as it doesn't seem my emails are coming to you! Sorry! If not, let me know, and I'll try it from a different email. I'm glad you had a good birthday, Alana! And I'm glad it didn't hit you too hard. Plus, it's really no fun to be drunk on your birthday!

Boy did I have a shock yesterday! Okay, so not a shock, but still a suprise! I told Dave that I had gotten the last 3 episodes of Desperate Housewives on DVD from Netflix, but I was just going to send it back, because I really didn't have time to watch it, and I'd rather get something everyone else will enjoy. Well, he says, lets watch it right now. So, he and I sat there and watched those 3 episodes, which got done somehow right at 8, so then we turned on the new one. That is like unbelievable, that my husband would sit through 4 episodes of Desperate Housewives with me (and didn't even fall asleep once!) Wow - I was a happy girl!

Morning all! I don' know if any of you order from Spring Hill Nursery but....they have flat rate shipping of 1.48 for the next week. I'll probally be drooling over that site for a while today. Anyone ever order from them? I should check them out over on dave's garden before I order. I might give tham a try if feedback is good. Later....

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Good Morning April! Thanks for the email, I got a good laugh off of that, certainly needed that this morning! I personally have not ordered from there but do know that many from the Clematis Forum have in the past.

There is one particular post running of a review of all of the fall orders coming in. It was posted by Nckvilledudes. He is one of the smartest clematis growers out there. I will post the link to his thread so you can see the accounts on Spring Hill as I know they were mentioned there along with many other online garden suppliers.

Becki! Congratulations! That is good news. See, there was the upside of dh reading your emails. :o) I am glad for you. Sunday night is a bit of a date night here with the wives and brothers and sisters. We cuddle up on the couch and laugh together! That is always a good thing with me. I am happy for the two of you. Sad to say, I didn't catch it last night though. It is hard to get back in the routine of watching the shows after so much time off for the summer! You will have to fill me in!!!

Tracy


 o
RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Thanks, Tracy! We didn't cuddle on the couch, just sat in our own chairs, but it was still very nice! Very unlike him lately. So, yes, I think some good did come from the emails. At the very least, it opened up some not so fun conversation that needed to happen!

Okay, DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU INTEND STILL TO WATCH THE DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES EPISODE FROM LAST NIGT - THIS WILL RUIN IT FOR YOU!!!! But, if you just want to get caught up without taking the time to watch it, here is my best synopsis of what happened last night (whew - it's a bunch!!)

Hmm - well Edy (sp?) is still alive, Carlos saved her in time, and has been with her since, despite promising Gabrielle that they would run off together. He and Gabby did appear to end the show meeting at her house and spending an evening together, though. Oh, and when he woke up the next morning on the couch at Edy's, she had gone through his stuff during the night, and found out about a $10 million off-shore account. She threatens him that he better never hurt her. (Bit**) Umm... A new neighbor moved in with her cute doctor husband and her daughter who used to be Julie's best friend. The doctor just happend to be an OB/GYN, and when Susan goes to see hers, he is gone, and her new neighbor ends up giving her the pap (very uncomfortable)! She tells him that she has been having irregular periods, and he tells her she is probably starting menopause. Lynette has started Chemo, and has no hair now, but has been wearing a wig. A woman from her kids' school has been pressuring her to do a lot, and she finally breaks down and pulls off her wig and says she has cancer - all her friends see this and are shocked. Also, her mother (whom she can't stand) has moved in to help, and has given them the $10,000 they need for the deductable on their insurance (ouch!) Uh, Bree is not really pregnant, she is wearing a fake thing, because Danielle is really pregnant and staying at a convent. Aparrantly Bree wants to pass this baby off as her own. Anyway, they are at a BBQ, thrown by the new neighbor, and a big fork sticks in her belly, and someone notices. She and Orson pretend it is a trick fork, and he stabs her several more times in the belly to prove it. Not really funny! Oh, Susan and Mike get married - she suprises him with a tiny cermony in the woods with just them and Julie and a preacher. He had been working overnight to try to come up with the money for the wedding. She is really upset though with the whole menopause thing, because even though she doesn't, she knows Mike wants kids, and she wants to be able to give them to him. Well, suprise, suprise - the new doctor shows up and says he is so embarrased - she's not in menopause, she's pregnant! The new girl (the daughter next door) doesn't remember anything from her childhood, except she has a dream about a man coming in and taking her during the night, and Julie surmises that this is not the same girl she played with as a kid. Oh, and all 4 ladies (Gabby, Bree, Susan and Lynette) all promise to not keep any more secrets from eachother (even though some aren't being very truthful about that.) Okay, I can't remember anything else, but if I missed something, or I got it wrong, someone else please correct me!

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Ewww!!! Yucky, Alana!!!!

I have no idea how they got all that in one episode! Now, the whole Susan pregnancy thing begs the question - is it Mikes??? Or might it be Ian's???? Trina - it is definitely a VERY interesting show!! You can really get caught up in it. Very dramtic, but incredibly funny as well. Okay, so isn't there supposed to be a nurse in the room when the doctor does a pap? That's the way it is here where I live, but now I'm wondering if it's that way all through the U.S., because there was no nurse in the room with Susan - just her and the doc. And that was really wierd to me. But, mabye we're just wierd here! : )


 o
RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Oh boy...I can't keep up!!! LOL I've never watched desperate housewives, the hubby won't let me..says he doesn't want me to get any "ideas". LOL :O) But boy...if all THAT was packed into one episode, Golly...I couldn't keep up ANYWAY. My attention span isn't big enough to sit through an entire hour. That's why the only soap I watch is The Bold and the Beautiful! LOL I tried to watch Days of our Lives today..but since I haven't seen that one in about 6-7 years (carrie was married to Austin and Sammy was pregnant with Austin's baby, but it turned out to be Lucas's...) THAT is how long ago I watched it!!! Gosh..It may have been longer than THAT. I was surprised to still see Sammy on there, and the same Lucas. Usually they change a few times. Oh, and Guiding Light. I used to watch that one with my mom when I was growing up, and they still have some of the same people on it!! Amazing, but Reva never ages!!! :O) Come to think of it...Neither does Susan Lucci!! (different soap, though..and one I've never watched....) :O)

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Actually hubby's ex and I had instant dislike. She reminds me of my mother in all the wrong ways. Mostly I hated how she treated a grown man like a toddler (dude, she cut his steak for him). Sadly hubby had limited experiance with women (he was heavy into sports and then went into construction) and figured that if he met a "nice lady" at church than it was gods will. She was litterally his 2nd girlfriend ever. Unfortunatly deciding you'll pick your wife out of the ladies in a catholic church in the middle of the desert does somewhat limit your options. Both the ex, my 75 year old grandmother (who I adore), and Steve's 73 year old mother attend mass there weekly. We had offered to pay for the plane trip and a moving van for her to move to where her daughters live, as she has no family out here, but her daughters do not want her there, as she had sex with one of thier husbands in the dressing room at the walmart in town (classy, huh?). Sadily if she just dropped off the face of the earth, I don't think anyone would mind. Hubby's a nice guy who feels that since he did tell her he'd take care of her, no matter what (before they married) that he should keep his word to keep a roof over her head and food in her fridge, even though she clearly didn't keep to her half of the vows. (I can respect his ideals here, but not quite the execution). I just think we've done all that we should, her apt is paid, the car is paid, we offered to move her to a new town where she can start over, but she's not interested (I think she enjoys the drama of it all). Anyways hub's lawyer is sending her lawyer another, "nope, not paying more" letter.

Halloween is actually our "big" holiday here, we have 2 parties (one at the centerwhere we go all-out, and one at my home for our buds). So with a month left I'm fine tuning those (is it cheating to have one catered?) Last year was a pirate complete with "skeleton crew" and it was talked about right up to xmas time.

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

beckilove... that Dr. wasn't too bright to go into a pap without a "witness". To be honest, they typically utilize them as assistants as well. Maybe he's very secure in his job to feel that he doesn't need an assistant in there with him.

tracyvine... my gyn is a male, and he's awesome! Totally great guy. Cute, too.

hazelnutbunny... I've never watched Desperate Housewives, either, but by choice. It just doesn't appeal to me. No matter, my Tivo is already overloaded with season passes. Heh.

No Halloween decorating for me this year. I'm plain tired of doing it. Not even handing out candy this time. I'll be working instead. I'll begrudgingly decorate the house for Christmas only because we host Christmas Eve every year. The bug simply hasn't hit me this year to be festive.

Ok. I need to nap. Heading to work tonight without any sleep is going to stink. I wasn't able to rest earlier because my dog had to have emergency surgery... again! The site that they operated on the other week opened up so they had to go back and close it up. My poor pup. :(

I'll fix the logo's size today. If everyone agrees, we can use it to start our threads like OBF does. :) Kinda binds us as a group!

Fishy, Hope that lady gets the hint this time, glad to see you're standing firm. The kids are super excited about Halloween. We need to pick our pumpkins this weekend or I will have a riot on our hands! They are decorating all over town and the kids are getting impatient with me. LOL!

Lucky me gets to go to dentist for a root canal on a tooth (that supposed to have been only a 20% chance of me needing) that I got crowned on Wed!Talk about your horror stories. The 600mg ibuprofen is not helping the pain.So I might not be on here much tomorrow. Later....April/dirt_under_my_nails

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Oh, You poor thing, April! I don't know if it is much help, but my son earlier this year (he was 9 at the time) had to have a root canal done. He had a broken tooth that ended up infected. I can tell you he was SO glad that he had it done! It was so worth it to get rid of that pain. I just asked him about it again, and he said the only part that hurt of the root canal was when they stuck the needle in to numb it. After that he couldn't feel anything, except when they had to put one of the root things behind his nose - that he felt, but it didn't hurt. It was his front tooth, so I don't think anything will go behind your nose, unless it's a front tooth. Afterwards, he did have really bad pain, but they said that was very unusual, and it went away within a couple hours. After that, he was just so thankful that he had it done (like he had a choice!) So, anyway, I don't think it's as bad as most people make it out to be (at least it wasn't for my 9 year old son!) I hope it all goes really well for you! I'll be thinking of you!

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Eeewww...Root canals!! Oh, I feel so sorry for you, April!! Hugs Hugs and MORE HUGS!!! Yucky, icky, no fun at all.
Okay, enough trying to cheer you up. (LOL)
Seriously, Becki is right...they really aren't all that bad. I've had 2 unplanned ones, one in my front tooth and another in a molar...and after you get past the shots, you don't feel a thing. Honest. And you won't ever again, because the nerve is totally dead!! YAY! (I think. Could be bad, in some senarios, I suppose......or it's entirely possible that my dentist did it wrong, and THAT would be why my molar is breaking apart and I don't feel a thing. Hmmm.)
Anyway. Sending you a Hug and a Kiss!!

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

April, that is bad news. I have some experience in the root canal. Mine was an altogether good experience. I had plenty of novacaine/lidocaine and made sure to mention to the dentist if I started feeling anything. Did you say you already had the crown put on last week? Geeze! Normally they do the root canal first then the crown. That is too bad sweetie. Throw some tylenol on top of the ibuprofen, hopefully that might help lessen the pain, ice pack on the outside if you can tolerate the cold.

Hi Bobbie! Sorry for missing you earlier! I can't believe I forgot to say hello to you! Bad Tracy!!!! Jump in whenever you like, new folks are welcome with open arms here! Glad to hear we give you a giggle! That is our bread and butter... Comedy relief! Right Girls? LOL!

Becki, ouch! Reminds me of just after we moved here. Pat was running through the house with Jack hot on his heels. They were both in their socks. Pat took the corner too fast on the hard wood in the hallway, flipped over and landed on his mouth. His front teeth went through his lip and the gums swelled up all around his teeth, they got infected but luckily it was controlled by antibiotics. Oh, the best part is that this happened on the Monday after July 4th. Dentist was CLOSED! Emergency call to the office! They called him and he called right back... from the golf course! Where else?! LOL! Anyway, fast response, good dentist, teeth are healthy and the adult ones took their place nicely, will probably need braces but they aren't too bad.

To all you other Lurkers out there!!!! Pop in and say hi to us! We love to meet new folks and say howdy! Come on in, set a spell, we bet you'll make us laugh too! LOL!

whoohooo there's the bunny!!!!

OUCHIE OUCHIE Tracy your story reminds me of Christmas Day of 95. The boys got roller blades and a basketball goal. Nan, Alan and I were out there on the driveway playing basketball on rollerblades, Nan had the ball, I wasn't looking, he hollered "catch Mom" bout that time I looked up and got hit right in the mouth with the ball. Knocked out my two front teeth. Needless to say there are no dentists open on Christmas day. Our dentist though did come in for the "emergency" Bad bad bad.

something about Christmas's that just doesn't like me eh? lmao


 o
No MORE Lemon Bars

OK Tracy, You MAY end up getting a vampire dog in the swap after all!!! I was doing some work in here and heard a can hit the floor in the kitchen, went in to see what the kiddo's were doing and saw the can on the floor with mud licking her chompers. Then I noticed that the lemon bars (that were on the counter top) were gone except for one and it looked like someone had licked off the powered sugar. I asked fox if he had eatin any (yeah like he ate an entire cookie plate of them?) he said no. I knew the cookie monster that ate them!!!! Sheesh oh well no more lemon bars!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Thanks for all the concern gang! Tracy, you are right about the root canal then the crown thing. He did a pulp test & I was told no canal was needed.So he went ahead with the crown. 20% chance that I 'might' need one later. I'm sorry but I thought later meant years NOT days!!!
SmileyCentral.com
Glad we have some dental insurance, but now I guess he'll have to recrown it after the canal?I dunno..but I'm sure it won't be for free!
Now the baby is coming down with whatever the oldest has. CALGON TAKE ME AWAY!!!!!

Welcome to all newbies. Enjoy the show! LOL!

Well, here's something scary! Sunday early evening while we were watching our DVD, a tornado touched down about 3 miles away from us. It had been raining most of the afternoon (which is probably why hubby was indoors!), but we did notice one time that it got REALLY windy and the rain was going sideways. But, here we were sitting the livingroom watching Desperate Housewives, as a tornado very easily could have hit us! Frightening!! Fortunately no one was hurt, just lots of building and crop damage.

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Becki, next time try this good weather spell.
Light a golden candle. Draw a 5 inch map of the area you want to protect from bad weather. Circle the map above the candle flame clockwise three times, imagining the candle flame is the sun. Burn the paper in the flame while uttering this incantation:
Fair weather, I ask you to shine
on this special day of mine.
I have chased the clouds away,
so the sun will shine all day.

Now, anyone have a rain spell? The rain keeps going north or south of us and we will be back in the 90's for the week, at least. Who stole October?

April,

Good luck at the dentist today! If you still have pain after the appointment go grab the adult orajel at the drugstore. It's double the strength, I think. Or tell the dentist to give you a doggie bag of the numbing cream they use before the shots, it's the least he could do!

Becki,
Sounds like Emma, she is my cookie monster here. I have to bake at her nap time otherwise she keeps snatching them when I turn my back as they cool on the wire rack. Grrrr! Stinkerbell! Scary about the tornadoes. We had some around here last month, the winds were very bad, lots of small hail. The tornado didn't hit here but it did touch down after the storm moved east of us. I get really nervous when the sky turns that strange green/black color, that tells me that we are in for a doozie! Our living room has a window seat and is on the west wall of the house so we have front row seats to all the storms coming our way.

We had our morning off to a not so nice start. Jack got sent home from school before the bell even rang! He was playing outside with all his friends and was stung by a Yellow Jacket Bee under his eye. His eye swelled shut and his cheek looked like he pouched a cantaloup! We had to pick him up and get some benadryl into him. Brought him home to keep an eye on it as this is his second sting that he swelled up so heavy. I don't like these bees this time of year, they get pretty agressive in the fall. I worry about him and these reactions. Luckily the swelling is on its way down, his eye is looking almost normal now. The cheek is about half the size it was when he got home so we will be sending him back soon. Might have to find that boy a beekeeper suit.

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Oh, poor Jack!! That is so bad! From the time she was about 2, until probably 5, every summer, Elizabeth would get a bug bite right by her eye. I don't know why, but it just never failed during those few years. All of a sudden she would wake up with a swollen eye - looked like someone had socked her a good one! The first time, when she was little, it totally freaked me out, because it was so swollen, you couldn't see the bug bite, so I didn't know what happened. After that, I new when she woke up with a puffy eye, there would probably be a bug bite under all that swelling. Ick! Glad that hasn't happened in a while (knock on wood!) Hope Jack feels better soon!

Thanks for the spell, Alana! I'll have to try that later, as we are looking at the possibility of more bad weather tonight.

Well, off to rebake those cookies!


 o
RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

All is well, he is back at school with strict instructions to walk calmly away from any bees, no swatting at them. The swelling is gone (thank you maker of benadryl), all that remains is an ugly red patch with a tiny swelled line under his eye. Whew, I have no experience with bee allergies. I worry about it, I have heard that the reactions become increasingly severe with each bite. True? Need to talk to the doctor about that.

Becki, the kids have been getting so bit up by the bugs since the middle of September. Yick, spider activity is peaking. I keep stripping sheets and throwing them in the wash because the little guys keep waking up with spider bites. Me too for that matter, yick, spider in the beds! Ew! That had to freak you out with Elizabeth waking up with the swollen eyes! Sheesh, you'd have to begin to wonder if she was getting mugged in her sleep. Poor girl! That is there jobs, keep us guessing at all times! What next?

Poison, Love the spell! I will have to borrow that one. Don't like those angry storms, not one bit!

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Yeah, Tracy! I'm starting to wonder if we've got spiders in bed once in a while too. We have some spiders in the basement, and I squish every one I see. But, I need to spray, I guess. I hate doing that, but in a old house surrounded pretty much by farms, you never know what you might find in your basement. Yep, lets see, so far - lots of different bugs and spiders, snakes, mice, and even a couple frogs. Doesn't help that I don't keep the basement as uncluttered as I should. I certainly learned with the mice that any food not in cans in the basement needs to be put into rigid plastic containers. I'm not perfect about that (I end up with lots of boxes of cereal somehow, and all those I have trouble keeping in platsic), but all my baking goods - flour, sugar, etc... stay in tightly sealing containers. I had a bag of flour down there one time (in my pantry in the basement), and when I pulled it from the shelf, there was a big hole in the back with a nice little burrow built in! It was so gross!! Ew - you probably didn't want to here about that! But, anyway, I learned my lesson! : )

Glad Jack is better! As far as bees - I have quite a few bumble bees around here, which is great, as they do such good pollinating! But, I haven't seen much else. And as long as I leave the bumbles alone, they don't bother us. Sometimes though, it's a bit scary to be working in the garden, when you hear buzzing all around!!


 o
Baking

Well, I am very seriously trying to get ready for hopefully doing holiday baking for others this holiday season! I have been going through cookbooks, finding recipes I am going to try, and over the next week or two, I will be doing lots of baking - trying the recipes, and taking pictures of them, then slapping them in the freezer (so I'll have plenty at least for myself when the holidays come!) I went to Walmart last night to stock up some (though I still have lots more to get), and when I checked out, the girl said, "Oh, you must be doing some serious baking!" I made the mistake of saying, "Yes, I'm getting ready for Christmas!" She looked at me like I had 2 heads! It was really funny, but I quickly explained that I have 6 kids and am really busy during the holidays, so I am going to bake now, and put it in the freezer. She still seemed pretty amused, but got over the shock of thinking I thought it was almost Christmas or something!

Does anyone else here have a bit of a cookbook obsession? I love finding new ones! I have several on my wishlist at PBS, but most of them I'm a LONG way down on the list! Pooh! I guess I'll have to check out ebay for the ones I REALLY want! I love trying new recipes!!

yes bee stings can get worse with each sting, next time take a pic of the swelling to show your doc. Hubby had to carry benadryl in his wallet when he worked for the post office. you can most likely get a DR's note for you son to carry or keep a single-packet (you know 2 pills wrapped together). Today is history class for the older grades again, the fall of Rome is on the agenda.

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

: ) That is quite alright, Diene! Don't worry about sending them! I'm sure all you sent is enough!! : )

Oh, Klick - that is no good! You poor thing! I hope you get some sleep tonight!!

Melissa - that is awful! I hope everyone feels better soon! We have the same thing happen here. Now, every time one person gets sick, Dave tells me to run all over the house and spray lysol on every doornob, faucet knob, and everything else that is likely touched much. I don't know that it helps, but that's what he wants me to do, so I oblige.

Alana - can't wait for the next game!!!

I should probably be in your history classes, Fishy! My husband always wonders if they even teach history to kids in school these days, as I don't know much about it, I guess. He says an 8th grade education back when he was growing up gave a kid just about as much knowledge as a person that goes through 4 years of college nowadays. At least as one that graduated high school. He went through 8th grade, and then went to a vocational school after that. For some reason he quit just a few months before graduating, but got his GED. But, I can tell you, the man has WAY more knowledge than I do! And I got my high school diploma! I even went to college for 3 months! : ) (Sad, huh? I had a 4 month old at the time, plus started having panic attacks. Not a fun time for me.)

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Hello Ghouls!

I am here, the hubster hijacked the computer this afternoon and got caught up on making his estimates to customers! Sheesh, he types slowwwwwwww. Took forever. I keep trying to just get him to write them out for me and I will get them set up in the computer and take care of the rest. Lot faster that way. He's a hunt and pecker!!! LOL! Writes faster with a pen! Sheesh!

Bunny, I hope everyone starts to feel better there!!! I am not looking forward to cold and flu season. Ed, Ted and I already ran one nasty bout with it. I don't want it again! Plus, with 4 of the kids in 4 different school buildings we now have all sorts of different germola's coming home! Whoa is me! LOL!

Fishy,
Jack's face started to puff up again after dinner. This is the same thing that happened after he was stung in the foot over the summer. We dosed him with more benadryl. Hopefully it stays down this time. I will be calling the nurse to see if the doctor has to sign an order allowing him to keep it at school with her. Very smart idea about taking a picture of his face. I took your advice. Does your hubby's sting site stay red for a long time? Jack's is about 2" around the area.

Started the fall clean up of the yard on Sunday. Started laughing yesterday when all the heavy rain came in again and knocked down more leaves into the flower beds!! Ah, the never ending raking begins! :o) Nights have been dropping down to the 40's and 50's. So nice to have the crisp evenings back. The smell of fall is in the air!

Can't wait for the next quiz!

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

As I remember...

The sting was on his arm and his tricep swlled up to the size of my thigh, stayed red swollen and bloated for 3-4 days. After that he went to an epi-pen (yes an injection) because of reaction danger.

Becki, that's the beauty of being an adult, you can choose what you'd like to learn about and when. Most of my classes are online, and so long as I stick to my schedule, it works well for me (I cram it all in on wensdays, while hubby handles our boys). History is taught in a sprial of about 4 years, so you do 1. anchient> 2. middle ages> 3. euro history> 4. US history> in a cycle every 4 years (I remember 1>6th grade: 2> 7th grade: 3>8th grade: 4>9th grade and repeat). What we do now is focus on the "key events and people" that happened in our time frame, example Ceaser and Cleopatra is a 3 lesson block of each of ther contributions, and 1 of thier joint history, the kids may not be able to remember what year it occoured, but they can tell you Ceasar died in March stabbed by his friends, or that Cleopatra was trained to rule Egypt after her sisters died young. They can also locate Greece, Rome, Alexandria, Egypt, Baghdad, Syria, Mesopotamia, and other places on maps. Still a long way to go, we're at ~ 100 BC now, so still 2,000 years to learn.

Oh yeah...

Did I mention how well the plants were packaged by dirt?!? They're all healthy! One swap this year was such a disappointment. A box showed up literally stuffed with plants. Problem was the person wrapped the entire plant, including the foliage, with wet newspaper. Half the plants were rotten by the time it reached me. :( If only that girl knew it only took a little effort to package plants properly like dirt did.

On a brighter note... this is my "costume" for work this year:

Good Job April! Woo hoo! How is the mouth feeling today? I hope the root canal went smoothly. How are the kiddos? I hope they are feeling better and not running you down.

Becki, I was never a fan of history in school. It was all dates and timelines. Couldn't keep all of it straight so I tuned a lot of it out. Now that I am an old broad, I sit up late and watch the History Channel! I love learning about the battles, who the leaders were, stories of the actual men and women that made contributions to the war efforts. It has been a surprising change to me.


 o
RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Tracy - that's funny! As I read Fishy's post about being able to learn what you want to learn as an adult, I thought, you know, I'm sadly just not interested in learning a lot about history. I know that it's important, and things I should know, but really doesn't interest me, and never has. Hopefully as I get older, it will! But, I certainly do feel that I am learning constantly! Like gardening - I am constantly learning new things! I know WAY more than I did when I started, and there is SO MUCH more to learn!!

Klick - your box sounds awesome! Sounds like you did a great job, April!!! Fun, fun!

My hubby

Hey, girls! I just wanted to ask if you could maybe say a quick prayer for my hubby. He is having such a tough time. No, it's not his health (though that is never the best), but mentally, things are just piling up on him. Money is ALWAYS scarce for us - that's nothing unusual. But, he builds hay feeders that he designed, and delivers them. He has 4 feeders that need to go to Tuscon, AZ and should have been there several weeks ago. The problem is that his truck needed a new motor, he didn't think it would make it all the way to Arizona and back. So, last week he bought an older truck that had a rebuilt engine in it, and has been in the process of swapping motors in them (all in an effort to save money, of course - thank goodness he trained to be a mechanic!) Well, he was all ready to put the "new" motor into his truck this morning, and he called me a little bit ago and said that as he was lifting it (using a cherry picker borrowed from a friend - no I really don't know what a cherry picker is, but that's what he calls it), the chain broke that was holding the engine. So, he says it messed up the motor and the cherry picker (borrowed). He is pretty upset about it, understandably. Plus things just keep piling up on him. Our stupid billy goat got out again overnight, and we need to get him, but he hasn't had the time yet, and I can't do it myself (I'm not even sure the two of us will be able to do so.) And not being able to deliver these feeders is making it so he's not making any money, so it is just really all adding up on him. So, if you could all have some good thoughts about him, I would really appreciate it! I hate how tough life is for him sometimes!

Well going to get outside and do some watering, hopefully we will get some rain this weekend. I did clean my pond yesterday and did some work on the plants around it.

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Callie is a cutie!

I won't be around to post the next game at 6, so I am going to go ahead and post it now. Everyone will have until 6:00 Eastern tomorrow evening to post their answer.
As soon as I post the rules I will post a photo of a candy jar full of candy corn. Your job is to guess how many pieces of candy are in the jar. I counted the candy on Saturday when I filled this jar and logged the number on a piece of paper which I placed in my desk drawer.

The rules:
1. You just get one guess. You cannot post a guess and then revise it, so be sure before you post.
2. The one who gets closest to the exact number without going over wins. If you guess more than the number in the jar, you automatically lose. (If everyone goes over, we will go with the closest number.)
3. You have to guess a unique number. Two people cannot choose the same number.
The winner wins a really nice prize, which you may have already guessed. I will be specific when I announce the winner. I could tell you now, but that would not be as much fun(for me).

Pixie, I hate that about Callie! I lost a dear Boxer in a similar way. I had a neighbor who liked to prowl the neighborhood after dark and he did not appreciate it when Boo Radley let me know he was lurking. Rat poison was what the Vet opined; a painful death for my friend. Okay. I don't have proof positive it was him, but I am confident of it.

Pix, I did not get an email from you today. Are you referring to one a few days ago? I responded at length if you are. Let me know if you did not get a response and I will try forwarding it to you. I almost felt bad about what I said, but recent posts made me think I was right all along. Maybe.

IT'S A BOY!!!.........AND...........IT'S A GIRL!!!
Yep, one of each for my daughter. That is what she was hoping for too. She is in her 26th week right now. The little boy weighs in at a whopping 1# 15oz. while the little girl is at 2# 1oz.
They said that both look healthy and active and the fact that they are so close in size is a good thing - that neither of them seems to have any obvious problems.
This makes it so much more fun for me to try to plan those flower gardens I want to make for them....now I can go bold and blue and dainty and pink! woohoo! Now to figure out what I want to put in them and go out and find them somewhere. Any suggestions? Tentatively the names will be Caitlyn JoAnne and Michael Scott....definately subject to change at this point. (she really like Cameron Scott for the boy, but her hubby doesn't like 'Cameron')
Anyway, just wanted to let you all know. If you see this in any other lists, just ignore me - I'm a proud granny-to-be and I want to share the joy!
Talk to you all soon.

Medo!

I'm going to beat you if you keep telling these girls that! She didn't answer my emails for 3 days! Sheesh! Thought she fell into a hole and couldn't climb out and even enlisted poor bunny on the search and rescue mission! I was a good girl and gave you messages and posted stuff and everything! Then my email goes on the fritz Saturday (probably caught a bug from you!!!) and she is accusing me of sabotage! Sheesh! I get no respect I tell YA!

Evening, ladies! Just popping in to let you all know that I'll be working for the next couple of nights and won't be online much. If you've sent me an email it may take me a few days to respond. Don't want to hurt any feelings. :)

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Kalena, you and your husband can share a high five! There were 265 candy corns in that jar! Congratulations!

Your prize is a whole 2nd box. You get your box from your partner, and Sandy will be sending her entire box to you.
She has been busy with a houseguest, but is waiting to hear who she is sending to. Please send your address to me and I will forward it to her with her instructions. She was a really good sport about being the "grand prize."
Medo could have had a chance to be the winner if only Tracy would keep the poor girl updated....
Thanks for another fun game!

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3

Great job, Kalena! I'm very happy for you!! Wow!!!

Well, I went to farmer's market tonight after taking about 2 months off - we just didn't have enough eggs for a while, and then it just wasn't working out with our schedules. Anyway, I got there and the guy next to me was selling canned jams! I watched him for a while, and he was really friendly to me, so I finally said to him - It was my understanding the home preserved foods were not allowed here. Did I misunderstand that? And he said they told him to bring it, when he asked about it. So..... Guess whose plan just went into overdrive? There are only 2 weeks left of farmer's market, so I am going to make the most of it! Dave will be out of town next week starting on Monday, through Wednesday or Thursday, so I will be baking and making preserves every minute I can! I am going to make lots of my strawberry kiwi preserves that everone who tries them loves. And I am going to make lots of thumbprint cookies for people to sample it on (thanks, Fishy!!) Plus, I was already planning on lots of baking, getting ready for the holidays, so watch out in my kitchen this week! I am so excited!

Fishy - did you get my email the other day about changing things? If not, please let me know, so I can resend it! Thanks, doll!

Busy, busy! Talk to you all soon!

Becki

RE: UPDATE: Ghouls Wanna have fun # 3
