Ocean City

Friday we had a good time and we went to see the Christmas light display that Ocean City sets up. We also went to the best Bar/restaurant in Ocean City. We had some great wings and a few (too many) Orange Crushes. Today we cleaned the condo and packed up the car and headed to Rehoboth Beach. It is another resort town on the east coast. We did tons of shopping at the outlets. I am over 50% done my Christmas shopping. We also walked on the Boardwalk and stopped in Candy Kitchen to get my sister her favorite candy watermelon. The pictures were taken at the water fountain on the Boardwalk.

Happy Thanksgiving! I wish mine was happy. It was horrible! We didn’t go to get wings for dinner cause the place was closed. We did go to a very nice place to eat. It was pretty and the food was pretty good. I was just in a horrible mood. I looked around at all the tables and thought how horrible….all of these people don;t have any family to share the holiday with. Then it dawned on me…DUH! I am one of these people. I just wanted to be home in bed. I was so sad. I thought about all of the great thanksgivings my Mom gave to me. Next year I will spend it with lots of loved ones and I will cook. I can’t go through another horrible dinner like the one I had. I was pretty depressed all week, but that was the topper! It was just awful. The place we ate had a great view. Here are some pics:

Well this will be my last post until I return from…

Well this will be my last post until I return from Ocean City on Saturday! I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. We will be sitting in this fun bar eating wings for Thanksgiving. My sister and my Dad and I will have a good time! I am glad we are getting away! I am cooking a turkey and some stuffing and some Mac and Cheese to take with us. My mom would be proud of me. Every year since my Grandmother died my Mom takes her a bowl of “Raw Stuffing” which is Syuffing not cooked. The bread and seasonings and onions and celery. It is so good this way and it was always a family tradition to eat some before it was cooked. This afternoon I made stuffing for the first time! (not including good old stove top) I have a small bowl to take to my Grandmother’s grave and one for my Mom! I hope it turned out like hers. I also made a tray of Mac and Cheese and a tray of Stuffing for Jodi. She is cooking her first Thanksgiving Dinner this year and these are two things that were staples of our Thanksgiving dinner and I wanted her to have a piece of my Mom with her too so I am taking them over to her house now. She has been at Thanksgiving dinner with my family for the past 12 years! I hope you guys all have a great one!

My Dad got operated on today for cataracts. He did so well! We got to the Hospital by 7:00 am and I was home cooking us all breakfast by 10:30! Isn’t he cute?

This picture was taken in recovery where he was eating a cracker! My sister and I were teasing him about being scared of needles. He was, but did really well!

Knitting

I am all done two scarfs! I am so excited. I really am liking knitting. Rachel and i had cass today and they taught us how to bind off. SOO Easy! This is me in my scarf (the one I am keeping for myself):

I really am enjoying this new hobby! Here is a pic of me knitting my third scarf which will be a gift for one of my aunts for Christmas:

Happy Birthday Lauren! Today is my friend Jodi’s …

Happy Birthday Lauren! Today is my friend Jodi’s little girl’s 11th Birthday! I remember the day she was born and the Day I helped bring her home from the hospital. We are very close. I have spent many many hours babysitting her and her sister and brother. I am one of the few people Jodi trusts to watch her kids. It’s funny cause she trusted me from the start and I was only 14. I would keep Lauren over night and all day long in summer. I went to her birthday Party tonight. It was a Buffy theme! All the kids had a great time. They played some fun games. Even though my sister, Nikki and my Dad didn’t like my glasses, most people did. Lauren liked them so much she got her mom to go and get her a pair just like them. She was due for new glasses anyways.

Well I am sitting here watching the last of the leaves fall outside my window. I am also trying to finish packing. Greg and I are going to Ocean City for the day. I can’t wait. I gotta blow dry my hair so we can get outta here! We are coming back tomorrow evening to go to my friends little girl’s Birthday party. She will be 11 years old. It is so weird cause I remember her being born. I was so excited. I was at the hospital the day we brought her home and it seems like it was yesterday. She came home from the Hospital on a Tuesday and was at my Mom’s for thanksgiving that Thursday. This will be her first Thanksgiving any where besides my Mom’s house. The other day she told me how it will probally suck! I agreed with her 100%. Monday my Dad is getting operated on and the Tuesday my Sister, Dad and I are going down to Ocean City to avoid the holiday. Thanksgiving was my Mom’s favorite Holiday next to Christmas and it is just going to be too hard to manage. We were going to take a trip to Las Vegas, but since my Dad’s operation is on his eyes he can’t fly for 2 weeks. Well I better get a move on….Have a good weekend.

UGH! Yesterday I bought a computer game and I don…

UGH! Yesterday I bought a computer game and I don’t have enough space on my computer to run it. So I erased all my Cookie (along with 100’s of other things) to clear up space. Well now the game still doesn’t work and I have erased all my cookies and now need to remember tons of passwords and crap! UGh I am so mad at myself.

Today I played Mini Van Mom. I kept my friend Jodi’s 2 year old and 3 year old. I took Katelyn (3 yr. Old) to school and picked her up and Ricky (2 yr. Old) and I ran errands. God I can’t wait to be a mom. I want a Mini Van too! It drives so nice and those built in car seats are a life saver. We also watched Sleeping Beauty. I guess rates have changed since it was written. I was surprised to see blood! I had forgotten about that part.

Tomorrow I have some eBay things to mail out and I have to get my nails done. I also have to put away 100’s of clothes that I washed tonight.

My Knitting is coming along wonderful. I have finished two scarves and have started on a third. If only I knew what to do once you get to the end of the yarn. I have no idea how to finish off the scarf. I will post pictures tomorrow!

Wanna know what I hate? I hate carpet in bathrooms. I think it is just gross. There are so many germs in a bathroom and to have carpet there is just giving the germs a growing place! When I was younger I had a friend who had a carpeted bathroom and they would just get out of the tub and it would be all wet in there. EWE. I got to thinking about it last night and I think that is the grosses thing! I mean what is a guy misses (hey, it’s been known to happen) then those germs are growing in the carpet around the toilet! That is just nasty. I had a dream last night that I went out and bought carpet for my bathroom! That is why I have been thinking about it!

Shannon’s visit was great. We went to Cafe home and had a good time. Her friend was nice, but I think Rachel and I may have scared her. LOL They seemed to have a good time and my desert was so tasty! I can’t wait until Shannon comes back!

I am behind on posting. I was so good there for a while. Yesterday my friend An and I went to the mall. I haven’t been to the mall with a baby in a long long time, so I guess I forgot, but every single person in the mall looked at Carley. Most would just say awe how cute or something to that effect under thier breath, but quite a few were asking questions and all. We had a nice time. I got an oil thing for my White Barn plug in and two votive cups. After the mall I came home and started cooking. It was my week in the “dinner and NBC shows“. I made Rachel’s Inside out Cheese Burgers. MMMM were they good. Nikki enjoyed them also. I have to straighten up today since Shannon and her friend will be coming over after we go to dinner. We are going to Cafe Hon. Check out the web site! It is so “Baltimore”. I am sad that Greg can’t go with us. He doesn’t get off work until 6:00 and that is the time we are going to dinner. He tired with no avail to get off early. It just gets to crowded and the wait is too long if you go any any later then that. I feel bad though. Afterwards we are heading back to my house for desert. I am making Key Lime Bars. I hope they turn out. Well I better get going and start doing something. Have a great weekend!

I just got back from a great job interview! I am really excited. I wouldn’t start until after I got home from vacation in January, since the company doesn’t open until January 2! The lady seemed nice and I think it will be nice to work for her. She said she will call me shortly and let me know since she has a few other interviews, but she sounded really positive! I was supposed to go shopping with An (and the baby) today, but An called and the baby is sick. 😦 I went to Target last night in search of the Disney Princess Tree that Shannon emailed to me, but the ones there looked more pink them purple and didn’t come with anything in the picture, so I will need to think about it some more! It was cool though! I bought lots of Christmas stuff and I even got the awesome Wrapping paper rubbermade container! I also got my Christmas cards. I want to get started on them soon, to get them out of the way before the Christmas rush! I think I am going to finish my library book now and then go return it and pick up the new ones I have on hold!

I received a nasty comment (that I have so deleted). In it the person (without an email address or name) called me a dope and was nasty. Thank god I have the ability to remove such comments. It was in reference to my post about my flowers dying. They were outside flowers and I knew they would die soon since it is getting cold, I do realize it is freezing out, but they have lasted so long and just up and died overnight. I will miss the pretty flowers until spring!

51 Days 18 Hours 2 Minutes 34 Seconds Until my Disney Trip!

Wanna know something that sucks….Last night when I went to sleep all my flowers on my porch were full and pretty (mainly impatience) and this morning they are all dead! Two big hanging pots and two pots on the ground and they were all full and wonderful yesterday and are all completely shiviled up and dead today! I love fall and winter weather, I like being cold, but I miss my flowers!

The knitting class was great! I have been practicing today! My fingers are sore. Here is a question for you knitters out there….I am having a hard time removing the stich off of the left needle after I loop it through? I also have a hard time moving up the yarn up the left needle. Anyone have any suggestions? Last night I made a great dinner and my Dad and Laura and I watched Finding Nemo and ate. We had a roast with carrots, onions and mushrooms around it and my mom’s homemade Mac & Cheese and some Broccoli and Cheddar Garlic biscuits. It was fun. I love spending time with my Dad and sister. It seems when my Mom died I lost a big part of my family. Her sister (who I was so close to) hasn’t spoken to me. I haven’t called her, but did send a Birthday Card. My aunts kids and I have kinda lost touch too. Her two brothers didn’t speak to my sister or me at the funeral or since. I just feel like I lost so much. I think that is one of the reasons I treasure my Dad and sister so much!

Rachel and I start our knitting class on Sunday. …

Rachel and I start our knitting class on Sunday. I am so excited. We got the last two spots. When I called they only had two left so I put down the deposit for both of us with out even talking to Rachel about it. I was scared she would have changed her mind, but nah….she is as excited as I am. I love crafty stuff. I can’t wait until I can make mittens. I have small hands and all mittens I find are alwasy so big. I love mittens, they are so much warmer then gloves. I am planning on making my first project in a lovely purple…of course!

I got charged twice in the amount of $10 on my credit card for Travelocity. I had tried to order tickets through them a month or so ago, but due to problems with the airline they never were completed. I want my money back, so I am sitting on hold with the travelocity people now! They are horrible I would deffinatly use Expedia.com instead! They were great! After sitting here for 30 minutes I will get my money back! They were snotty and rude!

I got new bedroom stuff for winter. I finally got all of the pieces and put them out. I love it. Greg doesn’t understand the switch. I had to explain that it is winter and I want heavier curtains and darker colors. He likes it though. I have been enjoying my bedroom so much in the past 2 days. I got a fluffy pad to put under the sheets and now it feels like I have a pillow top. I have been sick the past few days and I am so glad the bed is so comfy. Here is a picture of my new stuff:

Last night Rachel and Brian came over and we had Dinner and a Movie. For dinner I made pasta purses stuffed with 4 cheeses and spinach and chicken all tossed with a great pesto sauce. MMM It was so good. Then we watched Finding Nemo. Greg finally showed up in the middle of Nemo. He had to work late and he was so tired when he got here that he just laid on the couch and didn’t talk or eat. He went to sleep 4.5 seconds after Rachel, Brian and that bad dog Violet left.

Rachel and I got the talking and we both discovered that the other one wants to learn to knit. We found a place near us online and are going to take classes as soon as we can. I am so excited. I want a soft purple scarf so bad! We will be taking classes at A Good Yarn. Isn’t that a cute name!

Sorry it took me so long to post. I have been busy. Friday was alot of fun. I had a good time at the sleep over. Ten 6-7 year old’s are enough to drive a girl to drink! LOL The kids has fun. Here is one of the few pictures of them sitting down:

After Bobbing for Apples, Pinning the nose on the pumpkin, Playing Hot Pumpkin and watching a movie, they all hit the hay about midnight…..but were up at 7:00 AM!

Saturday was the dedication for my Mom. It was so nice. My Aunt and I went up in front of the church and lit the Candle when My Mom’s name was called. It was hard, I still miss her SOOO much. Afterwards Greg and I went to dinner, then home to watch a movie.

Sunday was the Ice Show. I had a ball! It was Great! I am so sad the Princess show isn’t coming to our area soon. I love Ice shows. Tabitha and Sabrina had a good time too. Tabitha is the blonde and Sabrina the red head!
