Black Friday

Happy Black Friday!! I was so excited -- Target had their Black Friday ads online yesterday, so we bought 2 Garmin GPS's and lots of Leapster games. I'm SO SO excited! The GPS was the big ticket item I wanted. One of them we had sent to up north for Christmas. Yippee!! I went to Wal-Mart this morning at 5:15, after what I wanted wasn't available online (Leapster for $30 - sold out online). Unfortunately they were sold out there as well. One lady was going to give me hers, but it was pink. So my friend was in line at Kohl's and got me one there with her extra 15% off coupon. I came home around 6:15 with nothing, then took Sweet Girl with me at 7:00 and went back out to Target and Justice for girls. We then ate at Panera, stopped at Blockbuster, and was home by 11:00. So we did pretty good!
College Boy and his girlfriend went to Disneyworld today. I just talked to him and they said the lines were good and they were in line at IASW and it was a 20min. wait, their longest wait so far.
At least I don't have to cook now for awhile. We have enough leftovers for a VERY long time!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!! The College Boy is home, the desserts are done, the sweet potato casserole is finished, the stuffing is in the bird, the bird is in the oven, and all is well with the world. I'll be cooking throughout the day today, then our family will be going to the neighbor's for dessert. God Bless you and your families, and remember those who are overseas.

Merric Joseph Peart

A big congrats to the Rocket Scientist's cousin who had her little boy yesterday. Mom and son are doing great, but dad is over in Afghanistan and had to miss the birth of his son. Luckily he will be home very soon! Wish we could be there to see him! You all are in our thoughts and prayers.

Fall Festival Marketplace

Yesterday was my daughter's Fall Festival at her school, and it was the first time I had a table and sold my wares. I made mostly bottlecap necklaces for the kids, scrabble tile necklaces for kids and adults, glass marble necklaces, glass tile necklaces and handmade beautiful bracelets. It was a lot of fun, but I was SO SO sick! I'm on an antibiotic, but tomorrow I hope to get a stronger one at the doctor's. I still have that yucky chest-head-throat congestion and fever. Yuck! But I did well yesterday, and that was a big plus! Then I ate dinner with a bunch of girlfriends. Other than being sick, it was a funfilled day!

The Night Launch

Well, the shuttle launch was fantastic! Now, getting there and coming home was another story. In the shuttle traffic to the launch site, we got rear ended by a very large SUV on the interstate, who did not stop. We were stopped, and they rammed into us. We pulled over, but they didn't and that was that. We have to get it all fixed now out of pocket. Then we took the L-O-N-G way home with traffic that barely moved. TWO HOURS it took to get home. Unreal! But the kids had a great time, and were troopers in the long car ride home. Thank God for DVD players in the van!

Shuttle Launch Tomorrow

Tomorrow we are going to see a night lauch out at KSC. Night lauches are fantastic to watch. The Rocket Scientist got us a lauch pass so we can get as close as you can. Let's pray the weather cooperates.

I Voted!

Well, I was worried about long lines at the voting precincts today, and it ended up I didn't have to wait at all! I went around 10:00 this morning with no wait! That was great, because I had Little Man in tow and didn't want to have to deal with him in a long line for over an hour. Now, let's pray that God's Will will be done and the RIGHT man will be in office! This will be exciting, no matter who will be president.

On another note, my DEAR College Boy was at a (democratic) rally in Tallahassee over the weekend and got to hold a sign and was standing behind Joe Biden. Here is a picture of him. He has the FSU hoodie on and the Ray Ban Sunglasses. (who raised this boy, a bunch of Monkeys???)

Halloween and Trunk or Treat

Halloween night the kids got dressed up in their costumes. Little Man was Batman and Sweet Girl was a Cat(woman). The Rocket Scientist and I dressed up as pirates, because we participated in our church's Trunk or Treat at the local High School. Wow, was it crowded! 6000 people were there, and I believe it! Not a minute went by that one of us wasn't handing out candy. Amazing! But the church did it up well, and everyone had a great time.
