Subject:furniture for sale
Time:12:04 pm.

I have 4 wooden thrones, need refinishing, but nice sturdy chairs. 25 each, obo.

I also have a sunburst brassero table. 300,. it's a huge octagon, with a metal bowl in the middle for hot coals. we always used it for storage since it's empty in the middle. very unique piece.

I also have a hutch in the same dark imposing style that will probably be available later this summer.

i can post pictures if there's any interest.

Subject:looking for a bass amp
Time:11:48 am.
Nic has some mild interest in learning to play the bass, and I have an old electric bass sitting around, but no amp.

Looks like guitar center sells the fender rumble 15 used for $40, but the shipping almost doubles it.

Anyone local have one or a similar entry model amp for under $50?

Also, I have an old midi keyboard that needs a home, I can look up the model number if somebody is interested. It's Chuck's from when he took piano lesson,s and I'm pretty sure it has full sized keys. Would also be willing to trade.

Subject:it's begining to look a bit like christmas...
Time:11:14 am.
Started moving furniture around to figure out where to put the tree. Now the front sitting room feels like a hallway, except the HUGE brassero is in the middle. I really wish my brother would move out, so he could take it with him. Need to get rid of the stacks of magazines and junk mail.

Started making paper snowflakes for the front windows. Apparently my "like this!" *fold fold fold, cut cut cut* "see!" instructions were not helpful. Marilyn got upset with me because she couldn't understand my instructions, and I've been making them so long I have no idea how to explain how to make them. A friend posted a how to video to my facebook wall, hopefully that'll help.

Then, in the OMG COLD, I went to harvest my mistletoe. I found my silver handled knife, but decided making waving it around in the dark wasn't such a good idea, and it's supposed to be gold anyway. So, I dug out my warm coat, and wandered over to my hackberry tree, and realized that most of the mistletoe was higher than I remembered. I managed to snag a small peice WITH BERRIES, and then realized I needed to be taller, so I grabbed a long peice of wood. I managed to knock some nice sized bunches loose, but they dropped to the round before Icould catch them. Finally on the third wack I managed to catch a peice, so now it's hanging above my door.

Little steps, right?

Subject:where's my holiday spirit?
Time:2:10 pm.
I have no desire to take the tree and decorations out.

I haven't baked any cookies.

I went to papersource, and didn't feel inspired to make cards.

I didn't make arrangements to have pictures of the kids done.

I'm feeling very ho hum about the gift ideas for the kids.

Don't feel like planning a menu for christmas.

But, I clearly need to get off my butt and do SOMETHING, because Lina is 3, and very excited for christmas, and for Santa to come.

Subject:Lina vs The Alphabet
Time:9:38 am.
Yesterday I picked up an alphabet puzzle for Lina, where there are pictures under where the letter goes.

Under Y there was a ball of yarn, and she told me "that's rope" and I said "it's yarn, yarn starts with Y" and she replied back "Yope starts with Y"

The Deerpark Band program is having a pancake breakfast fundraiser on 8/28 from 8am-10am at the Lakeline Applebees. Tickets are $6, and $4 of that goes directly to the band program.

It's the start of a new year, with two new band directors, and they arrived to find the budget nearly gone.

Lina is currently obsessed with letters. She asks you to draw them, and then she scribbles over them for a bit, and asks for another. E still seems to be her favorite, but she'll throw in o, a, r and a few others.

Subject:FOR SALE
Time:9:11 pm.

I have a full set, in excellent condition. If anyone is interested let me know. We're cleaning out our bookshelves, and I haven't cracked one of these open in over 10 years.

I don't think this is the type of thing half price would give me a decent price on, should I try a different used book store in town?

Subject:more phonetic signing
Time:1:11 pm.
Just now I asked Lina "where's the ball?" She pointed to it, said something between "de" and "der" and then stroked her HAIR.

Another time she was saying "kee-ca" and signing kitty, and then one day she kept saying it the same and she would sign cat followed by hat.

Kids are off in canada. Send off was easier this year.

Lina went for a 10 month weight check, she was 17lb, 7oz, which puts her up a pound and some change since ehr 9 month visit.

Her Pa came down from new york to meet her. She charmed him the entire short visit, and now she's panting at the doggie.

Why did my dog attack two of my potted plants today?

First he dug out my pineapple that was finally rooting.

Then the palm behind it that was finally recovering from when Cookie came to visit and ate it. He killed all the new starts on it and the top that had rooted after being chewed off.

He's never done anything like this before.

Nic is playing the first trumpet part in the new song. (I can't remember the name but he told me.)

Not quite the same as making first chair, but still shows a huge improvement in his playing in the past year.

(boy, do I need new kid icons, Lina doesn't even have one, and the ones for Nic and Mae are 3-4 years old.)

Subject:fuck sprint
Time:9:46 pm.
Last night I went online and ordered a new phone. I wanted something purple with gps. Chuck said get the blackberry, I was not thrilled with the idea, but figured I'd try it out anyway, insure of how the rant or lotus would hold up(one being a slider phone and the other being a flip phone.)

After mail-in rebate the new phone would be 79.99.

This morning I was telling my friend, and he said it was listed on sprint's webpage at 49.99 after rebate.

It did, but it said my order had shipped.

I called them and was told I could not have the new price. That if I did not want the phone I could refuse the delivery, but I would be charged a $35 restocking fee. Also I would not be eligible for the low price because I had already upgraded.

I got home and got the shipping notification which said they had shipped me a BLACK phone, but that there was only a restocking fee on activated phones.

Chuck calls them, because now it says it is the wrong phone(They only offer red and amethyst on the webpage, why was it saying they shipped a black one?)

The woman on the phone said that they call it black because it is almost black, but that since it is not the red one it must be the amethyst.

They told him the same thing about the fee, and then when he pointed out the email said "for activated phones" she took back her statement. Then he asked if the item had shipped yet, and she said it was still in the warehouse, but that they could not cancel the shipment.

She also stated that she could not do anything to help him, and could not transfer him to a supervisor. Eventually she transferred him to somebody in billing. She was not anymore helpful.

So, once UPS has the phone I can call them and tell them we want to refuse the shipment and see if they can just send it back before they get here. Our UPS guy puts the box down, rings the bell and gets back in his truck before we can ever get to the door. If he leaves it here we can call Sprint and they will send us a tag to ship it back. Once UPS shows it as having been delivered back to sprint we can then call them and get them to reset the upgrade option. Then I can order the phone again.

Both deals come with free overnight shipping for the new phone. So they're going to pay to overnight me the same phone twice because they can not refund the $30 to my card or credit it to our account.
