Lots of Fun Stuff - and Photos!

October 14th, 2016 at 08:29 pm

I realize I haven't posted anything in a while - ooops!

There has been a lot going on:
- signed a contract for a new fire station addition
- working on the dollhouse (my little side project) - this is a pretty frugal hobby since I'm making everything including the wainscot out of discarded cardboard boxes (cereal boxes, kleenex boxes, etc). I attached 2 photos of the dollhouse!
- went to 7th grade options fair last night (had to bring cookies, so not a free event, but very informative); F made a spreadsheet of qualities she wants in a school and was rating the various schools. This impressed the school she wants to go to, which makes me think it's definitely the right school for her.
- tonight is friend's rehearsal dinner; I'm bringing fancy non-alcoholic drinks - not too pricey since I got them from Trader Joe's; F is in the wedding tomorrow!
- F stopped taking tennis lessons; my mom was paying for these, so no effect on the budget
- Altered the dress F is wearing tomorrow with my friend M who is an amazing seamstress; not sure how much I saved. I love M!
- reading a book from the library, as usual
- gave the recommendation forms to F's teachers for the school she wants to go to.
- did the Ropes Course at the Community College with school - OMG so scary. I attached a photo of me (on the right) and F (on the left) dangling after jumping off a tiny shaking platform.

We're supposed to go to L's house for rehearsal dinner at 4:15, so I'm going to just kick back and read a book until then. (No facebook! Too much that makes my head spin in there right now; would rather see cute photos of my friends' kids which is why I'm on it in the first place!). F had the day off school, so I took the day off, too.

    I cannot even believe that dollhouse!! I wish I had pictures of the doll furniture I made with cardboard for my kid a few years back -- you would LOL at the difference in quality and realism! Big Grin

    The doll house is amazing,but dangling on that rope is even more so in my book!

    I agree -- two amazing things! Creativity and daring!

    Your dollhouse is adorable.

    Dangling on that, I'm impressed.

    Sometimes I call Facebook Wastebook...I'm tired of my friends trying to convert someone to their political side and arguing back and forth. Then there are the two or three who use it as a bragging platform which makes me question as to whether I'm having a good life.

    You are all very sweet!

    And Facebook - I know. Ugh. I still have a lot of friends in other countries (Canada, Ireland, UK mostly) and I really want to see what they're up to/photos/etc. So I say on Facebook. And there are some groups I'm in that I love. But there's a lot of stupid stuff up there, too. Maybe there should be levels of friends? Like you could choose what you see from whom. I think this is sort of an option, but not really what I'm thinking about - more like "don't want to see anything except personal photos and status updates" or "no politics."

    Buendia, what I did was install a "news feed eradicator." So even though I keep Facebook open/check often by habit, I don't have a news feed and so if I want to see what a friend is doing, I have to go to their page and check it out. It's actually nice, instead of getting stuck in a scroll-hole, I may think "Oh, what's Christy up to" and just scroll through the past few days of her posts to see.

    If people tag me, like my posts or message me, I still get notifications, so I don't miss out on anything that directly concerns me.

    The plug-in was super easy. I'm not tech savvy and I figured it out easily. Smile
