Giveaways And Snow And Hellos And Thank Yous And Blogging Weekends....

This has been my entire diet for days now!
And yes! This will be a rambling and scattered post! You figured out that from the headline right? You are all keen minds today! Hi to all my sweet friends and thank you for your prayers and dear wishes. I still feel awful so will not be on here much...I am a MAJOR big baby when it comes to stomach issues. YUCK! Thank you to Billy for being so good and yes. He has been really an angel to me of late. Not that he isn't MOST of the time...well...mostly anyway...well, there are SOME days ya know...ahem. I miss you all and miss blogging and my house is a mess and I have not held up my responsibility with my Church board duties (the minutes were due Sunday and I have yet to type them...I couldn't, I swear...and I worry about being a let down. See what a foo foo head I am?). You should hear the dreams I have been having...I doubt I could even begin to write down all the details suffice to say they are wild and weird and, hm. Maybe I should not really tell anyone this. Scratch that. My dreams have all been perfectly normal. Uh huh. N.O.R.M.A.L. But what IS normal anyway? Uh oh. I can now hear Mama Gump clearly in my THAT normal? Please remember that you do NOT have to be a One Heart One World giveaway participant to enter the giveaway! I know there are a few of you, some I know very well, who have yet to enter mine. Now, perhaps you are thinking you have enough *stuff* or that Valentine's Day will be over when you get these things. There is always next year you silly head! And can we ever really have enough useless stuff? add a comment, something like, "Okay Sue, Get off my back. I entered already!" and you just might win my superdeduper, um, snazzy, exciting...okay. Pretty mundane, bordering on not much, giveaway! Yippee! And it snowed last night, about 5 inches. Not enough to keep Bill home but Grace is here and happy as can be. She is making Valentine's Day gifts and writing her class party cards. Dan is here typing up his term paper too and the pets are all under various blankets and throws. Now, no one has mentioned it in awhile and it will be Memorial Day before we know it. It WILL! Do any of you still want to try for a Memorial Day Bloggy Babe Weekend? Was St. Louis still an option that would work for the most people? Center of the country an all... I would be happy to arrange a block of rooms in a hotel if I had a general idea how many would come. Keep in mind that a room can always be canceled later, but to get a block arranged, I have to give them a general #. And then you all would have to call in and make your reservations. Any ideas or input is VERY welcome and ever so wanted. I am easy as can be, I just so want to be able to see as many of you as possible! Let me know okay? You can email me or leave a message via comment here...let's DO this thing!! I wanted to post something we saw last week during Grace's teacher meetings. I had not seen this one and loved seemed appropriate for a Wintry day like today. Thank you again for being so sweet (Not that this was a surprise to me!) Stay well and smile, a lot okay?
Love to you all. Susie Q

Glad you are somewhat better and yes, enter me in the contest, OK?? Not sure about Memorial Day weekend, but will give it some thought. I am going to SoCal in April and I need some work aka $$$ for all this travel. I'll let you know soon, tho.

Off to AZ to visit my brother the curmudgeon tomorrow(weather permitting).

Gretchen said...

I'm so glad you are feeling better, Sue! I wish I could join in on the bloggy babe weekend, but can't be away that time of the year (school plays/anniversary). However, I want to see it all shared with us in living color at Rabbit Run. blogspot. com!

Have fun planning.

Continue to feel better, Love.

Hi Sue,
Glad you are on the road to feeling better. I thought these things only lasted a couple of days. YUCK!!!
I still think it would be great fun to have a bloggy weekend, just maybe not Memorial Day weekend. I think it might be a bad travel time.
Anyway, see what everyone else thinks.
Keep cozy!

Okay, you...time to feel better!! Like now, okay?? Or, at least as soon as possible... ;)

Let me know about "the weekend"..when ever, wherever and whatever I can do to help pull it together.

Take care and know you're missed...


Cheryl Wray said...

So glad to see that you are feeling better and well enough to post!

Boy, I wish I could come join in the Blog Getaway. Sounds so FUN, but I also (like Gretchen) have an anniversary then and we are trying to find somewhere to go. If my plans change, I will let you know. Sounds TOO fun!!!

Cheryl Wray said...

And, oh yeah, enter me in the contest!!!

Sugar Bear said...

I hope you are feeling better soon miss! You need to take care of yourself - treat yourself to something fabulous when you are well - or better yet - get hubby darling to!

Indigo Robe said...

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I cannot believe it but I have not been sick at all this winter. It's as if after 13 years of teaching elementary students I have finally become immune to any germ they have tried to share with me!!!


I love that poem outline! My 3rd grade class just finished publishing that one only instead of snowman we used MITTENS. I have also used that outline changing the noun to PENCILS. It's a great poem to work with!

Get better soon!

Valerie said...

oh goody. Memorial Day won't work here, either, it's usually my mom AND my birthday weekend.

hopefully Brendan will be back on the employment list - so all can be well and normal (whatever that means!) again!

Melissa said...

I'm so glad to see you back! Looks like Memorial Day is out for most - it would work for me, but if no one else is there, what's the point? LOL!

Back to the drawing board!

Michelle said...

I'm so sorry to hear you've been feeling so sick (sweet of your hubby to update us!) Praying that you get well soon!
