Hence, this will be a potluck befitting it.
OK, I really don’t know whether either is true, but I am feeling all half-full today.
It is Monday. It is Potluck. It might as well be grand.
Please do not miss my last post: Skiing with a Four Year Old
“Skiing with a 4 year old is the winter equivalent to stopping and smelling the roses.” I can’t wait to get back to the slopes and see what this year has in store.
I went home that evening, put the kids to bed and laughed until I was crying. Not just ha-ha laughing, but seriously ROFL and I thought that was just a fancy set of initials that tended to exaggerate.
Nope. It is THAT funny.
If you haven’t been over there, start with the best of November. The first one was my favorite. See how helpful home-school groups can be?
In response to my dad’s tree house and my poor video shooting skillz:
Yep, even got vertigo and motion sickness and Extreme Narcissistic Jealousy during that video, so I KNOW it's awesome. High fives to your dad, and let me just say that now you ™ll be needing a maid, and I can help out there, you know. — Foolery
Congratulations Foolery…let the trash talkin’ in Foolery Land commence for the next 7 days.
What is Happening in the Mom Loop?
A favorite holiday recipe link-up (old or new) where I have linked my favorite Easy Potato Soup.
and a discussion on the use of Candy Canes.
As you may know, I am not the most technically-savvy person. (I also would like to say that it makes more sense if savvy was spelled with two A’s instead of two V’s…sound it out! You will agree. If course, I have the same issue with vacuum which makes more sense with two A’s vs. the out-the-blue double U, not to be confused with the W.) CRAP! Back to the subject at hand…
I usually need assistance for most off-line computer tasks. Each year when I run off my Christmas Card labels is no exception. I used to write out the names from my printed list because printing labels is hard. My husband thought I was being overly dramatic about describing the degree of difficulty so he has helped the last few years.
My list is in my Outlook address book neatly categorized as “Christmas Card List”…smart, eh?
Except, Outlook doesn’t PRINT labels. You have to send it to WORD to do that. Oh, and if you have a computer with a touch screen, the label printing function is NULL AND VOID. Turns out that touch screens are categorized as Notepad computers and it IS possible to print labels, but it requires a Ph.D and 3 hours of tedious step following to accomplish. No problem, last year blog-Stedman used his doctorate and full afternoon to good use and got me my labels. Hoooray!
This year I asked him to repeat his miracle and he did. ONLY we have upgraded my Outlook and in order to print labels I would have to upgrade my WORD as well. And to make things even more confusing, my nifty little category didn’t transfer to the new Outlook. Oh, and it is impossible so I am hand-addressing them. REALLY Microsoft?
My advice to Microsoft: Please make this easier. I suggest a “print list” and “print labels” function INSIDE Outlook where my addresses actually ARE.
What is in Holly’s Fruit Bowl?
– against all odds…it is fruit. 8 Cuties and 7 Granny Smith Apples.
Alrighty, potluck is concluding, Monday may now begin.
May your Monday be full of rant interrupting flowers.
