Goodbye~Hello

What a week! Well I have finally come to terms with the AOL journal and I am letting it go... I don't know how many times this past week and all the countless hours I have wasted, and even Robin tried helping to migrate the old journal over and it just ain't gonna happen... I have deleted all my photos from AOL Pictures, but I think since I copied and pasted so many pictures into the journal that blogger just can't understand or handle the volume and it just freezes up at the end and won't migrate over... Of course all the pictures keep going into Picasa Album and I had at one time 153 folders of 500 pictures each (90%) in the Picasa Album... I can't believe I haven't gone over my limit, I'm wondering if they are giving us migraters a grace period to house our pictures temporarily while we migrate over... So now I have to finish deleting all those folders, that's gonna take some more time so that I'm back down to my original 16% of what I have put in the new blogs so far... But I'm ok with it, it was becoming more of just that I was gonna do it then actually wanting the journal... lol... So now I missed out on a whole week of blogging with everyone and now I'm so far behind on what everyone has been up to.... But I'm now on vacation, except Sunday morning of just going in to set up the ad, so I've got a whole week of blogging catch up time... and I didn't want to waste it agonizing over the AOL journal...
Plus this week I worked six days cause we had a visit on Wednesday that was then canceled Tuesday night but another visit is still coming when I get back from vacation.... So we are looking presentable once again and our mountain of boxes that we were behind on is now about caught up, I had a bit of help though... now just hope we don't get behind while I am on vacation... and all the mismate shoes are gone and displays are done and the floor is finally looking full again...
Son3 had a good week and is now happily playing PlayStation...
Son2 is off to spend the night at a friends and go to a Haunted Forest... they also have a haunted house and haunted hay ride but they are just going in the forest... so he was too excited and just left a few minutes ago...
We are still battling ants... of course it is high 80's and heading for the 90's again so everything thinks we are having second spring here, even the iris' are blooming again... crazy iris, lol...
My house is a disaster, although actually I got a few things done while waiting all the hours for the journal to migrate... a bit of filing, some little projects and such... the Halloween cards are almost ready to mail, just waiting for hubby to print them out at work...
We had lost the Transformer DVD in son3's room so even his room got a bit of cleaning, I'm hoping to continue while on vacation, and I even hung up his new SpongeBob curtains... The DVD was found in his underwear drawer, lol... Had fallen off the DVD player into the drawer...
I have not even been outside or taken any pictures except when we went to the pumpkin patch... I went to work on Sunday thinking I was off at 10am cause we had no hours, but when I got there discovered we had a ton of hours to get ready for the visit and I was working til 2pm... We had planned on going to the pumpkin patch plus I hadn't brought my lunch or anything thinking I was off early... So hubby had everyone ready when I got home including me some lunch and we went for about an hour... We're hoping to go again this Sunday cause we didn't get any pumpkins yet...
Hubby is still waiting to hear if he got the week off for vacation... He does get Halloween off... so we can finish getting everything ready for our yard decorating for the trick or treaters... Son2 is planning on going trick or treating with his friends, but I have talked son3 into just going on our street and then helping me hand out candy... He had more fun last year handing out candy when we got back from trick or treating then actually trick or treating... He gets tired and says he's done, lol... me and hubby say one more house, one more house........ Tomorrow I want to fix all the bags of goodies for the trick or treaters... and son2 needs to finish putting together the foam castle decoration we got... Halloween's as big as Christmas here, lol...
And with all the drama of the week I haven't even been doing my crunches or weight lifting, but I have been drinking more water and I have my yogurt everyday at lunch... I have been having ice cream every night though as hubby found these toffee ice cream bars that are soooooo good.... but the scale is still being kind...
Speaking of which what are me and son3 gonna munch on for dinner...
Happy Journaling...

I wondered where you been because usually you write daily or almost. I understand completely about the working and everything else. Glad you get vacation now. Hope hubby gets it too. You all never rest though you'll be busier than ever on vacation. Well to make you feel better we're having 40s temps over here says something about dropping into the 20s first of next week can we say SNOW because it's already raining. I think we'll get ICE on Monday evening. The fun is beginning darn I better get me some snow boots and a shovel.
Take care, Chrissie

I'm sorry you are having such problems and had to do all that. It's very frustrating for sure. I was glad to see your entry as I was wondering what happened to you. Now you have a little vacation and can catch up once more. 'On Ya' - ma

those are a lot of pictures you have!! but then you know I love your pictures so I'm glad you have so many that you share with us; its too bad we can't give you some of our space; I don't think I'd ever have enough to fill up my allotment

that haunted forest thing son2 was doing sounds like such a fun teen thing

I'm with son3; I always like passing out candy

hope you have a nice restful vacation!

It's so nice to have a catch up entry from you and hear what you've been up to. Glad you get a vacation break now. I'll be looking forward to seeing all the fun you have this week :-)

So sorry to hear things didn't work out with your AOL journal for you. I just went in and deleted mine the other day. It's over for me and I haven't and won't go back to AOL journals or anywhere else from that point on.

I miss have trick or treaters, I haven't handed any candy out since I've moved here. There are no kids, heck, there aren't any houses a child could walk from. Everything is so sparse they would have to be driven. I wish I knew someone in civilization, I would love to hand out candy.

I have spent too much time on AOL stuff this week myself. I hadn't even been writing over there for quite some time, but I had lots of stuff saved, that I didn't want to lose. Frustrating!

You are so fun, doing so much for Halloween, and here I am looking forward to it being over. My kids would LOVE your enthusiasm. Yours are really lucky....:)

I'm sorry you weren't able to migrate your journal over hon. I've been adding my pictures from photobucket with html codes. That way I don't have a limit and get frozen out of posting pictures.

Hope things come together for the vacation period. (Hugs)Indigo

Lynne said...

Busy Busy Busy! I feel you with working and all of the above, LOL. Hang in there!

Lisa said...

Yes that migration thing has been HORRIBLE. Makes me so mad at AOL and none of my pictures transferred over hardly at all from my private journal but on my public one which I made private here too they all transferred and that amazed me. LOL Halloween is as big as Christmas over there.... I know what you mean. Our neighborhood here even decorates with lights and everything and all kinds of sound machines and drama stuff set up in the yards and some guy drives around with a chainsaw dressed like Jason. LOL. It's really wild here. Our first Halloween here in KY kinda scared me LOL. Hugs,
