Cue the Hallelujah Chorus...

...because I'm finished with my project!!! Well, technically, I'm 95% finished. I just need to do one final proof and get it to the printer on Monday. It turned out fabulous! If you're wondering, my project has been the yearbook at the girls' school. I'm the coordinator. It's a big project that rises to nightmarish levels when you BEGIN in April. 


...I'm not in charge of that project next year. Three years was long enough. I am determined to finish well, but I'm gladly passing the baton to two friends next year.


...my fridge and pantry are full after a busy day of grocery shopping!


...Joanne brought me two new zippys today to replace the ones that were in my purse when it was stolen. I got the two on the left. They're super cute! Was bummed that she delivered them to my door and I wasn't even home to see her. 
...I got my replacement debit card in the mail! Of course it was after I wrote 4 checks at 4 different grocery stores today. Does anyone write checks anymore???


And, I have nothing on the agenda for the weekend. It's going to be another dreary and cold one, so my plan is to stay in my pjs tomorrow and READ!!!

So glady-glad-glad that you are DONE! I've missed having you around here. I'm sure the yearbook is over the top GREAT!

Cathy said...

hip hip hooray!! will we be seeing a little more of you on your blog now, perhaps?:)

oh and personally the person in front of me writing checks always extracts a sigh (not an audible one, of course). Did you feel like the person in that commercial where everyone's in a cafeteria line swiping their card really fast and then someone trys to pay with cash and everyone crashes into one another. Have I made you feel ANY better about having to write those checks? probably not. my bad. Did I just say, "my bad"????

The only checks I write are to the school for lunches and field trips. And to my babysitters.

I am the debit card queen.

Cold and dreary? I'm so sorry!! My mom wanted me to drive back with her next week and I told her I was DEFINITELY waiting until it was WARM there. :) So I'll catch ya this summer.

Gretchen said...

Very sweet zippies. What a thoughtful gift. Yeah, other than tuition, geetar lessons, and church, I'm not a check writer. And thus my offering and is often late because the check book is usually at home in the bill drawer.

Enjoy your cuddled up weekend.

Well done you, on the yearbook!

Good for you on the yearbook! That is a HUGE project. They don't do those here except for high school, which makes me sad.

I never used to write checks, but there a some places here that don't take credit/debit cards. I'm not sure what that's about!

You know what I think would be fun? To have a "Girlfriends Who Read" party. I'd love to sit around with friends and read books and eat snacks. Only reading addicts should come because we can't stop to entertain those who don't know how to get completely engrossed in a good book. We'd stop and talk over snacks for a little while but then get back to our books. This probably is only a good idea to me.

Hooray for being done with the yearbook! I know that is a load off!

And I still write checks....only because they float longer than the debit card. I like to keep the bank balance high for as long as possible!!! :)

That's really nice of Joanne (:

Cathy said...

In reply to snoodlings...I would TOTALLY sign up for that club! Confession: I'm a bookworm. (when I have time to be)

We lived in Alabama for 4 years with out ever buying a box of checks. I use debt, bank bill pay or cash. I went to pay our rent today and had to go back to the house to get my checkbook.

Lauren Kelly said...

YAY for completed projects!!!!!!! :O) Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my friend!!

Tiffani said...

what a relief! so proud of you for having perseverance and tenacity (how do you those "life skill" words??)

I am so hoping to have "your" weekend here in Georgia too!

His Girl said...

checks? I only write those when I have to these days... in fact, I quit carrying a checkbook and just put a couple of checks in my wallet for emergencies.

cuuuute zippy bags. makes me think I might need one of those thingies!
