  1. Karen F and Karen C: I am still planning to drive. And I have a NEW SUV as of last week. Maybe that new-car smell will still be lingering by Oct 15, and this will be my first time taking it on a road trip. So fun. We'll need to set up a departure time on Thursday. Best way to contact me is a private message through Facebook, because I can't seem to get notifications to work for ScrapGirls. I usually scrap on a desktop computer, but loaded PSE onto the laptop for the trip. Now I need to put some photos and kits onto a flash drive and I'll be set for a scrapping marathon. Is there a photowalk planned?
  2. Did your leg get better, did you tear something? I was thinking about you and just wanted you to feel stronger again! Sometimes injuries take so long to heal.

      Thank you so much for asking. The MRI showed a torn meniscus and a partial tear to the MCL, which is the ligament along the inside of the knee. Doctor says the MCL will heal on its own since it has a pretty good blood supply. The meniscus, however is a different story. I've scheduled arthroscopic surgery for November 6th. Had to wait that long because of some October travel.

      It's really frustrating to me because I felt like I had finally gotten into a pretty good exercise rou...

  3. Karen F. And I are sharing a room. I booked it about a month ago.
  4. Not taking part in this challenge, but I'm totally intrigued by your layouts as I see them being added to the gallery. Beautiful layouts. So often we scrap about our children and loved ones and overlook ourselves. Thanks for sharing all the layouts. They are inspiring.
  5. Only 31! Wow! Checking in after a bit of an absence. But my son and his finance are now husband and wife and honeymooning in California. It's been a busy month and a week with a house full of company. So looking forward to a weekend for just having fun and relaxing. How many do we have total for the meet-up now? Anyone have a list?
  6. just read your overview and realized you are the same age as me, 61 and going strong with a trainer, good for you! i thought about using a trainer to help me start on weights, but not yet--I just work out on machines. Anyway, just wanted to say HI!

      I think the weight lifting is good as we age. I've tried doing it on my own like you do, but she makes me work harder than I do by myself. And having a weekly appointment keeps me accountable.

      Unfortunately, she was also pushing me to do a lot of cardio on the off days and now I've run into knee issues, which sidelined me from all of it. Seeing the orthopedic doc on Thursday. I suspect I'll be doing physical therapy before I do personal training again.

  7. Very pretty, and the pages work so well together. Congratulations on the new grandson.
  8. Hi Fellow Scrappers, I recently needed to replace my Canon printer and rather than discarding the left over ink from my old printer, I'm willing to give it away. If you have a Canon printer which uses the size 220 and 221 ink tanks, send me a PM. First one to ask gets it, and I will get your address and mail it to you at no charge. Here's what I have for you: Unopened Canon tanks: Two CLI-221Y (yellow) Two CLI-221BK (small black) One CLI-221M (magenta) Also have the following tanks which have been refilled at Costco, but are full and unopened: Two CLI-221C (cyan) One PGI-220BK (large black) Let me know if you can use it! Karen
  9. Fine to share my address. Laura, what part of Arizona have you moved to? (My husband's family all live in the Phoenix area and my son and his finance just moved out there in February.) Glad your son is taking change with a good attitude. Makes it easier on everyone. Good luck!
  10. I mailed mine this afternoon. Ahead of the deadline, but I feel "late" because all of you seemed to be done early. Can you believe my printer died in the middle of printing? So I had to invest in a new printer in order to get them finished! And of course, there was not a single printer in Best Buy that used the same ink cartridges as my last one. :-( Karen
  11. Printing today. I will have them finished by the deadline.
  12. Sounds great. There were so many posts that I really didn't know who was paired up. When it gets closer to the date, we'll coordinate departure time.
  13. Just booked my room at the Drury Inn. (Yes, I know, i'm a bit slow. Life has been crazy lately.) At this time, I'm planning on driving from St. Louis, and would be happy to take riders one way or both. Or is everyone flying? And if anyone is still looking to share a room, let me know, (on this thread, or send me a PM.) Karen
  14. Assuming that I'm driving. Would be happy to give you a ride back to STL from KC on Sunday so you don't have to buy a flight. Probably will book a room for the hotel this afternoon, but still looking for a roommate.
  15. Can't wait to see you again Lei!! 101 SLEEPS!! Can't wait to see you too Tiza!! Yeah! look at that count down!! Angie - is this the city that has the place where the guys in kilts are?? No kilts. However, Gary might have a recommendation where in KC we can find some.......... Wow--coming up FAST! Men in kilts? WHERE? ROFL To all of you who planned on jamming in PARTY BUS #2--she's temporarily been curbed. Business now puts me in Phoenix then, so I'm going to have to fly into KC from there. These are the types of Mondays that really get me going, so I'll just drown my frustration in another cup of coffee. I was looking forward to driving party van #2. I hope I haven't inconvenienced any of you. This is totally unforeseen. #Livin' the dream and trying to pay the bills. Anyone else have a party vehicle for STL to KC? I am happy to drive. Have a Toyota Avalon that easily and comfortably accommodates 4. Five if someone is willing to sit in the center back, but I don't think we have that many anyway. Not a "party van" but we can make it work. Let me know if you're in for the ride. Flexible on timing, but I'd need to be back sometime Sunday.
