I have got to figure out how to copy a link on my phone. And go between windows without closing one.

Went to the store to pick up a few things today. Did some housework. Too hot for much else. Heh, I had a whole chicken taken out for dinner, was going to toss it in the crockpot before I went to bed this morning, but decided I didn't want to mess with it. Dakota saw I hadn't done it, so she did it. Then she told me all about how easy it was to cook something in the crockpot. Yep, it's pretty awesome.

Annual cousin sleepover is set for Saturday. 5 nieces and one nephew for sure, maybe on my last niece. It's little "adopted" bros weekend with her and he's thinking about camping. Told her if thats the case, no big, we'll set up another night for just the older girls. Anyway, now comes the struggle of where all of them will sleep, lol.

Tomorrow I'm just planning on cleaning. Oh and trying to recreate the tea shops gummy bear tea cuz little niece thinks we should have that this weekend.

Bedroom dusted, moved the fan to the other side of the bed so I don't keep running into it, refilled water bottles and gathered my kellerman books to log for donation from the foyer floor.

Not as breezy today as yesterday so now I am hot and sweaty, LOL. Just need to do the bedroom floor and it is done.

I am amazed at how less stress I feel now that I have flipped the comforter, it was really bugging me and now I feel like my bed is a nice calm place.

Nala does it every single night, even tho for half the day she is up in the top of the closet sleeping. It is really funny to watch her stalk up to the closet and sort of look in, then walk away.

So frustrated with Bank of America, for some reason there is no way to contact them other than to call!!! There is no chat option and no email option and the wait on the phone is up to 1 hour. I wonder what is going on with them, I wanted to move some money and my online banking won't go thru.

So annoying. I don't want to talk to someone I want to email and ask what is the problem!!!

I guess I will try to move money tomorrow morning and I will go and change the visa payment I have scheduled so it wont overdraft me!

Thursdays' Mission
http://www.flylady.net/c/fp.php?tzm=420

I ended by refilling some soda bottles, and went to check BofA.

I am a bit concerned because my transfer went through even tho I never got a confirmation that it was registered. I have to go and check again because I tried to enter it several times and I am afraid my money is moving all over the place.

Today will probably be laundry and taking out the recycling.

WOW, good thing I checked, the money was moved back to savings!!! I would have bounced my payment, so I transferred it again and got a vague message so I called to confirm the money was there.

Also told them they should have posted a notice since they were having trouble with online banking, and OH BY THE WAY, what happened to the chat and email options to contact you, yesterday was over an hours wait.

And what happened to the ATM that was down the street, I went to use it and it was just gone....no notice, no note just a bricked up space where it used to be.

Sort of unloaded on BofA about all my issues today, LOL. The removal of the ATM really bugs me because it was so convenient. I guess since it wasn't on a branch it was convenient for them.

I told the rep, the ones she was telling me about were not convenient, I just realized they are all attached to branch locations or I would have mentioned that I don't want to go to a branch.

Anyway, my banking is done.

Ok, laundry is in, I made myself take it down, LOL. And made a list of the things I am doing tomorrow since I was trying to delay laundry until then.

Also picked up the mail.

Best thing I ever did was to close my BOA acct back when everyone was doing bailing-out-day. Went to Homestreet bank, small bank, and have never been happier. Also got Kid Sis & Niece to sign up (Niece was thrilled that she got a $300 gift card to buy them Seahawks jerseys.)

Homestreet Bank used to just cover WA OR HI, but I believe they expanded to CA. Dipo, you might want to check them out. Just to show you how friendly they are:

1) I just call, get instant friendly person rep. I could use their online banking but I enjoy talking to nice people

2) free popcorn bags on Friday, I schedule Kid Sis' deposits or bank business for Fri because it tastes like movie theater popcorn,

3) instead of maintaining their landscape around their building, they turned it into a P-Patch of sorts. Employees on their free time could garden to their hearts' content, then the surplus was turned over to the neighborhood foodbank.

4) even during the Great Recession, instead of deer-in-the-headlights look, whenever I went in to the bank ALL the employees had contented, smiles on the faces.

Like I said, I've never regretted, so check it out.

ETA: Kid Sis & Niece use the ATM at the casino where she works parttime. The fees aren't an issue since Homestreet refunds the fees each month.

OH, normally I love BofA; I have a lot of accounts with them and don't really have any problems. It is a rare occurrence for me.

But I do have a second account at F&M bank for the sole purpose that they are within walking distance and have an ATM machine. I need to send some money over there.

Friday's Mission
http://www.flylady.net/c/fp.php?tzm=420

I managed to water the plants last night, and today I have lunch with my girlfriend and then a quick stop at TJ's for some stuff. I need some birthday cards, this is a big birthday month for me.

After that probably not much cleaning. Oh I did take out the recycling and boxes yesterday as well.

I've been spending more time outside at night since its nice out, and using my phone instead of computer. Not super fond of typing on the phone, lol, so not posting as much. Thanks for posting the missions, Dipo.

Been keeping busy doing the usual...housework, laundry, repeat. Did that and some shopping today.

Kids, and it is the 7, will be here tomorrow. Neighbor invited them to come swimming. Kota mentioned having 7 kids, neighbor paused and then said, cool! I said it will depend on how they are behaving, if they are good, I might take them for a bit. Being hyper, which they tend to do when all are toghther, ain't no way I'm subjecting the nice neighbor to a bunch of rowdy monsters, lol.

LOL, I wondered if you were away from your computer. Can't imagine that many kids running around, hope they are good at the pool.

I have done some hand-wash dishes, and did a quick clean up of the kitchen. Got rid of a box, not much else planned.

Heh, the kids were good enough, and polite enough, that the neighbor invited all of them to come back next weekend. I'm not so much for that, lol. I love the kids, and I love having them here, but having all of them is a bit much and why I only do it once or twice a year. I prefer them in smaller groups. Not only is it wuieter, but I can spend more time with each one when only 2 or 3 are here instead of all of them.

For instance, my littlest niece, who just turned 4, totally made my day when she told me she loves dragons. This is a new love for her and I am excited. She was showing me her dragon book, and we are not talking those cute dragon tales dragons, but ferocious fire breathing dragons! If there were fewer kids, I'd pull out my various dragons, and books, to show her. So, I'll wait til next time she is here when its less hectic and show her....and I promised I'd dress up in a blanket with her and run around the house flapping my wings and roaring and playing dragon.

On the other hand, I do love it that I can get all of them together and they have fun. And that Caleb, Kota and my older nieces take the responsibilty of being the "big kids" seriously and spend the day playing and talking with the younger kids.

Monday's Mission
http://www.flylady.net/c/fp.php?tzm=420

I have a ton of office stuff to work on today, it is board meeting week.

I need to sign checks, update spreadsheets, get through my own mail, LOL. I ran the dishwasher last night so need to unload, and my balcony could use a good sweep and water/groom the plants.

The house is still looking pretty good so just some basic clean up.

Got the dishwasher unloaded, put away all the hand washed dishes, refilled water bottles, refreshed the bird bath and neatened the balcony. Still need to sweep out there.

Think I will add mop the kitchen to my list, now to clear my email.

Seeing you signing checks, I need stamps this week! LOL, thanks, Dipo.

Sleepover was a success. In fact after my nephew and his 2 sisters went home, the other 4 girls asked to stay last night.

Today has been a fairly quiet day. Did the rwst of the laundry, cleaned up the kitchen and called it a day. The weather was beautiful...86 was the high, cloudy, slight breeze and a teeny, tiny bit of rain. After weeks of high 90's and 100+, it was too nice to be cooped up inside, so I spent a great deal of the afternoon on the porch.

Tomorrow's plans...balance checkbook, pay some bills and work up a grocery list for shopping later this week. Havent decided what else.

Got the checks signed and mailed, took out trash and then got all my mail opened and dealt with. Refilled some soda bottles and I finally managed to get the deck swept, it was a mess, LOL.

Today I still have spreadsheets and other stuff to do for the board meeting tomorrow, and tonight I am meeting up with my former workmates for a catch up and cocktails.

Eh, I think ever so often we all need to have those types of day, Dipo. I' m glad you had fun.

Since my fridge is embarrassingly empty today...seriously, I have 2 carrots, a tub of butter, some bottles of water, and a jar of ice tea...and I'm planning some grocery shopping tomorrow, I decided this was a fabulous day to tear apart the fridge and clean it. It's so sparkely and clean right now. And very empty.

Cleaned up the kitchen, balanced the checkbook and will pay bills a little later when everyone goes to bed and its quiet. Oh, Darren will pick up my stamps tomorrow on his qay home.

Only plans tom is shopping. Meat prices seem to have gone up, especially red meat and we don't eat much of that so its weird I've noticed. Anyway I plan to shop around tomorrow, see what sales I see or if its just Costco. Oh, fish too seems more lately.

Oh, I must have a bank statement to balance so I will look for it. Other than that I need to do condo stuff for my meeting tonight.

Also need to run down some recycling, noticed the bag is getting full, oh and the newspaper basket is about to overflow, LOL.

Funny you should mention meat prices going up, I noticed a little while ago, I think around 4th of July, that everything seemed to be higher, but I put that off to the holiday weekend. I wonder if prices do go up because of the summer.
