Yes, I'm alive!

I know it's been awhile since I was on here, but things are a bit crazy lately. School started for one, will start for the other 3 once we get the paperwork all straightened out! If only I could figure out where I put Cricket's birth certificate, we could get her up and running. I keep calling about the other 2, so I may just have to call and speak to someone higher up!
I broke my left index finger, so typing has been...interesting. I had a splint on it (bought at Walmart) but my finger got all weird feeling (the padding was made of the stuff like the water noodles). So from showering and swimming with the splint on, my finger got all "weird". Now I just deal with hitting it several times a day. *sigh*
Damn! I knew I didn't get to do something today! I have to make a few calls tomorrow for the football pasta dinner Friday. We feed our boys (JV/V) the night before a game. Only pasta, meatballs, salad and bread. No snacks, no treats. Total carbs and proteins to get ready. Being sick yesterday with the migraine from hell really messed up my schedule. Then I lost several hours today. I was doing wash, checking emails, making sure things were ok with the schools, and the next thing ya know I'm getting a pick up call and it's 6pm! Lost most of a day somehow.
I've been trying to declutter. Don't laugh. Really! I am!! I'm checking some books on cash4books.net, but no real luck yet. Figure I can get a new camera at Kmart this week ($139, 14x optical zoom, and 12.2 mega pixels I think). I need it for football and to start selling on ebay and other places. Figure I can do a semi yard sale Saturday. The football game is Saturday night, so I have the morning to sell some big stuff. Just big stuff. Like a fridge, toddler bed, toddler slide, kitchen hutch, and a couple other things. Sell the little stuff online. Everytime I try to sell clothes at a yard sale I get these immigrants (my dd says Nigerian) trying to get clothes for next to nothing. Honestly, most of the stuff is marked at .25!! Can't get much cheaper than that! *sigh* I'm not looking to make a lot of money, but some extra would be nice.
I did a vendor/craft show a few weeks ago. Did ok. Handed out a bunch of flyers and hoping to get some orders. Made contacts for more vendor shows and I signed on for a vendor bingo (donating prizes and a tricky tray item). Hope to get bookings there! Should have a supply of catalogs and some package deal flyers made for that. If I work on them this weekend, I can send them out for printing so I have some to hand out. I'd like to do a couple different variations so I can do mailings to hotels, doctor offices, dentists, etc. Hmmmm. Yep, another reason to be online most of the day! lol
I lost my ATM card last week. Not sure where, so I just cancelled it and am getting a new one sent. Didn't realize how much I use that thing! Getting gas is a hassle now! lol Even had to find the new book of checks since I used the last one to get cash for the game Friday night.
Lots of printing to do tomorrow! Getting organized with my businesses. There's a few places I have to call about shows I'd like to do - hope there's openings! Better get things done before I add the others onto the schooling schedule. I was going to look for a night shift job, but not sure when I could fit in sleep. I know. It's highly overrated, but I do need some! Especially since I drive the football player to the school everyday for gym class/practice.
I'm going to go look for the birth certificate. Maybe I'll get lucky and find it so I can call tomorrow. Get her stuff and finally start her doing regular school.
