Yvonne

I'm a stay-at-home-mom of 2 beautiful boys, married, and I enjoy scrapbooking and watching tv/movies. Came to the bay area in 1997 from NJ.

I need a shower after giving the kids a bath. Lol!
Guess I should get the kids up from their naps. They went to bed so late, and they could use the sleep, but dinner time is a whiny cry-fest if they don't have enough time to wake up and watch a little tv beforehand.
Why the frak am I still up?
To see the blood moon eclipse thing! Go look! - Stephen Mack
Lol! Saw it! It's awesome! I've been trying to go to bed for hours... I keep remembering to do just ONE more thing. I have a 7:00 am phone date with my friend Monika tomorrow. *yawn - Yvonne from FFHound!
This is the fastest I've completed any project. Purchased on Thursday, finished on Sunday!

Great job! - Tamara J. B.
Nice! - Stephan Planken from iPhone
*whisper* I don't want to jinx this but Luke woke up with a dry diaper and used the potty when he woke up! Happy dance over here!
Yay! - Anne Bouey
Go Luke! Yay! - Tamara J. B.
Literally, go! ;) - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Lol! THREE times yesterday! He's practically potty training himself... It's just taking a LOT of months. =) - Yvonne from FFHound!
I love the smell of ant spray in the morning. =(
Hmmm... Can I make it to IKEA and back before kinder pickup? I REALLY want to get outdoor dining furniture. =)
Can't decide which sounds better: Antpocalypse or Antmageddon. Either way, I'm kind of over it. :-/
Or! Antnado! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Any of them make me itch. Yikes. - Yolanda from Android
:( It hasn't improved at all? - Tamara J. B.
It's gotten better, but because of the rain the guy can't spray outside. We no longer have flying ants thank God! But I feel like we're playing whack a mole. Our family room carpet was loaded with them. Gross! Then the guy sprayed inside again and re sprayed the nest under the tub. Now they've attacked the kitchen counter... Twice! - Yvonne from FFHound!
:(( Thank God for no more flying ones! - Tamara J. B.
I'm upset for 2 reasons: 1- Ants and 2- I haven't invited anyone to our house in MONTHS! - Yvonne from FFHound!
carpenter ants. at least they don't eat wood, they just tunnel out places to live and generally reuse them. we've had battles with them here as well. fun. had some moderate successes driving poison bait spikes near a large pecan they sometimes use. yearly springtime population has been down alot since then. far fewer in our house the past few yrz. - Big Joe Silence
They're actually not carpenter ants we've been told. Previous owners removed part of the concrete slab to put in a bathtub (asshats), so there's just dirt under the tub. The ants are living underground and coming out a tiny crack in the wall. - Yvonne from FFHound!
URK. thatsa nogood. - Big Joe Silence
We're at a movie!

That was fun, thanks Yvonne! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Maybe I'm being a bit persnickety, but the flowers my mom received don't look like the photo. Did I get my $70 worth?

ffhound_image_1.png
Yeah, no. Definitely not. Sorry :( - Georgia
I don't think so either. :-/ - Yvonne from FFHound!
Looking at the stems in the advertisement, someone was having fun photoshopping flower heads. - Janet
Are you sure? I thought it was possible to get 10 flowers per stem! Lol! Well, my mom loves them. She says they smell amazing! Now I'm not sure it's worth pursuing. - Yvonne from FFHound!
My experience with 800flowers is that they take a day or two to look like the photo...they gotta open up a little. A little disappointing on arrival, but ok after a few days. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Different company than from where you ordered, but same MO maybe? - Shannon - GlassMistress
Oh wow. That is significantly smaller. - Yolanda
I was also kinda hoping for the green and pink ribbons. - Yvonne from FFHound!
I agree. It's definitely smaller. Glad she's happy with them anyway! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Couldn't sleep. Forgot to order flowers for my mom's birthday today, but thankfully ProFlowers sent an email to remind a procrastinator like me. Again, could've saved cash on expedited shipping. But at least it's done! *yawn Back to bed for me!
Those reminders sure have come in handy for me too. So glad that you were able to order them in time. It sucks about having to pay expedited shipping but she'll never know. ;-) - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Maybe they'll be even fresher that way! #alwayslooksforsilverlinings - vicster: full-bodied
I have the added handicap of being 3 time zones away. Glad I did it when I did because it's now 10 on the east coast! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Baby lambs!!!

Show all
Where is this? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Ardenwood Farm in Fremont. Cute, right? - Yvonne
They were so adorable! We had a great time! - Mary Carmen
Super cute! So glad you guys could meet up for a day of fun. <3 - Tamara J. B.
Mariella slept through all of the oohing and aahing over the lambs. Quite impressive. Lol! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Scott told me you guys were having a play date at Ardenwood. I was so jealous! - Stephen Mack
We will all have to go back with all the kids. - Mary Carmen
Yes! - Yvonne from FFHound!
I want to order a giant veggie pizza for dinner. Extra cheese.
On my way. - Akiva
Lol! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Oh man, I miss getting Amici's pizza in the Bay. Le sigh. - Tamara J. B.
Ordered Pizza My Heart. It's WAY past dinner time, but I didn't care. John and Luke were both sleeping as of 15 minutes ago and Logan was watching My Little Pony. Screw 6pm dinner tonight! - Yvonne
I’ve been meaning to give Pizza My Heart a shot. - Akiva
Pizza My Heart is pretty good too. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
It's good for regular crust pizza. But I really miss Patxi's deep dish. Yum!! - Yvonne from FFHound!
I’m a thin-crust guy. The thinner the better. - Akiva
Me too, Akiva. That's why I personally think Amicis has the best. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Logan was totally clowned by this commercial! http://www.hubnetwork.com/shows...
Haha. Poor Logan! :) - Tamara J. B.
He was so excited to show me the commercial. I hated to burst his bubble. - Yvonne from FFHound!
I just can't get warm. Brrrrrrr
Tried taking a bath? Sometimes, that's the only way I can get warm. - Tamara J. B.
Second Tam, except with a shower instead. Then wrapping up in warm clothes. - Jenny H. from Android
I just put on flannel pjs and fuzzy socks. Getting under the covers, too. But I like the shower into warm clothes idea for next time! (I'm just not a bath girl. But it sounds decadent.) - Yvonne from FFHound!
OMG. I just fell asleep on the couch and spilled the last bit of wine in my glass on MYSELF! Lol! Nighty night!
:( - Jenny H.
I've donated or passed along a lot of the clothing and baby items that the boys have outgrown. But there are some things I haven't been able to bring myself to just donate and instead have been trying to sell. I'm not having much luck though. :-/
The stuff I've hung on to was not cheap and I've taken excellent care of it. To ME, they're worth what I'm try to sell them for, but either there's no one interested or I'm overpricing things. - Yvonne from FFHound!
Might have more luck bartering in this economy. If you think of things you need that people might be willing to trade for, you can still get what you feel what they're worth even if you can't get it in cash. - Spidra Webster
It's getting to the point where I'm spending too much of my time posting, bumping, getting excited about empty leads, reposting, etc. that the money I'd make isn't really making it worthwhile anymore. I think I'm just going to have to suck it up, donate it, and hope it helps my taxes next year. At least there will be more room in the garage. :-( - Yvonne from FFHound!
Don't you know anyone having a baby? I got by with loaner stuff that I passed on to next new baby. Stuff went from older cousins to younger, to friends, then their friends.. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Do you have a baby/kid consignment store in your area? I've had good luck with that for the nicer stuff. - laura x from iPhone
I have been seeing so many articles recently about not buying baby items from yard sales and such because of product recalls and not being aware if them. We had a local Amish child slip and hang himself on a stroller strap. Apparently this stroller had been recalled earlier. The media really hit hard with warnings. - Janet from FFHound!
I don't know any first time moms to be out here. And none of the things I'm trying to sell would be subject to a recall (I hope!). I think I'll try a consignment store and see what I can get. Thanks for the suggestion! - Yvonne from FFHound!
And what a terrible thing to happen to a baby! So so sad! =( - Yvonne from FFHound!
The gravitational pull of my couch is too strong!!!!
When will I realize that compliments from strangers are usually lead-ins to a sales pitch? It started with 'your hair is so shiny!', it followed with an exchange of get to know you questions, it ended with 'are you familiar with NutraLite vitamins and other products?'.
I can't wait until I'm brave enough to respond with 'are you kidding me? Thanks for wasting my time.' Instead I feigned interest and made a quick escape. :-/ - Yvonne from FFHound!
mother of a friend of mine keeps flogging Herbalife on me like that. difficult to just smile and leave. - Big Joe Silence
Another girl baby born. Yay for my friend! Like a dagger to the heart for me. =(
I keep wondering if we should have gone for a third. Would we have had a girl? - Yvonne from FFHound!
Toddlerx's dad will have baby number 6, girl number 2 next month. Hard to say. - laura x
:( and *hugs* - Yolanda from Android
I'm so sorry. - Mary Carmen
:( *hugs* - Tamara J. B.
Yvonne, *hugs* I estimate it's a fifty-fifty chance. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I'm recording Solid Gold on tape from the TV old.
I'm glasses big enough to put a sticker in the corner old.
My grandma is doing much better. Talked to her this morning. She has bronchitis, plus other chronic issues, but she's lucid. I'm so grateful I got to talk to her. <3
Glad to hear! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yay! Very happy to hear she's doing better and you were able to talk to her. - Tamara J. B.
It's official! Logan is 6!
ffhound_image_0.png
Great party, Yvonne! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thanks, Stephen! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Looks awesome!! I'm so glad everything worked out. - Tamara J. B.
I've been go go go all morning... Now that I'm in the home stretch, I really just want to nap. Just for like 5 minutes. Ok, maybe like 15. Or maybe 25 tops.
sigh. Today is going to be a roller coaster. Logan's birthday party - UP! Grandma in the hospital in NJ - WAY down. Cousins had a baby girl - UP! Grandma in the hospital in NJ - down. I'm all over the place with my emotions today and it's not even 9am. :-/
*hugs* Oh wow, I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
*hugs* Sending prayers for your grandma. - Tamara J. B.
:-( - Mary Carmen
Thanks, guys. I'm of course kicking myself for not having called her 2 weeks ago when she was in the hospital. It's not looking good this time. =( Text from my mom: Hi sweetheart..grandma readamitted to hosp. Atrial fib..renal kidney fail..mentally out of it.doesn't know where she is..gout. Dad & I on way to hosp. - Yvonne from FFHound!
Oh no :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
*hugs* - Anne Bouey
Logan's birthday party at Pump It Up is later today. I'm excited and nervous about all the things that need to happen today. I hope it goes like clockwork!
Good luck and have fun! - Anne Bouey
I'm sure it'll be super fun and it will all work out. Great job planning it, super mom. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
See previous post about paying for expedited shipping! Lol! Cake topper scheduled to arrive today, need to get to Safeway before 1 so the cake person can put it on and put red icing around it. Then go back at 4 because my fridge isn't big enough. Yikes! - Yvonne from FFHound!
I am sure that Logan will love his party! - vicster: full-bodied
Cake topper is here! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Plenty of time to get to Safeway before one too! - Tamara J. B.
Yup! I thought it wouldn't be here until 12. Now to get Luke dressed and out the door. =) - Yvonne from FFHound!
So I made one of those no-sew blankets for my new nephew and tried a different fringe method than knotting. But I think I made the slits too big.
ffhound_image_0.png
I'm worried the slits will get annoying for my SIL and the baby. Now I'm thinking about cutting each fringe piece in half and knotting them. - Yvonne from FFHound!
Does anyone know if washing it will shrink up the fringe slits at all? - Yvonne from FFHound!
Any advice? - Yvonne from FFHound!
I don't believe this material shrinks. I would not find this annoying but more of a tactile draw to little hands. - Janet
I often wonder how much money I'd save in shipping costs if I could get my act together sooner and not pay for expedited shipping.
I need to put on my glasses to find my glasses. Lol!
Find them? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
There are occasional nights where I knock my glasses off the table next to my bed. When that happens, I have to put my contacts in before I can find them. - ellbeecee
I did. They were on TOP of our comforter... Hard to find among the dots. Lol! - Yvonne from FFHound!
