I have two cousins that are pregnant and due the same time. One is a 1st cousin that is pratically like a sister to me. Our moms are sisters so we spent tons of time together as kids. The other is a 3rd cousin from LA that lived here to be closer to some family. There's more of us here than in LA. However, the second she landed in MN she found a boy and moved far away from the family and has only shown up at one Thanksgiving dinner in the last 4 years and that's it. I've seen her family in LA more times in 4 years than I've seen her and she lives in the same state as me. Anyways.......my 1st cousin that is pregnant is having a baby shower with the entire family in a few weeks. I think the 3rd cousin is trying to compete. Those 2 talk a little in email now that they are pregnant but otherwise I don't think they really have had anything to do with each other.

My point...I don't know this girl. None of us do. I feel like she's just asking for a gift. I hate that! She's inviting the same family members to hers that my 1st cousin is but the difference is we all know my 1st cousin. She spelled my last name wrong on my invitation and my mom said she did that same on hers. I'm just pissed that I have to buy 2 baby gifts for the same week It would be different if I knew this girl It would be totally different if she had made an effort to spend time with us at family functions instead of ignoring that she was invited to be with us.

sorry...you can ignore me. I'm going to work Maybe I'll look for a baby gift on the clearance rack
We were running into that kind of thing with graduations a few years ago. My dad is one of 10 and we've never been very close to his side of the family so there are relatives who had children that we never even met and they were sending graduation invitations so it was pretty evident they only wanted a check.

I bought a long sleeve/pant one piece thingy for a boy. Original price $18.00. ARW's price of clearance plus discount = $5.20 That's all she's getting from me! It's really cute. I'm tempted to spell her name wrong on the card

Bon Ton is closing the State Street Chicago Carson, Pirie, Scott store in March of 2007....................
Can't wait to see what else is coming

I hope the person I know there can transfer to another store.........according to the article announcing this news, the associates will have to interview with the stores first.

I feel so bad for all the State Streeters...............

I can see why the darkside speaks loudly

Excellent shopping skills arw !

Things were a little wacky at work today. Everyone was in a sassy mood.

I've been laid off 4 times. My first time was in 1995 when the Minnetonka, MN Carson Pirie Scott store closed I LOVED that store!

Oh...and I love the State Street store. I've been there everytime I've ever gone to Chicago.

I've had to move stuff in and out of my office 3 times because I'm getting a new desk that apparently only one person knows how to put together .

I don't even know if I have any 3rd cousins . Before my grandfather's funeral a couple of months ago, it had been over 10 years before I saw my first cousins.

I started my Job 2 last night and I think I'm really going to like this one.

I also found out that it could be possible at Job 1 we might do 4 ten hour days when we split the shifts in a couple weeks so I could end up having 3 day weekends! In my old position ten hour days would have driven me to living in a padded room but now the day goes so fast it would be easier.
