That was what I was worried about at the PTA meeting last week when my grandson got his award. I wanted to see him get his award but I didn't know how much talking was going to go on afterward. I told my mom, "I got to get home in time for the X-Factor"! Ha ha! It actually didn't drag on too long and I got home way before it came on.

I'm so drowsy and slow today. I'm in one of those modes where I have various projects going on at home, so going to work takes time and energy away from getting them done! So I was plugging along on an audio project last night before getting a late dinner and hitting the sack. More tonight after work, plus some paperwork to fill out and sign.

Crown: Have a great trip, and I hope you get there this week!

Try the vanilla flavor---tastes like vanilla ice cream. Sugar-cookie flavor is good, too. I've never tried the plain stuff.

Some late changing trees like my bradford pears where changing the first week of december...I wonder how this year will shape up,I have lost a few trees from the drought I just hope its not for good. But I am having fun looking back over last years goings on. I need to get busy and start decorating...I have a neighbour who is very religous and will think it is the worst thing I am skipping church to decorate the yard for halloween!!! have a great day all!
If they are very religous, then they should be thanking you tee hee you are warding off the evil spirts - tee hee

I going to take a pizza dip for work tonight too - I feeling generous! I hope everyone is having a great day. I'm watching the Steelers game right now and they're not looking so hot. Have a great day everyone!

Sounds like what my Pastor sets up at the end of Oct, it is called Shepherds Day.

Uuuugh. Car trouble AGAIN. This weekend I went camping and near the exit someone was blocking the road, loading a trailer. I thought "well, I'll be nice and go around in the grass/leaves so they don't have to move." BAD IDEA. I hit something and now my VW has a piece of metal almost dragging the ground. Apparently something with the suspension came loose. It's not crucial, obviously since I drove it from Chattanooga to Knoxville like this, but every time I hit a bump this piece of metal drags a little. I'm taking it to the shop today or tomorrow so it's not a huge deal but it's just more of a hassle. I just got the car back a month ago after having to have the transmission replaced. Booooooo.

I was finally able to get a couple of pictures to upload so if you wish to see a picture of the bear cub we saw at our house, you can look see it on my profile in the photo album.

Have a great everyone.
