Time will tell, but she still has the pains now. Not the best way to start off 2013 so please keep her in your prayers.

It's going to be a long day! I am exhausted so I think I am going to have to take a nap soon. Plus I have lots of work to do and a lot to prepare for starting back at school soon.

Drive safe to work and have a good day!
Praying your mom is better soon, jennifer!

Now, I was watching WALL-E this past week (I'm a big kid) and there were some scenes where WALL-E was watching a musical and dancing to it. I would really to know what that movie/ musical was so that I can watch it.

I have never read "A Christmas Carol", Moby Dick, etc... It's my plans in this year to do so as well. Its a year for me to sort of reboot my way of entertaining my intrests and also education of the classics; and I'm open to any great suggestions~
Almost anything by Shakespeare, Dante's The Inferno, and Mark Twain's works are good reads. I personally love Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. I am going to be reading the classic mysteries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the works of Jules Verne this year.

Good afternoon, friends! Hope you're all having a great day. DH is doing things in our basement, so I've only had a few hours of sleep...I m currently watching some Christmas movies on my DVR.

What is everyone up to tonight? Nothing really to do here. DH works and so do I, so my sister will be here to watch the kids.

Looking forward to tomorrow...glad it is Friday!

I'll check back later!

You only have two?

Good afternoon, MMC!

It is snowing out ~ I'm enjoying the view of the flakes coming down and deer scampering around/eating in the backyard. That is one of the things I love about when I work at home ~ I have a great view!

Yesterday I had another migraine (gone today!) and I had to work in the store. It can be a dusty place at times, but I got a lot done as my displays didn't need much straightening. When I got home, I took a three hour nap ~ I so needed it! Today I am working on paperwork. I am getting all of last month's info inputted and then I am setting up a new log for this year. It means more work as there will be three different logs I use, but I think I'll be able to keep track of things a lot better.

Well, I need to get back to work. I still have to get my computer back online and the one I am borrowing today needs to go back.

Take care, everyone, and have a most MERRY day!

hi there everyone....watching the Chipmunks movie right now...been at the doctor this morning....the sore throat is nothing serious...just a second infect on top of the old one...but still nothing that would make antibiotics necessary....still...I should use nose spray...not too often tho...drink lots of teas with honey, gargle, rest and he said it is ok for me to take pain killers against the sore throat...since it is really bad at nights....so i will be doing all of that and hope that I will be recovering soon
