So my sister is worried because they really can't afford to lose their insurance with my niece having to have the infusions. Hopefully they learn something more today to calm her nerves. Well I'm off to get some stuff done or maybe head back to bed. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll keep your sister & her family in my thoughts & prayers, made.

You, get some sleep

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

I went to my brother's shop and we painted the car frame, so we'll be ready to put the front end back on the car body this weekend. He took me for a ride in another car that has about the same engine as mine will have. Let's just say my brother enjoys fast cars more than I do...whew! We're going to have to tone it down a bit if Jacob is ever going to be allowed to drive it!

I hope y'all have a great day!

yes, I have been hearing the stories on the news about the planes, I guess sometimes just do not think about how it effects everyone down the line. Will be praying for them.

I feel bad I had to leave so much prep work for the morning girl but I just ran out of steam. I left her an apology note and told her to call if she needed help. I am in again at 11am but could go in sooner if needed.
Well I am tired and going to bed.
Good night all!!!

So your kids have to go to school in the snow? I can just picture your daughter looking over her shoulder. Remember when it was YOU looking over your shoulder at your mum?

Cant help feeling alittle sad though, I think of how much nicer this would have been with all my lights twinkling and my decs all still up!! why couldnt it have been like this 4 week ago!!

On the bright side Emelia has settled straight into nursery, she shouts bye mum over her shoulder as she walks in ha!! It is so strange coming home to a empty house though when Ive taken her, hopefully work will let me start a couple of hours earlier, its always nice to earn abit extra cash!!

Going to catch up on what ive missed, Have a great day all!!! x

That's why I love MCR and Live 365.

Can that be right, or do my eyes deceive me?
Is that the 300-day Window I see opening?
Do I see a 200's level count through them?
I DO!!
Do you??

Well, the weather service promised calm, 60's degree weather here yesterday.
It didn't happen.
Stayed in the 40's, with off and on again rain much of the day.
Now today, they will probably be right about it being cooler and wetter.
Oh, well. That's life.
Currently, we have 50 degrees with a light rain falling, and I doubt it will get much warmer all day.

Well, regardless of your weather, try to have a Thoroughly Thrilling Thursday, OK?
.....and do keep in mind, tomorrow is Weekend Eve once again!!

Let me be the first to say that Christmas Season will be here before we know it and we will be wishing that it would slow down!!! It will soon be Canadian Thanksgiving, Halloween, U.S. Thanksgiving, and then the beginning of the Season with the Special Posts. Time is already flying!!! Don't you just feel it?

Thank you, Christmas Town Weatherman!!! I have missed your reports and so glad that you are back with the reports on weather and pollen. Thanks, my Christmas friend.

I don't ever ever remember that happening this early.. my first 2 years in fact it was mid march before that happened. oh well hopefully the chilly temps will make that stop for now! 2weeks before I go to Utah too. Oh well I just got to work so I have to run..Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

Hope you are feeling better, Momnan. The flu is supposed to be bad this year. Take care!
