Snow has arrived. It's a bit late and it took me twice as long to get to work this morning, but I still love it.

That just stinks. I hate that kind of "music" in the first place but to HAVE to listen to it....Geesh...

I have not been on here since Saturday morning. A lot going on, good stuff! Wayne went ahead and got his bike Saturday so we went riding for quite awhile. It was so much fun that at one time we were going to come back home but I told him I don't want to so we passed the house up and just kept riding! We then went out to lunch, came home and rode our bikes again!

Saturday night was Greasy Skillet. Church, work and Super Bowl on Sunday. Go Ravens! Now that the Super Bowl is over I am back to the Cowboys and wearing my Cowboys t-shirt today. I just wanted to support Wayne and his team. What an emotionally draining game, phew, that was a close one!!! I sure enjoyed the glow on Wayne's face last night when they won!!!

My granddaughter and I took our bikes out today and rode around a bit. Then some neighbors a few houses down had thrown out a porch swing (the kind on a stand). The only thing wrong with it was a broken board on it. My son and I carried it home and he helped me fix it by replacing the piece of wood and painted it. It was nice hanging out with my son and working on it together. It is sturdy and looks great now! Now my son and I can get into repairing furniture together! =)

You can tell the weather has been really nice around here with everything going on! I will try to stop by more often, just a lot going on right now.

Have a Merry Night my Christmas friends!!!

Sounds like a wonderful day CAH !!! xo

Oh Seawaters...........I don't know what to say. I am so sorry and worried for you. The only thing I know to do is pray for the situation. (((((((HUGS)))))))

Total and COMPLETE IDIOCY !!! When we have had to deal with OPERS, which is my husband's retirement, it is similar. The only difference is he always gets a different answer to the same question, depending on the rep he gets. Could not get a straight answer as to exactly what they are doing or when they are doing it to the health insurance.....

We had my bro-in-law over for dinner, he comes over once a week to spend time with his nephews, he loves them and they just admire him.
I should head to sleep soon, just had to visit the greatest place on the web before.

Good night everyone.

I am so glad you have found a place where LC will be more comfortable !!! xo Hope he likes it !
