I am so tired that I have just put on my jammies and will try to answer some posts tomorrow. I had typed one up for Brent and it somehow disappeared! Anyway, I can hardly wait to hear a report on the new Christmas store! So exciting! TTYT

I started to read through the posts then realized I am tired! It is almost midnight, that may be the reason.
Anyway, what ever the reason, my heart or my shoes ...wait wrong quote....

Good Morning, Friends.

Ah!
'Tis the "day between".
(Between 'Pines Day and Weekend Eve, that is.)
A time to savor the past and look forward to the future.

Yes, a time to sit back, relax, have a refreshing glass of tea with a fired twinkie, open your morning computer an read all about this:
Days to the Season: 265
Days to Christmas Day: 307
Hey, Hey, Hey! One week from today!
The 300-day Christmas Day Milestone, of course.
Yes, indeedy.

A bit nippy yesterday with rain on the way for tomorrow evening and Saturday.
Even a possible snow flurry.
We stand at 29 degrees here at the present hour.

You have a Thrilling Thursday, Christmas Season Appreciators.
And get yourself mentally ready for the weekend ahead!

Good morning, everyone. How are you all? I am doing okay. Just sitting here with the kids, letting DH sleep in. He's been working a lot, so I figured he deserves it.

Yesterday was my day off, so I start back tonight, for my first of 4 days. I'm not sure what's been going on with me lately, I sort feel like I am a slump. I thought this I wasn't going to get the "Winter Blues" and I'm not even sure if that's what it is, since winter will soon be over.

A lot is going on with a lot of my friends/co-workers right now. I know I told you about the one with cancer, but two of my friends, both are pregnant and one just found out she has a mass on her adrenal gland. She has to have emergency surgery. It can be very serious. If it would be cancer, I don't know if they will do chemo or radiation or not. My other friend, she just found her baby has a hole in it's heart, the worst kind of all and they also think the baby has Down Syndrome. They aren't concerned about the Down's, which they are very loving parents, but very concerned about the hole.

There is also another issue going on at work with one of my friends, which I really don't want to talk about on here, but it I think that is the thing, that is bugging me the most. All of the things, wrapped in one, just have me worried and have me praying for everyone that I just sort of feel "blah." I haven't been doing a whole lot extra, except for stuff with DH and the kids.

Tell me...does this sound stupid or normal. I know God only gives us things with can handle. I just sometimes don't understand why things happen the way they do, but as I said, I know he gives us what we can handle.

Sorry for the somber post, but I needed some advice. Make it a great day! Thinking of all of you and praying for all of you who needs it! God Bless and talk soon! Keep smiling!
