Is it to late for that nap? My youngest niece is staying the night and she is just wearing me out.

WOW! I have not been here in a week and when I signed in I was bombarded by lots of snowballs! I owe quite a few of you a snowball in return! Got a few private messages to return as well. I will get to them soon!

It has been busy around here, also both Wayne and I have been dealing with colds. The colds are gone but then dealing with the fatigue trying to get energy back.

My dad had us all a little scared with his health last week. He has been dealing with a mild form of leukemia for 10 years. It has been stable for about 9 years with the help of chemo he took 10 years ago. The doctor knew for sure he would have to go back on chemo with his last check up (last week) but instead he said that his blood work made a DRASTIC improvement, better than he has seen in 9 years! NO CHEMO! AMEN! He told my dad whatever he is doing to keep it up. A few of you knew about this and prayed. THANKS!

The grandkids will be here all week, Spring Break. I will be busy but try to be on here more.

I MISS YOU ALL!!!

I would love to join you on your trip to Minneapolis! Then I could eat at Hell's Kitchen and get some rosti potatoes!

I am watching a lecture in Financing. Harlowe is sleeping at my feet.

We've had a pretty quiet weekend.
I was hoping to take a trip to Minneapolis, but the weather has just been too dangerous for traveling.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! God Bless.

I'm so sorry to hear that, mgramsey. Very sad. Thoughts & prayers are with you all.

It's funny that one hour can throw your sleep schedule off entirely. I started back at college today, I was on spring break last week. My friends all have their spring break next week, so I didn't get to do much of anything. The weather was cold and snowy anyway, so I just took the time to relax when I wasn't working. I started another class today in addition to all of my others, it'll be for the remainder of the semester. According to my professors, it is the hardest class that is offered at my college. It doesn't seem too bad to me, though. It is writing intensive but I am very good at writing papers. Nothing has been exciting around here at all. My pap unfortunately seems to be getting worse each day. He lost his sense of taste and smell entirely. I am afraid he won't get both back. Like I said, it's been boring around here! I have the Bachelor finale tonight - at least something interesting is on to watch!

Xmastidings - It is awesome that you saw a house with two Christmas trees up and lit! I am jealous. I probably would have totaled my car since my mouth would have been hanging open in shock. Stay warm and cozy with that weather!

HomemakinGirl - Chicken soup sounds delicious! Today is the perfect day for that kind of food. It's chilly here and a little dreary. I hope you enjoyed your soup!

Meceka - So nice to see you around! I hope you enjoyed your morning walk!

Dawg - I am sorry you were feeling icky this morning. I hope you're feeling all better now. We have the same kind of weather here, not pleasant! I hope the day got better as it went along!

Ryan - Happy belated birthday to your son! I hope he had a wonderful day. Your dog has the best name - so festive! At least cell phone chargers aren't too expensive and easily replaced!

Made - I also love when doctor's offices have wi-fi. I must spend too much time in them, lol. I hope your niece's appointment brings her the relief she needs for the future. The poor girl needs a solution. I have been keeping her in my thoughts and prayers. Not that I am a doctor, but I think she would know if she had appendicitis. From what I heard the pain hits quickly and if she seems to be fine I am not sure if that would be it. Then again, they know and not me! Prayers of course. Praying for you too - you're so good to her and your family!

Brad - Awesome car for the parade! I am sure your vehicle stole the show. I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

Christmasstar - I am also getting bombarded by snowballs. I will get everyone back when they least expect it!! I am glad that you enjoyed your day off and were able to relax - you deserve it! I wish spring would hurry up over here! The cake that you made for your friend is absolutely stunning!

Snowflake - Happy Monday to you, too! I cannot believe you got so much snow. At least it looks pretty! Harlowe sounds absolutely adorable. I think it is so cute that she loves to run through the snow. Let us know if you can get the video uploaded! I will keep Harlowe in my thoughts that she does well with the bloodwork/shot/Frontline. I am sure she will do great. You're in my thoughts/prayers too. Don't be anxious over it!

Merrymistletoe - Sheesh, sounds like you had a busy weekend. Hope you're able to squeeze in some time to relax soon. I hope you are having a great day and that your daughter enjoys her day off!

Brent - Daylight Savings kills me, everytime. It sounds like your weekend was wonderful - I am glad that you and Kim enjoyed yourselves! Ugh to the homework. Sadly I know how that goes. I hope your assignments go very smoothly - I will keep you in my thoughts!

Maureen - It is nice to see you! I hope you're taking care of yourself!

'Tis the season - I am so sorry to hear about your parents' accident. I am glad that they are alright. Someone in my family was hit at 70 mph a couple of months ago and they were able to walk away with bruises and pains as well. It truly does put things into perspective. Praying that they heal quickly!

MerryCarey - I am also looking forward to the extra daylight in the evening. Yikes. Poor Mr! I will keep him in my thoughts that his week goes well.

Coach - Congrats again! I am praying for a healthy baby. A Christmas baby is the best gift of all!

Mcgramsey - I am so sorry to hear about your friend's son. That is so upsetting to hear. It always makes you wonder what others are thinking. I am praying for the family and yours.

CM3 - That graphic is so cute!! That is how I feel about Mondays in general. They just drag on. Been keeping you in my prayers, hope you are well!

Seawaters - Praying for you! I hope you are doing well.

To anyone else I may have forgotten, sorry, don't hate me! I went through as many pages as I could!
Thank you for thinking of us, Jennifer!!
Harlowe did very well, she's a little tough cookie =] It's me that's a worry wort!

Hope your first week back goes well, and that you enjoy your new class! I know you'll excel at it.

Keeping your Pap in my thoughts & prayers!

My tooth was a little sensitive last night to cold + sore in general and I thought I could feel a little hole when I ran my tongue on my tooth. I always take really good care of my teeth though and I have never had a cavity, so I kind of doubt and I really hope that's not it!
Hope your toothache goes away. Maybe it's just the sensitivity? I'll be keeping you in my thoughts! Too bad anesthesia is so expensive...being knocked out for dental work would be the way to go!! =)
