Good evening, MMC!!

How are you all doing?

I feel like I got a lot accomplished today!
I did some studying, watched a lecture, did laundry, helped Adrian with some of his mailings, and finished sorting my DVD's. I made a list of all "Holiday" movies, and printed a Word document of them, and stored it in my tote with the movies. That way, when I go searching for one, I'll be able to find it much easier. I aslo alphabetized them.

It's such a nice night, that I think we'll take Harlowe for another walk.

Well, hope you're all having a great Wednesday!

See you at The Pines later!

Good evening, Christmas family

Not much going on here. It is still quite chilly outside but the temperature is supposed to start slowly getting better toward Easter. I was off today as we refinanced our house and had to close. It was a pretty good deal. It doesn't extend the mortgage any longer than it is already and it is a much lower interest rate. We will have some money to do some very needed repairs and stuff too. Tomorrow hopefully I will be back on between 5 and 6 a.m. working. At least the goobers are gone for those of you who remember those days !!

My "little man" Wishbone is doing well. I am so thankful. We were worried about Clancy so we had some blood work done and it was all normal. Hermione continues to mature. Now when we are getting ready to go somewhere all I have to do is ask her to "get in her house" and she goes right into the crate we have for her here in the living room. That is a HUGE improvement because at one time my husband would have to wrestle her into the crate. I am hoping she will be mature enough soon so we can leave her out of the crate with Wish and Clancy when we are gone.

I went to the drug store today and bought some temporary filler for my tooth. It is not a replacement for the dentist but it should help until I can get an appointment.

I have a lesson to review for my writing class and then an assignment so I am going to go for now and get started on that. On Friday the final exam will be released so we can take a look at it and get started. It sounds like it is going to be monstrous. I hope I get an A. We also have to publish a short creative work as our final assignment. I am using one of my blogs from here called "Autumn Memories" I have revised it a lot since I first wrote it for the MMC blog as we are limited to 500 words. I guess I am pretty happy with it. Of course, I am going to re-read it several more times to make sure I have done everything I can to help it.

Star - So glad you are done with Subway. xo

XMas - I really hope you are feeling better xo

Big (((((Hugs))))) to all but ESPECIALLY to:


Ella, Harlowe, Snowball, Gomez, Ophelia, Sidney, Alex, Merlin, Snickers, Victor, Daisy, Diva, Mickey, Palmer, Mouse, Bo, Chico, Meca, Alvin, Charlie, Gary, Bailey, Jerrold, Irving, Martha, Uncle Julio, Missy, Scooby, Sasha, Jacob, Cracker, Bunny B, Penny, Pocket, LuLu, Bear-Bear, Stripey, Holly, Fate Puppy (London,) Buster, Missy, Baby, Santa's Polar Bears, Sangria, O'Malley, Beau, Taz, Zema, Rizzo, Bella, Happy, Sam, Guinness, Holly Noel, Larry SR, Mama, Happy, Molly, Maggie, Jazzie, Bella, Bentley and all furkids everywhere xoxoo


I know lots of people here are tired of snow, But I just cant resist snowy Christmas scenes !!

When we're on vacation this year, and in everyday life, I'm going to take note of times I would like to have had an iPhone. If enough of those arise to make the extra monthly cost worthwhile, I'll join the 21st century. Meanwhile, when traveling I can get info in the hotel or at the airport via iPad (provided there's Wi-Fi). I can see where it would be easier to whip out an iPhone and get the same info anywhere, without regard to Wi-Fi and without the extra bulk.

BTW, you must teach me how to pack light ... I always wind up with one huge checked suitcase and a well-stocked carry-on ...
I did that for several weeks - I came up with zero times as I found I could wait on the info until I got home or I was too busy enjoying the moment to take time to record the moment. The only reason I ended up getting a cell phone (cheap model - no contract) was that my home phone went out and I got to worrying "what if I have to call the vet for Mouse" so I have one for emergencies.
