I went to take a nap at 5 pm and next thing I know I am waking up at 200 am!! well at least I got some good sleep and will feel refreshed for Monday morning!!! I was rolling reading made and xmas posts I hope I did not wake the house up but man yall are funny. Now about a convention in Indy in 2015 sounds great!
I can't believe my wife got the kids down by herself without waking me up. I slept through celeb app all stars. I don't know why I don't set the DVR to record it...I have missed so many of those episodes this season and that is the only thing I watch on tv..I can't wait until Big brother 15 starts this June.I watch that every day since I buy the live feeds on the Internet. It is Addicting! anyway I have a few hours till I have to get up..I hope everyone has a great Monday morning!

Good morning!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I need to catch up with the posts here. I wanted to read last night but I fell asleep. I took the girls to the mall yesterday to do some spring clothes shopping while my husband worked on the kitchen. We're still in a mess here, but he's making progress. He tore another wall down yesterday so we had a lot of cleaning to do. He said that was the last of the demolition work. I hope so! Anyway, not too much going on here today. I have a couple of quick errands to run later. Then back home for daily chores. Have a great day!!

Good Morning, Yet-Another-Week-is-Here Friends.

Yet another week -- yet another count figure:
Days to the Season: 212
Days to Christmas Day: 254
Day after tomorrow -- SINGLE DIGITS to the 1/3 Season Milestone.
Add a day, and the 200-day Season Window opens on a 100's count landscape.
And here's a quick head's up on our NEXT Milestone: ONE MONTH from TODAY, we will be HALF WAY back to our grand and glorious Christmas Season!!
(Isn't this starting to get exciting?)

Real pleasant here yesterday, with the high in the low 70's, lots of sun and not a smidgen of precip.
Even the pollen fall took a bit of a break.
We read 62 degrees here, currently.

Ready for a Marvelous Monday, Folks?
Hey. It's ready for you!

Gabulldawg, the demolition work is making me crazy. It's that dust, it gets in to every nook and cranny of the house. I cleaned last night and woke up this morning to another layer of dust, it just keeps settling everywhere. We will be doing new wood floors too, I asked my husband to look in to the pre finished wood. This project can't finish soon enough for me!

Will you be able to have regular contact with him while he is at bootcamp?
(((HUGS))) for all of you as you travel through this new adventure.
You know, that's a good question. I have been hearing that when they all first go into bootcamp, they take away their cellphones, iphones, smartphone, etc...but, for good behavior, or a once in awhile treat, they allow for them to have them back for an hour or two at certain times. So maybe we might be able to get a call from him.

But, in the mean time, we hope that he'll be at least able to write home to keep us up to date. I know that when I went thru bootcamp in 1981, all we were able to do back then was to write letters in the evenings about an hour before the lights went out...
