at 8:30 last night I crashed and was out until 6:30 this morning. One of those moments where the old bod just decides that's it, we are going to sleep now!

Feel much better this morning and ready to get some stuff done. Had blueberry pancakes for breakfast.

The sun is shining, brightly, looks like a nice day for a long walk

Gooooood Morning my friends!

We had a busy but very good weekend. Wayne and I rode our bikes at the lake on Saturday. I slept in on Sunday so I ended up missing church so Wayne went on without me but I really needed the sleep, we were super busy at work yesterday and glad I was rested.

Today will be sunny and in the 80's but get this, tomorrow will be in the 40's, windy and rainy!!!

My granddaughter will be here in a few minutes so I will try to stop by later. I need to stay caught up on here, I am slacking!!!

Happy Birthday, Sugar!

Have a great day everyone!

Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

Things are back to normal: Nancy feels better, the kids are in school and I'm at my desk with a strong cup of coffee. I really hate that I didn't get to play with the guys Saturday night, but family comes first. My mom and my brother called me from the park while the guys were playing (they had our kids), and I could hear the band in the background. They were doing pretty good, they just needed another guitar LOL!

I hope I can get a few things done on the Camaro this week. I would have sworn we'd be finished with the car by now, but we're pretty close to cranking it now.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be another beautiful day here in Central Indy with a high in the mid 60's. Since I wasn't really home on Saturday and slacked off yesterday, I have a lot to do today. The first think I'm giong to do though, is run to the new Harbor Freight that they just opened up a few miles away. That could be dangerous though. So I better leave the credit cards at home. I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!

Looking forward to a more normal week this week ... last week was surreal and unpredictable.

However, I enjoyed the FCC pardoning David Ortiz's remark to the city of Boston Saturday at Fenway! I'm not a big fan of that sort of language, but it needed to be said, somehow.

It's shaping up to be a busy day at the office today, so I'll say hello, good morning,
and log off to get a cup of tea stand by for action. I'll check in during the day if possible.

Hello everyone! I'm heading out to run a few errands after I finish my coffee. No big plans for today. None of the girls have to work after school so thats a good thing. Its still kind of chilly here, it was only in the 30's this morning and we will have a high of 50 degrees today. My husband did a lot of yard work this weekend, it looks great out back. Can't wait until he opens the pool, then the backyard will really look pretty. I'm going to get out there later tonight and grill burgers for dinner. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

How are you all? What's new? Anything exciting? Not a whole lot going on here. I've just been doing this and that. We took the kids to the circus last week and they loved it. We only saw about half of the performance though - about half way through took us to 9:30 pm and the kids were exhausted, which is truly way past their bedtime, so I think next year, we will do a daytime performance. Last night, we celebrated my birthday and my MIL's we a birthday meal at my in-law's house. It was nice to just relax for the family. EA liked it, because she got to the blow the candles out on our cake!

This week, I have a short week at work. I had last night off, which was nice, since I typically don't have Sundays off, then I just work up until Thursday morning, then I am off so we can take the kids to an indoor waterpark, up by Erie, Pa. They are very excited and so am I. We have to come home Saturday afternoon - it's my niece's birthday party, but they will have a blast there as well.

Nothing else is really new here - just the same ol, same ol. Just a year older! I am off to read some of the posts that I've missed, then spend the day with my family. DH and I both work tonight, so I want to get in time with him, before he leaves for work this afternoon.

Hope you all have a great day. God Bless - thinking about all of you, your families, and furbabies! Keep smiling!
Happy Birthday to you, sugar!! 🎁
It sounds like you've been having fun celebrating with your loved ones =]

Have a great week, and a wonderful time at the water park!!

(((Hugs)))
