Yesterday I started looking at Christmas decorations on ebay! I am also looking for a snowglobe.....I'm very picky , I'll know it when I see it.....it's got to be the right one .

What are you all doing for the weekend. I'm having a quiet one. My little one was up crying from the wee hours in the morning for no reason. He fast asleep now but Im awake with my other son
Have fun looking at Christmas decorations, I hope you find the right snowglobe!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be a cool cloudy day here, with some showers moving in later tonight. No big plans for me today. Just helping my sister finish setting up the girl scout event and then tearing it all down when it's over. Then it will be back home to watch the nascar race tonight. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Having company for supper, roast, potatoes, cauliflower, homemade buns and double chocolate brownies for dessert.
Now I am relaxing for awhile and reading what you are all up to!

It was nice but instead of running my errands we did some things for her. She needed a couple of things at the mall, we went to the seamstress to have a few things altered, and we finally had her IPhone fixed. I found someone who replaced the glass for $60. I was kind of nervous about not bringing it to Apple. Thankfully it came out perfect. Anyway, my husband cut the lawn after work today and then he decided to open the pool. This is early for us but he's excited about getting the yard ready for the summer. I'm getting tired but I think I'm going to read for a little while. The girls are all at parties so I guess I'll be up for a while. I hope everyone had a happy Friday!

Good morning MMC! How's it?

Tomorrow I'm fixing my Mama her birthday dinner. I found an awesome cake on Pinterest. Well, I guess it's a cake? It's made of ice cream sandwiches, caramel, cool whip, & peanut butter cup. NO BAKING, yaay! My Mama loves ice cream & peanut butter so it was an obvious choice.

Hi everyone, I'm back. Sheeesh, It's amazing just how many posts you can get behind on in such a short time. I don't think I can ever get caught up on so if I missed anything, I'm sorry. I have had a whirlwind week myself and am so overwhelmed at the moment.

As you know, I had surgery this past week (Monday) and I am at home recovering; things are going good and I hope to be fully back on my feet within a week or two. On tuesday, My son left for the Air Force (bootcamp); he called yesterday and said everything was fine and gave us his mailing address.

We also got a call from my brother and informing us that my father was missing, the police found him unresponsive, in his car, up in Pennsylvania. They believe now that he had a stroke and got confused and drove to PA???. he is in the hospital, going thru tests and they still don't know the full extent of things.

And in the mix of everything, we are in the beginning stages of moving...

Now, when I read some of the posts here and see sometimes that some of you are having some heck of a time with everything that is happening to you all at once, I think to myself, "wow, that's awlful, and I feel so bad for them..." Now look at me, good Lord, it's almost like what possibly could go wrong is happening all at once, (I sure picked a good time to quit drinking...lol)

Well, that's my boo-hoo-hooing for the day, I feel all better now, I surelly hope that your week is alot better than mine has been. Hey, It's the weekend, It's time for some grilling and chilling.....
