I am not one to have the "poor me" attitude and didn't mean to come across that way because even when things pile up I stop and remind myself, "It's a Wonderful Life"!!! I feel blessed and have a very supportive family and AWESOME husband and of course all of my MMC family! In reality, things are not that bad but I cannot help the way I feel when my family and fur children are ill and not feeling well and it all piled up on me this week.

Time to put my smart phone to use today and I will try to post from the hospital or I might send word to Made to pass along on here. You don't mind, do you Made?

Thank you everyone for starting my day off with a smile! You truly are the best people in the world!


To all of you here at MMC...



Sending another prayer for your mom, and for you. Let us know as soon as you can how she is doing.

Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends! And Happy Pinesday!

We spent most of the afternoon and evening in Statesboro after Jacob's guitar lesson (which I sat in on...fun!). Elizabeth and I "snuck" away form Nancy in the mall to find a Mother's Day present, while Nancy pretended not to notice that we were gone. Then we went to Lowe's to get some potted plants and flowers for my mom, the to Wal-Mart.

We finally got some chicken sandwiches (grilled for me) and ate them in the car in the mall parking lot. It was 9:30 before we got home! Boy, I was tired.

I just found out I have quite a bit of work to do this afternoon on my part-time business. Rats, I wanted to spray my yard.

I hope y'all have a great day!

And CAH and CAH's mom, you're certainly in my thoughts today as well.

xmas365, what a tasteless joke that guy made, and when you were doing something nice, too! Even though he didn't mean offense, he should have thought about what he was saying.

snowflake22, if you can't find out what kind of bug that is, just call it a "snallygaster." Where I grew up, that was the word for any UFB (unidentified flying bug).

Ryan, enjoy being school-assignment-free!

There really seems to be a lot of things popping at once around here. Thank heaven we have each other to share it with.
Ha!! Love it. It is officially a snallygaster!!

Ive been pushing to stay in the Kings Christmas Suite at the Christmas inn in pigeon forge. Hope she will let me choose this place. Just don't think she would be able to handle it for a full week lol.

Room Includes:
  • Bedroom with One Pillowtop King Bed
  • Sitting Room with Full Sleeper Sofa
  • In-Room Two Person Whirlpool
  • Gas Fireplace with Fully Decorated Mantel
  • 2 Decorated Christmas Trees
  • Full-Size Kitchen with Dining Bar
  • Grand Private Balcony
  • Two Flat Screen TVs & DVD Player
  • Double Vanity Sinks with Granite Countertops
  • Large Bathroom with Glass Enclosed Shower
  • Optional: Combine with a Double Queen Room, sleeps 8 people.





2 decorated trees would clinch it for me. I hope you can go there.
