LC did great at his kindergarten evaluation, he is ready for the next step, which also means no more paying for daycare soon.

Have a great day!!!!
So great to hear LC did well. Can't believe he will be going to kindergarten!

Hello everyone! I really hope you all are doing fine. :] I haven't been here for a while now. I missed the Christmas spirit the forum community brings even though the summer is almost here. ^^ I'm quite excited and feel very strange today because I have taken my last examination at the university this year. So I can now say that my first year at the uni is completely and oficially finished. It sounds pretty scarry actually. Before I started university 'one year' or 'four year course' had sounded as a way longer period of time. But now, I realize how quickly time actually flies. :] Majority of my new friends are leaving the town for a summer soon so it's going to be really quiet and boring without almost anyone around (because I'm not sure about my summer plans so it's really confussing me). I hope you all guys are enjoying the soon-to-come summer. If anyone is ill, I wish you to get better soon; if anyone is going through a hard time now, there will be better times soon - life is like that: full of ups and downs. Hugs to everyone. xx

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! The sun is shining and the temperature is a rising here in central Indy. We should top out around 75 this afternoon. I got up early and ran a few errands this morning so I could be home this afternoon when CAH emailed me about her mom's surgery. I promise I'll let you all know as soon as I hear from her. This stupid cough is still lingering but at least it isn't real bad when I'm up and moving. It definitely get's worse when I lay down at night though. So I guess I just won't sleep until I get completely over it. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!

Good morning, everyone! How are you all? I am well. I haven't go to reply to many of the posts, but will try later.

What are your plans for today? I have lots to do around the house, which I am going to go start now. DS is home, EA at preschool. DH is still on vacation, so he will be helping. Later this afternoon, I have an eye doctor appointment and then have parent-teacher conference for EA.

Back to work tonight I go, but then I am off Friday!!! I just got news from my mom, who also works with me, who is the Adm. Assistant of the Nursing Dept., after my vacation, I have to work 6 days in a row, because other people will be off. Blah...that stinks, but I am looking forward to the time I will be off.

Well, I am off to get stuff done! Talk to you all later! Have a great day! God Bless!

Good morning! I just wanted to drop in & say "Happy Pines Day!"

So far it's a beautiful day in Ohio! Calling for a chance of frost though Sunday night! Grrrr!

It's been a crazy week. Yesterday we buried my Aunt who lives next door to my parents - so I was blessed to be raised with my awesome Aunt/Uncle living next door. She will be missed! What a wonderful lady! A stoke took away her eyesight about 2 1/2 years ago, so now she is able to see all these beautiful spring blooming trees & flowers again (which she always loved!) She turned 90 in February, so she did have a good & long life - just wish she could live for ever. My uncle (her hubby) is 92 & going strong, so hopefully he can stay strong through all of this. He will miss her like crazy!

Congratulations to Great Aunt MerryBells! What a cutie!

Bradmac - I hope you are doing well in your cardboard box!

Made - I hope you are feeling better! Lots of icky stuff going around!

I need to scoot (I'm at work) but I hope you are all having an awesome day!!
