Good morning, friends! How are you all doing? All is well here! Just relaxing this am, after a very busy and tired day. I am caught up and ready to go though!

Happy Belated Memorial Day! How was your day yesterday? Mine was lovely! Lots of family time. I of course had to work Sunday night until yesterday morning. I got home around 8, I did some cooking, then had to have EA at parade line-up around 9:30 for baton. We marched in the parade, which she did a fabulous job. She's so cute. She doesn't do much of the routine yet - he instructor says she does it well during practice, but then during the parades, she pays attention to more what is going on around her. You don't blame her at all, only being 3. It's so cute! For any of you who are friends with me on Facebook, I posted a picture of her!

We had a picnic then after that. It was a blessed day. My mom and dad, sister and her boyfriend came. We had wonderful food and fellowship. DH made a fire later on. Around 5, I starting nodding off. The fire was making me sleepy. We were planning on doing hot dogs, mountain pies, that kind of thing, but I was really getting tired and I think the kids were too. I stayed up until around 7 and just couldn't do it anymore. I came in and did a few things around the house and hit the sack. I got up this morning around 7:30. I haven't slept that long, oh, since I can remember! Probably when I've only been sick, but I needed it.

Today, EA has preschool and we just have a lot of running around to do here later on. DS will be with us, so it will be a nice day!

Well, I am off to read some of the Countdown. I hope you're all doing well and you enjoyed the holiday yesterday. Have a great day and talk to you all later. God Bless and keep smiling!

Made...what's this talk of you leaving? You'll have a lot of people showing up at your door demanding your return! Don't do it!!!
Besides, if you leave you might make Snowflake mad enough to unleash Harlowe on you! You don't want that, my friend. From the looks of the pictures, Harlowe is a vicious stone cold killer, perhaps capable of a level of savageness the likes of which we have never seen before!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be hot here in central Indy this week so be prepared to hear me whining for a few days. Just remind me that I only have to get to the weekend. Then the high's will go back to being in the mid 70's for a few days. Not much going on here today. I opened my bedroom closet this morning and had an avalanche of winter clothes fall off the shelfs and on to me, so I guess I'll spend some time getting them all packed away. I also expect my buddy to show up so I will spend the afternoon getting more stories for my movie. Actually I think im working on the sequel now. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

I figured by now, you would have guessed that right away. He loves Jingle and Jingle and Bell. You know we can't make it a day without watching those specials!

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I'm on my second cup of coffee, trying to remember where I left off last Friday. It's bound to be a busy couple of days, since last Friday was so slow, with all of our customer taking a long weekend.

And to top it off, the only other guy here in the engineering dept. just left for the week. His wife is having a baby! He's a super young man, and this will be his third beautiful daughter.

I spend most of the day yesterday practicing my golf swing, specifically chipping. I have a pretty good drive and long iron swing, but my short game stinks. I have to say, it felt good to hold the clubs again. My brother-in-law plays every weekend, so maybe I should invite myself soon.

I hope y'all have a great day!
