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!
It's always hard to dive into work after a long holiday weekend, isn't it?

The nice thing about this holiday week, is that you have one less work day!!

Have fun golfing!!

well, almost that time again, get to go to work!
It was raining this morning and now is getting foggy as the temperatures rise.
Hope you all have a fantastic day waiting for babies, chasing bunnies, drinking your morning coffee, hopefully feeling better and stalking those who think about leaving!

I love going to the driving range but I'm terrible. I could throw the ball further than I can hit it most of the time. So I just stick with miniature golf.

It is so nice to read through and catch up with what is going on.

Very very busy at work, they had cashiers and baggers on today,. Bagging is something the customers do for themselves, but when it get busy like this we have the cashiers bag to speed things up.

By the way, please wash those reusable bags regularly. I do not like to bag because so many of these are just disgustingly dirty and smelly...I use lots of hand sanitizer!
I know I was absent for a few days or so here and there - did I miss something? Did you get another job?

Shoot, mini-golf can get my blood pressure up quicker than 9 holes!

I have a $25 gift card from there, so when I go to the mall today, I am going to get a bunch to stock up. I know they probably won't have any Christmas scents, but at least I will have some nice scents for the summer!

Good morning, MMC!!

It's a dreary day again, here. Cool, rainy, windy, and a high of 67 degrees.

It looks like rain just about every day this week. Darn, I was hoping for some deck time.

We had a quiet Memorial Day- Adrian wasn't feeling well, so we lounged around the house. We ate well, though! We had grilled pork chops, loaded baked potatoes, and green beans. It rained & stormed most of the day.

How was your holiday?

I need to go grocery shopping today or tomorrow, study, and prepare for my cousins that come on Friday. So excited!!

Have a wonderful & blessed day, friends!!

Anyone who knows anything about dog breeds knows the Wheaten Terrier cannot be completely domesticated. It's like living with a wolf...you don't turn your back, that's for sure!

In other words, don't make the tag team of Happy and Harlowe come for you!

Congrats on getting those codes down!! I bet you'll get faster every week. You should be very proud of yourself!!

Your company is lucky to have such a dedicated employee like yourself =]
