Where my sister lives near Burlington they just got lots and lots of rain, her basement flooded and they are working on getting that all dried out. There are low mountains all over the place there so yes, I can see them getting snow as well
I hope they get it all dried out quickly

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!
Glad you got some rest and I will hop on over to facebook shortly and look at the pictures or I might have been the one I seen but I will look!

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!
Wayne competes in our church golf tournament and they want me to join along but I never golfed! I would cause our team to lose! We have talked about going to the golf range sometime soon.

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!!

Well, I'd love to meet John Wayne, but I think even Carl can't get him to show up (he's previously booked ). So, I'd hang out with Sam Elliott if stopped by for a fired twinkie. Or, maybe Carl can get the Rock to show up and I'll bring my son...that would make his day.

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!

I need to take a look at your blogs sometime. It seems I get on here, get distracted and log out before I have time to look a little more on the forum. Hopefully I can read them real soon!

I love Mini-golf!! If we ever have an MMC convention I think we need to have a mini golf tournament. The winner gets an ornament.
