What is everyone up to today? Well, you know what I will be doing! DS and I have been up since 6 or so. DH and EA are still sleeping. I will let them sleep until whenever. That drive down is a killer, so I figure let them get caught up. I am on my second cup of coffee, about to soon start my third, plus there is a Starbucks at our resort, so I am good to go!

He just won't let you sleep in at all will he?

I'm glad today is going better than yesterday so far!!!! Have Fun!!!!!

I'm sorry to hear this, coach. I know too well how a lovable, loving, big ol' dog can get in your heart. Last month was two years for me, and I still miss my old friend.

Prayers going out to you and your buddy.

So many cute things!! Can't wait.

And I just received an order I had placed on Etsy from a shop that makes perfume oils, soaps, and Chapstick. I bought some pumpkin and pumpkin cheesecake items. And I also bought 2 other scented oils from a different shop, one is Haunted Hayride & the other is Comfort & Joy...a Christmas scent. Love them!

Can the holidays just get here already?!

Hope you all are having a great night!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be a beautiful day here with a high in the mid 70's. Not to much on the agenda for today. Just some quick cleaning to do and then I think I'm going to change the oil on my truck. Or maybe I'll just take it to carx. They are running a $20 dollar special and that's cheaper than I can buy everything. So I guess I'll just start driving in the road and see where I end up at. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

My oldest who graduated already has registered to take the LPN state board exam and is patiently waiting for an email so she can go ahead and pick her test date. In the meantime she has appointments with a couple of colleges this month to get information on transitioning from LPN to RN. She is definitely going for it.
My middle one is a little wishy-washy about the whole thing. She just completed a month of clinical work at a nursing home. I think she had a bit of a hard time with some of the things she saw and had to do there. But we are gently encouraging her to keep going. She put so much time and hard work in to it already. And next year will be different. They will be in hospitals and she will get to see and do so much more with the clinical work. She may find her niche next year.
We'll see how it goes. I may be asking you for some advice one of these days!
As far as my youngest goes, she said there is no way she is going in to the medical field. Its definitely not for everyone. She is undecided but she still has some time, she will be a senior next year.

The weather was horrible on the drive down - it rained pretty much the whole way. Once we got here, it was supposed to clear up, but it really never did. It actually thunderstormed, with some minor flooding. It got scary looking out. As the day went on, it rained off and on the whole day, so we just ordered in a pizza and got adjusted for the night. We will do fun things the rest of the week. I know we will be hitting all of their pools today and they have a little waterpark for the kids, so they want to do that too.

Well, I am off to read some of the boards. I will talk to you guys later! Hope you all have a wonderful day! It's warming up here nice and the sun is peaking through the clouds! God Bless and keep smiling!
Sounds fabulous!! Enjoy!!

Good morning, MMC!!

It's a beautiful, crisp morning here! High of 61 degrees =]

Har & I will take a walk in the rain soon, we have to be back early because UPS is delivering a bunch of packages for Adrian's work, and I need to sign for them- I missed them yesterday :/

Then, I will study for awhile & maybe watch a movie later.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
