Here's another one:



Go to Google Images and google "cinemagraph," and you'll see more of this type of thing. They're animated GIFs.

Wrapping paper, ornaments, lights, garland, wreath, Christmas tree, and other goodies. Take some, take all.

Please reply with times you can pick up.

I told her I would take it all! Now just waiting for an answer.


I hope you get it!!!!!

I am doing well, still trying to recover from our super busy week that just passed. I had hoped things would slow down for me after my daughters prom and graduation but there is never a dull moment in this house. Always something to do or somewhere to be. But its all good. I just wish I had more time to post here. I feel like everytime I start to type something I have to stop to do something, lol. But I read the countdown when ever I can so I know whats going on with all of you. I read from my phone when I'm walking the dogs or waiting in my car for my daughter to get out of work or even on line in the supermarket!
Anyway, typical day here. Daily chores and errands. My youngest started drivers ed yesterday and that will be everyday for about a month. I'm hoping she does well with the instructor because I am still a nervous wreck when I drive with her.
Nothing else is really new with me. I am still exhausted all of the time, I assume its from lack of sleep. I know I mentioned that I went for my physical and blood work and everything was good. I am scheduled for an echocardiogram this Wednesday morning so hopefully that will go well too.
I hope everyone is doing great and has a wonderful day!!!


It's good to see you HMG!!!!!!! Praying the test goes well for you and that you can squeeze a nap in!!!!!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be hot here in central Indy today with a high of 90 and high humidty. Am I starting to sound like a broken record yet? Not quite sure what's on my agenda for today. I need to cut my hair because it's starting to curl. Plus you can really start to see the gray in it. So it's time to cut it all off for the summer. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Ryan I'm very grateful for your son's service to our country! He's a hero, and so are all of you as I know soldiers' families also make sacrifices for our freedom. Your son, and you all, are awesome! Thank you so much Ryan! It is people like yourself, that know and appreciate what sacrifices we (Active duty Military) are willing to give up and do by volunteering for our country, to help protect and to keep our liberties and the freedoms that we have.

snowflake22 What an amazing experience, xmastidings!! I can tell that you're one proud Papa!! I really am SF, I'm beaming right now...

Enjoy your family time with him. We sure will! As soon as I saw him home, I gave him a big embrace and told him "welcome home son, I missed you"

((Hugs))

Meceka Congratulations to your son! Thank you so much Meceka!

Bradmac I know you're proud of him, but I know you're glad he's at home for a few days, too. Oh, I've really missed him and glad he's home. It's a good feeling to walk down the hallway at night and see him safe and sound asleep in his bed (even at 20 years old), the feelings I have are always there...

Please let him know how much I appreciate his service, too! I sure did, I told him that he got congratulated by a Mayor in Georgia and he said "that's really cool, tell him I said thanks!"

made582 Congrats to your son and I'm glad to hear that you made it on and off the plane okay!!!!!!!! Thank you Made! Yup, I made it to and fro all due to the assistance of a Zanax and half an Ambian... I slept right thru the whole flight.... Lisa said I woke up when we got back here to Baltimore and said "Were here already?..."

Seawaters What a special experience for him and you. I remember when my brother graduated boot camp. I teared up a lot that weekend. Well, to be honest Seawaters, I did as well. A couple of times, I had to do everything I could to hold them back. I was so happy to see him and also sooo very proud of him....

Christmasstar you must be so proud of him! yes, I sure am Star. He's grown up and before my eyes, I am seeing a man grow from that little boy that used to say endlessly da-da... Now it's, "Hey pops..."

Festive Spirit Congratulations on your son's success, what an extraordinary moment that must have been for him and all of you. Thank you very much! It sure was, memories of a lifetime for us... I loved the whole experience; but I'm sure he couldn't say that, LOL... especially when he got Tear gassed, did KP duty, got all his shots, (the peanut butter shot - Oh I remember that one, that hurt for 3 days), chemical warfare training, etc...

Thank you everyone for all of your thoughts, prayers, well wishes and kind words. You are all very kind, supportative, thoughtful and sincere friends and it's always so nice to know that you all care... Thank you~
