Good morning!
I am in the doctors office right now. I had to have a couple of tests done. One down, one to go. I hope they call me in soon, I want to get out of here. I didn't get to walk the dogs before I left and I still want to take them before it gets too hot. It also looks like it might rain, there are lots of clouds moving in. Anyway, not much planned for me today. My two oldest have to work and my youngest is going to do some shopping with a few of her friends in the Hamptons. Looks like I will get the house to myself for a while.
I hope everyone has a great day!

I'm just the opposite. I love cold weather, especially snow. Summer would be fine if the temp never got above 68 with low humidity. Don't like it any hotter.

Hello everyone. Starting tonight, my connection to MMC will be limited as we're going to be out and about for our anniversary! Can't wait, either! There is a cottage we've rented in a great old town north of us. There is (or used to be, I think there still is) a great antique store that has Christmas stuff out all year long. If so, I'll snap some pics to put up.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Had to work until 8:30 p.m. last night and couldn't get unwound after I got home. I finally had a cup of tea (decaf) and a few cookies and read a cookbook of gingerbread recipes, and that helped. But this morning I feel like I haven't slept. Ugh. I'm happy that it's Friday. But it's still going to seem like a l-o-n-g day to me.

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be another nice day here with a high of 80 degree's. Not much on my agenda for today. Just my daily chores around the apartment. Then I'll probably spend the rest of the day reading dan brown's new book. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!

It's been a busy week. My mom and her husband left for Montreal on Tuesday morning. It was great having them around for about five days. Kim and I are hoping to travel to the Sault mid-September. It's always good to go home at least once per year (other than Christmas).

And now, I am happy that we're only one day away from the weekend. Hooray! As most of you know, I have been dealing with a serious knee injury for about a year now. Well, I've started practicing as of late and this weekend will be my first time returning to the field. As usual, it is a two day tournament. I plan to help out and play for only one day, but if all goes well, I might be able to play both days... I just don't know if I can handle playing 7 or 8 games. It's going to be a lot of running! We shall see... Either way, I am excited to return!

The count continues to decrease and I hope that you're all excited for Hallmark's unveiling of the 2013 Keepsake Ornaments on Saturday. If I weren't away at a tournament, I would be there - first thing! Unfortunately, I will have to wait. Perhaps early next week! Such an exciting time!!

Well, I should go... It is nearing bed time. Have a great night, everyone!
I love it up in Sault, such beautiful country. It has been a couple of years since I have been up that way.
Good luck with your games!
