Kizzy, my prayers are on the way.

HMG, my goodness, what a scary road to travel. I'm so glad you made it home safe! Poor Maggie - I pray the meds will start working for her. I hope all goes well with your daughter's doctor appointment. Take care!

Judesmama, it is going to be extremely hot and humid here in mid-Michigan, too. No heat advisory as of yet. The forecast here is for the real feel to be 105 today and progressively getting warmer through Thursday - ugh! Stay cool!!!

CAH, I'm glad Chico is getting a break from the humidity!

Made and snowflake, stay cool!!!

Good morning, MMC!

I hope this finds everyone well! I have already been out picking berries - had to beat the heat. The mosquitoes drove me in and there are still quite a few I could have picked. They are going to have to wait until Wednesday as tomorrow I have to work and run errands in town. Today I am working on some store stuff but I get to do that from home. I foresee a big pitcher of lemon water or lemon tea in my future!

Be MERRY and cool!!

The Brecon Beacons are used by all sectors in our military, from sas to territorial. This weekend was the turn of the Territorial Army, the national news are claiming that two soldiers died and one is in intensive care, but the local news on the street is that the mountain rescue brought six bodies down on saturday. We are all really shocked and the town is a somber place today. As a town which has proudly hosted the British army for many years, we are respect and support them. The bunting is hanging throughout the town ready to celebrate the birth of the new Royal, perhaps people shall see it more as a mark of respect for those who did not join us this monday morning.
how aweful, my heart goes out to you all. What a shock to the whole community.
Praying for you all ((((HUGS))))

I just realized my driver's license expired yesterday. These days, they want you life history to get a replacement. Birth certificate, SS card, copies of utility bills (to verify your address), etc. That's seriously crazy. And to top it off, I had lost my birth certificate some where along the way. Usually, that's not a big deal, but I was born in Germany while my dad was stationed there. So, I had to apply to the State Dept. for a replacement Report of Consular Birth Abroad form. It took forever (and a big check), but I finally got it last week.

I'll be glad when things settle down!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Sounds like a wonderful bday!!! Happy belated birthday!!!

Looking forward to QVC's CIJ!!!! Especially excited after seeing Valerie's sneak peeks!!

Today, I have to run out to our bank & get my application for my real estate license notarized. Then, I have a few errands to run.

Stay cool, everybody!!

Have a beautiful day!!

Glad you all made it home safe & sound.
How is your daughter feeling today?

Keeping Maggie in my prayers!! Hugs to her from Harlowe & I.

Hope you can get a napi in this afternoon.

Thank you Snowflake. I thought it was ridiculous too. I can't believe the audacity some of these kids, and parents, have! The drive there was scary. You probably did see a story about what happened, they were calling it The Gilgo Beach Murders. People still talk about it around here a lot since they never caught the killer.
My daughter is still sleeping, she skipped drivers ed today. I'm hoping she feels better when she wakes up.
I also spoke with the veterinarian and we are going to increase Maggies medicine, hopefully that will do the trick. Thank you for the prayers!
I hope you stay cool and have a wonderful day!!

Homemakingirl, I just read about the situation with your daughter and no parents wanted to pick them up. We have been there before when my kids were younger. Sometimes it's a situation where some girls are afraid to call their parents for rides home because they might get in trouble for waking them up or whatever reason so they just say their parents won't get them without even attempting to try and call. I am not saying that was the case with you but it has been with me when my kids were growing up. I am glad you are a good mom and your daughter felt comfortable calling you. That is great! In my case, and sounds like your case as well, I always told my kids and still do even though they are grown that they can call me anytime, day or night, 3 in the morning and wake me, I don't care. If it's important, I will answer!!! When they were teens and felt like they were in an unsafe situation or ever needed a ride that we will be there! I told them this every time they went anywhere. I have known parents who would yell at their kids if they dared wake them up in at night with phone calls. That is insane! My kids need to know that they can safely call me for anything at anytime if there is something important! Good for you to be there for your daughter. =)

I guess my young cousin, aged 20, caught onto this because a few months ago I got woke up at 1 am because his little doggy was sick and he needed advice! Lol. I tried to help him, he was upset.

I hope your little doggy will be okay. How old is she?

I just got a surprise! My son-in-law has already picked up the kids. He just had to clean out a moving truck today and that's it. He just informed me he has the rest of the week off because his boss is going out of town so that means I have a week long vacation! I will miss the kids but this is a much needed break. I have been running 7 days a week, babysitting, working at my job, busy at church, running errands and starting to feel very run down.

Plans for the week... REST! I also have a couple of video projects to do for church. Planning to catch up on some cleaning and organizing too. Since I am not feeling 100% today, I think I will start off with watching a Christmas movie and resting. Oh yeah, I might actually have more time to visit you all on here!!!!!!!
