Hi !!! I have fallen behind considerably with posts I must say. I hope you all are doing good. I can't really believe it is now 5 months till christmas day and even less than that to the start of the season!

I have benn thinking alot about Halloween now. I saw some paper lantern bags in the bargain shop the other morning. they are sold as part of summer decorations. You put sand or pebbles in it along with a tealight candle and put them in the garden. I was thinking they would look great lining my pathway on Halloween night. They are all white so it should be easy to add a little something to it to make it Halloween themed. I am so excited Autumn is my favourite season. This year I really want to put more effort into decorating the front garden. No one else does much on our street so it will be a treat for the little ones in the neighbourhood.

Forgot to mention that I did have a dream last night that there was an MMC convention! The dream was funny. Long story short, I was looking for everyone and came across Made. We decided to get something to eat and went to the restaurant on top of the hotel (it was a very tall building). The restaurant was very posh and fancy, and I was trying to find ways to tell Made I couldn't afford to eat there, but he was insistent we stay. Not sure why I dreamed that...maybe because we were talking about eating yesterday!
It was a very funny dream. I guess Made is Mr. Uppity Fancy Pants.

I tried a couple rounds last night, and it was fun! I don't normally like against-the-clock games, but I'm okay with this one.

There is a lot that Adrian and I are trying to accomplish before he leaves on his next business trip, so today has been quite crazy!

We've been without Internet and phones, had modem issues, I haven't been feeling well, and Adrian has been extra busy at work but couldn't get things done because of the computer issues. Basically, it's just been one of those tough weeks so far. We'll survive, we always do!

I have a meeting with a broker tomorrow, so trying to prepare for that as well.

Hope all is well with you guys. Sending lots of hugs!!

xx

I am feeling very tired. I'm going to read for a little while and then get some sleep. I have a doctor appointment in the morning. I will finally get the results for the food allergy tests. They didn't tell me much over the phone. All the receptionist said was that I had to come in to speak with the doctor because I have multiple food allergies. Blah.
Anyway, my daughter got some good news today. She passed her exam. She is a licensed practical nurse. We are so proud of her. She will be going back to school next month and is hoping to eventually transition in to an RN program.
Have a great night everyone, sweet dreams!

Congrats to your daughter! Sorry to hear about your food allergies! Hopefully they can be easily brought under control!!

Did you see me??? That was so fun even though it got so c-c-c-cold out there!!

What a fun evening. We got a bloopers DVD while we were at B&N, and it's one of the best I've seen. Good to excellent source prints, and plenty of breakups we hadn't seen before. Usually it's a bunch of the same old outtakes, but plenty of surprises in this one! We didn't get through the whole thing, so there'll be more to enjoy tomorrow. There were even two bloopers from "Christmas in Connecticut"!

At least i still have a job, there are 4 people loosing their jobs and only the 1 vacancy so 3 of them will loose their jobs

Day 3 of the school hols and the girls are complaining they are bored ha!! going to ask them what they want to do today, either swimming or park!

Hope your all well!! have a great day xx
Sorry to hear you won't be getting the hours you were looking fwd too! Maybe that will be an option in the future! Hopefully!

I want to come to your house!!! Bet it smells wonderful! I'm mad at myself for not getting up & walking this morning! I missed out on a long sleeve t-shirt kind of walking morning! I was too tired after a week of partying with my brother & the race last night. Thankfully tomorrow morning is supposed to be more of the same!

Like I said - the race was a lot of fun last night. I'm glad we went! I was hoping Ryan Newman was going to pull out the win, but no such luck! We pulled in the driveway at 12:11, so wasn't too late! We know a back way out to avoid ALL THAT TRAFFIC! Geesh!
Not a whole lot going on at work today, but enough to keep busy - wishing I was outside! What a beautiful day!! Make it a great Christmas In July day!!!
