Good morning all!! It is a little cooler this morning here in North Carolina, hope it last.

I'm off first thing this morning to take the oldest DS to the dentist and a quick stop at the store. Then I think I can stay home for the rest of the day, that would be great.

August is here which means we are getting closer to my favorite time of the year. I will be so glad when summer is over, I'm wanting to change my decor to the warm/cozy fall colors.

Well better get moving. Have a grand day everyone

He is just annoyed because he has so much going on with the construction in the house, he doesn't need more work. And my youngest had friends over tonight, we had to keep telling them to keep it down. When its summer vacation they seem to forget that people have to get up early and go to work during the week. They are making us crazy this summer, never a dull moment here.
Anyway, I got my truck back and they did a great job detailing it. I didn't realize how filthy it was until I got the car back. Of course its going to rain tomorrow, lol. But the good news is the temperatures will only be in the 70's. Not bad for August 1st.
I hope everyone had a wonderful day!
what a blessing that your kids friends want to hang out at your home, to often young people take off and hang out around town, or who know where, board with nothing to do. You have provided a safe place for them to meet and have fun. Better crazy at home knowing what they are up to than missing sleep wondering where they are.

Hi everyone, hope you all are having a good week. We had a good time at teh Science museum on Monday . It started raining heavily as soon as we parked the car so luckily it was a day indoors. On tuesday we visited the Sealife centre and the Lego Discovery centre. The Sealife centre was amazing. The sharks and the mantarays were wonderful to watch. Yesterday we relaxed at home, well the kids did anyway. My hubby and I put up a new fence in the back garden all by ourselves!

Then as I was walking thru the store as a whole, I caught myself saying out loud as I walked past certain items; "glitter" and "glitter - drink", LOL... This is the truth! Lisa even heard me and she goes, "what are you saying???" I just started laughing to myself as I started to head to the isle where all the Halloween stuff was set up...
Haha!! So true!! I always talk to Adrian about you guys, and because we all have Christmas names, his way of remembering who is who is by where they're from =]

It's great how things remind us of each other throughout the day!!

She is doing pretty well. Thanks for asking! She looks great!! I just feel sad for her. How lonely she must be! I hope she gets a cat soon. She said she needs to have some "eyes" in her house. Since she had to put her cat down, she doesn't have any daily contact with "eyes"! Yep, she needs a pet!!! Wish she had a friend or family that lived closer to her - or she would move closer to us! But she's a tough girl!
