LOL!!!! I'm the same way!!!

Good morning all. I wanted to drop by the Pines last night, but I spent my night mowing. It has rained here so I haven't been able to cut the grass in over a week and my goodness it was thick! That may have been the toughest mowing job I've ever done. But, it's nice and short now, and I wish I could freeze it like that!

I hope you all are doing good. I can't wait for the weekend. My wife got me, for my birthday, a DVD set that Turner Classic put out with five Universal westerns. It just came in the mail yesterday and I hope to watch one or two this weekend.
Have a good Thursday!

I know what you mean, its on my mind a lot when I'm in the stores. I often reach for my phone to take a picture of something but usually chicken out because there are too many people around. I'm afraid they will think I'm crazy taking random pictures.

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
It is a bit cooler here in New York too, we have temperatures in the 70's, I enjoyed my morning walk.
Hope DS's dentist appointment goes well.
Have a great day Mommyby3!

It's basically lakeside collection for business's. Instead of having stuff sent to your home. Your set up an account through your place of work and then everyone can order and have it sent to there.

I'm pretty excited it is August 1st! While August drags by (because it is so hot, and seems to be so long), it is the month school starts (which signals fall will be here shortly). It is also the month college football starts! It may not start until the last day of August, but I can say that later this month I will be watching football. Oh man, I can't wait!

Yes, I agree Christmasstar! And their friends love coming here. It just gets a little crazy sometimes. My girls are 17, 18 and 19. I don't know what I was thinking having them that close, lol.
