I do it all by myself. I've been a single mom for the last 4 years after getting us out of a very abusive marriage. It's hard sometimes but it's 1000 times better than it was before. Now I can do what I want when I want

It looks like Iím heading out west this weekend. For my birthday, my wife bought be a DVD set of Universal Westerns from the 1950s (the artwork inside the case is amazing and I would love to have it as a standalone piece!). One of my favorites, Backlash, is on the set. It was previously not available on DVD, so I am very excited to have it. I think I will try Dawn at Socorro as I have not seen that one.
I also received a set of Monogram B-Westerns (released by the Warner Brothers Vault). Several have Johnny Mack Brown and I might watch one of those, too. If need be, I also have an old Tim Holt B-picture on my DVR waiting.
Are you and Mr. going to watch anything this weekend?
Sounds like a good show! I'm not well-read on Westerns, but I recognize the names. And Mr. is a big fan of Monogram (in general, not just Westerns).

I'm sure we'll be watching something, but I don't know what yet. We've been watching chapters of a Rin-Tin-Tin serial from about 1930, but the transfer is SO bad I can hardly stand it, so I haven't been paying much attention to it. Outside of Rinty, Frankie Darro is the best thing in it.

Sorry to hear about the sisutation you and the kids were in but so glad you could leave it. So many people will stay and never escape and it is so sad.

One day at a time!!

Adrian's birthday is tomorrow, and we have some friends coming to town to help him celebrate. Should be fun.

I stopped by Michael's and talked to a different associate, and she said that the Spooky Town village would be up by the end of the weekend. Yay =] maybe the other lady was talking about the Christmas village?

What are your weekend plans?

Hope you're all having a blessed day!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Good luck!!! You will do GREAT!! Happy Birthday to Adrian! I know you all will have FUN!!! ENJOY!!

This weekend we have 2 retirement parties at the lake (together) Saturday. I am so excited to give the 1 lady her gift certificate for a new bicycle - we all threw money in together to get her a gift cert to the bike shop! She is going to flip!! Sunday we are having a "cookout" (actually my Dad is smoking a turkey) at my brothers for my parents SIXTY SECOND wedding anniversary!!! YAY!!!

She was going out her back door to feed her cats Tuesday morning and misjudged the steps, fell, and shattered her hip. She had surgery yesterday and will be in the hospital at least until Saturday or Sunday. Then she will be transferred for six weeks to a rehab hospital. So sad--she has no insurance and works part time in the school cafeteria and part time tutoring. So for six weeks, she will be without pay. I told Hubby that we will have to help her when she gets home. I am going to pay her rent until she can go back to work so she doesn't stress herself out. I wish I could do more.

We have some problems in our church. It seems there is a small group of parishioners that do not like our new priest. They brought a lawsuit against him and want to replace him. There was a meeting Tuesday night and that (small) group were so mean and conniving that he ultimately "resigned." What a mistake. This small group somehow believes they will get an English-speaking priest that will kowtow to their every whim. So, so sad. There are not a lot of English-speaking priests in our Diocese. I don't know how this group expects to get a priest now. It remains to be seen what the ultimate repercussions will be. I have never seen anything like this!
That is soooooo nice of you to pay your friends rent! What a good friend! Sorry to hear she shattered her hip. Wishing her a speedy recovery!!!
Sad to hear about your church too! We even have a non english speaking priest at a local church here in the middle of Ohio...so yep, Priests are numbered. Praying for you all!

I'm also DD's soccer club team rep, so I have to attend the monthly board meeting so that is Monday night so I need to be ready for it too.

And to top everything off I got an email from oldest DS's high school asking me to join the athletic boosters this year. Anybody know how to clone yourself

Well I hope everyone has had a grand day. Enjoy your evening!!!
Funny how they always seem to ask the people who are already involved in everything!! They know you wont' say "no"! Good luck!!

Does any Dr. Who fans here have any suggestion who it will be? Currently only a few actors that i could see could fufill that roll and do a decent job. This morning when i was reading and article read some of the comments people made and one of them was the best ever suggestion "Rowan Atkinson". WHich did his own spoof a while back.
