My oldest daughter had to go in to work early this morning, so I woke up with her at 6:00 a.m. I feel like I could go back to sleep, but I'm not going to. My middle one also has work today but not until later this afternoon. My youngest had a job interview this past Thursday, they called her yesterday and offered her the position. We are going to take a ride down there this morning so she can fill out some paperwork. She has been through a couple of different jobs this past year. If she doesn't like something she looks for another job. I have to give her credit, the kid keeps getting hired. I may take her to do some shopping after, we both need a few things.
My husband will be busy painting today. Hopefully most of us will meet up for dinner.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!
Congrats to your daughter! Enjoy your day!

Glad you're starting to feel better. I'll be praying her - if she needs something for pain or temp, make sure she only takes Tylenol, no Motrin during pregnancy, which I'm sure the doctor has told her. Keep us updated on both of you! God Bless!

What are your plans for today? I'm not sure what we will do. We haven't talked about it yet. I got pretty much all the housework done I wanted to yesterday, I just want to do some folding of clothes today. Other than that, it's pure relaxation! DH works tonight, so he'll be heading to work around 4 and I go back to work tonight as well, so we probably won't do much anyway.

Well, I am off to read more of the posts in other threads. I hope you all enjoy your Sunday. God Bless and keep smiling! Be back later.
6am? I was just falling asleep then!! LOL!!

Have fun today!!
