Good morning, everyone. It is so cool here in northern California that you would think it were fall! I have on my sweatshirt jacket! I love it, so I am not complaining! I hope your day is as nice as mine is starting out!

Tonight I have to help my "old" neighbor (I'm not calling her old, she's just not my nieghbor anymore...LOL) cut nylon for making scrubbies. We are going to do this in my parents basement - Mom will help too! BUT after that I will be at the PINES!!! Tomorrow night my family is taking convertibles out to eat to listen to a local guy playing music on the patio at this restaurant. Busy week!! It's going to be Friday before I know it. Nothing is getting done at home this week. EEK!!!

Wishing you all a Fantastic Hump Day!!! See you at the pines!

You are so sweet to take in the lab, where are you keeping her? What does Buster think of her?

Glad you guys had a great time last night!!

See you @ the Pines =]

It's a short notice and they said the vacancy came up unexpectedly and asked if I would be interested in still interviewing. Prayers would be greatly appreciated.

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and I hope to drop by the Pines tonight! Crown told us (perhaps warned us) that Carl was going to be twice as entertaining! I'm not sure we could handle that, but might as well try!
Woohoo!! Good luck, friend!
Praying for you & sending hugs

I can't wait to see the stuff in stores, I think I head to Kmart almost everyday I have off during November & December to look at their stuff.
I am sure today is going to be a long day.


Have a great day all!
Hope today goes well for you!!

The countdown is on, not long before you'll be singing Holiday Road =]

Hang in there!!

She mentioned that she wanted to go to Sephora so maybe I will take her there to buy some new makeup. My girls love that store. I need another cup of coffee before I do anything else!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Thank you, Seawaters!!

No, but I wish!! One day!!!

I have been in meetings, getting all kinds of ID's & Passwords for various websites that I'll be using, filling out forms, etc. I will be in training for quite some time. In fact, they are sending me to the twin cities for some classes in the next couple of weeks. I just had pictures taken today.

Thanks for thinking of me.

How are you? Hope you're feeling much better!!
