I hope y'all have a great day!
Sounds like a wonderful day planned!! Have a fabulous time!!

Yesterday I got home quite late and had such a bad headache that after I put things away I went straight to bed.

The sun is shining right now, but there are heavy storms forecast for later tonight.

My headache is gone!!! Yay!!! I have spent the day trying to catch up on all the things I should have done last night and tackle all the things that I wanted to do today. Busy!

Be MERRY and safe!!!
Glad to hear your headache is gone!!! Hope you are feeling much better!

I am getting ready to go on vacation in a couple of days and of course I am sick right now. I think it's a head cold but I don't know for sure. My head is foggy and I feel a little out of it. My nose was runny/slightly congested for a couple of days and my throat was scratchy so I thought it was allergies. That seemed to pass though and now I am just stuck with a cloudy head! I tried a decongestant yesterday, didn't help. Claritin today, didn't help, at least not yet.

I cannot believe how fast time flies! I finally just finished my summer classes and I have one class in the fall left. Then I will finally graduate!

I really am surprised that it is August already. That sounds silly to say I but I feel like it was May yesterday! I have seen a ton of Halloween decorations out in the stores which means Christmas stuff will be soon! Bring it on!!
I started with a sore throat last week & then it moved into my chest! It's still hanging there, but getting better. People keep telling me "My Mom, my sister, my co-worker.... has that!!!" So either something is going around or it's weather/allergies/sinus! Hope you are feeling better today & 100% by vacation!!! Have a great trip! Good luck with preparing for graduation!!!

I sure hope that Friday is a little more calmer... well, I'll be here checking the days posts~

Now it is my fathers turn. They would like to buy a flat, as houses are waaaaayyyyyyyyy to expensive around here. They worry that if they get sick and have to go to a nursing home all their money (and dads part of the inheritance) will be used for they care. In our country this is part of the social system.

Now we have to look for affordable flats, which isn't exactly easy. We live in a pretty expensive area and can't just move to other places.

Could you pray for us? We hope for wisdom to make the right decision. Besides we try to calm our grandparents down, as they get pretty worked up. Really don't know what's the reason for all this stressing that's going on around here.




Oh, that is sooo great! But couldn't it be, that Maggie will show up again? I mean, now that she knows the way to her old home? Guess you will play dog saviour more often.
Sending prayers up!
I had a little talk with Maggie - I told her she cold come back to visit me, but she had to ask her Mom/Dad 1st! Ha ha ha! At least if she does come back, we know where she belongs now! Hopefully she will stay home though!!

I said a little prayer for you for wisdom and patience. I hope things turn out for the very best for all of you.

Some drivers have the brains of a housefly. I'd like to put on a very large steel-toed boot and aim right between THIS driver's back pockets.

I hope you get well soon! How exciting that you only have one class left. What is the subject you will graduate in?
First off, you will most definitely be in my prayers. It will all work out for you in the end! Try to remain relaxed and stress-free, even if it's difficult! You will know when you make the right choice!

Thank you! I will be graduating with a degree in Business with a focus in marketing and management.

Ugh! I am sorry that you were sick. I hope you keep feeling better every day! One of my best friends lives across the country and she said that something similar is going around there, too. I am hoping it is allergies but who knows! Thank you!!

Hey, everyone! I am here to stick around this time

It went from being relatively cool here for the past week to now roasting again and needing the air conditioner. I stepped outside to go for a walk after it rained last night, and wow - overwhelming humidity! I don't know if anyone has ever watched Friends...but if you recall the Barbados episode where Monica's hair went poofy/frizzy - that was me after going outside

I am feeling a little bit better today. Just hoping it goes away before vacation. I am not really looking forward to the plane ride. I don't mind it when there are two seats across and I can sit next to my family member, but I hate three which this plane has. I always feel crammed and like I have zero space.

I still have so much packing to do...yikes!!! I am so afraid I am going to forget something, even though I made a list and have been crossing off as I go.

It's not a very good day here today, but checking in on the forum helps. Trying to look forward to the weekend, which is a sales tax holiday in Massachusetts. I think we'll take advantage of that to update our TV set---we're still using a non-digital, non-HD TV, but there are signs that the picture tube may be starting to go.

I'd like to be someplace else with all of you instead of here today. With mugs of cocoa around a large Christmas tree.

Thanks!! It's nuts!!! But a good kind if nuts =] It was so beautiful so I cooled down the house & opened up all of the windows.

It sounds like a sweet, happy ending for Maggie & her family!! That's wonderful!

Hope you feel better!!
We have a very high pollen count here, and it's affecting me too.

Have a great day, girlie!!

Elvis Preseli and the Undertakers

Elvis Preseli and the Undertakers
Thursday 8th August
Venue: Clarence Inn
Time: 9:00pm
Info: "I AM the only bald, Welsh-speaking, Elvis impersonator who doesn't sing Elvis songs in the world " says Gareth Benney, otherwise known as Elvis Preseli. It is a bit too much of a sales pitch to fit on the posters, and even the biggest circus barker in showbiz, Col Tom Parker, might have struggled to market him, but Gareth is a popular chap in the clubs of South Wales as well as in Germany. Having said that, the organisers of the annual Porthcawl Elvis festival just can't help believing he is poking fun at their idol. He explains: "They threw us out of the festival because I used to take a George Foreman grill on stage with me, which I called The Presizzler, and I would cook up burgers, because Elvis loved burgers. "They thought I was going too far. "I love Elvis. I always have. But they thought I was making fun of him. I was actually making fun of Elvis Impersonators." What with the improbable nylon wigs and the paunches-in-jumpsuits, Presley impersonators in general are an open goal, it has to be said. But the fact that Geraint doesn't cover any Elvis songs may have got the fans all shook up too. "I always used to sing Elvis songs, and every time I was at the karaoke I would do Suspicious Minds, but my friends got sick of it. "So now we do all kinds of other material — Gnarls Barkley, Outkast, Radiohead, Scissor Sisters — but we do them in the style of Elvis." Geraint, from Aberdare, gets around the dubious wig problem too, by not wearing one. "I have the outfits — the jumpsuit from the Vegas years, the leather one from the Comeback Special. But I don't wear a wig. And am completely bald. "I do put the sideburns on though." A keen practical joker and known for his on-stage jollity with the band, I can't help thinking Elvis would get the joke. But the ban from the festival seems to be a lifetime one. "I am barred for life, yes," says Geraint. I would suggest he starts up a fringe festival, but Elvis would never have been seen dead in a fringe.
Sounds like lots of fun!!!! ENJOY every minute!!!!!

A guy in my sister's housing addition saw my niece's school bus this morning and didn't want to get stuck behind it. So instead, he tried to out turn the bus around a corner and instead of making it, crashed right into the side of the bus. Luckily no kids were on it but my sister said the driver was pretty shook up.
UGH! I'm glad nobody was hurt!!! What's wrong with people???

What is everyone's plans for today? EA and I are headed to the movies here at 10, then we're going to lunch at Applebee's. It will be the last one of the summer kid's special we're able to do, so I want to take her. When we get home, I'm going to bake a banana nut bread and try to do some things around the house.

I hope you're all doing well. Thinking of all you and prayers to all of you who need them! Talk to you all later on. Hope you all enjoy your day! God Bless and keep smiling!
Sounds like a great day! Enjoy!!!

It is going to be cloudy and humid today. I woke up to a thunderstorm at 3:30 a.m. Molly was a nervous wreck. Thankfully it passed quickly. I am heading out soon to run a couple of errands. I already got a few chores out of the way and dinner is started in the crock pot. I'm making pulled pork and homemade coleslaw tonight. I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!
Sounds delicious!!! Enjoy your day!

My cousin and his family are driving up today for the weekend. His family has a place just down the road from mama's place, so it'll be fun to have them here. Ed's also my best friend, and we've played together in the band for more than 20 years. Maybe we'll plan a big BBQ this weekend!

I hope y'all have a great day!
How FUN! Have a great time!!! Wish I were rafting & ziplining with you today instead of sitting at a computer. LOL!! (but this site on the computer is a GREAT place to be!!)

See you tomorrow!
Enjoy your evening!
