Just watching the Bengals preseason game, the score looks good, but it means as much as a blizzard warning in July, I do have to say I like this team a lot this year.

My friend had her American Idol audition, she is not going to Hollywood, but we may see her on TV when the new season starts. She said she was interviewed on camera so we can look forward to that.

I hope everyone is doing well.


Goodnight, friends.
Goodnight, Xmas!!

Hope tomorrow makes up for today.

she was my partner in the ornament exchange last year and with everything going on with my dad well I just didn't send it. I found it a few weeks ago and finally mailed it today.. I hope she can forgive me and that I am welcome here again.
I'm sorry for your loss MerryNoel, sending prayers your way.

Good evening!
I can't believe how fast this afternoon and evening flew by. I got wrapped up in some financial aid stuff for both of my daughers. My husband came home this afternoon to work on it with me. Next year I will have three in college at the same time. It's crazy. A few of my chores got backed up but I'm finally caught up with everything. My daughter has an early morning doctor appointment so I'm going to try and turn in a little bit earlier than usual. I hope everyone is well

I'm gonna go back and read all these posts from today...but I just got home from work and it's been a 16 hour day....so I probably won't make it through all of them....but I wanted to point something out....

If you stand on your tippie-toys.....you can see Friday from here.

I love Friday...and here's to hoping that you love yours tomorrow.....

Luckily no kids were on it but my sister said the driver was pretty shook up.
This makes me so angry! I hope he is dealt with accordingly by the police! Bless that poor bus driver and those little kids.

Sounds like a lovely evening, have fun!

I'm appreciative for the opportunity to interview though and know the right thing will come along.

I did visit my wife's new classroom yesterday. She's working hard to put it together and doing a great job. Tomorrow night we might have a date night as my in-laws are taking the kids to Tulsa (about an hour and a half from us) to see some stuff and have a fun day before school starts. So, me and the Mrs. are going to take advantage of it and go out to eat!

Hope you all have a great day.
I am sure the right job will come along when the time is right, keep your faith. Hope you and your wife enjoy your time together!

Well it is understandable about the ornament exchange. I am sure you will be forgiven afterall we are committed to the tru spirit of christmas here and that includes forgiveness ..........

Glad to have you back on the forums.
