Good morning friends! As I am about to leave to go to work I am really beginning to like my short drive to and from work in a few weeks. The leaves will begin changing! I can't tell you all how happy I am to have a real fall/winter coming up! my friends I have met up here tell me most or some Halloweens already have snowcover on the ground. From late Nov to march or April snow will be on the ground so I better get use to it! I hope everyone has a great Thursday! Talk to yall soon!

Good Thursday morning all. Sorry I haven't been around much. We are busy here. Fall semester has begun at the community college where I work. Our son starts his senior year of high school on Monday, 8/26. We are busy looking at colleges for him and applying for scholarships. (How I wish I could make him 5 years younger.) Most weekends we make the 3 hour drive down to check on my ailing parents. Neither one is doing well. Mom is still determined to go to Myrtle Beach on Labor Day weekend to see the ocean one more time. Hope we can make it happen.

An article in our local newspaper stated that the mountains of western North Carolina were second to Hilo, Hawaii in rainfall for the year in the US. We have already far exceeded our normal rainfall amount for the entire year. I certainly like the cooler temps but the rain has gotten old. Just 5 years ago, our well went dry during a drought. Now we have more rain than we can handle causing several land slides. It is suppose to be a nice weekend with only a slight chance of rain and highs in upper 70s and lows in mid 50s. We hope to be able to stay home and enjoy it.

Have a blessed day.

Haha...love it! That's the most accurate description of summer break I've ever read...and the funniest! Stay strong, sister. When it comes to parenthood, only the STRONG survive.

This morning, coming down the stairs I could actually hear my knees make a creaking click clacking sound but that was overtaken by the sight of my living room room which I am sure has become a habitat for wild animals..........

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

I keep thinking (wishing?) it's Friday. I gotta get over that.

We did all of our running around yesterday, getting Jacob to guitar practice and Elizabeth to ballet practice. When we finally got home, they up till 11pm doing homework. Yippee, schools back in.

It's hot & humid down here, so humid you can feel the moisture in the air. Yuck! But we go back to the water park tomorrow evening, so that should be fun.

I hope y'all have a great day!
