I am so curious to see if there are Halloween/Christmas things out, they usually start after school reopens.

Our weekend will be a cosy, quiet and unplanned one. I will be working on Sunday so that always makes our weekends shorter.

Hope everyone is having a good day, I am off to continue with a few things I have been doing while keeping my little one amused Hope the rain stops in time for the school run at 3pm!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Hope the rain lets up soon!!! Enjoy your weekend!!!

Good Morning MMC!!! It's going to be a hot one here today with a high of 89. I want my fall air back. Not much on my agenda. I slept good again after all of that jumping up and down cheering for Peyton last night so I think I'm going to tackle the kitchen instead of putting it off yet again. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!

I hope he can get some good rest before long. I know how you feel. I feel that way after Mr. has a late night at the office---sometimes he doesn't get home until 2 or 3 a.m., after getting to work at 9 a.m., and then has to be back at the office at 9 or 10 a.m. next morning. Add a 1-1/2-hour commute to that, and he doesn't get much sleep to operate on. And it's even harder for your DH, having been at a fire instead of an office.

I skimmed through an article about it, and yes, they DO include dried veggies. Noodles, too, I guess, because one of the three flavors they're offering is chicken noodle soup.

Good Friday morning, my Christmas friends!

Jacob's birthday party was a lot of fun. I even ate a few chicken wings, breaking my diet. Mmmm, mmmm! He finally got a cell phone, and was very pleased with himself. We're also planning a trip for him and a friends to Six Flags when they start the Halloween festivities.

Tonight we're going to nearby Statesboro to see a blues concert that Jacob's guitar teacher is playing in. The concert coincides with the first week of once-a-month fall street vendors in Statesboro, so we're going to make an evening of it. I think mom is coming with us, too.

I hope y'all have a great day!

It went down into the low to mid 40s (F) last night. The temps in the house have been hanging around 80, so I left some windows open overnight and got it down to 72. It's sunny and clear and cool and so refreshing outside today! But I have to spend the day indoors at the office. At least I can look out the window. And it's Friday! No particular plans this weekend other than Sunday. Two of my BILs and one of my nephews are coming to help us move some bulk trash out to the curb and to move in a sofa, a bookcase, and a cabinet my MIL doesn't need anymore. The sofa should make a nice cozy spot in our front room ... I'm looking forward to that.
