Hope you all have a great Thursday. Track, get feeling better!

We are shopping around for another car right now for my youngest and I'm so worried about her. Its extra nerve wracking when they first start driving! Anyway, I'm going to Target and Rite Aid for a few things, then back home to do some chores. I think I need another cup of coffee before I head out. I hope everyone has a great day!

I have a sort of Christmassy story to share: This morning I had to take something into DD's school for her. She is 8 years old & in 3rd grade. Outside I met DD's head of daycare, where she went from 12 weeks through 5 years old. She rolled down her window & said, "I have on the earrings you bought me!" We gave them to her one year as a Christmas gift, so that was at least four Christmases ago! It made me happy to know that she still thinks of us after all those years & children that have come through the daycare. Always take time to think of a good gift for people, they will remember you for it!

Good afternoon, MMC!

I am so tired - guess that is what I get for staying up until the wee hours of the morning. As it is still muggy in the house I am going to wait a few hours before I start canning. It is supposed to cool down a lot more tonight, so it will be the perfect time. I only have pint jars, but there aren't a lot of tomatoes ready so all should be good.

Off to take care of a few things around the house.

Be MERRY!!!

This three hour stretch between my classes is rough. I'll be so happy when I get priority registration for next semester.

How is everyone else's day going? More interesting then mine I hope.
