Good morning, everyone!

Today I have my follow-up appointment with my surgeon. I think I am healing well and I feel good except I have some numbness that I discovered this morning. I read that it can happen after surgery and will fade in weeks/months if the damage is temporary. I couldn't even imagine having permanent nerve damage so I really hope that's not the case.

The official start of fall will be here before we know it! They just announced when we will be having trick or treat here, which is going to be on the 31st. I know you're probably thinking "well duh" but in my town they usually do it on a certain day of the week, which almost never ends up being Halloween. I am looking forward to going to the store and starting to buy candy to pass out to the kids. I always try to get a good variety - chocolate, gummies, other candy, chips - that way the kids can pick what they like the best. When I was little I used to think I hit the jackpot when I'd get a Little Hug drink.

I know I am slacking but I have to get out and buy some new Halloween decorations for the yard. I haven't had a chance yet. I am trying not to go too crazy on the Halloween decorations so I can save more money for Christmas decorations

I have some stuff to do for school and then I am going to get ready later this afternoon and head to my appointment. I hope you all have a wonderful day! Don't work too hard and drive safe!

It's great to share the Christmas cheer
Great story! Thanks for sharing!!! Enjoy your trip to Robin Hoods Bay!!!

Sounds delicious. Thank you! I'm not sure if I've ever seen dried Chipotle seasoning! Or do you make your own?

I'll have to tell Adi that @ the chips!! We were able to move back to Wisconsin because Adrian is marketing the food products whose proceeds benefit his charity. They are produced in various Midwest states.

Larry The Cable Guy is a comedian, and also has a show on the History Channel called Only In America. He also did the voice for Tow Mater in Disney Pixar's movie Cars.

It's going to be so strange not having to chauffeur any kids around. My husband has been haggling with the car dealer all week and I believe they are just about ready to make a deal.
I also had some other news to share. A friend of mine has been doing babysitting out of her home to make some extra money. She has been doing it for years and has to turn people away because she can only watch so many. Anyway, she called me last night and asked if I might be interested in watching a six year old special needs girl. It would only be for a couple of hours in the morning until the school bus picks her up, twice a week. The family lives very close to me, they are right around the corner. I actually met with them earlier, they are a beautiful family. The little girl has cerebral palsy. She can't communicate well but she walks and eats all by herself. And she is incredibly sweet. I told them I will do it, I am so excited! Wish me luck, I really hope it works out. I start next Tuesday.
I hope everyone is well and had a wonderful day.
Goodnight!
That's awesome of you to watch the little girl. I'm sure that is a HUGE relief to her parents to know they are leaving her at a safe & wonderful place!

I am nervous about him driving it if is smoking!!!!!!!

Then there was an issue with my account and while on the phone trying to sort it I couldn't find my bank card. I thought for sure I lost it or it was stolen. All this with a crying baby and the school run to do. After many tears and a living room that now looks like it was hit by a mini tornado (me) I thankfully found it!

Anyway things are and will get better as the day goes by. I guess we will just have to accept it if things don't work out with DH's new role, another opportunity will arise I am sure. We'll know later today.

Now , I just hope he makes it home without the car setting the streets alight with fire like Ghostrider!!!!!!!!!!!

Almost weekend again! Have yourselves a merry day!
What a morning! Sending hugs & prayers the car is an easy fix & good things come regarding hubby's job!

I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hot & rainy here too. I never looked to see how much rain we got! It was storming at 5am so we missed our morning walk! Congrats on the BIG WIN!!! Enjoy your shopping trip...hope you find lots of good stuff!!!

My brother and I usually have lunch with mom on Fridays, but she's going to the mountains for the weekend, so we're meeting her today, instead.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Women! HA!! Enjoy lunch with your Mom/Bro!

Sounds like you have a good start on present buying!! I hope you will try nutmeg again!

In my family we use nutmegg more in some sauces and other meals. But never in sweet food / beverage. That's why I didn't like the frappuccino.

Good morning MMC!!! Back to work today! Boooo!!! We had a nice time with family last night celebrating Mikes birthday. The bbq chicken lasagna & the cabbage/macaroni/sausage were all delicious - thankfully! You never know how stuff is going to turn out the 1st time you make it!

Our neighbor Cory got engaged yesterday (the one who pitches for the SD Padres) - there was a party for him at his parents last night & I'm bummed we missed it. We were both so exhausted when we got home from the meal & they had a HOUSE FULL of people. Cars up & down the street! We'll have to walk over there tonight or sometime! He drove into town on Tuesday with his (now) fiance - he saw a surgeon in Cincinnati yesterday - he had Tommy Johns surgery last year & he is still experiencing soreness in his elbow when he pitches. Hopefully they can get something figured out for him!! He has worked SO hard to get there!!

Ok - I better get back to work! Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday!!!!

We have so many Starbucks on Long Island, it's crazy. We don't have to drive more than 5 minutes to get to one.

I am nervous about him driving it if is smoking!!!!!!!

Then there was an issue with my account and while on the phone trying to sort it I couldn't find my bank card. I thought for sure I lost it or it was stolen. All this with a crying baby and the school run to do. After many tears and a living room that now looks like it was hit by a mini tornado (me) I thankfully found it!

Anyway things are and will get better as the day goes by. I guess we will just have to accept it if things don't work out with DH's new role, another opportunity will arise I am sure. We'll know later today.

Now , I just hope he makes it home without the car setting the streets alight with fire like Ghostrider!!!!!!!!!!!

Almost weekend again! Have yourselves a merry day!
Sending hugs and prayers your way!

I was getting a lot of work done on the Camaro yesterday evening when Nancy called to get me to pick up the kids from church. Now, she knew I've been waiting all week for Wednesday, so I could get something done on the car, but noooo, we can't have that. Grrr.

My brother and I usually have lunch with mom on Fridays, but she's going to the mountains for the weekend, so we're meeting her today, instead.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Enjoy lunch Brad, hope your mom has a safe trip!

Today I have my follow-up appointment with my surgeon. I think I am healing well and I feel good except I have some numbness that I discovered this morning. I read that it can happen after surgery and will fade in weeks/months if the damage is temporary. I couldn't even imagine having permanent nerve damage so I really hope that's not the case.
I hope your appointment goes well Jennifer, praying the numbness is temporary.

Our neighbor Cory got engaged yesterday (the one who pitches for the SD Padres) - there was a party for him at his parents last night & I'm bummed we missed it. We were both so exhausted when we got home from the meal & they had a HOUSE FULL of people. Cars up & down the street! We'll have to walk over there tonight or sometime! He drove into town on Tuesday with his (now) fiance - he saw a surgeon in Cincinnati yesterday - he had Tommy Johns surgery last year & he is still experiencing soreness in his elbow when he pitches. Hopefully they can get something figured out for him!! He has worked SO hard to get there!!

Ok - I better get back to work! Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday!!!!
So happy to hear last night went well and you had a nice time! Congratulations to Cory!

Good afternoon!
I tried to pop in here earlier but I couldn't log on for some reason. The morning has flown by. I ran a couple of errands and have most of my chores finished, just need to do another load of laundry and some ironing. I'm having a quick coffee break and will be heading back out, this time to the pet store. Not too much else going on. Oh I also need to write a menu plan and grocery list for next week. It's a beautiful day, sunny with a high of 72 degrees. I should probably get outside to wash my truck too, it really needs it!
I hope everyone is well and is having a great day
