Good morning everyone. I can't wait for the weekend. We are going to relax and do nothing! At least that's the plan, anyway.
I am glad to see October roll around next week. I always look forward to the Halloween shows starting on the Travel Channel and stations like that.
Hope you all have a great Friday!

Good morning! Aw, poor Jordan. I hope that his ear gets better, he'll be in my prayers! I hope that you have a nice weekend with your BIL & SIL. Have a good morning/afternoon!

Just stopping in for a quick hello. I will shortly be en route to Leominster, MA, as we are staying there for two nights while competing in the Northeast Regional championships in Devens, MA. Devens is a small town situated around an old military barracks, so there is only one hotel. We attempted to book a little late. The option was $170 per night to walk to the fields or $70 per night to drive 10 minutes. I think that's an easy option.

Anyway, signs of Christmas are popping up everywhere! Although I have yet to have the opportunity to search Ottawa, I hope to be able to do a bit of early Christmas exploration wherever we may go today. My fingers are crossed!

I have a few things left to get ready. I should probably get on that. Hopefully I have time to post before heading to the fields tomorrow, but I cannot guarantee. We start playing at 8:30 and thus have to be there for 7:30. Everything is going to be quite rushed.

Have a great Friday, everyone! The final weekend of September is almost here!
Safe travels to you, Brent! I agree that signs of Christmas are popping up everywhere - I love it. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Morning, MMC!

This is going to be a quick post because I am super rushed (what else is new?) lol! I have to shower, straighten my hair, put on makeup, and get out of the door within an hour and a half. I decided to make an appointment with my dermatologist for the mole that my surgeon spotted on my arm and thought was suspicious. I am almost 100% sure that they are going to cut it off. While I am there I asked for a full body check just to make sure that I am not missing anything else that is pre-cancerous.

I'm a little nervous, of course, but I don't think it will be too bad. I'm not a fan of needles but I have been stuck so much lately that I'm kind of used to it.

I'll let you know how my appointment goes although I won't know much until my biopsy results come back.

Have a wonderful day! Safe travels to/from work, everyone!

I always feel like I have to "sneak" a picture in too!! Glad I'm not the only one! But I sure do love all the pics!!! I'll "sneak" some when I can!!!

I did pick up the DVD The Legend of Smurfy Hollow to watch during the Halloween season, so we have that to look forward to and a week from tonight the Bruins start up. Wooohooo!!!


Good night, everyone.
I hope inventory goes better than expected! Good luck!!!

After that I think it's Missouri then after that it's game of the season... the game that usually makes fights break out in the stands and parking lot..the GA/FL game is always played around Halloween. I went to one when I lived in Ga and said I would never go back because the tension and well hate is too much. Folks get drunk and end up fighting over a silly game. It will be just as fun to watch in my living room!! I can't wait! Well I hope everyone's team wins this weekend!
Our Buckeyes have the night game tomorrow...we will be putting it on the big screen at the lake & build a big ol fire! CAN'T WAIT!! BIG 10 opener against Wisconsin!!! We tried to get tickets for the game, but cheapest we could find were $139 each! EEK! Not worth that!!!

I wouldn't last long in a job like that! I'd be mortified to even have a store employee come up and tell me to put the camera away. Although I have thought that I could make up an excuse, like "My cousin is looking for a ____ just like that, and I just wanted to send her a picture and tell her where to find it!" That wouldn't cover more than one picture, though.

Much good luck to you during the inventory, xmas. Isn't it a pain to be the responsible one? The irresponsible ones always seem to take advantage of it, knowing someone will make up for their deficiencies. (i.e., if you're determined to get the job done right, you have to babysit the loafers or do their work for them.)

Just stopping in for a quick hello. I will shortly be en route to Leominster, MA, as we are staying there for two nights while competing in the Northeast Regional championships in Devens, MA. Devens is a small town situated around an old military barracks, so there is only one hotel. We attempted to book a little late. The option was $170 per night to walk to the fields or $70 per night to drive 10 minutes. I think that's an easy option.

Anyway, signs of Christmas are popping up everywhere! Although I have yet to have the opportunity to search Ottawa, I hope to be able to do a bit of early Christmas exploration wherever we may go today. My fingers are crossed!

I have a few things left to get ready. I should probably get on that. Hopefully I have time to post before heading to the fields tomorrow, but I cannot guarantee. We start playing at 8:30 and thus have to be there for 7:30. Everything is going to be quite rushed.

Have a great Friday, everyone! The final weekend of September is almost here!
You will only be an hour down the road from me, we went to Leominster last year and I tried to find the Christmas store I read that was in the town but I had no luck.

Good luck this weekend.
