First, I had a few appointments. One was with my chiropractor who is amazing! She has really helped me a lot, and is a big animal lover too. She told me I could bring Harlowe anytime if she isn't feeling well, and she would adjust her too. For free...nice lady.

Then, I had to go to Menard's for some batteries, nails, and light bulbs. I found lots of Christmas things there, just starting to be stocked. Awesome!!

After that, I came home & started going through our storage under the stairs. Adrian couldn't find his carving tools, and with it being prime pumpkin carving season, I had to save the day! I finally found them packed in Christmas things (?)!! Must've been by Adrian... So, he's happy, and I had fun looking at all of our Christmas decorations!! Some of them have never been used, so can't wait to put them out this year!! Adrian hit clearance the past two years, and found some awesome things.

Going to start dinner soon. Date night tonight =]

Hope you're all having a great weekend so far!!

xx


Glad the Chiro is helping buddy!!!! I hate to know you are in pain!!!

I wish we had a menards on the East side!!! Maybe I'll head south this weekend if I get bored.

Can't wait to see the pic's of your Christmas decor!!!

Well it's Friday afternoon at work and I am almost out of here! Terribly busy day and so looking forward to this weekend. I kind of hesitate to bring this up but as we all are so excited about this season change of fall and leading up the Holidays I just realized and it hit me hard that cm3 won't be here with us this year. I mean I do think about her everyday but the thought that she won't be here for us to share it kind of just smacked me in the face just now. I know everyone here misses her but it's really sinking in with me that she really is gone. The first Holiday after a loved one has passed are always the hardest I know from when my Dad died. I hate to bring it up because I don't really want to bring the atmosphere down. It just don't seem right that she is not here talking about her furbabies well I will talk to yall soon as I get home and situated!

Don't worry about bringing us down!! It's going to get harder for a lot of us the closer we get to Christmas. You just have to believe that she is still here with us. She may not be able to post for us to see but she is still there watching over us and guiding us along the way. She lives on in our love of the season and love for one another. She helped bring us together as a family and as long as we keep the love that she showed us in our hearts, she will always be with us.
