When I first read this part I thought you were going to Sams to eat, thinking you were making your rounds on the samples for dinner. Ha ha! My aunt actually does that! But have to admit in the past I have made my rounds and only one round and felt full! Wayne laughs at that because here I am full and he is still hungry!

I hope 6 lbs of gummy bears is enough!

That is the best scene!!! I get just as giddy as he does when he says that! In fact, that is me at the end of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade when Santa shows up. I really do jump up and down screaming. Wayne just sits back and laughs at my giddiness!

with childhood arthritis/juvenile arthritis...
She did an MRI and x-ray last week, and the result came with bad news...

It shows that she have arthritis and that her temporomandibular joint (?)
are deformed and flat... She have to start on medizine asap.
And she have swollen lymph nodes on her throat and have to do an ultrasound next week.
More blood tests. And they want an x-ray of her lungs....
But there is more, and we will know more after talking to the doctor (next week)
And Im so worried!!!! ..... Please pray for her?

Here it's Autumn vacation (all next week)
And we are starting this weekend with homemade pizza!

I hope you will have a great weekend! Thank you for reading
Sending lots of prayers your way (((hugs)))

Hello everyone, just popping in quick to say hello. I've been doing chores and running errands all morning. I have a big pot of chili simmering on the stove right now so my family has something to eat later. I will be leaving in a little while to go to Yankee Candle for my training class. I hope to talk with you all tonight!
Have a great day

I'd like to be there to see that! It gets me excited, too, but I usually just smile real big! But I'd join you in jumping up and down and yelling!

I can't resist mentioning that today is Buster Keaton's birthday. "The General" inspired me years ago when I was suffering through chemotherapy. I've had a very soft spot for him ever since. Thinking of you, Mr. Keaton.

I just checked out weather for the first time today and our first chance of snow was actually this morning in association with the winter storm slamming Wyoming and Co. But it was only a 20 percent. It's 43F right now so I just don't see it happening. The snow level tonight was suppose to be 5500ft we are 4300Ft altitude. But that is right in line with normal. everyone says by the end of October we usually have had at least flurries. What is nuts to me is by Monday we will be back to the mid 70's!!! But I find it hard to complain about 75F sunny weather!! Perfect early Fall weather is you ask me. Well I am about to eat lunch. Hope everyone has a great afternoon to end this work week! see ya!
