As you may have read in some of my earlier posts I have been rearranging furniture during the past few days. Today, Palmer has been rearranging her toys! She has been carrying her teddy bear all around and placing it in various spots. Once placed, she sits and stares at it for a few minutes and then picks it up and moves it to another spot. Right now she has it hugging a box. As to her jingle balls, she is lining them up in prime play positions.

She is being a Sweet Pea again today!!!

I think it's kinda fun to watch them on TV where they record some of the people's reactions going through them.

Now on Food Network is Unwrapped all about Fall Favorites! I love that show, especially when it's about this time of year!

I went to a haunted house in an old prison in Philadelphia years ago adn it scared the heck out of me. Al Capone was once imprisoned there, which was kinda cool! This year, you can get marked and they will be able to grab you and PULL YOU FROM YOUR GROUP. WHAT! Noooooo, no, no nooooooooo! I don't know who the heck would enjoy that!

There's another local one that is an old asylum and it's supposedly TERRIFYING. Nooo thanks!!

Good evening and happy Friday to all! I'm happy for the fact that I'm almost done with the documentation and forms for the exchange. It was quite stressful to do so much paperwork in quite short period of time so I'm glad it's almost over. :] I also found out two other students who are going to Amsterdam next semester as well. I hope to hang out a bit with them before we leave. :] Also, I noticed that some shop have already put their Christmas trees up. Supermarket shelves are fully stuffed with Christmas treats. I especially liked M&S ones. They have the most adorable packaging EVER! ^^

Enjoy your Friday evening everyone!

Here in Willows, the fair days are mid-May. We have had so many furlough days the past years, so the powers-that-be "gave" us fair days, without pay, of course! I think there will be no furlough days, or at least fewer furlough days, this year. Of course, I don't have to worry about that anymore, LOL!!!

The kids will be going to the fair today with their parents so they will not be coming over today.

Tomorrow is the Texas/OU game at the State Fair/Cotton Bowl and it is already headlining the news. Our plan tomorrow, stay clear away from the Fair grounds! We decided to go to Six Flags last year on Texas/OU weekend and have to pass that area. We got caught up in a whole lot of traffic!

As Made reported, we FINALLY received our building permit. Hubby had to go down and pay a school tax (over $700), building permit fee (over $1000), and now has to pay the utility company a fee to put up a temporary electrical pole. In addition, he has to submit to the electric company his CAD plans, plus LOTS of other things! What??? It is crazy! He went online yesterday and ordered the huge exhaust hood for the stove! That thing was $3000! I guess it is a good thing we are rich, LOL!!! (Y'all know I am kidding, right?)

Every time I turn around, he's building something else. I can't wait until he starts to paint. He told me we will design the kitchen cabinets when he is finished painting. One of these days.
Not too much else going on here. Just trying to keep up with all of my household chores on the days I have to work. I don't know how women go to work all day and still keep up with everything else. I think they are amazing. I'm pretty sure this is just going to be a seasonal job for me.
I hope everyone is doing well and had a wonderful day. Can't believe tomorrow is Friday already!

The diagnosis was that the way she was sitting at work was making a problem she has had with her back for years but did not know about more pronounced. The doctor told her it was probably caused by whiplash. She never had whiplash although back in the early 70s, she was in a car accident and received quite a jolt. If she had gotten checked out then, she wouldn't be having such a time of it now.

I'm sorry you are having such a hard time resting your foot. Take it easy this weekend, made!!! I will be praying that you heal quick!!!

I finally convinced her to call and make an appointment for this afternoon since her back and shoulder are still sore.

Thanks!! I'm going to try and just sit here the rest of the day with it propped up.

How stupid can "smoking" drivers be? I hope your aunt gets herself taken care of. Sometimes, the effects of an accident are not readily noticeable. You take care of yourself, too, Made!

My aunt was stopped at a red light and a girl in a mazda just plowed into her, went up underneath her car, and shoved her sportage into an Esclade that was in front of her. The lady didn't even try to stop. She told my aunt that she remember's hitting her brakes and then she blacked out. Well my aunt's car had the radiator busted so she called me to come get her. I got there about the same time the cop did. While I was walking up it was clear to me what had happened and the cop apparently smelled the same thing I did. He went up to the young girl who was on her cell phone and told her to get off. She didn't listen. So he told her again. She didn't listen again. Then she tried to walk away. So he grabbed the phone out of her hand, turned it off, and threw it on the hood of her car. Then he proceeded to handcuff her and put her in the back of the cop car. He then walked back up to the car and took out her purse and pulled out a little margarine bowl. When he opened it, it was filled with weed. Which didn't shock me because her car reeked of it and I could smell it from 15 feet away. So I'm sure the girl was smoking and not paying attention when she ran into my aunt. There was no skid marks at all so if she tried to stop, it wasn't until she was right up on her. So after all the paper work was filled out, my mom had a wrecker that they use at the dealership she works for come pick it up and tow it there so she could go ahead and get the paperwork started tonight on it. Then I took my aunt home and waited while she called the insurance company to file a claim so I could take all the numbers to mom. Luckily, my aunt wasn't hurt. She is pretty stiff and I expect she will be worse in the morning but nothing that required an ambulance or anything.

As for me, I'm exhausted. I obviously couldn't drive with the boot on so I've been running around without it all night. So my foot is throbbing pretty good now. So I'm going to sign off for the night and put this foot up. I have to take my aunt to get a rental car in the morning and to mom's work to sign some paperwork, so I'll be late checking in.

Goodnight, Everyone!!!!!!
