Big sports night for Boston fans tonight, I am watching the Bruins right now, but flipping over on commercials to the Red Sox, they win tonight and they head to the World Series!!!

I am very tired again tonight, work is just kicking my butt lately, I can't wait until the turkey rush really starts. (jk)

Good night, everyone...


Enjoy your dinner tomorrow and good luck to your red sox!!!!!!

EEK....what a day!
Better tomorrow, that's my wish for you!

Friends, it's been a long day...I'm heading to bed. I hope you had a good day...

Plans for tomorrow include football, nascar, and the Little Bambina.....and lots and lots of coffee.

MerryCarey & xmas365, the only thing that will make a potential loss by the Tigers tonight not extremely disappointing is knowing that my friends' team won! Good luck!

Made, I hope you are better after all the mishaps today! Take it easy!!!
I feel the same way about the Sox, Meceka. If the Tigers win, they'll surely deserve it. This is quite a game so far!

I couldn't find the pumpkin coffee today. It must have gone quick, I definitely saw it last week. I will keep looking!

October 31st my hubs is having rotator cuff surgery. It's been slowing him down for years and he wouldn't do anything about it. Having the two little grandsons is making him realize he must do something about it in order to play with them. I hope it goes well and the recovery isn't horrible. I need him to help me crank out a bazillion spritz cookies afterall! LOL!
I hope all of you are doing well along with your families and I'm going to try to play catch up around here as I can. I have a wedding reception in an hour or so to attend.
Have a great evening!
I hope your husbands surgery goes well, sending prayers your way!
