Good morning, everyone! Sorry I've been absent for a week or so, but it's been soooo incredibly busy here at my house. I know I try to check in at least say hi, but like I said, it's just been non-stop. If I try to tell you everything that's been going on with my kids activities, you will get bored reading!

Anyway, how are you all doing? We've been doing very well. I had a great week with my kids. DH was very busy - he worked his normal days and took a class all week, so that made me extra busy, on top of everything else, but we had a lot of fun, everyday.

As far as the weekend, he's actually away now, at the Pitt vs. Navy game, which it's at Navy (in Annapolis, MD). The kids and I are spending the day watching Halloween specials on Disney Jr., then this evening, we have a Halloween parade EA will be twirling in. My sister and boyfriend will take DS, that way he can watch it.

Tomorrow will be just spent relaxing, since I head back to work tomorrow night. I know I've missed a lot on here, important things as well. Know that I am thinking of all of you. Miss all of you dearly and pray for all of you daily as well!

I am off to read the post for today. God Bless and keep smiling!

This has been the neatest thread. I discovered it as soon as it started last year. I put the milestones in my ical. When one comes up I take a screen pic and send it to our boys in college. It sure has helped time go by faster. Thanks

Good morning everyone!

It's another chilly October morning in Ottawa. Lots to do today. I have a big interview on Monday. I have to go to a friend's house. He is going to help me prepare. The interview is for a temporary teaching position until the end of January. Yes, I could have temporarily have my own classroom. Crazy, isn't it? I just need to prepare a lot this weekend. With all this, I am going to need to send in my resignation for my current job. On top of this, I keep receiving phone calls to supply teach. If I don't get the temporary position, I will be making myself available to supply as of a week from Monday.

Things are changing for me, aren't they? I have went from no employment for a month to too much employment! I feel terrible for resigning from my position after only three weeks, but this is the profession that I have been chasing for the past two and a half years. I hope they understand.

I should get going. I have a busy day ahead. And, yes, this day also includes going to the mall to search for Christmas decorations! Very excited!

Have a great Saturday, everyone! The weekend has arrived. It's the final one of October. Let's enjoy it.

I tried several times to send this last night, but I had no luck; so here goes again! I found this site when I googled "retro kitchen" searching for items to match the red knobs of the Wolf stove. I fell in love with this site! Brad, is this your hometown?

I am sure your employer will understand, especially if you mentioned it prior to being hired. I am excited for you, Brent. Best of luck in your search for a wonderful vocation!

Have a great weekend, friend.

Extra hugs & prayers for Maggie! Hope she has a good day 💜

Thank you Snowflake!
I have not seen that show on Animal Planet. Sounds very interesting, I should try and catch it sometime.
Thank you for keeping Maggie in your prayers. Sending hugs back to you and Harlowe! 💕
Have a great time when you go out to lunch today.
Have a wonderful day!
