The bad news is though, I have to wear this boot for another 2 weeks since it's not completely healed. Boo!!!!! After those 2 weeks are up, I can go back to my normal shoe and walk but I'm supposed to go another 6 weeks without pain. Then I can slowly build myself back up to where I was before over the next 6 weeks. Way to drawn out for me but at least it will be winter and I won't want to be outside walking as much anyways. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
That is fantastic news abut your foot. I hope you continue to make a full recovery soon. After all it's the busiest time of year we all need to be in good shape !

My Dad is in the middle of a biopsy on his vertebrae right now - hoping & praying all is going well there! Has me nervous this morning! My sister took him. She just sent a text that the girl who brought him back for the procedure is from town here. Small world.

Hope you are all having a great day!
You and your Dad are in my thoughts and prayers. You must be so worried. I hope the procedure went smoothly and you can know more about the situation as soon as possible.

He said that I am not in any danger if I do not take them, so I am just going to leave it alone. I'll see if it's still an issue in 10-15 years and then go from there.

Thanks for all of your well wishes, thoughts, and prayers! It's amazing what they can do
Hey that is wonderful news! I am glad everything is fine. I also have an elevated heartbeat, I guess it's just one of those things. I am always on the go though, I can't sit still. Glad you are ok!

Tonight is the first family-night supper we've had a Nancy's parents' since her mom got sick last year. I'm looking forward to that.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Hope you and the family enjoyed a lovely dinner and evening.

I'm going to the field tomorrow - all by myself. I hope for the best. :] Best wishes to all!
Goodluck today in the field, you will do great!

Busy day today! About to have dinner at my cousin's - scrambled eggs. Yum!!!

Be MERRY!
Hope you had a nice dinner and got some time to unwind after your busy day.

Hope it all passes soon, hang in there. Thoughts and prayers you way .

I had a busy, but nice day at work. I created a display of Christmas dinnerware, and another of Yankee Candles!

My favorite new scent is one called Santa's Pipe- the scent reminds me of a pipe that my Grandpa smoked. I will have to pick one up!

We have employee appreciation coming up, and we get an extra discount!!

What a lovely way to spend a work day! Santa's Pipe sounds magical, I would love to smell what it's like.

I work tonight, so I need to go lay down. I hope you're all having a great evening. Enjoy what is left of it. I will talk to you all tomorrow! God Bless and keep smiling! Tomorrow is another Pines Day!
Hope you had a good night at work and it wasn't to busy.

Just thought I would come in for a quick hello. My mornings are a little interesting now. This morning, I began my first official day as a supply teacher. I received a call this morning, but it was too late for me to make it to the school on time. I also had to spend $300 to fix my car. That really hurt. At least the car has now been fixed and it should not give me any problems for a while... I need it to last since I will probably be driving about 45 minutes (on average) to work everyday.

Anyway, I am really hoping to get a call soon for tomorrow. I need the money and experience! Have a great Tuesday evening, everyone! The final 'Pines Day before the beginning of the Christmas Season is nearly upon us!

I have a question though since I'm new here... What is the Special Post Series?

Thanks!
Congrats on starting as a supply teacher. How was your first day in the classroom with the children? At least the car is now fixed, it sounds like you will be using it a lot. Fingers crossed you get a call to go in today.

Unfortunately I doubt life will calm down any until right before christmas. So I'll drop in if I have time. Just to share some of the happy things that happened the last two or three weeks:

My work team and I celebrated the birth of a healthy little daughter to one of my co-workers. Her name is Aylin (which is the turkish version of Eileen, but they pronounce it like Eileen), she was born on October 28th.

My sunday school team meeting went very well. We have the childrens christmas church service well covered.

I was babysitting two very energized two boys (age 8 and 12) last thurstday. Who made the couple hours I watched them, very entertaining. I just love those two!

I hope you are all well and happy.

See you later!
Nice to see you Ceteca , glad to know you are well and everything is going ok with you. Take care and hope you get a chance to visit again soon.

Thank you. Although my friend, who did the survey last year, said it's very complicated and it takes ages to do it, and I only have 3 weeks. Ouch!

Thank you. Speaking about the course, sometimes I feel it's not the one I should be doing. Sometimes I feel that the course is not me - if you know what I mean?...

That's great! I hope snow won't melt. :]

Good morning to all! I'm getting ready to go the field. I don't have any formal classes today and the forecast says it's not going to rain which means I won't get soaked. Good day to start working on the survey. ^^ Hope you all have a good day, and I will see you in the evening! Best wishes. xx

Sorry Snowflake, I walked away for a few minutes last night and Tapatalk wouldn't let me log back in when I got back!
Anyway, Maggie is still coughing. The poor thing. I am supposed to call the doctor back when she finishes her medicine. She has three more doses left. She's taking it every other day so I will be calling soon. It looks like she may be going back for another xray of the lungs. I will keep you posted, xo.

Morning HMG,
So sorry to read that Maggie is still not well. The xray sounds like the next best step. Praying it's nothing serious..
