Donna is really stiff and sore, can hardly turn her head. Many bruises and a very sore back. She showed me pictures of the wreak and I am praising the Lord she is alive and able to basically walk away from it.
She is also having trouble keeping on track when talking, but after the bang on the head that is not surprising.
It was nice to visit with her.
I will be looking after her wee dog while someone drives her back up there to retrieve all her things from the truck, which is a write off. They are going on Friday and will be back on Saturday.
Thank you all for your prayers.

Homemakingirl, I don't know how you and the rest of the stay at home parents do it. God bless you for all you do for your families. A day at work is so much easier.

I will be back later for the festivities. I am SO looking forward to it!!!
Congrats on the new car!! Can't wait to see pictures!!

I've just had shivers although I don't usually get them. I wasn't in the forum when CM3 was here - God bless her - but I'm very touched by your post. Honestly. Thank you for sharing these thoughts.



I couldn't resist from saying that you two guys look beautiful together.
Thank you so much, Victoria!!

Traffic understands me on this, thank goodness. Since it's coming in so late, she says "do what you can." She knows I'll give it my best shot, but I'm not going to kill myself to get through the whole thing. I'm out of the office on Thursday, Friday, and Monday---doing some early Christmas prep and visiting Russell's Garden Center in Wayland to see their Christmas merchandise. (They advertise on MMC---I've seen their banners now and then!)
Oh man, good luck. At least they know you can only do so much.
Just one more day to get through!
Enjoy your long weekend, and Christmas prep!

Made - you did a great job! Roads were ok for the drive, we had snow on the ground, it snowed some while we were shopping & it started snowing again about 10 minutes from home!!! Perfect!



Snowflake - I thought about you in TJ Max today! I saw & sniffed the Santa's Pipe candle. That one really had my curiosity up! I did like it!! I was unsure - I didn't buy it, but I did like it! Then I had to laugh b/c we all met up front by the door when we were done shopping & the manager (very friendly) came over & asked if we were part of a tour group!!! We had 15 neighbor ladies today - quite the crew! We told him we were all neighbors on our own little tour!! He thought that was pretty cool! We had LOTS of fun!!!

Ok - now I need to go through my packages to see what I all bought today!! But I'll be back to read the special post & hopefully all the rest!!! YAY!!!!

Hope you are all having a great day/night!!!
Haha!! Love it!! Sounds like an awesome day. Glad you guys had a blast!

Santa's Pipe smells wonderful, huh?!

I may still get it..

Hope you found some cool things today!
