That's great that your daughter took your advice, it's funny that she waited so long!

I did the same thing as CS's daughter, my parents asked me to wait & I did. Until I was 25! I still have my belly button pierced, and take good care of it. I have never had an infection =)

LOL, they are funny! They never even told us last week that it changed. We were supposed to get 1-1 inches, and got 9.5!

Stay safe!

I spent most of my day laying down, I also canceled out on taking my boys to Cub Scouts tonight, just did not feel up to it.

The Bruins won an exciting game, I tried napping but I couldn't not watch the game.

I have tomorrow off, usual day off, so one more day to rest and hopefully get better. I really don't want to go to the doctor.

Good night, everyone.
Praying that you feel better tomorrow! Get plenty of rest, friend.

Goodnight~

It was 60 at 2:00 pm, now we stand at 45. It's going to keep dropping until it hits around 15 tomorrow night around 6:00 pm. Gonna be chilly, but not as cold as some of you! Y'all stay warm!

I'm off, time to head to bed. No ballgames tomorrow night, but it will still be a heck of day. I've got some rough stuff to deal with. Hope some of the involved parties cooled down over the weekend.

Y'all have a great week!
What a great day, coach!

Stay warm, as well~

My thoughts & prayers are with you for tomorrow.

Good evening, Christmas family~

It was a good day at work, but I am exhausted! Got caught up on the posts, and am headed to bed shortly.

I have a few doctor appointments in the morning, so I may not see you until the afternoon sometime.

Hope you all had a great start to your week!

Goodnight & sweet dreams!

xx

My girls aren't big fans of soup either. My daughter once said to me that soup isn't real food!



I hope you are getting plenty of rest and feel better soon!
My family say "soup isn't a meal mum it's a drink."

So the doctor at the ER thinks it's an ulcer. So they told her what to take and if it's not better in a couple of days, she is supposed to follow up with her regular doctor.

So needless to say, I didn't get anything done today. I also see that I am way behind on here. I'll try to get back here later and catch up but I won't make any guarantee's.
OUCH!!!! Hope she feels better soon.

Have a great evening, everyone!

My kids are tight with their own money so during that phase I told them they could have it if they could tell me all about the process, had a look at the tattoo parlours, checked the artistic skills of the people who do it (don't want a swallow that looks like pteradactyl!!), got quotes and they had to pay. One of my sons bought the belly ring for his younger sister for her birthday. I waited a lot longer for mine!!!
