I hope you all have a great day!
Praying your remodel finishes up quickly and that your's daughter's dog does well in surgery.

When she wakes up from naps she never cries, she always has a big smile on her face! She has even woke up a little during a nap and will smile real big then fall back to sleep. She doesn't fight taking a naps either, if she is tired she just goes to sleep! Most baby and kids fight it. She got better later during the day and they said she seemed to be better last night.

The kids will be here shortly and sure hope she is better. If not, she will be going to the doctor.
Hope she is better today!

Hope your granddaughter feels better soon, Christmas-a-Holic. I am so paranoid about fevers with kids because my son has had febrile seizures due to high fevers in the past (not to scare you or anything!). I gave him anything he wanted to eat (popsicles, ice cream, whatever!) and lots of lukewarm baths. So sad when a baby gets sick..

Brad, I hope your remodel comes to an end very soon. No fun at all, but worth it in the end! And give that pup extra hugs tonight... my cats were so goofy after they got fixed and just wanted to be held!

My son brought in the mail I looked down to see "Santa's Choice" (order food stuff and pay all year so it gets delivered by Christmas)

Made me think some more of Christmas and coming here to see how everyone is doing....again.

Good afternoon, everyone!!

For some reason, I was incredibly tired this morning. I blame it on the restless sleep I had last evening. Sleep is hard to come by when it is 25C (76F) outside and probably about 30C in the apartment with no central air or air conditioning... only fans.

Anyway, I made it through my first morning at the new job. It seems to be going quite well. A big thanks to everyone for the well wishes!! They have certainly helped.

It's another scorcher in Ottawa today. 100F with the humidex!! About 92F without. You cannot step outside without sweating. It's quite impressive. The weather is certainly making up for a rain-filled summer last year. Still a few more months to go, so we'll see how it pans out.

Wednesday and the count continues to get smaller. I went to visit a friend at lunch and a lady in his store said that she was excited to have gotten a few people "out of the way." She then said that she didn't like leaving everything until Christmas because she did not "like the crowds." Well, this made me excited!! Someone else who is thinking about Christmas already!! All I could do was smile! Anyway, I should get back to the new job. Don't want to get in trouble on the first day.

Have a great day, everyone!!

Well, we just signed the paperwork for the house. I hope this is it and they accept our offer and it goes through smoothly!!!! We'll see!
