Just checking in trying to get caught up with all the posts and seeing what everyone's up today. I had this really great idea yesterday, to try and tackle this huge pile of dirt and attempt to move it all over to my In-laws house. It was full of these large pieces of concrete, stones and clay and had been sittting there for about 5 years.

Needless to say, it was all by hand (shovel and wheelbarrow) and uphill to boot. Wheew, by the end of the day yesterday, I was about 1/3 of the way completed and so was I... I got up this morning and I forgot about how many muscles the human body has; ha-ha and everyone of them hurts! Oh baby, did a hot tub feel good to soak in! So today, I'm taking it a little easy, spending the day working on home videos again (still in my pj's - "what a bum", lol).

In a couple of hours, we are going to head over to Bertucci's for dinner (Oh, can't beat their brick oven fired thin crust pizzas) and besides, my son, his girlfriend and best friend all work there so we're going to go over there and harrass them for a little while, best of all he can wait on us, (he loves that part) lol... Then it will be on the road to drop my daughter back off at college later (spring break is over for her) and then hopefully, get back in time tonight to watch the Hobbit tonight; the mrs bought it for me yesterday.

Weekends, why can't they last longer? Man, it seems like they just fly by and before you know it, it's Monday morning and off to work again...Yuck; I think that should be outlawed....Oh well, I think a big bowl of ice cream and a movie is well deserved tonight....

Good afternoon, MMC friends! How are you all? I am well. Just sitting here relaxing, watching one of my favorite shows and going to catch up here a little bit. DH had to teach today and had to leave early, so the kids went with him to his parents house. They still aren't home yet...not sure when they will be.

What is new with all of you? Not much going on here. I am off tonight. We're supposed to get another snow storm. As of right now, they are calling for 3-6 inches of snow. I am glad I don't have to drive in it.

Any plans for tonight? I don't know if we have anything planned or not. We will probably just stay home and hang out.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday! I am going to get caught up on the posts. God Bless and keep smiling!

Instead of going to Louisville or Detroit, I convinced all of you to just fly here to Indianapolis. That way we were in between Santa Claus, Indiana and Bronners. Then Instead of renting hotel rooms, all of you stayed here at my apartment building since all of my neighbors have spare bedrooms and air mattresses. It was like a giant sleep over that involved setting up a TV in the yard for Christmas movies and Caroling in the middle of summer. Then we went out and rented a couple of passenger vans and made an overnight trip to Santa Claus, IN. Then we came back here for a few days show I could show you around town. Then we made another overnight trip up to Bronner's and camped out in tents in Meceka's front yard. It was a blast and a little weird. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
That sounds awesome! I love that idea!
