Have a MERRY day!!!
We are in a flood zone and have had water in our basement. We panic when we hear the pump go on, sometimes it just can't keep up. So happy to hear nothing has been damaged!

We were there for almost four hours for both the funeral and the luncheon. As we went through the funeral Mass, I (in my mind) used CM3's name along with Frank's. It was really a touching ceremony.
Sounds like a beautiful service, Seawaters. (((Hugs))) xo

She is with a big group of friends but I still don't like it. I guess I could use the time alone to figure out what her punishment will be!
I can see why you're upset. Sending (((hugs))) to you. Xo

Just wanted to say good night to all of you...not much new to report on my end.
Looking forward to a quiet weekend with only a small celebration to attend tomorrow for my niece's daughter turning 5.
I like quiet weekends!
I'll be checking in though...take care friends!
