We're about done with our home improvements but some of them have caused some drainage issues in the yard...It's always something...We'll work to get that fixed...And our fireplace is working, there was a chill in the air! Now all we need to do is crank up a Christmas movie on the newly mounted TV and it will be home!

JayIsh
Enjoy your home & let us know what Christmas movie you pick to christen your TV with!

Hope the drainage issue is an easy fix.

Take care, Jay!

Good afternoon everyone! Just getting home and undressed out of uniform and getting comfy. I am also waiting for the FedEx truck to come and we seem to always be at the end of a route. UPS also.lol Sometimes UPS comes as late as 7pm here fedex usually alittle quicker. The weather is warming up. This morning was cloudy windy and cool,about an hour ago the sun came out and warmed up the temps to around 72F. Well wifey gets home soon too with my buddies I missed them a lot today so I can't wait to see them. Have a great afternoon everyone I have a lot of catching up here!

I'm sorry you're having such a tough time! I'll send a prayer for you and your family.

I am so sorry to hear this... I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. It seems so unfair though with 10 years history I just think it's a little shady.Everything works out though so who knows maybe something 10x better is going to come along. In the meantime I hope you get to feeling better!!!hang in there!!
