My daughter rode her first rollercoaster and she loved it! She wants one that goes upside down. So, we may try to go back this Saturday. My son loves the rides that spin around, so I'll spend a good protion of the day very dizzy!
Anyway, I'm already looking toward the weekend! Hope you all have a good Wednesday!
ours does not open until May 5th.
So glad your daughter had a good time.

I case your wonderig am not getting paid.i get petrol money if i have to go down to there house
They have no one else to do it as there is just no that cares, and the way i look at it. if god sees am trying to help he will keep my family and animals safe so that wood be payment enough

forget all that and have a great day anyway!!!

I finally have cleaned up and I am taking the rest of the day off and I am debating whether or not to take him to the vet. Anyways he is acting better now..I gave him some water and he is laying on the bed next to me now. So I am going with the wait and see approach. Thanks for listening to my story!!! have a great day everyone!
poor Snowball, hope he feels better soon, any idea what is wrong with him?

I'll be trying to check in here every once in awhile untill I can manage the stairs a little bit better (a little hard to do with the crutches right now), I'm hoping that by the end of the week, that I will be using just a cane or something. I happy that it's over with and that when it heals, I'll be good as new!
will pray you heal quick!

She loves the fall semester because it all leads up to Christmas...I think the same way too. so snowball is better and I think we are going to take a short nap...I am really missing Louann right now..she always talked me through times like this. But snowball does want to thank yall for carin about him he is sleeping like a baby right now so that is good...talk to yall later!
Brandi will feel much better when she can relax again!
Glad that snowball is feeling better, give her a big hug from me!

After that, we picked up some dinner to take home. Bourbon chicken (which doesn't have actual bourbon in it) is really good stuff. Nancy made fun of me because I like to eat stuff like that with chop sticks. It makes me eat slower so I can't just shovel it in like I do with a fork. I had enough leftover for lunch today. Win!

The kids have to accrue 25 hours per year of community service (usually help with needy, church functions, etc.) while in HS to move on to the next grade, and Jacob is 7 hour short. So the City of Bellville is working him this week. He's picking up trash by the road, and running a weed-eater. That'll teach him to wait till the last minute!

I hope y'all have a great day!
wow, I think all schools should do that. great idea! what's HS stand for? High school?

And am shocked at th e price of a bread. that sounds really expensive. over here a loaf of bread is from 99p to Ģ1.20 .
Does it not cost a lot to buy 10 newpapers. what am trying to say is by the time you buy the papers to get the coupons does it still make it worth while
[/COLOR]
yeah my newspapers are $7.50 for 10 of them. my groceries today were $125 & I paid out of pocket $44. not too bad.
