Have fun with your girls night out!
Thanks, Star! Yes, he is one that if I turn my head for a minute, he is gone. He's very curious...

As you know, I had surgery this past week (Monday) and I am at home recovering; things are going good and I hope to be fully back on my feet within a week or two. On tuesday, My son left for the Air Force (bootcamp); he called yesterday and said everything was fine and gave us his mailing address.

We also got a call from my brother and informing us that my father was missing, the police found him unresponsive, in his car, up in Pennsylvania. They believe now that he had a stroke and got confused and drove to PA???. he is in the hospital, going thru tests and they still don't know the full extent of things.

And in the mix of everything, we are in the beginning stages of moving...

Now, when I read some of the posts here and see sometimes that some of you are having some heck of a time with everything that is happening to you all at once, I think to myself, "wow, that's awlful, and I feel so bad for them..." Now look at me, good Lord, it's almost like what possibly could go wrong is happening all at once, (I sure picked a good time to quit drinking...lol)

Well, that's my boo-hoo-hooing for the day, I feel all better now, I surelly hope that your week is alot better than mine has been. Hey, It's the weekend, It's time for some grilling and chilling.....
I'm so sorry for everything you've been enduring lately. I'll keep your entire family in my prayers. God Bless your son as well. Keep us updated on him and a speedy recovery for you and your dad as well.

Good morning, Day-late milestone celebrators! Or should I say, I apologize for not posting yesterday's milestone celebration on the correct date...

Again, sorry for being MIA yesterday. Kim and I had a very busy day that saw us (accidentally) biking about 50 kilometres (31 miles for my American friends). The wrong turns and frustrations caused me to be in such a rush - we had lots of plans all day - that I totally forgot that I was countdown lead for such a momentous milestone! Well, here it is... a day late. Sunday's count to follow shortly!

Hey-ho!
It's a Milestone Day-o!

Days to the Season: 200
Days to Christmas Day: 242
Look out the window, quick! Which window, you ask? Why, the 200-day to the Christmas Season Window!

Overall, yesterday was a nice day. You could tell that good weather was on its way. Despite the fact that temperatures only reached about 10c (50f), the sun was able to part the clouds and shine brightly a few times during the day. And it was warm! How did you celebrate your Milestone Saturday? I hope you did it well!

Hope you had a Stupendous Saturday! Again, please accept my most sincere apologies. That extra long bike ride filled with twists and turns and fighting with a jammed bike chain really threw my day off and made everything VERY rushed.

But, I'll see you in a few moments for today's count... ON TIME! Imagine that.
This is great! We get celebrate milestone day 2 days in a row...you are brilliant!

So between the food, the race, the laughing, and the talking about football....it was a great night.

Today, I'm going to sit here and drink coffee for the next few hours, then I'm going to go to work. After work, more nursery time and then I'm cooking supper for my lovely wife. She doesn't know it, but this is the day that we (just me and her) celebrate her becoming Dr. Wifey in 13 days....DR.!!!!!

So, I'm off....have a great day and I will catch y'all tonight!
sounds like a wonderful few days for you all!

It was nice but instead of running my errands we did some things for her. She needed a couple of things at the mall, we went to the seamstress to have a few things altered, and we finally had her IPhone fixed. I found someone who replaced the glass for $60. I was kind of nervous about not bringing it to Apple. Thankfully it came out perfect. Anyway, my husband cut the lawn after work today and then he decided to open the pool. This is early for us but he's excited about getting the yard ready for the summer. I'm getting tired but I think I'm going to read for a little while. The girls are all at parties so I guess I'll be up for a while. I hope everyone had a happy Friday!

I'm glad your daughter loves her new job!
