4 hours?? I'd have a migraine by the time it's done.

Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

I wasn't on here at all this weekend, and I feel a little out-of-the-know. It was such a busy weekend with Elizabeth's dance recital Saturday night, and working with my son to earn his community service hours for school. The kids got in the pool Sunday afternoon and were having so much fun, I jumped in, too...for about 15 seconds. WOW, that was some cold water!

Nancy had to wear one of those 24 hour heart monitor things (a holter monitor) all day Saturday, and we turned it back in to the hospital yesterday afternoon. They called back as soon as we got home. Something went wrong and it didn't record a thing...LOL. She actually felt fine this weekend, but I'm taking her to see my cardiologist today, just to be sure.

Elizabeth's dance recital was this weekend, and next weekend is her ballet recital. I'm learning more about dance than I ever thought I'd ever know.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good Monday morning everyone.

Our visit to Gardner Webb University for 'junior day' went well. It is a Baptist college and Ethan was impressed they opened the day with prayer and ended the prayer "in Jesus name." I feel better about sending our child and our $ to a University were the name of Christ is honored. The academics are highly rated. They have about 4,100 students so it is relatively small, (although it still seems large to Ethan; we only have 5,000 people in our county).

It was a tough day for me. College is still a year away but this is this start of the process. I kept a lump in my throat most of the day. We still have several other schools to visit.

Have a blessed day everyone.

Good Morning MMC!!!!!!!! It's going to be a warm day here with a high in the low 70's. Then tomorrow the 80's return. Boo!!!! The pollen level is also through the roof. So it's going to be a miserable week for me. I'll survive though. Today, I'm going to try to get back on schedule. I have some cleaning to do, laundry to get caught up on, and some phone calls to make. I'll need to email QVC again about CIJ. So I'm off to get started. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!

We are praying for Nancy.

It is not warm enough to go swimming here. It stays cool and rainy. We had heavy rains over the weekend. My neighbors pulled a 120 lb doe out of a creek below our house. It hadn't been shot, we could only guess it got caught in the swift water and drowned. That was a first for me.
