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!
Thinking of Nancy!!

I bet you love seeing Elizabeth's dance recitals, and that you're one proud papa!

I schedule that when I'm ready, and it's $100 to take the test. Luckily for me, there's an approved testing facility here in town, about 10 minutes from our place. There's only three in the state. I take my certificate, and calculator when I'm ready. The course itself has costed about $750 so far, so not too bad. But, once I pass the test & start up my business, that's when it gets expensive.

Good morning, friends!!

It's a humid & rainy day here, with a High of 72 degrees. Later this week, it'll be getting cold again. Rain & SNOW showers, highs in the upper 30's on Thursday, LOL. Wow!!

My parents are coming back up north to spend a few days with me while Adrian goes on a trip with his dad. I'm looking forward to it!!

Today, I will get back to my review & catch up on laundry.

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!

We were swamped yesterday at work! Everyone was out gardening and buying up tons of plants, seeds, fertilizer and more. We also had those coming in to buy up chicks, ducks and geese. We finally got the baby geese in and they are just wayyyyyyyyyyy too adorable! I love the way they get very excited when they see someone and "talk" to you! I end up giving them all hugs!

No matter how busy we get at work it goes very smoothly. We just have the best customers with lots of patience, the best boss, owner and employees. All of us employees stay really happy through it all, cut up with each other and have good conversation with those who come in to shop. I get completely worn out by the end of the day but love working there!

Thanks for everyone's well wishes to my mom. I really admire my mom! She will be 71 in June and seriously has way more energy than I do. I am so jealous!!! She did get out yesterday because she was bouncing off the walls with energy. I keep working very hard to exercise often, ride my bike, do yoga, eat healthy (most of the time) and still don't have the energy she has. I am always complaining I'm tired and she never seems to be tired! As I always say, "When I grow up I want to be just like my mommy"!

Look at the little goslings! They are just so cute. (not taken from work, just a googled image). I will try to take some pictures of our critters next time I am in.

They are precious!!!

That's a new one on me, too.

Thanks for the prayers!

That is so true! Your brother said it best, they really are cute at that age!

My dad especially! He comes over just about every day to use Wayne's computer while Wayne is at work. We have all those stray kitties that come visit us to get fed. My dad comes over and sees the bowl empty and he will feed them. It's always empty by the time he is over, we feed them in the morning and my dad is over around noon, lunch time! Those cats look for him and when he pulls up they run as fast as they can to my house! It's really cute watching my dad interact with the cats, they meow real loud at him, he pets them, feeds them and gives them water. One day he pulled up in a rental car while his was in the shop and the cats didn't know who it was at first. They ran off then they realized it was him when he got out and ran back up to the house. He has those cats spoiled just as much as we do. We have never asked him to do this, he just has a calling to care for animals. My dad really is cute! =)

Here is a comment on one of Michael Buble's video on youtube (top comment) that always cracks me up.

"first man crush..... feels awkward...."

Did your hubby post that???

You can see the comment at the top. The video is really good, making of, All I Want for Christmas is You. Show your husband that and ask if he posted it. Ha ha!






Also, good luck to you!!!

Praying for Nancy! I have had to wear that a couple of times and so has my son when he was only 16. He has mitral valve prolapse but doing fine!

You sound like a proud daddy! Happy for Elizabeth!
