Good morning my fellows Christmas friends. It appears the babysitter is sick so had to call out of work to take care of the little princess. So three day weekend and lots of playing can't beat that.

Darn! I was hoping to get caught up and reply to some more post but have to run again! Going to plant flower seeds with my granddaughter and work on some puzzles together. Washing laundry, cleaning house, mopping floors, blah blah blah, etc. etc. etc.!

Well, going to crank up the tunes and get with it. It will be a fabulous Monday! Have a great day my friends!!!

Welcome back, Crown! I hope opening the cottage went smoothly! You're welcome for "filling in" over the weekend. A little late with Saturday's post, but glad I could contribute! As for the classy style, I/we all learn from the best!

Good morning everyone!

Busy day ahead. In fact, busy week! Today, I have a doctor's appointment at lunch. After work, I have to go to the gym and then from there it is straight to a "Learn to Play" clinic, followed by tryouts. I can move around enough to help out at the clinic. As for tryouts, I'm not moving anywhere near how I want to be quite yet, so I will be on the sideline, once again. My fingers are crossed for some good news at the doctor this afternoon.

Overall, it was a busy weekend. Glad I can look forward to a new week and we can all look forward to starting a new month on Wednesday. May has almost arrived! Also, my dad should be driving in from the Sault on Friday, too. I haven't seen him since just before New Years. It will be great to hangout with, once again. Just in time for the NHL playoffs, too!

The forecast is looking great for the week! Highs are to reach the low 20s and lows are not expected to dip below 10s. 70s and 50s. Very nice! Well, I should return to my work. I have a bit of work I need to remove from my desk... especially since it is my last week here!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

Hello everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend! It was a busy one for us, and the busy will continue this week. But, next week slows way down and my countdown to vacation the first week of June officially begins! We're going to Kansas City for a few days, and I can't wait!

Hope you all have a great Monday!

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!
Praying that Nancys appointment goes well!

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.
I'm happy that your visit went well, the college sounds wonderful!

Hello friends, greetings from flood ravaged Peoria. It's been quite awhile since I checked in. I sure did miss you wonderful folks. I hope everyone is well and I hope to catch up on some of the happenings.
