Good evening, Christmas family! Hope your day is going well! All is well here. DH left for work a little while ago and my sister just got here to watch the kids, since I work tonight too, so now we're just trying to figure out what we're going to do for dinner.

What is everyone up to this evening? Nothing really going on here. We're just going to sit here, relax, and have family time. Any plans for anyone?

Well, I am going to go figure out dinner - nothing really to post I guess! I will stop back in later before laying down for my nap before work. Hope you all enjoy your evening. God Bless and keep smiling!

Good afternoon, MMC!

Today I went out looking for store stock - found quite a few items at a book sale at the local library. I also found quite a few items for me, too. A friend I went to high school with was there - we caught up on several years in a few minutes due to appointments I had, but we are planning on getting together for lunch one of these days. It was nice to see her!

The meds Mouse received yesterday have kicked in - she seems better, but it is still way to early to tell if she really is or not. It was nice to see her looking out the window and wandering around the house getting into things.

Be safe and MERRY!!!

Hello everyone!
I am just about ready to put dinner on the table. I made a big pot of chicken soup and biscuits. My two oldest are outside washing the cars right now and my youngest is doing some homework. My parents surprised us with a visit this afternoon, it was good to see them. I need to run out after dinner and pick up a couple of prescriptions and then I will be in for the night. I hope everyone is well and having a great day so far!!
