Okay, just crank up the hubbies fan next time then.

Not sure why they listed a book in the DVD section. I do see some DVD's around 7 bucks that are in good condition.

For those wondering what the heck we are talking about, Martha Stewart Halloween DVD. For some reason when Judesmama and I were talking buying it several months ago they were over 30 bucks! Not spending that kind of money but now they dropped below 10 bucks! Her and I already bought the Christmas one and I bought the Thanksgiving one too.

Judesmama, did you ever get the Thanksgiving one?
I'm going to join match to see if me and Martha are a good fit for each other.

We only live a couple blocks from the school, and in Bellville that means about 100 yards away.

I don't mind them walking, but Nancy insists on someone picking them up.

I predict a Rumble in the Bronx when I get home.
Good luck! I hope it wasn't too bad!

I am counting down as well. This will be our big vacation, but we will still take little trips like weekend camping trips and we'll go to amusement parks and those types of things, to keep the kids entertained over the summer, but I am looking forward to this trip - Myrtle Beach, SC for a whole week!

What up my gorgeous peeps?
we finally had sunshine today, it was such a nice day. I finally got the yard mowed too, yaay!

I think I want to get a few flowers to plant, just gotta decide which kinds. I had to cut back 1 of my knockout rose bushes. It was crowded & covering another perennial flower under it. I hope it will be ok, last time I did that it didn't turn out so good.
