My son and his girlfriend's family will be leaving within the next few days from Maryland for Phoenix. The movers are coming tomorrow and Joshua and Missy will be leaving Tuesday to drive to St. Louis to visit his dad and then on to Phoenix. He has plans to stop in Amarillo and eat at that steak house where the dinner is free if you can eat the 96 oz. steak!!! I think he will be paying for his dinner! It is time for some TV and then beddy-bye. TTYT

I'm having fun with my Mom & Dad, and as always, there's lots going on here =]

After a very nice brunch, we came back to hang out here at their house. My sister, Shannon, and niece, Alyssa were here as well. Within a few minutes, my nephew Bill stopped by & brought my sister & Mom flowers. How sweet was that?! He's my sister's 24 year old stepson, but she practically raised him, my BIL had full custody. Then, Adrian showed up to spend some time with my Mom- very unexpected & thoughtful!! He had been at his parents @ 45 miles away. So, we just visited & I played with Alyssa & then we decided to all take a walk. Next, My Aunt Mary showed up out of the blue to wish us a Happy Mother's Day! It was like Grand Central Station!! After our walk, Shani & Alyssa left, and our neighbor & good family friend, Rich, stopped by to say hello. LOL. What a day!! We just finished a late supper, and we're all exhausted.

Going to watch some tv & crash soon.

Hope you're all doing well!!

Thinking of you & your Mom's today.

{{{Hugs}}}

Well, it's been a fun and not so fun weekend (sick kids and some things like that) but things are getting better. On the fun side, my wife graduated with her Master's and we were all at least able to attend, so that was great! I'm very proud of her.

I hope you all have a great Sunday!
Wonderful news about your wife's success! Sorry the weekend wasn't as good as it could have been.

My daughter will be home from school this Tuesday, but my son won't be home from the boot camp (Air Force) until sometime around the end of June/ beginning of July. We may even delay celebrating Fathers Day as well when it comes around.

We may do this Mother/ Fathers day all in one day when both of our children are home, and then we will all be together again!

Have fun everyone and enjoy your day with your Families....
Sounds like a great idea!

ChristmasAholic - So glad to hear your mum's recovery is going well.

Brent - I hope you eventually find a job you are more passionate about but it's great that you are staying positive about your current one.

Seawaters - I bet you are excited about your trip!! Sounds like you are well prepared for it too!

Hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day yesterday! Mothers Day in England is actually in March so a pretty normal day for me yesterday! I feel a lot better this morning so I think this cold is leaving me. Hope you all have a great day!

That is so cool Star, to still be having some snowfall (even if it is just a bit), in the middle of May. Ha, you guys got more snow in the month of May, then what we received total in the past two years; lol.... Have fun and enjoy the snow.

I hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day.....

Good Morning, Friends.

Another new week begins.
And these weeks are really adding up as we move well into the year.

Just look at the statistics:
Days to the Season: 184
Days to Christmas Day: 226
Hey, now!
Day after tomorrow.
The HALF WAY Milestone to Christmas Season 2013.
Seems incredible. So soon!

We had a return to cooler weather yesterday but it was sunny and precip free.
Should be close to a carbon copy today.
After that, colder then hotter by late week -- possibly into the low 90's!
(Do we have to have these extremes? Maybe I'll move to Hawaii.)
It's currently 49 degrees here in the capital city.

Anyway, you have a Marvelous Moday, OK?
