Headed to sleep soon.


Good night MMC!

Thanks, Snowflake. Not sure what is wrong, just no energy. I slept most of the day yesterday and still went to bed at the regular time. I feel somewhat better but not 100%.

I am trying, CAH. We have to go out of town, go to a meeting, spend the night, and then return home tomorrow. I will be glad to feel some energy. Thanks for your thoughts.

I am afraid to ask: What are mountain pies?

Happy Belated Memorial Day! How was your day yesterday? Mine was lovely! Lots of family time. I of course had to work Sunday night until yesterday morning. I got home around 8, I did some cooking, then had to have EA at parade line-up around 9:30 for baton. We marched in the parade, which she did a fabulous job. She's so cute. She doesn't do much of the routine yet - he instructor says she does it well during practice, but then during the parades, she pays attention to more what is going on around her. You don't blame her at all, only being 3. It's so cute! For any of you who are friends with me on Facebook, I posted a picture of her!

We had a picnic then after that. It was a blessed day. My mom and dad, sister and her boyfriend came. We had wonderful food and fellowship. DH made a fire later on. Around 5, I starting nodding off. The fire was making me sleepy. We were planning on doing hot dogs, mountain pies, that kind of thing, but I was really getting tired and I think the kids were too. I stayed up until around 7 and just couldn't do it anymore. I came in and did a few things around the house and hit the sack. I got up this morning around 7:30. I haven't slept that long, oh, since I can remember! Probably when I've only been sick, but I needed it.

Today, EA has preschool and we just have a lot of running around to do here later on. DS will be with us, so it will be a nice day!

Well, I am off to read some of the Countdown. I hope you're all doing well and you enjoyed the holiday yesterday. Have a great day and talk to you all later. God Bless and keep smiling!

Good morning everyone! Where did our 3 day weekend go???

I had this really wonderful Idea that I would stain my new back deck this past Saturday, which then continued into all day Sunday which then extended into half a day yestrerday... 20 hours later and I'm still not 100% done yet, Ugggh I still have some touch ups to do and some more cutting in yet in places. Moral of the story... TREX is the way to go!

Saturday night, we received a call from our son (5 minutes only) but it was a really nice surprise; (he's in his 4th week in boot camp, Air Force), he's doing really well and he said he really misses us. He said he has learned that by being there, he now has learned to appreciate all the things that we have ever done for him in the past... "We were hoping that that would happen", I believe he needed and got a reality check, lol...

Well, my countdown clock has officially started for the start of our vacation (Universal Studios/ Sea World, Orlando FL). Ahhhhh yes, 10 days in sunny Florida... I'm ready now!!!

I hear you on the temps. I absolutely hate the hot weather. It is cool again here today, so I can't really complain. I am sure I will enjoy it when I feel better. So I will be here to whine right along with you! Do you have enough pencils sharpened for those stories?

Then the high's will go back to being in the mid 70's for a few days. Not much going on here today. I opened my bedroom closet this morning and had an avalanche of winter clothes fall off the shelfs and on to me, so I guess I'll spend some time getting them all packed away. I also expect my buddy to show up so I will spend the afternoon getting more stories for my movie. Actually I think im working on the sequel now. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a nice surprise it must've been to hear from your son!! Glad he's doing well, and having wonderful, appreciative thoughts, and memories of his family.

Vacation countdowns are the best!!

I'm still trying to decide which stain to use on the deck I built last year! that TREX is good stuff, I used it on my front porch, but it's too expensive to use on my pool deck...it's too big!

We love Universal and SeaWorld, too, but this year it's 10 days in the Smoky Mountains. Ahhhhh, indeed!

Glad your son is doing well. Thank him again for his service!

We had a quiet Memorial Day- Adrian wasn't feeling well, so we lounged around the house. We ate well, though! We had grilled pork chops, loaded baked potatoes, and green beans. It rained & stormed most of the day.

How was your holiday?

I need to go grocery shopping today or tomorrow, study, and prepare for my cousins that come on Friday. So excited!!

Have a wonderful & blessed day, friends!!
