Boo! I usually pick a team to pull for when the playoffs start and LeBron is one of my favs. I was pulling for the Grizzlies when the playoffs started, but I just like having someone to pull for. I'm certainly not a true die-hard heat fan!

Catch 22 day here for ol' Ballcoach....

Good news...

Last day of school. Saw some good friends retire and move on. Gonna miss them! Had a great ceremony for them and it was a good day...

Bad news...
My trusty companion of 12 years is at a critical point. Almost 1.5 years ago, they told us he had congestive heart failure and we would likely have been 6 weeks to 6 months....and here we are. He is a big dog who has exceeded his life expectancy and his back legs are just about to quit. We are trying one more thing at the dr.'s recommendation, and then comes a tough decision. My love, his trust in us, and friendship for my dog is about to be tested. I'm going to have to make a decision....and it's going to result in him leaving. I know...it's what's best for him....

but it sure hurts us....

Prayers and thoughts appreciated....

I'm so sorry, ballcoach.

I'm praying the Dr.'s recommendation helps. I'm sending you guys my thoughts, prayers, strength, and love.

((Hugs))

So many cute things!! Can't wait.

And I just received an order I had placed on Etsy from a shop that makes perfume oils, soaps, and Chapstick. I bought some pumpkin and pumpkin cheesecake items. And I also bought 2 other scented oils from a different shop, one is Haunted Hayride & the other is Comfort & Joy...a Christmas scent. Love them!

Can the holidays just get here already?!

Hope you all are having a great night!
The items that you received sound wonderful!
