I don't think we're very far from each other. If you're in the DFW area, we're only about three hours away. Can you imagine living even farther south, in Houston or around that area? I bet it's even worse!
I'd like to donate some humidity...free shipping if you call with the next 90 seconds!

Good morning!
It is going to be cloudy out today with a chance of showers and we will have a high of 70 degrees. I just walked the dogs and its chilly this morning.
I have a few errands to run including a trip to the butcher. I need to make a menu plan for next week and grocery list before I head out. Not sure what else is going on today. I'm sure other things will come up, they always do!
I hope everyone has a great day!!!

If you can guarantee sunshine, I'll take three days' worth, thank you!
I promise you will get sunshine! It's rare you see cloudy days in the summertime here or rain.

Happy Birthday to our flag!

And a Happy Birthday to your husband. On another note: I really admire the work ethics you have taught your girls. It is rare nowadays to see this.

I was busy again today, I had to drive around and get immunization records and transcripts for my daughters college applications. And it is also my husbands birthday today. I had some last minute shopping to do. We had a nice dinner and cake at home tonight but we plan on going out to a restaurant over the weekend to celebrate. My oldest had to work this evening and I really didn't want to go out without her. The girls part time jobs make it tough for us to all be together. Seems like there is always at least one of them working. My youngest is the only one that doesn't have a job at the moment. It has been nice for her and for me. A lot less driving for me. But she has an interview next week so she may be back to work soon.
I hope everyone had a great day!!!

But I can tell you we are not in a rush and we may not even go through with it but all I can here is my dad's voice telling me I am loosing money if I rent/vs buy.lol Well I better go for now just wanted to wish everyone a great Friday morning! talk to everyone later in the day!
Good luck on house hunting and keep us posted!!!

Yep, DFW area and of course Houston is a lot worse because they are close to the coast with all the humidity.
