Pretty good deal! They also have a W.C. Fields set but I passed it up. I am not a huge fan but might go back for it just so i can see Ms. Gloria in Never Give a Sucker an Even Break.
Heck of a deal, I would pay $12 for Duck Soup alone, such a great and funny movie.

Good evening,

Busy day here, LC had his kindergarten physical today and then we spent most of the day out, to Holyoke, MA to Barnes & Noble and Holyoke Mall. I finally went to my first Hobby Lobby!!!! That store is amazing, they did have some Christmas stuff out but my cellphone camera is craptacular, so no pictures. LC fell in love with the scarecrow nutcracker, and the paint your own nutcrackers. I work early tomorrow, had my schedule changed to work Thursday night for inventory, and day shift tomorrow, part of the reason was to have the night off for a possible game 7, but we all know how that turned out.


Good night all!!!

I am doing well, still trying to recover from our super busy week that just passed. I had hoped things would slow down for me after my daughters prom and graduation but there is never a dull moment in this house. Always something to do or somewhere to be. But its all good. I just wish I had more time to post here. I feel like everytime I start to type something I have to stop to do something, lol. But I read the countdown when ever I can so I know whats going on with all of you. I read from my phone when I'm walking the dogs or waiting in my car for my daughter to get out of work or even on line in the supermarket!
Anyway, typical day here. Daily chores and errands. My youngest started drivers ed yesterday and that will be everyday for about a month. I'm hoping she does well with the instructor because I am still a nervous wreck when I drive with her.
Nothing else is really new with me. I am still exhausted all of the time, I assume its from lack of sleep. I know I mentioned that I went for my physical and blood work and everything was good. I am scheduled for an echocardiogram this Wednesday morning so hopefully that will go well too.
I hope everyone is doing great and has a wonderful day!!!
Hi HMG, I'm so glad to hear your physical and bloodwork were all ok. Best of Luck this morning with the echocardiogram, I'll be thinking about you xxx

I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Did you manage to get your hair cut? Hope you like the result. I've been thinking the same too, going to get mine cut on saturday.

Okay, I need to stop dreaming about it as I am getting my hopes up.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
I'm keeping everything crossed for you. It sounds like you are quite passionate about the role and that alone tells me they will be lucky to have you .
