Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

I had a great birthday yesterday. My mom make spaghetti, substituting turkey for ground beef. You couldn't tell the difference, and I love her spaghetti sauce. She simmers it all day with fresh tomatoes, onions, etc. Yum, yum! Oh, and I got a very cool Star Trek t-shirt!

I just realized my driver's license expired yesterday. These days, they want you life history to get a replacement. Birth certificate, SS card, copies of utility bills (to verify your address), etc. That's seriously crazy. And to top it off, I had lost my birth certificate some where along the way. Usually, that's not a big deal, but I was born in Germany while my dad was stationed there. So, I had to apply to the State Dept. for a replacement Report of Consular Birth Abroad form. It took forever (and a big check), but I finally got it last week.

I'll be glad when things settle down!

I hope y'all have a great day!

We have an excessive heat advisory in effect for today and it is supposed to be very hot all week long. It's awful.
So my youngest went to a concert last night with 5 of her friends, I gave them all a ride there. It takes a while to get there but the concert was at an outdoor theater, which is on the water. It's very cool and if you get a night with good weather it is just beautiful, it's a concert under the stars. Its a nice ride during the day, very scenic. At night though, its a whole other story. There is a very long stretch of road that has no street lights and I find it to be unnerving in the dark. Especially since you pass an area where the bodies of over a dozen women have been found over the years, all believed to be victims of a serial killer who has never been found. Very creepy. Anyway, I fell asleep last night while I was waiting for my daughter to get home and I was awakened around midnight to her calling me, asking for a ride home. She said their ride fell through. They all said their parents weren't able to pick them up. Really? Unbelievable. I guess I was the only sucker that would get out of bed to get them, lol. It was late, my daugther said she didn't feel well, I just wanted to get there as soon as I could to get her. My husband worked his butt off yesterday and was sound asleep so I didn't want to wake him up to go with me. But I made it there and back. I didn't get much sleep. My other daughter has an early morning doctor appointment and my youngest has drivers ed. I am not running any errands today, they could wait. I'm hoping to squeeze a nap in this afternoon. I do need to call the vet again, Maggies cough was bad last night. I'm so confused, I don't know why the medicine isn't working. Maybe she could try something else. The doctor told me it might be tricky getting the meds right because she is so tiny.
I hope everyone has a great day!
That is ridiculous that the other parents wouldn't pick up the kids.

You're such a good Mom! That must've been scary driving that highway at night, I think I remember seeing a story or two about that on 48 Hours or Dateline.
Glad you all made it home safe & sound.
How is your daughter feeling today?

Keeping Maggie in my prayers!! Hugs to her from Harlowe & I.

Hope you can get a napi in this afternoon.

xx

The Brecon Beacons are used by all sectors in our military, from sas to territorial. This weekend was the turn of the Territorial Army, the national news are claiming that two soldiers died and one is in intensive care, but the local news on the street is that the mountain rescue brought six bodies down on saturday. We are all really shocked and the town is a somber place today. As a town which has proudly hosted the British army for many years, we are respect and support them. The bunting is hanging throughout the town ready to celebrate the birth of the new Royal, perhaps people shall see it more as a mark of respect for those who did not join us this monday morning.
Praying for your community, Kizzy.

Well, better take the kids to the park before it's unbearable out... hoping Sounds of the Seaons will switch to Christmas in July by the time I'm back!
Yes :/

It's going to be a nasty week.

Stay cool & hydrated!!!

Keeping my fingers crossed that Sounds Of The Seasons gets it together. I was so disappointed that it hadn't switched when I checked this morning!

The lower temps gave Chico a break and he seemed to breath a lot better yesterday. The high will only be 80 degrees today and rainy so that will help him too.

The kids will be over soon so I think it's a good day for Christmas in July! I think I will put on some Christmas shows and play some Christmas music.

I hope you all have a Merry Day!!!
((Hugs)) to Chico! Glad he had a good day yesterday.

Enjoy your CIJ festivities!!

Good morning, friends!!

It is going to be an oven out there all week, so going to crank up the AC & pretend it's cold outside

Looking forward to QVC's CIJ!!!! Especially excited after seeing Valerie's sneak peeks!!

Today, I have to run out to our bank & get my application for my real estate license notarized. Then, I have a few errands to run.

Stay cool, everybody!!

Have a beautiful day!!
