Thanks for thinking of me

Good afternoon, friends!!

Happy Pines Day!!

Sorry I didn't have time to quote more posts, but I am thinking of you all. Always am!

There is a lot that Adrian and I are trying to accomplish before he leaves on his next business trip, so today has been quite crazy!

We've been without Internet and phones, had modem issues, I haven't been feeling well, and Adrian has been extra busy at work but couldn't get things done because of the computer issues. Basically, it's just been one of those tough weeks so far. We'll survive, we always do!

I have a meeting with a broker tomorrow, so trying to prepare for that as well.

Hope all is well with you guys. Sending lots of hugs!!

xx

Seems good so far, just trying to send out test text messages and posting here and what not. Earlier today, I couldn't receive calls, make the calls, text, or receive texts.

That is now working! Yay!!

...when I have time, I'm going to need to fix all my settings, and my apps, notifications, etc.

It's really not as easy as they make it sound!

Verizon sends you to Apple, Apple sends you back to Verizon, etc. What is annoying is that they don't give you any references, instructions, they just expect you to figure things out.

I truly learned a lot from the Apple guy!

Thanks for asking.

I like "Big Jake" also. I remember Wayne says "not hardly" throughout the movie. You will remember in "The Searchers", Wayne keeps saying 'that'll be the day". I read that after seeing "The Searchers", Buddy Holly wrote the song "That'll be the day".

I am praying you start feeling better.

I am praying Adrian has a good, safe trip and that y'all get everything you need worked out before he goes (and praying for you as I know its tough when he's away).

I am praying for your meeting with the broker tomorrow. You'll do great!

Wow, you require a lot of prayer today and these coming days! But that's alright...what we're here for.

I hope you get feeling better!

Man, I can't wait!

Amie and I were talking about how each year that passes is one less Halloween we have with little ones. There will come a time (all too soon, I bet) where they won't be interested in trick-or-treating with their mom and dad. So, we're going to enjoy every year we have and when the day comes, we'll make new traditions.

Thanks for posting the update!

That's an interesting fact about Buddy Holly. I need to rewatch "The Searchers" as it's been probably ten years since I've seen it.

I like how in "Big Jake" everyone keeps saying to him, "I thought you were dead."
