Btw, do you plan to see The Conjuring?
Nancy refuses to see it on the big screen, so I have to wait for the DVD.

Thanks for the update <3

Continued thoughts & prayers for her-definitely a trooper!!

We're getting closer to opening night at the theater this weekend. Elizabeth is so tired from all the practice, I hope she gets a change to actually enjoy the play!

Not only is today Christmas in July, it's the first anniversary of my, ahem, myocardial infarction. Someone showed me the newspaper article from last year: "BELLVILLE MAYOR SUFFERS HEART ATTACK". I, however, prefer to believe that I survived a heart attack. It tried to take me out, but I defeated it...with a little help from my cardiologist, that is.

People still offer to do strenuous things for me, afraid I'll have more trouble. It's nice of them, but I don't intend to be afraid. If the doc says to be careful, then I will. But he says I'm good to go as long as I exercise and watch what I eat, so I've decided that the heart attack is something that happened to me in the past, like a broken arm, and I got over it.

[Forest Gump] And that's all I have to say about that.[/Forest Gump]

In other news, my grass has gotten out of control again! It rains every afternoon now, just before I get off work. LOL I might have to use some vacation time to cut the grass. That's crazy!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Merry Christmas in July to you, too, Bradmac! You most definitely are a survivor - thank God! I hope Elizabeth gets a chance to enjoy the play - how exciting for her!!

Thank you, Merry! Lucy's favorite spot is out at the pond. If her kittens aren't born out there, she will take them out there after they are month or two old, lose them, and spend a few days trying to find them. She does that every year! I would like to know what she it trying to teach them!!! She is getting very sneaky - she took them out there after I fed them and so it was several hours before I realized they were missing.

My wife does that sometimes, too! My problem is, if ordering off the kids menu, it would take several orders to fill me up.

I try to limit myself, but I'm not the smallest guy in the world. So when I eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I can eat several without even noticing. Especially days when I workout and I'm very hungry!

I am glad you are doing good and kicked that heart attack in the hind end!
And, I hope Elizabeth breaks a leg this weekend (not literally, but in show biz speak). Maybe I should say I hope she knocks it out of the park!

Good afternoon, everyone! How are you all? I am well. Just hanging around on and doing some relaxing.

What are you all up to? Not a whole lot going on here. DH is at work, so the kids were scheduled for school/daycare today, so I am just getting some stuff done around the house today and spending some time with you guys.

What are you're plans for tonight? I don't think we have anything planned. We had a fun day yesterday, but I go back to work tonight, so we will probably just stick around the house tonight.

Well, I am off to read some of the Countdown and get my cards out for the e-card exchange! Talk to you all later on. God Bless and enjoy the rest of your day. Keep smiling!
