Summer is over.

But as I think about it....if we don't start the school year....we won't ever get to have the Little Bambina, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break, NFL and College Football, the Super Bowl....

Ok, Ok.....I guess we can go back.
Best wishes and best of luck on the new school year!

School won't start around here for another couple weeks. I'm not looking forward to the school traffic coming back and making the commute longer.

Spent all last weekend shopping for school stuff. NC had a tax free weekend on school supplies and clothes, so we went Fri,Sat and Sun. But we got everything.

Well gonna go try and catch up. Have a grand day
Glad you were able to figure out what's been causing here so much trouble. I'll continue to think of her.

She wasn't driving, one of her guy friends was. It wasn't her friends fault, the other car went through a stop sign and t-boned his car. Thankfully no one was hurt. I drove down to where it happened to make sure everyone was alright and to take my daughter home. I'm telling you, these teenage years are wearing me out. It's so stressful. I'm at the point where I don't even say hello when they call me, the first words out of my mouth are "Are you alright?"
Anyway, I have to go food shopping today. I'm happy I made it to my butcher yesterday, so that is off my list. I also need to go to the bank and the pet store. Other than that it will be a typical day, I have laundry and some other chores to do.
It is going to be sunny today with a high of 82 degrees. I wish it were a bit cooler but the humidity is gone, so I shouldn't complain.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!
So glad to hear everyone was okay. I'm sure you were very shaken up.

Good afternoon! I just wanted to drop in & say hello. I'll be heading to lunch soon! We had a great weekend - weather was just gorgeous! I'm tired today!!! We did do the 25 mile bike ride Saturday morning. It was so nice!! No wind! We went through the countrysie & up along the lake. Beautiful!

My hubby is on vacation this week - he is golfing this morning. NO FAIR!

Hope you are all having a great day!!! Hope to catch up this afternoon...

Good Monday afternoon, my Christmas friends!

I usually make my main post earlier in the day, but after having been out of the office for a week, I was slammed with emails and post-it notes that demanded immediate attention. I'm finally caught up.

We had a great vacation! We got home yesterday afternoon about 6pm. It was 92° and 100% humidity. Yikes, it never got over 78° in Maggie Valley last week! I wanted to give Mgramsey a call to meet for a cup of coffee while I was in the neighborhood, but my family kept me on the run all week.

Still, it was good to see Bellville. A week is about as much time away from home as I want at one time. And it's good to have full-time access to MMC, too!

I hope y'all have a great day!
