It's nice to see - especially for the businesses around the lake! We were able to put 35 miles on our bicycles! FUN! Your movie night sounds great! Fun for all!!
Sounds like a fun time! We are going to the lake the weekend of Sept. 13th and we'll be camping there. I can't wait. The kids love it there, so it will be a great weekend!

As for my plans tonight - I need to go back to the lake after work & do some cleaning! And I have no doubt there are more tomatoes waiting for me in the garden....and I have some cleaning to do at home too! Never ending!
It does feel like it never gets done! It's my life story! I guess that's what it's like to be a homeowner/parent though.

Next up...LABOR DAY WEEKEND! Hard to believe!!!! Especially with the high temps we are supposed to have this week - how can it be labor day weekend?!!

HAPPY 99th BIRTHDAY to Brents Grandma! How awesome!!!

Make it a great day!!!

I've got everything done besides scrubbing the carpet. I've kind of lost my motivation now though.

Good afternoon, MMC!

Brent, congratulations on the win!

Christmasstar, good luck with getting the job at the coffee house. When are you coming to Frankenmuth? We should meet up there!

Ryan, thank you for the update on track. Enjoy your day off!

Made, I hope you get your motivation back!

Holiday, I'm glad you had a great time at the lake.

Sugar, have a good night at work tonight! I don't know how you manage all you do with two little ones, too. Your movie night sounded like a lot of fun!

Busy day ahead of me. Good news, though, we got a bit of rain a little while ago and there are storms in the forecast. Yay! Take care, everyone, and have a most MERRY day!!!

Thanks, Meckea! Some how, I manage to get it all. I have a wonderful husband though that does help. I can't seem to find any motivation to want to do anything today though, so I will do it tomorrow after sleeping.

Hope you're having a wonderful day!
