It was such a good deal, and it was in such good shape!

Don't look at me that way, I'm not an addict! I can stop buying Camaros any time I want!



I hope y'all have a great day!



Congratulations on the new Camaro!!!!

Good morning,

Well, it's official, both my boys are in elementary school. I watched them both get on the bus, and LC was smiling, and having fun, I was worried he was going to freeze up and fight going. I got some pictures of them before the bus came and them on the bus. I miss them both but I knew this was coming, my boys are growing up. But...
FREEDOM from daycare bills!!!! Wooohoooo!!!!!

I have to head to work in a couple hours, not really what I want to do, but I have no choice.

Enjoy the Pines today!!!

It's tough to let go. I had to take off work when both on mine started school, I was so upset. LOL

I FINALLY finished my video project for church. It's a video to celebrate Grandparents Day. Wayne and I spent the last 2 Sundays interviewing children about their grandparents then I put that together with a brief history of that day. I ran into so many issues with my video maker. I spent my entire Friday working on it and never got it working. My son was helping me with it as well. On Saturday after a few hours we got it working. Took me most of the day yesterday to edit, tweak the audio on it, and add music. Phew! All that work and it's a 5 minute video! I know those who are familiar with video making know the time it takes to even make a video that short.
If you can, post a link to the video ... I know you do such good work! And yes, it's possible to spend hours and hours on a 5-minute video. Takes lots and lots of patience.

It's a puppy day at the office! One of my co-workers volunteers with a dog rescue, and a few times a year he brings in a few of the puppies he's fostering. So people are on the floor cooing over the three puppies who are visiting today! (Note: That's not how we'll spend the day ... work still goes on as usual!)

Good morning everyone!

Another Wednesday, another gathering at the 'Pines. The "burrr" month festivities have begun. That camel, Carl, sure is clever. To be honest, it's great to see everything pick up at this time of year. We're on the bottom end of the calendar and going straight for our favourite season!

Last night was a good time. Kim and I hung out with my brother and his wife. We played some Xbox Kinect and then visited a local watering hole. It was pretty empty - but after all it was a Tuesday night in a fairly lifeless city. Still, we had a good night. Also, Kim and I accompanied my dad on his daily visit to my 99-year-old grandmother. It was great to see her!

As for today, I think we're just having a barbecue here at my mom's house. It should be delicious! Well, not a whole lot to talk about. Time for some job hunting. Have a great Wednesday, everyone! We're turning that corner toward the weekend!
