Congratulations on the new job!!

I'll have to tell Adi that @ the chips!! We were able to move back to Wisconsin because Adrian is marketing the food products whose proceeds benefit his charity. They are produced in various Midwest states.

Larry The Cable Guy is a comedian, and also has a show on the History Channel called Only In America. He also did the voice for Tow Mater in Disney Pixar's movie Cars.

That is good to know - next time I buy chips I'll know what kind to get.

It's going to be so strange not having to chauffeur any kids around. My husband has been haggling with the car dealer all week and I believe they are just about ready to make a deal.
I also had some other news to share. A friend of mine has been doing babysitting out of her home to make some extra money. She has been doing it for years and has to turn people away because she can only watch so many. Anyway, she called me last night and asked if I might be interested in watching a six year old special needs girl. It would only be for a couple of hours in the morning until the school bus picks her up, twice a week. The family lives very close to me, they are right around the corner. I actually met with them earlier, they are a beautiful family. The little girl has cerebral palsy. She can't communicate well but she walks and eats all by herself. And she is incredibly sweet. I told them I will do it, I am so excited! Wish me luck, I really hope it works out. I start next Tuesday.
I hope everyone is well and had a wonderful day.
Goodnight!
God bless you, HmG! I'm sure you will do great in your new job - sounds perfect!

I am nervous about him driving it if is smoking!!!!!!!

Then there was an issue with my account and while on the phone trying to sort it I couldn't find my bank card. I thought for sure I lost it or it was stolen. All this with a crying baby and the school run to do. After many tears and a living room that now looks like it was hit by a mini tornado (me) I thankfully found it!

Anyway things are and will get better as the day goes by. I guess we will just have to accept it if things don't work out with DH's new role, another opportunity will arise I am sure. We'll know later today.

Now , I just hope he makes it home without the car setting the streets alight with fire like Ghostrider!!!!!!!!!!!

Almost weekend again! Have yourselves a merry day!
I'm sorry you are having a rough day, Festive! Praying all will work out for your DH job and car-wise!!! {{{HUGS}}}

Today I have my follow-up appointment with my surgeon. I think I am healing well and I feel good except I have some numbness that I discovered this morning. I read that it can happen after surgery and will fade in weeks/months if the damage is temporary. I couldn't even imagine having permanent nerve damage so I really hope that's not the case.

The official start of fall will be here before we know it! They just announced when we will be having trick or treat here, which is going to be on the 31st. I know you're probably thinking "well duh" but in my town they usually do it on a certain day of the week, which almost never ends up being Halloween. I am looking forward to going to the store and starting to buy candy to pass out to the kids. I always try to get a good variety - chocolate, gummies, other candy, chips - that way the kids can pick what they like the best. When I was little I used to think I hit the jackpot when I'd get a Little Hug drink.

I know I am slacking but I have to get out and buy some new Halloween decorations for the yard. I haven't had a chance yet. I am trying not to go too crazy on the Halloween decorations so I can save more money for Christmas decorations

I have some stuff to do for school and then I am going to get ready later this afternoon and head to my appointment. I hope you all have a wonderful day! Don't work too hard and drive safe!
Praying the numbness will be temporary! I hope you have a wonderful day, too, jennifer!

You're welcome! If you click on the seasoning in that post, it will take you to the website that has the seasoning. I actually just looked at the price on the site - over double what I paid for it a little over a year ago. Guess I will have to start making my own. At least all the ingredients are listed - shouldn't be too hard to duplicate!

I feel so relieved!! We were worried that we would have to move if I didn't find something soon. We'll still have to cut back on things, but this is a great start! And it feels wonderful to set goals again, and to be working toward them.

Thank you all for your thoughts & prayers, they have really meant a lot to me.

Harlowe continues to do well =] Thank God!! Feeling very blessed.

We are getting a lot of wonderful rain today, and we really need it. There was even a gorgeous rainbow.

Off to do some laundry, and walk Har.

Hope you're all having a beautiful day!

I'll have to pay my dues again a bit to get good hours, but I don't mind that. I'm just happy that I'll get to be creative again, and be around products I love.
I enjoyed working in retail, too! I worked for a small chain department store that has since closed, but it was great while it lasted!

Good afternoon, MMC!

It is getting very cloudy out - chance of thunderstorms through tomorrow. Today is the Homecoming parade - I thought it was tomorrow before the football game and had made plans to go then. Guess I am out of luck this year. It is probably a good thing - I did not sleep all that good so I can take things easy for the rest of the night. There is some work I need to get caught up on, as usual.

Be MERRY!!!
