On top of that, my surgeon looked at a mole on my arm and told me that I am going to need it removed. Precancerous. It's a little scary considering I am only 22!

At least tomorrow is a new day...and Friday at that!

I'm sorry today hasn't been the best of days for you, jennifer. I will keep you in my prayers! {{{HUGS}}}

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!

hmmm, that last one was a bunch of weird gibberish!
All I wanted to say was congratulations, well done!
Thank you, CS!! 💜

Hey HmG!! I had the same issues logging on this morning. Good luck with your errands today, enjoy the gorgeous weather!!

Thank you very much! It was a nice night! And thanks for the wishes for Cory. He is such a good guy!

The whole site was down this morning.


Can you make me a menu out for next week too? I looked through our grocery ads and nothing really popped out to me. So I don't know what we will be having.
Thanks to you too! I too hope Cory can heal 100% so he can start again! He had such a great career going - according to his stats he was their #1 starting pitcher at the time of his injury! BUT if nothing else - he did sign a $12,000,000.00 contract before his injury!! Geesh! But he wants this so bad - hoping he can do it!

At least all the ingredients are listed - shouldn't be too hard to duplicate!
Well thanks - I didn't see that earlier!!! I will check it out! Sounds so yummy!

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!!!
We had some rain tonight too. They are saying more coming overnight! Hope you sleep better tonight!

So all you medical specialists, what do you think is wrong with it? Should I go to the doc or just wait it out? You have to know I do not like my doc, but when you have a doc you are not allowed to change because we have such a shortage right now. His diagnoses for most everything wrong with me is , loose weight. Plus, I hate going to the doc, he just might tell me something is actually wrong, and I really do not want to hear that after finally getting a second job!
Nice surprise that you got to help train your friend. I hope you knee is better tomorrow. Funny you say that b/c last night all the sudden my knee started hurting. It didn't hurt to walk, but when I bent it, it hurt like crazy. Today it's fine! Weird!

I hope your incision does not get infected & the pinkness goes away quick!! Hopefully the mole is just a fluke & you can have it removed & be done with it! Wishing you a better day tomorrow!

We'll see what he comes up with next week =]

Thinking of you, CS. Praying it feels better soon. Is there inflammation? Maybe ice would help and ease the pain. Also you could start with ibuprofen every 4-6 hours.
Good luck!!
