Great news!

I found Friday! I'm sending it your way...

Oh my! Emotions are hitting our house hard tonight! One second my wife thinks she's Batman, then she's acting like the crazy lady in Fatal Attraction, then she's crying because I didn't hang up MY dress pants right (they should have been folder another way)....

Whew....I would stay and chat....but I think I'm going to hide in the closet...if you see her coming towards you....be very quiet.....

Man, I hope Little Bambina gets here soon....

Good morning, everyone!

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!



Well i hope u feel good real soon, your trick or treat sounds real fun, this year I joined this little thing at work called a boo and its basically like a secret but for Halloween theres a 20 dollar limit and you buy Halloween themed gifts to exchange I can`t hardly wait!

Good morning my favourite christmas gang!


How are you doing? It's friday the weekend is just a couple hours away!


By the way, I like the way you all say goodnight to eacht other. Remindes me of one of my favourite TV series "the Waltons". Such a nice habit!


Yesterday we heard shocking news! A cousin of my grandmother (on my fathers side) comited extended suicide with his wife this monday. They were around the age of my grandparents. There were no signs prior that something was wrong, both were attending a class reunion on saturday, they had been in church on sunday and seemed like always. Both were still very healthy and had a nice house (without debts). The cousin was a hunter therefore he had a gun (gun laws in my country are very strict). I only meet them on bigger family reunions and didn't know them very well but I'm still at loss for words and just shocked. Don't know why they would do something like that in their age.

There are a lot starbucks here (at least way more than three years ago), but not in my home town and not in my work town. The next couple starbucks branches are in the next two bigger cities.

They offered me a position, and I start next week! There is a lot of growth potential, and I know exactly where I'm headed

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!

xx
Wooow such good news! I'm soooooooo happy for you! I'm sure everything will work out fine! God is great!

Not the best day. I have some pinkness by where my incision was so the surgeon isn't sure if I have an infection that is starting, a rash, or an allergy to the antibiotic that I just finished. I have to pray that it goes away because the surgeon is slightly concerned.

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 to hear this. Although I think it's better the doctor found it now instead of later! I'm praying there is no infection and you will get good news soon. Try to stay positive!

My alarm is going off at 5:00 a.m. I swear they are all still in summer mode. And they make me feel so old. Well I have to go remind everyone that its a Thursday night.
I hope everyone enjoys their evening.
Goodnight and sweet dreams!
Hopefully everyone will quiet down soon. Sleep well!

Lol I know it is not funny for you but it sure sounds funny to me. I'm feeling sorry for you BUT I feel even more sorry for your wife. Must be ugly to be in such a emotional rollercoster.

One of my cats gets a steroid shot for allergies every once in a while, it always works well for her.
Holiday, are you sure there aren't any fleas on Buster? Maggie had a really restless night not too long ago where she couldn't sleep and was itching and biting. It ended up being that we were having a problem with Frontline. It wasn't working for them anymore. I was told that certain fleas have become resistant to one of the active ingredients in it. We switched medications a couple of months ago and there doesn't seem to be a problem anymore. Just wanted to throw that out there, continued prayers for Buster!

LOL, party pooper! Soon enough it will all move inside, so enjoy that most of thee noise is outside right now. Plus they are young women with tons of energy not like us up and coming geriatrics that need our rest.

Good Morning, Friendly Friday Folks.

Well, with 'Pines Day and the day after behind us, we now turn our attention to Weekend Eve.
.....And also to this:
Days to the Season: 54
Days to Christmas Day: 96

Five -- count 'em -- FIVE more days remain until we are three-quarters of the way back to Christmas.
(Put that in your stump of a pipe and smoke it!)


The nicely cool/low humidity situation is continuing as we draw nigh to the first day of Fall (this Sunday).
Today has commenced at 65 degrees here in the capital city, and a very light rain has just finished falling.


Well now, Friends. Enjoy your Weekend Eve, and have a Fabulous Friday while you're at it!
