Its morning again, raining and humid. I hope the humidity leaves before tonight as I have a cake to decorate and we already took the AC out.

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

CONGRTAUALTIONS! this made my morning! I am so pleased and excited for you! It must be such a relief for you all. It is such a nice time of the year to start in retail, you get to be part of the holiday themes.

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!!!
To bad you missed the parade but atleast you got to have a quiet evening and hopefully catch up on your work.

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!
Have you tried a knee band? I hope it is only a minor thing and you won't have to go to the Doctor.

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!
How worrying. I hope it heals quickly. I'm sorry you have to have another procedure. You will be in my prayers and I hope it all goes well.

I thought I was going to be taking him straight to the vet at 7:30 am! I put him outside around 4 am & he fell asleep outside in the 20 min he was out there!! WTH?? I let him in & he did fall asleep for a bit. Then I heard him get up, but he laid back down & at 7am he was sleeping like a baby- he was still sleeping when I left for work! I get home from lunch...he had thrown up at least twice! Once on the bedroom carpet & once on the linoleum in the hallway! In the hallway he had walked through it multiple times, so it was spread all over! So I cleaned carpets & scrubbed floors at lunch. But HE looked like he was feeling much better! After work tonight he slept quite a bit & now he is up & at um! I just fed him a little bit & he gobbled it down, so hopefully it will stay down this time & he SLEEPS good tonight!! I did grab 1 can of an off brand of canned dog food by mistake & I gave that too him last night & today. Maybe that was a mistake. Also I gave him his flea/tick treatment a couple days ago & last month a day or 2 after his flea treatment he got sick. Maybe that has something to do with it too. I dunno, but I hope he gets better & not worse!!!
I hope Buster feels better soon. it must be very frustrating for you both.

Howdy folks!

It's finally here! A cool down, FINALLY! It's rainy and the high will be in the upper 70's possibly right at 80 degrees! I am one happy person! Sure, I would like it just a tad bit cooler but I will take this! The highs will be in the 80's up until Monday then get back up in the 90's again.

Maybe, just maybe, I will get more of my fall decorations out. I just have not been in the mood with all this heat we are dealing with.

My granddaughter has been asking every day to get the Christmas Tree out. I just might get a table top Christmas Tree out for her if she ask again. Why not? What's the harm? No harm at all! She wants Christmas, she will get Christmas. I do have some orange lights so we just might do a Halloween Tree.

Coach, hang in there. It won't be too much longer!!!

Morning! Is it really Friday again! Next week is the final week of September!!!!! October is like my Pre start to the season. I can't wait!

THANK YOU all for the prayers and support! It means alot to me We will hopefully know by the end of today where things stand with DH's new role. Praying for good news. DH got home safely in the car thank goodness. However instead of taking it to the mechanic he has decided that he is going to fix it himself (WHAT?)! Men!! So I guess that's our plans for the weekend.....

There are christmas and Halloween things in all the shops now. It is graudually building up more and more each time I pop in. I had to take a moment to digest it all this morning. I really can't believe we have gotten to this time of year!!!!!

Ok well have a fun friday everybody!
