Thank you, MerryCarey!!

Glad that the modem reset fixed the issue! I love Alfred Hitchcock & The Twilight Zone, enjoy the episodes!!

I think I want some of whatever you're taking! I haven't felt "in the groove" since I don't know when!

Solice, I hope your son gets well soon!

Undrtakr, I love the Santa! They are hard to find these days.

Very curious about the rumor from Carl and Crown! =)

I don't know what other big news I missed but I have to go. I will try to get back on here later!

Have a Merry Day!
The fall trips you took, were they by train?

I got a call last night from the mother of the little girl I was going to start watching today. Her grandmother has volunteered to put her on the bus on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, so they will not be needing me. The mother promised me that if anything changes I will be the first one she calls. To be honest with you, I am almost relieved because I haven't been feeling well lately. Some days I barely have the energy to get through the day and take care of my own family.
I will be heading out soon, the dogs have a groomer appointment in a little while. I have a few errands to run while Molly and Maggie are at the groomer, including a trip to the supermarket. Then back home for chores. I also need to start a big pot of chicken soup for dinner.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!
Thinking of you all! Hope you guys get to feeling well again soon.
((Hugs))

Good luck with everything today, hope you can rest some too.

Extra hugs to Molly & Maggie, hope their appointment goes well.

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be another beautiful day here with a high in mid 70's. Pretty excited here today. My brother from another mother is going to become a dad!!! My sister from another mother is starting a new job that I know she is going to be great at and NCIS is back tonight!!!! I'm going to try and contain my excitement though and do some work around the apartment and maybe make a couple of apple pies. I'm also going to work on some preliminary song lists for the shows I volunteered to do on Kringle radio. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S.- You guys have been busy overnight and this morning!!!

Good luck, you are in my thoughts!!!!!

Glad you are feeling better. The B12 shots always help mom to feel better.

When my first was born, I remember everything going on in the room, and I must have gotten really pale and nearly passed out and the nurses and Dr were paying attention to me instead of my wife having the baby. The nerves and emotions were unreal.

It was an amazing thing to witness, and we joke about that now.
