I have to head back to work bright and early.

Have a good night all!
Oh, mmmmm eggnog! I made the best eggnog ever last Christmas
I found the recipe in here! Can't wait to make it again! =)
Hope you have a good night!

I'm about to go to uni so I just popped in to wish all a nice day!
Hehe... Know what you mean! =)
Have a great day!!! =)

Those time differences make me crazy too.

I would love to watch one of those QVS (is that right?) shows with you one day. After reading all your posts it seems like they are funny. Do they run everyday?

I'm feeling much better today. Guess the stomach flu figured out that I'm boring company and decided to go and bother someone else.
You can watch the Qvc online!
Glad you are feeling better!!! =)

Good Morning, Blossoming Friends!

Yes, in case you haven't heard, our annual photo thread is now up and running. Lots of great photos there already.
Check it out!

The count:
Days to the Season: 48
Days to Christmas Day: 90

Also, in case you also missed us yesterday, we passed yet another Milestone.
And just you wait until you see what our NEXT Milestone is.......
.....but we will put that off until tomorrow.
What with 'Pines Day, a new Milestone, the Blossoms thread opening and Ballcoach's new baby, we really had an exciting day yesterday.
Too soon to add to it just yet!

Our utterly fantastic weather continues with sunny days in the mid 70's and no rain. What a shock cold weather will be in the not too distant future!
Currently, we record 61 degrees here in the capital city.

Have a Thrilling Thursday, Everyone.
Weekend Eve again tomorrow, as impossibly soon as that may seem!

Good Thursday morning everyone! it's a cloudy rainy windy 47F so it's more like a late Fall early winter day feeling to me. We woke up at 3am to Jordan crying every time he swallows something he makes a bad face and then starts crying so he has a sore throat and he keeps holding his ear so the wife is going to take him to urgent care right now and her friend is coming over to stay with James. I have to get ready for work I just hope that Jordan is going to feel better soon. It breaks my heart when he looks at me when he holds his throat like I can take away the pain...I wish I could!! Welll I have to get ready for work. Have a great early Autumn day everyone!

Very nice words coach and from the heart. only a father could express them words
Hope all good and hope your wifes good after 15 hours am sure she is tired.
The best of luck to both of you with your new baby. and may she make you,s as proud of her as she is gonna be of you 2 ~}}

oh that sucks, hope it is all worked out now.
I had no problems, handed it to my daughter and she did it all, did not ask if she had any problems with it.
