Bronchitis has been going around here in northern California beginning as early as spring. This has really been a tough strain of if. Take care. In addition to feeling horrible and having a sore throat, you become so worn down physically. Healing thoughts going out to you. Hopefully, Kandice will not get it!

Thank you. Wishing you to have a great weekend as well!



Hope your appointment went well and doctors didn't find anything suspicious. :]



Have a great weekend you too!



We tried our best! The campus wasn't that busy today as it usually is so we couldn't get more money donated than we did but we think that this this coffee morning was still successful. :]



I'm happy that my university has been hosting 'Coffee morning' for three years now and I'm very glad to be a part of it. My younger cousin, with whom we have always been very close, was affected by cancer. Thanks God she is cured now but I know how knowing that someone you love and really care about is seriously ill breaks your heart and you even can loose him/her, so I feel an urgency to help hosting this kind of event. As the treatment of cancer is usually quite expensive, raising money is the least we can do to help those patients.

I'm sure she really appreciates your support & love <3

Thank you for keeping your fingers crossed. It seems that it really helped us. :] I hope your Friday went well too!

***

It's Friday! Hope everyone had a good last day at work and now are ready for the weekend! ^^ Although it's only nearly 8 p.m. here, I'm about to go to bed because two pieces of cake I ate today seem to be too much for me (I don't normally eat food like this so obviously my stomach doesn't like it anymore ^^), and my feet are soar because my shoes, which I had worn hundreds of times before, 'decided' not to fit my feet today. :/ I'm sure I will be okey tomorrow, and I can't wait to get back to my common eating regime.

Best wishes!

Have a great weekend!!

It is SUCH a gorgeous day! I ended up having to work later (go figure!) Boss went out to eat with a salesman! When I got home I rode my bike to Mom/Dads to drop something off. I chatted with Dad (who was sitting outside) for awhile & now I am home. Think I will finish packing up & head to the lake. You all have a great weekend!!!
Have fun at the lake, girlie!!

Snowflake & Made, thanks for the replies about my Tapatalk question. I noticed I'm supposed to update again, maybe I should do that.
Xmas, good luck with the inventory, I hope your day flies by.
VictoriaLT, I hope you have a great day and do well with the donations. My fingers are crossed for you.
Shellie12, I will definitely give Molly her pills with food, thanks for the advice!
Cetacea, great job on winning the game last night, that is awesome.
Gabulldawg, I hope Jordan is doing well, enjoy your visit with your SIL & BIL!!
Festive Spirit, I can't believe it's the last weekend in September, the month went by so fast for me. I hope you have a great weekend!
Brent, good luck this weekend, have a safe trip.
Jennifer, I'm glad your appointment went well, good luck with the biopsy results.
Brad, have fun at Six Flags!

Thank you all for sending get well wishes for Molly. She is having a good day today, I hope the medicine will help her. I can't bear to see her in pain.
I had a dentist appointment this morning. When I went for a cleaning and X-rays recently they told me I had a cavity. I would have never known, nothing was bothering me. Anyway I'm glad that's taken care of.
And today was the first day my daughter got to drive her new car in to school. It is so strange to me now that the three of them are all driving. This was the first morning in many, many years that I didn't have to bring or pick up anyone from school. It's a nice break but also makes me sad at the same time. The years have flown by.
Not too much going on this afternoon. I may take a ride to Target for a few things. Then back home to cook dinner, today is taco night.
I hope everyone is well and having a happy Friday!!!
Glad Molly is doing well today, HmG. Praying the medicine helps her out!

I would have went for something a little stronger until I read that article about the 2 guys here on facebook last night. Now I think I better stick to the wine.

Good afternoon, friends~

I had a very productive day today!!

First, I had a few appointments. One was with my chiropractor who is amazing! She has really helped me a lot, and is a big animal lover too. She told me I could bring Harlowe anytime if she isn't feeling well, and she would adjust her too. For free...nice lady.

Then, I had to go to Menard's for some batteries, nails, and light bulbs. I found lots of Christmas things there, just starting to be stocked. Awesome!!

After that, I came home & started going through our storage under the stairs. Adrian couldn't find his carving tools, and with it being prime pumpkin carving season, I had to save the day! I finally found them packed in Christmas things (?)!! Must've been by Adrian... So, he's happy, and I had fun looking at all of our Christmas decorations!! Some of them have never been used, so can't wait to put them out this year!! Adrian hit clearance the past two years, and found some awesome things.

Going to start dinner soon. Date night tonight =]

Hope you're all having a great weekend so far!!

xx
