It is good to be here. I have appointments for blood tests and other stuff to find out why I have headaches and to keep track of calcium (it was a tad high) and to do some other things! I found out I have to be extra careful regarding my bones, especially jaw bones!!! The zometa can affect that!

Yes it is very exciting. Our Christmas Tree will be in front of our balcony windows, eventhough we have a artificial christmas tree, we won't put it on until two or one week before christmas.



Sending "good health"-wishes to you! Get well soon!



Sooo cute!



I'm like you. Usually I already shop the first gifts in October. Right know I have a pretty good idea for my sister but nothing for my parents. I hope I'll soon find some good gifts.

She is being a Sweet Pea again today!!!
Oh my gosh, that is just so precious!! I wish I could watch her 💗

Please give Palmer hugs for Harlowe & I!!
We are sending some to you too, friend!!

That thing was $3000! I guess it is a good thing we are rich, LOL!!! (Y'all know I am kidding, right?)
Congrats on getting the building permit!! Praise The Lord!!

It's ridiculous the hoops they make you jump through.

Glad you are back!! You've been missed!!

Christmas Countdown - 2013

Good evening, friends~

It was a busy day at work. We have so many trucks coming weekly, especially with the holidays coming (Holidays are coming! Holidays are coming!!)



(I have that jingle in my head)
Hope it's in yours now too!! =]

Oh my word! The Christmas decorations are starting to be put out & they are AMAZING 🎄

I'm gonna be broke!

Harlowe & I are tired, so we are going to veg out on the couch.

Cool down coming overnight. Yay!

Have a great night, all.

Btw, here is my peanut from the other day- so sweet!!
