Last night we went to my sisters - my BIL made a bunch of chicken halves on his cooker - we had all placed an order for how many we wanted to take home to freeze for a quick easy meal! They were delish! They look dark in the picture, but they really weren't!



Poof - there went the weekend! Not much going on this week that I know of! Dad has a doc appt with a back surgeon Thursday. Makes me kind of nervous. He has a flattened vertebrae in his lower back - they say it's not an operable type thing, but they want an opinion from a surgeon! I hope there is something they can do for him - for the pain! And I sure hope they don't tell him that his days of mowing lawn (riding mower) are over! He could mow 365 days a year & he would be a happy man! So a little prayer for my papa would be appreciated!

Have a great Monday!
That sounds magical!

Thank you, though! Just haven't been sleeping well, Jude has been coughing up a storm and I am worried it might be coming my way... oh well, is that an excuse to be lazy??
You can recover from general laziness! I do it all the time...it's cured by taking long naps....daily.

I hope you had a better day today, you are in my thoughts.

Dogs are sleeping, Lil' Bambina is sleeping, and Dr. Wifey is sleeping...

so I just wanted to catch a few minutes here...

What's yall's thoughts about the 25 Days schedule? I haven't got to look at in depth, but it looks pretty good to me. I'm going to look at it for a few more minutes before I doze off....

Speaking of which....when the baby sleeps, we all should sleep....so I'm off...

Made, Go Colts!
