The prices of the tickets still remain very high and I don't yet know my exam timetable which is very frustrating. :/ Anyway, my fingers are crossed and I hope to figure something out as soon as possible otherwise the airline will increase its fees even more.

Best wishes!


Hope you can get it figured out soon!!!! Goodnight!!!

They played "Night at the Museum", and it was very neat, but it was 47 by the time the movie was over. Brrrr!




Yesterday afternoon, we were in Statesboro all day with Elizabeth, for her Nutcracker practice. What happened to those days when you just plopped down on the couch and watched a movie?

I hope y'all have a great day!
that looks like fun! We have the downtown area behind city hall, known as market square close down in the summer several time for movie nights. Get lots of people come out for it. You bring your own chair, popcorn supplied.

It's also been VERY useful as I've been putting together my playlists for Kringle Radio. I can just scroll through and see what I have at my fingertips! And I'm looking forward to pairing a device with a Bluetooth speaker and hitting "shuffle" as we wrap gifts.

And the MP3s are only a fraction of our Christmas music ... we have LPs, cassettes, and CDs that haven't been digitized. Must dig deeper into those and get to know them again.
thats what my daughter is going to show me how to do, thanks.

We are really taking 1 day at a time and I'm not sure when I will be back on. I want to thank all of you for your prayers and thoughts for our family. You're the greatest.

I'll see if I can keep it here longer so it doesn't ruin your halloween too!!!
I am glad it's getting better! You need to stay off of it! I probably wouldn't stay off of my foot, though...so who am I to say?! Thanks! I had a good shopping trip with my mom. Santa now knows a few things I want for Christmas! LOL! You don't want more rain! I wish it would just poof somewhere.

Awww! I am sorry it was a miss. I am sure that you fixed up the scarecrow really nice! That's exciting that there were Christmas items out! The only two stores I have seen with Christmas items are Hallmark and Walmart so far.

I hope you don't get any rain! Where is it coming from all of the sudden?! You're lucky that you already had trick or treat!

I'm so sorry, Seawaters. I hate nausea. I hope that it passed quickly and that you are feeling much better. You're in my prayers!

Good evening!! I hope that you're making good progress on your essay! When will your exam schedule be released? It's crazy that it isn't yet. My exam schedule was released earlier in the month or late last month. I hope that you're able to find an inexpensive ticket so that you can make it home! Have a good night!
