Hey everybody! Hope yall are doing great!

Been a busy few days here. Wifey and I are watching the kickoff of ABCFamily's Countdown to the 25 Days of Christmas by watching Up. It's kinda neat. There is something coming on after this, but I'm not sure what. I'm gonna let the suspense keep me interested.

School is winding down. The next two days are going to fly by and then we are off for a week (I have to work Monday). I can't wait for some time off.

They haven't shown any commercials yet, but I can't wait to see the previews for 25 days....

Well, I'm gonna go...I'm going to check out the rest of the boards and watch TV. See yall later!

Made, I am thinking of you and praying for your Mom. Sending hugs your way.

Goodnight and sweet dreams.

Hello all. Made, to cheer you up Carl has a surprise. He knows you are a fan so he has gotten a hold of a nascar and is waiting outside to give you a spin. I'd be careful getting in the car with that crazy camel! Go at your own risk!

She wouldn't let them call an ambulance, so I rushed up to her work and took her to the ER. After another round of tests, they decided that it was another TIA and they decided it was safe to send her home. I didn't agree with the last part since she still couldn't walk on her own and was having a hard time swallowing. They said she would be fine though and sent her home. Now that we are home, she does seem to be doing a little better though. So hopefully she is back to normal by tomorrow morning.

Sorry to hear that. but i really do think they should have kept her in just in case overnight. hoping shes a lot better in the morning, but still i feel shes should be getting better attention from the medical side. she so lucky to have you to look out for her . ( hugs )

I am stuffed from a triple steak stack on flat bread at Taco Bell. Talk about delicious!!! Now I am sleepy! What a surprise!

Believe it or not, snow is predicted for Chico next week!!! So, maybe we will get snow, too! Of course, that would interfere with building plans. Boo hoo! I want snow, but I also want the new addition completed.

I am going to relax for a while and then read in bed. TTYT
