My mom's big doctor appointment is today. We are going to see if she has to change medications or not. Fingers crossed she doesn't have to!

It is pretty crummy out right now. It was raining this morning and now it is supposed to switch over to snow. I am hoping it doesn't get too bad because the appointment is this afternoon. The meteorologists around here are just really bad lately. On Saturday they said there was no snow in sight and we ended up with 3 inches in the afternoon lol!

Not much going on around here today other than that.

I will catch up after the appointment!
Much thanks, Jennifer! All the best to your mom as well!

Thanks, Seawaters! I would have been great, but glad my grandmother is OK. We'll see what happens for me!

I wish I could work with you there !!!! xo

I just got a winter weather advisory alert on my phone for Thursday night through Friday night. 6-8 inches of snow with sleet and freezing rain. Yikes. Of course, I have a day full of appointments on Friday!! :/
