It's really cute; when Adrian & I walk Har together, Adrian will make a snowball and roll it down the street (like we do with her balls at home) and she'll chase after it & pounce on it Such a silly girl.

We've been using Firefox more lately. Granted, we still have IE 8. Having so much trouble with that.

I have it bandaged and am hoping the soreness will subside by the morning.

Jennifer I hope you aren't getting a cavity and I am praying for your Pap xo

Xmas how are you feeling ? I hope better xo

Made how are you feeling ? Sinuses any better ? I am praying for your little nieces and your mom too xo

It has now been three months Wish was started on subcu fluids every day and he seems to still be doing well. In fact he has even managed to gain back the weight he lost which is a very, very good thing.

Praying for the families of the two young people who passed away mentioned here in the Countdown. As a survivor of suicide I understand how lost the families must be feeling. I wish I could tell the families that even though they feel like things will never be okay again there is some degree of healing that takes place but it does take lots of time. For me it will be 21 years and yet it still seems like yesterday sometimes.

Take care dear Christmas Family, Hermione has saved a spot for me on the couch so it's snuggle time with her and Clancy as well !! (((((Hugs))))))) xo
Thinking of you & sending hugs! XOXO

LC has now got a cold, he stayed home with the Mrs. He may be home with me tomorrow, since tomorrow is my usual day off.

Good night everyone.
Thanks, Xmas! I appreciate it! I am so looking forward to that game tomorrow. My friend is a huge Bruins fan so we have a nice rivalry going on, too. It will be a good one!! The Pens have been putting up a ton of goals lately.

You have been in my prayers and will continue to be. I hope you keep feeling better. How did your Bruins do tonight? I will pray that LC feels better quickly. Sometimes I think colds are one of the worst because they are so draining. Hope all improves!

Thanks for the advice! I am going to give it overnight and tomorrow and if it's not better, I am going to see if they can squeeze me in this week. I really do hate the dentist. I am glad that you have a good dentist. I bet more people wouldn't be so intimidated to go if they had a good one!
