Good morning MMC! Rainy morning here in Ohio! Rains supposed to quit around noon or 2:00! Hope it does! Noon is good with me - that's when I get off work!

We are heading to the lake tonight. Tomorrow night we have a birthday party for our niece/nephew. Sunday for lunch we have a birthday party for our friends son. My hubby is his Godfather....and I'm hoping to get a lot of walks/bike riding in between there! Supposed to have temps in the 60's all weekend. Gracie will be excited to head to the lake again to see all her friends! Lol!

Hope you all have a fun/relaxing weekend planned! Have a great FRIDAY! I'm off to read posts!!!

It was a nice night. Except my neighbor wasn't feeling good & didn't walk b/c they are leaving today for the weekend. Hope she is better today! I did end up stopping at a friends house at mile 4 to help her with a puter question & we had a cocktail...Thirsty Thursday! Lol!

I hope so too! Sick of the high electric bills!
I agree!! Hope this is your last high bill Made! Although our electric bill is about to get high b/c of AC, but then the propane bill should be close to zilcho!

Are you sure you don't live in Ohio!? Lol

Six Flags was fun, we didn't stay too long, just had to activate our season passes and hit a few rides.

We also did some summer clothes shopping for the boys, and went to a Hallmark in that area. They were selling ornaments and decorations for 90% off, I bought 3 ornaments and a Charlie Brown decoration for just over $8!!!! I was thrilled, I probably would have had more luck if I didn't have such a bad headache at the time. I will post pictures soon. I also asked the women working if they had any Dream Books yet, and she was happy to get me one out of the back stockroom. Usually the old ladies who work there protect them like they are gold, but these women were younger and smiled when I asked for one. I am thrilled about my bounty from Hallmark.

We will visit my grandparents on Saturday instead. We just ran out of time today because JP had baseball practice tonight also.


BRUINS WIN!!!!!! WOOOOHHHHHHOOOOOOO!!!!! I love playoff OT hockey!!!!

Back to work tomorrow, and Saturday off.

Good night, my dear friends.
Sounds like a great day & an awesome ending to the night. Great find at Hallmark! I hope work goes fast for you today & enjoy your day off tomorrow!!

I will be working on daily chores this morning. I also need to finish a menu plan and grocery list for next week. I will probably go to the butcher this morning and do the rest of my food shopping over the weekend.
We picked up my daughters prom dress yesterday and we have a big problem. We were told they would be ordering her a size zero and they ended up getting her a size 4. The dress is huge on her. I'm not sure what we are going to do. I left the store in tears, the owner was beyond rude and abrasive. The dress will have to be reconstructed. The gown is heavily beaded and I'm afraid the alterations will have an impact on the pattern of the beading and the look of the dress. Not to mention the cost, it will be hundreds of dollars in alterations on top of what we paid for the dress. It was also a special order and final sale. I may head back there this afternoon with my husband but I know this women is not going to be accommodating. I feel bad for my daughter. She waited two months for this dress to come in, only to be disappointed. Wish us luck!
I hope everyone is well and has a Happy Friday!
I am so sorry that happened with her dress!!! They normally order 1 size larger than needed & then alter (or they did for the weddings I was in) but that is terrible!!! I hope they can fix it correctly - at their expense! Very frustrating!!!!!

They should be apologizing & in the least offering to credit you & take care of any alterations in full!! Oh my gosh, what terrible customer service! Do you have a receipt/order of the dress? Does it say size 0 on it? If so, I would say I understood my sale was final but since I didn't get what I ordered, ****!!!!

((Hugs))
Couldn't agree more!

Anyway my youngest is having a nap and chores completed so I now need to get some work done.

Have a good Friday and fabulous weekend everyone!!

Happy Friday, Sam!!

I love bird watching! I bet you two had fun

Have a great weekend with your family!!

Now I just have to figure out how to decorate them. I also need to clean up the mess I made while making them. I'm always amazed when I watch these cooking shows and the hosts never get anything on them. I guess I'm just a messy cook. Then this afternoon I have to get some laundry done and make out my grocery list before heading out to the carnival this evening. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are so sweet, buddy. That was very nice of you to take the extra time like that after you had already done a kind deed! You have the Biggest heart!

Have fun at the carnival tonight!!
