    He's actually been pretty good about sleeping most of the night the last several months but for some reason he just didn't want to sleep last night. I think that I got up 10 times at least. I'm glad Loki sleeps at night for you.

    Good morning MMC! Happy, Happy Friday! We have a bright & sunny morning, though much cooler & breezy! It was 80º yesterday ~ 47 this morning! What a change!

    I'm so happy it's Friday though I'm not looking all too forward to the weekend. I am staying with mom from 3:30 this afternoon until Sunday around 1pm. Mom, Emma & I are going to my uncles funeral viewing at 4:00 this afternoon, then we are planning to grab a bite to eat & then we will run Emma back home to Amishville. Tomorrow morning is the funeral mass with a meal afterwards. Mom is not sure if she wants to go to the mass, but she wants to see all of her brothers & sisters. I told her we can play that by ear - if she wants to go to both, we'll go. If she's not feeling up to it tomorrow, we'll just go to the meal. Hopefully she's up for both, but that would be a long morning for her. Sunday our friend is playing/singing at the lake, so I'm hoping it's warm enough we can ride our bikes over to where his is playing. I'll be ready for some fresh air by then! :)

    I'm going to experiment with some mini pineapple upside down cakes this weekend while I'm at Moms - for the dessert table at my nieces wedding. Any guinea pigs?? ;)

    Everyone, have a Fantastic Friday!!!!

    Ouch! We have a big auto repair bill due next week too, I understand!! Gotta have tires though if we want to drive, don't we! ;)
    What type of place are you wanting to go? All inclusive? Any idea what area you are thinking of? We loved the cruises we were on. Also Jamaica, Riviera Maya, Cabo San Lucas. Hawaii was nice, minus all the travel time! I have never been, but I hear so many wonderful things about Destin, Florida. Can I come along? ;)
    Have a great day Martine!

    Hawaii is a dream vacation, but we only have about 5-6 days so with travel time, I doubt it's worth it. Same for a cruise. Jamaica is on our short list, where did you stay when you went? I'm thinking all-inclusive might be less of a hassle for my first time in the sun, but we're open to anything.

    His thing he loves to do is take his favorite toy and "drop it accidently" behind the desk and bark and cry that he didn't mean to knock it there and now can't get it. #RollinsDrama

    Sorry to hear about your Uncle! I know that's not a fun weekend at all!

    We stayed at Sandals Montego Bay. We loved it! There are several Sandals in Jamaica, as well as many other all inclusive now. My sister just stayed at Iberostar there - they loved it. Off the top of my head, there is also Secrets, Couples, Half Moon, & RIU. The Falls at Ocho Rios were fun - we did the falls both times we were there! :) Jamaica has the prettiest color ocean I have seen so far! When my sis was there a couple weeks ago I texted & asked her if that wasn't the prettiest ocean she has ever seen & she sent me this pic:

    On a side note, on one of our cruises we went to Grand Caymen. It was pretty there too. We have never stayed there but they have beautiful white sand beaches!

    TGIF, Christmas friends!

    Mrs. Hilda decided to forgo the hotdogs last night, opting instead for Bernie Burgers. My father-in-law, Bernie, owns and operates the general store in Bellville, aptly named Bernie's. He sells convenience store stuff, general sundries, produce and meats. He make an awesome pizza, too, but his greatest claim to fame is the much-lauded Bernie Burger! It's a half-pound, hand-formed burger made from freshly ground chuck, and cooked on the pizza cooker with Bernie's special blend of herbs & spices. LOL It really is a great burger, and people order them all the time. I'm glad that what Mrs. Hilda wanted for her birthday.

    We're taking Elizabeth to get her driver's license this afternoon :eek:, then Nancy and Elizabeth are going to a play with Mrs. Hilda and Nancy's sister, while I'm going to hear Jacob's guitar recital at the University.

    Lunch today with mom & Jim.

    I hope y'all have a great day! :D

    Merry Friday All! It is a dreary/chilly day out there. We don't have too much planned for the weekend. My youngest has her opening day of softball tomorrow at 12 and a game at 1. Otherwise should be a quiet weekend. Hope you all have a great Friday and weekend!
