Morning! Happy Weekend everyone!
Wow it really cheered me up to think that it is only 200 days till the season begins! This year is really flying by.
Thanks for explaining about the pines I just wondered if it meant you all met up in the chat room at a certain time or something.
Yesterday I started looking at Christmas decorations on ebay! I am also looking for a snowglobe.....I'm very picky , I'll know it when I see it.....it's got to be the right one .

What are you all doing for the weekend. I'm having a quiet one. My little one was up crying from the wee hours in the morning for no reason. He fast asleep now but Im awake with my other son

I hope everyone has a great start to the weekend!
PS Misquitoes are so bad this year from all the rains we got in late winter and spring that they were even biting me in the middle of the afternoon!!! usually they are only bad in the darkness hours...Utah here I come...I am sure they are not as bad there!
Goodluck with your buyers today! Hope you get a chance for some rest to!

That is what life is all about, changes, changes and more changes. Some hard some easy all necessary if we all want to grow.
You can do this with all the grace of a proud mom excited to see her kids growing! (((HUGS)))
So true, all part of parenthood and you are handling it all so wonderful, your girls are lucky to have you.

XMAS65 HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Good morning!
It's going to be very nice today, partly sunny with temperatures in the lower 60's. I'm going to walk the dogs in a few minutes and then go to the supermarket to do my food shopping. I also have to go to the butcher since I didn't make it there yesterday. Not too much else going on for me today. The girls will be in and out, they all have to work. And my husband has a lot to do around the house. Thankfully we will all be able to meet up for dinner.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!
