They keep telling us to wait to have her tonsils taken out but I think it's time. And if she's going to do it then the summer would be a good time since school is out. And my middle one has an appointment for a routine cleaning at the dentist later this morning. I also have to go to the mall with my youngest later this afternoon. I'm hoping to wrap up Fathers Day shopping while I'm there. It's going to be one of those crazy busy days!
I'll try and catch up here later, I hope everyone has a great day!

Wow!!!! You are going to be busy today!!!

Praying your daughter feels better soon and that everything else goes smoothly.

I have a cake to put together for this as well.

Listening to a lawn being mowed, the birds singing and enjoying the cool breeze coming through the window beside my desk.
And I should get up and get to work, so talk to you all later!

Have a fantastic day

Enjoy the picnic!!!!!!!

I haven't seen any rabbits around here this year. I think it has something to do with all of the feral cats that are around here now.

I have definitely been smelling the skunks too!! They come out about 10pm or so.

I thought of changing my name to Jack..."of all trades, master of none."

My neighbor hasn't reported any more incursions, thankfully. Those girls are just wild as the wind. I saw them turning cartwheels in the highway between our houses a couple days ago. That's a fairly busy state highway with lots of log trucks and Walmart trucks. The mother was on her front porch busy talking with someone.

Crazy.

I think about you all on MMC all the time and sure do miss it when I can't make it here. I hope you all are doing well!
Good to see you, CAH! We've missed you here. Sorry to hear you've been under the weather, but hope you feel better soon, friend. Take care! (((Hugs)))

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I'm still sore and covered in bruises from all the manual labor I've been forced to render this past week. My brother is also trying to move this week, and needed my help Sunday. Wow, he has some heavy stuff, including an upright piano...that neither one of them can play. We had to lift that heavy thing onto the trailer, then back off at his new place. AND THEY CAN'T PLAY IT! Grrr.

I think what I need is a week in the Great Smoky Mountains. And that's what I'm getting from June 28 to July 6. I can't wait to get back to my beloved Smoky Mountains! Don't get me wrong; I love Bellville, but there's something about the mountains that calls my name. LOL

I hope y'all have a great day!

I know I'm behind on the posts, but I hope to get caught up soon. Hope you guys have had a great day! Talk to you all tomorrow! Thinking of you all!

An actual good day at work today.
Day off tomorrow.

I hope you all had an enjoyable Monday.


Good night, everyone.
Glad to hear yesterday was a better day at work! Enjoy your day off!!
