    Good morning FMily! It's back to work for me today too. Monday after a vacation has to be the worst ever. Lots and lots to do to get caught up again, so it'll be a busy week for me.

    It's grey and dreary this morning, temps around 50 to start the day. We're expecting 60s for the highs most of the week, but mornings are cool enough to require a jacket or sweater.

    I'm enjoying the new laptop a great deal, so I guess my old one dying was a blessing. I can now work with paint shop pro and my photos without fear of the whole thing locking up on me. I'll try to get a few photos up this week from vacation.

    Good morning,

    Yes, it was a good weekend. I'm thankful it's finally starting to cool down a bit. At least it's now in the upper 80's instead of upper 90's.

    My grandson, Johnny is small. But he weighed 3.9 lbs when he was born. He now weighs 25 lbs and is 36" tall. What a guy. My grand-daughter, Randa, is 8 mos. old - weighs 18 lbs. and is almost 24" long. Her mama is tall though, about
    5'10 so she'll probably take after her.

    I could go on and on about my kids.

    Have a good one, ya'll

    Good morning everyone from hot Ark. 98 sun., more of the same all week. What ever happened to the 4 seasons, here we only have hot and cold and no in between. When the temperature drops we will go from A/C to heat within 3 days. It always happens that way.

    Not a lot to do. I already did my daily 3 plus miles, what to do next? I need to get stronger as I will be preaching at a pastorless church this coming sunday. I will be filling in for a pastor friend whio will be on vacation Oct. 3rd. Then preaching at another church Oct. 10th. to the 13th. I must be stronger by then to do all that.

    I am, getting stronger, now to get over the allergies. Ann has been a bit sick with a virus or allergies, oldest son has had it also. Youngest son has them all the time like me. Too much garbage in the air around here that causes this crud.

    I soon will get results and ideas for the porphyria tests I had done, get results of blood work for allergies, get the skin tests done. Hope there is something to be done that will help as I am fed up with this year around runny nose, sore sinuses, and chest congestion. Whatever I did to bring this on and deserve it, I am sorry and won't do it again. Please let the punishment be done.

    Praying for cooler and better weather. I also prayed for all of you suffering the wrath of the dragon.

    Good morning, everyone! What a blessing to be alive and have one more day with my husband and children!

    Spent the weekend watching football and even felt good enough to go out for target practice with my hunting rifle. Probably a silly idea, considering my insurance denied my prescription for Lyrica and I ran out of samples. May their "bottom line" give them everything they deserve! Still I needed to get out of the house very badly and shooting is rather relaxing as long as I remember to tuck it in tight.

    Woke up twice after my nightly baseball bat beatings. Glad I'm getting more samples today! Who knew that just the one (out of three) painkiller could have such an effect!

    Here's hoping for a productive and comfortable week for everyone!

    Good Morning....

    I hope you all are having a better time than me right now...I have been an emotional wreck this know what I mean, I am sure...there doesn't have to be a rhyme or reason...everything just seems wrong...

    I am sure it started with taking my mom out shopping last Friday..and watching her go downhill is sooo difficult. Then all the little things just start piling up. This morning I got an e-mail that I didn't qualify for an office job in the school district. They didn't say why. I looked up the job qualifications and they wanted office experience. My office experience goes from before my kids were I had not put that on the I went back and did that...but it is probably too late now..and I cannot even remember what dates I worked there....but give me a break..I have a degree, a teaching certificate, years of volunteering in the schools...etc...but if they cannot "click" off a box...then they can't give you a chance...Oh...I am sooooooo ticked about this...I will cool down soon...but just the way my weekend has been going...

    Thanks for letting me vent...
