I got my nails done yesterday.  I let my tech choose my color.  I didn't even realize that it was Navy Blue until my husband looked at them later.  Different for me but this Navy Mom will wear them proudly.  Next time I need to add an anchor.

joshmom, sounds like an weekend.  Our school started Wednesday, 2 hour fog delay today :( 

new help and still I'm behind and can't keep is Crazy. I try to read at least a couple times a week. Yesterday our village (the one I work in) lost their policy Chief, (our only full time police officer) it was crazy calm and quiet all day. when I went to post office and bank, there's usually no place to park, I seen 1 car! He's been Chief for 17 years, he just took his oldest son to college last Saturday......A big hearted man, that is gonna be missed. please keep our community in your prayers. reports are he died in his sleep, many gathered at our office to tell of seeing, talking with him, Wednesday. Thursday...a sad day indeed. I did get my puppy Wednesday night. Still trying on names. Any suggestions? He's a black labradoodle. only pictures on my phone will try to get camera out this weekend. busy weekend with Church Festival, a foster daughter coming home and Chief's funeral.......and I leave next week's end for VA Beach!!!!! Can't wait.

Thank you Maggs, TLynn, Miss.  It was one of those days.  I just reached the end of the rope and not even a thread to hold onto.  Definitely better today.  But then again, I remember who is behind me. Ha Ha.

HI all,

So good to hear that you will be packing those long johns! And honest - you will get the hang of things around here. Especially jumping in with great gossip :).

Yippe burning Man coming up. that means great pics and stories. But mostly wishing you a grand time.

A puppy ! Oh blondie - honest - just what you needed. The puppy will lick any hurts away.

Hey - Miss and Josh - nice hearing from you two. You both always have somethings jumping in your lives. Glad you share. I get to feel the fun too.

Oh Maggs, Honest I am doing that Down the Toilet spell everyday and putting my heart into it. Guess, I'll have to try even harder. When I had days like those of yours - I would say: " What can go right - DOES go right" I'll add it to the spell. gentle hugs.

Shelly, What Maggs posted !! Perfect. Just look at it and remember who is behind you :).

got to go - right now gentle rain with some thunder and a bit of lightning. But it is building Better get off. hugs all

Joshmom, good luck to your son and his football team.  I hope he has a great school year, which I am sure he will as  a cool Junior!   You took me a back to those happy days!  My daughter is in her final year of college, and my son(Sailor) will be starting college in Jan.  I loved the hustle and bustle of getting everything ready for school and yes those football games.  We  continued to go the games after our son graduated, as our daughter was still in high school, and thought we would continue to go after our daughter graduated, but we haven't.   Once you don't have a kid on the field or a kid in school, you move on to what your children are doing at the time.  We started making lots of  2 hour trips to take our daughter something or just to take her out to eat.  Enjoy every minute of these days, they go by way too quick!  

Shelly, good to hear from you, but sorry you have to work with someone who tries to bring you down!  Ditto to what joshmom said!  You've got this, girlfriend!  Sending prayers your way.

Maggs, when it rains it pours!  Bless your heart!  I hope things better soon.  Wish you were close enough, and I would loan you my sister's ORANGE Jeep that I drove when my daughter wrecked her car!  She wouldn't mind a bit, and you would get lots of attention, like I did....maybe it was my driving! LOL!  It was a straight stick and I had not driven one in 15 years, so it was show!   I sure hope things better for all of you.  

Hope you all have a great day, and stay cool!

Shelly - HUGS!!!!  Don't let that lady get to're better than her and don't forget it!  

I think Maggs pic said it best....heeheehee had to chuckle on that one!

Hope the car situation gets better Maggs, real soon!

Anti M - Enjoy Burning Man, hope it's a great event for everyone this time

My son was actually excited for his first day of school this morning....I think being an upper classman had a lot to do with it! Plus he's only in class for a half day, second half he is going to the career center to learn electronics....following in the footsteps of his two older brothers.

Hugs and a Great Day to All!

Son is still carless, We drove him to work, and hubbys car must have been feeling sympathetic, because his alternator died! we were down to one car between the three of us. Not effective at all. Work starts next week for me, Hubby needs his car for appointments. So driving son around.  Not ideal, but we have to live with it. 

 DIL is sick, Sailor went to UniversityOf Maryland for open house today. 

Daughter has a new job, and will be traveling up to New England for training. 

I'm doing a Blonie right now... Need some of her energy .. Please box and send!!! :)
