Good Morning all!!! It is hell week, the last before the end of the Federal fiscal year, but I am well ahead of the game this year, hopefully there will be no big suprises.
Hope everyone has a great day and wouldn't you rather see this sunrise today:

It's a dark and gloomy morning here in Western NY, and I'm not talking about the weather. Yeah, the Bills lost another game, and unfortunately, I had to see it in person.
DW did not go to the game because the day before, her mother had a broblem in her groin, and the MD in the clinic thought it may have been a strangulated hernia, but could not get her in to get a CT. So yesterday morning, she had the scan and other tests which revealed an infected lymph gland. A few days ago, MIL tripped and bruised her toe very badly, and the Doc thinks the infestion went up her leg to the lymph gland. So now she's on Cipro to combat the infection. Never a dull moment!
Gloomy here just like Ed - due to the Red Sox losses, the Pats loss and the weather is dull and grey. At least the winds have gone. They took lots of the leaves with them, the colors are not going to be very great this year. What a disappointment. DH got called out in the afternoon - even tho' he wasn't on call. Too many outages due to the wind for one crew to take care off - it will help pay the monthly college bills. He starts his normal on call today.
Got my printer working so will be putting nose to the grindstone this morning and really try to get things done - a month of financial paper work in a week. Also have to make a dish as tonight is the monthly women's meeting at Church - we have a potluck and meeting each month. Also have a wake to attend for a church members brother. He had throat cancer.
Yesterday was noneventful - church, then a late breakfast, then the Red Sox game then later on the Pats. It wasn't pretty. Oh, and cleaning up after the dog, who kept throwing up on the living room carpet. Thank God for shampooers.
SIL informed me they are going on a cruise in Feb. But due to the fact I don't know when my jaw surgery will be scheduled I can't book anything.
I'm trying not to be depressed about it, but it is getting hard.
Good Morning .
Beautiful picture,and would I ever like to see a sunrise that beautiful!
It's starting to dry out in our area after all the heavy rains we've had.
Y'All have a wonderful day!

Good morning from Central Texas where it is nice and cool, but the sun is not up yet. I love your picture Doug.
Yesterday was filled with cleaning, organizing, and football. What a great game that was with Cincinnati, and the Steelers.
Hubby has less than a week now. I have taken the week off, and we have something planned each day. Updated Powers of Attorney. Wills, Insurance, my passport. I get a free one, so that's not to bad. This is the first year that the kids are put as beneficiaries. The rest of the time, we will just spend together. His diet is going well, and his numbers are very low, so no problems there.
I hope that all of you are well today. Have a good one!!
Doug, what an awesome picture to start my day with. The day here in the Houston/Galveston area will be beautiful today, but I'm moving a little slowly. Went to bed with a headache last night and I'm not quite with the program.
Ed, I hope your MIL is better soon.
Luanne, you and your husband are in my thoughts.
Well, I'm off to work, ready or not .
Make it a great day, everyone!

Morning All, from Montreal where it's a might bit chilly at 8C (46F).
Yesterday it was unusually warm and humid, but I felt like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz - the winds were so strong! I tried hanging laundry out on the line, but it just kept blowing away!
Doug, I'll never see a sunrise like that, even on a cruise because you'll never find me up that early!
Jen, we had alot of power outages here too yesterday. Also alot of leaves fallen before they had a chance to turn colour!
fasteddie, good luck to your mother-in-law.
Sailing gal, enjoy the apple picking. I too am going apple picking this week with the daycare kids, Wenesday, I think.
Good Morning CruiseMates!! Thanks for the great pic this morning Doug. That is the second beautiful sunrise I saw today. My employer came knocking at my door this morning to tell me to go to the great room and see the gorgeous sunrise over Webster Lake. It was stunning a bright red glow over the lake that was smooth as glass. That and the foliage made a beautiful sunrise. Day off for me today. I am meeting friends for lunch. Have a great day CruiseMates.

Good morning from sunny Florida. The weekend was busy and great. Went to Sanibel with dh to go to the Spa and afterwards we went to the cheesecake factory. wow that food was good! Besides the $500 from church my dh called me this morning and someone else donated another $500. I am hoping we can get the money together that is needed to finish the kitchen as they have to take in 8 more kids.
Have a wonderful day. I have to go to the post office and my dh is coming home early today and tonight ministry classes.
