Default Wake up World!!! Its Monday!!!! <whine>

Good Morning Everyone!! Our little malti-poo Abbie is making her adjustment to our world with a few rough spots. She hasn't quite got the hang of sleeping all nite, so she cries. It breaks your heart not to go running, but it is part of training. Isabelle, our shih-tzu watches her like a hawk, keeps her out of trouble and shoos the cats away.

Short week this week as I am taking black Friday off for a four day weekend. The big boss usually gives us an extra hour off on Wednesday.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Good morning from Orlando where I'm also going to enjoy (?) a short week at work....a day and a half! Really, what's the point?!
The weekend was very busy.....last home game of the season at FSU. Next week is FSU/UF @ Gainesville and then we wait to see where the bowl game will be.
We're having Thanksgiving at Hayley's in Jacksonville....her first foray into the world of large poultry....not to worry, she'll have plenty of help from me and the potential mother in law. Should be a hoot!

Good morning from Central Texas where the fog is very thick. We are suppose to get up to 85 this afternoon.

Teaching Texas history today for a teacher who sounded like she was on deaths door. Wish me luck, because these knuckleheads think The Alamo was just a movie.

Best wishes to all.

Good Day All,

It is a brisk 13 degrees, but the sun is shining! I will not venture outside, and just pretend it is much warmer.

Welcome Home Donna...sorry reality has to be so harsh, as I'm sure your temps must be similar to mine.

Angela - it sounds like you will have a fun Thanksgiving.

Not much new here, just struggling with this dumb cold, yesterday, I hope, was the high point. I truly hope I am over the hump now.

Have a great day all,
NCL DreamCarnival Victory

Good Morning Mates,

3 day work week!!!! Had to get a new laptop because my old one (2 years old) screen broke . It was cheaper to buy a new on than replace the screen.

Luanne: Wasn't The Alamo just a movie?

Hi Kids,
Another bout with physical therapy. I swear when I am done, things that were fine, now scream, WHY!!!

I want to start knitting one of those scarves for an Xmas gift, that were so popular a few yrs back, but I cannot cast on!! My gift pile grows larger.
I am going to start another diaper cake, this time for our new baby, How could I have had one for Aiden, and not the new one. That just wouldn't do;)

Ok I am talked out:):) Luanne, did you get mu bauble pm?

Make it a good one.

Trip, with her book & tea!

Morning All, from Montreal, where reality truly bites.
There is frost on everything and the temp is -5C with windchill of -10C or 14F, just like VTJen.
It's back to work this morning for me, but I really wish I was still doing what I did every morning last week, taking a Yoga class on the beach:

Good morning:

First on the agenda is a visit to the cardiologist at the U and then some cruise preparations. Need to pay a couple of personal bills that aren't pre-paid or payable online and drop off those checks. Why do these have to hit at the one time of the year that we are going away.

Otherwise it's just over three days and I am off to Brasil.

Good morning, Mates!

Jen and RD mentioned weather. Starting Thursday, our highs are forecast to be in the mid 50's for several days. I was thinking about how COLD it's going to get! Maybe I'll re-think.

Doug, love your pictures!

Mike, it won't be long, now! I bet you can already hear the music!

Not much on my agenda today. A little holiday shopping and a little packing. This time next week I'll be in a panic, trying to get everything done, before our cruise!

Happy day!

Good morning all.

Went to the new Bass Pro Shops store in Foxboro yesterday with Tony. This place is AMAZING. When we first went into the parking lot, we thought there was a Patriots game going on. It took us about 15 minutes to find a place to park. The store is huge inside. Of course my fisherman husband found some stuff to buy and LOTS to put on his wish list. I was bored but enjoyed my time watching the fish and turtles in the indoor ponds.

Work is crazy. Our debit card vendor is experiencing all kinds of weird issues. Needless to say, our customers can't always use their debit cards for purchases. It's a very random problem. Hopefully, it will be resolved before Black Friday.

The kids aren't coming home for Thanksgiving, which I find sad. They will be spending the day at Busch Gardens instead.

Not much else going on.

Jen--feel better
Donna--love the picture
Doug--where's the rest of the photos?????????

Hope everyone has a great and safe day.

Default Wake Up World! It's Monday (Whine)

Good morning from a damp, chilly, vey foggy Southern California. i guess the ddampness will have to suffice for rain. The sun will have a hard time burning through this stuff, that's for sure.

Today, the Thanksgiving prep starts. Groan! Keith first plans to go to the gym. He's already complaining about being sore and stiff.

Have a good one, people.

Good afternoon everyone,

I got a giggle out of the posts this morning, so I will share:

Angela Z: you indicated you thought it would be a "hoot" for Haley's "forage into large poultry" So how many people does that "OWL" feed.?

Trip: "diaper cake"???? what's in it ? don't think I want to know

Donna: - first are the one in purple and talk about a rear view - I mean a scenic view - not matter how you say it it just seems wrong

Mike M: you know what they say about Brazil "It ALL has to come off"
