Default Wednesday's Here! Only three to go to TGIF

Happy Wednesday to all the Cruisemates! And a bright and cheerful one it is here in East Tennessee.

Prayers for everyone to have a fantastic day and especially to those suffering from any illness or travail. Also hope the several waiting medical reports finally get good news!

Morning All, from a sunny and bright Montreal, where it looks like it will be a nice day, despite the ever-present reports of thundershowers later in the day!

Todd, you reminded me, I forgot to share with everyone that my hubby's tests all came back negative last week. The only thing they found, back in June, were the gallstones, and he's still waiting to see a specialist about those.
So thank you everyone,for all your concern and kind words!

I've got to get out of here early, taking the doggie for a good grooming (bath and a haircut) before I go to work. Hubby will pick her up a few hours later when she's all pretty and smells nice again!

Happy Wednesday, I need to take hubby for a good grooming It's really HOT & Humid here, but we're suppose to have rain again, suprise, suprise. I can't ever remember it raining so much through the summer before. Everything is growing like the tropics. Usualy cut grass once a week, after 2 days it needs it again. DH has to work in an unairconditioned plant in all of this heat. He's just drained when he gets home. We're ready for fall, cooler temperatures and our cruise. Yaeh!!!

Hi Kids,
A simply gorgeous day here in Beantown. Humidityis due to come back, but for now it's just ahhhhhhhh:)

Tonight, all my gals are going to see Mama Mia, for my belated Birthday, and then come home for pizza, and the rest of the family. The last movie I saw was saving Private Ryan, 10 yrs ago!!! on that day, when I got home, there was a surprise party waiting for me!

Make it a good one.

Trip, with her book & tea!

I'm counting down my days until my family reunion vacation. This next week and a half will creep by so slow. Everyone have a great Wednesday.

Another hot, humid day in the 90's looms for Virginia Beach. Just think, in eight days, I will be on board the Grandeur of the Seas bound for New England@Canada! Hopefully, being further north, the weather will be a bit cooler!. Rollerdonna, it was great news to hear about your husband; our thoughts and prayers are with you. May all my fellow cruisemates have a day filled with health and happiness!

Default Wednesday's Here Only Three to go to TGIF

Good morning from Southern California. After all the excitement yesterday, I could use some normalcy! We've had many aftershocks. Fortunately, I have not felt any of them, nor do I want to.

Donna, that's good news about James, except for the gall stones.

What happened with Chat last night? Nobody was there!

Gotta go get this day started.

Hazy again out today, and that seems to be the trend for the summer along with thunder and lightening storms.

Things have been busy and hectic to say the least. The estate from the kid is now being settled and we are moving onto liquidation. We saw a decent enough studio apartment, it is a very large room, with long bright windows of about 12 feet, and a balcony that is the same length. It has a very small but very functional little kitchen in an alcove. A good sized bathroom, it will do while he gets through school. Its close to all busses and stores and just everything he needs.

My Mum, it continues to be hard but stable. It is difficult. She, we, still have the goal of one more Holiday season, I dont know if it would happen, but it would be nice. In the mean time, it is her birthday in a couple of weeks and I made reservations at a nice place on the water and they have ( through some connections I have)) given us literally the best table in the dinning room over loaking the water. Growing up, people only went there for a very special occassion, so for her it is a special place.

DS is doing great. He work eval was literally all excellent except for two very good's. ( excellent, Very good, Good, Need improvement and unacceptable) . There were aboput 50 categories. He forgot his lunch yesterday so I brought it and his boss said to me how well he was doing and how responsable etc. I was walking home proud as a peacock! Yes yes, I know I should not bring a 19 year old his forgotten lunch, but in hoesty, it is the first time he forgot it this summer.......so a Mum being a Mum, and the camp being so close.......... In three weeks University stars for him, I still cannot get around my son going to McGill. Not in a bad way, but it was yesterday he was a little boy going to preschool with a elmo back pack on his back!

Pups are all well as well. Lilly has been downright silly lately. Some times she gets this sudden burst of energy and runs like a baby lamb, she tuckers out quickly, BUT I know she really enjoys life now.

Really enjoying the new computers and everything is set up the way I like now.

Have a great day every one.

Good Afternoon Mates,

Trying to get caught up. It is quite impossible.
Hope everyone has a quiet evening.

Wednesday is almost gone now.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
