Jules, hope there's nothing too seriously wrong with either you or Steven.

Mary Anne, glad to hear your about done with the leaves, that must be a never ending battle for you!

It was another warm one, but it's supposed to drop about 30 degrees tonight & tomorrow!

Hope everyone gets to feeling better; just heard on the news tonight that pneumonia is really on the rise here in the States right at the moment.

Looks like I've been MIA again. Busy with the kids and working in the yard. I didn't come in til after dark tonight since it seems to come so fast. Have one flower bed left to do and hope to attack that one tomorrow. I've got just about all of my neighbors leaves cleaned up and there's not that many left to blow over. What ever does is just going to stay.

Sandi and MaryAlice, hope you're both feeling better.

Jules, thinking of you and Steven and hope all is okay with the blood work.

It's late and I'm heading up to bed. Need to finish that yard work and tomorrow night instead of girls night out being dinner and a movie, we're just going out to have a Christmas dinner so probably won't be on tomorrow.

Wishing you a good health. Take care and thinking of all of you.

Good morning, I'm so tired. Oh well I'm off 3 days after today. Then Wal-Maet nonsense kicks in , I work 1 day and am off 2. I can put up with customers and their nonsense when I'm tired, but I'm to tired to put up with co worker attitude. Somebody just might find out that this quite grandma that smiles and cracks jokes can give attitude too. I 15 months only 2 have heard from me, but one of them is pushing my buttons again. She isn't old enough to drink, has only been their 2 months and instead of asking me to help with things says thinks like "you got ta ____." and not in a nice voice.

Jules, we will be sitting here waiting to hear about your "questionable" blood tests, just praying and hoping all is fine with you and Steven both.

Today is another busy one for me and we have a dinner tonight. Will try and check in later.
I am feeling a bit better and MaryAlice, hope you are too.

Allergies!!! Absolute bummer. I'm hoping everyone is doing better today.

It was a cold start today as I went shopping, but I thought I'd stick in a short sleeve top just in case, just as well it turned really warm by 11.00am.

Had a call from the doctors this afternoon it appears my blood tests need "discussing" Stevens as well, I think his Tegretol level may be down, or at least I hope that's the only problem. Goodness knows what the problem is with my tests, but it looks like I was right about something being "not quite right" about how I'm feeling. Will have to wait now until Thursday to find out.

Peace and long life - Jules

Hope you both, Mary Alice & Sandi, get to feeling better!

It was warmer here today, but rainy; we need the rain since November was dry. We're still not caught up from the summer's drought. The weather change always stirs me up too, so I took allergy meds & am zonked today. Could hardly keep my eyes open even after an afternoon nap.

I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.

- Dr. Seuss

Good morning. Last night I woke up about 3 this morning, so cramped up I was all all curled up in a ball and so cramped I couldn't move even my fingers. I did some mind relaxing things and relaxed enough to go to sleep. I wore up this morning feeling like I had been hit by a Mac truck. I called DD, RN, and she said as much as I might want to, not to sit very long, keep moving and to stop my diet, go on a high potassium and calcium diet and if it happened again call the DR. For a funny, DD says RN stands for Registered Ninja.

I've really enjoyed Beka this weekend. Beka is 11 now and like a lot of 11 year olds can be everywhere but with the family. Twice she curled up in the recliner next to me so we could go though my Kindle books and find some for her. Yes I have a Kindle for her when she is at my house. I think there are some things better left to the imagination and some things if they aren't needed for the story should be left out, so I don't really worry about that. We were just looking for things that an 11 year old girl might like.

Hope you are feeling better today Sandi.

I must admit I'm a little tired today, don't ask me why. I slept like a rock last night, but all I want to do at the moment is have a nap.

I'm cooking today getting a few things done before the hot weather gets going again. Have just finished some Sushi rolls, chicken soup (again!!) and some fried rice. Will probably need a nap soon anyway.

Had a great time at the craft show with my BFF and her daughter. Lots of goodies to look at and I did buy a few gifts. I am so tired tonight and very "achey" so will head on to bed.

Have a great Sunday and hugs to you all.

Idiot me accidentally deleted my email inbox messages, too many people talking while I'm on the computer and before you know it, poof all gone!!

I don't think the tests for Cushings will be positive, but it will be good to know for sure, the doctor is testing for a couple of other problems that might cause the weight battles I'm having, like thyroid etc.

I swear the needle the nurse used this morning was a crowbar!!! It hurt the moment she stuck it in all the way up 'till she took 3 vials of blood. I tell you Dracula has nothing on her!!!

Sticky and uncomfortable here again today so I didn't get much done after I came home from the doctors. Hopefully tomorrow will be cooler and I'll be able to get some things done.

Hope everybody is doing great emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm with you, Mary Anne, I wish they give me a funnel; they give the smallest Dixie cup they can find (3 oz); my dh & I were laughing about this the other day, because he had a test & was saying they give you enough wipes to scrub your whole body. I told him I needed a funnel because my aim was what it used to be. emoticon emoticon I do hope your tests come out negative for Cushings, Jules.

We have an owl that usually roosts in our pine for a while, doesn't stay long, I've had him fly out of there when I was in the back yard after dark & scare the bejeebers out of me! We had to cut down several trees that were ruined by the storm this summer so we have a mammoth brush pile out back which were going to burn later this winter. Now we have a hawk roosting every morning in a tree close by, watching for any sign of a rabbit or mouse etc. in that brush. My hubby keeps telling the dogs they better watch out. I told him the hawk would probably bring them back, especially Susie, she's such a scrapper & grouch sometimes.

Leanne, I would love to give you some of our heat here in Florida, it was almost 80 today and will be high 70's tomorrow!!!

Mary Anne, I've tried to some more decorating today but it is slow. I'll be gone most of tomorrow to a big craft show here in town. I have to be there early as I have an "early bird" ticket. This is a show that my DD and I usually go to together so it's kinda sad for me that she can't be here. We wouldn't be putting all these decorations up if they weren't coming for Christmas. It will be worth it when they are finished. Hubby loves decorating the outside and our neighborhood looks forward to seeing what he's doing new each year!!

Jules, I sure pray your tests come out well too.

Won't be on much tomorrow till very late so have a great Saturday!

Put up a few more decorations today. Figured I'd do it this way instead of trying to do it all at once. Since it's suppose to be in the 50's this weekend, I'll do the outside things.

Sandi, I'm like you - have lots to put up for Christmas. I've always loved the decorations and the lights but I'm debating how much longer I'm going to do all of them.

Jules, hope your tests come out okay. That had to be too funny about the funnel. I hate peeing in a cup or one of the little bottles. Next time I'll have to ask for a funnel and see what they say!!!!

Did some more clean up on one of the flower beds this afternoon. As I'm cutting things back, I was finding new growth. My double Iris plants had already put up buds but I cut them and brought them in the house before the cold. They opened beautifully and I got to enjoy them. Crazy weather!!!!

Jules, over here they give us a toilet basin insert to catch the urine and it is shaped so when you pour it into the bottle it directs it to a small area for no spilling (we hope).

Thank you all for the well wishes and birthday goodies. What a treat to open all those notes. I would love to trade you for some of your heat today here it has not yet got to 30 degrees F and it si already a little after 11 AM. I have been on vacation this week and have gotten quite a bit doen in the house but usually I go outside and put up my Christmas decorations but has been too cold for me to go out there. I have asthma and it is not good in the cold windy air. Oh well they say next week is going to be warmer again of course I go back to work. So may be decorating under the lights. Have a great day all and again Thank You. emoticon

Good morning. I need to get moving, it is getting warm today. The temp will be in the 80's This afternoon I go get Beka for the weekend.

I'm so use to the humidity that when the humidity gets below 50%, it seams I'm always putint lotion on.

I don't mind the heat as long as it's the dry heat. I hate sticky weather, that was what it was like yesterday and today, knocks the stuffing out of me.

We have a few owls here, we have one we call a "Mopoke" it's call is exactly that "Mopoke"

I like Spring and Autumn weather, warm enough to go short sleeved but not hot enough to overheat you and definitely not too cold to freeze.

I went to the doctor today to ask him about the Cushings, he doesn't think it is but will do some tests for my peace of mind. I have to fast tonight for the blood test tomorrow and have to do an overnight urine test. We all fell about laughing when the receptionist brought out the bottle and whipped out this funnel. After I laughed so hard I asked her where she wanted me to stick that? I told her if I came in tomorrow morning walking funny, she'd know I'd stuck it in the wrong place. Well the three of us cackled so hard the doctor came out to see what was going on. Glad I've got a sense of humour, I'm going to need it when I take back, what seemed like a gallon bottle, full of pee. Thank goodness she gave me an opaque bag to stick it in.

This has been a busy day. We started getting our decorations up but it takes me a week to get them all done. I do quite a bit in the house and hubby does the outside. Since our daughter and family will be here for Christmas, I will do more than usual. Very tired tonight and still have lots to do!

Once in awhile we see owls when we are at our cabin. Even here in No. Fl. when I take Zoey out late I will hear but not see one occasionally.

I see an occasional owl. The one I'll never forget was when I was growing up in Maine. I saw a snow owl. We have a lot of birds and a pair of hawks that hang around here. One of the hawks will even sit on the deck rail.

The sun wouldn't stay out all day and the temps were still cold. By the weekend we should be in the high 50's!!!!

I'll agree with you Kay.....I don't want to see that heat that we had last summer. Even the kitties didn't want to go out. And now I just hope we don't have a bugger of a winter.

We've been having cold weather, but it's clear & sunny so it doesn't feel as cold, even though it's been below normal. I like it & hope it kills the germs; everyone's got that respiratory virus everywhere you go, people hacking & sneezing. It is supposed to warm up & rain though.

Sounds like you're getting our last summer's weather out there, Jules, I'll take this over that heat.Yuck, I sure hope we don't have another one like that again.

Finally done with the decorations, I get slower every year. Couldn't be because I get older every year! emoticon

We had an owl here a couple of weeks ago MaryAlice. They are pretty rare around my parts, and I stood outside for a long time just to listen to the hoots.

In our neighborhood we have issues with a coyote. He loves to dig into the high school trashcan about half a block down. It's one of the reasons I'm so strict about making sure Raya is always on her leash outside.

"Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together."

Good morning. I went for a walk in the dark last night. One of the things I really enjoy is hearing the owls. The people around here don't like owls that and the owls don't have a very long life span because of poison put out for rodents, so I don't hear them that often any more. Well I heard an owl then saw a bird swoop down and grad something out of the grass beside me. Now I couldn't see the bird well enough to identify it, but it was too late for hawks and the bird was silent. Owls are known for being silent.

If I could send some heat on over I would Mary Anne. We'll have a break in the weather for the next few days, so there'll be some relief. I think our AC is down on its coolant, it wasn't cooling properly today, it was comfortable inside but not as cool as it should have been. I'll get the installers out early next week to fix it for us.

Jules, can you send a little of that heat this way????? It's in the 20's right now. At least the sun was out all day and I took the girls out for awhile. They didn't want to stay out for too long which was fine with me.

I think I'm going to put the lights in the windows by the end of the week. I've always loved them. Some of my neighbors put their trees up Thanksgiving day. I usually wait until December but I do start putting some of the other things up. Might even do the outside things since it's supposed to be in the 50's this weekend. Will feel like a heat wave.

Have a good night everyone.

Raya and I are going on a walk after work. I'm hoping we can get a mile in before it gets too dark. Today is one of those rare perfect fall days. Happy Wednesday everyone.

Stinker of a day here today @ the 95 mark and sticky as well. Did a little work outside in the morning but started on Rays curtains this afternoon. Had to have a nap @ 4pm I was totally pooped out.

Going to be hotter tomorrow, so it'll be a get everything done in the morning day and inside with the AC day.

Jules, I like the cat poop idea since I did blow some back in their yard but knew they would just end up in mine with the first wind.

Kay, I found some really nice candles for the window that have their own built in holder to keep them in the windows. You could get ones that plugged in or ones that ran on batteries. The ones the ran on batteries had LED light which don't use much power. Only problem was it would have cost me almost $200 to get them for all the windows I put them in.....bummer.

Sandi, guess you were busy but sounds like a good day.

It was rainy and cold here with snow off and on. Had calls to make for dad, paperwork and ran to the store. Real exciting right. Will be gone most of the day tomorrow since it's lovely eye injection day.

Have a good night everyone.

Mary Anne, I think you should blow all the leaves back to the neighbor!! lol I puts lights in my windows too, but still mess with the extension cords, because I always figure the battery ones wouldn't last that long. Maybe they've improved them, that would be nice, because it is a hassle, then I put timers on them too.

I did do decorating yesterday & today I'm too tired to do much of anything. I stayed up too late doing it; even though I've cut back some.

My daughter is getting some Christmas decorations put up in the upstairs, and when I went up yesterday, I had to dodge some tinsel garland that hadn't been finished being put up.

Life is made of fear. Some people eat fear soup three times a day. Some people eat fear soup all the meals there are. I eat it sometimes. When they bring me fear soup to eat, I try not to eat it, I try to send it back. But sometimes I'm too afraid to and have to eat it anyway.

I was thinking Mary Anne if your neighbour is so generous in sending his leaves over to you, maybe you could reciprocate by sending some cat poop back to him, fair trade in my book emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have some solar lights and some coloured solar spears (for the wont of a better word) that I can put outside, but inside I really don't decorate too much, I'll stick some tinsel up but I think that's going to be the limit. I made our annual charity donations in lieu of Christmas presents the other day and I'm going to donate some dog food to the shelters this year as well. We've got all we need so I'll make sure Christmas dinner/lunch is special and hopefully that will be enough

Happy Monday everyone, I'm late checking in here! Busy day, I did finally make it back to Curves. I'm debating about letting my membership drop, I'm getting a little bored with it although it is a good program.
I'll be making turkey soup later this week. I put all kinds of veggies in mine.

Hubby got the Christmas decorations down and now I need to get started decorating. It takes so long to get it all put up that I like to keep it up for awhile!

Glad to hear everyone had a great turkey day. I just buy the turkey breast - no drumsticks or wings. What's left is in the freezer waiting to be made into a nice turkey soup on some cold snowy day!

I plan on putting the lights in the windows this weekend. Love the candles but hate the extension cords! I saw some really nice ones with a peuter base that used LED lights and were battery operated but would cost almost $200 to do all my windows. Maybe they'll drop the prices after Christmas.

Heading to bed. Spent the entire day raking my neighbors leaves that had blown into my yard. What a mess but we could have snow tomorrow and I didn't want to deal with that mess.

Checking in - I was pretty much off the computer since last Wednesday.

Had a good Thanksgiving holiday. My partner's daughter drove in from Atlanta (to Northern VA) very early Thursday morning, and has been with us since. My son and his GF joined us for turkey and football. A good time was had by all - even though I WAY overate! Still - under 2 lbs gained - I count that almost a win!

Well that's a bit of a bummer Kay. Leftover chicken is just as good though, I'm always on the lookout for recipes for leftover chicken. One Rotisserie chook is way too much for one meal here. I'm getting quite a folio of recipes.

I may browse a little tomorrow, but if it was like last year, it was so slow because of the volume of traffic, I probably won't buy much. Went to a few stores today & it was back to more normal levels. I really don't have much to buy anyway, because all kids in my family are grown and want gift cards.

Glad to hear your dad's BP is doing better, Mary Anne.

I'd like to have leftover turkey to make soup, but with 5 grown nephews, forget it, nothing left. Since we have a major turkey processor in the area, they sell whole turkeys already deboned & skinless so I don't even have a carcass.

I've just read through the posts and now let's see what I can remember!!!!

Kat, fantastic that Michael will be home. What a nice Christmas present!!!

Jules, I'm with you on the turkey soup. I love to pile in all sorts of veggies. I bagged up the leftover veggies with the leftover turkey and can't wait to get started (all are in the freezer for right now).

Sounds like everyone had a good turkey day. As for black Friday, I didn't leave the house but I did let my fingers do some walking on the computer.

MaryAlice, my son loves to buy the raw unsalted nuts in the bulk section at Wegman's. We usually get some before we do any long trips since they're nice to nibble on.

Have a great night everyone. Still trying to get caught up from being MIA so much.

By the way, dad's bp has been fine and I am making an appointment with the chiropractor for an evaluation. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Good morning. I'm off today. I have big plans for exercising since I haven't gotten any intentional exercise in several days, but know that my body is in charge. I stretched in the shower last night and that helped a lot. Mutt says we are going to walk and walk, but I thinking some walking and more floor exercise.

I like unsalted nuts and have a time finding them in the stores, so get them on line. I had put about $60 in my cart when I had to get off the computer, when I got back on Black Friday my cart was $19. That is the only thing I bought. I have noticed that some companies are controlling their prices, Kindle and Apple come to mind, so the prices are the same every where. The difference comes how much in store credit you git.

I had a look at the Black Friday stuff on offer at Amazon, but I couldn't see anything there I was overly interested with. I don't care if it's half price, if I don't want it I don't want it

What shopping I did on Black Friday with GD and DIL was at the mall and it wasn't too bad. Thursday night we rode out to Target since they were opening at 9:00pm (GD wanted to go) and the parking lot was completely filled and the line wrapped around the store. It was ridiculous! I said no way were we getting into that mess!

I didn't go to any Black Friday sales, but dh did. He asked me to go buy I said no way; he went to WalMart at 8p.m. He said everybody ought to experience that once in their life even if they weren't buying. He got two items that he went for; I guess you need to take a crew. Only one man got escorted out by the cops for opening the shrink wrap covering the sale items.
No Internet yesterday was windy & wind takes out the phone & Internet. I've complained but it doesn't help.

MaryAlice I agree with you, my body is telling me that Black Friday was here. I am still sore from setting everything up. I also work at Walmart (22 years) and this was my 21st Black Friday set up. Our store did not have any major problems, just a couple of ladies fighting over the sheet sets! Most of the customers were pretty good but when the first sale started at 8 it was bedlam. People ripping and grabbing, all the associates just stayed clear. It was very long days and I will be glad to be back to normal hours on Monday.

Good Morning. All Black Friday is over. I was on the register for 3 days and my body is telling me about it. I go in at 9:30 this morning. I'm sure these hours aren't helping any. At 8 last night 24 hours after black Friday sals started a man came up to the front. He was very serious and very concerned but it was all we could do to keep a straight faces. He had been coming to our store for years and had never seen it such a mess.

Well DH has breakfast and I need to get ready for work.

Glad you had a good day with your DIL and GD Sandi.

It's hot over here today and I've done a little too much this morning so I'm going to take it easy for the rest of the day.

I gave my apple tree a buzz cut this morning as I need to cover it with bird netting. My little hands just won't reach up and over it the way it is at the moment. If I can't cover it I may as well cut the stupid thing down, I'm not growing fruit for the cockatoos to eat.

Jules, thanks for the tip about the lemon juice. Cushings is one of the diseases the vet thought Zoey had at first but now he doesn't think so. It probably would be a good idea to be tested.

Mary Alice, I just can't believe all you went through, glad you survived.

Nellie, you know how people are! So many times they speak before they think!

We had a fun day shopping with my daughter in law and granddaughter, then a nice 50th anniversary celebration dinner with friends. I've got to clean tomorrow after having 4 dogs in my house!!!!

Last night while I was at my oldest daughter's house, her ex who was also a guest kept saying people shouldn't go to Walmart because they are trying to unionize and are going on strike and he is a union worker, etc. Then halfway through the evening, he said, Oh, well, my job isn't retail so I guess it doesn't matter.

None of us were bothering to argue with him. My daughters just kept looking at Black Friday ads and comparing prices.

"Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: 'I'm with you kid. Let's go.'"
– Maya Angelou

Good morning. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving yesterday. I think it went better then last ear except for a few computer glitches. I could hear some commotion and some of my co workers saw some altercations, but I saw some idiots and plenty of people that just shook their heads at them.

By idiots I mean a woman came up to the counter with 3 very full baskets. I was half way though the 2ed basket and her husband came running up yelling and screaming. I couldn't figure out who was doing it all wrong, but he was ticked off. He went though everything I had scanned, had me tell how much it rang up for and checked his curricular from 2 other store to see if they had it cheaper. Then had me void off a lot of things so he could divid it into 5 orders. The whole time his wife is shaking her head telling him the last basket was price match and they could divid the stuff later. An order that should have taken 5 min took 20 min when I have a long line. The thing that got me is that not one person in line behind them complained.

So many people had eyes bigger then their wallets that I had so much stuff pilled up around me that no one better yell fire. about 1/2 way though the night people were going though the stuff around the registers because the shelfs were empty.

I'm so tired I'm not thinking much.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I was thankful yesterday for the bath after working hard in the garden all day, boy was I sore and tired.

If you try the Lemon juice in the soup, try a little at first and add enough to give the taste you like. It really lifts the flavour.

Got the fans out of the shed and put them together this morning, it's starting to get warm, but not warm enough for the AC. Clipped the top off the apple tree so I can cover it with netting, boy it was hard, what I wouldn't do for another couple of inches. It's terrible being a little shortie!!

Thinking of going to the doctors to get tested for Cushings Syndrome. I saw a program "Mystery Diagnosis" and noticed that some of the symptoms are what I'm suffering with. I think I'll only need a blood test initially to test for cortisol, but I'd love to know why I can't get rid of this weight and this tiredness.

Peace and long life - Jules

Hi Everyone and a late Happy Thanksgiving. My DIL and I are sitting here with our laptops/ipads so thought I would at least check in.

Jules, never heard of putting lemon in, sure will try that!

Kat, I'm sorry you don't have more of your family there to celebrate, yes, feel free to come on down anytime!!!!

Mary Alice, I'm glad you survived!

Hugs

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving. I was on a register for 8 hours yesterday. 8 hours when I never had a break to pick up my register. Since I've been in Customer Service I've only done short breaks on the register and my body is complaining this morning. I'm taking it easy I don't think I'll be in Customer Service for the next 2 days and tonight there is a 2 hour sale on flat screen TVs. Only 6 1/2 hours tonight and at least I have a job and our house is paid for so we can live on a cashiers salary.

While we don't celebrate Thanksgiving over here, I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Kat I'm glad Michael will be home for Christmas, I know how you miss him.

Sandi I stick all sorts of things in my soup depending on how much time I have. Usually carrots,onions, a little parsnip, celery, garlic (of course!!) parsley, pepper and salt and chicken stock and a packet of chicken noodle soup mix, just to make it a little tastier. When it's cooked I put the juice of half a lemon to freshen it up

My son and his family got here this evening, we went out to dinner which was good since I've also been cooking all day! This year I'm going to make soup out of the carcass. I've made turkey vegetable and turkey noodle/or rice and both are really good.

Kat, so glad to hear about your family being with you, that is great news.Glad to hear about Michael too!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving all!!!

Been cooking today, so just now getting on! What do you guys put in your turkey/chicken soups?? Sounds good!

Glad to here of your loved ones being home for Christmas, Kathleen!

Mary Alice, I guess they're open anyway, the specials just start earlier. I saw where there are some employees talking about walkouts on Black Friday. Any in your area?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

"Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control. These three alone lead to sovereign power."
– Alfred Tennyson

Good morning, Yesterday I took Mutt out to a field that has been mowed for hay and has a path though it where they just redid the gas lines. It might be hard to believe with me living out in the country, but there are very seldom places I can let Mutt off leash to run. I walked the gas line. Slow going since the ground was anything but smooth but good exercise and a new place to walk. Mutt ran and ran then sleep most of the day. Mutt likes to run and when he runs he just runs and runs with a one track mind. I have to make sure where he runs is safe for him and he isn't going to freak any horses or cows. A 60 pound dog running full tilt though the pasture upsets animals.

We are under a burn ban again. I knew I was filling the fish pond a lot, but had't thought it had reached that stage.

I can't say I blame anyone for not wanting to stand in line to be squished and squashed in mad sale queues. I'd rather wait for the idiots to take a hike before I go anywhere a department store. In actual fact I'm shopping online more and more, less stress and fuss.

Mary Anne the chiropractor might just make your Dad feel better, I'm not suggesting he'll change his blood pressure, but an adjustment just may make him more relaxed and at ease.

While I don't have turkey roasts over here, I'm often making soup from the leftover BBQ chicken, I made a pot full just a few minutes ago.

Peace and long life - Jules

It's not just Walmart that's opening on Thanksgiving. I can't believe the people that have been camping in at Best Buys to be first in line not even knowing what the sales are. You won't find me at the stores.

I'm trying to get dad into the chiropractor for a check up. He use to go for his back and neck twice a year and hasn't gone for over two years. He's been complaining that sometimes his neck hurts. Probably won't be able to do anything until next week but I think it's worth looking into.

I spent the entire day raking leaves and the yard looks much better. I realized that all the leaves I was raking on one side belonged to my neighbors trees....thanks to the wind storms we've had. Funny thing is, their yard looks clean. lol Tomorrow going to do a quick vacuum and dust and wait for the kids. Doing a pot roast.....one of our favorites.

Is everyone ready for turkey???? I can't wait to make soup after!!!!
