I love doing manual labor and getting sore the next day. It means you got in a good workout. - Branson is one of my favorite places to visit. I love Silver Dollar City.

emoticon so much!
I am in the office today instead of working from home. We have some social media spots and YouTube videos to shoot while the hosts of our program are in town from Branson. I will probably work from home tomorrow.

Congrats on your new doggo...and Andrea, I love your new profile picture.

I am still sore from all the manual labor over the weekend. I am clearly way out of shape.

I am so ready for this semester to be over. Our instructor could not get the live chat session going so he started at 7:35 and decided he was still going to give his full 2 hour lecture. Ugh.

Grooming skills be danged!! Haha I just go for it. I have been doing my own grooming for years. I even groomed our shepherd mix when she was still alive. Took forever sometimes.

I really did a bang up job grooming my Yorkie-Poo, Miracle. She looks like some sort of large, black rodent with huge ears. Will be glad when her fur starts coming in again.

We spoke to the rescue and they said a lot of the weird behavior we are seeing is just because she just finished weening her puppies. It is also the reason she is shedding like crazy. She is so adorable that it is still worth having to sweep the whole house 3 to 4 times a day.

She is really sweet and loves to snuggle and be pet. Her only bad habit so far is she jumps up on the couch. We bought her a really nice dog bed so we just have to teach her to use it.

We get our new rescue dog today. She is a fox red lab and is approximately 2 to 3 years old. She just finished weening a litter of puppies so we are a bit nervous that she will miss them but the rescue organization told us she is at the stage where she wants nothing to do with them.

We owed 1600, and we both claim single 0...we just will always owe I think, unless we have them take additional.

I know your pain. We ended up owing $7k so we are actually reducing our W4 deductions to increase our biweekly withholdings so we do not owe as much money next year.

We're hoping to finish our taxes tonight, but we know we've also got Tuesday evening if we need it. So far we're owing over $5,000!! Yikes! Hopefully after we've entered some more deductions that will go down.

I haven't been to the perot yet. I'm glad you are feeling better and it was only a 24 thing.

My sister bought and closed on a small home for her and her daughter yesterday. I will be going up to Oklahoma to help her paint for my birthday weekend. I'm so proud of her. She's a teacher who lives paycheck to paycheck and been striking with all the others the last two weeks. But she's been saving tax returns and money from sale of her NC home to be able to do this. People who sold it to her gave her a huge discount and sold without realtor because she teachers their kids. She got a 2 bed 2 bath, 1800 SQ foot home for 80k. :)

Had a full weekend of events - birthday party Friday night at the Lakewood Brewery; Arts Festival in Deep Ellum Saturday, where we froze our butts off!; went to visit Aunt Betty yesterday at my BIL & SIL's house. Now I need another weekend to get things done around the house like cleaning and laundry...

I finally got he name and number of the ENT and am going to call their office first thing Monday morning. I asked for someone who was closer to my home in Plano so I am hoping for a good doctor and thorough exam.

That is my threshold. I wait two days and if they still have not called in my referral then I call the doctor myself. I am suspicious of referrals anyways. They do not always send you to the best doctor, they send you to the one that drops off treats at their office.

Well, don't ya just love the medical profession...??? They scare the h#!! out of ya with things like, "I'm really concerned about that knot in the roof of your mouth. I want you to see a specialist ASAP - like tomorrow or the next day. I'll call the ENT and schedule an appointment for you." Well, here it is 4 days later and I haven't heard a thing! I've left 2 voice mails for my GP and NOTHING. Ugh! emoticon

Thanks. I passed that information on to my tour director, my wife. - Well it is official. I no longer have the old Dodge Ram. It was hard to say goodbye but I am now the happy owner of a 2014 Toyota Tundra Platinum. It is so nice inside that I feel like I bought a Cadillac or a Lexus. But it still drives like a big truck so I am happy.

I'm actually on a mailing list for New Orleans events and this is what they sent me today:

UPCOMING SUMMER EVENTS
May
23-27 New Orleans Wine and Food Experience
25-27 Bayou Country Superfest

June
2-3 New Orleans Oyster Festival*
8-10 New Orleans Pride*

July
4 July 4th French Quarter Fireworks*
5-8 Essence Festival

August
1-31 COOLinary New Orleans
3-5 Satchmo SummerFest
4 Whitney White Linen Night*
11 Red Dress Run
12 Dirty Linen Night *

September
1-3 Southern Decadence*
22-23 National Fried Chicken Festival*

*Free admission

The beignets are a MUST have! Everyone goes to Cafe du Monde, but we actually prefer Cafe Beignet. It's a little smaller place and not nearly as crowded as a rule, especially if you go on a week day. The coffee is the best! Rule #1 for eating beignets - DON'T WEAR BLACK! I thought this was some sort of superstitious thing, but it turns out it's just because the powdered sugar gets all over you. Haha

The National WWII Museum is worth a visit as well.

Believe it or not, the best place we found for inexpensive souvenirs was CVS. There are a lot of chachki shops everywhere for those special items you might be looking for, but as far as t-shirts, hoodies, Tervis, etc. we always go to CVS.

Both the Ghost Tours and the Cemetery Tours are fun and informational. Not all ghosts and goblin talk as you might think. Lots of history about the town. We found GroupOns for both tours and enjoyed them both.

I'll post more as I think of it. emoticon

I am not sure where you live but I have a close friend that is an ENT. He practices out of McKinney. He is also one of the highest rated ENTs in Texas. He used to be chief of surgery but it was stealing too much of his personal time so he recently stepped down from that role. - I love food, music, and wildlife. Neither one of us drink alcohol so that part of New Orleans is lost on us.

I have never been to new Orleans. I've always wanted to though.

Web MD is the devil, they always say you have canncer or some equally scary thing. Don't worry too much if you can help it, I will keep you in my prayers regardless.

Well, I got some (kinda) scary news at the dr's office yesterday. I didn't mention in my post yesterday that the source of my sore throat seems to be a large knot/bump deep under the skin in the roof of my mouth. After seeing my PCP, he wants me to see an ENT for a CT scan. He said he didn't want to even guess what it could be. Suffice it to say, I've googled my symptoms and was up most of the night worrying. WebMD.com is the devil!!! Haha

As far as New Orleans goes - where do I start??? I've been 3 times and love the place. Tell me what sort of things you're into and I'll make some recommendations based on that.

We are going truck shopping this evening. We are just going to test drive today and then probably buy in the next few weeks. I will miss my Dodge Ram but it is a 2004 and is approaching 200k miles so it is time for a new truck.

Well, we are back from our long weekend getaway. It was so nice getting away. We shopped and ate all day, then spent the evenings in the hot tub and on the porch overlooking the river.

Here is the link to the cabin rentals we used:

That sounds like fun. My wife loves bed and breakfasts but I am not as keen on eating breakfast in someone else's home. Still, we have had some nice lake side or ocean side views that way.

Sorry I have been MIA. Family is in town and we have been busy, busy, busy! My husband and I are headed down south to Wimberley today. We will be back Sunday. We are staying in a cabin by the lake with a hot tub, etc. Hoping for a relaxing long weekend.
