"THANK YOU" so much Grams and Mary for this adorable Award. Again, I do appreciate it very much and appreciate you thinking of me.

I sure hope I haven't fogotten any Awards that I am suppose to acknowledge. If I have, please know that I didn't do it on purpose, and be sure to let me know about the Award. Sometimes life just takes over and as I'm getting older, I find it hard to remember things. I have to write things down just to remember what to blog about. LOL. Am I the only one that does that kind of thing? I sure hope not. LOL. I've had so many things to share with you today, I feel as if I've put in a 40-hour week. LOL. Just a little humor there yall.
My DH left out going to Salt Lake City yesterday morning. The last time I talked to him last night was around 11:30p.m. and he was just getting into Wyoming. He was going to drive down to Wamsutter, WY, and then let his Uncle take it on into Salt Lake City. Everything is going good so far for them and the weather seems to be co-operating with them. So, hopefully, they will get to come in on early Wednesday morning and stay till noon on Wednesday. Hopefully they will get home sooner than last Wednesday morning. After my DH left around 5:00a.m. yesterday morning, I finished the pot of coffee I had made for me and him. With both of us drinking coffee, we usally get about 2 cups a piece from the pot. Now we don't drink out of your normal coffee mugs or cups. He has a 30 ounce cup that he got at a truck stop and I have a 16 ounce cup that I got from a truck stop when I was out with him one time. Well, needless to say, 2 of my cups isn't going to do it for me, so I made another pot of coffee. I had 2 of my cups from it and when the girls left for Church, I ate my bowl of Corn Flakes and layed back down. I fell asleep and woke back up around 12:30p.m. I still had 2 cups left, so I finished drinking the rest of the coffee. I guess that's why I'm still awake now. LOL. Too much coffee for me yesterday. I haven't made any just yet, but I will before too long tho. I've got to have my coffee fix or else I get grouchy. LOL. The girls ate lunch at Church because their Wednesday night group, Kid's for Christ, was going to a Nursing Home in Lake City, AR, to deliver some Valentine Card's to the elderly there. They had been working on the cards in class on Wednesday nights. They got home around 3:00p.m. and said they had a good time. After they got home, I told them it was time to clean their bedrooms really good. I didn't have any trouble out of them doing it this time. LOL. Sometimes I do and have to stay on them till their rooms are clean. They both did a great job and I am very proud of them. I had told my DH about it once last night when I was talking to him, and he told me to tell the girls he was proud of them also. I told them when they were done to keep it clean because their Daddy was going to look at it when he gets home early Wednesday morning. So, hopefully they will. They also took out the trash and put the big garbage can by the road. Today is garbage pick-up here in our town. I had heated up those Cheeseburgers and Hot Dogs that my DH had cooked for us on Saturday afternoon. That is what we had for our supper last night. There is still enough for me and the girls to eat the rest of them tonight for our supper. I am "THANKFUL" for not having to do alot of cooking. LOL. But I do love it when my DH cooks out on the grill for us. After they had their supper, they got their baths and put their pajama's on.
I was watching t.v. last night and I was watching the Extreme Home Makeover. Did any of you watch it? I tell ya, it was so heart warming and touching. There was a guy who lives in Kansas and had served in the Marines over in Iraq. He lost one of his legs and he is divorced and is raising 4 kids himself. The Makeover Team came and built them a new home that was Handicapped Accessible. It was beautiful. Anyway, I could actually tell that this Marine, was very "THANKFUL" for his new home. You hardly ever see a man cry and if you do see a man cry, it's not really crying like us ladies do. This guy was crying yall. Oh my goodness, it touched my heart so and I had big old tears in my eyes for him and his happiness. I don't know why I watch shows like that because I know it's going to make me all teary-eyed, but I can't help myself from watching shows like that. Maybe it's a hormonal thing I'm going thru. LOL. My DH tells me from time to time that he thinks I'm going thru the change of life. I am like LOL, yeah right, how would you know? LOL. You are not doctor. But then he says he knows because his Mother went thru it and he say's I have the same symptoms. Oh well, leave it to Dr. DH, and he will make me all better. LOL. If only men could experience some of the pains and aches and go thru the things we have to go thru. Wouldn' t that be sight to see? LOL. I'm not downing my DH yall, we joke around with each other all the time.
Well, I guess I've about posted enough for this Monday. I think I will go lay back down and see if I can get me a nap before my alarm goes off at 4:30a.m. I will get back up and fix me a pot of coffee then. Take care my friends and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.
LOVE & HUGS,
