Burrrr!!!! I think someone has left the Freezer Door Open around here. Good Sunday Morning everyone. I hope that everyone remembered to set their Clocks back an hour before going to bed last night. It is another cold day here in the South. We finally got some Rain last week. One day the Rain was a chilly rain as well. If the temperatures had been down near freezing, it might have been something else that fell. After the rain, we had a cold front to come thru and it's been cold since. I've had my Central heat going as well as my pad heater in the hall. The last couple of nights we have been under a freeze warning. It was 30 degrees here when I got up earlier. I think this weeks weather is going to be another one of those roller coaster rides. It starts out chilly and then warms back up into the 70's. Only in Arkansas. LOL.

I apologize for not posting last Sunday, but I was just so tired and felt bad and had some chores to do. Seems like a Woman's work is never done huh? I know mine isn't. Just wish the cleaning lady would show up like she is supposed to. LOL.

The last couple of weeks has had us going to some Basketball games to watch the girls cheer. This week is going to be busy as well. They have games on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday nights to cheer at. It's a good thing they are all home games. They done really good on their "THRILLER" Dance they did a couple fo weeks ago. I'm hoping they will go it again soon so other people will be able to see it. Since Basketball is in full swing now, they are not going to Gym Classes on Tuesdays anymore. But still with all the games, they are staying busy and keeping us on the go some as well.

Well now that Halloween is finally over, it's time to think about Thanksgiving. I'm not sure yet what we will be doing. I may just fix dinner here at the house for me and hubby and the girls. I think it would be nice for a change for the 4 of us just to have a Thanksgiving meal by ourselves. Do you have any big plans for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday? We usually put our Christmas Tree up Thanksgiving weekend as well. I'm so not looking forward to Christmas this year. Not even sure if the girls will be able to have a good Christmas or not. They do understand tho that times are really hard on us, but maybe we will be able to get them a little something. Last Christmas we went all out and got them their own Laptop and a new Cell Phone for Christmas along with some other little things. But last years finances were in much better shape than this year will be. I guess as long as we are all healthy, have a roof over our heads, and food on the table, that will be a good Christmas. Even tho I like Christmas, it just really stresses me out and makes me not to want to even put a tree up sometimes. If it wasn't for the girls, I wouldn't even put one up. And since they have gotten older and quit believing in Santa Claus, it has taken alot of the fun out of it for me as well.

Good morning Karen! We are having some weird weather for sure. I hope this afternoon is as nice as yesterday's was.

It's going to be a small Christmas at my house too. After nearly a $11,000 repair bill on the truck there's not much left. I am thankfull for my many blessing and am going to not worry so much about gifts, just what its really about....Christ.

I hope you have a great day and a good week. Take care,

I wouldn't worry about having no funds for gifts for the girls...they do need to realize that when times are rough, there is no extra cash and in their adult life it'll be the same for them at's good for them to understand. And less stressful for you both as parents.

I love the quiet Thanksgivings now that our kids are grown and have left home. When they were small, and for a while Irene with Clint and folks would have the huge Thanksgiving dinner for nearly 30 people each and every year...of course we all chipped in with the cooking of things...transporting it to their house and all...then, helping them once we arrived there for Thanksgiving...but, the quiet times are something to cherish too. And sit back and enjoy just the two of us together with memories of days past.

There is good in both I guess.
