T.G.I.F.

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you all had a good week. Ours was good. Nothing exciting, but nothing bad either, so I’ll take it!

Weekend plans? We are getting together at Paul and Joys for a much-needed and long over due visit. Sadly, Sue is on call so we will miss her! ūüė¶ The kids will be able to be outside, I think. I heard it’s supposed to be at least 50 degrees.

As I am writing this, it’s actually Thursday, late evening. We are running out the door to Bailey’s 1st choir concert! He’s all dressed up, looking handsome. ūüôā

How was your week? Any weekend plans?

It’s the WEEKEND!!!

Whew. What a week! Josh came down with some sort of plague on Monday evening, and he’s been down with it (and the fevers that went with it) all week. Poor kid was sick on Thanksgiving, although he gave dinner a good try. But he was glassy-eyed and coughing though it all. The food did help make him feel better, although he’s absolutely convinced that it was the wine (we have alcohol-free, and he tasted it)

This weekend, we might do some shopping. Steve needs a new computer, so we’re going to check out what’s available. I’m also looking for a new one, but thanks to a tooth that broke, I won’t be getting one for a while. The money for my computer went to the crown. *sigh*

What about you guys? How was your week? Did you brave the Black Friday crowds? I have more than one friend who was out all night long last night. I don’t do Black Friday. Although I might consider it if I was going with friends, and had a list of stuff to get. What are your plans for the weekend?

Question of the Day

So we discussed sexy songs a while back. Now tell me, what songs do you consider “sensual” or “sultry”? ‘Cause I think there’s a difference.

Things Are A Little Slow

Hey, everyone. I wanted to pop in and tell you all that things are going to be a little weird around here for a while.

Joy is a little under the weather, and I’m more than a little insane with the new job. So we’ll try and post when we can. I’ll try and get something up here as often as possible.

Meanwhile, I’d like to ask a favor… Please leave a message here for Joy. Something funny, light, fun. We all have times in our lives when we can use a little silliness, and this might be one of those times for her. So go to it…
