Hiya Christi,
Thanks for the note awhile back.
Sorry I haven't answered until now.
So how are you doing??? Looks like you have had your hands full
the past few months.
Hope you dad is settled in his new place, and you and your mom can rest a bit from all the activity.
Been working on my back walkway and hope to finish it this weekend.
Then I will have to look for some more projects to do LOL.

Things are a lot quieter around our house now that my daughter is attending classes at the local community college. I still help her with a couple classes at home in the evenings, but things are a lot different around here lately.
My older cat, Kitty has not been well the past week. He has an eye infection. so took him to the vet and got some meds for him. He is not as lively as he usually is these days. Sleeps alot. Hoping he gets better soon.

Oh and by the way, the concert we attended was great. Enjoyed being at the fair too, My only beef was that Amy Grant sangs some songs I didn't know and was singing more secular songs that I wasn't thrilled with.
I enjoyed Michael W. Smith alot though! His part was very worshipful.

Anyways, just checking in on you. Hope you have been able to keep up with your exercising and nutrition routine through all the activity you have been involved in. People keep reminding me that even 10 minutes of exercise at a time helps!

Take care my friend and have a great weekend!

Love,
Sue emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hope with that move your Dad gets the best care, I mean he deserves it! We had a cold front barrel it's way through and dropped the temps down low but today's supposed to spark a warming trend. Hoping when the weather decides what it's doing, I'll feel better. Unfortunately this "respiratory" problem hits everytime the weather does this. So it's going to be a long fall & winter.
Take care and have a great week.
