We have critters....




or maybe it's just a cat! I put some really beautiful mums on the front porch because even though it's 90 degrees, the calendar says it's fall. Damn......I'm having to water them every single morning because the heat is hurting them so bad. But what's even worse is some animal has decided that the middle one looks like a nice place to sleep all night. And each morning I come out, it's all pressed down with a few broken pieces. So a friend of mine at work suggested putting some lemons in the pot........the citrus might keep the critter or cat away. we'll see.......

a "I'm not smoking anymore" update............I'm still not smoking. Which is good in a lot of ways. But the bad thing is the weight gain. I'm just not happy about all of that but.........I'm still not smoking!

I meant to post the other day, Sept 25th, to announce that Christmas is 3 months away....like no one was going to figure that one out and needed me to announce it! I just love, love, love the holiday season. I love the decorating, the shopping, cooking, wrapping gifts, being with family, teasing my kids about gift secrets.......just can't wait. I've already started that last one......I have teased Kayla once about a gift I've already bought her! I'm looking over recipes already and trying some out to get ready! I just love the feeling that the holidays bring.....I remember seeing this quote "Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen"......yeah, that's what I love!

later......

I love the Xmas quote...but remember, put the peels in the plants, not a whole lemon. lol

See, even stray animals feel at home at your house! I'm so proud of you not smoking! I gained weight too Honey, and I don't like that either, but I sure feel better not smoking! Bobby got a script for the Chantix, and he's going to start today, and Terri isn't smoking any more either thanks to this new miracle drug!!! Love to all of you...
