Good morning, Buddies!

I'm so sorry you're both having such problems with the board, Josie and Ruthie.  It's working a little better for me when I use IE than when I use Firefox.  I don't know if you have the option to try to get to the board using IE, but it might be worth a try.  I got another email yesterday letting us know that they're aware of the problems and working hard to fix them.  This has been frustrating for everyone I guess.  Meantime, thank you so much for hanging in for as long as you have.  ((((HUGS))))

So, what are your plans for today?  I have to meet a student who missed his final exam.  I also have to post all of my grades.  After that, I'm finished!  Wooo hoooo!  I got a bunch of decorating done yesterday, and I'm going to finish today.  It really looks pretty.  Other than that, I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing.  Something Christmasy I'm sure.

Have a wonderful day, Buddies!

HI Buddies.   Karen:  I don't know what firefox or IE is and honestly if I have to go back to college to take a computer class just to cope with ivillage, so NOT going to do that.    My late hubby did all the computer stuff and I have no desire to learn new things just to deal with ivlllage.   I appreciate you suggesting that but to me it is all Greek.

Karen:  glad you got a tree the other day at a better price.

Ruthie: how did your hair cut turn out?   How is the packing doing?

Meeting a friend for lunch that has been a challenge to keep in my life as she has made promises that never come true, weeks go by then she pounces on me texting asking where I am when she is the one who was suppose to come up here to see me or call or whatever.   Trying to hang in there with her as she has had health issues and might be going on some type of medical leave for a few years and with her husband working day turn she would be another possibility to grab lunch with or go shopping and that is a plus in my book.   

Last night had another 2 for 1 breakfast coupon at Bob's, then we went to walmart where I stocked up on frozen entrees and pizza.   Today after lunch hitting the other grocery and need some canned soups and other stuff so I hopefully will be stocked up with major stuff so I can stay away from grocery stores over the holiday and if I need milk just go to the local grocery store.

Having Rudi in my bed = I am so tired anf feel hungover.    She starts climbing over me or licking my face 3 hrs into the night so I get up and we go out and potty, takes me awhile to fall back asleep then this morning she was walking around 4 corners of queen bed so we get up and she did poop outside, alas I was in such a deep sleep.   Praying to God He wakes me up as even hubby use to be amazed how deep of a sleep I could be in at times.   But hanging in there with Rudi and hopefully we won't be shoveling our way thru snow drifts at midnight!     Didn't look yet today but yesterday her rash looked better.  My friend's mother took her dachshund to the same Vet, has similar skin issues and she was told dog is allergic to fleas and give Avon skin so soft.   I was given many possibilities of causes but never that one.

Waving Hi to Carol too.   love,  Josie

Josie - I don't think I'm cut out to be a dog owner. I'm glad Rudi has you to love her. I've heard great things about skin-so-soft from my MIL - a dog lover. She used it on her dogs - and her kids! LOL ((((HUGS)))) - Karen

Ruthie - Your Christmas party sounds like so much fun! I hope you have a great time. Did you bowl any strikes? Get any good loot? ;) I'll be praying for you and your parents during the move. I hope it goes more smoothly than you ever expected. ((((HUGS)))) - Karen
