Good Morning: Friday, 11/17

  1. Hey everyone! It's Friday, yes indeedy doody. I'm still up (1:20 a.m.); worked until 11:30 pm and just haven't relaxed enough to fall asleep yet so I thought I'd start the morning thread.

    1st and foremost, Happy Birthday Mi'Shelle aka Fun2Care! Hope you have a wonderful day.

    Netters--I ended up taking your advice and got a gift certificate for my GF for a massage.

    g'day from "down under!"
    happy birthday mi'shelle! enjoy your special day!
    hi suzy, hope you're able to get some sleep! nothing worse than being unable to sleep.
    it's early evening, friday, here in oz. my friday's been a quiet one. nothing too special to report. dh spent a more comfortable day today. i'm "running away" to a scrapbooking workshop tonight! lol it'll be good to get away from the house and mingle with the other ladies while 'scrapping.'
    ds phoned early this morning. he'd been placed 'online' in readiness to be deployed to tonga. the natives have gone on rampage over in that pacific island nation and there's riots, pillaging, violence, total chaos. our government were preparing to send troops there at the request of the tongan government. the role of our troops would be more a peacekeeping one, so that's not too bad. we'd prefer he not be deployed anywhere! but at least somewhere like that is "better" than iraq or afghanistan. anyway....... here's hoping things settle down and our troops don't need to go there. australia really has become the policeman of the pacific! *sigh*
    did i tell you we've had rain!!!???!!!! glorious life giving rain!!!! not enough to break the drought, but rain nonetheless. in the high country they had snow! snow in november in australia!!!! unheard of! it's summer in two weeks time! crazy weather!
    ok, the meatloaf's cooked and the vegetables are almost ready! it's tea time! :-)
    take care all and stay safe and well.

    Mornin' y'all!

    Thanks sooooo much to everyone!

    No school today, just studying, and visiting Kaylee's school for a lil' bit. She has a book parade today at school in which she is participating in. She needed overalls and boots, and she'll wear Kirsten's cowgirl hat. I'll take some pics and post them later if I remember.

    I'm up before 5 AM on a day that I don't even have to go to school on, and on my birthday.....good grief. :chuckle

    Anyway....y'all have a great day!
