Baxter has a cut on his ear that I have a hard time keeping a bandage on. He is really tolerant of me when I am playing nurse with his ear. LOL He goes back to the Vet this next month to have it looked at along with his annual shots.

I have the day off tomorrow so I will be playing catch up on housework. Tony is off for the week. He is working on the Van today.

The weather man says we have a chance of snow this next week. I am anxiously looking forward to more of it. Everyone at work calls me "crazy" for wanting more snow...LOL

I hope everyone has a Great Week !!!!

Woke up to temperatures of 14 below 0 this morning. Brrrrr... Baxter and I got out and braved the cold to go to the Post Office and Store. Bet the kids are thankful for Christmas break so they weren't standing out in that cold waiting on the school bus.

I go back to the Doctor today and hopefully get released to return to work tomorrow. I only have to work a few days this week with the Holiday here. Tony starts his two weeks off for the Holidays tomorrow.

Wishing everyone has a Happy Holiday !!!!

Baxter was cold....hahahahaha... I can't believe he let us put that blanket on him and actually sat still long enough for the picture to be taken.

We spent the day running all over Saint Louis and I am wore out.

I hope everyone is having a Great Weekend.

Almost all of the snow is melted off from these warmer temperatures we have had overnight. We are suppose to get another winter mix before Christmas. I sure hope so. I love the snow on the ground.
I am bored being stuck at home with my injured back. Baxter loves it because he doesn't have to go into the cage for the day.
I go back to the doctor on Monday and start some therapy on Tuesday. Although I go back to work on Tuesday. I am looking forward to that going back to work part...LOL
I miss my friends from work although they call me everyday. I have gotten in touch with some of my friends from Jonesboro at the University also this past week. We kept in touch with emails but I finally found their phone numbers so I can call them now also.
Wish I was going to be home for Christmas but I have to work the weekend after it so that makes it hard to make it to Arkansas and back in that short of a time. I will wait until I go down for my psychiatrist appointment and spend a few days with my family then.
Beth wrote in her blog that the twins are doing well...http://fainscamp.blogspot.com/ I still find it unreal that we are going to have a set of twins in the family. I am looking forward to it though.

When I got home from work yesterday, Baxter and I decided it was time to play in the winter wonderland that was provided for us. Was a nice break on my nerves from having to drive in it for the first half of this week. He sure ran all over the place kicking up the snow with his paws, sliding all across the yard. Hahaha a few times he lost his footing and when he tried to get started again all he did was run in one place.

I definitely love where I live. I love the Winter Season and all that comes along with it. Everyone around me here is groaning and moaning about the precipitation but not me !!!!

Monday when the Hospital told me I was going to have to go to Barnes Care West (which is about 20 miles away) I sorta freaked out because the roads were icy and I called Tony and he just took off work and drove me over there. One thing I can count on is Tony. He takes good care of me. Driving in that stuff to work was one thing but getting out on the interstate in all that traffic was another story...

I don't go back to work until next Tuesday, so I am going to enjoy my mini vacation this week.

Waking up to the first dusting of snow for the season this morning was nice. The snow is still falling as I type. Although I have to go grocery shopping in a little while in it. The roads are just wet so it won't be so bad.
I am catching up on laundry and Tony is suppose to be watching the Rams football game but is taking a nap in front of the T.V. instead...hahahaha
Grabbed a few pics of the snow while Baxter was outside playing and chasing a few squirrels. He never gets close enough to actually catch one of them but he sure runs them back up the trees all the time.

I still have good intentions to try and write on this everyday although up until now it seems that it will just be a weekly event.. hahaha

This is a wierd week for working I work Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Tony and I have decided to have our Thanksgiving dinner this Saturday. We will go out to his Son's house for a little while on Thursday. I don't mind going somewhere for Thanksgiving Dinner just the fact that I don't have any leftovers to munch on is my problem. I like those leftovers from the fridge.

We are installing new smoke detectors this evening. Over the past few weeks we have had fire trucks visit the neighborhood here several times. Two of those visits were houses right next to us. The smoke detectors that are up are many years old and in need of replacement.

C C C Cold this morning

It was 26 when I left for work. Brrrrr. Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week. Where has this year gone? I keep really busy with the housekeeping and sitting at work. The days just fly by. We had snow showers on Saturday morning. Not much but was pretty to look at. Preview of the up and coming weather.. hahahaha

Tomorrow is the last day to smoke at work. They have told employee's that they can go to their cars, but not management. There are going to be a lot of grumpy employee's for awhile...

I am beginning to think I really don't have any days off...hahahaha I am always catching up on something on those days, today it is the laundry.
Baxter is whining at the front window as the squirrels are scurrying all over the place collecting food for the winter. When the wind blows the leaves he whines really loud, I haven't quite figured out what that one means yet. Although at this time last year he was just a pup so it might be that this is something new and different for him.
As you can see from the picture, the yard needs raked again. This weekend will be a busy time outdoors for Tony and I even though we have a chance of snow flurries this Saturday. Personally I am looking forward to some snow. Guess that is the one thing I miss the most from when I lived in Chicago. I am anxious to see how Baxter reacts to the snow.

I have decided

To add on a third blog. Sharon's Village is on a mailing list and I don't want to write on it everyday and flood email boxes. Coming out of depression is not one I write on everyday. This will be my everyday blog site, more like a journal.

I am off work today and it will be my last day off during the week over the next several weeks. I am going to do some extra patient sitting on my days off. Extra money for the Holidays that are coming up. We are still hoping to get to go home sometime in December.

Fall is back in the air today. For the past week, we have had exceptionally warm weather but with this front coming through, our highs are suppose to go back into the mid 40's during the days.

I have plenty here at home to keep me busy today. All the Halloween decorations have to be put up and start decorating for Thanksgiving. Still haven't decided on if I will decorate for Christmas as I have a feeling Baxter will try and take down the Christmas Tree once I get it up. He is like a two year old, into everything.
