Happy Friday!

We’ve finally had a little rain here, and we’re expecting a big storm this weekend. That’s great news since California is suffering the worst drought in recent memory.  However, the rains can bring deadly mudslides, so fingers crossed.

Middle Son began a new job this week, and I’m thrilled for him! He mostly put himself through college while working full-time at a high pressure job in retail. Now he  has his degree and is taking a huge step up the level of success and I’m insanely proud of him. He stuck it out and kept going even when he wanted to give up.

Oh and today, my daughter-in-law (Special K) came to my rescue when I had a computer issue. I emailed her with the problem, she asked me to send her a screen shot, then  gave me the solution. She also has a very high pressure job in the tech industry, but she took the time to help me. Special K rocks!

This weekend I desperately have to work, but I’m taking a break Sunday to go to lunch with a friend. I can’t wait!

What are your weekend plans?

    Congratulations to middle son :)! You have a great family. Proves you raised them right ;).

    Nice Special K! How thoughtful that she took time to help out. Again – great family.

    Glad to hear you’re going out with a friend for lunch. The break will be good for you. You know the saying, all work and no play ;). Go play!

    I’m getting my eyes checked today and birthday shopping on Sat. for DIL. No other real plans.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Way to go, MS! I hope he kicks butt. =o) And yay for the rain. I know that’s been on your mind. Here’s hoping it moistens the ground enough to be helpful but not so much it causes problems. :hugs: As for Special K, many thanks. We can’t have you having computer issues. It’s so great that you have someone you can call to help with that stuff.

    Since they’re predicting rain and then ice storms through to Monday night, we’ve loaded up and we’re staying home. Maybe the bad weather will put a boot in my butt to get some work done. It’s been a slacker week for me. Better yet if they predicted wrong and I still work. Don’t need no ice here. Bleh.

    It just really makes us feel good when we see our kids (any age) succeed like we know they can.

    It is also so helpful to have a female computer person to go to. Guys talk such a different computer language (no real surprise) then we do and they don’t get what the issue is when we females have tech problems.

    Everyone in my house this week has had some form of sinus, head cold, cough or ear infection. So hopefully we will be able to take this weekend to just get better.

    Yeah, been watching the rain news. Y’all need it as much as we do but dang…at what price? Yay for MS! He’s gonna rock and Special K is made of awesomesauce! Enjoy lunch!

    Only and Baseball Boy close on their house this afternoon. Tomorrow, Uncle Awesome is going to take care of a few small things–fix toilets, calk tub, etc.–while Only and I paint the guestroom/office (it’s Pepto-pink at the moment 8-O ) and the trim in soon-to-be Magic Bean’s room. I’ll also be bringing Lawyer Guy home from the hospital and getting him settled. We’re due ice on Sunday so have to hustle to get everything done to stay in warm and dry!

    Have a great weekend, witches!

    Viki, your comment got sent to moderation for some reason. So weird! But I rescued you :-)

    Thank you on my family. They are a great bunch, probably more in spite of me than because of me, LOL!

    Hope your eye check goes well and you have success in shopping!

    B.E., you must be longing for Spring! But either way, butt in the chair and work — I’m talking to you and me both here :-)

    The drought is pretty serious here so I’m grateful for the rain.

    Even happier that I figured out a key component of my book this morning, and suddenly, I engaged with my characters. Now they feel real.

    Happy writing to both of us!

    Kat, sending healing wishes your way! So sorry all of you are sick.

    Man you hit it on Middle Son. I knew he could do this 100% :-)

    And Special K is our girl. We waited a long time for a girl, now we Special K, plus Middle Son and BLB have amazing girlfriends.

    Get well soon!

    Silver, Huge Congrats to Only and Baseball Boy! This has to be the most exciting year ever for them.

    If my office was pepto bismo pink, I’d be repainting too!

    Hope all goes well getting LG home and settled. So glad he’s doing better now!
