It's Friday

"It's Friday and I'm ready to jam" - Aaliyah(Back and Forth)
I have to sing that song, every Friday....lol I had plans for the weekend, but most likely will have to cancel, because I am sick. I was taking the children to the Pumpkin patch on Saturday (really Jaree), because the Boys could care less...lol Then Saturday Jariel, Bee, dh, and I were all headed to REaper's REalm Haunted House . I am still going to let the boys go with my brother, but I will have to reschedule the pumpkin patch for next week with Jaree. She's been so attentive to Mommy. She laid in bed with me (at the foot) and kept checking me to see if I was still breathing. God bless her little heart! She is my shadow afterall.

Today is supposed to be scrap night for Jaree and I. I am going to do my absolute best to get better and get some rest so that I can do something with her so she won't be disappointed. She lives for Friday nights now....LOL

My body aches so bad. I am hoping it will pass soon. I have too much to do. I don't have time to be sick....lol. There is so many places I need to go. Like Joann's, Michaels, Archivers, Borders, and my LSS! LOL What's a girl to do?

Today's Challenge:
Join us today/Friday if you blog. Challenge: Tonite, as I write out this challenge to you, I am thinking of Stacy Julian and the excitement she must be feeling. She picks up her new little adopted baby girl tomorrow morning! How exciting for her.. can you just imagine? Here's the challenge!!! Blog about something that has really excited you.. something you were really anticipating perhaps.. blog about it.. share your excitement!!!!!

The purchase of our new home. It's really a big deal for our family. I just can't wait to get in there and start making plans! A house that I could be proud of. Plus girls I finally get to get my own SCRAPBOOK ROOM!!! YAY!!! For the first time I can plant flowers, plant my own garden, decorate to the fullest for Halloween, and Christmas. I have always wanted one of those blow up Frankenstein's for Halloween or the cute Snow Globe for Christmas,with a yard full of animated deer..... I am already planning ahead! Look at me. I can't wait to start buying new furniture, getting decor from my mom. Her house is soooo beautifully decorated. She has a knack for that sort of thing. I have to post a picture of her zebra room! Everthing in it is black and white. Even the photos! That woman is amazing!

Speaking of my mom. Please pray for her as she get's on the road this morning to travel down to Mississippi to bury her brother Clifton. Please pray for a safe destination and a safe departure. I will miss her for the next couple of days. My mom and I talk everyday and I see her as much as I can. Wished I could see her more...

My dad will be home alone this weekend. I will have to make sure he is ok. If I am feeling better by Sunday, i will go by the house and cook him dinner. He is so independent. Does not like to have people waiting on him. Very proud man!

Well, that's all for now....
Dana

Dana--a lot going on with you right now, it sounds like!
I sure hope you get to feeling better, and that you get to have Scrap Night with J. I think it's so cool that she looks forward to that with you on Fridays now!
I pray that your Mom has a safe trip and that is able to handle everything during a sad time for her!
Have a GREAT weekend!!!

I hope that you are able to get some rest and feel better soon.

I'm actually planning on going to a pumpkin patch with my mom tomorrow. I thought it might be a good place to take some fall pictures.

Bummed that you're ill, Dana. Sounds like flu or strep throat or something! Hope you can get some downtime to get well before the end of the weekend. That Jo's sale is something else. Picked up a KI pack - loaded with goodies, and I'm loving that Colorbok range that's exclusive to Jo's - forget the name now - all 40% off.

Take care and get well soon.
