Yeah, it's Friday!

Well that picture will have to do.  Still can't find the one I want so took Beth's advice and did the google thing. 

Paring down list of  Christmas presents I still have to get.  It's the adults and older grandchildren that are giving me the hardest time.  You say, money or gift cards?  More than likely. Now if I can get "Scrooge" to bring in the tree I'll be more in the spirit.  I'm thinking some granddaughters persuasion may just be in order.
Have to use all weapons at my disposal.  hee hee

Daughters car went to pot.  Nice timing right.  She needs a new engine.  A new car would be nice, but lack of funds and only one working kind of puts the damper on that.  So the engine is the least expensive.  Her wonderful sister has put the money she needs into an account for her.  Jack is trying to get his blazer running decently incase she needs it in the mean time.  It has hiccups quite often.  He's thinking fuel pump and that is in the gas tank on it.  Fun huh?   Seems like everything always needs to be done at the same time. 

Yearly doctors appts. this month so will be going to what Jack calls "the bloodsuchers" for labs next week and then wait and see what the doctors say about them.  Hopefully all will continue to be okay. 

Best get going and see what else I can accomplish today.  Hope your day is a good one.

  1. We've had our tree up since mid November...I'm the usual Scrooge with such matter here but have found getting it done is way better than procrastinating the whole thing until I really hate it. That is bum time with the car having trouble. Ours has an annoying issue that my dad and I are working on...boy am I ready for that to be done. Christmas will be pretty slim pickin's in these parts. Finances are just a lot tighter then they ever have been before but I'm ever thankful that the best things in life can't be purchased!

  2. I love the picture you posted. Very nice even if it came from Google. (Secret - I get lot of mine from there to.) Good luck on your doctor's appointment - hope you get a good report and are good to go for another 25,000 miles.

    This quote has special meaning for me today.

  4. That quote touched me. I want our motley tree from studio attic to come in the house. It's so sparsly limbed it needs lots of fillers! LOL! Good luck with Scrooge! Sorry your daughter has car problems. Winter is the worst to have that.
