Good morning, guys.

Today is the first full day of school. My parents will also be returning and taking their dogs home. We will finally have an atmosphere of normality, for us at least, in our schedules. I've been so stressed-out.

Good morning, guys,

The 3 of us just spent a week down in St. Pete/Clearwater Beach to celebrate my wife's birthday. We got some sun and pampered ourselves.

No sooner were we back in the car last night though and I get a call that my mom is on her way to the hospital for a nose bleed that wouldn't stop. I'm putting the rest in the F! thread.

First morning back with my wife sleeping in the bed after her trip to NY. I slept like shit, both dogs are in and out of the bed all night but with the wife back, they tend to bump into me constantly.

Good morning, guys.

Yeah, nothing quite like getting to sleep in your own bed.

The summer stretches on. We seem to be getting all of the rain that we missed in June. The garden is growing, and my carolina reapers are turning.

Good morning,

I snore and we have a cat so I sleep in the spare bedroom. It's good to be able to stretch out - and close the door. Meanwhile, my wife is getting walked on and meowed at to roll over or lift the covers half the night while I'd probably sleep right through it.

Anyway, today is the first day of band camp so I got Joe out the door at 7:45 - which IMO is a downright miracle. Even better is that I got his birthday present early - a shiny new red lawnmower. To add to the surprise I'm going to insist he play with it in the back yard this afternoon.

Seriously, I did the front with the old mower which has a blown drivetrain so I got my exercise this morning - and I don't mean just lifting it into the shopping cart because I (with my pear shaped body, graying beard and reading glasses) had help. In addition, I flashed my veteran's card and got $50 knocked off the price.

Morning is almost over. Cooler here so far today.

I might have a follow-up to a PT job I interviewed for yesterday. Though I really thought he offered me the job but in responding telling him I would take it, he said I was the top candidate and no job offer as of yet.

It would be nice to have a new project and the extra money. This place sells wine in the great LA area, I would work on their web presence and try to expand sales. Guy seemed decent and not too much younger than me.

Good morning, guys.

Not much going on here. My parents picked-up their aging lab yesterday. We've had her here for most of two weeks and may have to watch her again in a couple days. She's been a major source of stress lately (difficulty climbing two or three steps and getting-up off of the floor), so I'm not looking forward to keeping her again.

Good morning,

Is the lab a good dog otherwise? Have they taken it to the vet recently? It almost seems cruel to have her not only suffer but to foist her on other people.

Good morning. The North East heat wave is over! Rough 7-10 days.



As for Lab dogs, I just don't get them. Talk about dogs that get old and expensive fast.
