This is my handsome husband. He got a haircut today,too. It's basically a mullet, but he'll tell you it's a catfish. It's very short in the front and very long in the back. He is growing his hair to donate to "Locks of Love". You have to have hair at least 10 inches long to donate. His is 6 inches. So only 4 to go. He said once it's long enough, he's cutting it, donating it, and then starting all over again.

Now for my "Great" news. I went to the doctor today and he has taken me off of one of my diabetes pills (Actos, the one that caused me to gain weight) and one dose of Amaryl. He checked out my glucose readings and was very impressed. And he said if my morning reading stays below 120 for the next 30 days I will totally come off of the Amaryl, too. So that will only leave the Metformin. And I don't have to go back to see him for 3 months. I am still on my blood pressure medication, plus iron pills and B vitamins. But hey....if I keep going the way I'm going, maybe the next time I see the doctor, he'll take me off of something else. I was so thrilled about being taken off those meds and now hopefully I can start taking the weight back off. Everyone have a great night. I know I am.

Kinda hard to see the 4 different pages here....the first has dog collars, the second has dog sayings, the third has dog bones and the 4th which is really hard to see says "Cats Rule". I love them all.
Tons of different colors and sizes of paper.
Different dog themed goodies....who would have thought there was so much out there.
Lots of other goodies to use. I don't know where to begin. Thanks, again, Cecile, you are the bomb.

1. Where was I ten years ago?
Let me see, I was living next door to where I live now. My husband and I had a mobile home on the lot next door to my father-in-law whose house we now live in. I was probably in the kitchen working on crafts for the annual craft fairs we have here. Missy and I used to be pretty crafty back in the day LOL.
2. What was on my to do list today?
Going to work was the main thing. Delivering Andi's gift that she won for donating to my Diabetes walk was a must today. I also should have gone to Walmart to pick up a prescription but that won't happen until tomorrow. That was pretty much it.
3. What would I do if I were a billionaire?
I'm not sure I can answer that. I probably wouldn't be the person that I am today. I'd probably do drugs or drink too much, sleep around and have bad rumours and stories told about in the tabloids, with some trashy photos.
4. Five places I've lived.
Well I was born in Massachusetts and spent most of my formative years residing in Haverhill. Then I moved to Orlando, Florida with my parents when I was 17. I then moved to Davenport, FL with my first husband. 10 years later I lived in Eloise, FL with my wonderful 2nd husband (and we still live there). I lived in Cleveland, Ohio one summer when I worked for the Cleveland Indians. That's pretty much it.
5. Bad Habits.
Number one is probably spending too much money on kids and grandkids. But hey, you can't take it with you and I'm not a billionaire. Another bad habit I have is biting my fingernails. I've been doing really good about not biting lately, but I still get the urge. The bad habit I have that my husband hates is me going around all the time complaining about how fat I am.......like he can do something about it. I think that's it. If anyone who knows me can think of anymore that I might have....let me know.
Now comes the fun part......picking 5 people to tag. Here goes......Cecile, Hut (Simple Man), Grannie Annie, Sue and Andi. Have fun you guys.

Five Guys Burgers & Fries....
This is how their french fries start out. And they have a sign hanging in the dining area that lets you know where the potatoes come from. Today's potatoes were from Pasco, Washington.
And here's what's left of our fries. The burgers were so good, we just wolfed them down. Notice the paper bag that the fries are on. That's how all the orders go out.

No the picture isn't upside down. The kitties are wrestling at the bottom of the stairs.
All pooped out from their kitty games.
PS. I did get to donate blood today. Yeah for the iron pills that made it possible. If you can, please donate.
Update: Well we have a boy and a girl. Oscar,of course, is the girl and Mayer is the boy. Everything showed up really clear today LOL!
Today is Blood Donation day at State Farm. Hopefully I can donate today. Usually my iron is too low and I can't donate. But I have been on iron pills for awhile now, so hopefully today I can. I am a big advocate for donating blood and I get upset when I can't. So hopefully this will get you to think about donating. It's a great service to everyone and hopefully none of us will ever need to use donated blood. Have a wonderful day.

This is Oscar on the couch. This is a very vocal cat.This is Mayer just chillin'. Mayer is the quieter of the two.
At the top of my blog you will notice 2 "I Love Your Blog" logos. I'm sure you've seen quite a few of these lately. My wonderful sister in law Missy designed them and awarded them to her fave bloggers. And I just happened to be one. Thanks, Missy. Another one of her fave bloggers is my dear friend and animal lover, Cecile. Cecile also awarded me one. Thanks, Cecile.So I chose the blue one from Missy and the pink one from Cecile. We are supposed to award our favorite bloggers with them also. So many of you will get duplicates. Here's my list:
SIMPLE MAN (my husband)
You guys are the greatest. Make sure to "grab" your award...either color. Keep on blogging!

Yeah Andi, you won the little butterfly goody cup for making a donation to my cause. Just email me and let me know where and when to deliver it (remember that Tues. and Wed. I'll still be in Tampa). Thanks to everyone who purchased a bracelet or made a donation. You are ALL winners in my book. I wouldn't be where I'm at donation wise without all you wonderful people out there. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart. Hut did the honors of drawing the name out of the hat. Just a quick note about my labor day. We visited my son Wade and his fiance Christina. Wade's friend Tony, his wife Amber and their 3 children also came. A few other's were invited but didn't show. All I can say is it was their loss. We all brought something so it was like a pot luck. I brought hambergers, potato chips, buns, potato salad, soda and some condiments (that's what Mom's are for). Christina made coconut cupcakes (YUM!)and baked beans. Wade marinade some boneless chicken breast and cooked some hotdogs. Amber and Tony brought this BEST macaroni and cheese I have ever eaten in my whole life. Plus they brought apple slices and grapes with some kind of fluffy dip that was amazing. We all ate until we were stuffed. And believe it or not, there was enough left over, so everyone got to take something home with them. We had a great time. Unfortunately, my other son Scott, had to work. I hope everyone had a wonderful, safe, filling Labor Day. Back to the old grind tomorrow.
