Thank you, Dawg. He sure is getting to be a big boy - pretty sure he's going to be taller than me by the time he's 10.

Oh boogers. That would be annoying as heck, MC, and I've been known to have the patience of a saint. Pretty certain the air would turn blue around me too if I went through that!

My gorgeous three year old nephew is as tall as a six year old.

Of course, he doesn't quite act like a six year old at three, but he should be a very good basketball player when he gets to high school!

Since you fly a lot, would you qualify for the express lane?

MC, When I only had two kids, my sister would watch them, and I would go to work with my BIL doing remodeling. When he had a wallpaper job to do, after removing all the old paper, he had a large block of wood with a medium grit of sandpaper wrapped around it. He would go over all the walls with it. Just enough for the paste to have something to grab. Try roughing up just one area large enough for one strip and see if that helps. It sounds like the dry paste is too slippery for the wet paste to cling to.

We have Global Entry and TSA Precheck, but when coming back from an international flight, at least in Atlanta, everyone still has to go through the agents and a body scan if they have a connecting flight. It's always somewhat insulting after we've been breezing through without having to remove shoes and getting cavity-searched!

We're off. Finally. IF we drive straight through we won't be home before 2:00 AM. Why not? We're night owls! :D

Here it is 5:30 a.m. I have been awake for an hour and a half. I just reached for my first cigarette of the day. Two weeks ago, I reached for my first and lit it as I raced for the outhouse as soon as I woke. The Chantix have kicked in full force. Last week was the introductory week of introducing the drug into my system. I mentioned to my daughter yesterday that I had noticed that I was smoking less and less this past week. So I am on my way.

I am halfway through my cigarette and had to put it out. Brings on a hard coughing spell. Not good for the heart.

My goal is to be not smoking at the end of a month of being on the Chantix.

Just got home about half an hour ago. Unpacked the car and put a few things from the cooler into the fridge. Just waiting for the hot water tank to heat the water enough so we don't fully wake when we wash our faces. Then it's off to sleep till about noon...on Thursday! :D

Welcome back. Massachusetts missed you. Get some much needed sleep.
