Whoa gorgeous, how are you doing today? How was your week? Today turned out to be a pretty hectic day — went to the hospital bright and early at 7 a.m. for my mother’s scheduled colonoscopy. It’s her first and she’s been putting it off, so I’m proud of her. Cross your fingers that all those pipes are in working order. I plan to relax this weekend, maybe work on the blog a bit. I’m working on adding two new sections: As seen on… and Daily reads, so look for those next week (you just might make my list of the daily blogs I read). Or, hey, give me some suggestions of your own.
Oh, and I’ve just received another assignment from TheFrisky, so look for it next week! Oh, it’ll be a typical Melissa piece, that’s for sure.
