Sorry I haven't been making too many posts here of late. I've been working extra days as we are short-staffed, and just WAITING for my vacation to begin on September 1st. Every year I take almost all of September off, it's my favourite time of year (autumn) and doesn't tend to get very hot. Besides, it's a pretty time of year if I get out somewhere with my camera. :-)

I'll be staying home as I always do, but keeping busy with friend get togethers, some little projects around the house and an outing or two with my sis Pammie and our cameras. I can't wait for all the sleeping in and rest!

Whatever wicked, evil cold that has been going around for the last few months (blogger buddy Bobbie had it too) got me twice in a couple of months. I'm just now starting to feel a bit better, but I'm sure being run-down doesn't help. My annual vacation always helps to perk me up. :-)

My age seems to be catching up with me too. So far all of my body parts are my own, but in a few weeks I have to get a tooth pulled that is near the front of my mouth (there would be an ugly gap when I smile) and I'll be getting some sort of appliance with a fake tooth on it. Bleh. I always tease my hubby whenever he's going out the door, "do you have all your body parts with you?" LOL He has a hearing aid, glasses and a bottom denture. It appears I am going to be joining the "body parts" club.

The tooth I'm going to be getting pulled is infected and there just isn't anything left to save. I've had to be on antibiotics to keep it under control until I am done work so I have the time to get it pulled and be off work when I have a gap in my smile, until I have the appliance made. I have NEVER been able to stay on antibiotics long enough to do much good, as my digestive system gets totally wrecked within about 4 days. So much so that I was once taken to emergency for it.... it's bad. At any rate, a friend of mine in the U.S. who works at a pharmacy told me to try a product called "Florastor". She has saved me!!!! I got it from my pharmacist and I don't have any more problems staying on antibiotics. Thank God!

I hope you are all doing well and having a good summer. Take good care of each other, we're all we have!

Love Jude
