New Construction in Our Neighborhood

We've been observing a new hotel being built just two buildings down from us. I have to say they are putting it up very quickly.

One of the construction workers stopped by the office and said they should be finished this October.

Have you ever heard of Value Place? I sure haven't till today.

I'll post some photos this week of all the construction in our neighborhood.

Are you experiencing any new building in your neck of the woods?

Latest News - Toby and Me


Marcus was vacuuming and Toby was running throughout our house. Marcus heard Toby yelping in pain, he had broken his leg, jumping off Marcus' bed!

When Marcus called us we were in a mandatory company meeting. Marcus was very upset but he was still able to calm the dog till we got home.

We then took him to Craig Road Animal Hospital, in North Las Vegas. Dr. Chambers was very sympathetic and could tell that our whole family was upset. They took X-rays and verified that he broke it. He's now on pain meds, anti-inflammatory and has a bandage.

This happened on Wednesday so you can only imagine how busy we have been nursing the dog, dealing with every one's emotions and my latest diagnosis. (later details on that)

He seems to be doing much better..actually barking at our maintenance person and some of the customers.

Menu Plan Monday - June 8, 209



I had a terrible migraine yesterday so I stayed in bed. Today, I'm suffering from spasms. The good thing is that it's been 3 months since my last one. I used to suffer from 2-3 migraines a month.

We're ready for the digital change on Friday, June 12. The hubby and I purchased a digital converter box for the bedroom TV. Two weeks ago we became satellite subscribers.

Now, onto the menu! Thank yous to Organizing Junkie for hosting MPM.
