I hope your kitty shows up soon. I'm thinking of you.

Laugh of the day..... I have ordered another Santa Sack! Yep....out of control! See you back here later today happy Thursday PBR
OK, you talked me into it. I just ordered the last one.

Ummmm, the rest of your bonus would have been a nice gesture. Especially if it came from his own pocket!

My thoughts exactly. No reason I should be penalized and get a cut in my bonus because he didn't work hard enough and bring in more business for the firm.

Oh well, it is what it is. Hopefully, I won't have that much longer to work here.

It's been pretty quiet today even though his arbitration was cancelled and his mediation tomorrow was cancelled. Sigh! He did go out shopping a little bit this afternoon, so it was good. Only 35 more minutes till time to go.

Not sure if I said anything, but I'm donating some furniture to the family that the firm is adopting this year and I have to get the 3 pieces cleaned out. I did some last night and want to finish the rest tonight even though now they are not coming to pick it all up until Monday after work. Would anyone like to guess how many unopened SU Scrappin Kits I have.

Hey Maggie!

Did you know you had all those unopened kits before you started cleaning out the furniture?

Reminds me of when a friend convinced me to join Club Scrap. Talk about being overwhelmed by paper and product. I got a box once a month. So much stuff I haven't used yet and I cancelled the club years ago. The same friend is in a monthly bracelet club. I am not joining. I repeat... Not joining. Please hold me accountable. LOL

LOL!! Yes, kinda, I knew I had a bunch, but tend to forget how many. I want to use them to make cards, but haven't had a chance to do that. You can make about 60 cards from one kit. I thought about selling them on E-Bay, but the ones that are on there are not selling for much.

I think they were down because they were fixing the site and getting the virus off of it so we could come back and post.

Phone or address?

I have the address list that Maggie sent out a while ago. I think the only phone #'s I have are yours, Maggie and Brenda from scrapfest. They are still in my phone.

Good morning! Brandy, I wondered where you were the other day. Then I found out that the site was down...made sense. Not that you have to be here every day but it seemed odd to me and plus I missed you.

Nancy.. Fun we were posting at the same time that eve. Are you one or two hours ahead of me time wise? We never change our clocks here so I never know what time it is elsewhere. Lol Except I do know NY and CA time due to family living there.

Maggie how are things? I hope you enjoy your weekend. Any sign of your kitty?

I will be rolling cut out cookies today. Family arrives at 1:00 to help. Also they will bring their dough to make their cookies. We use the board and cookie cutters that was my Grandma's. (My dad's mom. She's been gone since the early 1970's) She loved to cook and bake. Today we roll and cut and think of her tomorrow I hope to be dipping pretzels and making my press cookies. I have a cookie exchange at work on Wed. Got to have some ready by then.

Hope to check in later. Have a good day.

Good morning!

Brenda, I think we are an hour apart now, time wise. I think! During Scrapfest registration, did you have to register at 5am? Which was 2 hrs difference but now we changed the clocks back 1 hr so we must be an hour different now.

Brandy, I sent that address list but it is out dated! We are missing Sharon and Joyce and still have some former members on there.

I missed you guys 2. i know its early but can we meet kelly in san antonio in july? dont know what we'll do while she's @ convention tho. i Wanna get together again it was so much fun. just think no Denver for Brenda !!!!!
I have friend who got his heart broke and hes talking about getting more accomplished without your dreams. I don't get that @ all Ive missed on alot of stuff due to things I thought I needed to accomplish. I dont see it that way anymore. I guess its cause I've lost so much ,so many loved ones. I just want to enjoy my life. I don't want to wait for retirement to have fun. we're not promised one more day.
On that note your christmas cards are going to late but you've got something else coming that should have gone out atleast a week ago but the ice kinda put that on hold
And no I cant keep a secret especially if involves something terrific,like happy mail,or just cuz cards.
I got 2 responses in the job hunt stuff which is cool. one is just temp for 3 months Im thinking I might like that then take a month or so off. i always felt I never had the time.
now I want to make the time before im too old or worse pass without having really lived
in a good long time
on that note ive got stuff to do then I might go shopping even with that holiday traffic which seems non stop since thanksgiving.

till we meet again <3

Hope you and the family have fun making cookies today. Sounds like a lovely family tradition. What are you dipping your pretzels in? I bought some pretzel thins at the store that were covered in dark chocolate and sprinkled with peppermint bits. Yummy!

Hmmm.. I thought I sent all of you the updated list with Sharon and Joyce on it. I sent it to Brandy just the other day because she had lost it or something. I can send it out to all of you again on Monday. It's on my computer at the office. Oh, I should have it as an attachment on the e-mail I sent to Brandy. I'll see if I can save it here and attach it to another e-mail to everyone.

I would love to retire now and enjoy life and not have to work, but unfortunately, I also have to pay the bills. I"m still hoping that some how I'll be able to do it next year or at the latest the year after.

My cards may also be late. I'm trying to work on them, but other stuff gets in the way.

As far as I know, July should be okay for a trip to San Antonio. I guess we'll have to see how that all plays out.

Thanks Maggie for an updated list!

Brandy, that is great you have got some employment options!

DD is coming home tomorrow for semester break. She had finals this past week and I think she is ready for some time off.

My sinuses have been bothering me big time the last few days. I guess it must be this cold weather.

Today was not one of the best days. I started out with taking Buddy to the vet. He was sick the same as Missy, but not quite as bad. I talked it over with the vet and decided that we should have him euthanized. I couldn't see giving him the same shot as Missy and then going through the same thing as I have with her. She still hasn't shown up since Tuesday morning and she's never been gone this long before so I'm just thinking the worst. The vet says that the other cats have already been exposed and it's possible they could come down with it too, but I didn't see exposing them anymore to it with Buddy still being here. It was a very sad time even though I knew it was for the best. He's never been mean only scared. I'm sure that he must have been abused before he came to my house. He would never let me get close to him and he also had a limp when he came too, so he had been injured in some way or another. While he was drifting off this morning, I was finally able to pet him and scratch his head and let him know that someone did really love him while he was here.

I don't know yet about San Antonio. I don't know yet what we might be doing this summer.

After I came home from the vet, I went back out again to do some shopping.

First went to Hobby Lobby to get some art/drawing supplies for a child on our Giving Wreath at church. Picked up some other things and some gifts while I was there so that was a productive trip.

Then I went to the Mall! Yikes! I hate the Mall. I hate shopping. I was lucky though and got a parking spot pretty quickly. I followed a guy coming out of the store to where he was parked and grabbed his spot before some lady got it away from me. Evil woman.


First stop at the Mall was James Avery to pick up a charm that I bought online for my DGD here in Texas. I'm going to give it to her as an early gift because my DD doesn't want her to have it in CA. She's afraid that it might get lost on the way home with their car trip.

Then I went to Target to get some stocking stuffers for the same child for the Giving Wreath. I didn't do any other shopping there.

My main reason for going shopping was to go to Macy's and find a dress for the wedding. I did find a black one that will do I hope. I also had to buy some "foundation" things so it would look good on because I'm sure not losing 10 pounds in the next 2 weeks. I picked up a couple tops while I was there also and a gift for my sis. I think I'm finally done with the Christmas shopping. I was so excited to get done there and so hungry that I went on home and had forgotten that I had to go to the grocery store. So after I got something to eat (it was already about 1:30) I had to head back out to the grocery store.

Got everything I needed and I bought 2 rolls of wrapping paper and a bag of bows. I was so annoyed to realize when I got to my car that she only put one of the rolls of wrapping paper in my cart. It was too much trouble to go back in and get that sorted out, so I just came on home.

Now doing all the household stuff - cleaning up the kitchen, getting laundry down, washed all the cat pads and blanket that had been outside and put them back out. It's so cold and nasty out - very windy. I had to sweep off the patio. It was covered in pecan tree leaves.

I also got all the furniture cleaned out that I'm donating to our Christmas Family from work so they can pick that up on Monday. Can't wait for it to be gone and to get my shelving unit put up so I can try to get things organized and see what I really need to get rid of.

Hope you feel better and enjoy having DD home for her break. Got plans besides Christmas?

Brandy, I sent that address list but it is out dated! We are missing Sharon and Joyce and still have some former members on there.
Yes.. ScrapFest time I did get up that early.

Maggie, I am so sorry that Buddy got sick. That is sad news to hear and sad that Missy hasn't been around. He was lucky he had you to take care of him these last few yrs!

So the vet thinks all the outdoor cats have been exposed and could get sick? I guess those mites would just go from one cat to another. I hope they don't get sick though.

Maggie, you had a busy day today!

Is your DD and her family also going to apCA to spend Christmas with your other DD?

That will be a nice trip for everyone!

Once I get home, I hate having to go back out. I like to go just once! If I forget to go to a store, I just go another day but I guess food is important! LOL

Maggie, you had a very busy day today with a terrible start to it. So sorry about your cat. So sad. I am glad he let you pet him though. He knew you cared. Hopefully none of the others will have this problem.

I dipped the pretzels in Vanilla bark. I get it at Wal-Mart. I think it works like CandiQuick. I dipped a bunch of pretzel rods in it and put sprinkles on some. Others I left plain. Last year I found individual bags made specifically for pretzels rods. Love them! I can give one or more as a little extra with someones gift. If I give a gift card I always like to have something with it.

The cut outs are done. My mom tripled her recipe and I doubled mine. My Aunt just brought over some "drop" cookie dough (snickerdoodle.). Drop cookies are easy compared to cut outs. Mine need frosted but my mothers recipe does not. Tomorrow I will be doing press cookies (spritz). Then next weekend I will bake the peanut butter ones with the chocolate kiss on top. It was a fun afternoon. My Uncle, step dad and brother popped over. The Uncle is my Aunt's brother (my Aunt is widowed and her brother is divorced). My Aunt brought some little deli sandwiches for us to eat. Was nice to have something substantial. I love a cookie but right now I am tired of them. LOL

We are going to watch a movie tonight. Maybe Elf.

I love the thought of San Antonio and I especially love the thought of us getting together. I am not sure yet what July holds. What weekend was Kelly going to be there. I know over the 4th I will be on a family trip and the weekend after my hubby is away for work. Will need to look at the dates. If it is late July I think it would be a better hope for me to come. Keep me posted.

Brenda I just found out tonight that those peanut butter cookies with a kiss on top are called peanut blossoms. LOL

We are watching Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.

I think they've probably been exposed since they all eat together on the patio, but they didn't hang around together except for maybe Missy and Buddy. They both went off in the same direction when they left my house. They may have been buddies. Mostly the other ones went their separate ways, so I don't know how exposed they were to the 2 sick ones. I do have to keep an eye on them and at the first sign, get them to a vet for the shots if I can.
