Sharon, I'm glad your mom is doing well and she is some place safe. She isn't too far away so you can see her often and check in on her.

We were out today and at some stores and she remembered there are some shoes she would like and couldn't find any so I found some on Amazon after we got home!

Also she saw some fleece jackets and went oooohhhh. Aaaaahhhhh. LOL she looked really quick as we were walking and we left the store. I had seen them before and thought about getting her one so I think I will go back and get her one now that I know for sure she will like it.

I think I will definitely save two of the gift cards for later. I'm glad I bought three and not one for the full amount.

Hi Gals!

Brandy.. I tried the folding a few years back and it was not my thing maybe you will enjoy it more than I did. Thank you for the card. I loved it! Nice surprise too.

Nancy, I would get her things for the apartment. I know you found other stuff but you could always put a spatula in her stocking. LOL I remember when I was planning for my own place place pots and pans and household items were fun to get.

Soni, good to hear from you!

Jackie...glad all is well with you. Are you ready for Christmas?

Sharon, glad your mom is in a better place. Nice to have you back on the thread with us.

Maggie, so sorry about your cat!! What a nightmare day!! Awful really!! When you get time (even after the holidays is fine) please email me that pie recipe.

The holiday fun continues.....gift and cookie exchange at work tomorrow. Boy do I love a cookie! Bring them on! One of the best ones will be from my co worker that doesn't bake. Lol! Every year she goes to a Mexican bakery and brings cookies from it. Not sure what they bake with but totally different taste. My favorite is this multi colored one. Yum! My mom's favorite is the "pig" .. Think that one has molasses in it. I do not care for the pig one.

My last day of work is this Thursday. I go back on Jan 7! Woo Hoo!!! Office party is this Fri night at the bosses house.

DH has a terrible head cold.

DD has two days of school left until 01/06. Have her signed up for YMCA day camp a couple of her days off.

I got a free lunch at Subway today. Gal in front of me bought it and said Merry Christmas. So nice! Needless to day I was shocked.

See you back her tomorrow

Thanks Brenda and Maggie! I think I will buy her some pots and pans! I had already looked at some and DH thought it was a dumb gift. I might give her a Bed Bath and Beyond or Kohls GC instead so she can get whatever else she might need and pick it out herself.

Good morning!

Brenda, don't eat too many cookies! That is too funny that the best cookies at the exchange are the bakery bought Mexican cookies!

We are going this morning to see Catching Fire. We have been waiting for DD to come home so she could baby sit. Well she wants to see it again. So we are all going to a 10:30 am show. I don't know why DH and I didn't think of going to the first show in the morning (while the kids are in school) before!

Maggie so sorry about all your cat problems! You are so good to those kitties! Cant believe the problems you had trying to help!
So very glad that you were able to find a nice place for your mom to live. I know it must have been exhausting for you to be there every night although I know that you wouldn't have done any less. Can she take some of her "stuff" to her new place or will you let family members take some and sell or donate the rest?

Kitties all seem to be doing well this morning, thank you.

I think they wanted to explain to the vet how it wasn't their fault that it happened. I'm sure they will send over the papers after they talk to the vet since he used to be the director over there. He knows how things go.

See you back her tomorrow
My oldest DD had some kitchen stuff on her Amazon Wish List. I actually ordered her some of those silicone baking cups for cupcakes or muffins. Also a book called The Art of Mixing. I love Amazon.

I'll be happy to send you the recipe. I better do it sooner or I may forget. I was thinking of making it again tonight to bring to our office lunch tomorrow. I have all the ingredients except for a few sandwich cookies for the crust, but I might be able to make do.

Yeah for long vacations. I'm off the 24th until Jan. 2.

Sorry about DH. Hope he gets over that soon.

Sweet on the free lunch! I've heard that there are many people out there doing that.

If I don't get to see it this Saturday (by myself) I won't get to see it on the big screen. I have so much going on though, so I'm not sure I will get to see it.

Just finished up making a sweet potato casserole and another Frozen Mint Chocolate Chip pie to take to work tomorrow for our office Christmas luncheon. Also got my cards in envelopes and addressed. Still have to wrap up 2 gifts for 2 girls at work for tomorrow and then off to bed.

Oh, Brenda, I did get my October Afternoon package today. Great stuff!

Good morning Nancy,

Yes, I'm cooking the casserole this morning so it'll be fresh and warm. I just sent you the recipe for the pie.

Hi! Yesterday I didn't go out of the house! I finished my gift calendars and addressed and mailed some Christmas cards. I made a lasagna and froze it. That will be our Christmas dimmer, along with garlic bread and pea, lettuce , onion, bacon salad. It is called Frozen pea salad. You layer then frost it with mayo. It is better than it sounds and my family loves it. Made more pumpkin bread and Christmas mix. I will make cookies tomorrow, and get my hair done, and see Mom. I got my nails done today and took Mom's neighbor to see her. I have been trying to get Mom's email changed, and on her iPad. Think I will have to wait till my kids/grandkids get here to do it. I am to electronically challenged! Our daughter, son in law and three grand kids get here Sat. Sis and hubby come Monday. Enjoy your preparations for Christmas!

Have fun this weekend! Have you and Nancy met before in person or is this the first time? Good luck on the dress...should be a lot of choices this time of year.

I will be shopping on Saturday night. My one buddy and I do one final mall night together (dinner and gift exchange first) . She is my Black Friday shopping buddy that comes with my family and I. We call Saturday night our final mall walk for the season. LOL

Great you have your dinner all pre-made! I bet your mom was glad to see her neighbor. What kind of cookies are you making? I love cookies!

I don't know why DH and I didn't think of going to the first show in the morning (while the kids are in school) before!
The cookie exchange went well. Yes, the Mexican bakery cookies still won first place in my book! LOL this is too funny.....DD gets in the car after school. First question she asks is did I get any of those Mexican pastries (they are really cookies) in the exchange. LOL See what a hit they are? LOL When I was younger we would go down to Nogales, Mexico at least once a year and always hit the bakery. I have not been down there in 12 years! Ever since I had DD. The gal that brought them for the exchange got them in town though.

I hope to see several movies while. I am off work. I want to see Saving Mr. Banks, Frozen and Catching Fire. DD saw Catching Fire already. Did you like it?

Brandy, thanks for the card! I love it. Cannot for the life of me remember if I told you this or not.

This will be the first time that we've met in person Brenda. We've talked on the phone quite a few times or should I say *giggled & laughed* so this will be a great Christmas gift for both of us

Good morning!

Brenda, that is too funny that those cookies are such a hit! Jackie and I have never met before but we have talked on the phone several times. So I am excited!!

Catching Fire was really good. It was 2.5 hours but sure didn't seem like it! When it was over, I was like "noooooooooo" LOL

I hope DH was able to wake up for his conference call quietly!

Attention.....those of you receiving square cards from me---there was some technical difficulties with my envelope glue like maybe I've had it too long or something so I ended up using regular adhesive to keep those babies shut!!! You'll just have to literally rip them open but it's the card inside that counts right

Have a great day everyone!!!!!
