Hello! news coming from a winter wonderland. we got about 12" of snow. I love how pretty it looks. The plows came through about 45 minutes ago. I shoveled out the end of a 2 car drive way. It was heavy. I guess that will be my exercise for the day!

Jennifer- Oh so cute!

Jen- You guys should come to MN. I am sure we will have a White Christmas!

Joanne- I am trying my hardest to stay away from dark chocolate. it is my downfall!

Sherry- All I can say is you were a busy bee!

Hi to everyone else that I missed.

As the oldest of the group, everyone I see including most of you look like kids.

I am done. Seven stops today plus a haircut. Not going out anymore.
I plan to wrap on Weds and I will get the SS box shipped that night if it takes me til midnight as I work the next four days in a row!

I found it to be very busy. I enjoyed the smaller places I stopped at but the mall was painful. Needed a gift for a 10 year old niece, had to be from a certain store.

feeling better, DH did ask me to ride with him because he really didnt want to drive by hisself with the weather the way it is. So I gave in and went. I am feeling some better. Tomorrow we go to the Holiday Inn to eat Breakfast with Santa. My class and the 3s. I am sure they will love it. So will I. We are on the clock but dont have to take care of the kiddos because their parents have to bring them and take them back to school.

Hope you all had a great day today.

Nikki - tomorrow is the day you wish you had more often, right? Have fun. I'm very glad you are feeling better.

Joan - I saw that you got hit with a lot of snow. I was wondering if you were going to be around to post. Hope you didn't overdo it with the shoveling.

I didn't go on my get away today. I ran errands in town instead, and that took almost the whole day. I got all the presents bought. I will still buy Gift Cards, but there is no hurry on them. I also want to get my husband a few things. Tomorrow, We are going to Take out a few more things out of my Craft room, and then Bob's going to paint the ceiling. I decided I want it white, to brighten and cheer up the room.
I haven't felt good this afternoon. We ate at a mexican restaurant, and I've been chilling and my stomach hurts. It is cold here, but at least it's not raining anymore.
I'm going to get my baking list together tomorrow, and make my grocery list. It is time to bake!!! I haven't baked in several years, and I am looking forward to it this year!
I am still waiting on 1 SS item. It should be here any day. I plan on mailing my package by Friday.

Productive morning over here.

Took photos of Drew's class for the Christmas project next week, renewed my license (10 minutes- in and out!), went to the vitamin store, went to Best Buy for a card reader for my cameras because I can't find the cord, got my eyebrows waxed, shopped at Old Navy for presents for me (a couple of new things for the new job, can't go in in jeans everyday and nothing fits!) and I was home by 10:30!

Good morning, Reynold is working at the bank today. He also got a call yesterday from another guy wanting him to work at a bank next week in Easton for a few days. In this economy with so many people unemployed, we are truly blessed to have the extra income.

This is a very old joke.... remember both my mother and her sister telling this one...

Mother of Six

Joe was proud of his family of six children. He frequently
referred to his wife as "Mother of Six," much to her
annoyance. Finally, she cured him of his habit. At the end
of a big party, Joe called out loud enough for everyone to
hear: "Ready to go, Mother of Six?"

"Any time you are," she replied, "Father of Four."

Got a couple of very good deals at ON. I bought a couple of sweaters, a couple of plain white shirts and some other goodies.

Afternoon!!!

It has been a productive day here as well!!! Dogs went to the groomer this morning. Then Julie and I ran some errands. Home and started baking. I have two loaves of cranberry bread done, cinnamon/applesauce is baking now. I also did two of the pretzel treats - one with a melted rollo plopped with a pecan. The other is topped with a Hershey HUG and a red or green M&M. I will make some more Christmas brittle bark (also called Christmas Crack - because you can NOT stay away from it . . . ). I'm going to make two versions. We bought a LOT of melting chocolate so I would like to use most of it up.

Just taking a break to give my back a break and let the bread finish baking.

Hello, I have been lurking but not posting. It has been a week

Paul started his new job on Monday Dec 3rd and was laid off on Friday Dec 7th. If I feel this ticked off I cant imagine how he feels. So back to looking for a job he goes

Now you all know why I wanted to make those cute little drinks in the limes friday night As it was we went out to dinner/drinks with friends on friday night to let off a little steam.

Heather, I am SO, SO sorry!!! Yes, I'm sure your husband is beyond being ticked off, and I would be too!!! I guess that would NOT have been a good place to work had he stayed.

SURPRISE ! ! ! I have my Christmas Tree up!!! It's just a little table top one, but last year we never put it up. If I left it to my husband, it would still be in the basement. I plan on decorating it this evening.

I cleaned out the curio cabinet that was in the bedroom that is now my Craft Room. It is making it's new room in the Living Room. It will look better after Bob paints the Living and Dining Rooms later this winter. He is already complaining! He is out buying paint rollers so he can paint my Craft room. One day this week I'm going to look at Office chairs. I think I want one for ME. The rest I am looking for some used wood ones that I can paint. I just wish that the WHITE office chairs were more white. So, I'm not sure if I'll get a whitish one or brown.

I am SO tired for some reason. The sun is out today, so that isn't my problem.

Heather- That is an awful thing to do. Hire someone for a few days. Like the others..did they give him a reason?

I am happy that so many are full of energy... not me!

I am still getting my SS package together. I will send it as soon as possible!

I finished baking all the breads! Woo hoo!! I still have a few more little goodies I want to put together. I'll add them on the tray with the bread. Probably will put some Hershey kisses or something as well to make it look festive. I will start delivering Thursday, I think.

I have to get my SS gift wrapped and mailed. I want to get my cousin's gift out, too. I should be able to get it all finished and to the post office by Thursday as well. I'll make that my running errands day.

We have great news for Camron & Conrad.... we just booked our timeshare for June to Disney World. The condo is three blocks from Disney with seven pools so am sure they will enjoy it and we will enjoy watching them have fun. Conrad loves Minnie.

We are staying at Sheraton Vistana resort Sheraton Vistana Resort, Orlando, Florida

We just sold one of our timeshares that we had in North Carolina that is a lock-out unit so it traded as two weeks. We have let friends rent weeks from us because we had more weeks than we could use. Now we have one in Williamsburg, VA, another in Orlando & one in Texas. We have been truly blessed to travel all over the country, the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada and Europe and thoroughly have enjoyed the lovely condos.

The maintenance fees have gone up considerably over the years however we think it is still is more cost effective.

How fun! We are going to Disney in feb/march. I can't wait! I need a vacation! We're staying at a value resort. I don't want to worry about driving and staying off property plus car rental equals about the same price.

Yes, it's exciting! They don't know. It'll be a surprise. I've saved my tax refund from last year for the trip.

Of course now my car needs a ton of work or I need a new car but somehow it'll all work out. I have faith!

My stomach is really bothering me. I went to bed at around 2:30 yesterday, and didn't get up until this morning. I have things I have to do for Christmas, and especially my SS gift, but I am feeling too sick today. I had better get feeling better real soon!

Yes, I'm really excited. Disney is truly a place where you can get away from it all. No news, no worries, no electronics. I thought about a beach vacation but there would be complaining about being bored, etc. The boys are at a perfect age to enjoy something like this.

It'll be our first vacation in a VERY long time.

Of course now my car needs a ton of work or I need a new car but somehow it'll all work out. I have faith!

Faith can move mountains!

Boo-hoo, hiss, Linda, so sorry - sending lots of healing hugs your way. <3

Has anyone notice the new "disapprove" option SCS now has on posts? Wonder what happens when you click on it?

Thanks everyone, we are still trying to wrap our minds around the whole situation. The new job was at a very small company with their headquarters in Draper UT. The position he had was a new one and basically it came down to money. I think they wanted to expand but they didn't get the contracts they counted on to be able to have a new sales position.

Lots more I could say, but with not knowing who is lurking etc I will keep the rest of the info to myself. Lets just say they couldnt pay their regular bills let alone an additional employees salary.

Its for the best we found out now and not a couple of months down the road. I have to just keep having faith that everything will work out.
