It was such a hard decision to make, but in my heart I know it was the right one. She passed peacefully with my hubby & I with her. We were lucky to have her for 13 1/2 years and she will be missed, but I know she is in a better place with no pain or discomfort. I like to think that she's running with Sadie & Rusty and having a great time!
Oh, Paula, I am so sorry to hear about Molly.

holy cow! it's cold. I just ran over to my son's to pick up my stamping stuff I left Sat. I am not usually cold (due to lots of thermal padding Im sure) and this wind just cuts right through you. Going to try to make myself get dressed early and go shopping at Kohls. Hope its not so cold tomorrow. brrrrrrrrrr. I might have to try to light the fireplace pilot light. Probably not as I am afraid of it. :^)

We went to the mall tonight for Santa pictures. As we were walking out there were some girls walking through with about 4 pups that must have been in some sort of service training, they all had green bandanas around their neck. Two of them were German Shepherds. My mouth fell to the floor and I looked up at Dh and said, "You know what those where?" To which Mackenzie answered, "Yeah, they were puppies." My heart skipped a beat when I saw those little fur balls. I told dh I would be ready in the spring....he said I'm nuts. He's probably right, but the house seems soooo quiet sometimes.....you know, at 2 am as long as he gets to sleep in and none of the girls are sick or having bad dreams

Do any of you watch "In the Middle?" Last night the Dad was in charge of Christmas so the mom could go to extra choir practices. It was hysterical, from a mom prospective, I don't think J saw the humor in it as much. At the end he forgot to put tags on the gifts so they were opening things guessing who it was for.
Cute idea!

Oh my Amanda! So glad it didn't happen during the day when they were in there playing! Glad no one was hurt, just a mess...

Hope you had a fun birthday party tonight!

April is was nice to be able to put a face to the name!

Cherie, thanks so much for bringing those goodies last night...they were so yummy and the kids were tickled to be able to take the leftover ones to school for lunch.

Jeanne, thanks for the awesome coasters I can't wait to make them!!!!! I have been looking for some ever since Kimme altered me a set.

Loretta, thanks for the wonderful christmas tag stamp set, they will be fun to play with this week.

Jane, thanks as always for your thoughtfulness! The kids are so tickled and are demanding to go to McDonalds to buy their own food...and I so LOVE the star ornament! Did you make it? If so I want to you show me how, DS already picked a spot on the tree for it and it's hanging there proudly and the tree box is on the table waiting to be opened on Christmas!

Just got home from dropping off and Angel gift and now I must run and cut DS's hair for his concert tonight. Hope you all are staying warm.

Hope to see some of you on Saturday. Jeanne if you would like to carpool let me know, I'll be more than happy to pick you up.
Thanks, but I am planning to drive up. Who knows, I may have to detour and do some shopping in/around the area! See you there!

Hi everyone;

We made it here to Georgia around 9:15 pm. Long drive.

We stopped and visited our former neighbors now in Columbia. We sprang for a whirlpool tub suite and it is so nice. Already took a long soak!

Be careful, I hear the temps are going to be brutal tonight!

Everyone; I'll check in and catch up the thread later on, please be safe and warm you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Hugs,

Default Good Morning All

Rose, leave the coat in the car....easier than schlepping it around. Mary, You can celebrate Christmas with me in January because that is when I will probably be ready! Traveling over Thanksgiving put me behind, and no cracks because I know I have a big behind issue.........Kimme, it's something about the time of year. I find myself wanting a pet and I know I can't do that. Amanda, I am so sorry about the continuing saga of "THE ROOM" and hope it gets straight soon.
Did I tell everyone that I found the last lost item? The pillow case turned up and no, I am not discussing my brain either, because I think it is too far lost to find! For now, I am semi-back together. Rose, when is your official last day? Is it next week? Congratulations on the big retirement and I just know you are planning on sharing some of those goodies with your stamping firends, right? (LMAO!)

Mmmmmm...cake balls. What kind? I have some mocha ones in the freezer I was going to dip in white chocolate for you all. I guess I'll leave that off the list. I'm making the saltine toffee today though for sure. That stuff is addictive.

THANKS LADIES!

If we pay the money that's one less thing we have to make/schlep around. plus more room for auction tables, a lot less cleanup and more time to stamp.

Wow! I wonder what age you have to be to be considered for the Senior Angel program? Maybe I'll qualify in a few years since I'll be 60 in January!

That's great that she's so much younger than your last one, you will have a lot more time to get to know her and I'll bet you'll hear back from her too! I just heard from Ms. Ruth, got a cute Christmas card that she made herself! Her daughter is also into stamping and making cards so she sent her mom some card kits to make. I was so tickled to get one of them! I need to get busy and get her package together to send!

Mary, your senior angel is young, only a year older than ME! It definitely is cold out. I came back from another building but didnt walk, took the shuttle. They had a retirement reception for me. Very nice. Lots of leftover cookies. And my old boss brought his homemade buckeyes - chocolate and pnutbutter! Heaven, I'm in heaven.... And no, I didnt open the box and share! I tell everyone I dont share chocolate or men.
LOL! Rose you are too funny! I don't share either of those myself!

Awww.... I just know they were adorable! I'm glad to hear you are thinking about getting one in the spring! Everyone thinks we are nuts to have adopted two more dogs after losing Rusty and Sadie, especially since we have Rocky & Zippy but for us there was no question that we would replace them with rescues that desperately needed homes. They have made our house happy again. Sammy is really adjusting well and he even gets on the bed with us for a little while everynight. I really miss having Rusty to snuggle with, he would always jump in dh's spot every morning after he got up and we would have some snuggle time before I had to get up.

I'm SO glad it's finally Friday!! Plan on getting the tree tomorrow...BEFORE the messy weather on Sunday! Still have shopping to do...still need to bake...still need to CLEAN! Don't think I'll be ready for Christmas!!
Hope you all have a great day!! Stay warm!
You and me both Mary! The tree is up but that is all, I still need to clean, finish decorating, bake, make some handmade gifts and write out my cards! Fortunately I am taking those three days off before Christmas since we have a furlough day on Christmas Eve so I hope to get the baking and handmade gifts done those days. This weekend and next is cleaning, decorating, and cards! Oh, and all the dogs are getting baths as well sometime before Christmas so they can wear their Christmas bandanas!

I was thinking the same thing Tracy! I sure wish "my behind" was as BIG as Jane's!

THANKS LADIES!
I'd much rather pay the $10 and do pizza! That's how Cathy does hers in Reisterstown and it works out very well, a lot less work for everyone! And like DM said, more time for stamping!

Well, I made it thru my Kohl's trip. Got the girls clothes gifts and a few other things then went to Target and got a couple things. It's not my usual Target and I had to ask directions to get back to the front of the store. Of course I had been wandering around for awhile making wrong turns. My legs and hips were screaming. It is cold! Now I have to leave to get beautified - color and cut! Everybody needs a warm snuggly doggie today! Enjoy the day!

Hey Kimme, if you get a chance can you post the recipe for the saltine toffee? I love that stuff but never knew how to make it.

That's great that she's so much younger than your last one, you will have a lot more time to get to know her and I'll bet you'll hear back from her too! I just heard from Ms. Ruth, got a cute Christmas card that she made herself! Her daughter is also into stamping and making cards so she sent her mom some card kits to make. I was so tickled to get one of them! I need to get busy and get her package together to send!
Remember- most places consider you a "senior" at 55! Yikes!!! She's only 68, however, her health isn't the best. Her bio (which her granddaughter wrote) says she loves to write notes and send cards, so I'm hopeful I'll hear form her!!

I agree-pizza is easy, less work for everyone...
