Good Morning, Everyone!

It's like this every year. Slowly they disappear during January and all will probably be gone before Feb 1.

Speaking of that Christmas feel, let's check on how far away NEXT Christmas is:
Days to the Season: 311
Days to Christmas Day: 353
SINGLE digits to our first milestone as of the day after tomorrow!
(How can we have moved that far along already, Guys??)

Forty degrees here when I got up and it's still 40 under cloudy skies at this hour with the threat of more rain. (We had some last night)
The chance of snow has lessened, however, but is still possible by Monday.

You have a Thrilling Thursday, Friends.
Tomorrow is our first Weekend Eve of the new year!

I didn't think I was going to make but thank God and prednisone, I am here this morning. I am not as sad as I was but more worried than ever, which is okay. I know how to deal with that since I am the original worry wart kid.
My goodness! I'm so sorry you're having such troubles. I hope today is a better day for you!

I don't think we have that one ... maybe I'll get it for my husband's birthday. Sounds good! Thanks for the info!

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

It's still rainy here, in the upper 40's. Not too bad, but i wish it would clear up some.

My son started JV basketball this year and tonight we have to travel into Savannah for a game. It's not that far, but it doesn't start till 7PM. That gets us home pretty late, and we still have homework to get done, baths to take, etc. It looks like we'll be eating McDonald's on the road this evening. Sigh.

Oh, well. I hope you all have a great day!

I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmassy day. I kept the TV on all night on Music Choice - Sounds Of The Season - because today is the last day for it. I loved falling asleep with Christmas carols on !!

Take care everyone !
I am so sorry your kitty is ill. Hopefully it's just a temporary situation and he gets better. I will say a prayer.

As you and I have talked about before, it is so difficult for kids these days to take on extra cirricular activities and family time when they have homework everyday. My grandson is in the 1st grade and has it everyday. Hopefully a routine will get worked out where he doesn't get too worn down. =)

Xmas365 and Snow-in-Texas, I know what you mean by people becoming fans of whoever is doing well and winning that year. I have been a die hard fan of the Cowboys since I was 5 no matter what type of year they have. I might root on another team if they don't make the playoffs but my heart is with the Boys and my loyalty doesn't change. I have had friends who go back and forth from the Cowboys when they do well to completely finding another team to like year after year.

Good morning, Christmas friends! I woke up to heavy fog this morning, so I will have to drive slowly to work. Instead of 3 minutes, it might take me a whole 8 minutes to get there!! I am in enough of a fog as it is!!! I hope each of you have a great day.
