Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a great morning so far. I am checking in real quick before sleeping for a few hours.

Work was horrible last night. I earned my money, that is for sure!

Well, just wanted to stop by and say hi. I will be back here a little later! Hugs to you all!

Wow.
Such a great run. So little time left.
A time of sadness.....
.....yet anticipation!

A time to lock and a time to launch.

Have a Thrilling Thursday, my Friends.
wow, almost time for the end of this year already, the time sure flew by! I find the older I get the faster time seems to go.
Next year will be better....it almost always is!

Stay safe and stay blessed!!
I had the snow tires put on the car yesterday. Now that we finally have the white stuff thought I better get it done. I was surprised that I was only there 1/2 hours and it was done! Only $5 a tire, changed and balanced, nice deal.

If anyone has a story on Lucky Foods for the New Year I would love to hear from you.

I plan to make these food for the New Year from other countries and traditions. Here in the southern USA it is considered lucky to eat black eyed peas on New Years Day. You can read the whole story on the link I posted above.

I did a google search on lucky foods from around the world but would love to hear personal stories from all of you, if you have one! =)

Thanks!!!

my daughter got off night shift at 7am, she is also sleeping.
Funny thing is, she had a horrible night too...works at a hotel, front desk. Hockey tournament in town, lots of kids. This time it was not the kids that were the problem. Some workers were replacing and cleaning a large fan in the kitchen and were actually singing, loudly. In a hotel at midnight! That is a company I would certainly not deal with again, so thoughtless. Kept a couple of families up and annoyed now demanding a free room (which I agree they should get) Of course, my daughter being on the front desk is the one who got all the yelling at, actually had to leave for awhile because they guy was getting really nasty over something she could do nothing about. Told her she should have sent the guest in to talk to the workers and yell at them instead!

Oh my, I am ranting...sorry, continue with your day, just ignore the crazy poster mom who has her back up over someone threatening her daughter!

Good evening, MMC!

Made it safely back from the vet's office. The roads were very icy by me, but once in town, they were relatively clear.
Mouse received her final shot - her treatment is over

Have a great evening!!!!!!!!
Great news on Mouse!!!

Ha ha!

With our black eyed pea tradition is well know around here. In fact our store shelves get cleared out of them this time of year. The whole time I was growing up I thought it was world wide but when I started dating my boyfriend in high school from Michigan his family thought I was crazy! Ha ha! Then they realized just about everyone in Texas ate them on New Years.

Oh yeah, Wayne is from Maryland, he never heard of it either. Now it's his tradition too!
