It gives us something to look forward to in February!

Hope your winter is good...spring will be here before we know it.
We have a place like that here in Pa too. I think we plan on going in March.

Good morning,


I am here all by my lonesome, I cleaned the kitchen after I dropped the boys off, I am missing them and my wife a lot today, I had another meltdown while cleaning. But, I got a phone call from a company and I have an interview tomorrow. I have had 3 phone calls already this morning from companies looking to give me an interview. I just posted my resume online Sunday night, and all of this attention. Still not from the company I am hoping for, so I have to prep for my first interview in over 12 years. Back to work on Friday for me, just trying to enjoy the last few days.

Have a great day!

A lot of us think the same thing, Undrtakr. Glad you all had a great Christmas.

Heh. I have the Christmas music still going in my car and home. The tree is up and lit right now and the house is still festive. I'm going to see how long I can get away with it! Why not! The neighbors still have all their stuff up and on. I love it! William loved his gifts. He keeps saying "Daddy, I love my gifts!". We did a good job this year. I hope everyone else had a good one too. Don't get the blues people. If you do we still have HERE! I found a pine yankee candle at Halmark for 12 bucks! YAY! I get excited when I find the Christmas scents. We are all recovering from a virus that has been pretty bad this year. Flu like symptoms but not the flu. You know what I don't like? When radio stations stop right away on December 26th with Christmas music. It should go through till the first week of January. Well, that's what I think. Hope everyone has a good evening!

I have "Christmas" saved on my cable box so all I have to do is hit the button and it tells me whats on. I also have "Santa Claus" and "holiday" saved.

Right now there is 118 items with the word Christmas in it. Down from over 500 before Christmas.

What are all of you up today? I know most of you are back to work. I go back to work tonight, work tomorrow night, then am off for the weekend. It makes for not a bad schedule this week at all. DH works the two nights I am at work, too, so it makes it nice.

I see some of you are mentioning about taking your decorations down already. We will be taking ours down on Sunday, which is the Epiphany and the end of the Christmas season. It will make it perfect this year, since we will both be off too.

I don't have a whole lot planned for today. I am just going to do some laundry and spend some time with DH and the kids.

Hope you all have a great day. Christmas may be over, but let the light always shine in us! We all have each other, just remember that. God Bless and keep smiling! Praying for all of you, your families, and furbabies!
