The tree and all decorations are already down here. Since we go for the biggest tree we can find (and this year's was HUGE), our family room always feels so big when we pull it out. Feels nice for a few days. Lots more room to watch TV. Still, sad to see all the decorations go. The only thing still up is my Christmas village, which my wife allows me to keep up until the warm weather hits!

I always hate how big the living room feels when we take the tree out. I always find myself looking in the direction where the tree should be. Eventually I appreciate the space, but not for a while. My house always feels so plain after the tree and decorations come down.

Good Thursday morning, my Christmas friends!

I'm fighting a virus on my laptop today. Grrrr. A/V software failed me. Luckily, I don't keep much info on the laptop. I think I'll just format the harddrive and start over.

My brother and I worked on my old car till 9pm last night, getting ready to sandblast the front end. It's messy, but I love working on it.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Time will tell, but she still has the pains now. Not the best way to start off 2013 so please keep her in your prayers.
Hope shes feeling a bit better now there is a awful bad bug going round here i hope its nots that

I had my friend Gus's homemade sauerkraut ~ it was good and it didn't stink the house up, either. I simmered the frozen sauerkraut in a cup of water until heated through and added some hardwood smoked chicken sausage on top ~ yummo!

I can't even look at the stuff! Long story short ~ I used to read horror comic magazines and that is one story I will never forget!

Ok everyone, the dirty word of today is WORK!!!!

We get in this morning and first thing, there is an email telling us to be in the large conference room at 9:00 am. We get there and it starts with,
Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all our employees! Then we receive a blah, blah, blah, etc..., for an hour and a half on how bad the economy is, tough times ahead, they forsee at least another 2-3 years of bad times because of the current administration and their policies and bad decisions for business, etc.... Also, we will all see a change in our paychecks with additional taxes coming out. We have to all tighten our belts, be more productive, give back more to the company! Oh, the company did buy a new Keurig coffee machine, but you need to buy your own coffee to use in it; HUH???

So, I'll put in a another way; from what I heard thru my ears:

Times are tough,
And things are hard,
so here's your (a PG rated blank space here) Christmas card!

(Sorry for that, but that just really sets me off the deep end knowing full well that the management got their bonuses and raises and we get a new coffee machine that we have to buy our own coffee inorder to use it!)

Yup, just a lovely way to start a New year! No raises again, No nothing! The prices of everything has gone up and still going up and our salaries remain flat. I guess I should be happy that they haven't started cutting people loose, yet!!! I guess that will be in a matter of time!

Ugggh, I'm mad and it's not even lunch yet. I should be quiet, or they might take that away next!!!!
