I really shouldn't have stayed up until 4am watching Christmas movies on hallmark. The Santa Suit is one of my favorites though and I hadn't seen it all the way through this season. Well I'm off to do the dishes and I have any energy left I'm going to start packing up my Santa's. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!
I just saw The Santa Suit for the first time this past Christmas ~ loved it!

I think this year is going to be the year where I enrich my life a little bit more with watching classic movies and reading classis novels. For example, (and I know you may find this hard to believe), but I watched Holiday Inn last night for the very first time. I really enjoyed it and I'm asking myself why haven't I done so before!

Now, I was watching WALL-E this past week (I'm a big kid) and there were some scenes where WALL-E was watching a musical and dancing to it. I would really to know what that movie/ musical was so that I can watch it.

I have never read "A Christmas Carol", Moby Dick, etc... It's my plans in this year to do so as well. Its a year for me to sort of reboot my way of entertaining my intrests and also education of the classics; and I'm open to any great suggestions~

I pulled all but two Christmas items out of my booth yesterday ~ it is such a small space I have to do that to make room for items that are seasonal. If I had more room, I would have a Christmas section year-round! Packing the items away didn't make me sad though, as I buy stuff I wouldn't mind keeping should a buyer for the items not be found

I hope your kiddos are better today! What kind of goodies have you found?

It gives us something to look forward to in February!

Hope your winter is good...spring will be here before we know it.

Oh, my ranting earlier about work was most likely set off this morning by starting the car and realizing that there is this green fluid running down the asphalt. So I took it to the garage and they called me first thing and told me I need a new radiator, new hoses and my transmission fluid needs replacing; apparently....

Man, that's not going to be cheap. I popped the hood of the car and looked inside and you cannot even get your hand in there at all to work on it with so much stuff in the way. They are going to have to tear half the front end of the car off in order to get to the radiator, talk about a labor intensive job. You know that's going to cost me!

I feel like I'm starting this year off on a negative note (in the red), with the car breaking down, me, destroying my garage door, my daughters college tution bill just came in the mail, along with the property tax bill (boy, uncle Sam is never late on that now, is he?), lol....

I need to work some overtime or hit the powerball..... What is it that they say, it's something like you need to work about 4 months of the year and give 100% of your earnings to the goverment and the rest of the years earnings is all yours? I'm not sure, but it's something similiar like that....

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!
Good luck with the interview!
