Just quickly looking at my trees, I already see lights and garland that needs to be replaced for next year. My chaser lights only every third light is working, quite a few C7 bulbs have burnt out. (I already bought 2 boxes of those.) Some of my bubble lights have burnt out, I always worry about finding those though. I need to write this stuff down in my notebook, and keep my eyes open online for things. The pain and joys of Christmas decorating.

This afternoon, we have to go to the funeral home - DH's best friend, which he is also our's son's godfather's, his dad passed away. We will do that, then come home and spend some time with the kids.

It's back to work for me tonight. I am off to help DH and make dinner. Talk you guys later on!

PS- Preseason Thunder kicks off at Daytona on Thursday. Speed is going to have live coverage online in the mornings and on tv in the afternoon's. So lock your office door, kick back, and watch the new cars get out there and tear up the track. (hopefully not literally)
I am pulling for your Colts...just for you....

and I am stoked about Preseason Thunder...but I have ballgame duty...nevertheless, I have DVR. It is so on next Friday night when I finally get to watch....

Good morning!

Been at work since 5:45...and just got home a bit ago...it's going to be time for a nap in a bit...but not before coffee and a biscuit....

Football ALL DAY today....excited.

Football and racing is what keeps me going this time of year...and this is the best time of year for football and Daytona is coming up in a few weeks...that's the best time to be a race fan....

Hmmmm. I have a council meeting tomorrow evening. I've been thinking of making a motion to change the city name from Bellville to JingleBellville. Has a nice ring to it, don'tcha think?

Good Sunday morning, my Christmas friends!

I worked most of the morning with the crew taking down the city's Christmas decorations from the power company poles. It was a bit sad, but we were discussing when to get started on repairs for next year, and when to start working on putting up the (soon to be ordered) Fall banners. It gave me a little cheer to think that fall decorating has to start in just 9 council meetings!

The rest of the day, I worked at my brother's shop on the Camaro he's rebuilding for me. We put it on the rack and sprayed the underside with rubberized undercoating, then did some more disassembing. I have to say, I didn't know a car could come apart in so many pieces. I'm taking the front frame section (known as the front clip) to my brother-in-law for sandblasting this afternoon.

I'm learning a lot!

I hope y'all have a great day!

It looks like hockey is back! Woooooooooo hooooooooo! Forget football! Just give me the Pittsburgh Penguins within two weeks and I will be a happy camper! It looks like a 50 game season would start by Jan 15 and a 48 game season by Jan 19.

It was so good. Even better since I had a little energy that I did not have at Christmas!
