I hear you on the expense part. Luckily, we have the money (borrowed) to do our renovations on the kitchen, so we can just get started and do it. I can just imagine how you will feel the first time behind the wheel for real!!!

After all the paperwork is completed, I will receive my first retirement check after 45 days. I also need to meet with my financial planner at Edward Jones. I think my last day of work will be January 31, 2013. It feels so good to type that!!! TTYT
That is so exciting!! Congratulations, Seawaters!! Xo

Days to the Season: 306

Now under a week off from our first Milestone of Christmas Countdown 2013, the 300-Day Season Window.
(Came mighty quick, didn't it?)

Another nice day yesterday with the high once again in the 60's.
Looking forward to 70+ tomorrow, Sunday and Monday!
I read 44 degrees here, currently.

You have a simply Fabulous Friday, Friends.
And a Wonderous Weekend commencement this afternoon, as well!
Yay!! Another milestone is in our sights!! Thank God for these days =] And thank you, Crown!!

I forgot to ask if you have named or will name your car? Also, when is breakfast on Saturday and what is on the menu? Who is going with me?

This is my weekend at Bernie's (not quite like the movie!)


I hope y'all have a great day!

Gotta leave for work in a few minutes. Today is Friday, so it is assessment day. The kids also have PE this afternoon. Sometimes I use it as a planning period, but I have lesson plans completed through March 15. I talked with the person who will be the long-term sub for my classroom and told her I would let her do the lesson plans for the remainder of the year. That way, she can use mine to get acclimated to the class and to the curriculum without worrying about plans and copies. Then she can ease in to the position.

I am so lucky!!!
What a gentleman! Love that!!
