Yesterday was my day off, so I don't go back to work until tonight at 11. DH is at work today, then he is working overtime tonight. The kids are at daycare and preschool, so it's just me here.

What's new and exciting? Nothing really new going on here. I've just been very busy, so like I said, nothing new! My kids are growing like weeds and I am loving them up every second. I have been doing some shopping for Valentine's Day and Easter for them already. Some of you may be laughing at me, but my kids still deserve something for these holidays well - in my eyes I think they do.

We're going to get more snow here today. It has been snow flurring on and off for the past 2 hours or so, but it is supposed to pick up here soon. We're supposed to get anywhere from 2-4 to 3-6 inches today to tonight. Oh boy!

Well, I am off to read some of the Countdown and make some lunch. I think I am going to do a grilled ham and cheese and chicken noodle soup.

Hope you're all enjoying your day and all doing well. I miss you all greatly. Praying for any of you who need my prayers and thinking about you all! God Bless and keep smiling!
Hi, Sugar ~ I hope you have a good night at work! God Bless you and yours, too!

Many of us gather here on the evening of November 12 for our annual hour by hour, then minute by minute countdown to the start of the Season at midnight Eastern Time. It's something we really look forward to and is truly great fun!

It is a blast, MerryNoel. You will love it! You can read past years' comments even though those countdowns have closed.

Our big snow event, all we got out of all the hype, was an inch...and that's it. I'm bummed! Old man winter must of ran out of gas as he crossed over the mountains.... At least it covered the ground just a little bit....

I cry sometimes, too ~ I hate that there are days she is in so much pain. Palmer is a hoot. When she is playing and stalking something, usually a paper ball, I hear the theme from Mission Impossible ~ her moves fit that music perfectly. I agree, I am lucky to have them!

Good evening, MMC!

I hope everyone is staying warm. It is still quite cold here, but by Monday it is supposed to be in the 40s. Unfortunately the forecast also calls for ice ~ ick!!!
Finally got around to asking the techs at the store where I bought my computer why I was having so much trouble with modems ~ it was suggested I call the phone company. That makes sense as the modem I bought worked on my computer at my cousin's house ~ they have Charter for their phone company. If that is the problem here, I'm not sure there will be a way to fix things. I really don't think they will change the wires just because I am having a problem. Oh, well ~ I'm sure I will figure something else out, it will just take time.

Have a MERRY evening!
