I didn't realise how much till I signed in this morning I felt like I was entering the door to some secret magical place.......well actually it is!

Anyway , things have been rather hectic at my end. My husband has been unwell since the start of the year. So I have not had the time to visit you all as much as I would like. I can't actually believe so many weeks have gone by to be honest! It will soon be christmas again!

I am sorry this is only a short visit. I hope that all of you are well and I will visit again soon and try to catch up with more of the posts.

Take care my christmas angels!
xxxxx Sam
So nice to see you, Festive Spirit!!

Your husband is in my thoughts & prayers!!

XO

Good afternoon, MMC!

There is snow on the ground again. Looks very festive out right now.

I have a few things to get done today work-wise and then the rest of the day is mine. I have been dreaming of Christmas lately so maybe it is time to start on my notebook for this year!

Have a MERRY day!

Gotta run to an appointment shortly, but
Note to CM3: Write for yourself, and write for US. Stop worrying about whether it's "good" or not. That's up to the reader, not to some teacher who never met you. Don't worry about parts of speech or a "style." Be yourself. Don't let the class ruin you!

Good morning, MMC friends! How are you all? I am well. Enjoyed my night last night. I'm sitting right now and relaxing, enjoying a cup of coffee. It's snowing here. Blahhh...wish this stuff would stop. DH said we're supposed to get another big storm Monday/Tuesday 6-12 inches. I guess we shall see.

How is everyone else today? I hope you're all well. The kids are still at my in-laws. DH is teaching, so it's just Ella and I spending time with you guys. It's nice! I LOVE spending time with you guys! What does everyone have planned for tonight? I am not sure what we will do. Typically, we always do a family night on my weekend off, so we will probably do that tonight. Play a game, watch a movie, make popcorn, and order pizza or do something fun for dinner.

EA just turned 3 1/2 yesterday. She's growing too fast. I can't believe she's only 6 months off of being 4. DS will be 2 in July. Time flies when you're having fun!

Is everyone getting ready for Easter? I went and got my shopping done last week. I am just waiting for the rest of the kids stuff to arrive via shipment from Target. They're excited, as usual. I think for tomorrow, since it will be St. Patty's Day, I am going to do Lucky Charms, green eggs, and green milk for breakfast. I want to make it festive.

Well, I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. I am going to read more of the posts. I will check back later. God Bless and keep smiling! I am praying for any of you who need my prayers! Thinking of you all...

The first time she traveled as a family I asked her to do that and apologized for acting like a "mom" because I know she is an adult and responsible. She thanked me for being the way I am and had no problem letting me know that she is safe.

My son is 22 years old and recently graduated college. He still lives here but he NEVER goes out like other guys his age does. Even while in college the guys wanted him to go out and party but he said it's just not his thing. He is content hanging around the house and having his friends here instead. All they do is play video games. Lol! Work, sleep and video games is his only interest. I guess I never have to worry about him (for now)!

Anyway, normal to not feel comfortable until you hear from your kids no matter what their age is! =)
I even worry when I have to be away from my furkids for any reason. Nobody can care for them the way I do.....
