Hope your headache goes away soon, and that your Mom's follow-up goes well!!

Have a great day, CS!!

At least Brockville is only about an hour train ride/drive from Ottawa...It's an easy travel.

No plans for tonight. I will probably go to the gym at my normal time and then see what is happening afterward. Kim is in Toronto for a bachelorette party, so I'm free to roam if I want to. We'll see what happens.

I hope everyone is having a great Friday... and ready for a monumentous milestone celebration on Sunday. 3/4 to the Christmas Season! It's a good thing that my two new blu rays (Elf - I wanted to upgrade from DVD) and Polar Express arrived in the mail yesterday. Perfect timing!

Have a great day, everyone!
I hope you get the job!!! Fingers crossed!!! Did you watch Elf & PE?

My husband finished installing all of the wood floors and will begin to sand them tonight. The next few days are going to be interesting. We have friends that are letting us have their camper to park in our driveway until the floors are finished. I guess we will try and make do with that for as long as we can. We'll see how it goes. I'm trying not to panic, lol. I'm not happy about the whole thing but I want it done now before the girls start school. I'm hoping the kids will be able to stay with their friends for a day or two to make it a little bit easier on them. I also have two cats and two dogs to deal with. We are going to pack up what we think we will need and I am trying to get all of my laundry finished. I was writing out a grocery list earlier but I realized I better put off my food shopping. I will take it day by day. Wish me luck!
I will pop in when I can!
Sounds like an adventure!!! Good luck!!!

What are your plans for tonight? I have to work, so I don't really have anything planned. DH is out of town. He's teaching, so my sister and her boyfriend took the kids for the night and for the day tomorrow. They went to a county fair and they are going to a amusement park tomorrow. They should have a lot of fun. Tomorrow evening, we all plan on getting together for pizza for dinner.

Well, I am off to try to get some rest. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your evening and the start of your weekend. Thinking of you all. God Bless and keep smiling. Talk to you all tomorrow!
Hope you had a good weekend - even though you had to work. And I hope your kids had a blast!!!

Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

It's a nice day today; I have all my windows open with a breeze blowing through. I have to use a lot of paperweights, but it's worth it!

I had a hectic weekend working on my part-time business, but I think I'm caught up for a couple weeks. I came to work this morning hoping for a break, but then two consulting engineers on two different jobs called to drop monkey-wrenches in my two largest, current jobs. No offense to you, Xmastidings, but consulting engineers drive me bananas! LOL

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good morning folks. I'm off work today and loving it! I hope you all are having a great day.

Snowflake, I love the new pic of you and Harlowe! At least I think it's new. I hope little Harlowe is doing good and Happy and Holly say hi.

Star, I hope your headache goes away!

Not sure if she posted here in the forum or not but I received a message from Trackrebel. She's doing good, but her notebook is broke, so we may not hear from her for a bit.

ok, heard that a local coffee shop is looking for part time workers, so I am going to apply and see is I can get in for 10 to 20 hours a week. If they will work with what I am working now I can finally have full time hours between the 2 jobs. Now to find the energy to do it!

The kids go back to school today so a change in the schedule for me. I will just have my granddaughter until my grandsons get out of school. I have her signed up with ABCmouse to get a head start on learning. She just started on it last week and doing very well.

Have a wonderful day my Christmas friends! =)

Hope the kids enjoy school and that your granddaughter keeps doing great!!!

Thanks for the update about track- I've seen her on FB, but it's good to know that she's just having some technological issues, and fine otherwise!
