Hello all. Monday is down! Not much going on here. The Christmas bug has got me! I ran by target earlier and they were putting out Halloween merchandise, it made me realize Christmas "blossoms" are about to pop up soon! Can't wait!

my former boss from Subway called today, wants me to come back to work there. I could sure use some extra hours so I think I will take some hours there too. At least it is work I will not have to train for.

Good evening!
The girls first day of school went well. They all seem to be pretty tired tonight. Its going to take some time before we get use to waking up so early in the mornings again. But it always takes time to get back in to the swing of things. I'm going to turn in soon, I am so tired. I woke up at 3:00 a.m. and couldn't fall back to sleep. I kept looking at the clock every 5 minutes. I'm hoping that doesn't happen again.
We took a ride to Best Buy this afternoon to pick up an iPad for my daughter to use at her nursing program. They are very cool, I would love to have one for myself. And finally, my youngest took her road test today and passed. She is so excited. I now have three teenagers that drive. Eeek!
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful evening.
Goodnight!!

Love, love, love that cartoon! I recorded it on VHS nearly 20 years ago and it was always a favorite of ours. We watch it at least 10 times every year even up until now. "My name is Noel and I have a happiness"!
