Well, I hope everyone has a terrific day today and remember, were in November now, the clock is ticking away and Christmas is getting close, and closer and closer.....
Speaking of the clocks ticking, do we turn the clocks back this weekend? Someone mentioned that at work the other night.

Your right! I forgot about mentioning that. I saw that as well in the Hagerstown Almanac last night, the clocks are turning back this Sunday.....

Good morning, everyone! How are you all doing? I am well. Just getting caught up on here and relaxing with DS.

How was everyone's Halloween? As I have been reading through the posts, sounds like your evenings went well. I did see briefly about Coach's post. Glad all is okay now! We had a fun night here. The kids had a blast. It rained and it was windy, but that didn't keep the kids spirits down. We also went to the fire station to visit DH at work. The fireman gave the kids some treats. They enjoyed that. They got a fire call, right before we were leaving, and DS just loved seeing them leave in action.

What are your plans for today? I don't have a whole lot planned. EA is at school, so I will be trying to keep DS entertained. I am going to fit something Christmassy into my schedule, since this is when Christmas on TV seems to really start picking up.

Well, I am off to read more of the boards. I will be on throughout the day. I will talk to you guys later on. Hope you all enjoy your day. Prayers for you all. Thinking of you all as well. God Bless and keep smiling!

Okay, I thought so. Fun. That means I have to work an extra hour Saturday night, BUT...that does mean I make an hour of time and half! There is always a benefit to that!

I know. DH acted like I was crazy and I said, "Yes, I'm pretty sure it's time to do that again already."

Happy November! Wow, what a morning.. we got hit with a DOWNPOUR as I was dropping poor Jude off at school. We were soaked! Noel and I planned to go grocery shopping after drop off, but we were so wet we had to come home and get changed. What a mess. I just hope Jude didn't get hit as bad as we did (I gave him the umbrella!)

I am just spending the morning cleaning and taking my Halloween stuff down. I need it OUT OF HERE to get ready for Xmas stuff! I got everything dusted, curtains cleaned, slipcovers are in the dryer... should I start sneaking things o ut?!?
