maybe that is what is wrong with my computer today, the internet keeps shutting down and then it tried to tell me that google was not a safe site to go on!

A Good Christmas Season Morning, everyone!

Much like a lot of the US, Ottawa has been hit with a warm-spell, showers and gusting winds of about 60km/h (40mph). At least I don't really have to be outside today! As for tomorrow, we shall see if I receive a phone call to teach.

I had a short visit to Hallmark yesterday. It was great to see all of their 2013 Christmas decorations on display. I did not have time to get to the Rideau Centre. I will sometime this week.

As for last night, it was a very close friend's 30th Birthday! We had a surprise party at his house. There were about 30 of us there. It was a real good time! He was truly surprised when he opened the door. I don't quite recall being at a surprise party before, so it was a lot of fun! Now, I must look forward to Christmas parties!

Well, I should do a few things and then grab some breakfast. Kim is actually still sleeping. I think she's doing her best to get a full 10 hours of sleep. She's good at that. I'm really hungry. Hopefully she awakens shortly. Also, I hope that this Sunday is much better than the previous two. The Packers need a win badly today and the ball is in the hands of Scott Tolzien. We'll see how it goes!

Have a great Sunday, everyone! For those dealing with crazy weather conditions, stay safe! And to all... MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Toronto Santa Clause parade is on today. We considered going but I woke with such a sore throat, we decided it would be better to just stay home.
Trying to drown it now and am starting to feel better. Besides, I lost my catchers mitt and refuse to catch anything that might make me sick!

He got some rest, but he says he coughed a lot during the night … I slept through it, which is unusual, 'cause I sleep pretty lightly. I think we're both just going to stay in and crash today.

We usually have 2 more stations switch to all Christmas, and we can hook up our MP3 players to the new car so we are all set for Christmas music wherever we go!!!
Wow, you ARE all set!

Although small movements shouldn't have set it off I think it was the budgie having a hissy fit... or an early visit from the big guy hisself
Oh, the mental picture this gave me made me laugh!

Thanks for the kind thoughts. I'm feeling pretty good except for a few sniffles, and being a little anxious. I've got a heavy workweek coming up, then Thanksgiving and the long weekend when we do gift-wrapping and cards and packages, and then I put up the tree and decorate it … I just can't get a cold myself right now! We'll just stay in today and take it easy.

I'm glad there were a lot of people there in the proper spirit! And I'm tickled to hear about the tickets you won!

They usually don't light it that early. Boy, I was wrong! Those people who gripe must be very few and very loud (making us believe there is a lot) because there were thousands of people out in there in the Christmas spirit!

While out there Wayne and I participated in a game with a local radio station. Wayne won and I figured it would be a t-shirt. Nope! They gave us a pair of front row tickets to an upcoming Christmas parade!

Here is a picture of the store front of Neiman Marcus in Downtown Dallas. This picture does not do it justice. The lights twinkle so in the picture it appears that some of the lights are burned out, kinda hard to get the picture with them all lit! It's very impressive walking up on it!

At one stage christmas was not part of my plan this year, as the dog has losted so much weight everyone thought the worst but somehow i knew it was,nt dont ask me how but i got a feeling..

Enough about me . Hows all of you been.. Any birthday i have missed really hope it was good one. and hoping you had a nice halloween honest i thought about you,s a lot but guess just did not want to burden ppl with my problems . i had one mmc which made up for it , a real star ~} any thing inportant please let me know

Hope all frubabes are doing good and hope all new babies are good to coach !!
Feel bad about missing out on so much on your lifes this pass few months
