I did that when I got home, and it looks like I will let him know I am interested tomorrow. If I do get this new position I will get a significant raise, work mornings until mid afternoon so I would have dinner with my family every night, but the thing that scares me a little is I would be in charge of half the stores inventory that comes in and goes out, big responsibility. I am sure I can do it though. Only 4 more days until vacation.

Have a good night to all the fellow Christmas Nuts out there.
Congratulations on the offer! Here's hoping the promotion fits you well!

You are very welcome Crown!!!!

Good morning everyone... i stopped into our local library last night and was going through their sale table. I found Christmas magazine and a Christmas story book on sale for 10 cents each. So last night after the kids went to bed I was browsing through the magazine. Some cute decorating ideas and receipes were in there.

The yucky heat and humidity went away and is suppose to be gone for the next few days. I shut off the AC and open up the windows! Was very nice and breezy this morning. Loving it!

Have a great day!

Good morning, everyone!!

It's another cool and overcast day here in Ottawa. Temperatures are only supposed to reach about 18C... That's right, a cool 64F. It shall be cool now, but it appears that the heat and humidity will return on Saturday. Temperatures are expected to reach 100F with the humidex! Of course, these temperatures will not affect me any. I leave for my trip to Prague, Czech Republic tomorrow afternoon. Temperatures in Prague should be about the same, but I am hoping the humidity will not be as bad. We shall see!!

I still have plenty of things to do today. My camera would not turn on yesterday. I charged the battery and it still would not turn on. Suffice to say that - for some reason - it has quit on me. Perfect timing, too. I cannot have the trip of my lifetime without a camera. Therefore, I will have to go to Best Buy today and see if I can purchase a new camera. Kim is going to look into fixing my broken one while I am gone, but I have no time to do that right now. Thankfully, Best Buy has a decent sale on right now. I should be saving about $30. Every little bit helps for emergency expenses.

As for other things... I need to purchase a few other things. Also, Kim and I going out for dinner and a movie to celebrate our four-year anniversary tomorrow. She's a little angry that I am leaving on the anniversary, but I am doing my best to make up for it tonight. All this and I still have to pack!! It's a good thing that the train does not leave for Montreal tomorrow until 1:10!

I may be on and off here for the next 24 hours. Then, I will be gone for almost three whole weeks. That count is going to look quite sparse when I return!! Anyway, I hope everyone has a fantastic Wednesday! It's the middle of the week and the weekend will be even closer after lunch, especially for Canadians as tomorrow is Canada Day!! Enjoy yourselves, everyone! July is almost here!
