Hello, everyone! The year is getting short!

Haven't heard anything about the office closing early today, but I have hopes. Cross your fingers. We're going out to eat with some friends tonight and will give them their Christmas gifts. (We usually get together with them after Christmas.) Then a three-day weekend---yay!

Went to the supermarket last night for Chex Mix fixin's (homemade Chex Mix is a must for our New Year's Eve movie marathon), and there were big displays of various brands of Christmas tea on sale. I couldn't find Christmas tea earlier in the season---the shipments must have come late.

I got a nice wrist watch for Christmas, but had to take it to Macy's last night because I discovered that the security device was still attached. Had to go to two departments to get it detached, because the watch department doesn't have the tool that opens the device ... huh? Had to take it over to handbags. Thank goodness I had a gift receipt. Can you imagine? "Hi, this is a gift, but I need the security tag removed ..." "Nice try, lady."

Check Amazon - I was looking at the chai tea on their site and although you have to buy 6 boxes to get the deal, it is less than half what it costs in my area - even on sale.

My granddaughter has 2 brothers and I was thinking the same! They love to do "kung fu" moves with dolls and stuffed animals and I would see the same with the doll. I have a stuffed animal of mine that I had since I was a little girl. I do allow my 2 year old granddaughter to play with it because she is so gentle and caring with it. When my grandsons come over I put it away. That stuffed animal would turn into an "action hero" and end up torn!

How on earth did it make it out of the store without setting off the alarm??? I am glad you finally got it removed. =)

Today I am relaxing at home until my friend gets done work at 5, then her and I are going to hang out and catch up. What is everyone doing on the eve before new years eve?
