I know January is supposed to cold, but I'm rather enjoying this sunny, 73 weather!

Hey! Would you all just leave me the heck alone! I am trying to get some chores done around here!

You know I am kidding! This is actually a compliment to all of you at MMC. I rather be here than doing my list. It's a very nice distraction but I really need to get back to work!

I will not be back to check in for 2 more hours. Let's see if I really make it that long without having MMC withdrawals!

Break out the whips and wild boars!

(The term “Cracker” is not what you think.)

I'm back to work today after being home sick Thursday and Friday (and the weekend, too). I'm finally feeling a little better, and I hope I can plow through some of these towers of paperwork that I found waiting for me. That's the only thing about working in a small office that I don't like. The other girls would like to help me out, but there are only 3 of them and they are busy with their own work. Oh well, looks like extra hours, and extra cash, for me!

All my Christmas stuff is still up, because I was too sick to take it down. Guess it'll be up till Saturday, at least.

I would rather it be cold. Last winter was a lot nicer than this one. We have only had 3 inches of snow and 1 snow day so far. We had had over 2 feet this time last year. The forecast is finally calling for some seasonal temps stating Thursday.

OKAY, I LIED! I didn't make it for 2 hours without popping in! I still feel so wiped out from last week and from work yesterday. Taking an early break but will get right back to work in a few minutes! =)

Mrs. Hilda should start her own show! I bet she can say "ya'll" real well!

I bet you are excited about your new adventure!

OK I must have missed that sorry...
You know what is funny about me loving Paula Deen. I can't think of one thing she makes that I can eat!!! It's just stupid food allergies but everything she cooks looks really good. I still enjoy watching her shows. She has a very fun and sweet personality!

Don't be sorry for missing the post! I feel like I miss a lot on here. This is a very busy thread!

I hope you feel better soon!

Monday (ugh ...)---Just checking in during a lull in the action at the office. One page at a time ... I need a bookmark to remind me where I left off. A long list of little to-do's at home that I hope will get shorter this week.

Once you get into the regular routine of it, you'll be fine. We're all behind you!
