Good Morning Christmas Lovers Around the World!!!!!!! It's going to be a chilly day here with a high around 52 degree's. I have to get some more cleaning done today before my niece's come in later tonight. I'm also thinking about doing some more baking. I'm thinking bananna muffins sound good for breakfast this weekend. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Glad that works for you! I share your frustration. For the past couple weeks, not every night, but several times, our Internet connection fails at some point during the evening and stays off for anywhere from an hour to overnight. It happened again last night. Restarting the modem and router, rebooting the computer, etc. don't have any effect. I haven't called the ISP support, because ... well, ask caninemom3 what a "goober" is. My last experience with them was so bad, I really stress about calling them again. I could give them up and switch ISPs, but I don't know if that would be jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. (Yes, I worry too much about small things.)

It's always neat when that happens! With me, it's always someone I'm supposed to know, but I'm so bad with names I can't remember. They're always, like, "you don't remember me, do you?" I'm so bad with names!

I'll hide with you. I've never been able to muster up much interest in sports on TV, other than golf.

That is cool about your friend!! Be careful with all of those turkeys!! We don't need you ending up like my brother in law.

I'm the same way. I constantly run into people I knew in scouts and I can never remember their names. Heck, sometimes I can't even remember my neighbors names.

Then today I had trouble at the bank trying to deposit wedding gift checks, followed by a huge fight with my mom which resulted in me storming out of the house. I am really upset and don't know what to do...hubs and I both believe what she said was uncalled for and there is just no reasoning with her when she's in a mood like that. Top all THAT off with the fact that I called and texted our wedding photographer again with no response still, and you've got one very unhappy person right here.

I guess I'm gonna go to bed and hope that tomorrow is a little better. Goodnight everyone.
I hope today is better!!!
