Nope. We call that hard cider over here and I don't drink it. Even though that might help keep me warm.

I bought the ebooks and realized that I bought two copies of the 100 Days to Christmas one. If you are interested, PM me and I will email it to you.

The New Year book begins, obviously, with the new year and goes through April. The review states: A daily dose of inspiration for navigating a new year, 100 Days of a New Year 2013 eBook is a journey that leads you through 100 days to a more-focused you. As a bonus, you get 75 lists and worksheets from ListPlanIt.com to guide and motivate you to set goals, better manage your health and finances, and clean and organize your home. There will also be a book on summer that begins in May.

I have found that planning and anticipation help me curb any letdown that might occur with any holiday. Stacey, are you going to the site tonight? I am going to try to be there.

Sweet!!!! I love the edelbrock valve covers.

We have 3 inches already and the snow hasn't been falling long. I heard that we will have 10 inches by tonight. My dad has to drive on the roads all day long for his job, so he'll be out for at least 4 to 5 more hours. He has plenty of years of experience, but that doesn't mean other people on the highway/roads can drive in this.

Praying that he stays safe.

Well, we just tried to hook up EA's tv that we got her for Christmas, from Walmart and of course it doesn't work. We called RCA and they said it sounds like it is Walmart's problem and we need to return it.

EA is now saying her "belly hurts" and she really is acting like it too. DH was sick two days ago and FIL has it today. It wouldn't surprise me. The junk is really going around here in are parts. Yuck!

It is snowing here in Central Pa. We're supposed to get 4 to 8 inches. I am glad I'll be staying at home with the kids. W'ell be playing with new toys, watching Christmas movies, eating popcorn, etc.! DH has to work, so we'll be spending time together tonight.

I'm currently taking toys out of their boxes and trying to find spots to put everything. The kids are going nuts with everything they got. I just love seeing their faces with everything.

I will be back later to chat. Talk soon! God Bless and keep smiling!

I hope you have a great time with the kids!!!

That's a bummer. I just got done charging my remote controlled helicopter and one of the rotors on it won't spin. So I guess it's going back.
