Good afternoon everyone! I'm trying so hard to cut back on how much coffee I drink. I am so addicted to those flavored coffee creamers and I know they can't be good for me. Only had one cup today, but I could really, really go for a cup right now! My daughter picked up a couple of job applications yesterday, I'm going to take her to drop them off in a few minutes. She originally told me that she wasn't happy with her present job, but she confessed and told me she gave notice already. She told me her supervisor is picking on her. Not sure what to believe, grrrrrr. Anyway, hoping she finds something soon, my husband kind of has a rule that you can't quit unless you have something else lined up. I'm not telling him yet, lol. Hoping she finds something soon! Hope everyone is having a great day so far!!!

Oh I know about the flavored coffee creamers. Around Christmas I get the pumpkin spice and a lot of the other ones...I don't even drink coffee except at the holidays...
My dad also had rules like your hubby does...and I remember in high school even we had to have jobs if we wanted a car. Looking back my dad could have bought us all new cars with cash if he wanted...Luckily he wanted to teach us good work ethics..I hated it then but am so grateful now..We all had used second hand cars but they were nice too. And we took care of em cause we worked for every penny of it! I hope your Dtr find a better job soon!

I don't know what the laws are in Canada, but in the U.S., if you're an "employee at will" (I think was the term), not under a contract with specific terms, either the employer or the employee can quit with no reason required. I know this because Mr. was terminated some years ago for a health issue that required a couple months' recuperation, during which he couldn't do the work he was hired for. So they dumped him. We were going to take the employer to court until our lawyer explained the facts to us. It was a tough time.

This is slightly off-topic, but it still makes me seethe. When I was diagnosed with cancer in the 1980s, I had to immediately undergo a week's worth of tests at various medical centers to "stage" the cancer so doctors could plan its treatment, so I was away from the office for that workweek. When I got back, my boss's boss sat me down and said, "You know, we could terminate you for being absent more than three days without prior approval." I HAD notified them where I was and why. They didn't terminate me, but I was aghast at their tactlessness when I was still struggling with the diagnosis of a life-threatening disease. And they made me use vacation time for chemo days.

You HAVE to win this so we can see how you decorate it! Best of luck on the essay!

Someone should run a contest where the person or family who decorates the house most beautifully for Christmas wins the house.

My mom and my brother called me from the park while the guys were playing (they had our kids), and I could hear the band in the background. They were doing pretty good, they just needed another guitar LOL!
I hope I can get a few things done on the Camaro this week. I would have sworn we'd be finished with the car by now, but we're pretty close to cranking it now.
I hope y'all have a great day!

So glad to hear nancy is feeling good again . maybe there will be another chance for you to play with the guys

Brandi just came home and it looks like she had a bad Monday. I have begun to hate late semesters...that is when her life get stressful and then in turn mine does as well. All of her students cramming in extra credit at the last minute. The list goes on and on.. My hats are off to any and all teachers out there. They are truly special people. So we are going to pop open a good bottle of wine and order Indian cuisine. (not that we have to have booze to handle a bad day) but that is what is on the menu for tonight. We might get in the hot tub later then it's off to bed...If I don't get a chance to come back tonight I want to tell everyone to have a good evening and we have Monday over with finally!!!
