You are right: That is sweet!

I said, "They are Christmas cards from my Christmas friends". She looked real surprised and said, "Ohhhh, I like your Christmas friends"!!! I said, "I do too"!!! She is always so darn sweet!

Oooo. I like this color!

This is picture of the cinnamon. QVC does not have the Platinum Plus (6 buttons on the front) one available all the time because after we bought ours I wanted to buy my parents one and had to wait until they carried again. I also cannot find the Platinum Plus in any stores either! I wonder why! I guess they have them where you sell it but I can't find it here.

I love this machine!

If you have any animals, just think about what you would do to train them! And how you show them you love them.

I forgot to add that it was funny when Trixie turns the cello around and then turns herself around and asks if they are similar!!!

You certainly have the right touch with those students. I'd be at a total loss while they ran riot around me!

My sister is supposed to visit this Saturday. I hope so. We haven't seen each other since Christmas Eve. It would be wonderful to be with her again.

I am kind of excited. I found one of our local high schools has a community education program where you can enroll in various classes for a four to six week period. They have a couple of writing classes and I am going to enroll in one !! I am not sure anything can really help my writing but I think it will be interesting. I was hoping though that I would be able to go to the school for the classes but they are online.
Enjoy your visit with your sister!
I have taken a few courses too and always enjoyable. You will do good with the writing course.

Glad to be home from school. I had my Social Security phone interview today. It appears that I will get $617 the first month. Then my check will be offset by the "windfall" calculation. Yeah, right, my retirement is a windfall!!! Then I will receive $270 a month out of which they will deduct the $104 premium for Part B of Medicare. They will deduct more when I add Part F. So, at least the medical insurance will be paid for!

Can I just say that I hate comcast and I'm probably going to regret it but I just called and moved my phone service to them. They'll be out next tuesday to install it. It'll save me $70 a month so hopefully it works okay.
