I can't wait to see the stuff in stores, I think I head to Kmart almost everyday I have off during November & December to look at their stuff.
I am sure today is going to be a long day.


Have a great day all!
Xmas, I hope your day goes by fast!

Good luck, Ryan! Glad you didn't have to ask off just for the job interview! Let us know how it goes!

It's a short notice and they said the vacancy came up unexpectedly and asked if I would be interested in still interviewing. Prayers would be greatly appreciated.

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and I hope to drop by the Pines tonight! Crown told us (perhaps warned us) that Carl was going to be twice as entertaining! I'm not sure we could handle that, but might as well try!

She mentioned that she wanted to go to Sephora so maybe I will take her there to buy some new makeup. My girls love that store. I need another cup of coffee before I do anything else!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

That's good. It's really clouding up here now!

Why don't you go get Boo and present her to your SIL?
That would be a great idea IF the cat were.. uh... normal! She's a little - looking for the right word - unfriendly (but she might warm up) & my SIL wants to make sure she will at least let her pet/snuggle with her a little bit before she takes her home! She would probably be great at my SIL's very quiet house!!!
