I'd like to be someplace else with all of you instead of here today. With mugs of cocoa around a large Christmas tree.
Thinking of you~

I wish we could all meet around a Christmas tree too!!

You sneaky boy, you!!! You waited up just long enough to be the 35,000th poster. You knew those tickets would make their way somewhere in the major awards, LOL. You barely beat out Binger!

I don't know if anyone has ever watched Friends...but if you recall the Barbados episode where Monica's hair went poofy/frizzy - that was me after going outside

I am feeling a little bit better today. Just hoping it goes away before vacation. I am not really looking forward to the plane ride. I don't mind it when there are two seats across and I can sit next to my family member, but I hate three which this plane has. I always feel crammed and like I have zero space.

I still have so much packing to do...yikes!!! I am so afraid I am going to forget something, even though I made a list and have been crossing off as I go.
I guess if you forget it, you buy it! I'm glad you are feeling a little better! I uderstand what you are talking about re: humidity! It's terrible today!
Packing is the fun part...it's the unpacking... UGH! Lol! But we dont' want to think about that yet!!!! Have a good day!

I will go with you to that place with mugs of cocoa & coffee & an extra large Christmas tree!!!
Good luck finding a new TV!

It sounds like a sweet, happy ending for Maggie & her family!! That's wonderful!

Hope you feel better!!
We have a very high pollen count here, and it's affecting me too.

Have a great day, girlie!!

Thank you ... we found one we like the other night, but we're waiting until the tax holiday starts to buy it. Hope there's one in stock when we get there. We're going to try to get there early.
