I plan on winning this one!! There is no way I am waiting until December 1st! I can barely have them out over a month that way!
My Christmas mugs are never put away! I don't think Nov 1st is being unreasonable!! Dec 1st = way too late!!! Good luck!

Hi Cetacea,

Thank you for your kind words.
Real estate isn't working out, I just can't afford it right now. They say it could be a year or more before I make anything, and I can't afford the monthly fees, dues, and marketing costs. And it's not really what I was expecting. I am disappointed but moving on. The grand plan is to find a job that I can still use my license for, like a real estate coordinator, but so far there's nothing available around here for that. Fingers crossed, but I just need a consistent income at this point. Thinking of what I want to do with my life in the mean time.

That is rough. Hope you can get some napping in today, friend. Hope your head feels better!

I don't have a way to buy any eggnog around here. At least I have found a black tea (from Nordfriesland, Germany) with eggnogg taste (or as they call it "Eier-Grogg"), which is very yummy. Too bad I don't have any of it here at the office. You made me want to drink a mug full of it now!

I'm so sorry that it didn't work out. The economical situation in your country is as difficult as it is here. I understand your need for a stable income. You are in my prayers and I hope you'll find a good (and interesting) job soon.

Afternoon or morning to most of you. Happy Pines Day!

Not much sleep last night, I kept hearing noises and baby was up at 5:30am ! It's still raining here and getting colder!

I have aches and pains everywhere today lol. I can't even face going on the cross trainer. Anyway I'm just finishing up a few things before I collect my son from school but I wanted to share good news. DH got the job, thank you for the kind wishes and prayers, means a great deal.

Hope you all are having a good day. See you all later at the Pines! First round of drinks are on me!
