Oh well I am going to go to bed as soon as it is over with. Jordan and James are already asleep so I hope they sleep until 6 am when I have to get up. I hope everyone had a great weekend and I will talk to y'all in the morning! Sleep well!

I never really thought about it like that but now that you mention it, you're right.

Goodnight!!!!

Good evening!
I took a ride to the outlets earlier, still not many signs of Christmas. The Christmas Tree Shop was the only store where I saw some Christmas decor. I wanted to take a few pictures but my daughter started to whine about how embarrassing I am. I would like to go back there soon, by myself. Anyway, my daughter handed a few job applications in to some stores and already has an interview set up for Friday. Hopefully she will find something soon. We got her in the car but she has to put the gas in it.
I'm going to turn in soon. I'm so tired and I have to wake up early. I hope everyone is well and had a great weekend.
Goodnight, sweet dreams!

I say that every year to my wife when we watch that.

I wonder if it has something to do with expectations. Like the bosses at work, they have higher expectations on people that do their job and hold them to higher standards. You can get a list of 12 items, and you get 11 done all they do is harp about the one task that wasn't done. When they give the same list to a slacker employee and they get 2 of 12 done, it is "way to go!" "great job today!"

They have the higher expectations on Clark than they do for Eddie, so they expect more from Clark and his family, and expect nothing from Eddie's.


or maybe I have been thinking about that too much

Does anyone remember the Christmas cartoon from 1975 (I believe) called The Tiny Tree?

I just found it & it brings back so many magical Christmas memories!!

I was able to post it on FB easily...wow! Would love to find it on DVD one day.
