I haven't had it for many years, I guess, so I'm now having a mug of tea with honey and some lemon. Kill those viruses! ^^ Best wishes to all!


Hope your throat feels better soon!!!

It's not just the alcohol use, he just doesn't care anymore and acts very irresponsible. Besides him, all my co-workers are great and have a great working moral.

We had our annual trade fair yesterday and the legendary party afterwards. I had soooo much fun! It is always great to meet people you only know through the phone. Specially if they are very nice.

Unfortunately it got quite late and on top of it I also slept bad. Therefore I'm very tired now.

At least I didn't get ****-faced drunk and woke up in a hotelroom without know how I got there or which hotel I'm in. As one of my co-workers managed to do. I really don't know what to say about that. It's not like the guy is twenty or something. He should be old enough to know not to behave like that.


Glad you had a good time at the party!!!! Drink lots of coffee today to get you through!!!

It sounds like your co worker may need some too!!! I hope he didn't do anything to bad while he was out of it!!!

I'm going to finish writing up a menu plan and grocery list for next week and then head to the butcher. I also need stop at Rite Aid, I have a list of things that we need.
Not too much else planned for today. I think I may do some online Christmas shopping for the girls since I have the time today. I will be on the lookout for free shipping. I was all set to place an order the other day and decided not to just because of the shipping cost. That makes me crazy!
I hope everyone is well and has a happy Friday!!!

The shipping cost on some sites is just crazy!!! I went to order a shirt for my niece the other day and they wanted $7 dollars to ship it!!!! The shirt was only $10 to begin with. Needless to say I canceled it.


Hope you enjoy your day!!!!

Hope you co worker can get the help he needs. I've seen enough of it in my own family to know that no one can force them to change their ways. They truly do have to hit bottom before they realize that they need to change their ways. It's to bad your managers can't fire him. That may be just what he needs.
