I hope you all have a great Sunday. We're headed off to church soon, but I hope to be on here later.

Anyone else listened to Christmas music to welcome November?


I'm pretty much strictly Christmas music now!!!

But friends, there is nothing like it! I'm glad to have an extra hour of it!

Today is going to involve cooking, cleaning, and getting ready for the work week. It's going to be a hectic week because I've got to go to meeting two different days about 3 hours away and then we have our "game of the year" on Thursday night...I'm already ready for next weekend thinking about it!

So, I'm off! I'm going to read the rest of the boards and see what's happening before I get up and get after it! Yall have a good day!

Hope you have a great week friend and stay safe out there on the roads!!

I've had some discomfort, but I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow for a meds refill. I am also going to see about Vitamin B injections. Tell me more about your new job!

Hubby and I attended a fund-raiser for the charter school in town last night. The food was good, and they raised probably close to $5000 for the school. They had a silent auction, and I bid on a 49ers basket that included two tickets to the last game in Candlestick. I almost got it, but the final bid was $500. I did bid on a Pomegranate Brandy Chocolate Raspberry Trifle and won it for $165. It came in a beautiful bowl and was excellent! Guess what's for dessert tonight? There were two of us who were bidding against each other. After I won, I offered to share a bite. After the auction, that same couple sat down with me to wait for their daughter, the principal of the school. They wanted my address so they could send me some pomegranates and Meyer lemons from their organic farm! How cool!

How the heck is everyone? I, myself am fantastic

Little update since July-- good tidings have been brought to my life this whole year! Amazing what happiness can do for you
- bought a 2013 Mitsubishi lancer, sports edition.. Woohoo traded in the g5 towards it, yes I feel a little sassy when I drive it LOL
- found a brand new, basement suite out in the country everything included!... For me & Ryan to live in
- Ryan moved here at the end of September (yay! No more long distance)
- now have a set schedule at work, which is mon-fri!! Still a fair bit of hours, but am thankful I now have a job that allows me to keep my bills paid & food in my belleh
- am very happy!
Things have been going really well for me (finally!) in all aspects of my life! Relationship great, family awesome, friends superb.. Life is just good! Now to get back on track with somewhere I have missed dearly in my crazy busy life! MMC!!!!

Went to port yesterday to pick up a little something near and dear to my heart... mom handed down her beautiful 7ft Christmas tree to me!!!
She's had it since I can remember and it's always been her pride & joy come christmas time! My grandma may end up a bit ticked and I know my sister was upset.. They've both been vying for it for as long as I can remember & I won't lie, I'm not completely innocent either when it comes to "who gets THE TREE?"... Somehow I get the honours (I am the oldest daughter.. That has to count for something right?), might just have to arm my home with security cameras & the occasional ninja now though.. Keep their pesky little mits off it! Hahaha
My mom usually went a little Clark griswald on it (yes a billion sparkling lights LOL).. So hopefully I can try to keep up with her tree decorating standards hahaha! Poor boyfriend won't be able to see the telly anymore if I follow mas footsteps muahaha, wait maybe that's a good thing!!!! Oh who am I kidding, I wanna watch the tube too!!! :d
I was planning on putting it up today, but I may wait till next weekend seeing as the little amount of decorations I do have for the tree... Are packed away in the storage closet:/ ( and I gotta pick up more!!)

How's everyone else been?

Good morning! Sighhhhhh....I was so looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend for a change. But, instead, I woke up to having to repair a leaking sink and I just got a phone call from my brother and he just informed me that they just found my father passed away on his couch. My brother stopped down there to visit on a whim and made the discovery. He's down there at the house with the police right now, so I'm going to head over and consult and provide comfort for my grandfather (who is 95 and my father was his only child).

Always something.....I'll talk to ya all later tonight~

So sorry to hear that, Xmastidings. How old was your father? Thinking of you and the rest of your family.

What a good way to spend your Saturday! And yes, winter is really getting more and more wintry and I love it! :]

I know a lot of people do this online or at the dinner table - every day during the month of November, you're supposed to say something that you are thankful for. It can be big or small, serious or not so serious - anything that you appreciate. It's such a great way to bring some positivity into your day! I figured we could all post daily and say something that we are thankful for, or we could just edit our original posts and add to it each day.

Plus it's a fun way to lead up to Christmas....by the time we're done it'll be December!
I think it's a very good idea. I would be in too. :] I always try to find at least several things to be happy about every day and I always write them down in my journal but I would still love to share them with everyone on MMC.

Had a great day of celebrating my sons 26th birthday.
I got the cakes done to a point where all I have to do is add the decorations, they do not have to be delivered until 3:30 tomorrow so that gives me lots of time to finish them.
Going to be a cold night, will feel like -9c (15f), time to get another blanket!
It seems that weather is getting colder so quickly in your area! It's so Christmassy!

And we are moving into a smaller house!
So there is a lot of things we have to give away...

My daughter has started on some more medicine - shots (injections?) in her thigh.
Got her first one at the hospital on Thursday.
And now I have to set them twice a week! And I hate needles!
Im setting the first one tomorrow, and my hands
are shaking just thinking about bringing that needle into her skinny thigh!
Guess it will be easier with time....?

I will try to reed the last pages here


Have a great SUNDAY!
I'm sending my best wishes your daughter's and your whole family's way. <3

Yay! I think it's such a great reward for doing your chores. :]

Good evening everyone! I haven't been on for almost two days and I had so many posts to catch on. I'm glad to read that so many of you have already started decorating for Christmas. I have started to imagine different places and houses decorated for the season and it made me smile. ^^ Me and few other girls went to winter fair on Saturday. It took place in a small town Castle Douglas which is not so far from the place I live in. It is quite shame we weren't allowed to take pictures but the fair was very nice. Lots of vintage crafts which could make great Christmas presents, and lots of local producers presenting their own bakery, sweets, etc. We also wanted to walk around the town a little bit more but the weather got miserable. It got too windy and very rainy, so we ended up drinking hot chocolate at one of the cafes. I'm still planning to go to Castle Douglas again once it gets closer to Christmas. I saw streets and many shops already prepared for the Holiday and I bet they all should look even more spectacular as Christmas approaches.

I'm sorry for such a long post. I hope you all are having a relaxing evening. Best wishes to all!
