I know the feeling. I usually put mine up the first weekend of Nov., but I still haven't done it!

You remember a couple of years ago when Mark Martin had a wreck before he got on the track?

Thank you---the poor guy went back to bed after breakfast. The rest will do him good. I'll get him up for some late lunch in a little while. I'm just doing some laundry and working on a video project.

He's working so hard trying to get this house finished. The first time we renovated this house was when we bought it over 20 years ago. I think he forgets he's not in his 20's anymore. This was a lot of work for him to take on by himself!
Not too much going on for me. I wish I could decorate like so many of you are doing. There really isn't any point pulling everything out until my husband finishes. I'm kind of sad but I'm trying to be patient. This is the last time we will be renovating here and I know it will be worth it.
Anyway, the girls are all working so they will be in and out today. I will probably do some Christmas shopping. If I don't go out I will definitely do some shopping online. I made a nice long Christmas gift list to work off of.
I hope everyone is well and has a great Sunday!!!

Then it will be time for the last Nascar race of the year. I'm also going to unpack all of my Santa's and sit them on the dining room table so I can plan where they are going to go. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stay safe, buddy. I'll be thinking and praying for you all day!

I had a short visit to Hallmark yesterday. It was great to see all of their 2013 Christmas decorations on display. I did not have time to get to the Rideau Centre. I will sometime this week.

As for last night, it was a very close friend's 30th Birthday! We had a surprise party at his house. There were about 30 of us there. It was a real good time! He was truly surprised when he opened the door. I don't quite recall being at a surprise party before, so it was a lot of fun! Now, I must look forward to Christmas parties!

Well, I should do a few things and then grab some breakfast. Kim is actually still sleeping. I think she's doing her best to get a full 10 hours of sleep. She's good at that. I'm really hungry. Hopefully she awakens shortly. Also, I hope that this Sunday is much better than the previous two. The Packers need a win badly today and the ball is in the hands of Scott Tolzien. We'll see how it goes!

Have a great Sunday, everyone! For those dealing with crazy weather conditions, stay safe! And to all... MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
Stay safe and Happy Birthday to your friend!
