Good morning everyone!

Just hanging around for a bit today. There was a call out this morning for a school where I have previously taught. Unfortunately, the assignment was taken prior to reaching me. Hopefully I will receive a call tonight. I'm really trying to work at least 12 of the next 14 days. It is possible, but it is beyond my control.

The snow is fluttering today. It's making quite a beautiful setting. As for my plans today, Kim wants me to go to Target to pick up a new bathmat. Perhaps I can find a Christmas one, too. She must have meant two - not just one! Not a whole lot else is happening, really. I still have to go to Tinseltown to find a few things, but I think that may have to wait until another day. Perhaps tomorrow - after work, of course.

Temperatures here are pretty mild. There was a freezing rain and fog warning this morning, but that was quickly lifted as the weather system seems to have moved toward Montreal. Hopefully everything is OK there.

Well, folks, we're only three weeks away from Christmas Week. The Christmas Season has been flying by. We need to really enjoy it. And, I am sure that everyone here is doing so! Have a great Monday, everyone! Merry Christmas!!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! Is it really 11am already? Where has this morning gone? Well it's going to be a decent day here with a high in the mid 40's. So I might go for another short walk. I also have a lot of stuff around the apartment to do and some emails and messages to get caught up with. I want to check out some of the sales online too. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!

Good afternoon, MMC family! How are you all doing today? I am well. Just getting caught up on laundry and keeping the kids entertained.

What are you all up to? Not much going on here today. DH is working. He's working 48 hours straight, which I particularly don't like - he makes me nervous when he does that - I get worried about his sleep, but he reassures me if he does get busy, they would let him nap if he needs it. I was off yesterday and go back to work tonight. DH will be working until tomorrow morning and he will be off then for 4 days. I will be looking forward to that!

Yesterday, I took the kids to see Santa. EA did well, actually sitting on Santa's lap and getting a picture, so sorry CAH, no picture like last year! DS however, wouldn't even go near him. He screamed as soon as he saw the big guy. Later on in the day, we went with my mom and did a Santa train. The kids really enjoyed that and DS warmed up to Santa little more there, but still wouldn't get a picture with him. That evening, I just stayed the night at my parents, since I had only had 2 hours or so of sleep in 24 hours. I had about 30 minutes or so drive and I just didn't want to chance it, especially with the kids in the car.

Well, I am going to get the kids lunch and read the posts from today. I hope you're all well and having a great day! I can't believe how fast the season is going. I hope it slows down some. Talk to you guys later on! God Bless and keep smiling!

Happy Monday, everyone! I can't believe it's Advent already, but I'm glad it's here. Christmas is getting closer and closer. The house is almost entirely decorated, and all I have to do it put the finishing touches on. Well, have a great day!

Aaawwww love taking the kids to see Santa. Miss it. Noah would go just to humor me, but I don't think he'd do lap pictures. ROFL Don't think Santa would care for the 6'4", 195lb 17 year old in his lap either.

Hope you have a blessed day and your husband finishes his shift easily.
