Good evening! I hope that everyone had a relaxing Saturday. :]

I received an e-mail saying that I have been offered a position to volunteer at Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games this summer!



It was announced that all the offers will be sent out by the end of November. Once December begun, I stopped expecting for my offer. However, the actual e-mail came yesterday, so I was very surprised when I found it in my inbox. And very exciting too! The competition for voluntary positions was very fierce. There were around 65,000+ applicants overall, and 25,000 of them were invited for the interview. I attended mine in late July, and now there will be 15,000 volunteers. It is gonna be a HUGE sport event! I also found out that my Scottish friend is also going to volunteer, so I am happy about that too. I am actually quite proud of myself for leaving so many other applicants behind and becoming the one of those lucky 15,000 who will contribute towards organizing such a significant event!

I am sorry for quite a long post but my excitement is now over the top. ^^

Anyway, I will try to go to sleep because it is nearly midnight here.

Best wishes to all!

Congratulations!!!

You both are in my thoughts.

I'm so sorry your husband is still in a lot of pain, I will keep him in my prayers.

I use to have a cat that did the same thing. She would jump right in that tree before we even had it decorated.

Good evening,

I am all caught up now, I can't figure out why a Christmas website is so busy in December.

Busy day today, day off tomorrow. I only have 5 more days off until Christmas.

Just relaxing watching The Santa Clause 3, everyone else is asleep. My wife fell asleep before the boys did and they went to bed at 8pm.

I am tired so I will be heading to bed soon, I hope to get the big tree decorated tomorrow.

Good night, everyone!!!!

Good evening!
I was able to go to the mall again today. I would like to finish my shopping over the next couple of days. The problem is every time I cross something off the list, I add something else on it. I need to stop doing that.
My daughter went to the city today with her friends and had a good time. I asked her to send me some pictures but she told me her phone died. So when she got home I asked to see pictures of the Rockefeller Center tree. She took a ton of pictures but they were all selfies with the tree in the background! Ridiculous facial expressions and all.
We still don't have our tree up yet. My husband was too busy, he was on a job all day. Maybe tomorrow. I gave up on decorating this year but we have to at least have a tree up!
