Just getting settled at work. Counting down the seconds until Christmas break starts for me. it will start next weds the 18th. I will go back in the New Year on the 6th(mon) I look forward to spending 2 weeks at home with my family. I give up vacation time in spring and summer so I kind of hoard it all for October and December as much as I am allowed too. Anyways Brandi has decided she wants to go back to teaching next year and she wants to teach in a private catholic school setting and she already has interviews set up in Jan. She wants the boys in preschool already...by next Fall they will be almost 2 and 3. I guess it's never too early to start educating oneself huh?(I am the prime example of the consequence of not starting at all all joking aside I hope they do good in school and I hope Brandi will like her new teaching job if she gets the position. I just can't believe we are already talking about school for them!!!
Oh I better get busy...I am sipping new peppermint tea I found at the local grocery this morning.. it has taken me forever to find this particular brand!!! I love peppermint tea!! Have a good morning everyone!

That is awesome that you have a two week break to look forward to. Good luck to Brandi, I hope she finds the perfect job. I'm sure your boys will do great in school. My girls loved preschool, it was much harder on me than it was on them!

Just winding down visiting MMC and watching "Home Alone 2."

I should catch some shut eye soon.


Good night, everyone.
So glad to hear that you got your vacation approved and you have that to look forward to!

Good morning!
It is chilly here this morning, we have temperatures in the upper teens and we will have a high of 27 degrees today. I'm debating if I should walk the dogs or not. This is a little too cold for them, even with their little jackets on.
I'm using my crock pot again today, I just threw together chicken cacciatore. It has been a huge help lately since I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas. I am going to shop til I drop again today. I hope I finish. I need to start wrapping. I have been buying gifts and shoving them in my bedroom closet. It's going to take me awhile to organize all of it and wrap everything.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's freezing here. It's 3 degree's right now with a wind chill of -9. The high is only going to get to 13 and the wind chill will probably stay below zero all day. So needless to say, I'll be staying inside. I have some work to do on the computer but right now, I'm just sitting here sipping on my coffee and watching Miracle on 34th street. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!

I then went to 7 more stores all of which were either overpriced or sold out. I'll try again in the morning.

I got back to the house and was ready to get to work decorating and making presents when my mother in law called and asked me to come down to her house with my laptop to help her. While she was in New Orleans visiting her daughter her wallet was stolen. She found out that they ran up to charges on her debit card, credit card, Sears charge card, as well as the credit card of the elderly woman for whom she is a private duty home health care nurse. She was told to keep the card in order to buy groceries and household supplies for the patient. When they stole her wallet they also obviously got her drivers license, and her Social Security card. I spent the afternoon down there with my laptop trying to fix everything for her and order new cards and replace everything.

By the time I got back to my house I decided the only intelligent thing to do was sit in front of the Christmas tree with some hot chocolate and watch Home Alone, and Home Alone 2.

I'm so sorry to hear this happened to your MIL. That had to be horrible. Hopefully everything gets worked out. Hope your day in the end, ended well.
