I have way to much to do tomorrow and one of those things includes an hour drive each way to go with my sister and niece's on a polar express train ride. So I really don't need the roads to be bad. Thankfully there's not much on my agenda for today. I just need to do some things around the apartment and then run to the grocery. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!
How cool that you are going on a Polar Express Ride - I would love to do something like that with my grandnieces/nephews! I hope the weather cooperates for you - have fun and be safe!!!

This means that not only does it all fall back to me, but the expansions we've developed in the last 3 years as well.

Then he tells me that someone else that we work with has arranged a Vegas style show to take place starting in Dubai next summer, touring internationally and he's one of the performers on it.

Then he tells me that this same person has been working on a project revolving around the two of us moving to where he lives to become his partners in his business and that's about to come to fruition. This will also be taking place next summer.

The last two - I knew were possibilities as we'd discussed it in the past year, but the partner dissolution - that was new. It's kind of a lot to absorb in 20 minutes while your standing there feeling overwhelmed with Christmas lights in your hands. LOL

I hope things work out regarding the businesses and that the rest your day is MERRY!

Good evening, MMC family! Just getting ready to eat dinner! Hope you're all having a great evening and staying warm. Winter weather is on the way here, with lots of snow.

I have to work tonight and DH is at the Penguins game, so my MIL is going to stay with the kids until he gets home. Nothing new to report here.

I hope you all have a great rest of your evening and you have safe travels if you have to go out in this weather.

I'll talk to you all later on. God Bless and keep smiling!

You're welcome! Glad you enjoyed them. I kept trying to capture one where the sprays of water were breaking through the ice like geysers. It was gorgeous! But I couldn't find my gloves when I stepped out of the truck and my hands were frozen to the point of not being able to operate the camera. Though my one favorite is of my husband standing on one of the frozen dune like waves, the spray is in front of him, so it's between us, the lake is behind him and he's texting. YES I'm serious! ROFL I was looking back through the pictures and asked, "What are you doing there? Are you texting??" He looked, "I guess, I was either texting or posting something on Facebook or Twittering." ROFLMBO Of course. I know if I was standing on a dune of ice on Lake Erie - that would be the first thing I would think to do. LOL

Although - in spring of 2011 we summitted Pike's Peak in Colorado. Okay, I did - I posted pics on Facebook from the summit. LOL Honestly, mostly because I was just impressed that I still had reception up there. I was taking pics and saw bars and thought, "There's no way!!" Sure enough - on Pike's Peak, Sprint still had 2 bars of connectivity. LOL I had to - I couldn't resist it. LOL

Hope you have a good evening at work and may the Penguins win (if that's who he's rooting for LOL) I would be, but then I'm from Pittsburgh. LOL Could you send some of that winter weather south? I'm trying to stay cool. My AC is still running. It was 84 today.
