Good morning!
I woke up feeling a bit frazzled today. The time is flying by, I still have so much to do. I have a ridiculous amount of gifts to wrap. I can't even walk in my "walk-in" closet anymore, it is packed with presents. I swear it was easier when my kids were little, I got so much more done. My days revolve around everyone else and I just can't seem to get to do the things that I need to do. To top it off we are expecting snow today so it looks like I will be chauffeuring everyone around. The last thing I need right now is to deal with an accident (sorry for the rant, lol)
Anyway, Molly and Maggie have a groomer appointment this morning. I also need to run to the supermarket and CVS and I will try and keep up with my daily chores. I think I'm going to have to start staying up late to get this wrapping done. I'm just so tired at the end of the day, I'm getting old!
I hope everyone is well and has a great day!

I feel for you, friend.

I have one day off before the holidays- yikes! Will have to do all my wrapping, cleaning, and grocery shopping that day. Ahh!!

Hope we can both get everything done! Too bad we didn't live closer, we could help each other out. Then have a glass of wine, lol.

***** CHRISTMAS SEASON DAY 35 *****



Good Morning.

Closing in.
My, oh my.
We are really closing in!

Days to Christmas Day: 8 (ONE WEEK FROM TOMORROW!!)
(And that's almost close enough to hear the bells on Santa's sleigh!)

It was a tad warmer yesterday. Dry and sunny too.
(Hope that holds for tomorrow when I will proudly attend my oder niece's college graduation ceremony!)
We have started out here this morning at 38 degrees.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, Everybody!
Next-to-the-last 'Pines open house before Christmas is tomorrow.
Then next week -- oh, then next week!!

Good morning! I overslept a few minutes! UGh it looks like a few more inches of snow fell last night making the snowpack even deeper than it was. The outside temp is 2F! High today around27F with snow off and on and fog all day. Okay I need to eat breakfast and run! Ihope you all are doing good! One week from today will be Xmas eve! That is my favorite of the 2 days because we use to do all the opening of gifts on that day when I was a kid and we use to visit my cousins on that date. My bro's and sisters are all flying in this weekend and we will have our dinner on xmas eve night and open gifts Christmas morning,but we almost decided to do it on Christmas Eve but since there will be kids there we decided to wait until the next morning for obvious reasons!.LOL but I have to go I really am running late now..have a great day everyone!

After a week full of work, I'm having trouble receiving anything this week. I guess it is the final week before Christmas Holidays. Thursday is the last day of school, but I was at least hoping for two days!

I'll check back in later. I hope everyone is enjoying their week. The final full week before Christmas! Merry Christmas.

Good morning friends. The last of the presents were wrapped last night and are safely under the tree. The kids tried to peek at them as soon as they woke up this morning but backed off when they realized the gifts were being guarded by a Peppermint Patty (our elf on the shelf).

Tonight is my so 'so Christmas program at school and I'm excited to see him sing. He's bee n working hard! Hope you all enjoy your day and the last week before Christmas Eve!
