    Good morning all! I didn't check in yesterday. I went for breakfast with some friends after work, came home, and then my girlfriend came by for a few hours to hang out and see the dogs. Until she left, it was 3 pm, so I crashed for a little bit.

    Not much on the agenda today. I'm just watching HMM now and then this evening, we have hoagies that we have to deliver. We had to see them for a fundraiser for baton.

    I hope you all have a great day! Keeping all who needs thoughts and prayers in my heart!

    Once upon a time, my brilliant bride had to wrap every present in different paper. No two Christmas morning surprises wore the same clothing. This kept her up into the wee hours, each year. Thankfully, she had an epiphany watching our, then, cherubs gleefully shred her fine work and toss same into a bag for recycling in far less time than it had taken her to create her masterpieces. Peace and sleep are far more plentiful on present day Christmas Eves than they were during those well intended yuletides of yore.

    So glad you made it home safe!
    We were just supposed to get a light dusting of snow today but it ended up being sleet. The roads and most parking lots were a mess up until late afternoon.

    Glad you got a good night sleep! My dad used to be on shift work so he never got decent sleep. Mikes dad works 4 pm to 2 am Wednesdays through Saturday and Mikes uncle works 6pm to 4am
    I totally agree!
    Thanks! Tuesday night she was fine. Last night she kept coming to see me but I think it was anxiety over me working the whole day
    Glad you were able to get some shopping done
    Prayers for Nancy mom
    Hope you had a great day
    I bowl you were able to get everything done tonight
    Thanks M! We had a lot of black ice this morning

    Glad Caroline is coming along! I still have issues with my son (who is 7), sometimes coming over at night. He's never been a great sleeper.

    Thanks - I did!

    Good morning, MMC family! It's Friday for most of you, but today is my Monday. I work the next 4 days, starting this evening a 7. I slept until 4 this am, so that's too terrible, but since the kids will be at school and DH will be working all day, I hope to catch a nap later.

    This weekend is going to be kind of chaotic. I'll dive in to the details as the weekend goes on, but as we all know, with this time of year, there is a lot going on, so simply, I won't be getting much sleep. I hate to say it, but I'll admit it, the sleep thing I sometimes do to myself. When there are kids and family functions going on, I don't want to miss them. My kids are only little once!

    Nothing really planned for today. I made a list last night of all the cookies, candy, and mixes I want to make. I have 14 different kinds of cookies. I don't think DH is too thrilled. He told me I narrow it done a little. We end up giving most of them away!

    Okay folks, I hope you all have a wonderful day! I'm drinking my coffee and am going to turn a Christmas movie on.

    So, Mrs Bear helped me put up my little tree, of which I still need to decorate fully. She also surprised me with an amazing advent calendar, which has a meaningful little gift in each day(box).

    Despite all of this yuletide gaiety, i'm still unable to flex my christmas muscles. Ok, strange year - but somehow feeling almost repelled by christmas! Gasp! a phase i'm sure, lest my MMC card be revoked :)

    Work is pretty hectic, so that's probably it - usually by now i'd be playing nethack, listening to 80s chrimbo cheese, and madly looking forward to the xmas flights to the UK.

    Anyone else sometimes feel a bit underwhelmed by it? Serious question - not trolling.

    Morning and TGIF MMC. Another cold and dry day here. I'll take it. Not a fan of the cold weather but it's been dry for several days now and it looks like a cold/sunny weekend and most of next week also. Long day at work yesterday but trying to get out on time today for a Friday. Need a Christmas Weekend. Plans? Christmas shopping, wrapping, music, and shows/movies. That sounds like the perfect December weekend. Have a great TGIF!

    Today is just another day of work. Tonight we will make some more slice and bake cookies and I will catch up on laundry. Tomorrow is my day off and we have breakfast with Santa at my dads work

    we have here a wonderful place called "The House of Blessing" It is a food bank, a place where those in need can get free clothing. They provide counselling, programs for parents and children, and so much more. They also have a Christmas toy drive which was well under way already.
    Earlier this week they had a fire
    https://www.stratfordbeaconherald.c...1uJn4HieKrusgvw1-SVtn4BmCDkRvEEmlzIovDfg0_FQ4
    The city and area is really rallying around and helping restock the food suppies and try to replace the lost toys and clothing.
    Please pray for these folks who do so much to help others

    Merry Friday!! It is cold outside and supposed to be chilly all weekend but like Edge said at least it will be dry. My cousin and her family from Long Island are coming down tomorrow. Not really sure what we are doing but were thinking of going out to dinner and then going bowling. On Sunday my daughter, has a basketball game but it is here in town so not too bad. Then I will definitely need to hit the grocery store. Hope you all have a great weekend!
