Other than that, not much to report. Tonight, when the kids go to bed, I plan on sitting in my recliner and watching a movie.

Y'all have a good weekend!

NO join us on here for CIJ QVC wild party 2013

I am finding it so hard to make time for some MMC the last few days, and when there are nearly 1000 posts in a 3 day stretch getting caught up is really tough.

The taste test at Friendly's was very cool, we got to sample, judge, and give feedback on 15 new breakfast items they are wanting to rollout, only 4 will make the cut so we sat at tables and they came out with things like; Bananas Foster pancakes, red velvet waffles, Brioche French Toast, French toast with Nutella and bananas, eggs benedict, a fruit cup, a Breakfast Fribble (like a smoothie), Philly steak, egg and cheese on an everything bagel, a brand new fresh squeezed OJ, Bavarian cream stuffed pancakes, and a few more I cannot recall. some of the food was really good, (red velvet waffles, Philly bagel, Brioche french toast) Some was pretty bad, (Bavarian cream pancakes, Nutella French toast) but we used an Ipod to record our thoughts on appearance, taste, size, etc...It took 2 hours and we will now be doing this once or twice a year. We really had fun, they also asked us what else they should do to make it even better. Then as a gift for doing it we received $70 each. My wife and then went to the mall and had to check out Hallmark, I was playing with all the buttons on the ornaments, the only problem is they had the ornament display hidden in the back of the store because of people complaining about the Christmas stuff in the front of the store in July. We had a great night an topped it off by going out to On The Border for dinner at 9pm, that meal was great, I haven't had a good Mexican meal in a few years.

I am exhausted, back to work tomorrow, I am lucky I work in a cooler because this heat has been unbearable all week.
I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Good night everyone!!!
sounds great, how did you land this tasty job?

Good morning!
Still no relief from this heat. We will have temperatures in the upper 90's today. I didn't even bother walking the dogs this morning, it's already too hot out. I have a few things to take care of this morning with my daughter for her nursing program. Then back home for daily chores. Hope everyone has a great day and stays cool!

Christmasstar, I saw that you mentioned about in January we were wishing for warm weather? Not me!!! Here in Texas we get some warm weather in January. I know Wayne and I took the bikes out a couple of times then. It would get cold again and I was happy! This is coming from a Texan. If I was up north I would think differently.
