The grand plan is to find a job that I can still use my license for, like a real estate coordinator, but so far there's nothing available around here for that.

Every time it happens to me, I think to myself, "Why didn't you copy it first, just in case?" I do that for some work things, but I don't think about it here until it's too late. I'll learn...or pay the price!

I love this time of the year
I can't actually believe we are so close to the season! When it does get here I just want to savour those few weeks.

I hope you won your debate! I would say Nov 1st to!

My bro in law tried to get me to switch allegiances to the Patriots, but I am no bandwagon jumper like 95% of their fans are around here.
I don't jump teams either. Been a fan of the same teams since the mid 1960s. Atlanta Braves - MLB. NC Tarheels - college bb & fb. Cowboys - NFL. My problem is I can't root for Jerry Jones so I basically don't have a favorite NFL team until Jones is gone.

Good Wednesday (Pinesday!) morning, my Christmas friends!

Today is upper school chapel day at the kids' school, and Jacob's Praise Band is set to play a couple songs. They played for the first time a couple weeks ago, but he wouldn't let us come to watch. He thought they wouldn't be very good, and he didn't want our first impression to be a bad one. But he says they are sounding better, so I'm about to leave work and head to the school. He took his new guitar, too!

Nancy and the kids are all going to dance and guitar lessons today, so think it's a good time to get some real work done on the Camaro this evening...I hope.

Y'all have a great day!

I have aches and pains everywhere today lol. I can't even face going on the cross trainer. Anyway I'm just finishing up a few things before I collect my son from school but I wanted to share good news. DH got the job, thank you for the kind wishes and prayers, means a great deal.

Hope you all are having a good day. See you all later at the Pines! First round of drinks are on me!
Congratulations to your DH!! So happy for you guys!! I hope that you are able to rest better tonight, take care.

One of my work colleagues is sick and I'm doing her tasks today. It is quite calm here though, therefore I have enough time to hers.



Did your job (the one were you had to learn a lot of things) not work out? Or are you looking for a second job?

We continue to pray for you in your job search. I changed careers in the late 90s. It took a while to find something but it has been worth it.

I sympathize. When I was little I bit into a peanut butter cookie, and it turned out to be a pumpkin cookie. It turned me off of pumpkin permanently. Before that happened, I liked pumpkin pie.
