I went to Outback last night and our waitress wished us a happy holidays after we paid the check. The shopping center it was in had their Christmas banners on the light poles in the parking lot too. I guess the season is approaching faster than I thought!

Good afternoon all! We woke up to half and inch of snow on the ground this morning. That made this Monday morning back from a 2week break a liitle bit better! Work has been a madhouse today though as I knew it would be. things should calm down as the week wears on though. The snow should all be melted by Weds when we are suppose to get up to the mid 50's. There are 30 percent chances of snow the rest of the week though at night time when the temps ar ein the low 30's. The leaves are long gone though

My dawgs won the game on sat just barely but they pulled it off! We play Appalachain State this sat and then the week after that I think it's UK(Kentucky) now that should be a good game...so the season is slowly coming to an end. I have set my DVR to record a lot of movies this week. Tonight at midnight Karoll's Christmas comes on,it is one of Louanne's favorites and it is happy one minute and a tear jerker the next,so I really don't know if I am ready to see it yet. The reoccurring theme in it they play I'll be home for Christmas" song and even in the best of years it made my throat lump up,I know this year I will be sobbing. I may watch it later in the month but I have it set to record nonetheless! I hope everyone has had a great Monday and I will hopefully be around more at the office this week! Have a great evening everyone!

Hey guys, how is your monday so far? Mine is pretty much over. I just put the boys to bed and I am going to chill out infront of the tele for the rest of the night.

It's been a hectic day. The boys and I had dentist appointments today. I am so glad its all over with now, I always dread the dentist. My eldest is back to school tomorow after mid term holidays. Their next school break will be two weeks over christmas!!!! Wow!! Its so exciting to think that it s only 7wks away!

I woke up this morning to the first frost of the season. Its been so cold today. I wonder if there is a chance of snow soon. Hey I forgot to mention that I booked a delivery date for our christmas tree, november 30th! In the meantime, I need to finish my deep clean and annual declutter of the house so its all ready for a christmas makeover!

Ok well I hope you all have a good day but for now it's goodnight from cold england xxx

The ended up getting the flu mist, so DS didn't have to get any shots, but EA did get three other vaccines. She was so brave - no crying and she held so still. She always does so well!

Maybe you could suggest something? At least the music that I had lost, at the time, I had downloaded from free sites. Now, the stuff that I download, are directly from iTunes, so I pay for it all. Thanks, MerryCarey!
