Hi All,

I was going to start a Valentine's Day Goal thread, but decided to wait until New Year's, or at least after Christmas, when I'm more into working on a goal!

RR- It's cold there?? What, did it go down to 60 or something?! That is soo sad about the dog. Is he a stray, or did he belong to someone?? Shame on that person for letting him get away so far that he could get on the interstate! Glad he's going to live though. And at least it wasn't a deer or something that could total the truck!

Dani- Have fun skiing!! Be careful!! Congrats on the loss...even if it was little!

Pryia- You know, for exactly the reasons you said, that's why I want to make a budget! I know we'd have plenty left over, or at least more to send to DH's CC's, if we knew where it all went.

I am gonna have to go back out shopping tomorrow. I just have to get a couple more frames. I keep finding stuff for myself!! Went to Kohl's and bought 2 sweaters, 1 sweatshirt and 2 mock turtlenecks for myself. Also got a set of dishes!! Not sure if I mentioned this or not, but I've had a running saga going on about my dishes. I didn't really like the ones the girls gave me for a shower present, so I returned them and got a credit. Ended up buying some cheap Corelle dishes in the meantime, til I found something I like. I have not been able to find anything!! I've seen one's I like, but not that I'd want to have, ya' know? Or I love, but it's china or something that's ridiculously expensive. Well, Pfaltzgraff must've just come out with a new pattern, because I haven't seen it before, and they don't have it on their website. It's called Orleans. It's really pretty, I love it. It was on sale, 20 pc. set (service for 4), for $79.99, so I bought it, and a 12" platter that matched. Also bought the matching salt & pepper, but I'm going to return it, because I really don't need it, and it was too expensive. Today, I was in Macy's and they had a serving bowl and sugar/creamer that matched, so I bought them. They were 30% off. I'm really thrilled with it! I can't wait til we move, so I can wash them in the dishwasher and use them!!

Warning - slightly graphic... My FIL is back in the hospital! They were supposed to drive down to DC today, for the procedure tomorrow AM, but he had some blood in his stool, so the doctor told him to go to the hospital. They kept him in the ER most of the day, then finally decided to admit him at least overnight. After telling my mom about it, she said probably they have to lower his Coumadin (blood thinner) dose, because that's probably what's making it happen. So, it's not that serious, I think. I just hope they don't make him go to DC on Christmas day, maybe they'll wait until Wednesday, or something. DH's brother and sister are both down from Boston. Brother is going to drive them.

Anyway, I guess most of you are all gone now, if you're going away for Christmas. Have a wonderful time! I'll be hanging around here, waiting to here about FIL. Christmas day will be at my brother and SIL's house, which is pretty local...same state at least.
