Good morning everyone. It's a bit nippy here these days...pushing -25C but the forecast is to improve by the weekend. Still minus temps, but not so bitterly cold.
Mama - You sure hauled in the loot from DD's trip. What a wonderful daughter to bring back such neat stuff. Enjoy your time right now...BIL will be home too soon.
Diamond - Congratulations on your wedding. I know these are just words, but don't stress out. The planning is done, you have made a commitment to marry your best friend, now enjoy the day. Whatever goes wrong, take it in stride. In the whole scheme of things, it will be insignificant. Have fun and concentrate on you and your new DH. It's your day and you are the only ones who count.
Kim - WTG. I know that it is inconvenient to have DH eat your food stock, but be thankful that you can switch him over to healthy eating. I basically have only healthy foods in the house, but allow the non-dieters to purchase some snacky things out of the grocery budget when we are shopping. The catch, though, is that they are not allowed to have those snacks located anywhere that they will tempt me.
I don't know...they have found some pretty creative hiding places. I can't find anything even when I have the craving and go searching.
I would also love pajama day at work... imagine all the people who sleep in the buff.
For me, I like flannel...
Bamiegurl - Sorry to hear about the sweater. You are probably best to return that one, though, and not get a replacement. Chenille is one of those funny yarns...the polyester chenilles do what is called worm and leaves big holes everywhere. Not worth the investment.
anchor - Have a relaxing day today. Just think, if you are in an accident, you don't need to worry about your hair and make-up. Hmmmm...have you checked your underwear.
mkuhn72701 - WTG on the weight loss. Hoping that you win the family contest. You have already come a long way. That last 25 pounds will come off, just keep with the program. You can do it.
Ruth - Mornin'. Have a great day wrapping. By the way, what are the results from Hersh's check-up?
Me - Just the usual busy time. Soon, I am hoping to get my head around Christmas and the holidays.
After work last night, DH and I went to pick up our new glasses. I finally had to succumb to the next step of getting old - bifocals. What a change, but I am trying to get used to them.
After the glasses, we went home and worked on installing hardwood flooring for 5 hours. I am painfully tired today and hope the day speeds by quickly. However, we will be working on the flooring again tonight. We are hoping to get the lower part of the bedroom finished tonight and then can start on the library/lounge area and be finished by the weekend. It has to be finished by the weekend because I still haven't cleaned or decorated for Christmas.
We also took our car in to the transmission shop this week...$1600 repair for that one.
That's better than the couple of weeks before Christmas last year, though. The furnace and the septic system pump packed it in but thankfully it happened before Christmas and not during when we had a house full of company.
Well gotta run. I have a meeting this morning with the Director of our department over some reports that I am writing for him. I can't figure out why his assistant doesn't do his reports, but it seems, he has me do them for him. Oh well, one day he will have to pay...
Bye for now.
