Happy Birthday to Steph!

Stacie, congrats on the new job. Let go of the stress, throw those old cards away, cart that stuff out, and embrace the challenge and excitement of the new opportunity!

Mel, you forgot me! I like hugs too! Reminds me of my 7 year old. He was standing next to me when I was on the computer working and had been trying to get under my arm and get my attention. He finally just yelled, "Mom"! Pointed at himself and said, "Hug this please!" With his darling toothless grin. So I did, of course!

Um, forgot what I forgot, but I do love candied pecans Callie! Good choice. And Yeah Capri for booking your flights. Good luck to all of you still studying. Hope it is almost over. OH, Courtney! Don't play to much while the cat is away! (from Nathan, who I must go get off to school, and me off to work)

Have a great day all.

Cheryl - can't believe you even asked us if you should be daring!
Steph - have a great time at DL! I'm jealous!!
Stacie - I can see where it would be stressful to end a job during the Holidays. Yikes!
Amy Sue - I am going to take you up on that shirt offer.
Debra - congrats on the great GPA!


Trying to get all of my Christmas stuff done before the kids are out of school on Friday. I feel like I am running in circles. Tomorrow I need to stay home and do laundry though. And then tomorrow night is Michaela and Grant's Christmas program at school.
Hey Becci! I have me, you, Heather, and Deb all getting in around the same time. I knew Capri was, but then also remembered she was changing it. So there's 4 of us right now. If we get 1 more, we can do the Disneyland Express for the same price as the SuperShuttle. So if anyone else is coming around 10:30-11am on Thursday, let me know!!

I have a whole box of business cards from my first job. I left the company over 3 years ago so I have no idea why I still have them .

Yay...my thoughts too! I like the white ones the best and I think I'm going to get the tote size I think. I'll have to look at them but now with my work GC and my birthday GC from DL I have enough for the tote and I have a work GC from last year so I could get the wristlet if I like it too. Can't wait to go purse shopping. I can send you pictures if you'd like so you can see what choices there are in Feb. for your May trip.

That totally sticks...sorry! If it's not in yoru line of vision you could probably get away without replacing it for a while. I know I've done that in the past. We always got cracked windshields in CO from the dirt/rocks they put on the roads when it snowed.

Biggest of hugs to Tracey and Katie!!!!!

Waaa!!! We just got my son's Mac computer, and I have no idea how to post images now. I had a really cute big hug picture to post for you guys. Just imagine a little glitter kitty giving you a big hug.

Love Mel

Steph, thanks for taking the time (happy birthday!!!) to answer my windshield question.

I'm not sure why it matters to replace now before it gets worse... I thought these things could never break into little pieces and fall on you...?

I know. I went through that when I thought I'd be at DL last weekend.

Yeah, it is low so it's no bother. The purse sounds sooo wonderful! Perfect reminder of what a good employee you are and how lucky they are to have you.

Stacierita, try not to stress out about the job change - stress only makes the back worse (I know)... go with the flow, be happy about your new change which is going to be so much better.

Yea, Capri making plans!

Hugs to Katie and Tracey!

It was the mailman with an Express mail delivery .
He says "I got a delivery for Debra".
Me "I'm sorry you have the wrong house".
He looks at the envelope "Oh, it's from Debra it's for Katie".

I opened the envelope & was in shock. There was a cute Christmas card & generous gift card from several of the Divas. I don't even know what to say, I've been very emotional lately & your thoughtfulness is making me cry (in a good way ). It's over 3 hours later & I'm finally composed enough to post my gratitude.

You guys will never understand how much you mean to me. I really don't have many friends. Most of them disappeared the more problems I started to have (they were fake friends). But you guys always gave me encouragement through all my problems & that means more than you know.

Love you guys .
woohoo Katie!! merry christmas xoxo

Here's her latest picture!

I mean she is going all the way under, I could not live with myself if something happened. We have been very fortunate in the Disney time we have had this year and I am not having a pity party, but am just sad
When I told my 7 year old, he got all sad and almost cried, and said, "I really wanted to go on Screamin!", and then two seconds later was onto the next thing. So I guess I am the only one traumatized. (I think my husband is relieved!)

Well, I'll be back again some day!

Good Night all.
Tracey
sending you good thoughts & prayers to your mom! Sorry you had to cancel.

My dad is stable. The doctors are trying to figure out why his white and red blood cell count is so low....they are suspicious he is bleeding out somewhere. They did an endoscopy (sp?) on him yesterday, but found nothing, so now they are talking about doing a colonoscopy and possibly getting a bone marrow sample.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I didn't have any time to read back other than just a couple of posts, but I wanted to say:

Debra - Congrats on the awesome grades girl!!!

Jen - Sorry about the bummer job interview. As smart and accomplished as you are, you'll have them knocking at your door soon.

Tracy - I'm sorry you had to cancel your trip.

I'm sure I missed a lot so I'm giving hugs ALL AROUND!
sending continued prayers to your family!

Hi Ladies... I am on my 2nd week of jury duty and I am just soo excited to be an alternate because I get to sit in this really nice room with a bunch of sniffling, sneazing, coughing strangers all day long! At least there is wi-fi so I have been catching up on what has been going on with y'all.

To those that need them, big hugs

To those that are celebrating WOOHOO

To everyone else, happy Thursday!!

My DS turned 11 on Tuesday so after court we spent about 3 hours in traffic driving down to DL. He wanted to get his gift card and I couldn't say no to him since the rest of us all received our cards.
It was pretty busy, but we managed to ride a few rides and finally saw the fireworks in front of IASW. Boy, that is my new favorite place to watch them. After it snowed, both of my boys gave me the biggest hug and thanked me for bringing them. Now I am already emotional since fireworks and snow get me all warm and fuzzy. But when they said thank you the water works just started to flow. They didn't seem to mind that their mom cries It was well worth it to see them soo happy.

I hope that everyone has a magical day!!

Hello ladies! Lots of us are so busy with all sorts of fun holiday plans, errands, cleaning, baking, shopping, wrapping, working, and so on and so on! Whew!!!! It's exhausting.



I'm back from my doc appt. and have all sorts of fun (not!) and pricey procedures scheduled to see what's going on with me. Boo!
But I am blessed and thankful to live in a country where these tests are available to me, and hopefully they will give me an answer and a solution.


We also found out that we are pretty much screwed on getting our mini van sliding door fixed. We only have liability so our insurance won't cover it. They are going to try to go after the guy using his license plate and go through his insurance, assuming he has any, but with no witnesses it could be hard to prove and it's not likely to happen. So it appears we are stuck with a crunched in door.

But I am thankful the door still slides so the kids can get in and out, and we have a van to drive rather than taking the bus, no matter how crappy it looks. LOL


I have a ton of baking to do, but am happy I am capable of baking yummy treats for friends and coworkers.
I have a ton of laundry catch up on, but I'm grateful I have a washer and dryer in which to do it.
And I have lots of cleaning to do before Ruben's parents and sister arrive tomorrow. But I am happy they are coming and therefore happy to do a little work before they get here.


I still don't know what to do about my tooth as I don't have the money to get it fixed, but I know once I do, I have a great dentist to go to who is efficient, does great work and is close by.




Okay, how's that for trying to be positive and not get caught in the "woe is me" syndrome that I almost got sucked into today!!!!
Maybe if I say it often enough, I will actually mean it.



Have a wonderful day everyone!! TTYL

THANKS so much. Tracey I have to say I LOVE the pic collage that you did! That is AWESOME!!!! I am going to put that on my desk with all my other special pics! LOVE it!!!

Well I am going to run and try to watch my lost rental movie before I have to pic up the girls and then it is off to the dentist. BLEH! At least it is not ME who has to get tortured!!

See ya!

YEAH!!



Have fun!!!

My whole family is here. I'm going to let my kids miss school today and give the family a tour of our Swiss town.

Great advice thanks!!!

Have a wonderful time with your family over there. I am still so jealous of the adventure you and the family are having.

It is bittersweet. I love this job, and the facility, but I am so happy to start a new chapter. I basically created my job and have been the only one to do it, so its hard to farm out my responsibilities and let go. But you are right, that's how I roll!

I will have a hard time tossing the cards out. I am slightly narcisistic and love seeing my name on them.

My plan is to come in on Satuday morning and just clean out my stuff. There is a ton of it. Just today I found a couple packs/cups of oatmeal, 5 water bottles, hot cocoa, and more plastic cutlery that I can use in my last days here. Not to mention all my Disney stuff I will need to take down. I am so looking forward to my new job though. I am taking the week between Christmas and New Year's off to relax and take care of some stuff at home that i have been neglecting.


Beth - Can you add me to Carnation Cafe? Pretty please with sugar lumps on top.

Mel- Thanks for the hugs. They are always welcomed.

Beth- I love your new positive attitude, but I'm so sorry things don't seem to be working out. If they find the guy that hit your van & he has some damage on this car, then it will be easier to prove. Hopefully they don't wait too long so he can't repair his car. Good luck with the doctors & I hope it's something easily fixed .

In light of Beth's new positive attitude, I'm going to follow her lead & be positive. I finally took my car in this morning to get the brakes fixed & the rotors were also bad. So it will cost me $499. The positive is that it is under $500 & that they are giving me 90 days same as cash. So I have 3 months to pay for it with no interest .
