do I have to check in too??? I usually check in with my mom every Saturday (unless I call her before hand)

My JoAnn's order came in
now I"m scrapping with my new tape glider

got to go to company christmas party tonight - should be fun, got to keep my feeling down on getting a gift, they usually drawn names & not everyone gets one or gets a silly t-shirt in size XXXlarge - I luck out the last 2 years & got a cookbook and a handmixer so it is time to either not get anything.

Yes, you must check in too when taking trips! It's a must! LOL

I hope the party goes well tonight... Just remember it's a drawing not a directed dig at you.. But I would so be upset too.. Either give to all or give to none...but that's just me!

DD got an awesome Christmas card from her college!!! How cool is that? Today, then she and I both got an email that housing applications for next year are now open...so we will apply for her housing tomorrow! (deposits will be made then too, why did I buy her Christmas? Couldn't the deposits have worked? )

this is how I feel too - I really hate that they get a big prize that could had paid for a gift for all of the others

now that is cool - love that they care enough to send those out - not sure if the college I went to doe that now or not - housing deposits will be cheap compare to what everything else will cost (we won't talk books)

I don't understand the ideas behind this- I guess I have been lucky that any company I have been with gets everyone a gift- I mean when I went to the holiday party for the jewlery store i worked for everyone got different gifts based on tickets but everyone got a little something- some kind of a figurine thing. At the schools I worked for everyone got the same thing from the school. DH's district of churches does a Christmas party for the pastor's and their wives- everyone gets a little gift (many times and ornament this year was mini frames and albums) at their place setting. They have a table full of gifts that their names are drawn for but their is something for every pastor- this year DH got a chocolate trivia pursuit game.

We are pretty luck Reddy.. PJ choose the school that offers the cheapest tuition in the state.. she has already received a departmental scholarship.... she is applying for 6 scholarships over break or she will be grounded til Spring break! She just talked to one of her close friends and they are wanting to room together!!! It's a nice things because they are a lot alike.. quiet, reserved, good students... PJ said there are several kids going there...this was a school that was overlooked in previous years! Guess all the smart kids got the same idea! LOL

Ok. off to the basketball game! Time to watch stepson play. oh the joy!

Well, it's 10:41 and I haven't heard from Lisa yet...Hopefully she and Megan were just exhausted and got to the hotel and went to bed for their big meet up with Cheryl and Rachel...


Reddy, how did the Christmas party go?

Glad to be home from the game... It was a nail biter and we came up short..
Hopefully tomorrow night will be better...

I was under the impression she was getting in at 9pm Pacific- is it about that time yet? I am really bad with time zones.

I got a $10 gift card
the gifts keep getting cheaper - the big gift was a stero (last year it was an Ipad, the year before it was $800 flat screen TV)
there were 10 other gifts - 2 of which were jumper cables, another 2 were BBQ tools.
I was really happy to get the gift card
most got sweatshirts or tshirts (Coke gave them some of the T-shirts, how many people do you know want a Coke Zero shirt?? in size med wherethey are a size Xlarge)

the ones setting up didn't think the food needed to be hot - save the heating cans for catering, no spoons, only ranch dressing. seemed to be leftovers really.
