Looks like we're behind on your changes. May will be nice, though.

Hi I heart!

Quick brief whine...I went to the derm yesterday, thought it was for a quick mole check. Instead I was told he was going to was remove it right then. The stitches hurt today. I think it will be better tomorrow. Whine off.

On another subject, Christmas is a week away. I bet the RCers are busy getting things ready. Thinking of you all!

Thought I would pop in and say hello and send everyone a

I'm thinking that someone sawed the top half of my skull off while I was asleep and replaced my brain with cotton candy. Sunday I thought I had fixed my outline before I submitted it. I found out yesterday that I didn't when I saw I got a 0. I had an A in that class and now I have an 83.

Then today, I went shopping for supplies for the adult's Christmas gifts. We are giving them hot chocolate kits (with hot chocolate mix, mini marshmallows, peppermint candy canes, and chocolate mint candy canes), chocolate dipped pretzels rods, and chocolate dipped pretzels. Joey missed the bus this morning, so I had to take him to school. Then I went to Hobby Lobby. Since they weren't open yet, I stopped at Chick-fil-A and got a chicken biscuit. After that I went to Wal Mart and bought the stuff my mom said to. When I was in high school, she was over the concession stand at the football games, so I used the recipe she used. When I got out to the MV, all proud I didn't forget anything, I called the DH. He asked me what I was going to put it in. Back I go into Wal Mart to buy something to put it in. When I got home, the boxes I bought to put the marshmallows and candy canes in, wouldn't hold as much as I wanted. I didn't want to drive all the way to Wal Mart, so I went to Dollar General. They didn't have what I needed, so back to Wal Mart. I decided to get more candy canes, but the location that had the Hersey Mint Chocolate ones wasn't there. After looking every where, I asked an employee (which I hate doing). I followed her (at a jog) around the entire store practically and the outside garden area, and they were out. I called Albertson's and they had 4 boxes left. I went and got them all. I have all the hot chocolate mixed up and put in jars, the candy canes are boxed, and so are the marshmallows. Now I just have to dip all the pretzels in milk chocolate, color white chocolate red and green, drizzle the white chocolate on the pretzels, and box those up. Then all the adult's gift will be done. For now, I think I'm gonna lean back in bed and pass out since I didn't sleep well last night.

Mmmmm! Hi wookie those pretzels are yummy! I had someone give me some at work as a gift and I loved them! But she also melted caramel bars and drizzled caramel with the chocolate....the sweet and salty is so addicting

Well my friends, I got the call today , my interview is Jan 4th....new year may bring new challenges and opportunities! I'm a tad scared, I really don't enjoy interviews The competition is internal, so I think I have a good chance, I don't quite yet know what to feel about it! I think I'm waiting for the final offer to make any decisions -- full time will mean more Disney money for sure, lol

I'm training my new partner this week , so I'm a tad busy. Thankful to have my part time schedule over the holidays though! After Friday, I'll work Fri Dec 28, Thursday Jan 3, and that's it until Jan 7!!! Worked well for me this year!

I had to take my new car in today as my cruise control light blinked constantly, check engine light came on, and traction control came on! Thankfully it ended up being a fixable issue -- the car misfired while merging in the cold weather (an emissions thing) which caused the disable of cruise and traction-- a computer upgrade fixed the problem hopefully! Still disconcerting when it's a new car!

Happy Tuesday my friends

Marie

Hi everyone! I asked where everyone was and then I left!

Padawans: Sorry you aren't going until May...will our dates overlap? We will be there May 15 - 20.

Candace: : I bet you are super excited about the Yacht Club!! Anymore thoughts of CL??

Marie: Glad they were able to quickly fix the problem with the car, it stinks even when it is a new vehicle. Fingers crossed for your job interview on the 4th!

Melissa: Good luck tomorrow at the allergist, hope it isn't too uncomfortable for your DS.

Wookie: Sounds like you went to a lot of trouble to make your Christmas gifts, but they sound delicious!!! I am sure they will be appreciated.

Ginny: So sorry about your stitches. I hope it heals up soon. Feel free to whine anytime.


Well, not too much going on here. Our teachers are going on a one day strike tomorrow, they are fighting with the gov't right now. So tomorrow the DD's and I will do some baking. I wasn't going to, but tonight they were all asking when we are going to make our Haystacks and Marshmallow roll. "They are our favorites!!!" they all said. Okay, that's all I needed to hear.

Still trying to figure out that whole 2013 discount posted by Danny25. I am in the camp of just waiting to see what happens. If something can help us out...great!! If not we are still going to Disney no matter what, and it will be magical no matter where we end up!

Hugs to all

Jen

Good Morning and Happy Hump Day!

Going into work late today since DD8's school has their holiday concert today, so DH and I will attend before going to work.

The week is almost halfway over! I was pretty convinced that this week would d-r-a-g.....but it's moving along.

Friday, we have our refi closing!!! Another $250/month less we'll be paying on our mortgage!!!

Then, I will be off from work until Jan 2nd (cue the choir)....I am soooooo ready for a break. The best thing is that out of the 11 days I'll be off (including weekends) I only have to use 3 days PTO since our work also gave us Christmas Eve and NYE as holidays this year too!!!

Looking forward to 2013. 2012 ended on such a sad note with what happened in CT. Just wanted to say that I love you all my friends and I hope that 2013 brings nothing but health, healing, happiness and LOVE for us all....

Oooooooohhhhhh!!! My ticker dipped into the 3 months range!!!!!!

Good morning Ladies!

I got released from the hospital late afternoon yesterday. So glad to be home with pain meds that are working.

Have't said much about my upcoming trip, since I haven't been doing very well. However, I go the go ahead from my oncologist to go! It will be a slower paced vacation than usual, but I will be in WDW.

People are beginning to scatter for Christmas. Safe travels Grumpy Grandma and anyone else hitting the road.

Hi JC, I am so glad you're home, and that they have got your pain meds working better. Wonderful news that you've got the OK for your vacation! The Wilderness Lodge will be such a nice place to relax, and enjoy!!

Hello lovelies!

Extra hugs to Sarah & Ginny.

Melissa: Enjoy the party tonight!

Jen: Enjoy the baking! I'm going to have to go look up Haystack and Marshmallow roll ... or is that a family recipe? I just swore to myself I'd not do any more baking!

Candace: Enjoy the concert ... and the extra $250 a month!

Marie: You'll knock 'em dead at the interview, I know it.

More to all of you... safe travels to our GG.

.........

Nothing exciting here. I'm trying not to buy any more things. No. More. Things. Hubs and I looked at the cc statement last night. Eesh. Was actually tempted to cancel Disney at that point... but the flights are already paid for and half of the ressie. Definitely not going again in 2013. Although I guess I should never say "never" since the hubs actually whistled the "Be Our Guest" tune this morning at breakfast. I swear he's more excited about this little jaunt than I am.

Nurse Perdue, do they give banana/Frito IVs? We need our Pioneer Girl Sarah FULL of potassium.

We all have you in our thoughts and can't wait for you to get back home and start thinking about packing for your trip. And make sure you know where you can get frozen chocolate covered bananas at WDW
Hmmm, Kook, gives new meaning to a "Banana bag" We have a multivitamin additive which turns the IV fluid yellow....but no flavor...If I can invent an IV which gives thw patient the lovely taste of actual food. I could make Gajillions!!!! Where's Deb and padawans to help
