Good Morning Fellow Villagers!

Its chilly here this morning 52 and we're expecting it to get cooler and rainer as the night comes.

So far I've done the typical stuff here this morning.
Up, 2 cups of go juice drunk, dressed, bed made, recycles down, landry flipped and started, fur bags fed, DH sent off to work in Riverview.
Working on our paint bills for this month things are not matching up and I'm gonna have to go to paint store today. But it'll have to wait til I get back from Clearwater this afternoon as today is move grandma day. I pick her up at 11 am and deliver her to new ACLF.
Also need to be home early as DH is taking off his job in Riverview early because he has to go to Ft. Myers tonight around 7 to paint 2 bathroom ceilings at a MacDOnalds. He doesn't like to come home to an emtpy house and feels that I'm doing too much as far as my grandmother is concerned and my sisters aren't doing enought. He doesn't understand. <sign> Won't go there.
Well I'm off to get DD up and going. Hope everyone has a good day.

Morning all...
Laurie-I hope all goes smoothly for your grandmother..
For me today:
got up early and did some laundry, fed the animals, packed DS's lunch,wet-vacc'd some damp spots in the basement, made a chicken parmesan for dinner.
Still have to run some errands, finish DS's cookies, meet DD for lunch, and hopefully go thru some Christmas stuff to weed out what I am keeping, donating, etc...
The weather here is still kinda gloomy, but warm.
Have a great day all!

The only thing I'm doing is laundry. Everything else is CLEAN!!! :cheer4:

I may run up to the mall to pick up a Christmas present if it came in. Maybe to Kmart for another present afterwards.

Need to decide what to make for dinner, make the bed, and then I'm going to KNIT!

Good Wednesday morning everyone!

Well it's another cold, damp, rainy, dreary day here :( COME ON SUN! Where are you??

I'm dragging this morning. I had a hard time sleeping last night and finally dragged my butt out of bed at 5 a.m. I've already had a whole pot of coffee! Can we say jitters? LOL!

Plans for the day....

*clean stovetop
*shopping for a pre-lit Christmas tree
*if I get motivated....start Christmas cards
*and hopefully fit a nap in sometime

We are suppose to have a stormy day (Yay!! I LOVE storms!!!) So I am going to sit back and enjoy the thunder, rain, and all of the weather warnings. These are my favorite days!!!
The kids do not have any schoolwork - we are takinga break for a few days. So it will be a lazy, lazy day.

So far this morning I have worked out, showered, fed the baby, snuggled with the baby, and went to work. I'm working until 5 and then I am going to pick up the baby. From there I am doing laundry, making spaghetti, and cleaning my house. Oh and doing homework.

I think I am going to have to go take a nap now...reading Dawn's list has tired me out just thinking about it :).

I worked last night and have not been to bed since 4:00 yesterday afternoon, so I really will be taking a nap this afternoon. I don't plan on doing a lot today, just some straightening up and decluttering the mail from the last few days.

Have a great day everyone.
