Woooooooooooooo hooooooooooooo!  Guess who's officially on winter break?!  Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!  I turned in all my grades and answered all my student emails and grade requests.  I have to keep checking - just in case I hear from another student, but for the most part -- I'm freeeeee!  (And a little excited....did you catch that part?)  ;)

So, what are your plans for today?  Dan and I are headed out for some more shopping today.  I went through everything we've found so far and figured out where we need to concentrate.  We'll spend most of the day doing that and then this evening we'll be taking the girls to see the lights we discovered at the Herr's Chip Factory.  After that, we'll decorate the tree, maybe watch a movie, etc. 

I hope your day is full of all kinds of Christmas joys!

((((HUGS)))) - Karen

Ruthie - iVillage sure is wacky - for sure! I'm glad you got in - even if you did have to take the scenic route. ;) Your bowling party sounds like a really good time. I'm glad. You needed to get out and blow off a little steam I'll bet. I join you in waving to all our buddies that we don't see anymore. With the boards working so badly, I don't blame them for staying away, but I sure do miss them. ((((HUGS)))) - Karen

Josie - Sounds like most of the repair work on the boards is on temporary hold until after the holidays. Hopefully, they'll jump on this thing and get it fixed asap after that! Wow - you are a way better pet mom than I would be. I'm convince - I'll never own a dog. LOL Rudi's a cutie, but I'm too cranky to wake up in the middle of the night. ((((HUGS)))) - Karen

HI, ivillage is getting tired of the complaining, but lets be honest, it is getting worse not better.   It kept me logged in when they were first done with the changes and now it isn't.  I guess so far today, knock on wood I haven't had repeated script error blocks, yet at least.

Karen: glad you are on break and to share it with your hubby, what a lovely picture.

If my friend's mother has success with skin so soft I may use it come summer weather next summer as the monthly pill alone didn't stop the fleas from coming into the house twice so I would just as soon avoid that next summer.  Or to use back up plan as flea collar.

Little miss Rudi had us awake 3 hrs after the last potty run, then starting at 1am she wanted to get up again,  I managed to literally about hold her down and got her to wait until 3am.  No wonder I can't quit cycle of going to bed at 8pm!   Oh well,  I guess I will adjust to feeling hungover during the day.

Have my volunteer job today.   Watching the last Voice now.

Ruthie: how was the bowling?   Carol: what is up with you?   love,  Josie
