Well it only took me an hour to log in this morning.  I was going to give up and at least check out Sindee's pictures of the lights and it worked.  Go figure.  Of course I have used up my posting time trying to log in. Yes let's hope that they can make some major improvements this week with the boards.  I don't buy the excuse of slowness.  Things seem to load fast for me and the ads work good, so I'm not buying it.  They need to hire some reallly good techies with experience in making message boards to get them working.  They have been messing around too long and need to do something.  I think we have been patient enough.

Back to work today. It's my busy Monday.  It poured rain last night and is chilly out.  More rain today.  We will see if they are right about the snow coming in tomorrow.

Yes it's very upsetting about the shooting.  I just can't imagine what the families are going through.  My heart goes out to them.

O M G ! ! !  I was about ready to give up n here i am....woweee!!!  They really need to get something done.....not gonna repeat all my rants....

Hmmm....gonna work on mail a bit today, got a couple bills and several christmas cards i need to get out.  Gonna make a menu for dinner on Christmas, have to figure out what to make, i'd like to make a couple new things....Waldorf Salad, and some Hawaiin Salad, my sil's love hawaiin salad, and i love the waldorf salad at Ruby Tuesdays.  Otherwise just gonna fix the same things as usual.  My dd n sil n granddaughter came over yesterday!!  He ripped the carpet off the stairs and looked at the tile, it is down there on one piece of wood, so we can take it out very easily when we are ready to do that bit of floor.  She worked on decorating the tree for me.  Got most of the ornaments on it, and i put the rest on...the beaded strings, the garlands n then the tinsel.  Looks really good.  I found some of my decorations and put them out.  I am very pleased that not much of anything got broken with all the moving around.  My granddaughter wanted to help, but most all of my ornaments are the glass ones.  We had a good time yesterday.  We had lunch from McD's as they have brought back their McRib sandwich....love, love those!!! 

I also had a visitor yesterday.  One of the gals that wanted to adopt Giz is from Carol Stream, right next to where we are.  She is in college right now and was home for the weekend and asked if she could come by n visit the furkids.  She is young, her boyfriend is too, but he seems a bit more mature.  She brought the kids some new toys!!  It was a nice visit, she's hopin to come back by during her christmas break. 

Yes, so horribly sad about those children.  I sit n cry whenever i watch anything about it on tv.  Sat and cried friday afternoon watchin it unfold.....horrible, just absolutely horrible.  The pres made a good speech at the memorial, lets see if anything happens. 

I hope everyone has a good day and week!!!

Wow, lotsa weather goin on there with you, makin up for all you didn't get earlier in the year!!! 

Yup, back to work for you.  I'm tryin to figure out the best place to go and put in an application....i was told Walmart n Walgreens, but during turkey day, there was alot ofcontroversy about Walmart n their workin hrs n ethics, so not so sure about there.  Was thinkin of goin to Menards as i did work there before n enjoyed it, but i'm not sure their ins plan is any good.  Then was told that i would get in at Lowes cuz they hire veterans...but again, ins benies.... that's what i want to know about.  Wish i could get in at my old job..... 

I hope you have a great week Leslie!!!

Got in with one try today.  I'm still not authorized though.

Still have gastritis so started taking my stomach pills that I take when I take my pain pills when I have bursitis.  It is supposed to lower the acid and hopefully that will help.  Was up at 5 until 7 then went back to bed.  I was freezing so filled up the hot water bottle and that soothed me right to sleep.

Going to try to pack a little today.

It is still looking like Fall out and not at all like Christmas.

I'm so upset too about those children and that senseless mass murder.  It is just too hard to watch it on the news so I'm staying away from it altogether.

This is what I was told::

Hi Chris,

I understand everyone's frustration, and I am truly sorry for all the trouble everyone is having. We are waiting for an update on how they are going to get the boards working again once and for all, and I will let everyone know as soon as I hear anything. I hope you will all give us one more chance. We would really hate to lose anyone.

Sincerely,

Evelyn

I got in with just a couple of trys here at work.  Maybe they were working on something this morning.

I told dd we need to figure out the Christmas menu this week too so we can go and get stuff this week.

That's nice to have your dd and sil helping you.  My 3 grandkids decorated my tree and put a few decorations out too.  That's good to get that carpet off your stairs and the tile won't be hard to get up.  Having family around is such a blessing for us.

How nice of the gal to come by that wanted to adopt Giz for a visit.

Hope you have a good day too Mary.

Yes we are making up for such a dry summer.  It's been just pouring today and cold.

I guess you will have to find out all the pros and cons for working for these places if you are offered a job.  The insurance is a big consideration any more.

I hope that you have a good week too Mary.

You are doing good to get in with one try, authorized or not. lol

Gosh you have had that gastritis for awhile now.  I hope the pills for it will work.  I have to take my acid pill every morning or by the afternoon I'm not good.

Hope you can get a little packing done today.

Nope I can't watch the news either. It's just beyond belief that someone would kill those precious children.

Yup, i feel the same way, i've been watchin to see if there was anymore to the story on that stupid kid, but i just can't watch it anymore.....i cry thru everything.

I hope your stomach feels better, it ain't fun not feelin well, especially when you have stuff to do!!  I get cold at nite too n turn on the warming blanket a bit, it sure feels good on my aching joints sometimes. 

It don't look like Christmas here either, no snow, just cold, cold.  At nite it is nice to drive around and see the christmas lights, that makes it look like christmas!!  Anyone in your neighborhood got lights up?? 

How is Misha's owie doin??  What does Misty think of him wearin clothes??  She try to take it off of him??
