Vicki, glad you got all your Christmas stuff down and snowmen up. I haven't even started. Probably won't take it down until next weekend. Good that you sold the treadmill. They are nice if you use them but don't make the best place to hang clothes. Glad you are nearing the end with the quilt. Sure you will be happy to finish it. Sorry Del is still having problems with cold. Hope he feels better soon.

Cheri, glad you arrived in Florida safely. Hope the second city has more to do than this first one. Enjoy the warmer weather anyway. It is 30's here but suppose to cool off tonight and tomorrow and little snow but not much.

Went to church yesterday. We had a joint service with our sister church which is only abot 6 miles away. After church we had social time with an egg bake and sweet rolls. Then home to watch football. Wasn't too happy as Vikings lost and so didn't make it to the playoffs. Oh, well, that is how sports go, I guess. Went to town this morning and got the stuff I need to make the dessert for Thurs. afternoon. I will bake the cake on Wed. and add the pineapple then refrigerate until I get home from Tops. I will then finish it up. Tonight I am invited to the neighbors to play cards or dice game. There will only be 7 of us so hard to play cards. She mentioned dice game called 6-5-4. Think we played it before but been awhile so will have to be reminded how to play.

Have a Happy New Year emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Cleaned up the house, then took off for the Birthday party. Everyone was there and Avery got a lot of nice gifts. He smiles all the time and he wanted Grandma keep holding out his arms to me when he would see me. That made me feel so good. Will post pictures when I get a few of them if your on FB you can always type in Leah Good and see his pictures on her page. Took off from the party and did a little shopping and off for home. A lady text me wanted to know if we still had the treadmill for sale said yes and they stopped by and bought it. WOO HOO. I will miss it but need the room and decided going to do something different for exercise for it sat in the room for a year I never got on it. But need to start doing my new stuff Wed. After they left watched one show and off to bed. Didn't sleep to well Del was coughing some and keep me up for when he gets sick then I worry. I know it is just a cold but still worry about him. Now up early to go to clean a office then have to be at city job at noon til 4. John is doing the morning shift and I'm doing the afternoon shift. We all get tomorrow off then back at it again on Wed and I have to clean offices Wed and Thur. So I call this Hell week. Ok Happy New Years Eve everyone. emoticon emoticon

Carol a do nothing day sounds good to me. Yes with washers and dryerĎs itís a lot easier to do laundry now a days. Hopefully you donít get any more bad weather and let you have a load is not sounding too bad right now. Stay warm and dry and enjoy your weekend.

Cheri glad you made it to Florida safe and sound sorry that some of the stores arenít open and looking for an RV to stay in while youíre there all the time that would be a great idea. Have fun shopping and have fun on your trip and chat with you later.

Took down Christmas and put up snowman the house is all nice and clean again. Then I worked on the quilt not very long but got most of it in so I can know exactly what Iím doing now. Frosted AveryĎs first birthday cake it is a rocket ship will take pictures and show him later if I donít forget. Then my back started killing me from being on my feet and moving things so much so wet and sat in the hot tub, put on a heating pad, and then I ended up having to put my tens unit on. That was a lot nicer and I could go to sleep. Watched a movie and off to bed. Got up early not sure why, and finish the quilt. Itís not very straight but now I need to put on the border in the backing and it will be done will be taking pictures soon. Not going to church didnít know if weíd make it out in time so we can make it to AveryĎs birthday party. Canít believe he will be one years old tomorrow, but Leah celebrating today. Probably we will do some shopping while in Lincoln to get ready for my new keto plan again. Never gained over the holidays which is good so the keto plan does work if you just stick to it. Everybody have a great weekend and Iíll chat with you again tomorrow morning.

Hi all,

Made it to Florida. Weather is wonderful. in the 80's. A little overcast but that is fine with me. We are in Stuart Florida til tomorrow then will head to Boca for the rest of the trip. Stuart really doesn't have much to do. WE stopped at the beach for a minute but pretty empty and no shops around so left. Other then that just driving around checking stuff out. We tried to look at some Mobile home parks but most of them are closed. Guess I didn't realize with the holiday it would make it tough. Oh well. We want to try and buy one and then we can just come whenever we want. Kids could use it too then.

Carol that dessert sounds wonderful. I love anything with pineapple. Will have to give it a try as well. Glad nothing that is to difficult. Sorry weather there has been so yucky. That stinks.

Vicki glad you finally found the last piece for the quilt. That had to be frustrating to not be able to move on. Well now hopefully it will get done. Hope Del gets better soon too. Hope it doesn't hang as long.

Well just wanted to pop in. Have a good one and talk later.

Vicki, that was a short funeral. Don't think I have been to any funeral that only lasted 1/2 hr. Hope that piece you found works for the quilt. I am sure it was getting frustrating not to be able to finish it. Glad Del is feeling a little better. Hope he is completely over it soon.

Nothing much going on around here. Cold weather but no rain today. Had a few snow flakes but nothing serious. I am just taking it easy, watching TV, doing computer or reading. Just a do nothing day. I did was a load of clothes but that doesn't take much effort with the washers and dryers we use now a days.

Have a good weekend.

Cheri Have a good time in Florida and I do hope the weather is really nice for you guys and if you canít stop by ithatís OK we understand will chat with you when you get back

Carol that dessert sounds delicious I may have to try that one. Will you have a good time at your outing and hopefully your weather is not as bad as ours itís very cold here, wet and icy.

Went to work for an hour then went to the funeral in Lincoln, that was the shortest Catholic funeral I have ever been to. It only took a half an hour. Talk to a couple of the VFW auxiliary members then headed back for home. Was home pretty early so stopped at Walmart got a bunch of stuff stopped at home to drop it off. Del said he was feeling a little better but glad he stayed home from work. Then I went back to work, not much going on there so did a lot of paperwork so I would be caught up for Monday. Came home worked on the quilt think I found A piece for the piece that was missing. Now just to get it all put together then I think I will be done except for the backing. Made us some dinner, and watched a couple shows, and off to bed.

Cheri, I am making a dessert. You bake a yellow cake, punch holes in it and then pour a can of crushed pineapple (juice and fruit) over it. Then you put in fridge and let set for while. Then you make instant vanilla pudding and pour over it and then kool whip over that. Needs to keep refrigerated. One of the gals from Tops gave me the recipe. Was really good so hope gals like it. Sorry the weather is so icky there, but guess we are all getting it. It has been snowing and raining here since Wed. night. Hope you have a good time in Florida.

Vicki, hope Del is feeling better and it doesn't hang on with him like it did with you. Glad work went fast yesterday. Hope today went quickly too.

I didn't go out at all today. The temps have been falling all day and is rather cool outside. I may run into town tomorrow. Depends on the weather.

Hi all,

So hanging at the hotel today while Mike works. We leave for Florida late afternoon today. It is very rainy here so can't really do much. Hope the weather in Florida is better then here. ugh.

Carol sorry the tops meet was so small. That is ok though at least you got out and went to breakfast and had a good visit. Sorry to hear you had a gain, but again with the holidays it is a tough time to lose. Hopefully now that they are pretty much done we will all get back on track. So any clue what you plan to make as the host of the luncheon? Hope it is something pretty simple and easy to travel with.

Vicki glad the time flew by at work that is always a good thing. Sorry the weather has been so crappy. That stinks. Guess every one is getting it though. Didn't realize you were having trouble with the last square. Hope you figure it out soon so it can get done. So sorry to hear about your friends death. My condolences. Hope Del gets to feeling better soon. That stinks he caught it. Oh well it happens.

Well have a good one all and will try to pop in while away. Talk later.

Cheri glad you found a new sweater that you like and still goes with the pants your mom gotcha. Have fun in Florida safe travels.

Carol sorry you had again but when you eat like we do it during the holidays I guess thatís going to happen. We are all going to get back on track very soon. Just enjoy your time with your friends and family and be careful in this crappy weather.

Went to city job was so so so busy and that is good because in the day goes by fast. It rained snowed you name it it was doing it and cold and icy. Came home and Del told me he was not feeling good. I think he got my crap. Worked on the quilt still need that one piece as of now because itís just not all fitting together so if I had one more piece or figure out what to do then maybe I could finish the quilt by the middle of January and have it ready for her when she retires. Watch the end of a movie then off to bed. Today I have to go to city job for a little bit then off to a funeral for a lady who was in the VFW in Lincoln and she was so sweet we are going to miss her. Then back to city job then not sure what the rest of the night will bring. all depends on how Del feels.

Cheri, glad you were able to find a lighter sweater that still goes with the pants. Glad you had a good time with the family on Christmas. I miss having little ones to buy gifts for and to watch them open the gifts. Have a good time in Florida. I'm not sure how long Jack will have the cast. He is suppose to go in today and have it Xrayed to see how it is coming. Hopefully they will give him a time line then.

Vicki, hope things improve between you and Leah. Chances are she was overtired and your not coming just didn't set right with her. Glad work wasn't too busy. Hope you can find some stuff on sale.

Didn't do too well on the weight. I gained 3 pounds. So guess I will have to get back on track. We only had 6 people there so decided to just have a short meeting. One of the gals and I went out for breakfast. Then came home. No plans for this weekend. Really no plans now until Monday night when a group of us are getting together to play cards. Then Tops next Thurs. morning and Ladies' Aid Thurs. afternoon. I have to hostess ladies aid so will need to make something for lunch for that. We have been having some wet weather. Snowed some last night, then rain all day today.

Have a good Friday.

Hi there,

Well today took car back to shop so they can get it repainted while I am gone. Also discovered over the weekend somehow the cruise control got shut off so they are to fix that as well. Then went and returned a sweater my mom got for me. It was real pretty but it was too heavy and I don't really like a sweater that is heavy. So returned and got a light weight sweater. Still goes with the brown cords she bought me so all is good. I leave for atlanta this afternoon and then tomorrow we head to florida. Looking forward to the trip. I will have computer so will get on when can while away.

Vicki sounds like you got that quilt about ready. That is good. Hope you get the last square figured out and can start sewing it soon. Yep I need to get back on track too. Have been real bad over the holidays. Hopefully this week will be the end of that and then will get to it again. Good luck with you getting back to it as well. Hope you find some good stuff at wal-mart when you go back. I love those sales.

Carol not sure what you are up to this week. Hope whatever it is you are having fun and relaxing.

Well talk later.

Carol glad you had a good time with your family oh well you ate too much thatís how it goes. Just be glad you got to spend time with the whole family and everybody had a good time. That was nice of them to donate the money to Saint Judeís thatís a good idea to have our gift sent to someplace that we really appreciate. I will have to remember that for next yearís gifts.

Cheri glad you had a good time with your family sorry Mike had to leave but now youíre going to get ready to go to Florida. Have a great time and chat with us when you can.

Went to work not too busy just enough to make the day go by fast. Stopped at Walmart to see what they had for bargains for after Christmas sales. Didnít really find anything I could use as of now will go back maybe on Friday and see if things are marked down to a buck like they were last year. Came home made some leftover potato soup watched a movie and off to bed. It has been raining all day yesterday and still raining today. Going to city job, then tonight going to work on the quilt think I have one more piece I need to figure out, then start sewing it together. Well better dressed and out the door.

Hi all,

Not much doing today. Got up at 5am took Mike to airport. Came home and cleaned up a bit. Still more to do before I leave tomorrow but will get it done. Yesterday was such a nice day. Kids came over around 2:30 and Mase and Laci were so good. Then Jeff arrived at 5:30 and we ate right away. All were pretty hungry. Right after dinner we all exchanged gifts. Everyone really liked what they got. It is so fun to watch the little ones. I love it. They all left by 9pm. Cleaned up a little and off to bed we went. Need to get myself packed and ready to go so will be working on that tonight.
Vicki sounds like you had a nice relaxing day. That is good. Sure you needed it after all the running around for parties. Sorry Leah mad but she will get glad again. Hope work goes smoothly for you today. Sorry right back to work but guess that is life.
Carol glad you had a nice day visiting with the kids and the neighbors. Sounds like a lovely day for you. Wow and a late one. Must have been having fun or wouldn't have stayed that long I guess. So how much longer is son going to be in cast for? Glad it is a little easier for him now.
Well guess that is all for now. Have a good one and talk later.

Well, yesterday turned into a long, but fun day. Got up and put bananas and cool whip into my salad, put peanut brittle in disposal containers for boys and made a candy tray to take along. Younger son, Jack and his wife, Sheri, arrived about 10:30. He still has his cast on but it was easier for him to get in house than at Thanksgiving time. We visited and watched TV until little after 12 then went to Skov's. Dan, older son, and his family were there already. Joan Skov had dinner ready so we dished things up and ate. Really too much food. Joan is a wonderful cook and hostess, but she always makes too much. I think she had 4 desserts which we had later in the afternoon. We opened gifts. Jack had told me he didn't really care that much for peanut brittle so gave it to Emma, granddaughter, as she loves it. Dan was happy to get his. Instead of giving me a gift, Dan, Amy and kids sent money to St. Judes in my name. I really support that charity so that is what they have done the last couple of years. Jack and Sheri gave me a gift card to JC Pennys. We spent most of the afternoon visiting. Jack and Sheri left between 3 and 3:30 as Jack had to get some sleep before going to work at 11P.M. So then we visited some more and then played games. I got home about 9:30. All in all a very nice day but ate too much. Know I won't lose this week.

Glad you both had a good day. Cheri have a good time in Florida. Hope to hear about your trip while you are there.

Vicki, tough you have to go to work today. Would be nice to stay home and relax, I am sure. Of course, if I choose, I can do that most days. I love retirement.

Have a good day.

Hope you all have a fantastic day! We had a nice Christmas Eve. Went to dinner with Jeff and kids then just home to relax. Today the kids will come over late afternoon and we will do dinner together and open gifts. Should be a nice day. Mike will leave in morning to go back to work and then I will leave on thursday eve to go meet up with him in atlanta then we leave friday for florida for a couple of days. I will have computer with so should be on periodically while away.
Vicki sounds like you had a very nice time with the family. So nice they are all close again. Wow didn't realize Samuel is going to afghanistan. That stinks! But as you said the service calls. He will be in my prayers.
Carol hope the Christmas Eve service was nice. Do have a great Christmas with the kids and neighbors. That is such a nice tradition. Sure sounds like there will be a houseful and with all that wonderful, oh my yummers.

Well that is all for now. Have a great day.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I probably won't be on tomorrow so wanted to wish you holiday greetings today. In the morning I will be finishing up getting stuff ready to take to the Skov's and younger son and wife said they would be here between 10:30 and 11. We are to go to Skov's around 12:30. Imagine older son and family will go directly over there. Yesterday went to church, then home to watch Vikings football game. Tonight we have Christmas Eve service at 5:00 so will be going to that.

Vicki, glad you had a good time with family parties. Lot of partying for one day. Boy, that will be late by the time Samuel and family get home, but I can understand them wanting to do their own family on Christmas day. When my boys were little we used to have our own doings on the day before Christmas and then drove up to my parents' place to spend time with them and my brothers and sister and their families. Was a real houseful, but lots of fun. Eventually families got too big to get together like that. Well, you can relax tomorrow and you and Del celebrate together.

Cheri, hope you and your family also have a great Christmas. I am sure it is nice not to have to drive too far to be with the boys. Glad you did so well at the casino.

Cheri glad Mike is home safe and glad you went out for wings with the kids sounds like you had a good time. Glad you won money to keep playing at the casino., that is always my goal , as long as you were having a good time. Samuelís family is here til after Christmas Eve party they will leave about 7 - 8 pm then 3 - 4 hr drive home. They want Christmas Day to themselves. I donít blame them.

Everyone got up had a little breakfast then got ready for Big Luebbe Christmas. Not as many there this year but still good food and lots of laughs. Came to our place had family Christmas, love watching the little ones open gifts. Del and I got a Alexa from The Good Family, and Gift card from the Luebbe family. So much for NO gifts. I think we did more laughing then anything. Played with the Alexa still learning what she can do. Then Good family went home Samuelí family helped clean up a little before we all went to bed. Iím up sitting by Christmas tree playing computer game and Sparks and love knowing my family is in the other room. Wishing Samuel didnít have to leave for Afghanistan in January. But Army calls. Not going to do much this morning get them all packed to go home then go to my Dads for Christmas Eve. Last party then need to get on my plan again. So everyone have a Happy Christmas Eve emoticon

Hi all,

Got Mike at the Airport in the morning then went and did some grocery shopping. Mike went and picked up new glasses and then the kids came over. We all just hung out here for a bit then went to have wings with them. That was fun. After that Mike and I went to the casino. We had fun. Kept winning about 40 bucks at a time so kept us going for a while. It was a good time.Today not much doing. Just pretty much relaxing at home and watching TV.

Vicki sounds like you have a very busy weekend. Glad had fun with the first bunch. Glad kids came home for all the festivities. How long are they staying? Hope you have fun at the others as well. Glad got all caught up at work so could relax and not think about work over the weekend. That is always a nice way to go out of work for a bit.

Carol glad you got the brittle made. Sorry the first batch didn't turn out, but I do that kind of stuff alot. ugh. Oh well the rest I am sure is wonderful Brittle is one of my favs. Enjoy. Wow and fudge too. That is awesome. Hope all enjoy.

Well that is all for now. Have a good one and talk later.

Carol sorry you burnt the first batch but bet the rest tasted good I like brittle. Just have fun with family.

Sat around in pjs till Samuel called said they be here in a half hour was not expecting them till 2pm but came at 12 noon. So then I had to feed them, good thing I had left over chicken. Then we just sat and talked till time to go to Delís side of family (we call the little Luebbeís) Christmas. Had a good time then came home took meds and off to bed. Now up finally got SparkPeople on my iPad. We have two Christmas partyís today Big Luebbeís then my kids and us. So long day and lots of food. Everyone have a good day.

Vicki, sounds like a very busy weekend for you. Will the kids be staying all the way through Tuesday? If so, you will be tired by the time they leave. Glad you are caught up at work so it won't be on your mind over the weekend.

Got my peanut brittle done today. Made 3 batches-one for each of the boy's families and one to take over to neighbor's house on Christmas day. Actually I made 4 batches but threw the first batch away. I forgot to turn power down on microwave for the first batch and it tasted burned so threw it away. Also made a pan of fudge. Now all I have to do is make my salad. I will start it on Monday and then add bananas and kool whip Tuesday morning.

Have a good time with your family.

Carol emoticon on loss yes it will be hard these next few days but do your best at least you will have a loss for the year. Enjoy your time with family and friends

Cheri I want to go with you and get away from here so you just have a good time and stop by here when you can

I thought for sure I was here yesterday so maybe my post got lost or I just didn't think about coming here which is not me. Oh well not to much to report. Yesterday got dressed up as a Elf and went to work with some goodies to hand out. Had so much fun. We were not to busy at work so got thing I think up to date for now can do the rest after Christmas for now we get Monday off. That was nice of the Mayor to do that. Came home cleaned up the bed rooms for the kids to stay in then made a angel food cake to make into peanut logs. A friend dropped by and stayed for 3hrs so got nothing else done. Watched the end of a show then off to bed. Was up at 5:30am so played a computer game. Then Del got up about 7am made breakfast and we finished making the peanut logs. And then he went to see his step mom i thought i better not go yet just having this cold she doesn't need to get sick. So I stopped in here then will wait for the kids to show up then off to Del's side for Christmas. Going to be a long weekend of food but I will try to be good. Try to stop by in the morning.

Cheri, that will be nice for you to have all that time off. Sounds like you won't be spending much of that time at home. Hope you have a wonderful time in Florida. Nice for you and Mike to be able to get away alone. With him gone so much you don't have a lot of together alone time.

Unusual to not have Vicki post. Wonder what happened to her today.

Went to Senior Center today for dinner. They had turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes and green beans. Then a choice of 3 or 4 desserts. I had a peppermint dessert. Whole dinner was wonderful. Then I went to the bank to get money to give kids and grandkids for Christmas. Came home and took a nap.

Have a good weekend.

Hi all,

Well done with work for 2 wks now. So happy about that. Mike will be home tomorrow morning until wed after christmas. Then Thursday I leave for Atlanta and Friday we go to Florida until new years day. Then back to Atlanta until Sunday. Back home and back to work on Monday. Will be a nice get away. Very much looking forward to it. And time alone with Mike. Will give cousins in Atl. a call let them know will be there that following sat. the 5th see if can get together for a bit.
Work is all caught up and all was good when I left. I will be working once back to atl. for those days so don't think will get too bad. So had Christmas party at work yesterday. It was nice. I got some nice stuff. We did a new gift exchange game with dice. It was much more fun. I really liked it.
Vicki sorry the cold is still hanging on. That is crazy. Well at least feeling better and voice coming back. That is good. Glad you got all the shopping done. That is wonderful. Hope the VFW funeral went well. Nice you could take the time off work. Hope all went well there and you were caught up before you left. Do you have Monday off? Glad you didn't get a ticket when you got stopped. Boy that is nuts.
Carol glad you had a loss at Tops. Way to go! Hope you get the rest off, but like you said could be tough as Christmas is this week. Good luck though. Nice you were able to stop and see your sick friend.Sure they appreciate the company. Hope you get your brittle made and all get to enjoy.

Well have a good one and talk later.

Vicki, glad you didn't get a ticket when you got stopped. Was it still dark out that you needed to have your lights on? Hope you can figure out what it wrong with your machine. That is very frustrating, I am sure. Glad you are feeling better. That has sure hung on for long enough.

Well, at Tops today, I lost 3/4 pound but recorder says I am 3 pounds from my 10 so will be very surprised if I will make it as we only have one more weigh in and that is next Thurs. It will be hard to lose that much with Christmas only two days before. The gal where we are going for Christmas is a wonderful cook and she always cooks way more that she needs to. She loves to have people come to her house. So I am sure there will be plenty to choose from. I will just have to try to choose wisely. Tomorrow is the Christmas dinner at the senior center so I will be going to that. Not a good time of year to be trying to lose weight.

Carol we have to pay for our glass's too but Walmart is pretty cheap on frams and the insurance only pays for the visit too. Oh well I need to see. Glad your blood test came back good. Nice of you to stop by a friends bet she liked that. Hoping for a good report for you at TOPS.

Went to eye DR all is good for another year. Then took sewing mach to DR all is good again he say's. Tried it out this morning still not working right on the emb. Block I want to do so will try another one and see how it goes. If still not working right will call them and have to take back after Christmas. The regular sewing works but the emb part is not. So not sure what is going on but will try again after while. Got all my shopping done for Christmas came home wrapped everything and under the tree. Made leftovers for dinner, watched a little TV and off to bed. Had a coughing spell during the night not sure what was up with that so got up took my meds and back to bed and slept like a baby. Must had swallowed wrong or something and feel a lot better today and voice is almost back. Thank goodness have partys starting Sat and the whole family will be here. Going to spray lysol in the whole house to help fight what ever I got. Well I will see how they did without me at work yesterday. I'm only there today for 3hrs hope i can get everything up to date before i have to leave. Then work a VFW funereal then come home and work on sewing mach. So close to getting the top of the quilt done and want to get that put away. Well better get dressed and out the door.
forgot to tell you guys I got pulled over by the cops on Tue morning. Asked HER what I did wrong she said you don't have your lights on. OH my goodness I would have got there if she would have just given me a min for in town I didn't need them but going out of town I would said oh crap my lights are not on. Oh well that open my eyes for the day. Why can't they get those people when it is foggy out, and they don't have their lights on. LOL just glad she knew me and no ticket.

Cheri, glad your eyes are doing well. My insurance doesn't cover lens and frames, just the exam, so I always end up paying for them. But I would sure find a place that carries cheaper frames if this place is so high.

Vicki, glad the cold is somewhat better. Sorry you didn't do well at cards, but it is nice you got a nap in. I am sure the early hours and not feeling well has drained your energy and you needed the extra sleep. Hope you got the rest of your shopping done.

Went to town this morning and had my blood check for my coumadin. I was at 2.5 which is perfect so don't need to get checked for 6 weeks. Then I got a haircut and then stopped to see a friend who has been having some health problems. Stayed about an hour and then her sister and nephews from Wisconsin came so I left. I am sure too much company tires her. Tomorrow is Tops. Not sure where I will be. My scale looks about the same as last week.

Have a good Thursday.

Carol the salad sounds so good and brittle love that stuff too so yap better wait on making it you have too or I too would have it almost eaten before I gave it away. Glad your boys love it.

Cheri yes still crazy they didn't see the color difference. Glad your eye DR appointment was good but sorry they can't get your frames or lenses with your insurance always something. If you have a Walmart check to see if they have a eye place that is where we go and love them.
Glad this post stayed sometimes our computers do dumb things

Got my two offices cleaned then city job, was crazy busy. Both Ed and John not there I was going crazy with phone calls and walk ins. I had a pile of Renewal papers and still have some when I go back. Came home made hamburgers for dinner and then the card people came. When I lost I decided didn't want back in wanted to just sit and do nothing and fell asleep on the sofa, next thing I knew the card people were leaving. Getting up at 4am two days in a row and with this darn head cold guess I needed to sleep. After they left took my meds and off to bed. Slept pretty good head cold still hanging on but not to bad and my voice is a little better today. Have to go see Eye specialist and see how my pressers are in my left eye the Walmart DR said they are great now we will see what this DR says. Then finish Christmas shopping and come home wrap everything and maybe do some baking. Sure hope my sewing mach comes home with me too but we will see what they say. Better get out the door chat in morning.

ok third try at this. Gonna make it short. This dang computer keeps making the post go away and getting a aww snap something must have gone wrong message. ugh.

Yep I agree with yo both that it is bull they couldn't see the difference in color on the car. That is just nuts cuz it is really noticeable. Crazy they thought they could get away with that. Not happening. They will be getting it taken care of for sure. Work pretty easy today left early to go to eye dr. appt. All well there. They overcharge so thinking may try somewhere else next time they claim to not have lenses or frames within what the insurance covers. I don't buy it. and it happened last time too. Thought would give another chance but same so will find another place to go next year. ugh.

Vicki sorry voice not back yet. Must be frustrating. HOpe better soon. So glad to hear you finally got help at the VFW thing. Bout time. Hope it goes smooth now. Glad you were able to make it over for lunch with Del. Must be close by to be able to do that. That is great. Hope the mach gets to working so can finish the quilt. boy that would surely stink.

Carol I agree with Vicki that salad sound yummy. So does your brittle if I remember correctly it is in the recipe page here. May have to give it a try. Glad you decided ot wait on making it to not be tempted by it. I know for sure I would be. Good luck with that.lol Glad you had a nice day and it was relaxing.

WEll better get this posted before it disappears again. Have a good one talk later.

Vicki, that would be nice if I could use your slips but we have a card that the points are put on at the register and you use it at the pump where the credit card goes in. Yes, the fruit salad is so easy to make, but my family loves it and it has been a family tradition since I was a kid to have it for holiday meals. Just fruit cocktail and cool whip. I also add banana instant pudding, bananas, pineapple tidbits, and mandolin oranges. That will be nice if you are able to get your relish tray at Sam's. Our closest Sam's is in Rochester so over 50 miles away. Glad you finally got some ladies to help with the funeral.

Cheri, glad you had a good time with family over the weekend. That is ridiculous about the car. They sure should have been able to see the difference in color. I would have had a fit. Hope they get it right when they repaint it.

Been a quiet day. I was going to make peanut brittle but then decided to wait until late in the week or I would be picking at it. I do it in the microwave so it doesn't take long to make a batch. I will have to make at least 2 batches or maybe 3. I usually give both boys a container of it and then will take some over to the neighbor where we are spending Christmas.

Carol we never use our gas stuff from HyVee for on thing it is in Lincoln and the gas station we use is right next door and almost cheaper then HyVee if we lived closer I could give your extra stub. Fruit salad for Christmas sound easy enough to do and bring. I get to do relish try and this year I am going to just pick one up at Sam's club all done in a box, if they have any when I get there. Just have fun with the family.

Cheri sorry about the car stuff why didn't they see that before they called you to come get, don't tell me they didn't see the different color. Glad you had a good time with the family, now have fun on your vacation.

Cleaned the one office came home to change clothes and go to city job. Got a call from one of the ladies I asked if they could help and she could. WooHoo. Then off to city job was not to busy there. Del's work place was having their Christmas soup party so I stopped by had my lunch there then back to work. I had no voice all day just enough to answer the phones but sounded pretty bad. Good thing we were not busy. Came home took more meds had a little dinner and watched TV. Another lady from the VFW called she can help too, even the last lady I called could help but really didn't need her with the other two and me and maybe Del so WOW got that covered and because I had already ask for the time off decided to just take it off and help too. If I don't sound good on Thur will just stay in the back round. Tried to sew a quilt block up but my Embroidery mach decided it didn't want to work so played with that not sure what is going on so will try again tonight and see if it works now. Took more meds and off to bed. Up early to go clean two more offices then city job then cards not sure of my voice yet have not had to talk so we will see when I get to work how I sound. I feel great just no voice. One guy from Del's work said his wife had that for 3 days and another lady said her friend had it for 10 day but no voice at all I have somewhat of a voice. So hope it goes away soon. Everyone else loves it I can't talk. Oh well this too will pass. Chat later.

Hi all,

So home again. Had a great time with the family. They are all doing great and all the kids had a blast playing together. That was so nice to see. Love it when the babes have fun and laugh. My son Greg seems to be doing pretty well. Him and the ex split again and he seems to be handling it pretty well. Had a very nice visit with him and also with my Mom. Back to work today. They called and said I could finally go pick up my car. Went there first thing this morning and then when I got there they had a problem when they started it to bring it around to me. Ended up leaving again and having to go back late afternoon to pick it up. Then when they brought it in there was a huge difference in the color of paint they used and the passenger side front door is a totally different shade then the rest of the car. So not have to wait a week and take it back to be repainted. ugh. Oh well guess that is life.
Tonight went over to Jeff's cuz he invited me over while him and the kids decorated their tree. That was fun. That is why the late post.
So read through the posts and looks like you all had a nice weekend.
Carol glad the Tops party went well. Glad they liked the nut snowmen. They do sound cute. Sorry your gift wasn't great but that happens I guess. Sure ours will have some duds too. OUrs got changed to Thursday now as one of the girls husbands grandmother passed and the funeral is tomorrow. So sad especially this time of year.
Sorry for the gain, but sure you will get it back off and do well at reaching your goal. Good luck with that.
Vicki sorry to hear you are not feeling well. HOpe you shake it soon. Sure would stink to be sick for Christmas. Boy that funeral sounds like a lot of work. Hope it works out for you. I agree with Carol there comes a time where you just have to say no as well and see what happens. That would really aggravate me.Glad you got the house done. That is my plan for the evenings when I get home from work this week.
Well getting late and need to get to bed. Talk tomorrow.

Vicki, that cold is sure hanging on. They always seem hard to get rid of this time of year. Hope it goes away soon Glad you were feeling well enough to get your house cleaned. Now that is out of the way. Boy, that funeral dinner sounds like a lot of work if you can't get any help. Maybe it is time to start saying no if no one else wants to help. That is expecting a lot of you and Del to expect you to do it all. Sorry you have to use your personal time.

Nothing much going on here. Went to town this morning to pick up some groceries. HyVee, the grocery store I go to, we offering 50 cents off a gallon for each $75 worth of groceries you bought. I didn't need a gas fill today but it is good for a month. I am suppose to bring fruit salad for Christmas so got all the stuff for that except the bananas. They would be way to ripe by the 25th.

Hope you have a good Tuesday and start feeling better.

Carol glad your niece stopped and you could help her out a little just by listening and giving advice some what. Always nice to have a second opinion.

Was not feeling to bad so went to church stopped at my dads Del had his soda talk to dad a while then off for home. Decided to clean the whole house was feeling that good and got rugs and laundry all done. Now the house is cleaned for the Christmas weekend. But then I started to feel crappy again my nose started to run and throat was a little sore again. Darn head colds hard to get rid of. So we ate some dinner, watched a little TV and took my meds and off to bed. Now up early have to go clean a office then city job. Got a call also from the Funeral home they want to do a funeral dinner at the VFW and man they are asking a lot. They want a Fried Chicken with the works so called the store that can make all that stuff and they could not say yes or no yet the boss was not in till Monday morning and she will call me. Really hope they can't do it but that won't happen. I tried calling people to see if they could work it but no calls back so hubby said he would help me so now I have to take a day off again. Glad I have 3hrs personal time yet that I have to use up so guess that will be my time off too. Well need to get dressed and out the door so chat later.

Vicki, hope you can share that cold soon. They are sure no fun, that is for sure. Hope you can get your shopping done when you go to Lincoln on Wed.

I went to church this morning. Rather a small group there today, but still a good service. Came home and watched football-Vikings/Miami game. Vikings won. About 5:00 my niece came. She stayed until around 7. Had a very nice visit. She and I are close but don't see each other as much as I like. She live 100 miles away and I am getting so I hate to drive that distance unless it is an emergency. She is my sister's only daughter and since her mom died as more or less been the one who has helped her dad. There is a lot going on with her one brother with her dad's finances and she is very concerned about it. So she was able to talk to me about it. Hope they get it worked out before something happens to her dad. It will be a real mess. As far as coming and doing your cleaning, I am lucky to get my own done. I hate to clean.

Have a good Monday.

Went to Lincoln got a lot of the shopping done just have to pick up maybe two more gifts and I have a eye appointment in Lincoln in Wed so will finish then. Came home didn't feel like doing anything so took meds and went to bed, was hoping to kick this head cold but woke up with it still hanging on. Took more meds but need to go to church today have a meeting with our Prayer Partners and I want to give him his Christmas gift. I don't feel bad just sound bad. Oh well no temp so guess we will go to church. Then I'll come home and see what I got everyone and see how done I really am to gifts. Have good Sunday all.

Vicki, bet that revenue work is tedious. Wouldn't it be nice if the money accounts we work with were actually ours. Bet you will be glad when it is done. Sorry you are still not feeling completely up to date. Hope you feel better by Monday.

Nothing too much going on here. I vacuumed the living room and swept and mopped the kitchen. I may have company tomorrow so thought I better clean a little. My niece called last night and we talked on phone for over an hour. She is going to southern Iowa tomorrow to see her daughter who attends college there and thought if it wasn't too late when she came home she would stop in for a short time. She said she would call me tomorrow to let me know if she was going to stop or not. It is a few miles out of her way so if it isn't getting late I really don't expect her.

LOL Still throat and nose is not so good hate this time of year hard to get better when it is cold outside. Took meds and off to bed. Slept pretty good. Now up played a game on ipad and now going to do a quilt block then we are going to Lincoln to do some Christmas shopping. Then not sure of the rest of the day. So everyone have a good weekend.

Guess I didn't stop in yesterday. When I got home from Tops I was tired. I hadn't slept too well on Wed. night. Think I had the party on my mind and things I still needed to get together in the morning. We had a good time and the gals all liked the snowmen nut/candy cups. Most thanked me for hosting. Weigh wise, I gained. So mad at myself. Know I ate too many M&Ms and nuts when I was filling the nut cups. Oh, well, this is a new week. Will try to do better. Have two weeks to get the rest of the 10 pounds off I am shooting for. I was the big loser for Nov. though so I feel good about that.

Vicki, glad Ed's surgery went well. Too bad the nurses are good about getting his med there sooner. Hope that improves. Sorry you aren't feel the best. I didn't feel good yesterday morning. If I hadn't had all the party stuff here I might not have gone. I got up in the morning with diarrhea. Took some medicine for it right away and again before I left and felt better. Didn't have any more incidents, thank goodness. Glad your VFW party went well. Sorry your gift wasn't the best. That is the way I feel too about the gift I got at Tops party. Oh, well, at least got something.

Cheri, sorry you weren't feeling well either. Must be the season. Have a safe, fun trip this weekend with your family. What a nice surprise to take a trip over New Year's. That will be nice.

Have a good day.

Cheri I want to go with you to Florida, that is where the Good family is right now doing Christmas with Marlon's family. If I was not working I would have gone with them. Oh well maybe next time. But you have fun with family this weekend.

Got one more block done looks so good hate to give this quilt away but thats ok not place to put in my house. Went to city job not to busy there and we all went out to eat at the Japanese place. Then back to work. I had a lot of paperwork to get done and Ed sent a text said he was doing ok lot of pain and nurses are slow getting pain meds to him, so he was not a happy camper. Hope they do better today. Came home had a head ache and sore throat so took meds and took a nap. Got up got things ready for VFW meeting, was feeling a lot better so off I went. The Christmas exchange was fun some people got nice things I got a ok gift nothing I can use but can give away for another White Elephant exchange. Came home put things away then took more meds and off to bed. Still a little sore throat and now nose is running some not bad so took more meds just hope to get through the day and not get anyone else sick. Not sure what started this must be the weather changing here. Ok better get dressed chat in morning.

Hi all,

Woke feeling better today. Sour stomach is gone mostly. Hope it stays that way. Today went into work and got a lot done. Should be fine now til I get back. Mike called yesterday said he booked flights to florida for NY eve. That should be fun. We did that last year and I really enjoyed it. So for that we leave on the 29th then go back to Atlanta on the 1st. Then I will stay there the rest of the week with him til sunday. Come home and right back to work on Monday. Will be a nice get away. Tomorrow leave for the weekend with family. Looking forward to seeing them all and the other two boys will be there as well so will have whole family together/ That will be great.

Vicki hope the surgery works for Ed. Glad all went well. Sure it will be strange not having him there for so long. Hope all goes smoothly. Hope the get together tonight goes well and you have fun. Hope you don't end up getting sick. That would really stink.

Carol glad all ready for the party tomorrow. Hope it is fun, you have a loss and nice that the one lady will be joining thanks to you being able to drive. You are always helping someone out that is so nice of you.

Well that is it for me. Have a great weekend ladies and will get on when I get back.

Carol sounds like your ready for the party, now hope you have a loss and then have a good time.

Got one more block done for the quilt was starting to put together just to see what i am missing and see I am missing a block for Easter so will try to get that done tomorrow. Went to city job was not to bad and glad John was there to answer questions. Came home with a sour throat not sure what is going on. Took meds and ate something soft for dinner and then went to bed wanted to get better fast. Slept pretty good was up a little early and when I stood up was a little dizzy. So took my meds and ate a little breakfast feel a lot better now and throat is feeling better now too. Really crazy not sure what is going on. Oh well I can go into work now. DARN but they would not be happy if not there but when your sick your sick. But glad feeling better have VFW meeting and Christmas party tonight, potluck. I'm ready to go have to cook my meal in the Mic when I get home then I am all done. Don't think to many are coming but that is normal for our group. Well better get dressed and out the door

Vicki, glad you had a good time playing cards, Must be a fun group. Glad you got Ed's desk all cleaned out. I bet it will seem strange to have him gone for that long. That must look nice on your fireplace to have all those stockings. The only stockings I have ever put up are the ones my two boys had as children. I really don't have a place to hang a whole bunch of them.

Cheri, bet that is a good feeling to have the shopping all done. You have quite a few to buy for so that is a lot of shopping. My brothers and sister and I decided years ago not to exchange among ourselves. After my folks died we never got together at Christmas. They all have good size families and just too hard to get everyone together. Hope you have a good time in NY. Hope the weather is good for traveling.

Well, have everything ready to go for tomorrow. Have nut/candy snowmen filled, door prize and game prizes wrapped and word game sheets run off. Just got a call from a lady who has no ride and wants me to pick her up tomorrow. She hasn't been there for awhile so it will be nice to see her.

Have a good day.

Hi there,

Sorry thought I had gotten in here yesterday but it appears I did not. lol yesterday after work I stopped and got the last of my Christmas shopping done. So it is complete now. Thank goodness. I only have 4 left to wrap too, but mike wants to see them before I wrap them. Which seen as though it is so few I am fine with that. So I will be leaving Friday morning to go to NY to do Christmas with family there. Looking forward to seeing them but not the ride for sure. Mike will be meeting me there. He will fly in. We will see both side of the family. That will be nice.Sure I wont be getting on computer while there.

Carol glad you got your toys done and boy how convenient that the drop was in the same store you shopped in. That is awesome. We have a lot of community donations going on around here too. We usually do it through work. WE all donate a toy and then some food for the food banks. Sure will do again this year. Sure the girls at tops will like anything you all decide to do for the party. Nice that it will be in the same building.

Vicki glad that Ed got the desk cleaned up before leaving for surg. Nice that John will come in to help out while he is out. Sure the new guy will do what he can but probably has alot left to learn. What kind of surg is Ed having? Hope not anything too serious. Glad had a nice time with cards. of course you usually do. Glad all the kids stockings are done for the fireplace. WE don't do the stockings anymore. Too many kids now.

Well have a good one all.

Carol that is so nice of you to do that for Toys for Tots and not even have to leave the store with them was really nice. Your TOPS people will love the snowmen nut cups. That is nice of you to do that too and yap good way to clean things out at home. I am doing that more and more. Just have fun

Went to city job helped Ed get his desk cleaned up before he goes into surg today. John is going to step in until he gets back. Jake the new guy is going to help as much as he can. The rest is up to me and if I have any questions Ed said I could always text him. Going to be crazy for 6 - 8 weeks without Ed. Came home got Avery's Christmas sock name done now all the grand kids and kids have a sock on my fire place. Then the card people came we had a good time and nope I didn't win but still fun. One of the guys wanted to buy one of my Nativity's for his mom so sold that for more then I asked for it. That was nice. After they left I played a game on my ipad to make me sleepy and off to bed. Slept pretty good was in bed till 5am so did one more quilt block. The lady came to get her cookies so now to just finish the quilt then I can get Christmas gift this weekend and hope to be ready for Christmas.
Well better get to work have a nice Hump Day

Well, got my toys bought today. The store had 30% off on all toys so that was a big saving. I got $150 worth for ladies' aid and then I bought $150 worth. Saved $120 on them. What was nice is the store had big box to deposit the toys for Toys for Tots so I didn't even have to take them out of the store. As far as the Tops party goes, not really a lot to do. I had some snowmen I bought several years ago to fill so I thought I would use them for nut/candy cups and the ladies can keep them. One less thing to get rid of later. Then I am running off some word games and we will play dirty bingo. We are having the party across the hall from where we hold our Tops meeting so that makes it nice.

Cheri, you must have really been tired to sleep that long. Sure the kids tired you out and you have been doing a lot of activity what with the inspections, so your body probably needed that down time.

Vicki, hope you do well at cards tonight. I know you always have fun and lots of laughs even if the cards aren't good. Glad you had a good time at Red Hats party.

Carol that will be nice of Grand son can stay and help get things out and put in different places so you can get to it easier. That is nice of you to buy those gifts for those kids, we have fill the fire truck and police car for Toys for Tots. And some of the stores have mitten trees you can pick a mitten and buy what is on list for them. Our town goes out for all these familys and I am so glad they do. Have fun getting ready for your TOPS Christmas party.

Cheri glad Mike was around to help out with the grandkids they can be a handful but so glad they want to come stay with us. So just enjoy it all. I always have to stop and say they are just kids but won't let them hurt themselves or others. So have to keep a eye on them at all times. You was tiered if you slept that long, sometimes our body's just have to say give it up and rest, so glad you got a good nights sleep. Now don't work to hard

Went to city job was crazy with all the renewal paperwork coming in but some of the company's didn't read the letter so have to call them and tell them what they forgot to send what a pain in the backside. So have more of that to do today. Red hats was fun and fatting, all the food was good and I didn't do to bad but a lot of bread things. Oh well will be good today. Came home took meds watched the end of a show with Del and off to bed. Woke up early again not sure why and had a little bit of a head ache so took pills and then started to get things ready to frost the 24 snowman cookies. Took me 2 1/2hrs to do them now I know I'm not getting enough for them but that is how that goes. Next time I will know that. Well better get dressed and off to city job. Then tonight cards can't wait need to laugh and tell some bad jokes.
Where do Penguins put there money in for safe keeping??

In a Snow Bank!!

Hi all,

Well I must say I was pooped yesterday. I took Mike to airport around 5pm came home and ended up falling a sleep on couch for about half hour. Thought because of that wouldn't be able to fall asleep at night, but boy I fell right to sleep and i actually slept straight thru until 8 am. I haven't slept that long in I don't even know when. Crazy how that worked out. Must have needed it I guess. So today went to work got quite a bit done and then came home a wrapped the rest of the gifts I had in the house. Got that done and Called heather to wish her a happy birthday. Then they asked if I wanted to go with them to see the lights at the fair grounds in the next little town over. So I did. It was not as good as they thought it would be but was ok. Then we came back here and they stayed for about a half hour. They left and just watched tv for a bit. Now doing this then off to bed I will go.

Carol boy that would be nice if grandson did that over the summer for you. Sure it would be helpful. Sound like a day of fun shopping for the toys. I like doing that. Glad you like to give to the needy ones as well. That always feels good to be able to help out when you can. You should be pretty busy planning a party at Tops. Hope it turns out well. Have fun!

Vicki glad things went well with the boys. They are so fun to have a round and glad Del helps out too. yeah not sure what I would have done without Mike being here. Briella really is very interested in the baby and pokes at her non stop so could not really put her in her seat much as she was right on top of her everytime I did. It made it a bit rough. But she just really likes her. lol I think she thinks Laci is a doll. So cute but a pain in the arse. Hope the city job went well. Hope whatever you have on your mind works out for you.

Well have a good one and talk later.

Sounds like both of you have been busy with the grands. Fun to have them come, but tiring when you aren't used to having them around. I rather miss not having little ones to take care of. Enjoy them now as they grow up way toooooo fast.

Cheri, I don't put stuff out in the yard anymore. For one thing it is stored in a corn bin and I can't get into it to get stuff out. I think I will see if my grandson will come next summer and stay a few days to help me get them out and store where I can get at them. I will keep a few that aren't too big and get rid of the rest. Also I have several bags of pop cans stored in a shed that needed to be taken in and recycled and he could get those out for me.

Went to Christian Women this morning. Didn't think the speaker was near as good as most of them we have had. Tomorrow I think I will go shopping. I agreed to buy Toy for Tots to come from our ladies aid group and then at the same time I buy a bunch from me. Really enjoy buying and makes me feel good that I can help some child have a good Christmas. Thurs. is our TOPS Christmas party. I am on the organizing committee so will be busy getting things lined up.

Have a good week.

Carol sound like you had a nice Church service with all the special music. Then out for dinner later hope the food is good. Just be safe on those roads.

Cheri all 4 grand kids glad Mike was there too. Nice to have them help out with that many around. So Glad Del was home too with the two boys. Hope you get more sleep tonight. And outside decorations no big deal like you said maybe next year.

Went to church with my dad long service with Communion and all the College kids that come to our church, makes communion takes longer. Dropped Dad off at home we came home and about 5min later here come Marlon and the boys. Xander and I made cut out cookies he had a good time. Then played with the kids the whole time - 6hrs then Leah and Marlon showed up with dinner Runza's. That was nice and tasted good. Then they stayed a little bit and talked then took off for home. Del said he was pooped that is a long day with two boys. I agreed. Watched a TV show then off to bed. Have so much on my mind was awake at 4am so got up played a few computer games turned the dishwasher on and now finishing up sparks then out the door to city job. Tonight we have Red Hat Christmas with one of my groups. So there will be food but I'll try to be good. Have a great Monday all.

Hi all,

Well last night was ok but ended up with all 4 grands. So between Briella and Laci was up quite a bit. Oh well it went ok and can catch up tonight on sleep. They were all pretty good. Glad Mike was here to help though. Today we put the tree up. It turned out nice and I put a few nik naks around as well. So we are as ready as we are going to get. No outside this year. Just wasn't time with Mike living out of town to get it done. Oh well next year I guess. Tonight not doing anything. Just going to relax.

Carol glad the chruch turned out well. The band that played at your service sounds pretty good, glad you could enjoy. Wow then back out this eve for more. Good for you. You keep yourself pretty busy with all your groups. That is nice. Hope the meal is good.

Vicki glad the quilt is almost done. That will be a nice surprise Hope it turned out as nice as all the others you do. Hope you enjoyed the day with the boys. Glad you are close enough now to be able to do those things.

Well that is it for now. Have a good one all and talk later.

Not much going on. Went to church this morning. Everything looked so nice. We had a 4 piece ensemble play special music today. They are a group of high school students from Austin. They came and played once last year too. Very talented group. Sunday school program at 5 this afternoon followed by soup and sandwiches. I will probably go.

Vicki, wondered what happened to you yesterday. Very unusual to not see your post. But our memories aren't what they used to be. Glad you have most of the blocks done for the quilt. Hope the kids are good for you. Nice that you able to help Marlon out.

Carol congrats on the loss keep it going and you will meat your goal. emoticon Glad you got the Church Decorated i use to help with ours but now they have so many that come don't think they need me to help and I'm ok with that. I still hope they want my Nativity's will ask again today. Now keep up the good work and make your goals for 2018

Cheri that was nice of Scott and Heather to pay always nice when the kids pay once in a while. Hope Laci was good and you all got to sleep with no problems. Glad Mike made it home safe and you guys went to casino together and won, that was even better.

Thought I stopped yesterday but guess not got busy with making cookies and going to see Del's Step mom Lois. She is doing well and wants to go home but Del's dad who is 90 just can't take care of her so she is better off where she is. So we will see if she gets to come home before Christmas. After seeing her we came home worked a little on the quilt and watched a few movies. Then friends called went out for dinner and stopped at my office to get some pictures of the lady I'm doing the quilt for and sent to my email. Came home put the pictures on fabric now have two more blocks to make then can put the quilt together, I hope. Well getting ready for Church and just got a text from Marlon wants us to watch the kids so he can go shopping. So will have the Good boys after Church until Leah gets out of Army drill and Marlon gets done shopping. So better get moving and put things up and have play day. Everyone have a great Sunday.

Cheri, glad you got to share dinner with Scott and Heather. Nice that they paid. I am sure they just wanted to pay you back for all the babysitting you do. Too bad the food wasn't all that good. Gee, it must have been your lucky night to win at casino too. Hope Laci is good for you. Makes for a long night otherwise.

We got the church decorated today. We were suppose to do it last Saturday but postponed because of the weather. Had quite a few people turn out to help so it went a lot faster than usual. The only thing that took us some time was finding everything. Don't know who put stuff away last year, but some was in basement, some in pastor's room, some in cupboard in the entry way. But finally got it all rounded up and stuff put up. Needless to say, it will all be put in one area when season is over. Looks nice.

Have a good Sunday.
