One down one to go.............

Well I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday as much as I I said before I love Thanksgiving. Spend a day with the family and not have to stress about buying gifts. My mom made everything from the stuffing to the dessert. Retirement is agreeing with her. Everything was delicous!! The only bad part of the day was Chris had to work.....both jobs so I didnt get to see him other than when he left in the morning.
No I did not get up and shop at 4 am or 6 am or 8 am or even 11 am. There is not enough money in the world that would get me to shop and deal with them crazy people just to save a buck. Yes the deals, I am sure, are great but not worth it to me. I spent the day decorating my house for Christmas. My house looks wonderful. There is no better feeling than to relaxin in my house with the nice Christmas lights shining.
I did go out late Firday night to the mall with my sister. Basically to get a new cell phone. I absolutley LOVE LOVE LOVE my new cell phone. Yes its pink!! I have been playing with it ever since. I got a great deal. Now getting up for a deal on a new gadget that is something I WILL DO!! hahahahaha As most of you know there is not much I wouldnt do for electronics! Thats why I have the nickname Gadget Girl. I did end up getting Matt some more things and also a few more gifts off my list. So there is progress made in my shopping list.
I have been out of work since Tuesday so I am not looking forward to going back tomorrow morning....I went out Tuesday night to Toms Tavern with some co-workers and Chris for one of the guys I work with who is leaving. I got pretty drunk really fast, still dont know how that happen!! All I know is I was singing karaoke and there was not a karaoke machine but I used the pool stick!!! hahaha Hey its not often I drink so when I do thats what happens!!!
I have been faithfully going to the gym and it feels REALLLLLLLLY good to be back. Especially with the Holiday season upon us the food will be everywhere!! My back has been a lil sore after doing a machine today I probably should not of done but I will learn from that and do something else....I think my back is always going to be an issue but I can adapt!
My good friend is having surgery tomorrow and if you could all say a lil prayer for her I would appreciate it. I will be thinking of you!!!!!!!!!!! Also my sisters father in law is currently in the hospital battling cancer and having a tough time so he needs many prayers and thoughts!!! Its such a horrible disease!!!
I spent Saturday night with my girlfriends.....we have decided once a month to get together and play games. Last night we played Scattegories and Outburst and MaryBeth won the pot which was $50.00. Matt and Ashley stopped by also and enjoyed making fun of me making ridiculous guesses! hahaha
This coming Friday is my Christmas party for work....which I organize so other than working both jobs most of the week I have this to shop for and finalize!!! So I have a VERY busy week ahead of me! Grrrrrrr Yes I WILL be drinking again Friday night but this time I am staying in Wrentham, so no driving!!! YAY!!
Well I hope you all have a great week I am off to watch Desperate housewives and Brothers and Sisters!!!
GOOD LUCK SMOOCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its official.....

Yup it is official the Holidays are here whether you like it or not!!! Grrrrrrrrr Is it me or does Christmas start earlier and earlier every year?? I have found 3 radio stations that are already playing Christmas music. Hellooooooo it is not even Thanksgiving yet!!!!
I am although looking forward to decorating for Xmas....nothing cozier than laying on the couch with my hubby while the Christmas lights shine throughout the house. Also the village that will go in the Bow Window will block the breeze coming in ha ha ha
Things are going great.....working at both jobs still and still awaiting lay offs at work......there was a big tour on Friday from another state facility who is closing and our facility may be getting alot of clients which will save jobs. So thats a good thing. We'll see. I am losing one of my favorite co-workers...this Tuesday is his last day and I will miss him terribly!!!
I have finally decided on what gym to join....what worked best for me was going to World gym with my friend Michele. The buddy sytem is the way to go, if I didnt feel like going she would make me and vice versa. Plus we talk for hours on the cardio equipment!! ha ha Especially with the holidays coming and that means lots of food.
My friend Jessica who makes jewerly which is bought by famous celebritys is coming home to Worcester to have a trunk show at Tush on Friday November 28th from noon-6. Check it out she makes amazing pieces!! Her website is
The weather has been frigid the past few days!! Although other than few flurries there has been no significant snow...THANK GOD!! If I remember we had a few storms prior to Thanksgiving last year.
Well I am catching up on my tv shows from the week which I missed and probably playing on Facebook at the same time because I am addicted so I am off for now!!!

Happy Veterans Day!

I am enjoying a day off with my nephews due to Veterans Day......Thanks to all our veterans for fighting for our Country. Speaking of that Matt's best buddy will be coming home from Marines boot camp in 21 days!! Hopefully he will be able to be home for Christmas before he has to go back to wherever they may send him!!

Here we are already in November....the Holidays are quickly approaching and I am soooo not ready! I love Thanksgiving because it is that one Holiday you can just enjoy being with your family and not stress out about getting everyone gifts! That takes the fun out of the Holidays. When I was little of course Christmas was all about gifts but now its too much of a task.....this year I am focusing on the kids and that's it! My friends and I have decided to get together one night, no gifts, my coworkers have decided to do lunch, no gifts. Our family has a grab for all the adults and we have also decided no gifts this year and we are going to all go out to dinner in January. After all being with the people you love is far more important than opening a gift!

We got past Halloween and there was some cute costumes this year, I dressed up a couple times, same costume. Here are some pictures:

Other than Holidays coming and going.....not much more has been happening. Same shit different day is such a great quote! Oh wait we now have a new president!! ha ha I guess that's kind of big news. It just so happen to be who I voted for but that does not make him the better candidate. We will see. I have my fingers crossed for another stimulus check before Christmas! I also have my fingers crossed that this war ends and Matt friend does not get sent over there!
I happen to love November because of all the days off from work....we get Veterans day off and we get 1/2 day off Wednesday before thanksgiving and then Thursday and Friday!! I took the morning of that Wednesday off so I will be off Wed, Thur and Friday!! Seeing I don't work Fridays at WDC I will get to use a floater Holiday. I have been using my days off to work at Easter Seals. Last week I worked a 7 day week but the money is good and after all like I have said earlier the holidays are fast approaching!
My hubby sprained his ankle pretty bad and was out of work for 2 weeks but he is on the mend now and actually went back to work this Monday.....he still thinks he will be back on the basketball court on Wed but we'll see about that. I may have to threaten his life on that one!
Wednesday night I am going to dinner with Matt's grandmother, both aunts and my friend Sue. Even though Matt's Dad and I are not together anymore I still remain fairly close with his family and I look forward to catching up with them!
I have decided to get back to the gym and right now I am in the process of deciding what to do, where to join!! Due to my back injury I'm not sure going back to Kettle bells is the right choice for me but I will be starting something VERY SOON!!!!!
OK well Matt will be home from work soon and I need to cook up some supper for my hard working son!!
