Good morning! Yesterday was another busy day. DS's soccer game was at 9 so we started early. During warms a ball was kicked right into his face, hard. But he took it well, brushed off and had a great game. Scored another awesome goal.

Then I went boot shopping. I love boots. But as I've gotten older and gained weight my well endowed calves have become, ummm, well, rather large and boots don't fit as well. But darn it they are so cute this year. So I pulled the kids to three different stores until I found a pair I could live with. Then Trader Joe shopping and then went to see how my parents ove was going, helped there. Late dinner and then fell asleep.

Today it's raining, gloomy and muggy. But suppose to clear up later.

It's going to be Monday until we find out the finalist in the writing contest. They were going to contact them Friday, but they wanted to confirm that no rules were broken and there was no vote tampering.

So I've been trying to keep myself busy.

Michelle, hope all is well with you and your family. Have fun Christmas shopping. I may start mine this week as well. Unlike previous years I know exactly what I'm getting the kids so I might as well start now.

Cris, sounds like you are making a great impression at work! Good for you. Sounds like a fun new job task. Training people was one of the favorite parts of my job.

Remodeling, I can't wait to put in the new hardwoods, we keep pushing it back. Now it will early next year. And I really can't wait to redo our bath. I will be inconvenienced for a while for that.

Anyone heard from Holly? I know she leaves for vacation soon but I haven't seen her around here.

Good afternoon,

Windy today with periods of sun and clouds. May have rain this evening.

Michelle hope Bob gives you some ideas for his b-day. My Bob is also extremely hard to buy for. The boys get so frustrated trying to come up with things that they have finally resorted to gift cards to Home Depot, favorite eateries, etc.

Kim bet your on pins and needles waiting to hear about your book writing! I hope you win!!!! Glad you found some boots. I bought a pair from Kohls last month that looked good and felt good on my feet.

Hi Mandi, hope work goes by fast for you and no creppies show up!!!!

Hi Cris, what did you find to do today? Your salad for dinner yesterday sounded really good.

Michelle prayers going up for your mil.

I heard awhile back that there were shortages of certain drugs used in treatment of cancer. Some manufacturers weren't making some of the brands right now. Sure hope this won't be a problem.

Still waiting for the rain, and it is still windy as can be.

Good morning. Today is the day...I'm once again restless and anxious. They just need to announce so we get our answer and can move on.

Hope you have fun today, Michelle. Did you get your Christmas shopping started? Once I find out the details of the contest I would like to get some Christmas cards made.

I didn't return the Ebosser, so I have no one to complain about but me. They were doing pretty good getting back to me, although they kept telling me to do the same thing. Then I got wrapped up in the writing and forgot to take it to the post office. Now I'm stuck with it. The good news is it cuts really well, not that I figured out what sandwich to make for it. The embossing folders are gorgeous in it. The main issue is not getting a consistent emboss on the nesties and the spellbinders and the sizzix. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Oh well.

I think I would like to start Christmas shopping this week as well. We are getting DD a nice camera. We've bought her several of the really inexpensive digital ones but they keep freezing. She loves photography and takes some nice pictures. So that is her big gift. I'm looking for a good one at around 180/200. I don't think she is ready for anything more than that.

Hope everyone has a good day. I'm looking at the clock every two minutes. The offices open at 9 EST and they should start contacting people pretty quickly. They've had weekend to figure out who is the finalist and who is going to send the emails and such.

Michelle, I hope they get the drug for your MIL and they can get her started. I also hope she has a good response to the drug and it begins to work quickly.

Cris, don't sit too long on those needles, today. I don't, I keep getting up and walking around.

Fingers crossed and prayers!

Haven't heard yet. To the best of my knowledge no one has. Been on Twitter for the last 45 min and everyone is going nuts!!

If I start my shopping this week, it will be the earliest I've ever shopped!

Good afternoon,

Mostly sunny but still windy!

Goodness I don't feel too bad that I already have 4 Christmas gifts purchased and wrapped!! Better tag them though before I forget who they are for

Bob asked me last night if I wanted to go to Disney at the beginning of December, sure didn't say "no", guess that will be when the workload slows down for awhile.

Michelle enjoy your day with Bob being home - got a honey do list for him?

Kim thinking positive thoughts for you!!!

Hi Mandi it does make it easier to have a car seat in each vehicle. Does Brianna still have to sit on a booster seat or is she big enough not to have to do this?
