Dear friends

So, I know it’s been a while since I posted, and honestly, I am so cranky I don’t even care. But I know what it’s like to check someone’s blog and have nothing new going on, so for my ol’ faithful readers, this post is for you!
Not too much going on in my neck of the woods. Oh, ‘cept our landlords put up the NO PARKING signs for the winter (they do it the second it starts snowing out!).
So if you are coming to visit, you have to park on the main road. Sick, I know. And what’s worse is that they hardly ever salt the driveway, so chances are if you are coming to visit me, after parking on the road, you will not make it to my door, because you will have broken your back first. Good luck with that!
In other news, Josh and I celebrated American thanksgiving with the Taylor’s and Sorensen’s. It was quite lovely, thanks to Jo for having us. Here we are at the supper table enjoying our luscious food. Oh and then we went to the Allred’s for pie, and Karlee made this awesome pecan (PEE-CAN, not PE-CON) pie. It was awesome, even if it didn’t set right. It all goes down the same way!!
Um, what else is going on? I am getting excited for Christmas. We put up our decorations at work, so it’s quite festive in here. We have our nice tree in the lobby.And our badness tree in the lounge. We all got together and made ornaments, it was nice for a Friday afternoon. Also, we have Christmas movies playing on the screen behind me, so I get glimpses of Charlie Brown, the Grinch and more, hanging out in the office. It’s really great.
Other than that, Josh and I are just hanging out in the evenings when we have time. He has exams the next two weeks, so he’s studying. But his classes are all over, so that means a little more time for us. I can’t wait for my Christmas break from work. 10 days and I’ll love every minute of it.
Anyone else super stoked for vacation?

Ahh the staff naughty christmas tree...they whip out some interesting things. Is that Angus I see?? Is he working there again? So I need to talk to you about your blog. I can't read it. Like I saw that you posted this morning but I had to wait until night time to read it cause the green and the background...just make for hard reading. And I have eagle eyes normally so it's a little hard on my self esteem and stuff. Anyway good post...hope putting up the xmas stuff at work wasn't too painful and I hope I had it organized...I was in my "who cares I'm leaving" mode at that time.

Um...10 days, I am totally jealous! That's awesome! I get 2 days! Your tree's look great! We decorated our office as well. Our tree is not as big as yours...I'll have to bring my camera to work.
Love the hand made decorations!

Oh I'm so jealous that you get 10 days off...you are soooo lucky...I think I'll have 3 maybe 4 days off if they don't open us on boxing day!! I love that your work is all set up for the holidays...too fun!! I appreciated reading the new post...you may not think you have anything to post about but it was fun to read and see the pictures. Looks like Thanksgiving was a blast!!!

...Donny & Karlee... said...

All I can say is, "It's about darn time!!" I was beginning to give up on you! You were way over due for this post! You don't have to park WAY out on the road do you? That stinks! I'm glad that you liked the PICAN pie!!

JO said...

Oh great, now I am afraid of coming over to visit in the event that I might break my back!!! I guess you will just have to come to my house more often. I like all of the christmas pics from work. I love that Christmas movies play all day just behind your desk. I am glad you liked American Thanksgiving! Thanks for celebrating with us.
