    according to the alaska department of fish and game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late november to mid-december. female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting santa's reindeer, every single one of them, from rudolph to blitzen, had to be a girl.we should've known... only women would be able to drag a fat-a** man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

    great weather, it has warmed up nicely to nearly 50 degrees. good day to decorate the front door. will pull up a few things from the basement and try to get in the holiday spirit . just a very few favorite items, though. and our little table top tree. that outta do it.

    Jnette, that breakfast looks yummy!!

    Maybe I'll go get some breakfast with the parents, and then get started on the shopping. Gotta have some fuel to brave the crowds!

    It actually rained ALL night last night ..... I love this, rain 2 weekends in a row!! I don't think that's ever happened before here. I slept great, all cuddled in my cozy bed while listening to the rain lightly fall. Ahhh

    Good morning!

    jmg, hope your bil is doing well postop.

    Alois, it'll be tough but you'll survive.

    Zuzi, your post is overflowing with joy and it's infectious!!
    Glad you had such a good time last night (I've seen the same: those older couples dancing WONDERFULLY together, and it's inspiring!)!

    Sabby, those piccys are crazy, lol!!

    Zooz, WOW, aced the test!! Congrats!
    Fingers crossed for you to get into the program you want.

    dria, that little tidbit of information about the reindeer was a hoot!!!


    It's still cloudy out, may sprinkle yet today.
    It rained most of yesterday (we SO need it! and, it's unusual to get rain so early here).

    Got church this morning and then take ds to the afternoon Christmas program, where he's helping behind-the-scenes.
    Other than that, not much planned.

    Y'all have a good day!

    Morning, All:

    Went to bed at 7:30 last night. I was not only tired and depressed, but physically sick after eating pizza which had been delivered to our office for lunch. Either the pepperoni or cheese (or both) was "tainted", and I don't think I'll be eating another pizza from Pizza Hut anytime soon.

    Still no word as to whether or not I am going to be called back for a second interview for that Documentation Specialist position I originally interviewed for on the 29th. I sent the HR Rep an e-mail this morning and asked her to let me know something, as my hours with home care have been cut to the bone. I also found out this week that the Grant money which the State has allocated for the programs we serve has run out...and we have no clue as to when (or if) they will release any additional funding. In other words, I am out of work...again.

    The other nurse who worked with me (and who I trained), saw this coming and quit. She was able to find another position in Nursing Research, her love. Our Manager immediately replaced her with another nurse, who is being allowed to work in the office full- time, auditing charts. I wasn't asked. :angryfire So, what am I supposed to do, in the meantime? Give my Grandchildren nothing for Christmas?

    I hate this business. I really do, and the sooner I get out of it, the better off I am going to be!

    morning everyone...
    ot was called off for today...wahoooooooooo!!!!!! very glad to have the whole day back to myself!!!!!
    went out to dinner last nite at a rainforest cafe. we had never been there before, so it was fun! the pastalaya i ordered and the ribs dj had were divine! and dj surprised me with a "im so proud of you for going back to school gift." dunno if i mentioned it before, but he's really getting a kick out of the idea that he is with a college student at his ripe ol age of 37. at any rate, it was a good reminder of why i love him so much, considering i swear hes been making an effort to drive me crazy lately.
    the coffee is done, now to putter around and get motivated for the day. i had had plans to hit starbucks and meet a colleague for breakfast prior to going in to work. im a little sad about not getting my daily triple grande mocha fix, but not sad enough to bundle up and go out! its about 10 degrees here presently. even the dogs didnt goof around when doing their business. we did some shopping last nite, and got a santa claus, reindeer, and elf suit for them. they look hilarious! too bad i've already finished my christmas cards, they would have been great!!!!!
    awww... dria.. soundls like you had a wonderful evening out with dh. enjoy the good times.
    and yes, we do want pics of your furbabies in their little outfits !!! :chuckle

    ten degrees.... brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rr. :stone

    bahahaha !!! sounds like me only far too often !!! :d

    i did get some things brought up from the basement, however. hard to resiest the temptation to put it all out... nope, not gonna do it this year!
    set up the kitchen table centerpiece, as it's always been a favorite.. very simple, serene, lovely.

    put out dh's favorite frosted santa, a few special candles, and for the coffee table my lovely two caroling angels holding their candle lamp. also very simple, but beautiful. on a christmas doiley i've had since i was a kid in germany still.
    in front of the tv, i set up my santa collection. that's going to be it. no more.

    still haven't found the door wreath.. gotta get back downstairs and hunt it down.

    and lastly, our little tree.. which i just throw a bag over every year and store in the basement. it's all set up and ready to go each year.

    used to love decorating a real tree when the kids were home. but anymore, it's too much.. especially when you work all the time. :stone
    not really any time off to enjoy the holidays, so i don't care to add any more "work" to it. the simpler the better. maybe once that grandbaby is here, i'll go all out again, eh?

    morning all,

    Back from early hockey , tied the game and only 1 offside call on ds so all in all a good game, and we weren't our usual late selves, so no dirty looks from the coach either. Out for breakfast and voila back home , where i should be doing housework and finishing painting the dang bathroom ceiling but just so don't feel like it yet. So think I will continue to caffeinate the bod and perhaps get a nap in before going to work tonight.!! Have a great day everyone, sun is shining here so can't be too bad.
