    Good morning! :kiss

    I just finished a 3-11pm shift at my PRN job not too long ago. I'm tired, groggy, and have a little headache, so it's time for me to 'hit the sack' and go to sleep.

    Thanks for starting the thread, Zooz.

    Take care, and have a blessed day!

    Well folks, I'm off out to a friend's house. She's hosting a "Girl's night in" gathering.
    We each have to bring a plate of food to share, our bathers, (swimmers, togs, whatever you call those things for going into the water!LOL) for lounging in the spa in, (they have a HUGE 12 person spa!), and either our PJ's or some other comfortable clothing for relaxing in after the spa and feast, to watch a "chick' flick! LOL
    You don't have to just be a teenager to have fun with your girlfriend's! LOL

    Enjoy your day and stay safe and well!

    Grace, sounds like LOADS of fun!! Enjoy!
    (and, Happy Belated Anniversary!)

    Hi Zooz (thanks for starting the thread), space (get some rest!) and commuter (you get some rest too!!)!

    Dh and I just got home from helping w/music for a dept Christmas program.
    VERY interesting evening! Great meal, with international flavors!
    Evening program consisted of (besides the donut shop gang's 1/2 hr of music), among other things:
    musical chairs game
    Nepal folk dancer
    Arabic dancer
    Philippine dancer
    Kid's choir (Feliz Navidad)
    Adult choir (O Holy Night)
    Line dancing exhibition (select employees)
    Child singing solo (a lovely song- didn't catch the title - something about a Christmas list or wish . . )

    They were a great group, very enthusiastic, very ethnically diverse!

    But between tonight and last night's potluck and jam, I'm TIRED!!!!

    Gonna git to bed.
    We have a rehearsal tomorrow nite at 7pm.

    Y'all sleep well, and have a good FRIDAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS!! :Holly3: :Holly3:

    I DO believe in Santa!!! :Holly2: :Holly2:

    Sounds like a fun night Dianah . . . as usual, your exciting life!

    It is freezing cold here - fairly clear, which makes the cold worse. Brought the dog in even though he made a large poop mess in the basement this morning and I was tempted to leave him out. I feed him in the morning hoping he will get rid of it all before coming in the house. He is 10 years old - but I guess that wood pile is just too tempting.

    My 6 year old jumped up on the sink tonight to get his toothpaste and hit his head on the metal pointed end of the very old medicine cabinet - blood everywhere. He had a pretty decent gouge and I almost took him in to get stitches but I think he will be ok. Poor guy - shook him up to see all that blood.

    My oldest flies in from So. Cal tomorrow night for Christmas. My #2 son wants to borrow our KIA for a ski trip on Saturday. I'm a bit nervous about that - this is the kid who has had 4 accidents (well, in two he was not driving).

    Grace - hope you have a great time . . . a soak in a hottub sounds good tonight.

    Happy Friday Morning to you All,

    Yayyyy I am thankful it is Friday and I get a chance to chill over the weekend.

    Taking around a potential new employee today to show her what Hospice is all about and what we do in the pts homes.

    I hope and pray she likes what she sees so she can eventually take some patients from me! Hahahahaha Sabby the Poet

    Hubby's son has arrived from San Jose so yippee will be a real family Christmas this year with everyone here :spin::spin::spin: He is only around 6ft 4" I really enjoy hugging his knees LOL

    Just need to be sneaky and get the final few things for da hubby for Christmas today and THEN try to get them in the house Hard to do as he is worse that any child I know when it comes to presents.

    Sorry to hear of Adam's plight netters.

    How is your castrated patient? Did not realize they do that since I had left HH a few years ago!! LOL

    Jo hope your Father improves with his moods. I am glad you filled your Mum into things to keep an eye out for. I am truly sorry for the loss of your Grandmother. May you find comfort in your sweet memories of her.

    Raining here today YIPPEE, we need the earth quenched so badly.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm I wonder how Gracie's night with the women are going? Yeah chick flick for sure Those bunch are probably watching something steamy more like it!! Just want to call it a 'chick flick' RIGHT!!

    Ok ironing done, highlights to hair done, just got the polishing of da furniture and all house work is done. Got home and hubby had vacuumed, cleaned and polished all hard wood floors and cleaned all the bathrooms. House smelt bootiful when I got home from work. Hmmmm yeah me finks I will keep him around eh?

    Sounds like the Christmas Card club thingie that you have going on sounds like it will be a fun thing to be part of. I must join up next year. Shame these eyes did not see the post until it was too late. Typical of me at times. What a sweet idea who ever thought it up

    Well off to get another cuppa of java and polish hahahahha Love housework. I am purdy darn good at it too, feed me and water me and I am yours if you need help

    Have a wonderful day what ever you are up too and enjoy life as it is fleeting for many.

    Smile and the world will smile along with you.

    Just gotta say this year has been so different when out and about. People here are smiling more, not rushing around as much which is soooo nice. Maybe people are actually taking stock of their blessings and realize this.

    I am in a lovey dovey mood me thinks!!

    Tammy I forgot to wish you a Happy Belated Birthday... I hope it was a beaut day for you.

    Good morning all.

    Warmer day around here, supposed to go to near zero (Celsius). Have some projects to do.

    Bittersweet day today. My baby brother would have been 38 years old; his birthday is December 21. It's been almost 3 years since he took his life - I can't believe it's been that long. I didn't expect to have this pit in my stomach today.

    Miss you JP.
