Well, I am back. I came back to the phone being shut off...wooops. LOL, so I haven't been on for a couple days. But I went into work, and dang if they don't want me there almost all week...whew, gunna rest up this coming up weekend I tell ya.
The visit was great with my family...I loved seeing my dad, expecially when he was talking with my kids. Everyone in the family made it so this year was extra special. We the whole family went pretty light on presents, and ya know I think that was or is the better way to go. It was really more about just talking and laughing than what was under the tree. The weather was good too. Talk about God answering prayer...I get all weird when we travel. We had some heavy rain on the way back, and a couple of slick spots, but made it home tuesday night (we had so much fun we stayed an extra day hehehehe)
I got a new blanket for christmas, I swear my sister could go into business sewing, she is so is very pretty with Leopards, and lep pring ribbon, best part is it is fleece, and just so comfy. And a couple of pairs of those fuzzy, warm socks, and a pair of would think my mom and sister think I live in cold country...but that is ok, cause even though I don't, I do like the warm and fuzzy sutff. :)I got some other small stuff, all of it was great, and stuff I would have bought myself, except I am too cheap, so it is all good. :)
I missed you all and hope your holiday was great!!!
And ya know, I am looking forward to 2006, methinks it is gunna be a GREAT year!!!
(((HUGS))) to ya all!!!!

Christmas wishes

Well guys, this is my official MERRY CHRISTMAS post. LOL, no I just want to wish ALL of you who come here a very merry christmas! I hope this holiday shows each and everyone of you the love and joy the season brings!

I want to add here, a quote from a christmas movie, which is becoming my all time favorite christmas movie. From It's a wonderful life. (BTW The first time I had watched this movie all the way through was last year, I highly recomend it) anyhow, on with the quote: 'A man is not a failure if he has friends.' Anyhow that is how I feel today. You all have been so great to me through the last year or so (some longer, some not, some bouncing back after an absence) well people I love you all & thanks :) (((((HUGS)))))

Birthdays down~~~

Christmas to get ready for now...UUUGGGG. Today's weather in Portland is not so good, freezing rain. Alls I can say is it better be done before we hit the road friday. Anyhow Amanda is done with one of her plays, and it was good. Thank goodness, no more 2 practices a day...that was getting old real quick!!

Birthdays, were a success~~She loved all her gifts, and so did hubby. Her drama teacher added an extra cake to the house...can you say, "I will never fit into my jeans again!" Lord knows I love sweets, goodness, I am getting soo fat!! UUUGGGG

Oh well another year to peel off some weight. Anyhow I am feeling like Kevin Costner, in Field of Dreams here...If you post they will come, but then again maybe you all thought I gave up? Me~NEVER GIVE UP!!!! So ok will close for now, I need to get off here and call my mom, to see what is up for food for when we are there, and what I need to bring, ect..have a great day, and stay warm!!

I finally got news~~~

I know I haven't been posting in a long time...but really I didn't have much to say...cept complain, and really I am sure you all don't want to hear I haven't been posting cause it just drags everyone down. But well, I just wanted you all to know, things are going pretty ok here.

Today is a very special day, 17 years ago, I became a please all stop by and wish my lovely daughter a happy day today.

AMANDA, have a great day!! :) (((HUGS)))

Other than that, things are good. She is in two plays (at the same time) needless to say, we (mostly Joe) is running around like a chicken with his head cut off...YIKES!!!

Work is...well work, but feeling pretty good about it. Getting hours finally. It is funny, cause sometimes I get like 6 or 7 days off in a row, then all the sudden I get like 4 calls for one day...geeze people, sycronize (sp??) LOL, but that is life I guess.

Well, I hope all the chirstmas shopping hasn't brought too much stress to anyone. I haven't even started, but I normally don't till after the this coming up weekend, should be when I go...either that or I will add extra stuff today. I am hoping to also get the stuff wrapped...YUCK!! LOL

Well, other than that...our trip is on. Please say a prayer that there will be no ice or snow...I know you all deal with snow on a normal winter...but I don't and it makes driving scary for us...please cross your fingers, as it is real important for us to go this year. My dad will be there the friday before christmas (the day we plan to leave) so we are hoping to get together and have a nice family dinner with him...seeing as I haven't seen him a quite a few years this will be special.

Well other than that I just wanted to drop in and say HI...wish you all the best, and send along my special wishes to each and everyone of ya!!
(((((HUGS))))) Liz
