It's Hump Day!!!

I cannot wait until Friday!!!!!!!! I had a nice evening at home last night. Brian (my Hubby) and I curled up on the couch together, watched the new TV, and fell asleep in each others arms. He is a sweetie. I am a lucky girl.
I got up this morning and made cinnamon rolls for all of us. They were yummy!! Then I went into my son's room to pick up some dishes and found where he had written on a note a girl wrote him in school, he wrote the comment..."Mom and Dad are pricks!" Isn't that lovely. I spent 1 hour after work yesterday wrapping all of his awesome Christmas presents and this morning I felt like taking them out of the house and delivering them to some poor kid who knows how to appreciate things. He is going thru a lot of changes right now and entering those terrible teenage years. I am reading two books trying to get some idea of how to handle his attitude. Guess this is all just part of being a parent.
I talked to my sister yesterday in Roan Mtn, TN...they had 6 inches of snow. I would love to see some snow like that here. It puts you in the Christmas mood.
My mother sent me a package of goodies from Hickory Farms in the mail yesterday. I was surprised because I wasn't expecting an early Christmas treat.
My poor little dog Rascal (A Jack Russell) had to sleep in Ryan's room last night. He was so funny this morning though...I heard him after I got out of the shower whining to get out of the room so I opened the door and he went dashing all over the house then bounded into our bedroom and pounced into the bed where Brian was sound asleep. He was so excited to be FREE! He almost always sleeps with us but every now and then we let Ryan take him to bed. Man does he hate that! He was so happy to be able to crawl into bed with his master for a little bit. Dogs are AWESOME!
My goal for today is to clean out my basement. I have got to get back to my workout. I am motivated now because we moved our old big screen TV down there so now I have a reason to clean everything up and get back at it. I think instead of selling it (the old Big Screen) I will just keep it down there so I can watch it while I walk the treadmill and use the weight machine. Maybe get some of those workout videos too.


Only 13 Shopping Days Til Christmas!!!

Well Christmas is almost here & I can actually say I am almost done shopping. Usually I get an early start but not this year. I didn't start shopping until mid-November for my son who is very hard to buy for now. He isn't into toys anymore...he is almost 13 & more into music & girls. I got him an MP3 player and clothes, also a few cool items for his room. I have successfully purchased gifts for everyone on my list except for my dad & brother-in-law. But they shouldn't be hard to find something for last minute. I may just get them some gift certificates.
My husband and I went out last night and bought our Christmas present for each other. We bought a 46 inch, Toshiba, Big Screen, HD TV!!!!!! I absolutely love it!!! It has the clearest picture and the best color. I also love the sound that comes out of it because it has the surround sound feature built in. We only had to give $1000 for it which I thought was a GREAT deal! I think it is the best Christmas present EVER!
I watched the movies "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" & "The Fantastic Four" over the weekend. I loved "Mr. & Mrs. Smith"...thought it was hillarious as well as action packed! "The Fantastic Four" was ok but it is more my hubby's type of movie.
My son Ryan had a dance at school on Friday night so I enjoyed the quiet time. I went to Fred's and took him a lighter I had bought for him while in Tunica, MS last week. He absolutely loved it. We had a drink and talked for awhile...he wanted to know all about the trip. Then Robin came by and had a few Corona's with me. Saturday Brian & I laid around most of the day...slept until after 12pm then we went to the mall & shopped. Last night my sister Amber and her husband Ed came by before taking my neice Taylor back to her father's house. They had been in Blacksburg, VA visiting Ed's daughters. You see Ed is almost 50 years old and my sister is 30. Ed became a Grandfather over the weekend so they drove up to see the new baby. The funny thing is that my sister Amber is pregnant with their child. So they will have a grandchild that is older than their own child. Man this is a crazy world we live in.
Catcha Later!
