Cha-Ching & TGIF!

It's finally chilly here in coastal NC...a good 53 degrees right now and going to about 35 ish tonight.   Wow....straight from A/C to heat.  What happened to FALL???  I don't like to wear a coat, I'm pretty happy in a long sleeve T-shirt....fugget that bulkiness of a coat.

Can you believe it is NOVEMBER already?  I was just looking at the calendar on my desk and WOW.....3 more weekends of Nutcracker Practice, then Thanksgiving, then immediately on that Friday is dress rehearsal and the program on Saturday and Sunday.  Where does the time go?  That means approximately 8 weeks till Christmas.  (thud - me falling on floor)

OK I'm back......Christmas!!  Wow...I do have some gifts already and have a pretty good idea on most things, like Tom's nephew's and those that will be mail-away's.  Now the best news is this......

.......I stopped by the farm this morning before work and wanted my stepDad to try on a jacket I had got.  Well it turned out to be a MEDIUM instead of an XL like I thought, so that was a bust.  Guess my lil brother will get it instead.  Anywho...he says to me "you still wanting some shopping money?".

Say what?  Oh hell yes!  So he pealed me off some cha-ching.  Surprise me!  Love me some surprises. 

I talked to my bestestfriendinthewholeworldcindilou today and yesterday.  She's been in Chicago for about 3 weeks now and I'm ready for her to come home.  Seems she's gotten in touch with a high school boyfriend "love" of her life and she's gonna drag him here.  They'll be here in about 10 days.  It's too friggin cold up there for her or me!  Gimme my rainbows and T-shirts!  Fugget snow angels I can make sand angels here!

Coworker got a call today from her doc...seems there may be signs of pre-cancerous cells in her cervix.  She's pretty upset.  I said "nah, just go have a hysterectomy" (she's 50)...been trying to keep her spirits up.  She's meeting with me and my friend Holly after work today.  Some girl time will be nice.

I think I'm gonna bail out of Nut practice for Saturday and try and get some things taken care of around the house.  Think I'll get anywhere??

Have a great weekend out there! and be safe!

It's always good to get some money that you weren't really expecting!  Yippee.  It was chilly here too.  I don't think I'd like living in Chicago either!  Too cold.

IN THE 30'S HERE IN JERSEY MOST OF THE TIME IT DROPS ALOT AT NIGHT.  EVERYTHING IS FROSTY IN THE MORNINGS.  I HATE JACKETS AND STUFF ALSO.  I WOULD RATHER BE MORE COMFORTABLE THAN ALL PADDED UP AND BULKY!   I STARTED CHRISTMAS SHOPPING BUT I NEVER FINISHED DUE TO ME BEING ON BED REST FOR MOST OF THIS PREGNANCY!  I HOPE I CAN FINISH BEFORE CHRITMAS COMES, I HATE RUSHING!
TAKE CARE
HUGS

Yes the year has flown by and soon it will be 2007.  The older you get the faster it seems to go.  Anyway, have a good weekend and stay warm.

Hey,
Let your friend know the precancerous cells are no biggie. They do a simple in office procedure to remove the cells. Been there, done that.
Hope you have a great weekend and hope it's warm enough for flip flops.
Martha :-)

Girl, you need to switch to decaf. LOL J/K.  You just sound so happy and upbeat and peppy.  LOL Guess I'm draggin cuz it's 2am. Duh!  I've been doing a little Christmas shopping myself.  I like to do what I can online.  I am getting to where I just hate the crowds and traffic.  Hope you got a lot accomplished today.  Good luck with your rehersals and all!!

Yikes, cancer cells in the cervix is an epidemic right now.  I'm dealing with my Megan and this same thing.  Of course, Pa. is beyond cold right now.  I hate it.  HUGS  chris

Happy TGIF, though it is Sunday and I'm finding entries slowly as I race thru my 895 alerts.  So glad you are having chilly weather like we are.  Isn't it wonderful??????  Ya know I would say that.  I still think we should just move in with you and get our cabin in NC instead of move in with my sister.  We might kill eachother.  LOL.  But you and I would just be out there having those margeuritas and totally relaxing by the pool peering at Avon stuff and doing our nails together, and sewing stuff when we weren't by the pool.  And you know I would clean the bathroom for ya.  LOL.  Hugs,
Lisa

Just stopping by to say hello. It's been getting down in the 20's here in Michigan at night! Yes, Christmas is right around the corner, I'm excited! I love Christmas. I had pre-cancerous cells in my cervix 18 years ago. They ended up doing cryo-surgery (where they freeze your cervix). It killed the cells and it never came back. I remember how stressful and scarey it was though. As long as you catch it at the pre-cancerous stage, it's usually very treatable. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
