Keep your chin up!

Enjoy your concert.

I think my Partner is gonna loose his job at BOA in Corporate Real Estate....but it is what it is.

We have a Christmas party tomorrow night and I'm hoping to get some decorating done this weekend. DH has been working like crazy the last couple of weeks and we haven't had time to get a tree yet. Normally we get one the day after Thanksgiving.

Tonight we have date night, kids are with my parents, so we will have dinner then possibly finish the shopping.

Tomorrow getting the car serviced first thing in the morning, then off to kid's sporting events.
Hopefully some time in the afternoon to work in my man cave, er, garage.
Mullman, I think you and your wife are the neatest couple - having a regular date nite. I so admire that you all regularly do that . . .

DW is taking me out for birthday dinner tonight. (WooHoo)

Then I have to finish watching my neighbors put up their elaborate Christmas light displays! We decided not to do any outside decorations this year (except maybe a couple wreaths & bows).

Tomorrow, I have to change the antifreeze in DS's vehicle.

Sunday is the day I'll follow my fantasy football team in the playoff's.

And lastly, I took a vacation day on Monday, so I'll stay off the roads that morning and do my part to make your commute better!

We're not decorating much this year - no tree - since we're going to my parent's in California for Christmas week, so that eases my load. Although if it's like last year, my mom will wait until we get there to get the tree and decorate it - well, I'LL decorate it!! Some things never change!!!
Hope you have a good day tomorrow . .. and you gotta get packed up if you are leaving to CA!!! WOO HOO! What a great trip!
