"THANK YOU" again Anni for this wonderful Award. I really appreciate it.
Well, today is BooMama's "Christmas Tour of Homes". I do hope everyone will have a great time. I'm sorry to say that I won't be able to participate this year. As much as I was looking forward to it, I just can't do it this year. Hubby talked to his friend about the Team Driving Job that I had mentioned a few days ago. Come to find out, his team driver is going to stay with him. So, that means my hubby lost out on that job. There is another possibility. Hubby talked to his Uncle about teaming up again with the company they worked for before, and his uncle said he would team up with hubby. Hubby is suppose to call the company sometime today and see if they have anything for them. I sure hope they do have something for them, because if they don't, then I don't know what we will do. I ask that yall PLEASE keep praying that God will find hubby a job. I would so appreciate it. Anyway, I may visit today and see everyone's decorations.
I did manage to visit a few friends last night. It was a busy weekend around here. Hubby got in Friday afternoon while I was at the girls School Christmas Parties. I had a good time out at the School. I had to go from one room to the other so I could be at both of the girl's parties. I stayed a little while in one room and then went to the other room for a while. Everyone had a good time and they had chips and dips, cookies, candy, and soda's. I had a little to eat in each of my girl's rooms. Our girl's had plans to stay all night with my Sister on Friday night. My youngest daughter had a friend to go with her down there. Me and hubby had another "ALONE" night Friday night. We went to the local Cowboy Grill Restaurant here in town and ate supper. We started out with an appetizer of Loaded Chips. Hubby had a half rack of baby back ribs with the trimmings to go with it. I had a hamburger steak with baked potato. It was good. I couldn't eat all of my hamburger steak, so I had to bring it home. After our supper, we went to our local gas station here in town. You can rent movies there also. In fact, that is the only place in town to rent movies. We rented the movie "Evan Almighty". It was a good and funny movie. We also rented "The Wendall Baker Story". It was a good movie also, but still I have no clue who Wendall Baker is. I had a couple of Pina Coloda Wine Coolers and hubby had a couple of beers while we watched the movies. It was such a relaxing and enjoyable evening just the 2 of us. Saturday morning we had to get up early. Our oldest daughter had a Basketball Game in Armorel, AR. That's about an hour drive from where we live. She played at 10:30a.m. but had to be there at 10:00a.m. My Sister took her to the game since our girls had stayed all night at her house. We just met them over there. Our girls ended up winning the game 21 to 19. It was a very close game. We were behind at half-time by 3 points. But, we came back and ended up winning the game tho. GO REBELS. She has ball practice tonight. Then, this coming Thursday night, we have got to go to Monette, AR. This is going to be a tough game. This is the team that they played a while back here at home where the girls did the hitting and all. So, Thursday night we have to play them on their territory. They are going to be out for blood so to speak. They are bound and determined to beat us. I may need a nerve pill before I go to that game. LOL. I just hope they don't do the things there that they did when we played them here at home. We will see. Anyway, after our daughter's game was over Saturday morning, we went to the Wal-Mart in Blytheville to buy some groceries. It was crowded, but it didn't seem to be as crowded as the Wal-Mart in Jonesboro, AR. We didn't even have to wait in line very long to get checked out. After we left Wal-Mart, we were all hungry. We stopped at the Sonic there in Blytheville. The girl's used their Sonic Gift Cards that they had received from "Santa" on Tuesday night to buy their lunch. Me and hubby bought our own lunch. After we finished with our lunch, we came back home and I had groceries to put up. I was so tired and I didn't even cook Saturday night. We just snacked around. Our oldest daughter had a friend over to stay all night with her and we rented some more movies. We rented the movie "Waitress". Hubby had watched it on Sunday afternoon. I was alseep when he watched it but got up in time to see the end of it. He watched it over again so I could see it all. It was a very good movie. He had rented some scarry movies as well. I don't watch those kind. My Sister came and got our girls yesterday afternoon and took them to Jonesboro to have some pictures made. My Sister had their pictures made and will give them to our Parents for Christmas. When they got home last night, their hair was so pretty. My Sister had curled their hair and had done their make-up and they looked beautiful. I can't wait to see the pictures. Hubby rented some more movies last night. Most of them were scarry movies again. I picked out the movie "Georgia Rules". We didn't get to watch it last night. I will try and watch it sometime today. Me and hubby had Hoagie Sandwiches for our supper last night with some chips. The girls had already eaten when they got home. My Sister took them to Ryan's in Jonesboro after they had their pictures made. I also did laundry yesterday. I did 3 loads. I still have one more load to do today. So, that has caught me up on what's been happening around here over the weekend.
We didn't get the Snow that was predicted. It started raining around 11:00p.m. Friday night and it rained hard. It rained all day again on Saturday. We had to travel in it and it wasn't fun. It was a cold rain too. It was windy outside as well. On our way home from Armorel and Blytheville Saturday afternoon, it got foggy. It wasn't so foggy that you couldn't see in front of you, but it was still foggy. By the time we got close to Caraway, it wasn't foggy. God gave us safe travel for Saturday. "THANK YOU GOD" for watching over us. It finally quit raining late Saturday afternoon. But it was still cold and windy.
The girls have a short week this week. They go to School all day today and then a half a day on Tuesday and Wednesday. I did find out that they don't really have to go at all this week if they don't want to. They aren't going to count it against them if they don't go. They are both going today. I will see what they want to do for Tuesday and Wednesday. They will be out for Christmas Break and have to return back to School on January 2, 2008.
Well, I guess I will go do some more visiting and see who is ready for coffee. I am having my first cup as I'm typing this. I do hope everyone has a great Monday and enjoy BooMama's Christmas Tour of Homes. Take care my friends and May God Bless Each and Everyone of You. May your day be filled with Love, Joy, and Peace.
LOVE & HUGS,
