Lory, yes, I am a Red Hatter! You and your friend could join an established group, or start your own. The leader of a group is usually called the Queen. Purple clothes and red hats except for the month your birthday comes in, then the colors are reversed. We have 12 in our group. We go out to eat once a month and usually one other activity -- we go to plays and concerts (leave the hats off so the members of the audience behind us can see), shopping trips to other towns and craft shows, museum tours, even a cornfield maze! -- all kinds of things. Sometimes the whole group doesn't go to something but we each know we can get one or two of the ladies to go with us to some event.

Three classes today -- a spinning class, Pilates and a toning and strengthening class -- plus a little indoor walking and recumbent biking. More energy today but a long car trip to an evening meeting tonight so I may just sleep in tomorrow.

Have fun, everyone! Weekend's coming!

Hey everyone - can't begin to express how upset i was over the events in CT today. I do not understand our world sometimes.

I'm writing out my Christmas cards, saying a prayer for each family. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life. Thank you to each of you for being one of those people

My heart is still so numb- I cannot fathom everything that occurred today- The evil that men do- it's evident biblcally speaking, that the demon is running amok. Spent a better part of the day praying- It's not for me to understand.

Been up with Dad and Drs. We had the priest come yesterday for last rights. My boys and sis goes up on the weekends so staying here today unless I have to go down. Have the FD xmas party tonight and DH has been with me 24/7 so I guess I'll go for a little while, but really would rather stay home.

Christina ss no job yet, but house cleaning is a great idea. That's how I started up my own cleaning business. Make up some cards and place them around. Condo complexes are great. I charge depending on the size of the homes. 25 to 40.00 dollars an hour per worker. And the best thing is that they don't like to be there.

Tex I'm a Red Hatter too. We also go to dinner once a month and plan a day trip of some sorts now and then.

Lory I feel the same, can't even listen to the news on the shootings. Don't understand how someone can be that demented that they will kill others instead of just themselves. So close to here that the churches are holding special prayers tomorrow morning which I will be attending.

Not getting into a discussion about our 2nd Amendment. The issue is not about guns/knives or any other item that can be used to kill someone. Read the article below, it touches on the real issue. I can tell you personally I know 2 families dealing with this very same thing. When you read into the history of these individuals that have carried out these horrific crimes you learn about the lack of avenues out there for the families.

Long day today and I'm exhausted. My Dad passed away yesterday, so had to go down to make all the arraingments. The funeral won't be until Dec 27th as he is being creamated. Can't way for a new year to get here. I need it.

Christina how's the job hunting going? Hope it good news.

Will be back after I make DH some dinner and see how everyone is doing. I looks like it's been pretty slow on here. You all must be getting ready for xmas.

Hey, I'm here.
Misty. I am just so sorry . Praying for you and your family. Such a loss for you all right at the holidays , makes it even harder I'm sure. ((hugs)). Get some rest, you have to be just completely exhausted.
Christina I'm sorry no one called you back . Are things any better ?

Trying to get in the spirit of the season, but I have more blah days than up. Not sure if it's the warm weather, not seeing Shelby, burned out from DH and I working opposite, or what...... making some cookies,toffee, and peanut brittle today. But just not into it
DH and I went to Houston yesterday and finished up most of the shopping. BTW, his mother broke her hip and is in the hospital again.......ugh.

Hope you all are doing ok and I hope you all have a wonderful, blessed holiday week !

Well, mixed up both kinds of cookies - made the toffee, but gonna wait to cook the cookies and make the brittle till tomorrow. Just woke up in the WORST mood today ! I've been trying to get out of it all day, but think I'll just have a drinkie poo and watch some TV and go to bed early. I stayed up till like 3-4am last night......

And....my kitchen is totally bombed from supper and all the cookie stuff...... need to clean it and don't want to. Need a santa's helper

Misty, so sorry about your dad. Prayers for you and your family.

Yes, I've been down about the Newtown tragedy too. After all my years of teaching elementary school, it touches pretty close.

On a happy note, DH surprised me last night with a yellow lab puppy! I haven't gotten a Christmas puppy since second grade!

Still exercising -- Pilates class, aqua boot camp and aqua zumba today. Was wrinkled as a prune by the time I got out of the pool!

Tonight is my 30th wedding anniversary . Made DH his favorite meal, king ranch chicken before he went to work.

It's finally cold here and it's so nice !

Tx - so happy you got a puppy ! I love love love dogs ! (especially sweet puppies )

Thinking tomorrow I may head out for the movies to see the new Barbra Striesand comedy ~~ I have so much cleaning and prep cooking to do, but want to enjoy my day too. Will have Shelby from Sat - Mon when all are here for Christmas eve.

Hope you all are doing well !
