    not sure about by where you live, but we are actually getting a bunch of Post Offices closed near me..Not much snail mail anymore....If it wasn't for the flat rate boxes, I would have opted for UPS
    Ready for a drink now..been a long day----what's the specialty tonight?

    Drink sounds good. How about some rum punch? Orange/Pineapple juice, coconut creme, rum....mix well and sprinkle top with nutmeg. Enjoy!

    Well, USPS says my Santaee got her package today. But my mail lady didn't bring me nothing but the weekly grocery store ad!
    Since it's cold outside, how about some hot cocoa with a little Bailey's in it? Yummy!!!

    Dear Secret Santa............

    It was so nice of you to leave me a present by my front door...........can't wait to tear into it............but I must be good.........It will be hard to wait till tomorrow but some how I must.....because I heard you have to ability to turn your presents into coal if opened early. I asked all my neighbors if you had Dancer and Prancer with you but nobody saw you............

    Just in case I forget.........Thank you...............

    I now know I have been good enough to receive something.........wonder what it could be..........I hear the bells.............................yes .........I shook it.................

    May you nose be rosey.............and your belly jiggle like jelly..........Santa your the best...........................

    Well, now that my SS packages are mailed, I'm sliding over into the naughty corner and having myself a little drinky-pooh. Santa must have caught me being naughty this year 'cause I'm still waiting for my SS package. Hoping it arrives soon....this waiting will drive me nutz....or make me thirsty....hehehehe. Some eggnog with rum, or maybe alittle Captain and coke.....hmmmm....what will help me forget......that my SS package isn't here yet.
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    Sorry that I've been so scarce lately. Have been having some house/yard work done and not having fun with it.
    Plus, all day today, I spent it at the hospital with Lauren. Ok, Lauren was in a room and the 3 tots and I hung out waiting to find out what was going on. Nope, no baby yet, BUT......she's back at the hospital.
    It's 3am and there was no way I could take the kids out in the cold, so a lady from church took her. I'll find out what's going on as soon as Lauren let's me know. Not sure if Donny will make the birth, but crossing fingers. The lady who took Lauren says she'll come back for the kids. She really doesn't have to, she has 4 of her own and I can ask the lady next door if she'll take the tots for a bit. She had already volunteered to do this for us. She has 6 kids and 3 of them are teens, so she'll have help, not like she's not used to having a ton of kids around lol

    I'm glad packages are wizzing their way to their new homes and everyone is "sort of" behaving........lol

    My jingle bells are packed along with lots of goodies. Going to the P.O. at lunchtime to hand it over to the delivery elves. Hope they handle this one with care. It's got lots of love in it, but no food due to some allergies at the other end, I thought it best to leave out any food.

    Mailed my SS package this morning. Had to take everything out of the original box and get one size larger.....it wouldn't stay closed. No problem. You should have seen all the stuff I had strung out on the one table. A lady came up to me and asked where I got certain items cause she would love to have it. Hope my SS likes it too. I pretty much like to get stuff for people that I would like to have. So, SS if you don't like any of it just send it back!!!!!

    Got a package in the mail yesterday. Had to PM Terri to see if it was Secret Santa or not. She said she'd check and get back with me - still no word!!! That package is sitting on the kitchen island ASKING to be opened - Demanding to be opened. Please let me know if I can open before Dec 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm bringing it with me over to the naughty corner so in case I can open it early, I'll have it with me.
