Daughter called from work this afternoon, asking if I could pick her up and take her home.  She's been battling bronchitis for a couple of days, and today it won.  An employee with a hacking cough isn't the best thing for a restaurant.

I'm getting word from a few of you that you've sent your TIS Swap packages already.  The deadline is two weeks from today.  I'm anxious to see what everyone gets!

  2. Love to take care of my kiddos. Blankie, tissues, clicker YES

  3. I want someone to take care of ME. (As in, MEMEMEMEME!)



For some reason, this year I am constantly moving Christmas stuff around the house.  I'm not sure why things are so unsettled, but they...
