Distance makes the heart grow fonder.....

.....and now that my three children, who all have very strong personalities and opinions, are all back at school I'm finding myself feeling much fonder of them! ;)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....

on my blog and in my house.

Well okay not in my house, yet, but it will before the day is done.

Technically I'm still in my jammies but as soon as I shower and get dressed I am cleaning up my kitchen and then taking down all the Thanksgiving decorations in order to put up the Christmas ones. =)

Yes, I am one of THOSE people who like to put up Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. I never used to be this way, especially when I was working in a Hallmark store, where ornaments were put up in JULY!!! But as I get further and further away from that Christmas overload I find I really like decorating for Christmas as soon as possible.

The only other holiday I enjoy decorating for is Halloween, where I have been known to put up decorations for in September, like right after Labor Day. But one too many years of getting bugged about it from my dear sweet hubby has made me to wait until October 1st before I put out the ghosts, witches and other fun decorations.

So with that said, I hope you enjoy my newly decked out Christmas blog. I'll try not to change it too many times before Christmas comes, but knowing myself the way I do, I can't promise anything ;)

Job Hunt 2010: Does an ego good....


You hear on the news and radio how finding a job in this economy is hard and you think to yourself, really how hard can it be? Then you go looking for a job yourself and then you realize it's REALLY hard!

I can't remember how many jobs I've applied for lately but I can tell you how many jobs I've gotten......zero.

I've interviewed for two and gotten my hopes up, only to have them dashed when I didn't get the job.

It's really sad because now when I apply for a job it's with the thought "I'll probably never get this job" in my head. I used to think I was a smart woman with a lot to offer an employer but when Toys-R-Us won't even hire you it makes you start to think that maybe you aren't that great after all......*sigh*
