Snow and vacation

It's snowing! Been snowing all morning which is fine cause I love the snow but my mom on the other hand hates when it snows. Mostly cause she is the only one to shovel the snow at her house. So she doesn't want to drive anywhere till it stops snowing so she can shovel her driveway. I swear she is a perfectionist when it comes to shoveling the driveway, yeah I understand that it is easier to shovel the snow when no one has made tracks in it but I'm bored and home alone cause Richard had to work black Friday like he does every year. Oh well She said if it didn't stop by noon she would come get me. so I have an hour to kill.

Only 6 more days till I go on vacation, I am really looking forward to it. It will be my first real vacation since 2002. So it is long over due. Plus I will be going to warmer weather for 17 days so it will be a nice break from winter. We leave on the night of the 3rd morning of the 4th and come back home the night of the 19th morning of the 20th. Then I have my last two classes on the 21st &22nd, then on the 23rd I have a meeting at DVR to see where we go from here. So I will be busy when we get back to town. Poor Kramer prob won't like us not being here for 17 days then when we get back I go to all day class for the next 2 days, I guess we will see how he handles it. I think he will be really happy to see us when we come home then snub us the rest of the day then beg for my attention on the days that I will be gone to class.

Anyways off to go finish folding the laundry that I did on Monday and wait for noon to roll around. Hope you all had a great Turkey day yesterday.

Where oh where is my husband, oh yeah on deliveries

I love this picture of Richard sitting on the forklift. Our friend Marya took it this summer while he was helping her in outside lawn and garden.

He has been working a lot of hours at Lowe's these past 2 weeks which means a nice paycheck but not a lot of seeing him. They are short delivery drivers and he is the ONLY backup delivery driver they have so he keeps getting dragged away from his PSA job there at Lowe's to go and deliver appliances and stuff that customers order, so when he gets home he is exhausted and doesn't want to do anything but sleep. Which he can't do cause if he does it throws off his regular sleep schedule so we have to find ways to keep him awake. That all boils down to him playing video games, till it's time for bed.

On the bright side he finally got his yearly review and did really well with it. He now makes like 13.87 an hour so that nice. I keep telling myself his paycheck is going to be really good next week.

I swear Lowe's will fall apart with out him while we are on vacation. He does so much for that store, it's unreal. But he loves working there and I love him working there i just don't like when he works so much there that I hardly see him.

Christmas gifts for my Brother

Mario's hat ^

Luigi's Hat ^

Waluigi's Hat^

Wario's Hat

I thought it would be a cool idea to make the hats that Mario, Luigi, Waluigi and Wario wear out of modeling clay that you can bake in the oven to harden and give them to my brother for Christmas. they are of course the pictures above. I figured it was a good gift for him because he loves video games and no one else would have them because they are one of a kind. I ran my idea past both Richard and my mom and they both thougt it was great idea and that Josh would really like them.

Yesterday I went to Micheal's with my mom and we got the clay that I would need for each one of the hats. I decided that since Richard was playing video games that today would be a good day to make them, so I got the wax paper and my xacto knife set and went to work. It wasn't too hard for me to make them because I had done some research on them and printed a lot of different views of the hats off of the internet. I think they turned out rather well. I have now baked Mario's and Luigi's hats, as I type this Wario's hat is in the oven and once he is done Waluigie will go in.

For those of you who don't know, Mario and Luigi are the good guys in the Super Mario games and Wario and Waluigi are the bad guys in some of the games. And since Mario is so Iconic I thought it best to do those hats then anything else, plus Josh already has the mushrooms from the game cause they are tins that hold candy. I just hope he likes the hats.

favorite time of year, and Mentally Gone on vacation

It's coming up to my favorite time of year, snow will be on the ground hopefully any day now, Turkeys will be bought and cooked and Christmas will be upon us once again. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday I think a lot of it has to do with my dad when I was younger, he would go all out decorating the house inside and out with lights. He just made it so magical for me that I fell in love with it. The smell of the Christmas tree, the lights, the gifts all of it. I love decorating for Christmas, love buying gifts for people and wrapping them in bright colorful paper. I am a Christmas Junkie! There is no hope for me and you know what I'm ok with that. Bring on Christmas!

I have also pretty much been mentally on vacation for the last week. I so badly want to to be December so I can go and have fun and relax with Richard away from his work. Poor guy has been doing deliveries at Lowe's and is coming home just tired as can be, he claims he has been mentally on vacation for over a month! I keep thinking about all the fun we will have once we get down there, and how I won't have a cat in the bathroom with me every time I go in there. I still need to find something to wear for the Christmas party for both Richard and I, get a chain for my necklace and make a list of things to pack so we don't forget anything. I have already made a list for mom to help her out while watching Kramer and the apartment and our plants. That way she won't forget something. I have also started to keep myself away from sick people more, if they are sick they are not allowed to come over and hang out, or I won't go see them. I don't want to get sick before I go on my vacation cause that would be no fun at all.
