Up too early

Joy #1's alarm went off at 5 somthing this am. It is Saturday. She spent the night at a friends. Now I am up.

Randomly here is what is going on in my life or mind.

  • It's too dark here to take a picture of the hat I'm working on. I'm using black patons yarn and I'm knitting up the Jacques Cousteau .
  • The coffee is ready but I don't want to go to the kitchen to get it.
  • Our tree isn't up yet. I'd like to get it this weekend. I used to never put up a tree before my birthday (December 10) but now I do.
  • I am training this weekend and a couple of days next week to work at the local ski resort. The one I talked about last year. This year I am working there and getting the awesome ski discount! Not for me but for Joy #2.
  • I get to be in a parade this evening. As business woman of the year, I was asked to be in the holiday parade. It is themed Hollywood Celebrities. I am just gonna glam it up and the president of the women's division of the chamber is going to be my driver and dress up like a chauffeur.
  • I've not done any Christmas shopping yet. I'm actually thinking about hitting this pawn shop in town to see if they have an electronics my kids are wanting. I've shopped thrift but not pawn. It should be interesting.
  • I hope you all have a great weekend!
  • Bloglines is down until tomorrow so if you post I may not know.

Ugh...never fun to be up early. Don't feel bad, our decorations aren't up either and I still have shopping to do. Have fun at the parade!

Oh...the software program I use is called GIMP. You can download it for free on their website. It's supposed to be comparable to photoshop.

Have a great parade and be sure that someone takes your picture. We want to see you all glammed up on the parade route! Enjoy!!!!!

Have fun at the parade! I'm picturing you sitting on the back of a convertible giving a nice fancy wave :-) I hope someone will take a picture for us!

I don't know if Joy #2 recognizes at this point in his life what a great mom you are to work extra for a ski discount for him, but one day he will. You're awesome!
