Well, Thanksgiving in the states will be on November 22nd this year. Have you bought everything you need for your Holiday meal yet? You better get moving and start buying your supplies while they still have it in stock..You know how everybody buys everything at the last minute and you never find anything you need.Alot of stores have been putting most of Thanksgiving stuff on clearance for the past few weeks already like table cloths,napkins,stonewear and assorted other items related to Thanksgiving..So you better get moving....Have a Happy Thanksgiving..Eat lots of turkey!
Who the hell is ready for Christmas anyway? I know i will never be ready for Christmas..We just don`t have the money at all this year,my husband started a new job cause the old job had no work for weeks at a time..No work-no money to pay the bills or buy food for the kids..We really haven`t seen a pay check yet because he is still in training for his new job.At this moment there won`t be much of a Christmas around here for anybody except that we are together at the moment....We have had lot`s of bad since the begining of the year.
Hope everybody has a wonderfull Thanksgiving Holiday! Remember to be nice to everybody this time of year even if you dislike them,that`s including family members nobody gets along with..We all have those family members..So, everybody please be on your best behavior, that includes Christmas too...
I am ready to ship the kids off back to school already..They are diving me nuts...When kids are on vacation-they forget everything that they ever learned...Wish school was yearound,that may actually help kids and their parents out in the long run...Babysitters are an expense alot of parents can`t afford..And if you have a child with special needs,nobdy wants to watch that child cause they don`t want to deal with them...Who can blame them?They are a handfull to deal with...I have my own problem child to deal with..He keeps me on my toes at all times..Maybe thats why i have lost alot of weight since January..I have lost like 30 pounds since the begining of 2007...Stress could be a factor to me losing my weight too..We have had alot of bad luck for the past few years...I am hoping we get some good luck in the year 2008...

Drivers,drivers,drivers...Can they get any worse? Near where i live, the other day some idiot passed another car and ended running into an ambulance head on..A few days ago at a school bus stop, a car ran into 5 kids while they were trying to board their school bus..Luckily nobody died but they could have..All the kids that were hit are in elementary school at my kids school.Those kids may never ride a school again, i don`t blame them or their parents..The guy that hit the kids is a corrections officer at a local prison..He probably will lose his job if he hasn`t already...
