Merry Christmas!

We are off to Tim's dads house tonight. Tomorrow morning we go to my mom and dad's and then to Tim's mom's/aunts house. We already exchanged our gifts with each other and Mod since we will be gone all day tomorrow. We also gave the dogs and cats their gifts, the cats are already playing with their new mice and have them spread all over the house. We got the dogs these huge loofah dogs, they are almost as big as them. Boston looks hilarious carrying his, he trips over it. I cannot wait until the day we can stay home on Christmas and everyone comes to our house. This will happen once we have kids, that way people can come to us. We usually end of driving all day and use a tank of gas. It is so exhausting too and we usually get home late and everything gets piled in the living room and then come Wednesday morning we are back off to work. Sometimes I wonder why we have a day off because I am more tired afterwards than if I would have just worked! We are having 40 people over on Saturday for my family Christmas party, so that doesn't leave us much time to get everything situated and in it's place from Christmas. I am a neat freak so I will be cleaning like a mad woman. We are dressing the dogs up of course - Boston is a reindeer and Bristol is Mrs. Claus. I will post pics after Christmas. I cannot wait for everyone to see them! Sue was with me when I bought them and told me she has to see them.

Tim chickened out

Tim did not dress up for my Christmas party, he wore his normal tie and button down. He kept telling everyone how I didn't tell him there was a disco theme otherwise he would have dressed up. We had fun, although Tim said it wasn't as eventful as last year. Of course he wore his tie around his head again this year and danced with my boss. I always tell him not to get me fired. :P Everyone loves him because he is fun. There was a picture taken of him and one of the other ladies (and she tied a tie around her head) dancing in sync. It was hilarious! We did a gift exchange after the party with our friends who moved here from Wales (I got her a job at my company)and we listened to everyone (try to) sing karoaki. Tim fell asleep around 2am and I had to wake him up to take him back to our room. A few of us stay up late and talk by the fireplace in the lobby, which is where we were when Tim fell asleep. (AND HE SAYS I GO TO BED EARLY)
It is hard to believe Christmas is 1 week away! I am ready - gifts wrapped and all. Our lights keep going out on our tree - when I shake it a little they light back up so who knows what happened. The animals like to play under it so they probably knocked a cord lose. It drives me crazy knowing some of the lights are out. Tim thinks I am nuts (what is new).

Christmas party

Tomorrow night is my work Christmas party. I am really looking forward to it. It is at Atwood Lodge and our president pays for 1/2 our room fee so everyone always stays over night. It is a very formal party, although this year the theme is "disco". Tim thinks he is dressing like a pimp but it is not looking good at this point being it is 9pm Friday night and he still doesn't have anything! DARN :P Mod is spending the night with the Ott's and the dogs are going to Mark & Steph's house for the night. The lodge has the best breakfast ever which is also included in the room price. I love going in the pool and hot tub on Sunday morning. I really could use the hot tub because my back and neck have really been bothering me (ever since my accident I have never been the same). We are supposed to get a pretty bad snow storm tomorrow and Sunday so we plan on taking Tim's truck. In case you are not familiar with Atwood it is out in the middle of no where. Stay tuned to see if Tim really dressed for the disco party or not...

The weekend is never long enough! :(

This weekend flew by. Yesterday Tim went Christmas shopping with the guys and I went out to lunch and shopping with his mom. They were supposed to go to Columbus but since Mark works for the county and it was freezing rain they ended up going to Canton instead. Suzie and I actually saw them at Best Buy (what are the odds)! Canton was crazy, idiots everywhere. You know it's bad when you almost get ran into in the parking lot! Suzie and I went to lunch at Fridays, then we shopped. That is always fun. When I was leaving Canton I called my mom & dad and they just so happened to be going to dinner so I met them at The Outback for dinner. I ran into Dan & Jamie there and we ended up getting a seat in the "first come first serve" area because the people behind them were leaving about 5 minutes after we got there and they told us it was a 60-65 minute wait. We got lucky!
Today I did not leave the house, I did laundry and cooked dinner. I have been surfing the internet - there is a site I just love. It allows you to sell & trade your old or unwanted stamping/scrapbooking supplies. I posted a few things today and also ordered some things from SU for a lady I met on there awhile back. If you are a scrapper you gotta check it out!

hunting season is over!

I am glad this week is over. Tim took Monday and Tuesday off work to go hunting and has hunted after work everyday except for Wednesday. He got a 4 point buck on Monday. Mod went with him after school and he liked it. Jake got a deer yesterday so he got to see that. Rosis spent the night last night and Tim just took him home.
Last Friday night Kris and Curt were here from out of town (our good friends) so we went to Coshocton and ate at The Old Warehouse and then went back to Kris's parents and they played beer pong. Tim got drunk and I had to drive home at 2am! Tim's work Christmas party was last Saturday and he got drunk and so did Dick so I had to drive everyone home! (Tim drank more these 2 nights then he did all year!) LOL The party was a lot of fun -they had a DJ so we danced.
I have spagehetti cooking and it is almost done. This is my 2nd time making my mom's homemade spaghetti sauce - and it is tasty! Much better this time than my 1st time. Mod loves spaghetti - it is his favorite American food.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are having Thanksgiving at our house, I am really looking forward to it. We are usually all over the place on Thanksgiving and really don't get to relax - but not this year! YEAH! My mom and dad and Tim's dad and Maureena are coming plus we will have Jake, Mod, & Rosis (Tim & Maureena's exchange student who is also from Indonesia). It will be a lot of fun. They know that I don't know how to cook so thankfully I am in charge of mashed potatoes and rolls. :) I have only made mashed potatoes once and Angel had to help me while everyone else laughed and took pictures of ME COOKING. What can I say I am not a cook. I wouldn't say I am a bad cook if I make something but I also ask Tim a lot of questions (he says they are stupid questions) and I have not tried many recipes. I really dislike standing in the kitchen when I get home from work.
I do have to work on Friday but don't have to be there until 12:00. Tim is off until Tuesday as he took Monday off for hunting. Mod goes back to school on Monday. I am sure the extended time off will not be long enough for any of us. :( I want to go shopping on Friday morning around 9 or so because there is 1 thing I am looking for inparticular that I know is on sale that day. Other than that I am done Christmas shopping. I just have wrapping to do which is not my favorite.

our newest addition

We got another dog! It was all Tim's idea (he is such a softy)! LOL His name is Boston and he is a miniature dachshund - looks exactly like Bristol. He is 9 weeks now and weighs 5lbs. They are so cute at this age. Bristol loves to play with him, they get so tired they don't move all night! He is not really housebroken yet but he does pretty well. Tim takes more time with him and I don't have time because I am always doing something - never sitting still. He loves Tim's recliner (that should tell you where they both spend most of their time). Mod thinks he is cute, he is not sure yet about the responsibility of taking him outside after school and so forth, but he is getting used to it. (They do not have pet dogs in Indonesia).
