December Already!

Where did the time go? Not really sure, been busy chasing my tail as of late. Ever seem so busy you don't get anything done. Yep, I think that's what has been happening here. With the new business ( Uppercase Living ) I have been doing a lot of computer work setting up the facebook page and listening to seminars as to how to run a successful FB page. Not to mention all the crafty stuff I have been making to sell as cash and carry items at the vendor shows. I only have 1 more weekend of vendor shows this year. Then I can put everything I made & didn't sell up on etsy.

I have almost finished the baby blanket. The boarder is done, all that's left is to tie up all the ends. I'm very thankful this one is done... Its beautiful!!! Once its done, it will be up for sale! So if your interested please let me know. I also have a few other things that I need to put up on the craft page. More to come this week.

We went and picked up our monster from school so she could be home for Thanksgiving. We have had no snow down state but this is what we found on the way up and back.

I ended up being so sick that I thought I might have to go to the hospital. I had already gone to urgent care got motrin and antibiotics. But my temp shot up and had we not been able to deal with it here I would have had to go to the ER.

The monsters and Grim cooked the entire meal... as we still had company... I stayed in my bed the entire time. No visits for me.. :( Food turned out great... They did a fantastic job. (The pies deserve a post all by themselves) Friday night I got time to visit with my kid.... Saturday morning we were up and on the road taking her back. The weather was pretty much the same... Smooth saleing up until we got across the bridge and then it snowed like crazy.... Cars off into the ditches, good thing we have a 4x4 truck now.

Grim's pickup died... The gas tank fell off as he was going in to work one night... Bad, tow truck, police, fire rescue.... everyone was ok.... except for the truck. Grim decided that it was time for it to go. It was 14 years old and it was starting to nickle and dime us. So off it went! Remember I told you all about the little car that we absolutely hated. The one that I've been trying to sell for months now.... Well, we went to every dealer in the area. Grim found a truck he absolutely loved. Its a Green Ford F-150 4x4. So we talked to the dealer and they not only gave us a great deal on the truck they took the car and payed it off. YEAH!!!!! So we both have good dependable vehicles now.

That's about it for now! Off I go... LOL!
