    This the the place to comment about anything under the sun! I don't view this as a pointless thread because while we probably won't reply to all, as we read through the posts, we may learn something new, so post away! :D

    Oh no! I'm starting to get sick! :( My BF, who's only been sick a couple of times in the past several yrs was coughing on Christmas day, Friday, & Sat when I saw him. I was trying my best not to catch it, but I guess that was too good to be true!

    I have some cough & cold medicine that I'll take & also some Airborne lying around. I took the Airborne. I'm glad I don't return to work tomorrow!

    My hubby has to have my car tomorrow and although I had no plans, I am going crazy trying to think of anything I will possibly need. I have already ran to my class room to get my science stuff *in case* I decide to do lesson plans. :) WHY IS THAT????
    I hate that feeling!

    My feet hurt!

    Why do I spend more money than I get in credits when I'm out making returns? Will I be able to stop shopping? Soon?

    I'm enjoying playing facebook games with AtoZ members.

    I went shopping today with my gift cards that I got for Christmas. I ended up buying stuff for other people and not ME! How did that happen? I got some good deals though so I didn't spend that much. I wish I bought more stuff for me though!

    Why do I get my good ideas on the weekends, when no one is open to call and ask questions of? I want to volunteer at the local hospital, reading out loud to the sick kids. I figure I have a ton of time, and I love reading to kids. I could read for hours at a time for them. So I finally thought to research tonight, and the website says I have to take a class that is only offered once a once, and not in January. What the? So I tried to call, and they are not open-big surprise on a Sunday night. Now I'm feeling anxious and panicky, because I thought this would be a great way to still work with kids and spend my time. Now I have to wait a full 15 hours to call them back.

    Because this is so important in the grand scheme of things. Sheesh.

    I just want to get the phone I want with a data only plan. Why must that be so hard?

    Why do I have to wait one more week to find out whether or not I got the job I interviewed for?

    Jem, that is a wonderful idea to read to the children at the hospital. At a company I worked for some time ago, there was an individual who volunteered at a cancer ward to read stories to the children. He went in around midnight when many of the children could not sleep.

    A lady at school did. I was too scared to try it also. It looked ok though. Try it! And how long exactly did that take you?

    Good to know! I'm going to call again tomorrow morning. I can't imagine they would turn away someone who wants to help out, just because they don't have an official class in January.

    I just made the best mudslides. My mom decided she wanted to celebrate New Year's while we were all home, so I broke out the drinks for a toast. I put chocolate syrup on the rim and down the inside of the chilled glasses, poured in the ice cream/alchohol mix and ta-da! Beautiful and tasty.

    Maybe I should be a bartender....

    He's type I, so him getting into the candy would be REALLY bad...like hospitalization type bad. It's best to just eliminate the temptation.

    my dog is so funny - he was asleep and lying on his back pushing his feet in the air like he was kicking something- wonder what he is dreaming about?
