It's the Eve of the New Year!!
I wish peace, health and happiness to all!!

The weather has been very strange..today it is in the 40s, most of the snow has melted..which is fine with me:)
This week-end is supposed to send us into a deep freeze..I am not looking forward to that..

My grandson JJ aka..Patrick is now an employee of mine..He filled out all of his paperwork at the office yesterday. He won't have his own building at this time. He will be helping me when I have to cover a job.
He has 3 hours in already and will get a couple more tomorrow..
It will give him a few bucks and good training..

Last night I went to my friends house for a Holiday get together..I'm always the odd man out with the other being couples...but it really didn't matter last night..Just a good group of people having great conversation and LOTS of great food..They definitely know how to keep people from being hungry..lol...
I had a really busy day yesterday so I wasn't really even in the mood to go..I ended up being the first one there..lol...and although I thought I would only stay an hour or so,,I stayed until 11:30..Which is really late for me...lol..

Tonight I'm going by my girlfriends house for some cards and eats and then maybe hit the corner bar for one...
I don't think I will even stay out until Midnight...I have to be at one of my accounts at 4:00AM..
The bar is only closing down for 1Hour...It's a two hour job on a good day..there is no way my cleaner will be able to get it done in an hour...so, I will be there to help him..

It's been a good year for me...I'm going into the New Year with high hopes that things will continue to go in a positive directions.
I wish the same for you!!

Mason, Cameron and Destiny...Eating their dinner while watching a movie in my bedroom.
Mason and Cameron with their new nerf guns..
Me with the kids..
Merry Christmas from my house to yours!!!!
I feel bad that I haven't had the time to blog..Although I have taken the time to read others...

I had the three little ones over last Saturday to celebrate Christmas...
We had a great time..Although I think the picture show that I am a little worn out..lol..

Tonight I will go by Masons other grandmas house. We split the cost of Masons gift as it was a bit pricey..We got him the DS and of course it had to be the latest version. Almost $200.00 for a hand held game system..His parents are going to get him some extra games for it..

After that, I will go to my daughters house to celebrate with her and the kids..Can't wait for that...She has been teasing me with whatever my present is...lol...She sent me a picture of my wrapped gifted via the web..I think it's a set of storage containers..lol..
She knows how I feel about those..
She wasn't supposed to get me anything after paying for the trip to Vegas...but she did anyway...shame on her:)

My granddaughter has been accepted at all of the university's that she has applied too.
She has decided on University Nevada Las Vegas...and because my daughter had planned on moving to a warmer climate anyway, they will ALL be moving to Vegas in June or July...
That is going to be hard...not having them nearby...but I understand and I have told her many times that if she is going to make the move, do it while I am still healthy..lol
I don't want her to feel like she can't make the move she wants to because of me..
I'll be fine until I make the decision to move also..which is the plan. I won't do it for another couple of years..but I will be making that move also...
I still need time with the little ones..I have memories to make with them...it won't be as hard to leave them when they are a little older:)

My step-daughters surprised me with some very nice gifts for Christmas..totally unexpected...
The best gift of all is the card that one of them wrote to me...
Sheri,
Happy Holidays and we all wish you a Happy New Year:) We are very thankful God has blessed us with you in our lives! You're truly an amazing person to know. We love you.....

How nice was that?? I was trying to read it to my girlfriend and had to let her read the card herself because I started to cry...I told Cameron that it was the best gift I received..

THAT is what the season is all about...

My daughter just stopped by to pick up all of the things that need to be at her house tonight...
presents, deviled eggs, cookies, and shrimp...

It's going to be a blast..
I am already tired...I thought I would have enough time to get a quick nap in, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen..lol..

We have been soooo busy at work...getting new buildings, training new people...
New buildings are a good thing..It's just such a chore getting everything and everyone into place...

I just received a text from one of my workers asking if she has to do both of her buildings today...That would be a yes...I don't know why she would think otherwise..
and why would you wait until now to ask? She could have been almost done by now..she made the comment that she is sick of having to scramble around on Christmas Eve...
There are LOTS of people that have to work today...and she has been out of work three days this week...that has put us out...but I guess she doesn't care about that..Guess it might be time to cut her down to one building if doing two is a problem..

Other than that, everything is going well..my other workers are all checking in as scheduled..Because the banks closed at noon, they are able to start early...

Well, that's all for now.

Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!!
Sheri
