Scott will be home from Belgium tonight and I will be driving to Charlotte to pick him up. I can hardly wait to see him. It's been a hectic week and I've missed my best friend - my husband! We may stay overnight in Charlotte or we may try driving on home; it will all depend on how tired we both are. I'm looking forward to hearing about his trip.

We are doing trick or treating at the store today so that'll be something different. Tomorrow night I'll be working overnight trying to get the freight to the floor. Tim our District Manager will be coming to help us and I am hoping we get the stock room about empty. With any kind of good luck we will sell thru on Halloween stuff today so we will have space for all the Christmas that has come in. I got the stock room more organized again so that will help - I hope.

Scott left for Belgium yesterday and will be back on Saturday evening. I miss him so badly and a cold front moved in hard last night so that this morning I REALLY missed his warmth. It is so very nice to have someone to hold in the early morning while the furnace catches up on heating the house. More blankets on the bed tonight I believe.

I need to wet my hair as I awoke with BIG head this morning but don't want to have wethair on the way to work this morning so people will just have to deal with my natural waves. I've thrown a headband on to tone it down a bit but it hasen't helped too much.

Got to feed the dog and get to work.

Table... what table!

OK! So this is supposed to be our dining room table but I NEED the crafting space. I really need to get the train stuff packed up and those tables taken down so that I can use that space for crafting/sewing storage and move my actual crafting back into my sewing room. Perhaps then we could use the table to eat on again and I could get more projects finished. Thats the plan for my next couple days off.

While I worked!

While I worked yesterday Scott took the tractor up to our property and mowed some and actually ran over a cotton rat or two doing it. Once we get up there and can mow more on a regular basis perhaps we wont see too many of these. I'm sure they would attract some BIG snakes.

Friday is here!

Well I survived the training trip to NC and learned alot. Now we just have a TON of stuff to do to make our store a "Model Store" completely by Feb. 2nd!No stree there! HA HA! Oh well we will start knocking it out section by section - starting this Sunday night.

I have to go in at 6 this morning to help unload the truck and then back in to close tonight; a nap is souding GREAT right now.

Next week Scott will be going out of town for 3 days on business so I will have to stay busy so I won't miss him as much. I've got LOTS of projects still waiting to be done so I shouldn't get bored. Got to get somethings done as Christmas is just around the corner now. YIKES!

If I can get thru today I'll be off til SUNDAY! YEAH! I can hardly wait to be away from there. Things are quite stressful with the Christmas season upon us once more. I need to get some sewing projects done and some other crafts as well. I definitely want want to make up some scrapbooks for my siblings for Christmas. I started on them last year but lost my focus. Hopefully I will do better this year. I've signed up for a couple fun exchanges on IFQ as well. A Christmas Cracker and a Kit N' Kaboodle sewing kit. I have ideas in mind but need to get busy! Scott's ship reunion is this weekend so we will be in Charleston Friday to Sunday and we are looking forward to the time away. I need to get this house cleaned up this morning as well as the mountain of laundry out of the way. There is always way more to do than there are hours in the day.

Fall has arrived with a nice crisp morning this morning. I LOVE Fall - it's colors and scents and sounds of migrating birds. The opportunity to make homemade soups and breads is always welcome as well.
