Blk fri wkend

Well I made it through another blk fri wkend just barely. Had to be in at 11pm thanksgiving evening to open at midnight it was crazy!@*€£¥ people running through the mall and through the store and we had our sale all day fri and sat so there was no need to rush. The store was trashed people just throwing stuff on the floor, tables all willy nilly. We are still trying to get it all organized again. And what is up with people and wearing there pajamas out to shop? (footed pj and house slippers) really...
Anyway I got off around 5 am and had to be back at 11am but ended up with a migraine, pucking and diarrhea so I didn't make it back in until later in the afternoon for about 2 hours and my boss was angry with me because I was sick. I only spent about an hour on the floor the other hour I was praying to the porcelain god. My peeps were looking at me saying why are you here? I just replied it's what the boss wants...

So I just wanted to give everyone a heads up my posting will be minimal due to. The holidays and work being crazy. I hope everyone had a safe and happy thanksgiving.

Christmas in the cabin

Christmas in the cabin

Make sure to come and see us if you are in Kokomo this weekend. It's Christmas in the cabin and it always looks so good dressed for the holiday and elizabeth's house is amazing if you haven't seen it. All her wonderful trees look beautiful.

I've been prepping for blk Friday at work so I live at the mall right now and then trying to get the house in order we are hosting thanksgiving. Omg it's a little crazy around here.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy thanksgiving and don't forget to say a prayer for all the service men and women who are keeping us safe and give us the freedoms that we are so thankful for having. May they be blessed.

Sad night read at own risk

It's been a sad weekend. My neighbor came over sat night he was in tears and told me their beloved husky neiko had passed away. He was only two years old. He was running around in the house being a puppy and feel on the coffee table yelping and then just quit and was gone. it was really weird I think he may have had a clot.
Neiko was a rescue husky they got him and he was so scared his previous owner used to beat him with a bat but he was never aggressive with any of us.
He and my Paxton were buddies they just loved playing together and running around the yard. He will sadly be missed.

Vaca #2

So things have been a little willy nilly at the homestead. Both of us on vaca we did some cleaning and yard work, went car shopping, spent so much need time together just vegging, tried to make plans to go somewhere but flights last minute were out of control. Thought about going to Chicago(taking the train) which is what I wanted to do but the other half was a no go to cold and rainy this wkend. Wanted to go to Memphis but to far to drive for 2 days. Sooooo we decided to stay home and do a major project...paint our counter tops and put in a new sink!!! The counters take a week to dry before we can even put the toaster and coffee pot back on them!!! And the sprinkles for the counter boy are they everywhere. I will have before and after photos to post tmrw. The sink nightmare can I say the other half major anger issues so frustrated and was about to quit when they finely listened to what I was saying and the garbage disposal came right off. Then we were on the home stretch.

I will also post the new walls from when I painted on my last vaca it's not quit done I need to dry brush brown ov it to tone down the color but I will get those pics up to. Also we dressed the little guys up for Halloween and boy they were super cute so I will put those pics on to for you to see. I've been I busy girl and it's only gunna get worse next week I have my holiday meeting for work and the race is on. I found out this year we are going to be a moonlight madness store!!! Completely different post later about that.

Hope everyone's having a great month the people on the the east coast ( mrs. Eileen glad you are back on grid and hope everyone's safe) I've said a little prayer for all of you so scary the weather.
Signing off for now =o}
