Working hard.... or hardly working... You decide

I have to tell you all that I am so proud of my mom for raising me & teaching me to be so independent and to be able to do all of the things that I am able to do (as good as any guy!). Yesterday I unloaded 3,000lbs of wood flooring with the forklift and I have to say.... I love driving that thing! It is sooo much fun! I zip here and there in the back lot moving things to and fro while all the guys next door at the blueprint company sit outside watching and cheering me on! I think that it is funny for them to watch me dressed in my nice work clothes with sneakers on! LOL This morning I helped to unload (50) 85lbs rolls of rubber carpet pad with John. Who says I don't work out?! Well, I just wanted to acknowledge my great mom for teaching me how to work hard with the best of them! Granted I move a little slower now that I did in my 20's, but it could be worse I could be hiring labor guys and sitting on my butt directing everyone, Not for me!!

That is a small look int…

Only 21 shopping days left.....

Well it is starting to feel a little bit more like Christmas in our house! Mom and I put up a small tree in our living room over the weekend and decorated it with all the ornaments from when I was a little kid. It was fun to go through everything and have my mom remind me where each one came from, most were handmade by both of my grandmothers!!

Wayne and I then spent most of the day Sunday decorating the whole front yard!!! It looks like a candy land! :) I will try to post some photos in the next few days. I also put up lighted garland around the house. We are going to go this weekend to get a small live tree for our family room as Wayne really enjoys the live ones! :)
