    Aww that's too bad Blue - that must have been frustrating too! Doesn't sound like it was the right fit. Hopefully some of these other things will work out for you!

    hope everyone's doing OK. I finally had a couple of decent days at work, and also heard that my son got accepted at his number one school choice so we are so happy for him. Everything is flying by I can't believe he graduates high school in just a few short months! Yikes!

    Sorry to hear about the job Blue! Hopefully something else will turn up soon.

    Things are good here. I've been really enjoying the extra time to go to the gym, yoga class, music, etc. since I don't down a bottle of wine every night. Good grief, what a waste.

    Frances, that is great news for your son!! How exciting. We are just starting down that path with my oldest (he will be a junior next year) and I am already terrified!!!! : )

    AG you sound great! Yes, I agree - what a waste all that time spent on drinking was (not to mention money!).

    Thanks for the congrats about my son! We are going out dinner tonight to celebrate. I'm so proud of the young man he has become. You are in good shape if you get stuff figured out now - we didn't really do much until the very end of his junior year and into the early part of senior year. Thankfully he knew he didn't want to go too far from home so that made what few school visits we did pretty easy.

    Hi Blue! I didn't do much for valentines day but we got my daughter a pandora ring - cute and she LOVED it which is so nice. We had celebrated my son's acceptance to his top choice the night before at Sakura - had a great time. He applied to four schools and got into all four. the one he wants to go to is private and expensive so we are trying to see what scholarships he can get. Fun stuff! So far so good today - found some frozen gravy from a roast I cooked awhile ago, and decided to use that to cook a roast tonight for dinner - hope it turns out, I've always done the gravy and everything the same day...if it turns out I will know to always make extra and freeze it...then all you have to do is put the roast in it and cook it low and slow :-)

    I'll let you know how it turns out!

    The roast turned out well...All I had to do was sear the meat and put it in the pan with the sauce I already had and bake. Easy peasy! I was very pleased!

    Hope everyone's doing great..AG I miss seeing your posts here and in the nest - - Everything OK?

    Glad your roast turned out good Frances! I'm not big on jewelry....what is a Pandora ring?

    AG....where are you?

    The Lord lifted one of our burdens the other day....we finally got a new car!!! It's a 2006 Kia Sedona!!!! We had a 1996 Jeep Sport....it broke down for the last time and my hubby being a mechanic and his mechanic friends said it was too rusted out to put another dime into. Our credit was shot but there's a program through the car dealership that's works on building your credit back up. So we have a car note but at least hubby can get to work!

    Hope everybody is having a successful day!!!

    Hi guys - I'm on a work trip so haven't had much time to check in this week. I have not been very well behaved . . . so back to square one for me. Its depressing. I know I'll get back into a good routine when I get home. I should be home later tonight.

    Greetings!

    Sorry to hear things haven't gone the way you would have liked AG - hope you can get back on track soon...Glad to see you here!

    Blue - Pandora is a jewelry line - it is very popular - a lot of bracelets and charms but also some rings and I'm sure other things. I got my daughter the princess ring. It's cute - was about $50. A lot of their stuff is pretty pricey but some is not too bad.

    I'm happy for you about the car! Hopefully it will be a double blessing and allow you to get your credit back on track too!

    I'm home alone for the next few hours. Not sure what I'll do - probably some laundry and TV. Woohoo I'm livin' it up!

    My husband and I went out to dinner last night with a couple of friends. We had a nice time - good food and conversation. They are big drinkers and I think my drinking so slowly held them back a little. We were there three hours and I had a cocktail before dinner and one wine with dinner and then one wine afterwards - everyone was ready to go and I still had half a glass of wine left. In the old days I would have had more than that for sure! Felt fine and no desire for more. That makes me happy

    Hope you guys are having a good weekend!
