Since I was last here so many things have been happenening. My dh is training for a usps job so three days this week I had to drive him 1 1/2 hrs away to training. I drove him because he was working nights all week then off work at six, drive for 1 1/2 hrs. and have classes for another 8 hours then back in the car for the long drive home....he was only getting 3 hrs of sleep so I was the driver for safety reasons. I spent 6 hrs in the van the first day...a very long day. But the next two days I go much smarter and spent my days at the nearest mall...shopping my brains out. WOW, are there a lot of sales out there. We also had a snow storm last Sunday...really high winds...not so much fun. I think we got about 8 inches of snow...I try to post a pic that was out our back door...it did look beautiful. I wanted to show you my new tree too...I love trees...I also purchased two trees that are in urns that you place at the front door...60% off...quite a deal. I am going to put them out after I take the Christmas stuff down...I will post pics then. I also took my middle daughter to get her driving permit...yes she passed and is so happy!!! And finally, out eldest finished her first semester of her sophmore year with a 4.0!!! I am so proud of her!!!! I will post again before Christmas!
