I'm smiling for Susan and her fondant, Laurie and her walls, and for me too..I got to have Cade and Carson for two days and it was heaven...I've missed taking care of them so much that I jump at every chance I get to get my hands on them...So I have a smile that is from ear to ear...

My smiles
1. Kades, I am so happy for you having the kids again and feeling up to it.
2. The image of Dee's little girl
3. Dee "checking up on me" to make sure I am getting enough rest with my cold
4. Two DC'rs asking me for cake advice (one making and one decorating). I love helping others - not that I am the expert.
5. Sattie....just for being Sattie
6. PDSwife getting the title of biggest poster on DC!

Many of my smiles lately have come from my pups. This morning I found them both curled up in the big dogs bed, which is already too small for her but don't tell HER that! Anyway, I posted pictures in my "My kids" album on my profile.

Bring re-excited about my job and my future here at this company

Taking some intitive that should have been done years ago.... and getting...

1) Mentioned on a Management only conference call
2) Being called "New Sheriff in town"
3) Being told by my new manager" Keep it up, dont give these guys slack and keep pounding them"
4) being reconized for my hard work by my future supervisor.


but now the question is will I get all these problems fixed in a fast and timely manner. I know I willnt get any cash behind it but it will line me up for future possibilities.

Due to the cold weather my shower froze up. I even had let it drip, but that did not seem to help. So, all day I have had the door closed to the bathroom and a portable heater running in there. Finally, a half an hour ago the cold side thawed out and ten minutes ago the hot side thawed out. Whew!! Now my electric bill is going to be higher, but better than paying the plumber to fix a broken pipe.

Snow makes me feel trapped but...it's hard not to smile when you look outside and see the beauty. We have 5 inches now and everying is covered. It's quiet and peaceful and the fire is warm, hubbs is home, dinner is easy.... life is good.
