Had an ok day today. My morning was pretty uneventful and I got to leave work around 2 o'clock which was nice. I had some personal time left that I had to use before the year is over.

I decided to spend the afternoon at the mall which was lots of fun of course. :) I had some money saved up from my birthday so I decided to blow it on all the good Post-Christmas Sales.

There were definitely a bunch of great deals out there (got 50 % off on a few things) and I am very happy with all the stuff I bought.

Here are all the things I bought: A sweater, a black shirt, nice pants, another shirt, a frame, some Christmas cards (stocking up for next year *g*), a bunch of lotions, shower gels, body sprays and soaps at Bath and Body Works and a really great jacket. I have been wanting a jacket like that for a while now so I was very happy to find one for such a great price.

After my little shopping spree I walked back over to where I work (the mall is right across the street from Mike's and my workplace) cause Mike was still at work finishing up a big project he has been working on.

When we get out of here we will go grocery shopping and probably call it a night after that.

It's already New Year's Eve tomorrow. Where has the year gone ? We won't be doing anything big really. I plan on making some spinach dip and having some appetizers. We will have a quiet evening and watch New Year's Eve at Times Square on TV (just too many people for me - I couldn't handle actually being there myself).

Not much new really. :) Was a quiet day at work on Friday and Satuday wasn't too bad either.

Have today off which is nice although I haven't really been doing anything. Talked to my friend Joanne online for a while and surfed the web.

We cleaned up some stuff around the house and tried to get rid of all the Christmas clutter. :)

I made a ham and cheese toast with my new sandwich maker today which was very yummy. :)

Tomorrow it's back to work already. Hopefully the week won't be so bad. Can't believe it's almost 2004.

Had a very nice Christmas today. :) Hope everybody had a great day. Everybody2
We opened the gifts with Mike's sister Kristina, her fiance Chuck, her kids Shannon and Erik and Mike's aunt Judi and his grandmother Ellie at Kristina's house next door.

I got a lot of nice gifts. A very pretty white gold necklace with a diamond heart pendant, a sandwich maker and a pizza maker, a sweater and garfield PJ's, a gift certificate to Bath and Body Works, pretty picture frames, a great tea mug and a bunch of other little stuff.

In the evening we went to the Spinning Wheel Inn to have a nice holiday dinner. It was great to be back there since that was the first time we had dinner there since our wedding in the summer of 02.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy. Merry Christmas everyone. :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS everybody ! :)

It's Christmas Eve here and work actually wasn't too bad today (after being a nightmare yesterday and not getting out until 8 o'clock).

Wrapped the last presents and we will have some yummy hors d'oeuvrs and shrimp cocktail now. :) After that we will probably watch some Christmas movies or play a board game. Also have a bottle of wine in the fridge that we can open.

Can't wait for Christmas tomorrow. :) I am probably worse than a little kid when it comes to Christmas. :)

Here are the promised pictures from our trip to New York City yesterday.
It was really busy there but I guess that was expected on a holiday weekend shortly before Christmas. Fifth Avenue was packed with people. You could barely move. :)

The tree was pretty as always. Afterwards we went to our favorite pizza place in the Village - Arturo's.

Here is a little something that I put together with my new scrapbook software. :)

Went to New York City today to see the tree in front of Rockefeller Center. I will post some more pictures tomorrow. :)

Had an ok day at work yesterday and today.
We had our Christmas luncheon at work today. We got some food catered for everybody. We had lasagna, tortellini, baked ziti, chicken, rice and some other things. It was alright. The chocolate cookies I had for dessert were very yummy though. :)

After work my friend Sharon picked me up and we went to
Rosy Tomorrow's.
Had yummy potato skins as an appetizer and a Swiss Mushroom Burger for dinner. Still have some left for my lunch tomorrow. Yum. :)

After I got home I saw that Sharon's Christmas gift had arrived in the mail. I was kind of annoyed that it didn't come a day earlier so I could give it to her today.
Went to see Nanny after Mike got home and just finished watching "
How to lose a guy in 10 days". Definitely a very cute movie. :)

I am so glad it's Friday tomorrow and I am off this weekend as well. So that means sleeping in Saturday and Sunday. Yay. :)

Had a very boring morning and a very busy afternoon at work. I hate being all stressed out and super busy in the afternoon. It makes me be cranky and grumpy. Definitely not a good thing. :)

Had pizza for dinner. We tried out a new place that just opened not too long ago. It's called "
Goodfella's Pizza".

We got mushroom and garlic pizza with some garlic bread with fresh mozzarella. Now I am all garlicky and can probably deter any vampires that might come my way. :)

Had a bubble bath just now to try and de-stress from work. Think I might go to bed early today.

After raining for two days straight and having all the snow melted .... it snowed some more today. :)

That's a picture of our backyyard I took just now. Very snowy. :)
It's been snowing all day and it's supposed to keep snowing till later at night.

It might change to rain later so who knows what it will look like in the morning. Let's hope that it won't be too bad. Mondays are a pain enough as it is. :)

Haven't been doing much today really. I talked to my friend Joanne online for most of the day. Now I am playing with my website and want to try out some new scrapbooking software I got.
I should also write two more letters. Can't believe it's already Sunday night again.

Irritated .... that's how I have been feeling all day. I am not sure what exactly caused it but it's just been one of those days.

I am hoping tomorrow will be better since I have the day off. I will be able to sleep in and spend the day with my favorite cat Ollie. :)

I will also try to get some presents wrapped and finish up my Christmas cards and mail. Still have a lot of gifts to wrap and mail. It's fun to have friends and family all over the world but it's also stressful.

Well I am off to bed and hoping for a better day tomorrow. :)
