December 8, 2008

I guess you figured out that my computer died for a while. For anyone with Vista--do not leave an external hard drive plugged in. I had mine plugged into the USB port and it completely messed up my system. After four days of trouble shooting myself, I figured it out.

My in-laws came to visit for a few days last week. We went shopping and picked out our live Christmas tree. We ate out and went to my nephew's 18th birthday party. Me, my sister, brother-in-law, and husband all made a bet back in 1992 about Alex's height. My brother-in-law in 6'4" so we guessed he would be tall. The bet was made in the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City on 1-11-92. We wrote it on a cocktail napkin... I picked 6'3" and on 12-6-08, I won! What did I win? A drink from each of the losers. LOL

Today I had lunch with my friend Sharon at a cute little Victorian tea house in Wake Forest. It was really nice.

This week I will be busy decorating the house for Christmas and our annual holiday party, which is this Friday night. So far, only 14 are coming.

Today I filed my work search form so I can collect unemployment. I actually applied for four jobs--two are freelance and two are full-time.

I got a really special email from my friend Bob Bell after he read my blog about being laid off and unwanted. It's nice to have friends who know how to make you feel better when you are down. I've also been getting uplifting quotes from my English friend, Tom.
