Friday- and I'm BROKE!
I spent entirely too much money yesterday. But I'm pretty much done with Kimmie, got Becky's biggie gift, and have a few for Andy as well. I only hope Hubby gets his paycheck next Friday- or we're eating PB&J's and beans and rice for a week!
Well, on to a special day for a special guitar-god:
Happy Birthday Phil Collen! Hope your having a great day, and a wonderful time relaxing after a killer tour this year!
OK- so I'm freezing my arse off right now. One of the bad things about winter in the "Sunshine State" is that the weather is a bit "schizophrenic". Which basically means that one day it's in the 80's, and the next it's in the 40's! I was shopping in my shorts yesterday- now I'm sitting here typing this in sweats! It's supposed to stay chilly for the next few days, and warm up on Monday. I remember when I was a kid- you put away your "summer wardrobe", and took out the winter stuff. Down here ( except in the summer) you have your tank tops sitting next to your sweaters! Makes it hard to fit all your clothes in one dresser- that's for sure!!! I guess that's why people are constantly getting sick down here- you can leave your house in the morning dressed for the weather- and come home to something completely different! I keep an umbrella and a hoodie in the car- just in case!
Well, enough about that. I'm sure those of you up north are thinking- "BFD KC- we're up to our arses in snow for the next 4 months!" But at least you all have a chance to "get used to the cold". Try to find warm clothes/jackets down here. Maybe in Orlando- but not over here in BFEast coast FLA. Becky wants a nice, black coat. Can't find one for looking! All they have are ski-jackets ( too warm for most weather down here) or leather ones. Which- I'm sorry- never seemed warm enough for me ( I've had 2 over this life- and I didn't find them as warm as a P-Jacket I had for years!) Besides, I'm not shelling out $200 for a coat she can wear maybe 4 days a year! I'm not totally crazy!( Stop that giggling- I hear you all!!)
Well, on to that which you all look forward to. This one is one we can all relate too! Thanks to Kat for this one!

Hope you all have a great weekend. I'm working Sunday, but I don't care- at least that means I get 2 days off next week. And it seems that I am officially off on Christmas day. Thank goodness for that! It's nice that we have so many young and older co-workers that really don't care if they work ( no kids/family/plans to deal with) Hell- some of them want to work, since they need the money more than the day off! All power to them- I've worked my fair share of Christmases over my 20+ years- let someone else have the "fun"!
Peace and Love,
