Let’s do The Mash….The Monster Mash! I used to sing this song a LOT before Halloween when I was little. My mom would get so tired of hearing me sing it, but hey, it was a fun little song and I knew all the words. What do you expect from an eight year old? LOL


Looking for products to enhance the safety of local law enforcement, fire fighters, etc? Look no further then 5.11 Tactical. They have one of the largest inventories of tactical pants, boots, shirts and other gear in the nation! They also carry popular brands of holsters and flashlights. They ship most orders within 24 hours. And if you email a question, they usually answer within just a couple of hours. How’s that for customer service?

This is going to come to a shock to several of my friends and family when they read this post, but guess what I did!?!!?! I actually started my Christmas shopping! I have four things crossed off my list already and they are now hidden in my closet. Usually I am out there on Christmas Eve, desparately searching for that one last present, but not this year. I vow that I will be finished by December 1 so that I can sit back and relax and actually enjoy the holiday season. Anybody else want to join me and take it easy this holiday season?

I’ve been thinking about consolidating all of our loans into one so that I only have to deal with one payment each month. I’ve been searching online to see what options there are out there to do this. I’ve seen everything from Home Equity Loans to personal, secured loans.

I think the best way for us to go would be with a homeowner loan, but I think I’m going to check into some more websites to see. I came across one website, called Magic Loans, that looks to provide several different types of loans for people to consolidate their bills. They are located in the UK though so I don’t know if I could go through them, but I do like how they answer a lot of questions on their site and they offer repayment times of anywhere from 3 to 30 years. They even have a loan calculator on their website so you can see what type of payments you would be looking at each month and also to see what exactly you could afford to borrow. If you live in the UK, why not check them out for your Home Equity Loans?

I just realized that the new season of Nip/Tuck starts tomorrow night on FX! I’m so ready for it! I’ve waited patiently all summer to see how McNamara-Troy does business in Beverly Hills compared to Miami. I’m sure they’ll have just as many adventures and I’m sure there will be several stars making appearances on the show.

How many times have you looked in the mirror and thought “Hmm, I wish those wrinkles weren’t so prominent around my eyes” or “Boy, having my kids sure did make my stomach pouchy. I wish I could get rid of it”. I’ve been thinking those thoughts here lately too. I don’t know if I’d ever be brave enough to have Plastic Surgery, but if I ever would seriously think about it I would do a ton of research first. The main thing I’ve heard to look for is a surgeon who is certified in plastic surgery and to check and see how many times he’s actually done the procedure you’re wanting done yourself. I would also get more then one opinion. Just because one doctor says you need something done doesn’t mean that you really do. And finally, if I’d decide to actually be brave and have plastic surgery, I’d want to be put in touch with some of the surgeons other patients to see how they liked the doctor and to make sure they were satisfied with their work. I guess the first thing I need to do though is actually work up the nerve to do it.

And I’m going to go insane if the phone doesn’t stop ringing. Since I started work at 8am, I think I’ve easily answered over 100 calls. Most of them are wanting construction dumpsters either removed or delivered. Any other time this would be fine, but today, for some reason, everybody and their mothers are calling in and wanting it done right now. Sorry, but we can only pick up one dumpster at a time. I’ve also had to make two trips into town (1st to take my son to school, 2nd to take his gym clothes to school) and then another trip to pick one of our trucks up from the shop. That was the best hour of my day:) It was nice and quiet with just the sun streaming through the car window. I could have easily just kept on driving instead of returning to the office. But, no, I was a good girl and came back to my desk with the annoying, nonstop ringing phone.
