I received an update on the interview that I had a few weeks ago. They decided to put the job on hold until March. I figured as much because the lady that I interviewed with told me that they were moving the executives to a top floor in the building and she wouldn't have a place to put me until after the move. I sent a follow up thank you note and I hope that they think of me when the time comes to hire.

Yesterday at work we had our Thanksgiving Day lunch. There was a nice variety of food. I brought a pumpkin pie with cool whip. I had a slice for breakfast this morning. For lunch, I will be going to another company in the building they are raising money for the United Way by selling pizza for $2 slice and some baked goods. I plan on only buying a slice of pizza.

Today is my half day at work. I usually run errands after and I was planning on picking up books from the library and picking up a prescription from Kroger but with the ugly weather we are having I might just go straight home.

This weekend I am going to have the girls set up the Christmas tree. I will move furniture. I'm always moving furniture around. We will stay in doors because the weather is expected to be bad all weekend. Good thing for me because I have a lot of reading to do and so do the girls! Saturday night DD1 and I have a painting class at Pinot's Palette. We had a great time the last time we went.

I'm on vacation all next week. I will do my Christmas shopping then. I'm going to try to do most of it online and I will probably scope out deals for Walgreens and CVS for Thanksgiving Day. I'd like to go to JCP for Black Friday.

Other than that not much is going on. Finances are going well. I'm glad that I was able to refi my house in October that is the only debt I have left. I've maxed out my Roth IRA for the year and I'm starting to think about prom and graduation for DD1.

I'm not in a good place right now emotionally. I am a mess! I took off of work on Friday and should have taken off today but I am here and trying to make the most of it.

I'm working on my budget for next year and goals. This is what I do to keep my busy and to keep my mind from wandering.

I've started Christmas shopping. Little things here and there. I am not doing much. Both girls will get a stocking and DD1 will get $100 to spend how she likes and DD2 will get $100 worth of toys and clothes. I will get them each a small piece of jewelry to open Christmas eve. For DD2 it will be costume. I have a friend that works at James Avery and she gets a 20% discount.

This evening I am going to make hamburger soup, take a nice hot bubble bath and get lost in a book.
