Well today I hit it hard again and got the whole first coat on in the basement. Yep that includes trimming everything out and rolling everything. This took at 2 hours to do everything and about 1 gallon of paint. It is taking forever to dry so I will slap the second coat on later this evening and then we will be ready to put the trim on.
PS...there was not taping involved it was all free handed!
You can still see it is wet from the paint lines.

Trevor is always a good helper!!
You can still see where it was but they make a paint product to use to paint over that first before you apply the actual paint.

Well as it turns out Jon had to take his week long vacation this week because of the start of his new year at work. If he would of waited and took it with me when I had off he would of lost it so he had to use up 37 hours. He went to work on Monday but has the rest of the week off and next Monday and Tuesday. So can anyone guess what he has decided to do with his time off since Trevor and I are not home?? Yep, go hunting and fishing!! Tuesday he went pheasant hunting with Mydland and then went fishing at Fish Lake and brought some home for Trevor to see but there were not any big enough to eat. Then yesterday him and our old neighbor Lucas went hunting and then fishing all day. Once again did not bring anything home big enough to eat, I like to give Jon a bad time about this. So here are some pictures that I took because Trevor was so excited to see the fish and the pheasant! Even though the fish were not big enough to eat I really thanked Jon for bringing them home to show Trevor because he was so excited!

All tables included Presidential china (we even polished the silverware)
The Menu if you can read it
You would think that after hearing all of this that Saturday was over but you are wrong. Saturday night was Jon's work Christmas party at the Ram Pub so Dennis and Diane were very nice and willing to babysit Trevor, THANK YOU!! Trevor had a great time with you he especially liked the 2 hour bath!
Sunday we headed to Sioux Falls to finish our Christmas shopping and boy was that a bad idea, it was nuts!!! Jon and Trevor stayed at Scheels the whole time while I went wild and hit every store possible to finish up. Then Sunday afternoon we went to my aunt and uncle's house for their Christmas party. They do it every year and everyone brings a $10 gift and we play and game so we each end up with one present. It was a lot of fun, Trevor especially thought it was fun because he played with all the cousins and helped everyone unwrap their gift. Total there was about 42 adults and 10 kids 10 and under, it was wild one. This was only about 1/4 of our family so if you think that is a lot of people you wait until you see the Christmas photos I take on Christmas Day. I took some photos to share so I hope you enjoy them!!

I am happy tonight for more then one reason!
Reason 1: I got home and in the mail were 3 very cute Christmas cards (The Sheik Family, The Goodale Family and The Johnson's) thank you to all of you, very cute cards!!
Reason 2: When I got home from the grocery store I received a call from the court house telling me that I do NOT have to report for jury duty because they have settled outside of court.
Reason 3: Tomorrow night is Jon's Christmas party for work and we could not find a babysitter until 9pm so grandma and grandpa Healy to the rescue!! (Don't worry Diane I stocked up on decaf coffe, splenda and soy creamer. I even got you your own little container to put it in so each and every time you visit you will know right where to go.) So thank you for helping us out!!
It has turned out to be a great night!!!!
Alright so I had a great plan to write a nice long post about Christmas but that all came to a damper around 5pm last night. I got home and got the mail and there was a letter for me to appear at the court house YES AGAIN for another round of jury duty! Are you kidding me?? I was furious because it is the worst time since finals are next week and we will be busy shutting down our building for a month. I need to report next Wed so I am going to have my boss call and beg that I do not have to do. Or we can all just wish that they settle outside of court. Do you know how awful it would be to have to do jury duty over Christmas? Especially for me because we are going to be gone for 5 days because of all the places that we have to go. This just really puts a stop to all my happiness.

Well there are only 11 days left until Christmas, are you ready? I know I am not I still have some shopping to do. There are a few gifts that I just can not find, you would think after shopping at the Mall of America I would be able to find what I needed but so such luck.
I also wanted to let everyone know that I mailed out Christmas cards on Tuesday so if you have not seem yours yet you will probably get it today! I just love getting the mail everyday to see who's card I we are going to get. So far I only have 2, I sure hope we will get more!!
Have a good day!!

Well most of you do not know too much about ARAMARK the company I work so here the low down. For the most part I get most weekends off but there are a few where I have to work to help with catering or concessions or HOBO DAYZ or even graduation (which is actually this weekend). Since I help out on those weekends my weekday schedule really varies and I can pick my hours which is nice because then I can leave early since I worked the weekend or stayed late on a certain night. So lately we have been really busy and with graduation this weekend things are going to be crazy! Finals week are next week so that means only a few more days to get through. So my boss being the nice guy that he is has given all the manger's 5 days off through our Christmas break and we do not have to use our vacation or PTO day. Basically 5 FREE days!!
With the holidays that I already get and my 5 FREE days I will get almost 2 whole weeks off...YEAH! I can not wait!! I told daycare that Trevor would also be gone those days and then she informed me she was taking a small family vacation also on those days so I sure lucked out. Then to complete my whole vacation story Jon called me yesterday and said that Waltz had called him yesterday and said that he had too much vacation time saved up and so he needs to use a week before the 1st of the year or he will loose it. So can you guess what week he will take off??? The same story goes for him as well with all the holidays he will also get almost 2 weeks off.....can you tell I am excited?
