Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of my blog readers. Eric and I spent an uneventful day at home with the cats and our guest, Sadie the dog. We opened up a few presents that my mom sent us and right now I am waiting for our Christmas supper to get done. Eric and I will be getting an Elliptical machine as our Christmas presents to each other. We've both put a little weight on since we've moved up here:)
Well, I need to go check on the ham, so I'll blog for you all later~

Still Burrrr

Well, we reached our coldest temperatures yet this winter. It is currently -20. I'm hoping it warms up a little before Sadie comes to visit. Sadie, for those of you that don't remember is the dog of one of Eric's coworkers. Sadie will be joining our crew on Friday evening and will be here for 2 weeks. It's always a tense few days in the beginning, but by the end of the time everyone tolerates each other. It will be cold taking her for walks if the temp doesn't warm up! Of course, I don't think it can get any worse then last year when we had -30 temps the whole time she was here. That was tough! This is the reason that we don't have and probably will never have an inside dog. Cats are just so much easier to take care of. They practically take care of themselves. If only we could get them to clean the litter box! Well, I'm going to try to get something done today now that it is light enough out. Later ~

Well, if you call -10 warm, then we are having a heat blast! At last check, it was -12. Itt's suppose to warm up tomorrow to -5. Before you know it, we will be running around in our swimming suits. Actually, we need this cold weather. We don't have any decent ice on the river and it's too much of a hazard for people, but they are still trying to get their machines on the river. Well, I have a big kitty that has decided to climb into my lap and take a nap & I'm typing with one hand. I'm off of work now, so I'll try to write more later~

Flying By

Where has the month of December gone? It seems like just the other day Eric and I got married. Today is our 3 month anniversary. I've been busy with work the past couple of weeks. I have to get my year end report done for the Department of Education. I also had an opportunity to go to Portland, OR for work this past week. We had the Regional meeting for the TRiO programs. TRiO is the main program that my program falls under. I had the chance to meet some of the other Alaska TRiO program people and some from Washington, Oregon and Idaho. The conference was at the Marriott on the Waterfront. The view from my window was pretty cool. I forgot to take my camera, otherwise I would have posted some pictures.

Speaking of work, I am actually on break starting on Tuesday, and I don't have to start up again until January 2. I am so looking forward to it! I love my job, but sometimes you just need a break! I'll talk to you all later~
