Keeping My Fingers Crossed!

I have a new young lady sitting at the front desk this morning. I agreed to bring her in this week for a trial run. I'm hoping it works out, but if not, nothing lost. So far, she showed up twenty minutes early for work; was dressed appropriately; appeared to absorb all of the information I gave to her quickly; and has properly directed calls this morning. WOW! :) I'm not ready to hold by breath just yet.

Last night was so silly and fun. First, I went to Michael's and bought more ribbon. I made ten bows, which are pitiful compared to my mother's, but they will suffice. We had leftover ribs for dinner and I just had to make potato cakes with the leftover mashed potatoes. YUM! Sydney was our DJ last night, as always. She loves the Christmas music and I've grown fond of it myself. This year has been unlike any other. So on to the funny story...

We were sitting at the dinner table, listening to "Baby, it's cold outside." If you don't know the song, you are nuts! I love this song and it is one of my favorites. If you are from another planet, the duet is between a man and a woman. The woman is trying to leave ("I really must go...") and the man is trying to convince her to stay ("Baby, it's cold outside..."). So, last night Sydney announces to Marc and me, "She needs to go potty." Marc and I were confused and asked if she was talking about herself in third person or perhaps, the dog. "No, the lady!" We see she is pointing to the stereo. I just love things like that! She cracks me up. My silly girl.

Well, "I really must go..," and not to the potty, but back to work. I hope you guys have a great day! :)

I'm glad you are writing these little tidbits down. Sydney will enjoy them when she is older.

Potato pancakes? Now, that sounds heavenly.

I love that song! I first heard it in the movie, "elf" and it has stuck with me every since. :)

Happy Wednesday to you :)
