Games….

Mike wanted Electronic Monopoly for Christmas so that’s what I got him along with a couple pairs of work pants and a sweatshirt. On Christmas day it was beautiful, something very unheard of here in Minnesota. Most years it’s cold, windy, lots of snow but this year we have had maybe a total of 2” of snow and it hasn’t stayed around. Our average temp up here has been in the 20-30’s and we’ve even had some 40’s. It’s been awesome except for the resorts, snowmobilers and kids that really want to play in the snow. To give you an idea, here is what Mike wore Christmas day.

And he’s been riding his dirt bike everywhere. Mike’s been working off and on and yesterday worked in Wisc for the day. Tomorrow North Dakota. All with an insulation company. He loves the travel but the days are very long, usually 8 hours of travel with a 10 hour work day plus then he has to drive home too. It’s working and thank goodness he’s young, it would kill me off though I do get up with him, go and exercise (yes yesterday I was at the gym at 4:30 in the morning) and I wait up for him at night plus of course daycare during the day.

Okay, the game….Mike is such a snot, I have never, ever won a game of monopoly, even when I’m the banker and could cheat I have never won, however the turd wins just about every time and this time was no different but he loved it and I so love playing with him.

Today I am going through a few of our toys the kids no longer play with. I put then on freecycle and have a woman coming by tomorrow morning to pick up whatever I come up with. Really I already have a tote of them but will get a few more out of here. Daycare is shrinking and it’s time to purge a bit. Rachel and Abby are here and I’m not sure what we’ll do for sure. I am betting a visit to great grandma, some baking and a movie then tonight I need to go and clean the Odd Fellow’s Hall and just maybe go out to dinner with a dear friend. Gotta call her first and see if tonight is the night she’s available.

That’s my day and it’s time to fix some breakfast and get moving. So take care my friends and have an awesome blessed day!!

I never win at Monopoly either. I think it is a guy thing. :)

LOL!! Same reason I never shoot pool with The Architect or play chess with DirtBike. They kick my tail every time!

I never win at Monopoly either - and DH is too serious a player for me, so we never play it together anymore!
Just found your blog- you're doing great!
We had a mild Christmas here too - but it's cold & snowy outside now. Brrrr.

You, my friend, have a very crazy schedule. But it sounds like fun. :) I haven't played Monopoly in ages. Maybe I'll get Boyfriend to play with me this weekend. Good luck this week!!
