Hi all.....

You know with having Monday Memorial Day off at work...I MUST say...that this was the LONGEST 4 DAY WORK WEEK I have ever had!!!! LOL :):):):):):):) I was put on a special project for a Project Lead I work with....and BOY...did it cause some long days!!! YESTERDAY...I worked TWELVE hours just to finish up! :):):):):) But the GOOD NEWS is...the Project Lead told me that I was the fastest and most accurate of the group...and she made sure she told my bosses that fact many times!!! YAY! :):):):):):):):):) Sooooooooo...I am tired and have been still trying to keep up with my blog hopping...if I have missed U...please know I didn't do it on purpose...I try and follow in order of people that posted most recent, but for some reason when someone sets their post to post at a "later" time than they wrote pushes U further down on my list...I am doing my best to look for those post types...but I wanted all of U to know...that if I miss one of yours...I apologize! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

I wanna share an AWARD I received from my friend AMY in CALIFORNIA!!!! Now that she is closer to me...I am hoping someday we get to meet! :):):):) Thanks for the award AMY! :):):):):):):):):):):):)
