Christmas came early!!!

Tonight I was forced to go shopping against my will. Boy oh boy was I glad I was forced. Hold onto your knickers people, I just got the steal of the year! (Which is saying a lot because I am always finding awesome things at thrift stores at 1/10th the original price)

I got this puppy, BRAND NEW, never opened, for...........wait for it....... ONE DOLLAR!

This, friends, is a genuine chefmate cooking torch. I have been drooling over these since they were invented years ago and I first saw one used on the food network. They usually run at about $40-60.

And I practically walked out of the place with one for free. Thank you Salvation Army! It kills me that I have to wait several days before I can make some creme brulee with a perfect caramelized crispy top, or a lemon meringue pie with perfectly golden meringue. Why must I wait days before I can make these works of art?

1. I have SO much Christmas stuff left to make, I know I won't finish it all,

2. I started my new job today!

Yes people, I finally got another job. It's in a doctors office doing billing like I did years ago at Bryner Clinic. The great thing is I know how to do almost everything because of my old job. The tough thing is I started today, two days before Christmas Eve, and work tomorrow for a full day. So guess what I'll be doing Christmas eve? Making a bajillion presents until the evening, then finally getting a break and going to Steven's family Christmas Eve party. after that, I'm just going to take it easy, maybe breathe a little, and just RELAX! This year has been so stressful, I'm not sure why.

Anyway, just thought I'd share my amazing find, announce my new job, and wish you all a Merry Christmas, because I know I won't be getting on here until days afterwards with how busy I'll be.

So............ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!! (if I don't post by then) I hope you all have a great holiday with family and friends, I know I will!
