Marvelous Mondays Link Party 80

Good evening and welcome to Marvelous Mondays Link Party 80! Can you believe we are already having the first party of 2014? Can you believe that we are already 5 days into 2014? I can now say that The Walking Dead comes back next month and our trip to NC happens next month!

What have fellow host Deb and I been up to this week?

This week is going to be a busy week for me. Year end equates to chaos in an Accounting department. I’ve already been informed that we have to work late Monday and Tuesday of this week. Wednesday school starts. I leave work early to head to my capstone course. I am going to check it out and see if I think I can handle it with two other classes. I think my other two classes will be fairly easy so I may be able to handle all three. I just want to be done with school! It’s been so nice to not have to worry about homework and exams for the past three weeks!

A few rules:

  • Please follow your hosts and co-hosts via Twitter, Blog Lovin, Facebook, or email (at the right sidebar top). Please leave a comment stating how you followed so your host can follow you back. Your host and co-host links can be found at the top of the party post.
  • Please visit at least 2 other links. I suggest leaving a comment to let them know that you stopped by.
  • Grab a button. It’s not mandatory but it helps get the word out about the party.

We will not be “policing” post link-ups, but please note that repeat offenders’ posts will not be featured on Marvelous Mondays. Thank you.

  26. It’s 14 degrees in eastern NC right now….but by next month, hopefully Mother Nature will be back to her senses and it will be a nice 50 or 60 :-) (It’s actually supposed to be back in the 60’s by the end of the week I think. Thank goodness! I can’t handle these Northern temps!)

  27. Thanks for hosting Julie! Happy New Year! Have a great week. :)

  28. You could definitely see your skills in the work you write.
    The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe.
