Help choose the music on WQMX!

It's that time of year again. I know, we all hated taking tests in school...but this one can be fun! It's the WQMX music test! It is time for us to ask YOU the listener what songs you are enjoying on the station and which ones you are a little tired of hearing.

Since you're on our website right now, click on over and start the music test now. You could even score an Amazon gift card for helping us out! Trust us when we say it DOES help us out. This is how we know what songs YOU want to hear more and less of. You DO have a voice with WQMX. That's why we are YOUR COUNTRY!

People are saying this is a little sus...

Parker McCollum is making people wonder what might be up. He has just announced he is cancelling a show in College Station,TX this August for "unforseeable circumstances". At the same time, he is also saying he has some exciting news to share soon.

Many loyal fans are wondering: Does this mean that he and his wife Hallie of almost 2 years are expecting baby #1? Do the math...that is about 8 months from now. We will have to see what Parker has to announce. Check it out on his Instagram.

Happy Birthday, Mom

Today is my mom's birthday. I know it sucks having your birthday right around the holiday season - I have three blood relatives (including mom) and my ex's father who all have their birthdays between December 20th and January 5th. The individuality of the celebration of your birth gets lost because of the rest of the calendar at the time.

I have already taken my mom to dinner this week at the establishment of her choosing - and will likely do it again this weekend. I know I don't say it enough, but I do love you Mom <3!!!

Santa came late for Buttercup

I told Buttercup that he was a good boy, it's that Santa was a forgetful man and left his gifts at the North Pole and had to run back home to get them. Hahaha ;)

I (I mean Santa) got Buttercup three toys that should help his curiosity and keep him from getting bored so easily. The first that is pictured is where I can put treats in the cheese and he has to use his feet to get them out of the different holes. OR I can put the treats under the ping pong balls and he has to realize he needs to move the balls to get the treats.

So far it's a big hit! He is loving the ping pong balls! He loves how fast he is able to knock them around the house...especially when they get into the kitchen and off the carpet! The only issue is how often they get lost under furniture and I am the one who has to get down on my knees and retrieve them. He refuses to help me! Some lame excuse about "Oh, I have no thumbs".

I am waiting to break out the other toys for a future time. I'll update as we go!

Welcome to 2024!

Most of New Year's Eve was quiet for me. The big event for the evening was going to dinner with friends I worked with at Blossom. We went to Ken Stewart's Tre Belle in Bath. It was AMAZING! 

There were seven of us, so we shared a couple appetizers - including their nachos and rosemary fries. Both were delicious. Next was my salad, then the entrees. I had their Tuscan Macaroni & Cheese. WOW! It was nice and creamy and filling, yet not too heavy. My mom had the Chicken Parmesan and the chicken was very good as well.

Then was dessert. OH MY GOD! Their twisted donuts with Whipped Cream. It was some of the best food I've had in a long time.

After dinner, I went home and crashed with Buttercup. I did not watch the ball drop as we were too busy watching something else on Hulu...haha. Happy New Year!

A wonderful "Christmas" evening

After work on Wednesday, I went over to my mom's for my "big" family get-together for Christmas. In attendance were my brother who lives locally, my sister and two older nieces who also live locally. Also there was my brother and sister-in-law from California with my younger niece and nephew.

We had a delicious dinner prepared by my mom and then desserts that included Angel Food cake OR Chocolate Chip cookies baked by my sister's younger daughter. She makes some of THE BEST cookies! Somehow we had a few left, so I brought them into work this morning where they are sure to be finished by probably 1:00 this afternoon. haha.

By the way, I need to say an early Happy Birthday to said niece, Riley...she turns 21 on New Year's Eve!!! Happy Birthday, Riley!!!!

This is possibly the weirdest week of the year

We are into that week between Christmas and New Year's. This is NOT what the roads look like with people going to work this week. Coming into work this morning, I could count the number of cars on the road!

This is just a strange time of year. Kids are out of school. Some people have to work. Some don't (LUCKY!!!) HAHA.

If you have gifts to exchange...good luck in THAT traffic.
