Funny Random Thoughts!!

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how> the person died.
9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

Is it really going to snow here in Jackson, MS tomorrow? CRAZY, CRAZY! Houston is calling for 3 inches tomorrow. I love to see it when it snows here because it IS such a rare occurrence but I think the part of it that I dread is the fact that NO ONE can drive in it!! I am in great debate of traveling in it myself. I have a show Saturday in V'burg and will have to leave headed that direction early early and not real sure that I want to chance it, especially being by myself! It more than likely is going to keep many inside their warm homes anyway. I don't know really what to do about it. I guess I will wait and see what the lovely weather man has to say about it tomorrow and ponder on that. You never know.... it may be sunny and hi 80?!

TIS' the Season....

23 days til CHRISTMAS!!

That's it.... I really could have sworn that two days ago it was 37 days! WOW, does time fly! I am excited though. I love the "togetherness" that Christmas usually brings. Usually even the friends and foes can come together on this one (I will update you on how that works @ my workplace, because that can happen here, peace on earth should be pretty dang close)!!

I have found that it seems to be much more merrier times when people really stop and celebrate the real meaning of Christmas and not get caught in the commercial aspect of it. Hopefully with times being so tough right now with almost everyone, many will be forced to celebrate it in that manner. Once you do it once, you will want to continue to do it to recreate the wonderful peace within it brings for everyone.

I talked to my brother in B'ham last night, who has three children. I asked how he felt about letting the kids draw names and that be it. He was all for it and said because we are not able to get together as often as we would like, he doesn't want the kids to relate that when we do, there always seems to be presents, instead of sharing quality family time. Not only does it lift the stress financially but I much rather have quality time with family and friends than anything else, especially those I do not get to see often. I am really looking forward to that.

This is a special Christmas for me in others too. It will be my first Christmas to spend with Nathan and Chloe and the rest of his family and I should be moved into our new little farm house the week of! Really looking forward to getting in there, although I had to pick the busiest time of the year, but HEY.... if it is not hectic, it's not me pulling stuff off. Actually come to think of it that entire week is crazy. I have all of my Christmas orders to make sure are filled, I have an event at the Guild, I have Jace's Christmas party at school to be in charge of, a banquet to go to in Alabama that weekend, a breakfast for our Board and our luncheon, plus move. WOW! This ought to be interesting. Yuck! Now what I see it in black and white.... O well! I will just brace myself and pull through it as usual. My wonderful boyfriend seems to know when to step in, although if he reads this may decide to head out of town that week (if he was thinking cleverly). LOL!

Regardless, I am just going to take it as it comes and promise myself to enjoy every moment of it. Memories is what I find to be the silver lining in it all. I will just have probably a little more of them to tell when I am old and sitting around with the other ladies in a nursing home.

I hope that everyone will enjoy the season for the reason, relax, make wonderful memories with their loved ones and avoid the stress that usually comes with this time of the year. That is my goal for the season! Maybe it will make for a great beginning of a new year as well!

Until then....
