hello, life?

i'd really like my blog back.

and maybe a little more time to finish making presents.

and, if it's not too much trouble, could you run down to the post office and get the stamps i need to finally put my cards in the mail?

and don't think i haven't noticed how you interfered with my Sunday laundry schedule.

i'm just sayin'...

I could use some stamps too. I've got a handful of cards that didn't get mailed because I ran out of stamps and we're running out of time. Only 10 Days. (panic runs through my thoughts....)

Jill said...

I've been wondering where you've been lately, apparently busy.

life has taken every sinly weekend in december from me due to illness.

April said...

Oh Amen to this!

Kelly said...

Oh, the laundry! Definitely the laundry. If we could come up with a system of how you can do laundry while not at home, I think we'd make it big! It just won't do itself.

Your poem is so touching.

Becky said...

Hugs coming your way!

I feel the same way as you do Lelly. There is just not enough time in the day!

Since, I know you have nothing to do (LOL) I am tagging you!

Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends. Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy this entire entry and paste into a new blog post on your site. Change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then tag 3 of your blogging friends so that you can learn a little about them.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Wrapping paper - Even though I absolutely HATE wrapping presents, I will not allow myself to take the easy way out when it comes to Christmas presents.
2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial. I love the smell of real ones, but cannot stand the needles that get stuck in the carpet and tracked all over the house.
3. When do you put up the tree? Normally it is up the day after Thanksgiving. With us buying the new house this year, the tree didn't get put up until last week.
5. Do you like eggnog? Love it! Don’t forget a dash of ground nutmeg on top!
6. Favorite gift received as a child? Jelly Shoes - I wanted them so badly and was ecstatic when Santa brought them to me.
7. Hardest person to buy for? My Mother-in-law. What do you buy a woman who has everything she wants?
8. Easiest person to buy for? Amber - Buying for a 3 year old princess is simple!
9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes!
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Both. I mail cards to my close friends and family. Then I email everyone on my contact list.
11.Worst Christmas gift you ever received? Underwear with the days of the week on them - When I was a teenager
12. Favorite Christmas Movie? A Christmas Story
13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Black Friday
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Yes, I have regifted some clothing that didn't fit me.
15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Pumpkin Pie
16. Lights on the tree? I like white lights, but the kids talked me into colored ones this year.
17. Favorite Christmas song? Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer
18.Travel at Christmas or stay home? We "travel" for Christmas every year. Not far, but 3 houses in 2 days (not counting ours) is a little much.
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Cupid, Rudolph - Nope I sure can't
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? Angel
21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Both - Since we have so many places to go, we usually end up opening gifts on Christmas eve & Christmas day
22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? Not being able to "run" into the store for one item - You get stuck in line forever
23. Favorite ornament theme or color? I have all of the ornaments from when I was a kid. I love pulling them out every year
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? I am not a ham or turkey person. I would much rather have an Italian dinner (Lots of Pasta!)
25. What do you want for Christmas this year? To spend a wonderful day with my family

time...never seems enough of it to finish the things I need to do and to some things I want to do.

Chris said...

Where does the time go? This time of year seems so busy. It would be nice to be able to sit and enjoy the feeling of the season.

Lucy said...

I hope everything is o.k. Thinking of you.

Barb said...

I'm sorry for your loss. The matching dresses are cute.

michelle said...

I'm very sorry for your loss, Lelly. Goodbyes are truly so hard.

Kelly said...

I've been thinking of you with a heavy heart ever since I read your post above yesterday. That's about the saddest song I can think of, and I'm sorry that it applies right now. Goodbyes are the worst part of life, I think. I hope you are all right.

Rachel said...

So TRUE! If only life would stay out of the way of our blogging! GEEZ!

Little Oregon Bug said...

Haha, how true! December is quite possibly the busiest month ever.
