The Christmas Tree dilemma has been solved. My mother-in-law figured out she wanted a new tree, so I got her barely-used-almost-new one! She just didn’t like it because it was large and heavy… and she’s not. So, it was pretty hard for her to get it put up. I’m planning on putting it downstairs in […]
I am thankful. I have a lovely home to live in, a good job, good working conditions, a good family, and great husband, a houseful of silly critters, and a bunch of good friends. I hope you all are as blessed.
Just call me the maid. I have just worked my ever-lovin’-butt off! I have cleaned this place from top to bottom, cooked not one, but TWO turkeys, baked two pumpkin pies, grocery shopped for a feast, and managed to somehow keep my sanity. I’m going to go collapse now.
I found out today that the Brenda Lee song I’ve titled this entry with is something like the second most popular Christmas song. That’s hard to believe, what with all the songs to choose from! I was really proud of myself that I even knew who sang this… my daughter called from the mall to […]
If it was only so easy to make my ‘to do’ list disappear! Say the magic words and… voila! The chores are done. It’s been raining here for two days. Two days of sort-of rain… drizzle…cold…windy…ick. I woke up this morning and made an executive decision. No one would be working in the fields today, […]
Yeah, I’m back at it… again. Probably will be until after Christmas. Right now it comes in bursts. I’m trying to figure out what to get people for gifts that will be useful, fairly practical, yet fun or at least something they’ll like. I’m trying NOT to be so practical that they know exactly what […]
You Are From Neptune You are dreamy and mystical, with a natural psychic ability. You love music, poetry, dance, and (most of all) the open sea. Your soul is filled with possibilities, and your heart overflows with compassion. You can be in a room full of friendly people and feel all alone. If you don’t […]
To most of you this means it’s nearing Thanksgiving. To me, this means a little different thing. Our company distributes free turkey’s to all of their customers who spent x-amount of dollars with the company this year. So, actually, it’s not ‘free’ free, but it’s a nice gesture. The only trouble is, it comes at […]
Not only is the wedding ‘on’, but today we (bride-to-be and myself) went to look at a bridesmaid dress that had been ordered in to check for style. Just got back, and it’s a beauty. Will work perfectly, and the price isn’t too bad. Things are progressing. Whew! She tells me things are better than […]
Yeah, I’m back singing Christmas songs. Things must be right in the world again. Well, close, anyway. I’m never quite myself when my kids are messed up. It’s a ‘mom thing’. I try really, really hard not to interfere, and yet make myself accessible to them if they want to talk. So far it’s worked […]
