Christmas? Over already?
Every year I say the same thing. All that shopping and worrying about gifts, and prices, and bills, and time, and the Who's down in Whoville with all the noise, noise, noise, that after the holidays are over I always go--well, damn, all that for one day. It just seems like so much crazy and it's all over so fast. I love Christmas though, and I love it even more when I can spend a lot of money. heh, heh. Yes, I can be materialistic. I shouldn't be, it should be about being with loved ones and loving that I have decent health (notice I didn't say good. I love my chips!) but anyway, I did enjoy my holiday. Even though a dark cloud was cast with my grandma passing, it was still good. It was okay with her death because she had a long, good life. She saw her kids everyday, was taken care of, always had company, laughed a lot and enjoyed herself for a long time. I also think it's a bit of a relief for my mom and aunts to get a break from helping her. She was a lot of work. Rest in Peace Grandma!

I also hope everyone got what they wanted for Christmas. I did have fun just hanging out and doing nothing. I went out to eat a few times and enjoyed sleeping in. If it hadn't been for my damn boot search things would have been better. You don't want to know how hard it's been searching for boots, both on foot and online. I feel like I've been searching for the Arc of the Covenant! for God's sake! Sheesh! I did finally find some--Columbia boots from Amazon.com. I hope to God they fit. The other ones I had were too small and I had to send them back, it sucked because I loved them. Argh!

Right now I'm cooking dinner and watching La Femme Nikita. I have decided to go on a TV on DVD surge and I'm re-watching a lot of my favs from the beginning and also putting a lot of TV show's that I haven't seen but would like to see in my Netflix Queue such as: Mad Men, How I Met Your Mother, The Wire, and Dexter to name a few. Thank God for time off!

Christmas came, it came just the same


Well, I am sure that kids everywhere were up an hour ago (I'm up typing this at 3:27 am) freaking out over their Wii's and High School Musical Tour buses, and Xbox 360's and Barbies and remote control cars. I remember toys on Christmas. I cetainly remember Christmas day. I COULD NOT WAIT to open gifts, and I remember unwrapping and seeing all the stuff and just toys, toys, toys! I remember wanting to believe in Santa, and for a short while ACTUALLY literally believing that he existed and wanting to keep that alive (for some reason).

I wish I had kids now just for that reason. But as I got older I enjoyed more giving than receiving (though receiving is still very, very good) but I came to realize that to really enjoy what I receive I have to buy it myself. Not to say that I don't get some decent gifts, but sometimes I have to draw blueprints and get all Splinter cell with tracking chips for the person to actually get the gift right. Sometimes not even worth it, I'll just buy it myself. Still, I do like giving and seeing the persons face light up when they open it and I REALLY know they wanted it. It's just great to see them unwrapping and not being able to tell what the package is and then, WOW! They can't believe it. I like them having no idea what it could be. heehee.
I looked at my favorite Christmas cartoon "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" I love it, so I'm happy about that too. See, it doesn't take much to make me happy. I keep telling people!

I guess that is the joys (and miseries) of getting older. I still get a bit giddy, but just a tad. I still love Christmas but it's a little sad that I can't get that childish glee like I used too. Oh well. I DO get it when I buy for myself so I believe that counts. At any rate, I just wanted to pop on to tell you guys Merry Christmas. I'm gonna make my rounds to you guys tomorrow, so clean up, put out the good linen and some snacks--I'm be hungry. But we can sit and have a nice chat, it's Christmas after all. I do not have my Christmas Poem like I had before, but I still plan on (for real this time) doing something different with my blog.

Again, I miss having my good handful of usual readers. I miss that very much, but I still think I want to change my blog, if not for anyone but myself. Tidy it and dare I say, change it from Buffy. (!) Could be, could be. Well, I hope you all enjoy your day, however you spend it. That is what counts!

Christmas Interrupted
My Grandma died on Friday--on my birthday. Sad, and I actually feel funny saying that, or typing that outloud. she was 103 and she had been around so long I never thought I'd be without her. It was a little easy to take because she was, well, 103 and she had a long life and the last several months were spent not so great, bed ridden and not really knowing who we were, at least I don't think.

She was in a Hospice, I think I told you guys all ready. Last night I was thinking about what she used to do and what we used to do with her and it was sad, thinking about her being spry in her earlier days and how she loved to go outside and garden and just go outside period. I will miss her.

See ya in Heaven Grandma. Love you! Hope you can cross over to Rainbow Bridge and play with Scarlett and Tracy a little while. (((hugs)))

FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
Can you tell I had no imagination for my blog title? Anyway, I can't believe this week is coming to a close. I fought long and hard to get to Friday. Damn! It was a hard fight, D-Day hard. I plan on enjoying the weekend. My birthday is Friday. I'm posting this on Thursday, that's because I probably will forget to post this on Friday. So...I'm gonna say Happy Birthday to me--TODAY! hehehe. I'm pretty much done Christmas shopping. I did the bulk online as usual. The best way to go. I'm just gonna chill this weekend. I can't wait to sleep in. Yea! The best part of the weekend.

I'm gonna have some time off next week. Not a lot, but a little and I'm gonna enjoy it. I don't have much to say today, but I hope everyone is enjoying the pre-holidays. Christmas is my favorite Holiday, but I'd like it more if I had kids. I like toys and buying toys. lol.

So, Happy Friday to everyone and Happy Holidays. I plan on being back before Christmas, but have a good weekend everyone.

It's December Ya'll!
I can't believe it's the end of the year--AGAIN! We have snow and ice and it's cool and all, but it's slippery and I'm trying hard not to fall. Ugh! The week is going by fast, and I'm happy. I'm taking Monday off, and I can't wait for our Christmas break. Some more time off to look forward too. Whoooo!

Okay, I'm gonna go back and watch Fringe. Just thought I'd pop in. I need to clean up my blog, and I think I want the look. I hate that a lot of my blog buddies don't blog anymore. :( I spent a lot of time establishing relationship and friendships with those people. Sad. Oh well, those two who still read, love ya!
