When Your Best Just Isn't...

Here we are a few days away from not only a new year, but the start of a new decade as well and I find myself thinking...a lot. I've been toying with the ideas of nice vs mean and good vs evil when it comes to my interactions with my extended family. Just to sum it up they suck! At the beginning of this year I decided that I would put forth the effort to be a better niece and actually phone regularly and try to recognize them for their birthday's and go to most family events, even if only for a little while if I had other plans. Now at the closing of this year I find myself a bit perplexed and just feeling strangely regarding them. I don't just feel for me though, but my father and sister as well. I know out of the four of us, I am the most sensitive, but I went from anger to just sadness, but why? Why do I allow people who obviously don't care to affect me so? I then start to remember all of the wrongs, which far outweigh the rights, that I shouldn't remember as most of them happened when I was very young. Exhausting. I quit, I'm jumping of the merry-go-round, I refuse to play the game any further.
I wasn't going to make any resolutions for the new year, but now I feel like it I should. I'll have to think about it though...
Happy Monday...

Christmas is truly my favorite time of the year. I enjoy the holiday cheer that most people exude, the hustle and bustle about the crisp air, and mostly importantly the celebration of the night Jesus Christ was born. I love it all. Even though it's not going to snow for Christmas, we still have snow on the ground and though it is supposed to ice tonight, hopefully some of the snow will still be visible. With that I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas...and in a few other languages too

A Charlie in the Box?

Heard this song standing in line at Sears last night...oh the memories!!!



Snow Dayz

I LOVE Snow and finally we had a substantial amount...Here is Blizzard 09' from my eyes.

Sargie getting ready for the snow in his fashionable bomber jacket.

The Christmas trees in the backyard during the snowfall.

Sargie playing in the snow...a little.


One of the many robin's trying to take cover in the now bare trees during the snowfall.

My car underneath the snow.

My mom and squirt shovelling away...I think I was supposed to be helping lol.


The path that we dug for Sarge, so he could move about the backyard freely.

Hardwork always pays!

Not that I promote either of these wireless company's because well I'm not with either one of them, but in the battle of the commercials, Verizon clearly has appeal! I laugh and sing along...AT&T you better step it up!



And here's a throw back...hilarious...

10 Days and Counting

Hope all of you shoppers out there are partially done with your gift buying. There's only ten more days to go and then Christmas will be here. I'm still holding out hope for a white Christmas, but the temperatures keep going up and down and then back up again, it doesn't look too good.

Anyhow, back to studying...Good luck in your ventures and Happy Monday!!

I absolutely LOVE this song right now...so I'm sharing!! Enjoy!

So I stumbled across these commercials and I have not ever seen them on television, however in the first on I love the line: "One foreign yetti hikes with a teddy..." and in the second I love the line: yikes there's the clown...I think clowns are scary anyway so I agree!

And There Used to be Snow...

Yay how wonderful to have a mini snow event!?! I have to say I prefer snow during the week when there is a possibility to sleep in, but I'll take it any day as opposed to no days at all. It was really pretty to look at...I like to call them wishful snow storms because I wish there was more. I don't like it to snow and disappear :-( none the less we should have more soon as this is just the beginning of winter!!!


I have officially decided that I am not giving Christmas gifts this year. No, I'm no Mrs. Scrooge, but I have been toying around with the thought of a more themed gift giving and have really been thinking of what I can give to my short list of individuals that they would actually use throughout 2010...in essence this means no gift cards (I think that's cheating for people you know!!). I have a few people covered, my immediate family and a couple of youngsters that were on my list, but I still have eight people to think/shop for (that includes myself). I like to be given gifts that reflect me, so I hope to do the same for people on my list.

Happy Shopping!!

P.S. My last week of classes!!!! I'm super excited for that!

Keeping with the spirit of the season, I going to do 4 weeks of holiday commercials. This first one is super cute!!!! Talk to the moose....
