Ready for Christmas, Ladybugs?!

Christmas presents bought?
Christmas presents wrapped? 
Christmas presents that need to be mailed, mailed?
Christmas cards bought, addressed and mailed?
House decorated?
Cookies baked?
Food bought?

Sounds like an overwhelming task when put that way, doesn't it?! For many of us it can truly become a stressful time! But, we are a strong bunch and we can be cope with it!

Don't forget to take some time each day 'just for you'! Sit back with a hot cuppa something (coffee, tea, cocoa, buttered rum!!!) and just relax for a few minutes each day.  Maybe take it along to the bathroom and sip it as you relax in a nice warm bubble bath just before bed.

This is supposed to be a 'fun' time of year. Ask your family members for help -- you really do NOT have to do it all by yourself.

For the first time in *many* years my DD will be with me this year.  She has come home to stay at least for a while as she is going through a really tough time. Many of you know part of her story and I'd rather not say just what all is going on, but I do ask that you keep her in your prayers if you will. (both of us for that matter!!) I am just so pleasesd that I will be with both of my babies this year for Christmas.

Georgie had moved into the house and is doing quite nicely!  Miss Molly is still not terribly happy about the new living arrangements, but she is coping!!  Next on the agenda for Georgie is having him declawd (front paws) to keep Miss Molly, my furnature, area rugs, and my body from being shredded!!

I send to you all: love and best wishes for a wonderful Christmas......

I think it is going to let me post....Wonder of Wonders....lol

Well now that I can type I have to ask......how do you get colored text? I don't have that option.

Christmas. Well, I have bought nothing but I plan on getting a few things because I am going to get a brand new Great,Great granddaughter after Christmas or anytime really...That will make 4 great grands for me. And since she is here in town I think I will spoil her. LOL.....a little....

Funny thing is that before we came home from the camper we were in Wally's World and they had the end of the year sales and the little girl clothes were soooo cute and they had from new born to about 4 years..I told Del that I would like to get some stuff, I mean it was only like $3 and some of them were 3 and 4 pc sets....He laughed at me and asked if I had something to tell him....lol...and if I did how did I know it was going to be a girl......we had a good laugh over that...Then we get home after the funeral and everything to find that I could have used those little girl clothes......Hey,, maybe I am the Nebraska Medium????.....LOL

Anyway, we will probably go to our sons for Christmas and not to think that I am just a grinch a lot of times through the year the kids get stuff from us but just not at Christmas time.....their parents are getting them things like computers and itablets or whatever that will keep their minds off me....lol...
