12 days of MOM christmas

(to the tune of 12 days of Christmas, the final chorus…loosely)

For the 12 days of Christmas my lovely family gave to meeeee…

A mile long list of things to do for everybody

60 Christmas cards for ME to fill out (half for people who never return the favor!)

School classroom parties, they know I can’t say no to

Demands for toys that have been sold out since Novemberrrrrr

A house full of decorations to erect (by myself)

10 dozen freakin’ cookies I’m bakin’

A zillion Gifts to buy for everyone (and the cats too)

Parties to drag us all to

Four kids to wrestle into Christmas pictures

Floors to scrub and mop (cuz company’s a commin’)

A menu to attend to (don’t forget the yams… YUCK)

AND one honking big headache to boot!!!!!!!


Ah the holidays.. kids all a glow with wonder. Father puffed up and proud of all he provides.. and my passed out in the corner from sheer exhaustion! I am convinced that the holidays are NOT for women. Nope, we get extra work and the hopes and dreams of everyone for their holiday memories rest on our shoulders to plan and bring to life. All this for the 2.6 seconds it takes my family to turn my beautifully wrapped packages (that I’ve spend DAYS on) into a pile the size of Everest! Oh the joy of the season:-)

Bah MomBug

Momma needs a makeover!

Oh kids.. this is one give away I don’t just want I NEED!!! As any of you can tell my blog design is less than shabby chic it’s just plain old shabby! I’m BEYOND clueless when it comes to designing a blog. Heck I even have trouble using the darn templates! I’m in big time need of a makeover, um so is my blog HA!

So I found me a contest! over at http://fabulouskcreative.blogspot.com/

See I can’t even do the fun linky stuff the cool kids in the blogosphere do. So wish me luck and go check K out yourself (just don’t enter the contest and lower my odds LOL).

The random ads on my blog crack me up

Yeah I’ve got a TON of those adsense ads on my blog. I read something about how you could make money using them… sure in about 12 months I’ll MAYBE have hit their $100 threshold to get paid. But I’d blog money or not anyway. Can I get an Amen from my bloggy girls out there?!

So I was just perusing the blog… wishing I could do the fancy stuff the rest of you do.. buttons, pics, kick butt backgrounds. I’m still stuck in blogspot template kindergarten. Anyway one in particular caught my eye. It is titled “Cat Urine Behavior”

PAUSE for HUH? moment

I’ve had cats (usually in groups of two or more) since I was about four. To my observation cats simply dig a hole in whatever the can find. Hopefully litter, but they aren’t opposed to dirty clothes, or clean for that matter, dirt, house plants and the like. Then they simply let her rip and wha la.. cat pee! Is there really a need to observe it, catalog, analyze, and assign it a behavioral category. I’m just sayin’

Happy Friday All

Travel. Eat. Drink. Write. REPEAT
