Come listen to the ramblings and assorted babblings of a crazed mother and newbie author. It might not always be helpful, but it should be amusing.

That's what I am, and that's what I did, hahahaha

I went shopping yesterday and GOT ALL MY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DONE IN ONE DAY!!!
I spent money like they were going to stop printing it if I didn't spend it all at once, but I'm done. Now I just have to wrap them all. If I start right now I might be done by Christmas...2006.

As a Christmas present to myself I had lunch with my best friend. We split a pitcher of Sangria and talked and laughed and had a great time. I'm really doing my best to ENJOY the traditions of Christmas instead of sweating the small stuff.

This is not as easy as it sounds. I have PMS and have run into some rough patches recently, but I'm trying to focus on the positives.

One very positive thing is that I have a lot of great friends. Thank you all so much for listening to me babble and even commenting on my ramblings! We've been so busy that I haven't been on line as much lately so I haven't done my usual blog hopping, but boy do I think about y'all!!!

Well, I had better get to the wrapping while the girls are at school, if I don't get back in the next two weeks, have a great Christmas everyone! Thanks for being my best presents!

    Awww, Ari. *sending a hug*

    You're right to not sweat the small stuff. Then remember that almost everything IS small stuff.

    Happy holidays!

    Lucky you to be done with Christmas shopping. I'm pretty much doing all online and I hope they all make it for Christmas!

    Since your post, I went to the mall and ended up with bags and bags of stuff, which I inturn stuffed into big giant bags. I looked like a double-bagged rather tall Santa's elf!
