Where Have I Been?

Grandma used to say once you hit 21, time really flies. That is so true. I have know idea where time has gone since Thanksgiving, maybe even Labor Day. I have no concept of time anymore. I really wanted to make it to St. Louis to visit family during this holiday season, but guess what folks? It's the weekend before Christmas. I've been busy at home and at work. Wanting to crash takes top priority over anything else lately. So I will try to do better making posts and hopefully showing you some of my Christmas decorations this weekend.

I think the hubby has food poisoning. He became very, very sick early yesterday morning about 1am. He was sick all day yesterday. There are no flu symptoms and nothing seems to take care of it. I wanted to take him to the ER late last night. He thought about it then refused to go. Thankfully and slowly this morning he began coming around. He still doesn't look so good. But he's able to keep a little in his stomach and he's getting hungry. I'd say that's a good sign.

As I was meaning to state earlier. Since I have no concept of time, I have yet to send Christmas cards. I think a lot of people are cutting back this year in the ways they can and this is one. I've received a few so far, but ususally by this time I've gotten a bucket load. That's okay by me though. So, for those of you that are wondering, I may send your card for New Year's instead of Christmas. Trust me, I enjoy every card I get. I even got a new one this year from a family friend in Texas. Thast was a surprise. But, my FAVORITE is the one I, err WE, got from our daughter Erica in Florida. It's a card with numerous thumbnail shots of Timmy our grandson. I'll try to post it sometime too. It's adorable.
For the past 10 years I've had this brilliant idea of taking a picture myself and making my own cards. Do you think that's ever happened? The only one was last year. It was of the hubby standing in front of the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas. Actually it was in front of the casino, but really in front of the Crazy Girls' leggy butts smiling like a crazy monkey. I sent that to our forgiving friends who understand us and weren't offended. Other's I sent something a little more Christmas appropriate. However, most times I look for snowmen or snow scenes with little animals. Those are my favorites. Like the picture above. I love those two furry guys sharing a candy cane.

Now, I've received a Butterfly Award from my crazy friend Tam at Yakiddy Yak Yak. Now she has a cool blog. You have to go check out the birthday cake her daughter made for Tam's granddaughter. It rocks. It has to be one of the prettiest birthday cakes I've seen. Thank you Tam for this award. It really means a lot to me that someone other than family takes the time to read this stuff. heehee. Now, I want to share this with anyone and everyone who takes the time to read this stuff. So, congratulations on your new Butterfly Award. (I've been trying to post all of my awards on my sidebar so I can see them when I post.)
Everyone have a good day. I may be back tonight with an additional post. For those in icy weather like myself, please be careful. There are so many idiots out there that think they know how to drive on ice, but don't!!!

I'm about as Christmas ready as I'll ever be.. The tree is up and decorated, my husband built me a mantel for our stockings and my nativety scene, and I've done all the baking I could possibly do..

I got my winter and autumn fairie's from a yahoo image search for fairies.

Me again! Please go ahead and use that poem if you like. But you don't have to give me credit, because someone else wrote it, so please give him the credit. I just ran across it a few years ago and saved it because I love it.

And I frogot to congratulate you on your award!

Have a great Christmas!

I was wondering where you were.

Sorry your hubby was sick...I've heard there's a stomach bug going around. Sure hope you don't get it. Me too.

Hi Lisa :)

I'm sorry your husband is sick and I hope he feels better soon.

Time does go by too quickly! I thought I had more time to post Christmas stuff and here I am 3 days before trying to think of a way to combine everything into one for my Monday post since it'll be my last before the New Year.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

I hope your husband feels better! There has been a stomach virus 'round here that seems to hit this way...poor thing!

Time just moves SO fast and we with Thanksgiving late this year, well, it seemed we had so much to do and not enough time in which to DO it!

But I bet you are doing it all beautifully!
