A blog of self pity and doubt

This is not going to be a particularly happy or Christmassy blog. I guess I want all of you to know the true me because I think of all of you as friends. I am not sure why I feel it necessary to share some of this with you but I feel honesty is one of the utmost important things in life and I have the sense that I carry out a bit of a charade at times. I have some things to talk about today that may not be the most uplifting. I am depressed. I am usually always this way but I have learned to still function anyway. I must. I am extremely blessed in that I have my health, my freedom, my sister, my furchildren, a home to live in, enough food to eat but most important of all, I have Christ and I know He above all understands and is here. But I am still quite sad a lot of the time. I try to be upbeat on the forums but I suspect a bit of the "true" me creeps out sometimes. For that, I am sorry. My oldest goddaughter likens me to Eeyore and I agree. That sad little blue donkey is defiinitely...

Kindred spirits

Posted 08-25-2010 at 04:26 PM by caninemom3

Animals mean a lot to me. In fact, they are what keeps me going when nothing else seems to help. I have 3 canines and 3 felines and they are my "furry children." I tend to love all animals though, not just the cute ones, I have a healthy respect for the not so cute ones too, you know, snakes, spiders, etc. I would never hurt a creature unless one was hurting one of my furchildren. I do not personally even believe in killing ants, bees, or whatever. I have just always felt a kind of connection to animals because perhaps I am a mammal myself, which is an animal. It seems a lot of folks do not like to think of themselves as animals but we are.

Throughout my life my furchildren have been there for me. From the time I was just little to now. It of course has not been the same furchildren as I have now, because as we know they sadly have a very brief life span. I would NEVER think of ever hurting one or abusing one and those who do in my opinion need to have whatever...

Four Months Until The Big Day

Posted 08-25-2010 at 09:29 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Looking at the calender I see we are now 4 months away to Christmas Day and only about 2 months away from decorating for the season and I am realizing I am starting to get a little behind in my planning. I learned of keeping a notebook when I became a member of this site but I procrastinated and here we are and I never did start one. So instead of one of my normal blogs I am doing sort of an impromptu checklist for myself to get myself back on track and I won't lose it this way.

1. Start putting together Christmas list for family and myself. Usually start this in May but I didn't and will be "rushing" for myself since my wife is already asking for it so she can start shopping.
2.Plan for Christmas Eve Family party, put together menu and what for each guest to bring. Two years ago we made homemade Buffalo wings and Garlic Parmesan wings along with Snickerdoodle cookies, and my wife's peppermint bark. Try new recipes especially the Peppermint Patty Surprise...

This time of year

Posted 08-24-2010 at 12:00 AM by Faith4always

This time of year always gets me to thinking about Christmas! I absolutely love Christmas. It never lasts long enough for me. That's one reason why I enjoy MMC so much. I can have Christmas year round and not look foolish!! haha

Here it is, August. Almost to the very end of August. September 1st, I will put out my fall decorations. I have a lovely fall wreath I made myself, along with another fall wreath I purchased, along with fall leaves and garlands. I hope to get pumpkins too. These decorations will stay up until at least until Thanksgiving. We will add to our porch a jackolantern for Halloween..probably the week before the actual day. They get mushyif you leave them up too long. Wanna ask me how I know?? Let's just say that experience is a good teacher!! hahaha

Then, in November, we will put out our Thanksgiving decorations. I have a cute little turkey and a few of Nathan's (who is currently 4 years old) his little crafts we've made through...

Angels on earth

As usual, I don't know how to start. I want to talk about 2 amazing people who I have known since I was about 16, a very, very long time. Their names are Paul and Sue and they are my very, very best friends in this world or any other. They are both nurses, she an R.N. and he an L.P.N. and both have hearts bigger and more giving and warmer than the sun. Throughout my life Paul and Susan as I call her have been with me in the worst possible times and also the best possible times. Paul was best man at my first wedding to David. In fact, he and David wen to to school together. I met Susan when I was dating David and Susan and Paul had begun to date. It was instant sisterhood, let me tell you. I could go on and on about how wonderful these 2 people are and what they mean to me but we would be here all day and it would get really boring for those of you trying to read this, so I will cut it down to a couple of incidents.

In 1992 Paul and Susan and David and I had a ritual of meeting...
