I need to also extend a thank you to Christmasstar, who also donated her points for me. I am so glad to be a part of this wonderful place and soon I'll be the one who can give to another here!!!

Thank you both so very much.

Today I received a wonderful and unexpected gift from Caninemom3. She gave me a Platinum membership good for three months. This was so unexpected and so sweet!!! I needed to be sure everyone knew how thoughtful she was, you see I am so leery of buying online, giving my credit card number or anything of the sort, I just thought everyone should know how much I appreciate her gift.

You may have read in my first blog a little about me and my history and the fact that our Family Christmas Shop is a little beacon of light for us.
My Father passed away in 2004 at the age of 54 and he was the biggest inspiration to me and his love of Christmas and love of life has spurred me on, on many a bleak and dreary days.
Recently my Mum has been really struggling with things and I have desperately trying to stop her falling into the depths of depression, she has been feeling terrible empty and low and even though I have been trying to help her I know that it was something that I just could not fix.

My Aunt (on my fathers side) has recently returned from living in Scotland, she moved from the New Forest to Aberfeldy in Perthshire 22 years ago. As the area was better equipped for the well being and education of her daughter who was born with cerebral palsey.
Now Her daughter is 31 and the options and funding that were available has ceased and...

Tags vacation, work

As I sit here getting ready to wind down for the night, I have that feeling in the pit of my stomach, the feeling of dread of going back to work. I have worked for the same company for the last 10.5 years and its the same thing everyday, prep for the day and put out fires that are not my own because I unfortunately work with some people who do not care if they do their job or not. I don't like to complain about the others as I like everyone I work with but it just annoys me to no end where I have to do other peoples work until I need help getting caught up in my own job. I have no sense of accomplishment in my job anymore, and now that my vacation is over my thoughts turn over to my dream of running my own shop. I have years to wait yet I cannot wait until that day is here. Until then as a semi-wise man once told me: "It's a rat race, and the rats are winning."

Christmas Countdown - 2011

Posted 07-07-2011 at 05:56 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I should have blogged this instead of being so long winded in the Countdown thread. What I dork I am sometimes.

As a footnote to this I would just note that I find the day after the Fourth of July to be kind of like the day after Christmas. We spend some time cleaning up the sad remains of a good time and contemplating how long it will be tell it comes around again.

Of course, unlike Christmas, in Utah we get TWO Fourth of July holidays -- there's the 4th and then the 24th of July, which is called Pioneer Day here in Utah, commemorating the arrival in the valley of the Mormon Pioneers on July 24th, 1847.

What else is there to do on the 24th besides BBQ, fireworks and water fights? Well, there's the parade, the biggest in America, featuring pioneer and cowboy themed floats from all over the valley.

For me though there is just one Fourth of July, just as there is just one Christmas.

I know folks who celebrate...
