Turning 60

Posted 07-02-2011 at 04:51 PM by caninemom3

It has been such a nice weekend so far. It has been sunny and warm and Summer is definitely in the air. It just happens that this day is a birthday that is bittersweet. It is the 60th birthday of my belated husband David.

When David was here one of the wonderful things about his birthday, aside from celebrating him, was that it was about that time of the year we began to plan for the coming Christmas Season each year.

It was always so exciting !! David loved Chrstmas almost as much as me. He definitely became the same little kid I do at Christmas. Each year at Christmas he spared no expense or time in making sure everything was as perfect as it could be for me and really for everyone.

There would always be a night, usually just before Christmas by about a week, where we went to his mother's house and he wrapped one by one the gifts he had bought me and would bring them into the living room to let me see them, shake them and wonder. Each ALWAYS...

All things Christmas!

Posted 06-26-2011 at 11:59 AM by MichelleluvsChristmas (Michelle's Christmas Blog!)

It sometimes makes me laugh how much I love Christmas. I remember when I lived in a group home, I took the tree in January while still decorated and placed it in my bedroom so I could appreciate it all year long!. I was made fun of (in a good way) by the staff and other residents, but they always told me it was what made me special.
I happen to now work at the same group home that I lived in 6 years ago. It's so amazing to be there around Christmas time, when they have no where to go. We come together, make a turkey for them, and we are given a nice budget to get them gifts.
This is a big reason why I love Christmas, being able to see their faces on Christmas morning. It's truly a blessing.
I could cry just talking about all the things I love about this holiday. Coming on this site every day truly makes me feel at home, because for a long time I thought I was the only Christmas nut.

Crazy weeks!

Posted 06-25-2011 at 09:43 AM by MichelleluvsChristmas (Michelle's Christmas Blog!)

What a crazy week it has been! I celebrated Father's Day with those who have been father figures in my life, graduated Monday, got offered a new job on Thursday and today (Saturday) I have a wedding to go to.

It's almost intimidating to see all this change happening all at once. It scares me because things are finally working out. I will also be working full time and doing online courses full time which is scary as well. I hope that I can push through with a normal amount of stress.

I think the best way to combat stress for me is to come here on MMC and just chat with everyone. I always love seeing everyone's pictures that they have posted in their albums! Such beautiful families and lovely decorations, and it just warms my heart. I cannot wait for Christmas to come, for the snow to fall, and to really be able to appreciate the true meaning of Christmas.

The best moment I had last Christmas, was skating in a public park. They had the barrels of

Just some thoughts.

Posted 06-18-2011 at 11:12 AM by MichelleluvsChristmas (Michelle's Christmas Blog!)

Well here I sit at work, having a quiet morning so far. For those who don`t know I work at a group home for youth at risk of homelessness. Its a great job and the youth are so unique and different. I love it!. Today, I am heading to the Comic Expo to see some different stars such as William Shatner, Tia Carrere and many more... I'm not much of a comic person or anything like that, but I am so stoked to just check everything out.

Tomorrow is fathers day, and its always been a rough day for me. My dad is not in my life as a result of drug and alcohol issues, and needless to say I am a daddy's girl. So I take the day to celebrate the fathers around me that have been there when I needed it most. I think we sometimes take for granted having two parents or guardians in our lives. I do not have contact with my Mother either, so it can be difficult most days.
I graduate from college on Monday, and I couldn't be more excited... although I wish I could have my family there with

Candy, Chips, and Pop... UGH!

Posted 06-14-2011 at 09:48 PM by MichelleluvsChristmas (Michelle's Christmas Blog!)

So I've been thinking that it's time I need to lose some weight. I've been overweight, not by much, but it's starting to effect my mood and I find myself being very sleepy. I want to start becoming healthy and active, before Christmas arrives (especially cause I usually attend 2 dinners every year). I feel at a loss because I have tried yoga -can't really bend- p90x -too difficult for a newbie- and many other things. Does anyone else feel like were in the same boat here? My boyfriend is fairly fit, he began doing p90x because he could afford to lose 5-10 lbs maximum, so he sees results! I admire him for his dedication, but I don't know how to get into it... HE LOVES IT!. I do schooling online full time and work 2 relief jobs, but my life is far from busy. There are days where I know I could be doing something but I just don't have the energy. I just feel stuck, and it can be the worst feeling in the world... I don't want my life to end early because of the food I eat and because of sheer...
