A Long Winter's Nap, Kinda

Posted 01-18-2011 at 01:00 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

It has been an eventful post-Christmas season for me. So unlike years passed. I've been away and I don't like to do that and there are many things around MMC that have been neglected as a result.

Sorry about that.

We took a screaming trip to California for the funeral of Sandy's Grandmother and returned home to Utah to find a crisis in the making at my Mother's house. My sister was in the hospital for a while and we had a few other family health issues that required our attention. Fortunately, all are healthy or will recover. It was just a time period where hands-on assistance was needed and we did what had to be done.

Now we're back home and trying to pick up the pieces.

How hectic has it been?

We had a visit from a neighbor the other night who looked at our still decorated tree and noticed an unopened Christmas present still sitting on the floor way up behind the tree.

Another Dream (sequel to Xmas365 & Sons Light & Design)

Posted 01-14-2011 at 09:21 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Okay, okay, you may have heard this before or a relative facsimile of it but my mind has been freed, I know what I was meant to do, I want this to come true. My wife and I were talking about what we would do if we won that large mega millions jackpot last week, but we don't play so it didn't really matter, I asked her if she would quit her job, she told me not yet, maybe down the road but not now. She asked me the same thing, and I didn't hesitate I said yes, and then I said I would open a Christmas store. I have been thinking about the Christmas store thing ever since I read RachRon's thread about it, (thank you for planting that seed in my brain). I described I would like to own a Christmas light decorating business, but that would only be a 2 month job, this way I would be able to immerse myself in Christmas everyday for my job. Christmas makes me happy, and I would love to do something I love. The ideas of what to do, how to set it up, and such have been flowing through my brain now...

I'VE LEARNED...

I've learned-
that you cannot make someone love you.
All you can do is be someone who can be loved.
The rest is up to them.

I've learned-
that no matter how much I care,
some people just don't care back.

I've learned-
that it takes years to build up trust,
and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned-
that it's not what you have in your life
but who you have in your life that counts.

I've learned-
that you can get by on charm for about
fifteen minutes.
After that, you'd better know something.

I've learned-
that you shouldn't compare
yourself to the best others can do.

I've learned-
that you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.

I've learned-
that it's taking me a long time
to become the person I want...

The Tragedy In Arizona

Posted 01-10-2011 at 05:57 AM by caninemom3

I don't understand it. We as a species, people, humans, never seem to learn. We have repeated the same horrible mistakes over and over again. This past weekend, as all probably know, there was a tragic event in Arizona where a disturbed young man started firing a gun. Some people were killed, including an innocent 9-year-old girl and a judge. A public servant was also critically injured.

And what do we do as a species, this human race ?? We start POINTING FINGERS ! This, as well as any other time, IS NOT THE TIME FOR IT. Why do we always want to blame the other guy ?? In my opinion, ALL POLITICAL PARTIES ARE GUILTY OF RHETORIC THAT SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN. Did this rhetoric cause the tragic event to happen ? I don't know. That is where some of the finger pointing starts. I will not point fingers. As a nation, we need to PULL TOGETHER especially in a time like this. Republicans, Democrats, Tea Party, Independents and ALL NEED TO STEP BACK and STOP THE CHILDISH NAME CALLING...

Dear God,
Did you mean for the giraffe to look like that or was it an accident?

Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, why don't you just keep the ones you have now?
