My Ridiculous Christmas T-Shirt Collection

Posted 11-30-2010 at 08:29 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I finally decided to go through my Christmas t-shirt collection to see what I have, and to my astonishment I now have 16 different shirts. It all started 5 years ago when I was going through a rack of shirts and I came across a brown Grinch shirt, I liked it and thought to myself I don't have any Christmasy shirts so I decided to buy it and it was only $.75. I liked that shirt a lot and my collection just kept growing every year, and every year I cannot wait until the stores bring out the new collection, I look year round on Ebay, just for something new. The 16 only takes in account the ones I wear everywhere, I have a number that have been "retired" just because they are worn or something I wear on a lazy day. I enjoy wearing them for my kids because they love them also, and they have their own shirts to.

I love this time of year and I literally wear it in my sleeve or chest.

Here are pictures of my collection!

Surviving Bullying

I haven't really talked about bullying until this blog. I have been reading about some of the very sad and tragic cases of what can happen as a consequence of bullying and I truly feel for each victim and their family.

I am a survivor of bullying. Not just as a child or adolescent but also as an adult.

I guess my first experience of real bullying came about when I was in junior high. I hated junior high with a passion. It just so happened at the time when I was in 8th grade my father's alcoholism went into full throttle. It was during that time that he decided to not put food on the table so much and also decided our family did not need the necessities such as soap, laundry soap and things of the sort to keep clean.

I was wearing my sister's clothes, I remember, and she is 11 years older than I so needless to say they did not fit. I have NEVER been a confident person and certainly was not at that stage. A group of the kids knew how to get to...

As We Approach Christmas

Tonight is Thanksgiving. I cannot even begin to count all the blessings I have in my life. I think of all the people here in our country and other countries who have nothing. I mean absolutely nothing. And here I am. I never want for food or warmth or any of the creature comforts that every human being and yes even "animals" should have a right to. It is not because of anything I did or do that I have all these blessings. I believe they are all a gift from God, our Father.

Now that we are approaching Christmas I think about Mary and Joseph and the way they found their way into history.

What was it like for them to become the caretakers on Earth of the Messiah ?? Did they see him as the Messiah ?? or just their baby ?? I wonder....

I used to think of them as I would see them in paintings or depicted in the movies of my youth, always holy and always devout. Never doubting or getting angry. In short I did not see them as human, which...

Mrs. Carey's Fruit Cake

Posted 11-23-2010 at 04:06 PM by MerryCarey (MerryCarey's Blog)

Some of you may know that my father passed away in October, leaving me the last surviving member of the family I grew up in. It also leaves me the sole owner and guardian of a well-worn index card that bears a typed recipe with handwritten amendments, and is stained with baking ingredients and years of use.

Fruitcake was never a joke in our house. I suppose I was in high school before I was aware that in many households, Christmas fruitcake was a despised object of ridicule. But not the fruitcake my parents made from a recipe passed down through my family. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, various friends and neighbors never failed to remind my parents: “Don’t forget to save me some fruitcake again this year!”

On Thanksgiving Day, our kitchen was always busy—but not with turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Instead, our kitchen table groaned with ingredients and a huge roasting pan in which my mother and father compounded the batter...

When Did I get Old?

I sit here tonight with this one thought, when did I get old? I have in recent weeks decided to grow a goatee, which I do every now and then, it has been growing in and I noticed I have quite a few white hairs in it now, it is normally as red as Kris Kringle's from Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, but the white hairs just stick out to me. Watching part of the American Music Awards last night and I had never heard of most of these bands. The American Pie movies aren't funny to me any longer, I would rather watch a documentary over a sitcom, and I read the labels on food containers now. I know as I will be entering my late 30's in just over a month I am closer to 50 than I am to 20. Ughh!
