A Holiday Downsizing

Posted 09-04-2011 at 06:28 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

As we screech past this Labor Day weekend, the holiday season is quickly approaching. This year we will be "downsizing" our gift lists outside of our immediate family, this was a tough decision to come about, but with everything that we have gone through this year, and add in things we have not been able to control like the tornado, flooding in the basement four times thus far we have been left with little choice. We have to talk to family and friends about this, which may or may not be a welcome idea to some.
I know Christmas is not about the gifts, but I do enjoy giving and getting gifts, it will be strange as we aim to keep it low key this year. I hope everyone understands our reasoning, but with rising costs of everything, especially food, gas, heating oil, student loans, etc... and unseen expenses that always seem to pop up around that time of year.

Christmas is still going to be great as we will still will have our traditions of decorations, Christmas...

I think I came to truly know he existed when I was about 19, I was in college and like many before me struggling to make ends meet. Working two jobs, a car that barely ran. Rent, insurance, tuition, books, heat, electric, gas, the amount of debt I was in was overwhelming to me. I think I was at my lowest at Christmas time, everyone else on break rushing home to family and me with no one close left alive and nowhere to go, no money to spare. I couldnít even afford a tree, I was bitter and just feeling horrible and then my car breaks down. I really was in a bad way. I had no money to even get it towed it was on the side of the highway. I was in the car crying and a police offer (a Michigan State Policeman) approached I didnít even hear his car pull

Christmas in May?

Posted 05-23-2011 at 09:09 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

Here we are nearing the end of May, and as usual my mind is starting to make the turn to Christmas. The hockey season, which was playing during last Christmas is still going and culminating to the championship in a couple of weeks, that has my full attention especially since my team hasn't made it this far in nearly 2 decades. But Christmas is sneaking more and more into my thoughts by the day, I have always seemed to really start to shift to it at this time of the year. I don't know why but for some reason it just sits there, the thinking of Christmas shopping, Christmas lists, decorating (how and what I want to change). Memorial Day is a few days away, and with that the unofficial beginning of the summer, yes we will have cookouts, daytrips, swimming, and so on. Get me to July 4 and I will have had my fill of summer. Christmas, what a wonderful time and as usual I cannot wait for the season to begin.

A Dream Of A Dream

Posted 03-28-2011 at 03:44 PM by caninemom3

Sleep deprivation and exhaustion can play funny and quirky tricks on us. They can make us not only tired but sometimes I think bring us to the point of hallucinating if we are tired enough.

Since starting midnight shift for my new job in February I have not slept very well except on my evenings of Friday and Saturday both of which I am off. Then I REALLY sleep. The sleep of exhaustion replete with snoring and (eweeee !!) drooling, the whole nine yards. At least I do manage to get "caught up" somehow on the rest I need.

Today started like so many Mondays. This morning at 7:30 when I finished working, I got a bite of breakfast and then went to bed. The only thing missing was the thing I needed most, sleep. I tried to just relax, tried counting polar bears as one member of MMC member suggested I do (Thanks Track !!) but nothing. Not even drowsy. I got up, I laid back down, I got up, I laid back down. I became even more heavy with exhaustion than before....
