This Is Not A Resolution, It's My Life.

Posted 01-02-2011 at 09:22 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I was going to bed an hour ago, and I have to much on my mind at this point. I go back to the real world tomorrow, kicking and screaming, now that my Christmas vacation is over. I love spending so much time with my wife and kids, it is the best thing in the world to see them grow, but as is always the case with the end of a vacation, I struggle with losing that time that I just spent with them. I work the opposite schedule from my wife, she leaves at 7am, I leave midday and don't get home until 9:30-10:30pm, I see her for less than an hour a day during the week. I was thinking today that my older boy JP, I see less than my wife, he is at school for most of the day, and in bed when I get home at night, the time he is home at the same time with me I am getting ready for the day, making breakfast for my boys, and loading him on the bus. I feel so guilty, because I spend so much time with LC now, when JP was 2, I was home by 5 every night, we would hang out and play, I would take him across...

My Christmas With Nat King Cole

Posted 01-01-2011 at 07:22 PM by caninemom3

It has often been said that it is not good to dwell too much in the past. Since all of my fondest memories exist in the past that is where I spend a lot of my time, especially at Christmas time. Memories are a funny thing. It takes only a certain mood, a certain fragrance, a certain set of weather conditions or a certain song or piece of music to resurrect memories especially Christmas memories.

All it takes to send me to Christmas past is to hear the first few bars of The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole. It doesn't matter where I am or what I am doing. Once I hear the first few notes of this beautiful song and the incomparable vocals of Nat King Cole I am immediately 7 years old again.

For me there seems to be a sort of a magic presence in this song. Once it begins I can almost see myself, 7 years old, very shy and with my mom, Suzy, in our kitchen. We are baking Chistmas cookies. My dad is in the living room with Christmas music playing from the TV/Stereo/Radio...

A Christmas Story

I thought this was such a nice story. I hope everyone enjoys xo

[B]It was only five days before Christmas. The spirit of the season hadn't yet caught up with me, even though cars packed the parking lot of our Houston area Target Shopping Center. Inside the store, it was worse.[/B]

[B]Shopping carts and last minute shoppers jammed the aisles. Why did I [/B][B]come today? I wondered. My feet ached almost as much as my head. [/B][B]My [/B][B]list contained names of several people who claimed they wanted nothing, [/B]
[B]but I knew their feelings would be hurt if I didn't buy them something. [/B]

[B]Buying for someone who had everything and deploring the high cost of [/B][B]items, I considered gift-buying anything but fun.[/B]

[B]Hurriedly, I filled my shopping cart with last minute items and [/B][B]proceeded to the long checkout lines. I picked the shortest but it [/B][B]looked as if it would mean at least a 20 minute wait.[/B]...
