You'd Better Watch Out!

I thought we'd start out philosophical this morning... maybe analyze a popular Christmas song like "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". I mean, really... what exactly are we watching out for??? And why can't we cry if we feel like it??? Pouting??? Surely that's a woman's prerogative - right?

And "he sees you when you're sleeping"... what kind of creepy red-suited guy IS Santa. Sheesh!

Ha! Enough of my silly mood... it's raining here in Northeast Tennessee this morning and in the thirties... snow all around us. We may get some tonight.

I'm having one of those days where I have a million things to get done, and I'm having a hard time prioritizing. I woke up with my brain scattered. Some people would say that's normal, but don't believe them :)

1) I'm finishing off the last of some promo mailings for my January book. 2) My vacuum cleaner is on the fritz and needs to go to the shop. 3) I need to look at my Christmas list and make a plan to finish shopping. 4) My dh is home sick and is disturbing my usual peace and quiet. 5) I have to start wrapping pretty soon, or I'll never get it all done. 6) Dh wants to go to a movie later today and keeps asking me to check the times online. 7) We have a small roof leak and are trying to decide if we have to re-roof the whole house (gulp). 8) And the list goes on...

Of course, I would much rather hang out online with you guys, and pretend that it's VERY important to get this blog done. :)

I'm drawing a name for my contest winner tomorrow. Since I didn't send this contest out to everyone on my website contact list, there are far fewer entries this time, so those of you who have put your name in the pot have pretty good odds. Anyone else who wants to enter needs to do so tomorrow before noon.

All in all, it's a Monday... what can I say? We all have to survive them, and hope Tuesday comes along soon!

Stay warm, and don't lose the holiday spirit. I have decided to smile at all the grumpy people I see this week. It can't hurt...

Talk to you later,

LMBO Janice,

That was a great blog! You are right, why can't we cry? I cry all the time at this time of the year. I am such a scrooge - LOL.

Thank you for the great laugh - it is much appreciated.

I agree. It was rough putting up my tree saturday I kept finding ornaments with either Dusty's name or picture. Like the song says
"It's my party and I will cry if I want to"

Thanks for the smiles Janice.

I made up a list at home of all that I need to get done it depressed me. LOL

Janice, it's IMPORTANT that this blog keeps us entertained. Now that this IMPORTANT task has been done, you can go and do your wrapping.

Jamie K said...

Janice, thanks for he laughs. This time of year especially, they are very important. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a to do list that's a mile long. Hope we both make progress on our lists today!

Sorry I am so late getting to the blog, but it seems that things keep coming up to interfer with what I want to get done........**sigh** but then that is what they call real life.......Anyway I love your Idea of "It's My Party and I will Cry If I want to." I really, really do not like this time of the year.

Oh Janice you are hilarious! I couldnt blog yesterday so I'm doing it now. I like that you said "Its my party and I cry if I want to" Yeah! Sometimes we need to cry just to let go of our anxiety. Hope your day improves, although I know that when hubby is at home is never the same. Dont get me wrong, I love my DH but he really step on my nerves when I'm trying to acomplish something and he keeps interrupting! They are like little kids but worst! LOL! Have a great day!
