thought I'd say it, but I'm actually managing to eek out
some Christmas! I got a really good run on e-bay,
so some of the things are at least on the way! I'm
his partner have bids in on two major projects. If
they get either bid, they will have steady work for over
a year! The bids are supposed to be awarded within
the next two weeks, so if you folks have any extra happy
energy going around, please aim it in my direction!!
It would be such a relief to not have to think about
money troubles for an entire year! I don't think I
can even imagine that. They have some smaller jobs
along the way to fill in the cracks, so that's a good
thing. It's all still patchworking together and I
still have two lilies on their way into blooming.
been such a holy time and I feel totally infused with
the happy, peaceful, joyful stuff. I'm fairly
intolerable to be around. :)~ I even found
Santa hats for my kids, so you'll be inundated with
pictures of that (I can make my own Christmas cards!
Whoo hoo!) and of the Great Candy/Cookie Making process
of 2003. The good thing about having grown up kids
is they decide THEY want to help with the Christmas
cooking, so I don't have to do it all. If I play
my cards right, I might get out of most of it (after 25
years!)! We're doing molasses popcorn balls,
divinity, chocolate fudge, peanut butter fudge, potato
candy, rice krispie candy, frosted sugar cookies (got to
soak the playdoh off the cookie cutters) and chocolate
was grocery day and everything I wanted was on sale,
which is always a great bonus.
another dream about pets not being fed, but this time it
was a little animal that looked like a furry tube with
the ends closed that belonged to Dylan. It was
already dead, but when he told me "Mr Wiggly" had died,
I realized he likely hadn't fed it and I hadn't been
micromanaging him. No phallic jokes or
has fallen into the ripening and rotting phase, so I
should likely get busy on it before Eric comes home and
implodes in dismay. He's so sensitive, that one.
around tomorrow, or at least that's the plan!
care, everyone and light up that life, OK? Go the
distance and do what you need to do to capture that
little spark of happy and let it glow.
