Crazy Christmas Wishes!

It's that time again! Time to bore you with my Crazy Christmas Wish List...
Here goes...
1. I would like all of our vehicles to work properly and not threaten to die at any given moment.
2. I wish for a house that cleans itself.
3. And laundry that not only washes and dries itself, but also folds and puts away.
4. I wish to be home to write full time again.
5. And I want a cabin in the woods with a fireplace, a big deck, and a huge kitchen.
6. A bank account that has more money than I could spend in a lifetime.
7. To be the size I want to be without effort. (ha!)
8. A beach house! (Hey, why not? It's a crazy list!)
9. A college scholarship for K3.
10. To have a liquor cabinet that never needs replenishing! lol
There's more, but that's enough for now! Ha!

I Have No Idea What Day It Is...

Time is going by way too fast!
There is much to do and while we are whittling away at the list, it's still overwhelming.
The shopping is started. The grandboy is done. The kids still at home are started. The kids not at home - there's a plan for that. That Man - also started. Others - well...
We're working on our plan for Eve and Day. And Birthday. (Gah! My baby girl will be 15!)
I do, however, seem to have a decent amount of holiday spirit this year. That's a good thing, though I don't have the time or the energy to get stuff done at this point. Ha!
2 weeks before the big day...
How does that happen? How do we go from zero to crunch time so fast?
It always gets done. That's what I keep reminding myself...
It's snowing here. Just a little. I love it.
I am writing. Editing and new writing. Both at the same time. It's working, so no complaints.
And... That's all for now...

Feel Good Friday - The Post Thanksgiving Edition

Yay Friday! Here's the list:
1. The day going by rather quickly at the day job. Busy and crazy, but fast is good.
2. Chilling at home tonight. I have a million things to catch up on, though 3/4's won't get done at all. I'm making progress on my list though.
3. Sleeping in tomorrow. It's been a while! I'm so excited!
4. Weekend plans.
5. Only two more days of the 50/50 challenge we're doing in my writing group. No less than 50 words a day for 50 days. I'm happy to have made it through! I've been writing and I'll continue, but I need to switch gears and work on something for Liquid Silver now. I know what I'm working on. I just need to chop it up and get it edited.
6. That Man doing the shopping and cooking dinner. Now he's cleaning up. Well, putting away dinner. The kid will do the dishes.
7. Getting a welcome email from my new publisher! So exciting!
8. Not running out of gas on my way home.
9. Christmas parties coming up. We have two in one day next weekend.
10. All of the stuff coming up! I actually listened to Christmas music on my way home from work! After the summer, I realized it's about family and fun and being with the people you love. Not about presents or spending money.
That's all for now.

Happy Turkey Day!

I hope your day was filled with awesomeness and thanks!
We had a phenomenal day with the family! (Most of the family. K2 and J did their thing with J's family this year. We get them for Christmas, though! But it's K2's birthday today! And we just really missed them! I gave birth to K2 hours before Thanksgiving. I spent Thanksgiving day in the hospital and my mom brought me food because there was no way I was eating hospital food for Thanksgiving. I came home the next day and we had a proper Thanksgiving that weekend.) We had dinner at my sister's this year. It was chaos and craziness and a lot of fun and good food! We really missed Dad, too! A hawk flew over after dinner and we all knew Dad was watching over us.
Things that were awesome about today:
1. Hanging out with Baby B! He's so funny and so stinking cute! On the way home, he kept yelling "Pappy" and then he would yell in a really deep voice. He was also yelling for his Gigi (my mom), who was in the front seat. It was cute! (What was cuter was when we pulled into Mom's to pick up some corn and lima beans she'd forgotten on the way there and he started yelling for his Gigi.)
2. Playing "Cards Against Humanity" with the kids. They're not kids. I know. 99% of them are 18 or over. Which is good, because the game is so wrong, but so freaking funny... It's tag line is something like "a game for horrible people" - which in-itself is hysterical!
3. Thanksgiving Eve. Too much fun. Too much great music and chaos! Or not enough... Not sure about that. We were in bed at a decent time (which means... not too late or not too early), didn't drink too much, laughed our butts off...
(this list is in no cohesive order)
4. Well... Now it's Christmas. I'm ready. Bring it.
5. My sister has the best people in her life. I'm grateful for that. I'm so thankful she has R and his sister and her husband. I'm also thankful that R understands that she's still healing after losing T. R's a good guy. She deserves him and I'm so thankful she's happy.
6. I am very thankful for my sister-in-law's lemon bars and that she gave me the recipe!
7. And for the fact that the diaper bag was found...
8. And for being warm in my house. And for my bed.
9. One work day before the weekend. That's something to be thankful for, too.
10. My husband and kids... They're all awesome!
(Remember I said this list was in no cohesive order!)
... In other news...
Our "boys" need to be fixed asap! Charles is spraying. GROSS!! He's so rude about it, too! The fixing must happen like right now... I can't deal with it.
That is all...
