My husband is the world’s “biggest” kid when it comes to Christmas and unfortunately I am the world’s second “biggest” kid. We have been struggling for weeks now with our kids Christmas gifts. They have been purchased and are hidden but we want to give them their presents NOW. When they were smaller it wasn’t as big of an issue but now that they are older they know when Christmas is and they also know we struggle with this. Not to be outdone by Santa, the best gifts of the year come from us and they are well aware of that. The tradition is supposed to be that they open gifts from us on Christmas Eve night and then in the morning open their Santa gifts. But with ten days to go I don’t think my husband and I will be able to hold out. Last week we decided that on the 17th we would do it but last night it got upgraded to the 16th. I’m just not sure how long we will be able to hold out this year, every year it gets harder and harder. I didn’t know being a parent would be so
When you are having a baby, getting married, graduating or having a book published you have a date, the beautiful date your milestone will be accomplished, a date to circle on the calendar and to plan for. Now that I have a due date, 2-27-2012, I need to start planning what that day will bring for me. Many authors now have “release parties” and some are quite extravagant. Some do book signings at local bookstores and others have “parties” where they sell copies of their books. I am still undecided at this point. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Should I have a big party?
Last week I said I wanted Rachael Crow to get voted off the show and she did! It was really sad too when she collapsed on the stage and sobbed through the interview. I felt bad about “wishing her away” but I think that was the best thing that could have happened. Tonight we will see who is next to go. I’m hoping its Chris Rene or Marcus Canty. I want Josh Krajcik to win.
I’m very new to Twitter but starting posting blogs yesterday. My friend Jane (in England) has been forcing “tweets” out of me every day. She sends me a “tweet” and I “tweet” back. Twitter frightens me. It reminds me of Finding Nemo when they were on that super waterway and everything was rapidly flowing past. It’s like that except its fast moving words and people on the super highway. I want to take the leap and jump in but I’m afraid of where it will take me to. I’m afraid I will run out of breath or even drown. So for now I’ll just keep on swimming!
Have a good day passengers : )
