    To All My Friends!

    Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and Feliz Navidad!

    and a Happy EVERYTHING to everybody!!!


    I wish you all love, peace and happiness this holiday season. You guys have helped me thru some real ups and downs this year. When I tell my friends about you, some think I am addicted to my computer! I don't care! Couldn't have made it without you all. Even when we agree to disagree, you've help me reaffirm my beliefs stand up and remind me how we are all different.

    yet very much the same...

    best wishes,

    Master Pre-K :love:

    Merry Christmas to one and all!!!

    We were listening to the radio today (after delivering Christmas goodies to the police station and fire house.) "Happy Christmas" by John Lennon came on. One line in particular struck me:
    "Let's hope it's a good one, without any fear."

    That really encompasses a LOT of good wishes-- no financial fears, health fears, safety fears, job fears, relationship fears. It's probably one of the most generous, all-encompassing wishes one can make.

    So it's what I wish for each of you.

    I just saw the neatest thing last night. We were driving around looking at Chrismtas lights when we came upon a house that had its lights hooked up to a radio station. You turn on the radio station and the lights react to the music. It was SO neat. I happened to have my camera on me and took three movie videos of it. If I figure out how, I'll put the video on here. It was REALLY neat.

    I hope everyone enjoys their day tomorrow, or whenever you celebrate or have already celebrated the holidays. This site has also helped keep me positive after a not so good end to my year. But I know I can always come here to vent and to get some amazing advice and support from all of you.

    Happy Holidays to one and all!!!:hugs:

    Let me join in the kind greetings! To all of you with young ones waking you up early to assemble your toys, there is truly peace in my world of teenagers. I will have to wake them up soon so we can visit family if they don't get out of bed! I remember when they were up before 6am.

    Brian was up till after 2 am, simply twitching with excitement, swearing that he heard Santa in the livingroom (a distint possibliity!)

    Then the girls had us all up by 6:30.

    But the excitement was worth every bit of the tiredness and crankiness that will follow later.

    Just remember, Christmas doesn't end with the 25th. We have at least another week of relaxed festivities to enjoy yet! ;)

    what are your New Year's plans??

    I may go to church on New Year's Eve, but I don't like leaving out too early while they are still shooting!

    Wish they would extend the program and let us stay a little later, and have breakfast too!

    Shooting?? I live in the sticks (IMO), and I don't remember hearing shooting last year.....

    My fiance and I are having a party. Last year the party was pretty big, but I think we're looking at about 15 people this year. I love having a big party with friends. I make lots of food. We all stay up late, and everyone spends the night, so we don't need to worry about anyone out on the roads.

    Friends of mine used to do that: rules of the house were that if you didn't leave by about 8 pm, you didn't leave till midmorning. That's pretty civilized.

    Yeah, I plan to get a 2bd/2ba for my next condo, just for that reason!

    My daughter has a death wish. She is a storm chaser and thrill seeker...has no fear whatsoever!! She will watch the news, see a crisis in a making, and then smile and say.."Ok, I'm going out Mom!"

    sigh! :eek:hmy:

    She's too big for me to say, "Stay in this house!" But if I had a second bd/ba, I know I could coax her into waiting a few hours, and hopefully, she would be soo comfy, she would change her mind and just spend the night!

    I make lots of appetizers for my parties. This year, I'm making pizza melts, mini pigs in a blanket, cheese dip, fiesta dip, cookies, and maybe a spinach dip. As long as there is enough food and drink to go around, people don't usually have a problem staying the night. :) I love playing hostess! :D

    I generally watch TV and go to bed after everyone has finished shooting off fireworks. Personally, I think NYE is just about the most overrated holiday tied with Valentines Day. The stores have all the V-Day stuff out already. Ugh!
