Hustle & Bustle


I know it's a bit early, but I've decided that I do not like the hustle & bustle of the holidays. It's very hard when you're on your own - and have to buy all Christmas presents by yourself...meaning, I have no one to drive me, park, open my door, carry my packages, pay for my packages, and drive me home...but I'm not complaining about my independence at all! I just need a butler!

I was at Bellevue Square on Saturday and it was crowded. It was also very fun. It's a fun mall and has most everything I need. I have resolved, however, that if I can't order it online, you're not getting it!

I am proud to say that I'm almost done - I have my middle sister (who has not commented on my blog in awhile so I'm not sure she's getting anything), my mom and two adorable PK's that I know...they are easy though - they love everything!

Remember, we are entering the most wonderful time of the year! It starts this Sunday with our Harvest Service and meal - I don't do well with that so could use some prayer for my spirit to be helped along...as I want to reach out but I have issues! I am proud of our church for doing this and hope it becomes a ministry that serves a long-term need.

Here we go!

Anything golf related or cooking related would be most welcome! I am, to my great dismay, not quite as far ahead as you. But, I have purchased your gift! And I've purchased lots of stocking stuffers.

I too was shocked by how crowded the mall was on Saturday...and I have purchased no presents yet. I'm often shopping at the last minute, but it hit me on Saturday when you said that Christmas was only 6 weeks away! That seems crazy!

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.

Twitter...see what I'm doing!
