I was just looking over my previous posts and except for the precious post about my new grandson (29 is really too young to be a grandmother - work with me here), I have only been a copy/paste blogger of late. Well, I did post the snazzy picture of my husband in his uniform all decked out.

I have so much going on, and yet not much going on. You know what I mean? (A lot of busyness...)
(I love the picture of Santa praying to baby Jesus. I have a beautiful figurine and ornament like this. I think I even have a bell!)

Let me just say that I have done not ONE BIT of Christmas shopping. Do you see that - NO CHRISTMAS shopping has been done at my house! You probably wonder why - well financial is one reason and my girls don't know what they want!!!!!! James said he doesn't want anything (that's what he always says) and I don't know what my mom wants. (We don't buy for extended family anymore. Both of my grandmothers are in their mid-80's and are constantly giving stuff away. Why do they want MORE stuff??) We buy for James' youngest son and his mom (the ex-wife, not James' mom - she died when he was 6). Actually we go to her house for Christmas Eve. She has a big shindig (I typed "sindig" at first - I hope that's not a sign of things to come lol.)

I didn't participate in BooMama's tour of homes because our tree isn't up! The girls were going to decorate it this year (after calling me Scrooge) and yet the half assembled tree has sat since Thanksgiving. Who are the lazy ones now??

I was so happy I got my Secret Santa and my Siesta Fiesta stuff out yesterday. I know I'm late, but I always am...Sorry ladies! Mary, I mailed you a book too! I opted not to send Christmas cards this year. If you're on my facebook friends' list, then I sent you some holiday flair!!

Well, I guess that's all I have for now. I hope all is well with you. Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Hey, Cathy! I have done almost no shopping, too! Christmas slackers, unite! Ha. BooMama's tour of homes explains why hardly anyone visited my blog today. See, I'm out of the loop there, too. Love that verse. It's not one you see quoted a lot.

  2. Hey Linda! The last time I looked at Boo's Mr. Linky, she had over 400 peeps signed up for the tour. I think someone said over 600 when she looked. I feel blessed when I have 1 person comment - I couldn't imagine over 600!

    My verse is one that was on a devotion last week. It practically jumped off the page at me. It combined all these verses I love into one. Isn't God funny like that?

    You haven't done shopping, but you had a great reason - you were working on your gingerbread stuff, party and table decorations. Me? I really have no good reason...(Let your daughter drive you...then you'll be REALLY quick!)

  3. I was number 580 and the last time I looked earlier today there were over 700 now at BooMamas. I've done a lot of shopping, but no Christmas cards. I even made some earlier this year, but haven't sent a one. I'll probably do a few, but I don't plan to send like I have in past years. Postage is too expensive and I'm too lazy, I guess!! lol

  4. Cathy a/k/a TCKK (don't want folks to know I talk to myself) at least you have decorated your house and stuff! I've done NOTHING! *sigh*

  5. Cathy,
    I was number 664 last night at about 11:00 p.m. There are more now LOL
    This is my first year to participate... it has been fun!

    Have a Merry Christmas... and don't worry about what doesn't get done.
    Sweet Blessings,
