Bring it on, 2009

Another year, come and gone.  They seem to be zipping by so fast now. It’s it funny how when you’re young, the year just seems to draaaaaag by, but the older you get, the faster it seems to pass? I really need to get my hiney in gear this year with a lot of stuff.  […]

Holiday recovery mode

Whew. That’s all done with… now to recover over the weekend and go back to the grind on Monday. I did quite a bit of baking this week. Cookies all day Tuesday, and a “deep dish pumpkin pie” last night while we were putting the Kiddo’s “Santa” toys together.  I discovered that I need one […]

Time to go wrap presents

All the shopping is done, now I just need to wrap the presents that aren’t the Kiddo’s so I don’t have to worry about rushing to get all that done before bed.  So I’m about to go do that now, and then after my cookie baking marathon yesterday, I need to pick out a bunch […]

Early Christmas at my house

For my husband and I, anyway.  Both of our “big gifts” arrived today, and since mine was ungainly large, we went ahead and “gave” each other our gifts.

Almost done shopping and upcoming holiday frenzy

I did most of my shopping online at Amazon this weekend, so most of it should be showing up starting tomorrow hopefully.  I only have a few things left to buy for my MIL and GMIL (grandmother-in-law) that Amazon was either out of stock or just didn’t even sell.  For those things I may actually […]

ISO: My Christmas Spirit

I’m not sure why, but I just can’t seem to get into the Christmas spirit this season.  Neither of us has an ax looming over our jobs, so no worries there.  We have a bunch of stuff we posted on craigslist and got a lot of inquiries, so there is some extra potential Christmas money […]

Holiday weekend does not equal a restful weekend

I was essentially off work for five days for Thanksgiving weekend, starting with Wednesday and ending Sunday.  But it was by no means restful.  I think the slowest days  I had were Wednesday and Sunday. Wednesday was originally supposed to be a day for me to work from home so I could attend a special […]

Amazon’s “Customers Vote” program

Every year Amazon has this neat program where they list three different products that, if it receives enough votes, will be available for certain selected buyers to purchase at a GREAT discount price (sometimes like 50% off).  This year they have 18 different products to vote on in six rounds.  If you vote, you get […]

Holiday shopping for the Hybrid lover

My husband and I have wanted a hybrid for a while now, but it just hasn’t been in the cars, I mean cards. We are only making payments on one of our two cars, but it is almost $300 a month, and there is still at least three years left on it I think.  We’ve […]

Have you started your holiday shopping?

I sure haven’t.  *eek!* I have a general idea of what I may be getting for hubby and the Kiddo, but that is about it.  Oh, and maybe for my parents too, since there is a company that is giving employees at my workplace a pretty good discount, and they have stuff my parents (especially […]
