I've finally decided.

So many times these past few months I've sat down to write a blog post, but for some reason or other, it never got published.

A few times I've sat down to delete my blog, then decided against it.

I love blogging too much to do that.

I guess I gotta catch up with life.

Then I can resume the pure enjoyment I get from the blog world.

Until then, I have facebook and would love to stay in touch. Shoot me an email so I can add ya. =)

Work, work, work.

It just gets in the way of blogging.
And cooking.
And cleaning. lol.

The good thing about working the extra hours? Besides being coughed on by swine-flu infected peeps all night picking up their Tamiflu?

The extra moo-lah for Christmas.

That's what I keep telling myself.


Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm off to work and then New Moon after- yay!!

Woo-hoo: Getting geared up and excited for Christmas. My little guy is eyeing the Christmas tree's in the stores. He wants the 'white one with blue ornaments' he told me last night in Joann Fabrics. He'll just have to settle for our green one, though.

Whimsical: Silhouettes!

Wisdom: Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people. -Barbara Bush

Weakness: Bath & Body products that smell like sweet baked goods.

Worry: That I *accidentally* signed up to work in the evening on Black Friday! Eek!

Web: Just Something I Made. If you haven't been to Cathe's blog yet, go see her. She's one uber-talented graphics lady. And, she has a ton of fabulous freebies!

Wish: That we all continue to avoid the flu bug. I use hand sanitizer constantly at work, worried that I'll bring those icky germs home with me to my family. Thus far, we've all been healthy.

Wondering: When do you put up your Christmas tree?

I put mine up the day after Thanksgiving, but I really want to put it up now.
Hubby says, 'don't.
I say, 'why not?'
Hubby says, 'it's too early.'

Is it really too early when you have paper ornaments done, ready to blog about and no where to hang them? Know what I mean? ;D

Have a wonderful week blog friends!

Autumn Daybreak

Autumn Daybreak

Cold wind of autumn, blowing loud
At dawn, a fortnight overdue,
Jostling the doors, and tearing through
My bedroom to rejoin the cloud,
I know—for I can hear the hiss
And scrape of leaves along the floor—
How may boughs, lashed bare by this,
Will rake the cluttered sky once more.
Tardy, and somewhat south of east,
The sun will rise at length, made known
More by the meagre light increased
Than by a disk in splendour shown;
When, having but to turn my head,
Through the stripped maple I shall see,
Bleak and remembered, patched with red,
The hill all summer hid from me.

-Edna St. Vincent Millay

Aloha Friday! Black Friday?

Woot-woot! It's Aloha Friday! My Aloha Friday question is:

Are you planning to shop on Black Friday this year??

Me? Absolutely. It kicks off the Christmas season for me. I love coming home with all those presents to wrap, and place under the tree that we put up that night. Ahh, can't wait!

What about you? Are you as excited as I am??

Psst... Target Black Friday Ad is up!! =)

Head on over to An Island Life for more Aloha Friday questions.

Have a wonderful weekend!

People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.
Abraham Lincoln

We've had some change happening here in the K house.

Some I'm happy about.

My work. I've found a happier place within my same company. It was a big decision and I had to put my big girl panties to get myself to that place. I'm a people-pleaser by nature, but this time I had to do for me. I'm proud of myself.

Some change- not so much.

Hubby's new work schedule. It's been a serious monkey wrench. The gears of our family schedules have started to work again. Slowly, but surely.

Our near future holds some stressful decision-making.

But for now...

I'm making up my mind to be nothing but happy.
