Christmas cards and Chemo

nice title huh?  well that's my life these days.. This is the first year I have not designed every part of the boys Xmas picture cards.. I just didn't have the joy in me this year.. so I used all the fantastic freebies that are being offered all over the web..   great stuff.. I've been blog hopping on a regular basis now.  it fills some time slots.. that starting a project just wouldn't fit into.. so that is great!!  Tomorrow is another round of Chemo.. Finally got MIL healthy enough to stand it..
Anyone else kinda in the depressed mood this year.. so many people out of work.. and money is tight for everyone.. I don't know if we will have the inlaws here for Xmas or not.. so if not.. I think we are going to have just a big ol family time kinda holiday.. hubby is off this year.. (unless they allow OT and they call him in)  so I'm hoping we just veg around the house.. and play games and do stuff as a family.. I'm going to put a NO WORLD OF WARCRAFT ban on the house.. well.. I should say I'm going to TRY.. at least for one entire day.. if not a few.. so we can really play together.. the boys wont be kids much longer.. Logan is 10 and Josh is 9.. the double digits of age are here.. so we gotta get in the play now.. before we, the parents become so dumb and lame.. that our children wouldn't be caught dead with us..lol
I wish you all .. a very merry Xmas.. and this year.. lets all try and go a smidgen overboard on the loving of our families.. even if its just for a small time.. it counts!!

Hiya hunny!

Things are tight all over...hubby is going to be off for 3 weeks this year...first time in 14 years he's been laid off...
We're staying home and cookin' a turkey, staying in our jammies and just spending time together as a family...I need to find my joy for designing so maybe a break will refresh me..

Sending huge hugs your way!!

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
