Im such a procrastinator too.. the boys parites are TODAY.. so of course last night is when I did up the goodie bags! half the reason is cuz I didnt wanna..lol but im THAT MOM that thinks a goodie bag has to be issued for every occasion possible.. and the other half of the reason I waited was money is tight.. and I couldnt find anything to put in the blasted things! how sad is that??? I had bought a thing of playdoh at Sams after halloween.. 66 of the minis for 1.50.. I mean.. how is that a bad thing!??!?! so those went in.. minus the black ones.. they also just recently I guess.. found a pallet of halloween candy left over.. well it was the GOOD KINd.. ya know.. the 15lb bags of HERSHEY things.. for 3 bucks.. so I got 2 of those.. some for the boys lunches.. some for PMS..lol and the rest for the goodie bags.. I found some small candy canes and some christmassy suckers.. and that was IT! ive been looking for a month.. and there was NOTHING for goodie bags this year.. I saw some pencils at thanksgiving time.. but thought .. they will be there when I need them.. HA.. poor kids .. they are going to open those bags and go.. UHHH.. what gives? lol its just candy and a playdoh.. oh well.. better then nothing.. I normally make the teacher gifts too.. not this year.. no time with MIL and no brain waves.. so they got good ol store bought.. 50 bags done!

snagged from a scrappin group I belong to..
Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
Or a Cricut, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him, "Hi Santa, " I said
"You know....good little girls should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa, and now I've got caught.
But I was just so excited To see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work.
He shook his head quickly, And left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear.
"You've got enough crap, I'll see you next year!"
'bout sums it up for my life! lol

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!!

Who knew that changing your blog could be a all day thing? well.. yes.. those of you that do it all the time.. know this stuff.. well I've never used a template or used already made things.. OH NO!!! that would be far tooooo easy.. I have to make my own.. and pull out all my hair!! I'm not 100% satisfied with the outcome.. but frankly.. I'm sick of looking at it!!! and I will be at the hospital all day tomorrow with MIL while she gets a blood transfusion. they say its about a 8 hour thing.. AND we have to leave the house by 630AM.. fun fun.. huh?? lol I cant go to bed just yet.. as she gets meds at 2 am.. and once its this late (12:12AM) its tooo late to go to bed to wake up.. to go to bed.. to wake up.. so I will just stay up.. maybe I can find a spot on the floor tomorrow and catch a ZZZ or 3?
SIDE NOTE.. thank you to those of you who have contacted me with support.. means the world.. great big squishy hugs to you ladies!
