It has come & gone in a flash

Another christmas has come & gone. It just seems like yesterday they were putting out the holiday decorations in the stores & we were starting to prepare for the hurricanes. Now we are preparing to close out the year of 2004 & welcome 2005. Where are these years going so fast.

Creeping up on christmas

It is now 5 days left until christmas. I of course spent a little too much money on other items that I should have not bought. I was expecting to get a gift card from work for Wal-mart but things are tight there so we were not able to get them. Oh the frustration. I feel bad purchasing the other items now.

The thought of christmas

Well it is only 13 days until we open presents. Mom's jewelry box mirror still have not arrived. I went Wednesday to JCPenny's to purchase her 2 pair of flannel pajamas. Got them home & noticed she was wearing the miss-matched set that makes my skin crawl, so she ended up with one pair early. I want to purchase her the OC season 1 DVD set & the coffee maker she wants. If I run out of money or don't get the yearly walmart GC I will just get the coffee maker. We purchased Daniel a Leapfrog activity thing with 2 books to help him with this reading & talking. We are still undecided on what to get Cory & Tracy. I have not fiquired what I am going to get my father & carolyn. I bought him a cookbook for diabetics. I am going to look for his kabuta hat & them maybe a Gift card for somewhere.

The outside of the house is mostly decorated. Gary (Our not so handy handyman) did not correctly hook up the outlet in the lightpole so that those lights do not light up yet. The tree is up & lite, we still have not put the decorations on it.

Friday was I.V. Grace's 5th birthday. I was fixing her Birthday cupcake & she stole the wrapper & ate it. Boy has she been whinny & snippy over the last 2 days. I guess she is PMSing.

Oh this house thing is a mess

Well I am not sure where we are going with this. The house my mom wants the guys has totally overpriced it. So now she looking elsewhere at houses. I really like the development & want to move in there. I like the house we are origionally looking at. I like the gated community. I like the house she wants but this Stubborn Northern transplant thinks he can turn a huge buck from this house in a development that is not there yet. I want to move somewhere soon or I am putting up the gosh darn christmas decorations. If there is no offer by Sunday morning I am putting up the damn tree & out side decorations... Sorry about the vent
