New Years Eve!!

Can you believe today is the last day of 2009!?  In a way (even though I do not wish my life away) I am glad to see 2009 go...2010 has to be a less stressful year!! Of course that is what I say every year...does it seem to you that the older you get the more complicated life gets; I always thought it was the other way around. I guess this is one of the wisdom things you acquire as the years pass.

Tonight is the BLUE MOON , (you saw me standin alone...without a dream in my heart...without a love of my own..) How fitting for it to be the second moon of the month and coming as the decade turns...a portent of the wonders to come in the next decade.

The snow continues to fall this morning, yesterday we had a little break from it, but there is, falling so gently as I look out the kitchen window in the predawn hours. 

So do I try to make resolutions this year?  I guess I will at least list a few promises I hope I can keep in the coming year:
1  Practice the attitude of gratitude

2  Get my creative room put together
3  Develop and implement business idea and plan

4  Stop smoking
5  Create something every day

Well an ambitious plan...I hope to be successful. There are many more things I intend to do this  year, but I don't want to overload the list!!!

Happy New Year and Auld Lang Syne!

Snowy Tuesday

Tuesday I look out my snow covered window all I see is a vista of white,,,as far as my eyes can see the fields and driveways are mounds of untouched snow.  It is beautiful!! But somehow I have to try to get out to take my sister (who has Alzheimer's) to a doctor appointment. And she lives 40 minutes away from me.  Plus I have come down with the cold, cough and sore throat that has been making its way everywhere this winter. So I have a dilemma...what do I do? Life is never easy, even the smallest things require one to wrestle with decisions...
And I haven't been to see Mom since Christmas day, so a trip is necessary for her sake today or tomorrow too. And all I really want to do is curl up on the couch and sleep.
I uploaded my christmas pictures and am thinking about scrapbook pages of my girls and of the grandchildren. I gave away a lot of my stash of cards for Christmas presents too, so my supply needs to be replenished also.  There is where I really want to be today...lost in the creative world of my paper, pens, glue, embellishments and pictures.

Merry Christmas to all!!

Merry Christmas to everyone...after a very busy day of driving(again!!) I am finally home and able to relax a bit.  Dinner with my girls was wonderful...makes me remember how much I enjoy their company. 
Went to see Mama at the hospital-took Lana and Stephanie-and Mama surely does smile when she sees Lana-Lana smiles back and Mama's love for her special daughter comes shining through. It does my heart good to see them together-both of them with their problems and yet love speaks loudest there.
Not much else to say...I guess we will be going to Carlisle to see the grandchildren tomorrow-if I couldjust say to Miles you go by yourself I would.  But I probably won't do that-even though I am always on the outside looking in (not my grandchildren by blood)  I still do love them a lot.
God bless

Merry Christmas Eve!

What a day Yesterday! I got a phone call at 9 am saying the doctor was ready to transfer mom to an acute care facility!!There went my holiday shopping plans. She is 1 1/2 hrs away now-so we spent the day taking care of all that had to be was so was so hard to take her and watch er try to reconcile to being far from us...she was asking for us to bring her things from home...and my heart was breaking
Thank God that my Miles stayed by my side all day...he was a was all I wanted for Christmas-his support for that day.
So in the midst of all this craziness, we found the grandchildren each a special present-a step stool for Spencer9(at the Hardwood Mall) and a Nativity globe music box for Camryn(at the hospital gift shop!!)
We are going to pick up Lana and travel to my daughter Aimee's for Christmas Eve dinner-Miles says he's not eating all day because if she is as good a cook as me he will want to chow down on a lot of food!!
A Blessed Christmas to all...God Bless us everyone!

Tuesday afternoon

I am typing in blue since I am having a blue Christmas...Mama was sad cause she said everyone is asking her what shes getting for I don't know if maybe she was dreaming this, but I had to remind her what Christmas is really all about and when I come on Christmas we will sing happy birthday to Jesus.  
Another day and no shopping...I hope tomorrow I will get the few things that I planned to pick up...not much spirit in me but I must craft table has kept me sane through the last few months...and sometimes I can't even sit there, my mind won't free itself of worry. 
More tomorrow

It's Tuesday morning...

I am up and at it at 4am...husband off to work and me off to hospital...maybe I will get some Christmas shopping done today-have daughters and grandchildren to think of...After the holidays I will spend some time setting up my blog with pictures, cards etc.
The kitties say hi and Meowy Christmas to all!!

second day of blogging

So here it is 4 days till Christmas-I think I'll write a story called "The Year Christmas Passed Me By" I promise to start adding my cards to the site as soon as I figure out how to do it!! I spent 2+ hours at the hospital today and my mother just slept-then when I got home I heard from the social worker that she was very sad-so I called and spoke to her and she said she missed me-so my trip was useless because she was sleeping the whole time-from now on I will make sure she is awake and knows I am there. I felt terrible.
more later.....
