what the HECK has that girl been doing with her time???

12 hours of sewing
11 days of coughing
10 foot tall tree falling
9 yards of fabric
8 schools to visit
7 trips to Target
6 hours of film editing
5 kids at home
4 different doctors
3 dismissed ideas for a funny blog post
2 boxes of Kleenex
and a partridge in a pear tree....

sorry all - Have a wonderful Merry Christmas, remember what it's all about and trust that one of my New Year's Resolutions is to be here often enough that people STOP Un-Following Me!!!

sunday shorts OR just how much therapy are my kids going to need?

I was raised in a theatrical family. We're not WAY weird... really. As a matter of fact I think the only way to tell is that we all pronounce our words as if we've just taken the voice and diction class that when I finally DID take in college I had explanations for WHY I said certain words differently than most of the population...

an orange sounds more like Our - anj
envelope? to me it's an ON-velope

(sorry, we're not discussing tomato/tomahto, OR potato/potahto - I'm not THAT weird)

the biggest one that gets noticed (because really, how often am I talking about oranges and envelopes?) is when I say Aunt (not ant)... some of my nieces and nephews will say Aunt the "proper" way when referring to me - and just say Aunt (ant) when referring to the other aunts in the family...

Why this whole set-up... why is this funny at all? Well, my sweet little M said her prayers last night and blessed members of the family... Grandmas, Grandpas, Mom, Dad, Cousins, Uncles, Aunts, and Ants...

or maybe she's just showing concern for all those little buggers as they begin to freeze?

My shoes are two sizes too small?

I think I relate to the Grinch now... Thanks to a conversation I had with my boss this morning I no longer think of him as just the sourpuss that lived above Who-ville.

The Grinch wants to stop Christmas from Coming... yeah, I'm TOTALLY on board with that - I'm not ready at ALL!

The noise was stressing out the Grinch - ditto.

The Grinch snuck into all the houses and stole the presents, trees, who-hash, etc. - me, I think I just need to sneak away to a few stores and I'll pay for whatever I come out of there with... and hope the kids like it?

The Grinch lied to a little girl just because she got out of bed on Christmas Eve... ummm... I'm not above that either.

of course... in the end the Grinch got into the spirit and there was the miraculous moment when all the whos loved their Christmas anyway. I'm counting on that happening for me too... really!
