Am i going to be tired tommorrow!!

Forgot to take my Rozerm to sleep. I typed up some more flickr captions on Go see the adventures of my C-mas bears. I posted pic's of my kids Christmas presents. 1st time I have made so many projects for each one. Laura,my youngest I have been making her biggest presents on her b-days. Being on limited budget I'm tying to s/book presents w/ pic's of the kids and to make them something.
I also made 2 new Year Cards that go in the mail this week.I want to make my snowman cards for my mail route I do each month for my church. Jennie has given me new s/man clear stamps plus note cars,brads etc.
I cleaned up my room and filed C-mas stuff away yesterday. Allen's distress papers are still sitting on the floor. so much for getting him more pages for New Years. This project is dragging its feet. I just can't get motivate to do it. Cards are more fun to make,they're so spontaneous.
Ate the last piece of blueberry pie. Haven't made 1 of these in years. It was beary good!! Next need to make some pumpkin custard to eat.
Need to get a quilt batting in Jan. to quilt my lap quilt by machine. I already made the top w/fabric squaes in Oct.
I don't type well or for very long. I thought I try blogging so I could write what I'm thinking. I don't get out much. I made some good friends on Flickr last year. It has helped me from going crazy. I realy love reading the bear blogs. I never could afford some of the bears,but looking is free.I also got some s/book sites to look for ideas. Now I have to set priories on how much time I want to spend reading blogs vs working in my room etc. too much eye candy out there
New Year's will be quiet. Not the same w/o the kids. It was big deal for them to stay up late when younger. We used to have chips ,dip and soda. This was a treat for them since I didn't buy junk food on a regular basis. Then when we moved to Texas,we started having Forest's Laura's friends over. We don't allow drinking,smoking,premartial sex or drugs in our home. This way we knew our kids friends and we knew they were safe. I sometimes in bed before midnight. Allen and I will probably watch a movie. Jan gave us Without a Trace tome. Allen got the full collection of Hal Roach ,Little Rascals. Got to go crash into bed with a hotpack.

Believe it or not,here I'm come

My kids would gasp that their mother is enterting into cyperspace writing a blog. Beware I don't know what I'm doing. I'm the last of the hold-outs. Why do you think I'm the Texan Maverick.
I can't believe it I actually got our c-mas cards down. George(pic on on Flickr,you can see him) We started it on Oct. Our camera is broke,so Jan brought her camera out with her. Then the computor died for over 2 weeks. Then Allen decided he didn't like how the crop job went. So we bought a d/able camera.I had to be the one in the picture not Allen I don't take good pic's anymore. The 3rd time I had to wash my hair.curl it.( I had been sick, energy is a problem for me in the winter),put make-on and change my clothes. I sat in my recliner so both dogs could get into my lap. I slap my thigh and George flies into the cage. He stayed thereALL NIGHT!!!! man was I ticked off, here I'm with all this makeup on,and no picture.
The orginal idea a year ago was doing cards w/the caption Santa Paws Both dogs are from Animal Rescue League here in El Paso and are my lap buddies.
I don't really like my pose,but George is so hard to get a good pic. of Anyway I'm surprised Allen helped me wrap it up last night. I had him tape in the pic's w/ Scotch tape. He's a stictker for detail. Besides he get them tape into the frames the right direction. Plus he he even licked the envelopes.I did address them all. I was having to get the glue @the last minute out since I forgot to glue the inside greetings that I had made. S/how my brain forgot I was supposed to use these special M/C-mas greetings that I had stamped and embossed. I even talked Allen into a trip out to get special embossing powder and a special pad for detailed stamps. I had made up a pile of them because of the delay in the Santa Paws cards they were being used up
Now if I can make it out to eat@ Furrs with Allen this year,I'll be happy. Last year I was plowed into my recliner w/unknown heart problems. A heart doc let my b.p. go up every night to160/100 for 3 weeks. Dr.Q, my lung doc saved my life. I'm now on O-2 24 hrs. because of this He also found I have sleep apnea .My O-2 levels @ night drooped down to 84 which is low. I feel alot of gratitude to the Lord for this extra year. He watched over when all the doc's messed up.
I didn't like the 3 trips to E.R.,the chest pain that feels like somebody is squeezing and stamping on your heart .I don't like Morphine it blew me away,I lost all concept of time. I don't even know how I got upstairs on the heart floor from E.R.
On my frig I have posted a saying, BELIEVE,translated to me believe in the miracle of C-mas. Oh,Santa is coming out of the chimmney. I do believe in Santa and Jesus Christ B-day.
I didn't want to take the magic of Christmas away from my kids. I also want them to know the true meaning of Christmas which is the birth of the Savior. My kids are now adults, evidently I did my job juggling okay. They mentioned C-mas time as a time of family memmories not any presents they got etc.
Supper is calling. Glograbear
