Tuesday Humdrum

Just to let you know I am still alive and moving!

Crocheting Christmas Gifts, knitting loom hats for charity, working often as a Teacher Assistant Sub (and getting requests to return).

My youngest sister Danna, had the weekend in the hospital with a blood clot in her lower right leg.
She’s home today, glad to take a shower, and still on blood-thinner drugs.  My phone bill will spread over about 3 pages, I would think.

The end of the semester, with Finals Week, looms at the University.
The guys in my house are um, reeling with anticipation.

Gotta Go.  Rudolph is On!

~~love and Huggs, Diane

update 10:20pm
One of the girls asked me if I have my Christmas tree up yet.
When I told her that I don’t put up decorations until school is out, she said that’s too late!
In this case, ISU is done the 14th of December, and public school the 21st….still 4 whole days before the actual Birthday of celebration.

One year, the boys helped bring out the artificial tree on Christmas Eve and we put it away on New Year’s Eve, but I did have the manger scene up until the 6th of January for Epiphany.

I cain’t say that I am an actual Scrooge about holidays, but I sure don’t want to get caught up all over again in the ~~need for things~~ to help me stay happy.

What I’m more concerned about now is the shuffling of pictures and prints and the writing of the family newsletter.
I didn’t send any out last year, and I’ve been getting complaints ever since.  It is somewhat disconcerting to be sitting in 90o weather in July and have a sister get sassy about promises broken.

So, other than watching television specials and buying yarn in red-green-white colors, I’m not quite into the holiday season.

I sure hope the sun will still rise tomorrow.
Although the weatherman says snow flurries.

Nitey-night.  I’m at the high school tomorrow.  Hopefully no tutoring fraction problems in Math class.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Darn I missed it–Oh well I have seen it several times so I will survive!

    The last few years, since the death of both my parents within 3 months of one another, I haven’t really gotten in the Christmas spirit. But this year, with a new grandbaby here to help celebrate, I’m feeling more of the Christmas spirit than I have in several years.

    And I’m 44 years old but I still love the Christmas shows every year! Rudolph, Frosty, The Grinch, Charlie Brown’s Christmas Special and all the old shows are my favorites. It’s not Christmas until I’ve seen my Christmas shows!

    Have a good week, Diane. 😉

    Love and hugs,

    Diane

    LOL, Diane, I’ll help tutor (teach) the fractions!

    LOL At least I am not the only one with a semi-scrooge approach. But it isn’t scrooge really, just a wish to not get caught up in the stuff, stuff, stuff. I’m not even a practising Christian but I think it important to remember why this celebration is here.
