What's on my Mind

I promised myself I would write in this blog more like I used to write in my original blog years ago when I first started blogging. So far I feel like I'm not quite sticking to that deal. Almost. I have managed to sit down and put something in here more than once a week usually. Still, as someone trying to get back into writing, I expect more from myself.

I think the problem is a lack of things to say that I feel will be interesting to anyone. Well, I will just have to write about whatever is on my mind, and if it bores people to sleep then they probably needed a nap anyway and I've done them some good one way or another.

Christmas is what's on my mind today. Last year by this time I had ordered most of my gifts for people. This year I don't even have the first clue of the first thing to get for the first person on my list. I don't even have a list of people I want to give gifts for that matter. Hell I don't even know what I want for myself.

I watched Santa Clause 3 earlier, hoping to capture the holiday spirit, at least enough to give this year's gifts more thought. I put in a little thought but I haven't come up with more than a few small things I wouldn't mind getting as gifts. I still don't have any ideas for my family. And I still don't feel very Christmas-y.

Maybe it would help if it didn't feel like summer outside today.

The only thought I have given this is that I don't have any money this year fro gifts. This is ironic because we do just fine but honestly our very new mortgage has me in over my head.

We had a snow storm here the other day. That day I took photos for our annual Christmas card, finished the annual photo calendar project and submitted it for processing...waaaay in advance of last year's last minute efforts which didn't arrive in time for Christmas. :P I even looked at some gift ideas for the boys for Christmas. And it's still October! (who IS this woman and where did Becky go?) Maybe you just need a little snowstorm to get you motivated too. LOL
