I indulge today and did some after Christmas shopping. It is so hard to buy and have to stored this stuff for another year. Then is equally hard not to shop for some of the stuff we wanted but we could not afford to pay full price.
I sold a couple of big pieces and all the stuff is sitting on the floor. No hopes of painting anything since is a little drizzly and cold. I have no idea how to merchandise without big pieces of furniture. I think that if I attempt to paint I might just make the biggest mess. I might have to get on my truck and go shopping, buy just anything to fill in that spot. I took all the Santas down but I'm going to keep the snowmen, skates, sleds and snow items long after New Year. Winter time is always hard for me since I can't paint as much and I don't keep replacements. It was upper 70's last week and I didn't take advantage of it. Oh well, we will live.
My husband came home and told me the company he works for have run out of money. One more thing to pray for, that is how I roll. We have no control over life, but we can control how we live. So no fear, God is in control.
I will be hosting New Years eve party, big party, about 30 some people. We are looking forward to be able to do firecrackers. We used to live in the city and we used to sneak out and do it anyway, until last year, we got caught and we got a warning and we were told to put them away, us an every single neighbor that was out there doing it . Shame, shame. This year we are in the country, so weather permit we are going to be firing a lot. I love the Holidays, everything about it...I lied , almost everything. My clothes are really tight from all the food. That I don't dig. I have boxes of everything that I have not even visited since we moved. The master closet is not organized. I still have bags full of everyday clothes. No telling were my winter clothes are and no stamina to dig. So I might be wearing the same outfit every other day, don't pity me, I have clothes, just don't want to look for them. Enough of this ramblings, I think I have reveal more stuff about me in this post and all of it not positive (illegal firecrackers ignition). Soo, I'm going to say goodbye for today and probably until next year. I just realized my Juju just ate part of my tennis shoes, bad dog! Have a blessed New Year celebration, Marta.
PS Dear Donna, if you read this one give me a call, I can't find my book with all my numbers.
