Christmas 2012

Merry Christmas!

Do you ever get the after-Christmas blues?  I usually do.  That blue feeling sets in Christmas afternoon.  I feel let down.  Not because I didn't enjoy Christmas, but probably because it's over.  BUT... this year... NO BLUES!  I feel great!

I had to work through Friday the 21st, which for teachers, is pretty late.  That meant I only had 3 days to prepare for Christmas after getting out of school.  I didn't have all my shopping done, either, which is rare.  I still had one gift and a couple of gift cards to buy, so it wasn't bad.  But I definitely avoided the mall!  I don't like the mall, in case I've never mentioned it before, particularly when it's crowded.

On Christmas Eve, we went to my brother-in-law's for dinner.  It was nice.  Christmas morning, I got up early - not to put presents and stockings out, which I had actually done about 1:30 AM - but to feed the goat!  The goat lives at the district barn which is about a 12 miles round trip.  Not bad.  But it was early.  Merry Christmas, son!  That is your best gift, right?

Can you spot the special "present" under the tree?  When I got home, I woke everyone up.  We opened our presents then got ready to go to my mother-and-father-in-law's house for the annual Christmas breakfast.  We stayed there a couple of hours, then I came home and cooked.  We didn't have the traditional Christmas dinner this year, either.  Neither my mom or my husband particularly like ham or turkey, so we had a Mexican feast including homemade beef and cheese enchiladas, my special recipe charro beans, refried beans, Mexican rice, queso blanco (hot and mild), and guacamole.  Plus tons of desserts!  I'll have to tell you about the oreo balls later!

My sister and her family and my mom came over.  We had a delicious lunch then opened presents and visited for a while.  Then we took my mom to the barn to meet the goat.  Have you met Kuzco?  By the time I got home, it was dinner time,  but I just needed to sit and chill for a while.  Finally, when I got hungry, I had some of the best chicken and dumplings made especially for me from scratch by my mom.  I took a long, hot bath with my new bath stuff from Bath Junkie and read my book for a long time.

The blues didn't have time to set in!  And I couldn't be happier about that.  What a great holiday!

Aloha Friday

Kailani seems to be taking a break from personal posts right now, but I have a burning question for you.  It's a simple question, right in line with the nature of the Aloha Friday theme.  Please answer in comments, and maybe post a question on your blog.

My favorite Christmas song is the instrumental version of Sleigh Ride.  It never fails to put me in a cheerful mood!

What is your favorite Christmas (or holiday) song?

Taking care of the goat...

I love it when people ask me what I've been doing lately, and among the normal responses like shopping, working, etc., I get to say, "Taking care of the goat."  They usually do a double-take!  Last week, my boss's response was, "Wait, did you just say 'goat'?"  I had to giggle!

Yes, I help my son take care of a goat, which he named Kuzco.  The goat is an FFA project, and it's a lot of work!  We are city people.  I did live in a smallish town growing up, which has grown considerably since, but we never had livestock.  We had a dog.  At one time we had two cats.  And my sister had a pet rabbit... for a while.  But livestock?  I know nothing about livestock!  But I'm learning.

I'm finding that it's actually quite interesting.  It's both fun and hard work.  Our poor Kuzco got sick and lost ten pounds.  He would hardly eat anything for several weeks.  While the other goats were gaining, he just kept losing.  He finally got treated for an upper respiratory infection (yes, even goats get them), and we've had to give him everything from ensure, to electrolytes,to  pro-biotics, and vitamin B.  He's FINALLY got his appetite back and starting to gain a little weight now.  He's got some catching up to do!  Can you imagine a goat not wanting to eat?  They eat everything!  If a goat isn't eating, something's wrong.

Anyway, so while we are working to get him to gain weight and fill out, we also have to train him.  He has to run to develop strong muscles in his back legs.  The goats always eat with their front feet propped on the fence so their back legs get stronger, but he needs more.  He also walks.  He gets dewormed twice a month, and he's taking supplements along with his food (developed for livestock, not human supplements).  He gets a bath about twice a month.  And my son had to train him to walk correctly in the ring and how to set him up for the judge, and how to present himself to the judge - the showmanship aspect of it.  Who knew so much went into this?  I guess I always thought you just feed them and they're ready to go.  Not so.

Our livestock show is at the end of January, so we don't have much time now.  I hope we can get Kuzco caught up enough to look good next to the other goats instead of scrawny like he was when he was sick.  If he doesn't do well at the show, my heart will break, but it's going to break anyway when we have to see him go.  I kinda like that goat!

I am so proud of my nephew.  He is graduating from Texas A&M University a whole semester early!  And... better yet, he has a job!  He graduates tomorow with a Bachelor of Science in Physchology.  So proud of him!  Whoop!

Silly Love Songs

Aloha!  It's Friday, time to take it easy.  Here's what's been on my mind lately...

Funny how a certain song evokes a special or significant memory.

For instance, when I hear "Silly Love Songs" by Paul McCartney, I think of summer camp the year I finally got a top bunk in the cabin.  I remember that my parents never let me listen to it because they didn't like it.  And I remember that year at summer camp, there was a really mean girl in my cabin.

The song "Crazy on You" by Heart reminds me of the Texas Renaissance Festival the October weekend I went with my older sister and her friend.  Actually, a lot of Heart songs remind me of that time.  I think my sister liked to listen to that entire album.

"Lido Shuffle" by Boz Skaggs reminds me of visiting my grandparents in Canyon Lake, specifically swimming in their neighborhood pool.  I can't explain it, but it does.

And "The Boys are Back in Town" by Thin Lizzy reminds me of visiting San Antonio as a young child.

What song or songs remind you
of something you remember fondly?

One Stop Shopping Online - Stress... Solved!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

With the holidays upon us, we’re all stressed, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be getting any better for about another 4 or 5 weeks.  There is shopping to do, menus to plan, decorating the house, invitations, Christmas cards, holiday meals to prepare (and the grocery shopping that goes with it), and so much more!  And oh, yes!  All those holiday gifts I buy need to be wrapped.    It just takes so much time to get everything done!

Not only that, but all the parties and get-togethers that I have to attend – well, I don’t HAVE to, but I want to – take time out of my busy schedule as well.  I have to have the proper attire, be at a certain place at a certain time with a certain type of hostess or exchange gift, not to mention food items I need to take with me.

I found a solution!  It’s called  This website is designed to give us back the time we need to do the things we have to do or just spend extra quality time with our families.  It’s a very unique concept, almost like having your own personal shopper for all of your holiday shopping

What can do for you?  Lots!  For example, one of my least favorite things to do is go to the grocery store.  I don’t mind putting it up when we get home, and I don’t mind preparing meals, but the actual task of getting in the car, driving to the grocery store, loading my cart, paying, and driving home makes me nuts! will do all that for me!  They offer full service, same-day grocery delivery of your  items.  .  After my order is placed, purchases the items at local stores and deliver it right to my door on MY time schedule!  They can deliver as late as 9 PM, and they also deliver on weekends.

What a lifesaver!  I can order everything from food, to pet supplies, household goods, baby care items, and a lot more.  There are over 25 categories of items from which to choose.  I can get most of my Christmas shopping done this way as well as purchasing food for holiday menus.  They offer appliances, tools, toys and games, furniture, music, storage items, beauty items, health and wellness items, prescriptions, pet care, televisions, and even jewelry and watches.  There is something for everyone on my list, including the cat!  They also offer purchase protection, product repair, and installation.  This isn’t an ordinary shopping website!

I’ve got my eye on this Diamonesse Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Cross Pendant for my oldest daughter.  The prices is definitely competitive at 79.99.   I also want to get the Keurig mini-brewer for my mom.  Again, it’s got a competitive price plus a rebate! I really CAN get all of my shopping done with one site!  Stress solved!

You may be asking… how?  Simple.  Sign up online.  Check your zip code to see if delivery is available in your area, and you’re good to go.  They offer 6 month and one year memberships, but BONUS!  They offer a 30 day FREE trial.  And FREE is always good!  I hope you’ll go check out right now.

Aloha Friday

Friday is the day they take it easy in Hawaii, home of our lovely Aloha Host, Kailani.  I'll ask a simple question, and you can leave your answer in comments.  Come join us for some Aloha Fun!

Thanksgiving 2012 is over now, and it's time to get ready for the Christmas season, but before I do that, my question is...

Do you call the "bread stuff that accompanies the turkey"
dressing or stuffing,
and in what region do you live?

Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to take a minute to say how grateful I am to have this blog as a creative outlet, and to say thank you to those of you who check in with me.  I hope you're enjoying a Thanksgiving holiday filled with lots of comfort food, family, friends, and football!

And just wondering... is anyone doing any black Friday shopping?  I mean, at a real store?  I'm sticking to the Internet this year.  I don't plan on buying any electronics, which is where the really good deals seem to be, and I know there will be sales from now until Christmas, and I don't feel like fighting the crowds.  There was a crazy 18 year old girl who started camping out at our local Best Buy on Tuesday afternoon.  She's still there!  I think she'll have been there 60 hours by the time they open.

I'm spending the day with my mom. Thankful she's still around, though there were a couple of times in the past few years we thought we were going to lose her.  Missing my dad, as usual, but thankful I got to spend time here on Earth with him.  Can't wait to see him again in Heaven!  I wonder if people ever really "get over" the loss of a parent, particularly when it's completely unexpected.  I would dare say they don't.  But, focusing on my many blessings:  health, happiness, family (husband, kids, mom, sister and her family, in-laws, etc.), God's grace and love, a home, food to eat, a job, freedom, and so many more things to be thankful for! 

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Friday Fill-ins

I haven't done Friday Fill-ins for a while.  Tonight seems like the perfect opportunity.  It's still Friday where I am, too.

1. One time, I went a whole day without eating.  But only once!  LOL
  2. The song "Love Train" is something that makes me smile.
3. Seven words I love: compassion, envision, flummoxed, vintage, "You were right."  That's 7 total, right?  Hahahah.
4. I have rarely seen snow; I don't think I could live where it snows regularly.
5. I looked out the window today and saw that my son's truck wasn't parked at the curb.  Where is he?
  6. My husband and I actually like one of the same TV shows, and that's saying something!  We rarely enjoy watching the same things on TV.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a long, hot bath and a good book, tomorrow my plans include watching my daughter perform at our last football game of the season and maybe taking in a Rockets game, and Sunday, I want to relax, but I have to catch up on some work!

Come join Friday Fill-ins!

13 Random True Things About Me…

1. IMHO, it is too hot to be November! We’ll have a high in the 80’s today, but we were down in the 40’s two days ago. This back-and-forth Texas weather drives me crazy!

2. I love Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup ice cream! Creamy peanut butter flavored ice cream with Reese’s minis in it. Yum!

3. I’m so excited that I am taking my son on his first college visit to the University of Texas at San Antonio next week.

4. I’m also super-excited that I will get to see my daughter’s color guard team (and the band, of course) perform at state finals.

5. I’m not excited about having to go to court today.

6. I have started my Christmas shopping already.

7. My students just finished reading nonfiction about the Titanic. They loved it. Did you know that last April was the 100th anniversary of its sinking?

8. I’m looking forward to watching Madagascar 3 on DVD this weekend.

9. I voted two days ago. It’s the first time I have ever voted early.

10. I’m enjoying helping my son raise his FFA goat. And I’m so proud of the way he gets up early every morning to go to the barn to take care of it.

11. I like to buy my chicken breasts from Schwan’s. Theirs are so juicy and tender and have almost no fat unlike the ones at the grocery store.

12. I did a computer lesson with my students last week called “Survivor-Titanic Style.” It was fun!

13. Speaking of Survivor, I don’t watch that show, The Amazing Race, So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing with the Stars, The Voice, American Idol, or really any of that type reality show. I just can’t get interested in it. I’m probably the only female on the planet that doesn’t watch at least one of those shows!

Happy November!

Meet Kuzco

I haven't blogged in a couple of weeks, I think.  It seems like a long time.  So much has been happening here, both good and bad.  But I don't want to focus on the bad.  Suffice it to say, it's been pretty dang depressing.  So,  here's something happy!

Meet Kuzco!
He's a little stubborn right now.  Understatement.    But, we can fix that!

Kuzco is my son's FFA project for the next four months. (He named him; I didn't.)

 He got his market goat six days ago.  Our district does a kind of lottery system.  They bring in enough goats for every student that wants to show one plus a few extras.  The students draw numbers, and that is the order in which they get to go in the arena and select their goat.  My son was number 27 out of 35, not where I wish he could have been.  There were only 12 goats left when it was his turn.  We had studied information about how to select a goat, but when you only have 12 to choose from instead of 30, you kind of get what you get.  But, that being said, he can make this a great show goat if he works at it.

We have never had a goat in our life.  He lives at the district barn, and my son has to go up there at least twice a day every day.  I knew he would have to feed him twice a day, but I had no idea what else went into raising a goat successfully.  Feeding, cleaning, yes.  But also bathing, shearing, de-worming, trimming their hooves, exercising, and teaching the goat the showmanship aspects of the project.  My son is very enthusiastic  right now.  I sure hope it lasts! Last year's rabbit project didn't go so well, so I'm hoping for a more favorable outcome this year.  Wish us luck!

Win Big with Kmart Layaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Kmart_Logo_B&W.jpg (3 documents, 3 total pages)When I was a little girl, one of the biggest events of any shopping season, whether back-to-school or holiday, was using Kmart layaway.  It was great because we couldn't always afford the expenses all at one time, but with layaway, you can spread the payments out over time.  We ended up with some great things this way.  One of my favorite childhood gifts was a pair of roller skates from Kmart.

Guess what?  Kmart still has layaway, and it'sfree layaway!  With the season of giving just around the corner, I plan to take advantage of it.  To coincide with the holiday shopping season, they have launchedKmart's Big Layaway Giveaway.  They will be giving away great prizes.  There is one winner at EVERY store EVERY week until November 17, 2012.  Visit a participating Kmart store for official rules, or click here.

A few weeks ago, I started shopping for holiday giftsBLG_Logo_Horizontal.jpg (3 documents, 3 total pages)Photobucket I was eyeing this Canon cameraKmart Free Layaway Grid 09_12.jpgWalmart and Best Buy don't have layaway, so I wasn't able to get it that day.  Now, I can go to Kmart and put it on layaway.

Always Remember

I will never forget where I was, how I felt, and what I was thinking when those twin towers fell 11 years ago.  I wrote about it here and here.

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Thursday Thirteen

I'm linking up with Thursday Thirteen this week.

Here are 13 things that I find DISTURBING!

1. Toddlers and Tiaras on TLC. I watched it one time but I see the commercials all the time. What these parents (both moms and dads) put their children through (both boys and girls) borders on cruel and unusual punishment.

2. To piggy back off number 1, Honey Boo Boo disturbs me greatly. She will be a great source of work for a counselor in the not too distant future, I’m sure. I will NOT watch her show!

3. Justin Bieber. He sings like a girl, and he says the stupidest things in interviews. (Honey Boo Boo doesn't like him, either!)

4. How The Black Swan can be considered rated R with that female on female oral sex scene in it.

5. Misspelled words on “professional” websites. I’m not perfect, but I should have been an editor.

6. Black bras under white shirts.

7. People who “go commando” on a regular basis. Underwear was invented for a reason.

8. Movies about demonic possession.

9. The misuse of the pronoun “I.” Quick lesson… would you say, “Give this to I?” No, because “I” is not used after a preposition. I have heard friends, co-workers, and even news casters say, “Between you and I” numerous times, and it irks me! “Me” is the correct pronoun in this situation! This is between “I” and you. LOL!

10. Sixth graders who have seen The Hangover.  Worse yet, sixth graders who say it is their favorite movie.

11. On that same note, people who take elementary age kids to see movies that are rated PG-13 or R.

12. The Sarah McLachlan animal cruelty commercial.

13. My own dreams sometimes disturb me.

What disturbs you?

We Want to Know Wednesday

Mamarazzi and Crazymama host We Want to Know Wednesday.  This week, we are once again doing a "Would You Rather" (abbreviated to WYR).  Come join the fun!

{one} WYR...Never be able to look in the mirror again or always get dressed in total darkness?

I would rather get dressed in total darkness, because I could always look in the mirror later to see how I looked.

{two} WYR...Receive $50 a day for the rest of your life or $50,000 right here and now?

Give me the $50K right here and now. If I only live to be 70, I would barely break even with $50 a day. If I have $50K, I can invest some of it so it will multiply over time, and I will have more money in the long run.

{three} WYR...Have extreme narcolepsy or have a bad case of tourette's?

Wow. That’s a hard one. I’d have to say extreme narcolepsy, though. It’s so totally the opposite of how I am now since I have a hard time sleeping and falling asleep. Besides, I don’t want to have tics and shout out obscenities at random times. Neither one would be fun!

{four} WYR...Be able to rewind 24 hrs 3 times a year or consciously control your dreams?

I don’t want to rewind my life. I like moving forward. And face it, even if you could have a “do over,” chances are it wouldn’t be the way you wanted it to be. So, it would be nice to be able to control my dreams, especially since I have some very strange dreams quite frequently.

{five} WYR...Be fluent in every language around the world or be the best in the world in a category of your choosing?

I have no idea what I’d want to be the best at doing. Maybe the best brain surgeon? Nah. People would want me to work all the time, and I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the money I would make. The best Nascar driver? Nah, I don’t want to drive in circles for a living. How about the best dancer? No. I’d get tired of people asking me to dance all the time. I’m already the best mom, so it can’t be that, either. I guess I’d choose to be fluent in every language around the world. That would be pretty cool, and I bet I could make a great salary interpreting and translating. Yeah. That's the ticket!

Thursday Thirteen

Hello Thursday Thirteeners!  I am really going to miss summer!  Yes, I will like the cooler weather, but I'd still rather it be summer so I can go on vacation, sleep late, and READ!

I've read thirteen books since school released on June 3rd.  Here they are with the most recent books first.

1. In the Still of the Night by Ann Rule
2. The Cold Kiss by John Rector
3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
4. The Narrows by Michael Connelly
5. The Last Surgeon by Michael Palmer
6. Cause of Death by Patricia Cornwell
7. Lost Light by Michael Connelly
8. Heat Rises by Richard Castle
9. Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich
10. 11th Hour by James Patterson
11. Taken by Robert Crais
12. Don’t Look Twice by Andrew Gross
13. City of Bones by Michael Connelly

I'm not sure which was my very favorite book, but I did try three new authors:  John Rector, Gillian Flynn, and Michael Palmer, and I was impressed.  I'd love to hear any book reccommendations you might have in the mystery/suspense/crime genre.  Have a great weekend!

Tackle it Tuesday

I'm linking up today with 5 Minutes for Mom for Tackle it Tuesday... Making housework bloggable.

I have been meaning to straighten my laundry room for a while now.  It used to be so neat and organized!  (Please don't mind the different color washer and dryer.  That is my husband's doing.)  Now, on to the important part.  Here are some "before pictures."
My laundry room is so small, almost like a closet.  I organized all of the beach towels and extra towels on the left side as well as a plastic container with blankets and extra pillows.  The right side has a stack for top sheets (which my children refuse to use), full-size sheets, and twin sheets.  There is a rack below that for my dry cleaning towel, the dryer rack, and pillowcases.  There is a shelf above the washer for detergent and stain remover.  On the left, there is also a bar for hanging clothes that need to air dry.  I dusted the windowsill, cleaned the floor, and cleaned the appliances. And the baskets fit nicely on the dryer now.  I'm happy with it.
Link up with 5 Minutes for Mom and share your tackles!
