Hello again, Tuesday. If you're looking for a positive, super-happy, Christmasy post, this is not it. Click your back button now.
I'm starting with a random pet peeve... Incorrect spelling and/or grammar.
I'm on a beautiful blog reading wonderful stories and getting great ideas, and I see a grammatical error, which is odd, because the author did not make this same error in several other areas. Can you spot the problem?
Once your done shopping for others,
It seems small, but it makes me want to click away quickly and forget everything the author has written. I realize everyone makes mistakes, but if you have a blog with tons of affiliate links and paid content, I don't expect obvious mistakes. If you can suggest your readers shop at Williams Sonoma, Sur Le Table, and Pottery Barn, which is much more upscale than its name implies, then you should have a good editor or editorial program. Or, perhaps I am too critical.
I'm just in a "mood" lately. I am feeling used, neglected, taken advantage of, and just plain tired. Life is hard sometimes. I have cried more in 24 hours than I have in the last five years put together.
One of my daughters and her husband were here this past weekend. We had a fun "Christmas" on Sunday since she will not be here on Christmas day. I thought I was prepared for her not to be here, but my son just told me he is leaving in two days to spend Christmas with his dad since he doesn't see him every day. Christmas will feel extra lonely without either of them here. Luckily, the grandbaby will be here.
I absolutely love our Christmas tree this year even though the lights are burned out in two sections, and even though it's a little lopsided with a few presents gone from underneath already. My cat is very interested in it, but she's not like she was as a kitten when she actually climbed the whole tree. And speaking of cats... here come some funnies. This should make you smile! I did!

And last, but not least...
