So I didn't make the first time....

Alright. I admit it. I totally fell off the wagon. Actually, the wagon turned around and ran me over. I have friends on the wagon. They're hollering at me to get back on. They're holding out their hands, trying to help me. What do I do? I just lay there. Wallowing in my own self pity. Using the fat of my arm as a pillow. I tell myself I'm comfortable. I know it's a lie but it works. At least for now. Not as much as before though. I know I failed. I'm ready to try again.

Isn't that what life's about? Failing and then getting back up, dusting yourself off, and trying again? Or is that just me?

Christmas is not about what present you give or receive. It isn't about how much money you have to spend. It's about family. Friends. Love. Which is a darn good thing because I have no money for any of that present stuff. I do, however, have a lot of love to pass around and hugs to share.

The boys and I are hoping for a lot of snow in the next few days. We are so ready to go sledding!!! I love it! And, it's great exercise walking up the hill 50 bazillion times. Anyone is welcome to join us sledding. All I ask is that you actually sled ;-) None of that sitting in your car crap. You know who you are ;-)

I'm glad he has my nose! I want him to look like me :) Hehe.

I hear you on the present stuff. Hugs and high fives mean just as much :)

And as for people sitting in cars while others sled, I really don't know what you're talking about.

I glanced down to the thing I have to type in to prove I'm a human and it's drosa. Doesn't he play for the Cubs?

Oh and yes, I do think that's what life is all about.

I really do.

I'm totally against people who sit in their cars. But who does that? Really? :) I'm game! Call me! I have snow pants and boots and a coat and gloves and a hat. However, I lack a sled. Charity?

I'll help you back on the wagon if you need me. Heck, let's buy streamers and paint and decorate it so it's more fun to be on. How about it?

Can't wait for dinner tonight! <3

Everybody loves Tracy hugs so screw that present crap! :)

And I'm with Kayla... who seriously goes sledding and sits in their vehicle?? Pssh...

I'll take one of your hugs any day of the week and you know lately that I could really use them.

Hopefully this year you go sledding on a day I don't have to work cuz I want to go.

On a side note, I'm really impressed with that little bit of Cubs knowledge Kayla threw out there :)

I totally want to go sledding :) And you can do it! I'll try doing it with you this time! Me and the scale are going rounds right now, I don't like what it is telling me.

You CAN do it.

I love you!
