3. Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

ATTENTION WINNERS (from today and yesterday) ...please email me ASAP your full name, the state you live in and the email address you'd like me to email the certificate to.
---------------

So, I should be posting more deals, lovely recipes, etc, etc, but I'm not. I'm up to my eyeballs in Christmas cheer and suffering from the last minute syndrome. It's horrible. They really should start to find a cure, I tell ya. The hubby has been working 10-14 hours a day 7 days a week for the past month on a huge project that kicked off today and will most likely be working until Christmas. If he gets called in ON Christmas, I'll have some words to share with his company. ;-)

Needless to say, blogging isn't on the front of my mind. Sorry. (Not that you're depending on it or anything...who do I think I am anyway???? sheesh) I will tempt you with a giveaway I'm doing when I come back...Awesome gadget that will make you a Smart Shopper! Ohhhh this is a good one...you'll be jealous if you don't win. ;-)

So, don't forget about me. Do come back when I come back...most likely right after New Years. Please have a WONDERFULLY FABULOUS Christmas and a safe and fun New Years!! Clink your glass for me when your cheers-ing all over the place!



Question of the Week
Tell me all about your Christmas, your week,
your New Years plans, etc.

Enjoy your blogland break! My Christmas week will consist of visiting my family and then heading to work. But on the 26th my stepkids come home for the holly-days until the 5th of Jan. We are super excited! For New Years we'll attend First Night here in SLC--ice skating, fireworks, xmas lights, hot cocoa, and more....

Ritch in Love said...

Oh! And Merry Christmas!

Oh, have a great holiday--don't worry about us! We're going to be taking it easy, having a wonderful holiday dinner (prepared by someone else! Yippee!!!), and then hitting a New Year's Eve party (also thrown by someone else--yippee!!!). The rest of the time will be spent loving and hugging my kids, with a little work thrown in for good measure.

Happy holidays!

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

Oh YAY! I won something! Whoo Hoo!!

Today is my 21st wedding anniversary so hubby & I will celebrate at a romantic Italian restaurant tonight.

Christmas Eve we will attend church service then go to my moms. We (hubby & Kids) go to Waffle House at midnight and enjoy a big breakfast.

Merry Christmas Melody! I have to work every other Christmas and this is my year to work. My kids will be here for a family celebration on Christmas Eve (Except Andy of course - still in Korea). After I get done working we will go to Bob's Mom and spend the evening with his family.
Thanks for the restaurants.com certificate! Enjoy your break.

Merry Christmas. My husband works Christmas Eve and Christmas this year so I feel your pain...

And our hope is that I won't go into labor either of those nights because they are at bare minimum for patrol. I shouldn't, but...

New Year's Eve, he has been called in to work... which I told him to accept since we won't be partying it up this year. Again... let's hope for a labor free New Year's.

Merry Christmas and New Years!

Shannon said...

Christmas Eve is spent with my family... we'll go to church then meet at my mom's for dinner and to open presents. The Christmas morning, the 4 of us (me, hubby and our two girls) open our presents. And of course see what Santa brought the girls. Then we head over to my MIL to spend the day with hubby's family.

We're not big partiers for New Year's. We've started going out to dinner with my husband's teo brothers and their families. Then we'll meet at one of our houses to spend the evening playing games while all the kids play together.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! The kids and I spend every Christmas Eve with my mom and her man then I take the kiddos to their dad's on Christmas day.

CrYsTAL said...

We are busy busy busy. last night we had Hubby's close family party, tonight we have hubby's grandma's party. Christmas day we are doing our Christmas, and then at 12 we are going to my parents house and opening gifts then we are going to my grandparents house to eat dinner and spend time with them. We have our work cut out for us! It's CRAZY!

A quiet week just enjoying the hubby and the boys. Yippeee!

Merry, Merry Christmas!!

Wanda said...

I am in Florida...we travelled here to help elderly parents move.
Yes....we spent the week moving old people into a new house. It's exhausting.
Much different Christmas that any we've ever had.
At least we are with family.

Cassie said...

Hi! I got my duffel bag yesterday, and I LOVE it! I mean I really, really LOVE it! It is WAY bigger, and WAY nicer than I could have imagined! I knew it would be great being from Lands End, but still pleasantly surprised! And PINK, WOO HOO! I put my snorkel gear in it straight away, and will now have to plan a trip!

Have a Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

Thank you so much!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!



My New Years Resolution is to loose 10 pounds of baby fat (and keep it off), read the Bible in a year, and... I cna't remember but I know I have more. Opps!

Mari said...

Just wanted you to know I've missed you. I think your break is done! :)

Eudea-Mamia said...

I'm wondering about you.

Take care whatever you're up too!!!!

Michelle said...

Ok now I'm starting to worry about you. Miss you! Hope your back soon.

Michelle said...

I thought it would be useful to share a few examples of where people have drawn a line under where they're at and decided to go after what they love. There are plenty of jobs in Chennai are available it depends upon aspires which profile or field they want to choose for making their career bright. All you need to do is get your parents or a friend to sit down with you and ask you the interview questions that are contained within this guide. I just finished this book and it has helped me during a rather difficult time in my life. It is usually one bedroom furnished accommodation going by the IRS standards so that housing allowance is tax free.
