Christmas/Twelfth Night Thoughts  
It's been a rough few months - between my personal life and work exploding, I have come to the resolution that I am just not sweating Christmas/Yule/Twelfth Night plans this year. For some of you, I sent cards. For some of you, I have prezzies. But if something did not speak to me, I didn't spend a ton of time trying to find something just to check your name off the list. So, if you do not get a goodie in the mail or at Yule or Twelfth Night, please know it is not because I don't love you - I just didn't have the energy to expend that way this year. As a consolation prize, see me at Yule for smooches and Scotch, smooches and hugs will have to do at Twelfth Night, due to the damnable dry site! :)~

Happy Holidays everyone!

Take care of yourself and your friends will understand. We all have limits. You have given your all for years, needing some time/effort for you is more than justified.

Thanks. I figured folks would understand, but getting everyone *just* the right thing has been an aim for so many years, it seemed worth mentioning that the little boxes were not necessarily going out this year so someone would not feel slighted.

You are awesome, and your continued friendship is the best gift you can ever give.

May 2011 be calmer, and bring you all you seek along a smoother path.

You are, a usual, just too sweet... But what in the world are you doing still up at this hour?!?

Wrapping Tyson's presents while he's asleep :p
And finishing Xmas and thank-you cards.

That, and had a big afternoon nap, so I wasn't tired. The ability to sleep in as much as I want also padded the decision to stay up.

Smooches and hugs are good!

I lurves my foster-Laurel Mom. Everyone needs time to replenish their energies. If you constantly give your all to everyone else, you won't have anything left for yourself. Your real friends will understand and be there for you. You need to take some time for yourself. We'll be here for you and help to give you the space you need (like running interference when you ask for it). :)

I may not be built like a linebacker, but I can cheerfully trip up anyone with the best of them. ;)

I get prezzies every time I see you in good food and just general niceness. Don't worry so much about physical presents... it's not like you're a meanie all year and decide you have to make up for it at Christmas! :P

it's not like you're a meanie...

Damn. And I try so hard... ;)

I'm the same way - sometimes you find the perfect gift for someone... or not.

Hugs are great gifts !!!
