Christmas tree lights

I have only one question?


No, not the top one, nor the bottom one. ALWAYS the damn middle one. I refuse to try and track down the broke or loose bulb, I just throw another strand over the old dead one.
Soon, there will be fifteen strands overlapping each other....then it will be time to throw out the tree and start anew.

Things I'm thankful for.

This time of year it seems everyone has things they are thankful for. We should I think, be thankful for them all year, but it seems around the holidays we think and act on them more so than the rest of the year.

So, here we go.

1. I am thankful for my kids. All three of them. Most of the time, maybe two and three Fourths of them. But I do love them all. (don't listen to that oldest one. She's always had a stick up her butt.) lol.

2. I'm thankful for Jodie. She is my sister soul mate. I only had one brother and no other siblings. So, she is the sister I never had. If she had been my bio sister, we probably wouldn't get along as well. I'm thankful for meeting her all those years ago.

3. I'm thankful for my job. And most of the people I work with. Out of two hundred, I maybe don't get along with two of them. Not bad odds actually.

4. I am thankful for my quirkiness. All my little and not so little eccentricities. I know I'm nuts, but you guys love me anyhow. See, I am thankful for that too.

5. I am thankful for my spirit guides who put up with sooo much crap from me. I don't know why they haven't flown the coop long ago. Thank you guys for sticking around. You know I'm grateful for all your help.

6. And I'm so thankful for all you guys. Who knew you could make friends and meet people online, all those years ago when I bought my first computer and made my way to different places.

7. I am thankful for Hanson. My dogs, my cats. My life.

I truly am thankful for my being who I am. I like me. I do. And I like all you guys too.

my wish list

How is everyone?

Haven't talked in ages.

Have you gotten into the spirit of the season?

What season? depends on how you look at it.

It should be Thanksgiving...but, Christmas is knocking down the door. Soon, Thanksgiving won't even be an issue. Christmas will rule from Sept to January.

My wish list? do I have one? of course I do.

I have wishes for the world. For my happiness. For my greedy little self.

I wish for peace. I want no more hunger, no more hate.

I wish for my own place. My own little apartment where I can have peace of my own.

And the little greedy part of me wants...

A new computer chair. A comfy one with arms.

A new printer. A laser print. One that will print 10 thousand pages with one laser cartridge. (399.99) at Stables. lol.

An electric blanket. Full size. (I need a new one of these every year)

Dozens of gift cards to Borders. Always need new books.

Oh and Starbucks one would be nice too.

There are tons of other things I want. Things that unless some of you have won the lottery won't be sending my way.

A new car. A new house. You get the idea. Those BIG ticket items.

Well, off to work. We now are into working till after midnight each night.

The public sucks. But I chose retail . Why? oh why?

Writers block...in the middle.


Jodie mentioned the "missing" chapter in the comments the other day. And I'm sitting here staring blankly at the screen.
I've written a book. Well, almost a book. I have maybe three more chapters to write. I've written the beginning, most of the middle, and the end. But at some point, I jumped ahead and wrote the ending.
I now have to figure out how to get the main character to his own funeral, get Diamond to an ambush and have him killed....this time for good by his own daughter.
Oh, Diamond deserves every bit of the death he has coming. Then some.

But how the hell do I get them all together? HEEEELLLLLPPPP!

Visitors and gifts in the night

The other night I had two visitors in the night. I've felt them around before but didn't want to deal with what ever they wanted.

I was sleeping and I felt them next to my bed. I just stayed in that place between sleep and awake. One bent down and told me "This gift is inventiveness" I felt an electric surge, low level just tingly.
The next one touched my foot and said
"This gift is intuition" this time I felt myself filling up, from my feet, up through my legs, torso and chest. I then felt full. It was very weird. Then there were gone.
I have no idea who they were. Where they came from or where they went.
