It's s-l-o-w-l-y beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Usually on Black Friday I shop then on Saturday I wrap and decorate. This year:

-The tree is up; the beads are on...no ornaments yet.
-The candelabras are in the windows...nothing else
-That's it...the boxes are in the upstairs hallway
-Wrapping is about 1/3 done...all but 2 people are bought for--one I am taking shopping and the other is just too damned hard to shop for *Mom* ;-)

I love finishing decorating and shopping early so I can truly focus on friends, family, and the true meaning of Christmas!!!

How is it Already Thanksgiving (Next Week)??

Where did this year go? I feel like it was just summer. I haven't even started shopping for the holidays and I am usually almost done by now. AUGH!!!

Does anyone else feel like this snuck up on them? Are there still 12 months in a year, because it only feels like 6?

Take a Moment Today...THANK A VETERAN!!!

Today is Veteran's Day in the U.S. Please take a moment from your day and thank a veteran for his or her service. Thank their family members for allowing the veteran to serve. The family worries as much as the soldier/sailor/marine.

Thank you to all the veteran's who have served and are actively serving! I enjoy my freedoms and my lifestyle because of your choice to serve. God Bless all who serve/d in the military!
