Hey Yall! I bet you thought I forgot about yall, didn't you? Well, I didn't. I have just been busy and without anything much to tell you. I will do better and try not to neglect you. I promise.

As you can see in my cup of coffee on the right, I have managed to lose 36 pounds. Just a drop in the bucket to what I want to lose, but 36 lbs. is 36 lbs. So I won't complain at all. Maybe I will post an actual picture of myself one day. One day....

I am starting to get a little bit stressed. I shouldn't be, but it is just the way I get around those major holidays. I need to get the Christmas decorations from the attic and the basement. Yes, you read right. I couldn't have it in the same place. That would just be too logical and well, that wouldn't be me. I want to have the house pretty well decorated by Thanksgiving. It seems like we are always moving into a new house around this time and I can never enjoy decorating because I am having to unpack and think about buying gifts, so I am doing it early. I do need to get some ideas for Christmas presents.....you all know who you are! We are cutting back on Christmas gifts this year. It just seems to get out of hand and I doubt any of my kids can even remember what they got last year. And on top of all this, I need to start cooking and freezing some casseroles so I will have it all ready to thaw and cook. I don't like having to stay in the kitchen all the time. But to do all that cooking, plus Thanksgiving dinner, I need to make a list, check it twice, and go to the grocery store. Really, I need to get my thoughts together so I can get started. And my thoughts are partying everywhere right now!

I went to Augusta today. Michaels was on my list. Have yall been in Michaels recently? OMG! Christmas Christmas Christmas! Now I do not need ANY new decorations. But I wanted some. I wanted some craft stuff too. I wanted to start some new crafts, like beading, scrapbooking, cake decorating!!!!!!!!!! Like I have extra time to do any of that? I need to stay out of there. I ended up with just what I went in for and not much else. I can't tell you what I bought because it is someones Christmas present. Maybe later.....

I also need to find a new couch for our family room. Desperately!!! Down south, there is a furniture store practically on every corner. Not here in Maine.....I can't find more than a handful. Due to the fact that almost everything we have is damaged in some way from multiple moves, I do not want to buy an expensive top of the line sofa. Of course, I do not want one that will fall apart in a month. I can't seem to find that type of sofa. Of course, I can find exactly what I want at the Thomasville Furniture store in Portland. But that is the high end stuff and you know my reasons for not wanting to get that. I plan to go to Portland later in the week and have all intentions for finding just the right store.

I need to take some pictures of my Goodwill finds. I do love to go there. You never know what you will find. I may even start an online store to sell some of those finds. Maybe.....

I have deleted some of my recommended blogs. I don't think this will affect any of my readers though. I have found some new ones that I will be adding, so please go visit them when I do. I think you will enjoy them too.

I guess that is all my news. I will talk to you later....Tootles!
