Ebeneezer Scrooge Died Today

I am all about fun. Really, I am. Fun and love and happiness and joy. That's me. Fun, fun, fun. As I've read through some of my last few posts, however I've noted that they all seem to have a sort of negative vibe, a vibe which completley goes against my let-the-good-times-roll ways. Maybe I'm not fun. This is disturbing.

Since I've made the non-fun discovery, I've been racking my brain trying to come up with some sweet holiday antidotes to put fun back at the top of my list and to remind you all that I am, indeed, a party. I got NOTHING.

So here's what I've decided to do. I'll relay a few quick experiences from recent days and turn them into fun no matter what it takes. Here goes:

  • While finishing my Christmas cards, I was fortunate enough to make three separate trips to Kinko's! It was great! I loved being in the car with four sweet children, waiting paitently in the construction zone and keeping track of said children in a store while a really nice new employee to Kinko's tried to help me. I am so thankful for the opportunity to hold onto my sanity as I got my cards completed. What a neat lesson for me!
  • In order to mail my Christmas cards, I was lucky enough to need to go to the store for postage. I am so happy that there is a post office inside Yokes to help me! I was hoping that they had a postage meter to quickly run all 47 cards through but they didn't, so I was all too happy to stand while corraling three kids and holding onto another and put stamps one-by-one on each card. And I'm really grateful for the post office lady who stood by and watched me while telling me about her son's school project. Such a nice story!
  • Finally, I am so grateful for the lovely wind storm that is whipping through the Treasure Valley. I love having my hair tornadoed around my head! Such a crisp and fun feeling! And I'm really happy about the wind ripping the Christmas lights off half of my house! My son, once he gets over his tears, will be thankful to learn a lesson about the power of Mother Nature!

That's all I've got for now! I love Christmas! And cards! And Kinko's! And wind! And I'm all about farging FUN!

Those storiess really brought the christmas spirit home, and sound a little to familiar. seriously as much as we love the holidays it seems like there is always a ton of craziness to try and kill that happy feeling. I figure if you can make it through christmas without entering an insane asylum then it really has been a magical happy christmas.

I was wondering where you've been. Of course you've been busy having fun! Sounds like a great time!

Love the "fun" twist on all of the holiday craziness! But hey, that's what we "Yellows" are all about right? FUN, FUN, FUN!!! Okay,so technichally on the color personality chart, I'm a mix of yellow, blue, and white, but yellow's at the top! Bring on the fun!

You are cracking me up Karen! I don't know what it is about the Christmas season, but it really brings out the craziness in everyone. If it makes you feel any better, I did pull out the whole "female/minority" card in getting my very own Nintendo Wii. Apparently I'm all about holiday cheer as well.

Sounds like Lindsay has her own blog story to share. And the wind has been wack-o. I'm done with garland flying and pots rolling down the driveway. Will it ever stop?

Thanks for all the great visuals, I especially loved the hair tornado.
