It reads: Dear Santa, Merry Christmas! I would love the Mario kart DS game! A red Matrix phone for att would be cool, also! But in the Spirit of Giving, I would like the less fortunate to get what they need to have a wonderful and safe holiday. Oh and again, Merry Christmas!
At this time of year when one minute I am worrying about not buying enough for her, then worrying about buying her too much. Thinking do we need another toy, knick knack or doo dad brought into this house? I often worry that as an only child with two sets of parents and several sets of grandparents ,she will lose the real meaning of the season. However she continues to show me that she knows what's really important.

I am feeling pressure tonight because my last two gifts have been widely sought after. I am not completely pleased with my gift. I wanted to put it together gift basket style but the cute "basket" I had just wouldn't accomodate the stuff. So I just wrappped it all and stuck in a gift bag. Here 's what I came up with.
2 wine glasses (Noel is written on the stems), 2 dish towels, a pack of beverage napkins and a bottle of $2 chuck. (always popular with the group, not sure what that says about us). I think I paid something like 25cents a piece for the glasses and maybe $3 for the set of towels. (love after Christmas sales). They've been sitting in my gift closet for a long time, waiting for just the right occassion.
Could that towel be any cuter? I am having second thoughts of letting go it it.I know these ladies, they are going to want this towel, the other stuff will just be a bonus.

Perhaps this is God's way of telling me to stop worrying about where my career should go because I am right where he wants me to be for now.

Any how, I am treating myself to a few days off from work starting tomorrow afternoon. My plan is to take a look at the next year and decide where to I want to be on my birthday in 2009 and develop a plan. I plan to get organized at home and come back to work refreshed and re-focused.

The weather was perfect. I got some exercise, raised money for a great cause, and got a cute shirt. Not a bad way to start the weekend.
