It just so happens that I find myself sulking around the house due to the pending arrival of Santa & Christmas. I just can’t get into the Christmas spirit. My parents are five hours away, my brother recently moved three hours away, my old brother is hours away and well … I just wish I could spend the holiday with them. Add to that my car recently fainted while my husband was driving – I can’t determine if it’s his driving that made the poor little car faint or if it’s just due to the age/mileage. =0) Eitherway – I’m trying to remain spirited through the holiday season … but in truth, it just gives me a head ache.
The kids will write their Santa letters today. My oldest asked for the Hulk game for his PS-2 .. I found on ebay for less than $10.00. My daughter wanted anything and everything Littlest Pet Shop – well I found a lot of that on Ebay too. I fulfilled their wishes. My middle son wants a remote control helicopter. I’ve yet to find one of those but I will. =0) I love making my kids smile. On too the meme portion …

I’m just going to be upfront, I’m not a happy holiday person. I don’t enjoy huge crowds, I don’t like to eat a lot and quite frankly .. I hate cooking. Thanksgiving is not a good holiday for me. I don’t want to be all bah-humbug … so I decided to post in my blog about how much I dislike Thanksgiving (unless Ma is cooking, than I’m a happy camper). Not to mention I have a massive headache today. Not fun!

Yesterday I knew my voice was on it’s way out. The kids are all coughing, sniffling and generally bitching about how ill they feel. I have offered to call MoTown Rescue several times, but they decline. I shipped the boys off to school with a good dose of brand name (and stupid expensive) cough medicine. I love this time of year! Not. I have entertained myself this a.m. by visiting That’s My Answer meme and playing along.

I woke up this fine morning to my nine year old laying next to me describing a ball of light that looked like this –> ( ), black shadows going over there —>, and a noise. It is always the noise that bothers me. We do not know where it is coming from, but my nine year old swears it was from over there —>.
Lets face it, a majority of the world believes in the possibility of after life, the paranormal, spooky-pants and I happen to fall in to that category. As my nine year old describes what clearly sounds the perfect paranormal experience – I had about five-thousand explanations going through my head. Do I tell him it might be a ghost? No, probably not. He wont ever sleep again and fail all of his classes. Not to mention it’s possible he may just want to rent his own house and be done with this one.
