I just wanted to leave you all with holiday greetings, as I am going to be MIA for the next week. I am off work until the day after New Years, except for one day next week where I am due in court. I will try to check in on some of your sites if I get the time (and the laptop I am asking for this xmas, DO YOU HERE ME, HUBS, err, Santa?), but don’t expect any new posts any time soon. I mean, unless I also get some sort of burst of creativity for xmas as well, but I’m not envisioning that scenario occurring.
Anyway, to everyone at this time of year, for whatever you celebrate, be it Chanukah (Happy Dreidel Days, ma peeps!), Christmas (Ho Ho Ho), Kwanzaa (Joyous kwanzaa to you all!) or Festivus (for the rest of us) . . . have a very happy one. Enjoy the time with your loved ones, and try not to kill any family members. It would not be very festive of you, right?
Now, before I leave you all, I feel it is my duty, nay my absolute obligation, to share with you one of the raddest things that I have received so far this holiday season. Remember back when I was begging and pleading with all of you to send me your addresses so I could send everyone a xmas card? Well, a few of you asked for mine and have sent cards to me as well. The first one I received was from Carrie from The Cannibalistic Nerd fame. And this was no ordinary card. No, not at all. This was a hand-made card, which she described as something a 7 year old might create. I would describe it as fucking awesome!! So, I felt I had to share this creative card with you all, so you could appreciate the absolute joy I experienced as I perused this most wonderful and thoughtful of creations. My kids were wondering why mommy was cackling so hard at this card and I had to show them. They also enjoyed it, despite not truly understanding the significance. But y’all will get it.
Ok, have I built it up enough yet? Well, without further ado, here it is . . . enjoy:
Completely and totally fucking awesome, right? Possibly the best card ever made in the entire world? Am I over-stating this? I really don’t think so! 🙂 I have also received some lovely and adorable cards from some of my other peeps, so don’t feel bad that I didn’t include your cards here as well. I truly appreciate all the cards I have received from everyone (I have received Johi’s & Thoughtsy’s cards so far and am being told by others that more are coming). Thank you to everyone, really. And here is where I’m gonna get all sappy on your asses, so if you prefer to skip this part, feel free. I am truly thankful and grateful for all of you out there in the blogosphere that I have met this year, both online and personally. You all have made me laugh, made me cry and made me so happy that I started this blog, because otherwise I never would have known any of you. And having you all in my lives has been the greatest gift this year that I ever could have received. I am truly thankful for all of your friendships and support over these last few months and love all of you crazy bitches (even the dude-bitches!) to death. Thank you for coming into my life and sharing your own lives with me. I feel truly blessed and grateful for all of you. Have a wonderful holiday season everyone. See you all in the New Year. Love ya! Happy Happy to all!! Misty
