So Sorry dear friends for the title but all of my Christmas spirit has been taken away, you wonder who would take my Christmas spirit.Well I bet you will be suprised to find out that it is my one and only Son Matthew who is only here in CA because we bought him plane tickets.
I have been waiting for so long for him to come, he had a friend pick him up at the aiport which really bummed me out,now it is Sunday night very late and I still have not seen or heard from him. What a nice Christmas gift for me. I am very mad at him right now and even madder at myself that I am allowing him to ruin Christmas for me. But now I am just so sad and heart broken that I just dont' feel in the Christmas mood anymore. Roger is very upset with Matthew too because he knows that he always breaks my heart like this and he is just tired of it.
I did have some fun things happen this past week and for that I am truly happy. First my pen pal Vivian from Columbus Ohio sent me some goodies in the mail. I wasn't expecting anything and she was so genorus with some very nice gifts
Here are some pictures of what I received~
This one is of me holding the things she sent~Sorry that I look horrible in the picture :)
Here is a close up of the shelf sitter and apron, the apron fabric is just beautiful~
She also sent this cute little bag with a gingerbread man on the front and a package of gingerbread mix inside of it along with two very pretty towels and a large red jingle bell and a wooden spoon~
I also received another package in the mail, it was a small package but what it held was enormus amounts of love and hard work. I love homemade things
THis next picture is of the little mini quilt that my dear friend Bren made, I just love it and look and feel it everyday~
I too had things to send to people and here they are all packaged up waiting to be taken to the post office~
I am just waiting for 2010 to get here, I have so many things that are going to be changing, the first on the list is after being a mom for 28 years I will finally be putting myself first!! I have always put my children and their needs before my own and they turned out selfish and self centered so no more!! IT's going to be ME, if this sounds selfish to anyone out there frankly I don't care!!
I don't have any updated pictures of the craft room but I did work in there for a couple of hours today. I put all the things needed to make purses into one large clear bin and it will be labeled so I will know where to find what I need.
Well it's almost midnight so I guess I better go to bed, I will try and have a more merry attitude in the coming days
