Jingle Bells

I've been shopping,
I've been wrapping,
I've been mailing Christmas cards.

I've been writing Christmas letters,
I've been working very hard.

Blaring carols in the van,
Christmas spirit in a can.

I've been baking cookies,
making menus, perusing recipes.

Cleaning house and decorating,
spreading Yuletide glee.

Wait! Hold the phone. This guy has the right idea. Now that's what I'm talkin' about.

I AGREE!!!! I have been sick for a week, upper respitory crap, no voice, etc., and I am sooooo tired! I am in charge of the Angel Tree this year and we have 51 angels, so you know what that is like. We are delivering gifts tomorrow night, so hopefully I can relax after that! But, I got my shopping done early, so maybe I will be able to curl up under the tree this weekend....LOL

di - Oh no! Sorry you are sick. At least you don't have to deliver Angel Tree gifts in ice and snow. I hope you get to rest and feel better soon!

How can I get some of the Christmas spirit in a can? And does it come in 16oz?

My cat helps out in exactly the same way!

At least she doesn't "help" me wrap anymore. That was sooo annoying.

jeff - I think it's like Red Bull or something. It gives you wings. So you can fly to the top of the tree and be the angel. Or something.

heather - I have to close the door when I'm wrapping or I would end up choking the cat with ribbon!

Makes me lonesome for our kitty we had for 15 years!!! And who chewed the ribbons on all the packages under the tree!!! He didn't just lay there like yours is doing--all nice and quiet! Lois
