Tis the season, I guess....

Well, it is that time of year again....Christmas is sneaking up on us! I don't know about you, but I have mixed feelings about this time of year. lol Christmas and I have this love/hate relationship that has been going on for about the last five years. I try REALLY hard every year to get into the Christmas spirit, but it is hit and day I get giddy and LOVE the idea of putting up decorations, shopping for presents, listening to Christmas music while sitting by the fire with my husband, watching Christmas movies, and most of all....being with my family. BUT...on other days, (makes fart noise and give Christmas a thumbs down)...I could a give a shit and just feel depressed. :-(

Right now, I feel pretty "Christmasy" hence the new music on my blog. BTW...I provided a large list on the displayer at very bottom of my blog, please feel free to choose whatever you want to listen to. I have a varied selection. Of course some of you are probably saying "ARE YOU CRAZY!? WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU PUT X-MAS MUSIC ON YOUR BLOG?" All I can say is....I do not listen to the radio, so I haven't heard any yet. lol I actually thought about writing out Christmas cards (GASP! I never do these) and maybe going Christmas shopping this weekend....but I will probably change my mind once I do bills and look at what's left of our money. /cry Finances also seem to get me down lately. I have not bought one present yet. lol

Starting in November, money starts to get really tight around our house. It just so depressing! lol We have tried to learn form our mistakes (I SWEAR!) We save up money for this time of year, but it just never seems to work out. Something ALWAYS comes up where we have to "dip" into our saved money. First we have tag two cars, and then we have the birthdays..sigh. Tyler and Dakotah's Bday is on Nov 27th, then mine on Dec 10th, and the Kiera's on the 14th. Four Bdays in about 3 weeks time frame. That is a lot of extra spending right there. It also NEVER fails that we all get sick in November or December. We just try and do the best we can. I am sure a lot of families have the same I will not bitch on this anymore. :-)

Another thing I really hate aroud this time of year is all the fucking rules we have to follow in order to be PC for Christmas time....pfffftt. What a bunch of bullshit. That is one thing about Wal-Mart I LOVE, they will tell me Merry Christmas!....not to mention I love there prices! If you have a child in school, this whole "PC" shit gets even worse. With the "Winter Programs, Winter Party," and such. Oh yeah, and DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT HAVING A CHRISTMAS PARTY AT WORK!! WHEW! That's a fucking mess just waiting to happen! What's next? Anyway, I do not want to get on a rant instead I am going treat you to a new version of the Night Before Christmas. This is written by Larry the Cable Guy, a comedian. When I heard it, I laughed my head off, but at the same time I shook my head in sadness....'cause people....I feel he makes a strong point.

Larry The Cable Guy-
"They are now trying to politically correct up Christmas Stories so that they don't offend nobody and that everybody everywhere can enjoy them. So this is a story that was formerly known as "'Twas The Night Before Christmas....."

"Twas The Night Before a Non-Denominational Winter Holiday"

Twas the night before a non-denominational winter holiday, and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

The neutral gift sacks were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that a non-specific holiday figure would be soon be there.

Children of every race, creed, and nationality,were rested all snug in their beds
While visions of sugar-free plums danced in their heads.

When out on the lawn there rose such a clatter
I got out of bed to see what was the matter....and to find out who was violating the neighborhood sound level ordinance!

But what to my wondering eyes did appear?
But an emissions-free vehicle, and 8 sized-challenged reindeer.

Holiday figure was so lively and quick
I knew in a moment it must figure.

He had a broad but normal face, and an advanced sized belly,
and he laughed, "Lady of the Evening! Lady of the Evening! Lady of the Evening!"

......"Now can you believe that? What in the world -- you can't even say "Ho! Ho! Ho!" anymore?! What kind of commie crap is this? I don't care who you are his name is Santy Clause and he cracks deer with a horsewhip, breaks into people's houses, drinks rum and eggnog, and looks like Uncle Jessie from "The Dukes of Hazard"....End of Story!"

Well, I would go on, but my kids.....
I will write more soon.
Hope you enjoyed some Christmas Cheer! (well sort of LOL)

ROFL I love Larry. He makes me laugh! And it is very true, everyone is trying very hard to to offend anyone else... I really don't get it. A big part of life is being offended by people who you don't agree with!!! It gives you an opportunity to learn how to stand up for your ideas, beliefs and convictions. It builds character and makes life a little more interesting.

That is why, every day, I make a POINT to offend at LEAST one person. I do this as a public service, there is no need to thank me or offer me payment... :)

I LOVE Christmas!!! It is my favorite. And I will be that obnoxious person who plays xmas music starting the day after Thanksgiving and puts up her tree the weekend after. I buy gifts year round. Oh, and I really do still think of it as a christian holiday(GASP!). Put that in your pipe and smoke it Santa. HAHAHa or should I say...HOHOHO! Merrry Christmas!

Supermom I totally agree, it is a part of life. It makes people stronger and helps arm them with the tools they will need to survive in life. It builds character!

Amber of course it is a christina holiday lol That's my whole point. I love that you play the music, buy presents all year, and put your tree up as soon as you can. People like help others get "in the mood." Thank you for being a motivater for others. You are like my husband lol. He thinks about Christmas from the day after Christmas all the way to the next one lol. (Well he takes a break at Halloween...he really likes that one too)

Thanks for commenting guys!
