It’s not you, it’s me

Really, honestly my lack of communication this week has nothing to do with you all. I love you all. In fact, I’ve been stalking some of you and you didn’t even know it because I haven’t commented, but really I still puffy heart each and every one of you. It’s me, and work that’s been keeping me away. Work has been crazy-busy but since it’s Friday I figure I’ve earned a little blog time!

So, to recap the last week or so: Thanksgiving was a success! Everything got done with time to spare, the food was great, Shawn and the kids pitched in big time to help get everything ready and it was really just a great weekend all around. Until Sunday when I finally got out and got some Christmas shopping done, which sucked the Christmas joy right out of me. Can I be honest here? Yes I can because it’s my blog, so I’m just gonna lay it out – I hate Christmas shopping. I love giving presents, but I hate the shopping. I hate spending $25 bucks on a cheap plastic toy that will be at the bottom of the toy box next month. I hate it that things are so overpriced and not worth the money you pay for them. I hate it when I don’t know what to get. *sigh* Shawn tells me to not worry about it and just spend the money. I just want to get a good value for my money – is that too much to ask?

I did manage to get all my decorating finished and the tree decorated, so that’s good. I really do love Christmas time and I am really excited that we are going to my sister’s house the day after Christmas to have Christmas with all of my family – that will be a blast! Then the weekend of New Year’s we are going to Memphis to visit some of Shawn’s extended family. We haven’t been back to Memphis for several years, so I think it will be a fun trip for the kiddos. Not sure if we’ll do Graceland again – been there, done that already, so it’s not such a big thrill anymore.

Oh hey guess what?! I get to go to therapy today! FOR MY FINGER, not for my head, thankyouverymuch, although I could probably use some of that as well. It still hurts when I type so maybe they’ll be able to help me with that. I hope so, because it’s hard to type with a finger tip protector on! It should be interesting.

Oh – I got my hair cut and I love it! I went back to my regular girl and told her exactly what I wanted and she cut it exactly the way I wanted it!! I dig my hair now.

Please to enjoy my luscious curls

 Oh remember the girlstache debaucle?  Well I did it again.  This time I thought I would try waxing instead, thinking that lots of people do it, so how bad could it be?  HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER!! THAT SHIZZ HURTS!!!! And now I’m left with a bunch of lovely bumps all over my upper lip and chin. I’m irresistable ya’ll.  Smo-kin. Anyone ever tried those Smooth Away thingies? That’s probably next on my list.

Before I go I want to wish one of my best blogging buddies a very happy birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEBBY!!!  I hope you have a wonderful day!!


Later taters – me and my hot hair and bumpy chin have some work to do, so you all have a good weekend!!

  1. Heeeeey Jillie! What a great way to start my birthday, with a blog from you. I was just about to send out the troops to see if you were okay. Really, last night, I really really wanted to send you an email just to make sure you were okay. Really, have you noticed that I use the word really too much? It is really bugging me.

    So glad your Thanksgiving went so well. And Christmas plans sound like a blast. About the xmas shopping. I have given it up. But what about having a box/drawer/place to put gifts when you find good ones at good prices throughout the year. I started doing this a long time ago and really like it. Only disadvantage is my disorganization. Sometimes I forget what is in there and buy something else before I check.

    LOVE the haircut and love the curly hair. My straight hair is bugging me lately, and I am fighting the urge to go and get a perm…

    All I can say is, DON’T (and if I had the ability I would have changed the font size of that don’t to GIANT) get those smooth away thingies. At first it seemed wonderful, and then something was terribly wrong with my face. And I can’t even tell you what it was. But it wasn’t right.

    My friend went for the laser treatment and LOVES it. I’m too cheap for that for now. But my eyes are getting worse. How much magnification can you get in a mirror??? Then you have to start looking at your wrinkles in a magnifying mirror…

    1. You are so funny! You use the word really like I use the word AWESOME. Everything is AWESOME! But really, that’s okay!

      Okay so I won’t get the Smooth Away thingies. I’ll put laser treatment on my list right after I get my vision corrected and my vericose veigns taken care of. I have a feeling a lot of my 40’s are going to be spent in doctor’s offices having lots of cosmetic work done!

      Gifts – I always say I’m going to start buying throughout the year and then I never do, but I might just make that a goal for next year ( sounds like a good New Year’s Resolution, hm?).

      OH – and please email me whenever you want!!! 🙂

  2. I was wondering about you too. Glad to hear you didn’t fall into the taters and get mashed to death.
    I’m doing laser hair removal, so far I haven’t seen a lot of results, but it’s really early on. For waxing though, there is a product called No Bumps, which was suggested to me when I waxed.
    Your hair looks awesome! You have such pretty curls!
    I loved Graceland…it was a religious experience. I’d love to go back to Memphis one of these days. I didn’t do enough while I lived there.
    Happy shopping!

  3. Good luck with the finger therapy.

    Your hair looks great!

    I wouldn’t waste the money on that Smooth Away stuff. I bought it and used it once and returned it. It’s like sandpapers that turns your skin gray and takes forever to remove the hair. It certainly isn’t as easy as it looks on the commercials.

    Have a great weekend!
