on and on and on

Oh crud..... it's almost the end of 2011 and I haven't blogged in quite a while.  I figured I better get right on it because if the Mayans are right, 2012 will be ending abruptly.  And I really would like to be the one to get the last word in.....  my husband tells me I'm very proficient in that area.  I just tell him my tenacity is a fruit of the spirit.... but so far he isn't buying it.
I hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas.  I know we did.   It took days of wrapping and in 5.3 seconds, it was done.  Ok, well, maybe it took a couple hours, but still.  It didn't really seem like the wrapping to unwrapping ratio was very even.....
After waking up at 4:00 am on Christmas morning, I thought for SURE I would be able to sleep in today.  Nope.  My eyeballs popped open at 5:15.  Literally, they popped open.  It was like they had built in alarm clocks and my eye lids were like blinds that got yanked down and spun up out of control.  Even after I coaxed them back down, my brain was in gear writing my book, erasing, editing, retyping...etc.  Then the puppy, well, Justin's puppy needed to be taken out.  So, I got up.  Ron finally got up a little after 8am.  Not that I'm bitter or anything.........  but guess who will be driving home after the hockey game tonight at midnight?  Not me. 
So, about this hockey game.  Is it bad to hope that there are some knock down, drag  out fights?  It's kind of like watching Nascar..... it's only good if there are some good crashes.  Not that I want anyone to get hurt, but a few body checks into the glass might be a fun way to start the night. 
So I tuned into a few minutes of Hoarding.... Buried Alive on TLC this morning....  Yeah.  I seriously just don't understand.  I am sooooo the opposite of that.  I HATE clutter.  Hate it.   Let me say it once more.  I HAAATTTTEEEEE it.   In fact, I hate it so much that I'm probably the polar opposite of a hoarder and I'd probably be classified as a Thrower awayer.   I guess maybe I should pitch that as an idea for a show.   Thrown away.....nothing left.  Ok.... maybe that is not exactly true.  I don't throw everything away, but if it doesn't get taken care of, it's gone.    A chair that doesn't fit where I want it?   gone..... To many clothes in my drawer, or closet, even when they fit?  Gone....    Kids papers, toys, etc, etc...... so gone!   It's not that I'm organized, I'm really not.  It's just that I don't like STUFF.  If you aren't using it, then give it away, throw it away, burn it.  Why have it?  Ok.... I'm done.
Me thinks I've had to much coffee.........  but since I'm trying to get the last word in edge wise...... I'll go on.
Nope.... the brain just kicked off...... wow, that was awkward.
