A womans work is never done!

I know, I should have updated a long time ago. I have just been absolutely crazed this last week between preparing for Christmas, work and the fruit of our loins..the kids. And oh yes, the inlaws are also visiting! Tomorrow I am cooking for loads of guests and I am run off my feet wrapping presents, looking for a nice gift for everyone, and being the perfect wife/mom/hostess/employer/parent/volunteer/giftgiver/bathroom scrubber/cook/garbage takerouter/peacemaker between kids/fashion stylist to my daughter/ballet rehersal coordinator/hall monitor/jumping on the couch kid admonisher etc etc etc.

Tomorrow I think I will breathe deeply for a moment, after the guests are gone and the dishes are clean and the presents are put into" delightful so use immediatly/useful so place in closet/return to store for gift certificates immediately" piles and then I will update to talk about some serious stuff that I have been reading and thinking about.

Meanwhile, have a very Merry Christmas everyone!

Your Gharghutee paushtik jevan menu brings back happy memories. The Ashwasak haath makes me smile in contentment. Thank you.

Christmas was great. Much fun was had by all. I cooked. They ate. We drank a lot of wine. We opened presents and then watched Mama Mia and everyone sang along. It was that kind of day. And yes I made out like a bandit with my presents!

Comic Project:
I am looking forward to exploring your blog very thoroughly. You are very gallant in your appreciation of women. So ... thank you!

Yes, that is my little daughter turning cartwheels in the backyard. Thanks for your compliment about the blog header.

Christmas is always good when the presents are lovely... for the kids that is. I hope you are a planning a merry time to usher in the New Year.

Welcome! I hope you will stop by often. I am not sure what direction the blog will take, but my hope is that lots of people will find things to amuse and interest them on my blog. My daughter thanks you for the complement for the blog header. She is now upto doing 3 cartwheels in a row and wants me to photograph her!
