December 28, 2005

we’re having a new year’s eve party.

we had one last year; however, this year we will be having more people and it will be at our place. i’m excited…except for one minor detail.

our place is still full of boxes. and i’m sick, so joe won’t let me help.
sigh. i hope i’m better tomorrow (at least able to sit and stand without being dizzy)so i can help with the cleaning and organizing. joe’s been off work this week, so he’s been able to get more done. i’m busy enough just trying to keep up with the laundry!

joe just woke up, and he’s not feeling well now. i bet he got my bug. the doctor said i was contagious. sigh. now i will be busy taking care of him the way he took care of me. heh.

*hugs*

please go to renee’s and send her some good thoughts. her dad was killed thursday night in a car wreck. she really needs our thoughts and prayers right now.

time to celebrate!

December 24, 2005

i love christmas. i absolutely love it. my family’s always opened presents christmas eve after a service at church, and i can’t wait to see them open what i got them. i love how happy my presents make them.

joe and i gave each other our presents last night. we wanted to do it alone. he gave me a relic watch, gilmore girls season 5 (yay!), a kitchen clock in the chef motif and a blue topaz ring (soooo pretty). he said the jewelers told him it’s what they use for march. whatever happened to aquamarine?? i gave joe a handheld poker game (he misses his poker games with the boys), a fossil watch and a silver frame with “i love you” engraved on it and a picture of me in it. i knew it would love it, and it was so awesome to see his reaction. i had tears in my eyes. heh. he said it was the best and sweetest gift he’s ever gotten.

we also did stockings. it was joe’s idea. i had my stocking from home and two others hung over the fireplace for decoration, and he told me he was going to stuff my stocking. that meant a lot to me. so i spent some time looking for stocking stuffers for him. it was so much fun. and next week it’s hanaukkah. wooo.

merry christmas to everyone! i hope you all have a wonderful one.

where’s the real meaning of christmas?

December 24, 2005

several churches in atlanta are not holding services on christmas. in fact, many churches throughout the country are closing tomorrow. i’m have a problem with this, mainly because the entire reason for christmas is the celebrate jesus’ birth. and this would be where the church comes in. i understand it’s mainly the “megachurches” with several thousand members closing, but that doesn’t make it right. there are people who only go to church on christmas; what kind of an example is it to close the house of god on christmas? or any day of worship for that matter. whenever christmas is on a saturday, we go to church, and those are my favorite services. people have said how christmas is becoming more and more secular and commercialized and that we need to revert back to remembering the true reason; the closing of churches doesn’t help that. it’s like it’s condoning the secularizing of the holiday.

this column sums up my feelings much better than i can write them.

it’s funny…i heard about this right after joe told me he was pitching a story idea to the media of a professor who’s talking about how we need to get back to the real meaning of christmas. how ironic.

funny

i was watching an old episode of family feud today on the game show network. this was during the bonus round.

host: “name a vegetable that’s fried in batter”
contestant: “fish!”

surprisinly enough, that garnered a zero. hehe. i laughed. hard.
