may your days be merry and bright

despite a runaway dog, the flu, impossible work deadlines, and flaky friends. despite the fact that I have many presents left to buy, and won't get to it until tomorrow. despite ruined New Year's plans. I've managed to find Christmas again.

listening to my xmas iTunes folder has helped. with everyone from Elvis to The Fray to the Smashing Pumpkins adding to the cheer. then there's the fact that as soon as I get word back on a report and sign it, I'm out of here!

besides, runaway dog* was found (although not feeling well, due to too much dumpster diving). the flu has begun to move on. and non-flaky friends are still going with me to listen to a friend's band tonight.

in the last few days I've also managed to treat a friend to a belated birthday dinner, and have a few drinks and play foosball with a friend in town for the holidays.

and so, I hope all of you have found your holiday spirit.

Happy Holidays!


* not my dog, a dog I'm watching for a friend of a friend

It's been difficult getting in the spirit for lots of people I know, myself included. Glad you're finding some though :)

Merry Christmas, Ramblin' Girl ~

The wonderful thing about Christmas and getting the spirit is that it sneaks up on you and grabs you, sometimes when you least expect it...wishing you the happiest of holidays, a wonderful time with what sounds like a fantastic family, and the promise of a new year.

P.S. This may never post, as I have just received the most impossible word verification EH-ver. Phonetically, it sounds like "easy money." Hmmm.
