I Live for Irony ...

Pin It

That's why I'm posting to explain why I'm not posting!

Hey, happy hello's! I hope your holidays were wonderful: filled with laughter, blessed with family, and touched by love. Oh. And presents ... lots of presents. And cookies! Trays and trays of yummy cookies.

I especially wanted to thank all of you who've emailed, written, telephoned, or stalked me to ask after me ... you guys are amazing! I so appreciate all of you ... and the wonderful friendships I've found with you.

And yes, I'm totally fine (objection, speculation!), just super-busy ... and seeking gainful employment. See? I'm practising my legal ^ already! Hopefully I, or the DH, will find any the right position soon. And as much as I enjoy blogging, it had begun to feel like a chore ... a chore that was burning up way too much daylight.

In the meantime, I'm still creating "stuff" for sale on eBay. And you'll be happy to know that I made 60 (yay, me!), Christmas cards and sent out exactly ... none. But, on the bright side, I'm WAY ahead for next year!

And lookie-loo! I made an ugly a super-simple card for you! But don't blame the stamps, 'cuz they're perfect ... and I heart them big lots. Hey, Big Lots ... shopping! Where was I? Oh, I remember: I shopped for them
HERE. You can shop for them there, too!


And I must say that Blogger photo upload appears to have changed while I've been absent ... I can't get my dang photos to be anything but huge! So sorry if this ^ image is too distorted, too large, or too small. Blame Blogger ... I'm gonna.

LOL, and now, for all of you Sheila-Fans ... I've been savin' this one for you:

I went to the Post Office with Sheila to buy stamps for her Christmas cards ... which cards, I might add, she actually managed to mail.

"So, what denomination?" asked the Postal clerk.

"Good grief! Umm, well, ... give me 50 Baptist and 50 Catholic,” she responded.

Seriously!

Hey, thanks for hangin' with me; I'll be back again before you know it!
