What a week...

It has been a long couple of days. Really, really excruciating long. I think that my child was suffering from a well known children's disease called post-Christmas lameness. She was being a whiny little turd that would settle for nothing less than trying to crawl up my butt and never give me a moments peace. All I wanted was time to pack our bags for our pending Seattle trip and to clean the bathroom so my friend who is house/dog sitting has a clean pot to sit on. =) According to Jae though, that was FAR too much to ask! *sigh*

Christmas went really well... Jae, like most three year olds, made out like a bandit and I received a beautiful staff that my parents made for me. It's a lovely piece of willow about two inches shorter than I am (and I stand at 65") with a leather bound hand hold and medicine pouch. One of the most amazing parts though, is the hollowed out knot just above the hand hold that my parents put a beautiful piece of quartz crystal point into. Really, it's so amazing!

She practically sings! She hasn't told me her name yet... but we'll get there. =)

Right now, I'm watching an Australia show called Dance Academy. It's actually really cute, and I will likely veg out on the couch and watch a few more episodes until I decide I'm truly tired and will be able to sleep without tossing and turning.

Blessings to everyone and I'll write again soon.

Warning- rant on e-cards.. may offend those that like to use them!

YUP. E-cards. Ok, so I get that sometimes it's nice to send out a fun little "hey I was thinking about you" message... and in these cases, using an "e-card" is acceptable as it's much more fun than just an email. But, let me make something clear, the use of e-cards for birthdays, holidays, anniversary's and the like is just rude. I said it. RUDE. Oh, and let's not forget the fact that everyone in your address book got the same cheesy, "I hope you have a great holiday season. Love, X, X, X, and X" message in the card. I understand that it's the same thing when you MAIL a card to someone, but at least when you mail a card, that means you took the time to actually, with your own hand, write in the card, address each envelope and affix a stamp to it. They may be standard across the board, but at least you took time with each individual one instead of hitting "copy/paste" and "send"after filling in a few blanks to make sure that everyones names are on the card.

The point- e-cards suck and are a very distanced, disjointed way of wishing someone any type of happy holiday. To the person that sent that damn thing (though I highly doubt you'll ever see this blog), take me off your damn mailing list. To everyone else, sorry you had to "listen" to my feelings about these atrocious things.

Back at last

I am so sorry on my month long absence... I've been trying to squeeze in every last drop of family time possible between life, appointments and "oh craps". My hubby has officially deployed and now I'm trying to get back in the swing of things. A lot of stuff has happened that I'm aching to blog about, so you'll have to bear with me as I try to squeeze in blogs between last minute holiday prep and some traveling to help out a few friends in Seattle that are in desperate need of assistance...

So, as it's late and I've been up since 3am making trips to the airport and crying, I'm just going to write a quick outline of things coming up:
1.) Dream Walking with Stars
2.) December Full Moon Ritual/meditation
3.) Yule and the Dark Moon

Those are the big things right now, though I'm sure that I'll add more to that once I settle in for some good, lengthy typing. =)

I hope that you all are well, and I can't wait to get caught up on everyone's blogs!

Blessings to you all this beautiful season!

A parting thought...
