Happy Holidays!!

Wednesday, December 23, 2009
It is Wednesday, December 23rd, about 10:30 a.m. I don't have the Christmas tree up, obviously it's not decorated yet either! I've done very little Christmas shopping and what few things I have bought, I haven't wrapped yet. I have written only ONE STINKING SENTENCE for our annual Christmas letter. So, you may be asking yourself, "If Annette hasn't gotten squat done for Christmas, why is she posting on her blog?" Well, that's a good question. Actually, right now I'm multi-tasking!! I'm posting and browning hamburger for a big crock pot of chilli! Plus, I'm watching "The Price is Right!" Wow! I'm doing three things at the same time!! My head might just explode! Crap! The hamburger is burning! But, THANK YOU GOD!! They're playing Plinko on TPIR!!!!! This is turning into quite the exciting day! OK, the hamburger is now mostly brown and the guy has just won 5 Plinko chips, meaning he could win $50,000!!! Crap! Alvin only got $1,200. Bummer!
Anyway, let's get back to the little voices in your head...."Why is Annette making chilli, I didn't think she cooked?" Well, you're right, I don't cook. But, I can make chilli. We are in the middle of a winter storm warning here in Nebraska and my baby boy is driving home from Chicago today with his dog. So, I figured if he survives the trip through this stupid storm, he'd like some of "Mom's Chilli" for dinner!

You might also be asking yourself, "Why is Annette watching 'The Price is right?'" I'm watching that brainless show because I'm so tired of listening to the adds and arguments on the radio and watching the ads and arguments on the television about HEALTH CARE!! I am not going to make a political statement here. But, I would like everyone remember that it is the holiday season, it's not a time to be arguing, yelling and screaming and pointing fingers! Go home! Bake some cookies! Eat some chocolate! Hug your kids for crying out loud!

Now to quiet that last little voice in your head, "Why is Annette blogging instead of writing her Christmas letter?" Well....I don't know! I'm just not in the Christmas spirit. It might be because we don't have our tree up yet (which is very unusual for us! Rod's just been so crazy busy the last few weeks). Maybe I'm just waiting to get Chris home. Maybe it's because I can't get the dogs to wear their antlers for a good picture. Or, this is the most likely culprit...I'm just LAZY!!

So, that's it for now.
Thanks for checking in.
Thanks for reading.
Annette

p.s. Hopefully this will be what it takes to kick my behinder in gear!!

Ok, I was all sleepy and ready to go to bed, but I thought I'd check to see if anyone blogged. And I read yours, and I was laughing so hard, that now I'm wide awake!! LOL!! You are too funny! I hope your chili came out wonderful! TPIR is what we watch at rehab, because it's hard to hear the news! And I love that show anyway, I've watched it on and off since I was a kid. Love Plinko!! Also, I hope Chris got there safe and sound!! Don't worry about a tree...as long as you're together as a family for the holidays, nothing else matters!! Hope you have a great one, Annette!!

Many hugs, my phriend!!
Colleen :)

I learned this year I'm allergic to the smell of Christmas trees because of the Tayvaso, it makes everthing dialate and my nose goes wacko!! So there was no Christmas tree for us but I made a tree of Poinsetta plants. Remember Annette as long as the feeling is in your hear and spirt. I hope Chris & his dog get there safe.
Annette wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a special 2010.

Your PHriend,
Bonnie, NV

Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is ever-permeating in this day and age, and I can say with 99% certainty that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory decreases, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
