I'm still standing.....

Hello friends. Just dropping by to say.... I'm alive, I haven't gained too much ( up a pound or two), I'm tired, I'm happy, I'm sore ( from all those trips up and down the stairs from my basement storage!) and I'M STILL CLEANING UP!!! Lol. I feel so guilty that I haven't checked in, and I have so much to talk about! But with my to do list so long, and one of my new girls out sick from work for awhile, I'm even more swamped than my usual swamped self.

Christmas was wonderful, and I will post lots of photos in a day or two. But I gotta tell you, having a sit down Christmas Eve dinner ( albeit, it was only the 7 of us) and then a full out, two turkeys, 1 ham, 24 person dinner on Christmas Day has worn me out. I am still putting away tables, and chairs, china and glasses, trays and roasting pans. Plus I do have some end of the year work stuff that has to be in by the end of this week. So indulge my whining for a bit please! I miss blogging, but I have been keeping up with all of you faithful bloggers out there. So give me a day or two and I'll be caught up. That is until my son and his girlfriend get here Friday for New Years Eve!!!!

Love, and big hugs to you all!

Thought for the day: Any thing is possible, and there is always an option.


  1. I'm tired just thinking about all that you are doing! I can't wait to hear all about it! And I would LOVE to see pictures! I love pictures! I love blogs to read! I love all my buddies:)
    I do hope that you get a minute for you to slow down though!

  2. Hello Darling, I think we were all up a lb or 2 from the holidays. It will be back off in no time. I can't wait to see the pictures. I know it was a ton of work - but I hope you had a great family time.
    Have a great day :-)

  3. That is a lot of work! I always love to have ppl over, but then I get overwhelmed trying to do it all properly! I am sure everyone appreciates you and your effort though.

  4. Good to hear from you Pattie, it's been a busy past several days for everyone. I would love to see your pics when you post them, your house and family are beautiful. I'm glad to hear that you were pretty good and are only up a lb or two, you have a wedding to get ready for and we want to you to feel good and be happy with how you look on your family's special day. :) big hugs :)

  5. Hey Pattie!
    I completely give you a standing ovation for pulling off a dinner like that back to back. You have a right to be tired girl, so go kick your "dogs" up. You've earned it!
    I love reading your posts & comments on our blogs. I know without a doubt if we lived closer, we would all be BFFs! You are an awesome person & a fabulous blogger buddy!!! Cant wait to see those pics!!!!
