So much for that idea.. short update

I was going to update with pictures from our Thanksgiving trip to DC... but.. seems AOL is updating it's You'v Got Pictures webpage and service so... so much for that.  That also explains why you can't see the pics in my previous entries right now.. boo.. hiss.. LOL.

I know, I have been incredibly lazy with my blogging and blog reading and my e-mail and whole online life for that matter.  I could justify it with an excuse about having this fabulously busy life.. haha.. half true.. busy at times but half the fab.  There are no excuses for me anymore.. so I'll stop offering them up.  K?

I wanted to save my retelling of our travels over thanksgiving for when I could include the pictures.. its always better with pictures.  But I will say this.. we had a wonderful family trip and I am grateful that we were able to take a day to visit the Capital or has the locals refer to it, The District.  I was awed and inspired and put in my place I guess you could say.  We saw so much, that is why I want to save the retelling with my pictures.. and it really sucks that I can't because that was my whole purpose for getting online (besides deleting the 1000 e-mails I had)

Hard to believe it is December already! This year is flying by, my life is flying by!  Remember when we were little children and it seemed to take an eternity to get to Christmas?  Now I am an old folgie and it comes and goes way too fast.  I have all of two gifts bought and had my head bit off for buying even that. My budget is non right now.. so not sure when I will be able to get the rest done.  Traditionaly we would use Josh's end of the year vacation money on Christmas but this year the responsible thing to do with it is to pay the taxes on the house .  But the outside Christmas Lights are up and going and we have some inside decorations adorning the living room.  This year I am not going all out on the house since we will be out of town this year and no one is coming over.  I'm not sure we need a tree lol even a fake one.

Since I am so behind.. drop me a comment and let me know how you have been doing.. how was your Thanksgiving and how is your Holiday plans shaping up???



  1. I've noticed also that AOL was doing something with the picture service.  Sometimes, I wish they'd just leave things alone.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  Have a good rest of your week.

  2. Hey Mary!  Glad you're back-for now at least.  I saw pictures from my Mother in law's trip to DC.  I really would love to go some day.  Can't wait to see your pictures.  When are you leaving for your next trip?  If soon- I'll say Merry Christmas now- if I talk to you agin, well- Merry Christmas again!  God Bless!!  Carolyn- PS  did you have a lot of snow in the last storm?  I know a lot of places had pretty nasty weather- I was thinking about you!

  3. Nice to see you back! I look forward to seeing the pictures! I love DC!

  4. Look forward to hearing about your trip!  And seeing the pictures.  Should at least put up a little greenery around inside, something to spark the Christmas spirit for yourselves when you are home.  Our Christmases are always extremely tight times of the year as well.  I suppose at least that keeps us from splurging on a bunch of stuff that is just nonsense.  LOL  -  Barbara
