Not the Christmas Update Post

I'm working on the Christmas and California update post, but our camera got lost and is now sitting in a locked office at the church, so I can't put pictures on the post; heaven forbid I post about what we did without pictures! It can't happen. So, you must wait. Sorry.

For now, I will give to you...a post! About something!

I have a lot on my mind. And lots to do. I should be cleaning right now, too --we still haven't recovered since coming back from our California trip. And it snowed about...8 inches yesterday? Yeah, the roads are awful. I had to do all of my driving yesterday, too! Remember how I said last month that it was fun?
Fun's over.
Snow is great when it's Christmastime. Even the cold is okay. But I have decided that after one month, snow and cold is overrated. It needs to go. Sad part? I've got at least two or three more months of this. Sigh...
Ha! That reminds me. Here's Brandon's status update from last night (on Facebook):
Brandon shoveled another four inches of snow tonight... I think Obama has *already* solved global warming, and he's not even President yet!!

Hahahahaha! Ha! ha.
Sigh.

So, I've realized now that I need a thousand dollars and two more weeks in order to enjoy London to it's fullest. Since that's not gonna happen, I've had to cut a few things out of my "must see!" list. But it's okay. I'm sure one day I'll travel to England for a bit longer than 6 days. I hope. Holy cow! I leave Monday! Why am I blogging!? I need to be doing something! Else!

By the way, dear reader, did you know that 2009 is gonna rock the world? I'm turning 30 this year, I'm traveling all over the place (sort of), Brandon will finally go back to school for his EMBA (a dream for him!), I'm getting emotionally and mentally healthy, and maybe other surprises will come our way. I'm purely, positively, powerfully optimistic. Sure, not everything is great, and sure we have some mountainous struggles ahead (I cannot clarify more than this --just trust me that it sucks), but I've decided not to focus on all the cruddiness (besides the fact that if I do, my depression will get worse, and who wants that in the year that's gonna rock the world?).

Okay, I better sign off. This is a lousy post anyway. Ummm...but I should say something in closing...how about have a good day? Yeah! Have a good day, dear reader. May it be full of accomplishment and non-laziness. I shall try to do the same!

Just be sure to enjoy London enough for the both of us!

Just one thought on the trip. I know we're all in a tough time financially. I get it. But, my one regret of our Ireland trip was that we worried soooooo much about our cash. If I could go again the only thing I would change would be to loosen up, put a few hundred on a credit card and let myself really experience all of it I wanted to. You don't know now if this will be a once in a lifetime trip for you and you don't want to cut out a phenominal must see because you can't let yourself pay admission. Don't go crazy, but just consider it. It's cheaper to spend an little extra on one trip than it would be to pay to go back a second time to see more.

That said, have a fantastic time!

I read this post. Every word.

Mother of the Wild Boys said...

I agree with Becky.

Cardalls said...

I am so excited for your trip! Really just ENJOY London and England and don't worry about what you can't do! I could just drive in the gorgeous countryside and be happy to see the thatched roof cottages and walk around the Cottswalds!

Julie said...

Hey, I read every word, too. I just don't have any words to contribute in response to it.
I just couldn't let Bythe have all the glory.

Cheryl said...

Annette-
I will!

Becky-
I love this advice. I shall remember it. And show it to Brandon. And then remember it some more. (no, seriously, it was awesome advice!)

Bythelbs-
Good girl!

Mother-
Me, too!

Cardalls-
I love the idea of a thatched roof; I shall have to see if I can find one!

Julie-
See, that's the thing --bythelbs told me she was sick of saying things like "ooh, neat-o" or "great post" when nothing would do. So, she has resorted to "I read every word" and for some reason, it makes me chortle. Or giggle. Not sure which, but I'm always glad I'm not drinking milk when I read it...
P.S. You don't have to steal her glory. You have glory all of your own, girl!

Alison Wonderland said...

Ooh, neat-o, or possibly, I read this post, every word too.

(I'd also like some glory.)
