Here I sit, cuddled up on the couch under a quilt and drinking a cup of coffee, berating myself for putting things on the back burner yet again,
Tuesday, I had planned to take the car to the garage for its annual inspection, then run to AAA to renew the registration as they both run out December 31. Going down the hill I realized that all of the sudden...no brakes. I made it safely to the garage, and the nice man gave me a ride home as the repair would take a little longer than expected previously...still no problem, as I had today off and could pop down to update the registration and stay legal...ha ha ha!!
Well, here it is 7:00 PM, and the car still is not done. No way to get to AAA and I have no way to get to work, unless it is done before noon tomorrow, but the way my luck has been running, with a simple inspection turning into a $1000 repair, I am not holding my breath. But at least, there is only 29 hours left in 2009.
This year (2010), everything I plan will be expected to cost more and take longer than I expect, and, will be completed way before the deadline!

Apologies for yesterday's bitch session, but I was in a dark place and it was cold there. Today isn't much better. but I truly believe we reap what we sow, and I need to get my head into a better place.
Today is the first day of Yule. Today we light the first of four candles and allow the light to permeate our souls and lift us up...for all my witchy friends, have a blessed and happy Yule, and for everyone else, happy holidays, whichever one you celebrate.

Every year, I hate the cold more and more. I hate shoveling snow, I hate the way my arthritis aches, I hate bundling up, and I hate the way I tend to hibernate.
I am not much a fan of Christmas, anymore, either. I don't have any family here to share with, and I am always working, and yet I never have the money to do anything.
I have always looked forward to the Christmas party with the LALA's. but this year they have decided not to exchange gifts, which was the only thing I truly looked forward to, because it was the one gift I could shop for and enjoyed seeking out the right gift.
I don't think I will even cook, or put up a tree again this year. I work second shift, so there is little time to enjoy the tree. I don't get home until after midnight, and the house is cold, so I head for the comforter, and watch a little TV, then sleep...get up, talk to Mo, feed the dog , get ready and off to work. Repeat.
