On My 12th Day of Pre-Christmas

Well, my fine feathered and furry friends, it's finally here. IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!!! And you-know-who arrives tonight!!! We're down to the wire, too, for the pre-days of Christmas.....and the countup....(can you see that I'm stalling for time here??) My 1st Day of Pre-Christmas! , My 2nd Day of Pre-Christmas, My 3rd Day of Pre-Christmas! , My 4th Day of Pre-Christmas and My 5th Day of Pre-Christmas, My 6th Day of Pre-Christmas, My 7th Day of Pre-Christmas, My 8th Day of Pre-Christmas, My 9th Day of Pre-Christmas, My 10th Day of Pre-Christmas, and My 11th Day of Pre-Christmas. This of course all leads up to the 12th and final Pre-Day of Christmas.....



On My 12th Day of Pre-Christmas, my mental scrapbook gave to me,
12 things to be thankful for
...11 hours of gift wrapping
......10 gestures of goodwill (or close to 10)
.........9 hours of volunteer work
............8 hours of pole-vaulting kitties
...............7 hoards of humbugs
..................6 pesky telemarketing calls
.....................5 HOURS OF TREE DECORATING
........................a 4 dollar Charlie Brown tree
...........................3 truckloads of food
..............................2 pooped people with tired bodies
.................................and a brand new king size bed.


The 12th Day of Pre-Christmas. It's finally here. Can you believe it? I can't, but it is here. We are going to be spending part of it doing a little road show with the various parts of families that we both have, so, as Willie sings 'On the Road Again........' and that's where we'll be. Maybe I'll be able to blog, and maybe I won't, but you'll for sure have the 12 Pre-Days of Christmas to giggle and think about.

For this final pre-day, I was thinking about how lucky I am, and thankful. People make a lot of our world go around, otherwise we'd be living in a vacuum (or a goldfish bowl).

Here's why:
*~* Thankful for my cousins (we're not numerous, but we have buckets of love).

*~* Thankful for my married family (it's just like having siblings!).

*~* Thankful for our long-time friends, friends that were once neighbours and then became friends).

*~* Thankful that we have great sailing friends (this is a whole community in itself, and we are so lucky to be a part of it).

*~* Thankful for my number one gym buddy Lutador (you know who you are!).....

*~* Thankful for all of the other gym buddies, of which they are numerous, from Combat to Cycling to Pump to Attack.

*~* Thankful for our great neighbours.

*~* Thankful for our political buddies, to whom we have grown quite close.

*~* Thankful for my WW buddies, and 2 really fine leaders (you know who you are too!).

*~* Thankful for my blogworld buddies (I feel like I know you all so well, and we've never even met).

*~* Thankful for my 2 adorable, almost human kitty kats, BJ and CoCo.

*~* Thankful for My Sweetie, because none of the above would be possible or as much fun if he weren't part of it.

So, to anyone who is reading this post, whether you're part of the above or not, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you.

Merry Pre-Christmas!
