December Already?!?!?!

I can't believe December is here already, but it's time to link back up with Farley and celebrate what's happening Currently.

I'm Listening to some retro music tunes from the 70's and 80's as I link up this month.  I didn't get to link up in November because my computer was down and out for the count, but now I'm Loving my brand new machine my husband built for me.  It is super fast and ultra quiet and has tons of memory for all my new and upcoming projects.

Birthday plans are on my mind as my birthday is two days after Christmas and I've been challenged to come up with something special to do for the day.  Usually my birthday stinks, as everyone is all pre-occupied with Christmas and their budgets are maxed out from the holiday, but I'm determined to not have a crummy day again.  Now I just have to decide what to do which will leave me feeling happy and content with the day.

Overall I don't want much of anything for Christmas this year, but I sure would love a maid for the new year.  My husband said that they're 100% tax deductible, maybe because I work from home or something.  I definitely would love to get in on that deal.

Most of all, what I need are healthy pets.  We have an 18 year old cat that is semi-incontinent and is driving me bonkers.  I've even considered putting diapers on the cat, but I value my life too much.  And now our bull dog has some digestive ailment as well as pneumonia.  Not only does it put a huge strain on our heart strings to be dealing with these crises, but it's also putting a huge strain on my Christmas budget right now.  I just need to pick up the dog from the doctor today and have everything be on the way to mending.
And lastly, our tree, when we finally get one, will be real.  We always buy Frasier Firs because they have nice short soft needles.  We had to use a fake tree for 3 years when our last pup had an allergy to pine, and it just didn't feel the same.


  1. Love your dog! Poor animals. That's hard. I hope they start getting better soon.

  2. Hope your dog feels better and your birthday is great! You aren't the first person to write that they want a maid today (and I wish I could have one too).

  3. Oh no! I hope your pets feel better! And I'd love to see a diapered cat! ;)
    I agree real is just better then fake!

  4. I want a maid, too!!! Our cat is 16 years old. She just likes to sit on your lap and get lots of pets :) I hope your cat gets better. It is so hard when pets are sick because they are family members, too!

  5. Oh. My. Goodness! You and I are practically the same person! My birthday is actually ON Christmas Day so I totally get what you are saying. My family almost always makes sure I have a birthday cake! Now, let's talk about ailing pets! Are you kidding? Just in the last month we have started giving two insulin shots a day to my oldest cat and he goes in for glucose checks weekly. We are still experimenting with his dosages and hopefully we can even out the levels and maintain his health with diet! Wow! I hope yours are better soon and you have a great December and birthday!
