Getting To Know Me

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't overeat too much. lol I had a nice quiet day at home watching TV & doing some stitching. My DS & DDIL invited me to go with them to my DDIL's aunt's home, but I preferred to spend the day at home. I had a turkey dinner delivered by our local Knights of Columbus (they do this every year for the elderly & needy people in our town).

I received an email from Meari & Glenda and decided to answer in my blog rather than sending emails to everyone. So here goes.....

Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends. Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!!

Just copy this entire email and paste into a new email that you can send. Change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know, INCLUDING the person that sent it to you.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Either/Both

21. Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas Eve or as soon as I receive something in the mail (I'm not good at waiting)
22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? All the build up about the "wonderful & happy" family gatherings, blah-blah-blah (which don't happen in the real world), greediness, commercialism, and my depression being worse during this time of year
23. Favorite ornament theme or color? blue and silver (just like Glenda), but really love all the homemade items (esp cross stitch)
24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? Ham with all the fixings
25. What do you want for Christmas this year? Peace throughout the world and for the economy to get better, people to get jobs again & stop losing their homes.
26. Who is most likely to respond to this? Have no clue whatsoever

PS - I'm adding one last item to this list. What am I looking forward to in 2009? Seeing an end to the reign of King George & all his cronies!!!!! Yes, there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel and I can have hope for the future again. Bout time!!!

Have a terrific weekend everyone and thanks for visiting my blog. Barb
