Random Tuesday

I put up some Christmas decorations last night, actually I put them all up except for our tree. This is huge for me, cause I'm kinda a scrooge and don't really care for Christmas (my standard disclaimer: I love what Christmas stands for, I hate what it has become). Anyway, I thought Natalee would enjoy the Christmas cheer, so I did it... and I was right. But, I'm going to have to hide the presents cause she thinks everything is her present.

I'm feeling totally overwhelmed by all the requests to help the needy this holiday season. Usually I love to help, this year it feels almost suffocating. Probably because I don't have the money to help this year.

Do you sensor what you blog because you know who is reading it, or who might be reading it? I totally do. I wish I didn't... I need an anonymous blog so I can just go on and on about anything I want.

Lately I spend a lot of time worrying about what I'll do with Natalee if I go into labor in the middle of the night. It's totally stressing me out, I need to make a game plan and talk to the other people that will be involved and be done with it. I'm afraid if I ask someone they will be like "3 am? Hell no I won't help you!" and then I'll be even more stressed.

I want to make a Christmas table cloth, and a Christmas table runner (for different tables), maybe I'll work on that tonight, maybe not.

I'm trying to not be all down and negative here, so this is all I got today. What is random in your life right now? Check out the UnMom for more...

I'm at the point where I've given up on christmas decor.

I hate being poor! I would totally take your kid at 3am.

And I wish I had an anonymous blog too. That's why I email you.

Well - add me to that POOR club!!
And don't worry about Natalee-you just call me and Brandy a couple days before you are going to go into labor at 3am - send her to us and she will have a BLAST with us!! No worries!!! HA!

1. Christmas decor - need to do that. I still have some of our "fall" stuff out. Maybe this weekend...

2. I know what you mean about feeling overwhelmed with requests to help this time of year. It seems like every couple of days at work people are asking for another $5 or $10 or $20. I wish I could do it all.

3. I totally sensor what I blog. Mostly because Hubs is really sensitive about what I put out there.

4. Good luck with your middle of the night labor plan - if you want to put Natalee on a plane, I could help!

Have a good day. I will spend it "on vacation" doing laundry after Munchie's all night puke fest.

I know what you are going through with the worry of what to do with your first child when you second arrives. Been there, done that. Just hope that everything goes great for you too! :o)

I'm also overwhelmed by charity requests. All year round, really, but especially now. I just firmly tell people that we've already determined which causes to give to, as there are so many deserving organizations but I'm on a budget.

Anonymity is good. But more and more people are figuring out who I am, so that makes me censor things a bit more. Ick.

I didn't know you sew! I'm excited for your table cloth and runner, and I demand pictures. Because I am demanding. It's part of my charm.

I never used to sensor what I said on my blog. I would talk about things between my husband and I - nothing bad, fun stuff - because he never read it anyway but then a mutual friend who DOES read my blog always went up to my hubby at work and brought up stuff. Now, I keep a lid on a lot of things. :(

There was a point that I sorta sensored my blog but got over because I blog for me, it's just an added bonus when people want to read it. Now, that being said... I do not give out my blog address to my family! haha I don't say anything on my blog I wouldn't say to them but I guess I worry what they will think of me. I'm weird.

Colleen said...

I totally sensor my blog. Too many family members read it. :P

I hope you find someone to watch Natalee if you go into labor in the middle of the night. I would... but it might be a bit of a drive. :)

Melissa said...

I totally sensor my blog. I wish I didn't. In fact, that's the main reason I don't blog as much as I'd like. It's really hard to pretend like nothing's going on...

I've been decorating for Christmas for two weeks. I hope to be done by the end of the day.

I'm sure that anyone you trust enough to ask them to take care of Natalee, will not bat an eye at taking here anytime! It's not like you're going shopping, you're having a baby for crying out loud!
