Finally, a Post!

It’s been a while since I did a post!

That’s because I’ve had waaaay too much to do and just trying to keep up with my reader has been difficult.

So here’s what I’ve been doing:

– completing courses that will lead to a major career change. I have a break coming up but I have to study for a big test. Sob.

– working, and right now it’s crazy at work although the end is in sight.

-getting ready for Christmas – and ready to explode because of it.

-shovelling snow. Actually, no. M has been doing that. It’s made me swear a lot, though. The snow, not M.

-whining about snow. Yes, that would be true.

-whining about the cold. Yup. Actually, maybe I should explode. At least that would be warm. And, isn’t this time of year supposed to generate warmth around my heart cockles? What are cockles, anyway? If I didn’t know better, I would say that they’re teeny tiny c***s.

-whining about having to dodge snowbanks while out in the cold on my way to the mall. Yay.

– whining about being overworked and tired. Check.

– whining about hearing “The Little Drummer Boy” for the 1, 274, 451 st time. If I catch him, I’m going to shove those drum sticks down his weird little throat. He should be playing computer games, not following babies and playing his drum for them.

– whining about that creepy little oaf, er, elf, who keeps trailing people around the mall and squawking at them in a high-pitched voice to buy stuff.

-whining. Really, the only whine I want comes out of a bottle. The whine that comes out of me is boring. But I have to. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be me.

And I gotta be me. Who else would want the job?

What delicious pre-Christmas things have you been up to?

  1. Feel like breaking into song I gotta be me!!!! Oh you had me laughing at the cockles – they are..a mollusc … like mussels (I think) loved this post and your whining… try not to cry when your studying – and I knew you will do well πŸ™‚ xxx

    • Oh thank you, Jen! πŸ™‚ I wonder where the expression “the cockles of my heart” comes from? Funny, huh? Cockles must have been considered to be a delicacy, I guess. I appreciate your confidence in me and I’ll remember that big girls don’t cry! πŸ˜‰

  2. Happy Christmas Lynette. I’ve missed your posts and now that I know you’ve been studying it makes me feel honoured that you’ve been visiting me! Hope you get a well earned break till the new year. ‘See’ you on the other side, 2014, hopefully for more laughs πŸ™‚

  3. I love your style so much. And may the good times and treasures of the present become the golden memories of tomorrow. Wish you lots of love, joy and happiness. MERRY CHRISTMAS. !

  4. I realized I hadn’t written a new blog post in 3 months, but then I’m feeling All of the Above about my job and school this year. I’m seriously considering the next phase of my life, but trying to think of it more like Dr. Who’s regeneration (minus the fez).

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
