Ho, Ho, Holy Crap ... Again!

Almost a year ago to the day, I posted this poem.  I was stressed.  I was poor.  Christmas was less than a week away and I was ready for the year to end.  Sadly, a year later, things haven't changed much.  Luckily for me, my kids haven't changed much either.  Well... they got bigger.  However, their values are just as strong as ever.  As eldest confirmed just the other day, Christmas is about family.  Everything else is extra.  Well put. 
And now, a sad reblog post of  Ho, Ho, Holy Crap!   Merry Chirstmas Y'all.

Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop and Prompts - 5 Things

For months now, I have been receiving updates from one of the best blogs in the world via my email.  There is no better way to follow a blog than to get it in your email. (Coincidentally, you can follow this blog the same way. *shameless plug/hint*)  The blog is called Mama's Losin' It and is wrtten by Mama Kat, a hilarious blogger who won me over when she shared how even I could rock bangs.  This beauty secret had me at hello.  Then her Writer's Workshop inspired me to dream of one day actually following a prompt.  (I told you I was lazy.)

That changed today.  I read a prompt I felt I could actually pull off!
