Happy Sunday + Race to “Runaway Bride” Giveaway #3 winner
Happy Sunday! The very last Sunday of 2013—can you believe it? I have to admit, I’m not terribly happy about that. :whaaat
But this week I AM HAPPY that Christmas went off without a hitch. Give or take. :snowballfight
Madame Mommy Dearest wasn’t quite as enthusiastic about her gift as I expected her to be, but it’s growing on her. She claims her lack of gratitude was shock & the fear of using such an impressive appliance. So we’ll see how she reacts after she’s had a little more time to get used to it. :lightman
I AM HAPPY that even though Santa didn’t bring me anything big or flashy, I still received a few very nice prezzies that brought a smile to my face. :reindeergift
I AM HAPPY that Christmas dinner was delicious & the yummy leftovers are still being enjoyed. :clink
And I AM HAPPY that most of the bestest holiday movies & specials were on this year, so I was able to record them & them watch them on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day to help put me in even more of the holiday spirit. (Not that I don’t have most of them on DVD, but I like catching them. And I’m still watching Scrooged, actually.) The only one that wasn’t on this year is Elf. What the hell is with that, people? WTH?! :madsnowman
And finally, I AM HAPPY to announce the winner of “Race to RUNAWAY BRIDE” Giveaway #3—a signed copy of my very first holiday-themed Harlequin Desire, INHERITING HIS SECRET CHRISTMAS BABY…

Good luck getting organized, Hollie! If you manage it, please pass along your tips because I can never seem to stick with that resolution myself. :snowballfight

Congrats to Judi!
I’m blessed to have a kind hearted son. For Christmas he wanted to get less presents if I would allow him to send a care package to an army troop. He choose a group of 15 soldiers stationed in Afghanistan. He choose a bunch of goodies, playing cards, and made them a Christmas card. I hope they received it by now.

That is so awesome, Tammy! What a sweet gesture. :candycane
I’m with him—it’s getting to the point where there’s nothing that we really need, so why waste money just to have something to open? That’s why I sometimes give the bare minimum, but donate buckets to animal organizations & such. I also help MMD with stuffing stockings for soldiers via one of her groups, so we’re on the same page there. :winkcookie
That troop will be so delighted with your son’s package. Even if it arrives a little late, they’ll totally make use of everything, I’m sure—& be hugely appreciative!

I am happy that I met my new neighbor that just moved in and i don’t think she’s a crackhead like the people that moved out last month. lol Maybe there won’t be any cops called for a while…

Oh, I hope you got a great new neighbor. I feel your bad-neighbor pain, believe me. :whaaat I live for the day a couple of mine leave & PRAY whoever replaces them are 100% better.

I think Elf was only on Starz this holiday season, because my cousins were complaining about it not being on either. (They watched it on Christmas Eve, which is an annual tradition).
I’m thankful for my family, having a job where I work with a mostly great group of people and for my friends, both on and offline.

You’re totally right, Dee. It was only on Starz, but they played it for 2 days straight. I don’t get Starz, so I was bummed it wasn’t on regular cable, like last year when it was on USA constantly. Not that I don’t have it on DVD, but still… :madsnowman
