How Many Sleeps Till Christmas...

I was poking around the Internet tonight looking for inspiring ideas for the holidays when I came across several websites featuring widgets that count the days, hours and minutes until Christmas.

I was distressed to see there are, at this writing, only 72 days left until Christmas. I am not ready for this. This year has been somewhat chaotic in my life. I thought 2007 was bad, 2008 is worse! Sickness, lots of travel, kids moving out, husband leaving job. I'm just not ready for Christmas!

I am, however, ready to annoy all my friends and family with it by placing countdown widgets on my blog. Not that the world will notice; in over a year I've had only 239 visitors and most of those views were probably generated by my incessant previewing after placing new items in the sidebar.

That's about all I have to say for now. I'm tired and ready for sleep. I have a big day tomorrow, getting the house ready for a sitter and getting ready for my big airplane trip.

Good-night everyone!

Good night
Sleep Tight
Don't let the
Bed bugs bite

And if they do
Take your Shoe
Beat 'em till
They're black and blue.
