Holiday Tradition

To make the holiday a little brighter I'm spreading around the Xmas cheer, or rather the holiday themed blog posts. Go read a little about a particular family tradition of ours at my friend Bart's blog Crazywhack Shiznit for Your Brizzle. While you're at it, don't forget to wish him, his wife, and new baby girl Merry Christmas!

I'm off now to wrap presents before heading off to the hospital while attempting to not channel Scrooge.

Happy Holidays!

Oh, here's a little something I forgot to add to my post over at Bart's!

An Award and a Meme

Many thanks to LizSara for gifting me with this award! I'm not sure than I'm that deserving of it considering my lack of substantial (or any!) posting lately. Skip on over to visit my favorite Brit Blogger!

Here are the rules for this award: Pick 5 blogs you love and pass this award on to them as I pass it on to you. Don’t forget to link back.

I'm passing this one to 5 times 2 bloggers, one of whom gave it to me (because even though I lurk more than comment, i love to read her blog)! But I'm giving the award with a price . . . read on . . .

In other news, hold on to your hats folks! Diane over at the Mommy Diaries tagged me for this meme:

1) Take a picture of yourself right NOW!

2) DON'T change your clothes, DON'T fix your hair... Just take a picture.

3) Post that picture with NO editing.

4) Post these instruction with your picture.

5)Tag 10 people to do this..

so you're going to get a glimpse of CelticBuffy, live and in person! (drum roll please . . .)

Yes, this is me, scrubs and all, just home from a shift at the hospital. Oh so lovely and tre chic! Green is a Christmas color so at least I fit with the season. LOL.

Not only do I tag these lovely bloggers, I'm also passing along the above award to them also (with an extra one going to Diane):









*Bohemian Single Mom

*Juice Notlaw

*If you're reading this consider yourself tagged and post a link in the comments so that I can see you too! If you blog anonymously, like I do, be more creative than me in taking a photo while disguising yourself! Have fun! :)

Bah Humbug

The title says it all folks. That's how I've been feeling the last few weeks. I've not been posting because I feel down and what I would write would be negative, whiny, and depressing. Not to mention bitchy.

I need to break through this fog so that I can write again and at least be mildly entertaining. So, don't worry, I'm still here, still reading other blogs, and trying to sleep my way through December.

Creativity? What's That?

Well hello there! I'm somewhat surprised that you're still here, even though I haven't been around much for the past month. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

The new job is going well. It's crazy, exhausting, busy, demanding, and challenging but, wow, am I learning a lot! Talk about great preparation for nursing school! The physical activity of this job is seriously kicking my butt. My body feels like I've been beaten when I wake every morning. Perhaps a new mattress would help?

Anyway, I do like the job. I don't like the pay. I knew going in how much of a pay cut I'd be taking and am wondering how crazy I must be to voluntarily slash my income like this. Granted I'm paying for health insurance and that cuts some of the take home pay. I wonder, though, how finances are going to go over the next couple of years, especially with the mounting medical bills.

As for Anime, a rheumatologist in our area has accepted her as a patient. The downside is that we can't get in until April. The initial appointment is not one that can be easily scheduled as I've been informed that we can expect to be there for most of the day (appointment time is 8 AM). I'm still looking into rheumatologists outside of our area.

I feel as if my creativity has abandoned be as of late. My desire to write, or even dream, has fled for the time being. If you see it, send it back my way would you please?
