Miscellany Monday...

Happy Monday. It is the start of a new week and one week closer to Christmas. I say that and I can't believe the Holidays are approaching as quickly as they are. It is scaring me a bit, I have to say. Anyway, on to some random musings for this Monday.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

ONE. We were at a birthday party over the weekend for one of Christopher's friends. There happened to be a bunch of older boys there. Christopher tends to gravitate towards them for some reason. I sat from a distance and watched them interact. The boys were running around and hitting eachother with blow up guitars. Kind of using them as weapons. Are all boys just born with the natural instinct to be wild and crazy? I was one of four girls so growing up we were all pretty tame. Sometimes I just get overwhelmed with all of the wrestling and fighting, toy guns and pure nuttiness. I think I am going to need many a spa weekends for myself being the only girl in the house : )

TWO. I have to say, I have always been pretty much a reality tv junkie. But I think I have finally been taken to rehab. My sewing has been keeping me so busy that I have not watched any of my favorite tv shows. I have not seen one episode of Desperate Housewives, Brothers and Sisters or Dancing with the Stars this season. I may be having slight withdrawals, but learning a new skill is a much better high : )

THREE. As I have discovered the wonderful world of Etsy and some fabulous inspirational craft blogs, it raises a question. Do you think people really value handmade gifts? Or would they rather have the latest and greatest of what the rest of mainstream people are geting for the holidays?

Hope you all have a great day...

Oh my gosh I am so far behind in my TV watching. My problem is the blog, though. Our DVR is actually almost 80% full right now. And believe it or not, we JUST finished watching shows from last season. I really miss watching TV. Most of all I miss my time with Brian just relaxing. I am getting ready to take a much needed blog break. :-)

Do people really value handmade gifts? I really think it depends what it is. If it is something that is nice, and that you can use, then the answer is yes! I would gladly take anything that you have made. ;-) Brian's aunts have made quilts for us and the kids and they are really nice. But I have received a few handmade things that I honestly had to ask what it was. And then there were a few things that were just horrible. I hate having to pretend I love it. LOL

Have a great week!
