An Ode to Nasty Commenters

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you...nasty commenters included.

If going around peoples' blogs and leaving nasty, ugly comments is your thing...just remember that what goes around comes around eventually.

I try to keep my blog positive rather than spend all my time complaining about the stupidity of others, but I thought I would give a shout-out to the negative people out there.

If you want to leave nasty comments about perfect strangers, the least you could do is NOT hide behind a nickname and a private profile so that we are unable to track you down and courteously thank you for bringing such joy to our lives.

Scaredy cat.

No Excuses

So much for making time to write on my blog each week!

I have not updated since the beginning of November because of a whirlwind of school-related projects, work-related drama and some personal projects that took precedence due to so many impending deadlines!

Today is the day when the kids and I leave for the USA! We will be visiting family and friends for two weeks, and Yusuke will join us mid-next week to celebrate Xmas with my family.

Up until today, I was running around like a headless chicken during the day and collapsing from exhaustion at night. This week, in between packing, I decided that making this lay out was essential because when I get back in January and feel refreshed, I will have forgotten some of these pertinent details of what made the last two months so amazing and so hellish all the same time.

Please click on the lay out to see it in more detail and to read the Journaling.

Merry Xmas to Everyone...I hope to write more in the next couple weeks if I have some downtime. I have just been given two homework assignments though - read a novel for class and write a report for the Board of Education. It never ends.

(The template used for the lay out was designed by Cathy Zielske, and the digital papers and elements are from a kit called "Make a Change" by L Banasiak.)
