Yay! Christmas is here early! Only a week left 'til 'Noel'--wonder if we'll get any "samplin's" early??? Perhaps another Thursday surprise??? Would be very exciting!

I'm already excited--I finished the 25th little girls' jumper this morning! 25 dresses in under 2 weeks...am I allowed to say I'm tired? But it's a good tired. A very satisfying tired. I'm getting ready to work on some "tags" for them with the laundering directions, my logo (when I get it designed...), ordering info. (in case someone wants me to make something else for them...), and price--all the necessary details to be "in business". I have absolutely no idea how to handle the tax stuff for anything like this...or if I even have to worry about it...it's very different from the pre-arranged tax benefits of Mary Kay, that's for sure!!! Makes me appreciate how easy MK makes it for everybody!

I am dealing with "family drama" again...trying really hard to keep focused, though, on the things important to me and my immediate family, though. It is just so disheartening (to say the least) when people absolutely refuse to and WILL NOT see the other person's perspective. What ever happened to respect, encouragement, and as the Bible puts it, "longsuffering"????? You would think that it wouldn't be too much to ask someone that should REALLY know you--like since birth--to actually have an intellectual dialogue with real communication! I know I am not perfect. Not by a long shot. I am and will always be a work in progress, that's for sure! But when I KNOW by the Bible and God as my witness that I haven't done anything wrong in a particular instance, how in the world do I get through to someone who refuses to see???

I am sorry to vent--haven't had a dose of "Machine" today...otherwise the frustration would have been absorbed by the vocals of JOSH! :) And I know I'm extremely vague considering I think this is my first blog about any of my family drama. It's been going on since March, though--right after I got back from the Atlanta concert, as a matter of fact--and I'm just about sick to death of it. People that have the same blood running through their veins as I do that act so differently...oh...there's so much more I'd like to say...but...for now I won't. It's late, and I don't want to get fired up right before bed...

Back to Josh...

I would love to know if maybe, along with some of these promos for the Christmas album, there might be a Christmas concert or two he might do? Probably not. But I'd still like to know about after the new year!

Well, Craig's waiting on me to watch the episode of House from tonight...gotta go...
