Urs,

I'm so glad to know you and call you my friend. You are probably the kindest and my loving person I've ever met. Thank you for your friendship and caring. I appreciate it more than you know.

Love,
Kate

P.S. Click the cut for something ridiculous.

Happy birthday, Urs! I will make you a pretty post when I get home, but I didn't want you to think I'd forgotten about you. I hope you're feeling better and mending well. *snuggles*





(On a non-birthday related note, I got some of my Christmas pressies mailed and got stamps for my international cards. The next shipment of pressies will probably not be until Monday, so everything will be late, but they'll get there eventually. Additionally, I've not been good about acknowledging the mail I've received. I will remedy that tonight or this weekend. Please don't think I'm unappreciative, I love my friends and every card makes me giddy. I'm just very disorganized this year.)
I had a GYN appointment this morning. Fabulous way to start your day, let me tell you. Now I'm about to actually go to work. Any minute now I'll be heading out the door. Really.

Bah. I'm tired. Wish I could curl up in bed for a little while before heading in, but I really shouldn't.

I've not yet mailed the gifts that I need to mail. Not that there are a lot of them, since I'm low on funds this year. Anyway, they'll probably be late. Ditto for my out-of-country cards. I haven't made it to the PO to get appropriate stamps, so they've not gone out yet either. I'm working on it.

Need to finish my ficmas story and get it betaed for Saturday.

Also need to finish Christmas shopping. I've got Mer mostly done, but there are a few others (Mom, Sher, Pike, Maiken, etc...) for whom I still have to buy gifts.

Need to help Mer with the gifts she's making. Yes, making. We'll see if we can get finished by Sunday.

Aargh. Gotta run. Wish I could nap. Starbucks is inevitable and justified.

*love to Urs*

First things first - URS!!!!! I got my present today! Thank you SO MUCH! You are really too sweet. *glomps and huggles* *loves*

Second, I came across something my granddad had written for my mom when she was going to college. She was doing some project on the Depression and asked my grandparents to share their experiences. I've typed it in here because every time I read it it makes me smile. Granddad had a wonderful sense of humor, and he loved to tell stories. It also reminds me just how blessed I've been in my life. As bad as I've thought my financial problems were, I've never had to worry about food and shelter. I've always had some place or person I could fall back on.

Anyway, for those who are interested, here is my Granddaddy Brown's account of the Great Depression. I've made minor spelling changes, but these are his words.

Story time! )

A great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [livejournal.com profile] heyurs!

I will make a prettier post when I get home tonight, but I wanted to say how very glad I am to have you as my friend.

And today you get to open pressies! YAY!

*LOVES*

Hooray for MAIL! When I finally got home around 8:30 this evening, James said, "I'm jealous of you. You have three cards in the mail." And I DID! [livejournal.com profile] heyurs sent me a super nice card that made me feel all warm and loved, and I got Christmas cards with very sweet messages from [livejournal.com profile] castoffstarter and [livejournal.com profile] rainpuddle13! What a great way to end a very long day!

Now I just need to get on the stick and mail out my Christmas stuff.

In life news, my grandmother is out of the hospital. She's staying in a nursing home for the next two weeks to finish recuperating. Apparently she got a nurse in the ICU fired. I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but I'll share when I find out more.

Mom is flying home on Wednesday, so I only have to feed the kitty tomorrow night and then pick Mom and Kenny up from the airport at lunchtime Wednesday. I love my family, and my mom's cat, but I'll be very glad to be done with that extra driving every night. And Punkin (the cat) is lonely, so she'll be happy to have company again.

Last night Becky started bleeding a little and went to the hospital. She and the babies seem to be fine, but she's on medical leave until her OB clears her to come back to work. She had an appointment scheduled for Wednesday anyway, so she'll probably be back to work on Thursday. Aside from having a fright, the biggest concern Becky has is that they did a sonogram at the hospital which means she probably won't have one at her appointment like she was supposed to, and she had hoped to get more pictures from it. The hospital, of course, is not set up for that sort of thing.

I have to say, far too many people I know have been in the hospital in the past few weeks. Nobody else can be ill! *points authoritative finger at you all*

I finally turned in my exchange fic this weekend. I was not very happy with it. I'm hoping my dgsmuttakah story turns out better.

I need Christmas-y icons.

That's all for now.

*hugs to all*

Woot! I got mail from my darling [livejournal.com profile] heyurs! It made my night! Thank you, hun! Hearing from you always brightens my day.

I really, truly, have the best friends. I feel very blessed to have you all in my life.

I'm off to bed now. Maybe I can read just a little, but not so much that I'm up until 1:30 or 2:00. Again.

Time management skills. How I need you!
