pest or pill?

I am trying to stay positive for the New Year and "trying" to "feel" excited but January has always been a hard month for me.  I always look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas and we all prepare for these waaay in advance.  For Christmas we purchase gifts and decorate preparing for 24 hours of bliss, and then its over.  And all Christmas day I am thinking; "savor this, its only one day, its almost over."  I can't even enjoy it.  I know I am a little nuts, but I think Christmas needs to be at least a week long of celebration with all the preparation we do for it.  Thanksgiving is not too bad because when its over I still have Christmas to prepare and look forward to.   
And how can I be depressed when I have these two goofballs around ALL THE TIME.  Children are literally right on you every second asking questions, wanting milk, or just wanting to be with you.  I really want to savor that, because when they get older they won't want to be around me as much.  And with Mr. Know-it-All thrown into the mix I have all the testosterone, mess, and needy boys I can handle. 

My pastor at church today got me thinking about how I can make 2011 more productive for Jesus than 2010.  This really got me thinking and convicted about how I really live my life on a daily basis.  What is my purpose?  I really think when my dad and I pray in the morning before work we need to pray for Jesus to give us our purpose with the cabinet shop.  I think that is where I will start.   

I will be back at work tomorrow thinking about my purpose and getting my butt in gear.  I am trying to get our product into the Williams-Sonoma catalog and  I will tell you right now its going to be tough.  It has to be a perfect fit for the brand, something new, and I am not sure what else, my name needs to be April Williams, just kidding.  I am going to be a "nice pest" is what my dad said.  Are there "nice pests" or just "pests?"  I don't know, maybe I will just be a pill.

  1. You could consider celebrating Kwanzaa, thus giving you more days of celebration beyond Christmas! :)
