12 Days of Christmas

I have been sitting in front of the computer for about two hours reading all the journals I love and needed catching up on.  I have so much running around in my head, how I have come to care about so many of you guys. It is almost an emotional gauntlet.

Today is the last of the Christmas get togethers, ending at my Mothers in about three hours.  I still need to get my butt to Krogers and purchase the ingredients for candied yams and cook them.  I will make it, I have it down to a science.  Plus, Mom lives five minute from here.

And then, the big UK verses UofL game at five pm!  I have a tough time knowing who to cheer for, since I've had a crush on Rick Pitino since I first laid eyes on him in the late 80's when he saved the UK team from ruin.  Now, in this area, he is considered a traitor for returning to college B-Ball and of all the dag gone teams, to pick Louisville!  What an insult to UK (this is about 85% of UK fans talking, not me, I LOVE it).  Secretly, I will cheer for Louisville, outwardly I will need to watch when I say, "Damn!" and "Hooray!".

I know what you mean. I've been away for about 5 days and I couldn't wait to start getting caught up. It's going to take awhile. There are so many of these journals that I enjoy. They make me think and feel and laugh. Who knew how easily we would open up to one another - and become so important in each others lives.
