Bah Humbug, No HFCS and some links for you…

Been a while since I’ve updated yet again… life is just busy with lots to do, and honestly I’m in like a depressed funk with these holidays…

With my Mom and Grandma dying this year I just don’t feel festive at all, it just won’t be the same. usually at Thanksgiving we all went to my Grandmas for dinner and here an my Mom cooked, this year I spent it at home. I do have other family nearby, but I don’t speak to them since the funerals, let’s just say that they did something unforgiveable to me and my brother concerning my Mom and Grandma, and leave it at that…

and of course Christmas won’t be the same as well, no gifts from Grandma for my kids, no cookies, no sweets, none of that made by Grandma for them… and well I won’t have my Mom or Grandma this year..

…but with me being basically the only one working really it’s hard to pay the bills.

Every bill I have is late, and it’s not because I’m buying things I don’t need, it’s because I don’t make enough money to cover them so Christmas isn’t going to be very nice for my kids, and I feel really bad I can’t get them the things they want… They’re too young to understand about money really.. they’re young so they expect Santa Claus to take care of them really, but Santa is broke this year apparently…

So I’m pretty much very depressed, I can’t sleep and honestly I don’t feel like doing anything at all, and I just can’t wait until the holidays are over with… I hate them more now than ever…  there supposed to be this wonderful time of the year, but that’s for people that have money apparently, and have their families still around..


Anyway, I found my local super market Giant Eagle now carries good Iced Tea, and it’s HFCS free!

They carry several flavors, but I only tried the regular tea and the southern style, I like the southern style the best. I love it actually, I’ve given up Coca-Cola in favor of this tea…

    I’m sorry about that, it must be tough doing Christmas with young children and not much money because it has become such a commercial time – buying presents from shops has become the thing that ‘everyone’ does for Christmas. I hope you can enjoy Christmas anyway and it could be good for your kids to learn that they can have a fun and creative Christmas without all the presents that they “really, really” want. In my home we try to give away as much money as we spend on presents at Christmas time – so the kids and relatives receive a lot of “goats” and “school books” (from World Vision gifts), as well as Kiva vouchers. They are the best gifts, really. It’s important that the kids know that not everybody can celebrate Christmas like we tend to do. I would love to do a Christmas where we didn’t give any real presents, we only gave each other homemade gifts or donations like World Vision Gifts for Life.
