I ♥ You One and All!

Well friends, here we are- one day past Christmas 2012. Really, where does the time go? It seems like it was only last year. Does time go fast wherever you are?

We are now back home. We were at my in-laws Christmas eve and my son remarked that he had few gifts only. Actually its shaping up to be a rather bittersweet Christmas for us this year. We`re still getting over our debts. I worked out this plan of paying all our arrears and never to use, charged any purchases to credit cards. You know those pesky cards? And using our present money means no frequent shopping, no movies, no travel. Don't get me wrong. I've not completely gone grinch  -- let's just say I've mastered the art of thrifting, and my catchphrase has become, "it’s the thought that counts” when buying gifts.

And I won. I have never charged anything to credit. I paid cash up to the last centavo. And it was good.  I did not make any major purchases but I`m quite sure things can wait.

So to all my friends, almost friends, and far from being friend.
To my silent readers, the excellent followers and people who appreciated my humor, sentiments, and fears that are all over Thinking Outloud. I am so grateful that you've welcomed my little blog into your life with such open arms. I wouldn't want anyone else sharing this amazing adventure with me, so THANK YOU!!!!

To my friend Margj, who did not only lend me her loyalty but also her generosity all the way down to my family.

Here’s to the merriest season and the coming of a new brilliant year and the eating of too much sweets, slash chocolate slash fruit cake

I hope you have a wonderful holiday, wherever you are.

P.S. Dear Zumba, lets meet again when Ì`m ready, okay?
