There are no forms to fill out regarding income, etc. You simply find a local church where they offer the program, put in the order, pay upfront and in a week or two the order comes in.
Check out the site and be sure to pass it along to anyone you think may be interested!

With that being said, I have a railing in my upstairs living room and I use wire ties to hold in place my lighted garland (the thick plastic ones that you slip through and pull to tighten), these need to be cut off when you are done with them. So I can't find the kitchen scissors, but being the genius I am I find the sharpest knife we have and decide to use that to cut off each wire tie.. Do you see where this is going? I slip the knife under the first wire tie and pull hard toward myself... all of a sudden it all goes wrong. The knife successfully cuts through the wire tie, while also bouncing back into my left index finger. I drop the knife, hold my hand and do the nervous jumpy, hoppy dance around the living room while chanting "I am so stupid, gosh, this is so dumb. Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god." When I gather the courage to look at my finger, there is a nice looking purple and blue bruise and a nice deep cut, it doesn't bleed at first and then it was like I parted the red sea! I wrap it in paper towels, and the bleeding is not stopping, so I do the only thing I can. I called my mommy. She lives around the corner from me and thank goodness because she was there in a flash and fixed me all up!
No stitches! Thanks mom!
I also realized this year that gifts are not special because of the amount spent, but because of the people that give them to you. The person that thought enough about you, to buy you something that you wouldn't have gotten for yourself. Of course let's also be honest and say, we all probably recieved something less than stellar, but smiled graciously and returned it! LOL This happens, but hey its all a part of the crazy holiday season.
I will also admit that amongst Christmas songs and FA LA LAs I said a curse word or two because someone cut me off on the road, or stole my spot in line at Walmart.. :-)
For New Year's we are staying home and enjoying either pizza, chicken or some other reasonably priced meal that will include champagne, and other goodies.
A HAPPY, HEALTHY PROSPEROUS 2009 TO EVERYONE!

Chocolate, a second on the lips, forever on the hips. I have gotten so MUCH chocolate from vendors for the holidays I don't even know what to do with it, other than to regift it, or give it away! I am very appreciative, but I just find it so ironic that in January everyone will be on the healthy kick, and all the while we have stuffed our faces full of chocolates with unknown fillings.. That mystery always makes me laugh, some companies refuse to use the ever useful map and so you go through biting your way through a few different ones to find what you want. Good grief! I am going to hide this most recent gift and do my best not to eat every last morsel. Wish me luck and hey, if you want some of it, I will be happy to share!
