Please, Let Me Explain!! :(

Dear Ones, I'm so sorry for being so out of it this weekend. I posted my Blue Monday on Pink Saturday! I don't know if I'm coming or going! Our house has been torn up now for over a month - if you visit me often you know we're having new flooring installed and it ain't been easy!! I'm stressed, and I going to whine just a bit. Nothing has happened when they said it would. Wrong color tile, carpet not in, layers can't do it, installers mess up! Don't even come when they say they will! I'm pulling out my already very short little gorgeous hair by the roots!! So forgive me, I know I'm a few bubbles off, but I will be better. I'm whining right now, but I will get on with the fun of Blogland. I just needed to vent a bit. Thank you!

Would you just look at these lovelies! My sweet blogging friend, Justine at Justine's Froggy Bloggy sent this to me just because she likes me! She likes me even if I'm a few bubbles off! Look at the sweet precious card and she's even sent Chloe Dawn an edible doggie card! See the lovely black bag? There was a wonderful Christmas ornament she had picked out just for me and she had it personalized, too! Isn't it the sweetest thing you've ever seen? Little notes and a banner that says "Sweet Shelia's Note Songs 2008". It's precious! Thank you so much, Justiney!! I already have this little cutie hanging on my tree.

Jan at Jan and Tom's Place hosted a Christmas Card Exchange. We were to stick a little something in our cards for fun. Well, that meant we would get Christmas cards filled with goodies. I'd like to show you my cards and little treasures. I'm a bit behind on this - I was supposed to post this on Friday. I'm sorry Jan!! :(

Now, I feel so much better. Thank you all so much for leaving your sweet comments. I so appreciate you coming to see me and Blogland has been such a joy! I've met so many nice folks and consider you my friends! I really do try to visit everyone who leaves a comment on my blog, but I've been so out of it the past few days and I haven't done it. Please forgive me! I love you all!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Just Dropped in to See What Condition my Condition Was In

I woke up this mornin' with the sundown shinin' in
I found my mind in a brown paper bag within
I tripped on a cloud and fell-a eight miles high
I tore my mind on a jagged sky
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

(yeah, yeah, oh-yeah, what condition my condition was in)

I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in
I watched myself crawlin' out as I was a-crawlin' in
I got up so tight I couldn't unwind
I saw so much I broke my mind
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

(yeah, yeah, oh-yeah, what condition my condition was in)

Someone painted April fool in big black letters on a dead end sign
I had my foot on the gas as I left the road and blew out my mind
Eight miles outta Memphis and I got no spare
Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in

I said I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in
Yeah yeah oh-yeah
