It's almost time...

To wrap the gifts that is....

I've somehow magically saved every single item for the last moment.  Nothing has been wrapped.  Nothing.

I think the kids are convinced that the tree will go present-less...and I wouldn't blame them.  It's never taken me this long to get organized...

There are many factors involved, and none of them has anything to do with procrastination. 

so, tonight is the night.  For as much as I would love to engage upon a night of walking under the stars with snow crunching under my feet...I must wrap.  As much as I would prefer to cuddle up with "A Christmas Story"...I must wrap.  As much as I need to write so that my bank account will not delve past a negative balance....I must wrap. 

In all honesty, there isn't much to wrap in spite of five children's worth of presents.  We opted for simplicity this year.  We opted for hope. 

Something is brimming on the horizon which seems born of a year and a half of pleading with the universe for guidance, for support, for......hope. 

I dare not utter much about it...though I will say for eager readers that I least as far as I know...not pregnant.  Not even after concentrated effort.  It's something else....somewhere else. 

In any case....I feel a bit like Frodo in his journey through the Fellowship of the Ring...and if things go the way I wish, I will actually walk in the land of "Middle Earth" by the end of the year.  And...I will make a new home...a new future...a new tomorrow........and, maybe...if I'm very very lucky....a new little kiwi.

Wishing you all...ALL...a wonderful...hopeful....peaceful...and bountiful...Christmas. 

With love.


  1. Love the "hopefulness" that comes from this post...wishing you the very best this holiday season and always. ((Hugs))

  2. Ah ha now all the New Zealand references make sense! I hope that your future is very bit as wonderful as you've described xo
