Get your butt outta that RUT

This past seven days I have felt myself fall into a rut.......

rut - noun, verb, rut·ted, rut·ting.
1. a furrow or track in the ground, esp. one made by the passage of a vehicle or vehicles.
no not that kind of rut...2. any furrow, groove, etc.
no, not that one either..
3. a fixed or established mode of procedure or course of life, usually dull or unpromising: to fall into a rut.
Yes, this one!

I'm not seriously ill, abused, homeless, hungry....just in a rut. I'm not used to being home all day. I don't watch tv. I'm used to being the worker, the mom, the wife, go, go, go. The hand is achy, stiff, waiting for release. I'm not ready for Christmas. I haven't even turned the Christmas Tree lights on lately. It sort of feels like February....

Then I went to let the Pugs out and find a delivery on the porch. Wow, treats!!!!!







Thank you "Priscilla". Delicious and thoughtful, chocolate rut medicine!
Then when P got home from work he admired the Californy' treats and then I sent him out to the mailbox. In came another package and lots of cards. He laughed and told me "this has to stop". As I sat at the table opening I came upon a notice that flowers for me had been delivered next store, so back on went his boots and over he went. Sweet Sugar...Roy & Gwen....Girlville...30 Something....
Yep, darn good rut medicine....



From 30 Something, an adorable ornament. This will have to hang on the Pug tree in my office! Roy and Gwen that is the ultimate Christmas Card!!!! The best ever!!!!

Oh, what fun to get all those gifts in one day! When I've been getting a card or package this year, my husband keeps asking "now which one of your blog friends is that?" lol! I'm glad you like the ornament.

It's so nice to get the cards and gifts in the mail to make your day brighter. I know you stay on the go so much that it has to be hard to come to a stop and not be able to use your hand like that. At least you don't have to shovel snow!

I'm glad you and puggies enjoyed the Californ'y treats. Yes, chocolate is good rut medicine. Great with coffee! You'll have to let me know how you'all liked the Pumpkin fudge. I needs feedback.

You'll feel better soon. This wont last forever. Isn't it nice to get all these cool things from bloggy friends?
