Sunday before the Sunday before Christmas!

Well, I'm still singing the song that doesn't end and so is Nathan.  Funny how those catchy tunes stick with you.  I heard on the radio (ok, it was John Tesh) that it happens because you don't finish listening to the song. They say if you go back and finish the whole song it will go away.  I'll have to watch Lamb Chop this week I guess.  The only problem is, it's the song that never ends.  How exactly do I hear the whole song?   LOL

My sister is here to celebrate with me this weekend, I graduated yesterday with a BSM-HR degree, who-hoo.  It was fun!  I didn't pass out or fall off the stage or do anything embarrassing.  I might have been the only grandma graduating though.  It looked that way.  My husband was sure dressed to impress- he's been buying himself good looking clothes these days.  Who knew he had that in him?  He has been shopping for himself and getting the best looking stuff.  He's on a wool kick right now and he has tweed jackets and sweaters in many colors now.  Not many years ago he'd buy clothing and I always compared his purchases to Starsky and Hutch from the 70's.    He's getting better with age!

Now I get to decide if I want to pursue an MBA.  It's tempting since I have the whole study thing down now and my study partner from the last degree has decided to do it.  I'll think about it through Christmas.  I have a few new cross stitch designs in the works and some quilt patterns underway.  The new year starts in 2 weeks.  Life just goes too fast for me.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the young victims in Connecticut on Friday.  Also the families of the heroic teachers who were killed, everyone in the school who was safe and the first responders who were traumatized.  The local community will never be the same.  Such a heartbreaking tragedy.

Another Sunday Post

 Most of my Christmas shopping was done online.. Amazon.  You gotta love it.  I got Amazon Prime (thanks to my BFF Barb) and my shipping is all free for a year.  Really saves a lot of aggravation in lines at the store and not finding what you want.... blah, blah, blah.    I do a lot of shopping in the middle of the night, when I can't sleep and  I get up early.  It's my quiet time I share with my favorite coffee cup and a pot of coffee.  I've got the dog trained too, I take her out(all bundled in a robe), then she goes right back to bed. I always have to go out in the middle of the night with her- she's 11 pounds and there are coyotes lurking out there.  She'd be just a morsel.  Anyway, it's always good to get up early.... I love it.

I had my grandsons Nathan and Patrick spend the night with us last night and they wanted to watch some Lamb Chop shows I had on the DVR since their mother watched it growing up and sang them the ending song. 4 year old Nathan can now sing goes:

this is the song that doesn't end...
yes it goes on and on my friend....
some people started singing it not knowing what it was...
and they'll continue singing it forever just because... 
this is the song that doesn't end........

I must admit it is the song that doesn't end, as it goes on forever and ever. It's still stuck in my mind.
Anybody remember it?
