I Feel the Need to Spread Some Cheer

ETA: I have moved this so that it stays at the top until the drawing is done.

After going to the ER for stitches on Saturday night, DS woke up in the middle of the night Sunday night with his first stomach virus. He was sick all night long, and just wanted to sleep, but as he started to drift off, he had to run to the bathroom again. Poor little thing curled up on the bathroom rug at one point so he could rest! It took until yesterday afternoon for him to get over it, and he watched more tv in the last two days than he as in his 4-year life! But today he is back at preschool - he couldn't miss Show and Tell!

Meanwhile, I got the Christmas cards mailed, teacher gifts made, and treats passed out to co-workers. All I have to do before guests arrive is clean the house and wrap gifts.

So let's have a Blog Candy giveaway, shall we? Goodies are yet to be determined. I will try to gather them up over the next few days and post a photo. But as I promised - no leftover Christmas supplies and no re-gifting!

To enter, please leave me a comment on this post and tell me what you will be doing the day after Christmas. Shopping for bargains? Spending gift cards? Fighting with your kids for a turn at the WII? Eating cookies for breakfast? I will be at work.

Thanks for looking!

I will be off for two weeks! I will most likely go to Michaels. Later on in the week, when it calms down I'll probaby go to Anne Taylor Loft to use a coupon I have! Probably head to the park to run my baby ragged so he'll take a good nap and then maybe I can stamp!

Me...I'll be at work! :( Too bad for me, but it'll be a great day to get lots of work done!!

Glad your handsome young man is feeling better!

Oh no! You have to work the day after Christmas? That's no fun! :) I'm hoping to get in some boxing day shopping, but we'll see how tired everyone is! Maybe we'll sit around and eat turkey sandwiches and Christmas baking. Thanks for the chance to win!

The day after Christmas is our big family get together. So Christmas at our house seems to go on and on. I am expecting 17 people over for the day so I will be busy eating, baking, cooking and entertaining. Sorry you have to work. Sherri at flipflops4sherri@yahoo.com

Wow this is a tough question!!! But I will try to answer this question for this MYSTERY Cheer! I just know it will be FUN FUN FUN!
If I get my way there will be no shopping the day after Christmas, maybe the next day. I'm hoping to watch some movies, stamp, and eat leftovers.
Thanks for a chance.

Members of our family (my Mum and Dad, and my brother and his wife, and my in-laws) will be coming over to celebrate Christmas. For us in the UK it's called Boxing Day - do you have the same in the States?
Thanks for the offer. Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

I'm hoping to find some bargains, after Christmas. Hopefully that shiatsu massaging cushion that I have my eyes on will be discounted. (I wish) But anyway, I'll still be enjoying the holidays, bargains or not.

Tejal said...

I will be working! No lazing around for me, no cookies!
Ah well when you gotta work, you gotta work!

Hope your DS is feeling much better!
Happy holidays to you!

the day after I have been invited to tag along with some munchkins to the Children's Museum which just happens to be at mile marker three of the Crim route-so maybe I should get up early, do the three miles and then chill out with fun kiddie stuff.

Kim Ross said...

I'll be SHOPPING! :) Oh, and doing a drawing for my own blog's blog candy. But mostly SHOPPING! My 2nd favorite shopping day of the year. :)

Linda SS said...

Probably picking up the house from the day before. Lots of wrapping paper, bows, gifts, etc are left out and the playroom will need to be straightened up after the grandkiddies. Oh - and we'll be eating all the yummy left-overs:)

mochamama said...

Sorry to hear of your missfortunes! day after I will be entertaining 20 in-laws for dinner plus I will be on my favorite stampin sites drinking a hot chocolate and drooling over my fello bloggers creations!
Have a very Merry Christmas!

Mandiannie said...

I hope I can go shopping on boxing day. Hopefully there will be at least something that I'd want on sale for a great price.
Great candy, thanks for a chance to win.
