I'm looking at the boxes wishing the decorations would jump out and run to the appropriate places so I didn't have to do it

Nice relaxing day! Slept late, went to the BIG bookstore and was going to run but stayed too long at the bookstore so had to get ready for a wedding about an hour away. Wedding was a lot of fun too, now home getting ready to watch movies Life is good!!!!

have a great day everyone. I won't be around much till this evening but may check in after church for a minute. dh and I are going to try and get some of our shopping done this afternoon before he has to go to work this evening.

I got some of my inside decorating done yesterday, will try and get a little more done this evening. we'll see how tired I am after shopping, I guess. I should have got more done yesterday but had a hard time getting myself started.

hope we get some more ideas for people. I really don't have any idea what to buy for some this year.

Morning

Had a decent weekend. We took Kyle to see the light show last night. He loved it! And so did me and dh. It was pretty cool. I can't believe Christmas is in 15 days and that my baby girl is due in 19!! I have to make it through this week then I'm off! I'm planning on doing some fun stuff with Kyle the next 2 weeks. I'm getting a little sad that my time with him as our only child is ending.

Hope everyone has a great day. I'm hoping to just survive it.

SO close, DP! you are going to have such an awesome Christmas this year.

I'm so tired. slept terrible. woke up spooked and was too scared to sleep well. hate when that happens.

after work I think I'm going to run by target and get just a few gifts we have left for nieces and nephews. then all we have is some more for our kids and the adults (parents). we are stumped on that front, lol.

dd24 will be easy to buy for but we got a little overwhelmed because she wants SO much. we are going to get her a bunch of kitchen stuff for a new apartment but she mostly needs everything. she has a few things but not too much yet. we finally decided to go to Costco tue (which has now changed to either thur. or fri) because dh ended up having to work tue now. and start with some basics there then fill in some other little things after we know what we can get there for decent prices.

I just ordered a furby from Amazon for a little girl on the angel tree at church. It's adorable! I wish we could see them open the presents!

Sorry you had a rough night stews. I had a few of those when dh was gone. Not fun! Hope today goes fast

Aww Lucy! How cute. We have an angel tree here but we haven't picked our family yet. Dh is going to do it this week. The tree is at his work

Today has been decent here. Gone fast kind of. Nice outside so we went for a walk and we painted some Christmas ornaments to send to family and for the twins parents. I'm excited for Christmas, even if it is kind if sad that we won't be with family at all

you are doing so SO well, Lenise!


long day! near flight in class but was able to manage it before it happened. worked an extra 1/2 hour in my room doing some things I don't have time to do lately. then went and did the interviews for the position. chatted a bit after then came home. talked with dd23 for a bit then breaking news on the tv about a shooting at a huge mall we shop at about an hour from us.

got dh off to work and now relaxing a bit. dd23 left to go to her boyfriend's house for awhile so they can get the apartment application done and faxed over. the lady said she only has 1 coming open and she'll hold it till noon tomorrow for them. it won't be available till the 7th though and they have to be there earlier than that so going to be interesting for them getting their things there with them. we may drive over that weekend before to help get some of it there for them. whew, she's going to be REALLY glad when she is there and settled.

We are putting our tree up Friday evening after the kids leave for the last time. I have 3 more days and tomorrow is a 1/2 day I have a doctors appointment tomorrow. I hope I'm making some progress, thou at this point I'd almost rather wait until after Christmas to have the baby.

you say that now but the moment she shows signs of appearing you are going to be READY, lol.

I hope my head is better this afternoon. I really do want to finish up and get the tree done. the rest is decorated enough. I didn't get everything out but I have plenty so that's fine.

yeah, I get that .


finally got the tree done. just have to hang the stockings up and then I think I'm done with the inside for this year. I have a village but I don't think I'll put it up. don't feel like messing with it, really. dh usually takes care of that one but he has had ZERO time. I don't even know if he's going to get the outside lights up this year its been so crazy . I mean, its good he's working and the extra money he's making will be nice but I miss seeing the lights when we come home at night or when I leave in the morning when its not quite light yet.

Had our Sweet Adelines christmas banquet tonight. Had a really good time. Going to miss practice for the next couple of weeks. We start again on Jan 3rd.

Just relaxing tonight. Finally got the extra monitor out so I can hook up my laptop. The screen won't stay on for some reason. At least I can do it this way.

Nighty night!

ack, was in the middle of a post and my computer restarted.

have a great day with the kids and a super family night, DP.

I get to leave a little later than normal for an unplanned late start. we are starting class at 9:30 but having a meeting at 8:00 se we can "vent" and share our concerns over some info that we got yesterday. I am not going as late as I usually do, though. my official start time is 7:30 and I usually get there 10 min. early or so. on late start days I usually get there about 1/2 later give or take.

today I'm going to shoot for right around 7:30. I asked the teacher I work closest with if I can leave early today so I don't really want to come in late too. (well, I do but it wouldn't look good even though he wouldn't care, lol). dh and I are leaving as soon as I get home from work to hopefully finish the shopping. what a weird year this has been for finding time to do that. he's worked so much that there just hasn't been any days to go. we found one other after noon before he started graveyard to look for a few things in town. I think we are going to Portland today since we have a little more time. can't be out late, though because he works tomorrow morning.

anyway, pray we find everything and come up with ideas for the few adults we haven't figured anything out for yet. yikes.

then my plan for the weekend is to maybe start baking and also get wrapping done. once the wrapping is done I can feel like I can enjoy the season instead of seeing so much of what I need to do still. baking, sometimes I don't even do until I get out of work a few days before Christmas so I'm not stressing about that if I don't end up starting. I usually do a marathon baking session and do it all in just 2 or 3 days but we'll see. it would be nice to get a head start if I feel like it.

I'm not looking forward to it either. I hate it, lol. I used to do it all at once and get it over with and I still WANT to but it hurts my back to spend that much time on it at once.

I just printed out all the recipes (I think) that I need to make christmas goodies. I want to get all the ingredients I need so if I feel like baking at all after work this week I have what I need already.

also printed out a bread recipe to try. I kind of want to give my sourdough starter a try. we'll see if I get to it today or not.

having one more cup of coffee then I think I'll go get ready. I am going to go see if I can pick up a few more things as gifts. we got most of our kids stuff yesterday. it was SO hard to stop shopping for dd23 knowing she needs almost everything for a new apartment. we got a set of pots and pans, set of cookie sheets and a set of bowls at costco. also went to target and got a 8x8 pan, set of serving/cooking spoons (assorted), pack of wooden spoons. can't remember what else, but probably more, lol. oh and I had already gotten her a pasta pot. I need to stop looking *blush*.

I do plan on taking her sometime after Christmas and letting her pick out a few things she wants as a home coming gift. rather than me choosing for her it will give us time together and will be fun for her to choose some things. I did that when dd22 moved out and loved it!

also got the last of what we need for dd22 and ds29 and his girfriend except a couple gc to go with HER gifts. I am going to Michaels to look for drawing supplies for one niece and need a gift for another niece. also a shirt or 2 for dd24's boyfriend to finish up his gift.
also will pick up a few little things for stockings. we do still have our parents to buy for. didn't have time to look for that yesterday and we really don't have much of an idea. yikes!

We got up and had dhs Christmas party. Kyle had fun. I love this time of the year with him.

Too bad I'm sicker than a dog though...like worse than I was a few weeks ago. Seems I'm just picking up anything going around. We have a birthday party this evening and I want to go but I don't know if I can do it. and a party tomorrow. This was the worst weekend to be sick!

ah, I'm sorry you are sick again. I sure do hope its a short lived illness.

I've been gone most of the day. went out and found a few more gifts. not all of them but a little more. then I came home, had some lunch chatted with dd24 then we went to the store and got all the baking supplies I need.

went back out after dd24 left for the evening and found a few more little things.

back home, had a little dinner and am sitting here watching a little tv before dh gets home.
