glad you are better, Jackie. I think I'm better this morning too. I still took dayquil this morning, though just to make sure I feel okay for work.

I feel very unorganized for christmas this year. much more so than normally. I told the kids last night I don't even know what we've bought and haven't any more, lol.

Thank you guys. I'm not 100% buy I've managed to keep food down and in so I'm already feeling slightly more human.

Me and Kyle just went and finished our Christmas food shopping. It feels so weird to be buying for Christmas dinner. It's going to be a very different time this year....god but different

Woohoo stews. I hope today goes by fast for you.

Morning anyone. Dh is home on break for a few days which will either be nice or a pita have to take my car in this morning because there is a chip in the paint, then to Walmart to get a few small things. We are going to bake some cookies on Christmas Eve to leave for Santa.

Having major rib pain this morning. This baby better be getting ready

yup, I can make it. along as my little felons don't decide to cause a ruckus cause the world is going to end today and all that. It SHOULD be an easy day. we get out at ten and are going to watch a movie. depending on the one they choose, they may have a little work first but it won't be much. if they choose the longer one we'll have to start the movie almost right away . (I kind of hope they choose that one, LOL!


not sure what else is going on today. school gets out at 10:00. I'll come home and make sure dh is up (he got home late last night from his daddy daughter date with dd22). dd24 works all day till 7:00 so I'm thinking dh and I should get in together and get all her gifts wrapped and the few others I have left. so thankful dd24 did most of the gifts already but I bought a few since then.

I should have gotten something for coworkers but I am SO not with it this year and didn't . I will be baking this weekend and taking a tray of goodies to the guards either sun or mon depending on when I'm done baking. I'm hoping to get it all done tomorrow, though. that would give me Sunday to just enjoy the day, get a few stocking stuffers and relax.

I keep checking my cell to make sure I didn't miss a text notification. I don't always feel it at work when I'm moving around a lot and I have the sound turned down while there.

Morning. Kyle decided he wants to go to Chuckie cheese today. I hate that place but we want to do some things he wants before the baby is born.

So send good labor thoughts for tomorrow please. We'd love her to share my grandmas birthday on Christmas Eve. If I went into labor tomorrow evening that could work

you got it, DP! come on baby princess!!!! have a fun time with Kyle.


I'm almost ready to go to my hair appointment. also decided that I am going to get kasia and her boyfriend a bunch of gift cards to restaurants where they are moving. problem is it appears there aren't many national sit down restaurants there (you know, the kind you can get gift cards for at the grocery stores and places like that). looks like they will get 1 or 2 and mostly fast food places. we are spending SO much on the girls this year but they really can use it. dd and her boyfriend will be living in a motel the first 5 days they are there before they can get into their apartment. they really can't afford it but they don't have a choice. and then for the following week they will have limited supplies. Kasia will take a minimum amount of what she needs but won't have a full kitchen till we drive down the following weekend with more of her things. I thought some gc to places to eat might help.

I was going to be started my last of my baking already but having a hard time getting myself going. I'm going to finish this cup of coffee then make myself go. taht way by early afternoon I can go out and finish the little stuff and just enjoy looking around and picking up what I feel like, nothing I HAVE to get.

I told dh I'm hoping to just relax or do whatever we want tonight together before the next couple busy days with family. I LOVE those days, don't get me wrong, but I also love the time with just us.

been busy all day. I finished the last batch of cookies and made a bunch of caramel corn. was going to make more but I have enough that I don't have to unless I feel like it tomorrow morning, but probably won't.

dh went with me to take the goodies to juvie. he can't go in the back with me but he helped me get in the doors at least since my hands were full.

afterwards we went and got the rest of the stocking stuffers and a few more gift cards for places to eat for dd23 and her boyfriend. I don't usually put that many in their stocking. usually just a couple, but since they are going to be living in a motel the first 5 nights and then moving in to an apartment while kasia is working full time and her boyfriend is in school they might like some. plus, money will be tight at first until dd gets a pay check or 2 so this way they can grab food on the run when needed and not feel like they are spending money.

at target I made dh go do his own thing for a bit so I could get some stocking stuffers for him then we met back up when we were both done. now we are heading to a movie. going to get dinner while there. its at a local theater pub.

tomorrow morning, make mac and cheese to take to Dad's and just enjoy the day. I do have just a few presents to wrap tonight. the finishing touches that I couldn't do until after we shopped today. we got a tin of candy for dd22 and I opened it up and put her money inside that we are giving her. Its not creative but I'm out of time to be creative, lol.

anyway, going to enjoy a nice evening with my man before the busy family gatherings start tomorrow. OH I just realized all 5 of us sibblings are going to be at my dad's tomorrow. I don't remember the last time that happened. yeah!

Aww that's nice stews. My brother is going to my moms tomorrow for the first time in over 5 years and for the first time with my niece Emerson. Of course I'm not there it doesn't feel like Christmas but we are excited all the same. Now I just need to stay out of the hospital

yeah, since princess Stella didn't show up yet, she should hang out there till after Christmas now.

we had a really nice time last night. then dd22 showed up later. they came by to borrow a movie but then visited for a bit. she is bringing her room mate to our family Christmas today at my Dad's. I'm so glad she's coming even though dd23 is bringing her boyfriend. she seems to be mellowing some, even though she doesn't want to like him. hopefully she'll keep growing and give him a chance. he may earn some brownie points. he is planning on getting her a new rat for Christmas. guess that's one way into her heart, LOL! she does NOT need another one, but the fact he wants to do something for her even though she has wanted nothing to do with him and she wants to do something he knows means something to her is very sweet, I think.

it was SO nice to be done with everything last night early enough to go out to a movie and get away from it all with dh. I really needed that after a super busy couple days and the next couple days on the run to family houses.

Christmas is SO much fun when they are little. the joy and excitement in their eyes. its still fun when they are older, but nothing like the joy of a child at christmas!

I've got the mac and cheese ready to bake. just waiting for the oven to preheat then I'll go get ready. I think I want to run out for one more thing this morning. I meant to pick up a kindle card for dh but forgot. as it is I was buying things for him yesterday when he was with me. when I was buying the gc's for dd23 and her boyfriend i picked up a starbucks card for dd22 and also one for dh. of course we get to the check out and grabs th cards to look and see what all I found for dd23 and her boyfriend. I was all *you can't look* LOL! um, needless to say I think he knows he's getting a starbucks card *snort*. if I was quicker on my feet I would have just pretended it was for someone else, but NOOOOO, I just blurt "don't look" bwahahahaha
