It's 12/13/2012....Christmas is fast approaching....are YOU ready???
Yesterday was my 40th birthday, and yesterday was no different from the day before....same old, same old...lol.
BUT...I had a fabulous day with birthday wishes, cupcakes, etc......AND the presents are all wrapped and under the tree, except for the one we had to order from Target - a rolling kitchen cart to help corral all of my kitchen gizmos AND give me more work space.
The tree has been up since Thanksgiving, though not as full of lights as in years past, but next year there will be more lights, and maybe even a second tree (upstairs). The children are under a warning....for every night that they stay up past their bedtimes, they lose a present, and it takes 2 days of going to bed on time to earn 1 present back. Thomas has lost one, but he's on his second day of going to bed on time, so tomorrow he will be able to put the present back under the tree. It sucks that we have to do this, but they are acting up and showing their butts....apparently having one of Santa's elves watching them doesn't help curb their behavior.
In the coming days, our schedule is practically insane.....tomorrow is breakfast with my husband and son, Saturday is dinner out with my girlfriends, Sunday, we rest. Monday I have to take my son to an appointment, Tuesday I have an appointment and I have to help my daughter make cookies for her class party (I refuse to make them because she signed me up without asking), Wednesday is her class party, Thursday I have a cookie and ornament exchange, Friday we rest, Saturday or Sunday means Mother will arrive for a visit....and so it goes......fun fun fun.....
And so it goes.....if the postings drop off between now and January, well, now you can see what I'll be doing....
And if I don't post again, Have a wonderful Christmas and a fabulous New Year!
