It's beginning to feel a BIT like Christmas

Our tree is up and the inside of the house is decorated.  We aren't decorating outside this year because we are moving in June and TBH, we have too much to do inside to spend time decorating outside.  So there.

I worked for the past week and a half and I'm sick again.  Damned biohazardous school kids.  Today was spent in bed for the most part, which sucks because I wanted to start wrapping and baking.  Tomorrow, I will get the stocking stuffers and a few last minute things and then wrapping will commence.  God, I LOATHE wrapping gifts.  Ugh.

Friday will be baking day.  I have a few different cookies I want to make and I am making a couple of tins for some special teachers at the school.  I'm back in my favourite CASA class on Monday for 8 days and then off on the 22nd until at least after Christmas.

The kids are good...parenting is not for the faint of heart though, that's for sure.  There's always something to keep me on my toes. The older boys are working a lot and we rarely have time as a quintet anymore.  There is almost always an empty seat or two at the kitchen table and as sad as that makes me, I realize that it's part of raising a family.  Sigh.

Hubster is still looking for work.  Lots of phone interviews this week, but nothing is sticking yet.  Fingers crossed that it won't be long until he's back in the saddle again.

Dudley is great.  He's right here at my side, as he always is.  He's the lappiest lapdog that ever lived, and I wouldn't have it any other way.  He kept me warm this morning when I was shivering under the covers.

We had nachos for dinner tonight.  Mother of the year right here.  But the turkey carcass from our roast turkey dinner on Sunday is in the crockpot, making us some nice leftover turkey soup for tomorrow's dinner, so I kind of redeemed myself there.

So, there's my update...quick and easy.

Happy Wednesday! xo Pin It
