This is our main tree in the living room. It has all our family ornies, and all my son's ornies that he has been given and made since he was born. It also has the real lights and bubblers. It is where all our gifts go. I actually went to the tree farm sick because I was afraid we would not get a tree if we didn't go them because Dan was supposed to go out of town for work the following week but the trip was cancelled....oh, if only I knew I could have waited!!!
Oh, my son turned 18 on the 10th. We let him have a bunch of friends come to the pizza place down the street (thank goodness for teenagers!!!) and then tonight I had the family over for cake and ice cream. He took his final exam for his first semester of college today. It was a trying experience for all of us. Tomorrow he is having all four of his wisdom teeth removed. God help me!!!
My daughter broke up with her boyfriend and he moved out, so she has been in a state of semi depression. She has been stressing over affording the rent on her own, trying to get a 2nd job, etc that comes with a break-up. We were not big fans of her boyfriend but had accepted that they were together, now I think she can get on with her life and make smarter decisions, but she is not ready to hear that yet. I want her to know that a broken heart will mend but giving up who she is for someone who doesn't do the same and who doesn't respect her is not love. It is too soon. She is healing. I am seeing more of her now than I have the last 3 years. That is a good thing!
Ok, so as you can see, there has been a lot happening here, some good, a lot not so good. I need more time before Christmas, can someone arrange that for me? I haven't baked one cookie, I guess we won't have any this year, we will survive. I am still hosting Christmas morning breakfast here. I don't know what I am thinking. Dan is working a double the night/morning before. Yeah, we have lost our minds. I am sure I missed a lot on all my favorite blogs, sorry, I am sure it will take me a long time to catch up...at least till after the New Year. Speaking of which, I am not making any resolutions! I never keep them anyways!
I gotta go get some sleep, tomorrow is going to be an emotionally trying day.
Have a great day!
