Onto other news....for Thanksgiving we went to hang out with Bill, Gail and their two boys for the 4 days and Ben's parents drove down from Canada to hang out with us too. It was a nice little break.
Well, we are now into December and I am DONE my Christmas shopping! I have sent up the majority of the presents with Ben's parents to Canada so that we don't have as much to lug up to Canada on the 21st. I have wrapped all of the gifts and they are sitting at my parents house waiting for us to get there. The other gifts that I had ordered online have arrived at the house and are sitting in a box all wrapped up and ready to drive up to Canada.
I have been working on some crafts to give as presents and I have to tell you - they look really good! I am impressed with my own handi-work! The first candle I made was for my secret sister.
I think I did a good job on them! I also sent a notebook that I altered for her to put sketches and stuff in there. See Below.....
Tonight we have a sitter coming to watch Nathan while we attend Ben's Christmas get together for his work.
I have gotten into watching Desperate Housewives Season 1 on DVD with Netflix...what a great show! I will have to rent all the others to get caught up to this season!!!
Did I mention that today was ROUGH for me? Nathan woke up at 6:15, then wanted breakfast and then I had to teach an aerobics class at 9:15 and the girls that made a stink about me not teaching (I mentioned that I might have to get a sub) Saturday didn't even show up! Then, when I got home, Nathan was whining about something. I got him MORE breakfast and then he had a nap. While he napped, I had a long hot bath and washed my hair and relaxed and went to take a nap and what do you know.....HE GOT UP just as I fell asleep and I could hear him messing around in the kitchen outside my door! SO - I got up!
So much for a nap before the big party! Yeah right!
So, I am struggling today......energy low, tired.....etc.
One good thing that is happening is that our TRI-STATE Retreat with ScrapShare is already planned and ready to go! We found the CUTEST goody bags and they are actually USEFUL! So, I am excited. We are already getting emails from people wanting information and I am pretty sure we will have the required amount of people to put the deposit down on the 15th of January!!!! How cool is that?
I am psyched! Shelbi has been great to work with too!!! We even opened a Yahoo Group for the retreat!!! :)
Well, that is all the news right now.....I'll write later on!
