It's A Good Day:

Cleaned house and invited David's parents over for dinner tonight. We had salad and chicken alfredo. Then afterwards we took a look at our master bath and talked by the fire for a little before heading to Lowe's. We picked up the stuff to fix our master bath, as well as two lighting fixtures for our foyer and dining room. Hopefully tomorrow or later this week we can go back and pick up a small shop vac, and some mini blinds for the living room. Small steps, but these gift cards are making a world of difference. We are very grateful. Tomorrow afternoon we've gotta take Cleo to the groomers. Tonight I'm just watching "Legend of the Seeker" while David is reading by the fire. Tonight will be relaxing.

A Beautiful Christmas:

I had a great Christmas! I'm ridiculously tired, but happy. It started at 8:30am this morning and went to my parents' house to do presents there. I got a beautiful like 2.5 ft. standing jewelry box that is cherry wood colored, two gift cards to Lowe's, and beads. Then we went to lunch at David's parents' and got to see the kids again and Uncle Larry and Uncle Bob and Aunt Bearigette (sorry, I'm sure I butchered it.) came. We got some money, a Sonic giftcard, another Lowe's giftcard, a Target giftcard, some kitcheny things, the softest sweatshirt you've ever felt, some candy, David got a shirt and some shorts, and an edger. Then off to my grandma's where I got this pretty gold and jade necklace/ring set, some earrings, a digital meat thermometer, some eggs cooker things, two giftcards for Michaels, and David got an electric flying helicopter, which is pretty neat and it lights up. Then delicious dinner and then to my parents' where we played some mario, ate dessert, and Naner and I watched the majority of 'Julie & Julia' before deciding to call it quits and heading home for the night. It was a great day. Thanks to all of you who helped to make it such a great one!

Merry Christmas Everyone:

Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Is Almost Here:

Oh my gosh, it's only 4 days away already. Where did time go? I've already decided that this coming year will be a good one though. I will get a good job that I enjoy, I will graduate with my masters, and we will try to get pregnant later in the year. :) Yay! So Christmas is 4 days away, and I still have no idea what's going on at either house. I know that in the morning, we're heading to my parents' for an early gift opening, and then later heading to both David's parents' and my grandma's but don't know of times yet, or what to bring as far as food goes. If it's alright, I'm thinking the mashed potatoes again for the Pocock's since that seemed to go well at Thanksgiving, and maybe a squash casserole or broccoli and cheese casserole at my grandma's.

I've been cleaning house like crazy the past couple of days because a friend of ours is supposed to be coming and staying with us for a day or two from Toronto. There's definitely still more that needs to be done, but we're off to a good start I think. Oh, and I've got stuff that I need to donate. Clothes to Country Acres, and some other stuff to the SPCA. I need to get it out of here in the next day or two.

Good Day:

So Naner and I headed to Waterford this afternoon to use my Joann's giftcard! I got a whole bunch of new pretty beads. Can't wait to get more. Seriously, I could spend so much money in there, and I absolutely LOVE making the jewelry. Here are a few of the pix..

So far it's been a very good day. I got woken up this morning by Marj bringing me birthday gifts. :) Thank you! And then off to get ready for my interview at BBC Cocoa campus, which I think went really well. It'll be a few weeks before I hear anything since they will be closed for the holidays, but still very excited. Just had a yummy sandwich and soup from Subway, and now home just hanging out before running to the bank. Then dinner tonight at my family's, and I got a Carvel ice cream cake! Yummy!

Getting It Done:

Got David's parents' house mowed today. Got laundry and dishes going, and cleaned up the kitchen. I need to take out the trash, and tidy up the living room a bit. And David REALLY needs to clean the office. It's a mess and I won't touch it. But yay! One step closer. And I got all of the Christmas presents done. I just need to get David to sign the cards to send to our friends, and get my mom and brother's presents wrapped. Then we're all done!

Potential Job Opportunity?

Well this might be good news. :) I just got called to come for an interview for a part time clerical position at BCC in Cocoa. It'd be perfect hours and I'd have Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays off. And it'd be a foot in the door for internal jobs. Kind of excited. The interview is next Wednesday at 1pm on my birthday so hopefully that will bring good luck. And it starts at the beginning of the year. Wish me luck!

What Is Wrong With Me...?

I don't understand. This whole past week I haven't been sleeping well, but the past two nights have been the worst. Lastnight, even though I still wasn't tired, decided to force myself to head to bed at 4am. I ended up laying awake until 6am. At 9:30am I got up to pee, then finally fell asleep until the alarm went off at 11am. Then David got up, and I attempted to sleep for the next hour and a half, which I only actually slept maybe 20 minutes of. One would think I'd be exhausted tonight. But's 4am again and here I am, still not even the slightest bit tired. What is wrong with me? Seriously? Agh. Maybe I need to look into some Advil PM or Ambien or something. It's very frustrating. Especially when I can't even snuggle my own husband b/c he's passed out 4 hours before me. :(

Happy Birthday Dougal!!

Today is my brother's 20th birthday! I am sooooooo old. Seriously. Next year my sister will be 18 and my brother will be 21? How and when did this happen? Agh. Time is going by way too fast. I'm just thankful I've got to spend it getting closer to my family. I love them so much!

So today I have a final, and tomorrow I've got a final and then I'm done with school until January 11th! Yay! Then next semester I have to fill out my intent to graduate, and sign up for my final two courses for summer! Then Saturday, August 7th, I'm supposed to graduate. Crazy!!
