I'm Alive

Hey There!

I'm back, or more like I should say I'm around. There was whirlwind of activity involving our rental unit becoming vacant and the need to get it rented in only one month plus renovate it, in the two weeks it was actually empty.

All that is done now. Whew! (I have some pictures which I will get put up soon).

Now I'm in the thick of decorating for Christmas, going through my list, figuring out what we can squeeze out of the budget, thinking of sending some Christmas Cards out, figuring out what I am going to be baking and wrapping gifts.

That stuff is in progress. Whew! (I have no pictures of this but just assume I'm a chicken with no head and you get it)

Still lots of uncertainty at work, which is hard.

Family life, is also hard. The road of having two teenagers is FILLED with minefields. While I'm navigating the whole thing, I find myself longing for the days when a freeze pop would make it better.

For now, I'm going to head out to work, but I'll be back in a bit.

I love your comment about the freeze pop being the fix-all. SO TRUE!! (And can I get a Sam's Club extra large, family size box of 'em if it does work?!)

Miss ya!


P.S. Don't send a box our direction this year - put it towards the kids. We're saving our shuckles for the January mortage payment (oh how it sucks not to get paid for 2 weeks over the holidays!) so you do the same!
