Dear December,

I can't believe you are almost here. You are the only month during the school year that allows me to spend 2 weeks of uninterrupted bliss with my family, friends, and fur babies. You are a busy month.... very busy. You bring me two doctor's appointments, possibly a third if I have to have my wisdom teeth removed right before the new year is set to arrive. You also bring lots of shopping accompanied by many peppermint mochas and good times with family and friends. You bring lots of beautiful, bright lights that make me smile as I sit inside our cozy home staring at my Christmas tree. You bring parades, Christmas carolers, gift exchanges, and lots of delicious food to be eaten with loved ones. Best of all, you come in celebration of the birth of our wonderful Savior, the most amazing and priceless gift. Welcome back December! =)

Reasons I am joyful...
...I have a Savior who is full of grace
...tomorrow is the last day of my work week
...Thanksgiving in all its yummy deliciousness is only a few days away
...the Christmas tree can go up in a few short days
...a classic book list for my holiday break (including The Great Gatsby, which they are currently making into a movie, Jane Eyre, An American Childhood, The Alchemist, and a book of poetry by Robert Frost)
...a pantry stocked full of hot chocolate, tea, and coffee
...five days of sleeping in alarm clock free
...and girls night on Friday
...this is just a mere glimpse of the many blessings in my life. What are you thankful for?

In Need of Inspiration

I am a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad blogger. It's been over a month. I've lost my motivation to blog. Nothing that exciting is happening in our lives right now... I'm kinda in one of those blah states. I'm in dire need of the upcoming 5 day Thanksgiving break. I apologize to all of my wonderful blog friends... I have been reading your blogs every day! I just haven't had the energy to keep up with my own. I think I'm in a "funk". I need something new and refreshing to inspire me and bring some excitement back into my life. Any ideas? =)
On another note.... Hubs' basketball season is back in full swing. He made cuts yesterday and has his team for the season. Their first official practice was tonight and they practice again tomorrow from 5-7. Back to the terrible basketball schedule where hubs comes and goes and our Friday night dates are rescheduled to Saturdays due to to games and practices. Oh well... he's a terrific coach and I love going to the games to cheer him and his team on!
Christmas is 5 weeks away and I haven't bought one present! Yikes! I've got a lot to do between now and then.... There is a website called ABC Distributing and they have very reasonable and cute stuff for sale. Just an FYI for anyone who is looking for affordable gifts. My mom is addicted to their website and has made several purchases lately. At least someone has been Christmas shopping.... =)
Hopefully I will be out of my "funk" soon and back to my regularly schedule blogging!
