Bored Senseless

I am so BORED! John is working a school dance tonight from 7-10 and then he has to be at work for his regular shift at 11. I miss him SO BAD but the extra cash around Christmas time is definitely nice. To add to that, Brooke is spending tonight with my parents. She is my little chatterbox and she always keeps me occupied so it's way too quiet without her! I just put Adrienne down for the night and so I'm trying to figure out what the heck I'm going to do with myself for the next 4 hours or so.

It was hilarious because I was wrapping presents tonight and Adrienne kept trying to scoot to get the paper. More times than not she succeeded and ripped the paper and I had to pry it out of her hands before she ate it. That didn't go over too well with her! She hasn't quite mastered the army crawl yet but she kind of kicks and inches forward a little bit. She's only semi-mobile at this point and that is just fine with me!

I feel so behind on Christmas preparations this year. I have yet to get Adrienne or John a single thing and Brooke's stocking still isn't even started. I love to shower my family with gifts, but to be honest, the commercialism of Christmas really bums me out. I hate feeling stressed about the money that we're spending and I would rather just be able to celebrate the season without the added pressure of gifts. I don't know about you, but that sounds like a much more peaceful and relaxing way to celebrate Jesus' birthday!

Nothing else is new around here with us. We've been so busy over the last couple of days because John was off. Tonight is his first night back which stink but we're REALLY happy because he has Christmas Eve off and then doesn't have to go to work until 11 on Christmas night. We got pretty lucky, didn't we?

Well, I'm going to go do some work out of the house and try to find a movie to watch. I'm out!

Sounds just like my life! HF has been working a lot of special events this week and last so once the kids are in bed I have all this time to myself at home. I've been reading a lot and tonight i'm watching Dance With Me with Vanessa Williams. I feel the same way about Christmas, but I do like stuffing the stockings with little things that are not just junk, but I do prefer keeping it simple. With all the grandparents living in other states, they end up sending so much stuff that we don't really need to get them anything else.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your time alone!
