I wasn't sure what to title this post simply because of the vast amount of activities and events that have cluttered my calender this past weekend.
It was my moms big Christmas show- Not much to say about the big Christmas Spectacular- yes, it was spectacular, but it was an exhausting, overly packed weekend. And I was really emotional because of that certain week of the month so I cried through half the songs. It was just a LOT of driving, standing, talking, baby wrangling, etc. So I felt entitled to some soft crying :) In fact, last night as I went to bed, I was so tired and overwhelmed, I was thinking "THANK GOD its Sunday tomorrow- we need a break!" Boo- it was really Monday.
SO we've got 10 days until Christmas??? Crazy, but nice. I really am just about done with everything... I do have lots of baking to do Christmas eve, and some picture developing... but other than that, things are set. Oh I guess I should get my dogs a bone or something.
On the sick front, I am feeling better- still have a scratchy, annoying voice and a disgusting nose, but the fevers haves stopped. Maeve has popped a tooth on her bottom gum which I'm hoping was the culprit of her fevers. She's still a grouch... last night on our way home from the most disastrous photo shoot in history, Ryan and I joked that Maeve had reached a new level of insanity... or perhaps she's just inching her way closer to that magic age of 2. Either way, she was uncooperative, out of control and just plain un-fun to take pictures with last night. Poor Suzie drove all the way down from the Grand Haven area (not sure how to spell your exact location suz!) and Maeve was so incredibly NOT having anything to do with taking pictures. It was embarassing and super frustrating. But thats life with a 14 month old I guess. :)
It IS Monday though, and we all know how much I enjoy Mondays ever since my appointments started up at UMich. No cooking, long drives talking to Ryan and listening to Buffett and usually some good insight as into why I decide to panic in perfectly ordinary situations. It really is a fun night. So I am looking forward to 5 'o clock...
On my "to-do" list today, is to get those pictures developed and get my grandmas gift shipped off to Florida. I would call it a good day though if I managed to get myself and Maeve to Target for the pics.
Alright... I suppose I should start some sort of getting ready for the day... my kids in a diaper, I'm in a t-shirt and the house looks like we had an F-5 come through last night...
