It’s Christmas time again and believe it or not, for the first time in a few years, I am actually ready! I believe (crossing my fingers) that all my presents have been purchased. The tree and other small decorations are up. For the first time in a few years, I am excited about Christmas!

Do you ever feel like there are some weeks when no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get it all done and get it right? I’m in one of those weeks right now. It sucks to be honest.

It’s been about a month since my last post here and since my son came home. So, how are we doing, you ask? We’re actually doing OK.
