Is anyone else looking forward to December being over?
It seems like I have something to do almost everyday and today I woke up with that dreaded heaviness in my chest which reared it’s ugly head at this same time last year. And by New Year’s Eve I could barely breathe let alone move around and my husband had to celebrate without me. I refuse to let that happen again this year.
I am happy to report that I have finally finished my tattoo sleeve on my arm. I might just need one more touch up appointment but I am so glad to finally have it finished. It has been a work in progress for over a year.
Tuesday I drove into the city and had my hair done. They had my appointment messed up and only had me down for a haircut which thankfully they worked out because there was no way I was leaving until my
platinum pieces of wisdom gray hairs were covered. I can go without a haircut much more than the color.
My 4 year old monster M had her preschool program where they invited the parents and had us listen to them sing several
out of tune Christmas songs. It was such a cute performance and would have been so much more enjoyable for me if my monster M would have actually sang the songs instead of staring around the room like she wanted to be anywhere but there.
We had a major snowstorm come through this week and of course the littles and I went and played in it. We tried to sled in the freshly laid powder but because it was so fresh it wasn’t compacted enough to get the sled to move. However, monster B found a group of older boys who had been sledding down it enough to compact it and they were nice enough to let him join in. (If they hadn’t the mother
bitch bear in me would have come out) He got a couple good runs in but his poor sisters whimped out of anything to do with the snow after about 30 minutes when they suddenly decided they were freezing and wanted to sit in the Yukon to warm up.
I had another photo shoot this week with a wonderful family. We shot it at a local park and although the sun was out it was only about 28*F, so we moved quickly. Their little boy was such an absolute cutie, full of life and made the entire time so much fun for me. In the picture below, I didn’t even ask him to kiss his sister’s forehead, he did that all on his own.
I am happy to say that I think we are pretty much done with the wrapping of presents and are all counting the “sleeps” before the big day. I myself am looking forward to having two weeks of not having to set an alarm to get up and get 4 kids out the door to school. Although I am not looking forward to the sibling rivalry that I am sure will be endured daily. I am hoping that the baking and crafts I have planned will keep them occupied until Christmas day and then I am relying on all their new Christmas stuff to keep them quiet. **wishful thinks**
We also had wrestling sign ups for little monster M and B this week. That will start in January and I am interested to see how well my 4 year old girl is going to tackle someone to the ground. But she swears that she wants to do it so I support her. Monster B participated last year and ended up taking 3rd place overall. Maybe he could give his sister a few pointers. My poor 3 year old is bummed that there is yet another sport that she is too young to play. I am sure she is sick of hearing that when she is 4 she can play sports.
My working out has been put on hold the past couple weeks and I have no excuses other than everything else this month has been more inportant than myself. Story of #mommylife. Even my blogging has been put on the farthest back burner, but I plan to be back in full force come January!
Hope all of you have a fabulous week and a very Merry Christmas!
