Okay, I know I have been abandoning my blog. I have been extremely busy. This time of year brings in a lot of friends and family, therefore: cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. The never ending story.
Today, though, I have a few minutes to stop in because I’m feeling extra ambitious. I’m feeding the baby while typing via my WordPress application on my phone. Ha. I’m a dork.
This weekend we went and picked out our Christmas tree and decorated it. It is so nice to have that aroma in the house again. And those dim lights twinkling in the background. I just love this time of year.
My old friend (from years before I met my husband) came over for the weekend. I like to call these our “slumber parties”. We hadn’t had one of these in awhile so we were due. We enjoyed some awesome meals, drinks, pie, Minecraft and Arthur’s Christmas.
On Saturday morning, my Mom stopped by to drop off lunch while she rushed her way through town to be home in time for work. She is always on the go, that lady.
I’ve been putting together wreaths, as of late. I have a live one that I am selling to a friend and have to have it completed by Friday. Right now I am in the midst of spray painting twigs white for the background of the greenery. This will take some time as they have to fight the freezing air to dry. I am a bit nervous that I may not have it finished in time. But then again, I am always nervous (as my husband would say).
Speaking of being nervous… I have been freaking out about my female problems. Every time it is “that time of the month”, my body changes, becomes weak, hormonal, brittle, painful, and just plain weird. My thumbnails get these divots in them, which I had once read can be a symptom of cancer. I know… every symptom is a symptom of cancer. But seriously, I am freaking out. I am super nervous and scared. Please, say a few prayers for me, as I await the time to get in to see my doctor.
On a bit of a brighter note: this weekend I started with Christmas cards. I printed out several of our family photos that we recently had done. The photographers prices were outrageous, so what we did was scan the few photos we did purchase and then we printed them onto our own photo paper. (This isn’t illegal, I promise.) It worked out awesome! Cards will be sent out tomorrow along with a nice Campbell family photo.
Today, I constructed a couple of Thomas & Friends birthday invitations to give to a couple of friends here in town. Have I mentioned, my little guy will be turning one in 7 days? Man! I don’t even need to say it. How fast time flies. Because we all know this. We will be going from counting my little guys age in months to counting in years. This is a big deal to me. Maybe it’s a mom thing?
No matter my neglect for my blog, I am still living each day, here. Busy. As a mother. Wife. Daughter. Friend. Extreme house cleaner. I am here.
Cheers — to life, and the winter holidays!
