I'm Still Around

Holy cow! I didn't notice how long it had been since I last wrote. It seems like this time of the year just never slows down. I have phone calls to return, Christmas cards to send, subbing at work. I can hardly stop to just be. But I have been, because I made a promise to myself to have some more "my" time. That is probably why I have been so busy. It's hard to get my time in and keep up with everything.

Some things that have been keeping me off of Blogger:
  • We had our faux Christmas in Illinois with Dion's side of the family. Dion proudly showed off his cooking talents, along with some fantastic lasagna made by his sister-in-law. It was a wonderful weekend even though we wondered if we would make it through the snow. They got 11 inches the night before and the day of our road trip. We were there from Fri-Mon.
  • I am going to teach a one day class as Community Ed on how to start your own blog. Awesome, huh?
  • I have been buying and wrapping presents. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
  • I moved 3 of our 4 bedrooms around last night. I won't even begin to explain it, but me strong like bull.
  • I got an mp3 player that I have finally begun to figure out. It rocks. BWAH-HA-HA-HA!
  • I have gone out with Carol a few times, and I have been over to a friends house for some rockin' chili.
  • I have been doing some extra subbing at work as of late, including today's split shift. But oh how I love being with the kids. I think I would like to work in an environment like the Ronald McDonald House. But would I be good?

I am sure there are a few other things that I am missing like the normal taking Claire to preschool (Oh! We had a Family Festival at her school that I helped set up and take down), going to Mayo every month, and the general day to day junk.

What I would like to do is go out with just Dion at some point. I can't remember when we did that last. But, sigh, we'll see. It's nap time for the girls, so I must bid you adieu. Adieu.

Sue -
So good to see you blogging again. Have fun with the blogger class... you're the perfect person for the job. Your blog rocks!

As for finding some time with your husband, I recommend doing what my cousin does - when they are at family's house, they slip out for a little while to walk around the block or just down the road. Even if it's only thirty minutes, it gives them a chance to reconnect. The children are being watched and no one feels like they are babysitting for such a short time. Hope that helps! Happy Holidays!
