I've been spending a lot of time with my parents on the weekends. Life has thrown me a huge curve ball and I'm lucky that I've been able to go to my parents for counsel and solace. We've had our typical family dinners, been going to church together, and enjoying Saints games and Lady Tiger basketball games. The week is time for work and spending time with my friends and dog.
I completed all my shopping today. My last gifts to pick up were for Duke. His stocking has been hung and stuffed full of the goodies. Now he is pouting because I won't let him have any of it yet!!! Nope, it is for Christmas! Yes, I do take each item out on Christmas morning and let him pick and choose that which he wants to play with. I also make sure to bring one of his new items with us when we go to my parents. Now all I have to do is finishing wrapping!
On a side note, and kind of a sad one, poor Duke's mother, Molly, passed away today. She was just a year older than Duke and died of heart failure. As many of you know, Duke has a heart condition also. It is being treated with medication and I hope that he has a few more years ahead of him because we are aggressively treating it! He seems to be doing well on the medication and is even gaining weight so I hope that at his regular annual check up things will continue to look good and we won't have to add any more medicines!
I have been stitching. Here and there. When I am home I've been vegging out and watching movies. Being very lazy!!! I've been working on what will one day be a Christmas stocking for my sister. Not this year of course, maybe next year!
It is time to start working on my goals for next year. I'll review my list from this year and either carry over those that haven't been completed or cross off that which I have completed. I might even add on a few more. I know that I have quite a few projects that I hope to finish in 2011 as I didn't have very many finished this year!
Hope that all of you have a Happy Holiday!
