It's been a long time since I have posted.  Life just gets crazy sometimes and you know -- the blog gets the back burner.  I have missed it though.

--  I have a lot of loose ends I need to tie up this week.  First I need to finish all of my ornaments for the ornament exchange I am participating in.  I'll show you pics soon.  They're simple but cute.  Then I need to get some goods baked for a shipment of boxes to Afghanistan for my brother in law and his troop overseas.  I can't do much to help them have a Christmas but hopefully with everyone pitching in we can give them a little bit of a Christmas.  I have to give a thanks to a close friend of mine for taking the time out of her schedule and making Christmas cards with her son's class to go in these boxes.  Times are going to be tough this year in our household but I can only imagine how tough it is for those serving in the military who are away from their family for the holidays.  At least I get to spend my with the ones I love.

--  I'm thinking it is REALLY close to be time to potty train my almost two year son.  I know it seems WAY early for boys but when he takes his diaper off all the time and the proceeds to pee on my floor, I'm thinking it's time.  We've gradually been introducing him to the big boy potty and he takes to it well.  Even goes pee pee and poo poo on there lots of times.  I'm just realizing that consistency needs to be important now and I need to get it done.

--  I have been seeing a chiropractor for about two weeks now and I am soooo ready to start feeling some relief from my migraines.  After I write this I ammy way out the door for my 6th visit.  It seems that I have about three major issues going on with my neck and back which is what could be the root of the migraines that I have suffered from for years.  He thinks that after about 12 to 15 treatments I should be on the mend and feeling 100% but with the severity and length of time I have ignored the issues, it is going to take about 8 sessions until I start feeling any relief.  I have had fewer headaches but they are still there.

-- I am WAY behind on Christmas decorating.  It is usually completed by the weekend after Thanksgiving and I now it is only Monday, but we only have the tree up.  I am hoping to get things completed tonight and tomorrow night so that I can start tyring to enjoy the season.

-- My husband and I really need to take some "us" time together.  It has been LONG overdue and I'm thinking it's going to be a long time before we can. 

-- I could use a lot of prayers for my family right now.  They're needed and we would appreciate them.

Prayers on the way. It isn't even December yet so don't let the decorating get you down. Oh, how I hate those marathon headaches. I think I would wait til after the holidays for the potty training. Good luck, hope things smooth out for you soon.
