'Tis the Season

As we approach Christmas, stress often takes center stage. I can personally say that my Christmas shopping is not nearly complete -- I still have a ways to go. My poor husband has been working like crazy, and in my nauseated pregnant state I don't feel like doing much of anything.

Friday we had a party, a neighborhood affair, that started at my house. Of course I frantically had to clean up the house for guests. I did the best I could, but I wish I had the energy to go the extra mile. Oh well...

Saturday, John had to work all day. I took Ben to the playground and we both took a 3 hour nap. Oh the glorious nap!

Sunday was a business lunch at Disney. It was great. We got a babysitter and John and I kinda had a date. It was so NICE!! Even though we were joined by another couple for lunch, John and I ventured into the park (season passes are nice) and we walked around and rode one a ride. Doesn't sound like much, but it was great to spend some decent time with him. It's been so long since he and I have been able to spend "alone" time. I think we both missed it.

This week will prove to be yet another fun-filled week of John working late and me trying to keep everything at home together (and try to maintain its clean appearance). I have to find sometime this week to grocery shop, Christmas shop, drop off dry cleaning, wrap the gifts, and pack our things for the upcoming weekend. I can't wait till John gets home at a decent hour again!!
