"The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself." -- Anais Nin

Nice & quiet in the house right now. T is babysitting for the 2 little girls down the street and Chris & KJ are at a lacrosse clinic. KJ makes her reconciliation at 3:30 PM today so Chris has to have her home early enough to shower and get dressed. She should have fun today. Several of her friends are in her class: Joe L., Evvy (aka Evster), Maggie (aka Magster).

She was super duper cranky after school yesterday. She didn't want to get a haircut, she didn't want tacos for dinner, she was really whiny and got upset because I didn't have time to meander down the Christmas aisle at Bruno's (it's just candy and junky toys but to an 8 year old little girl I'm sure it's heaven). She got in the car and told me all I do is rush, rush, rush and I never have time for anything. Nothing like a little mommy-guilt to kick-off the weekend.

ME was here for a couple of nights while her parents went out of town. Barely knew she was here at all. She's practically part of the family and knows where every thing is. I think she even made her own breakfast this morning.

17 more days until Christmas . . . I started writing out my Christmas cards last night. I'm up to the S's. I love rec'ving Christmas cards in the mail and I especially like the ones with family photos in them. I love seeing how everyone has changed and grown up. Our old neighbors from MD (now live in KS), always do an AWESOME family newsletter and that is one of the highlights of our Christmas season. My girlfriend LCM usually does a creative card, too. Our old neighbors from OH went to Belize last year and their card was all 5 of them covered in the mud. At first, I thought it was a weird picture to send out for Christmas but when I really looked at it, they all had incredible smiles on their faces and looked like they were having so much fun. I put all of the Christmas pictures we rec'v in a little album on the coffee table so we can look at the photos all year round.
