It's almost the weekend

I'm not even going to post this with the other mesasge, that was just to get it off my chest. Done, finito.

I'm very excited for this weekend, first of all I get to see my honey again. It's been since Sunday, and yes we talk quite a few times a day but still I haven't seen him. Tomorrow night we are going to Longwood Gardens. It is a beautiful 1050 acre place that one of the Duponts had as ahome and kept it as an agricultural keepsake for time. They decorate the house and grounds for the holidays, there are indoor and outdoor displays and of course now is decorated for lights. I can't wait to go and see the beauty of it all. Then Sat is errand day and relaxing, we are going to kick back and watch some movies and just hang. Sat night is up in the air as they are talking 'winter storm'...yikes I am so not ready for snow's too soon. Anyhow tonight is football and then Sunday again. What a great kid free weekend it will be. I need a little downtime from my children, whom I dearly love, but I need to be kidfree and just enjoy Michelle for a change.

We did get the Christmas tree up on Tuesday night, it came out just beautifully and we all enjoyed the evening together as a family. I'm slowly getting into the spirit of the season which seems to take longer and longer to come, but it is one holiday that I truly love and cherish. I think mostly work being so busy makes it harder on me. I have not one gift purchased but at least the ideas are starting to form as to what to get these kids. I do have to figure ot what to get the guy, that could be more of a challenge right now.

I've been stabalizing in my weight, finally!! I was really worried there for a bit, but I think the combined stress and everything going on was taking it's toll on me, time to put Michelle back up there front and center. I've dove back into exercise, which was lacking for a better term the past week and eating is being more monitored. No more sour stomach and such. I just felt blah. No more, the last two days of healthy eating has definitely done wonders for me and my outlook on things.

DS2 is getting contacts tonight, he is so excited. I think he's a little apprehensive but it will be ok. I know it's a total vanity thing for him....but he is a teenager now!!

I'll leave you with this:

We put up our tree today. Everything looks so pretty. I'm glad you are enjoying yourself with your honey.

My oldest got contacts when she was in middle school. She loves them.
