End of Year

It's the end of the year and I am trying very hard to get some things wrapped up. I have a blanket for my niece, who will be 18 in Feb but that is another story, to finish, I need to get the files/receipts and whatnot together for taxes, and work on finding a house soon. I am never very good at doing this but I will have to get better at it because i am the only one who can do it. He is to busy working to do it. But of course it's hard because everytime I start to get something done, you know pull things out to get them organized, who has to call me wanting something? Nope not the child but hubby. He has the worst timing in the world sometimes.

But I think because he has to stop working in about 2 months things would get better for us. He is going to stop to get his license and then hopefully he will be able to get bigger jobs and bring in more money. I on the other hand will still be out of work,. I want to go back to school to get a degree in early childhood education so I can either run a daycare/preschool or be a kindergarten/1st grade teacher. I know that for the later it's a couple more years of schooling but it's a plan, you know. It's better than a few years ago when I didn't know what I wanted to do and I just a general idea.

A couple more days and then it will be 2008, can you believe it???? It seems like this year has flown by. When I have a chance to look through some f the pictures I have online I will post a slideshow of Savie just from this year and you can see the changes in her, I can't really see them, other than the fact that most of the clothes from the beginning of the year don't fit anymore, lol. But the coming of a new year has so many different meanings to it. It's a clean start, a new diet, a new house, new baby, etc. I hope that I have a chance to enjoy the old and as well as the new and just be happy with what I have.

The Holidays

Yes the holidays are here, a time for everyone to feel closer to the ones they love, to spread the cheer of the season, blah blah blah.

Now before you think that I'm some kinda of Scrooge stop and think about it for a minute.
~Why is that at the end of the year we suddenly feel it necessary to be kind to people?
~This is the time that everyone wants to 'give' to others for the sake of giving?
~We put up lights to show our 'Holiday cheer' and be 'festive'? (even if we go overboard and look like something out of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation)

It's not that different from my feelings on Valentine's day, but we will get to that later. This is when we want to be close to family not because of the holiday but because society has we have to. I want to be close to my family all the time, and I will get to see some of my family pretty soon yeah for me!!! A lot of people over do their house's in decorations and presents and food and then there are people who are looked at as hating Christmas because they don't go all out for the holiday but want to stay with their family and keep it low key.
That's where I am right now, wanting to keep things low key. That's what Thanksgiving was for us. It was just the 3 of us, turkey/stuffing/football. That's it, simple and sweet. There was no need to have everything prefect and looking just right when it's just the 3 of us, why am I trying to impress someone whose not here?
Now let me get back to the joy of the season.

I have not even started to get the presents for my own child but i have the presents for my niece and nephew in CA, who I am going to see in a few days, but I still need to wrap them before we leave because you know that just doesn't look right if I show up with them unwrapped. But it will be nice to see some of my family again. The only problem is they are all spread out that it would take a week to see everyone, lol. But I will be seeing a few people, I just wish that I had time to see my friend, K, who just had her 3rd baby so she is once again outnumbered in the house. 2 boys and a girl.

I have just gone off on such a ramble about the holidays but I am wishing everyone a happy and safe one, that they are simple plans that are enjoyed by everyone with as little stress as possible.
