I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the thought that Christmas is just 10 days away. Where oh where has the time gone?

So many things I am not doing this year, simply because time has gotten away from me in a huge way. I arrived home on Friday and will be here for a couple weeks. The longest stretch in 5 months. Best case scenario would be for me to be home until after New Year's but that's too far ahead for me to call at this time. I literally take one day at a time anymore and I cherish (sometimes as hard as it is) each day.

Normally my Christmas cards go out by the first week of December. Sorry to say they won't be making it out at all unless I bust my ass to do them like tomorrow. No sweat, those who know me know what's going on and would be extremely forgiving it they didn't get a card in the mail.

Life for us changed on August 1st. It is the day my mom was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. Wow. It hasn't even been three years since dad passed away from colon cancer. Sort of sucks the joy of the holiday season right out of ya. But as always we will plug on.

Many thanks to my dear husband who literally has taken over maintaining THE WHOLE HOUSEHOLD. He does it all and I couldn't be more thankful. Many thanks to my dear friends who have been beside me hearing me out on all my frustrations (and there are MANY) and tears. I love you girls!

We'll have nice Christmas, just the four of us. It may be a scramble mamble to get it all done, but it will all get done. Minus the cards most likely, that is~

I'm so glad that you're getting some time home with your husband and children for Christmas. I keep your mom in my prayers and I hope she continues to get stronger!

I haven't even bought cards yet. LMAO so don't worry about sending any my way.

I can't believe Christmas is next week. I still have lots to do but I work better under pressure anyway!

Have a great time at home. You deserve a break!

I'm thrilled that you are able to be home for a much needed rest and break. I think you should just enjoy being with the husband and kiddos for now and don't worry about the rest. I am not sending out Christmas Cards this year for other reasons and of course we know your situation and totally understand why you won't be sending them either. My Christmas wish for you is peace. Love ya biatch!!!
