December Twenty Second


It's 49 degrees and the wind has been blowing all day... it rained all day yesterday, so between the rain and the wind the sky is so blue and clean...
Today was my sixth day in a row working, only two more days of work and I am off Christmas day and the day after... the good thing is I go in early so I get off early... but getting up every morning before 5:30 am wears one out... luckily the boys are not up at the crack of dawn on Christmas morn so we can sleep in a bit...
I am grumpy today due to being tired and just grumpy... works not helping with some things going on... hoping next year at work will be better but then every year we change either the system or the supervisor so probably not... can never move forward and feel like we are being successful, just keeping it going...


Our Christmas movie marathon continues... we've seen Miracle on 34th Street and White Christmas...
the boys are enjoying their first week of vacation, sleeping in, barely getting dressed and playing video/computer games... son3 is having a blast... he does not need a Wii system as every system he plays he does not sit down but jumps all around while playing... he has been playing a football game and I think he has run all the yards...
son2 has a Christmas exchange tomorrow with the friends... they do it every year... it took two hours yesterday but they finally all got together in one spot and drew names from the Santa hat... he is now off with hubby picking up a few last things we forgot for Christmas and picking out his secret Santa gift... probably a CD... they didn't have the CD so he got Halo Legos...
son1 was off for two days and now has three days to work... still only getting about fifteen hours... and still planning on going to Disneyland with girlfriend's family this Christmas weekend...
I made a big pot of stew yesterday and a big pot of chicken soup the day before... waiting for hubby and son2 so we can heat it up... we are supposed to go look at neighborhood lights tonight but windy and cold so we shall see... the boys are happy with TV and just being comfy cozy so even if we don't go we are good...
The ham is thawing in the fridge... can't wait to get it in the oven on Christmas eve...
Holly is mad cause it is too cold to be outside and no one will sit long enough for her to get comfy on a lap and I won't let her sit on the laptop so she is in the garage on a time out as she is an ankle biter...
Son2's report card came today: Geometry D; PE B; Spanish 1 C; Psychology C; Computers A; World History C; English C; Biology D... he says next semester he is going to do better and he is not happy with himself for not doing his best the first half of the year or last year either....
Everyone is home, even son1 so heating up the soups...


Happy Journaling...

soup and stew sound good! it was very windy down here too; drove me crazy trying to walk Koda

at least son2 didn't fail any classes, hopefully seeing the grades on paper will help him to do better next semester

Hope today and tomorrow go well for you at work and then you can enjoy Christmas with your family. It's supposed to be in the 40's here on Christmas Day with rain. Right now there is very little snow left on the ground but it's cold. BrrrChill!

These are great movies! We have clear but cold days for the next couple coming up. Not like last year when we were all snowed in here in Seattle. Your background is great! I have so much wrapping to do!!!!
