Good, bad, indifferent...
So, remember that iPhone I supposedly won? Well, I haven't seen it yet. I've called to make sure I didn't miss something, but undoubtedly it hasn't come in yet. It's a little frustrating. I'm sad, b/c I can't afford to get it hooked up, so I'm going to have to end up selling it. Of course, I'd have to have it to sell it. I plan to use the money I get from it to help pay for a vacation Trey is about to bust to take in the new year. I figure that would be good. He will really make out from my winnings. I already gave him the iPod I won. It's pretty neat. The screen is really small, but SO CLEAR. I watched a movie on it the other day, and even though it was tiny, you could see everything with plenty of detail. I was impressed!

So tonight it's supposed to get down to freezing here. That might not seem like anything to anyone outside of SC, but it's a pretty big deal here. While there were blizzards and power outages from freezing in the midwest and pretty much everywhere else in the world, here it's been like summer for the last couple of weeks. I've kinda felt guilty for being out enjoying such nice weather while people a few states over huddle together in bundled clothing with fires to keep warm. There were even people dying! The only way to die here would be if you had suffered from heat exhaustion or something! I was on the verge of turning on the a/c, but I refused (we really needed it, though). There's just something seriously wrong about using your air conditioning in the middle of December! Finally, though, I can wear my sweatshirt I bought and promised myself I'd wear every single day of winter!

Other than that, no big news going on here. I'm trying to make it to and through Christmas. I'm sure I'm not the only one, though. I hope you're having a great week, and I'll see you soon!

This guy is the BEST Santa EVER!
He was so patient with my kids, even though he'd been there for hours already, still had hours left, and had seen TONS of not-so-fun kids already! I LOVE him!

Taryn insisted on bringing that book with her. She found it in my closet, and it's some women's devotional book...not even any pictures!

Oh, and I just put these here for your viewing pleasure. They make me smile!

In that second one, Cole's dead asleep! He couldn't even stay awake to finish his sucker!

Have a great day! I'll talk to you later.

Gone, Daddy, gone!
It was brought to my attention today that someone in the world still comes here to see if I've written anything, and, sadly, finds nothing new usually. Yes, yes, it's true. I have been a blog loser lately. I just don't "feel" it. You know what I mean? I don't feel motivated to write on here, and usually don't even want to look (although I still force myself, to keep up w/other people's lives...can't get behind on what's going on w/other people, right?).

So, another reason for my absence has a lot to do with the fact that I have been busy, busy, BUSY lately. I feel like all I do is wake up for the day, feed the kids, run errands, feed the kids again, play, take a nap, feed them again, put them to bed, clean, then go to bed for three hours before I wake up to go to work, everyday. Oh, and then there's the whole new job I have. I spend three hours on Tuesday night, and two on Wednesday morning, delivering papers. Fun. It's helping on the money front, at least.

Hey, I've got a question for you. Since I know most anyone I think might still read this, I probably won't get much of an answer, but...Do any of you tip your newspaper delivery person or mailperson? If you do, or know someone who does, how much? I'm hoping to get some tips from my route, but I have no idea how it works, and I'm curious. Of course, I guess I could just wait and find out, but I'm so not good with the whole waiting thing!

Oh, get this: I finally get ahead of things and take the kids to get Christmas pics at the beginning of last month. I just took them to Wally World, b/c I was planning just to get the special deal. Of course, I got talked into a larger, much more expensive package that I couldn't afford. Nonetheless, I was excited to get pics of my beautiful babies. I went to pick them up today, and they messed them up. The main pic of them all together wouldn't print for some reason, so now I have to take them back to take the pic again! It was not easy getting them ready and taking them up there, and then actually taking a decent picture of them. Then you have to wait two weeks, too. I already waited almost a month for these! I was planning on sending out cards w/their pics in them (the package came w/about three million wallet sized pics!), and now I can't. Well, I could, but I might get some strange looks when people receive their Christmas cards on January 10th! I'm so bummed. Naturally, too, all three of them are now in dire need of a haircut, so I'll have to do that before I go so they will look human again! Boo, boo, boo! That's the last time I go to Wal-Mart for pictures. It's been a big disappointment all around!

Okay, well, I gotta go find some food for dinner now. I hope you have a great day, and I'll see you later.
