The past couple of months have been pretty crazy.  My work has been slow, my husband’s business lost some work and yet all our bills stayed the same.  We also added the insanity of basketball season for three kids.  We apparently like it when life is adventurous.

Thankfully, we only had two month of lost work for our business. The new year will bring new clients. They’ve already been signed. My work has picked up dramatically which is quite lovely too.

I realize this ebb and flow is normal for adult life.  Sometimes, I just wish I could cause it to flow at different times than it does.  Like everyone, we have the stress of Christmas.  I work to purchase gifts slowly through the year to ease some of that stress.  This year was no different.  Now, I am close to being done.  I have one gift to buy.  As usual, my husband and I did not buy each other gifts because we like to use what we have to spoil our kids.

At the same time, each year my office has a raffle. I buy tickets every time, and I have only participated in two raffles where I didn’t win anything in 8 years.  Today was the drawing and I won the grand prize. I am soooo excited!  Love winning.  Love getting things I would never buy myself.  I am now the excited owner of a Microsoft Surface.



It’s nearly here

My birthday is Thursday.  I’ll be 37.  I’m celebrating by decorating my house early for Christmas.  I realize that most people want to have Thanksgiving before they have Christmas.  I’ve never been a Thanksgiving fan so I am happy to just skip over.
