Christmas is in the air

Everything has been fine here, I just haven't been on to update.  My job is going just fine.  I am still really enjoying the group of kids I am working with this year.  They are so much fun.  Josh just wants to be done with school.  It is his senior year.  I do not remember feeling like that my senior year until closer to the end of the year.  Karl is still working full time, so we are doing ok financially.
I go visit my mom and dad every Friday after school.  My dad got new compression socks for his legs, but my mom cannot get them on him anymore, so they are having home health care come out and wrap them instead.  I wish I did not have to work so I could help, but we would not be able to pay our bills.  It is stressful for everyone.  My mom wants me there all of the time and I cannot do that.
Anyway, we did go spend the day with my parents on Thanksgiving and it was a nice day and a great meal.  My mom had asked me to move her furniture, so when we were down I asked her where she wanted it moved and she had changed her mind.  We offered to put up the Christmas tree, but she said no.  She is just so tired and overwhelmed.  We actually left a little earlier than normal, so hopefully they got some sleep.
Karl and I went Black Friday shopping, but not until later in the day on Friday and it wasn't to snatch up any deals, but we did get a new comforter set for our bed, new sheets for Josh's bed and a Shark mop for the kitchen.  We managed to get the house decorated for Christmas and we also got it all cleaned up.  I am doing laundry now getting ready to go back to work tomorrow.  We also ordered several Christmas gifts for family online.  We have a good start.  I am excited to get them wrapped and under the tree.  The dogs do not mess with anything believe it or not.
We have been watching the Hallmark Christmas movies and I have been enjoying them so much.  That is about it.  Nothing crazy going on.  I just thought I would drop in and make an update.  I hope you are all dong great and I will try to visit over Christmas Break.  Enjoy the holidays!


  1. Hi Lori, tag me if you again. Since I do not have blogger, I don't see when people post. Does your church have any assistance for your mom? Being a caregiver is very draining. I remember how hard it was for my dad. I drove down every weekend. I know it is hard when you are working. Enjoy the holidays. Hugs

  2. Hi Lori! I'm sorry your mom is having such a tough time with your dad. :( My husband was in the hospital on Christmas Eve having blood clots dissolved. It has been a very stressful and very odd Christmas around here. I did not even finish decorating my tree because my classes didn't finish until December 16th and then my last day of work was December 22nd, the day Dan went to the ER because his leg was all swollen up. Thankfully he was home Christmas morning, but the whole thing threw quite a monkey wrench into the festivities. I am glad that you are enjoying your job. I only enjoy mine occasionally. The morning preschool class has some very high need kiddos and so I feel like I'm running constantly. I am really enjoying my break! I hope you are too, sweetie. Have a very happy New Year! xo
