Yeah, I'm a slacker. Do you ever feel like your life isn't worth writing down? In church on Sunday we talked about the importance of a journal, and though I don't write everything down, I consider this as much of a journal as anything. I decided I'd blog, even though there really isn't anything to blog about.
I'm doing my best not to get stressed out about the holidays, the money, the time I have to spend at work, the time I get to spend with family...but I fail. In my daily life I am a relatively organized person. I have time to do things that so many of my friends say they don't have time for- my house stays mostly clean, I get places on time and I usually have everything I need...I am very blessed. But the Holidays come around and I feel less and less "in order." I get overwhelmed with good intentions, and totally let down when I am unable to follow through. I'm not the only one am I?
Yesterday I took Ali to the dentist for the most obvious cavity I've ever seen, only to find out that it needs a "pulpotomy." Which is dental for "baby tooth root canal." Which is financial for "HOLY SH*%" It's almost Christmas and I get to spend 400 dollars on a tooth that's going to FALL OUT! But, if we pull it? Well, that could cause all kinds of "problems" which is dental for "expenses" in the future! KIDS! I know she doesn't want a root canal for Christmas...but...
So, what's the bright spot? I am the new buyer for a scrapbook store here in town...and I'm totally excited about it. I won't get paid except to get the stuff I want, but that's great! I get to shop, and buy what I want with someone elses money and even keep some of it! FUN! I already have a ticket to New Moon and get to see it on Thursday- and I'm ahead on a few things for Christmas. So here's to the season- and here's to trying!
19 years BABY!
