Christmas Vacation and Basketball

Football is over and I was looking forward to basketball season for a little break in the rushing around. It isn't exactly happening the way I planned it. With Elijah playing on his Jr. High team and PC Hoops, Adam playing on the freshman team and Jullien and Dillon are playing PC Hoops schedule is still crazy! I've been getting home at 9 or 10 every night!

I'm starting to do a countdown for my vacation...I can't wait to get away, three years is just too long. In the meantime I'm trying to find some place for my dog to stay. I don't want to put her at one of those boarding places. They just keep them in cages and then take them out for walks. Allie (my husky) NEVER is put in a cage...she will lose her mind! So I've been racking my brain trying to think of someone who can keep her for us.

As with any trip there is so much planning and I'm a spur of the moment type of person, this organizing and scheduling stresses me out. On top of it all, Elijah goes in for foot surgery on Tuesday, then he has to stay off of school the rest of the week before vacation. I've been contacting his teachers to try and get all of his homework lined up so he isn't swamped with work when he gets back from vacation.

I still have done ZERO Christmas shopping. I have to get something for all of my family in Utah and my kids to take with us since we'll be arriving on Christmas Eve...which is usually the day I do ALL my shopping, (terrible procrastinator). I need to by for my step kids since they can't come with us and Anthony's family. I'm working everyday and we will be leaving on the 23rd right after I get off work...I'M RUNNING OUT OF TIME!!!

This weekend we have both football banquets for Jullien and Elijah, 3 basketball games, and I get to go on my birthday photo this weekend is definitely out. Knowing me, I will wait till the 22nd to do anything and then yell at my poor husband because I need help. Uh oh, I'm getting stressed talking about all of this stuff...I'm going to bed so I don't have to think about it! HELP!!!

Ok busy might have to skip a couple of games or something so you don't get too stressed out. And you'd better not be buying anything for the family in Utah...just worry about your own. Can't wait til you get here!
Love you!
