I feel like I am neglecting my blog lately. Pooh...

I am not sure if it is because I really have had nothing terribly newsworthy to write about or that I just have not been creative enough lately to come up with something witty. Maybe both.

It has been a busy week since Halloween and I am beginning to feel like November through the end of the year is already filling up with lots of social occasions, deadlines, and appointments and that is starting to stress me out! Yikes. (Breathe)

I don't want to feel like that. I want to make sure I carve out some "down time" and time to enjoy special holiday traditions and not feel like the entire time is all hustle and bustle. I want to savor the season and all the festivities and joy that come with it.

There are lots of fun things coming up for us. We are going to see the play "The Lion King" this weekend. Bruce got me tickets for my birthday. I can't wait! We're going out to dinner and then to the play. It will be so much fun.

Then next week, we are going to Disneyland for Bruce's birthday. This year, Disney is offering free admission on your birthday and so we are taking advantage of it! Believe it or not, it has been close to 18 years since either of us have been. So in a way, it will be brand new for us. There are so many changes and new rides and improvements since way back then. And also it is a bit sad to know that some of the attractions that we so fondly remember, are no longer there.

My son, T will be coming home for two weeks, beginning November 25 until December 8. I am so excited! We are hosting Thanksgiving and I am excited about cooking for him and having family over while he is here. After his visit, he will be reporting to his new duty station in Norfolk, VA. I miss him very much, but I am also so very proud of him.

I know T is thrilled that I am not writing another post about my nails. I mean I could. I have plenty to say about that subject, but for my son's sake, I won't. This time. Love you, buddy!

I wanted to get my own version of your arrangement soooo bad! It looked so delicious. Thats awesome T is coming out! You guys are going to have a blast. Kent and I couldn't get Thanksgiving off and we have no money anyway, lol so we were planning on some chill time.

We're going up on Thursday night the 12th, spending the night and spending the day at DL on the 13th then spend the night and come back Saturday.

I don't get Veterans Day off.

Chillin' is a good way to spend the long weekend! Some down time with baby and hubby sounds perfect to me.

Tell T I'm only 12 hours from Norfolk if he ever needs a weekend of home cooked meals!
