Time for an Update!

Hello, All!

Well, it has been almost two months since my last update. I figure I am about due! I wish I could say that a lot has been going on, but, alas it has not!

Christmas was spent just the three of us this year. Josh loved Christmas, and all Santa brought him. He is a pretty special little boy. We are very fortunate for his continued good health and happiness. My dad and Pauline came down the Friday after Christmas and spent the weekend with us. They got us the Wii Fit for Christmas. Wii love it! Josh got lots of games and puzzles for Christmas. He loves puzzles, so those might have been his favorite gifts. We also went to church on Christmas Eve. Church started at 5. We got there at 4:10. By 4:30, it was standing room only. Crazy!

Jeff is staying busy with work. He has travelled to Iowa for two separate weeklong trips. So, a couple of times, I have done the single parent thing. I realize how lucky I am to have Jeff, but it is on those weeks that I appreciate all he does for us the most!

I, too am staying busy with work. With the economy the way it is, everyday is a crap shoot! I just show up, work hard, and thank the good Lord that I have a job for another day. Work is very stressful due to the economic downturn, but this has been a better week. Some days I am not as optimistic! Listen to me complain... awful! I am very lucky to have a job, and to work with some of the nicest people that I have had the pleasure of knowing!

Josh is staying busy... mostly with birthday parties and Scooby Doo. We are going to our 10th birthday party in three months this weekend. I am hoping for a break soon! He does enjoy them though! He is doing really well at school (as far as we know!) Jeff attended the preschool's monthly prayer service today. It was in honor of Josh's classmate Sarah Macy, who lost her battle with cancer in September.

Two weeks ago Jeff and I were lucky enough to attend a Jessica Simpson (boo!) and Rascal Flatts concert with our friends Kara and Jeff Green. Jeff (Green) was able to score us some awesome tickets... 10th row floor. AMAZING! It was a really fun time!

Well, I think that is about all that is new with us! Jeff is playing Mario Kart with his brother Brad as we speak. We got Guitar Hero this weekend. Jeff hates it. I think that he now knows how I feel when we play Mario Kart! Poor guy just doesn't have the coordination for it! Josh likes to jam with me though!
