so wow holidays suck. not in the sence that they are bad. just in the sence that it takes forever to recover from them and get shit back on track. the week before x-mas i went to my sisters and watched her son. who is smart and sweet and funny but can be whiney as hell. not to mention all the hang-ups he has. but that's a whole nother story. it's sufficient to say that he just had to deal with some of his issues 'cuz auntie wasn't having any of it.
durring that we had my family x-mas a truely crazy affair where we recived so much junk that i had to rearange my house to make crap fit. (no i'm not kidding) after that it was home to do x-mas with charles where he gave me a wonderfully thoughtful gift of scrapbooking stuff, (and it's actually stuff i'll use) he had given me my big gift earlier so i could use it while i was gone. (it was a digital cam corder. so nice) then that night we were off to charles's brother's there i was so bogged down with envy i almost cried. (they have done everything "right" went to colledge, got married, got the jobs they went to school for make good money and then had a house built for them, a beautiful 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath 2 car garage house with a basement. and they're only my age.) I want to hate them but they are just too nice.
anyway so sophie got spoiled and then the day after x-mas got sick and was horribly sick with a 100 plus temp for 5 days. nobody tells you that being a parent sucks because when they're sick all you want to do is make them better, and when their little hearts are breaking so do yours.
anyway after that tings started to get normal again. back to work and play dates and taking care of the house and wishing that i had 5 minutes to soak my feet.
hopefully this will be a better year for charles an i though. we've worked out a schedual so that i'm not always doing all of the parenting and whatnot. so i'll have some time to take care of my self like going to the gym. the 1st week and a half have gone ok. we'll see if he can keep it up. well i'd better get going. i have to sleep sometime. ta all. me
