12 Books of Christmas

I usually love Christmas but this past Christmas with so much going on and traveling I feel like I missed out on the fun of Christmas. Don’t get me wrong I loved every minute of our Disney Christmas Vacation and Disney Christmas Cruise and we are all so very thankful to the family that had to lose someone so my Aunt could get her new to her kidneys. So to keep Christmas going I have decided to do 12 books of Christmas. Each month I will read at least one Christmas book. Book number one:

First Disney Cruise

Three weeks ago this morning we got off our first Disney Cruise. The question is not will we go back but when? We loved cruising with Disney. I don’t honestly know if we would cruise with a different cruise line after taking a Disney Cruise. Castaway Cay (Disney’s Island) is amazing. I would have been fine if we only stopped there. It is so beautiful and Disney has done a great job making it family and adult friendly. More to come soon.

Less Than Two Weeks To 35

As 35 inches closer and closer, it’s not that turning 35 freaks me out, it’s that it snuck up on me. I really can’t believe it is here already. As I said before age is just a number to me and you are as old as you feel, so 35 doesn’t freak me out like it does some. Yes I’m a little disappointed with myself that I haven’t accomplished more by this point in my life but that is my own fault. I will embrace 35 and hopefully use it as a turning point to maybe start accomplishing more.

Happy New Year: 2018 In Review A Year Of Firsts

I was so excited I was going to post this on Monday (New Year’s Eve) but then life had other plans, so here it is better late then never my 2018 in review. 2018 was a year of firsts for me, not all good.

🎉 First Disney Cruise

🎉 First ER visit (for both me and the three year old)

🎉 First visit to Frankenmuth Michigan

🎉 First visit to Gulf Shoes Alabama

🎉 First Candlelight Processional at EPCOT

🎉 First time calling in sick to work in the 8 years I’ve worked there

🎉 First Christmas we didn’t put a tree up or lights outside

Christmas Already

Where did November and December go?  It seems like just yesterday the Christmas movies were starting on Hallmark and now it is almost Christmas.  Here is where my November and December went.

First we went to Gulf Shores Alabama for a week, then it was Thanksgiving when we got back. Right after Thanksgiving my aunt had a double kidney transplant, we were in Disney World last week and on my first Disney Cruise over the weekend, and now it is time for Christmas.

What a world wind these last two months have been.  I still have Christmas gifts to purchase, but at this point, I really do not care.  It is what it is.  Oh and I forgot to mention two of the kids had birthdays this week.

I’m Still Here

I know it has been a while again, sorry.  Why is it when life throws stuff at you, it is almost more than you can handle?  I am not sure which way is coming and going right now.  I have no Christmas gifts purchased, I don’t know what to get people, let alone when I will find the time or energy to shop (yes even the queen of on-line shopping is too tired and too busy to shop on-line).  I did finally get to read a book a few weeks ago, but I have tons more I would like to get to.  I would really like to get a Christmas Romance or two in before the Christmas season is over.  More updates to come soon.
