my outline for december

Start working today on addressing Christmas cards. If you want one from me, you'd better send me one, cuz that's how I'm working it this year! (ok, not really, but it's tempting!)

Finish my class next week, Tuesday. Thanks to all of you who have been asking, my Anatomy & Physiology II class is going great! I have a 97% which really kicks last semester's class's butt.

Finish Fall sports with kiddos #2 and #3 in the next two weeks. It really is exhausting having two practices and two games a week--and this is with only 2 kids in sports! How families with 4, 5, 6+ kids in extracurricular activities do it is beyond me!

Participate in Stake and Ward Christmas music programs over the next two Sundays. You're all invited to attend--I can get you particulars on where and when. Just the chance to see me muddle through Handel's Messiah Hallelujah Chorus should be entertainment enough!

Get back on track diet-wise TODAY. I did so well all year long, and then October hit and it's all been downhill from there! I keep gaining and losing the same 10 pounds, which is very frustrating, but at least I'll end up the year around 20 lbs lighter than I started it. *shrug*

Read at least 5 more books. With my semester ending and one more road trip in the future, I think it's possible. I love reading. Right now I am in the middle of several series: "Children of the Promise", "Sisters of the Quilt", and "The Great and Terrible." I'm also in the middle of the "Lemony Snicket" and "Mediator" books but had to take a break from them as I was starting to hate them. ;)

Have more patience.

Have more patience.

Have more patience.

Have more patience.

I tell you what, I've been ready to dial up Super Nanny recently! My kids bicker and fight like crazy, they act immature, and make me ready and willing to dial 911 myself! Exactly when does it get easier? *smile*

There's more, but these are the things I feel are doable in the next few weeks. How will you round up 2009?

You will have to keep us posted on your progress. Sounds wonderfully busy! I will be making some gifts, buying some gifts, growing my hair (it is almost long), baking (trying) and trying to be jolly.
Merry getting ready for Christmas!

Great Christmas pics! Is it the Naughty season at your house?

You stay so busy and you're doing a great job with your classes.

How's your weather? It's 6.1 degrees this morning here in Eastern WA, high today supposed to be 22.

I'd send you a card, but I don't think I have your address.

Merry Christmas!

I am trying to get Christmas shopping done, the house ready to move, a trip to Disneyland (because I have lost my mind) in before Christmas and every day stuff done without remembering that I am moving to Texas in 3 weeks!

I am sick to my stomach just thinking about it.
