Happy New Year!
To all my nonexistent readers. Upon further review of suggestions from experts I have decided to try to do a little more with this blog. I will still include my occasional thoughtful ramblings on my new found philosophies or insight into the world, but also I will try to keep this a little up to date on my life and the oh-so major changes and happenings I experiences.
So besides being sick over most of break and Christmas my Christmas was very nice. I received many wonderful gifts and was able to buy gifts for everyone thanks to the generosity of coworkers and parents of the children in my classroom who gave me many gift certificates. I received many wonderful gifts from my family and friends, and am so thankful for them. The best of my holiday time has been being able to see my family everyday. It is so wonderful to have them around. They are a constant joy around me, it is so wonderful. I can't believe how much Landon has grown!! He knows so much! I feel a little sad that I am missing out on so much at home, but I know it is all for the best. While Grandma has been in Rehab the family has made some major changes to the house and it is great. We now have a projector to watch movies with in the TV room and a new recliner. Krystle has done an amazing job straightening bookshelves and dusting and reorganizing. She has no idea how much she has helped me out. I constantly feel burdened from the many unaccomplished tasks here and the need for them to be done and my inadequacy to finish them. Krystle has so much talent with those types of projects, and I lack extremely in that area. I feel like crying almost every time I see it. These things being done give me more time to work on basic things such as shopping, household chores, cooking, running errands, attempting to keep my room clean, keeping pets happy and healthy while working a little to ends from being to tight. It is such a relief and a big boost to me when I needed it the most.
I have been able to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Trish, and Aunt Christy. I miss them a lot and wish I could see them more often. It is sad that even though I live there I hardly see them at all, still only when the rest of the family is here. But I know they are all busy, and it is just good to see them when I can. I do get to go out and see Grandma and Grandpa Monks a little. I haven't for a while since the snow has come in. I hope to do better with visiting them when Spring comes around.
Grandma is finally back, and it is so wonderful to have her back. I have a few snow days to spend with my family on their last few days here, and it really has been a wonderful Christmas time. <3
