A Look At Our Week
I feel like we have been Christmas-ing forever! We are finally done! Ohio Family: check, Tennessee family: check, and finally today Virginia Family: check!
Cutler has been working so much, overtime almost every week that we were finally able to squeeze in some time for Christmas. He came down early this afternoon and will leave early in the morning to make it home in time for his shift. It’s been great having both my boys here! (Even if they did eat all the mac and cheese before dinner and a pitcher of sweet tea!)
No stopping in sight in the near future! After leaving Ohio on Christmas Eve we stopped for the night in London, Kentucky. It was great to have a little down time after such a busy week. We chilled in the hotel room and watched Christmas movies. Introduced my guy to A Christmas Story!
Christmas morning we headed to Gatlinburg, TN for Christmas with my family. The hotel dinner buffet was perfect! Then presents for Mom and game time! Later the girls took a trip to see the Christmas lights and were thrilled to find a McDonald’s open!
We spent the next day with my sister and her family seeing the nearby sights and shopping. We met up with some close friends that live in the area before heading home.
It all starts up again this week! Back to Ohio for a post-surgery visit then on to drum corps camp weekend. Then I’m back to Mom’s for another doctor’s appointment that will hopefully give us some answers! Then off to watch my girl dance in Memphis!
Hmm, well, we talked about going hiking this week! We even made plans to go do a trail with lots of creek crossings since we’ve had so much rain recently. A night of no sleep for me changed those plans though. We will be getting back in the grove very soon! Gonna be fit and fine in 2000, 1-9!
House Hunting News
I’ve had my week of pouting and I am mentally ready to move on with the process now. What’s meant to be will be! We have looked at listings this week and found one or two things that sparked our interest. Ideally, we’d like to find a house already built. The stress of building and decision making is not very appealing to either of us! Fingers crossed something will come along soon.
What’s for Dinner?
Christmas Dinner with my picky-eating child had to include chicken! Chicken Parmesan, macaroni and cheese, green beans and “Faux Granny” rolls with sweet tea! We are headed to a local restaurant later for our cinnamon roll dessert!
Slow and steady wins the race they say! I really hope when I return from my trip to Mom’s next week that my guy has this thing finished! We have debated on if we will frame this one once complete. We have framed a few that were special to us. This one really isn’t special, other than it’s taking forever to work! So, it will probably not have a spot on the wall of fame!
Have a great week! Happy New Year! Let’s all try to focus on the positives we have in our lives in this new year! XOXO
