Thanksgiving came and went and all I got for it was this lousy 4 day weekend.
Just kidding! It’s been a great weekend and I had my fair share of turkey, dressing, scalloped potatoes, creamed corn, homemade cheesecake, chocolate covered peanut butter balls and anything else that might have slipped under the food radar.
Now? We’ve got the Christmas trees up (yes, I said tree(s) because Noah wanted one in his playroom), got some lights outside, garland and a couple of small wreaths Jenn thought would be “cute” on the windows. All we’re lacking is presents … most of which, Santa is bringing this year, so there is little to wrap.
Unfortunately, things will be a bit tighter this year as far as gifts go due to our very, very, very light work schedule and predicted 2 to 3 weeks off without pay. Jenn isn’t happy about this, as we normally have a well stocked Christmas, but it is partially our own fault for not being as prepared as we should be.
Honestly? It’s all good, though.
To touch on a slightly gloomier note: we found out a little over a month ago that Jenn was preganant and we were expenting a second child. Last week, however, we found out that, due to something with her bloodcount, she had miscarriaged. It’s been an up and down week and still isn’t over. I won’t go into details, but those who have been through it before know what I’m getting at.
I’m off for now, finishing up some chores and checking out a few things online. Then tomorrow, it’s back the daily grind.
