*ACK!* Busy, busy, busy! Tired, tired, tired! For the past few nights, I've been getting about four hours of sleep. Due to that (and the cold stormy weather) my cold hasn't gotten any better. *poo!*

Yesterday Ashlyn and I spent the day with Grace and her lil' ones running all around town. After Aric got home from work, we ate a quick dinner while Rob and Brooke came over for a short visit. Afterwards, Aric and I spent the evening playing "Santa" (by delivering gifts to our friends). I really wanted to get that accomplished before my trip.
When all was done, we took advantage of Target's extended store-hours and bought stuff for the house and toiletries.

Today, Ashlyn and I met Aric for lunch. We stayed at Aric's work for a while afterwards so everyone could get a turn with the baby. hehehehe Ashlyn had so much fun and was really sad to leave her Daddy's work. =) The traffic driving home was horrendous...it took me nearly 40 minutes! Glenda came over this afternoon, and we went and walked around Costco for a bit. We picked up take-out for dinner and met Aric at home.

We had a full house tonight. Aunt Judy, Alex, and Jerry came over...and a financial planner also came over to meet with Aric. Aric sat with the financial planner and Aunt Judy for a couple of hours. While Glenda wrapped small gifts for her coworkers, I played and watched TV with Ashlyn, Alex, and Jerry. I think everyone left around 10pm.

I spent the rest of the evening running around like a chicken with it's head cut off...cleaning up the house, doing laundry, and finishing up on my Christmas cards. It's 2am, and I still have to pack for my trip. AIYAH! *slap forehead* =/

For the first time in a long while (if ever)...I have NO pictures to post. Sorry. =(

Totally looking forward to spending time with my family and friends back home. =)
Updates (and pictures) will resume when I get back. Just wanted to wish everyone a joyous and safe holiday! Bye y'all! =D
