Haven't been writing too much lately, as there just doesn't seem to be enough time. The past few weeks have been a little hectic getting things ready for our Christmas program at the church, doing Christmas shopping, dealing with losing my power steering, and waiting for J and T's baby to arrive. The baby has arrived (check out the "boys, boys, boys" link to the right), my power steering got fixed (at no charge to me), most of my presents have been purchased, and the kid's program went great. I was a little worried at the dress rehearsal...kids were running everywhere, they were constantly running to the bathroom or going to get a drink, only one preschooler sang their group song (and by singing I mean crying loudly), and only about half the kids showed up. But of course they pulled it together for the program and were on their best behaviour since their parents, grandparents etc were in the audience. Rascals. I also had to deal with a child being bullied at kid's club this past week, which was a bit of a nightmare as I love the victim AND the bully so dearly! They were both crying, and I was on the verge of tears as I dealt with them too. I hope something like this never happens again. Now on Friday, I'll be heading home to Cold Lake for a week, with a short trip to North Battleford thrown in there for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I still have lots to do before then...get in a visit with the new baby, deliver a present for a friend's kids, finish my shopping, pack, and clean up a bit before I leave...hope I can get it all done in a day! I do think that the thing that will save me is the fact that Wal-Mart is currently open 24 hours til Christmas. Lunacy.
