Nathan is finally feeling better. It has taken him a week and a half to get back to himself. Although he does still have a never ending stream of snot coming out of his nose, aside from that, he is fine.
Haley has a bit of a cold, but it doesn't seem to anything major. We had 17 inches of snow come down yesterday. I start my new job on Monday, so I am praying that all the illness, snowfall and anything else that could derail me on my first week of full time work at a new job is now out of the way. It's been a long couple of weeks.
I have so much Christmas shopping to do, it's not even funny. So this is what I'm going to do. Gift certificates for everyone except my kids' Santa presents! It's all I have the mental capacity to handle. I know it's less personal, but hey, at least everyone will be able to get something that they really want. I love the holidays in a lot of ways. I love the lights, the smell of the Christmas tree and the music, but I hate shopping. Don't get me wrong, I like to give presents. I just hate shopping and that goes for any time of year. So around the holidays, when there is a spike in shopping responsibility, I start to panic. I really, really hate it beyond words. I guess I'm not your stereotypical female. I would gladly leave all shopping up to someone else if I could. That's not realistic, so I'll just make the most of it I suppose.
I am nervous about starting a new job. You know, the new period of not knowing anyone and knowing that you are being judged with every interaction that you have. Learning how to navigate around a new company, who does what and all that. I expect to be pretty stressed and tired for the next few weeks.
On that note, I should go try to get everything in my house in order, because I think all house related duties are going to hit the back burner for the next couple of weeks. I hope hubby will pick up some of the slack. He probably will, he’s pretty good about that, but we’ll see.
Bye for now.
