Christmas time in the City

Surviving the holidays.

It has been a fairly nice holiday season this year. The special days have gone well and there were no Major catastrophies. I have to admit it might have been almost relaxing. However, I would not put in that category as of yet. I am now home for 2 weeks with my lovely cherubs. Here is a photo of our Christmas cooking baking experience.

Careful Cora. She is using the new yellow, after Sam sneezed in the 1st batched. We call that "loved" food at our house.

David did 4 or 5 cookies Very well.

Do you need more sprinkles, Sam??

They did a very wonderful and complete job on the cookies. It was nice Grandma Polly could join us.

Spongebob Squarepants

I love Spongebob Squarepants. He is so wonderful and makes me laugh. Just now, I am working on the computer. Sam is sitting next to me playing with magnets, and the noise coming from the other room is none other then SB himself. He is so adorable and completely entertaining. K~

Trimming the fat

Shedding Fat. I need to shed my body fat! Dah!!! But what about other "fat" I have insulated myself with??? worries, fears, need to do it NOW projects?? If I drew a picture of myself right now, what would it look like??

Ok, that's a bit depressing. Maybe I need to work on my self image a bit. However.....I can't ignore it either. I've got a lot of work to do.

I need to look at the day in a whole different way. I thought it might be interesting to look at today with the perspective of what I might say about it in say.... 5 years. I find that I am very aware of the "hind sight is 20/20" phenomenon. When I look back at the times I wished for this, hoped for that, and never focused on what is working for me now, I got my priorities all askew.

Today, I need to look at what IS working and how to build on that. I am trying not to focus on what is NOT working. I get overwhelmed with that concept. Too much is appearing to "not go my way".

Maybe I could feel and look a bit more like this on a daily basis.

So the journey begins..... Hopefully, I don't sit down and have a snack and a nap before I even get started!!

Crafting is a good thing

(Part of a book mark based on Van Gough's sunflower painting)

I have been working my little fingers to the bone. I really enjoy the arts and crafts. I am working on bookmarks, scarves, slippers and mini clay sculptures. I am not going to get it all done by the holidays. I hope that the holidays can include January and February too!!

Here is a beautiful photo of our tree. I had something else in mind, but, when you have a 4 year old as your decorator, this is what you are going to get~ Notice the height of the garland. (When S requested the garland, it was for the walls, or so I thought.)

Wow. What a day already. My little D just can not get a handle on leaving me for the school day. I had to leave him in a puddle of tears in the office with Holly their gym teacher ( and our support person at school). Oh my, how it is hard to go do my daily routine when I have that on my mind. Then, at the same time I am tearing him away from me, C comes to me with the Nurse. She needs her inhaler and is wheezing badly today!! What a day! and it's only Noon! K~
