Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

It's Heeeeeeere!

Yes, Christmas time is here. Yikes! How did it sneak up on me like that? As I was falling asleep last night I started to have a panic attack. I haven't started shopping yet, my trees are in place but there are no decorations, I mean, it's December 2nd already ... what's wrong with me?
OK, I know, I know. I still have lots of time. Maybe the panic attack had something to do with the fact that the radio station I listen to is now all Christmas music, and last night was our first official Christmas event with the Band.

Maybe I need to turn the radio off, and have a cup of tea. I like that idea.

So, the retreat this past weekend went well. We had a really good time. As usual, I took too much stuff, got far too few things accomplished, ate way too much, slept too little, and laughed until my sides hurt. Perfect weekend! It doesn't get much better than that.

It was our 22nd anniversary over the weekend. Can you beleive it? How is that possible? It has just gone so fast. I know it may be cliche, but I would marry John all over again. He is my other half and together we are whole. No matter what life throws at us, it just makes our relationship stronger.

OK, enough of the sappy stuff, LOL!

It was also my birthday on Monday. 48! FORTY EIGHT!!!!! I spent the day with my friend, Deb. We went for lunch and then we went dress shopping for her wedding. She already has her gown so we were looking for a Maid of Honor dress. We found one, and I love it!
We were going to go out for dinner as a family, but by the time we were all home, I had a headache and I was still exhausted from the weekend so I ended up crashing on the couch and we ordered in. Much better! The best part of the day ... getting a kiss from all my boys!


  1. Happy Anniversay and also Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had an awesome weekend. The kiss from all your boys sounds like the best part. I was just thinking about posting something about my little Ethan's kisses. They are like so sweet. Hugs my dear friend.

  2. Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday! Sounds like a fun week!

  3. Wow Barbara, there were so many things worth celebrating in the past few days! :) Happy anniversary and Happy belated birthday to you. I'm happy that you had a wonderful weekend away. And just think that there are people with even less Christmas stuff done (like me) and it will make you feel better! LOL

  4. Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary. I'll spare you and refrain from singing to you this time. Enjoy your holiday season too.

  5. Happy belated birthday, Barbara!!! It sounds like you're doing just fine; no panicking needed. :P

  6. Happy belated anniversary! Wishing you and your husband many more years of happiness together! And happy birthday to you too. :)
