Yes, we are still alive, just been really busy. School and work are going good for both of us and the countdown to Thanksgiving break has already begun…only 11 more school days! I really don’t have much to update, just thought it was time to get back into this. We started buying decorations for Christmas over the weekend. We bought just enough ornaments to decorate a tree and have a few things up around the house, but I am going to wait and buy a whole bunch of stuff after Christmas when it all goes on sale. Not a whole lot more to report from the weekend…I got sick Saturday so poor Matt had to spend most of Saturday night and Sunday taking care of me. I know he doesn’t mind, but I always feel bad. And now I’m pretty sure Matt is getting sick with whatever I have, so it looks like our roles will be reversed when he makes it home today (poor thing, I inherited the “Stone Cold Kathy” genes from my mom and tend to be less than sympathetic when people are sick). I stayed home from school today…so my poor kids had to deal with a sub…or maybe the poor sub had to deal with my kids…who knows which is more accurate. (probably the latter, unfortunately). Assuming both of us are feeling better, we’ve planned a trip to Houston for this weekend to spend some time with his family and start some Christmas shopping. Have a good week everybody and I promise the next update won’t take so long.
