I finally got my wallet sized pictures in the mail for my Christmas cards! Yippee!
What??? You ask if I've even got my cards done yet? ummmm....well no!
I've been running ragged for far too many days in a row and sheer exhaustion got the best of me. At least everything I've been up to has been way fun and totally worth it. I haven't even been home long enough to do any of my chores. Do you think that ANY of the boys have done their chores either? and big NO on that one too! The house is starting to suffer from neglect, so someone had better step up the the plate around here.
Got cramps...took midol...midol has caffeine...who knew?...not me! Should read the labels first.
Wide awake emailing, blogging, printing pictures, writing a letter from Santa to my nephews, looking for girls camp craft ideas, etc. Everything but sleeping at 1:42 a.m and we have an 8:00 a.m meeting at the school. I'm a lucky girl, I tell ya! Off to bed to stare into darkness in hopes I fall asleep soon.

We are coming out there this friday. I also had a question about the dinner. I was wanting to invite some people and my family. Not alot of people though. I just wanted to make sure it was ok with you guys.

I didn't know Midol had caffeine. I am fortunate, I suppose, that I next to never have cramps. Instead, I have nausea.
Sorry I got so behind in my blog visiting. Thanks for stopping by the other day. We lost our house after a year long court battle ... the seller never gave us title and the judge sided with the seller, even though we had already put 100,000 down on the house, had a signed contract, and put in about 60,000 in improvements. It doesn't seem right to me, but I'm sure there is a blessing in this, and I feel at peace. Things will come out alright in the end. I think my mind has been on our "worries" quite a bit this year, even though I feel like I should just "let go" and "Let God" handle it. He is. I'm sure it will come out OK. I just wanted to explain why I have been scarce. I just haven't felt much like visiting. Seems like I have had a lot of that this year due to one reason or another, huh?
But I sure love your blog, and I think you are just super too. I love your honest shares and I still remember my visit with you very fondly. Merry Christmas my friend!
p.s. You look super!

I can't believe you took midol at bedtime. It does seem silly that it would have caffeine. lol I'm so sorry! Hopefully you'll get some sleep tonight. :)

Christmas card looks cute!

Hope you were able to get a little sleep Jolene! And I hope your cramps got better.

Love, love, love the beautiful Christmas cards you're making...and your family picture will make them even more special.

Hey Jolene, sorry you have been running rampant. Thanks for sending the Santa letter. The boys are excited and I think a little scared because they are afraid they will go on the naughty list. We've been singing you better watch out, you better not cry....A LOT! Love ya, see ya soon

Hi Jolene! Merry Christmas to you and your family! I just wanted to let you know that I changed my blog name to www.justvida.blogspot.com

Also, I LOVE your photos! I haven't received my photos yet, so the Christmas cards are going to be late this year. :( Bummer!

I hope you are well and God Bless!

BTW, I think I have the restless leg syndrome too!
