DOES ANYBODY REALLY KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS.......

DOES ANYBODY REALLY CARE?

I care and it is really bothering me! The busiest time of the year is approaching and I feel so behind already. 

I haven't had time to read and respond to emails let alone blog posts. This is a part of my daily life, it is my pleasure to read your posts. 

Heck, I haven't even been able to clear my DVR since I got home from Florida and each day it fills up more.

It isn't going to get any easier over the next 35 days until Christmas! Please understand that I may not be over to visit with you. 

I realize that this sounds silly to some of you but I love my blog friendships and I love knowing what is going on with you. I am bummed about it but I also need to eliminate stress from my life. 

So between now and Christmas I will do all that I can to visit but if I don't show up please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers always. 


Something I haven't shared is the fact that Amber and Dylan are moving to Montana. Dylan is already there and starts work tomorrow. 

He got a great offer from the hospital in Great Falls Montana and we are very excited for them. He also just found a duplex for them to rent. It is more economical for them to survive in Montana than to get caught up financially in California! 

Mark and Amber, along with their dog Charlie, will be driving their belongings in a U-Haul with her car behind it and will be leaving on the 29th. 

Amber, Dylan and Charlie will not be here for Christmas this year. So needless to say, along with everything else I've bee dealing with, I am still a little down. 

But I will do all that I can to make this a beautiful Christmas because there is always so much to be thankful for and  I always trust in God's plan for us. 
Thank you for listening, I love you guys.......

That doesn't sound silly at all because that's how I feel about my blog friends and my blog. It's kind of sad when I don't post I don't get any email so I miss everyone :). No worries on not getting around to visit. You'll catch up when you're ready. Take time for yourself and de-stress

Love the photo of them in their onesies! Very funny. I wish them all the best in Montana.

Just come over when you have a minute, and when you don't, no worries!

I was just telling my husband that I can't believe it's November 20! Christmas will be here before I know it! I totally understand about not having enough time. I know you'll always be there. ;)

I am so excited for Dylan and Amber! They really will enjoy Montana. It will be difficult without them for Christmas, but maybe think of one new tradition you can do so that it will be different and you can think about that rather than dwelling too much on them being gone. Just take care of yourself and do what you need to get done, blogs are always here waiting for when life slows down. Safe travels to Montana for Mark, Amber, and Charlie. I hope the weather cooperates.

What an adorable picture of the 'kids' and Charlie in the onesies! Like everyone else has said, deep breaths and don't let your expectations weigh you down. (I'm not going anywhere!)

I get that Debby. This can be such a hectic season. Appreciate your bloggings. Wish you a great season of joy.

I care and I know exactly what you mean - the hurried-er I go the more be-hinder I get. lol This time of year - and it is wonderful - it is just so busy. You have a lot going on. And I also know how it is not to have your kids home for Christmas - you survive - but it always hurts just a little bit.

I never have been able to figure out a way to make it slow down so I can just enjoy it. I totally hear you. Same here.

Awww I'm sorry that Dylan and Amber won't be there for Christmas. This stage of life brings so many things for us to adjust to and they aren't usually easy adjustments. You're in my prayers. I think that Betty has a good idea about starting a new tradition. It won't take missing them off your mind, but it will give you a way to redirect those feelings and make something good of a mama-heart tugging situation.

I hope that all goes well for them in the big sky country known as Montana. The scenery up there is absolutely beautiful according to pictures that I have seen. :)

Have a blessed day and a very Happy Thanksgiving. {{{Love & Hugs}}}

Take care my friend. Relax and don't push yourself.

Well, obviously I understand! I posted the first blog in over a year today! Although, I keep up with you on Facebook......I know you'll be sad for Amber to move, but it sounds like a good move for them.....
Have a good Thanksgiving!
