Preparations continue

I’m working toward the move to the farm while planning our Christmas trip. (I’m taking the kids on a cruise instead of doing a traditional holiday this year.) Honestly, with everything that’s been going on, I could use the break.

Of course, despite my long-term planning, the day is coming at me quickly, and I still have not finished all the preparations, the shopping, the packing, the “stuff” affiliated with this trip. I will, but it’s starting to be a source of stress rather than the holiday stress relief I’d hoped it would be.

In the meantime, I’m failing to blog everyday (although I do blog on other sites and Twitter fairly regularly), despite my joining of the blog every day in November club.

Byron is sick and Alex is just now starting to sound better (no more coughing all day and night) and I’m starting to feel pretty bad myself. Mommy never seems to escape a one-two punch of kid illness (not this Mom anyway). I hope this time is the exception, rather than the rule. I simply don’t have time to be sick right now.
